Japan’s Booming Sex Niche: Elder Porn

Filed under: OMGZCUTE,Sex,SeXiNeSS,World News — disciplepete @ 12:02 am

Ok folks, I think I’ve found how I want to spend my golden years. Time:

Besides his glowing complexion, Shigeo Tokuda looks like any other 74-year-old man in Japan. Despite suffering a heart attack three years ago, the lifelong salaryman now feels healthier, and lives happily with his wife and a daughter in downtown Tokyo. He is, of course, more physically active than most retirees, but that’s because he’s kept his part-time job — as a porn star.

Shigeo Tokuda is, in fact, his screen name. He prefers not to disclose his real name because, he insists, his wife and daughter have no idea that he has appeared in about 350 films over the past 14 years…the country has seen a surge in demand for pornography that has turned adult videos into a billion-dollar industry, with “elder porn” one of its fastest-growing genres…

…”People of my age generally have shame, so they are very hesitant to show their private parts,” Tokuda says. “But I am proud of myself doing something they cannot.” Still, he says, laughing, “That doesn’t mean that I can tell them about my old-age pensioner job.”

So this next thing kinda blew my mind…they’re talking about how it’s cheaper to produce porn with “mature” women:

A popular young actress can earn up to $100,000 per film, while a mature actress is paid only $2,000.

100 grand per film?? Damn.
