Porns to be consumed

It was a big surprise when i did this calculation. The number of porn videos that has been produced in a year multiplied by 3000 Yen, the price of the video. The answer of it is vast amount of money. Porn industry is regarded as excellent business enterprise in Japan where money is above everything else. Porn video (sexuality) is not a culture, probably now it's right to consider it as a products which to be consumed.

Approximately 15,000 porn videos were produced last year, in other words, about 42 titles were made everyday. There is at least one porn actress in each film. We don't have official statistics to count how many porn actresses exist but this numbers tells us enough that there are so many porn actresses in Japan now. So why those girls became porn star? According to a survey, 1. money, 2. curiosity towards sexuality or headline-seeker 3. To be more beautiful 4. In comparison with prostitution, no worries about sexual disease, 5. Aiming to be a star, to enter show business industry. Indeed, some porn actresses I've met told me that they couldn't say NO (couldn't express their will) when they were scouted then stepped into porn world. Also they told me that they know quite a few porn actress who entered porn world for the same reason. Since it's appearance in 1980s, Japanese porn culture has been famous in all over the world. Now the word "AV" (adult video=porn video) or "Bukkake" industry jargon that means many people souse semen over girl's face are official language in the world. However, not many people can list up which porn actresses have been flourished now, maybe only porn freaks can.. Yet, this industry has been systematized and created a huge consumer culture while we hadn't been notice. If you can't to deny 1-5 reasons above it's so easy to be involved in the wheel.
