Japanese ‘oldest porn queen’ retires at 80  

Maori Tezuka, who made her debut in Japan’s flourishing “silver porn” industry at 71, and who has been in the Japanese porn movie industry almost a decade, has finally thrown in the towel.

The former opera singer,  who joined the porn industry partly because of  lack of red-blooded Lotharios able to keep up with her, retired at 80.

The actress who said she doesn’t regret being a porn star, told the local media;

“Once the lights go on, you just do your best.

“I have no regrets, but shooting became difficult when the actor wasn’t my
type.It was never about the money for me. I’ve already been asked about returning in two or three years — I said I’d think about it.”

Elderly porn or Geronto porn is big business in Japan where around 34 million people — or a quarter of the population — are over 65.

AFP reports that Japan’s porn industry rakes in about $20 billion a year, with movies featuring rambunctious geriatrics accounting for around a quarter of that market.

In recent years sales have soared as more of the country’s perky seniors celebrate their mojo.

The genre took off thanks largely to the exploits of Shigeo Tokuda, an 82-year-old actor who has appeared in hundreds of blue movies with titles such as “Forbidden Elderly Care” and “Manic Training of Lolitas”.
