Japanese Prostitutes Having a Hard Time Too, In This Economy

I like learning new things.  Today I learned a bit about fuzoku gals, Japanese prostitutes working in sex shops.  The Tokyo Reporter gives us the details:

“Bosses of sex shops are under a lot of stress these days,” journalist Yukio Murakami tells Nikkan Gendai. “The number of customers has been plummeting, and the shop managers arms are being twisted by the owners to keep the business up. Demanding sex with a girl under the pretext of ‘on-the-job training’ may be a means of forcing out an employee who doesn’t get enough requests from repeat customers.”

Another factor behind such nasty treatment may be that employment in the sex industry right now is a buyer’s market. Since anyone who posts a staff-wanted ad gets a flood of applicants, no one is especially concerned if a girl leaves, since she can be quickly replaced.

So, now isn’t a good time to be a prostitute in Japan. Personally, I don’t care what a woman’s job is, sexual harassment is a no no. But obviously, not everybody agrees with me.
