In 1969 Yokoo did a series of illustrations for the brazenly erotic and lustful magazine Demented. The following year, to advertise a one-man show of his work he chose three of his favorite images from the magazine, including this one. The images are all erotic by nature and reflect the "pornographic fever" that was beginning to spread around Japan at the time. Yokoo p. 95 no. 806.
