Ancient Japanese 'Naked Sushi' Tradition Catches On in Florida
Saint Petersburg Times via FOX News ^ | Saturday, June 28, 2008 | Atoyia Deans

The "naked sushi" trend — you know, the one "Sex and the City" Samantha latched onto in the hit movie as a way of tantalizing her boyfriend — has been bait for geisha partygoers in Japan for centuries.

Now, it's catching on in Florida, according to The St. Petersburg Times.

A club in Clearwater has attracted open-mouthed patrons after adopting the tradition, which involves serving raw fish delicacies straight off the body of a barely clothed woman.

I haven't watched "Sex and the City" but have read a bit of the hype. Enough to be familiar with the characters. I can hardly imagine that associating the character "Samantha" with "raw fish" would drive one to want to east anything at all.

How about you Freepers? Want to eat raw fish off a naked chick you don't know? I suppose I've done worse...but it was a lot more fun!

I don’t watch TV and haven’t seen “Sex and the City”, but I *did* Google to get context...

My poor tired mind has now boggled. I’d rather chow down to a plate of Eukanuba Dog Chow with my favorite German Shepherd than eat raw fish off the naked body of that well-aged strumpet! ‘Strewth! Some images are just not worth imagining.

Eeeew. Blech. Every so often something comes along that reminds me how different Japanese culture is from our own. Sumo wrestling - where massively fat men use their blubber to knock each other down - is another one of these things.

Some lawyer is probably awaiting far more eagerly than I, I’ll bet.

No relation to the main subject but I had to smile when I read what you would rather do than what the main subject was discussing. My two German Shepherd pups (7months old) are laying here at my feet as I type this. I don't think they enjoy FR as much as I do but they just came in from an hour of fun outside so they are resting.

I had an old girlfriend that started this whole craze I bet...except for the actual raw fish part. It just seemed like thats what it was.

Can you tell the difference?

Reminds me of the old shrimp/dead girl in the morgue joke that can’t be repeated publicly on FR...

(big grin!) 7 mos old is a great age for GSD pups! Mine is 4 yrs old now, a lovely girl. But there are some things that are best not shared with GSDs, and one of those things is food. They have the talent of eating down to its bare essentials: it’s usually over with really fast, in a flash of huge gleaming ivory teeth and long supple pink tongue, with enough slobber to get the job done and it is seldom a pretty sight...

I remember scenes like this in old Hollywood Biblical movies, during the orgy scene right before the depraved people were destroyed by God, if I’m not mistaken.

I love sushi and I love women, but not at the same time, thank you.

This sushi on a woman’s body is NOT a century old Japanese tradition as far as I know — and I have lived here for 22 years now.

Actually the first time I heard of it was from a story about a German restaurant who had started offering it. That was about three or four years ago.

I don’t underestimate the Japanese capacity for wierdness, but I think this doesn’t count.

The ritual known in Japanese as “Nyotaimori” (which means “female body presentation”) originated in Japan hundreds of years ago as part of the geisha scene, historians say.

So strange. I am old enough to remember the beginnings of the original women’s rights movement. It claimed to be all about treating women with dignity and not merely as sex objects. Women are more debased today in our society than they have ever been in my lifetime. And most of the debasing originates with the women themselves.

The last time women were as debased in society as now was in the Roman Empire, prior to the rise of Christianity

I assume you are referring to Western societies, as mohammedan cultures have never stopped debasing them.

I read this article yesterday and wondered how it passes the “health” requirements in a restaurant. Here’s a link to the standard health requirements for a restaurant. Wonder how they comply with #22

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyotaimori

Nyotaimori (Japanese: 女体盛り, "female body presentation"), often referred to as "body sushi," is the practice of eating sashimi or sushi from the body of a woman, typically naked. This sexual fetish is a subdivision of food play. As a result of being served on a human body, the temperature of the sushi or sashimi comes closer to body temperature, which some may see as a disadvantage or a benefit[

Our aged lapcat Sam used to like to jump up and sit there while someone was posting to FR, or even to The Pod on AOL.

When he got really old (24 is really old for a cat) you had to pick him up so he could sit there while you typed.

I prefer my sushi on/in rice and seaweed. I prefer my sashimi RAW, and also on rice. Also, make sure to serve it with REAL soysauce, not that imitation product made with wheat.

Recently we went to a Terrihut in Oceanside. Good place. Unfortunately all they had was the imitation product, but since that's a Terrihut they had some Sriracha from Rosemead CA (the ONLY American hot sauce regularly shipped to Malaysia!). Took some of that stuff and mixed it up with a lump of Wasabi just like you'd do if you had proper soy sauce.

Dunk a piece of sushi on that and you have a MEAL~~~!!!! Leaves you breathless.
