would anyone be opposed to....

Postby spank » Thu 01.12.2006 12:53 pm

a japanese adult forum?
the reason i ask is because some members and moderators here are not of legal age, and shouldn't be exposed to some finer aspects of japanese culture: ex. AV, japanese idols, AV, extreme asian cinema, cosplay, AV, erotic novels, certain types of anime, hentai, AV, japanese toys, Love hotels, AV, certain types of manga, dating sims and AV.:o

whether you want to admit it or not, these are all facets of japanese culture and this is the japanesepage.com. If i want to discuss some of these cultural points with another "mature" member on this site, shouln't it be condoned, as long as the subject matter is treated tastefully?

My last thread was adult oriented and was closed for unknown reasons by a minor. This problem could be circumvented if we have an adults only section. Just a whim.:)

I couldn't bring myself to post a picture. That would just be wrong.:p

Are there any other japanese sites out there that have discussions about adult themes that i should be looking into...or am i just sick in the head?

I think this would damage TJP's image. And attract tons of "unwanted" guests that would disturb our studying. I think having such a discussion hosted on another site would be better (why don't you create one spank?)

BTW, I don't think your thread would have been closed if you hadn't posted the pictures and those rather explicit commentaries about the girl with the tattoo...

Just MHO.
Really gotta go now... こんばんはみなさん。

Ya, I am quickly becoming unwanted here. I am counting down the days until I get banned, then resurface with a new identity. I dont' know the first thing about Java, otherwise, I would make a kick-ass forum for this kinda stuff on my own site. I'm really intrigued by it.

About the tatoo, man that scene was hard-core. That was the kicker!! and she had it coming!
If a guy can make a movie about it, I thought I could atleast mention it here.:o
check it out: http://http://www.thejapanesepage.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2352

I didn't know that TJP had this pious image of being so didactic and academic. As far as I'm concerned, things like manga and anime can be summed up as flashy children's stories. Maybe that's what most of the members here actually are. :D

in "my" opinion talk about "normal" adult videos would be ok (i mean everythin ecxept porn or any other av/idol ect stuff) because then its not far away of becoming a filthy porn page with pervs everywhere requesting pics videos and what not

an adult section would be a bad idea. to be certain, some sort of age check would be needed like the porn sites have (credit card numbers, or AdultCheck ... ). adult sections would also be subject to vast amount of spamming of the "Cam-Girls-Here", "Live-24hr-Chat", and the like. because porn/adult stuff is $$ business. also consider the number of times Clay has posted about visiting high schools and the like giving talks on things Japanese, plus this site is probably (guessing here) supported by the business side at thejapanshop.net. check out what is sold there. so yes, (i think) this site is educational directed. that covers language, culture, oddities, whatnot. but not graphic adult material. you can find that over at 4chan or gurochan.

so yes, it's best to avoid graphic descriptions (or images) on this site (i think). and yes, there are other places you can go if you want to go into gory detail.

I see the point. While I don't think the thread should have been closed, the film wasn't in presented in the best of taste.

I definatly agree with tony. I think that the problem wasn't as much that you were talking about a movie (which is not adult, just a psycho thriller, btw), but rather the comments that you made following it. I could have definately gone without hearing your sexual fetishes. :/

I'm not going to repeat all that was said above...but how is cosplay adult? There's kids and teens doing that more than adults (I've been to a few cons, so I can say this safely).

have you ever seen "Man-Faye"? :D i was assuming that 'adult' cosplay/AV stars/etc was being proposed vs 'non-adult' since the question was about an 'adult' section. if you haven't found the 'adult' cosplay yet, keep looking.... B)

i would assume that plain cosplay/AV/games/etc would fit somewhere under the general section.

zengargoyle, you hit the nail on the head.

and just to clarify. "adult" does not mean strictly pornographic. it means "intended for an adult audience." (this includes pornography, but is not limited to it). so, the movie i was talking about, is actually adult, but not pornographic. kids shouldn't see it anyways.
and no i don't have some sadomasochisitic desire to see young, nubile girls get flayed with a wood planer. those comments were there for your amusement. sorry if you didn't find it funny, but it was. there is this new movie being released called "hostel". i recommend some of you see it.

as for fetishes..hahah. dont those involve inanimate objects of some kind? there wasn't anything in that scene that really turned me on except for the girls - and my sister says watching smut is a healthy way to relieve my primordal urges. :D

I've said this before, "Anything your grandmother would disapprove of should be left at the door." My goal with this site has always been to encourage language study and while this of course includes a cultural side (can't separate 'real' language with culture) there is no reason to go obscene.

No adult discussions, please. The Net is filled with sites just about that. Just do a quick google search with the adult content filter off.

Ah, no, it wasn't. You were amused, but it wasn't funny. No one seems to have found it funny. Frankly, I think it was in bad taste -- and I'm as much of a sukebe oyaji as anyone I know. There's a thing called propriety. This was not the forum or venue for that sort of thing.

A discussion on Japanese movies, even things like Battle Royale and so on, shouldn't be out of place here -- but for an adult topic to function and survive, it presupposes that one will act LIKE an adult in that thread.

Get it?

I don't get it. How is an adult supposed to act and who makes this presupposition?

What is this supposed to mean? I didn't say anything personal against you spank. I just expressed my opinion about an adult section being a bad idea.

I am glad to see you around. And I've actually found most of your posts useful and/or enjoyable. Please don't take opinions personally, OK?;)
