This highly speculative and provocative research design project focuses on the social phenomenon of the yaramiso man. A new social group created from Japan’s sexualised pop-culture and the abundance of artificial sex objects and technology stimulating the masturbatory experience, this project sets out to explore what the future of sex and intimacy entails for the yaramiso man. The project is set in a dystopian reality where masturbatory sex is a normalised ritual within Shinjuku Station in Tokyo, Japan, facilitated by the sex robot- the ultimate artificial sex stimulant.
