Japanese porn industry hit by shortage of men. 70 men to 10,000 women

Japanese $20billion porn industry is under threat as their men have
refused to participate. According to reports, there are about 70 male
actors to 10,000 women. 

For
a man carrying a nation’s libido on his shoulders, Japanese “porn king
Shimiken” looks as fresh as a daisy. The 35-year-old cult hero,
described by one director as the Cristiano Ronaldo of sex and famed for
his Herculean powers between the sheets, grins as he tells AFP, “It’s a
hard job, but somebody’s got to do it.”

Shimiken
– real name Ken Shimizu – has slept with more than 8,000 women for his
7,500 movies, and recently caused a stir by begging for reinforcements,
tweeting that there were more Bengali tigers alive than male porn
actors in Japan. “There are about 70 male actors to 10,000 women,” he
said. 


Shimiken’s call to
arms was retweeted thousands of times by fans worried about Japan’s $20
billion adult video industry coming under threat. “It is boring for
viewers to watch the same actors all the time. That’s the biggest
worry,” he added.

Shimiken insisted he has the staying power to keep on going,
despite making an eye-popping two to three films in an average day.
“Usually I sleep with two or three girls a day, so I have sex for about
two hours every day,” he chirped. “It’s my dream job — I’ve been doing
this for 17 years and I never get bored of it. It beats working in an
office. I’ll do this until I’m 100.”

He may have to, if the decline in male actors continues. Many
industry insiders blame the conundrum on a growing social trend known
as herbivore men: Those who shun sex and traditional masculine values
in favour of a quiet, uncompetitive lifestyle. “Mentally, men have
become weaker,” said actress Yuko Shiraki. “They’re less macho, less
proactive about sex.”

Celebrated director Tohjiro agrees Japanese men are going soft.
“I’ve been in this business for 27 years and you can see the increase
in herbivore males,” he said. “Men aren’t hungry anymore. They’ve lost
their desire. Everything’s on a plate for them. It wasn’t like that for
my generation. If we got a banana or a pineapple, we went crazy with
joy. These days, men don’t get excited by anything. The same applies to
sex and attitude towards women and relationships. They just click on
the internet for it.”
