Kissin’ cousins keep intimacy all in the family

“I’m having an affair with my cousin,” the anonymous female writer confesses in the reader’s column of the June issue of the woman’s magazine Renai Tengoku, introduced in Shukan Bunshun (July 2) “We know it’s wrong, but have continued the relationship while taking extra precautions.

“When we go out on ordinary dates, I’m excited. But recently when the family got together for memorial rites for our grandfather, we really got it on.”

The passage that follows looks like it was lifted straight out of a Juzo Itami film.

“During the ceremony,” she writes, “we exchanged silent signals to sneak off. We found a hidden spot between a tree and a storage shed in the back yard, where we exchanged a kiss. Then I squatted and tugged down his trousers, and his thing immediately rose to the occasion.

“He responded by pulling up my skirt and thrusting his hand inside my panties, fingering me. Finally he got off by doing me doggy style while standing up. We both came simultaneously.

“Grandpa — forgive me!” she pleads.

Her tongue-in-cheek byline is Dankon Sosai, a play on words for Kankon Sosai, which means the ceremonies of coming of age, marriage, funeral, and ancestral worship. Kankon is replaced with Dankon, meaning “male root.”

  1. what?

    This is really weird. What a story! Seemingly incomplete, yet why would someone want to out themselves anonymously in a magazine? This is incredulous.
