Original AV: Japan’s ‘made to order’ porn project allows you to be the star

Shukan Post Oct. 11
Japan’s domestic adult video (AV) industry is highly prolific. Including amateur videos and Internet downloads, the market releases 35,000 titles each year, or about 100 per day.

The number of genres — ranging from incest to the Lolita fetish — is numerous. Yet, notes Shukan Post (Oct. 11), particular interests or tastes of individual viewers are not necessarily reflected. That is, until now.

Earlier this year, AV talent agency Bambi Promotion launched the project “Original AV,” which offers viewers the chance to submit their own scripts and choose the actress to be the star under the moniker: “From a simple fetish to a full-blown AV production.”

“For a while now, I’ve been hearing people say that they want their ‘own original’ AV film,” says the director of Bambi Promotion. “So, since we are a casting agency with the necessary know-how in the AV business, we decided to start this project in March. The response has been tremendous.”

Not surprisingly, the majority of the requests come from male viewers seeking to perform with a popular actress currently on the Bambi Promotion roster.

Submitted scripts have included requests for demented deeds that a typical wife will not perform. “Let’s say he’s in the company of a huge-breasted gal,” says the director, laying out a possible setting. “With a hand-held camera, he’ll film the action as she wraps his manhood in her cleavage.”

On the other hand…

“There have been cases of guys wanting to see a professional actor banging his girlfriend,” says the director. “Or a guy will want his wife to be an AV actress. It really sounds like there is a desire for guys to see their significant others with other men.”

Fees begin at 200,000 yen. Scriptwriters may specify anything and everything, including camera angles, locations scenarios, costumes and the color and type of underwear. As to the actresses, availability and cost may be subject to fluctuation.

Shukan Post assures that the quality of the final product will rival that of DVDs on the market, right down to the application of the infamous mosaic — which obscures parts of images that would otherwise reveal genitalia.

Upon completion, customers will be presented with a single DVD and the option of viewing the production on a smartphone or other device.

Since the launch, orders have flooded in to Bambi Promotion from China, Korea, Taiwan and Australia.

“The high quality inherent in Japanese AV is famous overseas,” says the director, “and this is just the beginning.” (K.N.)
