bukkake ぶっかけ

NSFW: this article may contain words or images you'd rather not have your boss see.
In Japanese, bukkake ぶっかけ means "splashing" or "pouring" something onto something, specially with force. For example: throwing water from a bucket at someone.

In English, the term bukkake basically always refers to pornography (including hentai) featuring copious amounts of semen being poured onto someone, to the point they become covered in semen.

Meaning

Due to the way the word is used in English it's easy to think that bukkake is a nasty word, but it isn't. The word itself has nothing to do with sex.

Notably, a bukkake udon ぶっかけうどん is a dish made by "pouring" broth onto udon noodles. The broth doesn't contain semen. If it does, there's something very wrong going on in the kitchen.

Morphologically, bukkake comes from the word:
  • bukkakeru
    ぶっかける
    To splash [something] onto [someone] with force.

Which is a compound verb:
  1. kakeru
    かける
    To cover [someone] with [something]. (among other meanings.)
  2. bu'
    ぶっ
    (prefix used to emphasize force.)
    • bukkorosu
      ぶっ殺す
      To kill. (with force.)
    • buttobasu
      ぶっ飛ばす
      To send flying. (with force.)

Therefore, bukkakeru literally means "to cover with force," and "pouring" or "splashing" is how you cover something with liquid.

Since kakeru, and by extension bukkakeru, are ichidan verbs, the ren'youkei 連用形 is conjugated simply by removing the ~ru ending:
  • kake
    かけ
    The act of covering [something] with [something]. (noun form.)
  • bukkake
    ぶっかけ
    The act of covering [something] with [something] with force. (noun form.)

The word bukkake isn't the only noun form of a verb that's known as an pornographic genre in English. Some other examples include:
  • shibari
    縛り
    Tying.
    [Rope bondage]. (in English.)
    • shibaru
      縛る
      To tie. (with rope.)
      To restrain.
  • netorare
    寝取られ
    Either "being adulterous" or "having a partner who is adulterous" depending on context.
    [Cuckolding]. (In English.)
    • From netorareru 寝取られる, passive form of netoru 寝取る, "to sleep with someone else's partner."

Kanji

The word bukkake ぶっかけ is normally spelled with hiragana, spelled with kanji it would be:
  • bukakke
    ぶっ掛け
    (because kakeru 掛ける is also spelled like this.)
