Back in early August, Yoshihiro Murakami, a 62-year-old resident of Osaka’s Shimanouchi neighborhood, invited a group of people over to his home. As a thorough host, he also had some entertainment planned, but his guests weren’t there to play charades or watch sports.
The gathering was the latest “orgy party” organized by Murakami, and this naked shindig’s guest list consisted of seven people: five men in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and 60s and two women in their 30s. It’s not known whether the unbalanced male/female ratio was a crowd-pleaser or not, but it’s a pretty safe bet that all seven guests, plus Murakami himself, were unhappy when they got arrested by the Osaka Prefectural Police last weekend.
While there’s no law against a group of consenting adults going straight from “Nice to meet you” to “Let’s get it on” in Japan, there is a law about saying “Sure, as long as you pay me for it.” Murakami assembled the orgy group though an adult website he runs, collecting approximately 15,000 yen from each of the men. The women, meanwhile, didn’t have to pay anything, and were instead paid from the money collected from the guys, with Murakami also ostensibly getting a cut of the cash. He also reportedly interviewed the male applicants before allowing them to attend, though it’s unclear whether this was an attempt to gauge how discreet they would be or because he was trying to weed out potentially problematic participants.© SoraNews24
