Of course, bukkake udon has existed lengthy earlier than the porn connotations (even the English language dictionary definition is NSFW!).

Similarly, there’s additionally English language meals slang for intercourse, and folks can eat and order these with out performing like creeps.

However, within the English-speaking world, as a result of there isn’t the identical context and authentic which means for the phrase, and for the reason that phrase turned identified by pornography, seeing “bukkake udon” on a menu would have a a lot narrower affiliation.

Which is brief for bukkake.

Until not too long ago, although, it was apparently known as “bukkake udon” at American areas (here and here, for instance). As famous on Togetter, Japanese Twitter customers famous that for the reason that phrase bukkake had solely porn connotations overseas, this type of change was most likely inevitable.

Bukkake udon is scrumptious, and I’m glad Marugame didn’t ditch the dish.
