Makura-e Private pillow of Utagawa Kunisada. Beauties on Japanese woodblocks pillow prints
In the Edo period, sex was something natural for human pleasure and reproduction.
In the Meiji period, the importation and incorporation of Western values meant that the images were not as explicit as the makura-e or the non-explicit scenes of the pillow, but women lying on a pillow after making love.
