Nyotaimori

Post by Lily Harlem


Hello and welcome to the Brit Babes blog. It's my turn to chat today and I must be feeling hungry because the sudden urge to post some fabulous nyotaimori pictures rushed over me...

So what is nyotaimori?

Nyotaimori is the ancient Japanese tradition of eating sushi from a naked woman. Often referred to as "body sushi". It's maybe not to everyone's taste but pictures like this intrigued me enough to want to find out more. Here goes on the science bit ;-)

Before service, the individual takes a bath using a special fragrance-free soap - that's good, wouldn't want perfumes interfering with the flavours - and then finishes off with a splash of cold water to chill the body down for the sushi. 

To be a living sushi platter, the woman is trained to lie down for hours without moving or speaking. She (or he on occasion) must also be able to withstand the prolonged exposure to cold food, for sushi is served fresh from the refrigerator. It is also a good idea if the body is free from excessive hair! Wouldn't want that mixed in with your tuna roll.



People have different opinions on this tradition and it has sparked the interest of the international community. Promoters say nyotaimori is a form of art. Whereas some feminists argue that it objectives women by quite literally turning their bodies into a plate. Personally I'm quite fascinated by it, not by the food so much as the woman. Why she would lay with food on her body? What must it feel like to have people - strangers - plucking it from her with chopsticks and listening to the conversations going on overhead.


The whole experience however is not particularly cheap,  tickets for a naked sushi night range from $75 to $250 - with sake and champagne.




I was inspired so much by this unusual way of enjoying sushi that it forms the first few chapters of my novella DESSERT which is part of Ellora's Cave for Men line (stories written entirely from the male point of view). Of course, me being me, its not just the food that's hot and spicy and the dessert, well, let's just say it's not something typically found on a restaurant menu...

Nyotaimori was new for me, eating my dinner off a beautiful, naked woman an experience I’d never been lucky enough to indulge in. So when a customer treated me to a meal at The Geisha Plate it was an effort to keep my cock under control and my focus on the food. Damn, it had been a while!

But control myself I did until, that is, the spice levels cranked to boiling point and dessert turned out to be a mind-blowing, soul-twistingly delicious blowjob. I instantly craved more.

Plus I’m not a guy who likes debt, I had to return the favor by hook or by crook, it was an urge that threatened to consume me. Luckily my lovely Geisha girl turned out to be the sweetest woman I’d ever had the pleasure of pleasuring, and her healthy appetite for getting raw and naked with me for starters, main course and dessert turned out to be a wild ride for my every fantasy, and enough to keep me more than satisfied in every department.

Reader Review - "At last a writer who understands that, in order to entertain men, the action does not have to be dominant and rough. Men like soft, sensual and caring too and are not all turned on by S&M. Five stars are not enough, I can't wait to read more of Lily's 'for men' stories."



So what do you all think. Would you rather be the plate or the diner? If you could switch sushi to another food, what would you go for? And would a man make as delicious a plate?

  1. I would rather be the diner and preferably off an equally delicious man. I'm pretty sure I couldn't lie still for long enough and my stomach would be rumbling too lol. It would be interesting to listen to people's conversations as you're lying there though ;)
