Tomoko Nakajima becomes porn video director

35 Comments

Tomoko Nakajima, former one half of the comedy duo Othello, will contribute to a women's adult site, "Girl's CH," as a porn video director.

Nakajima, 42, made the announcement on Monday. Wearing a tight mini-skirt, Nakajima appeared at a press conference and said: "My back is the most sensitive part of my body. I ask my boyfriend to play with my back until I get satisfied," according to Sports Nippon.

Nakajima added that she likes to be creative when giving pleasure. Her first porn video, titled "Hachigatsu no Umi," will be released on Sept 2.

Nakajima is slowly returning to show business after a bizarre last two years when she was reportedly under the control of a mystic woman who moved into her apartment and ran her life.

Nakajima started having financial troubles in April 2011 when she took time off from her regular TBS Saturday morning variety program “Shittoko!” due to “health reasons.” Then TV stations in Osaka and Tokyo dropped her from their variety programs, and her weight ballooned.

Tabloids said her mind was being controlled by a mystic woman who moved into the apartment, isolating her from her family, friends and business contacts.

After living in Japan for over 14 years, I have many, odd and bizarre things, even highly questionable. 14 years ago this kind of story would shocked the bejeezus out of me, but now it's like...Oh, whatever. In Japan, this works. Unthinkable in America. The main thing is, the woman has a right to make a living, especially after being sacked liked that. She's not hurting anyone, so why not? More power to her.

So her return to show business is as a porn director... Lol

the last time I saw her on TV (news) she was fat. Any type of skirt would have been tight.

What is your definition of Fat?

Nice move. Definitely more lucrative than being a comedian.

In any case, she may take a side street to being a porn director, but she could later go straight and return to regular show business. Several porn stars have done so (like Iijima Ai). Show business people love it because they know their fans will follow them where ever they go.

Looking at the photo in the link above, she actually looks really good.

I really wonder what makes her qualified to be a porn director, but suppose it is not that hard....

You are joking?! Seriously? What makes a person qualified to be a porn director. We are talking about porn here. I had NO idea you needed a Harvard Law degree to apply, but then again, what do I know

One wonders if this mystic woman was programming her for porn all along.

I often think I'm surrounded by mystic women trying to convince me to be a porn star.

And this is newsworthy?

I think the first porn movie she will direct will be "Mind Controlling mini Skirts" or " They came from the West" etc

I wonder if those comments about her back being "sensitive" were even solicited. What a weird press conference. What a weird story.

She probably has a knack for cheesy music and the ability to imagine a man and a woman meeting at a tennis court or broken down vehicle, having a drink afterwards and then shooting for the bedroom. Of course the guy needs to keep his socks on during the deed.

What makes a person qualified to be a porn director.

Management skills. Organization. Knowledge of lighting and filming. Leadership.

She went off the rails after giving her life over to some "mystic". Her former comedic partner just had a baby and lives a couple minutes away from me. Porn is probably as good a way as any for her to back in the black.

Let's hand you a film crew, actors/actresses and studio to see what kind of product you can make and whether it will be distributed. A hidden camera on your dresser doesn't count.

Go Knocker-jima!

She'll so well, no doubt.

Makes a change from being IN a porn film I suppose.

The surprise in this story is the word "director". Washed up female celebs that no-one wants anymore often get flushed down the porn pipe to eventual ignominity. After coming out of that weird living situation and trying to get back into show-business, but failing, I was wondering if she would end up going that route. In a weekly scandal rag a week or two ago, there she was in negligee, and bared boobs doing one of those photo shoots.

I hope she's a good director, but I don't know if this is what she really wants. The whole "backside" thing was weird and unrealistic, too. Who knows, tho, maybe true...

She got her MBAV. That's not so easy. For that you make a research on the field (in your bedroom) during a couple of years investigating possibilities, then you write a dissertation (on your blog) and you present it to a jury of experts (at a press conf).

but suppose it is not that hard....

You think that's easy to get an article on JT to promote your first movie that nobody has even seen ?

Will her new film be titled: "A day in Nipporn"?

All the pieces of the puzzle are beginning to come together on her two year absence.

what is it with washed out celebs in Japan, going to porn to stay in the limelight or a cash grab, or a bit of both!?

So you don't know who she is then.

Have to agree.

Director CUM Actress pleeeeeeeeease!!!

I am watching you!!!

One would hope that with a female director Japanese porn will come to look a little bit more like actual sex and less like pseudo-rape or whatever it is. No wonder Japanese women prefer foreigners if local guys get their moves from that freak show.

Beside her management skill, her computer skill is no match of others in industry. She is very educated in USA. Beside Japanese and English, she is good with Spanish.

I took a class on Human Sexuality. I understand just how fake a lot of porn films are. I appreciate a good actress or actor/ director.
