You realise you're asking about the very nature of esidness don't you? Not everyone leaves because of Japan. Two people placed in the same city, town, building in Japan might have radically different views on why they do or do not like it. Though im nosey too so bring on the responses.

Lasted a year, probably staying in Japan, quitting JET because my placement (keeping it a secret for now because The Enemy is Listening) was hell.

I am not recontracting because I am getting booted out of the program.


8O OOOHHH! I'm a badass! I'm a badass!

I had already reached legendary status before my arrival to Japan. I met new JETs from all over the world at Tokyo Orientation who had already heard about me at their pre-departure orientations. I feel kinda cool... :roll:

Now I am a total badass!!!! :twisted:

There is really only one reason I could see myself not recontracting for the next 3 years or so, and that is if I finally get to the breaking point and decide that I really need to have sex again. Fortunately, I have the internet, porn, and other interests to fill my mind, so I think I can hold out for a while. There is of course always a chance of me hooking up with a local or a new JET, but that is probably unlikely to happen...

Like much of Japanese culture, you have to wade through a lot of really bad Japanese porn to find the golden stuff.

I got this one recently that basically is an indoor soccer game with girls playing soccer topless. When one of them gets a yellow card, they goto the penalty mat in the center of the field where they then have to service a guy. Once completed, they can return to the field of play.

I honestly have considered making a blog to show off some of this stuff but I am afraid of my parents or grandparents finding it.

No, that isn't all I want, which is the problem. I mean, if sex were really the only issue, I would just bang one of the crazy 30+ year old sluts who inhabit various bars in Marugame at 3 AM and be done with it. Unfortunately, I have a bad habit of only really wanting sex with people I like.

I know a few JETs who are leaving this year from Osaka.
Some have done 2 or 3 years and want to start careers back home.
Some have only done 1 year, but only ever planned on doing that and have other things to do (travel, work etc)
Some HATE their placements and would have stayed longer if they were at different schools.
Some have partners they are going home to.

Lains, I wouldn't worry about it. I brought my entire DVD collection with me and, though it didn't have any porn in it, no one checked my movies.

The porn being illegal thing is a surprise to me seeing as how Japan has some of the most disturbing porn I've ever seen and it's sold at every conbini and bookstore in the nation, right next to the children's manga. The Kinokuniya in the city imports Playboys and other rather illicit magazines from the U.S. and a friend of mine pointed out that all of the genetalia had been scratched out. Manually. That is some dude's job. A vagina or a penis is too illicit to be shown, but an octopus tentacle raping a young, crying girl is completely kosher. I love this country.

All they have to do is fuzz the genitals and pubic hair a bit and it's legal in Japan. Because slightly fuzzy porn means that everyone is saved...!

There are restrictions on bootleg stuff though...if they catch you with it, they'll confiscate it. Which almost happened to my friend on her way back from Thailand. However, unless you are coming from Southeast Asia, they usually don't check your junk.
