“I’d never given much thought to designer brand items, but one day I saw a pricey handbag that caught my fancy and it changed my whole life. To get the money for it, I started working part time at a sex shop.”
So confesses an anonymous amateur contributor in the August issue of Ai no Taiken Special Deluxe, as presented on the pages of Shukan Bunshun (Oct. 27).
“For some reason I turned out to be quite popular at the shop, and began putting in longer hours. There was something about servicing short-time customers in a small cubicle that gave me the sensation of a tryst between lovers, and the sex was really great.
“Even when a customer was obnoxious, by forcing myself to put up with him turned me on, in an entirely different way. By the way, I am slightly on the chubby side, and a lot of my customers were Oedipal and enjoyed sucking at my breasts. Since my nipples are one of my most sensitive erogenous zones, I guess that’s why I got the sensation of doing the real thing.”
The anonymous byline cooked up this time by Bunshun’s editor takes a literary bent: “Nantonaku chikubi suttaru.” This is a pun on “Nantonaku Kurisutaru” (Somehow, Crystal), author and former Nagano prefecture governor Yasuo Tanaka’s Akutagawa Prize-winning popular 1980 novel about the dolce vita lifestyle of a university coed cum fashion model. By tweaking the title to chikubi suttaru, it takes on the meaning of, “somehow, (somebody’s) suckling (my) nipples.” (W.W.)
