Pink Japan: Contemporary Sex Culture
From cuisine, music, fashion, technology to anime, Japan's cultural influences on the West is immense. In many ways the Japanese erotic cultures are also influencing today's Western tastes. Yet the daily realities of Japan's gender relations, sexual habits, sexual consumer culture and gay/lesbian/transgendered world remain hidden to us, creating an aura of mystique. Enjoy a great talk with fun photos, presented by international sexuality educator, Midori.
About Midori:Midori experienced a rich and paradoxical up bringing. She was born and raised in Japan, educated in the public school system with its traditions and arts while her all-female, feminist intellectual household provided the foundations for radical, independent thinking. Currently she is a full time writer and educator on sexuality and intimacy with emphasis on alternative sexuality. She weaves together many threads of her cultures and upbringing to form the unique tapestry of her art and expression.
She has authored several non-fiction books, including "Wild Side Sex", "Seductive Art of Japanese Bondage" as well as many columns and magazine articles. "Master Han's Daughter", a dark collection of cyberpunk stories, is her first fictional book, although many readers are familiar with her short stories in anthologies and other publications.
