Compensated Dating in Japan

This report on compensated dating (enjo kousai) in Japan by Harry Fawcett of Al Jazeera  explains how teenagers receive payment of money or gifts in exchange for a ‘date’ with an adult. It mentions that a UN special rapporteur claimed that 13% of teenage girls have taken part in this activity – having lived in Japan and worked with adult men who were very open about their preference for having a teenage girlfriend, this figure does not surprise me. The report features Shihoko Fujiwara from Lighthouse; one of the leading experts in this area.


There’s also an excellent video by a vlogger named Mira that I highly recommend watching:
