Life and career
Mukai is best known in the West from Karl Taro Greenfeld's 1994 novel Speed Tribes where he appears as the thinly-veiled character "Choco Bon-Bon" who is depicted as struggling with methamphetamine addiction. Mukai has since kicked that habit and in 1999 launched a successful side career as a pro wrestler.
Mukai played himself in Shungo Kaji's 1999 mainstrean film about the adult video industry, Ekiben. In 2004 he was arrested for performing a live sex show at a Tokyo "happening bar", or sex club. He admitted his guilt to police, reportedly saying "It's my job."
As a wrestler, he has competed for FMW since 1999 and, following its collapse in February 2002, its derivatives. He once applied to join the New Japan Pro Wrestling dojo but was rejected. He announced his retirement from wrestling in his blog in December 2006.
In 2008, in an interview for the April 10th issue of Spa! magazine, Mukai explains how having sex can develop muscles. Accompanied by photos of him and a young starlet, the article has him demonstrating several sex positions and telling how they can be used to get a free workout. His specialty is ekiben, where the couple has sex with the man standing while the woman wraps her arms around his neck. The key to muscular development, according to Mukai, is to support the woman by her thighs and use the arms to move her up and down.
