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): ...

Just a quick and dirty post today, indulging our tastes for vintage kink. It's no secret that we love older stuff here, especially hair nudes and sexy shoots from the 1990s and early 2000s. Give us Rie Miyazawa's "Santa Fe" over the latest AKB48 photo book any day. We also like to explore some of the fun, fascinating and fantastical aspects of the history of sex in Japan, from Yoshiwara to yobai night-crawling, shunga erotic prints, and no-panties shabu-shabu (yes, that really was a thing). One of our favorite recent finds in our daily trawls through the interwebs was this vintage ...

Last week Japanese highways were in the news when a truckload of live pigs was unleashed onto one road in Osaka. But this is a much more exciting anecdote. Imagine you are hurtling down one of Japan's many busy highways and, as you pass another car, you happen to notice the driver and passenger engaged in something other than navigating... and it's broad daylight. Oh, yes. This is one of those once-in-a-lifetime strokes of luck: spotting oral sex on the highway. Not only is the female passenger giving her lucky driving companion a blow job as he powers his motor vehicle, the ...

Tenga is doing so well that it can afford to send hot girls to a customer's homes. While that might sound like it defeats the whole purpose of a masturbation aid -- even ones as stylishly designed as Tenga -- be assured, Tenga has not branched out into prostitution and the ladies will only "dance" for customers. Japan's Apple of the adult industry is running this Go Go Tengirls Cool Tenga campaign to promote its summer-themed range of onacups, eggs, lubricants and other toys. The brand is asking people to tweet something with the campaign phrase and link in order to apply to take ...

They say that half the Japanese web is cats and the other half is food. That's false: a third is cats, a third is food and the last third is various shades of porn and adult content. So when you combine these elements, you get a recipe for a hit online or offline. For example, nyotaimori or the "condom cookbook" we featured back in 2014. Now along comes "Painyan", a new 96-page photo book by Yuki Aoyama released on May 31st. Regular readers will recall that Aoyama is the photographer with something of an obsession with schoolgirls. This time Aoyama has turned his lens away from ...

The question of Japanese bush is one that preoccupies much of our waking life. Too much or too little? For women who obsess about shaving almost every follicle elsewhere on the slender bodies, the bush is often an oasis of relatively unkempt hirsute charm: allowed to bloom and grow. It's thus sometimes a shock (pleasant or not) to encounter women who trim, wax or fully shave down there (paipan), even though this is very common elsewhere in the world. But what about the guys? Panasonic is suggesting that more and more men in Japan are seriously grooming their bodies, including ...

If this is what the ongoing cleaning-up of Shinjuku's notorious red-light district means, then bring it on. The AV and gravure idols magazine Weekly Playboy is opening a bar in Kabukicho from June 10th. Every night, different gravure models will be serving drinks at Shupure Sakaba (Weekly Playboy Bar) to a few very lucky customers. This is an exclusive VIP bar with just five seats per session and a limit of only three seatings per night. Needless to say, reservations are a must and there is a hefty cover charge of ¥10,000 for one hour and a four-course meal (drinks and food not in ...

Torture Garden Japan is back this summer for another bonanza of BDSM wonder. The premier mainstream event for bondage fans in Japan, it's also the only officially licensed offshoot of London’s original Torture Garden, the world's leading fetish club. It has been happening in Tokyo since 2001 and often holds events more than once a year, though the summer one is the highlight of the calendar. We blogged about the 2016 summer ball. Tickets to the event on June 10th at XEX Nihonbashi cost ¥6,000 and doors open at 10pm. Performers included Miss Miranda from the United States, ...

Recently it was "Kiss Day" in Japan. Given how little you see kissing in public here, perhaps it's pointless to have a designated day like that. That being said, apparently Japanese girls like kissing. In fact, 79.5% of respondents to a (somewhat bizarre) survey said they did, so it's safe to presume your date would like a smooch. It's just all about when and where. 51.8% of women said they had kissed someone they weren't dating (yet), proving it pays at least some of the time to lunge at a club or bar. (Curiously, the number was lower for guys: 58% of them said they had never ...

We first encountered the gyaru ero-cosplayer and model non (also known as Nonsummerjack) when we visited Fetish Fes 2015. Frankly she was so hot (and scantily clad) that we basically creamed in our pants. She was lying on a bed, charging a few coins for the chance to take a few photos. Since then we have occasionally followed her latest shoots and so on. All for purely professional reasons, of course! We are late with this -- it was an entry in our ever-growing backlog of future blog posts -- but back in April she did something pretty cool with the lower half of her body. Wait, stop ...

This 19-year-old college student may well have the best pair of breasts you are going to see this week, certainly on this side of the Pacific Ocean. Sure, there are plenty of AV idols out there with chests that are almost illegally impressive -- but you can't beat an amateur for sheer realism. After all, you might actually meet this girl in a bar in Tokyo! The anonymous university student is keen to show off her beautifully pale skin and firm nipples in a series of alluring nude selfies taken at home in front of the mirror and in the ...

Back in 2015 we reported about M.S.M. -- Men Who Have Sex With Men, an upcoming documentary by Ian Thomas Ash and Adrian Storey/Uchujin. Despite the announcement, nothing seemed to happen with it and the official website went dead. We assumed the project had somehow fizzled out. So we were very pleased to see that it is still alive, though in a slightly different form. Ian Thomas Ash and Adrian Storey/Uchujin are still involved, but as producers and DOP. The title has changed, too, and presumably the content. It's now called Boys for Sale. Boys are selling sex in Japan. Who ...

It's a crowded music industry, so what can you do to stand out from the rest? Well, the answer in Japan would seem to be: use female pubic hair to produce new sounds. No, this not appear to be a spoof and it's far too late for April Fools' Day. Taku Takahashi is a musician and DJ with the unit hip hop m-flo, which has experimented with finding new sounds. Takahashi's latest electronic triumph is In Motion. Here's how he describes it: An unprecedented musical project, Public Hair Grooving broadcasts a new wave of groove into the world with groomed pubic hair. Taku Takahashi from ...

Ayumi Hamasaki is the gift that keeps on giving. From her bizarre marriages and divorces to foreigners, to her ex-boyfriend's porn debut, and her ever-more desperate attempts to revive her career, there's always something new to say about her. But she hasn't been on our radar for a while. Where has she been? Courting more foreign men? Getting more plastic surgery? Eating well, it seems, judging by these pictures. This is Ayu at an arena concert in Yokohama, wearing a costume that showed off her newly voluptuous figure. Many have remarked online about how ...

We wonder how many articles we are going to see like this as we get closer towards the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The Washington Post is the latest media outlet to step into the controversy over osanpo (walking dates) and JK business (high school girl dating) with an article somewhat provocatively headlined "For vulnerable high school girls in Japan, a culture of 'dates' with older men". It sets the tone early on: "Here, 'high school dating' matches girls in uniforms with men in their 40s and 50s and beyond. And it means money changing hands." It goes on to explain that the dates may be a ...

Overseas there has recently been a lot of talk about making things like public toilets "genderless" so as not to show bias towards people who do not identity by binary genders. Japan has not embraced this kind of debate in the same way, not least because the LGBT community is largely reduced to being a subculture without real legal rights. On the other hand, fluid gender identity has been part of Japanese culture for a long time in Kabuki and so on. In many ways people just don't need all the labels and legal discussions that have obsessed other countries for the past generation. Things ...

Here's a nice tip from a very cute girl, which could well come in handy when you are with your next prize. G-cup idol Erina Kamiya from the group Kamen Joshi (Masked Girls) has unveiled a stunning technique: how to strip off a t-shirt in a flash. This is quite impressive, given that her massive chest could be reasonably expected to provide quite on obstruction to slipping off clothes. She shows off two different ways to take off a t-shirt in a second, notably faster than the conventional method. This is certainly appreciated, given that we all want more time to view Kamiya's ...

The visitor to Japan quickly notes the large number of vending machines everywhere. They are typically just for drinks but there are more unusual ones around. And this now includes gachapon capsule-style vending machines that offer sealed love letters from schoolgirls. Shocked? You shouldn't be. After all, in Japan you can get refrigerated used panties from vending machines as well as Tenga and even prostitutes. We can't speak for the veracity of the love letters, which cost ¥200 a pop, but they are written by hand and ostensibly from a young girl called Kiki. One ...

As we know, the popular meet-and-greet events that idols organize is one of the main reasons they attract such strong fan bases: you can actually meet and shake your idol's hand! But they can go wrong, badly wrong. Fans say horrible things. They are, quite literally, dirty. And they may even attack the idols, as AKB48 found out in 2014 when two idols were attacked with a saw. As such, these days there is often increased security at the events. CY8ER seems to be taking a tongue-in-cheek attitude towards this physical aspect of the idol industry. At a two-hour meet-and-greet event held at ...

In desperate need for a place to stay in Japan? All the hotels are full and you don't fancy your chances with an Airbnb? Another option is a love hotel, which is often not much more expensive than a regular hotel and sometimes even cheaper. However, many hotels cannot always be booked in advance and even ones that can are typically lacking in any services for non-Japanese-speaking guests. Enter Rakuten, the Japanese online retail giant that counts a travel site within its bevy. Due to the ongoing tourism boom in Japan, there is a shortage of hotel rooms and Rakuten Travel hopes to make ...

A survey by Japan Pres Research Institute asked 1,000 people across various countries for their views on Japan. Part of this included naming living or dead Japanese people that they knew. The results were, to say the least, intriguing... By default the survey became a resource for seeing which Japanese people are famous abroad. In France, America, South Korea and other places, the results were familiar: the prime minister, emperor, popular sports figures, an anime character, and so on. But in Thailand, things were rather different: 1. Shinzo Abe (178) 2. Doraemon (111) 3. The ...
