Asian Photography 101: Catching the Upskirt

Posted on May 17, 2008

Asia has long been known for it’s love of two things: Gadgets, such as cameras, and Sex. You can find a camera attached to almost anything that has a battery and Sex?… I don’t think I even need to go there.

In the picture below, both attributes are expressed to their fullest extent.

Welcome to class students… It’s Asian Photography 101: Catching the Upskirt.

  • Make sure the camera is on and lens cap is removed.
  • Maintain the proper angle on your camera when shooting a live upskirt.
  • Make sure your hand is steady and doesn’t shake.
  • Always keep the area of interest in direct focus.
  • Never… Ever… let morality get in the way.

      Tourex. Nice mysogeny. Define “cheap” female.

      The problem is that men like you take whatever you can ge and rather than acknowledging that YOU’RE the cheap-ass slob, you transfer.
      Not many of us are fooled by little boys like you.

        Writerwriter. Nice misandry. Define “cheap-ass slob” and “little boys”.

        The problem is that people like you lash out without even realizing they’re guilty of the same damn thing.
        Not many of us are fooled by hypocrites like you.

        writerwriter. nice use of ad hominem to disguise for your chauvinism.

        “not all of us are fooled…” by your inability to produce a good argument.

        writerwriter,

        In my books, a woman in her thirties, clothes like a school girl and flashes her undies to promote her career does fit the definition of cheap. The men who flock to take her picture are not far above.

        I hope you did not miss what is happening, as it is obvious from the picture miles away?

        Whenever you criticized negative female behavior they immediately reply with your sexist or a misogynist. It is like women are program to say the same things over and over again.

        Most women who throw out your sexist have A HISTORY OF DATING SEXIST MEN.

          ah cheap females….

          The only females that aren’t cheap are the fat and fugly ones. Other than that, every woman out here is cheap.

          WriterWriter,
          I bet you expected a man to pay for you dinner at least a few times…..right? cheap biatch

        Women who use their bodies instead of their minds may be called cheap. This is not to be confused with women who are confident in/comfortable with their bodies.

        A major problem with “feminism”: women who propagate sexism, but disguise it as or believe it to be empowerment. (i.e. an exotic dancer)
        I think Ariel Levy has it right:

        Side note:
        Misogyny is a more popular spelling of mysogeny, writerwriter. Not meant to be an ad hominem, but people may tend to take your arguments more seriously if you spell correctly.

        That's why you're not famous. No matter how pretty or talented you maybe, you pretty much have to take it off to get to the top and be in the media.

        What else does a woman have to offer?

    My ex lived in Japan for 5 years or so and was always lecturing how civilized and advanced Japanese society is compared to the US. Of course I would always bite my tongue and agree. Inside I would always think how could you say that about the country that brought the world bukkake.

    Reply
    1. Eira

      You realize that the original usage of the word bukakke had nothing to do with sex, right? Even now, the most common usage of the word deals with food. I’d be willing to say the sexual term is used more often in American than in Japan.

        he wasnt talkin about the usage of the word he was talkin about ..oh nevermind..why would anybody take the time to look up the word bukkake’s history like that and then try to have a braingasm by tryin to seem like he knows more than somebody??…you’ve got issues man lol

    Great those japanese – integrating (alleged) immoral behavior, crime and sexual perversion and changing it into mainstream, commercialized utaku conduct. Admirable, if all countries were so constructive.

    Enjoying sex is good and natural.

    Claiming sex makes your invisible sky fairy angry and that you should be give money and join the army instead is what is dirty and wrong.

    To be fair, we (by we I mean the western culture) have a tendency to view all other culture through the lens and standard of our own culture. Maybe we should ask ourselves, what kind of things we do that makes other people question our morality? Granted, voyeurism should not be condoned in any shape or form, but if it is socially acceptable in certain cultures, who are we to judge?

    All women are prostitutes, even the chaste married ones who can be seen exchanging sex for security/status. What she is doing is no more or less honorable than what a wife does. Feminazis: you appear to inhabit a non-evidence based ideology. Get real. We live in a socially Darwinian world where people do what they can to survive and assist the human genome to self-replicate. Not everyone is a body-producer. Some peoples role is just to entertain and make life worth living for others. So, if you’re a breeder, breed, but understand that that is not for everyone. Fkn breeders lol

      All women are not prostitutes. A wife is not having sex to gain security or status, believe it or not women are capable of enjoying sex, even if non of the ones that you have met enjoy it(maybe your doing it wrong ;) ) So no, women are not prostitutes, they do it for the exact same reasons you do or want to at least, seeing as how you couldn’t possibly find a girl with an attitude like that.

      I'm against the War on Terror and all other imperialist wars, but I also think both her and the guys taking the photos are low self esteem perverts…

      And guess what, I'm not a Christian, infact, I'm very blasphemous.

      To assume everyone here who has something negative to say about the situation at hand is a bible thumper allows you to avert your eyes to their arguments because you feel their opinion is inferior and not worth pondering. In other words, you're not really expanding your mind.

    She got arrested shortly after this was taken.

    None of them got arrested tho…….but its Japan so it perfecly normal for men to be openly perverts (reading porn manga on the train etc).
    But then anyones whos lived here long enough and isnt one of those idiot foreigner japanophiles who refuses to see anything bad about the place is not even remotely shocked by this kind of thing anymore.

    The funniest thing about this is the reactions of the posters. The image itself is nothing major. No one spontaneously combusted because they saw someone taking an upskirt shot. I’m sure someone’s bible is warm and toasty now.
    Why do we (as American’s) insist on pushing our version of the world and condeming others when we know damn well that this sort of thing takes place here at home.
    Except that it’s usually at Bible camp and there are no girls present ;)
    Oh, and feminazis? This is another example of women “objectifying” men…what a sad state of things.

    Reply
    1. Casey

      Do you know what "Objectifying" means, Gib?

      Judging by the context, I think you meant to say "Stereotyping".

      Nice try though, and just because we're women with opinions and voices, doesn't make us feminazis, and it doesn't mean we're ugly either.

    Her name is Asuka Sawamoto, and she’s 30 years old. She promotes her amature singing gigs with up-skirt photography sessions with her fans. She basically draws a crowd with her flashing her ass and panties, and then sings to the crowd. Her singing must be pretty bad to require that kind of “help” in attracting an audience… Being 30 doesn’t help either I guess. Anyways, she has been arrested by the cops already. You can read about it here:

    I really don’t see what the story is here… Is it the fact that men are attracted to vaginas? Is it that women like men being attracted to their vaginas? This is only news-worthy in a country that is overly obsessed with the prude-like “morality” of the immoral god of Abraham.

    From what I can tell, everyone in the picture is a willing participant. There are no victims here. And frankly, it’s not that big of a deal. Sex and sexuality are not crimes.

    As a side note, the chick is hot.

    I just looove how this website has tons of pictures whenever the topic is about scantily clad women and just one or none on other topics.

    She purred as he pulled out, rolling onto her side as he moved aside. He waited for Irin to stand, then did so himself, water sluicing off him. Eyrhaens inability to control her gifts has brought about changes that should benefit us all. The noise from the spectators filled the wideopen space, excitement building as oiled bodies grappled. She would not cause that fear tonight. She swallowed and pulled away, her attention instantly switching to the grounds below. Im eager to see this spell. Thats what youre happy about? Maybe she should run and change. This felt right, and she was here cutting out her soul anyway. What do you think, Tyk? Radin dissolved the spell before it could take form. But… At the wrestling match, and before… All this time… Brevin licked the point of Tykirs ear. I love you, she murmured, needing to share the warmth in her heart. Delight sparked in his eyes when she drew up to her knees. Theres no reason I should flourish. He sat in the chair, watching her. His bold words cut through a world of insecurity. She would have had to come to terms with the fact.
