A new survey by the folks over at Time Out Tokyo has provided us an interesting snapshot of sexual habits in the nation’s capital in 2011. Responding to a request from May 23rd, over 800 people eventually completed the survey, painting an illuminating picture of the sex lives of present-day Tokyoites.
With male respondents accounting for 61% of the total, females taking 39%, the survey delved into such issues as how long you would need to know somebody before having sex (answers running from mere hours to several years), who should initiate a pickup (seems the ball is in your court, gentlemen) and which day of the week is best for picking someone up on (somewhat unsurprisingly, Friday took this accolade). Other interesting tidbits include a rather frosty reception for Japanese porn, with only 27% of respondants rating the average AV as particularly exciting, revelations regarding public indecency (28% claimed to have ‘publicly penetrated’) and a variety of highly entertaining responses to the statement ‘I’m looking for somebody in Tokyo who will ________ in bed’ (This writer’s favourites including: “Behave like a cat!”, “Share the loneliness…”, “At least do some of the work!” and “Play Nintendo 3DS.”).
Last but certainly not least of all, the article sets you up with some of Tokyo’s favourite pick-up lines, lest you find yourself in the great city and in need of some sexual healing. Lines submitted by English-speaking respondants tended towards the simpler end of the scale (“Have you ever kissed a foreigner?”, “I want to drink miso soup with you”, “It’s my first night in Tokyo…”, “Wanna get out of here and fuck?”) while those provided by Japanese speakers ran the gamut between highly elaborate offerings (“Are you the princess I’ve been waiting for all this time?”) and desperate begging (“Are you lonely? I’m lonely. Let’s be together.”). Whatever strategy you go with, however, take note that if you’re a foreigner the odds remain slightly stacked against you – only 36% could claim to have experienced ‘interracial sex activities’. Need help beating the numbers? An implement or three from the ever-reliable Kanojo Toys could go a long way towards sealing that deal. Just saying.
You know you’ve hit the big leagues in the wonderful world of JAV when you’ve featured in movies alongside (not to mention occasionally inside) the likes of gyaru goddess Mana Izumi and this writer’s perpetual go-to girl, Rumika. So it is with the luscious Kokomi Naruse (sometimes Cocomi Naruse or even Cocomin) who’ll be providing you with some mouthwatering eye-candy this week.
Since debuting in 2008, the Niigata-born 22-year-old has gone from strength to strength, featuring in photo books, collaborative movies and a swath of electrifyingly sexy solo efforts. Equally convincing as a sweet and infinitely-corruptible schoolgirl or a vampish, wanton office lady, she simply oozes sex-appeal wherever she crops up.
It’s easy to see from the evidence at hand just why this devilish little tidbit has seen her popularity grow and grow. Keep your eyes peeled for more of the same knee-weakening material to come from this girl in the future. Can’t wait!
For all the ladies, and the gentlemen that love to keep them happy, Kanojo Toys proudly presents the Valkyrie vibrator. Aptly named for the Norwegian battle goddesses of legend, here’s a toy that’s guaranteed to carry you off to screaming, ecstatic Valhalla. Simply hold down the button on the Valkyrie to power her up to the max – designed specifically with “one-push” control in mind, you’ll waste no time on overcomplicated settings or multiple buttons, leaving you with a streamlined, straight-to-business orgasm experience.
With smooth handling, you’ll easily manipulate the bright pink massager head to any angle you desire. The 2.5m (8.2 ft) AC adapter cord, meanwhile, ensures you can literally roll around in pleasure as the Valkyrie throbs and grinds in your grasp. Distracting operating noises been a deal-breaker with past vibes? Never fear -the Valkyrie is engeniereed for quiet running. Of course, we can’t guarantee it won’t be the cause of some other distracting emissions, but isn’t that the beauty of it? Ready to take a trip to Heaven? Grab yours now.
A man has been arrested in Tokyo for having three schoolgirls spit out saliva and filming them in the process. Toshihiko Mizuno, a jobless 55-year-old, was taken in on suspicion of “habitual indecency,” which carries a penalty of up to one year in jail or a fine of one million yen ($12,400), a statement from the Metropolitan Police Department said.
Mizuno had separately approached three girls, aged nine and ten, in October and December of last year, either outside apartment towers or in the street. His modus operandi was to claim that he was conducting research on saliva and was in need of samples. “He videotaped them as they spat out saliva. He also asked them to open their mouths and filmed their mouth interiors and tongues,” a Metropolitan Police Department official said. “He has done so habitually to satisfy his sexual desire.” Police sources have also been quoted as saying that Mizuno approached about 4,000 young girls, and managed to collect saliva from about 500 of them, over a period of 17 years in Tokyo and Saitama. A search of his house uncovered 26 videotapes showing more than 200 girls, news agencies said.
While there’s no denying Mr. Mizuno’s commitment to his perversion, he certainly went about satisfying it the wrong way. There’s a time and a place for letting your inner pervert out of the bag, and a place to go for all the supplies you’ll require when that moment arises. When you start to feel that itch, head over to Kanojo Toys and stock up on goodies that’ll thrill and fulfill you without putting you on the wrong side of prison bars.
It might seem more than a tad cruel to publicly name and shame the least popular members of your group while vaulting others onto a pedestal to flaunt at the head of your column (at least until the next election rolls around). Then again, with 48 members to keep track of, the marketing team over at AKB headquarters are probably grateful for any help at all in that department – hate to put a dud on the next single cover, after all. Thus, we have the results of the 3rd Senbatsu Election to mull over.
The divine Atsuko Maeda has, somewhat predictably, nabbed the top spot in this year’s rankings, knocking former reigning Queen Yuko Oshima into a not-unrespectable 2nd position. Undoubtedly buoyed by greater exposure due to her TV and film appearances, both past and upcoming, comely young Ms. Maeda’s star continues to rise. Her starring role in the recently-released PV for AKB’s 21st single ‘Everyday, Kachusha’ reflects this – we’re not likely to see her fade into the background anytime soon, but that’s hardly a cause for complaint.
Elsewhere, the perpetually cute-as-a-button Tomomi Itano slipped a full four places, from last year’s 4th to 8th position, a little surprising given the launch of her solo career this year has provided her no shortage of publicity (or are peeved AKB loyalists punishing her for the slight?). Though gracious when interviewed about the drop, apparently unperturbed, she might do well to take steps to boost her image before the next election arrives. It would be a pity for that darling face to disappear into the featureless mass of background flesh that is, well, everybody else in AKB48.
Not all of us are thrilled by the prospect of watching flimsy, vrooming death-traps circle a few kilometers of track for lap after endless lap as a means of entertainment, but it’d take a heart of stone indeed to not be moved by the charming set of ladies that motorsports bring to the table – at their lovely feet at least the claim of inducing boredom could never be laid. In this regard the gorgeous Shōko Hamada is one among many, but one glance at her pics and you’ll see she’s most definitely in pole position.
‘Race Queen’, of course, is not the only title to adorn the divine Ms. Hamada’s CV. When she’s not heating things up trackside, the 25-year old stunner can be found posing for any number of scintillating gravure collections, appearing in DVDs, TV Dramas and even blockbuster video games (check out her cameo on a poster in MGS3, Snake fans) and releasing CDs (mostly cover versions to be sure, but let’s cut the lady some slack – clearly her schedule is already fit to burst). This smoldering beauty has her fingers in a lot of pies, and we’re all the more grateful for it.
With such a wealth of material available across audio and visual media, it goes without saying that this is a lady who you should take the time to investigate further in the future. For now though, here are a few fine example shots to whet your colletive appetite. Gentlemen, start your engines!!
Even the most well-endowed among us are constrained by the laws of nature when it comes to the essential shape of the equipment we pack. No matter how well you use it, there will surely come a time when the lady (or ladies) in your life crave a little something more than you came into this world built to supply. Fear not, friends. Those busy beavers at Kanojo Toys are one step ahead of the curve as always, ready to cater to this very need with a simple but oh-so-effective new product – the Men’s Generation Neo Isochin Cap.
This imposing cock-extender, from the makers of the equally indispensable Okay Hokay accessory, provides length, girth and some nifty added appendages to add that extra spice to your performance. It also doubles as a dildo or vibrator attachment for when she’s in the mood for a little solo entertainment. The protruding, tentacle-like nubs will tease, tickle and satisfy in ways she has never experienced, while the bigger head makes for deeper, wider penetration – good news for all concerned.
This product comes in a choice of natural or dark pink colours, is stretchy and pliable, and, best of all, includes bonus ‘lips’ to provide the best of simulated blow jobs – solo fun isn’t just for the ladies, after all. Slip it on and you’ll soon find yourself on both the giving AND receiving ends of an experience beyond that of any mere mortal cock. For this and a plethora of other add-ons to add extra fuel to your burning desires, there really only is one place to go.
Underage fans of overlarge idol groups rejoice – the long-standing ban on under-18s attending SDN48′s theatre performances has been lifted at last, granting you access to the AKB girls’ older, edgier counterparts in (almost) all their raunchy glory.
SDN, the brainchild of AKB48 producer Yasushi Akimoto, was conceived as an “adult idol” group, differentiated from AKB through sexier attire and their focus as a “Saturday Night”-style act (hence the name) aimed at a more mature audience. Having made their major label debut on Universal Music in November of last year with the single ‘Gagaga’, the group have enjoyed widespread popularity from Day One, with both that first single and its follow-up performing well and their stage show Yuuwaku no Garter consistently selling-out, something that can only continue in the wake of this newest development. While these shows were previously limited to over 18s, from June 16th shows before 7PM will be available to fans below that age. The earlier shows will now feature somewhat toned-down content, with choreography altered and some songs having their lyrics censored.
With tickets to the early shows being offered at a price of 2000 yen, instead of the usual 3000, SDN48 are sure to celebrate as fruitful an end to their first year as full-fledged stars of the idol scene as its beginning, with fans old and new flocking to the theatre. Naturally, though, if you’re over 18 there’s no choice to be made in the matter – I recommend the late showings every time. These saucy ladies could teach those whippersnappers in AKB a thing or three about how to sex up a performance.
Possibly the only thing better than the sight of a gorgeous girl, bound in submission to serve her Master’s every depraved whim, is the knowledge that said image is being auctioned for a good cause to boot. Three months on, the impact of the earthquake/tsunami and subsequent nuclear fears that rocked Japan is still being sorely felt by many in the country, and one big-hearted group of kinky artists based in San Francisco’s Bay Area has stepped up to the plate in a big way, raising funds for the relief effort the best way they know how: through taking dirty pictures.
The event, entitled Shibari Relief (referencing the noble Japanese art of erotic ropework), saw a number of artists who deal in kinky and erotic themes sell or auction off their works, and eventually went on to raise $2500 for the American Red Cross, who have been active in the affected regions of Japan since the immediate aftermath of the disaster. Mark I. Chester, a longtime gay-radical sex photographer and one of the event organizers, was quoted as saying: “While the funds we raised are only a drop in the bucket compared with what is needed, it felt good to provide what support and help we were capable of giving rather than just sitting on the side and shaking our heads.”
While the fundraiser is now over their website will remain active, providing links to other ways people can help. If you’ve yet to do so, get on over there or to one of the many secure places on the web you can donate to the aid efforts and show your love for the country that’s given us all so many good times.
High-brow art is all well and good, but, when you get right down to it, we are all of us primarily concerned with one thing and one thing only. It should therefore come as a welcome but hardly surprising fact that the book that knocked Japanese national treasure Haruki Murakami’s critically lauded 1Q84 into a not-at-all close 2nd place on Amazon.co.jp’s bestseller list for last year has turned out to be a sex-tips manual – namely ‘A Female Doctor Instructs in Really Enjoyable Sex’.
The book, an ‘advanced level’ compilation of lectures and notes, has sold more than 400,000 copies thus far and offers instruction on such varied topics as the optimum method of manipulating the G-spot, love-making for mature couples and how to spice up a sexless union (a timely intervention given the unfortunate rise of that particular problem in modern Japan). The book’s popularity is no mean feat given that several major Japanese newspapers refused to advertise it at all (reasons given for this action have ranged from the flimsy to the outright prudish) and, if the countless glowing reviews on its Amazon page are to be believed, the advice contained within has proven invaluable to people all across the nation and beyond.
For Japanese speakers in need of a little nudge in the right direction bedroom-wise, this might well be the tome for you. The rest of us can take comfort, meanwhile, in some pics of other sexually stimulating healthcare professionals. These girls in uniform your cup of tea? You could do worse than shoot across to Kanojo Toys in that case – pick yourself up a few similarly themed items.
