The first Flower and Snake (花と蛇 Hana to hebi, 1974) is a Japanese roman porno S&M film produced by Nikkatsu and starring Naomi Tani. The film directed by Masaru Konuma. It was based on a novel by Oniroku Dan (born 1931), Japan’s best-known author of S&M fiction. Flower and Snake was the first of Nikkatsu’s Roman Porno films to deal with an S&M theme.
