16 Comments

Police in Tokyo have arrested a 55-year-old gynecologist on suspicion of sexually assaulting a pregnant woman in her 30s at his clinic last November.

According to police, the incident occurred at the Yayoi Clinic in Adachi Ward at around 2:45 p.m. on Nov 21, Sankei Shimbun reported. Police said the suspect, Masayuki Yaoi, who was arrested on Thursday, is director of the clinic. They said he has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying “the woman was my type.”

The woman told police Yayoi asked her “Please tell me that you like me,” then forcibly kissed her, groped her breasts and the lower part of her body during an examination.

After the incident, the woman went to a nearby koban (police box) to report what had happened. Police said they are questioning Yayoi about whether he has sexually molested any other patients.

Have an assistant or nurse present at all times with the patient. It will reduce the chances of acting impulsively around attractive women.

Andrew Yang’s wife recently revealed publicly that she was assaulted by her gynecologist when pregnant . It took her a lot of time to have the courage to even tell her husband.

I applaud the courage of this woman!!!

The interesting thing about this comment is that I thought this was industry standard in Japan. Even the female OBGYN always had a nurse present for all of my wife's check ups when she was pregnant.

But a woman shouldn't have to be worried about whether or not her doctor will assault her during such a moment. A pregnancy comes with it's own stresses and mixed bag of emotions.

Well, that's one way to shut down your clinic abruptly I guess.

TV news said there were other cases.

Did she not fight back enough? Or did she? Law is pretty specific on this.

 They said he has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying “the woman was my type.”

Does this mean he's been eyeing up patients for thirty years?

Make Gynecologist Occupation strictly for women only.

Problem(s) solved.

I'm actually surprised he got sexualy aroused by one of his patients, given his presumably decades long experience in this job. She must have felt very special to him. Extremely creepy guy.

Please tell me that 'in Japan' was just a slip of the mind and NOT an attack on Japanese men in particular for what is a disgusting behavior that is pan Human males and not altogether uncommon in Human females. Sexual aggression is a universal Human issue and I suspect Japan ranks low relative to other cultures in our world for abuse of females. For example, what is the rate of sexually associated murder in Japan versus, say, the United States of America?

Wikipedia: Femicide (male violence upon females) in the United States accounts for the deaths of four women daily. [almost all sexually related]

Creepy is putting it mildly in this case.

He's already access the lower part of her body - what else does he need
