Why have young people in Japan stopped having sex? | World news | The Observer

by sbrothier
Ai Aoyama is a sex and relationship counsellor who works out of her narrow three-storey home on a Tokyo back street. Her first name means "love" in Japanese, and is a keepsake from her earlier days as a professional dominatrix. Back then, about 15 years ago, she was Queen Ai, or Queen Love, and she did "all the usual things" like tying people up and dripping hot wax on their nipples. Her work today, she says, is far more challenging. Aoyama, 52, is trying to cure what Japan's media calls sekkusu shinai shokogun, or "celibacy syndrome".

Sexe et porno : la fabrique des désirs (2/4) - Attache-moi si tu peux: imaginaires érotiques du monde - Information - France Culture

by sbrothier & 1 other
Nous nous intéresserons aujourd’hui tout particulièrement au Japon. Du hentai – le manga érotique – aux films bondage, la culture nippone est peut-être l’une des plus prolifiques en matière de production érotique pornographique. Cette culture érotique ne s’arrête d’ailleurs pas à la production cinématographique : le Japon est aussi célèbre pour être le pays des distributeurs de petites culottes usagées (interdits il y a quelques années même si certains sex shops en vendent encore). Comment comprendre cet érotisme, ces fantasmes très particuliers, où la jeunesse et la candeur de jeunes filles pubères se mélangent à l’ultra-violence de certaines mises en scènes sado-masochistes ? L’érotisme « à la japonaise » est-il compréhensible pour un Occidental au-delà de l’étonnement ou de la fascination ?

Mutsugoto is an interactive installation that invites couples to experience an intimate communication over a distance. Begin by laying on the bed and wearing the special ring.  As you relax and think about your partner, gently move your hand around your body. These movements are traced on your own body as well as your partner laying in the other bed. Twinkling spots give a hint of where your partner is drawing.  If you follow your partner’s movements and your strokes cross, the lines will react with each other and reflect your synchrony.

Satellite of Love: Vanishing Beauty of Japanese Love Hotels » Design You Trust – Design Blog and Community

by sbrothier
We Japanese are generally reputed to be “good at copying,” yet for some reason we seem to exercise the highest level of erotic originality in the world. From sopu “soaplands” (bathhouses) and imekura “image clubs” (costume role-playing) and deriheru “delivery health” (call-a-massage), mainstays of the sex-hire industry, to hi-tech adult toys, to lust-and-violence manga comics and pick-a-girl fuzoku magazines, the Japanese creative spirit would seem to be fixated on things erotic. And of course, there’s interior design’s erotic “true north”, the love hotel.

Japanese Love Hotels by Lagoi & Lace - Fun Fun Fun!

Traditionally – and this still holds true in many rural areas of Japan – the whole extended family would all live together under one roof. The same house with paper thin walls hosted husband, wife, her mother and his sister, children and elders, and so on… The only way couples could have sex (with privacy) was to check in to a love hotel.

Kyoichi Tsuzuki: Antipodes 11 | White Cube

Tokyo has always been known for its 'love hotels', elaborately designed spaces where denizens of one of the most densely populated cities on earth can steal a few moments intimacy in exotic surroundings. Some of the city's brothels are just as imaginatively kitted out. The imekura or 'image-clubs' are imitations of everyday spaces that offer clients an everyday fantasy complete with a woman who plays the part – a secretary in a boardroom, a schoolgirl in a classroom, a commuter on a subway, and so on. For a customer, imekura girl is merely a character who appears in one's internal pornography landscape. In return for that, he happily pays the price of 20,000 yen per 'play'. With that budget, anyone anywhere in Japan would be able to get an average hard-core prostitution service, but there are some men who rather choose to immerse themselves in a false fantasy world. They make phone calls on weekday mornings, make reservations with their favourite girls, and visit image-clubs. In a transient modern city where anything seems architecturally possible, the ultimate erotic fantasy is shown to be that of everyday life

Japanese Love Hotels: Protecting Privacy for Private Encounters

by sbrothier
This paper explores a cultural curiosity–Japanese “love hotels.” These have historical sociological roots deep in the culture. But even with a religious and cultural acceptance of sex in Japan, privacy is still an important aspect of the love hotel business. The ways in which love hotels protect patrons’ privacy is shown here to be a primary part of the service encounter. The importance of privacy poses that the need for sexual privacy may be rooted deep in our evolutionary biology. This is an important lesson for the field of marketing, especially for those in the sex-related industries.

Japan has always had a humpback-whale sized soft spot for kitsch: Hello Kitty meets Star Wars figurines, Godzilla shower toys, and Gundam-themed cafes, for an example. We also know that they have strange sleeping habits: they seem to be able to fall into microsleep in microseconds standing up in sardine-packed trains, and with capsule hotel rooms going for just $30 a night, you can pretend you've been buried alive in a plastic coffin.

Partners Meng Jin and Fang Er’s first collaborative photography project, Love Hotel explores the two artists’ ongoing interest in urban life, architecture, memory and found objects, and the inter-relationship between physical buildings, objects and their social context. The couple worked on-site within the framework of 3-hour ’rest’ periods in various ’short-stay’ hotels creating improvised, spontaneous sculpture works with the existing objects found in the rented love hotel rooms. Slightly amorphous structures, the rearranged inanimate objects hint at entangled anthropomorphic creations in this fantasy space devoid of actual human presence.

After seeing Josh off to the airport, I took the Yamomote line to Shibuya in search of a love hotel for the backdrop of an up coming shoot.  I walked right to the heart of Love Hill, so many hotels, with room after room, so many stories must exist behind all those doors.  As I wondered through the narrow streets, I looked at different lit of panels on the walls, each room, most occupied, but others weren’t, each with a different style, a photographers paradise.

Le documentaire présente le genre, son importance au sein de l’industrie japonaise (le pinku pouvait représenter 50% des films produits selon les années !!), la naissance du genre et enfin son principal intérêt - comment certains réalisateurs ont profité de ces films pour aborder leurs thèmes personnels (Koji Wakamatsu, Tatsumi Kumashiro).

Sauvage, violent et sans limite, le Japon reste bien l’Empire des sens. Du cinéma à la littérature en passant par la photographie, l'art se vautre dans les vices du libertinage.
