I mention this in my book though - o-iroku just literally means "sexy" films, it wasnt a genre. Daisuke Asakura from Kokuei said their films in the 60s were also described as o-iroke.I also read that Toei used the term  "Poruno Rosen" - i.e., a Porno Line, a brand name describing the films of Teruo Ishii, Norifumi Suzuki et al., so this I guess would have been dreamt up by their marketing department about the time of Nikkatsu Roman Porno.

In a lengthy interview with the Japanese magazine Hotwax (issue 2, June 2005), Kaji Meiko mentions that the term used for these kinds of films at Toei at the time was "o-iroke".TomMidnight Eyehttp://www.midnighteye.com> Date: Fri, 12 Dec 2008 23:42:21 +0900> From: nihoneiga1960 at gmail.com> To: KineJapan at lists.acs.ohio-state.edu> Subject: re: About the so-called 'pinky violence'> > Hi Martin,> > According to a presentation in June 2008 at Meijigakuin University on > "Pinky Violence" by Mana Yaeko (?????), the term did not > originate from Toei in the 70s but was a creation of 90s subculture > focused on 70s cinema, specifically works from the Toei lot.
