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 ...

A naked video of gravure idol Yuriko Ishihara has leaked online. The POV hamedori-style footage shows the busty model nude, fingering herself, and being groped by a lucky guy. Who uploaded it is unknown, but it spells the end of her career. In some of the shots her face is partially covered by a surgical mask, though this is frequently removed. It is clearly her. The 34-minute video, ahem, climaxes in her jerking the guy off (for most of the time under a plastic sheet for some bizarre reason -- hygiene?). Strangely, the whole tryst seems to happen in a ...

As part of our work we get to see and try out a lot of adult toys on a daily basis, but these ones caught our eye as a cut above the rest. Adult toy maker KMP has produced a series of "3D-scanned" toys based on top Japanese porn stars such as Kurea Hasumi, Kizuna Sakura, Rika Hoshimi, and Ayaka Tomoda. We've certainly seen plenty of "clone" onaholes before, going back to masturbator sleeves in the 2000s such as the Meiki Maria Ozawa. But this seems to represent a new level in scientific realism. In the past, we think, some lucky technicians just took exact measurements of the AV idol's ...

The former Olympic snowboarder Mero Imai is to make her porn debut on the Muteki label, a studio that specializes in celebrities switching to the adult video industry. (Recent examples include Anri Sakaguchi, Miyako Akane, and Yua Mikami.) As we wrote back in 2015, Mero Imai is a former half-pipe Olympic competitor in 2006. However, her lack of success at the Winter games led to personal and family problems and she started working as a hostess in Osaka. As is sadly too common in the hostessing world, she then segued into a career as a delivery health call girl. She also had plastic ...

Haruna Kojima is about to turn 29 but is still a member of an idol group. That's either dedication or desperation, it seems. Only a very small number of former AKB48 idols have forged successful secondary careers. Most have vanished. Some have become porn stars. Perhaps conscious of this, Haruna Kojima has delayed her graduation for some time. It was first announced in 2016. But it seems it is finally happening this month, and this year has seen various graduation events to finalize her departure from the one-time supergroup. And so it is no surprise that she has celebrated her 12 years ...

Yesterday we blogged about the very welcome news that busty H-cup model Miyako Akane is making her porn debut this spring. Here's another busty gravure idol who could certainly have a very successful AV career if she chose to take that path. We previously wrote about Jun Amaki after she posted a funny "breasts" (oppai) version of the Pikotaro song Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen. Sadly (and inexplicably), that video is no longer on YouTube but still available on Twitter. The I-cup (yes, that's right!) model was once a member of the idol group Kamen Joshi (Masked Girls). She's no longer ...

She's finally done it. Miyako Akane has answered our prayers by making the next logical step in her career and becoming a porn star this spring. Miyako Akane is a gravure idol and chakuero idol -- i.e., a busty idol who keeps her clothes on but barely (as opposed to AV idols, who do fully nude photo shoots all the time). After wowing the nation with her amazing H-cup bust in what may be the most incredible and revealing swimsuit in Japan as well as 360-degree virtual reality softcore porn, things must have been drying up for Miyako Akane... or she just wanted to take her career to the ...

Kei Jonishi of the Osaka-based AKB48 spin-off idol group NMB48 has released a new semi-nude photo book, "21K". The soon-to-be 22-year-old idol from Shiga is one of the most popular members of NMB48, alongside Sayaka Yamamoto and Miru Shiroma. "21K" is her second photo book. Released in February, it is set to propel Jonishi to further stardom. (That being said, at the moment the buzz is actually mostly about Nogizaka46's Mai Shiraishi and her photo book, "Passport".) The photos include images of the serenely white and thin Jonishi standing with her chest exposed and her modesty covered ...

Today we wanted to resurrect to our Idol of the Week series, where we showcase a gorgeous lady from the pantheon of gravure idols (glamor models) in Japan. This may not become a regular fixture like it used to be but we do spot some tempting examples every now and then. (For more gravure idols, check out our Tumblr account.) Eri Oishi is one such: a fashion model, gravure idol and television "tarento". With a slinky, sporty body, this "Heisei Venus" was born in Tokyo in 1993. What really makes her stand out from the crowded market of tarento and gravure idols is that she is openly ...

We've long been fans of Rina Aizawa and her charmingly slender and waif-like body, which despite having a very petite build still offers something in the way of a pert rear. That's a combination we don't turn down lightly. So we are pleased to see the 25-year-old gravure idol is getting some mainstream exposure in a late-night TV drama. Sadly, this is regular Japanese television so there's no nudity per se but we do get to see what Rina might look like in bed. Based on a manga by Mengo Yokoyari, Scum's Wish (Kuzu no Honkai) on Fuji Television is about high schoolers and their various ...

A Japanese newswire article about sexual harassment among aspiring models and idols is doing the rounds, confirming what we've been saying for years. Apparently, a government survey has shown that 26.9% of Japanese young female models and starlets have received "unwanted requests for sexually oriented photo shoots". This comes hot on the heels of last year's controversy about widespread coercion in the porn industry. In the first survey by the Cabinet Office on sexual abuse against young women, 7.7% of respondents had been offered contracts to become models or ...

We've had this post planned for a few months and finally we think we have enough examples to make it work. Last year we noticed something of a trend for popular models and actresses to show off their sporty bodies. Perhaps this is part of a push towards the Olympics in 2020? As we know, there are plenty of hot female athletes in Japan, from boxers to gymnasts, snowboarders, volleyball players, bodybuilders, para-athletes, and more. And then there are "idols" whose entire schtick is that they are sporty, like Ami Imamura and her powerful baseball swing. She can dominate us on the ...

We love to see old favorites coming back into our lives -- and we love to see women who aren't 22 being celebrated for their beauty and older sex appeal. And so we are delighted to see that Hiroko Sato is making a comeback, bush and all. The actress is best known for her early gravure career and nude scenes in such films as the low-budget A Night in Nude -- Salvation (2010) with Naoto Takenaka and directed by the veteran Takashi Ishii, who also made the soft-core porn films Flower and Snake with Aya Sugimoto, Sweet Whip with Yuki Mamiya, and Hello, My Dolly Girlfriend with Kokone ...
