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 ...

Netizens have "exposed" a female Japanese YouTuber for previously appearing in adult video releases. YouTuber Asuka is famous for making videos about pachinko on her channel Asuka no Pachiheya (Asuka's Pachinko Room, あすかのパチ部屋). While not a huge name compared to the major YouTuber celebrities, her videos nonetheless regularly attract tens of thousands of views, and some have achieved as many as several hundred thousand or even half a million views. She officially joined YouTube with her channel in August this year and has clocked over 5.5 million views. She is a ...

Forget music idols. Young people in Japan all want to be YouTubers these days. In the short space of a few years, the YouTuber has risen to the status of near-god in the media world. As with any celebrity or star, then, many people also want to date YouTubers. But not all YouTubers are real. Shiro is one of the latest virtual YouTubers to attract a following in Japan, the land that previously brought us 2D idols in such games as Love Plus or the digital music idol giant that is Hatsune Miku. Shiro-chan joined YouTube in June 2017, since when the busy lady has released new videos every day ...

Don't look a gift horse in the mouth, as they say. Late last year there was some controversy about a Japanese schoolgirl YouTuber who offered "free oppai" breast gropes to men in Shibuya. Well, another Japanese schoolgirl went and did the same thing. A 16-year-old schoolgirl wearing a bunny girl costume and carrying a sketchbook that said "Free Oppai" invited passersby in Hachiko in Shibuya to touch her breasts. This time, though, it's more serious, and police are cracking down in order to set an example. The anonymous schoolgirl's case was sent to the prosecutors on March ...

We all know free hugs. But what about free oppai? A Japanese female YouTuber, Pepsi Lu, was offering lucky men in Hachiko at Shibuya Station that chance to grope her breasts in public. She kept her clothes on, but naturally this caused quite a fuss after some 60 people -- including women and foreigners (we love how the Japanese press feels the need to mention this point) -- copped a feel of her bust. Sadly the videos are no longer online (apparently deleted for breaching some rule) but, while there's been no Weinstein-esque fallout in Japan, it's nonetheless causing plenty of ...

Japanese nunsploitation exists -- and it's out there waiting for you on YouTube. Ayami Takei is an aspiring YouTuber who had attracted viral attention with a video certain to be taken down by YouTube in the very near future. In it, Takei starts off in a nun costume and then shows off her newly shaven head (unlike certain idols, not done as a sign of penitence). Only she hasn't stopped there: she has also completely shaved her pussy and proudly displays her paipan to the camera. Her video, titled "Flesh and Blood," has already racked up tens of thousands of views, and there are other ...

We want to introduce the work of Masaki C Matsumoto, a queer activist, feminist, and YouTuber working hard to challenge stereotypes about sexual minorities in Japan. As he (perhaps provocatively) says: "Hate crime is nonexistent in Japan," "Japan only recently started having pride marches," "homosexuality is accepted in Japan because of the traditional male-male shudo sexual/romantic culture," "Japanese media are LGBT-friendly," and "Taiga Ishikawa is the first openly gay politician in Japan" are all false! In general, Matsumoto's main point -- and it's a good one -- is that ...

A YouTuber with far too much time on his hands has taken the next step in technological innovation. And it involves his penis. We don't know what was going through the mind of KaoringMachine when he came up with the idea for the Ochinchin Drum (literally, "penis drum"), but the results are impressive. The Electric Sexy Drum Pants is how he calls his new instrument in English, which is surely going to get wannabe musicians lining up to give it a shot. The contraception contraption sounds deceptively simple, but then that's perhaps because it is. It's basically a pair of pants with ...
