Sada Abe is a japanese murderess known for carrying her lover’s severed penis with her in a handbag. Out of love.
Beginning in the 1922, a teenage Sada worked as a geisha. But since many geishas apprentice starting in childhood, Sada was stuck in a low level. She tried working in the legalized sex industry for a while, but ended up working in an illegal operation. In 1935 she decided to leave sex work and start a small restaurant. She began apprenticing for 40-year-old Kichizo Ishida who owned a successful restaurant known for its eel dishes. The two were rumored to have began their affair in his restaurant while a geisha sang for them.
They then had a massive rendezvous. For two weeks they went from tea house to tea house (tea houses are sort of like sex hotels) lazing in bed, drinking sake and making love, which they would allegedly do in front of singing geishas and maids.
