Fetishes Part 6 – Nyotaimori Sushi and Naked Women

April 6, 2012


Fetish. The psychological definition of a fetish is any object or non-genital part of the body that causes a habitual erotic response or fixation.

Paraphilia is a biomedical term used to describe sexual arousal to objects, situations, or individuals that are not part of normative stimulation and that may cause distress or serious problems for the paraphiliac or persons associated with him or her. A paraphilia involves sexual arousal and gratification towards sexual behavior that is atypical and extreme. –Wikipedia

This is part 6 in my weird fetish series. Click here for part 5-Mechanophilia, here for part 4- Formicophilia, here for part 3- Trichophilia, here for part 2 Dacryphilia– and here for part 1- Nasophilia. Today it’s about Technophile.

Nyotaimori (Japanese: 女体盛り, “female body presentation”), often referred to as “body sushi”, is the practice of serving sashimi or sushi from the body of a woman, typically naked. Nantaimori (Japanese: 男体盛り) refers to the same practice using a male model. This subdivision of food play is originally an obscure Japanese practice not common in Japanese culture but that has attracted considerable international media attention. –Wikipedia

Some say it’s an art and others a novelty. Underneath it all there was and is a fetish quality to it and has been since the ancient ritual has begun. For people who love sushi and love mixing food with sex it is an erotic pleasurable experience.

Nyotaimori is the “art” or “fetish” of being aroused eating sushi off of the body of a naked woman or man depending on the party, customer and restaurant and it is one of many fetishes that involve sex and food. Many people enjoy combining these two parts of life because they are both very pleasurable, so you get double the enjoyment by putting them together. There are many restaurants in the U.S. and throughout Europe who use naked models with strategically placed dishes or leaves to serve sushi off of; you just have to enjoy your sushi at body temperature.

There are also body preparation requirements. The body must be thoroughly cleaned with anti-biotic, hypo-allergenic and fragrance free soap. This is followed by splashes of cold water to withstand the cold sushi and keep it cold as long as possible. Some governments require a layer of plastic between the body and the sushi due to sanitation laws and I’m sure this is not as enjoyable for the fetishist.

I’ sure I would try it for the sheer novelty of it like trying any novelty restaurant. I think I’ve said this before, as many kinks and fetishes I do have, mixing food with sex is one thing I can’t stomach.

Although a lot of Nyotaimori is experienced through dinner parties and the hiring of models that can stand still, there are reastaurants as well.

Here’s a website I found called Sushi Nomads http://www.sushinomads.com/sushi-blog/nyotaimori-and-nantaimori-naked-sushi

For all of your Nyotaimori needs.

Japanese School Uniforms are a Changin’

August 11, 2010

New School Uniforms in Mitaka, Tokyo, Japan. Mitaka is a city within Tokyo with a population of 175, 712. It was founded in 1950 and has one official Universiy and High School. Somewhere in a hard to find location there is a “clothing optional” college. It’s more of a pre- college similar to county colleges in America. You get an equivalent of an associate’s degree.

Ren Watanabe, principal and headmaster, founded the school Fuki Bunka consisting mostly of high school graduates that aren’t quite ready for a University in 2006 and the enrollment has been increasing since. It’s offers college preparation courses and some under graduate programs like any other school except the dress code is different. Although the teachers are required to remain clothed while teaching, the students are free to go to class and walk around the campus nude. It’s not a requirement for the students so some stay clothed mostly the males. It is required for all students to wear shoes for health reasons.

“I feel that nudity relaxes most students and they tend to learn more when not worrying about what to wear.” Says Ren Watanabe.

It’s not a real well known school and breaks no laws so those that do know about it let the school do their thing. It seems that people in Japan are more open to new ideas even in their educational system.

“At first, I thought there might be a problem with the young men staring at the girls or try to have sex with them but so far they are very polite. Luckily we live in a free yet reserved and polite country.” Says Ren.

When students were asked why they attended such a school the responses were mostly because they like the freedom of being nude while learning. The school also offers classes that others don’t like human development, film, animation and has a strong music department.

“I like it here better than other schools not just because I don’t have to bother with clothes but because the teachers know how to teach. They work on an individual basis if they have to. They show that they care about the students.” Says second year student Teiko Uchida.

I’m not sure how well I would have done in a college like that but it’s worked for four years at Fuki Banka with students moving on to bigger universities and graduating with honors.

Maybe next time I’m in Japan I’ll visit Mitaka and try and audit a class at Fuki Banka.
