In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Free Reads -- Pictures of Sex

Friedrich --

I'm not sure I'd have guessed the figure was quite this high... Ryann Connell reports in the Mainichi Daily News that three-quarters of Japanese people between the ages of 20 and 35 admit to having been photographed or videotaped having sex. The story is readable here. Sample passage:

"There's no doubt resistance to appearing in sex scenes on film has weakened among a growing number of girls over the past two or three years. In fact, many probably regard being filmed having sex as normal. Ten years ago, barely anybody would have even thought about it," cameraman Shozo Furusawa tells Spa!

Best,

Michael

You know, of course, what you're setting yourselves up for with that title...

OK, I admit it: It's a shameless and cheap ploy to increase traffic. Every now and then circumstances oblige us to stoop so low. Well, maybe we kind of like stooping so low.

Come to think of it, traffic's a little slow today. Time to do something about it.

I wouldn't believe anything Mainichi's Wai-Wai had to say. They are the sexy Japanese equivalent of the Weekly World News.

Mind you, one of my friends' nude spreads just came out here this month in Japan. She did it for free.

Hey Tom, Thanks for the tip, although now I feel crushed. I'll be warier in the future. But, come to think of it, given all the digital gimmicks we have these days, it'd be odd if lots and lots of people weren't filming each other having sex, or at least being nude, these days. Which reminds me: years ago, an executive I know told me that he wound up sitting next to an executive from Polaroid on some long airplane flight. After a few drinks, the Polaroid guy loosened up and said, in a confiding tone, Don't kid yourself, we know why most people buy one of our cameras. And he winked.
