This made journal of high demands as the historians and scholars learning the Japanese culture will go for it (Victoria, 6).
According to the journal, young people were excluded from sexual activities and hence knew a little of shunga’s. This therefore shows a society with moral standards of a higher order. Violence also existed in between those who up hold the morals of the society and those who breach them (Victoria, 4). This tries to imply that no society is perfect; at least there must be the few who goes against the morals. There existed relationship between shunga and the erotic manga as well as anime, but there were no discussions on it.
In conclusion, the journal;” shunga: sex and pleasure in Japanese art” achievements scale have met the modest complaints. It is also motivated as the demonstration of the British gallery.
