There are lots of rumors or open secrets about Gravure idols and minor celebrities in Japan. One is that plastic surgery is rampant. Another is that sex with management is common — and a necessity to progress in the industry.
Another has been proved true by the recent experience of one of the most popular Gravure models working in Japan today, Yuu Tejima.
Yuu, known for her huge I-cup breasts, has admitted that she will turn — dramatic drum roll! — 30 next month. Previously she and her agency took two years off her real age so that she would seem younger in the early part of her career, since most Gravure models need to be in their teens or early twenties.
Yuu does other TV appearances now and so is presumably comfortable enough in her career that can spill the beans at last.
Don’t worry, Yuu, we reckon you still look fantastic!
Following in the dinky footsteps of their forefathers (or, fore-ladies), the wonderful girls of SKE48 are also now to get their own official venue.
Nagoya-based SKE (named after Sakae, an area in the city) have up to now being using the Sunshine Studio as their performing home, but from September it will revamped as a full theater, much like the famous AKB48 venue in Akihabara. This shows the growing success of the spin-off, probably the biggest AKB sister group. (There are several others, including in Fukuoka, Osaka and even Jakarta.)
It has a following of course in central Japan but also an increasing presence on a national level, recently appearing in advertising commercials.
Created in 2008, SKE48′s most famous members include: Rikako Hirata, Jurina Matsui (controversially, a mere 15!), Rena Matsui (picture below), Akane Takayanagi and Masana Oya.
Now comes their latest twist. To work for SOD you would have to be of a certain mindset, right? Actually, we’ve met some of the employees and we can vouch for how “normal” they are.
But clearly the porn is infective. Take the example of Aya Sakurai.
She was just an ordinary “office lady” (OL) working in the PR department for SOD. But she got so into the products she was helping sell that she ended up being scouted to appear in them herself!
Now she is the star of a whole mini JAV porn series built around the concept of this busty OL discovering her hidden potential.
SOD clearly is willing to support its staff’s ambitions, since they have worked with Aya to develop spin-off products as well, including nipple toys based on her lovely titties and the inevitable onahole masturbator cloned from her perfect pussy.
You can get your hands on an Aya Sakurai set featuring a porn DVD, her titties and her onahole from KanojoToys.
Slinky and sexy actress Ryoko Yonekura is known for being nubile and sexy… and unmarried.
The 36-year old former model has famously done semi-nude photo shoots for Anan and was recently appearing in the musical Chicago on Broadway.
Having recently broken up with her Japanese boyfriend, Ryoko is now said to be getting very “close” to her choreographer on the American hit show. During the long rehearsals she took in New York to prepare her for her challenging role she and Gary Chryst apparently became more than just colleagues.
Chryst is no doubt used to being close to women and their sexy bodies, given his job. He must have seen a fair bit of experience too — he’s meant to be in his sixties! Does Ryoko know what she’s getting into?!
Ryoko, come on back to Japan soon! We want you to be single and back where you belong!
Summer is racing by, don’t let the weekends go to waste!
Now is the time to hit Kamakura beach and the other stretches of sand around Tokyo, because there are guaranteed to be legions of hot girls.
Outside the vaunted world of idols and JAV porn, you won’t catch any nudity, unfortunately. But the girls will be wearing very skimpy wear, for sure, and there is aways a legion of slutty bronzed gyaru as well.
Actually, the lack of nudity on Japanese beach — in contrast to other parts of local culture, like communal bathing — means the men are fascinated by foreign beaches, which are packed with voluptuous naked girls.
Meanwhile, take a gander at what you can experience at a Japanese beach in the summer…
We’re going a little nostalgic with our idol-gazing this week. It’s time to feast your eyes on the voluptuous delights of Chieko Shiratori (白鳥 智恵子).
Born in 1975, Chieko was a minor star in the Nineties before she retired for domestic happiness with her husband and child in 2000.
If she still looks anything like these pictures, then you can bet your horses that that’s a very happy home indeed!
Hashimoto (below, left) has since admitted his guilt in the latest scandal in his career, which has seen him attack tattooed city workers, teachers, puppet theatre and anyone he didn’t agree with in his notorious unapologetically brusque style.
“Well, first I’ve got to explain to my wife. There’s a massive ‘penalty’ waiting for me at home,” he joked at a press conference.
As we’ve seen before, adultery is no biggie in Japan, especially if you are man. The tabloids take some delight in the juicy details but there is basically no moral sermonizing.
Hashimoto, for example, has lots of children and famously has said how much he loves his wife and family. But rather the pleasure is in recounting how Hashimoto got to know the lady in question at a high-class Osaka hostess club. On their fourth date they went to a love hotel and apparently even tried out kinky cosplay.
Hashimoto always has a reputation for being a bit naughty and doing things differently, so we doubt this latest scandal will impact on his career much.
AKB48 handshaking events, when fans can “meet” their idols, have come into attention again.
Team B’s Rie Kitahara (21) — and probably only one of the only two genuinely hot AKB48 members — has fallen under the obsessive attention of one male fan, who wrote on an anonymous message board:
We argued about her hair [at a handshaking event]. It’s bad of me but I think of Rie-chan totally as my think. It pains me that other people are appraising her.
Each handshaking booth has its own bodyguard to make sure the fans don’t get too personal. This is a real concern.
This month at a concert, a member of another otaku idol group, Momoiro Clover Z, had her breasts fondled by a zealous fan. (Although some groups are doing a lot to encourage this kind of intimate fan-idol interaction!)
At concerts for Momoiro Clover Z now, audiences have to follow instructions on screens about when to sit down or stand up so that the organizers can control the horny crowds. This is apparently particularly the case when the idols get close to the audience seats. Just one surge of mass otaku energy and they would never be seen again!
Some handshaking events attract 80,000 fans, with each member shaking hands with thousands. While their few seconds with their girl will likely stay in an otaku’s memory forever, we certainly can’t vouch for the same being the case for the girls.
The AKB48 handshaking events have become notorious for fans to impose themselves upon their meek idols. Stories abound of them saying dirty things to the girls, jerking off right before and leaving the cum for her to touch — and more!
Still, if you market yourselves so ruthlessly and cynically as a sexualized group to such an alienated group of fans, then you can’t then bite the hand that feeds you… or shakes yours.
Good news, guys. Those zero-cup flat-chested girls will be off the market, leaving only ladies with more ample chests.
As we’ve said before, Japanese girls are notoriously small in the bust area. But if you’ve ever wanted your suspicions answered that Japanese guys all have Lolita Complex and want as young-looking a woman as possible, this might be the closest to proof there is.
A survey has found that a surprising majority of the nation’s men no only do not mind about small breasts but they even WANT their woman to have an A-cup!
I know, bizarre, huh? The June survey of 1,619 men around the land revealed that men basically either want their girls to ideally have almost no breasts or a reasonable C-cup bust.
A couple of places stood out by their preference for larger chests. Saitama and Hyogo both voted for D-cups, gigantic by the standards of most of the country.
The same people did the survey earlier this year that found out the average bust sizes per prefecture and favorite colored sexy underwear.
While I can’t say I like huge breasts beyond a curiosity factor, a girl with an A-cup or B-cup is just disappointing. She can have the face of an angel but then a chopping board chest. You feel like you are having sex with a young boy. Oh, but maybe that’s what the other guys like…
It was only recently that Japanese para-athlete springer was dropping her running clothes to raise money for her travel costs to the London Paralympics.
Now firefighters in Okinawa are following suit — by taking off their suit!
Yes, if you’re a fan of hunky, muscular Japanese men, especially the bronzed Okinawan kind, then get your hands on this sweltering set of images, perfect for the summer.
Local firefighters are showing off their prowess in a series of postcards being sold for charity. Following on from the calendar sold last year, the postcards are raising money for a costly helicopter. (Okinawa is the poorest prefecture in Japan — but boasts some of the sexiest people!)
Currently the guys are borrowing a chopper but unless they can get some cash by August, they will have to return it! Good luck, lads!
And if you’re ever in Tokyo, you know how to reach me, right?!
