Japanese lesbian sex fantasy fighting film “Girl’s Blood” (Aka x Pinku) sees three hotties going at each otherWritten by: Taro on July 23, 2014 at 12:02 am | In Erotic Japan Blog | Discuss »
After having seen a Japan release back in February, people overseas are getting the chance now to see Girl’s Blood (released in Japan as Aka x Pinku, or Red vs. Pink) and it’s making waves.
Starring Yuria Haga and Asami Tada, the film is basically a softcore lesbian porn film. Tada and Haga in particular have excited legions of men for their explicit girl-on-girl scene.
Directed by Koichi Sakamoto (known for his contributions to the Kamen Rider series), it also stars the lovely Ayame Misaki.
It literally starts with Yuria Haga butt naked and then proceeds from there.
Another nude starlet in the film is Rina Koike, who also engages in a little nude lesbian fighting.
Here is how the film is billed:
Four girls take part in illegal underground fighting event Girl’s Blood held at an abandoned school building in Roppongi every night. The girls have their own stories and quirks from their private lives. Satsuki (Yuria Haga) suffers from a gender identity disorder, Chinatsu (Asami Tada) ran away from an abusive husband, Miko (Ayame Misaki) is a S&M queen and Mayu (Rina Koike) has a Lolita face.
The now infamous sex scene between Tada and Haga sees the pointy-breasted latter go down on her big-busted companion, licking her out. Unusually for a Japanese (relatively) mainstream film, it features full-frontal nudity. In reality, the lesbian seduction is just a masturbation fancy of the Haga character, who is writhing on her bed at home while fingering herself… until she gets disturbed!
As part of the release of Girl’s Blood (Aka x Pinku) there was also a cosplay photo book release with Ayama, Yuria and Asami in full sexy gear.
The lovely F-cup Asami Tada has done nude scenes before.
Will this finally take the crown for AKB48 Fan of the Century?
As reported by our friends at JapanTrends.com, one admirer of Yuki Kashiwagi has succeeded in making a working android of her, the Yukirin Robot.
AKB48 fans aren’t known for their subtlety or restraint. From purchasing up crazy amounts of CDs and merchandise to attacking the objects of their desire at handshaking events, AKB48 is a group that inspires all manner of extreme response from its fans.
But this is something we haven’t personally seen before, though it is at least technically impressive.
It lacks arms but has a moving head and eyes, and can sense when you are looking at it and look back at you.
The Dr Frankenstein here is Takayuki Todo, a post-grade media art student who made the android for his graduation project. First shown earlier this year, it was exhibited at Niconico Chokaigi 3, a tech event at Suzaka City in Nagano Prefecture on the weekend.
With its tongue firmly in its cheek, the android was advertised as being at a booth not for the usual “handshaking” as the AKB girls do but for “staring”.
Not so much the uncanny valley as the otaku valley, with a few alterations the Yukirin Robot could become an awesome sex machine-cum-sex doll that we think would be worth a LOT of money!
And for comparison’s sake, here is the “real” Yuki Kashiwagi in all her glory…
What to do about Japan? Its population is aging and its birth rate is falling. That’s the double whammy and not a week goes by without some new farfetched plan being proposed by some idiotic politico.
Well, this one might just be the most outlandish one we’ve heard so far and the latest in a long, long line of gaffes by Japanese male politicians.
A member of the Shinshiro Municipal Assembly in Aichi Prefecture last month suggested a way to increase the Shinshiro City population. While nove, it is probably illegal and also just plain outright crazy.
Give out “punctured condoms” to married residents. Yes, distribute knowingly damaged contraception to “trick” couples into getting pregnant.
Needless to say this was met with criticism and last week independent Assemblyman Tomonaga Osada was told by the assembly’s Chairman that his comments “lacked dignity for an assembly member and consideration.” Osada then suffered the indignity of having his proposal not only rejected but actually deleted from the minutes of the June 18th meeting in which he made it!
Is that punishment or censorship? We’re not sure.
According to media reports, Osada is 49 years old and now into his third term as an Assemblyman at Shinshiro. The small city in Aichi has a population of 49,000.
Of course, the whole reprimand only happened in the first place because the public got wind and there was a bit of a brouhaha. Last week a Japanese Communist Party assembly member wrote about it in his blog on Monday and it soon went viral.
Osada said his motives were faultless. He just wanted the people of Shinshiro to “feel friendly toward City Hall.” His only hope was that the birth rate would be boosted but he apparently now accepts that puncturing condoms would be an “inappropriate” idea.
Japan’s current cause célèbre has ended in a victory for art, personal liberty and eroticism with the release of self-proclaimed “vagina” artist vagina artist Rokudenashi-ko/Megumi Igarashi from police custody. She was arrested earlier this week for using Campfire to raise funds for a project involving making a 3D printing of her own genitals.
“I have always stuck to my artistic principles,” she said. She wants to to revolutionize Japanese society’s taboos on depicting and talking about female genitals. Now she’s famous for getting arrested, perhaps she has a better chance!
It is true that sex and nudity is EVERYWHERE in Japan, but NOWHERE. Since the rice of celebrity “hair nude” photo books over two decades ago some attitudes started to change and a few mainstream films escaped the censor if the full-frontal nudity was for comedic purposes.
However, even photographers as prominent as Leslie Kee have been arrested for daring to show full nudity in art exhibits. If you are gay or female, you face repression, it seems!
While the pixellation censorship is one aesthetic issue, the complete burying of the question of genitalia is another — as it is also links into some entrenched problems as the suppression of women in Japan.
Rokudenashi-ko/Megumi Igarashi is obviously a clever person, not another case of “wacky Japan” like some in the western media would like to patronize her as while they giggle at Japanese people. Though we also chuckled at the sheer outlandishness of her art projects at first, we applaud her stand and how she seizes on her new-found platform to bring about change.
Her artist name means “good-for-nothing-girl” and though she would seem to be a bit infantile in her obsession with “manko (pussy) art”, in fact she is bringing important issues into the public realm through her various sculptures, workshops, exhibitions, books, and stunts such as paddling in a “vagina kayak”!
After being detained on July 12th for online distribution of 3D data of her vagina, she was released on Friday night. She had emailed fans who funded her art project via Campfire with data of her vagina so they could make 3D prints of it.
“I believe this arrest was completely unjust and unreasonable,” said Igarashi.
The 42-year-old’s plight was met by consternation by feminists, art lovers and those who just like a countercultural cause. Ten police officers were sent to arrest her. Ten? What did they think, she was going to attack them with her vagina?!
The Tokyo District Court on Friday annulled her arrest and she was liberated… or at least, only so far as Japanese society is liberated in the first place!
Her cause attracted over 17,000 signatories in two days to an online petition to get her released.
“I have often wondered why Japanese TV shows edit out” slang words for vagina “like it’s the normal thing to do,” she said. ”But this is (a part of) my body, and I don’t understand why it’s considered obscene.”
“I’m fighting against a society that for some reason brands female privates as taboo,” she said.
We have no source for this other than Imgur (over 1 million views at time of writing!) and The Huffington Post, so it could be bogus, but we couldn’t resisting re-blogging the exploits of this hapless “lonely Japanese guy” and his efforts to “construct” a girlfriend for himself.
While he could have gone down the now well-chronicled route of buying one of Japan’s many amazing sex dolls, which come in all shapes and sizes, instead he decided to use some more shoddy materials and create a girlfriend out of his… shower.
Yes, his shower.
How?! Here is the transformation process.
To start, our local Dr Frankenstein…
And his workshop…
She can even cook for him… or at least provide the water for his instant noodles.
Well, we think she looks more like a scarecrow than a sex doll.
Surely this is meant in jest but who is he? And where did he get the idea from? So many questions. But one thing is for sure, it isn’t doing the reputation of Japanese men overseas any good!
It’s probably uncontroversial to say that Japan is a culture in which more men use professional sex services than in many other countries. Japanese men have few qualms about using call girls and prostitutes. Japan is also a country with a vast porn industry.
All in all, this creates men less embarrassed by their liking for porn stars or pictures of naked, or semi-naked, women.
Some men even customize their own loafers so they can have such images on their feet!
Take this anonymous netizen who has apparently created these shoes. Can you tell what the pictures are?
They are supposed to be based on actual call girl flyers, you know the kind that occasionally arrive in your mail box in your condo.
Beat that, Jimmy Choo!
Most of the flyers look a bit retro now so we expect the source material isn’t so recent, but we’re still very curious to find out who did it, how, and whether they have actually worn these around town!
We’ve just heard of this new documentary which takes a look at one of our favorite places, the love hotel.
While we don’t like the preview’s slightly cheap pandering to exoticism and stereotypes about Japan (“in a society where conformity is everything and public affection cannot be shown…” — really?) that just aren’t the whole truth, we shouldn’t judge it solely by the trailer.
The visuals are interesting, at any rate, promising some nice kinky scenes of S&M inside a love hotel room, by the looks of things. Check out the nurse asking her “patient” if his cock has a name.
It seems to suggest that love hotels are a dying breed fighting against the economic curve. “Can the love hotel survive?” it asks.
Directed by Philip Cox and Hikaru Toda, it is a UK/France/Japan co-production and has no full release date. Given that it is only just over an hour long, it likely won’t play to major movie theaters.
At present the film’s rather scant imdb.com entry states the synopsis as:
Pensioners, lawyers, married couples and teenagers are all customers at the Angel Love Hotel in Osaka Japan. With unprecedented access into one of the most private and anonymous spaces in Japanese society, this film follows the love hotel’s struggling manager and staff as the try to keep their hotel running, as well as revealing the intimate and private lives of the customers who visit.
Apparently the directors filmed it over two years and had success recruiting participants in Osaka, since the city has a reputation for being full of funny people who like to have a good time. By chance, when they were filming the government tightened up rules about love hotels and this ended up with the love hotel the makers focused on actually having to shut down at the end. Of course, these crackdowns are parallel the political sphere and also similar developments in the nightclub scene in Kansai.
Though the trailer boasts that the love hotel has existed for centuries, in fact scholars think that what we now regard as a physical space rented for sex can be traced to the relatively recent past of the early pre-war years. There were enshuku (“one-yen dwellings”) which were lodgings for couples to share the night, but they were commonly used for prostitutes to host clients.
They then blossomed in the post-war years as Japan’s population was young and growing, and was also starting to demand looser morals for all classes, not just those in power like the past. The enshuku developed into inns called tsurekomi (literally “bring in”). These soon exploded; there were apparently nearly 3,000 in Tokyo by the early 1960′s.
The word “love hotel” then came later in the 1970′s after the middle class had evolved more and so the love hotels too grew from being inns to something more flashy, western, and ambitious… and sometimes this had some bizarre interpretations.
The first to appear under the name “love hotel” was the Meguro Emperor, which opened in 1973 in Meguro in Tokyo. After closing down in the late 1980′s, it reopened in 2007 as a classy establishment and still exists today. On top of being more western inside, it attracted attention for its quasi-European castle design. It was a huge hit and the idea caught on.
Although almost every time foreigners write about or make a film about love hotels, they focus on the outlandish hotels. In fact, the vast majority of love hotels, for reasons economic and changing fashions and tastes, are today essentially standard hotel rooms, if quite large for a Japanese hotel and with good bathing facilities for couples. If anything, the amenities are the important feature for most. Of course, the exterior of the hotels are always garish and conspicuous, but even then the majority are still fairly ordinary except for the bright lights.
Self-proclaimed “vagina artist” Rokudenashi-ko arrested by police for making 3D printing of her genitalsWritten by: Tadashi Anahori on July 15, 2014 at 12:15 am | In Erotic Japan Blog | Discuss (2) »
Artist and manga-ka Megumi Igarashi is not afraid to shock, in spite of her innocent smiles. After all, this is a young woman whose artist name is Rokudenashi-ko (Good-for-nothing girl) and who calls herself a “deko-man” (decorated pussy) artist, a “pussy columnist” and who is a member of the “Japan Genitalia Art Association”.
She held a solo show in May in Shinjuku that was a quite a talking point online, not least for its colorful pictures of vaginas with faces. She also claims to have made the world’s first 3D “pussy boat”.
And this is where the trouble starts.
As first covered by Tokyo Reporter, the 42-year-old artist used Campfire (a local version of Indie Go-Go) collected lots of money to enable her fund her outlandish projects. In the end she raised double her funding target of ¥500,000 ($5,000).
Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Monday announced the arrest of a 42-year-old woman for selling data that allows for the creation of a model of her genitals, reports the Sankei Shimbun (July 14).
On March 20, self-proclaimed artist Megumi Igarashi (@6d745), a resident of Setagaya Ward, allegedly sent a link containing image data that can be read by a 3D printer to a 30-year-old male company employee in Kagawa Prefecture.
The suspect, who was charged the distribution of obscene material electronically, has reportedly denied the allegations. “I do not acknowledge that (the work) is an obscenity,” she told police.
The case is the first of its kind in Japan.
Which doesn’t surprise us at all!
Her crime was officially one of online distribution of obscene images. She was just too prolific in her output! After all, Igarashi/Rokudenashi-ko has also published books, hosts workshops and more.
Her English profile has this to say:
As an artist, I focus on my own vagina as the motif for my art.
My work is against discriminative/ignorant treatment of the vagina
My artwork is shown on this blog.
My vagina was scanned by a 3D printer and was expanded to 2-meters size as the kayak which is titled “まんぼーと (The Vagina Boat).”
I was able to row in a boat modeled after my own vagina.
I make art pieces with my vagina, which I would rather call Manko(MK).
I thought it was just funny to decorate my vagina and make into a diorama,
but I was very surprised to see how upset people get when they see my works or even hear me say the word Manko.
Even when a TV station asked me to be on their show, they wouldn’t dare let me say DECO-MAN because “MAN” is from the taboo word “Manko”.
Why did I start making these kind of art pieces?
It’s because I had never seen the vagina of others and I was too self-conscious of mine.
I did not know what a vagina should look like at the same time, so I thought mine was abnormal. Manko and vagina, have been such a taboo in Japanese society.
Penis, on the other hand, has been used in illustrations and has become a part of pop culture. But vagina has never been so cute.
Vagina has been thought to be obscene because its been overly hidden; although it is just a part of a woman’s body.
I wanted to make vagina more casual and pop. That’s how I came to make a vagina lampshade, a remote-controlled vagina car, vagina accessories, a vagina smartphone case, and so on.
Now that’s what we call avant-garde.
Here is Rokudenashi-ko in her floating vagina mold (aka pussy boat).
While Rokudenashi-ko previously attracted the attention of The Huffington Post, perhaps now she will want to keep a low profile? Or perhaps she will attract Ai Wei Wei levels of support from the public?
Oh, ever wanted to know what Gundam looks like with a pussy? Now’s your chance.
SDN48 was the short-lived “sexy” version of AKB48. Although the smaller sister group had its fans, it ultimately only lasted three years perhaps because, with so many regular Gravure idols out there, it didn’t seem to have a point.
The popularity of AKB48 et al with a certain demographic rests on how they are “innocently” sexy and not so overt, making SDN48 just seem like a cheap Gravure group.
SDN48′s members have gone on to have varied careers but their initial entry into a more overtly sexy idol group at least prepared some for future naked photo shoots. Machiko Tezuka, for example, had no qualms about showing us everything she has!
Now Serina (芹那), probably SDN48 most popular girl, has joined her ranks in going nude. Well, almost.
Already known for her bust-hiding shoots and slinky form, now Serina has now gone a step further, revealing a lot more flesh… including a very cute butt. Not far off 30, Serina is perhaps getting desperate to squeeze out as much from her idol career as she can before the cruel entertainment world casts her aside. (On another note, we are curious as to why certain idols are only known by a single name.)
We know this is going to be a divisive release — and that’s why we’re blogging about it.
“Rina-chan Best” is a long 480-minute double-disk DVD porn set for the audiences who love eight-hour paipan schoolgirl fantasies. And that’s quite a big audience in Japan, it seems.
Rina is a sweet little girl who measures a mere 147cm (4.8 ft) in height. Like small girls with flat chests? She’s the one for you. (After all, there’s no shortage of them in Japan.)
In the series of films in this set Rina is put to the test with many men, sometimes many men at once, as she is manipulated, seduced and controlled.
Of course, we should point out right away that the actress isn’t really underage (otherwise it wouldn’t be getting a mainstream release) and there’s a lot of role-play and parody here (two hallmarks of Japanese porn), from the shojo manga-style cover to all the outlandish situations that Rina finds herself in.
What is the appeal of this kind of film? Is it sadistic? Or a fantasy of being the lucky first guy to have his way with an innocent virgin? As with a lot of stuff in Japan, it’s an ambiguous mix of many factors and defies a simple response.
While we’d be lying if we said that the sex in the film was the usual stuff that turns us off, it wasn’t just curiosity that kept us watching either.
Though definitely not for everyone, even it’s if not to your personal taste in porn “Rina-chan Best” is one of those (many!) JAV films you have to see… to believe!
