It's May 1st, the inaugural day of the new Reiwa era. And what better time to take a gander at some old porn from this cache of images recently shared online? Strictly speaking, we reckon these adult magazines come from the Showa period, which ended in 1989, rather than the past three decades of Heisei, but there might be some overlap. Online searches seem to reveal nothing, so they are probably quite obscure. We just love the titles: from "Visual Communication Magazine for Young Adalt" (sic) and "Fucky-up" (sic) to "Rape me" and "Sexual Les Girls." The shoots themselves range from the ...

Today is the final day of Heisei. As the emperor abdicates this afternoon, we are remembering the past three decades and all those lovely ladies that have passed through our lives (in actuality or through the lens of gravure and adult video). We should put together a proper "adult Heisei" post soon but it might be too mammoth an undertaking. In the meantime, we are recalling recent good times and looking forward to the future with these two ladies. The dancer and model Karen Kimijima has made a comeback since her drug arrest in early 2018, which is a very fine thing because she has frankly ...

As we prepare for the extended Golden Week holiday in Japan from this weekend, we're naturally looking around for adult video content to keep us entertained. We spotted a porn debutant who really should be on everyone's to-watch list. Rena Kuroi (くろいれな) released her first AV from Kuki on April 2nd. "Hatsuhana" (ADZ327) is meant to be one of just two AVs that the 22-year-old Rena will make. According to her official profile, she lives in Kamakura and is an "Earthling," which is reassuring (though alien sex is a whole other subgenre of JAV). Her second (and potentially final) AV ...

Fans of the former Doll Elements music idol Rika Tonosaki are in for a treat, because the cutie has stripped naked for her latest photo shoot. The photo shoot is only a "semi-nude" one, so you can see plenty of bare flesh like Rika's back and side boob but her buttocks is as far as she goes in terms of actual nudity... for now, at least. The 27-year-old, D-cup Rika Tonosaki was a member of Doll Elements from 2011 until the group disbanded in January 2017. She released her debut photo book in late 2016 as well as a couple of image videos. She is now hoping to expand her post-Doll Elements ...

After doing a "hair nude" full-frontal shoot last year, we wondered where the gravure idol and actress Bambi Watanabe would go next. It seems she went to TV Tokyo and for a visually tame but nonetheless sensual sex scene in a late-night drama series. In episode two of Kabukicho Bengonin Rinka (Kabukicho Attorney Rinka), which is about a female lawyer working among hostesses, Bambi is show stripping off in a love hotel room to reveal her largest chest, albeit hidden within a bra or under her arms. An old dude looks on with obvious interest. He then has sex with her, even though she is ...

If you thought that when Sola Aoi got married, you would see the last of her, think again. The popular former adult video star is now heavily pregnant but isn't content to sit back and wait for nature to take its course. No, even the imminent start of maternity is a way for her to connect with her legions of fans and, if we're frank, take her fame (as in 655,000-Instagram-followers-level fame) to new extremes. "Welcome to the world, Sola's baby [sic]," says the publicity for Abema TV's live broadcast of the birth of her twins. Yes, 35-year-old Sola (sometimes spelled Sora) is going to ...

A scandal can derail any career but the world of idols (music or gravure) is particularly sensitive to such scandals, especially those involving sex or drugs. Heaven help you if it is revealed you have a boyfriend. You may have to shave your head or quit the industry. Related to this, we stumbled upon an interesting example of what happens when an idol is "freed" from the shackles of an agency. The minor idol Sayuri Madoka announced that she had left her management agency on April 7th, ostensibly because her "real job" had become too busy. Regardless of the truth behind this, what is ...

The latest example of the transition from music idol to adult video idol is Eri Haruno, formerly of the girl group SAY-LA. She makes her porn debut this month with "The Last Idol Debut" (84MKMP00270), released April 12th by the label million. As is typical, Haruno changed her professional name as part of her career switch and now goes by the moniker Uta Yumemita (夢見照うた). We like her hinnyu flat chest with its pointy nipples. As Eri Haruno, she was a member of SAY-LA for most of 2015. Now as Yuta Yumemita, perhaps she has a brighter future ahead of ...

NMB48's Miru Shiroma is hoping to establish herself as a stand-out star in her own right among the very crowded AKB league of idols with her debut photo book. Lavishly shot on the Gold Coast of Australia, the 21-year-old's unnamed first photo book will be released in Japan on June 19th. Clearly hoping to up the sales and her fan numbers by revealing some bust, the preview shots that have now appeared position Miru as a seductress Down Under. Goodbye cute, hello sexy. What do you think of this new direction for Miru? Until more images for the as-yet untitled book become available, here ...

Who wouldn't want to go on a date with Shoko Takahashi? The busty porn star is one of the most popular ladies in the adult video industry right now and certainly one of the most successful examples of a gravure idol crossing over into JAV. Well, forty fans have the chance to accompany Shoko Takahashi -- also known as Takasho -- on a special tour that leaves Shinjuku on April 20th by bus. At the rural destination, the tour will encompass erotically charged strawberry picking and then a private stay at a hot spring (onsen) resort. This latter will include a group dinner but, perhaps most ...
