Porn star Sora Aoi draws crowds of crazed Chinese men like few others can Sora Aoi

TOKYO —

Pornographic actress and model Sora Aoi is said to be the most famous Japanese person in China. She commands over 11,180,000 followers on China’s Twitter-like microblogging platform Sina Weibo — enough to start a potent revolution if she were so inclined.

If numbers aren’t enough to convince you of Aoi’s influence, a set of photos taken during her recent visit to the capital city of Fujian Province, Fuzhou, should certainly prove that she can draw a crowd of frenzied Chinese men like very few revolutionaries could.

The images were uploaded to Chinese bulletin board site tt.mop and show a throng of male fans with cameras and smartphones rushing to catch “Aoi Sora-Sensei” on camera.

Even the organizer of the event who greeted her on stage couldn’t seem to keep his eyes off Aoi.

Aoi’s big international break came in 2010 when she began connecting with Chinese fans through Twitter and Sina Weibo with the help of translation software. Despite porn being illegal in Mainland China, she quickly found that she had millions of fans in the country who knew of her though the internet or under-the-table DVD sales.

Aoi is now trying to make a career change from porn star to performing artist, having released a music single in 2010 and a short, fully-clothed film earlier this year.

    only in Japan, are porn stars considered legitimate, popular celebrities. In any other country they would be shunned, and too ashamed to come out

    Not quite true. There are a few porn stars in the U.S. that did the "crossover" to respectable things. And I seem to recall in Italy a porn star was elected to their national government. In general, the only reason most of them don't do much beyond porn is because doing other things requires more than moaning and pretending to climax believably. Most of them can't make the transition.

    Nothing like an AV actress to repair the PR damage that crazy grandpa Ishihara did with his anti Chinese remarks. She would probably do a better job running Tokyo government too....bet there would be unprecedented spirit of co-operation from all those lifeless middle aged koomuin types that populate the Tokyo metro govt offices ...:-)

    Pornographic actress is a bit of a misnomer. Most J porn doesn't have any kind of storyline. Just a bloke or 2 doing a woman in a variety of poses and then finishing on her face....

    If you thought every actor in porn was enjoying themselves or whatever, it only shows how good they can act.

    Not really, its not really hard to smile even when your in pain or in discomfort when having sex. That is really all it is isn't?

    And if you any of you out there think you have what it takes to replace her or a popular male counterpart, you are kidding yourselves. And I am not talking about just the physical endowments. Most of you couldn't do it, so some respect and humility are in order.

    Couldn't do what? The real difficulty is in the male actors. Having to maintain an erection, not cumming to soon or cumming on command, etc....

    I don't mind being caught, but I could never go on a set and have sex. I would just die. I do thing porn though is very healthy. Humans do wonderful things, and since we are beautiful animals when in shape, go for it.

    Porn is acting. Its not Shakespeare, but its acting.

    Skill level wise it is the equivalent of elementary school acting. Lets not try and give too much credit to the skill level of porn acting.

    If you thought every actor in porn was enjoying themselves or whatever, it only shows how good they can act.

    Well most of the time the Japanese porn actresses sound like they are in pain and not enjoying it to begin with. Besides as I mentioned in my previous post it really is not hard to smile or moan in when your in pain or discomfort during sex man.

    Imagine what it's like for the guys. Girls can fake a lot when there's a cameraman and sound man watching you two go at it, but the guy can't fake his part of the scene. He's got to still "perform" even with all those strangers watching off-camera. I could never do it.

    Hope she doesnt get into any trouble with the law over there. And that has to be scary with all those fanatics. Those pics of the fans are insane, hope she has enough security. That type of mob would freak out some of the top celebs.

    Side not, I think that it's funny. People are so positive about this (JP porn star taking her talents to a country where her talent is illegal) but an American company like Hooters brings its legal non-pornographic business to japan gets shunned. Most people are so quick to hate anything American many are so quick to blame America for everything.

    Here comes the ugly head of chauvinism @ its finest. Since when YOU get to decide which gender has it better or worse? So the actress just lays in there and takes it, no pain no discomfort, no sweat....just moans and smiles? What? Didn't you know that women are made of flesh not rubber? What makes you think you can penetrate a woman over and over and she will be just fine? Have some respect for the genders and learn to value them equally. It is difficult, tiresome and sometimes even painful/stressful to accomplish such roles. For both genders!!

    The fact you think its just that pretty much proves my point.

    On the woman's side of thing yes it is, sure they might need to control their gag reflex on top of what I said previously. On the male side of thing its much more difficult, you have to be able to maintain an errection, you have to prevent yourself from cumming too soon but not only that but you also have to cum on the directors command. All someone has to do to trick someone on camera that they are enjoying themselves is to fake a smile and fake a moan of pleasure or fake an orgasm. Faking of an orgasm would actually take some skill.

    You haven't proven your point whatsoever because you have not in any detail talked about what is required of the porn stars. If you want to prove your point why don't you tell us what is required of the female actresses and or the male actors in great detail or at least some detail.

    I will have more respect for your opinion when I see your line of porn videos sellling like hotcakes, and people lining up to take your picture, and singing your praises as a porn star.

    I'll have a lot more respect for your opinion when you actually tell us what is required of the porn stars.

    Here comes the ugly head of chauvinism @ its finest. Since when YOU get to decide which gender has it better or worse? So the actress just lays in there and takes it, no pain no discomfort, no sweat....just moans and smiles? What? Didn't you know that women are made of flesh not rubber? What makes you think you can penetrate a woman over and over and she will be just fine?

    What are you talking about? This is what I said:

    Not really, its not really hard to smile even when your in pain or in discomfort when having sex.

    That is me right there saying they are in pain and discomfort, that is me saying when they are in pain and discomfort they can still smile and fake a moan of pleasure. No where did I say they would be "fine".

    Seriously Franchesca Miyara Yang did you even read what I typed?

    No surprise that she's popular. In fact, at one point long ago, a famous prostitute (like Sora, a woman who got paid for having sex) was the leader of the known world after purchasing that right from a Roman Emperor.

    I have some observations of Japan and China. I had a trip to China in 1972 first time and then many times till 2000. I found China is changing like the dynamic mind and passions of Sora Aoi, in any field U name it but not Japan physically as used to 1960-75. So Chinese became second biggest economy of the world after US. During early time Chinese’s blue tunic would not allow to distinguish male and female Chinese in 85% to my big eyes. But change started to appear from 1985 in a phenomenon way like in Gita it is said that the fruit of UR Karma U shall reap that is true with Chinese as well. They eat good food, income is relatively good, no baggers, their tongues are very tasty so they eat every kind of the food worth eating while Japanese eat with their eyes with fantastic display. Most of Chinese look towards to East rising sun, if they have many fans of Sora Aoi; it is not surprising for me! But Chinese are as hot or hotter passionate as during the time of Kublai Khan! No doubt in my mind.

    She looks like every other girl. Nothing spectacular. And if she does the typical, boring J-porn, then there is nothing new there either. I have no idea why this girl is popular in China. What she has big boobs? So? I don't see that much of a big deal to get these guys all excited. Yawn.

    @bookowls, a slut that gets paid! TBH though while porn stars are great ways for young teens and men to get their first real look at how babies are made, the women are not always so proud of their past/present, get pressured into doing porn, or get "addicted" to it. First they do it for the money (which i have to admit is usually pretty good if you're smart with it.), but they always grow older and won't be in work for much longer. Plus (if you're male too) it may make it extremely difficult for any potential future long-term/permanent relationships you may have if you have had a history of screwing as many men/women for the camera. It definitely reflects on their personality. If you decide you want a position at some legitimate company and the hiring manager just may have seen one of your films, he/she may ask for some illegal activities and blackmail you so you can get certain positions.

    One thing I'd like to ask some porn stars is if they have a boyfriend/girlfriend/hubby/wife that they've been with for over 5 years. Bet you most of them will say that the relationship didn't last.
