Surprise in Japan - Shinjuku's sex toy shop


shinjuku sex shop
it's more interesting to buy
one staffer quips

The sex shops paraded rubbery sex toys all over. It was my first visit to a sex shop and was quite thrilled by the openness Japanese had towards such merchandise. The staffer was a woman. Shinjuku Kabukicho is one large red light area so such shops are found in the area. Perhaps she knew I am not a Japanese and tried to put a light joke on my visit. She knew it would be hard to sell me an item. But that was a surprise, a Japanese woman trying to sell something quite 'offensive' to a man and being quite cheeky about it.

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
