Eimi Fukada is one of the most successful performers in JAV, well known not just for her adult video output but also her social media prominence and huge following among fans. She cultivates this by making regular video clips and posting them for her fans. But a couple of recent videos have got a lot of people talking -- and not in a good way. In the short videos, Eimi Fukada dances around in skimpy swimwear, possibly imitating slinky DJ Soda's social media videos. View this post on Instagram A post shared by 深田えいみ (@eimi0318) View ...

As regular readers will know, we are as interested in the current professional activities of Japanese porn stars as we are in their post-career lives: What do they do are they retire from adult video? What jobs do they do? Can they settle down with a partner and start a family? An interesting example of this is Suzumi Suzuki, who used to work as a porn star under the name Ruri Satoh in the mid-2000s. She then got a graduate degree from the University of Tokyo (she also holds an undergraduate degree from the equally prestigious Keio University) and launched a career as a sociologist and ...

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 ...

The 25th edition of Japan's largest fetish event, FetiFes, took place on April 28. Certain household responsibilities prevented the Tokyo Kinky team from attending, so we were pleased to find the festival had generously published a huge gallery of pictures from the event (available on the festival website along with galleries from past editions). All the images are taken by officially approved photographers (who are are credited on the gallery page images if you want to know who they are). Unfortunately, they are just a gallery, without captions, so it is hard for us to provide much ...

In early March, we reported on the exciting news that former AKB48 idol and nude model Satomi Kaneko was to make her porn debut as Kiho Kanematsu, after she had supposedly retired in 2023. We can now share the first preview images from her debut, which comes out from Muteki, a specialist is such crossovers. The 34-year-old's first AV, the 176-minute 18Gold (TEK00099), was released on digital formats on April 2 . We have yet to see the AV. If you've caught it already, please let us know your assessment of the quality. From the previews, it looks quite conventional, though Kaneko/Kanematsu's ...

Porn star Nanami Ogura (小倉七海) may still be just 21 years old but has already amassed a prodigious output of releases since making her debut with S1 No. 1 Style in September 2021, including multiple bestselling AVs as well as two print photo books and several digital ones. But that all seemed like a flash in the pan when she suddenly announced her retirement in October 2022, leading some to speculate it was due to the constraints placed on the JAV industry since the introduction of new porn legislation. Thankfully, Ogura's retirement didn't last and she was soon back, under a ...

The former AKB48 idol Satomi Kaneko officially retired last year and we thought it was the last we would see of her. How wrong we are. Today comes the happy news that Satomi Kaneko is to make her porn debut with the Muteki label -- which specializes in such industry crossover debuts -- and under the name Kiho Kanematsu (金松季歩). It is common, often for contractual reasons, for idols to change their professional name when transition into porn, or even just when switching management agencies. Kaneko/Kanematsu announced her new professional name about a week ago, along with a new shoot ...

We've written before about Aya Takanashi and her columns providing her insights on Japanese porn. As a former AV performer herself from 2016 to 2018, she is in the know about such things. Her latest column for Spa! deals with the question of why so many underground idols (chika aidoru) are seemingly making the switch to porn? It's true that porn retails sites like Fanza do seem chocker-block with chika idols of late. One example is Ichigo Nekomiya (pictured), who is meant to be a member of an Akihabara underground idol group and is making her debut (4HMN487) this month on the Honnaka ...
