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 ...

Newbie porn starlet Anri Sakaguchi has been arrested for attempted extortion. She apparently tried to extort money from a bar host with whom she was involved. She was arrested by Tokyo police on April 18th. The 26-year-old Sakaguchi was a celebrity (famous largely for being the daughter of actress Ryoko Sakaguchi) who made her debut on the Muteki label in autumn 2016. Professionally now known just as "Anri", she has since starred in another four titles. Her most recent one was released on DVD on April 13th. There were rumors that she joined the Muteki (and later Moodzy) roster ...

The world media has once again taken an interest in Japanese pornography -- in particular, porn made for and starring seniors. We previously noted the press attention lavished on silver porn star Yasue Tomita and veteran male performer Shigeo Tokuda. Doing the rounds of various overseas media outlets this time is an Associated Foreign Press article about the retirement of Maori Tezuka. After a decade of peeling off for X-rated movies, a Japanese porn actress famous for being the country's oldest has called it quits -- at the ripe old age of 80. Maori Tezuka, a former opera ...

Is Shoko Takahashi/Takasaki the perfect soapland sex worker? She certainly looks and acts the part in her latest AV release from Moodyz, aptly titled "Gravure Soap". The former gravure idol with the mega bust, whose switch to a career in porn last year was one of the highlights of the calendar, demonstrates how an awesome soapland experience should look. We have to use our fertile imaginations for how it feels, though. After all, she certainly has the breasts for paizuri and a curvy body that is ideal for rubbing herself all over a very lucky, prone male ...

Recently we've been admiring a nice trend for weekly magazines in Japan to produce fantastic photo shoots featuring a host of stars showing off their naked bodies. We saw it in the 51 naked porn stars in Weekly Playboy and then 50 semi-naked gravure ...

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 ...

Earlier this year Weekly Playboy already organized one of the best photo shoots ever when they brought together 50 gravure idols in one studio. As part of its 50th anniversary celebrations the magazine also put up a billboard in Shinjuku with life-sized images of top models. Now the generous editors have followed up with 51 Japanese porn stars, all lined up naked in one mega assembly. Sadly the nipples and pussie are censored for the online version (the print edition, maybe not so). What's the point of getting all this flesh together if you're not going to show ...

The feel-good story of the year has turned out to have an unhappy ending, folks. We made no secret of our joy when an advertising display screen in Indonesia was "porn-jacked" so that it started streaming Japanese pornography. The incident happened on September 30th in Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta, during the rush hour on a 24-square-meter (260-square-foot) LED billboard. The porn was broadcast on a web browser for five minutes before the police cut the power to the screen. However, this was enough time for it to be filmed by many motorists. It soon started spreading on social media ...

The latest big porn debut is another lady who is switching from mainstream entertain to AV. The actress and model Anri Sakaguchi released "What a day!!" on the Muteki label this month, which specializes in crossover debuts. Sakaguchi is the daughter of the late actress Ryoko Sakaguchi and golfer Tateo Ozaki. The 25-year-old apparently has large debts and has been forced to turn to porn to make ends meet. The first pictures from Sakaguchi's release have now emerged, showing her nipples and tits that are on the modest yet pointy side. It has been reported that her fee is ...

Picture the scene. You're driving down the highway and suddenly you look up at the advertising billboard overlooking the road. Rather than the usual commercial for that drink or car you'll never buy, it's playing porn. Japanese porn. This is what greeted drivers passing through Jakarta, Indonesia, last month. On the large advertising screen, in place of an actual commercial or video, someone's browser was displaying -- which just so happened to be showing a clip from a Japanese AV. Fortunately for the morals of the city (and unfortunately for the horny drivers), what was ...

Want to see what Kanna Hashimoto is like in bed? The sweeter-than-sweet is unlikely to be making her actual porn debut any time soon (though many of her music idol peers do have a habit of "graduating" into adult careers, so it's not completely off the books), but the next best thing is this Kanna Hashimoto lookalike porno. Kanna, if you recall, burst into the mainstream in 2013 after capturing the hearts of Japan's netizens. Since then she has become a major force in the music idol industry and fronts big advertising campaigns. This porn title stars Kaname Otori, who was born in ...

Shoko Takahashi (aka Shoko Takasaki) has been making an impression with her new AV release, her first on the Moodyz label after her spectacular debut for Muteki earlier this year. The beach-set "G-cup Perfect Body Celebrity Shoko Takahashi" was released on September 1st and makes ample use of the star's signature bust -- and her radiant smile. After all, no bikini is big enough to keep those breasts under wraps for long. It's a whopping 165 minutes long, so expect plenty of gratuitous swimwear shots and more. Moodyz are really capitalizing on ...

The Kabe-Jiri Hard Butt Hole Masturbator is not only one of the best new buttocks onaholes around, it also celebrates one of our favorite underground Japanese sex fetishes. The realistically hefty adult toy has an internal bone structure that simulates the sensation of a girl who is bent over through a hole in the wall with her beautiful ass ready for you to take her from behind. As Kanojo Toys says, just slide your member inside her while resting your hands on her luscious hips and squeeze for a tighter, harder experience. That's all very nice, you might say, but ass ...

YouTuber Kei recently posted a video that is generating quite a lot of discussion and views. Well, given its provocative and click-baity title, it's not surprising: What the Japanese Think of Japanese Porn. As Kei says, "Japan is famous for many things: its rich culture, Hello Kitty, and porn." Yeah, put that on the 2020 Olympic Games posters. He then proceeds to ask several young Japanese men and women for their views about Japanese AV, or porn. Well, if one gentleman is to believed, men watch AV because of "certain needs" and "stress relief". That's quite the euphemism. ...

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 ...

The Japanese AV industry is under a lot of pressure right now. Just today we heard that top porn star Nozomi Aso has been arrested on drug charges. Then there have been all the reports and criticisms about alleged coercion and exploitation in the industry, which even led to the arrest of porn industry staff and an official industry apology last month. Now the arrests have led to new charges. This time, the president of production company CA, Yoshihide Murayama, is one of 52 people -- 9 actresses 24 male performers, plus crew -- accused of indecent exposure during a shoot a camping ...

This is a growing trend: Japanese women's past dabbling in porn unexpectedly exposed, jeopardizing their new-found careers. Already this year we have seen voice actress Emi Niita's previous AV moonlighting come to light, while we recently blogged about a TV presenter who lost her job due to a porn appearance. It's certainly much easier today to search and find images of obscure and even anonymous porn stars, though the sheer volume of porn produced in Japan annually also makes this no mean feat. If you appeared in something, the chances are someone has put the DVD online and your past ...

In 2015, Nippon Television landed in hot water when it rescinded a job offer for a college graduate after it found out she had experience as a Ginza hostess. Rina Sasazaki took the broadcaster to court and won a settlement as well as her original job offer back again. Here's a similar cautionary tale. Kayo Matsumoto is a freelance TV presenter (called "announcers" in Japan). She was forced to leave TV Aichi in September 2014 after her dabbling in porn was exposed. As we know, the AV industry is absolutely huge and every year an army of women debut in porn. Most have short careers ...

Following a sex scandal (alleged prostitution!), the gravure idol Shoko Takasaki has made her porn debut on the Muteki AV label, which specializes in porn featuring former idols and actors. Ahead of her debut as "Shoko Takahashi" (changing her names for legal reasons after she left her previous agency), our voluptuous lady posed semi-nude for some ravishing shots... Though there was some confusion over the rumors of Takasaki's switch from gravure to porn, the naysayers have been proved wrong and these images reveal what a delight the results appear to be... Behold ...

What seemed to be a one-off by a former SKE48 that proved such a hit it developed into a longer porn career, and Momona Kito (now performing under the name Yua Mikami) has morphed into a fully fledged AV star. Her new-found confidence and sass is obvious if you compare her rather timid first appearance last year with this year's releases. Here are some stills from her latest porn release, which really show off Momona's breasts. Out April 1st, the setting is thrillingly domestic. The bathing scene looks seriously hot. Currently Momona is releasing a new AV ...
