    Re: is ecchi bad?

    Just in case some people don't know what ecchi is...

    It is universally agreed that the origin of the Japanese word is the English letter "H". The most common theory states that it derives from the first character of the word hentai (変態), and indeed the two words have similar meanings (although the word hentai cannot be used to refer to sexual intercourse, nor can it be used as a verb). Another theory suggests that the "H" is from the first letter of the word harenchi (破廉恥), a word meaning "shameless" or "lewd".[citation needed] The word originated as a euphemism used by Meiji era female high school and college students in the late 19th century.[citation needed] It became popularized in 1952 with its usage in a serialized novel by Seiichi Funabashi. In the 1990s, it gained its usage as a noun to refer to the sexual act itself. The comedian Sanma Akashiya is often credited with this development and further widespread usage.

    Ecchi as an adjective can be translated as lewd or sexy, while as a verb it can be translated as sexual intercourse, e.g. to do ecchi (ecchi suru) would mean to have sex. The word sekkusu is also used in Japan for sex, and Japanese native words for sex (such as 性交 seikō) are often replaced by words of foreign origin such as sekkusu or neologisms such as ecchi. The nuance of ecchi varies with context, but in general the word itself is comparable in nuance to the English words "naughty" or "dirty" (when used as an adjective). The prefix "H-" is sometimes used to refer to pornographic genres: H-anime, H-manga, etc.
    In my view, I think that America treats nudity the same way Japan treats excessive violence.

    This signature is within the limits upheld by the forum rules. Unless the rules change, do not remove.

    So that's what ecchi means! Well the way I think of it, it wasnt bad if it doesn't effect you too much until you do something bad.

    You should ask him if you haven't yet. If he did, ask him how was it.
