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 ...

We have a confession to make. Like a lot of young boys, we used to be a bit geeky. In particular, we loved models. It probably started with building models of F14s and the like, before progressing on to the more hardcore delights of collecting and painting whole armies in the sprawling Games Workshop universes. And then somehow, we went beyond it and started doing more "grownup" stuff. But we got a very large and very welcome burst of nostalgia when we spotted these two masturbator toys based on aircraft and battleship models. The Blue Frame Uminari Battleship Masturbator and Blue ...

Is Japan's naughty knotty BDSM scene too dangerous? This was the question asked recently by Jake Adelstein, the Tokyo-based reporter who has made a career out of being the foreign media's go-to guy for yakuza stories and gossip. Adelstein's article for the Daily Beast website is an interview with Golden-san, aka Golden Rule S.M. or Doctor Golden, who is calling for a "gentler, wiser, and kinder BDSM." Doctor Golden, who is an S&M practitioner and also a chiropractor, has been taking care of people, mainly women, injured in the pursuit of their pleasure for over two decades. Next ...

There are more than a few bars and hostess clubs where you can have your drinks poured for you by AV actresses. There is also a new bar in Kabukicho by Weekly Playboy, where patrons are served by famous gravure idols. But until now there hasn't been a bar directly operated by an AV production company. In March, that all changed when a well-known AV maker opened a small girls' bar in Kabukicho. For the uninitiated, a girls' bar is a kind of cheap hostess club, where there is a modest cover charge and the drinks are a bit more expensive than usual. Nikkan Spa recently paid a visit to ...

Earlier in the year we wrote about the upcoming porn debut of NMB48 idol Risako Okada. The 21-year-old did a full-frontal photo shoot to celebrate her AV release on the Muteki label under a new performer name, Miko Matsuda. Okada/Matsuda (aka Risapoyo) was a member of the Osaka-based AKB48 sister group from 2011 to 2012. She now joins a growing list of former AKB idols who have "graduated" on to porn careers. Now the first pictures have appeared from here adult video, "Number 01". While the set-up of the AV seems very straightforward indeed and hardly seems to have much of a budget ...

Every few months along comes another one: a sensationalist English-language news wire article about Japanese sex dolls that appears everywhere, eager for clicks and comments. This time it's an article with the very sensitively headline "Silicone Sally: Japanese men find true love with sex dolls". It comes courtesy of AFP, about physiotherapist Masayuki Ozaki turning to a silicone sex doll, Mayu, when romance in his marriage dried up. Lonely guy buys sex doll. Hardly news. Goodness knows how AFP found this story or if it's even true. We are naturally somewhat suspicious of someone who ...

Once again we have been trawling some of Japan's postwar history for insights about the sexual development of the nation. Here are some awesome vintage images of classic love hotels. Fans of love hotels and this blog will immediately spot that this one is the Meguro Emperor, a pioneering love hotel from the 1970s that has since re-opened. The other two are, apparently, the Ichinomiya London and Olympia hotels. It was around this time that love hotels started to become very elaborate, adding castle-style "battlements" and turrets. The results are bizarre, lurid and wacky, ...

This video by i-D features interviews with young people who identity as genderless. The makers say that this "hypnotic youth movement are [sic] rejecting ideas of fashion defining sexuality" and call it "Tokyo's most boundary-pushing scene". The interviews are with four people -- Yutaro, Muyua, Yoshiaki, and Satsuki Nakayama (pictured below) -- who all have quite large followings on social media. Genderless identity has particularly risen to the fore in the Japanese media recently with the popularity of the model and television personality Ryucheru. "When I first wore a skirt, my ...

Shocking. Fluorescent. Gaudy. Loud. Vular. Neon. Flashy. Tacky. There's a lot of epithets that can be applied to this new cosplay style that is like body art on psychedelic drugs, though none of them quite capture it. Inspired by strange characters from anime, cinema and video games, behold the new Japanese subculture of ishoku-hada. Certain sections of the Interweb are currently abuzz with breathless talk of this bizarre body painting and cosplay niche, which literally means "unique skin" or "unusual skin". Like an "alien" version of gyaru, ganguro or yamanba trends, women dress ...

We're suckers for combos. Put two things that we like together and we get a "double-like" feeling. And so it is with the lovely idol Erina Mano and Tenga. What more is there to say? We've once again trawled the archives a bit with this one, but a TV drama featuring Erina Mano also had her lying on a bed filled with Tenga onacups, which have seemingly been used. For good measure, she's also hugging a dutch wife (dakimakura, or hug pillow sex doll), though somewhat disturbingly it has a red mask on it (a traditional oni, or demon). Would that put you off? We're ...

These days, the delightfully curvy Mitsu Dan is pretty mainstream and often appears on regular TV shows and commercials. However, we still vividly remember the bad old days when she first burst on to the scene with some wild soft-core BDSM porn like Be My Slave (2012) that revealed pretty everything she had to offer except her pussy. And if she were so inclined to see that, she obliged with hair nude full frontals. Her more recent erotic shoots have been alluring yet not very graphic. Let's get nostalgic about the sexier version of Mitsu Dan for a few moments by revisiting a late-night ...

Another week, another idol photo book or major weekly magazine photo shoot. What's special this time? It's not the latest release from the ranks of AKB48 or Nogizaka46 trying to break out (though Mai Shiraishi did that very well recently with her bestselling photo book), nor the latest has-been model or actress stripping off fully nude in a last-ditch attempt to relaunch a dying career. Nor is it attracting controversy for its content per se like the Tomomi Kasai photo book where she was pictured naked with a young boy (Kodansha eventually canceled the release). Nothing like as a crazy ...

It's not a big subgenre but it's certainly alive and kicking, and waiting for you if you are so inclined: shotacon adult toys. Indeed, we doubt many regular readers of this blog are shocked to learn that shotacon (fetish about young boys -- well, let's say "young men" to stay legally acceptable, though it's a blurry line) is not just manifested in manga and anime. One of the more "notorious" of these was the Boy's Anus Otoko no Ko Smell Bottle, which is unique as its name suggests. Sadly, that wonder from Tama Toys is sadly sold out but now you can get the next best thing The Boy's ...

Love her or loathe her, one thing can't be denied about the tarento and model Rola: she has staying power. While many other minor celebrities and idols have come and gone, she has continued to dominate TV and advertising, despite only having one real shtick -- that of being a haafu and playing stupid. She has already survived one scandal when her foreign father was arrested for fraud a few years ago. Can she survive this one? (Spoiler: we think so.) She recently posted a video of herself to her popular Instagram account. Nothing unusual about that. Rola has a huge following on ...

Combing the archives, we found these leaked images of some slutty Japanese ladies taking a girls' trip out to the countryside that got very dirty, very quickly. It was clearly summer (and apparently 2011), given what they are wearing, but they weren't keen on keeping their clothes on for long. These girls were happy to strip off for some very provocative and playful poses in a remote corner of Japan. They show off their lovely butts and one girl even seems to take out her tampon from her pussy. Want to see some bush? Yes, two of the ladies are happy to ...

Remember the Virgin Killer Sweater? As we wrote before, this all-in-one, insanely revealing item of clothing shot to fame when it was modelled by Jun Amaki and quickly acquired the moniker of "virgin-killing" because it was so damned hot, a virgin would melt at the sight! But this is the first time we've seen the Virgin Killer Sweater in the wild, so to speak, though sadly it wasn't with our own eyes -- though perhaps that's for the best because we may not have been able to control ourselves. It was spotted worn by a bold young lady sitting on the platform of the Mita Line of the ...

What do AV actresses do on their days off? This is a question we often ponder. How many of the hot ladies wandering around Shinjuku and Shibuya are actually minor porn stars doing some shopping? We've searched the archives a bit and found this revealing gem, which offers a tantalizing hint about what some of the more adventurous ladies get up to. In April 2015, porn performer Sara Shinomiya spent her day off having her lovely body coated in cream and other sweet things -- all for her friends to slowly lick off. They also used some sort of sweet topping to write insults on her legs in ...

Have Japanese breasts reached a tipping point? That's what underwear brand Triumph is suggesting in its latest Lingerie White Paper, which indicates a continuing trend towards larger busts. Sales for its A-cup bras have fallen from 58.6% in 1980 to just 4.1% in 2016 The results for the last two years are tallied below: A-cup sales (2015): 4.7% A-cup sales (2016): 4.1% B-cup sales (2015): 19.5% B-cup sales (2016): 19% C-cup sales (2015): 26.1% C-cup sales (2016): 25.6% D-cup sales (2015): 24.8% D-cup sales (2016): 25% E-cup sales (2015): 16.7% E-cup sales (2016): ...
