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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

"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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Up-and-coming model and actress Arisa Komiya stars in Yumeji: Ai no tobashiri (2015), sometimes known in English Yumeji: A Spurt of Love. It is a period drama about the affair between the painter Yumeji Takehisa and a girl called Hikono Kasai, who died young. It's all rather arty as you would expect from a biopic about a painter but we love the portrayed early twentieth-century sex that involved seductively slipping off a woman's kimono. Romance! While we are hardly in Ami Tomite territory here, the 23-year-old known for her acting in the Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters and ...

If you want to perv over scantily clad girls posing for anyone to take their picture, then head to Akihabara at the weekends where the main strip, Chuo-dori, is pedestrianized. You should find plenty of cosplayers happy for you to snap away. This has led to some issues in the past, though, when police and the local Chiyoda government have become alarmed that some ladies are effectively putting on mini stripteases for the benefits of the male audiences. Flasher idol Asuka Sawamoto even got arrested in 2008 for letting guys photograph her underwear. Some say that the street massacre in ...

The world media has once again taken an interest in Japanese pornography -- in particular, porn made for and starring seniors. We previously noted the press attention lavished on silver porn star Yasue Tomita and veteran male performer Shigeo Tokuda. Doing the rounds of various overseas media outlets this time is an Associated Foreign Press article about the retirement of Maori Tezuka. After a decade of peeling off for X-rated movies, a Japanese porn actress famous for being the country's oldest has called it quits -- at the ripe old age of 80. Maori Tezuka, a former opera ...

How much do women working as prostitutes in Japan earn? Regardless of your nocturnal habits, it's no doubt a question no doubt many of us have asked at various times. Grow As People (GAP) is a nonprofit group that supports sex workers and it just released a new report. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it found that wages decrease with the age of the workers (the opposite of the classic Japanese corporate model). It based its report on an online survey conducted in 2015 with 377 women working at Kanto-area "delivery health" brothels (fuzoku), which dispatches call girls to love ...

It's from late December 2013 but we just stumbled upon this stimulating article on The Tokyo Files about Yoshiwara. As regular readers will know, Yoshiwara was the licensed pleasure quarter in historical Tokyo (Edo). Today it doesn't correspond to an official address (funny that!) but you can find it at Senzoku 4-chome in Taito-ku, which is in the east of the city and very far from the expensive brand stores or third-wave coffee shops of Shinjuku, Shibuya and Omotesando. Its location from 1675 was moated with two entry points: the Japanese love to control everything, even ...

Lots of women marched around the world to mark International Women's Day on March 8th, including at least one group in Tokyo. But here is another protest by a different kind of feminist: sex workers. A group of sex workers (male and female) marched while wearing masks and carrying red umbrellas. This was part of Red Umbrella March, which has emerged as a sex worker solidarity event around the world. The sex workers started in Shibuya and then traveled to Kabukicho by train before finishing their march in Ueno. Along the way they kept their masks on and held signs indicating that they ...

To, er, celebrate International Women's Day, Al Jazeera ran this long and detailed story about sexual assault in Japan, claiming "every girl was a victim" but now more schoolgirls are speaking out about groping on public transportation. Tamaka Ogawa was about 10 years old when she was sexually assaulted for the first time. It was a public holiday and she was on the subway. A man standing behind her pulled down the band of her culottes and underwear, touched her bare bottom, then pressed himself against her. She recalls feeling shocked and physically sickened. When she reached home, she ...

This story has been doing the rounds of the foreign press and we have our doubts about its authenticity, given the overseas media's penchant for "wacky Japan" stories. But if it's even just a bit true, it's pretty incredible. After all, we all have to go some day. What better way than Death by Porn? An unnamed 50-year-old Japanese man was recently found dead "partially buried" underneath a pile of erotic magazines. The story apparently came from one of those people whose unfortunate job it is to clean up after so-called "lonely deaths" (where people die but no one finds them for a long ...

Japan's first strip show opened in January 1947 and we found some fantastic vintage advertising for it. 70 years ago, the pioneering strip club event took place in Shinjuku at the Teitoza theater and was rather tame, not surprising given the attitude toward women at the time. It was a "gakubuchi show", where woman would strike poses of famous nudes in art history, such as Botticelli's "The Birth of Venus" that features on the advertising. This is similar to other tableau vivant or poses plastiques early strip shows in other cities, perhaps especially London. They kept their bras on for ...

A journalist working on a BBC Three documentary about child sexual exploitation was held in police custody. The 29-year-old Stacey Dooley was held by police in Tokyo for two hours during the making of her documentary, Young Sex For Sale In Japan. "It [the doc] focuses on the fact they only made it illegal to possess child pornography in 2014," said Dooley. "We set out to try and understand why it took a privileged country, like Japan, so long to come to this conclusion. Also to see if the change in their law had made any real difference on the ground." Dooley and her team were ...

This busty 18-year-old Japanese schoolgirl has shared nude selfies of her beautiful body and its pale white skin (bihaku) with the world via Twitter. She really does have an impressive bust, which makes us suspect she's not a schoolgirl like some people are saying. She's also nicely curvy and has a great line of bras. Is she also paipan? Perhaps almost. Well, however old she is she deserves our attention. Sadly we can't identify her account with certainty (anyone know for sure?). It might have been this one but she has recently deleted ...
