We don't talk about boys' love or male-on-male themes enough on this blog, so we were pleased to stumble upon this development. The boys' love illustrator Ebimo has created a new 112-page gay drawing manual, the "BL Poses Stretch Book". It's a bit like a working version of the "48 Ways" (shijuuhatte), which is the de facto Japanese Kama Sutra, so you really get the most out of your relationship as well as illustration skills. The poses -- from tender kissing to hugging and all manner of sex positions -- are included as a guide to all the various ...

Another former AKB48 idol has made her porn debut, once again proving the thin pink line that exists between the industries. Joining numerous other ex-AKB girls who "graduated" onto to adult video careers, Ryo Sakata's first porn film was released in mid-March from the Maxing label. She has already released a second one this month. Clearly she and her paymasters want to milk her appeal, which is not hard to see. Here are some preview images from her first release. To be fair, the 27-year-old Ryo Sakata was only a member of AKB48 for around half a month in ...

We previously wrote about schoolgirl-themed VR Kanojo ("virtual reality girlfriend") as one of the most impressive and realistic examples of adult virtual reality to have emerged in Japan. We then got excited in January about VAQSO, a startup that was developing a virtual reality system that combined sight with smell. The headset pumps out a variety of scents in response to the game you play. The potential for adult games and experiences are obvious. Well, we are very happy to report that the two developments have joined forces. The VR Kanojo game can now be played with the VAQSO ...

You asked and the Shinto gods of eros delivered! Back in March, like many others we were dazzled by the sight of I-cup gravure idol Jun Amaki modeling what swiftly became known as the "virgin killer sweater". This revealing gray outfit is backless and is so skimpy that a virgin is likely to die on the spot after seeing a girl in it. Well, that might not be medically sound but the results are amazing. The Virgin Killer Sweater is a genuine product but the viral storm ignited by Jun Amaki soon made it unavailable to all but a few lucky early birds. The good news is that it is back ...

It's a dream for so many: a visit to Japan that concludes with some carnal fun with exotic local women, who are so delighted to meet you that they will do anything to please you. Well, it's the gaijin dream and it's experienced to certain degrees by many male foreign residents, especially those determined to try their luck with as many women as possible. But there are quite a few English teachers out there. It helps if you have a more glamorous occupation to attract the ladies. We sometimes joke that half the foreigners living in Japan are photographers and the other half are DJs, ...

Last month it was Miyako Akane. Earlier this month it was former Olympic snowboarder (and call girl) Mero Imai. This week it's Miu Nakamura. The adult video label Muteki is really on a roll if the latest rumor is true: retired idol Miu Nakamura is about to make her long-awaited porn debut, reports Tokyo Sports. She's a minor gravure idol probably most famous for her hair nude full-frontal photo shoots, which she first did in 2011. She started off as a junior idol when she was a teenager and ostensibly retired in 2012 after a 7-year career. Like Imai, she is alleged to have later worked ...

Newbie porn starlet Anri Sakaguchi has been arrested for attempted extortion. She apparently tried to extort money from a bar host with whom she was involved. She was arrested by Tokyo police on April 18th. The 26-year-old Sakaguchi was a celebrity (famous largely for being the daughter of actress Ryoko Sakaguchi) who made her debut on the Muteki label in autumn 2016. Professionally now known just as "Anri", she has since starred in another four titles. Her most recent one was released on DVD on April 13th. There were rumors that she joined the Muteki (and later Moodzy) roster ...

As we know all too well, there is a veritable mountain of adult toys out there based on Japanese porn stars. The best are the "clone" onaholes, especially masturbators produced with sophisticated 3D-scanning technology. We are pleased to share the news that the lovely Kana Yume has finally joined the ranks of AV idols who have been immortalized as sex toys. The Kana Yume Curvy Body Onahole is as good as it sounds. In addition to its realistic design and snug hole, the masturbator comes with a bonus DVD containing an image slideshow of original photos of Kana Yume. After all, you can ...

Marry your virtual girlfriend. Sounds tempting, right? That's the concept behind a promotional event for the new virtual romance game Niizuma Lovely x Cation ("niizuma" or "niidzuma" means "new wife"). In a development that is unlikely to reverse Japan's declining birth rate any time soon, the game makers Hibiki Works has announced a virtual reality wedding ceremony on June 30th in Tokyo. Male fans can actually become grooms, wearing VR headsets so they experience the bliss of "marrying" their favorite character. Formal dress is required, as befitting your special day, though ...

A naked video of gravure idol Yuriko Ishihara has leaked online. The POV hamedori-style footage shows the busty model nude, fingering herself, and being groped by a lucky guy. Who uploaded it is unknown, but it spells the end of her career. In some of the shots her face is partially covered by a surgical mask, though this is frequently removed. It is clearly her. The 34-minute video, ahem, climaxes in her jerking the guy off (for most of the time under a plastic sheet for some bizarre reason -- hygiene?). Strangely, the whole tryst seems to happen in a ...

"Teenage girls luring men into dens of sleaze warned by police." It sounds like a headline on a parody news website. The men are lured into dens of sleaze by teenage girls. Oh, so the men are the victims? But it's not. It's an article in the Asahi Shimbun and just the latest entry in a media frenzy about the JK business ("high-school girl business") as the police continue their crackdown on what is often a thin cover for underage prostitution. Twenty teenage girls suspected of working in the sleazy "JK business" were given a slap on the wrist by police in a series of street ...

It goes without saying that the likes of Peach John and Ravijour mean the joys of Japanese lingerie are never far from our mind. There is also more gimmicky lingerie that nonetheless lingers long in the memory: the feast series, which is designed especially for flat-chested women, and the Sailor Moon cosplay-style lingerie being cases in point. But while we try to spend as much time possible monitoring developments in Japanese lingerie, we don't think we've ever seen anything like this before: sexy lingerie inspired by the 12 signs of the zodiac. Izumi has created this new series of ...

As part of our work we get to see and try out a lot of adult toys on a daily basis, but these ones caught our eye as a cut above the rest. Adult toy maker KMP has produced a series of "3D-scanned" toys based on top Japanese porn stars such as Kurea Hasumi, Kizuna Sakura, Rika Hoshimi, and Ayaka Tomoda. We've certainly seen plenty of "clone" onaholes before, going back to masturbator sleeves in the 2000s such as the Meiki Maria Ozawa. But this seems to represent a new level in scientific realism. In the past, we think, some lucky technicians just took exact measurements of the AV idol's ...

The former Olympic snowboarder Mero Imai is to make her porn debut on the Muteki label, a studio that specializes in celebrities switching to the adult video industry. (Recent examples include Anri Sakaguchi, Miyako Akane, and Yua Mikami.) As we wrote back in 2015, Mero Imai is a former half-pipe Olympic competitor in 2006. However, her lack of success at the Winter games led to personal and family problems and she started working as a hostess in Osaka. As is sadly too common in the hostessing world, she then segued into a career as a delivery health call girl. She also had plastic ...

We've written before about the unashamed glory that is Cyberjapan dancers. Truly there is a god if humanity can produce group of go-go dancers like this. Sporting a semi-gyaru look with athletic bodies and seriously flexible curves, this group of dancers has been attracting more mainstream attention recently beyond nightclub culture. And their fame and fandom is certain to expand further as the individual dancers are now set to become customized dakimakura toys (hug pillows)! Normally a privilege reserved only for porn stars or 2D anime and manga characters, it is mark of how ...

As we know, attitudes towards safe sex and sex education are somewhat lacking in Japan. Condoms are merely for preventing pregnancies, that's presuming the guys even stop to worry about that. Judging by how many shotgun weddings there are even among famous celebrities, it seems that "do first, think later" is often the rule after a few drinks and a trip to a love hotel. What can you do to protect yourself? Well, condoms are a solution and a love hotel will always provide at least one for you. What about getting tested for STDs or STIs? After all, syphilis is on the rise and HIV ...

Haruna Kojima is about to turn 29 but is still a member of an idol group. That's either dedication or desperation, it seems. Only a very small number of former AKB48 idols have forged successful secondary careers. Most have vanished. Some have become porn stars. Perhaps conscious of this, Haruna Kojima has delayed her graduation for some time. It was first announced in 2016. But it seems it is finally happening this month, and this year has seen various graduation events to finalize her departure from the one-time supergroup. And so it is no surprise that she has celebrated her 12 years ...

The annual Kanamara Penis Festival is one of the most famous and popular in Japan and seems to be attended by as many foreigners as Japanese. While you probably won't find it promoted in any of the official government tourist information, sightseers to take snaps of the phallic objects of worship as well as sample the penis-shaped sweets. Cool Japan indeed. Held every April in Kawasaki City, one of the highlights of the festival is a large pink phallic float apparently called Elizabeth. Last year this was only on a four-wheeled trolley and visitors were disappointed by its lack of ...

This week's goddess of Twitter with a penchant for posting nude pictures of herself is this beauty, a 20-year-old college student. We particularly like it when she uses the cute animal whisker filter. However, she certainly isn't shy about showing her face as well as her awesome body. She may regret it in a few years' time when her naked images are everywhere and she is trying to get a job, but for now we applaud her youthful confidence. She focuses a lot of attention on her bust and rightly so. It is probably close to perfect: not too heavy (perhaps unlike the G-cup teenager from last ...

After the media controversy comes the government crackdown. The biggest story in the adult industry last year was when the widespread coercion in the porn industry was finally exposed after several famous performers came forward, in addition to multiple arrests and prosecutions. It led to an official apology from the industry, though can we really hope that things will really improve when the industry is so large and its needs so rampant? (After all, such coercion is also endemic for gravure idols, music idols and the general entertainment world.) Kyodo now reports that the ...

We've been following the "World of Thighs" series of photography exhibitions by Yuria ever since it started in 2015 and just got bigger and bigger with each new iteration. Focused just on the glorious wonder of slender Japanese girls' thighs and legs, previous versions of the smash-hit show (known as "Futomomo-ten" in Japanese) include a hot spring theme. As we once noted, this is basically zettai ryouiki (forbidden zone) fetish with some artistic trappings. One version of the show in Golden Week 2016 was attended by some 16,000 people. There is now a new ...

Marriage Is a Crazy Thing is a 2002 Korean comedy film about a college professor's relationship with a girl, played by the lovely Uhm Jung-hwa (sometimes romanized as Jeong-hwa Eom). Uhm Jung-hwa is a singer, actress and lingerie designer. Born in 1969, she is now in her forties but still looks mighty fine judging by some recent photos we found online. Marriage Is a Crazy Thing has several nice sex scenes with nudity. It's not wild stuff compared to some of the films coming out of South Korea in the past couple of years, but the realism of the domestic setting has its appeal -- ...

The legendary erotic photographer Kishin Shinoyama's latest project is a series of portraits of luxury Japanese sex dolls. The "Love Doll x Shinoyama Kishin" exhibition will run at the Shibuya art space Atsukobarouh Arts Drinks Talk from April 29th until May 14th. Shinoyama is best known for his full-frontal "hair nude" shoots, including Rie Miyazawa's iconic one in the early 1990s. He also recently released a nude photo book with Haruna Yabuki (Mari Abe). As we know, high-grade silicone Japanese sex dolls by the likes of Orient Industry are famous the world over and ...

The latest goddess of Twitter in Japan is a 19-year-old with a G-cup bakunyu chest to die for, not to mention pale white skin that looks as pure and innocent as they come. But don't be fooled. Her penchant for sharing nude selfies of herself reveals very explicitly that this young lady is certainly not shy and certainly not innocent -- even if she does ostensibly mask her face. And for some videos of the nameless angel touching herself in the shower and demonstrating the potential for paizuri her mega bust has, see Minkch.com (a regular source for these kinds of nude ...

Dokujo, an online magazine in Japan for single women, recently introduced the results of a survey of its female Japanese readers about dating foreign men. It asked readers around Japan about their experiences of dating foreigners. It collected the results of 404 readers and published the results. What do they reveal? 209 women (51%) said that they had never dated a foreigner. 82 women (20%) said that they had dated a foreigner in the past. 72 women (17%) said they were dating a foreigner at present. And 41 (10%) said that they had never dated a Japanese man. While this ...
