The veteran voice actor Toru Furuya may well be 70 years old and something of a legend in the industry, having provided voices for such series as Conan, Gundam, Dragon Ball, and One Piece, but his career and status is currently facing ruin due to a sex scandal. Furuya married his second wife in 1985 but rumors have long swirled that he is a little too friendly with his fans, including inappropriate touching at meet-and-greet events. Earlier this week, Furuya issued a public apology in response to a report in the Weekly Bunshun tabloid that he been having an affair for more than four ...

Everyone has a past and though it's common for people to use different names when they switch agency or industry, netizens still have ways of identifying you. And so it is with a performer in a new AV release from Rocket, who has been identified as a former winner of second prize at Miss Tokyo Sports, a prestigious gravure contest whose winners include many big names in the industry. The AV in question (code 1RCTD00591) is the tenth entry in the popular, increasingly outlandish Shameful Brainwashing! I Was Turned into a High-Cut Person, which features women in leotards and similar ...

We have written before about political candidate Yukiko Kaname, who is hoping to win election one day as a Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan lawmaker. Having failed to win a seat in 2022, the sex-positive feminist Kaname is undeterred and her main campaigning revolves around key issues related to equality for sex workers. With a Lower House election likely to happen this year, the 47-year-old Kaname is still working hard to make a name for herself among potential voters. She recently stirred up controversy by promising a since-deleted tweet to ask the prime minister if he has ever ...

A Japanese refugee. It sounds like an oxymoron, but it's not. In fact, the Office of the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees reports that dozens of Japanese citizens receive refugee status around the world every year. And one recent case has generated headlines. Two Japanese women have received refugee status in Canada due to discrimination they faced in Japan. In the hilariously old-fashioned wording of the Asahi Shimbun's English edition, the discrimination they faced was for being "lesbians and members of the weaker sex." Campaigners and advocates like to the lack of Christian ...

In Japan, female voice performers are incredibly popular as idols and celebrities despite only displaying their oral talents in their work for anime series and movies. Some are able to carve out lucrative sidelines as models, singers, and gravure idols. If they have the looks and following for this, it is usually apparent pretty quickly and their agencies don't miss a chance to make some extra yen. But others bide their time. Such is the case with Minori Chihara (茅原実里), the seiyu who has waited until her forties to cement her gravure career. Great news if you love Minori Chihara. ...

Like millions of others, you have probably seen and enjoyed the homemade porn content by Naomiii, recording her sexual exploits with a partner in various parts of Japan, and showcasing her amazing body, which probably includes the best-shaped labia we have possibly ever seen. But publicly shared sex tapes and amateur porn are still subject to the same obscenity law in Japan that demands censorship of genitalia, and you are especially liable to attract police attention if you are successfully selling content online -- and ultimately face arrest. And so it has come to pass for Naomiii, ...

Like gravure idols, a lot of emphasis with adult video idols falls inevitably on the size of their breasts. In other words, do they have big tits? Let's be honest, though, a lot of the breasts we see in JAV are not fully natural. Big tits are great -- and surely the main reason that L-cup gravure idol Yu Tano quickly transitioned from gravure to porn -- but what about the butt? What are some current AV stars with nice, curvy asses? It's a question we often mull and, in lieu of a proper ranking, we came up with some suggestions. Yu Shinoda (篠田ゆう) Kaho Imai ...

Well, if you liked the initial news, you're going to love the first preview pics of the 20-year-old's debut AV, which show off her naked body -- and especially those amazing bakunyu tits.

Early last year, we reported on the lawsuit by former porn star Kaho Shibuya over the leaking of her past content. What happens to your work after you retire is a matter of concern for adult video performers, who have historically lacked control over how production companies and distributors make money off their bodies. It has been common for studios to continue releasing older content in anthologies long after a performer has officially stopped working in the industry. A new lawsuit at Tokyo District Court shows another side to this issue. The stripper Miyuki Ariga (有賀美雪) is suing ...

Rina Koike has been part of our lives (and this blog) for so long, we almost forgot she was still doing gravure! Having made her debut two decades ago as an actress -- she appeared in a Sailor Moon adaptation way back in 2004 -- and now reaching the ripe old age of 30, Koike will release her first photo book in eight years to celebrate the milestone. It was shot in Vietnam and features shots of the doe-eyed model in the Southeast Asia country's famous outdoor markets. The best, most alluring shots, though, are indoors and more intimate, as these preview pics show. The as-yet ...
