“Nice Work If You Can Get It”: Sex Masseur Busted


Police have arrested the male proprietor of a massage parlour for providing intimate massages to women, in what is said to be the first arrest of its kind in Kanagawa prefecture.

The 51-year-old man operated a massage parlour and aromatherapy centre in central Yokohama, catering to women in need of stress relief, where he worked as a masseur himself.

According to investigators, if the female patron so desired he would extend his massage activities to their nether regions as well.

Police say this was initiated at the explicit behest of the woman, and the service was so much appreciated he boasted many repeat customers.

However, he had managed to open his establishment in one of the (apparently few) areas of central Yokohama which strictly forbid the operation of brothels, and when the authorities somehow got wind of his antics they arrested him.

Possibly not unrelated to his arrest was his being charged with indecent assault several months prior, after a 36-year-old woman who came in for a massage alleged he insisted on touching “the lower half of her body” and providing an unwanted sexual massage.

The premise of male masseurs providing intimate massages for female customer and voyeuristically recording their antics has spawned an entire AV genre in Japan, and it will probably surprise many to learn that it was not a complete invention of the porn industry after all.

Local police say the arrest of a man for the crime is the prefecture’s first, and very unusual nationally as well – though “massage parlours” providing intimate massages to male customers quite possibly outnumber the boring regular kind in Japan.

For his part the masseur admits his wrongdoing and has remorsefully pledged he “will perform only proper massages from now on.”

    Seriously though why is this illegal? Who the hell got hurt? What is the justification?

    It's not illegal(I guess).
    The point is that he had his place in an area that brothels are prohibited.
    Imagine if it's beside a elementary school or something.

    Who cares if it's right beside an elementary school. The brothel would not put the children in any more danger than they were already in.

    > implying he did not massage their vaginas with his penis

    He might have been doing just that. I saw in the local news that a place with such a service had opened not far from my place. The argument was that the penis is better suited for a vagina than a finger is.

    Goes without saying that this wasn't in Japan.

    Brothel...? do they not know the meaning of the word? i don't think a guy offering massages, with the addition of sexual relief, as a brothel.

    i see nothing wrong here its not like he was doing it without permission and he wasn't fucking them only massaging them all over. Why is it always sexual when its the nether regions damn Society these days specially japan its not like were impressed that your crime rates are low every where were more impressed on how strict and ludicrous some laws are. I'D tar and feather all the idiots that impose such laws that make no sense. What ever happen to personal freedom?

    Just so. Face value, a massage is nothing really erotic, even if one happened to have a fetish for it - because the conditions and mindsets they are performed in are more akin to a hospital check up than a cozy, errm, sexual service session. Of course, one can 'fetishize' this in turn. But the actual problem is (projectively or actually) looking for opportunities to stretch the boundaries such a situation seems to offer to have one's way with the clients. Yet, as distasteful as it may be on the sensual level - not to mention unprofessional, fraudulent and so on - it probably is still not imperviable to 'fetishization'. That's why the guy is easily pictured doing just this, even if he had no such intentions. It's thought to be common enough.

    same anon.. now that i re-read the above post i didn't see anything about him being paid for the extra massage to the nether regions. So was it free? only there if the female patron so desired so they paid the same price weather they had the extended massage or not again not paid for any kind of sexual related activities no law broken there and if massaging the nether regions is illegal well BFs and GF beware you cant feel each other up and don't pull the public indecency bull because its behind closed doors out of public sight

    (Also, at least some minor proper sentence structure.)



    It's one thing to bandy the period about like you're an asthmatic Volus, it's another entirely to bend grammatical structure over sideways, lube the business end of a manual garden aerator and fuck it while singing Rebecca Black's "Friday" in a creepy falsetto.

    Maybe you should read or watch (if you're lazy) freakonomics. You'll know why its crime rate is very low

    um only if its not wanted my friend he only did it at the request of the female patron then SOME HOW?the police caught wind of it and arrested him on charges that should not have been. my guess a cop over heard it from a female customer thought it would get him promoted and made up an elaborate scheme to arrest him, or a pathetic boyfriend heard his girlfriend talking about it with some friends

    Man pays for sex massage -> man goes to jail
    Woman pays for sex massage -> man still goes to jail

    Yeah the pattern is that man accepts the fact that women are whores and nothing can be done about it.

    It's professional jealousy. Teachers & policemen are always getting reported & obligated to apologize and/or retire for touching women, but the women are paying this guy to touch them and recommending the service to others.

    A woman paying a man to rub her genitals can be interpreted as a woman paying for masturbatory sex. And paying for sex is a crime, although apparently the Japanese will usually overlook it if it is done discreetly enough & the requisite bribe is paid to the local authorities repeatedly in a timely manner -- they're just not overlooking it this time.

    Wrong! Under-aged prostitution is what you're thinking of. At a certain age paid sex is legal.

    Accepting cash for sex is not technically illegal for ANY age. Sex under the age of 18 however is. Just a sneaky way for dirty old men to curve sex with minors, while not interfering with their love of prostitutes.

    So which one was under-aged? The masseur or his client? Because they are certainly making what he did illegal in this case.

    Based on Sankaku articles if the police in Japan decides something is illegal, it will be illegal, regardless of laws existing or not.

    depend of the area, it's not like paid sex is legal everywhere in JP. And sometimes just "non penetrative sex" is permited.
