Dream of the Fisherman's Wife c. 1820 - Hokusai
Tentacle rape is a concept found in some erotic horror hentai titles, where various tentacled monsters violently rape or otherwise impale young women (or, less commonly, men). The most well-known title in the "genre" is the 1987 title Urotsukidoji.
The genre supposedly exists because of Japanese censorship regulations which prohibit the depiction of the penis but apparently do not prohibit showing sexual penetration by a tentacle or similar (often robotic) appendage.
Tentacled creatures have appeared in Japanese erotica long before animated pornography appeared; among the most famous of the early instances (and perhaps the first) is a Hokusai woodcut called The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife, depicting a woman entwined and sexually molested by a pair of octopuses.
One early appearance of tentacle rape was in the computer game Maniac Mansion, which was released in 1987. It was possible to kill a character by making him/her play tentacle mating call to Green Tentacle. Green Tentacle then started approaching the character - and the next picture showed his/her tombstone. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tentacle_rape [Aug 2004]

The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover (1989) - Peter Greenaway [Amazon.com]
This is probably Peter Greenaway's most accessible film. It's a controversial film and has a NC-17 rating in the US. It's a tale of sex, lust, food, gluttony, murder and revenge. The film opens with a vulgar scatological scene, when a man is smeared with excrement by 'The Thief', Albert Spica. Most of the film is set in an elegant gourmet restaurent called Le Hollandais. Spica dines at this restaurant frequently, along with his gorgeous wife Georgina (played by solemnly sexy Helen Mirren) and his group of coarse associates. -- Wayney via Amazon.com
Few directors polarize audiences like Peter Greenaway, a filmmaker as influenced by Jacobean revenge tragedy and 17th century painting as by the French New Wave. The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover is both adored and detested for its combination of sumptuous beauty and revolting decadence. A vile, gluttonous thief (Michael Gambon, The Singing Detective) spews hate and abuse at a restaurant run by a stoic French cook (Richard Bohringer, Diva), but under the thief's nose his wife (the ever-sensuous Helen Mirren, Prime Suspect) conducts an affair with a bookish lover (Alan Howard, Strapless). Clothing (by avant-garde designer Jean-Paul Gaultier) changes color as the characters move from room to room. Nudity, torture, rotting meat, and Tim Roth (Reservoir Dogs) at his sleaziest all contribute the atmosphere of decay and excess. Not for everyone, but for some, essential. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com
