Japanese adult film star offers full marriage ceremony with fans for Y350,000

By Casey Baseel, SoraNews24

Fans of adult films were filled with a bittersweet mixture of emotions earlier this month as Sola Aoi, a mainstay of Japanese pornographic cinema for many years, announced her marriage. On the one hand, Aoi no longer being single will make it harder for some men to fantasize about her, but on the other, her description of her husband as “neither handsome nor rich” also no doubt has some everyday guys thinking that just maybe they too can one day marry the girl of their adult video dreams.

And lo and behold, along comes Asuka Hoshino, who between 2010 and 2014 starred in dozens of adult films, many with such uninhibitedly straightforward titles as "Naive Sex of the Innocent Idol," "Surprising Facial," "Let’s Have Sex After Class!" and "Sex with a Big Man." Hoshino no longer works in the pornography field, but she’s now involved in an enterprise that’s arguably just as startling, as she’s offering fans the chance to participate in a marriage ceremony with her for a fee.


This isn’t some quicky VR event either, but a full-fledged, authentic ceremony planned and provided by wedding coordination company Ambitious. Three weeks before the requested date, the 31-year-old Hoshino and her partner will meet with Ambitious’ employees to plan the ceremony, including picking out and trying on the rental dress and tuxedo the pair will wear.

The ceremony will be held in Tokyo’s fashionable Odaiba neighborhood, and on the big day the pair is asked to arrive early to be dressed in their finery and also have their hairstyling and Hoshino’s makeup done by a professional. They’ll go through a rehearsal, then walk arm in arm down the aisle (Hoshino’s father will not be on hand to give her away), take their positions in front of the altar, and a master of ceremonies will perform the ceremony.

The groom and Hoshino will then exchange rings (provided he’s purchased a pair), he’ll lift Hoshino’s veil, and they’ll have their wedding kiss (cryptically described by Ambitious as being “posed only”). Following the ceremony, a photographer will take pictures of the happy couple, with a half-dozen prints being provided as part of the package, which is priced at 350,000 yen. Rings are not included in this price, and are not required.

However, while the pair will be provided with a commemorative wedding certificate, the union doesn’t appear to be legally binding. As a matter of fact, Hoshino is offering to “marry” three fans as part of the collaboration with Ambitious. Still, this is a rare opportunity to go through an entire wedding ceremony without any lasting repercussions, and interested parties can apply online here through Ambitious’ website.

It's wanton exploitation of the permanently sexually frustrated if you ask me.

Reading the article, I smiled at the ridiculousness.

But thinking about it, some men may live one of their fantasies, and it's cheaper than an actual wedding.

Plus, you don't have to take the annoying wife back home.

Yes, but does it come with a happy ending?

So ... she went from pornography to prostitution?

TIJ...can this place get any stranger?

A: Yes.

Don't be so judgmental: this woman has provided more relief than aspirin. She deserves a medal.

Another sad service aimed at man babies. I guess they can film it and watch it over, and over and over again. Power to her I guess. Sign of the times.

Is full marriage ceremony code for something else? And is the video included? That would certainly be part of any wedding, correct?

Do they get to consummate the marriage afterwards?

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Hmm, I think that probably this will find some takers, but I don't see it becoming a booming industry, as weddings are for women - guys just go along with it.

Who's next?

Will she do group weddings?

Hoshino’s makeup done by a professional.

Will it be a surprise facial?

LOL...I loved my wife an all but this was certainly the case with me.

Going by some of the comments some people seem to have missed the bit where she no longer works in the AV industry...

What this is... this is just weird.

Or she loved him.

I actually contacted the company, but was disappointed to find that I have to pay her, rather than her paying me. They should have made that clearer.

OK, I'm speechless.

Would be the greatest practical joke ever if you have the money to spare.

A married guy could do it and then show his wife the photos. Pretty fast way to precipitate a divorce.

An older single guy from overseas could do then bring back the photos to show his pals at work. Practically worth paying for just for the entertainment value.
