Here's something that may restore your faith in Japanese TV. Tokumei Kakaricho Tadano Hitoshi is a TV series based on the manga by Kimio Yanagisawa. It has already been adapted into a TV drama once before but now a new version is streaming on AbemaTV, an online streaming channel. It is the channel's first original series. Japanese TV is famously weird, but in terms of nudity is pretty modest and prim. But satellite TV and online TV is not so restricted and can show nudity and sex scenes, not to mention strange shows where porn stars jerk off men on camera or telethons where men line up ...

Arashi's Jun Matsumoto has been dating the actress Mao Inoue, if the rumors are to be believed, but their agencies prevent the stars -- who are not getting any younger and perhaps about to pass their peak -- from making their relationship public, yet alone marrying. So what to make of these latest tabloid allegations? Matsumoto is now apparently cheating on Mao with another woman. And she's a porn star. Yes, it seems that being a member of Arashi is a ticket to date and (supposedly) live with a popular actress while also having fun with a member of the adult industry. At the end of ...

Japanese condom advertising is often much more inventive than regular commercials, which typically rely on using ubiquitous celebrities rather than any imagination. Contraception, on the other hand, employs everything from dinosaur sex to horror movies. We stumbled upon this Durex condom commercial, which is actually from May 2015. Some people online were saying it was themed around the Kama Sutra (with some added wrestling spice) and had been "banned". It's pretty awesome. First off, it's not "banned" but available for all the world to see. The official Durex upload on ...

There's a fine line between discreet and deceptive, and the new Tenga Iroha vibrator treads it very well: the Tenga Iroha Stick Lipstick Vibrator is as awesome as it sounds, though it's no mere visual gimmick. Sure, it looks just like a stick of lipstick but this is not simply a novelty adult toy. Lord knows we have enough of those. The choice of design works really well, too, because you can adjust the intensity of the buzzing by turning the base and then the "lipstick" tip gets going. Its contours and ridges can give you or your partner all manner of delicate attention that regular ...

Once again we have an alarming announcement from Japan's health ministry that the number of syphilis patients in Japan has gone up. This has become a regular news item of late, prompting the ministry to launch a special team to investigate ways to combat the spread of sexually transmitted infections and diseases. Hospital data from across Japan reports that the number of syphilis patients totaled 4,259 in early December, which is an big increase of 77% from 2,412 in the corresponding period in 2015, and more than seven-fold from a decade ago. It seems that current efforts to ...

Asian men don't get a good deal in Hollywood. When was the last time that you saw an Asian leading man in a Western movie treated as a sex symbol in the same way as a white actor? Leela Rose set out to challenge this. We sympathise. Many foreign female residents in Japan face problems: sexism and harassment by both Japanese and foreigners as well as romantic issues (foreigners may not be interested because there are so many Japanese ladies to pursue while local men may be too intimidated by a confident Westerner). She did it by going around Roppongi and essentially forcing ...

Is Shoko Takahashi/Takasaki the perfect soapland sex worker? She certainly looks and acts the part in her latest AV release from Moodyz, aptly titled "Gravure Soap". The former gravure idol with the mega bust, whose switch to a career in porn last year was one of the highlights of the calendar, demonstrates how an awesome soapland experience should look. We have to use our fertile imaginations for how it feels, though. After all, she certainly has the breasts for paizuri and a curvy body that is ideal for rubbing herself all over a very lucky, prone male ...

It's always a sad day when we spot news that our favorite gravure idols have got hitched. Back in 2015 Yumi Sugimoto produced probably her sexiest and most naked photo book ever. "Chiamata" showed off quite a bit of flesh, even if it wasn't quite full-frontal stuff. Well, enjoy those images for all they are worth, folks. That photo book may well be her last, assuming the common pattern repeats here. Sugimoto has now gotten married to a man four years her junior after around a year of dating, it emerged at the end of December. Typically gravure idols stop working as ...

Recently we've been admiring a nice trend for weekly magazines in Japan to produce fantastic photo shoots featuring a host of stars showing off their naked bodies. We saw it in the 51 naked porn stars in Weekly Playboy and then 50 semi-naked gravure ...

Let's start the year as we mean to go on: with some nude pictures of Korean actress Bae Doo-na. The Sense8 star was back in the Christmas one-off special of the Netflix sci-fi drama. She previously showed off her curvy butt for the first season of the American series. Could she go one further? In the Christmas special Bae Doo-na has a couple of scenes that give a glimpse into a newly toned, sporty body as she does what she does best: seduce a weaker male and show him she means business when it comes to getting her way with sex. She throws a man down in a locker room and clambers on ...

You've seen the movie. Now get the parody onahole. The Kimi no Ana Your Name Kimi no Na wa Parody Onahole is -- you've guessed it -- inspired by Your Name (Kimi no Na wa), the Makoto Shinkai anime that has been the biggest film of the year in Japan. This cheap but effective masturbator sleeve is called Kimi no Ana or "Your Hole". As Kanojo Toys says, it is initially ambiguous whether this is an anal or vaginal experience. Is it a vagina? Is it a butt hole? The only way to find out is to insert yourself and explore! The third section has a spiral-like structure with rings ...

To round off the year with a bang, Tenga has generously given us a Christmas gift par excellence! The Tenga Moova is the latest toy from the Apple of the Japanese adult industry. It looks amazing, feels even better -- and is even designed with maintenance fully in mind. Coming in two colors (Silky White or Rocky Black), the Tenga Moova is a masturbation aid billed as a "flexible spinning hole". Tenga fans will be quick to spot that it looks like the cousin to the sculpturally designed Tenga 3D. The beautiful, almost science-fiction toy offers pleasure through its lattice ...

Here is an awesome, belated Christmas present for you folks: nude photos of Moemi Katayama that have leaked ahead of the official release of her new photo book out next year. The 26-year-old Katayama has become increasingly better known over the past 1-2 years. She released her first photo book in September and the new one, "Rashin", comes out on January 5th. Since 2015 she has been a favorite gravure idol for weekly tabloid magazine shoots, and even appeared in a Kirin ad in May. This, though, is by far the most explicit the busty G-cup gravure idol has ...

Keep in the Yuletide mood with some naked pictures of a new Mugi Kadowaki sex scene. The up-and-coming Japanese actress is continuing to please us. While peers like Yoko Maki or Yuriko Yoshitaka only dared strip off once for breakthrough roles before going very boring and mainstream, Kadowaki has repeated her confidence with performing sex scenes on film. She had a fairly graphic role in Ai no Uzu (Love's Whirlpool), set in a swinger's club in Kabukicho. Her latest is in Double Life (2016), also known by its Japanese title Nijuu Seikatsu. Directed by Yoshiyuki Kishi, it stars the ...

Disgraced gravure idol and now one of AV's top porn stars Shoko Takahashi/Takasaki has joined her fellow porn newcomer Yua Mikami (Momona Kito) for what must be the sexiest photo shoot of the year. These nude shots, taken for Weekly Playboy in the autumn, really show off both their voluptuous bodies to the full. What's more, in a more recent subsequent nude photo shoot the two were joined by none other than Mana Sakura, who is already a major star in her own right. There was even a 30-minute video to accompany the "lesbian threesome" ...

We want to introduce the work of Masaki C Matsumoto, a queer activist, feminist, and YouTuber working hard to challenge stereotypes about sexual minorities in Japan. As he (perhaps provocatively) says: "Hate crime is nonexistent in Japan," "Japan only recently started having pride marches," "homosexuality is accepted in Japan because of the traditional male-male shudo sexual/romantic culture," "Japanese media are LGBT-friendly," and "Taiga Ishikawa is the first openly gay politician in Japan" are all false! In general, Matsumoto's main point -- and it's a good one -- is that ...

If you have a fetish for omorashi, there's no shortage of adult videos or content for you to enjoy in Japan. There's even omorashi virtual reality out there if you are so inclined. Omorashi is different to other general golden shower and pee fetishes. It means when someone is wetting him or herself, and often refers to the pleasure gained from watching that person squirm with embarrassment as their clothes get wet or the pee comes out. Perhaps it is something about the shame and the humiliation that appeals to people in a culture stereotypically associated with formality and rigid ...

Condoms in Japan are an underused breed, judging by the rampant venereal disease and unplanned pregnancies. As such, condom brands try all kinds of wacky campaigns to get young men and women interested in using their products. This also includes free giveaways. Earlier this year, Tenga gave away complimentary condoms to newly enfranchised voters at the House of Councillors election. You might be forgiven for thinking that otaku are the demographic with the least need for contraception in their lives, but you would be wrong. That is, if Comiket is to be believed. A booth at the ...

What's better than getting a handjob from someone else? Getting jerked off by someone else while they use two hands! That's the beguiling idea behind the Tekokikko Double Handjob Masturbator, which is a sequel of sorts to the Tekoki Musume Handjob Daughter. Imagine a cute Japanese minx wrapping both her hands around your erect member and jerking you off until you cum in her face. It's not just a sculptural gimmick, though. The inner design of the hands has been very carefully planned. As Kanojo Toys says, "the inside of her palms are fitted with the folds and nubs ...

One of our ongoing preoccupations is what happens to gravure and music idols after they stop being famous. Once they have faded into obscurity, how do they survive? Get married and become homemakers? Go into hostessing or even prostitution? Or a totally different line of work? Some evidently advance into careers in AV. We also previously looked at the case of Yuka Kosaka, who now runs a nursery school in Chiba. Others make the unexpected leap into mainstream politics. Here is another cautionary tale. The tarento Hanako Takigawa is only 28 but already has had a troubled, ...

It's the video that launched a thousand imitators (and counting). Pikotaro's PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen) video made "PPAP" one of the buzzwords of the year and inspired a whole meme industry. No doubt it will blow over in a few weeks' time. Until them we can enjoy the variations, not least this eye-opening one by gravure idol Jun Amaki. The busty gal is best known for her "I cup" chest and being a petite 148cm. That's quite a combination. She's also a former member of the masked idols group Kamen Joshi. She has created a version of Pikotaro's PPAP ...

The Crawler in the Attic is a 2016 soft-core porn film based on the frequently adapted 1925 novel by erotic mystery writer Edogawa Rampo. Directed by Shoji Kubota, the plot concerns a private detective investigating the love triangle between a rich family's daughter, her fiancé, and his lover. The film stars Yuki Mamiya (Yuki Mogami), demonstrating her continued enthusiasm for doing nude sex scenes. While not as wild as her bondage-themed outing in Sweet Whip, there is still a lot of Yuki's radiant flesh on display here, especially her cute ...

Japan's futanari fetish just got a new toy to gratify all those urges that sadly can't be easily satisfied in real life. As we know, futanari are not newhalf transgender women or josou cross-dressers. The key difference is that they are genuine hermaphrodites with both sex organs. As such, futanari is normally relegated to the world of anime, eroge and adult manga, or AV with carefully placed dildos so the girls seem to have cocks. The Ryosei Guyu Onapet Futanari Onahole has everything you could want -- and it fits in the palm of your hand. The name literally means "hermaphrodite ...

A new low-budget dramedy called Suki demo nai kuseni (Even though I don't like you) stars a "mysterious" actress called Riko, about whom almost nothing is known. One thing is certain, though: she is very willing to shed her clothes for her craft. And very well she does at it, too, as the lengthy, explicit sex scenes attest. See her nipples get fingered, watch her ride in the lap of a lucky guy, and peep in while she get head. In a rare move, there is even full-frontal nudity that doesn't seem to be ...

We reported earlier this year about the AV debut of actress and model Anri Sakaguchi. To appear in "What a day!!" the 25-year-old Sakaguchi (now going by just "Anri") is reportedly getting paid ¥120 million -- a suspiciously high figure considering she is a B-list celebrity. She made her JAV debut on the Muteki label, which specializes in these kinds of career switchovers from gravure, music idol or mainstream entertainment. Past successes include with Yua Mikami/Momona Kito and Shoko Takahashi/Takasaki. Most of these stars, though, do one or just a small number AV releases before ...
