Last year, police in Hong Kong cracked down on foreign sex workers, arresting several women including former Japanese porn star Noa Aizawa. It's well known that active and former adult video performers do sex work. It can be especially lucrative to engage in such work outside Japan, particularly other parts of Asia, where JAV is immensely popular. If your career is flagging in Japan or you want a change of pace, you can enjoy a good lifestyle with affluent clients abroad. It seems that situation in Hong Kong is much the same, with media reporting the arrest on September 5 of 11 members of a ...

There are jukujo mature porn stars. And then there's Yuko Ogasawara (小笠原裕子). The 88-year-old is probably the world's oldest porn performer. We found a couple of recently published longish interviews with her on Shueisha Online. The obvious questions to start with are: When and why did she begin performing? Her husband died when she was 59 and she then entered the world of snack bars, working as a "mama" as one bar for seven years from the age of 61. Even after giving that up in 68, it was still several years until she entered the adult video industry. She spent the ...

As we get older, we appreciate the charms and beauty of older women more. But it's far from the case that we ignored jukujo during our own salad days. Far from it, we have long sung the praises of Japanese cougars and MILF on these digital pages, as regular readers will know. A jukujo (roughly, "mature woman") is rather loosely defined, and is often applied liberally to any woman past her "prime" (i.e., her twenties). This is nebulous, of course, and most Japanese women in their thirties would shirk from the label, though various celebrities have embraced it and turned it into their whole ...

Maki Makie (マキエマキ) has been working since the early 1990s as a freelance commercial photographer. Now aged 56, she gained a whole new following when she began taking self-portraits in 2015 and repositioning herself as a "selfie jukujo" (自撮り熟女) model. This fame has had some unexpected consequences, as she revealed in a long interview with Bunshun. Her self-portraits revel in a Showa-era atmosphere. Often shot in sketchy or remote locations (like old, rundown resorts or empty shopping streets), they mix humor with the erotic. She is currently exhibiting her work in ...

It's common enough to read reports about male celebrities dating women a decade or more their junior. What about the ladies? The actress Chiharu Niiyama is now 41. She married a famous baseball coach in 2004, gave birth to a daughter in 2006, and then divorced in 2014. Along with small acting roles, she has continued to maintain a public profile, most recently through social media. Last year, to mark her fortieth birthday and twenty-fifth year as an actor, she did a swimsuit gravure shoot for the first time in two decades. The results were jaw-dropping, as we wrote at the time. No doubt ...

Put the media's obsession with youth to one side. Japanese women, we can attest by direct experience, are still very attractive in their forties. As noted before on this blog, former TV announcer Mariko Seyama has spent years tantalizing us with her body, before finally showing her breasts at the age of 41. After enjoying the shots of her nipples visible through see-through clothing from her photo book, "Milk," released last year, we found more nude pictures from a magazine shoot. Sure, she's shown off her naked butt before, but these are very nice and really flaunt her newly slimmed-down ...

There's that cliche about aging like a fine wine but for some women, it really is true. A model like Nana Eikura, for instance, we can remember from her early career when she was a teenaged model. Cute, for sure, but she is way hotter now that she is a married young mother in her thirties. Taking things (quite) a bit further (chronologically speaking), we have just found out that Narimi Arimori (有森也実) is to release her first photo book in 19 years. At the ripe age of 53, the actor poses in lingerie for her fourth photo book, "prayer," which comes out in Japan on October 22. We ...

Miyuki Komatsu (小松みゆき or 小松美幸) was a star gravure idol in 1990s. She furthered her status by doing hair nude (full-frontal nude) shoots -- this is back during the hair nude boom -- and also made the transition into soft-core porn films and hard-core adult video -- yes, back when it really was just video. She has since continued to do acting in various kinds of roles on TV and in films, though her career started to tail off during the 2000s. But this isn't a sad story about a faded star. Far from it, in many respects. Komatsu has entered a whole new phase in her ...

We've said it before and we'll say it again: it's the older ladies who know how to sex things up. The tarento and actress Chiharu Niiyama (新山千春) has released her first gravure shoots in -- yes, this is quite a gap -- 20 years! Now aged 40, Niiyama last posed two decades ago. Last's do a before-and-after. Here is what she looks like now, featured in a recent issue of weekly magazine FLASH. And here is what she looked like 20 years ago, in 1998. This is her again in the magazine FLASH but in May last year. Now that she is firmly in the jukujo "mature" stage of ...
