(you can find the video on here). Koh was also a LGBT advocate and personally showed support for a lesbian couple who married at Disneyland saying ‘your wonderful wedding will bring inspiration and hope to many people who still hesitate to take the first step’. Towards the end of his life, Koh had stopped filming bareback scenes (intercourse without a condom), speculation was that he did this to help spread awareness about safe sex and the prevention of STDs.
Interview with Koh Masaki from 2012
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,(Tein Tein) 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.
Here is a link to a subtitled video about Tein Tein and Masaki’s relationship. (filmed during the music video)
Whew!! I felt like I just did an essay! XD I, like so many others, adore Koh. I think part of the reason he was so popular is because he was also a model. If you really think about it, a lot of popular JGV models either were models, or became models. (actual models in the industry, not just a guy who has pictures taken of them!) I think it has a lot do knowing your angles, what positions you look good in, and being able to portray emotion only using body language. Simply being good looking does not a good JGV actor make. Take Cat Life for example. I really think the guy who plays the cat owner is handsome, but…his sex…meh. Lol!
Another thing is that he is versatile. He’s starred in all kinds of films, from romantic sex, to bondage, to being a goggle man, to being a farmer who milks men! I love that he does a little of everything!
He’s also just a master of sex. I mean, you just have to watch him to see it. He commands any scene he is in and is confident in every movement. The way he created chemistry with even the most nervous and novice of scene partners is just incredible. Koh’s ability to control his orgasms is awesome too. There are several scenes where he cums multiple times in a row! So sexy!
In closing, Masaki Koh will be missed by all who knew him. If this is your first encounter with him..you’ve got a LOT of catching up to do!
