Here's a story that likely won't do any favors for the reputations of either gaijin or Asian women. We stumbled upon the tale of the American Mixed Martial Arts fighter Jaymes Schulte, who allegedly made secret videos of his one-night stands with many Asian women. Apparently he then uploaded his sex tapes to a now-defunct Pornhub channel called TravelPorn where he charged viewers $10 for uncensored videos or $250 for a lifetime membership. He accumulated 3,000 subscribers and 800,000 views. The Mixed Martial Arts lightweight fighter (nicknamed "Underdog") in his early thirties says ...

Ever wondered what it's like to do a nude photo shoot? We all love the results but how are those sensual images created? What's the process? How many people are involved? And how much do models earn? Well, the truth is a little more banal than you might expect. Often there aren't even any real locations, just a studio and a minimal crew -- and a model willing to drop their towel for a few hours. A Japanese TV show recently went behind the scenes at a nude photo shoot. Here are some ...

No sooner than we have posted one article about a Japanese man exposed as a serial molester of women on trains near Tokyo, then along comes another case. A video has appeared online allegedly showing a foreign man in the act of molesting a Japanese woman from behind while riding a train in central Tokyo. The unidentified foreign male, who seem to be in his forties or fifties, is shown seemingly pushing himself up against the buttocks of the woman on a relatively crowded JR Yamanote train. If we understand the context right, the person shooting the video apparently had already ...

Japan has been experiencing something of a "suppin" boom of late, where it has become popular for women to wear no makeup -- or at least, to present a more natural look, as if they have not put on any makeup. Celebrities like Nozomi Sasaki have also shared images of themselves in "suppin" to demonstrate how amazing they look without the need for cosmetics. Paradoxically this has now led to women using cosmetic products to create the "suppin" look. The suppin boom has spread to such an extent that "suppin cafes" have started to pop up in Japan. Basically these are like maid cafes or girls' ...

Tokyo Weekender recently published a photo report from a visit to the Orient Industry showroom and an interview with the CEO, Hideo Tsuchiya. As regular and loyal readers will know, Orient Industry is the leading sex doll manufacturer in Japan and whose luxury silicone companions are stunning. Some love doll owners have rented out apartments for them, take them on dates, and develop an intimacy with the life-size figures that goes beyond simply the sexual surrogacy that genital parts made from soft elastomer allow. Tokyo Weekender then spoke directly with Tsuchiya, who is now in his ...

Some guys are not afraid to get their hands dirty -- or, we should say, their face, lips, and tongue. And this includes Japanese guys: they don't mind giving head. At least, the rapper KOHH doesn't mind going down on his girlfriend, though perhaps that's not surprising, given that he's dating the Japanese fashion model Ayana Miyamoto. We know this because a sex tape has leaked showing KOHH licking the pussy of the 26-year-old Miyamoto as she films the action she's getting with a phone. Unfortunately for the couple, the short sex tape was accidentally uploaded to the model's ...

The controversial ERO24TV telathon "boob aid" (Oppai Bokin) event took place on December 3rd. Famously it gives regular members of the public the chance to grope porn stars' breasts for a few seconds, with all proceeds going to AIDS-related charitable causes. Here's a preview of what happens. Note how the patrons have to sterilize their hands before they can lay them on the holy vessels of the AV idols' chests. The "boob aid" event has not been without its critics, so much so that it attracted a petition to ban it last year. Thankfully it was not successful and the event is ...

Halloween in Japan is much more than just trick or treating. It means dressing up skimpy costumes and cosplay outfits, and hanging out in places like Shibuya for hours on October 31st as well as the weekends leading up to Halloween. The popularity of the movement has developed a lot in the past few years, with thousands now descending on Scramble Crossing every year. This makes for a visual feast in terms of costumes, and the best ones often have little to do with a traditional Halloween as we know it in the United States, and more to do with Japanese pop culture, trends, in-jokes, and ...

Girls just wanna have fun -- and have fun alone if needs be. It's well known that love hotels are sometimes used in lieu of regular accommodation when other hotels are booked up or because the cost is basically the same. There has been a recent spike, for example, among foreign tourists using them (sometimes by accident) as well as businessmen. Does that mean a woman could stay overnight at a love hotel alone? In theory, yes. But would they want to? One Japanese woman recently set out to investigate the merits of such a scenario. She was much more prepared than most: she ...

We stumbled upon this interview with a customer to a happening bar. Happening bars are the quasi-secret society of Japanese swinger clubs. The establishments force customers to become "members" and carry an entrance fee, which is often quite hefty for men. There is typically a bar and showers. Sometimes they are called a couple kissa, or couple coffee shop, and may cater primarily to couples rather than single men or women. They can take the form of a bar with various private rooms or may be more like a hotel, where guests switch from room to room as the preference takes them. Police ...

There are more than a few bars and hostess clubs where you can have your drinks poured for you by AV actresses. There is also a new bar in Kabukicho by Weekly Playboy, where patrons are served by famous gravure idols. But until now there hasn't been a bar directly operated by an AV production company. In March, that all changed when a well-known AV maker opened a small girls' bar in Kabukicho. For the uninitiated, a girls' bar is a kind of cheap hostess club, where there is a modest cover charge and the drinks are a bit more expensive than usual. Nikkan Spa recently paid a visit to ...

Shocking. Fluorescent. Gaudy. Loud. Vular. Neon. Flashy. Tacky. There's a lot of epithets that can be applied to this new cosplay style that is like body art on psychedelic drugs, though none of them quite capture it. Inspired by strange characters from anime, cinema and video games, behold the new Japanese subculture of ishoku-hada. Certain sections of the Interweb are currently abuzz with breathless talk of this bizarre body painting and cosplay niche, which literally means "unique skin" or "unusual skin". Like an "alien" version of gyaru, ganguro or yamanba trends, women dress ...

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 ...

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, ...

Photographer and love doll super fan Yoshitaka Hyodo has converted his private house into a personal hihokan-style sex museum. Located in Yashio City on the border between Saitama and Tokyo, Hyodo has even opened up his house to the public for Golden Week. If you want to visit, it is open from April 30th to May 5th. Reservations are required, though, so check his blog for more details. Admission is ¥1,000, but apparently free for people with sex dolls. Photography is allowed for non-commercial purposes. This is the fourth time he has opened up his collection ...

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, ...

A naked video of gravure idol Yuriko Ishihara has leaked online. The POV hamedori-style footage shows the busty model nude, fingering herself, and being groped by a lucky guy. Who uploaded it is unknown, but it spells the end of her career. In some of the shots her face is partially covered by a surgical mask, though this is frequently removed. It is clearly her. The 34-minute video, ahem, climaxes in her jerking the guy off (for most of the time under a plastic sheet for some bizarre reason -- hygiene?). Strangely, the whole tryst seems to happen in a ...

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 ...

We all like a no-strings attached kind of arrangement. So where to find Japanese ladies keen on this? We just spotted this amusing photo report on a visit to a dating telephone club, or terekura, which were once commonly located in city neighborhoods as places where men could go to ring up women for dates. These days terekura have been more or less replaced by deai cafes and online alternatives, where you can be introduced to ladies willing to do the business with you -- for some compensation, natch. The blogger went to a terekura in Kabukicho, one which I'm sure many of our ...

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 ...

To round off the year with a bang, Tenga has generously given us a Christmas gift par excellence! The Tenga Moova is the latest toy from the Apple of the Japanese adult industry. It looks amazing, feels even better -- and is even designed with maintenance fully in mind. Coming in two colors (Silky White or Rocky Black), the Tenga Moova is a masturbation aid billed as a "flexible spinning hole". Tenga fans will be quick to spot that it looks like the cousin to the sculpturally designed Tenga 3D. The beautiful, almost science-fiction toy offers pleasure through its lattice ...

At the Japan Adult Expo 2016 on November 10th-11th, around 4,000 people attended, including many Japanese AV fans from other parts of Asia. Held for the third time, the event features 200 AV makers and studios, and offers a great opportunity for fans to get close to their adult idols. At the booth for Aroma Kikaku, which specializes in fetishes, Hibiki Otsuki was there to welcome fans. KMP had the likes of Ayaka Tomoda and friends were on hand to pose for pictures. Echoing the biggest adult trend of the year, Total Media Agency (TMA) -- despite the name, it's ...

Forget the PlayStation VR, you can get even better virtual reality girlfriend experiences from adult game makers like Illusion. Their VR Kanojo is a new Japanese eroge or dating game for Windows, Oculus Rift CV1 and HTC Vive, and it's currently making waves with netizens who have tried it. The game places you in a bedroom with a nubile Japanese schoolgirl, which immediately recalls the controversial 2014 Project Morpheus demo, Summer Lesson. That game was criticized as "creepy" and ended up being withdrawn from the Tokyo Game Show. Illusion has no such qualms, it seems. It's going on ...

This year, in addition to crazy numbers of people in cosplay on the streets, Shibuya also hosted trash cans that spoke to you in porn stars' voices when you filled them up with your garbage. And that wasn't the only porn-themed attraction in Shibuya over the Halloween weekend. Regular viewers of Japanese AV will be familiar with the "magic mirror truck" series that features a vehicle installed with a one-way glass wall. It travels around the city, looking out at unsuspecting citizens on the streets while all manner of sexual antics take place inside. Porn industry giant Soft on ...

Does it get any more tasty than this? Japanese girls may not be the most well-endowed ladies in the world, but that doesn't mean local men don't like breasts and nipples. Far from it, they love them so much they make photo books about male nipples. And so it is without much surprise that we learn of Choconip, a white chocolate set that shows the eight stages of developing breast nipples. In other words, the chocolates replicate the newly formed breasts of a teenaged girl and follow the maturity sequence through to womanhood. Hmm... this might be a tad ...
