Love, Sex and Democracy in Japan during the American OccupationFaculty of Arts - Papers (Archive)
AbstractThe idea for this book came about while seated reviewing some early postwar publications in the unfortunately named "Perverts Museum" in Kagaurazaka, Tokyo, in 2004. I was at that time collecting documents about early postwar sexual minority subcultures for my book Queer Japan from the Pacific War to the Internet Age. Although I was mainly interested in on hetersexual expressions of sex and romance at the time, one illustration in a very dog-eared copy of Modan Nippon (Modern Japan), a kind of general-interest pulp magazine common in the years following the end of the war, caught my eye. The illustration accompanied an article on the newly introduced practice of coeducation.
