The things I do for love…

Well, not exactly me, I concider my self among the lucky ones that share the same interests with their other half.

While browsing through my RSS this morning, I stumbled upon this post at Heisei Democracy (which btw is an excellent site for those of you who have an interest in Japanese culture).

Shipon, one of the editors at HD, says he is forced to part with most of his doujinshi because his girlfriend does not allow them. To those of you who are unfamiliar with this scene, there are some works that the word “extreme” fails to describe and I can understand that many people will find them disturbing. But collecting doujinshi is a hobby that requires quite the dedication. We are talking about rare pieces here (well in some cases), and about material that can hardly be found outside Japan.

Now don’t get me wrong, I believe that in order for a relationship to be successful, mutual sacrifices are required, but I find this too much. I mean if the guy wanted to have those things in plain view I could understand his wife wanting him to put them away. But this?

    Poor fellow…I don’t know what i would do if I had to give up my eroguru collection (which, between us, can be much more disturbing than a doujinshi collection…)
