Getting Kinky

Japan is about as kinky as sex around the world gets. Cute doll-like girls and frustrated salary men, love hotels and pornography everywhere.

It has been noted before that the Japanese culture is unique in many ways, often not short of bizarre. When it comes to sex though they blow the rest of the world away.

Though on the decline there are still vending machines that dispense the underwear of Japanese schoolgirls; the traditional subject of erotic fantasy in Japan. Schoolgirls represent all the naive, submissive qualities so idealized by the men. Many of the manga comic books read by the average salary man depict schoolgirls being raped and demeaned.

Not that the schoolgirls are any angels themselves though. Many sell their own soiled underwear over the internet or else engage in enjo kosai or, ‘compensated dating’ Unable to afford the Gucci accessories and Nokia phone of their dreams, girls pick out an older guy and offer their bodies in exchange for designer goods.

Prostitution is rife in Japan and has always been the realm of the Yakuza, the Japanese mafia. There are girls in the street who hopefully call out ‘massagee?’ who will escort you to the nearest parlour.

Then you have the hostess clubs where men go to flirt and be flattered, paying hundreds of dollars per hour and building stronger personal relationships with the hostesses than with their wives.

Once their libidos have been worked up a bit they may head off to the blow job bars. There they buy a drink and a girl comes along to service them under the table. It costs extra if they choose the girl and she’s likely to be an imported Thai, Korean or Filippina.

If they’re looking for something more specialized there are various Soapland joints where women offer assisted ‘touch-good’ and ‘kiss-good’ in a bubble bath. Or otherwise there are full-blown prostitutes offering whatever fantasy the salary man has been dreaming of all week in his dead end job. Often involving some kind of painful degradation or humiliation of the client.

There is also strong evidence of widespread incest in Japan with the majority of cases involving mothers and sons. As the Japanese boy matures into puberty the mother worries that his sex drive may distract him from his studies and so a few take it upon themselves to provide relief themselves.
