Okay gang. Here is an article from Japan Times on the Japanese sex industry...may kami-sama save the troubled angels in white fluff bras and panties...
🙂

How many of the 700,000 to 4 million global victims of human trafficking a year (according to a 2002 U.S. State Department survey) end up in Japan?

Given the secretive nature of the trade, nobody knows for sure, but the Geneva-based International Organization for Migration estimates that, at any one time, the estimated 2.37 trillion yen-a-year Japanese sex industry (according to Takashi Kadokura of the Tokyo-based Dai-ichi Life Research Institute) involves as many as 150,000 foreign women, many of whom are coerced or lured here under false pretenses

A recent ILO report confirms the finding of IOM:

Quote:

Japan is reported to be the largest market in the Far East for non-Japanese women in the sex trade, with some 150,000 mainly Asian women involved. There is no age disaggregation in these statistics and they very likely include girls below 18 years of age.

The Japanese Immigration Bureau, Ministry of Justice, reports that such illicit movement and entry to Japan is arranged by international crime organizations, which are often violent and heavily implicated in exploitation, debt accrual and the forging of documents.

International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) (IPEC)

The japanese sex-trade is shurely much worse than most like to believe. There is a tendency of romantizing the soaplands etc. We are talking about degrading treatment of women, and even children as well as human traficking.
 
Welcome back!

You, no doubt, saw the big thread on soaplands over in the Practical section.
 
Japan has some of the worst cases of human trafficking. This isn't all that surprising. Alot of the women that are trafficked to Japan are usually Thai. What's saddening about this, is that once the women realized they've been tricked, there isn't really anything they can do. They can't go to the authorities for help because they're basically illegal aliens, so they're trapped. What makes this worse, is that Japan is a country where sexual exploitation is almost accepted. Sadly, human trafficking is still being ignored. :kaioken:

I posted twice under that thread about "soaplands". However I am amased that people writing there seem so much more concerned if some prostitutes are not available for foreigners, rather than wether it is socially acceptable for men to use and abuse women who are often traficked by criminals who sell them, like any other illicit comodity like drugs and guns.

Tons of words something like, "very likely", this is the same argument in the small arms control group, people required visa to enter Japan know much better how strict the Japanese visa policy is.

I fully support what the gorvenment is doing now, such as her intolerant policy on "entertainment visa" for hostesses.

From my experiences most of them were Fillipina's. I suppose there are a lot of both. There are many illegals from Thailand working as farm help though. My mother in law had taken in one girl who ran away from the farm she worked at. She lived with my mother in law for years before finally she was caught and deported. Sad actually, she sent almost all of the money she received back to support her family.

Yes, I've seen a lot of Filipinas in the sex trade. Some Laotians and Thai girls.
A guy I met on a tour in Japan two years ago met an escort girl who is Thai-Chinese. She also was sending money to her family in Thailand which included two kids. Weird part of the story: he married her and they have a child of their own. Her kids in Thailand were brought over and now they are all living in the U.S.

That's an interesting story, Armand! I hope the part in red was just a slip of the fingers 😌

Oops! "Me" did not marry her. "He" did. Thanks for alerting me to it so I can fix it.
 
I guess that's a happy ending, the majority of the women who are trafficked see no possibility of escape. And as far as getting paid goes? They're either paid very little or nothing at all. Most of these women are kept in isolation.

This is the shame story of Japanese society.
Actualy, Japanese Government tighten the Visa issuing condition to Women from Asia contries like China, Korea, Thai, and Philipine to be responsible for people trafficking, resulting the number of Visa Issuing is dropped 1/100 or more. However, people in those contries conplain about it, and request own government to loosen the regulation since they want to go and work in Japan.
I "guess" that many of them are happy to be in Japan, since they doesn't have to be prostitute, and they can make a money, and send it to home. Only small number of women with bad cordinator get in trouble and stack with prostitution.
Or, Many of them understand they have to work at Sex industries, since they can make a money and send it to home. Only small number of women get in trouble with bad cordinator or Yakuza.

I think Japan police needs to investigate bad cordinator and Yakuza to stop Asian women stucked with Sex industories, but support asian coutries to help poverty issues too. Not like "Enjo-Kosai", many asian women have to sell theirself to live.
 
It's just a question of who has the money to buy the women and girls "sold".
It's a simular case in Germany ,because the people here are ,although we are in an economic repression right now, have quite a bit more money ,than most of the countries around especially poland and czechslovakia there is a market for young cheap sexlabour and it's the same in Japan I could imagine ,that it's not that much different with hispanics in the USA.

What do you think?

Well surely there are also some wealthy hispanics in america but the percentage of hispanics living under the povertyline is much bigger ,than in any other population group in the USA.
