On April 1, the Japan Porn Actors Association (JPAA) will be established in an effort to improve the working conditions within the adult video (AV) industry.

Speaking to Shukan Post (Feb. 7), the group’s founder, veteran actor Genjin Moribayashi, says that actors should be viewed as something more than pieces of meat.

First off, he wants to raise awareness regarding the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. In the United States, porn shoots were halted over such concerns last year.

“We can not think of it as somebody else’s problem,” says the 14-year veteran. “Testing once a month will make for a more reassuring environment for AV actresses and contribute to the development of the industry — that’s our aim.”

Moribayashi, who has starred in more than 4,000 films, expects an enrollment of 50 actors upon the launch of the association, with the majority being upper-end performers in the biz earning more than 30,000 yen per film.

Further, Moribayashi would like the association to be able to accept inquiries from fans or those interested in becoming a fellow stick master.

The association could also serve as a means of disseminating information about intimacy. Moribayashi says that articles about sex appearing in tabloids, including Shukan Post, have an awkward bent considering they cite opinions from medical experts — as opposed to first-hand information from the AV industry’s experienced performers.

“We’ve had sex with thousands of women,” says the actor. “I want people to hear about sex from a pro. In human history, there has not been an occupation dedicated to sex that’s spanned decades. We will be in a position to return our cultivated experience.”

Moribayashi also expects that the association will promote the sale of condoms, sex goods and nutritional supplements. (K.N.)

    being a porn actor does NOT make you a sex expert in the least.
    At the most, it makes you an asshole.

    oh, don’t be so prudish and judgmental. jav actresses have platforms to talk about sex. their views are interesting and no less valid than the “experts” who spout theory. why should male actors’ views be any less “expert” than the theorists?

    Au contrare.They are entertainers, giving them the same credit as a researcher with credentials is silly. They might have sex-credentials, but really, so does most people with kids! “veteran actor Genjin Moribayashi, says that actors should be viewed as something more than pieces of meat.”
    Isn’t that kinda the point of porn though? So it’s all about self-empowerment of women now. Really?
    “Moribayashi, who has starred in more than 4,000 films…””
    You don’t need to star in 4,000 productions to talk about first hand-sex experiences, why not ask normal folks to volunteer instead of feeding the ego of entertainers! Furthermore, I DO want to know more about the experiences of the AV actresses/actors, but I do NOT think this is the right venue.
