I don't think the rise of costhots is going to influence gravure in any way. People still look down on these girls in Japan and still don't give a shit/pay patreonbux on them in the West. Mind sharing your thought process, OP?>>68528
I think it belongs more on /ot/ but should be kept here, personally. Too much potential to go to shit in there and not totally out of place here

Agreed, especially things like pic related. It's just so pleasing, even though it's obviously sexual. To me,it makes the model seem like more of a person than just a sex model. The pictures tend to focus on a lot more than just t&a too which makes me feel like it works for females as well. It almost makes me wonder why it's popular in Japan, I know in the west, most men are interested in full on nudity or very overtly sexual situations, rather than just a slightly sexual display of the female form.
Sorry for the blog post btw.

Adding to this, I feel like pic related is kind of what you were saying about the everyday look. This picture is sexual, but everything else about it is super comfy.

Some gravure girls worked at soaplands from a young age, and when they turn 18 they get offered gravure contracts. Then after the gravure contract is over they can charge insane fees.
Others try to use gravure to supplement their income while studying or use it as a springboard to something else.
>>100536>'Some gravure girls worked at soaplands from a young age'
so basically softcore prostitution as an underage kid>that photo
Please tell me it's some weak pedo bait.
It's disgusting either way though.
There ARE gravure material with models who are 18 and under. Soaplands are not the only places where they can be "employed". Remember, sometimes gravure is used as a talent outlet for younger models going into entertainment. Sometimes its for crusty white women like applemilk1988 who want popularity points. Either way it exists.>>68530
while gravure is basically the same thing, costhots don't have the natural sex appeal nor innocence that is shown in Japanese gravure modeling. They are inexperienced, self employed models versus women who are hired by an agency and trained to perform a certain way.

I went to look her up, sure enough she was working at soaplands from at least 16. She was a gravure model for a short time, then a porn star, then left the industry and joined one of the most exclusive escort agencies in japan. Now she looks to be getting back into promotional and gravure again.
This is over the course of 15 years.
