'Free sex for all applicants' 2003,01,17
Asahi Geino 1/23
Japan may be well be in an era of free love, but this is getting a bit ridiculous.
As in many other countries, it's common for companies in Japan to offer prizes during special promotional campaigns.
It's just that things get a little weird when you've got companies like Bakky Visual Planning, an adult video company known for its simulated rape movies whose current sales drive provides the chance to have an all-the-way romp with a porn actress, according to Asahi Geino (1/23).
"The date is Feb. 16. We've got a place set up in Tokyo.
We don't mind whatever man comes along as long as he wants to have sex.
We'd be delighted to accept any application," a Bakky spokesman tells Asahi Geino.
Bakky started planning its campaign from around the summer of last year and began looking for men to take part in the project toward the end of 2002.
The company has made no secret that it wants its campaign to be part of a record-breaking effort.
"In 1995, a Singaporean porn actress in the United States set a world record for consecutive sex.
She had intercourse with 251 people in just 10 hours.
We are aiming to set a new world record.
We will record the event, but don't have any plans to market it," the spin-doctor says.
With Bakky aiming for the Guinness Book of Records, there'll only be the single actress there to serve guys interested in taking part.
The company is keeping her identity a strict secret in the lead-up to the challenge, but has released a couple of statements from her.
"To be honest, the pay is lousy but I really wanted to have a try at getting into the Guinness Book of Records," her statement says.
"My privates are weak and I feel pain easily.
But I've steeled myself to playing around with any number of men on the day."
Though any man is welcome to take part, there are a couple of rules that will narrow down the field.
"She'll be lying down on top of a bed, defenseless and waiting. Order will be decided according to who is ready to begin.
Participants are free to kiss and lick as much as they like, but there will be no unprotected sex and participants must wear a condom.
Each participant will be given five minutes a time.
Considering the time limitations, there will be no fellatio and we'd prefer it if people restricted themselves to the missionary
At the moment, Bakky is in a bit of trouble with the project - it's nowhere near getting the 251-plus people it needs to set a new record.
"We're only getting applicants through word of mouth and from our Website, but at this stage we've only got about 20 people who want to take part," the spokesman says.
"If we don't get enough people (to break the record), we'll let those who're capable of doing so to saddle up as often as they can until we get past 251 times."
And the mystery actress looking to go down in history is also urging more men to come along.
"The day of the event is two days after Valentine's Day," she tells Asahi Geino.
"I'll cover my erogenous zones in chocolate, so everybody can come over here and lick the chocolate off."
