We in Japan are no strangers to the irresistible allure of hot girls in maid outfits, with meido kissas continuing to grow in popularity year-in-year-out, countless manga and romance novels focusing on maid-and-master trysts and the almost-obligatory appearance of every AV idol ever in a maid-themed movie or ten. Perfectly straddling the border between endearing innocence and smouldering sexuality, I don’t think I’m alone in thinking maids (quite rightly) occupy one of the top spots in most every guy’s list of perfect fantasy girls.
Apparently folks in the West aren’t oblivious to the phenomenon either, as illustrated by a new article at AskMen.com entitled ‘Why Men Love Maids’. Using recent scandals involving ex-Governator Arnold Schwarzennegger and French politician/economist Dominique Strauss-Kahn and their respective dalliances with hired-help as a jumping-off point, the piece goes on to examine just what it is about maids that gets us all hot and bothered. ‘That dynamic breeds attraction,” comments Louise Rafkin, author of ‘Other People’s Dirt: A Housekeeper’s Adventures from Cape Cod to Kyoto’. ‘As the maid, you’re …walking into someone’s intimate personal little world, but you’re in your work world, and your job is to be polite, and you have to suck up to the boss… I can imagine being vulnerable, being seen at his possibly worst — that could be erotically appealing to a celebrity, because he feels that whoever sees him that way knows the real him. Like the outside world doesn’t know him, but the maid does.’
The article asserts that a feeling of dominance is one of the driving factors behind the appeal of maids: ‘The maid is a servant, so there’s this whole thing of being in charge of somebody else and being able to tell them what to do,” states sexual commentator (That’s a real job? Sweet.) David Steinberg. Rafkin meanwhile goes on to say ‘It’s also about men wanting to look at women on their knees. Men want to know that women are there to clean up after them. You only have to look at porn to figure that out.’ The critical tone carries over to the article’s commentary on the maid phenomenon as it exists in Japan: ‘[E]stablishments like Tokyo’s Cure Maid Cafe feature hot young waitresses dressed in kitschy “French maid” costumes who treat diners like masters and mistresses, sometimes offering massages and even kneeling tableside to stir cream and sugar into drinks. Fueled by sexy-maid-themed manga and anime, the trend is now taking off across Asia.’
With its ever-so-slightly preachy tone, the article misses one of the key reasons maid (and indeed any) costumes appeal to us: escapism. Cosplay, sexy or otherwise, is, after all, about role-playing – becoming somebody else and playing a different role in life, however briefly. After all, what’s more fun than losing yourself inside your own private fantasy world? (Oh, yeah! Losing yourself inside a sexy costumed Japanese girl while you’re at it. I know how I’m spending my weekend.) However, it does at least concede that the power dynamic that fuels a maid-master relationship and lends it such intoxicating appeal is far from one-sided: ‘As a maid, you get to see their secrets. You know things. You witness things… So, in a way, your bosses are beholden to you. You have power over them. The ‘poor maid’ thing is not the real story.’
Interesting food for thought from which you can draw your own conclusions. In the meantime, I know I’ll be continuing to enjoy the sights at my local maid café just as much as always – and should YOU ever feel the need to do more than just look, don’t pull an Arnie and try to ruin it for the rest of us! Head over to the ever-reliable Kanojo Toys for all your maid-related needs.
Our friends at Kanojo Toys have launched their first sex toys demonstration videos on youtube (KanojoToysDotCom) more than 3 years ago with some reaching unique video views of more than 700,000 viewers.
Last year they started with the first Japanese AV idol (Yuri, also featured on hardcore sites such as Interracial Japan and Japan Bondage TV) doing some product demonstrations in her maid outfit and this year they have started engaging a few more models to bring you free, sexy and fun product commercials.
Check them out HERE.
Another youtube account (KanojoFromTokyo1) for hand-on reports has been launched recently, and will feature sexy JAV idols enjoying the play with sex toys handed to them. Content is still on the low side but we heard that it will be regularly updated from now. Check it out HERE.

Adidas announced their new model “Originals” in true Akihabara style last week with maids.
Katou Natsuki appeared first on stage in a blue maid outfit holding the new model in her hand and greeted all the otaku (geeks) in their very own language, “Sorry for making you wait master(s). Natsuki da nyan!” Nyan is the sound a cat makes. When maids take the stage, the otaku watch. When the maids add a meow at the end of their sentence, the otaku “stand” at attention.
Natsuki, who has previously admitted to being a bit of a cosplayer, broke character after her grand entrance and admitted to everyone how embarassed she was. “I even practiced last night in the bath!” The otaku found this more stimulating that the line itself and pushed for the embarassed Katou to say it again.
Flashbulbs continually went off as Katou explained to the audience how to properly wear Adidas in a fashionable way showing the real reason the audience was there, to see maids on stage and creepily take as many pictures as possibly from a safe distance as only we otaku know how to do. Katou then riled up the audience even more telling them about her ideal man and the fact that he doesn’t have to wear a costume, she just wants him to watch as she struts her stuff. Oh yeah, and there were shoes…
Maids tickle your fancy? I never understood the fascination until I had one fully dressed standing in front of me in a love hotel. I guess that’s a story for a different time. In the meanwhile, check out the sexy maid outfits over at Kanojo Toys and make a few fun stories of your own. Stories means have maid sex.
First there was the Beautiful Girls Clock app for cellphones across Japan, then there was the Panty Lovers clock for the more perverse of us. In 2011, Taiwan has struck first in the Asian Battle for the Boobies with it’s Daily Bunny Forecast.
Nexttv.com has started to offer this new daily weather service for those of us who need our daily bunny fix. With a different girl every day of the week there’s no reason not to go check the videos, even if the weather forecast is only temperature for major cities in Taiwan and the USA.
As somewhat of an added bonus, if you go and check out the weather on Sunday, you can see the videos for all the girls from the whole week. Aren’t you glad you can take another look at Irene bumping the temperatures off the side of the screen with her tight, young…weather reporting skills.
Some of you may or may not have heard of a fun little cell phone app called Bijin Tokei (Beautiful Girl Clock). The premise is simple. Two different girls from different locations in Japan every minute of every day. Why check the regular clock on your phone when you can get ladies along with the time.
Since the inception of the first Bijin Tokei, many spin-offs have been made, including the ability to search for beautiful ladies showing the time in their favorite Japanese city. Just last month, the newest version of this little sexy lady lock took the stakes up a notch. Introducing the Panty Lover’s Watch. As with it’s predecessors, it shows attractive girls giving the time, but in this version, you get to see the sexy lady’s panties as a bonus to knowing if you’re going to miss your morning meeting or not.
Upset that you can’t get your up to the minute panty updates? Not to worry. You can just go ahead and check the time here on the Panty Lover’s Watch website. I never knew how much I wanted to know what time it was right now!
For those truly hardcore panty lovers out there, why don’t you pick up some sexy panties over at Kanojo Toys for those moments when you’re checking the time, but a picture just isn’t enough!
JUST LAUNCHED – JAPANESE AND GAIJIN IN ACTION
As we rapidly approach Halloween, I thought I’d like to highlight some of the Japanese costumes that I’ve seen around the interwebs.
Mind you these lovely ladies don’t need a holiday to dress up. Here’s a little sample in honor of Halloween for this year round past time for so many gorgeous geeks. Some of which are actually what you’d call Cosplay Queens. They appear at cosplay conventions as celebrities and are constantly doing photoshoots that they put on their personal websites or group websites like CosRain.Com
If you really think about it these girls are practically perfect. They are hot and Japanese, which you can tell by the pictures. But these sexy ladies are not the sexy ladies you see out on the street, they are bonified otaku who might be willing to dress up as your favorite character at a whim. Can you imagine? Heading to Akihabara now…
We paid a visit recently to the small but friendly bondage gear studio Tennosuke in north Tokyo. Why is Tennosuke not more famous abroad? It’s become legendary in the Japanese S&M scene!
Megumi has written before about the leather toys this great studio produces. They have cock collars, ankle cuffs, bondage costumes…all the works!
However, the owners told us they have since created a whole heap of brand quality new toys, including spanking pads, bondage cuffs, whips and more!
As you can see, the quality of the leather goods speaks for themselves. These toys could almost be for sale in a luxury fashion brand shop or something!
We particularly like how they give a ratings system (up to five points) for their whips so you know how hard or soft they are. Perfect for folks like me who like bondage but are not very experienced.
I definitely shouldn’t be playing around with this cat o’ nine tails-style “Hard 9″ whip then — it has nine lashes and a top five-out-of-five rating! Ouch!
Tennosuke is a small and unique studio whose leather toys are almost impossible to get overseas. Our friends at KanojoToys, though, told us they have a growing range of the gear, available exclusively online.
We all like to cosplay, right? Especially when it involves having sex.
Oh, yes! Combine two of the best things about Japan with mock-historical costumes!
For all those guys and girls who dream about rollicking on the tatami and unwrapping your Yoshiwara courtesan to the sounds of shamisen, get your hands on this nagajuban set.
Nagajuban is the name for a kimono undergarment, worn by men and women, under the regular kimono — or sometimes just by itself. I guess it depends on how long you want to delay the inevitable!
It’s strange, isn’t it? When I think of historical France or England, all I can think about is the dirt, the bad breath, the cold…But when it comes to olden days Japan I get a stirring in my groin, fantasizing about romps on futon, chopsticks used as dildos and Shinto gods looking down smilingly as samurai give their geisha a good bonk!

We all had a bad time at school. There were classroom bullies, strict teachers, skin issues…but there was always one saving grace — cute, nubile schoolgirls to gaze at all day long!
Well, those folks at Kanojo Toys know all about those nostalgic lustings and had found the perfect solution.
The keen adult goods fans among you will no doubt already be aware of the excellent Manzoku series. Manzoku means “total satisfaction”, and that’s what you feel after you’ve finished a session with a Manzoku toy. Now those clever Japanese creators have made a range of air dolls that will get schoolgirl fetishists salivating. The Manzoku Gakuen (“Total Satisfaction School”) is as good a reason we have ever seen to go back to your studies and get some homework done.
First up is Sao Yamashita and Yuna Yamamoto, two rather lovely air dolls that can be positioned into very useful postures indeed. Their faces have this rather alarmed look — well, they are virgins after all!
Whilst thinking about this great new series I also found an old favorite — this Japanese schoolgirl costume. The perfect accessory for the Manzoku ladies!
What is it about school girls that really gets us? Is it the skirt? The youthful skin? Or the fact that in all likelihood you are going to be plucking this one’s cherry for the first time…! All right, enough theorizing, let’s get lusting!
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 wearing it. Fun, no?
Japanese cosplayers are suckers for maids, but we also understand that they are NOT about sex but about being cute and playful. However, we’re purely about sex here, so the Heartful Maid takes our recommendation in that category simply for its short skirt and cut-out top.
Well, now it’s hard to pick more favorites, simply because there are so many and they’re all so damn cute.
Check out KanojoToys’s Cosplay / Bondage section for all of the above costumes and more.
