To my surprise, this throwaway joke was met with legitimate curiosity both online and off. One friend replied that he would totally pay for me to get inked with this phrase, while a work colleague asked if tentacle porn was actually a thing. When I brought this up in a meeting which, as a sex editor, is something I can absolutely do , the room was divided between those who were shocked tentacle porn exists and those who were shocked others didn't know it exists.
For erotic manga artist Toshio Maeda, tentacle porn was a genre born from necessity, or rather, a need to artfully circumvent Japan's censorship laws. In a interview , Maeda explained that, in Japan, "extreme" erotic animations, or hentai, with explicitly illustrated sex acts could potentially get his editors arrested, so he decided to use tentacles as a substitute for male genitalia. Tentacles "are like hands and legs or like, uh, just body parts, so it's OK to go there," he explained. It was a move that secured his place in hentai fandom as the self-appointed " tentacle master ," but now, a new crop of women illustrators and porn producers are working to subvert rape culture and gendered tropes in the genre dominated by male artists. Maeda may be credited as a porn pioneer, but the history of erotic tentacle imagery can be traced back to The Dream Of The Fisherman's Wife , a 19th century woodblock print by Japanese artist Hokusai and work of vintage porn highlighted on Mad Men.
