Here's one for Yohan. A 14-year-old schoolboy was arrested for paid sex with a 14-year-old girl in a toilet. He paid her 60,000 yen from his pocket money. He got arrested, but she was not charged and got to keep the cash.

From a Japanese-language blog: http://blog.livedoor...es/1297996.html

Fantastic!

Japanese people must be smaller than I thought...

This is the original article from the newspaper.

Who was reading this Japanese blog and translated it for you into English?


1)
Where is it written, that both children were of the same age (14)?

It says

中3年の男子
中学1年の少女

The boy was a middle school-3rd year student, which means, he should be 14 or 15.

The girl was a middle school-1st year student, which means, she should be 12 or 13.

Age of consent in Japan is 13, but age for prostitution is 18.

It is written in that article that the boy was introducing himself as 18 (but he was 14) on the internet and was offering money for sex-contacts with middle school girls (12 to 15).

He was charged for

Prohibited invitation
Child prostitution
Child pornography

(so maybe he took also pictures of her)


2)
Where is it written, that the girl was not charged and could keep the money?

If she is under 13, she cannot be charged by law, as she is unable to give consent.

I find nothing in these links on this blog, which says anything about the money, except that the boy said, he was saving it out of NewYear presents and pocket money.

It's from another site. When you get a summary of a blog report that is a summary of a newspaper article things tend to get lost in translation.

If the girl was under 18, it seems she violated Japan's prostitution laws - if indeed an act of prostitution took place. I don't see how they can charge the boy but not her. They had sex, she took the money. If it wasn't legally consensual because of her age it must have been legally defined rape.

The summery of the Japanese blog you gave the link above in this thread was also OK, and if the translation is from somewhere else, then somebody added in English remarks, which were nowhere written in Japanese. It's not 'lost' in translation, but untrue statements were added.

If the girl is under 13, she cannot be charged and she cannot violate Japane's prostitution laws therefore, and a middle-1 student is usually 12.

For sure, they were NOT of same age as added as remark in the 'translation'

1 -b
And if she is over 13, who says, that she will not be charge? It is nowhere written in the Japanese original article, that she will not be charge, that she could keep the money etc... this was added by somebody in English.

The article said merely, that it was decided to charge the boy, it does not say ANYTHING about what happened with the girl, and it says nothing about their both parents.

2 -
Why MUST ANY sexual activity between boy/girl be legally defined rape? (I know, in USA/UK narrow mind feminist thinking this is the case, but not here in Japan)

Statutory rape in Japan can only be charged if indeed a 'rape' took place, but the definition of what is a 'rape' in Japan is totally different from what is a 'rape' in the Western world.

I can only guess, but it seems he took pictures, and maybe undress her for that and touched her everywhere...but in Japan this is still not 'rape'.

There are no details available what really happened, about what they really did.
It is nothing mentioned about that he penetrated her in whatever way.
Data about minors are not published in Japan.

I was being facetious. The English language source is a fun site but hardly a reliable resource for hard news: http://www.sankakuco...oli-toilet-sex/
