Condoms in Japan are an underused breed, judging by the rampant venereal disease and unplanned pregnancies. As such, condom brands try all kinds of wacky campaigns to get young men and women interested in using their products. This also includes free giveaways. Earlier this year, Tenga gave away complimentary condoms to newly enfranchised voters at the House of Councillors election. You might be forgiven for thinking that otaku are the demographic with the least need for contraception in their lives, but you would be wrong. That is, if Comiket is to be believed. A booth at the ...

Adult virtual reality has been one of the major stories of the year, from Japan's first adult VR event in Akihabara to a virtual omorashi system that allows you to experience wetting yourself. Even the recent Comiket was not safe from the influence of adult virtual reality. First seen at the Akihabara event, the VR sexroid Nanai -- a blow-up doll that you can have sex with as an anime girl in virtual reality -- was showcased on Sunday to the curious public, fresh from enjoying the hordes of slender and sexy cosplayers outside in the blazing heat. (We're not really sure if Nanai ...

Over the weekend, Comiket 90 was held under the scorching sun. Cue the ravishing display of sweaty and semi-naked bodies of young, nubile cosplayers, plus a whole host of lenses to snap away at these tempting ladies... While there were no reports of insane fishnet stocking sunburn like last year, here are some of the highlights from the event. Due to work on the Tokyo Olympic venues, part of the Odaiba location was shut off so some of the outdoor area where the cosplayers usually gather to pose was shut off. We really hope that the preparations for that boondoggle in 2020 don't ...

Kotaku has shared a story about what may be the "longest hug pillow in the world". The dakimakura in question features human-snake lady Miia from the anime and manga Monster Musume, which is an ultimate masochist fantasy. Of course, the hug pillow cover matches Miia's long, slivery body with its length, which could strength down between floors! 7 meters (22.96 feet) of hug pillow glory! It was popular with fans, selling out (it was only made in a single batch, surely?) when it went on display at the recent Comiket in Tokyo, priced ¥100,000 ...

Being a cosplayer can be painful. But some ladies view looking cute and sexy as more important than their health. At the recent Comiket 88 (August 14-16th), one cute cosplayer wore fishnet stockings and drew a lot of attention for her leggy charms. Ayane Maro was doing cosplay of Misa Amane from Death Note. However, there was a serious side-effect to wearing fishnet stockings on such a hot day. あやねちゃんの足がヤバイ (@aru_nico ) pic.twitter.com/AYK5OWut4h— ゆっkey@コミケお疲れ様でした。 (@snowfairy8) August 15, ...

Comiket 87 kicked off over the weekend at Odaiba. Once again Tokyo Big Sight comes alive for three days from December 28th for Japan's biggest cosplay and comics event. Unfortunately we couldn't be there in person but plenty of others were. Here are some pictures from the reliable folk at KAI-YOU, featuring lots of cute booth babes and "companions", whose job is to pose for pictures and try to promote games to the visitors. Did they do a good job? Well, they certainly look nice in these ...

August (and December) means only one thing if you're a dojinshi or cosplay otaku in Japan: Comiket. And so it was that Comiket 86 kicked off on Friday for a three-day bonanza of cosplay, otaku and clicking cameras. The internet has become replete with the shocking and scintillating pictures from the visitors, mostly taken outside the Odaiba venue as people, including professional cosplay models, posed and frolicked under the humid sun. Here are some selections from the hot and sweaty images to be found on the Japanese web right now. Warning: contains extreme geekdom! First of all, ...

Japan is, of course, famous for being the home of cosplay. If you can't be in Japan for this month's Comiket, you can always bring some of it into your bedroom. Since I started blogging about a year ago, we got lots and lots of requests to talk about the costumes in the KanojoToys online store. So, of course, we had to oblige! While there are a lot of sexy choices above, my personal favorite is the Sweet American Cafe Girl, just because its image rarely seen in Japan because of the big focus on maids, but I like to think of an American girl at a cafe serving cheeseburgers while ...
