Hello

I do have an unusual but sincere question.

I'm a video producer and I'm interested to work in the Japanese porn industry.

I would like to produce porn as a producer as well as a performer.

Somewhere else I read that as a foreigner it is not possible to work in the night club industry.

Is it allowed to work in in the porn industry?

Thank you very much!

Best regards
Ahriman

I would guess much or Japan's porn would be tied to the criminal element such as Yakuza. I picture they would want total control of producing and an actor working with/for them would be like a trained animal expected to obey their commands with little say in anything going on. If you wanted to do something on your own , finding actors probably would involve reading and writing Japanese and being able to pay them well. You would also have to understand Japanese laws regarding what you can legally do or you would have the police to deal with. These are just some of my thoughts & opinions and maybe members here will have different ideas and info on the subject.

True, I read that the most famous japanese actor said, that there are many unpleasant people working in the porn industry.

I also agree, I thought that I might be able to find actors online or get in contact with actors at a set when I'm also an actor. But I would need the help translator anyway.

True, I would have to discuss everything I want to do with a lawyer.

I have to wonder if you will get any/many replies here , LOL. Members might not want to admit they know anything about porn. A large majority of our members do not live in Japan. It's an interesting thread about a topic rarely discussed here. I have a law enforcement background(years ago) , so I look at it from a law enforcement point of view. I'm hoping this thread get some interesting replies and is not too taboo to discuss. Replies need to be kept low key and not too explicit or they will be censored , so anyone replying to this thread , please keep that in mind.

Lots of foreigners work in nightclubs, and there is a huge hostess industry where women from around the world work. It's often illegal, or the person has a general visa which they are able to use for that work.

Are you an attractive woman? Just e-mail a photo of yourself to one of the big studios. Are you an attractive guy who wants to make gay porn? E-mail a photo of yourself to one of the big studios. If you're young and attractive, there will always be lots of people happy to make money off of you.

What do you offer the industry that isn't already being done by tons of people already, who have the language and cultural experience?

What it would take for a foreigner with no language skills to get off an airplane and establish themselves in the porn industry in your home country?

I suppose you could just use your カリスママン powers and film it in some hotel and show it to companies.

I'm 32 years old and male, here is a recent video of mine:

I'm also a yoga teacher, so I could be teaching yoga in English as well in Japan.

I also have some money saved, so I can easily live in Japan for 3 years without having to work. I can use this time to learn the language and culture and maybe even find a girlfriend who wants to do porn with me.

I want to go to Japan because Japanese girls have always been the most attractive to me and out of reading and watching a lot about the Japanese culture I think that I would like most of the culture. The only thing I would really have a problem with is the long working hours, but I guess in porn and yoga this might be different.

Another thing I might not like is that the partner often times doesn't say what he thinks, if something is wrong. Is this also a problem for you?

Good question, here is an article of the most famous Japanese porn actor who says that there would be only 70 males on 10,000 female porn actor. Besides of that I have a defined body and I also want to get more muscles, but I'm not gonna do gay porn.

The porn actor said that 2015, so things might have changed, I think it's worth a try to go to Japan even if I don't get a job it gives me the chance to learn Japanese and find a Japanese girlfriend.

I'm planning to go to Osaka first cause I heard it would be liberal regarding sex compared to other parts in Japan.

Do you agree?

I'm gonna email the japanese porn studios now a job application (in Japanese) to see what they say. They can tell me if they want me and if it's possible to get a visa for that.
Good luck, and do let us know how it goes! :)

Sorry for the double post, I just wanted to let you know, that my plans changed, mainly because of the entry restrictions cause of covid. I will do something else first. I might report here when I contact the japanese porn studios in some months.
