It's the latest fashion craze in anime-loving Japan
JAPAN has gone crazy for a skimpy sweater designed to drive nerdy young men wild.
But what is the virgin-killing sweater, and where does the name come from?
What is the virgin-killing sweater?
The virgin-killing sweater is a skimpy jumper which is supposed to drive men wild.
It’s a backless turtle neck, designed to show off some side boob – and has gone viral after being released in online shops.
The jumper has been labelled the doutei wo korosu, a phrase which suggests it would excite a virgin man so much that he would die.
Rocket News 24 wrote: “While the ample front coverage and high collar mean that the sweater leaves no cleavage whatsoever on display, it’s extremely open on the sides and at the back, promising plenty of side-boob and even a peek at the top edge of the buttocks.”
How popular is the virgin-killing sweater in Japan?
It’s easy to see the appeal for blokes, but it’s unknown how popular the virgin-killing sweater is with members of the female sex.
Many Japanese men are notoriously scared of the opposite sex with some bashful blokes choosing the company of virtual holographic wives over the attentions of real ladies.
These shy blokes are often referred to as “grass-eaters” or “herbivores” and exist in such large numbers that they have been blamed for causing the nation’s fertility crisis.
They are known to turn to highly sexualised cartoons to quench their frustration.
Who is the glamour model wearing the virgin-killing sweater?
Model Jun Amaki, 21, known as the “woman with the anime body”, is the latest endorsement for the pullover.
Her set of Instagram pictures have been liked thousands of times, with over 169,000 views on the videos.
The jumper has since become a favourite of Japanese girls and women attending comic shows and in fashion shoots.Adorable video of penguins at Matsue Vogel Park in Japan in Santa outfits
