Yoshiro is a loser. The only light in his life is the beautiful Sae, even though she doesn’t know he exists. One day, the boy discovers he has psychic powers like many other women with something in common: they’re all virgins!
The idea of finding your one true love at the prenatal stage lends The Virgin Psychics a romantic, even conservative streak that increasingly reveals itself as Sono’s secret weapon. The talk may be dirty, but actual onscreen sex acts, let alone nudity, are few and far between, and the movie’s prurience begins to feel, remarkably, like a kind of innocence. Japanese schoolgirl fetishism, perspiring cleavage, levitating sex toys and slap-you-in-the-face erection gags: The Virgin Psychics has an unapologetically dirty mind, except on those occasions when it seems to have no mind at all.
