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 That game was criticized as "creepy" and ended up being withdrawn from the Tokyo Game Show.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 ...

Ever wanted to know what happens inside a gyaru brothel? Well, the best way is to pay one a visit in person. Failing that, there's always Japanese cable television. The idol Yui Takano, formerly of NMB48, recently took part in a Japanese cable television show that looked at the service customers enjoy at a gyaru sex club. The particular service shown involves two heavily tattooed, bronze-skinned Japanese punk hotties rubbing their bodies all over a naked male patron, before giving him a handjob and, presumably, a blowjob (sadly not shown). Yui Takano watches this "threesome course" ...

Ever wanted to attend a swinger club in Japan? Tokyo has a vibrant underground scene of happening bars. As regular readers probably know from experience, "happening bars" (or couple kissa) are clubs where you can go and switch partners with other couples, or if you are single just pick random strangers to have sex with. (Theoretically there is a distinction: a happening bar is for couples of singletons, while a couple kissa caters to couples and perhaps single women.) Sometimes they are foreigner-friendly, too, but it's rare. It always helps to speak at least some ...

Virtual dating has long been a big part of the adult industry or quasi-adult industry in Japan. What with all the reports of sexless Japan and "parasite singles" still living with their parents well into their thirties, you might almost be forgiven for thinking that "virtual boyfriends" apps and digital idols were responsible for the downfall of the nation. There were more examples at Tokyo Game Show 2016 that will surely not do much for Japan's reputation in this regard. The show featured an array of otome romance apps for ladies to find that Prince Charming in 2D form. One ...

We continue our reports about Tokyo Game Show 2016. We are a little late on these reports but we were too busy to post. TGS always walks that fine line between the exciting big releases of the gaming industry and veering off into creepy (but to us, intriguing) world of virtual dating and sex. Here is certainly one example. Virtual reality was the big theme at the show, as expected, though it wasn't all mainstream uses of the technology. As we know, the adult implications for VR are huge and a major thing in the industry in Japan, too. The developers M2 Co. Ltd have created ...

Back in August we reported on the return of the "Futomomo" photography exhibition series, featuring thigh fetish images by yuria. Themed exclusively around Japanese girls' thighs, after an exhibition in 2015 the new show in the series is now open in Shibuya. It has highlights from the successful "World of Thighs" exhibition also held in Shibuya in April and May 2016, which was visited by 15,000 people. Visitors were allowed to take pictures (but not to touch -- that's something of a joke) and here are some of the results. The entrance alone has to be seen to be believed. Inside, you ...

More future sex was on display over the weekend at Adult VR Expo 2016. Following the Adult VR Festa at Akihabara that was so popular the venue had to shut down, the same organizers put together this new event on August 27th at a secret location open only to invited members of the press. Adult toys makers SSI Japan displayed its RealBody + Bone System, which is a superior torso sex doll and VR headset combo. At the nula booth, Onasis was a system of onacups that were hooked up to computer playing porn. The user taps the tops of the "bottles" to create vibrations ...

The name's Bond. David Bond. Pick-up artist extraordinaire and nampa tutor David Bond is up to his usual tricks, as he demonstrates in this new video showcasing his latest exploits across Asia. Bond previously caused a furore among netizens. Watch as he takes in Japan, Thailand, South Korea, and more -- all in his quest for Asian pussy. This followed an even bigger online controversy over the imminent arrival of Julien Blanc, who is known for forcing girls into his crotch. Much of this was spearheaded on Twitter by angry foreign residents in Japan such as Jake Adelstein, ...

Adult virtual reality has been one of the major stories of the year, from Japan's first adult VR event in Akihabara to a virtual omorashi system that allows you to experience wetting yourself. Even the recent Comiket was not safe from the influence of adult virtual reality. First seen at the Akihabara event, the VR sexroid Nanai -- a blow-up doll that you can have sex with as an anime girl in virtual reality -- was showcased on Sunday to the curious public, fresh from enjoying the hordes of slender and sexy cosplayers outside in the blazing heat. (We're not really sure if Nanai ...

Over the weekend, Comiket 90 was held under the scorching sun. Cue the ravishing display of sweaty and semi-naked bodies of young, nubile cosplayers, plus a whole host of lenses to snap away at these tempting ladies... While there were no reports of insane fishnet stocking sunburn like last year, here are some of the highlights from the event. Due to work on the Tokyo Olympic venues, part of the Odaiba location was shut off so some of the outdoor area where the cosplayers usually gather to pose was shut off. We really hope that the preparations for that boondoggle in 2020 don't ...

The overseas media's favorite bondage artist, Kinoko Hajime, continues his comeback. After being arrested and his Ueno club shut down in 2014, Kinoko Hajime is now back for good. So much so that he can work with major fashion brands. To celebrate the opening of the new Christian Dada store in Minami-Aoyama, Kinoko Hajime was invited to put on a unique shibari rope bondage performance inside the shop. The ravishingly beautiful model in the show was Machiko. The photos, cast in crimson, really do justice to her classical looks. With its bold red ...

What happens when you use a Japanese massager vibrator with Pokemon Go? It's a simple question, yet an essential one. So essential someone had to find out. The "massager" in question is the Daito Thrive Handy Massager, which is similar to the Hitachi Massager. As we know, this is the massager that started a revolution in Japanese adult toys and porn: it soon acquired a second usage as a vibrator and became a staple of adult video, leading to a slew of massager vibe imitators. Today, "massager" is a practically euphemism for "vibrator". According to the makers on Rocket News 24, ...

Tokyo Kinky was there on Sunday, loyally lining up in Akihabara for what had been touted as Japan's first ever adult virtual reality event. But all was in vain. We had our suspicions about the event, given how shoddy the event's website was. Still, word had obvious got out -- that and how virtual reality is one of the big trends of the year and there had been promises of its adult implications for years. There were hundreds of people trying to make it into a tiny venue in Akiba. We were all lining up patiently outside but the police eventually had to come and help control the size of ...

This cute Japanese office lady decided to prank her colleague... or otherwise satisfy her own kinky desires. She made an ordinary Japanese onigiri (rice roll) with her hands. But that was just the first one. No, she wanted to give her onigiri something extra for her second attempt. She decided to mold it with her armpit. To be fair to the fastidious folks out there now screwing up their faces in disgust, she did wipe her sweaty armpit first so as to avoid any serious hygiene issues. She then squashed the unsuspecting ball of rice under her arm. The sticky rice, though, ...

As we know, Japanese porn star Mana Sakura is really popular now -- so much so Tenga hires her to do its promotion. She's also super hot, too hot for universities, it seems. How would like to have the Mana's used panties? Because she doesn't mind giving them away. That's what happened at e-sports SQUARE in Akihabara at a World of Tanks gaming tournament. Live on stage, Mana slipped off and then gave her used panties as a consolation prize to the runners-up. Man, we thought that would be good enough for first place! It has in the past been common ...

Fetish Festival (Feti-Fes) was held on January 31st at a venue in Harajuku and what a serendipitous collection of fetishes it was! We loved the one we attended last year. This January we couldn't go in person but watched from afar via the festival's official social media channels, from where we have pouched these shots. Everything from rope bondage and steampunk to almost-not-there bikini idols, crotch shots, masks, blood and horror, nurses, eyepatches, facesitting, and everything in between. The festival remains one of the most accessible ways to experience the sheer range of ...

Only the other day we blogged about Tenga's awesome Year of the Monkey design onacup. Well, Tenga actually closed their special year of celebrations for their tenth anniversary by opening a new store in downtown Osaka in December. It's their first dedicated outlet in Japan and occupies a prominent site in Namba (our old stomping ground). To promote the store, Tenga invited porn star Mana Sakura to join them for the opening. Mana is fast becoming Tenga's go-to girl for advertising. Here she is cutting the ribbon and then posing with Koichi Matsumoto, the ...

Japanese love hotels come in all shapes and sizes. There are all manner of crazily themed hotels out there, enough to fill more than one coffee-table book. A recent one we looked at is Keibajo US in Niigata, with its classrooms, hospital ward rooms, and more, plus there is this great "vintage Japan" hotel in our old stomping ground of Osaka. Here is another great example of the sheer inventiveness and skill of love hotels to appeal to our fantasies. Again, as we know from the history of love hotels, like with most of the really outrageously designed hotels, it is not in a ...

It doesn't matter how cold it is. When there's an opportunity for cosplay, the young girls in Shibuya don't miss out. And so Christmas 2015 was a fun one in Tokyo, with plenty of cute ladies skimpily dressed up in red and white costumes on the streets of Japan's capital. Christmas in Japan is defined by the biggest date night of the year on Christmas Eve (just try getting a love hotel room!) and then consuming strawberry cake and fried chicken on December 25th itself. The Christian holiday has also gradually become a festival of dressing up and hanging around the city looking ...

Playboy has made a video offering a "rare glimpse" into what they call a "vintage love hotel". Well, Hotel Fukui in the Kyobashi district of Osaka, a business district with a bevy of love hotels behind the station, is actually more like a themed love hotel than a vintage one (initially we were expecting something more like the Hotel Okura). True "vintage" love hotels, as we know, are fairly basic affairs, with nice amenities but a straightforward decor. The gaudy or wacky themes came more recently in the 1970s. Popular Japanese consensus says that by the 2020 Summer Games in ...

Dakimakura Kisai is a "festival" for hug pillow fans to celebrate their beloved anime character-decorated cushions while moshing their hearts out to rock music. For the fourth event, the festival was held at Shinjuku Antiknock, a gig venue, on December 6th. Unfortunately we couldn't be there in person but reliable subculture online magazine KAI-YOU was, so here are some pictures to give you some idea of what this unique event is like. Essentially this is a concert event for the band milktub, which is led by vocalist bamboo -- a colorful performer also known for making ...
