What Happens In A Tokyo S&M Love Hotel (NSFW)

There’s a clear fascination for many people about what goes on inside Japanese love hotels, and Canadian photographer Nathalie Daoust has taken a bite off the forbidden fruit with her recent Tokyo Hotel story. It’s nearly impossible for a non-Japanese person to partake in the darkly erotic pleasures of Tokyo’s red light district, but Daoust has managed to cross those boundaries to show us the love hotels’ most intimate secrets, as well as the beautiful, yet foreboding women who work by the hour.

Have a look at the series below, which she photographs with film and hand prints. The images reveal Daoust’s “passion for intimacy, [where she] has devoted all of her art to unveiling the secrets hidden beneath the apparent stability of life.”
