"I wanted to do it every night," the Hyogo Prefecture resident relates in
Uramono Japan. "It got to the point that my husband couldn't stand it any
longer and began sleeping on the sofa.
"As a woman, I found that insulting. So I had no choice but to turn to
masturbation. Before long I was doing it constantly, bringing myself to orgasm
like, uh, 15 times a day.
"But it wasn't enough to satisfy me. I eventually turned to prowling encounter
sites on the Web looking for a man who could do me properly."
But that wasn't as easy as it seemed. Hisamoto continues:
"I figured one guy would be enough to satisfy me, but wound up doing it with
about 30 guys. Multiple times too. Must have come to 300 or 400 all together."
Hisamoto consulted a physician and after undergoing a battery of
self-administered tests and consultations, was informed by the doc that she
suffered from full-blown sex dependency disorder.
She was prescribed an antidepressant, but the medication didn't have any
dramatic effect. Thinking some group therapy might be beneficial, the doctor
advised her to attend a meeting of "Circle X."
Last February, Hisamono relates in her Uramono Japan monologue, 16 of them --
young, old, male and female -- got together in Osaka for a group therapy
session. Seated in a circle, they began to relate their tales of woe.
From the topics they discussed, this group of sexaholics might have been more
appropriately named "Circle XXX."
"My name is Acchan and I'm from Kobe," the first man, eyes cast downward,
mutters in the way of self introduction. "I was so hooked to adult sites on the
Internet that I'd spend all day in net cafes, and never go to work."
"When I turned 60, my wife divorced me after I forced her to attend a swapping
party," a second confesses.
"I was sentenced to do time in prison for procuring underaged teenage hookers,"
another one admits. "I did it with 80 of them."
As Hisamoto sat there, transfixed, the tales of sexual woes became increasingly
"I procured porno videos and women's erotic manga by the hundreds," weeps a
19-year-old youth. "Their accumulated weight became so heavy it nearly caused
the second story floor of my house to collapse."
"I'm gay," confesses a 24-year-old employed at a night club. "My lifestyle was
so promiscuous I developed a prolapsed rectum and it eventually became
Some participants found it excruciatingly hard to get their problems off their
chest. Understandable, perhaps, in the following case.
"I ... I ... I ... have always liked animals ..." a middle-aged male of short
stature stammers. But try as he might, he couldn't bring himself to get to the
root of his rooting problem, as they say in Australia.
"Come on," another member exhorts him. "It's all right. We're all together on
this. Give it your best shot."
"I ... I screwed ... a ... fish!!" he finally blurts out. "A Prussian carp. And
His listeners' jaws slackened in amazement. You could have heard a pin drop at
Thanks to the group therapy sessions and support from her understanding hubby,
Hisamoto tells Uramono Japan that she's on the road to both psychological and
Wait a second, did she say "satisfaction"? And suspiciously, the word
"recovery" appears to be lacking entirely. Er, madam, can you be a little more
specific about that reference to satisfaction?
Oho -- it seems that Hisamoto hooked up with one of the hornier male members of
Circle X, and the two of them have discovered that their perennially horny
condition can be alleviated by mutual therapy, between consenting adults in
private, as it goes.
So for the time being, at least, Hisamoto and her newfound friend are having
too much fun fornicating to seek a further therapy.
