Comedian Masako Ohara, 34, has made her first foray into the world of nude photography by appearing naked on the cover of her self-deprecating book, called "Oharateki renaidou sekirara" ("Love Ohara-style Bare and Upfront.")
Inside, Ohara speaks of her luck in love, or the lack of it, touching upon her flings and affairs that have seen her with 19 men since she was 16. She writes how one man made her buy a portable toothbrush kit so as to hide the signs of a night at his place, and how another registered her in his cell phone under his boss' name.
She said: "You never know what will happen with love," and said she hopes the book will serve as a real-life reference for some women, helping them to avoid relationship failures. Her partner in comedy duo "Kuwabata Ohara," Eri Kuwabata, 33, last year married the younger man she had been seeing for three years.
"Oharateki renaidou sekirara" goes on sale March 26 for 1,260 yen.© Japan Today
