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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

You may recall our glee when advance images appeared showing busty gravure model Moemi Katayama fully in the buff -- bush and all -- for her new photo book, Rashin. It's rare for a gravure model to make the switch to a hair nude shoot (okay, so she's wearing clothes but they are see-through, so this is basically full-frontal stuff) just as her career is starting to get going. Normally they wait until they are over 30 and things are not looking great for them, such as Haruna Yabuki did recently (though hair nudes were originally used by some stars to launch their careers). Or ...

Here is an awesome, belated Christmas present for you folks: nude photos of Moemi Katayama that have leaked ahead of the official release of her new photo book out next year. The 26-year-old Katayama has become increasingly better known over the past 1-2 years. She released her first photo book in September and the new one, "Rashin", comes out on January 5th. Since 2015 she has been a favorite gravure idol for weekly tabloid magazine shoots, and even appeared in a Kirin ad in May. This, though, is by far the most explicit the busty G-cup gravure idol has ...

Disgraced gravure idol and now one of AV's top porn stars Shoko Takahashi/Takasaki has joined her fellow porn newcomer Yua Mikami (Momona Kito) for what must be the sexiest photo shoot of the year. These nude shots, taken for Weekly Playboy in the autumn, really show off both their voluptuous bodies to the full. What's more, in a more recent subsequent nude photo shoot the two were joined by none other than Mana Sakura, who is already a major star in her own right. There was even a 30-minute video to accompany the "lesbian threesome" ...

We reported earlier this year about the AV debut of actress and model Anri Sakaguchi. To appear in "What a day!!" the 25-year-old Sakaguchi (now going by just "Anri") is reportedly getting paid ¥120 million -- a suspiciously high figure considering she is a B-list celebrity. She made her JAV debut on the Muteki label, which specializes in these kinds of career switchovers from gravure, music idol or mainstream entertainment. Past successes include with Yua Mikami/Momona Kito and Shoko Takahashi/Takasaki. Most of these stars, though, do one or just a small number AV releases before ...

The "hair nude" is a curious Japanese-English phrase. It refers not just to naked flesh; it's naked flesh with genital hair. What is "shocking" here is the display of pubic hair, the line by which art and entertainment is usually fettered in Japan. It is fine to have plenty of nudity in films and publications, but to avoid the century-old ambiguous obscenity laws, people censored or did not show actual pubic hair. The hair nude set out to deliberately show this was something to be challenged, legally and artistically. While the likes of Nobuyoshi Araki had already made erotic ...

Shoko Takasaki stunned us when she made her porn debut earlier this year as Shoko Takahashi. Though her switch to AV came because she was mired in a prostitution scandal, her release on the Muteki label was such a roaring success that is going to release a second film on September 1st. "G-cup Perfect Body Celebrity Shoko Takahashi" is being released by Moodyz as part of the AV Open 2016 series. Takasaki/Takahashi has also been busy with several hair nude (full-frontal nude) shoots, showing off her gorgeous G-cup body for all the world to see. Some of these are grainy scans, but ...

We got pretty excited when news broke in May that model Haruna Yabuki was releasing a hair nude photo book by Kishin Shinoyama. Now that the collection -- called simply "Haruna" -- has hit the shelves, we are pleased that some scans are making the rounds online. More will surely emerge over the weeks -- and hopefully better quality ones, too. For now, enjoy Haruna's lush thirty-something body. If she seems too good to be true, remember that her celebrity boyfriend wasn't satisfied and two-timed her with a hostess. She literally found him in bed ...

He may well be an old man now but Kishin Shinoyama still likes to photograph nude bodies, and generate headlines for doing so. The king of the hair nude recently shot a hair nude photo book with Haruna Yabuki (photos are starting to appear online -- we'll have a post on this soon). His publications have been bestsellers and he also has mainstream recognition from the art world, too. His new photography exhibition, "La Maison de rendez-vous", is at Hara Museum of Contemporary Art from September 3rd to January 9th. That's over 100 days of nude photography, folks. It features around ...

We've always been a fan of the older idols. We find the photo shoots sexier and the woman more alluring. From Chiharu Komatsu to Naomi Kawashima and Azumi Kawashima, our glory days are the 1990s and early 2000s, especially when the so-called "hair nude" shoots were still at their peak. Kanako Kojima is one such beauty. Born in 1975, her career height was from around 1997 for a few years as an actress and tarento. Towards the end -- in 2006 -- she released a great hair nude photo book. She also showed off her naked pregnant body. These days she is in her forties and out of the ...

Mitsu Dan is no stranger when it comes to nudity and showing us pretty much everything she's got. Even as she gets older (she's now a ripe 35) and goes more mainstream, she still seems unafraid to shed her clothing. While he days of appearing in soft-core bondage movies are likely behind her, a recent spread in a weekly magazine featured deliciously nude shots of Mitsu Dan taken over the course of the last 12 months. Her honeypot body is as curvy as ever. Care to spend a year in her sumptuous ...

The alluring gravure idol and actress Haruna Yabuki (formerly known as Mari Abe) has gone fully nude in a "hair nude" shoot for Golden Week in a weekly tabloid magazine, shot by the famed photographer Kishin Shinoyama. Though she has done semi-nude shoots before, this is a new step for the 1984-born Yabuki, who has officially now become a jukujo like Manami Hashimoto or Mitsu Dan. The truth is, Yabuki's career is at a bit of an ebb. She broke up with her idiot celebrity boyfriend after she caught him in bed with a hostess. It's been years since she was releasing photobooks and gracing ...

Not content with launching a porn career on the Muteki label as Momona Kito and already doing one "hair nude" (full frontal) photo shoot, Momona Kito is back with another very nice set of images to tickle our Golden Week vibe. Formerly of the AKB48 spin-off group SKE48, Momona Kito is just one of many ex-idols who have "graduated" to porn careers. The Muteki label has snagged some of these and also recently managed to get the porn debut of gravure idol Shoko ...

Japanese sportswomen are hot. Really hot. Whether it's volleyball players or bodybuilders, snowboarders, boxers or baseball players, these ladies have brawn and agility -- and would be powerhouses of energy in the sack. Joining this list is Risa Izumi. She once represented Japan in gymnastics for the Athens Olympics but her career has taken a different turn now. Today she is a nude model with a recent photo book release... and what a body she has. Like Yuki Eda has done before her, Risa Izumi fully shows off her slim and trim form with these naked poses. As you can see from the ...

Former SKE48 idol Momona Kito had such a hit with her first AV release that she was persuaded to make a full career out of it, releasing more films in 2016. The one-off release on the Muteki label generated a lot of excitement last year and also placed Kito (performing under the name Yua Mikami) firmly in the growing list of AKB and sister group members who had "graduated" onto careers in Japanese porn, which given the dark side of the idol industry (mafia involvement, managers grooming idols for sex) is not such a leap in a sense. Momona Kito/Yua Mikami has now posed for some nice hair ...

We previously covered the slinky, slutty delights of Yuki Mamiya, aka Yuki Mogami. The gravure idol is an occasional actress, appearing in such masterpieces as the soft-core pono Chotto Kawaii Iron Maiden. She has already done semi-nude (butt) shots and some very revealing gravure idol "image videos". But in May 2015 she did a hair nude (full frontal) shoot for Shukan Gendai, shot by the legendary Hajime Sawatari. He is a famous photographer but also does these hair nude shoots from time to time, such as with AV actress Yuu ...

It's been a long time since we did a regular "idol of the week" post but here's a great one to whet your appetites and make up for our tardiness. The shapely Anri Uda certainly made an impression on us when she posed for an (unfortunately censored) shoot for Weekly Playboy earlier in the year. That's one sure-fire way to make your gravure debut. Sadly the uncensored images are only available in the actual magazine. We love her body: curvy, but without a bust that's too overloaded. Born in 1991, Anri Uda is ...

Behold the beauty of Eimi Kuroda. Born in 1988, the haafu model has a Japanese father and English mother. She is good friends with fellow fashion model and haafu Kiko Mizuhara. They are both Tokyo party girls and like to get up to high jinks, such as impromptu pole dancing. Back in 2010, when she was still 22 and one would think careful about her future career, she jumped ahead and joined the hair nude club by posing for an entry in the Shincho Mook series of Gekkan photo-books. A series of alluring shots by Hajime Sawatari showed off her body -- all of it. The choice ...

The actress Mai Kitajima has been in the news recently. She has currently gone through a trial surrounding the paternity of the son she supposedly had with her former husband, former Hikari Genji idol Mikio Osawa. It seems Mai Kitajima was an active lady and had an affair with someone else, and their son was raised as Osawa's but in fact DNA testing has now categorically proved he is not related. The boy is 18. Osawa and Kitajima married in 1996 after a long courtship, ostensibly because she was pregnant. It seems that she wasn't seeing only Osawa during this time. She and Osawa ...

The completionist side to our personality just wants to post this, even though it's not new. What with all the fuss earlier this year of the porn debut of Momona Kito as Yua Mikami, we want to continue our exploration of this theme: the afterlife of Japan's "respectable" idols. Remember AKB48's Rumi Yonezawa? Well, since her departure from the group in 2012, it seems her career hit hard times. So many idols are processed through the well-grease machinery of the industry that there will inevitably be casualties that fall by the wayside. And given the open secret that idols ...

Rie Miyazawa's photo book "Santa Fe" came out in 1991, making the hair nude photo-book genre very famous. "Santa Fe" was a huge hit for Rie Miyazawa and photographer Kishin Shinoyama. It then became popular for young stars to announce their maturity through hair nude shoots -- plus a way to relaunch their career, as Miyazawa very successfully did. Compared to other "hair nude" photo books, though, "Sante Fe" is relatively tame. You only get a glimpse of Rie's bush. (Compare, say, to Saki Takaoka's hair nude shoot.) In a curious detail that has only been revealed ...
