The previous episode teased us with a preview that looked good. They didn't lie. We reported last week about Rikon Shinai Otoko (The Man Who Doesn’t Divorce), the buzzy new TV drama starring ex-AKB48 idol Mariko Shinoda in a post-divorce comeback role as an adulteress, cheekily riffing on her own marital issues (in which she was accused of an affair). Since it's showing on mainstream Japanese TV, there's no actual nudity -- so don't get too excited if you want to see the 37-year-old in the buff -- but it's pretty explicit for all that, including a doggy sex scene. And that was just the ...

If you want to recover from a scandal and rebuild your career, one tried-and-tested method is to reinvent yourself: take a different kind of acting role, do something more provocative. Previously, female Japanese idols, actors, and models in a career slump have dropped their clothes for sexually explicit roles or have appeared in nude shoots. Angelica Michibata's nude photo book after her scandal is a case in point, as was Maki Goto's after her rumored affair. Former AKB48 idol Mariko Shinoda found herself in a personal and professional pickle when her alleged adultery was exposed in 2022. ...

The gravure model and actress Yuka Someya has reached that ripe thirties jukujo age when every role she gets offered is erotic (previous occupants of this type included Mitsu Dan and Minami Hashimoto). In the first episode of TV drama Are kara Doshita, she plays a woman who is having an affair with a securities company. Someya is playing to type here as a seductive woman who has an affair. It seems the way into someone like that's heart (and panties) is to arrive at her day bearing an expensive gift. This being mainstream TV and not a streamer, there's no actual nudity on display. ...

Busty gravure idol and actress Yuno Ohara has delighted us before with her sexy scenes in TV dramas, such as the late-night show Himitsu o motta shonentachi (The Young Boys with Secrets) earlier in the year and Sweat and Soap last year. Sadly, these being shown on mainstream Japanese TV, there's no actual nudity, just plenty of bust and shots of her in underwear. As wonderful as that is, we hope she one day goes the full hog with a nude scene (basically, you have to go to Netflix if you want to see female celebrities naked). With her scenes in a more recent episode of Himitsu o motta ...

Busty gravure idol Yuno Ohara delighted us last year in the TV drama Sweat and Soap with her erotic scenes that, well, emphasized her mammary assets. The scenes, as hot and steam as they were, stopped short of showing us actual nudity. For that, you basically have to go to Netflix. Yuno Ohara is back in another TV drama, in which she is a seductive force on both viewers and her co-star. In Himitsu o motta shonentachi (The Young Boys with Secrets) (2023), which is showing late on Friday nights on NTV since October 7, she plays the lead, a 19-year-old girl who disappeared three years ...

With the exception of some high-profile series on Netflix, which almost seem to be trying to attract viewers precisely because they are explicit, most Japanese TV dramas have pretty tame sex scenes. Some of the late-night ones, especially if they are shown on a streamer like Abema, can be pretty erotic, but rarely do not show actual nudity. They tease and titillate, then pull back from putting breasts on screen. The TV drama Kusuburi Onna to Sundome Onna on TV Tokyo is a case in point, featuring a sex scene between a married couple that doesn't show any nudity. But it caught our interest ...

Earlier this week, we reported on the latest scandal to hit former Morning Musume member Ai Kago. A more recent member of the idol group is Haruka Kudo, who is 23 now but joined Morning Musume when she was less than 12 and stayed until late 2017. This obviously meant a large chunk of her teens were spent in the group, which is not a normal way to grow up by any means, but she seems to have recovered well and is now forging a career primarily as an actress. A few weeks ago, we eagerly wrote about her scenes in the TV Asahi drama around 1/4 in which she strips down to her bra and touches ...

Former pop singer, Haruka Kudo these days focuses on her acting after leaving Morning Musume in 2017. She joined the long-running idol group as a preteen. The 23-year-old is currently starring in the drama series around 1/4 on TV Asahi and ABC TV. It features a sex scene that has got fans and netizens excited. This being a mainstream Japanese TV show, there's no actual nudity (we have to go to the streamers for that in Japan). But we do get to see Haruka Kudo in her underwear and touching her breasts as she talks to a man online. She shows off some bust, which appears larger than you ...

Back in 2017, fans of gravure idol and actress Rina Aizawa were delighted by her sex scenes in the TV series Scum's Wish, even though they were non-nude. Known for her cute face and slinky body (though not much in the way of breasts and curves, let's be frank), Aizawa is now 31 and her beauty has really matured. In the new TV Asahi series Subscribe Her (aka Subscribe Girlfriend, Sabusuku Kanojo), she does another sex scene. Again, it's sadly non-nude, so let's not get too excited, but fans will love it. Plus it's proof that the right bra can make even the flat-chested appear busty! Rina is ...

Minami Tanaka has continued to cement her status as a sex symbol and actress with a role in Even If You Don't Do It. The Fuji TV drama series contains a sex scene in episode eight that is tame in terms of actual nudity like basically all mainstream TV shows (we have to look to the streamers for the real action), but nonetheless shows the beautiful star engaged in intimate proceedings in her underwear on her bed with a male co-star. The scene is rather dimly lit but fortunately some enterprising netizens have stepped in to brighten up the screen grabs, revealing much more of the ...
