While most marriages at the time were arranged -- and between a man and a woman -- sex between two men was not at all uncommon, though often kept out of public view. For the most part, such erotic encounters were allocated to three spheres: red-light style pleasure districts, kabuki theater, and shunga , or erotic art. However, a wildly rare shunga handscroll by artist Miyagawa Choshun, which has been shielded from public view since the s, depicting man-on-man loving, has been recently rediscovered by Bonhams auction house. While most shunga prints frame the genitals front and center, nanshoku works focus more on the tender romance of the relationship. Think of them as the soft-core alternative to hardcore porn.
