Girls give titillating tell-all in saucy survey

October 4, 2005.
Mainichi News

"I knew there was no point continuing," a 28-year-old receptionist tells an-an (10/5), "the moment he reached his climax and screamed out 'Mommy' in ecstasy."

Talk about sex lives to almost 1,000 Japanese women -- as the racy women's weekly did -- and that's the sort of thing you'll find out.

Of the 973 women who took part in an-an's annual survey on sex, 20-somethings averaged from 2.9 partners (from 20 to 29) to 4.5 partners (from 25 to 29) throughout their lives, while those aged 30 to 34 had, on average, slept with 4.2 men.

They were more likely to act on weeknights than weekends, with 56 percent enjoying their connubials once (33 percent) or twice (23 percent) every two weeks.

Some of the women, like the receptionist, also told of coming up against circumstances that made it impossible for them to go on.

"I was right in the middle of ministrating him with my mouth and looked up to see that he'd dozed off," a 30-year-old nurse tells an-an.

Another woman, a 21-year-old college coed, adds that she reached her limit when "he wore my bra, put his boxers on his head and wanted to do it decked out like that."

Women told the weekly that they were most likely to get into the mood when they felt lonely, but other favorite times included immediately before menstruating, after exhaustive periods of work, following a reasonably long drought in the bedroom and when watching a romantic movie.

Guys' chests were the parts of the body that more women felt attracted to, but they also liked big hands and nimble fingers.

About 70 percent of women had experienced orgasm, but of these, there were 27 percent who had not climaxed following penetration. Asked to describe the sensations felt during their orgasms, one woman said, "blood streaming through my entire body started flowing in the opposite direction," while another elaborated by saying, "a sea breeze blew through my brain."

But, while there may have been some good times, there were also some sessions that were a little less than pleasant.

"We were going at it, when all of a sudden I could hear this tapping on the window of our bedroom," a 27-year-old systems engineer says. "It was my boyfriend's old classmate from junior high and he'd suddenly turned up in Tokyo from Hiroshima and needed a place to stay."

A 28-year-old woman inadvertently put on a show for the neighbors.

"We were having sex in the car and I just happened to look up and notice that this old woman who'd been out walking her dog was staring at us the whole time," she says.

Another woman, a student aged 21, tells a story of an embarrassing session in the sack that it also somewhat of a sign of the times.

"I'd stuck my mobile phone under my pillow and we were in the passionate throes of love-making," she tells an-an. "When, all of a sudden, I got a phone call from one of the people running my club at college." (By Ryann Connell)

Some people have a lot of fantasy and imagination here in Japan.
I think, these ladies had a lot of fun to reply to such a kind of 'survey'.
Not much leftover, what is really true, if you ask me.
The result is 'the joke of the day'. Have fun to read that.....

Judging by this article, it would suggest that Japanese men are a lot more kinky than the women and the women want some more traditional sexual-sessions.  I know that many Japanese men are into some really kinky things.  Everytime I am in Japan, there are just so many adorable women I see there.  I would like to take some time with all of them, those cute little dolls! :rofl2:

You're sure right, Trip.
With one remark, the Japanese men just do not dare not to be traditional (at least with their wife... :rofl2: )but dream not to be.
The Japanese ladies are very traditional but know how not to be and are sure more 'daring'... :rofl2:  :rofl2:

Saucy spontaneity not just something that pops up out of the blue

October 10, 2005 Mainichi News

In a land where advanced planning is as highly esteemed as it is in Japan, spontaneity is not just something that pops up out of the blue. And the bedroom, it seems, is no exception, according to Spa! (10/11).

Mood can make or break what's supposed to be a romantic liaison between lovers. A simple slip could ruin the atmosphere and spoil the night.

Despite a widespread belief that Japanese women are passive when preparing conditions for intimate encounters, Spa! says they're actually working like busy little beavers to make sure their trysts come off perfectly.

"Nothing's worse than reaching that point in time you're just about ready to start and it's a matter of 'God, where's the condom?'" a 27-year-old woman says. "The instant you have to start looking around for one, the moment is destroyed."

Plenty of other girls seem to think along the same lines, with 30 of 250 women polled by the men's weekly say that if they think there's a chance they may be snuggling up, they always make sure they know precisely where they can easily get their hands on some birth control.

Just having the rubber 'round, though, is not always enough for some, with 14 saying that they do everything to make sure that they have a condom with the packet open and ready to be slipped on in a moment's notice.

Attire also gets plenty of attention, with 23 of the 250 saying that strenuously avoid wearing clothes like jeans that are hard to remove -- or have removed -- in the heat of the moment.

Cleanliness is another area given high priority.

"I'm constantly checking to make sure I have enough tissues in the home. If I don't have enough in boxes, I give them a refill using pocket tissues," a 31-year-old woman tells Spa!

If cleaning up beforehand is held highly, then it's doubly important once the deed is done.

"Every time I know there might be some activity, the waste-paper basket is moved to a place pretty close to my bed," a 29-year-old woman says.

Some go even further when it comes to the tendency to have absolutely everything they feel they need within arm's reach.

"I gathered up all my old stockings," a 29-year-old writer tells Spa! "Because I figured my boyfriend would probably enjoy ripping the stockings I was wearing."

Sex? Been there, done that, say disinterested wives

Aera (11/7). Mainichi News


This four-page article in Aera (11/7) is based on a poll of 300 married women, with more than half its space devoted to bar graphs and pie graphs -- a total of 20, if you can believe it. But bear with us; there are interesting conclusions to be drawn from the "sexless" relationships that appear to plague an increasing number of Japan's marriages.


More than half the respondents (51.0 percent), told Aera their interest in sex came to a screeching halt with the birth of a child. They voiced other reasons, but most of these as well involved the addition of a new family member. These included "occupied with child rearing" (36.0 percent) and "concerned about the children" (35.0). Other responses for disinterest (with percentages in brackets) included don't find husband appealing any more (29.0); no longer enjoy sex (28.0); unable to feel aroused by husband (27.0); feel repulsed by sex (24.0); no longer any fun (24.0); no longer get a charge from it (14.0); and don't like husband any more (14.0).

Nevertheless, it appears that at least when single, most of these women had enjoyed sex, or at least the romance that accompanied it. In contrast to a remarkably low 2.5 percent who said they had never engaged in sex prior to marriage, 57.5 percent replied that they had, and the experience was pleasurable; 10 percent went so far to say they enjoyed it tremendously. But about one in four said premarital sex was less than pleasant; and 3.5 percent admitted to hating it right from the start.

Perhaps related to the above, Aera found that 18.5 percent of the respondents replied "yes" to having had some negative sexual experience prior to marriage. The most frequently given answers included "lover demanded a type of sex she didn't agree with" (56.8 percent); was turned off by some sex-related experience when a child (21.6); was molested by a groper or pervert (10.8); was punished by a parent for engaging in sex (5.5); was sexually abused by a relative (2.7); and had been raped (2.7 percent).

Whatever the reason, once married, these women don't get it on any more. When asked how they thought their husbands should deal with this declining interest, only 15 percent of the wives said they felt apologetic. "I'd like him to be more understanding," whined another 14 percent. "I think he should not be so dependent on sex," pouted 44 percent. And another 26 percent said they hadn't really given much thought to the matter.

A 33-year-old housewife is one of those who feels she's had enough.

"My husband is one of those types who takes a long time to finish," she relates. "Even before we married I felt a strong sense of fatigue from doing it. When one partner doesn't feel anything, it gives sex a sterile feeling. So sex, which is supposed to feel good, has become a heavy chore for me."

"In Japan, 'seijo-i' the so-called 'missionary position,' is by far the most common" says Shigeru Kashima, a professor of Buddhist literature at Kyoritsu Women's University and author of books on sex. "In the West, by contrast, the female-superior position, where women find it easier to control their movements, predominates. I think there's also a major difference in the degree to which societies permit women to be able to assert their own sexual preferences."

But the sexless equation has two sides, and husbands, too, have reasons for ignoring their wives in the conjugal bed. Of those wives who received some explanation for their husband's lack of interest, precisely half told Aera that their husband had begged off because work "had become busy." The next four replies -- all with 18.8 percent responses -- included he was no longer sexually aroused by her; he no longer found her appealing; he doesn't like sex any more; and he's concerned about the children. This was followed by: sex no longer needed since children had been conceived, 12.5 percent; he had become dysfunctional or impotent, 12.5 percent; and he complained there was not enough foreplay to arouse him, 6.3 percent.

In any case, how did the wives cope with sexlessness? In 25.5 percent of the cases, they said they felt no sexual desire and didn't miss it. Another 19.0 percent masturbated; and 8.0 admitted to engaging in extramarital sex. But the majority (52.5 percent) had nothing to say about the situation at all -- accepting a sexless existence as the natural state of affairs.

Despite what the tabloids and weeklies report about wildly promiscuous housewives, the percentages of wives in their 20s, 30s, and 40s who insisted they had never once cheated on their husbands was uniformly high: 84.8, 79.1 and 83.6 percent, respectively. (Among 300 sexless husbands questioned in a previous Aera survey, affections strayed at a much higher rate, with 64.2 percent of men in their 30s and 62.7 percent in their 40s admitting to infidelity.)

A few wives managed to explore their own sensuality. For one 38-year-old woman, sexual epiphany came from watching a foreign male actor, whose performance on the screen kindled long-dormant passions.

"Imagining myself being held in his arms and then masturbating gave me a wonderful feeling, and I finally learned how an orgasm actually felt," she tells Aera. "Now that I know how good it feels, I might even be able to enjoy the same sensation when making love with my husband."

He screamed Mommy?! Fraud should have worked in Japan.

I don't want this to sound bad, or racist, I really don't mean to offend, but why is it that everytime sex and Japanese men come together in a coversation I am always left with the idea that these men are just plain sick. It's not culture, just a nation full of sexually disturbed men, who really need to get a life and a clue.


Someone should take away the mange porn from these guys.

Hungry housewives make a bit on the side through amateur porn

31 March 2006. Mainichi News

Japan's literally desperate housewives are finding the close relationship between the Internet and adult entertainment can help them pick up a handy profit, according to Shukan Post (4/7).

Moviemaker Nikkatsu found a steady stream of income with its softcore "Hitozuma (Wife)" series of skin flicks in the '70s and '80s using porn professionals.

But now, in Noughties Japan, ordinary, everyday housewives have taken the raunchy racket to a new level.

"Ladies' comics and employment magazines for the adult industry are jam-packed with ads offering work in the movies. These ads have all got phrases like 'Start filming today' and 'Position needs to be filled urgently,' while offering rates of payment ranging anywhere from 30,000 yen to 800,000 yen," the content producer of an adult video website tells Shukan Post. "In reality, payments are almost always 30,000 yen. The work is merely spending two or three hours for a single sex session."

The producer says he gets about 10 inquiries about job offers a day. He asks interested applicants to send in a photo of their faces through their mobile phone, and then invites the women he deems best looking -- about half the applicants -- to come into his office for an interview. Those interested in taking on the work -- again, about half the women he talks to -- are taken to a nearby love hotel and put onto the job immediately.

"An overwhelming number of the job-seekers are in it for the money. A majority of inquiries about work are concentrated around paydays," the producer says. "They call up asking for work, saying they haven't got enough cash to pay the rent, need money to get by, or want to be able to pay their phone bills."

Most of the housewives looking for adult video work are in their 20s to 40s. Some of them even turn up for their dirty work with their young children in tow.

A 30-year-old housewife identified only as Mrs. A tells the Post why she felt compelled to star in an adult movie in February.

"I look after all the money in our house, but we have to scrimp and save just to get by each month. My husband and I don't have a particularly bad relationship, but we've been married five years now and only make love about once a month," Mrs. A tells Shukan Post. "This job pays the same day you work. Otherwise, it's just the same as any other part-time job."

Ayumi Sakai, a writer well versed in female sexuality issues, explains why growing numbers of Japanese housewives have little compunction about baring it all for blue movies.

"Since (the mid-'90s) when prostitution was suddenly referred to by the euphemism 'enjo kosai' (literally, 'compensated dating'), women have become sexually liberated at an alarmingly quick rate," Sakai says. "Even if the pay is low, women are attracted to the idea of performing in movies if they know they're going to get paid for it."

Hiromi Ikeuchi, operator of Tokyo Family Laboratory, a therapy center to help families cope with their woes, says women have developed a taste for saucy celluloid because they've become too strong overall.

"We've gone past the age of equality of the sexes and are instead now it feels like a time when women have started to become excessive in their demands," Ikeuchi tells Shukan Post. "They get into the belief that their husbands aren't looking after them enough, are filled with discontent, then race off and have affairs, demand divorces, rack up debts and declare bankruptcy. I kind of feel like we're in an era when women have lost control of their desires and no longer know how to be patient."

So, is it the money or the press they are looking for? I mean would these women be just as willing to have sex for money without the camera?

I have always wondered why, like here in America, porn is legal but prostitution is illegal. It makes no sense.

Marriages in the mire as housewives frolic further afield

28 April 2006. Mainichi News

A 34-year-old Tokyo housewife started her fling a couple of years ago, according to Shukan Post (5/5-12).


"My husband works for a foreign company, so he makes a bit more money than most. But he's always so busy, it's been ages since we've had a romp," the woman, identified only as Mrs. A, tells Shukan Post. "I started going out at night more. Recently, a friend of ours invited me out to a disco, which is back in fashion again now. While there, I wait for somebody to come along and put the hard word on me. We'll go for a date a few nights later, but invariably end up heading off to a hotel. Feeling guilty about my husband while having sex with somebody else just makes it all the more thrilling."

Japan's couples are collapsing, according to the top selling weekly, adding that the number of women looking for amorous adventures is on the rise. Mayumi Nimatsu, head of the Sex and Couples Consultation Center, agrees.

"In 2003, a survey I carried out on 1,609 housewives showed that 17 percent had engaged in sex with a man other their husband at least once since they got married. Another 7.4 percent said they maintained an extramarital, heterosexual relationship," Nimatsu tells Shukan Post. "I expect the number of housewives engaged in activities like this will increase."

One of the main reasons for women looking outside of the connubial conclave is the sexless plague afflicting married Japanese.

A survey by the Japan Family Planning Association shows that 35 percent of married Japanese have not engaged in marital relations over the past month.

"Guys who choose to bring to an end their sex lives with their wives often use excuses such as their spouse losing interest after childbirth, or that work is keeping them so tired, they're left with a choice of pursuing hobbies or relations, and they regularly choose the former," Dr. Kunio Kitamura, head of the association, tells Shukan Post. "Sexless wives, meanwhile, say that sex is a bore and, when it does happen, it's always entirely what the husband wants with little attention paid to their own needs. If the couples don't work at it and let the problem lie, the divide between the couples will only be cleaved further."

Indeed, many women aren't even bothering with trying to coax their hubbies into better relationships. Instead, they sow a few wild oats of their own.

The men's weekly notes that Japan's multifaceted adult movie industry is proving to be a sturdy employer for housewives seeking some extra cash by starring in dirty movies.

"A large majority of women doing this sort of thing don't realize that their actions could end up ruining their families. They think marriage and affairs are two different issues," Sanae Kameyama, author of "Marriage Sex," tells Shukan Post. "Women now think they're only doing what men have always done up until now. But, I often hear of guys feeling guilty for cheating on their wives, but not as many women playing around feel as bad for their husbands. I'd guess that extramarital relationships are quietly going to become even more popular from now on, too."

I occasionally get hit on by Japanese women in Western-style pubs, but they are usually late 20s, unnattractive and chain-smokers (I assume they are single). I've never come across any attractive but desperate housewives, or the "lip my stockings" type that Bill Murray encountered in Lost in Translation. The housewives seem to advertise online and always specify "not over 45".

Thanks. I'm more interested in Japan than Thailand these days. Incidentally, the actor Hiroyuki Sanada in your current avatar is awesome in Onmyoji. He was a martial arts star with pretty-boy looks when he was young - check out Ninja in the Dragon's Den.

I have got a list of his movies to see....if I can ever find them in this godforsaken place I live. :o

I really like him, he is one of those actors who can communicate with the face and nothing else. If you haven't seen Twlight Samurai, you must, beautiful movie and he did a great job.

I seem to recall reading it was slow - like a lot of Japanese movies.
