Finally A Japanese poster!

I have been getting much stuff done lately, so my intended poster was being delayed. Anyway, here it is with much love and affection. Look out for some more posters in the future!

A long way from discussing....

The word, sex. I know, I know its taboo for some cultures and forbidden in others, it is a rite of passage for some, while it is a means to an end in others, and for other countries it is casual, nothing much to say, it just happens....and for me, well I found a moment and was too curious to pass it up.

There I was buying my make up and mascara and eye shadow, and ladies stuff, and my eyes happen to fall onto some very fancy lingerie. I wore one a few times and they can be quite comfortable, but these looked like they can cause some sinister thoughts. So, I fingered some jewelery, some chains, looked at the false eyelashes and put a lip gloss into the basket. I went to the check out counter, and purchased my stuff, $89 (TTD) for everything. just my budget, I paid $100, got my change. I then proceeded to have a wierd conversation with the cashier:

"Can I ask you something?"


"What does edible lingerie taste like?"


"Well I am just curious, I have heard of it, and I don't know."

"Well it depends on what you like, there are undies for the guys and lingerie for the ladies, they can taste like licorice, cherries, strawberries, anything!"

I tried to imagine chewing lingerie that was already worn, and I shuddered a bit. I continued:

"Well what is the purpose if you are gonna eat it? Do you stay there chewing it....." I tried not to think about this part.

"These items sells very quickly, they hardly stay on the shelves, as a matter of fact, we have some here, take a look!"

So I went over to a corner next to the cashier section and saw stuff like, edible bra, edible undies, edible lingerie, and other X rated items I won't mention. This looks like big business.

Then I said, "But the stuff looks like cloth? Is it jelly?"

The cashier, and the customer laughed, "Nope, that is what they have on the cover."

"Oh." I can't imagine someone chewing something that was worn in the nether regions, and I couldn't imagine a sane human doing so. There it was, edible "stuff", while it does not appeal to me, it is big business in the world, and I would rather be given the choice to be educated about it, and know what it is, than have someone laugh at my ignorance, or put me in a position I can't handle. Again, you learn something new everyday.
