Koh Masaki on His Private Life and How He Came to Work in the Porn Industry
Apart from the six DJs headlining this Songkran’s Gcircuit party, we’re particularly looking forward to go-go dancer, Koh Masaki. With DJs Sky and Tomo acting as our translators, we speak to the Japanese porn star who set the internet on fire after his perfect physique starred in Ayumi Hamasaki’s latest music video.
UPDATE: Koh Masaki was reported dead on May 18, 2013, from peritonitis. #RIP
How did you start shooting adult videos?
My friend, a manager of an adult film company, called me. I was managing female models in a model agency at the time.
How many films have you done?
Too many to count.
Is your family okay with this career?
Are you gay?
Have you ever had a crush on another actor?
What’s your limit when working as a porn star?
I quit sex without a condom in May last year. I have other limits, but I won’t say them here.
Do you ever think about retirement?
Sorry, I won’t answer that, because I don’t want to be bound by my answer. It will just happen.
But what will you do next?
I have no plan. I am just doing what I have to do right now.
Do you feel Japan is open to gay men?
I think that the gay scene in Japan is not so open as in Thailand. But sure, it is more progressive than other countries in Asia.
What’s your personal fetish?
What’s your sexiest body part?
Boxers, bikinis, briefs or thongs?
Boxers from DUGAS only.
Remember your first kiss and first love?
No. Wait. Yes, I was eight years old.
You participated in Ayumi Hamasaki’s music video recently. People said it was the first male kiss scene in Japanese music.
Yes, it was my first time in a music video. It was exciting for me! I suppose it was the first time in Japan for something like this.
Do you have boyfriend?
Yes, Sky, who is also a go-go boy. He is smart and has always understood my job from the very beginning.
Koh Masaki in ten years?
I think that I will remain happy and surrounded by my closest friends.
