Schoolgirls For Sale In Japan: That Too In The Busy Streets [Video]

Posted: January 6, 2016

Women’s Web is bringing the popular #BreakingBarriers event to Pune, Panjim, Hyderabad, Kolkata & Coimbatore. Register

Schoolgirls are actually for sale in Japan.It’s mostly lonely older men, dishing out money to be in the company of these young girls.

There is something very unsettling that’s going on a busy street in Japan. In this street, you can actually pay, to talk to young girls. And if you scratch the surface, you can have sex too. There are also bands of young school girls who sing, and if you pay, you can have a talk with them.

Much older men come to these streets. It’s not a teenage boy meeting another teenage girl. It’s mostly lonely older men, dishing out money to be in the company of these young girls. As one girl says though they pay for just the company, later the demand gets escalated, like paying more if the girl lets the client to touch her breasts.

The journalist in the video says, that the Govt. is not doing enough to stop this. An NGO, that tries to save these girls has the final say, that unless men stop buying, this will not stop.
