It is also the case that in human endeavors, like in physics, equal and opposite reactions occur. For all their enlightened nature and zen simplicity and advanced spirituality, the Japanese are also masters of some of the most depraved and twisted sexual fetishes, for example, tentacle porn. The Japanese gobble up hentai movies of women being sodomized by monsters with penis-tentacles. They love this freaky shit! They also enjoy making twisted images of nubile young women engaging in bizarre masturbation. Japan is the future, and the future looks kinky.
