25 Comments

Police from a special investigation team formed by the Osaka Prefectural Police’s Community Safety Division have arrested a former bar host on suspicion of violating the Anti-Prostitution Law after he used his girlfriend to offer sexual services to men for money.

According to police, Takuya Domeki, 25, who is unemployed and a resident of Izumi City, was formerly employed as a bar host at Osaka’s Minami Host Club, local media reported. Domeki is accused of pimping out his girlfriend, who is in her 20s, last December in order to pay off both her host club debts and his debts.

Police said the woman told them Domeki pressured her into it by saying he might be killed if he couldn’t get enough money to pay his debts. The girlfriend subsequently engaged in sex for money with several men, arranged for her by Domeki.

In addition, Domeki imposed a quota on the woman to earn a minimum of 100,000 yen per day. Domeki took about 5 million yen and spent the money on his own living expenses and gambling.

What he did was illegal! Now, if he properly paid the local organized crime group their percentage, it would have been fine. What was he thinking.

Classy dude.

So her story is that he beat her? Threatened her life? Told her her life was in danger from others? Nope. He said his own life was in danger. Is this some kind of joke? She was forced by his story that his life was in danger?

They both had debts to some type of hosting club. Just shows the type of people who would get involved in this type of activity.

If your working as a host in a club, I do believe your suppose to earn money not go into dept. at the club.

Domeki pressured her into it by saying he might be killed if he couldn’t get enough money to pay his debts.

She should have dumped him and found a new boyfriend, His dept. is his responsibility to it off not hers.

Domeki imposed a quota on the woman to earn a minimum of 100,000 yen per day. Domeki took about 5 million yen and spent the money on his own living expenses and gambling.

This guy is a bum a real piece of crap he wanted her to sell herself and earn a minimum of 100,000 yen a day and took 5 million from her for his living expenses. So why didn't he sell himself to Gay men (Bottom up) for the money. I feel for the girl but I guess she's not the sharpest tool in the shed.

This is not uncommon at all in Japan. Many Japanese women would do anything for their host bfs. Most of the girls working in places in Kabukicho are there to make money for their host. 100,000 yen monthly minimum is light. One of the girls I know have a monthly minimum of 500,000 by her host “bf”, he basically just threatens to tell her parents about her work, as she is too ashamed, she had to keep working 7 days a week often without sleep to support this host.

Hosts makes the most money out of almost any profession at the cost of lives of many women.

He pimped her. They both were living beyond their means. That is how the host/hostess world works. They charge employees/customers outrageous prices that most can't pay then they are forced into the sex business to pay off the debt.

The hosts are initially indebted to the club when they start. Customers becomes sex workers. Sex workers are the majority of host club customers.

I wouldn't be surprised if she was his customer at the beginning.

Reminds me of South Park's 'butters bottom bitch' episode, if you know what I am sayin'.

Way to go! Get that girl to bring in the bacon! What a loser!

I'd have to say they are both losers. Him for racking up debts he can't pay, preying on her to finance his lifestyle, pimping out someone he supposedly "loves", etc. Her for racking up her own debts, going along with his demands to prostitute herself for HIS debts, etc. They sound made for each other.

Say ten thousand a pop and that’s five hundred punters - ignoring repeat business!

This is actually amusing.

"Police said the woman told them Domeki pressured her into it by saying he might be killed if he couldn’t get enough money to pay his debts."

I do not see how the "pressure" here. Yes, he is a scumbag, but it was her decision to believe his lie. Saying that this is the same as forced prostition is claiming that women have no free will and not enough intelligence to see a scam. I can understand the white instinct here, but if the females in the forum do not see that this is underhanded way of treating them like children, then, well, maybe the claim is right.

So who squawked to the police? It sounds like she was willing to sell her body for her darling Takuya.

I don't know (and don't want to know) what the going rate is for a prostitute - but Y100,000 a day seems high, so I suspect that she needed to service several men a day.  Unless she really enjoyed her work, it sounds like hell to me.

Where does it say it was a lie? Do you think the yakuza never kills debtors?

Please read the article again. This guy was asking for 100,000 a day.

If she was/is his Girlfriend then there is certainly something in that relationship to resort to such actions. I feel quite sorry for her.

However if it is true that he spent the money on Gambling and his own personal lifestyle desires, then he is a Scoundrel and a thoroughly rotten man, and deserves some form of corrective action.

As for the Debt situation... that should be looked into too.

Yes, I just read that now. I'm pretty surprised at that number. That is actually very difficult unless his girlfriend is very pretty, which I think she probably is.

Most host clubs actually have some connections to the sex industries. Most girls who work there are easier for host club debt, or so addicted to their hosts. The host club will typically refer the woman customers to a connected sex shop once they rack up enough debt. The contracts to those sex shops are typically very bad, e.g. the shop keep all cash (does not count toward debt) except for options, or 50-90%. The debt typically have monthly minimums of 500,000 yen, etc. with very high interest. I have friend who is paying about 1,000,000 a month in debt to the host club, but 850,000 of that is interest. And when she couldn't make the 850,000 yen payment in any month, it is added to her principle.

It is not only the ikemen culture in Japan that's causing this, but also the lack of regulations (for credit and interest charged on them by the host clubs) which forces hundred of thousands of women in Tokyo alone into sex work due to how exploitative host clubs are.

I would really like to see regulations to the host clubs, it is ruining the lives of hundreds of thousands of not millions of woman in Japan.

From this alone it seems to me at least, that this has been going on for quite a long time. If he took 5 million yen, I wonder just how much she was getting from him?

There is a hell of a lot missing from this story than just one guy pimping out his rather stupid gf here.

Pimpin Ain't Easy. I'm surprised he hasn't pimped himself out to them Yakuza kats.

This is how they do it every day folks.

First the guy becomes a fake boyfriend of the girl (target) he's going to turn over later to somebody else to perform tricks or become a porno actress.

Second, after the fake boyfriend has handed his girl over to the snakes (for a commission), they get the girl hooked on drugs and then she's really in trouble.
