Turning Japanese

Continuing with the masturbation theme, can you believe back in the 1980’s a racist euphemism for jerking off was totally acceptable subject matter for a radio friendly new wave hit? The VaporsDavid Fenton swears it’s not about masturbation, but the lyrics don’t mention jack shit about anything remotely Japanese. Rather, the dude sings in lovingly perverse detail about his lover’s picture and how he wants the doctor to take one so he can “look at you from inside as well.” There’s videos on the internet like that, and they ain’t on medical sites.
