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 ...

What was sex in Japan like in 1991? That's probably not a question you hear enough. But given that the Heisei period is about to end with the current emperor's abdication next spring, what better a time than to look back on what people imagined sex should have been like back in the early days of the era? We stumbled upon some scans of a spread from the April 1991 issue of Deluxe Beppin, an adult magazine published in the 1980s and 1990s in Japan. We found them on the fascinating portal of vintage sexiness that is Deluxe Beppin Maniac. The spread is an ambitious and impressive to ...

Have you ever seen those outdoor shots in Japanese adult video and wondered where they are in real life? While a lot of AV is shot in studios and rented hotel rooms, the street shots are done for real (probably without a permit?), though with revealing names (like an actual university's) blurred out. Using Google Street View, some diligent netizens in Japan have tracked down a few of the real-world locations in Tokyo that were used in certain porn releases. It makes for an oddly satisfying experience to identify them, especially if you are familiar with the place. At times, of ...

We spend probably far too much of our time scouring Japanese porn news, parsing gravure idol developments, and checking out the latest kinds of Japanese adult toys to hit the market. We try to balance content on this humble blog based on all three strands of our "research." Today we are taking a deep dive into the third one. Though we usually confine our search to the newest offerings from Japan's top sex toy brands, it sometimes pay dividends to take a gander at the incredible pantheon of items already on offer. We have collected together ten examples of strange, wacky, unusual but ...

Halloween in Japan means many things. It means crazy costumes and street parties. It means cars being overturned. It mean girls in bodystockings. It means a porn shoot truck. It means a top porn star in a cute costume. And it also means old men upskirting young girls. Yes, this is one of the less than savory elements of the Halloween street parties in Tokyo and other cities around Japan. One incredulous person caught an elderly photography patently getting panchira shots of girls in Center Gai last weekend during the height of the Halloween revelry. He seems barely aware that others ...

In August, members of the Japanese national basketball team were sent home from the Asian Games in disgrace after being caught paying for sex in Jakarta. It propelled the ethics of paying for sex into the headlines. Asian Boss, who previously posted interesting videos like interviews with former porn stars Emiri Okazaki and Taka Kato, here interviewed Japanese people on the streets of Tokyo to gauge their opinions on the world's oldest profession. The video was posted a few weeks ago but we only spotted it yesterday. Nonetheless, it's a timeless topic (at least in our world), so we ...

Beasts, beasts, and more beasts. One of the first impressions we had of Japan was through anime -- but this wasn't regular anime. Back then, in the mid-1990s, "anime" implied sexually explicit hentai anime or cult science fiction like Akira. It meant violent titles like Urotsukidoji or Devilman, which we devoured with wide-eyed wonder. And so it was we came to learn about tentacle sex and that whole Pandora's Box of erotic goodies. When we finally got round to Ghibli and so on, it soon became apparent that manga and anime were not specific to certain genre at all. But we still liked to ...

Sex Tech Guide recently wrote up an interesting report about Tokyo's VR booths. "Space is a valuable commodity, but it would seem that in Tokyo at least, so too is the privacy to masturbate," as the article writes -- a fact that people living in the city's rabbit-hutch apartments with families can well attest. The article investigates one such booth in the basement of an Soft on Demand sex shop. The booth contains a computer, VR headset, wall-mounted tissue dispenser, towel, clock, and a vacuum cleaner. Any doubts over the intended use of these booths were quickly dispelled by ...

We've noticed a nice synergy in several Japanese masturbator releases, recently made available for global customers on Kanojo Toys. Though onaholes that each form part of their own respective series, they all adopt a similar design: "Crystal Hard." In short, this means a semi-transparent outer body with hard, tight hole. We spotted three examples. The first is the La Vie en Roses Crystal Hard Onahole, a follow-up to the original mini body masturbator La Vie en Roses, looks both stunning and science fictional at the same time. But check out that labia, beautifully contrasting with the ...
