Sometime ago a friend who was aware of my interest in Lovecraft (oh behave!) and his tentacled terrors brought back a comic from Japan which seemed to consist of nothing but young ladies being 'attacked' by tentacles and lengthy dialog bubbles in Japanese.

When I asked said lady to translate the dialog she told me it consisted entirely of 'Oooh' and 'aaaah' in Japanese. Roll Eyes

Jeez is that a genuine product?? (Does quick Google) Yes it is!! Apparently it's hugely popular at Anime/Hentai conventions and regularly sells out!!!
I don't consider myself a prude and I'm fairly broad minded but...that is in seriously bad taste.
What  sort of company brings out a soft drink, with a name that is clearly a pun on 'tentacle rape' and actually has a scared looking Anime schoolgirl being menaced by a tentacle on the label!!?? WTF?

This image is even worse!

Clearly the Japanese interest in women and tentacles goes way back and continues.

haha, octopussy  Cheesy

If I understand it correctly, it was invented to show explicit scenes without actually showing male/female intercourse. Tentacle porn was a way to bend the rules of law. Apparently it became a part of the culture.

Us westerners are eating dairy products. The Japanese are probably thinking: what is WRONG with those people?  Wink

Saint Ambrose ones said: Si fueris Romae, Romano vivito more. Si eleifend, Octopoda in modo diligamus.
When in Rome, do as the Romans do. When in Japan make love like an octopus.

That didn't happen to be Urotsukidōji Legend of the overfiend was it? I seam to remember a few comics matching that description.

That Cephalopod sex imagery just reminded me... whatever happened to the sex toy thread?

I'm sorry I can't check that right now, I'm at work.  Wink

We westerners aren't clean of images like this. Marquis de Sade comes to mind. With stories about bestiality, necrophilia, incest and anything a dirty mind can imagine. The only difference is that our society nipped it in the bud, while Japanese society saw it as a good alternative to bend the law. We disguised it into fairytale stories, legends and myths. During the Victorian era, we managed to disguise dirty talk with slang. I think there is a thread about it somewhere here on BG.

This thread reminds me of an American family I overheard on a trip to Paris. Father, mother, son and daughter (Both in their early teens). In Paris there are a lot of statues of naked people. Not havin' it off or anything, just standing or sitting. The mother was constantly diverting the kids eyes from the "filth" (mother's actual words). The father, clearly agitated by mother's prudeness, said:"let's go inside, to the Louvre." I thought:"yeah right, in a museum there aren't displays of nudity. Rococo and Renaissance had no nudity what so ever."

Kind if silly but family specific, I would say. Depends on specific Religion and customs. My grandparents (a 1940's couple who raised me) had no problem taking me into the Lido and Moulin Rouge shows in 1982, when I was  11 years old.  Yep,  I liked the semi-naked ladies - the most perfect bodies I had seen or have seen ever since.

No they didn't call naked statues "filth" (actually that is the very first time I have ever heard of anyone ever saying European naked sculptures were "filth" - and I live in the USA).  That must have been a particularly prudish and conservative family.

It was, J. Wilhelm. It was an anecdote to show that not all people are the same. What for one person is outrageous might be common or acceptable for the other. I'm for a live and let live. As long as is just thoughts and not involving some person or some animal without mutual consent, I'm (more or less) fine with it.
And art displays all kinds of thoughts and feelings. From landscapes to religions to every day things to the weird and repulsive. As long as nobody or no animal was hurt by making the art.

A young girl raped by a COW, not a steer or a bull? Is that Lesbian Bestiality we are talking about?? I'm sorry, I'm Texan, I pay attention to these kinds of bovine details - there's a difference  Grin

I imagine so.  There is a great deal of human nature that is negated by culture, and as such that varies from place to place.  Even within families.  In my family my mother is the ultra liberal, Asian Wisdom, New Age, tree-hugger meditator-hippie type and my uncle (her brother) is the ultra conservative Tom Clancy (RIP), Hummer driving, Democrat hating -type.  Interesting family reunions.

If we are to keep this post in "Textual" I think it stands to reason that we can increase the intellectual content of the conversation.


The erotic artwork Mr. Maets refers to is a style called Shunga, or erotic ‘spring pictures’, pupular in Japan between about 1600 and 1900. The particular woodblock print shown by Mr. Maets, according to the BBC, is known in the West as The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife (!) and was created in 1814 by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849).

(ref. http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20131003-filth-or-fine-art)

Starting this week, the British Museum in London will open an exhibition that encompasses more than 150 works of shunga.  The exhibition will remain open from 3 October 2013 through to 5 January 2014.  So I'm sure we won't have any uncouth  Steampunks witnessing such display of "filth" will we?  Roll Eyes  (I can see a Steampunk stampede in the museum now).  It does make for interesting Steampunk Erotica, perhaps we need to notify the Tokyo Steampunk Society about the potential of this melding of Steampunk and Japanese icons.

The image was from an article in the Huffington Post about an exhibit.  Should have included that in the original.  This image seemed the most steampunk as it had the Octopus.  Some of the other images shown where definitely NSFW, but also not very steampunk.

But perhaps suitable for Japanese Airship crew pinup posters?  Grin  Think about it.  Erotic prints from the Edo and Meiji periods.  Why not?

After disembarking off the coast of Spain, a Japanese airship sailor caught his wife in the act, and this poor fellow lost his life.  You can see the sharp fatal blow imparted with a Katana

Would that make a difference? (I don't follow, maybe I'm being dense about this)
