Transcript ::^ss»*«*s#*####S«s* Japanese women are apparently as elated and pleased by The Hite Report as many American women. Only two weeks after a quiet publication June 10, The Hite Report jumped onto the Japanese bestseller list where it has remained. Shere Hite was invited by the publisher to visit Japan during the first week of July, where she was enthusiastically greeted by women's groups, and was interviewed by many women's magazines and other news media, including the highly regarded Asahi Shimbun. The reaction of every single women's magazine—from those catering to the conservative housewife to working woman to radical feminist—has been positive, echoing many U.S. women's sentiments: "It's about time!" The feeling was that women had known these things in private all along, but it was a relief to see them in print and know other women felt the same. Many Japanese women registered surprise that American women would need to fake orgasms, too; they had had the impression that American women would feel totally "free" and "liberated" to do anything they wanted—that they would never feel shy or inhibited. It was reassuring to Japanese women to find that many of these oroblems are shared. The Japanese word for "masturbation" applies only to men—i.e., it translates literally "1,000 strokes." Therefore, many Japanese women, as children, did not feel ashamed of masturbating; they did not know that was what they were doing! The original Japanese character for "orgasm" meant literally "ejaculation." In other words, there was no word for female orgasm. Japanese women now have a lot to say about these "oversights." And in a country where even handshaking is not customary, many women also wanted more time enjoying physical affection and touching, without strict "1, 2, 3 intercourse"—which, incidentally, ends with male orgasm in Japan, too. {The Hite Report will be published this fall in eight countries in Western Europe, plus Israel. It was published in Spain in July— almost as interesting as the Japanese publication, since books of this nature have not previously been seen in Spain. The Spanish publisher, Plaza y Janes, has printed a large number of copies, and plans an extensive advertising campaign. Our Bodies, Our Selves is also being published there for the first time this month.)

Even for the vast majority of us who take our financial obligations seriously, balancing a budget isn't easy. Just when you think you've found the answer, inflation takes another bite out of your paycheck. And everything starts costing more. Putting the kids through school. Food. Clothes. A better home. Or even new appliances. Sometimes it makes you wonder if you ever can get ahead. No matter how hard you try. Take an opportunity, not a chance. Fortunately, there is someone you can turn to for help. Your Credit Union. Our business is helping people get more out of their money. We can help you save. Help you borrow. And, if you like, we can even show you how to avoid future money problems by suggesting practical strategies that really work. We play it straight. Tbo many organizations try to use personal financial counseling as a way to sell other services. A consolidation loan. A fee. A gimmicky savings account. Your credit union doesn't operate that way.
