Come and “Joby”: erotic circumnavigation.

Interesting how many different traditions people observe our planet! Among them special place is occupied by all kinds of erotic rituals. Some of them seem representatives of other cultures are funny, ridiculous, or even creepy…

Japan.

An ancient sexual tradition with the poetic name “Joby” lived in villages of Japan until the late nineteenth century. It seems that to this day somewhere in the province it exists. “Stalker of the night” – roughly translates as her name. The gist of it is this: anyone not afraid of this word, who wants a young man under the cover of night to sneak into the house unmarried and longed for, Yes to get in her bed, under the covers. Thus, to act in a “horror, flying on the wings of the night” must necessarily naked. Otherwise, it can be mistaken for a burglar.

What to give to Japanese for the New Year

In Japan it is impossible to give for the New Year

(these were my first ideas, which were immediately rejected):

You can not give the rake – the ritual wreath that hung on the front door of every Japanese home.

Many Japanese told me that they have no tradition to give presents for the New Year. Well, you can give something without a specific topic, but not necessarily. Simvolicheskie gifts some in Japan give employees, neighbors, relatives. See photos from new year’s Japanese stores, what the Japanese give gifts for the New year .

And yet I found a solution.

Before the New Year, every Japanese home on the table or tokonoma put special ritual food – Kagami mochi (sounds like `urine`) for happiness and a harvest year. Made from special mochi sticky rice and sold in any supermarket, the store is `100 yen`, of course these factory mass consumption products not fit for gift. But if you make the mochi themselves (which is pretty hard) – it will be a perfectly acceptable gift for the Japanese.

Also in Japan there are many shops producing mochi in the old style, manually. They are not cheap, and if you have a fairly close relationship to the family, where you want to make Continue reading

Interesting facts about South Korea


Interesting facts about South Korea

The most important and interesting facts about South Korea .

South Korea is among the Developed countries;

South Korea leader in medicine among Asian countries. Medicine in South Korea is one of the best in the world! Successfully conducted operations on oncological diseases(cancer), plastic surgery, dentistry, etc.;

Neither in North nor in South Korea do not accept each other as a separate independent country. South Korea believes the North part of the North the Communists, i.e. the handful of people keeping the people fearful and submissive. North Korea considers South Korea’s colonized part of the US.

From the above it follows that the citizens of North Korea are nationals of South Korea, i.e., automatically granted citizenship in South Korea. The same offers North Korea – but I don’t think anyone in their right mind wish to give up citizenship in South Korea for citizenship in North Korea.

The most hardworking people in the world are residents of South Korea – according to Forbеs. The total number of annual working hours is 2 thousand 357 hours. Next come the Greeks, Czechs, Hungarians, Poles, Norway, Germany, Holland. The U.S. and Germany.
