Sex Bar Creates Buzz

Sunday, October 7th, 2012

“Love Joule” opened up in Tokyo last July and women are really getting off on it. The bar is for women only so they can sit around in a relaxed, non-threatening atmosphere and talk about female masturbation. There’s no sex but behind the bar where bottles of alcohol usually are displayed, you can find row upon rows of women’s adult toys. Cocktails are served and the business has been wildly successful.

Megumi Nakagawa, the bar’s proprietor, explains  “Since most Japanese people view female masturbation as something of a mystery or taboo, it is not a usual topic at typical bars.” Love Joule’s patrons include working women, stay-at-home Moms, professional women, models, and sometimes a female star from Japan’s adult entertainment industry.

In the bar, women can “handle the merchandise” – but not their own nor that of anyone else. It’s strictly a no-sex atmosphere to talk, handle the toys, share experiences, and bond. Love Joule has it’s own Facebook page at:

FYI: The word “orgasm” has opposite translations in English and Japanese. In English, we say, “I’m coming.” In Japanese, it’s “I’m going.”
