Japanese Sex Toys Guide
What is an “onahole”?
An onahole means “masturbation hole”. It is a type of realistic masturbator toy, resembling a woman’s vagina. Onaholes come in all shapes and sizes. We hope you enjoy finding out more about them! There are two main designs: Onaholes with only one entrance and no “air release hole” at the back, or onaholes which are more like a sleeve with a hole on either end that you can penetrate completely. Most onaholes are the first type because you can create a stimulating vacuum effect around your member.
What is a meiki?
A meiki literally means “superb vessel”. It is a special kind of onahole. It does not refer to any particular design but a meiki is usually better quality than a basic onahole. There are also many “clone” meiki masturbators, which are modeled on the vaginas of famous Japanese pornography stars.
What is “cosplay”?
Cosplay means “costume play” and refers originally to the youth subculture of dressing up like certain characters from anime, as made famous in places like Harajuku.
Are Japanese sex toys smaller?
Many people worry about the size of Japanese sex toys. Sometimes they may be a little bit smaller than similar sex toys in America or Europe. However, being tight is of course often a good thing! Also, the length of an onahole is actually not as important for pleasure as the design of the inside hole. If you are concerned about size, please see the descriptions on our product pages.
Why are Japanese sex dolls made from silicone?
There are many kinds of Japanese sex dolls. The best quality ones are the fully silicone dolls, such as those created by Orient Industry. These are usually made from silicone, as opposed to latex, which is common elsewhere. Silicone is preferred by Japanese sex doll designers because it retains heat better, such as when taking a bath with your companion.
What is dakimakura?
A dakimakura is a “hug pillow”. They come in many different forms, such as the “love pillow”. It may be a decorative cover that you put over a regular pillow or they may be inflatable, and with holes in them to use with masturbators. Sometimes dakimakura are called a “Dutch wife”, though this name can also be used for other types of Japanese sex dolls.
What other types of Japanese sex dolls are there?
The varieties are almost endless! However, some major categories include blow-up or air dolls (kukiningyo) and plush or foam dolls.
What is Tenga?
Tenga is a pioneering brand of designer Japanese sex toys. It has created such amazing and groundbreaking products as the Flip Hole, Tenga Eggs, and Onacups.
What is shibari?
Shibari is the incredible art of Japanese rope bondage.
Why is Japanese pornography pixelated?
The Japanese introduced a law over a hundred years ago to try to copy an idea of western morals. The law is ambiguous but one interpretation of it means that genitals cannot be shown in public (this extends to mainstream cinema as well, though recently this has been relaxed). To conform with this rule, Japanese pornography pixelates the genitals of performers, though we never find this affects our viewing pleasure!
