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 ...

In the age of social media, you are meant to tell the whole world what a great time you are having. Some people take that philosophy a little too far. And the results can go viral in a way you didn't expect. Big-shot corporate types are pretty confident when it comes to picking up girls. Just head to Ebisu Yokocho to see these men with fat wallets in action, doing nampa with ladies at neighboring tables. Two lawyers and a employee at the consultancy firm McKinsey & Company picked up a girl, who took them all back to her place. The quartet of happy-go-lucky Tokyoites then engaged in a ...

We're almost two years late to this (hey, we were busy blogging other stuff!) but we stumbled upon this funny video of our favorite male AV star, Shimiken, trying out a special "double spiral" condom. The video is produced by G-Project, which is an adult toy brand and who made the new condom. It's only in Japanese but you should be able to follow along regardless of your language ability. The best bit is when he tries on the condom and we see AV actress Michiru Morisaki helping a blindfolded Shimiken try the condom, and then Shimiken has to jerk off to stay erect. We also love ...

Bad news if you are into "JK business", the new style of enjo kosai (compensated dating) where you go on "dates" with schoolgirls that end in a sexual encounter. The days of casually walking into a JK business venue and getting an appointment with a teenager are possibly numbered. These services are often euphemistically called "osanpo" (walks), though they may also be in the form of "massages" or "soine" (snuggling up together in bed), or as conversations in a "cafe" or even sessions where the customer takes photos of the girl schoolgirl in swimwear. ("JK" stands for "joshi-kosei", or ...

We all love nude selfies. Regular readers will know how we have documented the wonders of the ladies in Japan who love to put their bodies out there for all the world to enjoy. But this may be coming to an end. The Asahi Shimbun reports that "nude selfies" are being targeted by "online perverts", so the Tokyo government is keen to criminalize them. Anyone who "requests" a nude selfie may be punished by a new regulation under consideration by Tokyo officials. In a bid to stop a perceived rise in teenagers sending such lewd self-portraits, the Tokyo metropolitan government ...

Another week and another survey brings grim news about sex in Japan. Following the news wire article a few days ago about 26.9% of idols being sexually harassed that has been making the rounds of various English-language publications, now comes another one about that perennial favorite: sexless Japan. Japan seems to be, if we believe the media, a sexless and barren land -- or a hyper-sexualised place of weird fetishes and mountains of porn. What is the truth? Both at the same time? Neither? Or something more nuanced in between? Needless to say, a blog like this hardly paints the best ...

A Japanese newswire article about sexual harassment among aspiring models and idols is doing the rounds, confirming what we've been saying for years. Apparently, a government survey has shown that 26.9% of Japanese young female models and starlets have received "unwanted requests for sexually oriented photo shoots". This comes hot on the heels of last year's controversy about widespread coercion in the porn industry. In the first survey by the Cabinet Office on sexual abuse against young women, 7.7% of respondents had been offered contracts to become models or ...

Tokyo police arrested the female president and four others for operating an online chat room on FC2 Live. The operator, OK, had a pay-to-view chat room where women would masturbate or perform other sexual acts on camera for the pleasure of viewers. The charges are, perhaps not surprisingly, public indecency or obscenity. Based out of a condo in Roppongi, OK was led by Kaori Okada (30), who is alleged to have appeared in the online videos herself. We have made some screen grabs of such a video, though we cannot confirm if this is Okada masturbating in front of a webcam. She has amazing ...

Some time ago we wrote about the 1990s scandal in which Ministry of Finance bureaucrats were arrested for receiving favors, including trips to shabu shabu restaurants where the female staff wore no panties. Such "no-pan kissa" (no-panties coffee shops or cafes) or restaurants peaked during the 1980s, especially in Osaka and Tokyo, and had many variations. Some had mirrored floors so diners could see up waitresses' skirts. Others may have offered "extras" not on the official menu. They might serve drinks or full meals -- but there was always a smile on the face of the clientele. In many ...

Back in June last year we blogged about "porn star karaoke" in Japan, where a karaoke system features AV stars who generously strip off naked as you sing. Now that's encouragement. Something similar has become a kind of minor talking point online recently. Once again, it's for Joysound (specifically, Joysound fR) and has Japanese porn stars. This time, if you sing well, you are "rewarded" with a mildly censored image of a nude AV idol both during the track and at the end. But if you stop singing, the footage switches to muscular men. If you're bisexual, it's a win-win. Otherwise, ...

Some people really don't care. All they want is for the whole world to enjoy their body. And this ultra-exhibitionist Japanese girl is one of them. Not only does she put nude pictures of herself online for everyone and anyone to view on Twitter, she even makes sure she shows her face so you can get a complete idea of who she is. And what a beauty she is. She has an awesome bust, that's for sure, but also nicely pointy nipples, too. Plus she's thankfully not afraid to show us her lovely bush (unless you would have preferred a lady who's fully shaved, that us) -- nor is she shy about ...

We have recently seen a lot of controversy in the porn industry in Japan over coercion after several prominent cases where women, including current stars, have come forward to allege they were forced to perform when they were originally scouted on different terms. It is one of the AV industry's dirty secrets that no one liked to talk about until last year. It has led to arrests and court cases as well as a wave of bad publicity in the mainstream media. And the latest "victim" of the controversy is not even a member of the industry! Now a lawyer who represented a production company ...

Of all the dozens of hot ladies showing off the cars at the annual Tokyo Auto Salon this year, this one particular "companion" (as they are somewhat euphemistically known) has apparently generated the most amount of viral juices... and it's not hard to see why. Not only does she have a revealing bust and slinky waist, but she is also showing off her pink panties. In case you are wondering, the lovely lady is cosplayer Komitsujo. There's never been a better reason to like cars or cosplay! Of course, the attendees to the Tokyo Auto Salon go there for ...

We all love interacting with our favorite idols on social media. Following their feeds is a way to feel closer to their lives; it tricks us into thinking that we actually "know" them or could actually meet them one day. After all, the whole original selling point of AKB48 -- other than the vast number of idols in the various levels of the group -- was that these were idols you could meet at "handshaking events" and vote for by at "elections". And so we get to see the drinks idols ordered at a cafe, or their latest meal or lovely view they are enjoying somewhere. The selfie has become ...

We spotted this nice article over on Global Voices about the "strangest" love hotel names in Japan. It compiles the results of a survey ranking the most unusual names for love hotels. As we know there are some strange-looking love hotels (both inside, with themed rooms, and outside, with gaudy castle exteriors), especially in the countryside. But now we know the strangest name. And it's Banana & Donut. Indeed, this is not a diner or cafe, but a love hotel in Saga Prefecture, southern Japan. Like similar establishments outside of Japan's big cities, Banana & Donut is located ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Tenga has produced a new commercial for its Iroha vibrator series. DJ and model Culumi Nakada stars in the ad, which specifically features the sleek black Yorukujira ("night whale") vibe from the Iroha Plus line. It shows a "typical" Sunday for a Japanese girl, relaxing at home with a long bath and then enjoying a solo session with her personal Tenga Iroha. It claims that using a vibrator like the Iroha will release "brain waves" and help make you think better after your tension is released. Tenga actually teamed up with a neuroscientist to measure brain activity after a ...

Remember Hikaru Toda? She's the filmmaker who produced a documentary about love hotels we featured in 2014. Now the Osaka- and London-based Toda (who has lived abroad for over 20 years) and her production studio, Little Stranger Films, is working on a documentary, Of Love & Law, about Japan's first LGBT law firm. She has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise $30,000 to finish the project. This is a documentary for anyone that has ever found themselves challenging or being challenged by the status quo. Of Love & Law tells the hidden stories of people who ...

The immensely successful "Futomomo" girls' thighs fetish photography series is back. After its previous incarnations in Tokyo attracted over 20,000 visitors, "World of Thighs" returns to Todays Gallery Studio in Asakusabashi from December 16th to January 22nd (closed December 31st to January 4th). This time there is a "hot spring" (onsen) theme. (Springs are traditionally very erotic in Japan.) It's not hard to see why this exhibition has pulled in the punters. As always, all the photographs by Yuria feature Japanese girls' slender legs. ...

The Japanese porn industry is in trouble.  While we might spend much of our time on this blog singing its praises, the truth is this has been a bad year, full of accusations of coercion and trafficking of female performers. We always knew it went on, especially towards the bottom end of the industry. Needless to say, the links between organized crime in Japan and other sections of society, such as big business, politics and mainstream entertainment, are well documented, and the idol and porn scenes are similarly connected. These are social problems, though. What about financial ...
