    Girls can do normal porn if they want to. There might be some story bits and random events where things get more interesting, but I can't say anything for sure yet.

    You mean like actual JAVs or just gravure videos? Try contacting lewdgamer if you have the chance whenever your game is nearing completion. They're usually happy enough to interview anyone so long as the game ahs some lewd elements.

    Both. You basically get "business proposals" from time to time for stuff like gravures, ads, movie roles, JAV, etc, and they all have different pitfalls.
    For example, if a girl starts promoting a product and then gets into a scandal, you'll have to pay a fine.
    You can get a lot of money for your first JAV, but after that they devalue a lot, etc

    And yeah I love lewdgamer!

    Dude, I don't think a girl can still work as an idol after doing JAV.

    I was basically going to say this! For a game that strives for realism (well, I'm assuming it at least kind of does), this is not realistic.

    There was a group of AV idols, Ebisu Muscats, so it's super realistic m8s.

    There are different audiences in the game, so you can go all the way from producing your own Perfume to something very niche

    You guys are wrong.


    Also, what the Wikipedia page fails to mention is there is now a second iteration of this group with a different roster of JAV actresses.

    Edit:
    Damn it, sniped!

    But surely one group is the exception rather than the rule!

    Does that change the fact that it can and has been successfully done?

    The audience that is looking for pure and innocent maidens to live out their girlfriend fantasies with won't be into such a group, but there are plenty of other demographics too.

    They are AV actresses that became idols, not idols that went to JAV.

    If one of the girls from AKB48 or Nogizaka46 did JAV, I doubt they would still remain in the group.

    That's part of the fun though, imagining what would happen if AKB suddenly released a management approved porn, or if Momoclo released 8 singles in one month, all titled "Hitler did nothing wrong". I'm trying to script reactions to as many situations as possible, so there's always a response to whatever bullshit you'll try to pull

    Well, you'd obviously have to market the group as less-than-pure from the start for this to work.

    I'm not against having the girls doing JAV in the game, but I think it should be a endgame for the girl career. If one of the girls from AKB48 suddenly did JAV, I'm sure the fans would freaking rampage and you would lose credibility as a producer (since you're pretty much whoring your girls).

    Like... you would get mad dosh, but would decrease your reputation severely and the girl wouldn't be able to work in the industry anymore.

    Well yeah, I'll need to do a lot of balancing of course, but that's the general idea

    This sounds promising, I'll keep an eye on this.
