Rape simulation game and other strange Japanese products
Everyone was shocked, upset and scandalized by the recent rape simulation game controversy in Japan. “Who plays this kind of game?”, asked many folk as they gathered around the water cooler.
Admittedly it was a very disturbing concept for a game. And it was wrong on so many levels that Amnesty International would have a field day with it.
However, those familiar with quirky and weird Japanese products will point out that this is not the first bizarre product to become a craze in that island nation.
Ok, so the other too-crazy-to-be-true products did not offend your ethical stance as much as this one did. In fact, by far, this might be the most morally defunct product to make the news.
So what other strange products have I come across?
1. Booby Pudding
That’s right! It is pudding shaped like breasts! And you know what? Just for the heck of it, it’s pudding in different shapes and sizes!
It is a bit disturbing that the girl on the left look a bit young. In fact, I wonder if her outfit is a school uniform or sailor’s outfit.
2. Pony Man!
I have never understood the “Me and My Horse” games aimed at the female population. Until now that is. Well, hopefully that was not what the creators of this product had in mind when they came up with this gem.
Why? I mean, really … why?!
Did some wiseguy in that office say, “Hey, boys will be boys and women love ponies…”? Perhaps it was a mis-communication about the idea of a “stud” or “stallion”.

3. F-Cup Cookies
At first glance I figured this was a cookie you hid in the cleavage. I’m sorry, but we just talked about booby-shaped desserts. What were you expecting?
And it’s not like the product picture was self-explanatory. But apparently I am wrong. This is in fact a booby-enhancing cookie.
Yup, eat an undefined amount and you end up in an F-Cup! Now, developing hefty calf muscles to balance that torso is all up to you.

4. Women in a can
Alright, so it was not what the can was called. I was a but apprehensive about stating the name outright.
Here’s the basic idea. The can is “conveniently” shaped and ideal for a young man with wandering hands and a wandering mind.
What would be the can’s slogan? “You never have to use socks again”? Given the most recent controversy in UK, the slogan might as well be “Ways to distract 13 year olds from impregnating school mates”.

5. Collon Candy
You heard me! Collon Candy. Maybe someone forgot to look it up in the dictionary.
Turns out, it’s a Japanese sweetie goody. And it looks cylindrical with a creamy filling. Oooh yum! *sarcasm*
That’s right, feel the bile rise in your throat. Or hear your tummy rumbling, whatever gets the juices going… I wonder if they were trying to say “Column”?
