Celebrating fertility and the “power” of the penis – This is also called Shinto fertility festival

How about we book a day to worship the penis? Well, that is what the people of Kawasaki in Japan have made; they decided to celebrate fertility and the “power” of the penis.


It is also called Shinto fertility festival of Shinto beliefs of use of the opening of the nature and deliberate simplicity. Shinto is a Japanese religion, it emphasizes ritual practices to execute diligently to establish a connection between Japan and present its ancient past. This interesting ritual takes place annually on the first Sunday of April, with all sorts of phallic ongoing activities.

There is also a mikoshi (portable shrine) parade many giant phallus noon. Transvestites men wear “Elizabeth Mikoshi” pink offered by a drag queen club called Elizabeth. The high profits from the event go in search of HIV.

Here are some backstory. Kanayama Shrine was popular with sex workers of local tea houses praying for protection against sexually transmitted diseases. Two gods of mining and blacksmiths, and Kanayamahiko Kanayamahime, are entrenched in what may seem quite unrelated phallus. But the Japanese legend says they healed the Shinto goddess Izanami after she gave birth to a god of fire. People prayed for STDs, birth regarding etc. because of this myth. Another story tells of a devil fell in love with a woman and hidden in her vagina, biting the penis of her husband newlyweds twice. She then sought the help of a blacksmith, who made him a metal phallus. He broke the teeth of the devil and sent it for good. They later enshrined in Kanayama shrine as a kind of commemoration.

Why do people like bondage? The psychology of bondage and BDSM

Bondage changes the balance of power. A stronger partner can be rendered helpless, which in itself can be an unusual and responsible experience. A naturally active person made passive or vice versa. This also opens new horizons of touch, emotional possibilities, sensual and imaginative. If I had to pick one reason for the introduction of slavery into another relationship “vanilla”, it would probably be it. Do not underestimate how this unique and powerful experience can be the first round of time.

Many of us, especially women, are raised with the idea of ​​guilt about sex, or at least with respect to certain acts or behaviors: “nice girls do not do that” mentality . Bondage can be used to atone for this guilt by providing the convenient excuse of being tied up and therefore “incapable” of resisting, safe word not resist. Thus, the social constraints are removed: freedom from bondage!

The strings can hug the body like the embrace of a lover creating a sense that is safe and comforting. Often, once the most restrictive slavery was abolished, the sub hesitate to abandon the safety harness.

The strings can be used to stroke during link or unlink when they are pulled through the body and in particular the most sensitive areas. It can be used to cover the entire spectrum of pleasure to pain. fraying rope can be used for running and tickle. One or more strands of rope can provide everything a whip effectively fortune.
Breast and genital bondage increases sensitivity, pleasure and pain, pulling on the tight skin. It also tends to present the target of your attention quite prominently and conveniently.

The placement of nodes may cause direct stimulation of the clitoris, perineum, anus, etc. This occurs either by touch or movement. gently twisting, pulling or pressing strategic strings allows you to provide your own input. You quickly notice that particular nodes are favorites to fight against. The application of a vibrator to the ropes or knots can really increase the effect. The surprise is that the use of a vibrator on places seemingly innocuous can have dramatic consequences, because the rope transmits fine vibrations.

The experience can be very meditative. This can be deepened if the sub Dom and take time to connect embracing quietly, relaxation and synchronization of breathing. meditative techniques can be used. A good scene will generate a strong link between Dom and under.

We are used to being able to gesticulate or scratch our own itches. Not being able to move is an unusual experience for most of us. It focuses the mind in a unique way. It is not uncommon for a sub to be in a dream state and relaxed after a session, known as “rope stoned” or in spaced. It is often said that a bondage session is very relaxing and de-stressing.

Bondage, especially the Japanese form, Shibari, can be considered an art form. It can accentuate the beauty of the human body. The results can be superb, a fact appreciated not only by the Dom and sub, but also the spectators.

Slavery and submission are naturally free. Being tied up and helpless in the hands of Dom added edge to the game and is very symbolic of submission. The feeling of being made to feel exposed and available is particularly acute in positions such as open leg ties.

Like most areas of BDSM, exercise requires a sufficient level of confidence. In fact, as you allow yourself to be made powerless to resist, more confidence than required for most activities. One advantage of BDSM games is that they help to develop deeper levels of trust with your partner.

The easement itself can be used as a control tool. The rope, in particular junctions or nodes on the back and chest, can make great “handles” that allow a slot control very dominant manner. It can also be used as leader. When a post is used to tie the wrists and ankles style leg open, it can be used to (carefully) back a person sitting in a very vulnerable way into the air position.

The effect to be bound in an unbalanced position, while being supported by all the top by a safety rope safety can be quite dramatic psychologically, especially if blindfolded.

For many, the kick is in the call of their fetish chosen method used. For example, body bags, straight-jackets or chastity devices.
It is also essential to role play. After all, without some form of restraint many games, such prisoner or kidnap scenarios, it would miss the major element and what fun would that be? Of course, the appropriate restrictions are themselves important in the creation of fantasy.


Bondage can be a prelude to or as a facilitator of the SM play, and not an end in its own right. However, it can also be used to inflict discomfort, both physically and mentally, for example uncomfortable or humiliating positions.
Challenge and escape

There is also something that appeals to Houdini in many people, the challenge and the struggle to try to escape. Jim Stewart, author and founder of Fetters, is a big proponent of this aspect of holding games. In his book “I like to be tied up – so what? “It explores a wide range of ingenious scenarios and constraints, including modified motorcycle clothing and diving equipment. Many games involve his stamina and psychologically difficult, eg kidnapping, military interrogation, some are even competitive. Many aficionados are fighting against their very erotic constraints, but for others it is simply a game for adults.

Flying near a crying baby – Japan Airlines unveils tool to tackle horror of screaming babies

Japan Map of airline seats shows where children under two years are during their flights. This movement, part smile support the travel service organization, is intended to benefit all stakeholders: it keeps the kids that about passengers who are not bothered by screaming and other disturbances, and puts passengers who want nothing to do with a baby difficult aisles away from young families who are sick and tired of looks angry.

Being stuck on a long-haul flight to a baby earshot crying can be a thing of the past for passengers on Japan Airlines (JAL), after the carrier unveiled an online booking tool that shows where toddlers will sit.

When passengers with children aged between eight days and two years reserve their seat, a child’s icon automatically appears on the security plan, alerting other passengers who are not yet choose their seats.

Japan Airlines was quick to point out that the new feature does not guarantee that passengers would be out of earshot of a child screaming.

The icon does not appear if the passengers had booked their flight through a third party or were part of a tour group, or if there was a last minute change of aircraft, the website of the airline said .

At least one other Japanese airline does the same thing for customers. An All Nippon Airways spokesman said its security maps showed where the children sit “for a while.”

Japan Airlines and other companies have yet to find a way to anticipate the seat reservations for snorers series and passengers fully recline their seats for in-flight meals.

Made in USA, Japan

We are sure that you have all heard of one urban legend: apparently the Japanese changed the name of a city in Japan to USA so that they could legally export goods to the US and hide their original place. This legend is driven by the fact that in postwar America, Made in Japan became synonymous with poorly made cheap items. Of course it is ridiculous to think that American customs will officially only ignore imported products that are clearly labeled misleading.

An interesting addition to this story is that Sony Corporation deliberately made their “Made in Japan” label so small that Americans would not realize that it was a Japanese company. A large number of Sony shipments were refused by Customs officers because the label was smaller than it should be.

Usa (市 市 Usa-shi) is a city located in the prefecture of Ōita, Japan. The city was founded on April 1, 1967. On March 31, 2005, the cities of Ajimu and Innai (both located in the United States District) were merged into the United States. Usa is known for being the location of Usa Jingū, the main sanctuary of all Hachiman shrines in Japan.

Made in USA claims that fulfill the requirements explain the level, amount or type of content or domestic processing of a product; This indicates that the product is not entirely from within the country. Example: “60% U.S. content” “Made in the US and imported parts.”

How to always win rock, paper, scissors

In 2005, the sluggish Japanese economy convinced Takashi Hishiyama, president of electronics company Maspro Denkoh, to sell a collection of French impressionist painting companies. These include the main Cezanne landscape and inferior works by Sisley, van Gogh, and Picasso. Both Christie and Sotheby gave presentations to Hishiyama who heralded their expertise and ability to reach the highest auction price. In Hashiyama’s assessment, the presentation was equally convincing. To solve this problem, he proposed playing a rock, paper, scissors.

“The client is very serious about this,” said vice chairman Christie Jonathan Rendell, “so we are also very serious about that.” The money is also serious. Maspro Denkoh’s collection is worth $ 20 million. Both Christie and Sotheby quickly agreed to the game.

If you never rest at school, rock, paper, scissors (RPS) is a playground game that is as popular in the US and Britain as it is in Japan (at least until the 18th century). In a signal, two players simultaneously make one of three signatures, chosen at will: rock (a fist); paper (hands open, face down, with fingers together); or scissors (partial fist with the index and middle fingers). Easy to remember rules determine winners: “Rock break scissors, paper cut scissors, rock cover paper.” In other words, the player who chooses rock beat is the one who chooses scissors; scissors in turn beat the paper; paper beats rock. This generates a winner every time the two players choose differently. When they choose the same sign, it is a series.

rock paper scissors

“There is some discussion” about strategy, said Blake Koh of Sotheby’s. “But this is a coincidence, so we really don’t think too much about it. We have no strategy in mind. ”

In contrast, Kanae Ishibashi, president of Christie’s Japan, began researching the RPS strategy on the internet. You may or may not be surprised to learn that many bad things have been written on the game. Ishibashi rested when Nicholas Maclean, director of impressionist and modern Christie art, said that his 11-year-old twin daughter, Alice and Flora, played games at school almost every day.

Alice’s advice is “Everyone knows you always start with scissors.” Flora supports this, saying, “Rock is too clear … Because they are beginners, scissors are definitely the safest.” The two girls also agreed that, if there were scissors, the next choice would be scissors again – precisely because “everyone expects you to choose stones.”

Ishibashi went to the meeting with this strategy, while the Sotheby’s representative left without any strategy at all. People at the auction house sat facing each other at the conference table, flanked by Maspro accountants. To avoid ambiguity, the players write their choices on a piece of paper. A Maspro executive opened the slip. Ishibashi had chosen scissors, and Sotheby’s representative had chosen the paper. Scissors cut paper, and Christie won.

In early May 2005, Christie auctioned four paintings for $ 17.8 million, resulting in a $ 1.9 million auction house.
