AV Idol - adult video stars are called in Japan AV Idols. When a porn actress becomes popular and recognizable she becomes called Idol, more popularity gives some idols cult status. In spite of their very often innocent looks they performs in hardcore porn movies, including gangbanging theme, bukkake, SM and some other fetish. AV Idol term is distinctively used for Japanese only actresses. In western culture it's simply Pornstar.
Mosaic and Urabon - almost unchanged since 1907 law about distribute obscene materials in Japan resulted in censorship. Adult Videos have mosaic which covers pussies and dicks of performers. Sometimes this mosaic is advertised as "Tiny" and is balancing on the edge of law. But people have it's demands and here comes underground (urabon) market. You can buy uncensored movies in Japan but not legally, you have to dig a bit their Urabon market (underground/black market). Some Japanese movie producers are shooting uncensored movies but it is illegal to sell it even outside of Japan so they are selling raw footage to outside companies and since they are producers not distributors it happens to be legal by the Japan law.
