We all love nude selfies. Regular readers will know how we have documented the wonders of the ladies in Japan who love to put their bodies out there for all the world to enjoy. But this may be coming to an end. The Asahi Shimbun reports that "nude selfies" are being targeted by "online perverts", so the Tokyo government is keen to criminalize them. Anyone who "requests" a nude selfie may be punished by a new regulation under consideration by Tokyo officials. In a bid to stop a perceived rise in teenagers sending such lewd self-portraits, the Tokyo metropolitan government ...

Another week and another survey brings grim news about sex in Japan. Following the news wire article a few days ago about 26.9% of idols being sexually harassed that has been making the rounds of various English-language publications, now comes another one about that perennial favorite: sexless Japan. Japan seems to be, if we believe the media, a sexless and barren land -- or a hyper-sexualised place of weird fetishes and mountains of porn. What is the truth? Both at the same time? Neither? Or something more nuanced in between? Needless to say, a blog like this hardly paints the best ...

Sometimes we see an adult product that seems almost too good to be true... if you are into that kind of thing. The 3D-scanned hand of a top Japanese porn star? Yes, those exist. A stocking for your penis? You're covered (excuse the pun). And lubricant in the style of a Japanese girl's breast milk? Of course it exists! The Young Japanese Mother Lactating Kaori's Breast Milk Lubricant comes in a package that any new mother or father here will recognise instantly as the standard pack in which breast milk is stored (and then frozen). It is labelled (in Japanese) with the ...

A Japanese newswire article about sexual harassment among aspiring models and idols is doing the rounds, confirming what we've been saying for years. Apparently, a government survey has shown that 26.9% of Japanese young female models and starlets have received "unwanted requests for sexually oriented photo shoots". This comes hot on the heels of last year's controversy about widespread coercion in the porn industry. In the first survey by the Cabinet Office on sexual abuse against young women, 7.7% of respondents had been offered contracts to become models or ...

Tokyo police arrested the female president and four others for operating an online chat room on FC2 Live. The operator, OK, had a pay-to-view chat room where women would masturbate or perform other sexual acts on camera for the pleasure of viewers. The charges are, perhaps not surprisingly, public indecency or obscenity. Based out of a condo in Roppongi, OK was led by Kaori Okada (30), who is alleged to have appeared in the online videos herself. We have made some screen grabs of such a video, though we cannot confirm if this is Okada masturbating in front of a webcam. She has amazing ...

We've had this post planned for a few months and finally we think we have enough examples to make it work. Last year we noticed something of a trend for popular models and actresses to show off their sporty bodies. Perhaps this is part of a push towards the Olympics in 2020? As we know, there are plenty of hot female athletes in Japan, from boxers to gymnasts, snowboarders, volleyball players, bodybuilders, para-athletes, and more. And then there are "idols" whose entire schtick is that they are sporty, like Ami Imamura and her powerful baseball swing. She can dominate us on the ...

We love to see old favorites coming back into our lives -- and we love to see women who aren't 22 being celebrated for their beauty and older sex appeal. And so we are delighted to see that Hiroko Sato is making a comeback, bush and all. The actress is best known for her early gravure career and nude scenes in such films as the low-budget A Night in Nude -- Salvation (2010) with Naoto Takenaka and directed by the veteran Takashi Ishii, who also made the soft-core porn films Flower and Snake with Aya Sugimoto, Sweet Whip with Yuki Mamiya, and Hello, My Dolly Girlfriend with Kokone ...

You may recall our glee when advance images appeared showing busty gravure model Moemi Katayama fully in the buff -- bush and all -- for her new photo book, Rashin. It's rare for a gravure model to make the switch to a hair nude shoot (okay, so she's wearing clothes but they are see-through, so this is basically full-frontal stuff) just as her career is starting to get going. Normally they wait until they are over 30 and things are not looking great for them, such as Haruna Yabuki did recently (though hair nudes were originally used by some stars to launch their careers). Or ...

A few weeks ago we got very excited over the new trailer for Sion Sono's pink film, Antiporno. As the trailer indicated, the bizarre-looking film stars a naked Ami Tomite who lives in a brightly colored apartment. Well, prepare to get even more excited as we have found some grabs of Tomite's nude scenes, or at least some of them. Beggars can't be choosers. It's more than enough to go on for now. We start with the shot of Tomite naked on a bed (featured tantalizingly in the trailer), sliding on her panties as she lifts up her butt. She is next seen naked dancing and stretching, ...

Some time ago we wrote about the 1990s scandal in which Ministry of Finance bureaucrats were arrested for receiving favors, including trips to shabu shabu restaurants where the female staff wore no panties. Such "no-pan kissa" (no-panties coffee shops or cafes) or restaurants peaked during the 1980s, especially in Osaka and Tokyo, and had many variations. Some had mirrored floors so diners could see up waitresses' skirts. Others may have offered "extras" not on the official menu. They might serve drinks or full meals -- but there was always a smile on the face of the clientele. In many ...

Back in June last year we blogged about "porn star karaoke" in Japan, where a karaoke system features AV stars who generously strip off naked as you sing. Now that's encouragement. Something similar has become a kind of minor talking point online recently. Once again, it's for Joysound (specifically, Joysound fR) and has Japanese porn stars. This time, if you sing well, you are "rewarded" with a mildly censored image of a nude AV idol both during the track and at the end. But if you stop singing, the footage switches to muscular men. If you're bisexual, it's a win-win. Otherwise, ...

Back in November last year, we wrote with some excitement about the awesome Play Pan Pan game. This panchira-themed game seemed almost too good to be true. In fact, we initially assumed it was a kind of parody. After all, this is a game about saving the world from evil panties. Far from it, we are very pleased to see that it's proved something of a viral hit and there are new trailers with voices below. The audio seems to be just Japanese (but this actually adds to the effect) but there are English subtitles. We think the previous version was a demo and there is now a full ...

Tenga isn't just for self-pleasure. It's also for healthcare. Tenga products now sold in over 40 countries worldwide. How far they have come in the ten years since they launched the Tenga Egg on us. But Tenga isn't resting on its laurels. In addition to starting lines for women and couples such as the Iroha vibrators, it has also started a healthcare business. Tenga Healthcare opened at the end of last November in Ota ward, Tokyo, as a new legal body aiming to provide sex education, healthcare and information services. Tenga products can be used to provide relief for people who ...

Are there still any famous ladies left in AKB48? That's a question we often ask ourselves these days. Well, yes and no. The big guns are basically gone but there are still popular idols. And they are determined to stay in the public eye with eye-catching photo shoots. Here are the idols of AKB48 like you've never seen them before: as wrestlers! Participants in the shoot were: Jurina Matsui, Sakura Miyawaki, Mion Mukaichi, Kaori Matsumura, Miru Shiroma, Haruka Shimada, Yui Yokoyama and Haruka Kodama. The shoot was actually a promo for Tofu Puroresu (Tofu Professional Wrestling), a new ...

Some people really don't care. All they want is for the whole world to enjoy their body. And this ultra-exhibitionist Japanese girl is one of them. Not only does she put nude pictures of herself online for everyone and anyone to view on Twitter, she even makes sure she shows her face so you can get a complete idea of who she is. And what a beauty she is. She has an awesome bust, that's for sure, but also nicely pointy nipples, too. Plus she's thankfully not afraid to show us her lovely bush (unless you would have preferred a lady who's fully shaved, that us) -- nor is she shy about ...

We have recently seen a lot of controversy in the porn industry in Japan over coercion after several prominent cases where women, including current stars, have come forward to allege they were forced to perform when they were originally scouted on different terms. It is one of the AV industry's dirty secrets that no one liked to talk about until last year. It has led to arrests and court cases as well as a wave of bad publicity in the mainstream media. And the latest "victim" of the controversy is not even a member of the industry! Now a lawyer who represented a production company ...

Of all the dozens of hot ladies showing off the cars at the annual Tokyo Auto Salon this year, this one particular "companion" (as they are somewhat euphemistically known) has apparently generated the most amount of viral juices... and it's not hard to see why. Not only does she have a revealing bust and slinky waist, but she is also showing off her pink panties. In case you are wondering, the lovely lady is cosplayer Komitsujo. There's never been a better reason to like cars or cosplay! Of course, the attendees to the Tokyo Auto Salon go there for ...

As we prepare for the joys that await the adult world thanks to virtual reality, you can currently get a taster of the kind of things we might see a lot more of soon. Friday, the weekly tabloid published by Kodansha, has got together with former gravure model and now top porn star Shoko Takahashi (Shoko Takasaki) to produce three "virtual reality" scenes featuring the busty lady in the nude. The 3D scenes are viewable in three dimensions: view them here, here and here. Use your cursor to move around and find Shoko waiting to entertain you. We assume this promotion is only available ...

Since leaving AKB48, Ami Tomite has been on a mission to change her mission. She has posed nude for a ravishing shoot and now she appears in this "pink film" (sexploitation). It's part of another attempt to revive the genre that was massive in the 1960s. This time they have enlisted some of the top names in Japanese cinema to make a new series of Roman Porno sexploitation films with relatively high budgets (originally pink films had micro budgets). Judging by the trailer for Antiporno, it looks very surreal indeed. Expect at least some nudity from Tomite if not much sex per ...

The adult industry in Japan is giddy right now about the possibilities for virtual reality. We have already seen lots of events and ideas emerge, though no major releases yet. The potential for sex toys and dolls combined with virtual reality headsets is obvious and not actually so new. But what about smell fetish? As we know, this is huge in Japan, from smell bottles to used panties and more. Well, this side of the industry is not getting ignored by the adult VR boom. A tech startup called VAQSO is currently developing an adult virtual reality system that uses an accessory device ...

We all love interacting with our favorite idols on social media. Following their feeds is a way to feel closer to their lives; it tricks us into thinking that we actually "know" them or could actually meet them one day. After all, the whole original selling point of AKB48 -- other than the vast number of idols in the various levels of the group -- was that these were idols you could meet at "handshaking events" and vote for by at "elections". And so we get to see the drinks idols ordered at a cafe, or their latest meal or lovely view they are enjoying somewhere. The selfie has become ...

We spotted this nice article over on Global Voices about the "strangest" love hotel names in Japan. It compiles the results of a survey ranking the most unusual names for love hotels. As we know there are some strange-looking love hotels (both inside, with themed rooms, and outside, with gaudy castle exteriors), especially in the countryside. But now we know the strangest name. And it's Banana & Donut. Indeed, this is not a diner or cafe, but a love hotel in Saga Prefecture, southern Japan. Like similar establishments outside of Japan's big cities, Banana & Donut is located ...

Here's something that may restore your faith in Japanese TV. Tokumei Kakaricho Tadano Hitoshi is a TV series based on the manga by Kimio Yanagisawa. It has already been adapted into a TV drama once before but now a new version is streaming on AbemaTV, an online streaming channel. It is the channel's first original series. Japanese TV is famously weird, but in terms of nudity is pretty modest and prim. But satellite TV and online TV is not so restricted and can show nudity and sex scenes, not to mention strange shows where porn stars jerk off men on camera or telethons where men line up ...

Arashi's Jun Matsumoto has been dating the actress Mao Inoue, if the rumors are to be believed, but their agencies prevent the stars -- who are not getting any younger and perhaps about to pass their peak -- from making their relationship public, yet alone marrying. So what to make of these latest tabloid allegations? Matsumoto is now apparently cheating on Mao with another woman. And she's a porn star. Yes, it seems that being a member of Arashi is a ticket to date and (supposedly) live with a popular actress while also having fun with a member of the adult industry. At the end of ...

Japanese condom advertising is often much more inventive than regular commercials, which typically rely on using ubiquitous celebrities rather than any imagination. Contraception, on the other hand, employs everything from dinosaur sex to horror movies. We stumbled upon this Durex condom commercial, which is actually from May 2015. Some people online were saying it was themed around the Kama Sutra (with some added wrestling spice) and had been "banned". It's pretty awesome. First off, it's not "banned" but available for all the world to see. The official Durex upload on ...
