A Ďlove and sexí bar encourages women to discuss wanking
In an issue that includes special coverage of women and masturbation, Spa! (Sep. 11) takes a seat at a Tokyo bar where women are encouraged to weigh in on wanking.
Love Joule, located in the Shibuya entertainment district of Tokyo, opened in July and provides Japan, according to its Web site, with its first ďlove and sex bar dedicated to women.Ē
The wall behind the counter is adorned with dozens of colorful sex toys. Megumi Nakagawa, the barís proprietor, explains that typically a bar will have bottles of alcohol lining the wall. The appearance of vibrators, however, provides women with more confidence in speaking about spanking.
ďOnce they take a seat, customers are able to experience a pleasant place in which they can openly discuss masturbation,Ē says Nakagawa. ďSince most people view female masturbation as something of a mystery or taboo, it is not a usual topic at typical bars.Ē
Nakagawa describes the atmosphere at Bar Joule as ďfashionable and sexy in a different kind of space ó perfect for girls-only discussions or a date.Ē
