Izumi Shima

Izumi Shima is a Japanese mainstream film actress, best known for her roles in Nikkatsu's Roman Porno film series. Shima was born Keiko Ishida in the Shinjuku district of Tokyo, Japan on December 3, 1953. Ishida made her acting debut by 1975, using the alias Keiko Ono, in the TV series Taiyō ni Hoero!, but this alias was soon changed to avoid confusion with another actress. Ishida used the aliases Emi Shirakawa and Nozomi Shirakawa during this period. In 1977, Ishida came under exclusive contract with Nikkatsu studio and was given the stage name "Izumi Shima", she made her debut with the studio in the August 1977 Roman Porno film Lady Chatterley In Tokyo. Nikkatsu promoted Shima for this film as their "most beautiful actress" and the cinematography in the film was designed to highlight her attractiveness. However, due to the disappointing reception of Lady Chatterley In Tokyo, Shima was relegated to low profile and supporting roles for years. According to noted SM-author Oniroku Dan, her sexual partner, she failed to overcome her timid and restrained mood for roles that required physical intimacy, which contrasted with her passionate off-screen sex life.

During this time, Shima appeared in a number of S&M works including the 1980 Blazing Bondage Lady and the 1982 Female Beautician Rope Discipline both written by Oniroku Dan. When Oniroku Dan unhappy with the fate of his scripts, decided to produce his own film, Dark Hair, Velvet Soul in 1982, he brought in respected pink film director Mamoru Watanabe to direct the film and he chose Shima for the starring role. According to the Weissers, Shima brought "elegance and panache" to her role and after this successful appearance, she made S&M films her specialty and became regarded as one of Nikkatsu's leading S&M actresses of the 1980s. Nikkatsu's "SM Queen" in the period 1982 - 1983, Shima was cast as the staple dominatrix type in her films.

Laelia (gens)

The gens Laelia was a plebeian family at Rome. The first of the gens to obtain the consulship was Gaius Laelius in 190 BC; the only family name of the Laelii was a common cognomen, referring to one who stammers. A few of the Laelii used personal surnames, such as Sapiens, by which the Laelius, a friend of the younger Scipio Africanus was sometimes known; this list includes abbreviated praenomina. For an explanation of this practice, see filiation. Gaius Laelius, grandfather of the consul of 190 BC. Gaius Laelius C. f. father of the consul. Gaius Laelius C. f. C. n. consul in 190 BC, was a friend of the elder Scipio Africanus, to whom he acted as legate throughout the Second Punic War. After his consulship, he helped colonize the territory of the Boii, he was appointed to several other commissions and embassies through 170. Gaius Laelius C. f. C. n. Sapiens, consul in BC 140, a close friend of the younger Scipio Africanus, he favoured agrarian reform, but after meeting resistance abandoned the effort, opposed the efforts of the Gracchi, leading his aristocratic contemporaries to call him Sapiens, "the wise".

He was erudite and a less persuasive speaker than some of his contemporaries. Laelia C. f. C. n. Major, married Quintus Mucius Scaevola, the augur. Laelia was renowned for her graceful and eloquent speech and sincere, upon which Cicero remarked, which she passed down to her daughters, as well as her son-in-law, the orator Lucius Licinius Crassus. Laelia C. f. C. n. Minor, married Gaius Fannius Strabo. Decimus Laelius, one of Pompeius' lieutenants during the Sertorian War, slain in battle against Lucius Hirtuleius near the town of Lauro in 76 BC. Decimus Laelius D. f. impeached Lucius Valerius Flaccus for repetundae in his administration of Asia, BC 59. During the Civil War, Laelius was a loyal emissary in the Pompeian forces.

Balbus, a delator during the reign of Tiberius, accused Acutia the wife of Publius Vitellius, of majestas.
