Watching over 50 years old performing porn gives young people enough to stop wanting the sex. No wonder Japanese birth rate is falling.

I do not get it, no matter how old I get I would still want to see a nice 25 year old, not someone my age.. Maybe they watch for humor?

The worst thing about sex is finding out your parents still do it.

“I have no regrets, but shooting became difficult when the actor wasn’t my type,” added Tezuka

Reckon most 'older' male actors could say the same about 'shooting'. Slightly different meaning though.

Shigeo Tokuda, an 82-year-old actor... has appeared in hundreds of blue movies with titles such as... “Manic Training of Lolitas”.

Now read that again slowly...

is a Porn superstar a job something to be proud of?

If only all Japanese women had the zest for sex that she does, especially after getting married.

Is it really a $20 billion a year industry? That's roughly $200 per adult per year. Let's assume that the vast majority is bought by men, so $400 per year per man. I find that hard to believe.

I don't buy any of this stuff; is anyone here prepared to confess to spending anything like $400 per year on it?

Totally gay gokai can also affirm it is the same in the gay world. There is a whole genre of porn for young guys who like grandfather figures (老け専). In the magazines, there are advertisements for porn models over 65, and "should be a little chubby". Opps, maybe I said too much...

Well, not much one can say, really, except that given the woman (and others like her) have no regrets and have benefitted from it, and there is a market, then all the power to her. Certainly not my cup of tea, but again, so long as they're not being forced into it one way or another, and people are 'satisfied' with the product, so be it. Congrats, I guess, and I hope you find happiness in whatever else you may choose to do.

Last year, I was surfing through the channels after my wife and kids went to bed. One of the porn channels had a free trial for the day so I decided to give it a look. The show that was on was about a guy walking around town chatting up senior ladies working in their garden. After a little chat, she invited him in and they did the deed for 15 minutes.

This show went on for about 3-4 hours and made for good background noise while I was probably typing on this website. I didn't find it gross at all and was more amazed than anything that these women were doing this especially with a younger guy working them fast. Hey, we are all getting older here too and do you find yourself or wife gross for having sex still?

.....rambunctious geriatrics....

What a lovely term; given that I've clocked up my three score and ten I'm wondering whether to include myself in that group.

I'm finding it hard to get my head around this: a former opera singer becomes an elderly porn star... At what point would someone think: "hmm... think I'll make porn videos." Most odd.

In the US there's a 90+ stripper earning more money than the younger curvy ones.

I think it is pretty believable. $400 per year would mean a little more than $33 per month, which means a little less than 4,000 yen a month or a price of ONE new DVD/Bluray. Obviously, if someone is really into adult movies, one title per month wouldn't be enough...

At your age, your type should be anyone willing to have sex with the lights on

It was never about the money for me

Cry BS, and let slip the dogs of porn

When it comes right down to it, she's just a really old prostitute

$400 per year would mean a little more than $33 per month, which means a little less than 4,000 yen a month

But that isn't just the occasional fan, but every man in the country spending 4000 JPY on porn every month. Considering that very few do, I find this unbelievable.

I believe that the internet had plenty of free sites in the style of YouTube to distribute this kind of material, although I am not sure if Japan has any domestic sites of a similar nature.

Not that I would know much about this topic at all, of course.

Not just a Japanese phenomenon. As a look at any of the online porn sites will show.

It's an upward trend so to speak.....

Japan’s porn industry rakes in about $20 billion a year

When I was in Tokyo Japanese men were shopping for porn like Westerners shop for steak BUT from what I understand China is a big consumer of Japanese porn, with the Philippines and Taiwan leading contenders also.

You're doing a surreal math! Of course not every man in Japan buy porn. But the ones who do spend money with porn, probably spend much more than 4000 JPY a month, be it with DVD/Bluray or online paid streaming.

Despite of the fact that free porn is ubiquitous in internet, porn is one of the best ways to make some money running a web site.

Someone is buying those 1000 yen cards at the hotels, and my guess is it's not to view standard movies.

I think japantoday is mistaken in presuming the senior porn caters to and is consumed primarily by the elderly. :P

The numbers still seem implausibly high to me.

The numbers likely aren't only sales in Japan. Japanese porn is popular world-wide.
