Maria Sharapova has supplanted Kournikova as the new hotness, at least when it comes to Japanese bedroom accessories. (mildly NSFW)

But the Japanese page is in Japanese which I can't read. Any hot JPEGs?

er, the tennis player, not the plush Japanese accessory.

The other thing that differentiates her from Kournikova is that she wins things.

Nonononono, our popular novelty pillow is called "Sharanpowan" and *not* "Sharapova". Any similarity between the name of our product and a certain tennis player is purely accidental.

Google translation: The chest which has become open can be enjoyed, Is just the person who obtained the commodity... It is instantaneous only the person who was inserted in the hand can enjoy.

Insert obligatory snark about Sharapova actually being a good tennis player AND hot.

She's a good tennis player, but doesn't come close to Kournikova on the hotness scale. I get pissed everytime I see an ad or promo that tries to insinuate how pretty she is, because I think she's average looking...and she has really thin hair. Yeah, I'm petty.

I don't think Anna Kournikova is pretty at all. Maria Sharapova at least has a pretty face, but 6' and only 130 lbs? Put some meat on them bones. Mario likes a badonkadonk.

Kournikova has a great body, but her face? She's not really that pretty at all imho. Of course, I don't think Sharapova is anything special either, but she's prettier than anna.

but 6' and only 130 lbs? Put some meat on them bones.

She's all muscle and plays matches that last hours. She's surely in better shape than anyone in this thread. We need to let go of this nonsense that putting meat on bones is 'healthy'.

I don't know justgary. All the bones without meat I've seen didn't seem all that healthy.

Personally, I'm waiting for the company to come out with the Lindsey Davenport pillow. My neck needs more cushion.

Of course I click post and realize I totally missed the obvious: Lindsey Davenport

I hate to unhijack the thread and bring it back to the original topic, but ...

The general consensus out there is that these are, in fact, inspired by Ms. Sharapova. (Prior link has some NSFW, but extremely funny, stuff on it before you get down to the topic at hand.)

One site even provides a bit of a translation which references tennis. (About half way down under the "Wednesday, June 22" heading. Some content on the page is NSFW.)
