Most "100 sexiest" lists are made in the US (at least the most famous ones), and the US doesn't have a lot of gorgeous Asian women in their local media. And obviously they are too lazy to look outside their borders to look for more sexy women to put on their list. I'm sure there would be a lot of sexy women not just in Japan, but also in other parts of the world (the rest of Asia, Europe, Africa) that could easily knock off some ladies that are now considered sexy in the US. But it doesn't really work like that :/ With a ranking it's always about 1) where the ranking is made, 2) who makes the ranking, and 3) what is considered sexy in the culture where the ranking is made..

...lol essay answer XD sorry

But GOOD QUESTION!! If these rankings were really about 100 sexiest women in the WORLD, they should definitely include a good deal of Japanese women...

^ You forgot point no.4

How much publicity they've made for themselves in the media in the past year (e.g. Cheryl Cole)

I always figured, what with the internet and all, that finding hotties from the Eastern side of the world wouldn't be that hard. Hell they should just come here to find out! XD

Perhaps I'm a little bit biased towards them, but I think I can objectively say that the likes of Ayaka, Rika, Takitty, Yui Okada - they'd all easily get into these lists.

I agree with Tuffty and shirenu.

Another thing is the magazine's audience. Every magazine caters to a particular crowd since it's harder to please everyone and the list each mag makes is going to reflect that. A magazine like Smooth features thick, curvy women, mostly black and latina. The list they make is mostly going to feature women who fit that description because that's what their audience wants. Miranda Kerr may place on Maxim's list, but she'll never place on a Smooth one. She is far from what the readers of Smooth find attractive. Same goes for any other lists. A magazine like Maxim features mostly actresses, singers, and fashion models while leaving out a lot of glamour and fetish models, porn performers, etc.

(I had already typed it, but I guess is like shi's point about the culture attached to the list)

I think these lists are more just for fun than actual awards. It's just another reason to feature hot women.XD

Also, finding every woman in the would be tough as hell. There are tons of women who are beatuiful, but just aren't well known outside of their circle. Everytime I look for some scans or pics, I find more women. Often times with foreign ones it's tough to search for them, especially if they use alphabet that you don't know. I have to come here to get the Japanese name when I search for a Japanese model to get better results. Knowing where to look is tough too. I don't know how much time other guys invest in searching for women on the internet, but that shit's gotta take a lot of time. I do it more on the side and I find myself having to stop because I've been wasting too much time looking at women on the internet. I mostly search for European, South and North American women, then come here for whatever else. I don't want to think about how much time I would need to search for women all over the world.

There will never be a real "100 Sexiest Women of the World" list just 'cause it would be too difficult to find everyone, there would be too many disagreements with people's opinions, and having that many women only makes the list harder.

In our rankings here, the first year let every women be included. (I wanted to try to make a list that really did include women from all over the world) The result was a shitload of women only having one (sometimes two) voters and only a few women where a couple of people voted for her. It makes a big gap. We only had like 30 people who voted, so that fucked it up too. Then Masa or daigong said to split the list into smaller versions to fix that problem and the lists came out a little better. Still kinda wack since not that many voted.

Very interesting topic. I asked this question myself in the past and came to a similar conclusion. The top 100 sexiest women in the world list from FHM for instance only includes women who are popular in the western culture.

How much publicity they've made for themselves in the media in the past year (e.g. Cheryl Cole)

Plus, as Tuffty says, publicity is a very important aspect. A sexy women won't be on that list unless she's very famous. The more popular she is the better chances she has to be on the top of the list... I also remember girls when I first saw them I wasn't very interested in them. But after a while, when you look at more and more pictures, when you see the girl more often on TV for instance, you really start to like her and admire her beauty. That's for example what happened with Mikie Hara. First I found she was so-so but then she ended up on the top of my personal top ten most sexy women list!

I don't know how much time other guys invest in searching for women on the internet, but that shit's gotta take a lot of time. I do it more on the side and I find myself having to stop because I've been wasting too much time looking at women on the internet.

I've already spent hours and hours searching for women on the internet and once you start searching is hard to stop! I mostly search for Asian women though. In my opinion the best pictures (in terms of quality) are from Japan. I think that photobooks and online photosets (if that's how they call it, I'm not sure) ARE THE GREATEST INVENTIONS SINCE THE BIKINI!! It's something that I really miss in western culture!

By the way, isn't there a top 100 most popular/sexy women list in Japan? With only Japanese women? There are so many magazines in Japan, such lists must exist. I once found (can't remember where) a list of the top 10 most popular Jav Actresses... It was pretty interesting...

^I remember some list of Top 100 Japanese celebrities back in '06, but I don't know if anyone's posted any after that.

There are a lot of photobooks released here, but more of them are focused on the photographer, not the model. Bianca Beauchamp and Dita von Teese are the only models I can think of with a books focused on only them, though I'm sure there are more. Most of the books I've seen are the photographer doing a series of different models on a central theme, like Ed Fox's Glamour from the Ground Up (Link NSFW) or Tammy Sanborn's Hot Luxury Girls: The Best of Sugar Posh Beauties.

There's no shortage of online sets either. On the glamour side, magazines like Maxim, Nuts, Loaded, Zoo, and other men's mags offer similar pics to ones in their magazines, though these are usually low quality. But others like Playboy (They also have at least 6 other sites with different themes), Show, and Page3.com have exclusive online content as well as high quality stuff from their publications. More towards the artful side are sites like Femjoy, Body In Mind, Met-Art, etc that have tastefully done nude photography.

I don't know about models in Japan, but most here have their own sites where they offer sets and videos. Photographers have their own sites as well. I don't always like the retro-inspired stuff, but I like a lot of the stuffViva Van Story does.

A site I have to mention is Only Tease. They are a little more towards glamour, but without a lot of over-the-top glam make up and lighting. Most of the girls are lesser known UK models (I think some may not even really be models) but there are a few well-known UK and even North American models. The sets feature more casual outfits in matching settings. There is no full-frontal nudity, but some models do go topless, some don't. They have some other niche sites as well.

Wow! I didn't know about all those things! You are quite an expert!
I had a quick look at those links and there's a lot of interesting stuff. I have to come back when I've got more time...

There are a lot of photobooks released here, but more of them are focused on the photographer, not the model.

Yeah that's the problem! They're about the photographer's work, not so much about the models! In addiction those books are usually very expensive plus the photographs tend to be heavily edited and too artistic (for my taste). Japanese photobooks on the other hand are much more natural (not all, but most of them), that's what I love about them. It's like you went to the beach with your cute Japanese girlfriend and took some pictures of her...

I think most Japanese idols have blogs and singers have their own sites. Then you have sites of online photosets publishers like Young Sunday Visual Web , graphis, Tatsuo Watanabe Online (which actually is a photographer's site but he releases photosets) and many, many more. Since I don't speak Japanese fluently I almost never visit those sites and sadly I never figured out how to buy photosets there...
