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.
