Pinky Films as they are known are from a genre in Japan that thrived in the 70's . There stories where no different then most films raging from Classic Samurai stories to modern day Yakuza  , Gangs and so forth. 

There appeal is that for the time they had a selling point for offering the viewer scenes of nudity not seen in Japanese Cinema before.

Even though by today's standards most would not flinch a eye as modern day TV has a more excessive portrayal of such things.

There novelty with Pinky films was the nudity was often at times in the stories that you would not expect. The films often cast the hot new female stars who where willing to show more flesh then others .

A prime example is Sex and Fury from 1973 which sees Reiko Ike's character bare her chest whilst she's battling a mob with a Samurai Sword.
