We all know and love the likes of Maria Ozawa. But something like 95% of Japanese porn is populated not by stars but by so-called kikaku joyu, or "project actresses" -- these are the unsung heroines of an industry that products 20,000 titles a year. In the same way that American porn has anonymous fluffers doing much of the dog's work, the kikaku joyu provide the meat for all the incredible JAV porn films that involve sometimes dozens or even hundreds of actresses. They will play the "regular girl" roles -- OL, nurse, student etc. They are typically scouted on the streets or ...

Classic Japanese pornography star Nao Saejima (冴島奈緒) has passed away at the age of just 44, following a five-year battle with cancer. Saejima appeared in over forty JAV adult films and she also even formed a porn pop band in the late Eighties. Always popular with fans and colleagues, Saejima was famed for her truly exquisite breasts, to which we at Tokyo Kinky would like to pay tribute with this ...

In Japan toilets are very special places. They can either be somewhere terrifying -- the old style of public lavatory resembles a kind of hole in the ground which you squat over -- or bewildering -- in particular, the hi-tech electronic ones with heated seats, dozens of buttons and even voices that talk to you. But did you know they can also be places where sexy women reside, waiting for your every command? The Fantasy Toilet series of Japanese adult films is one of the most original and strange settings we've encountered (and that's saying a lot since JAV porn is full of ...

This has been floating around for a little while now but we wanted to spread the word about this "Japanese porn cultural exchange" campaign, a fundraiser looking for backers to help them make a porn film with a JAV star from Japan... in America. We think the success of this depends on if they make the film in the normal local way or if they try to just do a U.S.-style porno with a Japanese girl. (A third, more conceptual alternative is if they do it in a "Japanese" way but as seen through the eyes of the west.) We think there is an awful lot in JAV that is very culturally contextual and ...

One of the branches of Soft on Demand (SOD) is currently seeking men to appear in a new feature. Well, even with the library of JAV porn titles produced every year in Japan -- possibly the highest in the world -- it shouldn't be too hard to find pro, semi-pro or just average Joes to play roles, right? But these guys need to be virgins! The maker is looking to recruit as-yet non-deflowered men over 18 and who of course have no prior experience with filming porn (no doubt they have lots of experience watching the stuff). Well, this could be the craziest way to loose your cherry ever, ...

The Magic Mirror Studio (or "MM Go") is a great trope that pops up in many Japanese porn films. It takes a truck with one side converted into a "magic mirror" (one-way glass) so you can see the world outside going by while all sorts of crazy things happen in the truck -- and on camera. The kinkiness lies in the contrast between the nudity and sex and the totally normal life on the streets outside that goes on innocuously, oblivious to the movie being filmed meters away. Originally the JAV titles using magic mirror moving studios implied that the people outside could see in like a ...

Japanese porn is full of surprises. From old people porn to public toilet bondage, hentai and homelessness. In the same way that a westerner looks at an "oriental" Japanese and thinks he or she is attractive, of course, the same thing applies the other way too. Hence the proliferates of haafu models, celebrities and actors -- and also in the porn world. The most famous would be Maria Ozawa, who is half French Canadian. But there is also the half-Brazilian goddess who goes by the simple name, Sarah. Now comes a new starlet, Michelle Takizawa, and in her latest title she is ...

Japanese porn superstar Taka Kato (加藤鷹) has claimed in an interview that he hasn't spanked his monkey since he was 17! Kato is known for having the "hand of God." He is able to bring women to tremulous and tremendous orgasms just with the aid of his finger. Sometimes he is credited with almost inventing the shiofuki squirting genre of adult video. A JAV legend, Kato is now 49 but showing no signs of retiring soon and is nicknamed "the Goldfinger" for his uncanny touch. He is also responsible for one of the best Fairy vibrator attachments in history, a finger extension molded ...

What is one of the most bizarre porno situations you can think of? Plenty, right? Well, here's one that I never imagined possible and it truly happened. A Japanese porn company took a sweet, innocent Japanese girl in school uniform, dumped her in LA with no money or help, and told her to seek shelter with the homeless. The tramps were happy to take the cute lass in and she repaid them in the only way she knew...All filmed for the cameras of course! World Homeless: LA Slum Big Cock Tramp & Japanese Girl is the resulting porn film, running a mammoth three hours. After all, there are a ...

We just spotted this interview with Shigeo Tokuda in the Guardian. Tokuda-san is 77 and has starred in over 350 JAV flicks, making even veterans like Maria Ozawa seem like newbies. But he hasn't just been in so many because he is a long-timer. No, he only started when he was 60 and so in fact he has starred only in films made for Japan's rapidly aging population's tastes. That this has spawned such a vast library of titles shows the thirst the oldies have for watching someone their own age going at it. Tokuda is a grandfather -- his name is a stage name but his daughter apparently ...
