It’s been a while since I did a giant block of text answer to an Ask Onii-chan so let’s do that. NO PICTURES, MOTHERFUCKERS!
Hey there Onii-chan.
What’s the deal with all the rape? Hopefully you read that in a Jerry Seinfeld voice. But yeah, why is rape such a popular trope in hentai? Wouldn’t it be more appealing to people that their narrative proxy not be a rapist? Of course, after one round of rape the women seem okay with it I guess, but still what the hell? For that matter, why are the dudes in hentai ugly bastards when they are bothering to show them at all? Not all are of course, but there seems to be a certain predilection to this being the case. Maybe I’m just perusing the kinds of hentai that gravitate towards this trope? I’ve also noticed this in japanese porn vs every other kind of porn too. The chicks will say “no” and “don’t.” But every other kind of chick will say “yes” and “more.” I don’t get it.
Hope all is well,
Alright, Pancakes. Let’s tackle the multiple questions involved here. The first question sort of ties into the second question in a way that’s worth explaining so I’ll start with the question about women in Japanese porn saying “no” and “don’t” instead of “more, harder, etc.” So let’s-a go!
There are a lot of social standards in Japan that don’t really crop up in Japanese popular culture as much. There are certain parts that are definitely present, characters blushing while holding hands and dating for months without so much as kissing. These aren’t really realities in the current era in Japan. People kiss and fuck pretty regularly, even if they don’t kiss like sane human beings. While certainly people have become more willing to fuck than a few decades ago, there’s also a large chunk of extremely detached youths in the current generation who end up as virgins until higher ages. The virgins are a bit of a different problem in Japanese culture and one that’s bleeding into the west more and more, where the value of a relationship doesn’t end up above the desire to have one.
