On a recent Abema TV show, Ogiya Hagino Busu Terebi, thirtysomething jukujo Sayaka Isoyama made an astonishing confession. Despite her popularity among men throughtout the nation, the charmingly curvy Japanese gravure idol and television tarento told the studio audience that her sexual experience was quite low. Blushing red, the 34-year-old admitted to having slept with less than five people. Her surprised co-guests on the show couldn't believe it. She then went further, explaining that she only has sex with people she dates properly and that she hasn't had so many ...

In 1940, the Empire of Japan was at war, but times were good at least at one school in the land. At the Ichinose National School (市之瀬国民学校) in Niigata, students and teachers stripped off to engage in the task of education au naturel. As documented in some extraordinary photographs, the classes were conducted with almost no clothes on. Female teachers were exempt, it seems, but not female students, who joined their male counterparts in wearing nothing above the waist for their classes. These pictures were originally published in the weekly magazine Asahi Graph, and shared ...

The Futomomo series of photography exhibitions has done much to normalize zettai ryouiki and thigh fetish. And photographer Yuria's project has proved so successful that it has led to six (and counting) photo books and now has even spawned a real-world spin-off. On October 6th, the World of Thighs Photography Cafe opened in Ebisu, Tokyo. Featuring the stunning and erotic photography of Yuria, visitors can now dine while surrounded by the thigh fetish images. The selection of photos is taken from a recent shoot in Guam. Sun, sea and legs -- what more could you want? The ...

Every fan of the top gravure idol Anna Konno is rejoicing in the streets today: The opulently chested, ravishlingly bodied veteran has finally gone a step further and dropped her clothes -- all in the name of her career. Konno wants to be taken seriously as an actress as well, and she has a role in the two-part film Ah, Wilderness. Rated R-15 and based on the Shuji Terayama novel about boxers, it stars Masaki Suda, Yang Ik-june, and the up-and-coming actress Akari Kinoshita. Anna Konno is shown lying on a sofa, her arms up to cover her generous naked bust but failing to conceal ...

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" ...

Just a couple of days ago we were remarking on the AV debut of yet another minor idol as well as how several AKB48-affiliated idols have tried to enhance their post-AKB prospects by amping up their sex appeal. We highlighted Aki Takajo, who released a semi-nude photo book, and Kana Kobayashi, who took things further in the clothes-shedding department, as well as Ami Tomite, who posed naked and also even did nude scenes for a film. Another fine example would be Natsumi Hirajima, who has proved keen to show off her shapely body. Mariya Nagao is another one. She has clearly positioned ...

To each his own, as the saying goes. And for a good reason: the pantheon of fetishes is wide and deep. If you like a hot girl who farts, then head on down to the Lefkada theater in Shinjuku, central Tokyo, later this month for a live show in which a trio of Japanese adult film performers will be breaking wind for the lucky audience. The show is organized by adult satellite broadcast Paradise TV, which also runs the annual adult telethon that features the charity breast-squeezing event. Reno Aihara (pictured), Miu Akemi and Meru Iroha are the three windy ladies in question. Seasoned ...

Whatever happens to all those legions of minor idols? Some get married and settle down. Some drift into prostitution, hosting, or something in between. Some just get regular jobs. Some try to reinvent themselves as sexier versions of their previous jobs, such as Aki Takajo and Ami Tomite, and Kana Kobayashi. Another recent example is former Kamen Rider actress Rin Asuka (not to be confused with AV idol Rin Asuka), who posed nude for some ravishing shots. A few go one step further and make a clean break into AV, as we have seen from several notable debuts by former members of AKB48 ...

Oh, Yuuri Morishita. She of the awesome butt and the penchant for showing it off in all its nude glory. She of the amazing "living mannequin" look. She who unfortunately took plastic surgery too far. A long-standing favorite of this blog (before the surgeon's knife turned her into a quasi-parody), We were saddened to hear that the 33-year-old gravure idol had gotten married in June with a regular guy not from the entertainment industry. Now comes the double whammy: she's pregnant and due to give birth in spring next year. Perhaps pregnancy will do wonders to her body, ...

Japan has taken its lactation fetish to new heights now with this new television commercial featuring a giant nipple that squirts milk from a cow UFO. Never mind that this is a promotion for a milk brand, Rakunoh Mother (what a name!). All we can think about it the huge nipple flying in the sky and kids running to get a taste. There really isn't much to say about the 30 seconds of this video, except remember to pick up your jaw after it has dropped. All right, party pooper: technically speaking, it's a teat, not a nipple, since cow udders are not human breasts. (However, we ...

Japan's prime minister Shinzo Abe has called another lower house election. During these times we always think of the more unusual politicos or wannabe lawmakers. For example, Mieko Tanaka is a former actress with at least one nude scene (and an adultery scandal) to her credit. Asuka Tachikawa did the opposite: posing semi-nude after she left politics. The earlier activities of some provocative candidates can overshadow their campaigns. Election candidate Rena Masuyama was known for her past lactation performance events as opposed to her policies. Mai Goto is another interesting ...

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 ...

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 ...

Panchira up-skirt fetish fans got a lot for their money at Tokyo Game Show 2017. The Gal Gun 2 booth had a vacuum device based on the Demon Sweeper, featured in the adult virtual reality game Gal Gun VR. This time, though, it was real and allowed you to see up the skirt of a girl! The organizers roped in some poor booth companions to show off the attraction, which blew wind vertically upwards to lift a skirt. The wind was blown up from under a grating over a raised platform on which the unfortunate young lady lady was standing. Inspired by the Demon Sweeper weapon in Gal Gun VR, members ...

Tomoko Nakajima was once a regular fixture on Japanese television screens. The former comedian and TV personality suffered a scandal in 2011, when she suddenly disappeared from the spotlight and, it then turned out, was several months in arrears for her expensive condo and locked in a legal dispute. Her troubles were rooted in the advice of a fortune-teller, who had been living with her since 2005 and seemed to have a strange influence over Nakajima. Many said she had been brainwashed. Her agency effectively sacked her in 2013 and her comedy duo, Othello, split up. She has been ...

When former SKE48 idol Momona Kito decided to change her professional name to Yua Mikami and switch careers to adult video, her fans rejoiced -- and even more so when she swiftly rose to be one of the biggest porn stars in Japan. You might think that rewarding them with hours of footage of her naked voluptuous body being fucked by countless guys was enough. No, the newly reborn and wildly successful Yua Mikami wants to give her fans even more. And you probably can't get a more personal service better than this. Her latest release from S1 No.1 Style ostensibly recruits 20 actual otaku ...

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 ...

Imagine you are riding the train home. You feel a little sleepy. Perhaps you drop off. This is common in Japan. Public transport is full of dozing passengers, young and old. You feel safe. But what you don't expect is for an old man next to you to unzip himself, reach into his groin, pluck or otherwise extract a pubic hair or two, and then casually flick his "gift" onto your head. It sounds too disgusting to be true, but sadly this is what happened. After performing his deed on the unsuspecting junior high school girl beside him, the man tried to pretend he was merely adjusting ...

Anan is the thinking man's soft-core porn mag. The weeklies like Playboy are fantastic in their way, but it's Anan -- ostensibly a magazine about fashion and lifestyle for women -- that continues to deliver some of the best shocks. Namely, this is persuading mainstream celebrities to strip off and pose for alluring photo shoots. While the women in question usually stop short of actual nudity, the results are as attention-grabbing as a "hair nude" full-frontal shoot in some cases. Previous examples of this trend include Yui Ichikawa, Nanao, Maomi Yuuki, Kazue Fukiishi, Ryoko Yonekura, ...

We all know there are various ways to get close to your favorite 2D characters from games, anime, light novels, manga and so on. The hug pillow, decorated with a character's face and body, is surely the most effective: you can hug it and, with the help of a certain toy in the right slot, even have penetrative sex with it. But for some people that's too much. They want a more romantic experience. And for that, there is this new tumbler with an anime character's face on the lid. Every time you take a sip, you are kissing the character on the lips. The liquid in the cup also comes out of ...

As Japan's population ages and there are ever more people over sixty, one of the challenges for the AV industry is how to adjust for a changing demographic. One of the results is the growth of porn aimed at seniors. Expect porn starring older men and jukujo to become a major proportion of the market in the near future. (A knock-on effect is also that more and more prostitution services are catering specifically to the older customer, and that a quarter of love hotel users are over 65.) Unlike many other places, the porn industry has not suffered the precipitous decline in DVD sales and ...

We are used to famous male celebrities committing adultery (step forward, Ken Watanabe, as a recent example), so why is it such a shock when the "guilty party" in question is female? Why did, say, Becky attract so much vitriol over her affair with a married musician? No doubt it was partly because her "pure" image was tarnished -- but it takes two to tango, you know. Japan is still a society dominated by men, from the corridors of power in the Diet to the corporate board rooms and even the halls of the Imperial Palace, where women are unable to inherit the throne. Yuki Saito is a ...

Back in April we wrote a post highlighting a few juicy stories of foreign musicians touring Japan and the amazing sexual antics they got up to with Japanese groupies. We stumbled over another episode of nefarious goings on in the land of the rising sun, this time courtesy of Rick Springfield. We talk about marrriage for the first time in a long while, but we still don't settle on a date. I leave for a three-week tour of Japan amid a rash of promises to commit and pledges to change. Japan has always had is own set of rules as far as we touring bands are concerned. It's really difficult ...

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: ...

We've written before about the growing speculation on the fate of Japanese convenience store's typically ample selection of adult magazines. With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics fast approaching, some have noted the possible demise or at least temporary concealment of this corner of liberty in a straitened society. Schemes are underway to make this a reality, though with mixed success. Chiba City attempted to carry out a test with convenience stores, asking them to cover up their porn mags with covers and see what happened to sales. Unfortunately the 12 brands of 7-Eleven that the city had ...
