With the information she drew it out through her own manga-like style, where words turned into bold illustrations of "kawaii" girls feeling the pleasure from the natural act of masturbation;
;She has been thanked multiple times by interviewees for providing them a safe space to talk about 'sex' itself, since for a very long time they have avoid it to prevent the feeling of shame and guilt, though deep inside they knew very well that sex is just a part of life.
