Grab yourself a look at South Korea’s most significant cultural exports at the moment – charming girl group pop, insanely hot soda spokesmodels, and blockbuster action movies – and you’d have no idea that beneath the shiny, tech-savvy, economically booming surface of the nation lay a groundswell of people devoted to glorifying their pubic hair. Sure, “The muff is back,” has been bandied about the porn industry for a while now, but with Laurie Vargas retired and Bobbi Starr mostly behind the camera these days, pubic hair isn’t anywhere near as prominent as it was thought to be becoming. In South Korea, however…
So keen are many Korean women on the idea of sporting a voluminous pubic muff that they’re using a procedure called “bush grafting” to artificially add extra follicles down below, follicles grafted from their scalps. As detailed by Refinery29, Korean pubic hirsutism is rooted in the traditional belief that heavy follicles are a sign of fertility and a healthy sexual well-being. The bush grafting is not so traditional, however, with a study conducted by Seoul’s Arumdaun Nara Dermatologic and Plastic Surgery Clinic revealing that 74% of women undergoing the procedure did it because of “a sense of inferiority to the same sex.” In other words, other women with more lush pubic hair made ’em feel crappy. The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery reports that bush grafting has risen a remarkable 160% between 2010 and 2012 and with the procedure starting at $2,000, that’s a lot of expensive merkins roaming the banks of the Han River.
Meanwhile, back in the USA, it’s still bald or near-bald female pubic regions as far as the eye can see. Surely there’s a comfortable middle ground to be found, perhaps after extensive diplomatic talks between our two nations. Hell, maybe we can rope Kim Jong-un into the discussions and find out once and for all if pubic hair in North Korea is as uniform and militarized as everything else.
So, untold buckets of ice-water have been dumped on the heads of celebrities and nobodies alike but there’s millions of people out there who still don’t know what the fuck an ALS even is! Clearly, that Lou Gehrig guy, sick though he may be, is going about raising awareness the absolute wrong way. Clearly he should be groping Japanese women’s breasts on television.
Unofficially dubbed ‘Boob Aid’ by its fans and sticking by its motto “Making a social contribution while enjoying the erotic,” a charity event organized by Stop!AIDS and broadcast on Sky Perfect TV ran for 24 straight hours and featured little more than a dozen Japanese pornstars lining up and inviting fans to grope and fondle their breasts. The only catch, only those donating money to the campaign could cop a feel. Boob Aid aimed to raise funds and awareness for Japan’s AIDS sufferers and to promote safe sex practices aimed at prevention further transmission of the virus, which currently affects approximately 8,100 Japanese.
Adult star Rina Serina spoke to Tokyo Sports newspaper prior to the event, saying “I’m really looking forward to lots of people fondling my boobs. I never thought my boobs could contribute to society.” Iku Sakuragi, another performer baring her breasts for AIDS sufferers, added “It’s for charity. Squeeze them, donate money. Let’s be happy!” Can’t argue with that, can ya? In any case, the 2,000 attendees couldn’t argue with such a worthy cause and novel promotion, flocking to the event and laying their hands on twelve pairs of pornstar breasts.
See footage from last year’s event below and, please, before you try your hand at starting a charity fund-raising event or (God forbid) meme, do try to incorporate nudity to an excessive degree.
Ever since marijuana became a legally acceptable treatment for numerous medical conditions, pot-related entrepreneurs have launched dozens of absurd products. Whiz Khalifa has a line of 100% hemp rolling papers, there’s a Snoop Dogg endorsed vaporizer pen, Tumblr exhibitionists are buying the hell out of Black Milk’s marijuana leaf leggings, and your local dispensary, compassionate care club or provisioning center likely has for sale soaps, salves, balms and trail mix containing potent doses of THC. But now there’s a cannabis product to tantalize an substantially different set of physical stimulus receptors.
Foria, a personal lubricant infused with cannabis, now aims to bring the floaty, giggly, snack-munching sensations you feel after a blunt, doobie, dutchie, dab, bong rip, or vape sesh to the vulvae, labium, clitorii, and vaginal canal of the female stoner. Describing its product as “a therapeutic sensual enhancement oil designed for female pleasure,” the folks at Foria stress that results vary from person to person and you’ll simply have to try the “blend of nourishing liquid coconut oil and lab-tested cannabis oil from California-grown marijuana” to find out if it works for you (or your lady).
Fellas, Foria has a use for you too: oral ingestion. Much like tinctures and hash oil, Foria, a liquid intended not as a direct sexual lubricant but as a pre-lube for use about 30 minutes prior to arousal and activity, can be taken orally to pleasurable effect. The main purpose, however, of this expensive little bottle – Foria runs $80 for a 30ml bottle – is to directly enhance the natural sensations of arousal a woman feels in her nether regions and, in many cases, throughout her entire body. A testimonial from alleged Foria users shows little reservation in singing the product’s praises. Whether you or your lady will be among the acolytes depends, according to Foria’s makers, entirely on your individual reaction to such pre-titilation stimulation. So, it’s like anything else…
