“1 in 500 Japanese Women Have Appeared in Porn”

aizawa-hitomi-bikini-bathing-action

As many as 1 in 500 Japanese women have appeared in pornographic movies, it is claimed.

The claim, originally published in a Japanese magazine, is based on the observation that Japan publishes well over 10,000 adult videos annually, from which is derived a population of 100,000 or more women who have at one time performed. Some 9% of these are also thought to be casual rather than professional performers.

The former editor of a gravure rag, with experience of photographing over 400 women, is quoted in support of all this – “I get the impression women really like being photographed nude […] on the surface they may be embarrassed but I never saw one who didn’t like it.”

Accounts from actual performers are more mixed.

Korean media covering the story reports hopeful Koreans commenting that “Japanese culture is really messed up” and “if you ask 100 Japanese women for sex, 1 is bound to agree.” Of course, Koreans are in no position to criticise their neighbours, and in any case it appears a lot more than 1 would agree if asked nicely enough.

Since the group of women appearing in such films changes each year (especially with the maximum career length of a porn star being quite short), the “1 in 500” figure might actually understate matters significantly.

Add to this the widespread suspicion that a large number of Japanese women either work as prostitutes or engage in informal “enjo kousai” prostitution relationships in school, college or otherwise, and it would appear the doubts about the moral character of Japanese women often voiced in neighbouring countries (to say nothing of in Japan) are not entirely without merit.

    1/500 * 100% = 0.2% it is much larger than the effort obtaining a monster Card in Ragnarok [ i.e : 0.01% ] ( 200x )

    Well, yeah. When you put it to % it doesn't sound so impossible anymore.

    I just get the feeling that the asian culture is very sexually active. I mean China has an insane population problem and so does many south-asian nations like the Phillipines, and Japan has an almost glorified outlook of adult modeling and nude modeling and Korea is EASILY the biggest consumer of porn in the world.

    Crazy I tell you. lol

    I completely forgot about how desperate they are to get pregnant and have the next generation these days, so I wouldn't be surprised if all of this was some extensions of the Japanese collective unconscious nearly demanding of its culture that sex be inserted back into its lifestyle... no pun intended.

    Reality does work that way, humans are instinctual just like all the rest of the animals, it just shows up in different societal ways considering our higher consciousness. I'm curious about how we'll evolve as a culture in the coming years in relation to the FACT that teenagers are sexual beings and in many cases MUST have sex as a right of passage.

    In the past it was exploitation by older people (much less than people believe), now its a projection of their increasing maturity at a pace unseen before, with or without growth hormone.

    Either way, I'd very much love to stop hearing the hypocrisy in people denouncing guys for finding teenage bodies attractive... they're designed to be attractive. Literally. Nature did it for breeding purposes, don't blame us because they have perfectly hemispherical asses.

    Watch some of SOD or Karma's movies though.

    A lot of the "amateur series" are the same girls and make their "porn living" being "uncredited amateurs" or just appearing as an extra.

    But Japan has a lot of AV stars that do like 1-4 movies then quit. Really runs up the # with the actress count also.

    Eric Cartman (with shocked look at his computer screen): "Sooo.... Mom.... if you ever appeared in a German scheisse film... you'd tell me about it, wouldn't you?"

    Eric's Mom (lying through her teeth): "Of course, sweetie."

    And people wonder why "cuteness" and "innocence" are such major themes in anime, manga, video games, idols, etc. etc.

    It could be said Japanese woman are almost directly responsible for the rise of moe itself.

    “if you ask 100 Japanese women for sex, 1 is bound to agree.” it would suck if the one that said yes was the 100th one.

    There can never be enough high-quality porn, but there already IS too much trash in the way of the real gems. Either the directors suck or normal porn-viewers have awesomely dull interests.

    20:31

    Wrong. How do you supposedly 'deflower' a 2D-girl? It can only happen in-game, and even then only if the viewer chooses to recreate and realize that condition in their own mind.

    For instance, if they choose to believe that 'Panty is a virgin', then that's the truth. Unless our minds are physically connected and we're able to 'transfer' and 'transrealize' products of imagination... however that would work.

    I'd be curious if they're also considering idol, pink, and gravure videos as they are technically "adult videos". That might be what is inflating the numbers.

    When you guys comment about grannies, do remember that this is "have appeared" in porn. Don't count them out just because they're old NOW, after all, they used to be young too. Point is, there could also be porn featuring them from some number of decades ago.

    I guess you haven't been in the same Japanese adult video stores as me.

    It is difficult to imagine _WHAT_ those 22 of the 500 people would be, but I'm sure if you make a video a new fetish will be awakened.

    "Under 15 idols" Rings any bells? I think I've read somewhere on sankaku that the youngest idol is only 6 years old.

    Yeah... some chars in a videogame are much worse than the stuff japanese make.
