Kaoru Kikuchi


What do you get if you cross an ostrich farmer with an entrepreneur and a hot Asian model? You get the one and only Kaoru Kikuchi, who (as her name suggests) is ethnically Japanese, but is based in Hong Kong. I say ‘based’, as she travels all over Asia for her various projects, which includes the very sexy and funny Sexy Mandarin web site we featured previously. And yes, Sexy Japanese is coming soon – featuring not only Kaoru herself, but also her sister!Born in Tokyo, Japan, she studied architecture in the UK at the behest of her parents, but decided it wasn’t for her. On a whim, she then went to Shanghai to study Mandarin, and soon after became a highly successful business woman. She launched Kozo, her own line of pearls and lingerie, and even started her own ostrich farm in the Philippines. She has also been working as a model for the past two years, and her career seems to really be taking off, with features in FHM Singapore (see the cover shot above), Adversus and Model News. I for one will certainly be following Kaoru’s future endeavours with great interest!

Maxim’s Hot 100 and my 15 Hottest Asians of 2009

Vanessa Hudgens

Each year, the various men’s magazine and websites that are out there come out with their list of the 100 hottest or sexiest women in the world, and each year I’m disappointed by their selections. Either I’m disappointed at who was selected at the #1 spot, their selections in general, or what I pay attention to the most is the lack of Asians that make it onto these lists. Maxim just released their list of the hottest 100 women to coincide with the release of their June issue and I wasn’t too thrilled with who was on it, so I figured it was time for me to make my own list.I’m pretty sure the reason that you don’t find many Asians on one of these lists is due to the fact that there aren’t that many Asian women in mainstream media. Most of the ones that are on Maxim’s list are either part Asian or Indian. That list is as follows:

96. Olivia Munn

95. Padma Lakshmi

89. Jamie Chung

80. Jamie Gunns

49. Freida Pinto

46. Nicole Scherzinger

27. Vanessa Hudgens

20. Moon Bloodgood

I thought Olivia Munn should have been ranked higher than #96 and that Moon Bloodgood should not be at #20. I think Moon looks okay, but to me she is not that hot to be at #20. I’m okay with where the remaining ones are positioned.

It’s easy to criticize one of these lists, and ultimately I needed to create my own because the really hot Asian women are never going to appear on it since they are not in the mainstream media here in America and would not be known to anyone else outside of those who know them already of frequent Asian Sirens. So I decided to put together a list together of who I feel are the top 15 hottest Asians right now. I thought about doing a larger list, but no one is going to remember who placed at which position if I did a list of more than 20 names. Maybe down the road I will put together a larger list, but for now, here is my top 15:

15. Jarah Mariano

Playboy Philippines Non-Nude

Priscilla Meirelles

Bleh, it’s not even Playboy anymore.

A Philippine edition of Playboy will debut on newsstands next week, but the traditionally racy magazine will not show frontal nudity, the editor-in-chief said Thursday.

Beting Laygo Dolor said the monthly magazine — synonymous the world over with centerfolds of bare-breasted women — will feature “anything under the sun of interest to men,” combining the work of investigative journalists and award-winning fiction writers.

Dolor told The Associated Press he believed the predominantly Roman Catholic Philippines would be more tolerant toward Playboy than neighboring Indonesia, where the magazine was met with violent opposition from Islamic groups…

…”If you have something like full frontal nudity, the chances are you will make a lot of enemies in the church, NGOs (non-governmental organizations), even in the government,” he said. “We don’t want to risk our copies being burned.”

He added that local advertisers won’t pay for space in such magazines.

Miss Earth 2004 Priscilla Meirelles will be their first cover girl. I am not impressed. As they say on the imageboards, tits or GTFO. Playboy Philippines is just one big offline Rickroll. Do the publishers think Filipinos are so utterly uninformed as to not know what to expect from Playboy?

Screw the geoeconomic constraints of dead tree media. Filipinos should stick with Asian Sirens for their dose of Filipina beauty.

Update, Apr 03, 08 | 5:12 am: LawBoy just made me realize the first cover girl for Playboy Philippines isn’t even Filipina. Again, Filipinos should stick with Asian Sirens for their dose of Filipina beauty.

Playeur Magazine


There is a new magazine in Singapore called Playeur. “A stylized magazine that is sophisticated and sexy in the same breath” as I am told. So: Esquire meets Playboy? (buy it for the articles? ;-))

Unfortunately their site is far from ready yet, but they promise a revamped website complete with video will be launched some time this fall. Untill then those of you with a Facebook account can check out photos here.

Though most of the models are Asian or of Asian decent, they do on occasion shoot others as well. Nira Chan is the covermodel for the virgin issue and Dawn Yang is in there too. No nude, but sexy photography.
