They certainly can’t enjoy it, right? I mean, they’re exposing themselves in swimsuits to the whole world for crying out loud! I’m sure they realize people will use those pictures for fapping. Does no one think of how their parents must feel?
Not that I won’t still fap to them myself though.

Of course they dislike it. It still has the stigma of being “dirty work.”

Of course the shorter girls with not particularly good figures and otherwise very average bodies dislike doing it.

I think it was Kikkawa or someone saying on Young Town that she doesn’t like doing swimsuit work, and Michishige said she doesn’t, either.

On the contrary, I think they should have everyone put out at least one photobook while they’re still under 18.

If you have confidence in your singing, you become a singer.
If you want to charm people with your dancing, you become a dancer.
If you like acting, you become an actress.
If you want to do something creative, you become an artist, or a director, or something else along those lines.
If you want people to constantly have their eyes on you, you become an idol.
You want people to concentrate on you. You want them to become infatuated with you. You want it so badly, you become an idol. Some idols want to hide that trait about themselves, others don’t. That’s all.

Not every wota, though. I look and appreciate their photobooks as pieces of art and I feel nothing sexual towards them. I just feel refreshed when I look at something pretty or cute. When it’s time to fap, I use hardcore porn.

If it was all left up to the members, they wouldn’t want to wear any swimsuits, they wouldn’t want to do handshakes, they’d all dye their hair brown, get piercings, get their nails done in all sorts of crazy colors… That’s why you need the old guys as their higher-ups to set the ground rules.

It’s just basic human instinct to feel aroused seeing the gender you’re attracted to wearing little to no clothes. Same thing when it’s all hidden and you still react that way by reflex.

Swimsuits = fap material for disgusting wota.
I’m sure the idols know this. All they can do is accept it as being part of the job description.

Well, revealing your skin like that is thought of as a dirty job for girls who just wouldn’t get noticed otherwise. Of course they’d rather not do it if they had the choice. It makes them look cheap.

Even an ex-AKB voice actress said: “I really don’t understand why we must wear swimsuits… no matter how much I think about it. Sure, I’d gladly wear one if we’re doing a photoshoot at the beach or at a pool, but for what reason do I have to wear one at an indoors studio…? Hmm…“

And then at the photobook release events the interviewer will ask them to show their favorite shots from the book, and they have to specifically open it up and show that page to everyone. That alone must be quite embarrassing, even if it was just an innocent shot.

Wearing a swimsuit while doing rope jumping ← I get this.
Wearing a swimsuit while playing tennis ← I get this.

Wearing a swimsuit while washing your body with soap ← Huh?

I wish they continue to leave all the excessively lewd swimsuit work to AKB. I’d be fine with H!P throwing us just the occasional bit of fan service every now and then.

I’m a girl, but I’m always watching idols in swimsuits! It makes for good dieting inspiration. I’m sure some girls don’t like it, but I really think a majority of the members don’t mind doing it.
Henkka: I almost translated “dieting inspiration” as “thinspiration.” Then I punched myself in the face as punishment.
