Book summary

A history of Japanese sexual mores and a survey of modern Japanese love, marriage and family life. The author explores the subject starting with creation myths and ending with present-day love hotels, soap ladies, porn videos and sex shows. He discusses the Japanese attitude to bringing up children, marriage, work and alcohol. What emerges is a race refeshingly guilt-free about sex, but at the same time mother-fixated, voyeuristic, obsessed with the female genitalia and whose national pastime is peering beneath skirts.
