They say that half the Japanese web is cats and the other half is food. That's false: a third is cats, a third is food and the last third is various shades of porn and adult content. So when you combine these elements, you get a recipe for a hit online or offline. For example, nyotaimori or the "condom cookbook" we featured back in 2014. Now along comes "Painyan", a new 96-page photo book by Yuki Aoyama released on May 31st. Regular readers will recall that Aoyama is the photographer with something of an obsession with schoolgirls. This time Aoyama has turned his lens away from ...

The legendary erotic photographer Kishin Shinoyama's latest project is a series of portraits of luxury Japanese sex dolls. The "Love Doll x Shinoyama Kishin" exhibition will run at the Shibuya art space Atsuko Barouh Arts Drinks Talk from April 29th until May 14th. Shinoyama is best known for his full-frontal "hair nude" shoots, including Rie Miyazawa's iconic one in the early 1990s. He also recently released a nude photo book with Haruna Yabuki (Mari Abe). As we know, high-grade silicone Japanese sex dolls by the likes of Orient Industry are famous the world over and ...

She's finally done it. Miyako Akane has answered our prayers by making the next logical step in her career and becoming a porn star this spring. Miyako Akane is a gravure idol and chakuero idol -- i.e., a busty idol who keeps her clothes on but barely (as opposed to AV idols, who do fully nude photo shoots all the time). After wowing the nation with her amazing H-cup bust in what may be the most incredible and revealing swimsuit in Japan as well as 360-degree virtual reality softcore porn, things must have been drying up for Miyako Akane... or she just wanted to take her career to the ...

Kei Jonishi of the Osaka-based AKB48 spin-off idol group NMB48 has released a new semi-nude photo book, "21K". The soon-to-be 22-year-old idol from Shiga is one of the most popular members of NMB48, alongside Sayaka Yamamoto and Miru Shiroma. "21K" is her second photo book. Released in February, it is set to propel Jonishi to further stardom. (That being said, at the moment the buzz is actually mostly about Nogizaka46's Mai Shiraishi and her photo book, "Passport".) The photos include images of the serenely white and thin Jonishi standing with her chest exposed and her modesty covered ...

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 ...

Here is an awesome, belated Christmas present for you folks: nude photos of Moemi Katayama that have leaked ahead of the official release of her new photo book out next year. The 26-year-old Katayama has become increasingly better known over the past 1-2 years. She released her first photo book in September and the new one, "Rashin", comes out on January 5th. Since 2015 she has been a favorite gravure idol for weekly tabloid magazine shoots, and even appeared in a Kirin ad in May. This, though, is by far the most explicit the busty G-cup gravure idol has ...

When so many idols and models are releasing their own new photo book every month, how do you stand out? Well, the producers of the new Ai Okawa photo book came up with a novel marketing strategy that will certainly take some beating. It meant you could experience undressing the alluring fashion model with a "bra strap" attached to the reverse of her latest photo book. It allows the enthusiastic male reader to unclip the bra from Ai Okawa's naked back. And when your Ai Okawa fantasies run dry (as if), you can even use the bra wrapping to practice your girl-undressing ...

More images have emerged from Minami Minegishi's new photo book. There was some initial buzz about it last month over a preview "hand bra" picture that appeared. Now some other images have appeared and they show Minami Minegishi at her slinky best. "Watashi wa Watashi" (I am Me) is shot by famed nude photographer Meisa Fujishiro. It went on release on July 12th but so far hasn't been selling well. In fact, the major AKB48 photo book releases from Rino Sashihara and Haruna Kojima sold much better. Now that Haruna Kojima will graduate AKB, the last ...

The "hair nude" is a curious Japanese-English phrase. It refers not just to naked flesh; it's naked flesh with genital hair. What is "shocking" here is the display of pubic hair, the line by which art and entertainment is usually fettered in Japan. It is fine to have plenty of nudity in films and publications, but to avoid the century-old ambiguous obscenity laws, people censored or did not show actual pubic hair. The hair nude set out to deliberately show this was something to be challenged, legally and artistically. While the likes of Nobuyoshi Araki had already made erotic ...

We got pretty excited when news broke in May that model Haruna Yabuki was releasing a hair nude photo book by Kishin Shinoyama. Now that the collection -- called simply "Haruna" -- has hit the shelves, we are pleased that some scans are making the rounds online. More will surely emerge over the weeks -- and hopefully better quality ones, too. For now, enjoy Haruna's lush thirty-something body. If she seems too good to be true, remember that her celebrity boyfriend wasn't satisfied and two-timed her with a hostess. She literally found him in bed ...

Yuki Aoyama and his Schoolgirl Complex series has fast become the pseudo-artistic erotic photography phenomenon of the 2010s. If you have a thing for waif-like, slender angels, then Aoyama's work is for you. Well, School Complex 4 has come out and this time the theme is schoolgirls "flipping" each other's skirts -- a theme also explored in calendars, of course. As Kenny Everett said: All in the best possible taste! To celebrate, there is an exhibition at Yukai Hands Gallery, in the Waseda area, from July 22nd to July 31st. We love how a section of the ...

Ahead of the release in July of her new photo book, a preview image of Minami Minegishi has come out showing the slinky idol doing the classic semi-nude "hand bra" (tebura) pose. While pretty tame considering what some AKB48 graduates get up to, this kind of photo shoot has become something of a rite of passage for AKB48 idols. Haruna Kojima did it, covering her gorgeous pale flesh with her tiny hands. Likewise, Atsuko Maeda has done a tebura and so did Yuko Oshima in a Mika Ninagawa shoot. Most notoriously, Tomomi Kasai's tebura was so controversial it led Kodansha to cancel ...

We've always been a fan of the older idols. We find the photo shoots sexier and the woman more alluring. From Chiharu Komatsu to Naomi Kawashima and Azumi Kawashima, our glory days are the 1990s and early 2000s, especially when the so-called "hair nude" shoots were still at their peak. Kanako Kojima is one such beauty. Born in 1975, her career height was from around 1997 for a few years as an actress and tarento. Towards the end -- in 2006 -- she released a great hair nude photo book. She also showed off her naked pregnant body. These days she is in her forties and out of the ...

Like big boobs? Check. Like things being wrapped around big boobs? Check. Yes, this photo book by Yuji Susaki may have it all. Wrap the Boobs is a new photo book about Japanese girls with giant breasts (not quite bakunyu but getting there) and how wrapping their perfect jugs in things can heighten the visual feast. The photographer is previously known for his work with cosplayers like idol group Dempagumi.inc.. Models in the new photo book -- out now from Ichijinsha -- include Hikaru Aoyama, Mizuki Katase, Jun Amaki (formerly of the masked idol group Kamen Joshi), and the ...

The alluring gravure idol and actress Haruna Yabuki (formerly known as Mari Abe) has gone fully nude in a "hair nude" shoot for Golden Week in a weekly tabloid magazine, shot by the famed photographer Kishin Shinoyama. Though she has done semi-nude shoots before, this is a new step for the 1984-born Yabuki, who has officially now become a jukujo like Manami Hashimoto or Mitsu Dan. The truth is, Yabuki's career is at a bit of an ebb. She broke up with her idiot celebrity boyfriend after she caught him in bed with a hostess. It's been years since she was releasing photobooks and gracing ...

Japanese sportswomen are hot. Really hot. Whether it's volleyball players or bodybuilders, snowboarders, boxers or baseball players, these ladies have brawn and agility -- and would be powerhouses of energy in the sack. Joining this list is Risa Izumi. She once represented Japan in gymnastics for the Athens Olympics but her career has taken a different turn now. Today she is a nude model with a recent photo book release... and what a body she has. Like Yuki Eda has done before her, Risa Izumi fully shows off her slim and trim form with these naked poses. As you can see from the ...

One of the gravure idols gaining more and more mainstream exposure for reasons that should be obvious, Hitomi Yasueda is known for having a great ass and having an armor fetish. So we are all really happy that she has now shown off her voluptuous butt to the full in her latest photo book, "Hitomi Shiri" (Hitomi's Butt). Former race queen Yasueda has a nice D-cup bust and this is also there to tempt us, covered with sand so that her modesty is just about preserved. Cock tease! The "sandy breasts" remind us of a similar shoot by Seira Sato. Hopefully some more scans ...

Has Rino Sashihara gone too far this time? In her new photo book released on March 22nd, Sashihara is basically naked, showing off her ass. So far, the reaction online has been mixed, with some excitement mixed with anger that another AKB idol has stepped over a line. The debate has centered on if she is wearing panties or not. Is there a thong between her buttocks? The man-eater is already notorious for her exile from AKB to the HKT48 sister group for having sex with a fan. Sashihara's new photo book doesn't yet have an official title but we expect it will break ...

Maggy has never been a stranger to slinky shoots, having modeled for Peach John lingerie catalogues since 2012. The haafu model and tarento has now gone further and stripped off for two new solo photo books, "I'm Maggy" and "Your Maggy", that show off her fey body a lot more. It's funny, the people who buy these photo books are actually mostly girls who want to get style and beauty tips off a model they admire. Guys are free to jerk off to them too, of course, for no extra charge. Here are some older pics of ...

Rie Miyazawa's photo book "Santa Fe" came out in 1991, making the hair nude photo-book genre very famous. "Santa Fe" was a huge hit for Rie Miyazawa and photographer Kishin Shinoyama. It then became popular for young stars to announce their maturity through hair nude shoots -- plus a way to relaunch their career, as Miyazawa very successfully did. Compared to other "hair nude" photo books, though, "Sante Fe" is relatively tame. You only get a glimpse of Rie's bush. (Compare, say, to Saki Takaoka's hair nude shoot.) In a curious detail that has only been revealed ...

Fetish Fashion Tokyo (or FetishFashion.Tokyo) is a new photography book showcasing the fetish scene in Japan's capital. Released on October 10th, it features photography by Peter W Czernich and modeling from mannequin duo FEMM and Hirari Ikeda (that's her on the cover). Contributors include latex brands Kurage and Atsuko Kudo. The book is bilingual, in English and Japanese, and edited by fetish magazine Infamous Magazine. Don't expect anything hard-core in the book. From the looks of things, its focus is on latex fetish as a fashion statement more than a sexual ...

We swiftly became fans of curvy, sultry Machiko Tezuka when she first stripped off for a hair nude shoot in 2013. Formerly of now disbanded SDN48, the J-cup mistress has gone through several name changes: from Machiko Tezuka (her real name) to Ourei Harada (Gravure debut) to Eiko Maeda (SKE48 debut), and back to Machiko Tezuka (SDN48 debut). Now the 1986-born Machiko has stripped off again this year for some more photos. She is promoting a new photo book out in October, hence the motivation to take her clothes off again for the tabloids. Hey, we certainly won't complain about some ...

Yuka Kuramochi has legions of fans for one simple reason: her butt. She has one of the curviest of asses in Gravure idol, which is complemented perfect by a slim waist and large bust. It apparently measures over 100cm! And now Yuka Kuramochi has done perhaps her sexiest shoot yet. And it really shows off her naked flesh in a shoot for Young Animal magazine. The 23-year-old idol is promoting her new photo book "Funbashiri", shot partly at her family home in Funabashi, Chiba. (The title is a pun on the city ...

Fumi Nikaido is a sprightly 20-year-old Okinawan but already acquired has legions of fans. A child star, she made her debut as a junior idol when 12. She is probably best known overseas for her role in Himizu in 2011. In addition to her prolific career (starring in several films a year), she posed nude for Weekly Playboy in 2014 and an accompanying photo book. Sadly, it wasn't a full-frontal "hair nude" shoot, though that might even be illegal, given that she was under 20. No breasts on display yet but give her time... It was also ...
