Porn industry is not the most pleasant place to be

She is one of Japan’s most sought-after porn stars, but many are unaware of the dark side to the world of pornography in Japan. Saki Kozai is one of the first to come forward and expose this industry that deceives and threatens young girls to produce more XXX movies. Saki Kozai told how hard it was for her to get started in the world of the porno industry. She signed a contract thinking she would work as a model and on promotional videos.

On her first day at work, Saki Kozai discovered that they were neither promotional nor a modeling agency. The request was explicit: that I have sex in front of the cameras. Suddenly, she realized that she had fallen into the clutches of forced pornography, like many others. “I couldn’t get my clothes off. All I could do was cry,” recalls Saki Kozai. Refusing, however, was not an option. Production manipulated her to the extreme so she wouldn’t have a possible leak. “There were about 20 people around me, waiting. No woman could say no in such a situation,” said Saki Kozai.

Are we going to live a comercial war?

Following the approval of new tariffs by the US on China, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has indicated that he is optimistic about reaching an agreement with the Asian giant to avoid a trade dispute. Trump’s administration aims to jump-start China’s commitment to reduce the trade deficit by $100 billion with lower tariffs on U.S. automobiles, more semiconductor exports and greater access to China’s financial sector by U.S. companies. South Korea manages to be exempted from steel tariffs in exchange for a quota for its imports into the US. The US Treasury Secretary acknowledged in an interview with Fox News on Sunday that they are holding “productive talks” with China and said he is hopeful of reaching an agreement. Mncuchin’s words come after Trump announced specific tariffs on Chinese products, fines and complaints to the World Trade Organization (WTO) for alleged trade law violations worth $60 billion.

The same day Trump told Mnuchin to propose new investment restrictions to Chinese companies within 60 days to protect strategic US technologies. The US President has publicly acknowledged that the goal is to reduce the trade deficit with China by $100 billion. Following the President’s signing, China responded with the announcement by imposing tariffs of up to US$3 billion (2.4 billion euros) on imports of some US products to compensate for losses caused by China’s steel and aluminium tariffs.
