"The Hell of Great Heat"[1] or "Cunt Hell of Great Searing Heat" (1785?), subtitled in English as 'The Libertine Devoured by the Phantoms of the Women He Seduced' by Japanese artist Kunisada or Toyokuni presents an example of anthropomorphized genitalia. The most common subcategory of this genre is the "Every Hole to Tell the Truth," which is usually about "talking private parts betray unchastity". But this print does not belong to either of those categories. No, there's no talking here. All action, here the female genitalia actually devour one of their former lovers. Additionally this plate is an illustration to vagina dentata.

Its Japanese title is "Daicho netsu Kaijijoke" or "Dai jónetsu bobo jigoku" (citation needed).
