Do you think whether the AV idols would obtain happiness? In Japan, would men marry a woman who appeared in Adult videos or has been acting in?

Why are young girls willing to do that? badly needing money for themselves/for family, just a way of earning a living, or other?

I guess there must be something happened to them, do you think?
I don't know how much courage they need to do that, and whether they know what it means for them. how do they face up to their relatives and friends? As a audience, what we need to do is taking hours for watching. Maybe you would remember nothing after days, how about them? you know, now cloud storage technology would make them remain in people's mind forever.

I'm not the sort of person who likes to teach others what is right or wrong, but I only want to know what influence over the girls it brings is.

I know a girl, called 浜崎真緒, mostly around the age of 20, who have finished near 100 AVs, including various types, involving male actors whose age is between 20 and 60.

For the age of about 20 girl who has experiences of sex, what does love means? Hardly believe she won't form a wrong concept on "love" in her mind.

I know the culture is diverse in defferent countries. Anybody can tell me how would a japenese with normal morals think of the AV idols and AV industry? Is there a difference between japanese men's opinions and women's?

Thanks a lots.

I live in Japan so I will just share a little bit.

1.) Most people do it for money.
2.) The names of AV actresses are all probably fake, so it's not so easy to know who has been in the industry. (I swear Rui Hazuki and Honoka Kuriyama are the same person)
3.) I think there are plenty of lonely men willing to be with them

Yeah, that's right. Many av girls families don't have a clue what they're doing. Many actresses only do av for a year or two and then they just disappear back into normal life, it's the ones doing av for years that probably have problems with living a normal life.

For example av actress Yamaguchi Riko was in the business for a year and did 12 movies or so with Alice Japan and SOD and then quit. Her real name is Nakanishi Rina and she was a member of AKB48 before going into AV. After she quit she got married and had a child and seems to be pretty happy these days.

I talk to one ex-actress on a daily basis that is pregnant, has been married for 5 years and is very happy. So... yea, women DO have normal lives after leaving the JAV industry.

I don't no why anyone would get into the AV industry but they do. Stallone did it, made $200 (guess what? Jackie Chan made a porn movie too!). Some people do it because they have no other place to turn...some just don't seem to give a fuck. I am sure the reasons are numerous. I have known waitresses that quit their job to be titty dancers.....(yeah, that is a step up). Who knows why people do what they do.

The important thing is to remember that just because they have sex with strangers for a living (still sounds like prostitution to me), it doesn't make them any less of a human being than anybody else. They are still made of the same flesh and blood as the rest of us. So their chances for happiness, when they leave the AV industry, are pretty much the same as everyone elses. It would be a folly to think that anyone elses faults are more dire than our own.

I know for a fact not every ex-Av actor or actress ends up with a happy ending. Suicides and drug overdoses aren't uncommon (some are actually well known). But many move on and live normal lives. They have to, the Adult Video industry isn't known for its' pension plans. Sure some go on to make a living as directors or producers in the industry but they are in the minority. For the majority, the AV industry is just a job they are doing until it is time to move on to something else.
