Here is a good collection of Japanese leaflets directed at Allied troops.

(I'm not sure if I've posted a link to this page in the distant past. If I have, I can't find it. I've seen some of these leaflets before but I can't recall if I've seen this page before, which I found tonight while looking for something else.)

That provided a hell of an interesting read, RS* my friend, many, many thanks for the link.

It is strange to see the contrasts though: some of the leaflets were exceptionally well done, while others were completely risible.
I'd be inclined to think the author of the article is correct though: they'd have been wiser to have employed a better translator in the first place, in many cases.

Kind and Respectful Regards RS* my friend, Uyraell.

Why the Japanese were literaly obsessed by the sexual context in their propogand to aussians?
May be they subconsciously wanted to Japane be liberated by Red Army? To learn thesexual tolerance lesson?:mrgreen:

Everybody was obsessed with sex in this sort of troops-oriented propaganda.

And some of it is good quality work.

(IIRC there's a better version of this article somewhere, with clickable pictures, but I can't find it.)

Well, they might have until about May - June 1945 but, being a nation heavily reliant on bicycles, after they saw the Soviet bicycle thieves at work in Germany they decided to take their chances with the motor car focused Yanks. ;) :D

but i've never seen the German produced sexual leaflets for Red Army soldiers.
May be coz Germans was afraid the reds will apply this sex-information on practice just right the RA would reach the Prussia?:mrgreen:

I'm pretty suspicious of any 20 year old or thereabouts who is not obsessed with sex.

ROFL :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
I don't disagree with you there.
Especially those in the various armed forces, regardless of nationality.
My uncle certainly says there were those in his units always on the lookout for a popsie or two to spend free time with.
I have had confirmation of same from the German side of the fence also.

And being honest about the topic of sex: in natural terms anthropologically, that age bracket is right where breeding the next generation is reasonably high on nature's list of priorities. The prospective parents are old enough to be able to function and survive, and have the strength and means to fully support the oncoming generation.

That serving personnel anywhere would seek relief from the pressures of the daily environment by turning to or seeking out sex is axiomatic, only to be expected. There is no room at all for any morality (assuming two adult, willingly consenting partners in the event) or religious consideration whatsoever, within that dynamic.
