It was only a matter of time before someone came up with a way of linking maid cafes and hostess bars with digital idols and adult virtual reality. Behold the VR hostess cafe. Yumenographia is not a physical space, but exists purely in a digital realm: it's waiting for your patronage whenever and wherever you put on a VR headset. It is staffed by hostesses/maids who are, of course, entirely "fake" -- in the sense that they are digital avatars. But, and this is a big "but," the hostesses are real in the sense that they are the avatars of genuine people, rather than characters. At some remote ...

We think we probably do more than enough damage to Brand Japan by our daily blog posts without perpetuating media myths about "sexless Japan." We see a lot of articles and coverage of this topic, which we feel is a real problem but nonetheless also exaggerated by sensational, mostly foreign reporting. Nonetheless, we like to share interesting twists on this familiar trope. Something like half of married couples are no longer having sex, the studies would have us believe. But this may start younger, since one survey apparently claimed the majority of college students are virgins. This is ...

Virtual dating games and services are very well-established in Japan, and YouTube is the next logical step in this evolution. One of the biggest virtual YouTuber idols at the moment is Shiro-chan, whose videos offer private dining experiences. Now the Japanese virtual YouTuber Note Takehana has upped the stakes with a crowdfunding campaign to remake the titular VTuber with 3D computer graphics. To encourage fans to contribute, "she" is offering supporters a range of merchandise depending on how far their wallets stretch. So what's the top perk? If you fork out ¥1 million ($9,000), you get ...

When the new Japanese era name of Reiwa was announced on April 1st, sparking intense speculation about how best to translate it into English, our first thought was: that could be a great porn star's name! Admittedly the kanji characters (令和) are unusual, so it would have to be a homonym. Unfortunately we couldn't find any decent examples on a brief search Nonetheless, the most amusing such parallel we've spotted so far has actually derived from the official English translation of the name: beautiful harmony. An online search for "beautiful harmony," though, may bring up quite a ...

A new commercial for German DIY store chain Hornbach has stirred controversy. It shows two unkempt and decidedly unhandsome white men getting all sweaty outside in the garden, watched by two scientific-looking bods. The men are then instructed to strip for the observers and hand over their apparently smelly briefs. The scene cuts to an unnamed East Asian city that looks like Hong Kong or a futuristic Tokyo. A woman approaches a vending machine and buys a package. it turns out to be one of the hairy German guys' briefs, sealed and fresh. The woman, who looks Japanese, gleefully opens the ...

This is the latest nude selfie lady (裏垢女子) that caught our eye. She's apparently a "young Japanese wife." We can't prove this with any certainty, but we can definitely say that she has breasts and pale Asian skin to die for. While she sometimes uses filters to hide her face and identity, this is often very minimal and at least one shot is totally open, giving us a full look at her beauty. What a stunner. If the paper she is holding up is true (and we are reading it right), the clue to finding her is the code eDDIxZN30 but this doesn't seem to yield results on Google Search or ...

Ah, Japanese television. Not the place to go for cutting-edge drama or provocative news stories. But it is the place to go for bizarre shows that tread a fine line between porn and... well, we're not quite sure what. Case in point is this show called Zennihon Waga Ie no Ofuro Osho (全日本わが家のお風呂大賞, All-Japan Our Bath Grand Prize) on the streaming channel FOD broadcast on March 27th and apparently introducing bathing spots around Japan. The actual point of this show seems purely to let viewers leer at the body of such ladies as Natsumi Hirajima, who looks frankly ...

We all need the touch of the others when we are lonely -- and the hand of another can be particularly, well, handy. The best solution we've ever seen has been the Man's SOM Hand Type Handjob Machine, which is a bestselling masturbot that is exactly what its name suggests. If you don't want to go the whole hog, though, there are always onaholes in the shape of a woman's hands or even special stockings-style gloves that make a handjob feel like someone else is doing the business for you. What about if you are a girl who wants someone to squeeze your hand, say, during a horror movie but don't ...

Voice actress and singer Sumire Uesaka is famous for being cute, of course, and also having an obsession with the Soviet Union. Now she possibly has another feather in her bow. The 27-year-old idol amply exploits her bust, lips, and other physical assets in the video for "Bon kyu bon wa kare no mono" (very roughly, "My Busty Bust Is His"). The single, which is Uesaka's tenth and is out on April 17th, is also the intro theme for the TV anime Nande Koko ni Sensei Ga!? (Why are you here, sensei?!), for which Sumire voices the character Kana Kojima. The video shows Uesaka lounging around ...

We're a little late to the party with this but our favorite Twitter account of the moment is @shinya_1972_, which has been posting alluring images of beautiful women since May 2018. There is no information in the profile and no links to speak of, but it seems like "Shinya" is a photographer (born in 1972?) who is generously sharing his own images of models (or girlfriends?). There's rarely any actual nudity but these photos are incredibly hot. Seemingly shot on a film camera and without much or any editing, the erotic images feel raw and genuine. The subjects are lying half-naked on a ...
