March 12,2008: Naked Sushi, SFW??

From Minneapolis, via Neatorama.

Quote:
How many times in your life do you get the chance to eat sushi off of a naked person?

Even when I lived in Okinawa, word was you had to travel to Tokyo if you wanted to witness one of these events -- and if you were a gaijin, you'd better have connections. It was the potential experience more than the food that attracted me to Temple Restaurant & Shinto Lounge on Saturday night for the first of two nyotaimori and nantaimori evenings.

The history of eating sushi off of a person ("nyotaimori" and "nantaimori" mean "female body presentation" and "male body presentation" respectively) is a bit enigmatic, and tracking down the origins of the practice is difficult. Sources differ about whether it is a longstanding tradition among geisha or whether it is a relatively recent phenomenon owed to the yakuza.

At a private birthday party the night before, Temple staff got the chance to train in a real-life setting. Still, excitement was palpable, even as models were being prepared an hour prior to opening.

All told, it takes roughly 90 minutes to prepare a model. After hair and makeup are completed, the robed individual is surrounded by Japanese shoji screens. Behind the screens, the model's sensitive regions are covered with flowers before the sushi can be arranged on bamboo leaves atop their bodies.
More importantly, here's the slide show.

SPUCK  Wednesday Mar 12 05:26 AM

Who cares.. It's gross.

The things(pointless) that people will do is amazing.



Sheldonrs  Wednesday Mar 12 09:44 AM

Kinda puts the BUFF in BUFFet, huh?



Shawnee123  Wednesday Mar 12 09:46 AM

It's nice how they lined it all up in a roe.



sweetwater  Wednesday Mar 12 10:57 AM

[insert tuna odor jokes here]



Buckrogers47  Wednesday Mar 12 11:06 AM

Is that chick grabbing a sausage with her chopsticks?



borisivan  Wednesday Mar 12 11:07 AM

Guy in the photo in the top picture is gay, whether or not he was gay before he participated in this event remains a mystery.



Shawnee123  Wednesday Mar 12 11:10 AM

So, raw fish causes teh ghey?



shina  Wednesday Mar 12 11:15 AM

Saw it on tv already. This seems to be the new craze. I like sushi but I think I will forego that particular table.



Hillrick  Wednesday Mar 12 11:16 AM

How a culture that has produced so much beauty, in architechture and art, and that has such deep traditions....can come up with things like this is beyond me. Maybe they cannot find the roots of this but there is so much humiliation and debasement in Japanese lifestyle from their treatment of women and other races et al. I cannot believe that this is not another form of this by making another human no more than an object and calling it art. Do they include a bukkake selection for their desert cart?

Just stay away from the yellow tail.


dar512  Wednesday Mar 12 02:16 PM

*Excusing self from table*
I think I'm ready for another piece of that.



dar512  Wednesday Mar 12 02:20 PM

I call the flower!



Sheldonrs  Wednesday Mar 12 02:28 PM

And after dinner, you can play a few rounds of pokehim.



Shawnee123  Wednesday Mar 12 02:37 PM

Now, what have I told you about playing with your food?

Plenty of Fugu to go round, then...


TheMercenary  Wednesday Mar 12 02:55 PM

I wonder if they are allowed to engage the diners in small talk as the others eat.



euphoriatheory  Wednesday Mar 12 06:08 PM

Small talk of the "you come here often" tradition?

My first thought is about the temperature. Personally, I think it's sort of neat, but I'd freeze my bum off laying out there with fish draped all over me. (Yet, if they kept it warm enough for me, it wouldn't be good for the inhibition of major bacteria growth on sushi...)



DucksNuts  Wednesday Mar 12 06:40 PM

Why?



Gravdigr  Wednesday Mar 12 07:36 PM

OK...I got two (no three) (no four) questions right off.

1. How do you get dried wasabi out of pubic hair?

and

2. How gay is the male diner in the first pic? He's going right for the groin!!!

and

3. How bad does a chopstick pinch to the jimmy hurt?

and

4. Does the buffett come with Happy Ending?:p



monster  Wednesday Mar 12 08:21 PM

Next it'll be school dinners..... (hot lunch to you merkins....)






val5150  Thursday Mar 13 11:09 AM

Who's gonna lick the plate?



Sheldonrs  Thursday Mar 13 11:30 AM

How about a nice bowel of soup?

Grim

BTW if I was at that sushi party I wouldn't go and sit away from the table! I'd be right there helping myself all night. For a start the first rule of buffet is you do not move too far away from the buffet. And secondly, if the draw is the naked person, why sit where you can't see? I'd be hanging around going for a peek of johnson...


Elspode  Thursday Mar 13 10:58 PM

Here ya' go, SG...a peek of Johnson...ville Brats.

ooh, ooh... what about McDonalds?

they could interlace the fries with their greasy hair.... buns on their buns... you could dip your nuggets in their zit pus

(sorry, were you eating?)


Sundae  Friday Mar 14 05:38 AM

Huntsman spiders, exploding dogs and now this.
No, I'm never eating again thank you.



Shawnee123  Friday Mar 14 10:03 AM

To heck with Adkins, we're on the Cellar diet.



BrianR  Friday Mar 14 11:13 AM

How many times in your life do you get the chance to eat sushi off of a naked person?

Actually, more often than you'd think.

Ya just gotta know the right people! Maybe not sushi, but I've done fruit, finger foods and cheez dip and crackers.
