Explosion into Japanese AV via Date Clubs and Handjobs Second Half

English Translation Published: August 22nd, 2014

The true story of a Japanese office lady fed up with her day job and deciding via the well timed call of a street scout to switch to a career in AV.

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

 

B-ko was scouted for Japanese AV work when she was 24 (she is now 33 (Translator's note: this is based off the Japanese publication date, not the My Dearest Desire translation date)). The timing was golden; frustration stemming from her job was nearing fever pitch and the jump to working as an AV star was a done deal. It wasn't that she didn't enjoy sex, rather, she found watching the behind-the-scenes hustle and bustle of a Japanese AV set to be very interesting.

However, not all of it was fun and games. She found herself starring in bukkake productions where juice men sometimes three dozen strong emptied their seed all over her. There even were times when this was done outside in public areas like a shopping arcade. It was not the best experience for her and she certainly did not enjoy the crusty feeling of drying semen. Then again, some AV shoots in studios were too much by-the-numbers for her liking.

Why was B-ko doing Japanese AV? She didn't love sex enough to make it her chosen profession and was not in debt. As to what she was doing with all her hard-earned AV money, B-ko replied with a bombshell: “I'm supporting a man.” Supporting an adult can cost a lot—in upwards of 3 million yen (approximately $30,000USD) and possibly more for those striving to maintain a gaudy lifestyle. For B-ko, her beau was a creative freelancer as this was a natural progression of her burgeoning interest in behind the scenes AV work.

After several years of appearing in adult videos, B-ko switched professions within the industry to that of a date club. Men join date clubs in order to be introduced to women. Clubs of various calibers exist and most make their fare via the 'introduction fees' charged to their male clients. Some of the high-end ones such as the one she worked at had a client base that included many celebrities (Translator's note: celebrities actually mean celebrities and not just Japanese ones. I used to know someone who worked in a club like this and she had proof of being 'introduced' to some very famous American rock stars who shall rename unnamed.). Through this arrangement, B-ko was paid very well and took on a sugar daddy or two.

'I never realized there was this other world full of high-rolling celebrities!” boasted B-ko who made the switch from Japanese AV to date clubs. “It's not that I want all the money in the world, but rich people oftentimes have more they know what to with,” she continues.

While also working at a handjob fuuzoku, she came to the conclusion that more money equates to less problems.

How many of you knew about handjob fuuzoku? It was new to me. A handjob fuuzoku consists of simply providing a man a handjob in a private room. That's all. The room itself is as bare-bones as they come. Unlike a love hotel room—even a cheap one—a shower is not present. This brings the price down significantly, but hygiene is a serious issue. The woman providing the handjob does not even strip. She remains clothed and performs hand service, thus cash-strapped men who enjoy CFNM situations flock to this.

With such a low price of 3,000 yen (approximately $30USD), her clients consist mainly of young men—a stark contrast to the clients she sees as the date club. However, this does not mean she is unsatisfied with her handjob fuuzoku gig. Nevertheless, money and her heart work in proportion, but the former weighs more on her wellbeing.

Working simultaneously in Japanese AV, a date club, and a handjob fuuzoku, B-ko has a firm grasp on the Japanese adult industry in all its forms. What's the private life of someone like this? B-ko, at 33 years of age, has been single for 3 years whereas her friends from her hometown and college have already married and started families of their own. They also all have regular, stable jobs. B-ko seems content with continuing working as an upstanding member of the Japanese adult industry. The life of a sex worker was profoundly different than B-ko's initial life path beginning with graduating from a respectable school and landing a proper day job. Even she finds the strange and questionably fateful turn of events that is her life to be rather unexpected.

After the interview finished, B-ko was somewhat distraught at the lack of sexuality in her story: “please contact me if you want to know more about that.” Her personality is stern through and through. Thus, as shown by B-ko, there are Japanese sex workers out there who err on the side of seriousness. Not all are party creatures of the night. Besides, even the most uptight companies—the zaibatsu of Japan—have employees that are anything but proper. Individuality is what being human is all about regardless of one's profession.

(Translator's note: Granted, this interview only covers a sliver of B-ko's life, but the most salient question did not seem to be asked: is she happy? She certainly sounds busy working three adult jobs at the same time, but monetary freedom does not always equal true happiness. Let's wish her the best.)
