Japan for the Uninvited

Japanese culture from a bemused foreign perspective

Bukkake

BukkakeBukkake, one of Japan’s most famous sexual fetishes, refers to a number of people ejaculating on someone, usually a young woman. This kink has become popular all over the world. However, while a Western porn actress might at least pretend to enjoy all the “attention” she’s getting, the Japanese concept focuses on the humiliation and passivity of the unfortunate receiver.

The word bukkake comes from a compound verb meaning “pouring out something which splashes”. Its usage is not only sexual – bukkake udon and bukkake soba are popular noodle dishes sprinkled with tasty toppings before being doused with broth. Surprisingly, appetites don’t seem to be affected by the imagery the name might imply.

Origins

Many sources claim that bukkake started in feudal Japan as a punishment for adulterous wives – less painful than getting stoned to death, but stickier. Sadly, there doesn’t seem to be any historical evidence for this. In fact, bukkake may only have been widely acknowledged since the 1980s. Japanese decency laws prohibit the portrayal of penetration with the penis, and bukkake probably started as a way for pornographers to dodge the dreaded mosaic. Like some other Japanese fetishes (for example, tentacle sex), this evasion of the smut police quickly became popular in its own right.
