The band uses the image of "shock rockers" by wearing crazy, exotic outfits like visual kei bands, although this image has been toned down, especially since 2003 when the long-term bassist Noisy left the band.The lyrics feature very off-beat and non-serious themes (the superior quality of Satsuma fruits in Ehime prefecture, minor annoyance in family restaurants, etc.).Sex Machineguns (stylized as SEX MACHINEGUNS) is a Japanese heavy metal band formed in 1989.
Enjo-kōsai does not always involve some form of sexual activity.
In the opposite case of women paying men, it is called gyaku-enjo-kōsai The nature of enjo-kōsai is heavily contested within Japan.
means "compensated dating" and is the Japanese language term for the practice of older men giving money and/or luxury gifts to attractive young women for their companionship or possibly for sexual favors.
The female participants range from school girls (aka JK business) to housewives.
Anthropologist Laura Miller argues in her research that the majority of enjo-kōsai dates consists of groups of girls going with a group of older men to a karaoke bar for several hours and being paid for their time.
Furthermore, in a 1998 survey by the Asian Women's Fund, researchers found that fewer than 10 percent of all high school girls engage in enjo-kōsai and over 90 percent of the girls interviewed attested to feeling uncomfortable with the exchange or purchase of sexual services for money.In 1998, Sex Machineguns made their commercial debut with the release of their first single on Toshiba-EMI Records: "Hanabi-la Daikaiten".The single sold out instantly, and it was decided they would go on a debut tour (which sold out in every location).The most common connotation is that it is a form of child prostitution whereby participating girls sell their bodies in exchange for designer goods or money.However, enjo-kōsai is distinct from the most basic definition of prostitution (whereby a person attains money through the exchange of sexual acts) and insist that these other activities define enjo-kōsai.In 2008 Anchang formed the band Big Bites, with Natchin (Siam Shade) and Annie (The Yellow Monkey).
