The new coronavirus disease, COVID-19, has no doubt put a lot of people's lives and careers at risk and hundreds of millions have been directly impacted by the pandemic. This includes a certain Yuko Ogasawara from Japan, who was working as an adult video (AV) actress at the prime age of 84 when she had to stop work because of the pandemic.

The spring chicken told Japanese tabloid Shukan Shincho: “I haven’t been to a shoot since last fall,” even though she has been performing "every year since [she] became 81". With the current pandemic still raging, it would be a challenge for her to quickly return to her work.

Ogasawara has been 'honored' with being 'the world's oldest p*rnstar' in Japanese Adult Video (JAV), whose particular genre of jukojo, or 'mature woman' has been providing her steady work.

“I want to keep working,” she said. “The [production] company tells me that [the downtime is continuing] due to the coronavirus, but I’m prepping my body so I can shoot tomorrow.”

For a woman of her age, performing requires extra intervention. “Calisthenics are indispensable because they require postures that ordinary people do not regularly do,” says Ogasawara, who must stretch her spine when walking.

She Still Remembers Japan From World War II

Ogasawara was born in Yokohama of Kanagawa Prefecture. The woman remembers the days of childhood when she had to move often because of the insurance company where her father worked. And of course, she was around when World War II was raging, and the family had to move to another prefecture of Yamagata to stay safe from the bombing.

“Due to rice shortages, we ate radishes and squash,” she remembered. “We had no bath, so I washed my body in the river where the cows bathed.” She was even accidentally sprayed by an insecticide which turned her hair white.

The p*rnstar still remembers seeing US bombers flying overhead when staying at her evacuation area. “I was thinking, ‘Tokyo could be done.’ Then, while still in Tsuruoka at the age of 10, I heard [Japan Emperor Hirohito] announce on the Jewel Voice Broadcast that the war was over.”

She Wanted to be a P*rnstar Because She 'Lived Without Freedom'

Ogasawara began working for the same insurance company where her father was working after her graduation and even met her first love and husband there. He was playing football at Kyoto University, Japan, and they soon got married and had three children. However, it was living with her husband for 35 years that eventually led to her current line of work.

“He was a tough husband. Over the 35 years until he died at the age of 59, he never once let me go out for a drink. I lived without freedom." However, she said that she still loved her husband, and began to live and drink liberally after he passed at 59 years of age.

Being a P*rnstar Means Being With 'Handsome Young Men'

Although she became an adult performer at 81, Ogasawara's road to p*rn took several detours before finally reaching the destination. At first, she opened a hostess club in Tokyo, Japan after her husband's death when she was 61. Then it was a customer who was a hairstyle and make-up artist who made a particularly interesting suggestion to her.

That customer said: “An employee of a production company for jukujo films once said to me, ‘If you know a good person [to appear as an actress], let me know.” Ogasawara was said to be a good fit for that role, but she was not receptive at first.

But everything changed when she went to where they shot those 'jukujo' movies one day and saw that the potential partners would be "handsome young men". It was after this that she decided to seal the deal. She said to her oldest son: "Isn’t it great to be young?”

Anything Goes is Now Her Philosophy

Yuko Ogasawara made her first foray into JAV in 2016, when she played a housewife who had sex with her husband four times. And since then, she has been in 10 more movies until the pandemic put a halt to her work.

So how does a woman of her age still have that much energy to work in p*rn? She said this was thanks to her tough past: "I have a strong heart because I’ve been through hard times.” Although, “the number of people who lived through the war is getting smaller and smaller,” she told the tabloid.

She will turn 85 this October, and now does whatever she wants with her twilight years. Her philosophy on life is thus: “What happens in life happens — anything goes,” she says, “whether it is the coronavirus or work in the AV industry; they are the same.”

Which is why despite the raging pandemic, which still continues in Japan, Ogasawara is looking forward to when it clears, so she can quickly go back to her favorite job. In the meantime, she continues to do lots of exercises to make sure she is fit when she returns.
