Another Bakusute Sotokanda Icchome idol has made her adult video debut. Continuing a trend that has included countless former AKB group idols and Bakusute Sotokanda Icchome ladies like Nana Nanase and Yu Ito, Rina Iijima (飯島里奈) will release her first AV as a digital download from May 25th and then as a physical release on June 1st. The former fourth-generation Bakusute Sotokanda Icchome member Iijima has now become Yui Nagase (永瀬ゆい) for the 150-minute Yui Nagase, the 149-cm Cute Girl Who Came from Sotokanda -- Fuck Stage (MIFD00070) from Moodyz. The title echoes the debut of ...

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 ...

We stumbled upon this great Twitter feed detailing a report by Shinbunka, the publishing industry trade journal in Japan, about the decline of the much-loved porn magazine vending machine. It also cites from an interview with the photographer Tetsuya Kurosawa, who has documented the vending machines (visiting some 500 locations along the way!). It's true, we haven't seen one for many a moon. Here's why. At the peak of the adult vending machine boom, there were some 50,000 machines nationwide in the 1970s. That lofty number has been reduced to a mere fraction now. What are left are often ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
