Inhaltsangabe: A history of Japanese sexual mores and a survey of modern Japanese love, marriage and family life. The author explores the subject starting with creation myths and ending with present-day love hotels, soap ladies, porn videos and sex shows. He discusses the Japanese attitude to bringing up children, marriage, work and alcohol. What emerges is a race refeshingly guilt-free about sex, but at the same time mother-fixated, voyeuristic, obsessed with the female genitalia and whose national pastime is peering beneath skirts.
From the Publisher: To the Western mind, the Japanese attitude toward sex is at once bizarrely structured yet refreshingly frank. In a land where marriages can still be arranged and a woman¹s place is most definitely in the home, love hotels dot the landscape and late-night television is brazenly risqué by Western standards. Censorship is perverse: no pubic hair may be shown, yet violent porno-comics featuring gang-rape and mutilation are openly read on the train. Homosexuality has a long, venerable history of tolerance, but an office worker ‹ gay or not ‹ will forgo promotion if he doesn¹t marry. These are just some of the paradoxes explored in this provocative book. Written nearly a decade ago, but still timely, this is an eye-opening examination of Japanese love, marriage, and eroticism.
