Japanese Grandpa Retires, Enters Porn Industry

March 17, 2009

A 74 year-old Japanese grandfather has found a new job working in the porn industry - as a male porn star. Shigeo Tokudo is considered the granddaddy of the Japanese porn industry. He has appeared in over 300 adult films and refuses to let his age keep him down.

For many years the retired travel agent kept his naughty profession secret from his wife and family. These days he appears in porn aimed at an older audience. One of his latest films is titled Forbidden Elderly Care. He says, "Elderly people have a lot of time on their hands therefore I think they have bundles of energy to get rid of. I want to encourage them to get rid of it." Tokudo says he takes each day as it comes and expects to keep performing for at least another five years.

It really is never too late for a career change.
