Granny and Grandpa porn. Not so much my thing.

                                Elder Porn

Look, I’d like to start by apologising. I know that old people have sex. Good on them for it but do we want to know? We do not. Do we want to see it on a DVD? I don’t think so.
But some people do because the booming niche in the Japanese sex industry is “Elder Porn”.

Above, is Shegoeo Tokuda – not his real name because his wife and family don’t know he’s a part-time porn star. He is 74 and works in a respectable day job in downtown Tokyo. His most famous “old-man” series is the alarmingly named, Forbidden Elderly Care which was released in August 2006.
According to Time Magazine this week:

Tokuda is rare among Japanese porn stars in that his name has become a
brand. The Shigeo Tokuda series he’s just completed portray him as a
tactful elderly gentleman who instructs women of different ages in the
erotic arts, and he boasts a body of work far more impressive than most
actors in their prime.

Ryuichi Kadowaki, director of Ruby Inc. which specializes in “mature
women” titles, says that when the company started the genre a few years
ago, the term referred to actresses in their late 20s, and last year it
was expanded to ladies in their 70s. And the company sees the advantage
of the “mature” titles is their enduring appeal: “Adult videos with
young actresses sell well only in the first three months after the
release,” Kadowaki explains. “On the other hand, ‘mature women’ films
enjoy a steady, long-term popularity, which after 10 years or so might
lead to a best-seller.” And then there are the cost savings — a popular
young
actress can earn up to $100,000 per film, while a mature actress is
paid only $2,000. The market for “elder porn” has doubled over the past
decade, according to Kadowaki. “In the view of the
aging society,” he
adds, “I think that in the future we will see a steady increase in
demand.”

This is good news for porn star Jenna Jameson who can move to Japan in about thirty or forty years and resume her career.
