Drinkable turds have saved the fortunes of troubled Japanese municipalities, according to Weekly Playboy (3/9). Many Japanese municipalities like tiny Tenkawa in a rustic part of Nara Prefecture were hit hard by the London Convention, which bans the dumping of human waste in oceans from July 2007.

But, thanks to Kunihiko Yamamoto, the president of an Osaka water purification company, they can now pooh-pooh their problems with a scatological soda.

About the only things to have toughened up in postwar Japan, according to Shukan Post (8/22-29), are shoes and women.

And nowhere is the empowerment of gals more evident than when it comes to sexual ethos as the typically demure prewar submissive woman gave way to a predatory vixen, according to Japan’s top-selling weekly, which cites a poll of 300 young office workers at the country’s top companies that shows nearly two-thirds have had at least more than five sex partners.

Outbound travel has been hit hard this year by such factors as the war on Iraq and the SARS outbreak, but plenty of Japanese have headed overseas on underground tours involving sex, slavery and savagery, according to Tokusatsu Shinsengumi.Japanese used to their peaceful lives in their sheltered archipelago would be horrified to learn what goes on in developing countries.Many overseas travelers are on the lookout for something new and, in poorer parts of the world, they’re likely to find locals willing to supply them with illegal options to their tours provided the price is right.Take Indonesia, the magazine suggests as an example.

WaiWai: Russian Sex Roulette in Japan

This article is reproduced from the discontinued, but much loved Mainichi Waiwai column by Ryann Connell

Russian Roulette is filled with inherent dangers, but Japanese schoolgirls have apparently devised a version where there are plenty of shots fired, but none of them are bullets, according to Hanashi no Channel (2/20).

Instead of a single bullet being loaded into a revolver chamber and the trigger pulled until it lets off with a blast, Russian Sex Roulette, the schoolgirls’ derivative game, sees the girls allow any number of men to unleash their weapons in her chamber.

Note: Full Japanese translation of this article is available below, entitled:「エロ寿司屋で舌なめずりするようなご馳走」

Nothing like the fragrance of fresh fish to stimulate one’s appetite, right guys? We’re talking, of course, about sushi, one of the more popular comestibles to grace the Japanese table at mealtimes.

But only in Japan, perhaps, could one find such an creative means to appeal to two distinctly different physical urges. To find out more, a reporter for That’s Dan (February) journeys to Otaru, the Hokkaido port city on the sea of Japan, where he has heard an underground establishment is offering an erotic twist to this traditional fare. In fact, that’s the name of the shop: Ero Sushi-ya.

WaiWai: New vibrating condom unlocks the power of “ki”

Is a vibrating condom a humdinger? Apparently so, according to an otherwise skeptical Shukan Post (9/6), which notes that Japanese sex lives are becoming like sports where those who are least proficient often have the best tools to at least make them look the part.

Top Japanese prophylactic manufacturer Sagami Industries Co. has unsheathed the latest weapon in its already formidable armory. Marketed by Ii Project, which refers to it as a “world’s first revolutionary product,” it’s a condom that apparently vibrates slightly by drawing on the body’s ki, it’s life-giving energy source. And it’s apparently selling like hotcakes.

Though it’s been a tough slug for the past decade or so, Noughties Japan still leads the world when it comes to such technological wonders as supertankers, cars, household electronics, audio-visual equipment and, especially, life-sized figurines.

Fever Dolls are sold only over the Internet, but with 300 of the life-sized mannequins having been bought in recent months, they are, according to Weekly Playboy (7/30), something of a surprise hit.

WaiWai: Fast food sends schoolgirls into sexual feeding frenzy

Note: Japanese translation added at bottom.

A tendency for getting their lips around a Whopper has turned Japanese schoolgirls into Nippon’s naughtiest nymphomaniacs, according to Shukan Gendai (6/29). Kazuo Sakai, head of the Stress Hibiya Clinic in Tokyo, says fast food is to blame for the promiscuous behavior of today’s schoolgirls.

“Sex addiction, which involves having sex with numerous different partners over a short period, is related to bulimia. Fast food so popular among young people is absorbed unnaturally quickly by the body, making it easy for bulimia to develop,” Sakai tells Shukan Gendai. “Bulimia makes it harder to control the central nervous system and a chain reaction makes it easier to develop other addictions. Sex addiction is a case in point.”

WaiWai: More mums going down, to ensure grades go up!

This article is reproduced from the discontinued, but much loved Mainichi Waiwai column by Ryann Connell. Read more about this at the bottom of this article.

Special note: One of the right-wing Japanese sites that helped bring Waiwai down translated this article fully into Japanese. But, I think they got the title wrong.. They translated it as, 「母は、成績を落とさないために堕落する」, but we would’ve gone with, 「母は、成績を上げるために堕落する」, or just plainly, 「母は、成績を落とさないためにフェラをする」. The full Japanese translation can be found at the bottom of this page.

Dad comes home from an “adult toy store” and hands his wife a chastity belt. She nods and turns to the couple’s 15-year-old son. “Let’s go,” she says. They disappear into the boy’s bedroom. The story begins with Japan’s obsessive exam culture. A boy’s whole future can depend on the senior high school he gets into. Some mothers will do anything to make sure their junior high school sons pass the all-determining entrance exams. Anything? Pretty nearly.

Hey guys, wanna go “nampa?” It can be more fun than the rumba, and if you learn the steps right, you can score with a girl.

Nampa is slang for picking up girls. Nothing new about that, but thanks to the Internet, guys who had to struggle alone, and suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous women that refuse to stop when a total stranger accosts them on the street, can now lick each other’s wounds electronically and in the flesh. A nationwide network of self-avowed pick-up artists linked via nampa Web sites has blossomed, Spa! (8/29) reports.
