Sex and the Japanese: The Sensual Side of Japan
Sex and the Japanese provides a broad look at the changing concepts of sexuality in Japanese culture. From the days of concubines and geishas to the present, sex and sexuality in Japan have been more openly discussed and available than in the West—due for the most part to Shinto, the native religion of Japan that recognizes, celebrates and respects the sensual side of life.
The sexual attitudes and customs of present-day Japan continue to reflect this ancient wisdom in ways that are both practical and imaginative. Sex and the Japanese reveals the ins and outs of these attitudes and customs, from the institutions of "love hotels" and erotic massage parlors, weekend trysts at hot spring spas, the use of cell phones and the Internet, to well-publicized date clubs and escort services.
