The Japanese romance film Usotsuki Paradox (sometimes Usotsuki Paradokusu, or Liar Paradox) stars Nami Motoyama (本山なみ) and features a number of explicit nude scenes. Though the film is now almost 10 years old, we wanted to highlight some of these. They include a nude bathing scene between Motoyama's character and her lover, and then a length bed sex scene where her lover goes down on her. They are then shown having sex while she sits in his lap with her legs over his shoulders (athletic!) as well as in missionary and from behind while she lies on her front (and grabs the bed in ...

In the age of #MeToo, the job of the intimacy coordinator in film and television has risen to prominence in the West. What about Japan? With the recent scandals over the likes of directors Sion Sono and Hideo Sakaki, documentary filmmaker Yu Kaneko, and actor Houka Kinoshita, concern over sexual predators and harassment is higher than ever (albeit much more belated than in the United States and Europe). Intimacy coordinators do exist, though are a rare species indeed. Gendai Media recently published a two-part interview with Momoko Nishiyama, one of only two professional intimacy ...

The Japanese actress Yoko Shimada (島田陽子) has died, aged 69, from complications of colorectal cancer. She was best known internationally for her English-speaking role in the miniseries Shogun from 1980, adapted from the James Clavell bestseller. Shimada rose to fame in Japan in the 1970s as an actress and singer, and then capitalized on her role in Shogun and became a star in Japan (though more international roles were few and fair between). But it all came crashing down in the late 1980s, when an affair with the musician Yuya Uchida was exposed by the tabloids and all her work ...

Despite her now-established mainstream popularity, the Japanese actress Fumi Nikaido has shown herself gamely willing to strip off for the right role. After some previous nudity in the film River's Edge, for example, she did sex scenes in My Man, No Longer Human, and Tezuka's Barbara. And she does all this while fronting major advertising campaigns for brands. All too frequently, a willingness to remove your wardrobe consigns you to pink movie and B-movie quarters, so Nikaido is something of an outlier. In River's Edge, her nude scenes were actually pretty tame, especially compared to far ...

The relatively little-known actress Kurumi Nakayama (中山来未) has several nude scenes in the aptly titled Naked Angel: The Red Room, a film released in Japan in 2021 and based on a short story by Edogawa Ranpo. There are several sex scenes, including one in a public restroom, and other scenes that apparently required Nakayama to be nude, though the final one has a bloody end involving a pair of scissors. The slim and slinky, modestly chested Nakayama shows off a lot of her body in these scenes, including a shot of her anus as she leans over her lover in the cowgirl ...

We've just discovered the Korean movie The Cursed Lesson, which came out internationally in late 2020. It's a peculiar horror film about yoga lessons that turn strange. Let's be honest, we were interested less in the plot than in the weird sex scenes. This is intensely athletic, whereby Han Se-min gets gracefully manipulated into a range of physically impressive positions. One of these is an acrobatic doggy where she is suspended in midair by her muscular partner. They also do scissoring with some aggressive thrusting. Throughout, Han Se-min's butt and pointy nipples are on full ...

Ex-Nogizaka46 member Sayuri Matsumura gets her breasts groped in the new movie Will I Be Single Forever? (Zutto dokushin de iru tsumori?), which is available on Amazon Prime Video in Japan. In the sex scene, Matsumura lies on a bed while a man tries to get her in the mood by rubbing her breasts vigorously. She seems less than convinced by the experience and his efforts. There's no actual nudity, we are sad to report. Now 29 years old, Sayuri Matsumura (aka Sayurin) is a former member of the Tokyo idol group. She graduated in summer 2021, having joined in 2011. During her years in the ...

After two seasons of The Naked Director and films like Ride or Die, Netflix is proving that its original Japanese content is the place to go for nude sex scenes. In the film We Couldn't Become Adults, a Netflix original and now available on the streaming giant, Sairi Ito (伊藤沙莉) shows her beautiful Japanese-sized breasts when her lover takes her off robe and then she lies down in bed for some action. We get to see her nipples pretty close up. Sairi Ito also had a small role in the two seasons of The Naked Director. She previously did nude scenes in Love and Other Cults ...

The Korean TV show everyone is talking about and streaming is Squid Game but there's plenty more out there, especially because Netflix is heavily investing in Korean content. One of them is My Name, which stars Han So-hee and Park Hee-see. It's a dark crime drama about a woman who joins a gang to avenge her father's death, and ends up going undercover in the police. We were pleased to find it contained this sex scene with 26-year-old Han So-hee and Ahn Bo-hyun, though you have wait until the final episode for it. Alright, the most you get to see is some side boob and back, so this isn't ...

Yuko Oshima has really changed in the seven or so years since she graduated AKB48 (writing which makes us feel old!). She's reinvented herself as a serious actress, like her former AKB stablemate Atsuko Maeda. She went off to study in America and got herself a foreign boyfriend when she returned. More recently, the 32-year-old got married (not to the aforementioned foreign boyfriend but to fellow actor Kento Hayashi) this year. But another chapter in her post-AKB career appeared a couple of years ago: she shot her first sex scenes (unless we missed an earlier example) for All the Things We ...
