Human Sushi Bar
Nyotaimori (from Japanese: 女体盛り, "female body presentation"), often referred to as "body sushi", is the practice of eating sashimi or sushi from the body of a woman, typically naked. As a result of being served on a human body, the temperature of the sushi or sashimi comes closer to body temperature, which some may see as a downside or a benefit.
Another variation of the human platter is the "bondage sushi bar", which can be found in some BDSM conventions and play parties in the US, Britain and Europe. In this variation, the woman acting as a living sushi plate is tied up to hinder movement or prevent it altogether.
Procedures for the human platter
Before becoming a living sushi platter, the woman is trained to lie down for hours without moving. She must also be able to withstand the prolonged exposure to the cold food. Her body hair, including pubic hair, would also be shaved or removed as a display of pubic hair may be seen as a sexual act.
Before service, the woman would take a bath using a special fragrance-free soap and then finish off with a splash of cold water to cool the body down somewhat for the sushi.
In some parts of in world, in order to comply with sanitation laws, there must be a layer of plastic or other material between the sushi and the body of the woman or man. Wrapping a naked woman in cling film may also be regarded as a form of fetishism.
(Japanese: わかめ酒), also seaweed sake, is a sexual act involving drinking alcohol from a woman's body. The woman closes her legs tight enough that the triangle between the thighs and Mound of Venus form a cup, and then pours sake down her chest into this triangle. Her partner then drinks the sake from there. The name comes from the idea that the woman's pubic hair in the sake resembles soft seaweed ([akame) floating in the sea.
It is similar to Nyotaimori (eating sushi off of a woman's body), and similarly uncommon.
Even less common, but not unheard of, is the practice of using a male model for the same purpose, this would be called 男体盛り, nantaimori.
Ito Hirobumi, the first prime minister of Japan, was quite a lover of female beauty and is well known as having quite an interest in nyotaimori, to the point that his name is primarily associated with the practice. He is sometimes said to be the originator.
The last prime minister of the U.K. John Major once sat down to a meal served on a naked woman at a summit meeting in a region of France but it has never been named after him.
Lady Caroline Lamb was the wife of a british prime minister, Lord Melbourne. She is fabled to have once had her self served up in a soup turine. In the British Isles the tradition of naked women having food served on them has been called after her.
