Sexual customs of different countries

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. And here is the woman who decides to make a delightful heart of oak “yobai” or to drive him away.

AMAZING JAPAN: gifts for Japanese New Year

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.

Japanese rake

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

Mikhail Terentyev – Russia and England in Central Asia.

RUSSIA AND ENGLAND IN CENTRAL ASIA

Two words to the reader.

Our recent successes in Central Asia gave rise in Western Europe a whole literature. In England, every surprise, every step of our forward, will certainly cause a storm. Newspapers and magazines, various colors, filled articles that discussed the medium-aziatskii question not only his past and present but in the future. This future is the British some menacing Ghost, a nightmare. They resort to all sorts of spells to get rid of him.

The wealth of Western European literature, on a matter so closely concerning Russia, makes it even more striking our poverty in this regard. The main space, immediately catches the eyes of every researcher is the lack of information about our diplomatic relations.

Nekotorye foreign government official periodically published collections of diplomatic documents, (blue, Krasnya, etc. books), these sometimes serve only until a source, as they are placed and Russian dispatches.

Working, from 1870, on the compilation “History of the Conquests of Russia in Central Asia” (prepared for printing), I have collected a lot of material Continue reading
