Squeeze play: Ex-baseball reporter now porn actress

Hot on the heels of revelations that an ex-reporter at the Nikkei Shimbun was once a porn actress, now comes news of a former baseball reporter for an evening tabloid who is now toiling away as a starlet herself, reports Nikkan Gendai (Dec. 19).

Acting under the name Kaho Shibuya, the ex-scribe of evening tabloid Tokyo Sports made her debut in the AV industry last month. Her third film, “Mixed Bathing at the Hot Springs,” is scheduled to be released in January.

(Though Gendai does not mention her performing name specifically, a check of the Web site for label Alice Japan reveals the DVD cover of her debut to be the same as that reprinted in the article.)

“If these rumors are true, this will prove to be very difficult,” says a sports reporter. “Her father is a famous doctor.”

After studying English literature at a well-known university, the actress, aged in her 20s, entered Tokyo Sports and eventually became the head of the Pacific League beat. At the time, she was something of a popular item due to her ability to speak English and knockout body.

“Eventually, it was revealed that she had appeared in some fairly extreme erotic videos as a student,” continues the reporter, “and it became difficult for her to stay at the paper.”

She resigned after two years and entered a foreign financial firm. A year later, she quit that position to make her debut in adult films.

Naturally, Gendai’s readership is most concerned with the quality of her videos. According to the paper, her relatively short stature is nicely balanced by a huge, J-cup chest. Further, her unabashed nature during performances — eyes focused on the camera while breathing heavily without hesitation — reveals her to be no rookie.

In one film, she explains that she has had experience with only three men. A person connected to the baseball industry says that is absurd, adding that while at Tokyo Sports she used her English ability and massive chest to appeal to foreign players.

“There were rumors going around that she had a couple of players on a string, and the relationships were not exactly within the bounds of morality,” says the source. “As far as a scandal leaking, I don’t know what will happen. But the news of her debuting in AV is sure to shake the baseball world.”

When reached for comment by Gendai, a representative in the public relations division at rival ToSpo could not confirm whether a former employee of the paper is the same person now performing in porn.

“However, if it is the same person we send her our best regards,” said the representative. (K.N.)
