Fulfilling a growing market in Japan, a popular cross-dressing Japanese male porn star has introduced a line of sexy feminine wear, specially for men.
AV idol Kaoru Oshima came up with the intimate male apparel after noticing a surge in the number of Japanese men who love cross-dressing as women.
These cross-dressers, known as Otoko no ko (男の娘 which means “male daughter” or “male girl”), don’t have a lot of options when looking for items to wear on special occasions, according to SoraNews24.
It is important to note, however, that the concept of Otoko no ko does not indicate a particular sexual identity or gender identity, and may be of any sexual orientation, according to Kotaku. Often associated with otaku culture, the phenomenon has given rise to the cosplay of female fictional characters by men, maid cafés, and eventually fashion stores as well.
As one of the most famous Otoko no ko in Japan, Oshima aims to provide men with clothes and lingerie that will “make other women jealous.”
While the new fashion line is designed specifically for men, Oshima said women are also welcome to wear the sexy outfits too.
Available only for a limited time until September 30, Oshima’s outfits can be purchased online at Village Vanguard.
As an added incentive for his customers, Oshima will even attach a special autographed photo of himself with each purchased item.
