The word ‘bukkake’ has several meanings. Not many western people know, that it has a general meaning. They think of the word mainly in terms of a very specific sexual orientation. And that can lead to confusion.
Bukkake in Japanese
The word ‘bukkake’ means something like ‘splashing’. Japanese use that word primarily as a description of pouring hot broth over cold noodles.
The meaning of the word, more familiar in the West, refers to the sexual act of giving someone a large number of loads of semen all over the face or other parts of the body. Something very different from hot broth indeed.
Unlike here, in Japan no one would look up or giggle if you ordered a bowl of ‘Bukkake Udon’. The general meaning is much more common in Japan than the other.
Outside Japan, the term ‘bukkake’ in this sense is known only to a limited number of ‘foodies’. For the majority of us Westerners, though, it is one of the most frequently used search terms on porn sites.
A few years after the Japanese noodles restaurant chain Marugame opened its doors in America, it recently changed the name of this noodles dish. Recently, Bukkake Udon has been listed as “B.K.” on the menu.
The chain probably did this to avoid confusion in puritanical America. The acronym BK obviously stands for bukkake, but it is an otherwise unusual abbreviation. Should you ever find yourself in Japan and want to order a plate of “BK,” no one will understand what you mean.
A Japanese tourist in California noticed it recently.
アメリカの丸亀製麺のメニューを確認していて気付いたのだが、「Bukkake」は日本以上にアメリカでアレな単語のためB.K.という隠語めいた名前に置き換えられていた。https://t.co/xwidVqODmJ pic.twitter.com/30654oUqL3— inuro (@inuro) June 2, 2021
This translates into:
When I looked at the menu of Marugame Seimen in the United States, I noticed that “Bukkake” was replaced with the hidden name B.K. because it is a word that is more American than Japanese.
When the restaurant decided on the name change is not known. However, we do know for sure that it must have happened sometime in 2020-2021, because before that it was still on the menu as ‘Bukkake Udon’,
