, an American who has been living in Japan for many years, made this comment:
"And I live in a place that shares the fascination [sex]. Nudity is commonplace in manga and anime, even those aimed at kids. In December, when it's calendar buying time, the latest nude calendars are proudly hung from the walls of bookstores. Porn is read openly on trains and in raamen shops, the sex trade is alive and well, and love hotels are available everywhere should you feel the need to have sex with someone you're with for a couple of hours."
And yet we cry, beat our chests, and sue each other
when a breast is glimpsed during a show filled with violence, dancers bumping and grinding against each other, and ads which hammer us over the head with the message that you need beer to have fun.
