Hentai

Outside of Japan, hentai is anime and manga pornography. In the Japanese language, however, "hentai" is not a genre of media but any type of perverse or bizarre sexual desire or act. For example, outside of Japan a work of animation depicting lesbian sex might be described as "yuri hentai", but in Japan it would just be described as "yuri"; the word is short for a perverse sexual desire. The original meaning of hentai in the Japanese language is metamorphosis; the implication of perversion or paraphilia was derived from there. Both meanings can be distinguished in context easily. Hentai is a kanji compound of 変 and 態, it means "perversion" or "abnormality" when used as an adjective. It is the shortened form of the phrase hentai seiyoku which means "sexual perversion"; the character hen is catch-all for queerness as a peculiarity—it does not carry an explicit sexual reference. While the term has expanded in use to cover a range of publications including homosexual publications, it remains a heterosexual term, as terms indicating homosexuality entered Japan as foreign words.

Japanese pornographic works are simply tagged as 18-kin, meaning "prohibited to those not yet 18 years old", seijin manga. Less official terms in use include ero anime, ero manga, the English initialism AV. Usage of the term hentai does not define a genre in Japan. Hentai is defined differently in English; the Oxford Dictionary Online defines it as "a subgenre of the Japanese genres of manga and anime, characterized by overtly sexualized characters and sexually explicit images and plots." The origin of the word in English is unknown, but AnimeNation's John Oppliger points to the early 1990s, when a Dirty Pair erotic doujinshi titled H-Bomb was released, when many websites sold access to images culled from Japanese erotic visual novels and games. The earliest English use of the term traces back to the rec.arts.anime boards. A 1995 glossary on the rec.arts.anime boards contained reference to the Japanese usage and the evolving definition of hentai as "pervert" or "perverted sex". The Anime Movie Guide, published in 1997, defines "ecchi" as the initial sound of hentai.

A year it was defined as a genre in Good Vibrations Guide to Sex. At the beginning of 2000, "hentai" was listed as the 41st most-popular search term of the internet, while "anime" ranked 99th; the attribution has been applied retroactively to works such as Urotsukidōji, La Blue Girl, Cool Devices. Urotsukidōji had been described with terms such as "Japornimation", "erotic grotesque", prior to being identified as hentai; the history of the word hentai has its origins in psychology. By the middle of the Meiji era, the term appeared in publications to describe unusual or abnormal traits, including paranormal abilities and psychological disorders. A translation of German sexologist Richard von Krafft-Ebing's text Psychopathia Sexualis originated the concept of hentai seiyoku, as a "perverse or abnormal sexual desire". Though it was popularized outside psychology, as in the case of Mori Ōgai's 1909 novel Vita Sexualis. Continued interest in hentai seiyoku resulted in numerous journals and publications on sexual advice which circulated in the public, served to establish the sexual connotation of hentai as perverse.

Any perverse or abnormal act could be hentai, such as committing shinjū. It was Nakamura Kokyo's journal Abnormal Psychology which started the popular sexology boom in Japan which would see the rise of other popular journals like Sexuality and Human Nature, Sex Research and Sex. Tanaka Kogai wrote articles for Abnormal Psychology, but it would be Tanaka's own journal Modern Sexuality which would become one of the most popular sources of information about erotic and neurotic expression. Modern Sexuality was created to promote fetishism, S&M, necrophilia as a facet of modern life; the ero-guro movement and depiction of perverse and erotic undertones were a response to interest in hentai seiyoku. Following World War II, Japan took a new interest in public sexuality. Mark McLelland puts forth the observation that the term hentai found itself shortened to "H" and that the English pronunciation was "etchi", referring to lewdness and which did not carry the stronger connotation of abnormality or perversion.

By the 1950s, the "hentai seiyoku" publications became their own genre and included fetish and homosexual topics. By the 1960s, the homosexual content was dropped in favor of subjects like sadomasochism and stories of lesbianism targeted to male readers; the late 1960s brought a sexual revolution which expanded and solidified the normalizing the terms identity in Japan that continues to exist today through publications such as Bessatsu Takarajima's Hentai-san ga iku series. With the usage of hentai as any erotic depiction, the history of these depictions is split into their media. Japanese artwork and comics serve as the first example of hentai material, coming to represent the iconic style after the publication of Azuma Hideo's Cybele in 1979. Japanese animation had its first hentai, in both definitions, with the 1984 release of Wonderkid's Lolita Anime, overlooking the erotic and sexual depictions in 1969's One Thousand and One Arabian Nights and the bare-breasted Cleopatra in 1970's Cleopatra film.

Jack in the Box (song)

"Jack in the Box", written by David Myers and composed by John Worsley, was the United Kingdom's entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, performed by the Northern Irish singer Clodagh Rodgers. The singer expresses her strong feelings of love to a man who treats her like a toy, thus providing the "jack in the box" simile, as she feels that in exchange of his love, she would gladly "bounce on a spring" like the aforementioned toy. At the end of the song, she lets this man know that one day she will be fed up enough to leave, so she hopes he will tell her he loves her, as she will do anything to hear those words. On 20 February 1971 Rodgers sang six songs at the UK National Final, A Song for Europe, aired on the television series It's Cliff Richard!. Rodgers was chosen by the BBC to be the United Kingdom's representative for that year, with the intent to ease tensions between Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Due to a postal service strike, regional juries voted and picked "Jack in the Box," the third song performed that evening, to accompany Rodgers to Dublin.

Rodgers said she received death threats from the Irish Republican Army for representing the United Kingdom at Eurovision. In 1971, each national broadcaster was required to show "preview" videos. At Dublin, the song was performed ninth on the night, after Luxembourg's Monique Melsen with "Pomme, pomme", before Belgium's Lily Castel and Jacques Raymond with "Goeiemorgen, Morgen." For the performance Rodgers spangled hot pants. At the end of judging that evening, "Jack in the Box" took the fourth-place slot with 98 points. After Eurovision, the song placed at #4 on the UK Singles Chart, it remains her most famous hit. This song features prominently in the Monty Python's Flying Circus episode "The Cycling Tour", in which an eccentric inventor named Mr. Reginald Gulliver believes, as a result of head trauma, that he is Clodagh Rodgers. At the end of the episode, two Terry Gilliam-animated monsters, who have been eyeing the cyclist lead character, Mr. Pither, from behind a bush, wait until Pither is gone, jump out and start dancing to Rodgers' rendition of "Jack in the Box."
