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


Planning Model

Planning Idol
Pay: 20,000 to 100,000 yen per performance (1-3 days).
Info: Models who are more than amateurs, but not full-fledged AV stars fall into this category. Those who start as amateurs and stick around while becoming more popular can receive even more opportunities and a higher pay to match. This is a great place to be since your pay can keep on rising provided you stick around and keep on accepting job offers. The types of performances you will be in are not much different than regular AV star work; in fact sometimes they're the same. From being a planning idol, it's very possible to become a famous AV star.


Planning Model Merits:
Since many big AV stars are signed to exclusive contacts, the amount of work they can do a month is already set. However, planning models are much more free with taking on jobs and thus can work a lot more and potentially make even more money. Planning models also don't necessarily have to have their faces advertised in a big way like full-fledged AV stars do so the chances of being caught are much lower.

Planning Model Demerits:
Since there are no limits to the amount of work you can do, there is a chance you can find yourself mentally and physically drained. Thus it's best not to pack your schedule with too many performances and ensure you are getting sufficient rest.


Examples: Saya Takazawa and Tsubaki Katou



Amateur Model

AV Amateur Planning
Pay: 10,000 to 50,000 yen per performance (1-2 days).
Info: The sky's the limit for amateurs in planning titles. There are a multitude of roles one can select from. A common gig for women working as amateurs in planning movies are background nurses and schoolgirls. Basically the type of roles given are the type that are not absolutely necessary for the production to be filmed. Acting ability is not needed so please have no worries about delivering a potentially 'dull' performance. Each job doesn't last as long so there is very little reason to feel nervous. You'll be in and out very quickly compared to AV stars.


AV Amateur in Magazines
Pay: approximately 10,000 yen (1 day)
Info: Various types of photo-shots such as being felt up on the street and exposing your panties are common here. This is a great way for amateurs to enter the industry. What you do here will most likely be sold in recessed corners of small book shops safely wrapped away in opaque vinyl coverings.


Amateur Model Merits:
First and foremost, it's very hard to be caught. The amount of work you can do is something you can decide for yourself. If you're busy with school, want to spend more time with your boyfriend, need more overall rest from your non-AV, this is the ideal type of adult video job for you. What's more, we don't require an appearance contract from you for this line of work. You may come and go as you please. We'll still welcome you with open arms even if you only want to work just a single day to test the waters. If this describes you, then please contact us right away.

Amateur Model Demerits:
The pay. Yes, compared to other jobs outlined above, the pay can be a lot less. However, compared to non-adult jobs, there's no easier and more relaxing way to make money. Everything here is totally up to you and work is plentiful so long as you want it.
