We usually report on FetiFes after it happens, but this year we wanted to offer a quick preview of the upcoming edition of Japan's largest fetish event. Some of the highlights this year are a pole dancing show, booty-tastic performances by four ladies with lovely butts, a gymnastics show by three porn stars, and a shadow play act by male JAV star Riku Mukai. The upcoming edition of Fetish Festival is the 24th and features booths and attractions over four floors of a building in east Tokyo. We have noticed that the event's English marketing has been seriously ramped up, and we suspect ...

The Japanese porn star Nanami Yokomiya (横宮七海) has died. She was just 21 years old (she would have turned 22 in February next year). Her death was announced on social media over the weekend by her friend, Moratorium Hamada. She made her debut in the industry 2021 and continued to appear regularly in adult video productions. She was best known for Lolita-style (rori-kei) roles. Fanza has 248 releases for her name as of writing, including several yet to come out later this month (presuming these are not canceled).

Famous (or possibly infamous) Japanese entrepreneur Takafumi Horie, aka Horiemon, has weighed in on the issue of adult video censorship. Japanese adult video, despite being possibly the biggest porn industry in the world, is censored: no genitals are shown. This is a strange workaround to avoid prosecution under the obscenity law that was introduced to Japan in the Meiji era. The same policy is used in softcore porn and mainstream cinema, even if the nudity is not in a sex scene. In a Japanese movie, the makers will simply shoot in a way to avoid genitals. If it's a foreign film, they will ...

Tama Toys has already shown us what AI can do to design masturbator toys with the bestselling Artificial Intelligence Vagina onahole series. Now comes the inevitable next step: AI porn. An AI-generated adult video produced by h.m.p. stars a digitally created performer called Ai Kihana (木花あい). The 35-minute video (41AIBV0001) claims to be the world's first such AI porn release. It comes out December 22 on DVD and Blu-ray. We will have to withhold judgment until we view the actual footage, but the Ai Kihana's face is attractive, yet does have that uncanny valley kind of ...

The former gravure idol Shizuha Takimoto (瀧本雫葉) is making her adult video debut. The gorgeous, pale-skinned beauty's first porn production comes out via Prestige's Genesis label on November 24. In addition to the 230-minute release (CTKTGNI-002), the 24-year-old has also just released her first nude photo book in mid-September as a Kindle and on-demand paperback. If we are honest, we never knew who she was, which left us wondering if her gravure career was very obscure or she worked as a gradol under a totally different name. It seems that most of the internet ...

Japanese adult video studio Faleno is to release a porn parody of Colabo, an organization that helps women in need. This has ignited a huge amount of attention this week, but the context requires some explanation for the uninitiated. Colabo runs a shelter for victims of sexual and domestic violence called the Tsubomi Cafe, which is effectively a large pink bus. It can often be found in Kabukicho, which attracts young runaways and desperate women who may be drawn into prostitution or compensated dating. In a very bizarre turn of events, the organization and its activities found themselves ...

The recent edition of Feti Fes in Tokyo was a packed event with the usual wide array of fetishes and subcultures. The festival on September 17 had around 100 booths of both individual exhibitors and groups across five floors, showcasing ero-cosplay, debusen, zentai, and much, much more. Many of the women work as freelance porn stars and ero-cosplayers, though various subculture/fetish circles are also at the venue. Unfortunately, we weren't able to attend in person due to other commitments that day, but fortunately DXBeppin-r.com could and has put together a nice photo report with portraits ...

You might remember Chika Yuki (or Yuuki) (結城ちか) from back in the late 2010s. The formidably busty gravure idol made her debut in 2014 (when she still at school) and enjoyed some initial success, but then left her agency and switched to another name -- Chika Takahashi -- in 2020, followed by yet another name -- Maiha Hinata -- in 2021. All this seemed to suggest her gradol career was in free fall. Despite her obvious talents and assets that made her more than qualified for the job, it's a competitive industry that favors the flavor of the month for cover shoots and big gigs. She ...

Japan's much-publicized, controversial new porn law that passed last year was ostensibly conceived to introduce safeguards against performer coercion. Is it actually doing its job? It's perhaps too early to say, though many major adult video stars were publicly opposed to the legislation. The newly established rules on contracts and paperwork quickly claimed its first victim, when a production firm executive was arrested in December for misleading performers and uploading uncensored material. Concerns, though, were soon raised about the potential loophole in the law regard private and ...
