The Virgin Killer Sweater, or virgin-killing sweater, lept to viral fame after the busty gravure idol Jun Amaki wore it and shared the stunning results on Instagram. The original item quickly became a sold-out success and plenty of imitators appeared on the markets in Japan and China. Since then, the excitement of the meme has naturally died down somewhat, notwithstanding the occasional case of the sweater being spotted in public in Tokyo and the inevitable groin-stirring spectacle this causes. (We'd like to see her try wearing that during the morning rush hour!) So it is with amusement ...

One of Japan's top porn stars today, Mana Sakura, has had her fully naked body recreated as a large figure. The first in a projected series of figures called Sexy Idol, Mana Sakura has given her approval to the awesome figure, which comes in three sizes (25cm, 30cm, 35cm) costing between ¥200,000 and ¥300,000. Now how's that for beating your fellow otaku's figure collection? Sadly, there's no hole included so this can't officially be used as a mini sex doll... but there are surely other ways to enjoy it! Ordinarily we would immediately point readers in the direction ...

Any self-respecting fan or consumer of Japanese adult video will know how important shame is: shame (ryoujoku, ryojoku) fetish porn is huge. In the pantheon of Japanese porn, women are humiliated in all number of inventive ways, from being made to pee themselves (omorashi) to having their bodies turned into "public toilets" for anyone to use. A common theme is the use of writing on the naked body, where women are "tagged" with graffiti insulting them or labeling them as sluts. If this turns you or your partner on, there are ways to recreate the experience, such as the "shame stockings" ...

No one needs any convincing that Japanese schoolgirls are awesome, especially their uniforms. That's why there is such a mountain of toys, dolls, and costumes out there. But what about schoolboys? No, we don't mean like that -- though there are some toys in that direction, such as the provocative Boy's Penis Smell Bottle. We'll leave the world of shotacon for another day. The Gakuran Swimsuit Japanese Schoolboy Coat Design is a item of female swimwear brilliantly inspired by a classic part of the Japanese male school uniform. The gakuran is a Prussian-style coat worn by many young ...

It's not often that we get excited about a Japanese-made vibrator. Sure, it goes without saying that Japan produces some of the best luxury sex dolls, blow-up dolls, sex machines and masturbator toys the world has to offer. But it's not famous for its vibrators and much of what is on the market is relatively familiar to anyone who has perused an adult shop overseas. Tenga has been on something of a mission to change that in recent times, creating an impressive line of Iroha female and Vi-Bo couple-play vibrators. One of the things Japanese adult toys do best, though, is parody: ...

If the long-running and immensely popular Bandai and Peach John Sailor Moon lingerie was not sexy enough for you, take a gander at these new Street Fighter cosplay underwear costumes! The limited-edition underwear is on sale from the online retailer SuperGroupies, which specializes in apparel with a gaming and anime theme, from August 28th. Don't get too excited just yet, though. It's reservations only for now: the lingerie isn't actually available until January next year! Reservations are taken up till September 18th and we predict this will immediately sell ...

Japan, the land that prizes the wonders of soine -- or snuggling up. So much so, in fact, that they had "cuddle cafes" in Akihabara and there are, somewhat inevitably, pillows and cushions made in the shape of girl's laps. (If this sounds sexist, keep in mind there are cuddle services for women, too.) There has been a crackdown on cuddle and snuggle joints of late, it seems, since they were seen as fronts for so-called JK businesses and JK reflexology places. In other words, they were employing underaged girls and possibly offering more than just snuggles. But don't worry: now you can ...

Well, here is an new addition to our mental list of crazy yet amazing Japanese sex toys. After all, how can you say no to a sweet corn cob dildo?! Yes, the Sweet Corn Cock Dildo is as awesome as it name makes it sound. Japanese dildos certainly come in all shapes and sizes, and there are plenty of arguably pointless gimmicks out there (a kendama dildo, anyone?). From uncircumcised phimosis dildos to ones with cute character faces on them, there really is something for everyone, if you care to look hard enough. But rarely does visual flair combine with functionality quite so ...

We all loved stripped and exploring the bodies of Barbie dolls when we were young, but how about a doll that size or thereabouts that you can actually have sex with? Mini sex dolls -- sex dolls the size of Volks Dollfie dolls or even smaller -- have long enjoyed a cult reputation online. You can find all kinds of videos of people who have customized small dolls so that they can be penetrated. When the Dollho came along, it was like the answer to people's dreams. Not surprisingly, the doll set sold like crazy. There have been others, not least the fantastic Libidoll and a great series of ...

It's no secret how wildly popular the gravure model Miyako Akane is, so much so that she seems to be inspiring her own mini fetish sub-genres. She has a big following, not least because she rewards her fans with such things as making her porn debut (under the name Ema Yumekawa), wearing insanely sexy swimwear, and sparking a new street fashion trend for extreme body painting. In the past she has also posed nude and in a zentai body suit. But what if your obsession with the angelic-faced, big-chested model was more than just her body? What if you wanted her to be, well, missing ...

Now that's what we call a retirement. When Rin Sakuragi announced she was leaving her career in adult video at the age of 28, she (and her managers) decided to do so with a bang. In the time since we've seen not one but three sex toys dedicated to the goddess. Fans can sample the Rin Sakuragi AV Retirement Special Clone Onahole, a regular masturbator toy from Nippori Gift based on AV idol's pussy. Then there's the Geki-fera Vacuum Rin Sakuragi Blowjob Onahole, an awesome entry in the bestselling series of oral sex masturbator toys. And if that's still not enough, ...

It didn't take long for virtual reality to discover a potentially lucrative niche: Japanese panchira fetish. This penchant for up-skirt views is a big thing in Japan, unfolding in AV, video games, books, photography, umbrella, and, of course, real-life crimes and incidents. Trains and escalators are particularly notorious places for panchira fetishists to linger. One of the most bizarre was the case of the man who lay in a Kobe storm drain for hours, looking up under the skirts of girls who walked by. This was something of an addiction -- he was a serial offender! Well, now you can ...

As if the Flip Zero, Tenga's awesome update of the pioneering Flip Hole released last year, wasn't enough, the Apple of the Japanese adult industry has come up with a way to improve its bestselling toy. The Tenga Flip Zero Electronic Vibration, which is out in August, is a designer vibrating masturbation toy. Like with the original Flip Zero, there is an exterior pressure pad along the body to enhance the vacuum sensation. It also still splits open so you can really clean and then dry it out fully -- since Tenga knows how important good maintenance is for pleasure. What's special about ...

The Chichikan Nipple Penetration Breast Milk Fetish Set is when lactation and paizuri penetration fantasies overlap and go, well, a bit overboard. This is a set of the Chichikan Nipple Penetration Onahole, which is one of those unusual penetration toys we sometimes see (pee hole, navel, ear, etc). It literally allows you to experience penetrating a breast, which is certainly one step further than regular paizuri. It's made by A-one and has an awesome box design by erotic illustrator Ohigetan. But that's not all. The set also contains Kanojo Toys' exclusive ...

Sweat. Sea. Sun. Sand. There's a world of scents out there on the beaches of Japan, not to mention very carefully waxed bikini lines (but more often than not, very flat chests). Summer beaches are the haven of slutty girls, who head in groups to the sand to meet guys and have fun. Dead or Alive Xtreme is a bestselling quasi-adult video game (ie, not quite a pornographic eroge) series where players lust over busty characters playing beach volleyball in very skimpy bikinis. And now the makers, Koei Tecmo, have taken a step into the burgeoning adult virtual reality market by integrating ...

We have a confession to make. Like a lot of young boys, we used to be a bit geeky. In particular, we loved models. It probably started with building models of F14s and the like, before progressing on to the more hardcore delights of collecting and painting whole armies in the sprawling Games Workshop universes. And then somehow, we went beyond it and started doing more "grownup" stuff. But we got a very large and very welcome burst of nostalgia when we spotted these two masturbator toys based on aircraft and battleship models. The Blue Frame Uminari Battleship Masturbator and Blue ...

It's not a big subgenre but it's certainly alive and kicking, and waiting for you if you are so inclined: shotacon adult toys. Indeed, we doubt many regular readers of this blog are shocked to learn that shotacon (fetish about young boys -- well, let's say "young men" to stay legally acceptable, though it's a blurry line) is not just manifested in manga and anime. One of the more "notorious" of these was the Boy's Anus Otoko no Ko Smell Bottle, which is unique as its name suggests. Sadly, that wonder from Tama Toys is sadly sold out but now you can get the next best thing The Boy's ...

Tenga is doing so well that it can afford to send hot girls to a customer's homes. While that might sound like it defeats the whole purpose of a masturbation aid -- even ones as stylishly designed as Tenga -- be assured, Tenga has not branched out into prostitution and the ladies will only "dance" for customers. Japan's Apple of the adult industry is running this Go Go Tengirls Cool Tenga campaign to promote its summer-themed range of onacups, eggs, lubricants and other toys. The brand is asking people to tweet something with the campaign phrase and link in order to apply to take ...

We all know that switching hands can change the experience of a handjob, and that's the same for when a partner is providing the pleasure, too. The New Office Lady Double Handjob Masturbator riffs near-perfectly on this fantasy. Imagine a newbie Japanese OL in the company, laying you down on a desk and slowly jerking you off as she switches from hand to hand. The onahole has two cupped fists with different inside holes: one is a full air hole release type that you can slide right the way through, while the other has a vacuum sensation with a shorter hole. You can also rub your hands ...

Tenga has never been satisfied just with making amazing adult toys. As its past endeavors with advertising contests, nightclub events and art exhibitions show, it is always keen to break out of the mold of "just" designer masturbation. Its latest project is a special figurine made in collaboration with the manga artist Man Gataro, whose pen name is a pun on manko, or pussy (in Japanese, a star symbol is used between the hiragana for "man" and the kanji for "ga" in the same playful way that symbols like #$@&%* are used to mask expletives in English). The unique-looking 11cm figurine, ...

The Back Spirit Male Body Onahole is a Japanese masturbator toy with an anal-type hole paired with perfectly toned muscular abs and a cute pair of balls. If you're wondering where the cock is, then use yours! As Kanojo Toys say, "after lubing up and pushing your member inside, you'll feel the super strong squeeze of the Back Spirit's sphincter. As the walls entangle your cock from all sides, rotate and twist the toy for even more stimulation. Now that certainly makes a welcome change from the usual and ubiquitous stretchy onahole toy design. Over the years we've ...

Who says the Japanese don't have a sense of humor? In fact, it often mixes very curiously with their sense of sexuality, too. Parody is a very healthy element to the adult industry and many toys reef of various aspects of pop or subculture, including anime, well-known consumer products, and more. Our recent favorites include the Kimi no Ana Your Name Kimi no Na wa Parody Onahole and DanMachi Hestia Strangle Hole. Now we have spotted this new one: the Japan Sex Tourism Kumamoto Onahole. It stops short of actually parodying Kumamon, the wildly popular Kumamoto ...

Pregnancy porn is big in Japan: we've blogged before the glory that is pregnancy and lactating fetish AV. Of course, there are lots of accompanying adult toys, from themed onaholes to breast milk lubes. Here's another one -- and it has a unique design. The Pregnant Fairy Maid Onahole might initially seem like more of the same: a masturbator with a cute body with the sexy pregnant curve that slender Japanese girls have. But there is so much more to enjoy. Penetrate this fairy and your cock will push against her stomach from the inside, like it is going to burst out from inside ...

Yesterday we wrote about a Japanese photographer who has turned his private house into a sex doll museum -- and opened it up to the public. Now here are three developments related to Japan's top sex doll brand, Orient Industry. Orient Industry has released a 40th-anniversary book looking at the history of their sex dolls (also known as love dolls) and how they are made. You can order it from Kanojo Toys, though be aware that the text is only in Japanese. The Kishin Shinoyama photography exhibition we previewed in April has now started at the Shibuya art space Atsuko Barouh Arts Drinks ...

You asked and the Shinto gods of eros delivered! Back in March, like many others we were dazzled by the sight of I-cup gravure idol Jun Amaki modeling what swiftly became known as the "virgin killer sweater". This revealing gray outfit is backless and is so skimpy that a virgin is likely to die on the spot after seeing a girl in it. Well, that might not be medically sound but the results are amazing. The Virgin Killer Sweater is a genuine product but the viral storm ignited by Jun Amaki soon made it unavailable to all but a few lucky early birds. The good news is that it is back ...
