I never knew they have machines for porn as well. Cool!

…or for “used” undies.

I live there for a number of years. My SO took a photo of a Coke machine protected inside of a bamboo hut, sitting at a crossroads between four big farms. It was charming in a Green Acres kind of way.

Also, before anyone gets too excited, the porn they sell in those machines is normally scat.

If you liked these photos, you’ll probably enjoy the array of close-ups I took in Japan earlier this year:

There’s a Pepsi machine among them.

Incidentally, the used panty machines get a lot of play in the media, but this was my seventh trip and I’ve never spotted one. I’ve read that they’re cracking down on that trade.
(sorry)

I’m sad they don’t have a picture of the live lobster claw machines.
