Aki Takajo is the latest former AKB48 idol to strip off. The 25-year-old, who also appeared with spin-off groups JKT48 and French Kiss, has made her debut as a gravure idol in an alluring semi-nude shoot. She left the AKB empire in 2016. These ravishing photos are a taster of an upcoming photo book release in October. AKB and its various sister groups not only mean there is a small army of music idols competing to make a name for themselves, but also an increasingly large army of ex-idols, who have fallen by the wayside and now have no public life other than a ...

It's no secret how wildly popular the gravure model Miyako Akane is, so much so that she seems to be inspiring her own mini fetish sub-genres. She has a big following, not least because she rewards her fans with such things as making her porn debut (under the name Ema Yumekawa), wearing insanely sexy swimwear, and sparking a new street fashion trend for extreme body painting. In the past she has also posed nude and in a zentai body suit. But what if your obsession with the angelic-faced, big-chested model was more than just her body? What if you wanted her to be, well, missing ...

Now that's what we call a retirement. When Rin Sakuragi announced she was leaving her career in adult video at the age of 28, she (and her managers) decided to do so with a bang. In the time since we've seen not one but three sex toys dedicated to the goddess. Fans can sample the Rin Sakuragi AV Retirement Special Clone Onahole, a regular masturbator toy from Nippori Gift based on AV idol's pussy. Then there's the Geki-fera Vacuum Rin Sakuragi Blowjob Onahole, an awesome entry in the bestselling series of oral sex masturbator toys. And if that's still not enough, ...

Japanese gravure idols are mostly famous for one thing: their busts. Sure, not all of them have giant breasts but the proportion of busty models is pretty high. There are all kinds of things you can do with such breasts, from groping them to raise money for charity to keeping various objects balanced on them. If you want a way to accurately check and compare gravure idols' various chest sizes, we recommend the Oppai Zukan, or Full-Sized Gravure Idol Breasts Reference Book. This hefty book features such gravure idols as Nanoka, Eimi Matsushima, Saki Funaoka, Nonoko, Sayaka Onuki, ...

Kazuhito Kosaka, aka Daimaou Kosaka, aka Piko Taro, the comedian best known for his viral hit "Pen Pineapple Apple Pen", has married his secret long-time girlfriend. And the lucky lady is none other than... gravure idol Hitomi Yasueda! This is not a joke. The busty model (and former race queen) with a delightful butt has been dating Kosaka for four years, after they appeared together on a TV show in May 2013 and long before he hit the big time as his Piko Taro character. They got married on August 3rd. To be honest, when we read this news we assumed it was a very mistimed ...

So you've seen the mega hit anime Your Name.. Perhaps you've also seen it again in its recently released DVD form. Maybe you've even tried out the parody onahole toy. But have you seen the Your Name. parody adult video? Released in late June, Kimi no nawa. is the latest example of Japanese AV's penchant for parody. Previous eyebrow-raising examples of parody porn include Ultraman, wailing politician Ryutaro Nonomura, and comedienne It starts with the name. The 129-minute porn directed by Any Nakamura for Real Works cleverly uses a different kanji character for the "nawa" -- here ...

It's an open secret that Arashi idol group Jun Matsumoto is dating actress Mao Inoue, though their respective agencies prevent them from getting married. But that's not all. Matsumoto is also alleged to have had an affair for several years with someone else -- none other than porn star Tsukasa Aoi. The scandal was exposed by a tabloid at the end of last year after Aoi was spotted entering and leaving Matsumoto's apartment building. Matsumoto apparently treated Aoi as his "sex slave". Inoue also stopped working for a while, possibly related to the scandal. But Arashi is a ...

We love gravure and AV idols, but not just the ones currently in fashion. We also like learning about the thousands of women working in gravure and AV do after their careers are over. Some go into prostitution or working as a hostess. Some become mainstream TV presenters or actors -- or even politicians. If they're lucky, some snag the right man and settle down to a quiet life of marriage and family. Some, though, fade into obscurity and poverty. The actress Hikari Mitsushima is an acclaimed and popular talent today but started her career as an teen idol. The porn star Nayuka Mine is ...

There are more than a few bars and hostess clubs where you can have your drinks poured for you by AV actresses. There is also a new bar in Kabukicho by Weekly Playboy, where patrons are served by famous gravure idols. But until now there hasn't been a bar directly operated by an AV production company. In March, that all changed when a well-known AV maker opened a small girls' bar in Kabukicho. For the uninitiated, a girls' bar is a kind of cheap hostess club, where there is a modest cover charge and the drinks are a bit more expensive than usual. Nikkan Spa recently paid a visit to ...

Earlier in the year we wrote about the upcoming porn debut of NMB48 idol Risako Okada. The 21-year-old did a full-frontal photo shoot to celebrate her AV release on the Muteki label under a new performer name, Miko Matsuda. Okada/Matsuda (aka Risapoyo) was a member of the Osaka-based AKB48 sister group from 2011 to 2012. She now joins a growing list of former AKB idols who have "graduated" on to porn careers. Now the first pictures have appeared from here adult video, "Number 01". While the set-up of the AV seems very straightforward indeed and hardly seems to have much of a budget ...

Shocking. Fluorescent. Gaudy. Loud. Vular. Neon. Flashy. Tacky. There's a lot of epithets that can be applied to this new cosplay style that is like body art on psychedelic drugs, though none of them quite capture it. Inspired by strange characters from anime, cinema and video games, behold the new Japanese subculture of ishoku-hada. Certain sections of the Interweb are currently abuzz with breathless talk of this bizarre body painting and cosplay niche, which literally means "unique skin" or "unusual skin". Like an "alien" version of gyaru, ganguro or yamanba trends, women dress ...

Another week, another idol photo book or major weekly magazine photo shoot. What's special this time? It's not the latest release from the ranks of AKB48 or Nogizaka46 trying to break out (though Mai Shiraishi did that very well recently with her bestselling photo book), nor the latest has-been model or actress stripping off fully nude in a last-ditch attempt to relaunch a dying career. Nor is it attracting controversy for its content per se like the Tomomi Kasai photo book where she was pictured naked with a young boy (Kodansha eventually canceled the release). Nothing like as a crazy ...

What do AV actresses do on their days off? This is a question we often ponder. How many of the hot ladies wandering around Shinjuku and Shibuya are actually minor porn stars doing some shopping? We've searched the archives a bit and found this revealing gem, which offers a tantalizing hint about what some of the more adventurous ladies get up to. In April 2015, porn performer Sara Shinomiya spent her day off having her lovely body coated in cream and other sweet things -- all for her friends to slowly lick off. They also used some sort of sweet topping to write insults on her legs in ...

What is it about female Japanese sports athletes? They just keep turning us on. Former Olympic snowboarder Mero Imai recently cemented her post-sport spiral with a porn debut. Reika Saiki has shown that muscles are sexy, while Ami Inamura has demonstrated that a girl who knows what to do with a baseball bat is hot as hell. And lots of mainstream models are keen to display their svelte, sporty bodies. There's also a subgenre of athletes who have gone fully nude, such as the ice skater Fumie Suguri and dancer Tamiyo Kusakari. Similarly to former Olympic gymnast Risa Izumi and ...

One of the things we love about Japanese pornography is its use of parody and pastiche -- and the parody is often very topic. This is something of a ongoing trait in Japanese adult toys in general, too, as the parody masturbators and lubes of anime, mascots, celebrities and products show. Recently we even wrote about an onahole inspired by Kumamoto Prefecture. Examples with AV include an awesome porn based on Ultraman and one on the "wailing" Japanese politician Ryutaro Nonomura. "Career Woman Male Fishing" may well star Nao Mizuki, but she's clearly been made to look like female ...

If this is what the ongoing cleaning-up of Shinjuku's notorious red-light district means, then bring it on. The AV and gravure idols magazine Weekly Playboy is opening a bar in Kabukicho from June 10th. Every night, different gravure models will be serving drinks at Shupure Sakaba (Weekly Playboy Bar) to a few very lucky customers. This is an exclusive VIP bar with just five seats per session and a limit of only three seatings per night. Needless to say, reservations are a must and there is a hefty cover charge of ¥10,000 for one hour and a four-course meal (drinks and food not in ...

Here it is, folks. The moment we've been waiting for these past weeks. OK, perhaps you guys weren't as excited but this is the world we inhabit. Former gravure and nude mode Miu Nakamura's AV debut is out and the first preview images are available. The slinky seductress with a tight body and flat chest to die for is here in all her fully glory. We've seen it before, thanks to her frequent hair nude full-frontal photo shoots. But this is the next step up. It doesn't get any more graphic than this. "Fade In" is released on the Muteki label, which specializes in idols and celebrities ...

After Momona Kito (Yua Mikami) and Rina Nakanishi, Risa Naruse, Eri Takamatsu, and Rumi Yonezawa, now comes another AKB-linked music idol's porn debut. 21-year-old Risako Okada, a former member of NMB48 (the Osaka sister group of AKB48), is set to release her first porn on the Muteki label, which specializes in performers switching from mainstream entertainment to AV. She has launched her new career with a hair nude full-frontal photo shoot, which would be noteworthy in and of itself, though it also whets our appetites for the AV release coming from Muteki ...

We first encountered the gyaru ero-cosplayer and model non (also known as Nonsummerjack) when we visited Fetish Fes 2015. Frankly she was so hot (and scantily clad) that we basically creamed in our pants. She was lying on a bed, charging a few coins for the chance to take a few photos. Since then we have occasionally followed her latest shoots and so on. All for purely professional reasons, of course! We are late with this -- it was an entry in our ever-growing backlog of future blog posts -- but back in April she did something pretty cool with the lower half of her body. Wait, stop ...

Here's a nice tip from a very cute girl, which could well come in handy when you are with your next prize. G-cup idol Erina Kamiya from the group Kamen Joshi (Masked Girls) has unveiled a stunning technique: how to strip off a t-shirt in a flash. This is quite impressive, given that her massive chest could be reasonably expected to provide quite on obstruction to slipping off clothes. She shows off two different ways to take off a t-shirt in a second, notably faster than the conventional method. This is certainly appreciated, given that we all want more time to view Kamiya's ...

A survey by Japan Pres Research Institute asked 1,000 people across various countries for their views on Japan. Part of this included naming living or dead Japanese people that they knew. The results were, to say the least, intriguing... By default the survey became a resource for seeing which Japanese people are famous abroad. In France, America, South Korea and other places, the results were familiar: the prime minister, emperor, popular sports figures, an anime character, and so on. But in Thailand, things were rather different: 1. Shinzo Abe (178) 2. Doraemon (111) 3. The ...

Mero Imai is a former Olympic snowboarder turned nude model and call girl. As we reported in April, the 29-year-old single mother from Osaka has also now added porn star to her cluttered resume. Her debut Snow Drop was released May 1st from Muteki, which specializes in minor celebrities making the switch to porn. The first pictures are in, so let's take a look. What do you think? Mero Imai has a nice body and there's always the novelty factor with a release like this, but otherwise it looks pretty banal in terms of setting and on-screen ...

Another former AKB48 idol has made her porn debut, once again proving the thin pink line that exists between the industries. Joining numerous other ex-AKB girls who "graduated" onto to adult video careers, Ryo Sakata's first porn film was released in mid-March from the Maxing label. She has already released a second one this month. Clearly she and her paymasters want to milk her appeal, which is not hard to see. Here are some preview images from her first release. To be fair, the 27-year-old Ryo Sakata was only a member of AKB48 for around half a month in ...

Last month it was Miyako Akane. Earlier this month it was former Olympic snowboarder (and call girl) Mero Imai. This week it's Miu Nakamura. The adult video label Muteki is really on a roll if the latest rumor is true: retired idol Miu Nakamura is about to make her long-awaited porn debut, reports Tokyo Sports. She's a minor gravure idol probably most famous for her hair nude full-frontal photo shoots, which she first did in 2011. She started off as a junior idol when she was a teenager and ostensibly retired in 2012 after a 7-year career. Like Imai, she is alleged to have later worked ...

As we know all too well, there is a veritable mountain of adult toys out there based on Japanese porn stars. The best are the "clone" onaholes, especially masturbators produced with sophisticated 3D-scanning technology. We are pleased to share the news that the lovely Kana Yume has finally joined the ranks of AV idols who have been immortalized as sex toys. The Kana Yume Curvy Body Onahole is as good as it sounds. In addition to its realistic design and snug hole, the masturbator comes with a bonus DVD containing an image slideshow of original photos of Kana Yume. After all, you can ...
