Apologise over sex work comments, women demand

Apologise over sex work comments, women demand | Sex History | Scoop.it

Women in Japan's island chain of Okinawa have demanded an apology from an outspoken Japanese politician who suggested US troops there make use of its thriving sex industry.

 

The comments from Osaka Mayor Toru Hashimoto came after he said "comfort women" – who most historians agree were pressed into sexual slavery for the Japanese imperial army during World War II – served a "necessary" role by keeping soldiers in line.

 

"Regardless of whether it is war-time or not, a view to use women as a tool [to let out sexual frustration] is intolerable," said Masako Ishimine, a senior member of a local women's body, quoted by the Okinawa Times, the day after Mr Hashimoto spoke.

 

"Does he mean women should simply take it because men work hard?"

 

The outrage came on the day Okinawa marked the 41st anniversary of its reversion to Japan at the end of post-WWII US occupation and after comments on history that provoked ire in South Korea and China.

 

Up to 200,000 women from Korea, China, the Philippines and elsewhere were forcibly drafted into brothels catering to the Japanese military in territories occupied by Japan during WWII, according to many mainstream historians.

"Champagne for Breakfast" (1980)

"Champagne for Breakfast" (1980) | Sex History | Scoop.it
At some point in the career of seemingly every porn movie director there comes the desire to aspire to something more meaningful. The problem is that most such directors don't possess the know-how or have the opportunities to become auteurs. Thus, they work within the parameters of their own genre in an attempt to elevate it to something more than just mindless rolls between the sheets. One of the more ambitious directors of 70s and 80s adult fillms was Chris Warfield,  a former actor whose 1980 production of "Champagne for Breakfast" has been released on DVD by Vinegar Syndrome. It's easy to dismiss any porn flick from any era but we at Cinema Retro try to objectively evaluate even these lesser contributions to the film industry because, as with mainstream cinema, there are vast differences in the quality of productions- and retro porn represents an important aspect of pop culture, even if you are among those who loathe such films on a moral basis.

It Happened in Climax, Nevada: Dean Martin's Kiss Me, Stupid

It Happened in Climax, Nevada: Dean Martin's Kiss Me, Stupid | Sex History | Scoop.it

This movie isn’t always as appreciated as it ought to be. People too often hear the name “Billy Wilder” and expect a ‘screwball comedy’ but completely miss the deeper, darker tones… Kiss Me, Stupid is one of those films. 


People may chuckle & hoot at the idea of Dean playing “Dino,” a caricature of the drinking, skirt-chasing Dean Martin persona, and the comedy of errors involving mistaken identities, but what they fail to see is black comedy teeth that takes a bite out of the music industry, marriage, and even sex...
