Eyeball Licking Is The New Second Base In Japan
Like sucking on toes, only dirtier

First base is kissing. Sloppy first is kissing with tongue. And after saliva has been sufficiently swapped, the standard is to get started with the boob touching. At least, that’s what I thought. Leave it up to the Japanese to come up with a new, more bizarre second base that is equal parts repulsive and unhygienic. Eyeball licking, also known as worming or oculolinctus, is just what it sounds looks like. One person tongues the other’s eyeball. (FYI, I am squirming in my seat as I type this.) Keep reading »

  • A Japanese court has upheld a law that married couples must both use the last name of one of the partners. However, nearly 96 percent of the time, it is the woman who takes her husband’s surname. A recent lawsuit filed by five people sought to allow newlyweds to keep their “maiden” names if they so choose, but the court said no. Lame, Japan, lame. [Salon]
  • A Utah gun lobbyist was arrested for domestic violence and trespassing after driving his Army surplus vehicle on his ex-wife’s front lawn and blasting an air horn. The man’s lawyer defended him by saying he was “having fun in his big boy toy.” Intimidating your ex-wife and family is “having fun”? Okay. [Raw Story]

3-D Doll

Do you love yourself? How much? Enough to have a lifesized 3-D printed doll made of yourself? Because you can do that now. A place aptly named the Clone Factory, in Tokyo, Japan, says it can make a doll from any human. Are you having nightmares yet?

Being an egomaniac does not come cheap, though. To have a doll made with your creepy likeness, it’ll cost around $2,000 (it sounds worse when you hear that equals 138,000 yen). Obviously, though, money is no object when it comes to you loving … yourself. Keep reading »

IndieGoGo is a fundraising platform that helps people generate money for “passion projects.” On the homepage of IndieGoGo’s site, there is a campaign to help a young girl with brittle bones. Another aims to fund an indie film project. And yet another is in support of an ocean clean up feasibility study. IndieGoGo explains itself as “a crowdfunding platform where people who want to raise money can create fundraising campaigns to tell their story and get the word out. IndieGoGo is also a place to discover what people all over the world are passionate about and how to get involved.” No, there is nothing that says the funding raised via IndieGoGo must be used for some altruistic project or entrepreneurial end, however that seems to be implicitly understood by people who start campaigns on the site. Successful projects are ones that are able to capture the hearts and minds of potential funders because they provide a worthwhile service, or help those in need.

Sure, you can try to get funding for any old thing via IndieGoGo. But should you? Should you try and get funding for a total pisser of a vacay to Japan just because you really want to go to Japan and hang out with your buddy there? I’m gonna go with no. And yet! This person feels like it’s totally cool to expect people to fund her vacation. Keep reading »

Oh Tatsujiro Fukasawa, you do know a woman’s weakness, don’t you? Fukasawa, 40, attempted to kill a female colleague he’d been stalking by pouring hydrofluoric acid into her shoes. Hydrofluoric acid acid can be absorbed via the skin and cause everything from skin abrasions to internal organ failure. The woman realized something was wrong when she developed gangrene on her left foot. It’s not known how much permanent damage the acid has caused.

For his part, Fukasawa denies the charges. Police are also investigating what they believe may be a related case: the same woman said she was forced to go to the hospital this past October after experiencing pain while wearing a pair of boots. [Japan Times]

Tokyo Disney Hosts Its First Same-Sex Wedding

“My partner Hiroko and I just held a gay wedding at the Tokyo Disney Resort. Even Mickey and Minnie are here to celebrate with us!”

Koyuki Higashi shared the above photo and the happy news of her wedding ceremony at the Tokyo Disney Resort in a tweet that has amassed nearly 7,000 retweets and sparked an article in The New York Times. While Mickey and Minnie blessed the couple, unfortunately the government doesn’t agree: gay marriage is not currently legal in Japan. Still, a huge congrats to Koyuki and Hiroko, and let’s hope it’s not too long before marriage equality is a reality around the world. [Twitter via NYT]

  • The Japanese pop star Minami Minegishi (from the girl group AKB48) shaved her head and issued a public apology after she was caught by paparazzi leaving a boy’s house after a supposed hookup. Members of AKB48 are strictly not allowed to date or behave suggestively in public. She harshly berates herself in her apology, saying: “As [a] first-generation member of AKB48, the group that has formed in 2005, it’s my responsibility to always behave as a good role model to juniors. I deeply regret what I did this time. It was a thoughtless deed and I was completely lacking self-awareness as a senior member.” Um, this girl group sounds kind of like a cult. [The Gloss]

My roommate and I joke that her cat is kind of our joint boyfriend. Like a human boyfriend, Boo is very affectionate, loves to pick food off our plates, and throws the occasional temper tantrum which can only be quelled with cooing and snuggles.

Hmm. I just re-read that last sentence and it screams “CAT LADY.” Maybe it’s time to leave Boo alone and make like a Japanese woman instead: I will find myself a digital boyfriend from a “role-playing love game”! You know, like a Tamagotchi … with a penis. Keep reading »

The reasons to visit Tokyo just keep getting more and more bountiful. I can go to the naked robot burlesque restaurant or to Love Joule, a “love and sex bar dedicated to women.” It’s described as a place women “can openly discuss masturbation.” Behind the bar, instead of liquor bottles, are rows of vibrators, lube and other female friendly toys. The bar is part of a trend going on in Japan to do away with the taboo surrounding female masturbation, sex toys and female sexuality in general. To ensure that it’s a safe space for women, mann aren’t permitted in the bar unless accompanied by a female partner.

This sounds like a great idea in theory, but I have have a number of logistical questions that need to be addressed: Keep reading »

Wake up, you're snoring!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my hands on the new Polar Bear pillow that will wake me up every five minutes with a slap on the face. This new device called “Jukusui-kun,” meaning “Deep Sleep,” was designed by a Japanese professor to help sufferers of sleep apnea stop snoring throughout the night. A polar bear-shaped pulse-oxygen meter is attached to the snorer’s hand while the person lays his or her head on another polar bear with a microphone attached. Once you’re sound asleep, the device will recognize when your oxygen level has dropped and your noise level has increased, resulting in a little tap on the head if you’re snoring gets out of hand. Whether you love sleeping with polar bears, or you are no longer interested in a good night’s rest, make sure to get your claws on this ingenious device when (if) it hits U.S. stores!  [Jezebel]
