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 ...

Nyotaimori is one of those urban myth sex fantasies that only seems to happen in movies or manga. It's not even certain whether it has any real historical basis, though this hasn't stopped foreign movies and TV presenting it as a fundamental example of Japanese kinkiness. Of course, there are places where you can try eating sushi or sashimi off a naked woman's body. It has become a rather cheesy ritual that sometimes happens at certain parties, though the aptly named Nyotaimori Tokyo offers a "fashionable" dispatch service where they send a naked female food plate to your ...

Some generous soul has unearthed a copy of an old Japanese sex guide for youngsters. And what a find it is. The first thing to note about The Young Person’s Guide to Sex is the hairy armpit on the cover. Different times, different attitudes, folks. Dating back to the 1960s, young people could read this handy guide to learn such important things as how to hold hands with your partner. Apparently such activities as shining your man's shoe or combing your lady's hair were also part of the courtship ritual back then. And then there was the nose-touching and ...

We've just discovered @toto_sh1, who is a "self-proclaimed photographer". Well, plenty of those about. But he or she has created this awesome series of an otaku taking his blow-up lover on a date to Asakusa, and we can't resist sharing. They first set off for their adventure by riding the subway together. The other passengers seem unperturbed. They do all the usual tourist stuff like posing at the Kaminarimon gate and take a ricksha together. They have someone draw their caricature and enjoy an ice cream. But it all ends in tragedy in the ...

The opening of Japan's first major public exhibition of shunga erotic prints is quite a landmark event. We finally got to go recently. We went on a Saturday and the line to get in stretched out of the venue. They were there in their hordes: men, women, couples, foreign tourists (European, American and Asian). Lining up, some were excited, some seemed curious -- while others appeared intellectual and austere. Inside, however, everything changed. All the faces displayed the same awe and amazement; couples exchanged looks and words ("Wow, so big"). Couples gripped each other just that ...

Here are some nice shots of the booth babes (known as "companions" in Japanese -- if only they truly were) at the recent Tokyo Game Show. Clearly these girls are hired for their considerable assets. 【TGS2015おっぱいコンパニオンさんシリーズNo.02】アンビションブースですが、ちょwwwおっぱいメガネとか最高ってレベルじゃねぇぞwwwww #TGS2015 pic.twitter.com/ekTAsvHs4n — もえーしょんタントゥー (@tantou_KAI) September 17, ...

Following the previous report on the March porn shoot at an abandoned rural school, KAI-YOU has published a second behind-the-scenes photo report. As far as we can tell (the article is written in the usual ambiguous way that certain Japanese publications like to use), this seems to be the same film ("100 People x Nakadashi") by the label Honnaka. We're not sure why there has been a second article, other than it seems to be a promo for the film as part of AV Open 2015. At any rate, this was "round two" shot on another day, featuring new "rules" in the games. The film starred 7 ...

Is this the most amazing love hotel ever? All right, that's a pretty bold claim. After all, there are some pretty incredible love hotels out there, from dungeons to swimming pools, and almost every kind of theme or style you could imagine in between. But the Keibajo US in Niigata has got us excited. Shared by @rutile_TiO on Twitter, here are some pictures from the hotel's fantastic rooms and suites. There's a wooden classroom, a samurai sword-themed tacky "Oriental" room, a factory room, a hospital ward room (complete with two hospital beds), and ...

One day in March, several hundred people descended on an abandoned school deep in the Japanese countryside. But these weren't ordinary people. They were the hard-working folk who produce Japan's mountains of pornography. "100 People x Nakadashi" was not set for release until September but that didn't mean the schedule wasn't tight. With so many people involved, careful planning and efficiency on the day was paramount. As with all things, the Japanese approached this with superb organization. We weren't there -- but KAI-YOU was and these are their nice pictures. Like a lot ...

People are saying that gyaru are a dying breed. The fashion subculture is disappearing, with the magazines closing and the brands changing. Certainly we don't see as much gyaru porn as we used to, which is a shame. Rumika, where are you?! Kai-You recently paid a visit to the Ganguro Cafe, which is a space dedicated to the "black gals" with super tans. Of course, it's in Shibuya, the gyaru and kuro-gyaru mecca. This cafe-bar is bucking the trend. It was opened by new ganguro gal unit Black Diamond in January this year and is determined to promote gyaru culture, in ...

Take three male virgins. Put them in a room with three top Japanese porn stars. And you have the best group date ever. That's just what Soft on Demand did a little while ago. The virgins initially wore masks to protect their identities from the camera, though one of the participants was apparently 55 years old so consigned himself just to donning shades. The three lovely ladies were: Mana Sakura (21 years old), Iori Kogawa (22 years old), and China Matsuoka (20 years old). What would you talk about if you had a dinner date with these three ...

After witnessing the femdom butt-kicking action of idol Hitomi Nogata, we return to highlight some ladies from Niconico Chokaigi 2015. The event is kind of a tech and otaku bonanza, organized by Niconico, a video streaming platform. This year's event was held over two days on April 25th-26th and was the biggest yet. Visitors numbered over 150,000! This being Japan, naturally that included a lot of cute cosplayers... There were also some colorful (or should that be scary?) male cosplayers. Images via ...

Regular readers will remember our trip to the Fetish Festival (Feti-Fes) in Tokyo. Then we encountered all manner of fun and not-so-fun fetishes. One of the best was the idol kick. For a small fee, you could pay to get your butt kicked by a scantily clad idol. This is obviously a variation on femdom, the fetish for being dominated by a strong female. Whether it be with actual bondage or by a harsh, rapid handjob, some guys get off on being treated badly by a hot chick. In Japan, girls who are "cold" are called tsundere and this is similar. Or remember that TV show that had hot ...

Tenga has a habit of turning up in unusual places. From the garbage on a beach to a Buddhist temple, a business card holder, and even once in the home of comedian Tomonori Jinnai when accidentally shown on a TV show. Back in 2012 some people stumbled upon this Tenga Egg vending machine in Nakano Broadway, west Tokyo. It's a gacha-gacha capsule vending machine, which makes sense for the Tenga Egg. You get a single Tenga Egg for ¥500 and if you are lucky enough to get a ticket in your capsule, you can take it inside to the shop to claim a porn DVD. We don't think this is ...

Fetish Festival (Feti-Fes) was held in Tokyo on Sunday January 25th at an inconspicuous venue near Harajuku. There were 96 booths, including cosplayers, idols, bondage artists, and more, spread out over six seriously packed floors, plus a basement showing the "Underground Fetish Film Festival" screenings. Feti-Fes was first held in January 2013, since then it has been held eight times around Japan. This festival -- the fifth in Tokyo -- was the biggest so far and there seemed to be hundreds of visitors by our estimate. Due to legal reasons, there was no nudity allowed in the ...
