Taal grls japone sex-58

The government is cracking down on the venues, however, amid claims the girls are often asked to strike explicit poses behind one-way mirrors or are taken for “walks” with older men who press them to have sex.

Legislation set to come into force on July 1 will take aim at the “JK” or joshi kosei (high-school girl) industry by banning such establishments from recruiting under-18s.

“It’s easy to talk to these girls,” said one man in his 30s who was sitting at a wooden school desk in AKB High School, a cafe in Akihabara, a part of Tokyo known for its subcultures.

A 17-year-old girl in a school uniform brought the man and his colleague, both of whom declined to give their names, beers and chitchat.

Still, by offering wages of US$13 an hour – twice more than what other part-time jobs offer – businesses like JK Special are able to lure teens under the age of 18 to fuel a booming business.

The JK entertainment industry (JK being short for Joshi Kousei, or female high school students) sells access to these girls through a bizarre range of services that include consultation sessions, dates, the chance to smell or tickle a school girl – and, increasingly, prostitution.

‘I WANT TO BE A SCHOOL BOY AGAIN’“For many people, it is a complex that they have about their own high school days, such as the feeling of unrequited love,” said Mr Yuki Aoyama, who has published five sold-out photo books featuring high school girls in uniform.

He does not think that JK businesses are exploitative.
