because all their porn is censored.
I don't know specific rules, but i'm guessing your case is because it was an export or licensed distribution for America it didn't have the same rules.
I'm sure evilhomer could transcribe the wiki for us.
My understanding is that it's specifically pubic hair that's censored, and that's part of the reason for all of the creepy "little girls with giant breasts" type hentai - you can get away with almost anything as long as there's no pubic hair.
Seems pretty easy to get around if you're drawing it; don't draw pubic hair! That's interesting though because in the states a full frontal shot of a woman will probably still get an R-rating instead of NC-17 because the hair is pretty much covering the vagina..
Genitals are censored, pubic hair used to be censored but has been legal since the 90s. The profusion of lolicon probably comes down more to cultural differences than to shaved-pubes fetishism: the age of consent is considerably lower in Japan than it is in the US, and until the last decade or so, CP laws were pretty relaxed (they were tightened under pressure from Western governments, who - ironically enough - the Japanese public feel are unnecessarily restrictive in that regards).
My theory is that Japan's wonderfully creative porn results from a combination of censorship, their extremely stressful school/ work environments, and the desensitization which comes from being constantly immersed in a sea of media and technology.
That's weird too though, because as far as Censorship goes, I'd say the US does a much better job of censorship, at least for the masses. I haven't been to Japan since '95 but I remember eating dinner with my homestays and "woah" tits on TV! Not to mention what I assume is uncensored language, even in anime geared towards children (like Doraemon).
I understand that I was not there to work; I was 13 and part of an Arts Exchange Program, but I did visit my homestay's mom's work, who was raising 3 kids of her own by herself. The factory line looked high volume and a little stressful, but it afforded her a nice house and plenty of amenities for her kids. Life in the fast lane didn't seem too much different stress-wise than I imagine living and working in NYC is.
As far as success goes, in both school and work, it's true that there seems to be more pressure, but take Benoit Violier, for example, whose restaurant was just crowned best in the world, and by proxy Violier best chef, who took his own life two days ago. Everybody knows that working in a popular restaurant is stressful as hell, but suicide like that is more often to be associated with Japan than Switzerland, so it can happen anywhere. I dunno, just my two cents.
The medic puts the clothes back on.
Nobody plays the medic.
Different rules for exports. It's all fuzzy in Japan. Saw some strange anal stuff in a porn shop here, seems they don't need to pixelate tha butt, but for some reason all the ladies had baseballs or mini basketballs crammed up the chocolate wind tunnel.
Some studios also seem to use a black blob to obscure the genitals, but it does a very precise job, so it looks like only the fun bits have been replaced by pure black. Very odd.
The shop was incredibly well organized, with each row getting more precise, grandmas, scat, grandmas doing scat... The last row had me running out the store, and I'm not reffering to the elderly shit play.
Heh there used to be a comic book store in Portland that my friend worked at : the front was kid/teen friendly for the most part: think more graphic novel than Spiderman or X-Men, but go down the stairs and you were in the Smut section. If there's a fetish for it, they had it, and if anybody's ever done anything sexual, they had that too (use your imagination all you want) I've got a pretty steel stomach when it comes to these things (Thanks, nearly 20 years of POE!!) but my gag reflex was going off a little when I reached a certain section. Can't say my friend didn't warn me though.
(Or to put it another way, if rotten.com were a porn site)... D:
Supposed to be for zesty.

I tried to watch Japanese porn once. Nothing gonzo, no shooting cockroaches or tadpoles out of assholes or anything. Just a plain boy/girl scene.
Three minutes in: "What's with all this awkward silence? Everything he does to her seems pretty rapey. I mean she acts like she doesn't even want to look at his blurry cock. Wait, is she CRYING? Those aren't moans. That's fucking crying, what the fuck." Then finally, "I can't jerk off to this. *click.*"
I can sort of sympathize. Given enough of this over time, it starts to make sense that a porn consuming population will turn toward shooting off little girls' clothes in video games.
Speaking of tadpoles and such, I think I saw it on here, but there's a nice little documentary about the Japanese underground porn scene, where tadpoles is kinda G-rated. I wish I remembered the link or the title because it was pretty enlightening and really depressing.
But to be fair, there's plenty of Western porn like that too, maybe sans the tadpoles or eels and the whatnot. Just go to one of the cheaper free porn sites and it's full of somebodys' daughters getting torn apart by two or three guys 3 times their age, and you look at the views and it's more than most popular YT videos.
My favorite liveaction Japanese porn is the stuff which involves fully-dressed cosplay girls dryhumping fully-clothed men to orgasm. Also, fully clothed cosplay girls getting beaten, eaten, and digested by giant rubbery Power Rangers monsters. If genitals must be involved, then intercrural, armpit, and kneepit are acceptable.
You know, nothing TOO weird.
Things get a lot more interesting with anime girls, however.
maybe that's it. It's either rape and beyond, or pantyshot cheesecake. there is no intermediate porn level.
a lot of Japanese porn seems very rape-ey.
even in just mainstream anime, fetishized rape scenarios are too common.
I love that at 2:40 it starts expounding on the virtues of the panty shots available in the game. They're not even trying to pretend here.
Still, I guess I'll put it on my cosplay list...
