Nyotaimori ~ Eating Sushi off a woman's bare body



Another way to eat Sushi.

When food is prepared, it’s always nice to have it presented in an appealing way. However, if you are very hungry and the food you like is in front of you, but presented on a naked woman’s body – usually a beautiful Model.


  • Would the food still be appealing to you?
  • Would you totally lose your appetite?
  • Would you stay hungry because you don’t want to uncover anything?
  • or would you keep on going back for more, until there was nothing left?


This type of presentation is accepted in Japan and it’s called Nyotaimori – the Japanese tradition of eating Sushi off a perfectly still, naked woman’s body. (sometimes men too). It makes me laugh because it’s just the sort of thing that could enrage diehard feminists in Europe, who will see it in a different view. I have nothing against it. People should be free to eat how and what they want, but I wouldn’t give it a go.

Is this something you would like to try sometime or would you like to be the Model? Could be male or female. (◕‿◕)


Bon Appetit...

So where in Chicago??

Elena (author) from London, UK on March 09, 2015:

Thanks poetryman.

"Bon Appetit" for whenever you visit one.

poetryman6969 on February 03, 2015:

Certainly an attractive presentation.

Elena (author) from London, UK on July 29, 2014:

Hi Maria,

There are a lot of them in America. Google "Nyotaimori" and you will be surprised at what comes up. Maybe view with one eye closed too. :-)

Maria on July 27, 2014:

Where at in Chicago?????

Elena (author) from London, UK on May 17, 2013:

@GetitScence Lol. I'll start working on that then. Thanks for stopping by.

Dale Anderson from The High Seas on May 13, 2013:

You have combined two of my favorite things here, food and naked ladies. If you could work sailing in here somehow I would be in heaven.

Elena (author) from London, UK on May 17, 2012:

@Katheryn... Oh you funny lady. Well, I guess you will just have to grin and bear it. Bon Appetit. :-)

Katheryn on May 16, 2012:

what if the model had to fart

Elena (author) from London, UK on May 04, 2012:

@rasta1 Actually that's a good idea. You could even tell a few jokes and the model will have no choice but to laugh out loud and apologise to customers.

Thanks for stopping. :-)

Marvin Parke from Jamaica on May 04, 2012:

Looks daring. I don't think I could pull it off. I would probable try to talk to the model or dinner plate.

Elena (author) from London, UK on April 27, 2012:

@Ruchira - Don't worry. If you lose your appetite, I'll ask them to pack your sushi in a special bag, so you can eat it at home, with no bodies moving. :-)

@Paul - I honestly laughed out loud at your comment because the Hub has had mixed reactions as you can see... then you came along - all enthusiastic, ready to eat. lol and yes, I'll make sure the restaurant gives you an extra bag to take home too. Cheers Paul. :-)

Elena (author) from London, UK on April 27, 2012:

@Ardie - I know how you feel. I am fussy like that too... so much so, I hardly eat salad in restaurants. Good of you to stop by.

@VocalCoach - Oh... you would make the models feel so at ease. You have such a positive approach about it. lol.


paulgc on April 27, 2012:

Mmm, looks good, wonder if i would be allowed to take a doggy bag home lol.

Very interesting hub,Voted up and useful.

Ruchira from United States on April 26, 2012:

Gosh...I would just lose my

Interesting hub :)

Audrey Hunt from Pahrump NV on April 25, 2012:

I had not heard of Nyotaimori until now, so this is really interesting. The photos are lovely as is the presentation of the sushi and flowers.

Thank you Lady_E for teaching me about this. I'm voting up and interesting as I always appreciate learning something new!

Sondra from Neverland on April 25, 2012:

hmm, I don't think I could do this. I would be weirded out by grabbing a spork and stabbing it into a piece of sushi that was touched by another person (the body). Im all freaky about germs haha voted up and interesting

Elena (author) from London, UK on April 25, 2012:

@RG Nestle - One man's meat is another man's poison. Thanks for stopping.

@AudreyHowitt - It wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, Audrey. However, this is happening. Thanks for dropping by to comment.

Audrey Howitt from California on April 25, 2012:

Yes, I am not sure how I feel about this--a part of me really feels that this is awful and another part of me can see how this might be aesthetically pleasing

RGNestle from Seattle on April 25, 2012:

Stupid is just stupid. Some idiot had nothing better to do than to find a way to 1) degrade another human being and 2)make something stupid seem like "high society".

Some people should just get out of the gene pool.

Elena (author) from London, UK on April 25, 2012:

@Dexter - Oh you brave man. lol. It certainly would be fun. Go for it. Cheers Dexter.

@AlwaysExploring - Hi Ruby, good point. What will they think of next? Thanks so much for stopping. Regards.

Elena (author) from London, UK on April 25, 2012:

@Raakachi - I was thinking along those lines too.... about what goes on in the head of the woman, just lying there. Lovely of you to stop by. Thanks

@Pamela - Lol. Maybe they are sedated because they can't move a muscle. They have to remain so still, even if a bee was buzzing in their ears. Thanks Pamela.

Elena (author) from London, UK on April 25, 2012:

@Carolina - Wow... you have them near you. You are so right about Jealous girlfriends. Poor guy wouldn't be able to enjoy his food. Thanks for stopping.

@Prasetio - Sometimes people like to try something new. lol. Good to see you. Thanks for stopping.

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on April 25, 2012:

What an interesting idea..What will they think of next? HaHa..I see nothing wrong if someone wants to do it..I would have to decline, plus i'd be jealous of that beautiful body...LOL

Dexter Yarbrough from United States on April 25, 2012:

I had never heard of this. Interesting idea. I would certainly give it a try just for the adventure. It doesn't appear as though the food is actually on the naked body. And I am sure that there are health codes that have to be followed (especially in the US). I think it would be a fun evening!

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on April 25, 2012:

This is something I have never seen this before and it made for an interesting article. I can't imagine eating food off of another persons and I sure wouldn't like being a model. I think you would almost have to be sedated to lie so still. Voted up and interesting.

raakachi from Madurai / Tamilnadu / India on April 24, 2012:

This i couldn't hear it before.How is it possible for both the model and the eater? The model has to remain silent, as like as a sleeping person and the eater, how he able to eat the dishes as remaining like a stone without expressing his feelings? I just can't imagine.Any how you have projected a different type of dining.Thanks for sharing with.Voted as interesting.

prasetio30 from malang-indonesia on April 24, 2012:

Wow..I never thought about this before and I can't imagine that I'll have lunch above the woman body. Thanks for share with us. It's very unique hub. Rated up and awesome.


Caroline Marie on April 24, 2012:

Hi Lady this is a very interesting hub. They have some places here in Chicago that do this. In one of the Sex and the City movies I think Samantha tried the same thing. LOL. I don't think this would work for me. I'd not really be into eating food off another person male or female that I don't know. I could also see some jealous girlfriends out there making a big deal about it if their on a date. LOL. Thanks for sharing.
