What Tokyo wants in bed

Sexual dreams and fantasies in Japan's capital

What Tokyo wants in bed

As part of the Time Out Tokyo Sex Survey, we asked our readers to fill the blank in the following sentence:

I'm looking for someone in Tokyo who will __ in bed

The response

Of the 827 replies we received, just over 60 percent responded to this part of the survey. 30 percent of those respondents were women (the rest, presumably, were men).

The commonalities

Approximately 12 percent of the respondents simply want to 'hug' in bed (64 percent of the huggers were women, with that number fairly evenly split between readers who responded in Japanese or English). Intriguingly, the most common response in English was 'fuck', but the most common phrase in Japanese was icha-icha, which usually translates as 'flirt' or 'make out'. Interesting to note that flirting continues even after the two (or more) parties have actually arrived between the sheets. We live and learn...
