DVD is porn

Yesterday, talking with Ale, he said to me: “Have you realized that DVD is a synonym for porn in Japan?”. And yes, it is a synonym, at list in a “street” context. If you walking around in any Japan city streets and you see a sign that says only “DVD”, then it is for sure a porn movie store.

This is a “DVD” store.

Now you know, if you come to Japan beware of “DVD” 😉 Can you find the DVD in this picture?

    “Beware of “DVD” ” Don’t you mean “Embrace the DVD”?

    And “stamina” means garlic and/or egg.

    Hi there Kirai!
    It’s Jackai –I usually read the Spanish version, you know, but I noticed a little mistake here… When you wrote, ‘And yes, it is a synonym, AT LIST in a “street” context’, I guess you mean at least? Sorry for the comment, just wanted to help. 😉

    […] Recorded this video from a screen in the entrance of a DVD store in Osaka. Would you go inside this DVD store after watching this video in the entrance? […]

    its a while since i have been in Tokyo but the Japanese culture and their normally attitude about sex is loveworthy. By the way, japanese girls are the most beautiful AND educated women in the world for me. Where else do you find beauty and intelligence together.
    I want met a japanese girl again, if u like contact me

    Personally, I get turned on visually by erotica, but not porn. Erotica is more arty, more tasteful… and more suggestive yet mysterious. Hardcore and graphic porn doesn’t do much for me cos there’s no mystery or creativity to it – its just like looking at a piece of meat, nothing sexy about that.
