The online version of Radar magazine has published a selection of Sinclair’s Pink Box pics (WARNING: They are not safe for work). Here’s a snippet of the magazine’s intro:
“The clubs are a reflection of modern Japan,” writes Sinclair, “where the rules are written out, prices are not negotiable, and fantasies are predetermined, prescripted, and prepaid.” But those who dismiss the Japanese as excessively demure or morbidly repressed would do well to take a peep inside. America has its run-of-the-mill massage parlors and topless bars, but only in Tokyo can you find entire clubs populated by faux nurses, teachers, stewardesses, and secretaries—not to mention naked karaoke, mirrored floors, life-size latex dolls, and bathtubs filled with green gel and faux-mermaids. And, as Tokyo police crack down on a wave of subway gropings, the Kabukicho district offers not one but three clubs equipped with immaculately reconstructed train cars filled with short-skirted schoolgirls who won’t press charges.
Only in Tokyo? We guess that could be true, but, for what it’s worth, we have be told of at least one “uniform fetish” brothel in Hebei and it wouldn’t surprise us to learn of underground fetish clubs in Shanghai — anyone have stories to share?
Here’s the caption for the photo that appears above:
Stewardess fantasy club; Air Touch, Osaka.
At club Air Touch, customers receive more than earphones and a blanket if they choose to sit in “Business Class.”
