Unless you're a total prude, your mind will automatically go to the obvious! But, I don't need to speak Japanese in order to see that thisis a facial muscle exerciser.
This device is a 'Face Slimmer' (フェイススリマー). You are supposed to wear it and repeat the basic hiragana vowels 'a i u e o' (あいうえお) for 3 minutes a day (一日たった三分).
I've been studying Japanese at a nice little school for a little over a year. This device is a 'Face Slimmer' (フェイススリマー).. 'あいうえお' (aiueo) is the basic sound of the hiragana alphabet, kind of like their analogue to our 'ABCDEFG...'. You are supposed to wear it and repeat aiueo for 3 minutes a day.
It's a beauty session. It's selling this mouth-like thing, which you put into your mouth, like the ladies in the ad, and it helps stretches and strengthen your face muscle. I see so many of these Japanese inventions that I find it really normal (although I don't read Japanese, but Chinese). And I didn't realise that westerns may find them weird. LOL

My guess (after the naughty ones) was a device to help learn to yodel. It's apparently big in Tokyo. google Takeo Ischi
If that thing is for what it looks like it's for as opposed to what they say it's for...gotta ask, wouldn't men run screaming if that came at them? LOL

So many comments running through my mind and none of them are appropriate, but the facial muscle thing people keep mentioning is accurate. The culture is obsessed with looking young and youthful.
See my mind didn't go straight there... I wondered if it improved singing but was puzzling over how you'd sing with that thing in your mouth, THEN I read the comments and blushed thankful I didn't write something über dumb.
see now apart from a fellatio assistance device, i would have gone with a singing training aid, but to me it seems a little Irish to stretch something in order to make it tighter. It is, in fact, for exercising the facial muscles in order to reduce the signs of aging and increase muscle tone. At least I know why I have such a young looking face!
Lol, that looks dirty. But oddly enough its supposedly like a mini-face lift contraption. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/features/4173842/Wacky-gadgets-claim-to-help-women-shun-cosmetic-surgery.html
Apparently, it's a "mouth stretcher" to get rid of wrinkles. Check out this article for other, similarly bizarre Japanese products . . .
That looks very R rated rofl that's the only thing that comes to mind when looking at that, uh, product.
You gotta love the feigned look of surprise on the model... As if, OMG! I totally cannot remember how I got this inside my mouth!
Lori is correct. The advert says to put it in your mouth and sing the alphabet to tighten your face up. Product name is "face slimmer"
hahahaha... I've seen that. it's supposed to tighten the skin around your mouth so you don't get wrinkles/jowls. :)
*mind in the gutter* I would guess it is actually a jaw toning exercise thingy. But I'm sure it could have other dirtier uses.
Weeellll....I could go XXX here, or the PG version, which would be something to help you sing better??? LOL
@amlykken my first thought was that it was to help you sing better. To get more volume or to be able to enunciate words better.
.@danoah Toning exercises for your face?! Seems to be like 1 of those balls u can squeeze in your hand, only gross.. :) http://t.co/WClW6HeB
It's a face-slimming device? Wow . . . 'cause that's *not* what I thought of when I first saw it. XD
I do read a little Japanese, actually, and the woman in the corner seems to be sounding out vowels, which I suppose would be the "shower massager" advertising function, but not the actual purpose. It could be used for enunciation exercises.
Yeah, there's an american product, been around for years, that uses stretcher bars. Your mouth makes the same shape as you "work out." http://www.facialflex.com/before-and-after.php?id=5
I just can't help but look at it and laugh, and pity the woman who did the ad. Wonder how much she got paid for that one....
