Japanese Porn FAQ

Where to Buy Our DVDs

Introduction from Wikipedia:

Creative Commons License The religious and social taboo against nudity has historically been weaker in Japan than in the West: “pillow books” detailing sexual acts were widely sold in the Edo era (1603 – 1868), and women and men routinely worked in the nude and bathed in public up to, and even after, the Meiji Restoration in 1868. While in Western society nudity has typically been a taboo, that idea entered Japan only after Meiji-era and how deep that idea is rooted is argued.

Japanese erotica has many of the same themes as its western counterpart such as heterosexual and homosexual intercourse, group sex, and sexual bondage. Similarly to western erotica, the Japanese version may also portray various sexual fetishes such as foot fetishism, or a focus on a certain type of clothing such as uniforms or costumes as comic or video game characters.

Japanese pornographic culture is more widely accepted as part of mainstream media in comparison to the West. Thus in many cases, scenes acceptable to Japanese audiences are unacceptable in other countries.

Japanese porn video (abbreviated as JAV for “Japanese adult video”) also caters to many more fetishes than might be imagined (or thought legal) by non-Japanese. Schoolgirl or uniform themed AV dovetails with the “non-consensual” genre—rape—are common. SM, rope bondage, bestiality, virgins, internal male climax or cream-pies, lesbians, along with more eccentric fetishes (soap, office ladies, game shows) are all covered.

Many videos have a title that may suggest that they use minors or the actual recording of a crime, but no titles that are circulated with the approval of Eirin (a self-censor organization of productions) break any laws.

In Japan, under Article 175 of the Criminal Code of Japan people who sell or distribute obscene materials can be punished by fines or imprisonment. Article 175 was included in the original document in 1907 and remains relatively unchanged. Finding a workable definition for obscene has sparked much controversy over the last century. It is not uncommon for pictorial magazines to depict nude women with their genitalia airbrushed over in black, and video pornography routinely depicts explicit sex scenes with the participants’ genitalia obscured by mosaics. Until the 1990s, the entire pubic region, including hair, was deemed obscene and unpublishable.

JAV covers wide themes and its only limit is censorship laws. Many genres of Japanese erotica evolved because of these censorship laws. Tentacle rape, an animated portrayal of rape fantasies involving a human female and a science fiction-like creature, emerged as an alternative to depicting the penis in the 1980s, drawing inspiration from the tentacled creatures that started appearing in Japanese erotica in the Edo era.

Many video production companies belong to ethical associations which provide guidance on what is acceptable and what is not. Child pornography is banned with criminal punishment in Japan since 1999.

Please Note: Nude Pet Girls only features Japanese content that is legal and ethical in both Japan and the United States.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is all Japanese porn censored?
Nearly 100% of it is, in accordance with Japanese law. (The remainder is either illegal under Japanese law, or produced overseas using Japanese actors and actresses–or in very rare cases, re-released specifically for Western audiences.) It is widely believed that these restrictions are responsible for the unparalleled creativity and kinkiness of Japanese adult video.

How exactly is it censored?
Typically, the exterior genital region is obscured by pixelation for the entire movie. (However, it is not considered obscene to show the anus in particular, so that area is often not obscured!)

Are these Japanese DVDs available in English?
No. Although it is common to use some English language on the cover, there are no English subtitles or audio tracks in the films. Furthermore, the discs may be region-coded, and therefore unplayable on certain brands of US DVD players.

Where can I purchase the Japanese DVDs featured on Nude Pet Girls?
Japanese producers are rarely willing to accept direct orders from overseas customers. Instead, DVDs are obtained through English-speaking resellers, the oldest and largest of which is our sponsor, J-List.

When we are able to find an American or worldwide retailer for a specific DVD that we feature, we will include a link in the blog post. If there is no link, then unfortunately we cannot help you.
