1960s Japanese advertisement show Showa charms of sexy swimsuits

We are avoiding beaches and public pools right now, given the ongoing coronavirus infection rate, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t thinking about swimsuits.

Far from it, they are one of the highlights of any summer in Japan.

And to show just how far things have come, we wanted to share with you an image from 1966 (Showa 41), which we spotted shared on Twitter.

It’s an advertisement for “beach-ready” ladies in their colorful swimsuits. “Which is your pattern?” the main copy asks.

All the women model different styles of swimwear, each aimed at a respective kind of personality (from the “white skin” type to the “junior type” or “bad girl type,” and so on). The eight women are actresses contracted to the major studios at the time (Toho, Nikkatsu, etc.) — this being a time when the studio system was still strong in Japan, though the rise of pink eiga soft-core porn and the New Wave of independent filmmakers was undermining it. The women on the far right, Akemi Higashiyama, is credited as Crown Records because she is also a singer.

Just think, these ladies are in their seventies today!

By way of comparison, here is a fairly typical style of swimsuit as worn by a cute gravure idol, Sakura Otawa (太田和さくら).

Ex-NMB48 idol Miyuki Watanabe models for Peach John lingerie brand

We like it when the legions of idols who pass through the ranks of AKB48 and its sister groups manage to find second careers after graduation. This is actually quite rare, though a lucky few do go on to work as actors, singers, models, tarento, or other types of entertainers.

Now Miyuki Watanabe, formerly of NMB48, has established herself as an underwear model by posing for Peach John.

The shoot has shown off a lot more of her cleavage than we have seen until now, and we like the results, even if Miyuki is far from what we might call busty.

The popular lingerie brand Peach John is known for its use of models and impressive shoots. It has previously harnessed the power of AKB48 idol Haruna Kojima, but this was back when she was still in the group (and she has since faded from public view since graduating).

Perhaps, then, the closest comparison is with Yuki Kashiwagi, the former member of AKB48, who also posed for an awesome lingerie shoot (for the Peach John rival, Ravijour) after leaving the supergroup. (She nominally designed the lingerie, too.)

Things seem to be going well for Miyuki Watanabe. This latest advance in her career, which has received a lot of publicity, comes in the wake of the semi-nude photo book that she released last year.

Check out the lesbian sex scene in Netflix show Followers with Elaiza Ikeda and singer KOM_I

A new Japanese show on Netflix, Followers, created by Mika Ninagawa, features a lesbian sex scene between Elaiza Ikeda and KOM_I.

Let’s not get too excited about this. After all, Filipino-Japanese actress Elaiza Ikeda has done some sexy scenes before, as we once blogged about. Here she is looking busty in Sion Sono’s The Virgin Psychics (based on the manga Minna! Esper Dayo!) from 2015.

Singer KOM_I has previously done two explicit nude shoots where she left basically nothing to the imagination. In comparison, the scene is Followers is pretty tame, giving us just some bare backs and girl-on-girl kissing. That said, KOM_I’s butt looks great framed in a black thong.

The nine-episode series also stars Miki Nakatani (playing a role that is evidently meant to stand in for Ninagawa herself), Mari Natsuki, Tadanobu Asano, and Mika Nakashima.

Netflix is enjoying quite a run with its Japanese programming, having landed a great (adult-themed and R-rated) hit with the first series of The Naked Director.

Famed as a photographer, Mika Ninagawa directed the Sakuran, which was about courtesans in the Edo era but had almost no nudity (just a glimpse of Yoshino Kimura’s nipples, if we recall). A more recent effort was Helter Skelter, which had a pretty good nude sex scene with the now-disgraced Erika Sawajiri (another haafu).

Incidentally, her father was Yukio Ninagawa, best known as a theatre director but who directed some films, not least the erotic Snakes and Earrings, which featured some great sex scenes and nudity with Yuriko Yoshitaka at the start of her career. But it’s also kind of creepy to think of the director, by then quite an old guy, persuading this very young actress to shed her clothes for his lens.

What is it like to rent a girlfriend in Japan?

Girlfriend and boyfriend “rental” services are one of those “wacky Japan” narrative favorites, though they do actually exist. They are also not as crazy or sleazy as they might sound — after all, if you want someone to date and then sleep with, there are countless prostitution services or “compensated dating” clubs out there.

So what’s different about this kind of rental service? What do you get for your money?

Asian Boss, the awesome YouTube channel behind interviews with porn stars Emiri Okazaki and Taka Kato, tried out one service to demonstrate what it is like.

Host (and handsome haafu) Max takes “Shihomi” on a date in Tokyo one rainy day.

Shihomi is actually a model whose real name is Minami Aoyama. She has a minor following on Instagram.

Either way, for the duration of the “date,” Max and Minami call each other Bae and Shiho-chan. Things start off a bit awkwardly, not least because of the umbrellas, but then they start to relax and enjoy themselves.

Minami/Shihomi can speak some English and, with a little help from her phone, is able to communicate with Max, though her choice of fish semen as a dish for lunch threatens to derail the date at one point.

During their meal in a Shibuya cafe they talk in detail about how the girlfriend rental system works and the rules, so there are lots of insights here. Sorry to disappoint any cynical readers but there is no happy ending to finish off the date.

By way of comparison, Asian Boss also rented a girlfriend through a similar service in China last year.

New survey shows Japanese women’s breasts are getting bigger, especially in previously flat-chested Saitama

The state of Japanese breasts is something we here at Tokyo Kinky are frequently thinking about, whether it’s scouring the latest data or observing with our roaming eye whatever we see on the streets of this fine city.

A “bust map” survey by female-friendly adult brand Love Cosme of 33,813 women from prefectures across Japan has confirmed, once again and yet again, that busts are indeed getting larger.

Here is what the map of average cup sizes in Japan looks like.

japanese bust cup average breast size map

We spotted some evaluation of the survey over on clickbait-courters Sora News 24, though their explanation of the survey findings is pretty good here.

The data, collected between January and August of last year, showed a D-cup bust to be the most common, with that being the average size in 27 prefectures, including Tokyo, Hiroshima, and Nagano. Osaka and Kanagawa were among the four prefectures at the top of the scale with an E average, while Kyoto and Nara were among the six at the smallest end with B-cup busts. For the remaining 10 prefectures, such as Hokkaido and Aichi, C-cup breasts were the most common, and no prefecture came out of the survey with an A-cup bust representing the study participants.

The complete list of results is:

B-cup: Fukui, Kyoto, Nara, Shiga, Oita, Saga

C-cup: Aichi, Gifu, Hokkaido, Ibaragi, Ishikawa, Kumamoto, Mie, Miyagi, Tochigi, Yamanashi

D-cup: Akita, Aomori, Ehime, Fukushima, Gunma, Hiroshima, Hyogo, Iwate, Kagawa, Kagoshima, Kochi, Miyazaki, Nagano, Nagasaki, Niigata, Okayama, Okinawa, Saitama, Shimane, Shizuoka, Tokushima, Tokyo, Tottori, Toyama, Wakayama, Yamagata, Yamaguchi

E-cup: Chiba, Kanagawa, Fukuoka, Osaka

What, no A cup? All right, Japanese busts are often smaller — but not THAT small, it seems, anymore. Saitama had an A-cup average (a veritable hinnyu) in a 2012 survey by Love Cosme, but has increased significantly to a D cup in the intervening years. Hooray for Saitama! Now that’s what we call evolution.

Here is the map in comparison with the 2012 data. Red shows an increase in average cup size; blue shows a decrease; gray shows no change.

Many previously small-busted prefectures experienced a growth, almost as if ladies are trying to increase their cup sizes!

Comparing the most recent results to those from Love Cosme’s 2012 study (which involved 24,819 participants), seven prefectures saw their average sizes go down and 10 stayed the same, with Kyoto experiencing the largest reduction by going from an E in 2012 to a B in 2018, the only three-size drop. Previously D-cup Fukui, Nara, and Shizuoka all moved down two sizes, as did Gifu, shifting from E to C.

On the other hand, the bust size for 30 prefectures grew compared to the 2012 statistics. The largest gain occurred in Saitama, Tokyo’s neighbor to the north, which in 2012 was the only prefecture with an A-cup average. As of the most recent study, though, Saitama has grown to a D bust, the largest gain of any single prefecture (something Love Cosme credits to an increase in average hours of sleep per night for Saitama teen girls over the past few years).

Tokyo, where we are based, experienced only a modest gain from C to D. Moreover, cup sizes in ten prefectures actually had the same results as the 2012 survey. So if you live in Aichi, Fukushima, Hiroshima, Ibaragi, Ishikawa, Mie, Niigata, Okayama, Oita, or Saga, you have probably had a consistent six years of similarly sized breasts!

We should also keep in mind, amid all this fanfare and celebration, that research seems to show Japanese men prefer smaller breasts. So, ladies of Saitama, don’t get too big in the chest if you want to stay popular with the guys.

Looks like the end of days for Tumblr and the older content world – and any chance Tumblr had of being profitable via advertising, but that’s their call.

As with everyone else, I don’t know yet where we’ll all land, but Twitter @cuckoldmarriage is at least a likely bet for now.
