Japanese Man Petitions to Marry Manga Character

 Manga Girl

A Japanese man has enlisted hundreds of people in a campaign to allow marriages between humans and cartoon characters, saying he feels more at ease in the “two-dimensional world.”

Sigh. What the heck, let him have his fun, what’s it going to hurt? But society should get to determine who he marries. Let’s see, it won’t be a hot chick in a bathing suit or short skirt or one that that wields a sword. How about a manga cat or snake?

Yahoo News has the details.

Confessions of a Naked Sushi Model

 Sushi Model

Vanity Fair has an interesting piece from a woman that dove head first into naked sushi modeling recently. Not familiar with this Japanese practice? Read on:

Utterly exposed before a group of strangers, I do my best to fight off the impending toe cramp and a fierce desire to wince. This is all very new to me. You see, it’s my first time as a naked body sushi model.

In fairness, you might wonder how one becomes a naked body sushi model. More specifically, you might wonder how one with zero experience of undressing in public becomes a naked body sushi model.
