particular interest. In 1971, this genre began to gain
popularity and featured Samson, dedicated to chubby men, and
G-Men, featuring men of a more muscular stature.

People who sell or distribute obscene content are viewed as
criminals, and the display of genitalia is considered highly
unfavourable (even for educational purposes). For this reason,
much pornography from Japan is censored using pixels, or
“mosaics” and this is one of the greatest facts out there.

10. The Machine for Un-censoring

censoring. This happened very recently, in 2014.

Everyone knows that in the Western world of religion, porn is
considered highly sinful. In Japan, however, gods and goddesses
are depicted as very in touch with their sexual nature, which
is viewed as an innate feature of these beings. For this
reason, religion and pornography don’t clash in Japan.

8. Japanese Porn Is Purported to
Decrease Violence

and Ayako Uchiyama believe that the rise of pornographic videos
and magazines in Japan (starting in the 1970s and continuing
onwards) creates a decrease in reported sexual crimes.
