Japanese condom makers love to do fun stuff like create fun concept products and do serious research into sexual habits. All this and also producing arguably the thinnest condoms known to man (we say arguably, because there are Chinese challengers). Well, we would now like to invite you to the Okamoto Condom Training Camp -- ostensibly presented by the titular condom maker responsible for a 0.01mm condom for the benefit of all condom users out there (not so many in Japan, it seems, given the high number of shotgun weddings). The bizarre promotional video purports to ...

We all loved stripped and exploring the bodies of Barbie dolls when we were young, but how about a doll that size or thereabouts that you can actually have sex with? Mini sex dolls -- sex dolls the size of Volks Dollfie dolls or even smaller -- have long enjoyed a cult reputation online. You can find all kinds of videos of people who have customized small dolls so that they can be penetrated. When the Dollho came along, it was like the answer to people's dreams. Not surprisingly, the doll set sold like crazy. There have been others, not least the fantastic Libidoll and a great series of ...

The Japanese actress Nae Yuuki has appeared naked in Showtime's revival of Twin Peaks, though don't get too turned on just yet. The scene is, as might expect from David Lynch, pretty strange. Nae Yuuki plays Naido, shown nude on a forest floor with her face and eyes sealed up. The character appears in two episodes (3 and 14). She has acted in a previous David Lynch project, appearing in Inland Empire in a small yet memorable role. Her other credits include Letters from Iwo Jima. Nae Yuuki is also 46 years old, putting her firmly in the jukujo range and among other ...

In addition to buying up all the CDs and merchandise they can get their hands on, otaku fans like to send their favorite idols various personal gifts, from handmade art to flowers and toys. Given that the line between fans and stalkers is quite thin sometimes, the idols and their management agencies need to take precautions. The meet-and-greet sessions, for example, at one time became notorious because fans were allegedly masturbating and leaving their spunk on their hands for idols to touch by accident. They called it the "semen handshake". Yes, nice to meet you indeed! Now Kaori ...

Another day, another fetish. This is Japan, where things never cease to inspire and surprise us. Yesterday it was amputee cyborg fantasies. A while ago it was zentai full-body tights. Or up-skirt photography. Or licking door knobs. Photography shows about thighs have proved a massive hit in recent years, so others are trying to jump on the band wagon with a new gimmick. This time it's soles. Yuki Yuzawa currently has an exhibition at Yellow House gallery until August 20th that focuses on the naked soles of tender-looking Japanese girls, from schoolgirls to office ladies, maids and ...

It's no secret how wildly popular the gravure model Miyako Akane is, so much so that she seems to be inspiring her own mini fetish sub-genres. She has a big following, not least because she rewards her fans with such things as making her porn debut (under the name Ema Yumekawa), wearing insanely sexy swimwear, and sparking a new street fashion trend for extreme body painting. In the past she has also posed nude and in a zentai body suit. But what if your obsession with the angelic-faced, big-chested model was more than just her body? What if you wanted her to be, well, missing ...

Now that's what we call a retirement. When Rin Sakuragi announced she was leaving her career in adult video at the age of 28, she (and her managers) decided to do so with a bang. In the time since we've seen not one but three sex toys dedicated to the goddess. Fans can sample the Rin Sakuragi AV Retirement Special Clone Onahole, a regular masturbator toy from Nippori Gift based on AV idol's pussy. Then there's the Geki-fera Vacuum Rin Sakuragi Blowjob Onahole, an awesome entry in the bestselling series of oral sex masturbator toys. And if that's still not enough, ...

Japanese gravure idols are mostly famous for one thing: their busts. Sure, not all of them have giant breasts but the proportion of busty models is pretty high. There are all kinds of things you can do with such breasts, from groping them to raise money for charity to keeping various objects balanced on them. If you want a way to accurately check and compare gravure idols' various chest sizes, we recommend the Oppai Zukan, or Full-Sized Gravure Idol Breasts Reference Book. This hefty book features such gravure idols as Nanoka, Eimi Matsushima, Saki Funaoka, Nonoko, Sayaka Onuki, ...

It didn't take long for virtual reality to discover a potentially lucrative niche: Japanese panchira fetish. This penchant for up-skirt views is a big thing in Japan, unfolding in AV, video games, books, photography, umbrella, and, of course, real-life crimes and incidents. Trains and escalators are particularly notorious places for panchira fetishists to linger. One of the most bizarre was the case of the man who lay in a Kobe storm drain for hours, looking up under the skirts of girls who walked by. This was something of an addiction -- he was a serial offender! Well, now you can ...

What is it about (certain) Japanese guys that seemingly makes them want to dress up as girls at any opportunity? The music video for Gen Hoshino's latest single, Family Song, casts "him" in drag while only the other day we blogged about the deceptively feminine charms of one male high schooler? Okay, Kabuki, lack of Victorian-era binaries, yada yada. Let's not try to come up with an anthropological mumbo jumbo answer for this. But it begs the question: are we witnessing an exciting surge in agender identity in Japan? From clothes to toilets, genderlessness is definitely growing in ...

Kazuhito Kosaka, aka Daimaou Kosaka, aka Piko Taro, the comedian best known for his viral hit "Pen Pineapple Apple Pen", has married his secret long-time girlfriend. And the lucky lady is none other than... gravure idol Hitomi Yasueda! This is not a joke. The busty model (and former race queen) with a delightful butt has been dating Kosaka for four years, after they appeared together on a TV show in May 2013 and long before he hit the big time as his Piko Taro character. They got married on August 3rd. To be honest, when we read this news we assumed it was a very mistimed ...

Japanese nunsploitation exists -- and it's out there waiting for you on YouTube. Ayami Takei is an aspiring YouTuber who had attracted viral attention with a video certain to be taken down by YouTube in the very near future. In it, Takei starts off in a nun costume and then shows off her newly shaven head (unlike certain idols, not done as a sign of penitence). Only she hasn't stopped there: she has also completely shaved her pussy and proudly displays her paipan to the camera. Her video, titled "Flesh and Blood," has already racked up tens of thousands of views, and there are other ...

We recently read a report in the Asahi Shimbun about the adult video scouts who operate on the streets of Tokyo, searching for the next porn talent to come walking by. If you've ever wondered how a lot of the women, especially the anonymous stars of AV with large casts, get into their jobs, it's often because they are aggressively scouted (many are also "persuaded" to move into porn from careers in modeling, gravure and hostessing). The result is an industry with an almost literally countless number of women working in it as performers at various levels. The article was an interview with a ...

So you've seen the mega hit anime Your Name.. Perhaps you've also seen it again in its recently released DVD form. Maybe you've even tried out the parody onahole toy. But have you seen the Your Name. parody adult video? Released in late June, Kimi no nawa. is the latest example of Japanese AV's penchant for parody. Previous eyebrow-raising examples of parody porn include Ultraman, wailing politician Ryutaro Nonomura, and comedienne It starts with the name. The 129-minute porn directed by Any Nakamura for Real Works cleverly uses a different kanji character for the "nawa" -- here ...

It's an open secret that Arashi idol group Jun Matsumoto is dating actress Mao Inoue, though their respective agencies prevent them from getting married. But that's not all. Matsumoto is also alleged to have had an affair for several years with someone else -- none other than porn star Tsukasa Aoi. The scandal was exposed by a tabloid at the end of last year after Aoi was spotted entering and leaving Matsumoto's apartment building. Matsumoto apparently treated Aoi as his "sex slave". Inoue also stopped working for a while, possibly related to the scandal. But Arashi is a ...

The Korean actress and model Sulli (aka Choi Jin-ri) was once a member of the idol music group f(x) from 2009 to 2015. The 23-year-old has also been venturing into acting of late. Her big breakthrough probably should have been the recent action noir film Real, though it wasn't such a hit. Released earlier this summer, the Lee Sa-rang film stars Kim Soo-hyun as a man operating in a strange underworld city. Shot with a stunning color palette, the film seems to have been somewhat derided by critics and audiences alike. We have only seen short clips from the film and what we saw of Sulli ...

As if the Flip Zero, Tenga's awesome update of the pioneering Flip Hole released last year, wasn't enough, the Apple of the Japanese adult industry has come up with a way to improve its bestselling toy. The Tenga Flip Zero Electronic Vibration, which is out in August, is a designer vibrating masturbation toy. Like with the original Flip Zero, there is an exterior pressure pad along the body to enhance the vacuum sensation. It also still splits open so you can really clean and then dry it out fully -- since Tenga knows how important good maintenance is for pleasure. What's special about ...

This cute Japanese high school girl has gone viral, but not for the reasons you might think. It's because "she" is not a "she" in the conventional sense of the term. Like Shiseido did before him, @ginsyamu has managed to fool a lot of people into thinking he is a member of the fairer sex. The 15-year-old young lad has amassed thousands of followers on social media with his uncanny ability to bend genders and strike convincingly feminine poses. Would this young lady have fooled you? It's not just the hair or makeup (including mascara, lipstick and eyeliner) but ...

For reasons that obviously don't need stating, the curvy Mitsu Dan has inspired her fair level of male attention these past few years. Now she's attracted the attention of Miyagi Prefecture, which hired her to appear in a tourism video. If that sounds pretty random, it's because it unashamedly is. The nude model and jukujo actress not afraid to shed her clothes on camera spends the 2:30-minute video clad in a kimono and talking very suggestively to a regional mascot and flying turtle. "Does it feel good?" "Can I ride you?" These are just a couple of the phrases the 36-year-old Dan ...

The Chichikan Nipple Penetration Breast Milk Fetish Set is when lactation and paizuri penetration fantasies overlap and go, well, a bit overboard. This is a set of the Chichikan Nipple Penetration Onahole, which is one of those unusual penetration toys we sometimes see (pee hole, navel, ear, etc). It literally allows you to experience penetrating a breast, which is certainly one step further than regular paizuri. It's made by A-one and has an awesome box design by erotic illustrator Ohigetan. But that's not all. The set also contains Kanojo Toys' exclusive ...

Here's a new toy that will certainly get young boys interested in games that don't involve a screen: the oppai spinner, as invented and demonstrated by the immensely busty and immensely popular gravure idol and singer Jun Amaki. Best known for making the "virgin killer sweater" famous, Jun Amaki has a chest that she knows how to use -- such as by creating a special version of Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen. The fidget spinner is the toy of the moment and has become very popular this year. It is also starting to grow in Japan, where is known rather intriguingly as the "hand spinner", so it ...

Our latest favorite nude selfie hobbyist is this Japanese college girl, who really wants the world to see everything she's got, including her paipan (shaved) pussy and tight butt hole. Despite spreading her pussy lips wide, she's a sensible girl and has censored her nude selfies for both genitals (illegal to upload in Japan) and her face (to preserve her identity). She certainly knows how to bend and stretch, though, as the way she raises and positions her legs shows. Imagine those pins wrapped around you as you explore what she wants to share. Her waist is quite slender, but her ...

Sweat. Sea. Sun. Sand. There's a world of scents out there on the beaches of Japan, not to mention very carefully waxed bikini lines (but more often than not, very flat chests). Summer beaches are the haven of slutty girls, who head in groups to the sand to meet guys and have fun. Dead or Alive Xtreme is a bestselling quasi-adult video game (ie, not quite a pornographic eroge) series where players lust over busty characters playing beach volleyball in very skimpy bikinis. And now the makers, Koei Tecmo, have taken a step into the burgeoning adult virtual reality market by integrating ...

Decades pass. Fashions and fads come and go. But one thing remains the same: strippers are hot. These ladies from the 1940s and 1950s certainly knew how to entertain male audiences back in the days of prewar Japan, including, no doubt, more than their fair share of American GIs. We can imagine Donald Richie watching and admiring them, perhaps with a whiskey or two in hand. In our more "enlightened" and morally "free" times, the girls from AKB48 keep their clothes on, pubic hair is pixellated, and pop stars aren't allowed to have boyfriends. And heaven help you if you're caught ...

We love gravure and AV idols, but not just the ones currently in fashion. We also like learning about the thousands of women working in gravure and AV do after their careers are over. Some go into prostitution or working as a hostess. Some become mainstream TV presenters or actors -- or even politicians. If they're lucky, some snag the right man and settle down to a quiet life of marriage and family. Some, though, fade into obscurity and poverty. The actress Hikari Mitsushima is an acclaimed and popular talent today but started her career as an teen idol. The porn star Nayuka Mine is ...
