Ex-SKE48 member Kito Momona Set to Make Her Porn Debut

Kito Momona was a member of SKE48  from 2009 – 2014. During this time, she was wrapped up in a scandal when she caught kissing NEWS’ Tegoshi Yuya. She’ll be doing a lot more than kissing now. “Friday” is reporting that she is now entering the world of adult videos. Her nom de porn is Mikami Yua. Her first video is titled “Princess Peach.” Porn production company MUTEKI will release it on June 1. The 3 hour long video sees Momona/Yua performing a variety of sexual acts, culminating in a threesome. This makes her the 5th person in the 48 Family to debut in porn.

When she graduated from SKE48, Momona said that she enjoyed her time as an idol. She said that she would miss her old groupmates, but that she wanted to try new things in life. Is this part of that plan?

      It’s her choice, no shame, etc. I’m just curious how this will further the perception that the 48 Family just turns out future pornstars.

      Also, I haven’t exactly kept up with this, but who are the other four that did porn post-grad? I remember that one girl many years ago who was the first to do it and it caused a mild uproar, but I don’t know about any others after that.

        One of the girls that did porn is married and has a baby now, I believe she was the first to do it. I think her name was rina nakanishi. I assume there was not much work out there for someone who wasn’t a relevant member or maybe she truly wanted to do this.

          Not that I actually know. But I heard it pays pretty ok and you aren’t so tightly bonded to a contract. You can do 1 movie and that be it. But it’s weird thing that I hope doesn’t get adopted as a niche industry trend. Graduating from a idol group you were in from your teens doesn’t need to be solidified by doing considered “adult” work. Not to say that is the mentality behind these moves, but it’s hard not to look at it like that.

          It’s almost like the next best thing to actually becoming a solo act or actress. It in fact can always lead back to being a solo act or actress if you get popular enough. She already has the controversy. This isn’t a stupid PR move really.

            What’s wrong with being a porn star?

            • mewmew

              What’s right?
              The answers to both of our questions is probably “nothing”.

            • Alexdhamp

              Notice how it’s only wrong for women to go into porn? It’s fine if a man wants to, though… :/

        • Microcat

          Rinatin wasn’t an irrelevant member though, she was senbatsu during her entire AKB career and one of the original frontgirls of Team A.

          ETA: I thought she would become a singer since she had a great voice and seemed to love singing, but I guess that path was more difficult to pursue than becoming a JAV actress

      • Muu

        There are four others, the most recent being an HKT graduate.

      • P.A.

        Sadly, most of SKE48 fans already hate her so…

      • sumomona

        nakanishi rina, takamatsu eri, narusa risa, narita risa(?)

        • Gabrielle Valérie de Bellefeui

          iirc Narita Risa played the role of a porn star in a biopic about said pornstar, so it wasn’t exactly porn but very risque acting

      • ExileQuestions

        I think its a good look for the group.

      • Marina

        actually, the truth is they (some of them, not all) can do AV movies, because they already do this thing in their private life, accepting indecent proposals (having sex for money) with rich businessmen, politicians etc. It’s just some of them are willing to come out and earn more, because in AV, the price of contract is generally higher than private sex payment (of course because you are being videod. And then some of them (some celebrity prostitutes) just want to stay silent and remain in the “black market” of celebrity prostitution. Sad but true, but it’s really about the money. SOme people will have it, in any way they can, the easier bigger money, the better.

      • INSPIRITBABYV

        I think one of the main reason is that they are so used to the fame and glory they received when they were within the group. 48 Family is the biggest idol girl group in terms of popularity in Japan so back then, they receive a lot of attention. And since they can’t get that attention anymore, they resort to anything to be “famous” again. Also, maybe the fact that they never receive of education when they were young (due to group activities) also contribute to them not being able to live comfortably after they graduate so they are left with few choices in life.

        • Roen

          To be honest, out of all 300+ girls currently in the 48Group, maybe 5 to 10 of them are “famous” and easily recognizable by the general public. In this case, Kito Momona was a member who was never chosen for Senbatsu, never ranked in an Election, and never became famous or even popular within her group. With the exception of maybe Nakanishi Rina, who was prominent during AKB48’s early days but graduated long before they hit their stride, all of the graduates who’ve gone on to do porn weren’t terribly successful as idols. I think it’s more likely that they see it as a paycheck or a natural progression from gravure more than a way to recapture their glory days.

          • risane

            @Roen, Very good comment and logic. You make sense at all. Actually she is not a member of SKE48, this is just a claiim or a gimmick from porn industries. Search the members of SKE48 on Google so would know that she isn’t there. She is not a member at all.but there are pictorials of her with other member of the group like Siera Sato, but if you look at the official list of the members of SKE48 in Google, she is not included. Maybe porn industries intended to make such pictorials of her and other members or claimed to be members of SKE48 to make it look like she’s one of the group. A marketing strategy indeed, a connivance.

            • Jasmine

              Lmao she was a member, google doesn’t list every SKE member but if you look on Stage48 which does have all the members she’s there, she was in Team E.

            • Gabrielle Valérie de Bellefeui

              She was most definitely a member of SKE48. She was my favorite member and I was really sad when she left.

      • Risane

        LOL actually she is not a member of SKE48, this is just a claiim or a gimmick from porn industries. Search the members of SKE48 so would know that she isn’t there.She is not a member at all.

    • I saw the back of the video, LOL.

    • rina

      Saw this coming a mile away…

    • Bloodforge

      Considering there are so many members it really isn’t surprising to see some go into AV. 5 still isn’t that big of a number.

      • Alexdhamp

        Yeah. Five out of 300+ isn’t significant. Hell, out of probability, alone, it was bound to happen.

    • Seekaii

      I wonder why she just doesn’t use her real name.

      • Alexdhamp

        Porn stars never use their real name.

    • Diana’s MovieReviews

      That’s just horrible. So, those girls don’t see ANY other choice than being a porn star?? Unbelievable.

      • mewmew

        I know, right? It makes happy to see them go off to do other things besides this. It makes me think “Oh, so there IS more to AKB (SKE) than this”. And then someone goes off and remind me that there probably isn’t. I’m not judging her or anything, but it’s a bit of a let down. I have to remind myself that it’s her life, body, and health, so fuck it (no pun intended).

        • Diana’s MovieReviews

          True.. It seems like her pride is not important to her as long as she can stay in this business. Why doesn’t she go back to school? Where are her parents and why isn’t anybody telling her not to do THIS? I just don’t get it.

          • camonegics

            why not? she’s an adult and is getting paid for filming this. It is bad that many ex-idols are considered “old” and abandoned by their fanbase after graduating, but it’s not her fault.

            • True, it’s a big contrast when a K-pop girl group disband and they are still regarded as legend in South Korea.

            • Alexdhamp

              Funny how this is only a “shame” when it’s females that go into porn. Why aren’t men degraded when they go into porn, too? Sexist double standards…gotta love ’em.

          • Seekaii

            Well lbr it’s not like the porn industry is all that glamorous so it’s not like she’s on easy street with this job, but i see what you mean. It’s kind of like why didn’t she choose something else but whatever I guess.

            • Diana’s MovieReviews

              Oh no no, I didn’t mean “glamorous” or anything like that. What I meant with “she can stay in this business” is that she gonna be present in the media (in a bad way). That’s extremely sad.

          • mewmew

            Yeah, that requires brainpower and time. Who would do this if it wasn’t for the big/quick bucks? I’d be too worried about STD’s. I not too long ago found out about an 11 year old whose parents convinced her to join. It’s sick. She needs a childhood. No one should ever be exploited, especially not someone her age. All who are in AKB are and no one seems to give a damn.

          • allenvanhellen

            A person can have many goals and disciplines and pursue them in their free time. A job isn’t the only place and time to develop oneself, is it? :) She will have a lot of free time by working much fewer hours but still making good money. It seems her pride is only endangered by those who for some reason enjoy shaming others (for doing something pleasurable and natural).

      • WorldGN18

        Worst thing is that there are people here that consider prostitution and porn are regular jobs

    • premonitions

      that part at the end was completely unnecessary, it reads as ‘haha lol look at the former idol becoming a porn star, isn’t that hilarious’. actually, the entire article reads as holier than thou. give over, AV stars in Japan are huge, and if she wants to then don’t judge her for it.

      also why does this site have a ‘porn’ tag.

      • I don’t get what at all. And it has a porn tag because she’s doing porn…

        • ʕ→ᴥ←ʔ

          Don’t play dumb, there was obviously another meaning to her question

      • lllllllllllllllllllllllll

        While I never find it amusing to ridicule someone who has fallen from grace, I don’t see the last sentence in this article as a slur or something. It may have been initially intended as a sort of humor, but the question seems legitimate. Did she really want to do it or did she just go with the flow? There is a difference, you know. Remember Minako Komukai? She didn’t receive offers to do AV but she submitted an application to Alice Japan, meaning she intended to have an AV career because she applied for it. On the other hand, Nakanishi Rina plan to have a solo singing career, but she was approached by AV producers to do AV and the rest as we know is history. Let me reiterate, she was approached and she accepted the offer, it’s not like she applied and got hired.

        I am guessing the same thing happened to this Kito Momona girl. She carries the former 48 girl tag, so AV producers will definitely approach her and offer her with hefty contracts. In other words, just like Nakanishi Rina, she simply did AV because the opportunity presented itself. This might not be part of her plan and she was just tempted to do it because the alluring contracts are being shoved to her face (much like how JE and 48 groups are being shoved to our faces). What if she never received offers, would she go through the trouble of submitting an application to an AV studio?

        As a fan, I understand that you are blinded by your fanaticism, which makes you sensitive to such comments. But it doesn’t hurt to be open-minded.

        • premonitions

          I don’t think we read the same article, and I think you may have misunderstood my point. It’s not a matter of being a fan of the group (I’m not), and the girl could be putting out an AV every day and I would be fine with it as long as she’s happy safe within her job.

          It’s a matter of the way this article was written because there was a lot of unnecessary comments made by the OP. Was it necessary to make a joke about her doing a lot more than kissing? No. Was it necessary for a description of the AV? No. And I made this comment after seeing OP loling in the comments section because he’d seen the back of the box.

          The article was tasteless, and it was mocking Kito and mocking the women who choose to become AV actresses, especially if they happen to be former idols because everyone on this site knows that arama can’t help but take a dig at idols.

          And you yourself were incredibly patronising, don’t talk to people like that, thanks.

          • lllllllllllllllllllllllll

            Alright, so the OP went a bit overboard with the comment about the part where she is going to do more than kissing since we all know what AV is supposed to be, so a graphic description is really not needed. But still, the question of whether she planned to do AV after graduating is not a complete mockery in my opinion. It was a question of whether she planned it all along or decided to do it on a whim. Though the way her graduation message was placed before the question doesn’t help. If she really plan on doing it then good on her for achieving her dream. But if this is a decision she made because she was tempted to, then I think she is actually making a fool out of those AV aspirants whose ambition is to enter the AV industry from the beginning. If she is half-hearted in this decision then in the long run she will regret it and her AV career will be short-lived, much like most of her predecessors (with the exception of Aisaka Haruna who is so far having a steady career).

            • premonitions

              I’m not here to discuss her life or her career choices. I’m here to critique this post and the degrading tone of it. OP is pretty vocal about not being a fan of idols, and I sincerely doubt he had an actual interest in her career moves. You’re not going to convince me that it was anything less than unnecessary.

      This is the only way people would know she was once in SKE.
