Anime: Japanese animation
Ashikoki: using the feet to manipulate a sex partner’s penis
AV: (“adult video”) Different countries use abbreviations for different things. In Japan for example, a P.A. is a “parking area” or a little place you pull off the freeway to buy food, drinks and gasoline. AV is Japanese parliance for “adult video” (not audio/visual), and an AV girl or AV idol is an adult video star. Now you know.

Bishonen: (“Beautiful Boy”) An attractive male, more often than not androgynous in appearance

Burusera: shops that sell used girl panties. A single pair often goes for $50-$100.
Chinchin Kenkyu: (“Penis Study”) A genre of pornography in which an “innocent” young woman (or women) is presented with a well-built naked man to experiment with. Often there is an audience of a hundred women and only a few men; several of the women will volunteer to try various sex acts on the men.
Cosplay: (“costume play”) Basically, dressing up in your favorite costumes, usually as characters from anime or video game.
Deri Heru: (“Delivery Health”) is a form of prostitution in Japan similar to fashion health, the difference being that the brothel has no premises and is essentially a call girl or escort service. Outcall call girl businesses distribute advertising handouts to home and apartment mailboxes, telephone booths, restrooms and the like in big cities in Japan.
Doujinshi: (“Same person books”) They are very much “tributes” to the popular anime, comic and game characters, even the erotic ones: the fans love the characters so much, they can’t help drawing erotic tales, fantasizing about this character having sex with that. They are very collectible, since only a few hundred of each book are printed, and they’re nearly always out of print from that moment.
Ecchi: (“H”) Basically anything sexual, lewd or naughty. Mostly focusing on nudity, partial nudity, and provocative clothing rather than pure sex.
Eroanime: Erotic anime
Enjo Kosai A euphemism for a form of teenage prostitution. Teenage schoolgirls are taken out, wined and dined, paid hansomely and in return they “date” older Salarymen. The Salarymen get what they want, for a price that’s agreed upon up-front, and many single salarymen consider it a good bargain. Plus it allows them to get their hands on the much sought after “sailor girls”. (teens in teasing school unifroms).

Fuzoku : (“sexual culture”) A word which originally just meant “culture,” it now refers to sexual culture.
Gaijin: (“foreigner”) This isn’t necessarily a fuzoku related word but I threw it on here in case some reasers aren’t familair with the term. A word that literally means “outsider,” gaijin is kind of a rude word when used in some situations. A more politically correct word is “gai-koku jin” or “outside country person.” There is a tendency for gaijin to refer to themselves by this word, but sometimes take offense if Japanese say “Hey, gaijin.” In this way, it’s not unlike American blacks and their use of the word ‘nigga’ as a way of forming groups.
Girl Hunter: (I was unable to find the Japanese word for this practice). A guy who pays random ordinary women to have sex with him. These guys dress to in very nice suits or tuxes, hang out around busy train and subway stations and proposition passing female commuters to come to a Love Hotel and make a little extra money. An Officelady will approach, covering her face with her scarf or newspaper, and off they go.

Imekura: (“Image Club”) are a type of brothel in Japan similar to fashion health parlors. They differ in that image clubs are themed along popular sexual fantasies such as an office, a doctor’s surgery, a classroom, or a train carriage. The prostitutes themselves, whose activities are usually limited to oral sex, wear exaggerated costumes appropriate to the setting and the desire of the customer.

Karada: Japanese rope bondage
Kawaii: (“cute”) Usually said “Kawaii!!!!!” by young girls in a high-pitched voice than can shatter eardrums.
Kogal: (literally: “child girl”) Really difficult to describe. Kogals are a kind of Japanese girl who wear outrageous styles, paint their faces with weird make-up, and tan their bodies in tanning salons. There have been many shifts in kogal culture since they emerged around 1995, growing out of the old Amuler boom – when all the girls wanted to dress up like Amuro Namie. Various types have included including younger versions of kogals (mago-gals, where “mago” means “grandchild”), yamanba (“mountain hags,” girls who tan themselves til they’re black), and one-gal (gals who act grown up, like stylish actress/model Noriko Fujiwara). Kogals are usually very slutty, thus Japan’s pornography industry has latched onto that with magazines, videos and more. There are also “mama-gals” in Japan now, silly young women in their early 20′s who wear outrageous fashions yet push baby carriages.

Neko: a woman or girl with cat ears and a cat tail, but an otherwise human body; they are found semi-commonly in anime and manga. Cosplay Catgirls wishing to look especially cute will wear over-sized mittens and shoes that look like paws. Catgirls are typically not considered furry because they resemble humans with cat-like embellishments rather than being an anthropomorphic cat.
No-pan kissa: (literally “no-pants cafe”) Cafes where the waitresses wear short skirts with no underwear. The floors, or sections of the floor, are often mirrored.
Nyotaimori: Naked sushi. Seriously. A woman is scrubbed clean and lies naked on a table. The sushi chef places his nummy treats all over her body and then she is carted out to the waiting party. Dessert sex with Sushi Girl (that would make a good album title) is sometimes included.
Omanko: (“pussy”) The only “really” bad word in Japanese, omanko (or just “manko” — the “o” on the front of words in Japanese is a polite prefix that could be translated as “honorable”) just means pussy. Don’t say it to Japanese people, it’s very rude.
Onsen Geisha: prostitutes who work at hotsprings in Japan and appropriate the geisha image to add an element of class to their trade.
Otaku: A word which really means “you” or “your family,” this is a term that has come to mean anyone who gets carried away in his love of anime, manga, sci-fi films, JPOP idols, or any other topic. There are all kinds of otakus in the world, perfume otaku, goth otakus, shoe otakus. Obsession is fun! Note that fans of anime use the term all over the world, but in Japan it’s not really a positive concept. Just as you wouldn’t always feel right about a “Trekkie” who wore Spock ears while shopping, celebration of one’s self as an otaku is better done quietly and with others who share your passion. If you have anime T-shirts and want to wear them in Japan, you might want to reconsider.

In this act, the man’s penis is placed on the intermammary sulcus and squeezed between the woman’s breasts and stimulated with an upwards and downwards sliding motion, usually with the aid of a sexual lubricant.

Ok, this one is really odd, I haven’t been able to find the Japanese word for this particular fetish, which is stange considering that 75f all hentai involves tentacles of some sort. Hmm.
Urabon: (“underground book”) Ostensibly, an illegal book containing uncensored sex photos. Pornography companies latch on to this, though, and use the term liberally. There are also “ura video” (uncensored, underground video) sold in Japan, but they’re almost always censored (go figure).
