10 Of Strangest Things About Japan’s Sex Culture



The Japanese are often thought to be sexually repressed because of the statistics saying they’re one of the lowest birthrate countries and the ever-high number of people who are choosing a single lifestyle over a romantic partnership. However, the sex industry in Japan is huge and blooming, and right now it’s actually one of the biggest industries in the world. Japanese also have their own twists when it comes to how they perceive and consummate sex, so we’ve gathered the ten strangest things you never knew about Japan’s sex culture.

Vibrator Bars

Tokyo is the home city of a bar called The Vibe Bar Wild One that’s a place where for a small price you can see, touch and feel hundreds of vibrators that are displayed on the walls of the bar. It is a place where you can basically masturbate freely, with or without your partner. The entrance is forbidden to single men.

Orgasm Wars

Japan TV features maybe the most hilarious piece of television ever. It is a segment where a gay man attempts to make a straight porn star ejaculate every episode. One of the ABC producers commented on the show saying: “Their games are all about saving face. When you don’t do good, you’ve harmed your family—you don’t look good in your family’s eyes.” It doesn’t matter if it’s a sex show, you either win or you don’t go home.

Sex Propaganda

Japanese sex industry has a real problem with Chinese sex tourists as it is very common for rich Chinese businessman to travel to Japan for the sole purpose of having fun with prostitutes while being absolutely negligent about the rules of the game. Wealthy businessmen from China apparently eat sushi off the naked bodies of Japanese women, bring in laptops and ask them to reenact favorite porn scenes, have absolutely no manners, and take photographs despite “No Camera” signs.

College Rape Parties

Super Free is social club at Waseda University that has turned into a rape club. The way it works is parties are hosted and then boys from richer universities get girls from less prestigious universities drunk and sometimes drugged and proceeding to gang rape them. The practice become so well-tuned that the owners of the bar took photos of the girls as they were being raped in order to secure themselves from getting reported to the police.

Naked Continent

The Naked Continent series is a porn documentary produced by Natural High, a Japanese company that specializes in extreme forms of pornography. The purpose of the documentary was to produce a series showing places such as Papua New Guinea, the Amazon, and parts of Africa and their native residents having sex with Japanese adult film stars. The movie got extensive heavy critics as it exploited poor people, the actors and actresses and didn’t protect both parties against HIV.

Sugar Dating Minors

Enjo Kosai is the Japanese version of sugar dating version that involves young women, including schoolgirls, dating older men for money. It became popular in 1980s and continues today, with the girls being as young as 14.
