Risa Coda or Lisa Coda ( Japanese : 倖田 梨紗 , Hepburn : Kōda Risa ) , also known as Risa Koda and Risa Kouda (for softcore appearances), is a Japanese model and adult video (AV) actress.

Life and career

AV debut and early career

Coda made her debut in adult videos in May 2005, at the age of 19, with the prominent AV studio h.m.p. She continued making adult videos exclusively with h.m.p for almost two years, releasing about one original movie per month. One of her productions from May 2006, I Ecstatically Pleasured Myself in Front of My Boyfriend , uses the documentary format popular in many Japanese adult videos. The plot focuses on her life as an AV actress and contrasts having sex with her boyfriend in private versus sex with an actor in a video scene. [17] In another h.m.p. video, She Loves Outdoor Sex! , released in February 2007, she leaves the studio for some outdoor locations. [17]

Coda also was part of a controversial venture by h.m.p. to offer adult videos for UMD media, the proprietary disc format used in the Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP). [23] She starred in 5 UMD videos released between September 2005 and April 2006. [3]

Coda received recognition for her work with h.m.p. from both fans and the AV industry. She was nominated for Best Actress at the 2007 Adult Broadcasting Awards for appearances on adult satellite TV in 2006 [17] and she won one of the Best Actress Awards for Excellence at the 2006 AV Actress Grand Prix . [38]

Coda tried to launch a career as a J-pop singer with Sexual Kiss records in late 2006 with a CD single featuring the Eurobeat song "Paradiso" (パラディソ). [23] She used the stage name Lisa and the Maxi CD released on November 29, 2006 also included two other cuts "Baby.It’s all" and "Eternity".

SOD and retirement

Her last video for h.m.p. was released in March 2007 and she then signed with one of Japan's largest AV firms, Soft On Demand (SOD). [48] She made four original videos with SOD including her playing a massage girl in Super High-Class Soap Lady which contains a lesbian scene, [17] and Super Fucking, Orgasm Climax, 24 Hours 10 Fucks with several group sex scenes including a seven-person orgy. [17]

In addition to her hardcore AV career, Coda also appeared in an extensive list of "gravure" videos where she modeled partially nude or in a bikini. Her softcore videos were usually made under the name Risa Kouda. [48] Coda also starred in a softcore erotic kunoichi (female ninja) action movie directed by Yoshikazu Katō and released in Japan in 2007 as Youen Kunoichi Den: Yamame Hen . [48] It was subsequently released in November 2008 by Switchblade Pictures with English sub-titles under the name Twin Blades of the Ninja . A reviewer describes it as "not bad as it features three very attractive women who can’t act and roll with it as best as they can." [34]

In February 2008, she announced her retirement from AV work in her blog [38] and her retirement video, Ultra-Climax Nakadashi Orgasm , was released for SOD on February 21, 2008.

Arrests and trial

In November 2008, Coda and her boyfriend, Japanese tennis pro Joji Miyao, made news for having been arrested for drug possession on October 10. Police found "a small amount of drugs - 0.027 grams of stimulants and about 0.7 grams of marijuana" in Coda's apartment in Tokyo. She said she bought the marijuana to use together with her boyfriend because he enjoyed it. She and Miyao met in May 2007 but only started dating in September when he began spending several nights a week at her apartment. According to her statement, she had started using stimulants in August 2007 after breaking up with a former boyfriend and had been buying small amounts from a local dealer. She said that she bought marijuana for Miyao from the same dealer. She was working at a "high-class cabaret club in Roppongi " at the time of her arrest. [3] [3] [3]

At her trial in Tokyo District Court in December 2008, Coda, who admitted the charges, was found guilty and sentenced to 18 months, suspended for 3 years. She said her drug use was precipitated by a number of factors: loneliness, her grandfather's death, her mother being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and her breakup with her boyfriend in 2007. She planned to return to her parent's home and might go back to her studies. Her mother, who testified for her at the trial, promised to aid in her recovery. No mention was made of Miyao who had a separate trial. [3] [3]

A couple of months after her December trial Coda was once again arrested on drug possession charges. At her trial in Tokyo in April 2009, the prosecution asked for two years but the judge imposed a 16-month prison sentence telling her that this was a good time for her to get off drugs. Her fiance testified at the trial as a character witness. [3]

Later career

Coda was released from Fukushima Prison in March 2011, having served her sixteen-month sentence. At first she just stayed at home but decided to try to recover some of the recognition she had as her Risa Coda alter ego by writing a book. [7] The book, Addiction ( 依存症 , Izon sho ) ( ISBN 978-4575304749), published by Futaba in November 2012, chronicles her struggles with dependency and drug addiction. [7] [3]

In May 2013, eight years after her AV debut, Coda's first studio h.m.p. released a one video only comeback work titled Revival . At the same time, the studio also announced a 4-disk sixteen-hour compilation set of her earlier work. [3] [3] [3]
