June '09 - Yoshimi Yamahashi.
quite an unusual story I found on the net.
There's a website called Japan Today and I
was looking at the news and found an article
about a woman being arrested for selling
naked photos of herself.
quite a short article and other websites don't
go into any more detail, I've posted it below.
wife arrested for selling nude photos
Tuesday 24th June, 10:18
Monday arrested a 25-year-old woman
for selling nude photos of herself in
Kasugai City, Aichi Prefecture.
Yoshimi Yamahashi, 25, was arrested
after she was found by police to be
in possession of nude photos of
herself saved on a SD card of her
police, Yamahashi, who is married,
has sold nude photos and movies taken
by her handset to more than 100
people through the Internet since May,
2005. Police said she has earned
about 1 million yen so far. In other
photos, she was wearing school
uniforms at her clients
requests, she said.
quoted by police as saying, I
started this business because I
wanted to buy clothes.
find strange about the article is the fact
that a woman would be arrested for doing such
a thing. There are literally millions of
people doing the exact same thing online and
yet it's considered a crime in Japan, I never
imagined Japan as being such a prude country.
prostitution is perfectly legal in Japan as
long as it doesn't involve penetrative sex
and isn't in public.
think that one million yen is quite a lot of
money but it's only just over £6,000, that's
$10,000 in US money.
