Palm Readers Get Secret Sex In Japan

Palm Readers Get Secret Sex In Japan

An artist in Japan has created a "tribute" to discarded porno magazines that litter the streets of his home city with scale models of the dog-eared, stained and tatty publications.

The artwork was created by Twitter user and hobbyist luckydog505, who says he has painstakingly recreated 1/6 scale exact replicas of some porno mags he found "as a tribute to daily life in Japan."

In Japan, erotic magazines - ero-hon - are everywhere and are even easily found discarded on the streets. Sociologists say children get their first taste of pornography from such abandoned copies as they cannot help but stumble on the discarded volumes on their way home from school.

The artist says the whole goal of his little crafts project was to "recreate that feeling of gleefully dark excitement of discovering a (nearly) intact magazine, but in this case a secret private copy that can be hidden in the palm of the hand".

His models are incredibly lifelike, complete with stains, torn pages, and the naked models within.

He wants to remain anonymous but told one magazine in the capital Tokyo: "It is all about paying tribute to a time and a place in every boys' life when he gets that thrill of picking up something forbidden, and the innocence of childhood dies forever.

"Porn is to be found everywhere on Japanese streets. Artists paint what they see: I created these models because I see this stuff all the time."
