Nicholas Bornoff ☆ 1 SUMMARY

SUMMARY Å The Pink Samurai The Pursuit and Politics of Sex in Japan To the Western mind the Japanese attitude toward sex is at once bizarrely structured yet refreshingly frank In a land where marriages can still be arranged and a woman1s place is most definitely in the home love hotels dot the landscape and late night t. This book had a lot of things wrong with it in my opinion First and possibly the worst is that it is on the verge of becoming outdated Researched almost 20 years ago much of what Bornoff talks about is no longer accurate of current Japanese culture but that is always one of the problems of books on popular culture It now could be used as a historical reference but for several reason that I will go into belowThe next serious issue of the book is that the author seems to have no understanding of how to use sections and topic sentences I ve rarely read a book that rambles as much as this one did in both large and small scales For one on my version of the book paperback the subtitle is An erotic exploration of Japanese society which varies slightly from the hardback s Love marriage and sex in contemporary Japan Either way we ve got a pretty defined area of research here not to mention one with a lot of material and yet Bornoff can t keep himself from wandering all over the back story of completely unrelated Japanese history and cultural institutions One might think it is done to give a complete understanding of his topic when you can figure it out but rarely does it fulfill such a function Most of the time it came off as Bornoff showing off his knowledge whether it was needed or not And then there are the chapters and chapter sections neither of which are given to flow logically Bornoff hops from one semi andor un related topic to the next sometimes coming back around to what he started with sometimes finishing his thoughts in another section entirely I found it completely frustrating to read as if he were poorly cobbling together hundreds of smaller articlesIn addition to finding it disjointed there were also time when I found it offensive Bornoff claims that he s treating the topic of sex and eroticism nonjudgmentally but I don t think it holds to today s standards of neutrality Perhaps there is a language issue varying connotations to words between British and American English but to me terms such as harlot hooker whore and slut have loaded meanings that I would not expect to see in a serious work and certainly not tossed around lightly the way there are in this book Words and turns of phrases for gays and lesbians were freuently little better and his entire treatment of female pornography stars was slightly discomfiting to say the leastI ve tried not to become too much of an academic snob shunning the cultural exposes of journalists but in this particular instance I don t mind recommending people to steer clear If you want to read about sexuality in Japanese culture there are plenty of books written by people who have reasons to hold to a higher standard peer review tenure reputation and while they might not have as free wheeling a
