Katsu, a fugitive youth on the run from the yakuza, returns to his birthplace and begins an affair with the cinema owner.
A Pinku cinema classic celebrated for its bold sexuality, director Tatsumi Kumashiro's scintillating erotic drama tells the tale of Katsu (Tetsu Oe), a man who flees to his childhood village after killing a member of the yakuza, and falls for a sexually liberated cinema owner while attempting to maintain a low profile. Refusing to reveal himself even to his mother, Katsu is crestfallen to find that Yuko, the object of his obsession, is in a long-term romance with someone he's known since childhood.
The Sex Films, the Weissers point out that while Kumashiro's The Woman with Red Hair (1979) is rightly praised as a masterpiece of softcore porn, Lovers Are Wet is not a lesser work, writing, "Both films are equally important in shaping Japan's lucrative pinku eiga market."
In his Behind the Pink Curtain: The Complete History of Japanese Sex Cinema, Jasper Sharp writes that, like Woods are Wet and The World of Geisha (both 1973), Lovers Are Wet is one of Kumashiro's indictments of the hypocrisy of censorship. As in these other films, Kumashiro uses the censors' tools purposely to ridicule the practice. In a scene in which a group of people play nude leapfrog on a beach, Kumashiro hides the actors' genitals by scratching the surface of the film, "creating a bizarre writhing spaghetti of lines." Film historian Donald Richie pointed out that the Japanese censors had used this method on nude audience members in the film Woodstock (1970). While these non-erotic nudes passed unnoticed in countries without such censorship, Richie notes of the Japanese version, "When the film was projected the distant strolling couples consequently seemed girdled with fireworks. Though this called instant attention to what the censors were presumably attempting to hide, the letter of the law had been observed and this result satisfies all censors everywhere."
