Here’s a slice of legal trivia: At around 5 p.m. one evening in September last year, celebrity manager (let’s call him Mr. A), followed a woman (Ms. B) into her office in the trendy Gangnam area of Seoul. Once inside he began to pleasure himself directly in front of her.

When Ms. B saw the man stood in the doorway performing the unsightly act, she naturally screamed and began throwing things at him. After about 30 seconds of screaming and being showered at with office supplies, Mr. A abruptly stopped what he was doing and ran away.

He didn’t get far though. Police picked him up promptly after Ms. B notified them and arrested him for indecent assault. This would seem like an open and shut case, right?

Apparently not.

Tenga is a Japanese brand of stylish male sex toys made by a company of the same name. As sleek as Tenga products look, however, most people aren’t going to line their collection up on their bookshelf. Even if it’s common sense that practically everyone masturbates, it’s still embarrassing to have other people stumble upon evidence of your alone time.

And that’s the beauty of Tenga Express, a limited-time service where you can have a cute Japanese university girl hand-deliver a Tenaga masturbation aid. What better way to show someone you care than by sending a complete stranger to their home to implicitly say, “Hey, I know what you do at home, and I support that.”

Orthopedic body pillows can be the key to a good night’s rest for those who find it difficult to maintain good posture while they sleep. They also provide physical comfort that can help ease the mind after a stressful day.

Some Japanese otaku, seeking a slightly different kind of comfort from their body pillows, stuff them in pillowcases covered in the image of popular anime or erotic video game characters. A number of them go so far as to “form relationships” with these body pillows, boldly claiming them as their girlfriends and romanticizing themselves as “2-D lovers”.

Yet one major drawback of these body pillow girlfriends (you know, aside the fact that they’re pillows) is that you can’t get to third base with them. Until now, that is: Pillow-lovers everywhere, rejoice! Japanese adult product maker G PROJECT has created a body pillow you can have sex with!

When I was a high school student, my biology teacher – an ex-nurse – used to regale the class with tales from her time working in hospitals.  It was then that I realized that nurses are treasure troves of bizarre stories, mostly involving foreign objects inserted into people’s own nether regions.

This story out of China, however, trumps all of her anatomical yarns in terms of absurdity and ability make you cringe.

Much has been made about a female masturbation bar that recently opened in Tokyo.  But looking at their gun racks of state-of-the-art self-pleasuring technology, one has to wonder if the inequality has swung the other way.

Despite all the advances made in pleasuring devices made for women, guys are still left with pool jets, central vacuum outlets and socks.  Well fellas, there are some companies looking out for you too.

Tenga is one such designer, devoted to cutting down more morning wood than an Amazonian rainforest logging contractor.  In fact their efforts have earned them their own fan-based independently made comic series, otherwise known as dōjinshi.  Behold the future of masturbation.  Behold Tenga Hero.

Alright guys, brace yourselves because I’m going to lay a big one on you: women masturbate (rumor has it they burp and pass gas too, but researchers still lack conclusive evidence).

While masturbation is nothing to be ashamed about, it can still be a touchy subject for many women. However, in Japan, perceptions toward female masturbation have changed greatly over the past 5-10 years as an increasing number of women are beginning to feel comfortable talking about the subject openly.
