Skip to comments.Cultural Exchange: A (male) porn star at 76
Posted on 03/05/2011 9:23:01 AM PST by llevrok
Reporting from Tokyo At the seemingly fragile age of 76, his story is the stuff of Hollywood legend (Well, maybe the seamier side of the San Fernando Valley), a tale made more outlandish because it happened to a buttoned-down salary man in hyper-conservative Japan.
For years, a Tokyo grandfather kept a dirty little secret from his family. Longtime travel agent Shigeo Tokuda, who resembles countless older men who ride the Tokyo subway each day, admitted to his wife and daughter that he sometimes performed cameos in small-budget films.
But what this senior citizen didn't say was that those scenes, often staged in would-be retirement homes, involved getting naked with actresses young enough to be his granddaughter. Since he was "discovered" in 1996, Tokuda has emerged as a major player in Japan's emerging adult movie genre known as "elder porn." He says he has appeared in more than 350 films such as "Prohibited Nursing" and "Maniac Training of Lolitas." In these scripts, Tokuda always gets the girl.
(snip) . "It's not that I'm proud, but it feels nice to be useful," he says. "My wife is glad that at my age I've still got someplace to go."

Japan is hyper-conservative???
They’re into some weird stuff in japan
"I'll guess,...starring Hugh Dragitall"
Yes, they’re hyper-conservative about many things, but not all things. When it comes to sex and even bodily functions, they’re very strange.
Dishonorable sister movies.
I read about him in a Cracked article a while back.
This would only work in a society where pixelation is the law.
Ahh. Isn’t it heartwarming. The legitimization of the whoring industry.
Its good to know that Bill Clinton will still have a shot at fame and stealing the scene in years to come LOL!!!
Seriously, she's glad he has "someplace to go"? I'm not sure that my reaction to learning my husband had been banging girls younger than our daughter would be happy he wasn't just hanging around the house.
“Recently, Tokuda sat down at the offices of an adult film company to discuss life as one of Japan’s most veteran porn stars. Dressed in a blazer and casual shirt, he’s a slight man about 5-foot-3, 140 pounds who wears dentures and has a small but meandering Mikhail Gorbachev-type scar atop his balding head.”
An elderly man walks into a confessional. The following conversation ensues:
Man: ‘I am 92 years old, have a wonderful wife of 70 years, many children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Yesterday, I picked up two college girls, hitch-hiking. We went to a motel, where I had sex with each of them three times.’
Priest: ‘Are you sorry for your sins?’
Man: ‘What sins?’
Priest: ‘What kind of a Catholic are you?’
Man: ‘I’m Jewish’
Priest: ‘Why are you telling me all this?’
Man: ‘I’m 92 years old. I’m telling everybody!’
Your comment reminded me of Charlie Sheen thinking he is a rock star because he has “professionals” to sleep with, when all of us know he’s such a putz he has to PAY someone to do it. When he is totally broke someone is going to actually tell all about little charlie...
Understatement of the day! The various social repressions/supressions from old Japan have resulted in extremely bizarre subcultures in modern Japan.
