Mayura Hoshitsuki or Mayura Hoshizuki ( Japanese: 星月まゆら Hepburn: Hoshitsuki Mayura ) is a former Japanese adult video (AV) actress. After nearly eight years in the adult industry, working mainly with the Dogma studio and director Tohjiro, she announced her retirement in 2010.
Life and career
Hoshitsuki made her AV debut in August 2002 with the Crystal-Eizou company  but her video appearances were rather limited in her early years. Starting in 2004, her career blossomed and the list of DVDs under her name at Amazon numbered 192 in late 2010.  From early in her career, Hoshitsuki has been involved in videos portraying most of the standard genres of Japanese pornography: bukakke, gokkun, public nudity and sex, bondage (BDSM), and cosplay.
Although she made her first video with the Dogma studio and director TOHJIRO in 2004 ( Confinement Chair Trance ),  she did not become a contract actress at Dogma until 2006. Most of her work was done with Dogma which is known for its sometimes bizarre fetish movies, often containing scenes of forced fellatio.  Hoshitsuki has participated in several extreme fetish videos for Dogma. The 2006 video Lolita Sperm Lesbians counts 132 ejaculations while for the 2008 video Vomit Lesbian Drug , director TOHJIRO awarded her and her co-star the "medal of vomit fetishists" and said: "No one can make better puke porn than this."  She also had lactation scenes in two early 2008 titles, Ero Pop Girl and Soft And Dirty - Mayura’s Wank Navigator . In another film ( 10 Year Special Lessons In Secret Technique Men’s Bible Vol. 1 ), she and other Dogma actresses get lessons in the technique of squirting ( shiofuki in Japanese porn) from the expert, actor Taka Kato.  She also participated in a live SM-Night show with other Dogma studio actresses (she is the leader of the group known as director TOHJIRO's M (Masochist) Women) for 200 Dogma fans. 
At the second D-1 Climax Award ceremony in 2006, Hoshitsuki was given the Erotic Cinderella (エロシンデレラ) award for Best Actress, along with Chihiro Hasegawa and Maki Tomoda.  Her 2005 film M Drug - Female Meat Toilet - Mayura Hoshitsuki won the Grand Prize at the first D-1 Climax Awards. Another of her videos Dream School 10 , done with 7 other actresses, was the Moodyz entry in the 2006 AV Open Contest. For her performance in the pink film Newlywed's Sex Education: The Uniform's Bride ( 新婚性教育 制服の花嫁 Shinkonseikyōiku: seifuku no hanayome ) Hoshitsuki was given a Best New Actress award at the 2006 Pink Grand Prix ceremonies.   Additional recognition came to Hoshitsuki for her November 2008 film, Vomit Enema Ecstasy X , which was the Dogma entry in the 2009 AV GrandPrix contest where it won the Digital Sales Award. 
Hoshitsuki did not work for four months in 2006-2007 because she was "recuperating on doctor's orders".  Since then, her video appearances have been limited. She released her first uncensored video - one in which the genitals are not obscured by pixellation as in most Japanese pornography - in March 2008.  In September 2009, Dogma released History of Mayura Hoshitsuki , an 8-hour compilation of episodes from her 19 titles with Dogma plus interviews with Hoshitsuki and director Tohjiro. 
Hoshitsuki is an ardent blogger and her extensive official blog dates back to April 2005 with frank discussions of her life and health problems.  She is an animal lover: snakes, horses, tortoises, dogs and cats, etc., and her blog often has pictures of her pets. 
In March 2010, Hoshitsuki announced her retirement from the AV industry due to health reasons.   Hoshitsuki was one of 8 AV actresses (including Shelly Fujii) who were the subjects of a nonfiction book Hadaka shin? ( 裸心 ) by Yukihiro Kuroba who interviewed the actresses on their early lives and the reasons why they chose a career in adult video. The book ( ISBN 978-4087806106) was published by Shueisha in May 2011.
