The actress and model Reina Triendl, who is one of the many cute haafu that dominate Japanese pop culture, has stripped for a sex scene in TV drama Perfect Crime on TV Asahi. The half-Austrian, half-Japanese 27-year-old is shown in bed with a male partner (who has a prominent wedding ring on his finger) in the current drama. Don't get overly excited. The scene is relatively tame. You don't get to see any actual nudity, but if you like bare backs you are in for a treat. The kissing is chaste and, if anything, rather unappealing, but Triendl looks pretty and alluring throughout ...

Erika Ikuta of Nogizaka46 has a major hit on her hands with her latest photo book, which may more than just a little to do with the fact that she has posed semi-nude for it. After all, as Rena Kato amply demonstrated, raising the sexiness level for a photo book generally leads to buzz and sales. Here are some of the delights waiting for readers on the pages of "Intermission." The photo book was shot over seven days in New York last September. Following a series of successful photo books by Nogizaka46 and Keyakizaka46 idols, not least Mai Shirase, but ...

And so the pre-Olympic crackdown continues. After earlier initiatives outside Tokyo, we reported in November 2017 on the decision by the convenience store chain Ministop to stop selling pornographic magazines. Well, the sentiment is spreading and one of the largest chains in the country, Lawson, announced on January 21st that its 14,574 branches nationwide would in principle cease sales of adult magazines by the end of August. Until now, it was up to affiliates in the franchise whether or not they sold porn magazines, which typically are available in most conbinis among the rack of ...

If you're a young woman in Japan, especially in a big city like Tokyo, and you ride the train regularly, the chances are you have encountered the problem of chikan, or groping. Schoolgirls are frequent targets, probably because of their obvious sexual appeal to certain men but also because their youth means they are more likely to be too scared to do anything when groped in public. Train carriages carry plenty of warnings about chikan, usually in the form of stickers or posters, ostensibly aimed at the perpetrators and witnesses. But what about publicity for victims or potential ...

Sometimes, things are just too good to be true. Here's a case in point. A Japanese model called imma has attracted a following on Instagram for her amazing looks and style. But imma is not a regular model or idol. She's not even human. Like the schoolgirl Saya, the AKB48 member Aimi Eguchi, and the entirely AI-generated idol supergroup, imma is entirely digital. The CG virtual idol is the creation of ModelingCafe, a company that has produced digitally crafted characters and monsters for a range of media (check out its impressive portfolio). Well, imma (whose name is apparently a pun on ...

Well, as we know from recent weekly magazine content ranking which college girls are easiest, MeToo in Japan has yet to arrive fully. Now here's another example to add to the litany of shame, at least in the eyes of feminists. The most recent episode of Ken Shimura's comedy TV show, Shimura Ken no Bakatono-sama, on Fuji TV that was broadcast on January 9th included a sketch involving a "flesh futon" (niku-futon, literally "meat futon"). Inevitably this meant scantily-clad ladies. During the course of the sketch, Shimura was squeezed snugly between four pairs of women in bikinis and ...

The wonderful Mulboyne, a boundless source of so much trivia and fascinating information about Japan, has posted a few images from past streaking incidents in Japan. We wanted to share these with our readers, along with some further commentary. Japan is a culture of pubic bathing, so public nudity is hardly much to write home about. But streaking, where one runs naked through a public place, is different: it is done for attention or as a protest, and is pronounced like a foreign word in Japanese. It was applied first, it seems, in the early 1970s to describe a rash of incidents ...

Campaigners have launched a petition on Change.org in protest at a recent article by the weekly magazine Spa! that ranked female Japanese university students by how easy they are to sleep with. The activists say: "Japan, stop objectifying, sexualizing and disrespecting and looking down on women." Demanding an apology and retraction of the "easy college girls ranking" article (titled "ヤレる女子大学生RANKING" in Japanese), the petition is presented in Japanese, English and Spanish. Here is what the petition, which is led by Kazuna Yamamoto, says. 2018 was a year where ...

We start the New Year the way we want to carry on for the next twelve months with some parsing of Japanese amateur females and their nude selfies. We selected this ravishing beauty to showcase today. This I-cup goddess is certainly a nice way to begin January. If the description is to be believed, she is a 19-year-old "office lady" (OL). Who knows if that's true or not, but you can't lie about the quality of this bust -- a mightily impressive pair of bakunyu "explosive breasts" if ever there was one this side of the professional gravure divide. She makes some efforts to hide her face ...

We've always had a soft spot for pocchari ladies, hence we've written about such curvy idols on this blog before. We just came across another example, where Asian Boss -- the YouTube channel responsible for some great interviews, like with former porn stars Emiri Okazaki and Taka Kato -- recently spoke with someone from Big Angel as well as the group's fans. In this idol group, the members are larger than average and even go by food nicknames. The video features Michiko Gotochi (also known as Michiko Ohashi, it seems), who is 167 centimetres (5.48 feet) tall and weighs 109.8 ...
