Sexy Japan

From Hentai to Yaoi to Japanese bondage, it's no secret that Japan is responsible for some interesting, freaky sexports. Expatriate Midori, the acclaimed feminist sexual educator and author of several books, including Wild Side Sex: The Book of Kink, is no exception. Originally from Japan, Midori now resides in the U.S. capital of sexual openness, San Francisco, where she's active in HIV/AIDS-outreach and teaches intriguing classes with names like "Rope Bondage Dojo." She visits St. Louis to share "Pink Japan: Contemporary Sex Culture," a lecture and photos that illustrate aspects of Japan's sex culture, including its gender relationships, sexual consumerism, sex habits and the LGBT world at large. Catch Midori's talk at 7:30 p.m. this evening at Shameless Grounds (2650 Sidney Street; 314-773-9900 or www.shamelessgrounds.com). Admission is $15.
