Abstract: Japan has been dubbed a "pornographic society" attributable to the large-scale pornography industry in contemporary Japanese society. Furthemore, westerners who visit Japan are often struck by the ubiquity of sexually explicit material. While the pornography industry in the U.S., for example, is enormous, such material tends to be localized to certain corners of society, separate from the mainstream. However, in Japan, nudity and sexual images are regularly depicted in newspapers, magazines, and comic books, and are displayed in clear view of the general population. This essay addresses some prevalent attitudes toward sexuality which may contribute to the public display and massive consumption of pornography in Japan.
