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 ...

Today in Japan is White Day, when men are supposed to buy chocolates for women, who do the same on Valentine's Day. So it's another romantic day in the annual calendar, along with Christmas Eve. As such, porn giant Soft on Demand has set up a novel light display in the heart of Tokyo's Shibuya neighborhood to promote, well, sex and renewable energy. And it's not even real sex, but the virtual kind. The display, formally called the White Day Illumination Shining with Virgin-Produced Electricity (童貞力発電で輝くホワイトデーイルミネーション), is a way for ...

The latest Japanese adult video debut to attract our seasoned eyes is last year's from Waka Misono, who, if the publicity is to be trusted, is an 18-year-old with angelic white skin and a fully natural F-cup bust. The young lady is also very petite -- apparently measuring a mere 155 cm (5.1 feet) in height. That makes for quite a combination with her chest. Her debut, "Please Teach Me Sex," came out in February 2018 from a Soft on Demand label, directed by Kurumi Ichinose. The 140-minute title (1SDAB00054) was followed by "I Came for the First Time" (1SDAB00056), which came out in March ...

We wrote about the adult video debut of Tina Nanami back in late 2018 but could only find time in our busy schedules finally to check it out last week. Released on January 10th, "Rin toshite hakanai" (roughly, Dignified Ephemeral) (1STARS00025) from SOD Star is a solid first porn title and Tina Nanami (七海ティナ), who is apparently a former Nagoya underground idol (chika idol) and Shibuya 109 Men's sales representative, should have a bright career ahead of her. Pale skin? Big bust? Beautiful face? Tina's got it all! Her second AV release (1STARS00037) already came out on ...

Photographer Yuji Susaki has returned with a follow-up to the successful Oppai Zukan Full-Sized Gravure Idol Breasts Reference Book, which included copious to-scale images of the busts of dozens of gravure idols. The sequel, 3D Oppai Zukan Full-Size Adult Video Idol Breasts Reference Book (Gurutto Mawaseru! Gensundai Oppai Zukan 3D), is, as the title sugests, a three-dimensional update, since now you can also use your phone to read the QR codes on each idol's page and display the breasts in 3D. Moreover, the idols this time are not gradol who have to keep their clothes on, but adult ...

The Japanese porn industry certainly knows a good opportunity for parody when it sees it. We've previously seen amazing adult video parodies of the zombie movie One Cut of the Dead, the anime Your Name., and the science fiction franchise Ultraman. Here's another one for our growing list -- though the source was already kind of a parody in its own right. The 2018 commercials for the durable Loupe glasses by the eyewear brand Hazuki were pretty wacky and tongue in cheek from the start. Purporting to be a TED-style presentation demonstrating a new pair of eyeglasses, Ken Watanabe ...

And so the pre-Olympic crackdown continues. After earlier initiatives outside Tokyo, we reported in November 2017 on the decision by the convenience store chain Ministop to stop selling pornographic magazines. Well, the sentiment is spreading and one of the largest chains in the country, Lawson, announced on January 21st that its 14,574 branches nationwide would in principle cease sales of adult magazines by the end of August. Until now, it was up to affiliates in the franchise whether or not they sold porn magazines, which typically are available in most conbinis among the rack of ...

After yesterday's post about the adult video debut of a former Bakusute Sotokanda Icchome idol, we are following up with another porn newbie, though this time a complete unknown (as far as we are aware). Mayu Okamoto (岡本真憂) is, if we believe the marketing, an actual female university student -- a demographic recently the subject of controversy in Japan, after a weekly tabloid published an article ranking which college girls are easier to sleep with and ignited an international scandal. We are not sure if the 19-year-old Okamoto (obviously not her real name) is a genuine college ...

Former Bakusute Sotokanda Icchome idol Nana Nanase (七瀬菜七) will make her adult video debut next month as Honoka Kinami (木南ほのか). Her first release will be Idols Love Sex Fuckstage (sic, アイドルだって、Hが大好きFUCKSTAGE) (H_1324SKMJ026), out on February 8th, from the label Sekimen Joshi. The 140-minute title is really playing up the idol's former job, dressing her in an AKB48-inspired costume for a threesome. We have yet to see the full AV but judging from the preview images, she seems to throw herself gallantly into her new career role with genuine ...

We are currently marooned out in the Japanese countryside, far from the sights and sounds of Tokyo's kinky wonderscape and the joys of attractive ladies. Fortunately an Internet connection is keeping us sane. As we round out the year, we wanted to highlight another recent development in the busy world of adult video -- and something to look forward to in the New Year! This time it's Cocona Yuzuki (aka Kokona Yuzuki), a voice actress (seiyu) who has been vocal in the past about sexual coercion in the industry. At the ripe old age of 23, after 13 years of work as an idol, gravure model, ...
