This DVD turns shy boys into Romeos (or not)

Japan thinks that a video of a couple of women are looking you in the eye for 96 minutes will make you more confident. That’s the content of a DVD [JP] which has been released by Japanese entertainment powerhouse Avex a couple of days ago. The girl in the video is just one of 50 women of different ages and nationalities.

So what is this about?

The DVD is aimed at curing shyness, especially in Japanese men who are too afraid to talk to women. By looking at the girls on video, viewers are supposedly able to reduce the level of nervousness the next time they encounter females in real life.

The DVD is entitled Miteru dake which translates to “Just looking” and costs $25. Before you ask: A Blu-ray version has not been announced yet.
