These ladies look pretty hot, right?
Well, actually these are otoko no ko (男の娘), crossdressing males, photographed by Naoko Tachibana.
They feature nine crossdressers from the cafe and bar New Type, which opened in Akihabara in May 2009. Tachibana has put these together as a photo book, “Yuri Danshi“, 10,000 copies of which have been printed — that’s quite a demand!
We think you’ll agree that these ladies look lovely.
Otoko no ko culture — a mixture of cosplay and crossdressing — is huge in Japan, with its own magazines, shopping sites for clothes, bars and, of course, adult toys, from smell lotions to full-on shemale onaholes.
The word in Japanese is a play on “boy” (otoko no ko) but here the “ko” is written with the character for musume, which can mean “daughter” or “young girl”.
Just when you think you have everything sorted out about Japan, along comes a wacky kinky story to throw you off kilter again!
Police in Chiba have arrested a coast guard who had been walking down the street on August 6th dressed only in a woman’s wig and a red and purple bra.
Aside from some make-up, the rest of his body was completely exposed so we’re not even sure if this counts as cross-dressing. Surely his cock would have been an immediate giveaway!
Masahiko Ono (48) is said to be slightly tubby and not to have bothered attempting to shave his body hair. A lovely image! His coast guard colleagues were reportedly VERY surprised at his antics!
Japan frequently — hell, basically always — pushed the boundaries and definitions of what is expected and accepted.
We think of AKB48 and we think of cubby otaku geek men who can’t get a girlfriend, jacking off and then heading to the meet-and-greet scrums with the stars, the spunk still dripping from their hands. (Seriously, there are stories like this.)
For precisely these chaps there is the AKB Cross-Dresser’s Cosplay Costume set! With tartan skirt and coming in a practical “big” size, if you’re a man with these kinds of needs, look no further!
It just goes to prove, you shouldn’t judge till you know the full facts. Not every AKB fan is a loser geek. Some are transvestites, drag queens or cross-dressers or playing with definitions of gender. Saying that, it’s not the first time we’ve blogged about the idol group being associated with cross-dressing.
They are specifically designed to be “Japanese”, with the breasts a modest c-cup size and the vagina tight and Asian. What’s more, the “skin” color is a dark yellowish tone, imitating Japanese bodies.
I might even try Megumi wearing the vagina belt so that I get “double” penetration!
In Japan the “okama” (cross-dresser) is quite wide-spread in society. You don’t have to be wandering around Shinjuku’s famous Ni-chome gay district to see them, but will often even catch sight of a few among the Saturday crowds in Shibuya.
And we’ve noted before how transvestites are major celebrities on Japanese TV, such as the huge Matsuko Deluxe. There is also a full newhalf celebrity too called Haruna Ai who has won beauty contests.
If you’ve already got beyond the cross-dresser/transgender stage to the full shemale, then there’s always the Newhalf Otono no Ko? onahole too!
Here’s something we don’t often talk about on TokyoKinky — newhalf (nuhaafu) or transgenders!
“Otoko no Ko” (男の子) means “boy” but if written with a different kanji character (男の娘) it has a whole new meaning. It essentially is boys dressing up as girls but it’s a whole world of specialist bars, cafes, magazines, manga comics, online shops and more!
A mix between cosplay culture and full-on crossdressing and transgender lifestyle, it’s also men young and old. After all, Japan already has its fair share of soushoku danshi (herbivore men), the name given to metrosexual boys, so it’s really only a small jump to being an Otoko no ko.
Don’t forget there can also be futanari, which is used to describe girls with cocks! That can literally or could be a strap on. Taro likes it when I try this out! Us girls also know how to play around with gender.
Now there’s an onahole which replicates the sensation of sex with an Otoko no ko. It has luscious breasts and body, but also a large, erect cock. Yep, this has ambiguity written all over it! This is reflected even in the name, with its question mark: the Otoko no ko? Shemale Onahole.
It celebrates the androgynous gray areas in Japanese sexual subcultures and turns it into a very pleasurable masturbator. Taro was pumping away into it and he told me it feels just like the best kind of tight anal experience.
My only job now is to get him back to giving ME that attention, whether I’m dressed as a boy or a girl!
AKB48′s ever-lovely Atsuko Maeda is set to make a welcome return to our screens this July, playing the crossdressing lead character in a brand-new adaptation of Nakajo Hisaya’s popular manga series Hanazakari no Kimitachi e.
Originally adapted as a TV series back in 2007, “Hana Kimi” is the story of Mizuki Ashiya, a Japanese high-schooler living in the USA, who, having fallen in love with troubled young sports’ star Izumi Sano after seeing him on TV, moves to Japan and enrolls in his boys-only high school in order to get close to him. Fuji TV has announced that this will be a brand-new retelling of the story, distinct from the 2007 version, and major plot details are being kept under wraps for now. However, what we DO know is that AKB48 will not only be providing the show with its star, but its theme song too. The new tune will be released in August (possibly as the group’s 22nd official single) with the centre member and other participants to be decided in AKB48′s Senbatsu election, beginning June 9th.
The luscious Ms. Maeda is no stranger to working in front of a camera – in 2007 she scored her first movie role in Ashita no Watashi no Tsukurikata and she has previously appeared in several TV dramas, including Majisuka Gakuen and Q-10. This June she will also feature alongside fellow AKB48 member Minami Minegishi in the high school baseball team movie Moshidora.
Cropped hair and a boy’s school uniform might be a somewhat different look than the one that made us fall head-over-heels for Ms. Maeda in the first place, but no doubt the end result will see her looking as foxy as ever. Fingers crossed this’ll be but one of many screen performances to come from the 19-year-old starlet. And if the TV gig doesn’t work out, hey, there’s always AVs. Just saying.
Police in Shizuoka, central Japan, arrested a 57-year old company employee for sexual assault on 16th.
Kuniyasu Ishikawa apparently went to a recreation park in Fuji City last October and groped two local high school girls. He hugged them and kissed them — the usual kind of stuff, right?
So far, so what, huh? Well, Ishikawa was apparently wearing a girl’s sweater at the time and a “semi-long” female wig!
His killer chat-up line when approaching the girls?
I’m a tranny (newhalf).

So, a middle-aged bloke in girls’ clothes trying to kiss school girls at a rural theme park…Doesn’t get much more erotic than that!
Girls — you have been warned!
On a shopping trip in lovely Akihabara, Tokyo, we came across this wonderful bargain!
We found the panties and bras section, and amused ourselves imagining what cuties could be wearing these for us one day. There were the expected sexy ones…
But, more interestingly, this underwear set for men!
Would you fancy putting this on? We also like how the gentleman on the packaging appears to be wearing the bright pink lingerie over his suit! Now that would get people’s attention on the rush hour train!
