Remember Hikaru Toda? She's the filmmaker who produced a documentary about love hotels we featured in 2014. Now the Osaka- and London-based Toda (who has lived abroad for over 20 years) and her production studio, Little Stranger Films, is working on a documentary, Of Love & Law, about Japan's first LGBT law firm. She has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise $30,000 to finish the project. This is a documentary for anyone that has ever found themselves challenging or being challenged by the status quo. Of Love & Law tells the hidden stories of people who ...

The immensely successful "Futomomo" girls' thighs fetish photography series is back. After its previous incarnations in Tokyo attracted over 20,000 visitors, "World of Thighs" returns to Todays Gallery Studio in Asakusabashi from December 16th to January 22nd (closed December 31st to January 4th). This time there is a "hot spring" (onsen) theme. (Springs are traditionally very erotic in Japan.) It's not hard to see why this exhibition has pulled in the punters. As always, all the photographs by Yuria feature Japanese girls' slender legs. ...

The Japanese porn industry is in trouble.  While we might spend much of our time on this blog singing its praises, the truth is this has been a bad year, full of accusations of coercion and trafficking of female performers. We always knew it went on, especially towards the bottom end of the industry. Needless to say, the links between organized crime in Japan and other sections of society, such as big business, politics and mainstream entertainment, are well documented, and the idol and porn scenes are similarly connected. These are social problems, though. What about financial ...

Last year we wrote breathlessly about Cyberjapan Dancers, Tokyo's hottest go-go dancers. We are very happy to report that the group has gone from strength to strength, continuing to make appearances in the media and accrue fame. And with bodies like theirs, it's not really very hard to see why these ladies are attracting attention. 2016 has been a bumper year for the roughly 25 girls who make up the Cyberjapan Dancers. They have been releasing DVDs, appearing in commercials, and performing at major nightclubs in Tokyo and elsewhere. They currently have well over 500,000 fans on ...

What a lucky guy. Yes, here's a little story to get your envy juices flowing at full speed. The actress Miki Nakatani has been spotted out on a date in Nishi-Azabu with a foreign man. The picture is now making the rounds of gossip and tabloid sites. Nakatani, who is apparently fluent in English (and speaks some French and Italian, to boot), is unmarried and regarded as one of the most desirable women of her generation. She was snapped walking with her arm around the body of an unknown gaijin, talking together in English, before they retired to her luxury condo in the area for the ...

How do you get people to have safe sex? Well, don't trust the guys to fulfil their end of the bargain, it seems. Instead, get the girls to insist on protection. And communicate to them using their favorite manga characters. That seems to be the logic behind the latest safe sex campaign in the sexually transmitted infection heaven that is Japan. Sailor Moon, the manga and anime series popular with girls and young women, has inspired its own series of contraception. The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has launched a campaign fronted by Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon heroines to ...

The latest nude selfie princess to make the rounds on the Japanese internet is this stunning college student whose penchant is nice lingerie and subtle masturbation. As if her perfect nipples and voluptuous thighs weren't enough, she is more than keen to play with some adult toys and mirrors to spice things up. She does have a habit of censoring her pussy with cute pictures of animals, but with curves and a back as good as this, we can forgive her. She seems to have practiced hard at how to slide a thong off in the best way. Perhaps she has a part-time job as a stripper? Well, she ...

Our new lust this month is the model Eriko Sato. Eriko has posed nude in a butt-revealing series of shots for a new photo book. First off, this is not the Eriko Sato we already know and love. She's now apparently given up her acting and modeling career for the joys of interracial marriage. This Eriko Sato (different kanji, by the way) is a 26-year-old race queen and gravure idol who released her first photo book in late October. "Shiriaitai" is all about her butt, and it's easy to see why they went for that theme. The other Eriko Sato never went this far, more's the ...

The latest Japanese girl on Twitter with a penchant for sharing her nude selfies has seduced social media with alluring images of her body veiled in a sexy, see-through baby doll black lingerie slip. This nymphomaniac Japanese college student then she produces her new toy: a pink vibrator with which she starts to buzz her you-know-what. Don't worry, she is generous enough to take off her lingerie and give us an obstructed view of her generous bust and curves, not to mention a close-up selfie of her nicely trimmed pussy. It all gets too much for her and she ends up soaking the floor ...

Do you love panties? Do you want to hold panties? If you answered yes to the two questions above, you may well want to have a go at playing Pan Pan, a new game demo spotted on Steam Greenlight. In it, you play someone who races around "punching" panties in an anime-like landscape. In the words of the makers, Pan Pan "is a fast-paced battle game. Fly as a panty in a daily life street and in-between buildings. Search for the enemy panties and kick their bad ass!" Check out the trailers below. Pan Pan is a fast-paced battle game. Dash, dodge, high-speed ...

Tenga continues to try new things. After wowing the world with its bestselling onacups series, Tenga Eggs, Flip Hole and a host of other male masturbatory aids, it then turned to sex toys for couples and several stylish vibrators for women. Heck, it's even tried its skilful hand at making designer condoms and a "sperm viewer". So should we be surprised by this new development? Well, maybe. Because it's not every adult brand that makes a drink. Okay, this isn't an ordinary beverage, natch. Tenga's latest product is a "sexual energy drink" in the style of the sports jelly ...

Former AKB48 idol Satomi Kaneko has joined the growing ranks of idols who have graduated onto "sexier" and more revealing careers. She has stopped short of doing actual porn yet her new gravure DVD (released on October 21st) is very explicit, full of close-up shots of her shaved you-know-what area. Netizens are eagerly parsing the images to see if you can see her pussy hair. (You can't, but it's a close thing.) The 26-year-old with the F-cup left her AKB career behind in 2007, since when she has turned to shedding her clothes to ...

A potential scandal threatens to engulf idol group NGT48, the Niigata spin-off of AKB48... or it may just blow over. This time it involves cute idol Maho Yamaguchi, the 21-year-old 1st generation-member of the group. During a live streaming session on the online platform Showroom on November 13th, she is accused of having sex with a boyfriend. This has been denied by her management, though even they admit that Yamaguchi's decision to lie down on a bed and speak to the camera was poor judgment and likely to give the wrong impression. In the video, which is now circulating ...

Just when you think Japanese AV cannot get any weirder. Just when you think they've come up with all the outlandish scenarios imaginable. Along comes another one to set your mind blazing at the crazy erotic possibilities. The folks behind this concept deserve some sort of award, because this is awesome. We all liked to play on jungle gyms when we were kids. But what about a vibrator jungle gym? As the name suggests, this is a jungle gym constructed entirely out of massager wand-style vibrators (called a denma in Japan) -- 250 of them, to be precise. That's a lot of ...

The photographer Sakiko Nomura has a new exhibition at Ba-Tsu Art Gallery in Harajuku showcasing the beauty of Japanese AV actors. During the 1990s, Sakiko Nomura trained with Nobuyoshi Araki, who knows a thing or two about erotic photography. As we know, male porn performers are in short supply in Japan and so deserve our admiration for doing what must be a tough job. Yeah, having sex with hundreds of hot women a month for money. We really sympathize. But seriously, the photography looks great. There's certainly a homoerotic overtone. And it gets even more fun when we consider ...

It's become something of an annual tradition: November 8th is Ii Oppai no Hi (Nice Breasts Day), at least according to the Japanese Twittersphere. Cue lots of lovely pictures of bust shared by gravure models and AV idols. Here is porn star Kirara Asuka. スーブーというエロ写メラマンに『はい朝日を感じて〜📸』『風が味方してるよ〜📸』とかまんまと乗せられて気付いたらノリノリで脱いでた。#いいおっぱいの日 pic.twitter.com/zmF83rVsJ7— ‍明日花キララ(きいたん) (@asukakiraran) November ...

Forget the PlayStation VR, you can get even better virtual reality girlfriend experiences from adult game makers like Illusion. Their VR Kanojo is a new Japanese eroge or dating game for Windows, Oculus Rift CV1 and HTC Vive, and it's currently making waves with netizens who have tried it. The game places you in a bedroom with a nubile Japanese schoolgirl, which immediately recalls the controversial 2014 Project Morpheus demo, Summer Lesson. That game was criticized as "creepy" and ended up being withdrawn from the Tokyo Game Show. Illusion has no such qualms, it seems. It's going on ...

Running until tomorrow (November 8th), if you're in Tokyo and like your kawaii-bondage fetish art, then you should definitely check out this collaborative exhibition by Trevor Brown and Nanano at span art gallery. Admission is free. Trevor Brown is a British artist based in Japan who explores various paraphilias and sexual subcultures in his work. His first exhibition in Japan was way back in 1995, so he's something of an established force on the fetish scene. He calls his style "baby art", which sounds like something illegal but actually is a "new artistic direction combining cute images ...

Japan's favorite It Girl, Kiko Mizuhara, has teamed up with photographer Nobuyoshi Araki again for a series of shibari rope bondage-inspired photos. Ostensibly the shoot is advertising the fall/winter 2016 collection of the fashion brand Supreme, but who cares about such details when Kiko is tied up and waiting for someone to whip her? Araki and Mizuhara previously (and memorably) partnered for a nude photo shoot for Shiseido back in 2013. There's also this promo behind-the-scenes video too, showing Kiko-chan roll over and reveal her panties. The aging Araki gets rather ...

When so many idols and models are releasing their own new photo book every month, how do you stand out? Well, the producers of the new Ai Okawa photo book came up with a novel marketing strategy that will certainly take some beating. It meant you could experience undressing the alluring fashion model with a "bra strap" attached to the reverse of her latest photo book. It allows the enthusiastic male reader to unclip the bra from Ai Okawa's naked back. And when your Ai Okawa fantasies run dry (as if), you can even use the bra wrapping to practice your girl-undressing ...

This year, in addition to crazy numbers of people in cosplay on the streets, Shibuya also hosted trash cans that spoke to you in porn stars' voices when you filled them up with your garbage. And that wasn't the only porn-themed attraction in Shibuya over the Halloween weekend. Regular viewers of Japanese AV will be familiar with the "magic mirror truck" series that features a vehicle installed with a one-way glass wall. It travels around the city, looking out at unsuspecting citizens on the streets while all manner of sexual antics take place inside. Porn industry giant Soft on ...

How to get girls to surround you? Simple. Wear a t-shirt saying you are a virgin and wander around the crazy street party that was Shibuya during the Halloween weekend. That's what this guy did. The sophomore University of Tokyo student, Ryosuke Takano, is a self-professed virgin but he still wanted to join in the fun for the holiday. He carried 120 handwritten cards around with his name, Twitter account and Line number, hoping to attract followers or groupies to his cause (presumably ending his virginity). The gimmick worked a treat: he was soon surrounded by hordes of cute ladies ...

Over the weekend, Halloween was even more of a crazy street party than last year. Though rain made Friday a wash-out, Saturday saw Shibuya transform into a veritable carnival of cosplay and costumes, almost all of which seemed to have nothing to do with Halloween in the traditional sense and more to do with looking wild or sexy. And there's nought wrong with that, my friends. All these thousands of people assembling in Shibuya for one night only does create one annoying byproduct, though: trash, and lots of it. To help deal with the problem, AV retailer and producer Soft on Demand (SOD) ...
