Happy news for all you guys now. Haruna Yabuki, the sexy 29-year-old model and actress also know as Mari Abe, has split from her boyfriend, the actor Masaki Nishina. As we know, Haruna Yabuki is almost impossibly hot, the sultry sexiness oozing off her curves. She had been dating the 31-year-old Nishina since last August but their nocturnal coupling is officially over. Apparently in mid-January she popped round to her boyfriend's apartment to find him with his cock going in and out of another girl. To be precise, he was cheating on Haruna with a kyaba kura girl (a ...

Line is one of the most popular apps at the moment, especially in Asia. But it's not just for using cute characters to communicate. It's also for prostitution. That is, if you are a 39-year-old guy looking for underage girls. Restaurant worker Koji Kanmera got to know the 16-year-old high school runaway over Line. He then paid her 15,000 yen in cash and they retired to a hotel in Ome City, on the outskirts of Tokyo. The girl advertised herself on Line as a "runaway with no money, in need of support" -- which might be taken as bait enough. "I wanted to have fun with a young ...

You've heard of revenge porn, right? Where someone (usually a guy) puts video or images online showing a former partner engaged in sexual acts in order to punish them for breaking up with them? Well, this is different... but much more enterprising. When we first read on TokyoReporter about a Sendai man who had been arrested by police for selling "obscene photographs of his wife" we immediately assumed this was revenge porn. But then things got a bit weirder. Officers from the Omori Police Station charged metal worker Yuji Chiba, 35, and his wife Chihiro, 30, with the ...

That girl may be older than you think. Often the girls who look super young in the photo shoots or in the porno flicks are not as young as the creators want you to think! But the opposite is true too. That girl may be so young you shouldn't even look at her, let alone think about doing stuff to her! Girls' bars are no strangers to employing underage labor, both for their allure and also no doubt their cheapness. While you might expect to find a teenager behind the counter, we have never heard of one this young before! An elementary school six grader aged just twelve has been ...

Be careful if something seems too good to be true. It usually is. If you are on the street and are enticed by a woman, remember -- only fools rush in. But perhaps we shouldn't be surprised. The "woman" in question certainly didn't look like this. No, instead Kyoto police have arrested self-employed Naohiro Nagaoka (72) after he dressed up as a woman and repeatedly called out to men passing on the street. Is cross-dressing now a crime? Is Kyoto becoming Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward? No, Naohiro Nagaoka wasn't just indulging in his drag queen proclivities. He was trying to rob men ...

Police in Nishi-Biwajima in Aichi Prefecture have arrested three people for public indecency. The leader was company employee Hiroki Muramatsu (51) from Saitama, who was shooting two models in the buff. They were Eri Nishiyama (22) from Nakano in Tokyo, and an unnamed 19-year-old minor. Muramatsu had apparently been doing a shoot at a studio in Kita-Nagoya City around noon on Marh 23rd, which including getting both the ladies completely naked. Muramatsu is a veteran -- apparently he does such naked shoots every weekend in Nagoya and Tokyo. He recruits models online. Nishiyama ...

He's at it again. TV personality and comedian Sanma Ashiya (58) is known as a ladies' man but isn't this going too far? Late last year it was reported that the TV veteran was sleeping with Makoto Yuuki, then a mere 23 to Sanma's nearly 60. We were steaming with envy at the idea of Sanma's wrinkly body entwined with Makoto's. Here comes the new development that Sanma has also been sleeping with Eririka Katagiri (22), as revealed by Eririka during a live web broadcast. Eririka Katagiri is actually a former amateur who made herself a star through dancing in a sexy Nico Nico Douga ...

A 22-year-old self-proclaimed "talent" has been arrested for shoplifting, in the process of which she claimed to be popular actress Emi Takei. Misaki Hashikawa went to a specialist shop in Ikebukuro and tried on some 40 leotards, shoplifting 22 of them. She then sold the leotards in online auctions, rather foolishly using her own name. But if you are going to the trouble of subterfuge, at least steal something with value, right? Well, actually leotards can fetch a reasonable price. Apparently Hashikawa stole the equivalent of ¥1.1 million (over $10,000) of ...

In the latest Olympic "clean-up" operation, now Chiyoda ward -- a large district in central Tokyo -- is following the efforts of police in Akihabara to crack down on "walking dates" passing new local legislation to ban them from April 1st. In so-called "JK osanpo" men meet with girls they believe are high school students (the "JK" stands for "joshi kousei") and go on a "walk" with them, often culminating at a love hotel. These may be services that are prostitution in disguise or they may be more covertly arranged through individuals over websites. Some people don't just want sex, ...

On March 18th, pop singer Hikaru Utada has activated her Twitter account for the first time in 1.5 months. And one of her surprisingly rare tweets involved her confessing that "I have never been to a love hotel." Utada of course has been famous since a young age, making her debut at 15. Even wandering the street is impossible, let alone a secret tryst at a love hotel. She would have been carefully managed by her agency and label, plus she was married to filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya from 2002 to 2007. Since then she has maintained a lower profile, living partly in London, where she met ...

The winner of the coveted "Miss Universe Japan 2014" has been announced as Keiko Tsuji, a twenty-year-old student from Okinawa and representing Nagasaki Prefecture. She will next represent Japan at the Miss Universe beauty contest. Tsuji was chosen from a shortlist of around 40 after roughly 5,000 candidates applied from all over Japan. These being enlightened times, there was also a male version, with Tohru Higa, another Okinawan, announced as the winner. Such beauty contests have been marred in Japan by scandal of late. Ikumi Yoshimatsu, the 2012 winner of Miss International, ...

Kanazawa is a genteel small city near the western coast of Japan, sandwiched between the central mountains and the Sea of Japan. It is home to samurai houses, art museums, a famous garden, and an old geisha district. In other words, it is like an alternate Kyoto. But don't be fooled. Underneath this exterior of tranquility and grace there is a hotbed of fetishism. Local police arrested a 21-year-old fourth-year college student from Takaoka City in neighboring Toyama City on suspicion on sneaking into an elementary school in order to steal girls' indoor shoes. "I wanted to smell the ...

A 55-year-old man interested only in money and exploiting scantily-clad teenagers in his quest to empty the wallets of naive otaku and corporations with tastes bad enough to agree to advertising campaigns featuring his minions -- Yasushi Akimoto, the producer behind AKB48 and all its spinoffs. This is a man whose only goal is to make his company's bank account richer, no matter what depths he plumbs. This is a man who still claims to be making "music" despite his constant pandering to the lowest denominator in the AKB48 music videos and ad campaigns (nothing wrong with porn, of course, ...

Tokyo Reporter has an intriguing little report from a tabloid. In the January 31 issue of Shukan Asahi, Minori Kitahara expressed concern over the popularity of a male masturbation aid that attempts to simulate the feeling of sex with an underage girl. Kitahara is a fortysomething female "sexpert" and bestselling author. She was apparently shocked -- we weren't -- by the high sales ranks on Amazon.co.jp for such onahole masturbation sleeves as the Innocent Little Sister Onahole and Seven Teen Bordeaux Onahole, which replicate a sexual experience with a Japanese teenaged ...

Getting a side job where you can watch uncensored porn sounds like a male dream come true. But hang on. Uncensored porn? Oh, right, in Japan, due to bizarre adherence to a century-old regulation created to try to make Japan similar to "moral" Christian western nations, porn has genitals blurred out. Technically, if you are selling porn in Japan that isn't pixellated, you are breaking the law. (And then it gets complicated if it's just a photo with genitals that is more "artistic" than pornographic, or if it's a mainstream film with full-frontal nudity -- all of which were also censored ...

With the girls ever younger and the pressure to appear wrinkle-free and with the softest of skin that can stand up to iPad zooms, how do once popular Gravure models maintain a career after they hit 30? Mayumi Ono (小野真弓) was never a mega star in the idol world. Her D-cup and girl-next-door made her look like a sexy TV presenter. She had fans but not legions of them. We liked her before and treated ourselves to a selection of images for an Idol of the Week a couple of years ago. So now she's 31, how can she give her thirteen-year career a second boost now that it has started to ...

In the past we've encountered a thief who targeted hostesses and their shoes, a violent lingerie bandit who literally tears his swag off the bodies of his victims, a bra theft addict, and even a 82-year-old panties thief. Now comes another shocking tale of lingerie larceny... The media has reported the indictment of a man in Sano, Tochigi Prefecture, for stealing more than 200 items of woman's underwear. Tsutomu Kashiwase (44) apparently stole 217 items across the three prefectures of Tochigi, Gunma and Saitama. The Japanese countryside would seem to be populated by roaming ...

Last night in the pouring rain saw the Japan Adult Awards held in Tokyo. The annual prizes are the Japanese porn industry's chance to pat itself on the back and rewards its top actresses with trinkets for their efforts over the past year. Last year's winners include Haruki Sato for best actress and Akari Hoshino in the jukujo category. The much-coveted Best Actress prize was taken home by Yui Hatano, who made her debut way back in 2008. While we were rooting for Mei Hayama in the Best Newcomer Award, she sadly lost out to Marina Shirashi (below left). The jukujo award was won ...

It was announced at a press conference yesterday (March 4th) that idol super group AKB48 is now recruiting a new member. Nothing new in that. The difference is that the new girl will be over 30! For a limited time only (April 12th to August 31st), the new 30-plus girl will join the youthful ranks of Japan's largest money-spinning musical machine. Applications for the Otona AKB48 Auditions (Adult AKB48 Auditions) are now open and close on March 28th. Anyone can apply as long as they are over 30; you can be married or single, professional or a total amateur. So do you think we can ...

A police officer from Kagawa Prefecture has been arrested for using his smartphone to photograph up the skirt of a female, disguising the camera underneath a legging that he was wearing so as not to contaminate a crime scene. Mitsuru Higashiyama (35) was arrested in January and on February 28th it was announced that he was suspended for three months. He has also voluntarily resigned from his post. Higashiyama had apparently used the same contraption at four places between February 2013 and January this year on five separate women. "It was to satisfy my sexual appetites," he has ...

A researcher from University of Tsukuba has spent many valuable hours developing a way to make otaku dreams come true. This system has been developed officially for "hospital patients" and it basically allows you to "sleep next to" a virtual character. Scientists being the geeks they are, the explanatory images for the system naturally use Hatsune Miku as an example, as images doing the rounds on Japanese Twitter show. This actually the same as the Hatsune Miku app/eye-pad device we wrote about at the end of last year. Using the Oculus Rift headset for the head-mounted ...

Yesterday Tokyo Kinky went along to the opening day of Pink Tokyo, Japan's new adult expo at Differ Ariake on Tokyo Bay. Running until Sunday March 2nd, Pink Tokyo is a chance to interact with sex toy makers and see events with Japanese porn stars and idols. This is the first year it has been held and it was clearly a "test", since it was smaller than we expected. We still remember the Adult Treasure Expo AET at Makuhari Messe in 2007, which was bigger, with more booths and more interesting things happening around the "fair" part of the event. At Pink Tokyo there weren't any ...

Noriko Yabu is a 33-year-old artist who takes selfies. Nothing special in that. Except her surreal selfies are underwater, and she's naked. Her series of images are called Suisou, which could be read as "aquarium" or "cistern" but the characters she uses mean "water funeral". So is this a dead body in the water? Are we turning into necrophiliacs? We find these immensely subtle and erotic, or are we revealing something about ourselves? Does no one else share this fetish? There is a long tradition of water and sexuality in Japan. Nude scenes ...

We first heard about this cosplay dream at the end of last year. Bandai had worked with Peach John -- who know a thing or two about lingerie -- to create these fantastic Sailor Moon-themed underwear sets. And then they sold out in days. They promised a return and more stock. They re-launched last week and we spoke to our friends at KanojoToys.com about selling them globally. Then the Sailor Moon cosplay lingerie sold out again. In one day. In all colors. We think the high attention might have something to do with the fact that they got sexy model Rei Yasui to model the ...

The pizza delivery man is a staple motif of porn. But what about cute Japanese pizza delivery girls? Or even pizza delivered by two-dimensional idols? Love Live!, a collaboration between Dengeki G's Magazine and a record label, is an anime, manga, video game and series of music releases, set at the fictional Otonokizaka Academy, where a group of girls start up an idol band called μ's (pronounced "muse"). Since Valentine's Day until March 30th, the Pizza Hut Kanda branch has been operating as "Pizza Hut Otonokizaka" complete with Love Live! girls on the shutter, windows and even the ...
