Zettai Ryoiku - Absolute Area cellphone strapHere’s a survey that I really should have illustrated with some pictures, but digging around Google in Japanese almost every match I got was definitely not safe for work! Hopefully text only will pass any filters you might have in the office that could potentially block this survey from goo Ranking looking at men’s fetishes, in particular fetishes men would be less eager to talk about.


Between the 21st and 24th of July 2009 1,026 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private online questionnaire. 48.2% of the sample were male, 8.0% in their teens, 14.6% in their twenties, 28.8% in their thirties, 26.0% in their forties, 12.5% in their fifties, and 10.1% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample. Note that today’s question is for the men only, but the same question has been posed to the women.

Number 2, athletic thighs, is quite a rarity in Japan amongst young women, as usually it is the anorexic look that is in. I’m not really quite sure about wide foreheads, though…

In case you didn’t know sam the visibility of blood vessels has long been a sign of nobility as it means you don’t toil outside thus tanning your skin.

    indeed, surprised a bit that someone else actually knows that.

      Even I knew that at the age of 14 -_-

    It also stops women from aging badly.

I don’t think fetish is the right word choice here. Fetish comes with a negative connotation.

    Steven Parker · June 20, 2021 at 03:26

    It has no negative connotation, unless you have hang-ups. Nothing on this list is, by definition, a fetish as such would have to be arousing in of themselves, the object comes first. These are preferences. How ‘foot fetish’ – which isn’t a fetish by definition btw – isn’t in this list amazes me.

    Up until quite recently the back of womens’ NECKS was considered the most attractive part. That is why Geishas have their neck hair shaved decoratively.
