Japanese AV Then And Now | Chapter 4: Juice Men of Bukkake Part 2

English Translation Published: December 5th, 2014

The early portion of the last decade saw introduction and extreme popularity of Japanese bukkake AV and with it, the introduction of juice men.

(Translator's note: This post is a continuation of a previous entry.)
 

Juice Men Become Professional AV Actors
The era leading up the bukkake boom saw men with a love of AV but no way to really appreciate it except for self-pleasure. For a short time they finally had a chance to take their hobby and turn it into a vivid experience like no other. This golden age of bukkake was between 2001 and 2003 and otherwise it was unheard of for weekends in big Tokyo studios to be jam-packed with productions enlisting the talents of juice men in such numbers—almost all at the same time. Single men during these halcyon days could earn pocket change doing something they truly love almost every weekend.

It was during these shoots that directors and other staff members started to take notice of certain amateur juice men who had something about them—be it looks, their performance, or both--that would make for a good AV actor. Directors are picky and this was a dream that came true for only a small percentage of these adult video hopefuls. From my years of covering Japanese AV, I can count on one hand the amount of bukkake juice men who actually became full-fledged and successful actors. However, there are production companies and studios beyond count so I surely have missed many.

 

The Know-How of Bukkake AV

Nowadays, the call for juice men is no longer done via promotion on a production company's website, but is handed over to temp agencies and managers who can assemble well-qualified applicants at a moment's notice. This makes it easy for a production company to ensure filming goes smoothly. All that needs to be done now is have to have a lowly AD call up the juice men manager and tell them they need a certain number of actors at a certain location on a certain day. The manager knows his stock well so issues rarely arise.

I know a few of these managers which made it easy for me to still get on set and take some pictures, but I haven't been invited to be an actual juice man for quite some time now...

Anyway, I think with the streamlining of recruitment, we'll see even better bukkake productions from here on out. The boom of the early portion of last decade went hand-in-hand with the emergence of indies Japanese AV companies and with it, they learned the ropes as to how to masterfully craft some wonderful aggressive productions. This becomes very apparent when seeing some of the great new bukkake movies of recent years like the one Kanako Iioka stars in and the 94th (!) volume of Dream Shower with Tsumobi. If it wasn't for the initial bukkake boom, we'd not have high quality titles today that have learned from the ups and downs of the past.

To put it into geological terms, bukkake's emergence on the Japanese AV scene was one of the factors that cracked the earth's crust right under the supremacy of the old-school major studios. The era of regular hardcore productions featuring cute, young women being stripped and then bedded had a volte-face by the extremity of what came after via the shock-waves indies makers emitted with their burgeoning library of wild AV titles.

(Translator's note: Bukkake was at the forefront of the weird Japanese porn boom that first gained notoriety well over a decade ago. It certainly is unique considering it's less about sex, but self-pleasure taken to an extreme conclusion. Since juice men are so numerous, becoming one isn't that hard and it could serve as an 'in' into becoming a real AV actor though don't bet the farm on it.)
