A 79-year-old security guard has been arrested on the suspicion that he met a 16-year-old high-school girl through a keitai (mobile phone) dating site and arranged “improper” meetings at a local hotel in return for “several tens of thousand yen.”

Allegedly, the aged lolicon asked the schoolgirl “Is a 49-year-old ‘grampa’ OK?” before their meetings began.

The suspect was arrested earlier today in Fuji City (Shizuoka Prefecture) where the crime took place, en route to the hotel for his appointment. We do not hear the details of whether their commercial relationship was consummated, though he is said to have often met with companions in such fashion.

It seems the man already admits to the charges, though the precise details of his capture are unclear; presumably it was uneventful.


Police investigators admit with surprise that this is the first time they have ever even heard of a crime where a man in his seventies engaged in underage sex with a schoolgirl.

This Japanese TV news report is the source of the only known images of the suspect, videotaped as he is being taken into custody by police.

    Sixteen isn't loli, but the knee-jerk "think of the children" moralists don't care about that. As far as they're concerned, anyone who is attracted to a minor is an evil evil evil pedophile lolicon. Heck, in Russia the moralists scream pedophilia over Ikkitousen, which is just filled to the brim with gigantic breasts and wide hips.

    As a political group, "think of the children" moralists are no longer reasonable. They're gone crazy with emotion and mad with power, and they don't care how many innocent people they crush with their hysterical accusations of pedophilia. You cannot appease or compromise with them, because they will target anybody they can.

    I don't believe it's merely a Japanese phenom, just that they're the most vocal (and thus brave) about it.

    why do you leave random words like keitai untranslated but still put the translation in parenthesis? there isn't even anything special about the word 'keitai'.

    It should probably have said "keitai deai site" to give these sites their full name, as they are very popular in Japan.

    The man should be awarded for still managing to be sexually active as painfully, horrendously, incredibly old as he is. Since the birth rate is so abysmal, he should be released onto the streets.

    Yeah, why are they trying to stifle love and enjoyment? These guys aren't raping, they are doing enjo kosai and or prostitution. It lets them buy stencils and erasers they need for their educations.

    The news source I used does not say exactly how the police became aware of this. Perhaps future news reports will...

    Why did he get arrested? Can't girls in japan get married at age 16? if that's legal, I cant see why this isn't.

    He paid for sex.
    It's okay to have sex, not okay to pay for sex.
    Also, to get married at age 16 you need the girl's parents' permission.

    There are probably some regional differences regarding the age of consent in play here.

    do the girls ever get arrested or punished at all in these situations? for prostitution or something? they're 16, it's not like they don't know what they're getting themselves into

    So, was he really a lolicon, or just pedophile?
    Got me kinda confused here...

    Erm, isn't "lolicon" or "roricon" simply the Japanese term for "paedophile" or "pedophile"? That's what I thought till now. Whether that is strictly appropriate (paedophilia is strictly a predelection with prepubescent children, whereas Lolita in Nabokov's book was certainly pubescent) doesn't really matter, since Western media certainly don't differentiate between paedophilia and ephebophilia etc. either. While it may seem odd that paedophilia only got a name in Japan fairly late (if it really is based on Nabokov's book we're talking 1950s or 60s, don't know if anyone knows an early instance of the word being used), all things considered it wasn't that early in the West either -- I am not aware of the word being used before Krafft-Ebing in the late 19th century.

    Of course the question for XSportSeeker would be: what do you mean by the question "was he really a lolicon or just pedophile"?

    You would be hard pressed to find any kind of schoolgirl who would hook up with a 79 year old, so of course he's going to downplay his age.

    Im surprised that the lie was a success. Do the Japanese have difficulty discerning between middle aged and decrepit old people?

    The reports say the 79-year-old man did ask:
    "Is a 49-year-old 'grampa' OK?"

    In other words, he was lying about his age.

    Disregard it then, it just looked like a typo from using the numpad.
