Full Covers Monthly Gallery

Here is a list of full covers galleries for each month from the day the new site opened.

They are useful for those who want to save time and not have to click 100+ thumbnails to see a large cover.

The catalog number can be found when you hover over the images in the gallery.

Then you can just search for them on the home page.

Be sure to try with and without the dash in the catalog number.

Old previews and actress info is still available

June 19th 2024 @ 11:30pm: I’ve added back ALL the picture gallery links for the GOKKUN genre. Over 500 previews are back!

June 19th 2024 @ 11pm: I’ve added a Gallery Links CSV file for collectors. It will give links to the OLD picture preview gallery pages.

Only less than 20% of them are on the new site so far.

Since there is 6,000+ of them it would be impossible to manually add them all back quickly.

If you use Notepad++ (it’s free) to view the file you can double click the links to see the picture previews in a browser.

You can use CTRL+F in Notepad and Notepad++ to search. Make sure to try it without the dash first (-) then with.

 

When we moved to our new site in November 2023 we had to automatically add all products to the new site. There was no way to transfer actress names, reviews and screenshots. This is because we had been using HTML5 only and there was no database.

We actually added all the products to the new site based on catalog numbers taken from JPG images! This is why many titles are listed without the dash (-) in the catalog number.

If you need to see previews for these old titles you can do any of the following:

  1. Visit the OLD SITE. It’s an info only site and the search and cart functions are disabled.
  2. You can guess the name of a preview. Type https://www.japansm.com/old-site/gallery/ into your browser and just added the catalog number at the end without the dash (can try with it too).
  3. Download the CSV file above if you’re on a desktop PC. In Notepad++ you can just double click the links to go right to the preview.

Example for #2: https://www.japansm.com/old-site/gallery/mvsd067/

PLEASE NOTE: Titles added after 2022 usually got JPG previews and not the bloated full gallery HTML previews.

EVERY title from the old site is on the new one.

Want to buy a DVD listed on the old site? Just search for it on the new site as follows:

Enter the catalog number WITHOUT and WITH the dash.

If MVSD067 doesn’t work, try MVSD-067.

We’ve got a shiny new web server!

We upgraded our web server! Things should be mostly the same or maybe even faster than before! It’s all new and the transfer went very very smoothly. Now it uses OpenLiteSpeed web server software, which is supposed to be very fast. Plus it uses LitespeedCache too. I still managed to retain that nice Google Pagespeed score of 10/10 for both mobile and desktop users! It’s quite tricky to get that score! I was stuck at 81/100 until I disabled Javascript deferral. Strangely the only nerve-raking part of a server transfer is making sure you got those TLS/SSL security certificates installed properly. These days it’s so easy!

I know many of you are disappointed in me, but i’m trying everything I can to make this site better and better and to get orders out super fast. This has always been a one person operation and it’s incredibly difficult at times to do the job of 10 people! This year i’ve felt like a failure because of not being to handle the work load properly at times.

I’ve been saying this over and over lately, but this year has been BY FAR the most challenging year yet since I’ve been running the site.

Giving the site a new web server is one thing I thought might help keep the site going for years. I want it to happen, but there are so many areas that need improvement. I am so motivated right now in fixing all the problems i’ve had this year. I love what I do so much and want to keep doing it for years!

#1 priority is order processing speed. Nothing else matters as much.

I’ve still got my plan in place to make this happen. It’s getting there.

I do think people are still interested in physical DVDs. I have no doubt about this. I just need to make sure they get those DVDs lightning fast. It’s going to happen.

PS there are a few preview gallery links that are down. I will upload those ASAP.

If you’ve still got an open order, please don’t panic/worry, I am spending 99% of my time on them.

Thank You!

May 2024 updates

May 22nd 2024 – Blurry thumbnails fixed!!

I noticed a big problem with the site! All the thumbnail images (small box covers) were blurry! I didn’t notice this because I need new glasses and it’s hard for me to actually see them up close. It’s FIXED and they should look great now.

The issue was that they were set to a width of 400 pixels, but my theme was stretching them out from 300 pixels! Oops.

I’ve regenerated all the thumbnails.

The software i’m using for the site is still faily new to me and i’m still learning!

BTW I’m not  sure if people know this, but no credit card numbers are ever stored on our web server.

Even when you select “Save to Account”.

There is actually no need to save your card details or even make an account.

Doing that just saves you time at check-out.

I’m going on 4 days now with no sales. It’s a bit frustrating, but I am working hard to try to recover.

 

May 20th 2024:

Added thumbnail previews for 236 DVDs added in May. You can download a zip archive of May 2024 covers and previews.

It’s only suggested for collectors on a desktop PC. Right click the link and select “Save Link As”.

 

Here is a log of new additions for May. Nearly all of them were released in Japan in May.

None of them are older additions. Lots of variety as usual.

If you don’t see enough Lesbian titles for one update, please understand that they might have not released many in Japan in May (yet). That is our most popular genre most of the time.

UPDATE LOG:

Round 7 – May 21st: 28 DVDs

Round 6 – May 19th: 54 DVDs

Round 5 – May 15th: 80 DVDs

Round 4 – May 13th: 31 DVDs

Round 3 – May 10th: 71 DVDs

Round 2 – May 6th: 60 DVDs

Round 1 – May 1st: 129 DVDs

TIPS: DVDs added in the past 30 days will have a “New” icon on the box cover.
You can sort DVDs by most recent or most popular (based on sales).

If you are a collector and need actress information, previews and reviews for older titles you can visit our Archive Site.

It’s an INFO ONLY site and no longer functions (search and cart down for it).

It wasn’t possible to copy over all the information immediately. It would have taken thousands of hours.

Eventually it will be done.

Everything on that site is available on the new site! That site has titles added before November 16th. It’s no longer updated.

You can order ANY DVD listed on the old site, but you have to do it on the new one.

TIP: If you can’t find a DVD from the old site on the current site, trying searching for it without the dash (-).

For example: DDM004 instead of DDM-004.

When we added the products to the new site we had to import them all without a dash.

Again, if you’re currently waiting for an order, PLEASE don’t worry!

I am doing everything possible to get them all out ASAP.

I’ve faced some incredible hardships in keeping the site going in the past few months.

I am working as hard as I can. This is a one person business.

Thank You!!

Site Status

We’ve had a temporary issue where when registering for an account it would not send an email to setup a password.

This is now fixed! Now you can create an account with a password without clicking an email link first.

An account is NEVER required to order.

Why create an account? It allows you to save time at check-out. Your mailing address will be filled out automatically!

If you have an open order, we are working as hard as possible to get them out ASAP.

Complete marathon sessions daily. Please don’t worry, I guarantee 1000% you’ll get it.

Thank You!

BTW one important thing about accounts on our website worth mentioning. We NEVER and will never store any credit card details on the web server.

Any card details are submitted securely with encryption to our payment gateway for approval.

April 2024 Round 4 update is here!

106 new JAV DVDs just added to the site!

I’ve been on a roll adding tons of titles to the site. I bet you didn’t know that this is already the 4th routh of updates and it’s only the 10th!

Most of these came out very recently in Japan. Lots of variety in this update. Even some Lesbian titles, even the rare Bukkake new additions. As you may know, they don’t make those as much in Japan these days.

Here are some tips to navigate the site:

  1. Click “Home” to see titles in EVERY genre. Previously you could click “Japan Video World”.
  2. Click “Latest Updates” to see what we’ve added for each month. Or you can just click your favorite genre.
  3. On the genre page you can sort by most recent titles or what is the most popular (goes by sales).
  4. Want to see titles with your favorite actress? Be sure to click her “tag”. It allows you to see more of their DVDs.
  5. If you want to see more previews for titles added before OCTOBER 2023 you can visit our old site.
  6. Want to buy a title you’ve found on the old site? Search for it here, you may need to remove the dash (-) to find it.
  7. 100% of ALL titles on the old site are available here. NOTHING has been removed!
  8. We had to import all the old data and could not simply transfer over all the previews and actress info.
  9. If anyone didn’t know, “All Sex” is our General or Main area. Most titles will go there.
  10. If a DVD was added in the past 30 days it will now display a “NEW” label on the top right of the box cover.

I also found some technical issues that could have caused a few problems for people trying to order.

If you experienced that, please try it again!

Fingers crossed that was the issue, but maybe not.

It involved accidentally “caching” the check-out and cart contents pages. That’s FIXED.

I am hopeful I can continue the site for years. It’s going to happen!

I just need this update to be a huge success.

I am working so hard. Harder than ever before! It’s 3am and i’m still at it!

I have some huge plans for this site. I love my job so much and want to keep doing this as my full (and only) job.

I also want to assure everyone that if you have an open order, it’s 1000% going out and  ASAP. Don’t worry!

I’m working day and night.

Thank You!!

April 2024 Round 4 update is here! Read More »

About Japan Video World

As early as 1998 I had discovered a thing on accident called Japanese Bukkake. I had come across some before and after photos on usenet newsgroups taken from the actual videos. They were photos from the Bukkake Carnival series I believe.

I was intrigued by these and had found out they were produced by an early bukkake studio called Shuttle Japan. I just had to have some for myself!

Back then internet video didn’t really exist that much and nobody had DVD players. I had located a guy online and he had offered to sell me some VHS tapes of them. The first ones I picked out were M’s Video Group (MVG) MS-01 Fuji No Jin and Shuttle Japan BU-04 Bukkake Summit.

Let’s just say that those are rather extreme and not good for those new to bukkake (now called Gokkun). I clearly remember the effect it had on me when I first watched them. They made my stomach feel a little funny!

Around 2002 I was frustrated with it being so hard to find the videos I wanted. Usually the best ones were $100 each or sold in one specific shop. From what i’ve read online, MVG videos were once only sold in one shop in Japan.

To fix this problem I created this website to make it easier and cheaper for customers in the USA to buy Japanese Bukkake Videos!

At the time I had no clue how to design a website and started learning! The first website was only 1 page and written entirely in Notepad!

Best of all, it was on a donated Packard Bell Pentium 120mhz computer with dial-up internet that rebooted itself every 15 minutes! Fun times.

I eventually kept adding more and more videos. Even offering some Bondage titles for variety.

The site was a success and a lot of people were ordering. This allowed me to upgrade to a better computer and offer DVDs.

Around 2003 or so the DVD format became popular and I switched to that format.

I still remember a lot of my older customers complaining about the new DVD format and still preferring VHS tapes. It makes sense.

The very first DVDs we added were Waap’s GAD-004 and GAD-006. Both amazing movies and are both must see videos.

I then made it a goal to post reviews and make screenshots for every single new Bukkake title I added to the site.

I eventually added hundreds of reviews and screenshots and I believe this is a huge reason why my site became such a success back then.

When cell phones arrived, the reviews became slightly less popular. It could be that I was just too long winded and it was hard to read them.

All those reviews on one page made it hard for some customers to order. We eventually switched to a “Covers View” listing on our site and moved the reviews to the picture gallery instead.

In total I believe there were several thousand reviews posted!

I reviewed each and every DVD myself and took screenshots manually. One at a time! Hard to believe. I still remember updates taking a full day easily. Reviewing bukkake movies sounds fun, but not for 12 hours in a row.

At one point there was a massive loss of interest in Bukkake videos. It could be due to several reasons. I think it could just be due to less releases coming out in Japan.

To keep the site going we eventually started offering DVDs in many different genres. Bukkake had no become less of a focus for the site.

In October of 2023 we had some major shopping cart issues and our provider refused to help in any way (1shoppingcart). Claiming the issue did not exist for them.

Due to this we had to basically start over from scratch with a new shopping cart. Luckily we could import all the images and catalog numbers.

All actress names would be need to be entered in manually. Doing that for 15,000 titles would take probably months.

Considering we had 15,000 products and no database with actress information, this was a massive project for just one person to tackle!

Believe it or not until late 2023 we used Dreamweaver 8 with HTML5 and CSS for our site. Doing updates manually using that method is a really time consuming process! Our layout was also a table based design.

We now are using a CMS or Content Management System. This will allow us to do much faster updates and more easily allow us to change or add information. The nicest thing is that now I don’t need to worry about too many DVDs listed on one page.

Due to switching to the new software, it’s a major challenge keeping the site running. I am going to work as hard as possible to keep the site going for as many years as possible. I just hope that sales can recover back to how they were on the old site.

I do understand that some customers prefer the old site. I tried my best to make the new one as similar to the old one as possible.

Sometimes it’s just hard to believe i’ve been doing this all solo since 2002! Time sure flies.

I think the hardest time we ever had running the site was during the recession. Not something I want to remember. Luckily we were able to stay positive and get past all that. We had to move into a small apartment, but things had eventually recovered.

What has kept us going over the years so much is our loyal customers. Without them it would have not been possible.

Thank You!

Round 3 of the December 2023 updates is here.

I added another 97 total DVDs. All of them were released in the past week in Japan.

Lots of variety and I hope it’s a huge success!

Round 2 was also added a few days ago too.

To see the latest updates, click “Dec 2023 (Round 3)” under “Latest Updates” on the menu.

I also added a faster way to see the full box covers. Just click the Quickview option.

I also realized the mobile menu was down! Oops. I’m not sure how long that happened, but it’s fixed!

I accidentally had it set to not be displayed.

I also made a lot of improvements to make the site as fast as possible!

It’s a lot harder to do this when using a CMS (Content Management System).

In addition to this I also am now listing the “Date Added” for every new DVD.

It’s only listed in the full product page though.

PS one strange thing i’ve noticed about the site (100% not a complaint!) is that ZERO titles in the Big Tits section have sold since the new site opened! Very strange.

My only idea is maybe some people don’t realize the menu option is clickable. The sub-category is for Lactation videos.
