Japan. Country romantic dreams of millions of people from all corners of the globe. Since it opened the eyes of Europeans, was folded about her myths and legends, telling about the extraordinary reserves of gold, strange animals, strange customs, about the samurai ideal of masculinity — and the geisha — the standard of femininity. Over time, people learned that no gold bullion, nor the wonderful animals in Japan no. Have only geishas and Samurais. But it turned out that this is enough for hundreds of years to haunt the imagination of the inhabitants of the planet, seeking the ideal in everything. First of all in his personal life.
The travellers who first visited in Japan, has always been told about the nature, the political structure and the state of defence of that land, and (not least!) about the strange habits of the Japanese in the intimate sphere — they were so amazing. Geisha, courtesan-and after reaching zero, the monks who have sex with men and erotic prints-Shunga has always horrified and fascinated the Europeans. And if in the sixteenth century the Christian West surely knew that the Gentiles-the Japanese are utterly devoid of shame and of their need to “reforge”, forcing to return to the framework of Christian morality, it is closer to the XX century the Europeans appeared questionable in its own right — is too tempting looked and percivaliana until the end of the Japanese “Libertines” and “slut”.
Since that time hearts of white foreigners could not beat quietly at the word “Japan”. Arrogant and confident that their scale of values may be only true, they decided that soon the secrets of the intimate sphere of Japanese life unfold in front of them and they will change this life as easily as you changed the appearance of the Japanese dressed in their European costumes and dresses. Driven by desire, vain “red barbarians” has opened the era of voluptuous descriptions of Japanese sexual mores in travel magazines, novels enthusiastic about geisha and scientific research erotic culture, admiring these morals and condemning them at the same time.
Very soon it became clear that in the framework of conventional ideas about erotica, and even Eastern, Japanese realities don’t fit. It turned out for example that the Japanese are much more willing to talk about sex than doing it. The relationship between men and women looked simple and natural, but were actually confusing and complex. And the more the Europeans tried to figure it out, the harder it became to get to the truth. Japanese erotic culture was ancient, multi-dimensional and thus never stood still, eluding comprehension. Sane judgment and scientific analysis easily superseded bright, favorite salinasca hungry for Western people, legends that geisha and prostitutes were in one piece, and the role of men in family life was limited to a readiness at any moment to commit Hara-Kiri.
Decades passed, and Japan has become one of the most developed countries in the world, but has leaped forward, and without ceasing to be incomprehensible and mysterious. The rest of the world over the sexual revolution, about the issues of family and marriage began to speak without any hesitation, and it suddenly seemed that the Japanese, which began to forget partially, learned how to discuss, draw and shoot it almost better than anyone. Finally the Japanese society opened to all comers the secrets of his intimate life, but. from this it is clearer still did not. The shock, which for the past several hundred years have cast foreigners especially the Japanese national sex became even deeper. It turned out that even the famous and mysterious geisha Shunga — sheer nonsense, compared with what the Japanese are doing now. Animated films, displaying of which, it seems, even the screen turns red, saloons with sophisticated adaptations for “perverts”, “love hotels”, a strange family relationships — all of it, shamelessly open other people’s eyes, not only once again brought Europeans deep into horror, but once again were forced to discover his desire for the Japanese and the Japanese, who clearly had the right to the title “the Most sexual creatures in the Universe.”
The Internet, globalization, teenage sexual revolution brought the desire of whites to the limit. And here already Russian girls-journalist write about what’s even on the map of the Japanese Islands they feel are giant curved phallus and they do not find the strength to resist the “call of love”, willing to surrender met in Moscow with the Japanese. Pimply boys-nick is not able to hide excitement at the sight of big-eyed girls “a La Sailormoon”, not less pimply nick-girls changing their sexual orientation, for example the same characters, grown men fumble with the mouse on the world wide web in the hope of seeing photos of Japanese prostitutes sophisticated, and Mature women dream of a tireless and generous lovers of the samurai clan. And even the literal translation of the name of the country — kanji “Nihon” — began to sound like something erotic: “the Country of the root of the sun”, “sun Country root”.
However, this is only the effect of returning to basics: in 1926, the Russian writer Boris Pilnyak wrote a wonderful book, “the Roots of the Japanese sun.” Erotic roots he has devoted perhaps the most inspirational lines and honestly admitted that the Japanese culture of sex was a powerful shock for him:
“The philosophy of sex, among all Nations rests on metaphysics, and I shall never forget the porcelain silence of dawn in the village, to become Blue. This porcelain dawn, without bacon, all alone, must have been the only time so, in a kimono, I went out from the yard of peasant house and went to the mountains. I already wrote about it: there on the hill, I saw the temple on the side of the temple sat a boy, but more often in trees around the temple and the kneeling woman, the woman hugged clinophobia stone statue, her face was enthusiastic. I saw tainstvennaya, something she rarely got to see even the Japanese, I saw a woman worshipped the phallus, is seen tainstvennaya that there is in human nature.
. Then, at dawn, I looked at this woman dressed in kimono, Obi they wore, with rudiments of wings butterfly on the back, obutu in wooden benches, and then it became clear to me that the Millennium of peace male culture is completely re-educated woman, not only psychologically and in life, but even anthropologically: even anthropologically type of Japanese woman in all gentleness, in humility, in prettiness, in slow movements and shyness, this type of woman, like a moth colors on rabbit movements. Even the wives of the professors, the European-educated people, met me at the knees. — Onna Daigaku is a great lesson for women — Japanese Domostroy — forever teaches us to obey father, husband, son, never jealous, never to contradict, never to blame. And in every shop sold three monkeys, a symbol of female virtue: monkey, zatknutsa ears; monkey, eyes closed; monkey, zajavka mouth. So decided to floor philosophy — Buddhism, feudalism, East, — and this philosophy of sex is still alive”  .
