ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
World's Best Ever says: "The Sekuhara (translated: Sexual Harassment) Interface is a group of daikon radishes that have been hooked up to electronic sensors to emit moans and groans when groped."
It would be easy to construct a Sekuhara Interface for home use using the MaKey MaKey kit.
took the nonverbal communication right out of my mouth
Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg.
The way you squeeze my radish, I’m gonna fall right out of bed.
I’ve often thought that the Bop It toy was one short hack away from being a sexual harassment toy. But I’ve never thought of daikon as… Well now I’ll never be able to think of anything else.
Bop it knows what it likes, and is apparently not afraid to demand it.
It’s oddly culturally relevant in that they have made the radishes sound exactly like women in Japanese porn (that moan that to my Western trained ears sounds more like rape/ non consensual sex pleads than pleasure).
Well, maybe to to Eastern trained ears we sound like a bunch of monkeys.
Japanese women don’t sound like Japanese porn like western women don’t sound like western porn so I dont really get your point.
But you are right in that these sounds come from Japanese porn. Amusingly they decided to use “itai” (it hurts) instead of “iku” (I’m coming). It is weird that Japanese porn consumers expect their fantasy girls to be telling them it hurts (I suspect the turn on is supposed to be the implication it hurts because their junk is so big).
So that’s a moarn, huh? Not what I was expecting. Those lovely radishes are much too phallic to pair such a girlie sound with them, but some sexy man moarns might be nice….
There was a boy radish too. I feel 1 male : 3 females is just about right.

In Korea it’s common to refer to women with short, squat legs as “turnip legs” (referring to the same vegetable); I wonder if Japan has a similar expression.
Ha! A Japanese girl I know often referred to hakujin (white people) as daikon ashi (radish legs) because white girls tend to have much fatter (and whiter) legs than Japanese girls.
In america some say “legs like a piano”
Oh Japan, Japan, Japan… You’re off your meds again, aren’t you?
I’m surprised the obvious hasn’t been said yet.
“He was hoping for a root (Vegetable)”
Once upon a time, in a garden in Australia…
[nsfw if your boss hates philodendrons]
Once again proof that that Nature is curiouser than anything humans dream up.
Nature used a moth. Australians decided to give the philodendron a hanj.
The bottom is female, the top is male, the covering has to close halfway to protect the female part from being fertilized by its own male part, and a mere moth can lightly skip over the surface and yet effect the equivalent result as a much more thorough handjob….that’s rather curious, to me.
Call any vegetable and the chances are good
