Virgin-Killing Sweater
There is a new kind of sweater making its way across Japanese Twitter. The 童貞殺すセーター(doutei wo korosu sētā) or “Virgin-Killing Sweater”, is a sweater that leaves a woman’s back almost completely exposed supposedly making male virgins so “excited” they could die. Of course as this term spread, it carried over into the anime world and artwork is being drawn of various characters wearing these new “Virgin-Killing sweaters”. Below are a few examples:

What do you all think of this new trend? Would these clothes really be “Virgin-Killing”?

    The sweater is pretty ugly to be honest. I guess they had some extra material to sell off and needed a smart marketing campaign.

  • MusouTensei

    Me gusta.

    the sideboob might kill someone but the actual sweater itself is pretty meh

  • ProfessorFluffy

    I think it would be more successful if women wore it backwards.

    Yeah, I’ve seen the trend in my twitter page, to each their own, I guess, but I don’t think that will help with the high amount of virgins that japan has.

  • Paychi

    I don’t get it. If women over there are so desperate to have sex and it’s so “easy” for a guy to get some then why is there a virgin problem? If it’s anything like over here, women just keep raising standards and it’s getting increasingly difficult to be an “acceptable” man. And then these same women who have absurd standards turn around and blame the men for not meeting said standard. Who knows, different cultures and different atmospheres. But I do know that any Japanese woman that wants some can come over here and cure my yellow fever for me. So unfortunate.

      From how I understand it, it is the same problem. Rather than trying to meet the high standards women in Japan have, many men just decided to be single. They focus more on working and have cats and waifu for companionship instead.

      However, like you said, some women would rather blame the men than self reflect. That’s likely why this outfit is being advertised as a virgin-killing sweater. To me the nickname gives the image that the advertisers are saying “Hey women, your not getting any guys because they’re a bunch of loser virgins! Buy our product to fix that!” The high maintenance women who buy this outfit are likely not going to have any better luck.

      The ironic part is that many Japanese men do love this outfit… That’s why there are so many waifu drawn wearing it. ;D

    • Paychi

      Yeah. Exactly. And Nero lookin fiiiine in that.

  • Lazeegai

    ? Why is this important?

  • Miqubi

    I am unfollowing everyone that keeps retweeting this stuff lol, I’m a degenerate and it was nice for a while, but now it’s just spam.

  • wearing nothing under must be itchy D:
