Adventures in Learning Japanese

Some people posted up this scan of a DVD cover for a Japanese porn featuring cockroaches, and wondered where they could get a copy, and what it was all about. I figured this was the perfect opportunity to use my Japanese skills for the betterment of mankind!

While I didn't know most of the kanji on the cover, and thus couldn't do an accurate Google search (「ゴキブリ」 just means "cockroach", and yields lots of sites about people who like cockroaches in a non-sexual way), I did notice that the company that produced this DVD is SOFT DEMAND, as can be seen in the lower right hand corner on the back on the CD. SOFT DEMAND's site, at first, looked like a "respectable" (by North American standards) business site, perhaps for a television station, with (40 year old male) anchors (in business suits) and hosts and stuff, whose profiles you can view. When I randomly stumbled on a page that featured the text "18+" and 「はい」 and 「いいえ」, I knew I found what I had been looking for.

SOFT DEMAND's adult DVD section lets you browse their selections by date of release, genre, series, maker or ranking. Unfortunately, their site uses a lot of Javascript and cookies and is a bitch to navigate, and pretty difficult to trick it into letting itself get translated by web-translators. Luckily, they have a search box, so I just put 「ゴキブリ」 in there, and only two results come up. The first one is the cockroach DVD, properly titled 「~食虫少女2~ ゴキブリを喰う女」 which I'd translate as "~Insectivore Virgin 2~ Women Eating Cockroaches". This implies there was an "Insectivore Virgin 1", and the DVD description does mention that this is the second in a series, but I didn't see the first DVD on the site.

The other search result that came up is 「アンチ・ノーマルセックス」 which means "Anti-normal sex". That one looks like just a bunch of miscelaneous fetishes, something to do with "water, ice, lotion and soy sauce", some bondage, humiliation, violence, hair cutting and burning. In addition to bukkake, there seems to be Japanese fetishes I've never heard of like "anata", "binta" and "surikogi". "Cockroach" does appear in the description, but I'm not sure if it's eating cockroaches or what.

Anyway, for the curious, here's a translation of the genre list, from left to right, top to bottom. Maybe this is something those interested in Japanese porn should memorize (or at least bookmark) as a handy translation guide?

フェラチオ
fellatio.
ザーメン
"seed", i.e. semen.
手コキ
"hand koki", which I'm guessing means hand job.
レイプ
rape.
ぶっかけ
Everyone's favorite "bukkake".
痴漢
"molesters", as in guys who molest girls riding on the subway. Interestingly enough, the kanjis mean "Silly Chinese people".
淫語
The kanjis mean "obscene language", but the DVDs here don't seem particularly geared towards dirty talking or anything. Curiously enough, it looks like a lot of anime (as well as a few live actions) fall under this category.
痴女
"dumb girl", i.e. girls who are willing to do anything sexual.
単体
"single substance", which I think means it's a DVD which stars only one woman.
熟女
"ripe women", i.e. older women, 40 years or older.
人妻
housewives.
美少女
"beautiful girl". SOFT DEMAND has 0 DVDs under this category, so your guess is as good as mine as to what this fetish entails. Someone suggested it's girls who are just beautiful, but have no apparent "skill" for sex videos.
ロリータ
lolita.
制服
uniform.
露出
exhibitionism.
盗撮
voyeurism.
素人
amateur.
"sound". SOFT DEMAND only has 1 DVD under this category, and it's called "Sounds of Sex best selection". You put on headphones and hear AV Idols in 3D.
ちんちん研究
"penis study". Two DVDs, and it looks like it's a bunch of women talking (in a frank and straightforward manner) about sex, talk-show style.
レズ
lesbian.
ディープキス
french kiss.
ナンパ
"nanpa", which is videos about guys seducing girls. This implies that the girl isn't aware of the fact that she's being filmed.
逆ナンパ
"inverse nanpa", I guess this would be videos about girls seducing guys.
巨乳・おっぱい
huge breasts.
お尻
ass.
アナル
anal.
おしっこ
peeing.
潮吹き
Literally, "tide blowing", as in what a whale does. I think this is female ejaculation.
ハメ撮り
"hamedori", filming the girl while having sex with her. I.e. the guy who's holding the camera, and the guy who's having sex with the girl is the same guy.
コスプレ
cosplay. The subtle nuance between this and the "uniform" fetish is probably a difficult one to explain.
スカトロ
scat.
近親相姦
incest.
面接・オーディション
"Interview & Auditons". From reading the descriptions of the 3 DVDs in this category, it looks like these are DVDs in which the theme consists of a girl showing up for a (non-sex related) job interview, and then has sex with the interviewer to ensure that she will be hired.
全裸
"nude". Mostly girls performing sports, gymnastics, etc. in the nude.
リクエスト
"request". 0 DVDs in this category.
企画モノ
"planning stuff". I think these are DVDs in which some sort of large intricate plan is made. Like maybe a girl has to run a several kilometer marathon nude.
How to
0 DVDs in this category.
作品集
a collection of works, as in anthologies.
SM・BD
S&M, Bondage.
輪姦
gang rape.
教師
teacher.
女優
actress.
陵辱
abuse.
フェチ
fetish.
嬲り
humiliation.
中出し
cuming inside a girl.
羞恥
humiliation specifically from shyness.
アニメ
anime.

The company's name is "Soft On Demand", actually. It's very famous and successfull porn company, which distributes porns and stuff. I heard that they sometimes even use their own employees to shoot porns. (Female employees I think.) So you might wanna consider applying for this company.

Ringohime, are you implying that their standards are very low, since they use their own staff, and therefore Neb will be hired for sure? or that Neb might want to work for them in order to have free sex and get paid as well (as a staff member)? Either way, I see a win-win situation.

1.I can't think of many guys who would mind looking at random naked Japanese girls. 2.They don't use employees because their standard is low. It follows into the "????" "planned stuff"category, and it's about office affair fettish, amateur girls fettish, and novelty. 3.I totally think they should expand the business abroad, and if they do, they obviously need English speakers at least to do that. 5.There is already enough supply of porn actors,(but never enough for girls) so I don't think they would bother using some random dudes in the company. So I say it's not so much of win-win situation!

That reminds me... I think Japanese porn industry needs a few very good (and good looking if possible) porn actors, and they should get rid of the gross fat old ones permanently. Porn is something everyone come across at least once in their life, so the first impression shouldn't be so traumatic.

Non-Japanese porns are really bad. Maybe I should seriously think about starting to distribute Japanese porn in North America. I might make myself a millionnaire. Screw the schoolwork!
