All in the family: AV actresses hand job to older generations

Stumble into the typical adult video (AV) store — hey, it happens — and an initial impression may very well be the vastness of the space dedicated to the genre featuring the jukujo, or mature woman.

“Over the past three years, the number of producers making jukujo productions has escalated,” AV writer Takehiko Sawaki tells Shukan Post (Feb. 13). “There are about 30 companies now dedicated solely to producing such films.”

According to the magazine, that popularity is causing a spike in demand for extreme productions, including “all in the family features” in which a woman and her daughter (or grandchild) appear together, with the common case being the older generation following in the younger’s footsteps.

In July of last year, Maya Fujimoto, 53, appeared in a release with her 31-year-old daughter Saya titled “Co-Starring Together: A Real Mother and Daughter.”

“Ever since my childhood days it has been normal to speak about sex with my mother,” says Saya, who made her AV debut at the age of 18. “I introduced all of the guys I dated (to her). I lost my virginity in my third year of middle school, which was the most important thing we ever discussed.”

Maya did not hesitate in lending support to her daughter’s eventual career choice.

“My mother pushed me, saying, ‘In order to not be ashamed, be sure to do your best,'” Saya recalls to Shukan Post.

She is certainly taking those words to heart. The 120-minute DVD starts with Maya attacking the nether region of her daughter with an electric vibrator and concludes in a steamy five-person orgy.

Maya is a two-time divorcee who is now single. She agreed to perform following the urging of the president of her daughter’s agency.

“I love sex,” says Maya. “When I was in my 30s and 40s, I worked at a ‘snack’ hostess club, and I’d often take home some of the customers for a little fun after closing time.”

According to AV writer Sawaki, if one assumes that each of Japan’s 30 companies specializing in jukujo productions typically releases seven features per month, that amounts to more than 2,500 films per year.

“In days past, you heard about AV actresses resigning from the industry after their parents found out about their work,” says Sawaki. “Nowadays, you’ll hear about actresses retiring because their daughters or sons found out.”

The magazine does not mention how many mother-daughter tandems contribute to that figure but recent interest goes back at least to 2011, when Setsuko Harukawa and her daughter Ayano starred in “Surprise! A 65- and 45-Year-Old Parent and Child Make Their AV Debut.”

Upping the generational ante slightly will be 26-year-old AV actress Ayana, who appears with her grandmother in “Yoshino Mizuki: The 76-Year-old Granny in Her AV Debut,” which is scheduled to hit store shelves on February 22.

“From the time my second husband passed away, I had been living alone,” says Yoshino. “Then I started falling apart physically. At the time, I was getting help from Ayana, and I asked about her job.”

At first, the actress was reluctant to divulge her profession.

“I was going to say that I was doing gravure (pin-up) work,” says Ayana, “but I let it slip and wound up confessing the whole thing.”

Yoshino subsequently became envious after speaking with Ayana after she came home from a shoot. Thinking she would feel younger, Yoshino had Ayana speak with the president of her agency about her potential. To her astonishment, he agreed to allow her to appear.

The resulting film has something of a documentary feel to it, says Shukan Post. It begins with Yoshino expressing to the camera her desire to appear in AV.

“I’m in the middle of doing cleaning and the vacuum gets shut off,” says Yoshino in recalling that first scene. “That’s when the talking starts, but because of my nervousness we had to do that shoot 30 times.” (K.N.)
