Another perverted coward. They need to increase the penalties for this kind of antisocial behavior to a point where these creeps will not even consider a cowardly indecent assault.

Ohhh gosh sensei ... How did the student trust and respect you after they read this news?

Reading the title, I was expecting the worst. In a way, I am relieved for the woman.

There are thousands of clubs in Japan to satisfy its desires. Why did he not pay for a service ? Oh, he certainly wanted the thrill, but ended his life prospect

It's just their way of asking for a date. Touch and run!

Guess where he doesn't work anymore?

Reportedly only grouping her breasts, according to Sigmund Freud may suggest a dysfunctional relationship with his mother when he was an infant. Interesting to know if he was breastfeed. Usually rape is power motivated, but his case seems like some deep childhood psychosis that means he shouldn’t be a junior school teacher.

I support the Singapore model, caning with a wooden pole. Preferrably over the head.

I wonder if he'll still be able to teach.

If he had wanted to fondle breasts, why didn’t he go to an oppai pub or soapland? Japan has a service to cater to any kind of kink.

Police said Nakamura has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying he couldn’t control his sexual urges. This Koto should not be teaching anyone he is a predator on his own admissions saying he couldn't control his sexual urges. Should be around female students

There's a lot of the same happening... walking-up from behind a woman, and grabbing her breasts... where does this idea come from ?

You can't help but wonder why people do such crimes in public knowing there are cameras almost everywhere, watching.

My girl is Japanese and has big t*dd**s and told me this has happened to her before, too, while in high school and as recently as a couple of years ago in a train station at the ticket machine. It's happened so some of her friends and they all say sexual assaults have been happening in Japan for decades so it's nothing new. I was surprised when I first heard this. They just try their hardest to avoid it whenever possible and make themselves look less attractive to perverts. If someone is already stressed; then add sexual frustration to the mix, he or she is bound to eventually snap if they don't have a healthy outlet to release tensions. Sexual assault is not right, but you can kind of see where some of us are weaker than others.

Sexual assault is not right, but you can kind of see where some of us are weaker than others.

While it is good to know that you're gaining awareness of sexual assault as an issue, and are supportive to your gf after her ordeals, you still need to think more about the issue.

It's not a matter of these men being "weak" and unable to control their sexual urges. It's about men not caring to control their sexual urges because they don't see women as people whom they need to respect. They see women as inferior, weak, and as sexual objects to use at their own discretion regardless of how the woman may feel. These men feel entitled to womens' bodies, time, and attention. You can see that in every aspect of society, in the way women are treated in the workplace and how womens' issues in society are either ignored or dismissed.

For example, did your gf go to the police? If she did, how did they treat the assault?

If she did not, was it because she knew how her assault would have been treated?

Ask her if you really want to gain a better understanding of what life is like for women.

Yes, after having a similar growing awareness of the women's experience in Japan and this almost secret world of sexual assault that is so common here I have been beating my drum about reform.

This!

Thank you very much for being an ally!!

sexual bullies

Best way to stop a bully is to beat them down

All women need to know how to defend and attack in self-defense enough to immobilize their attacker.

Dreams of a Star Trek future are nice, but unrealistic.

An old romantic trope in manga and dramas in Japan is a man hugging a woman from behind. So, it could be from that. Or, maybe it's just an easy way to grab breasts with your face hidden from identification.

Another one is when the woman has her back against a wall, and the man almost pins her there, putting one or both arms up against the wall, and he declares his love.

Personally, I find both tropes kinda cringey, especially the latter. But, the weird thing is many women actually find them romantic, probably due to indoctrination from TV, movies, and manga.

And to think he might try it on girls in his class, who would be too scared or intimidated (probably) to speak out about it. He's a sex predator and no business teaching in a school.

he couldn’t control his sexual urges.

Lame excuse. That doesn't make what he's doing to be right.

Police said Nakamura has admitted to the charge and quoted him as saying he couldn’t control his sexual urges.

I wonder how much influence the police had on this "confession"?

Besides, these statements can always be retracted and another defense can be put forth.

It would not be surprising if the accused has the charges dropped against him.

She said she didn’t know the man.

Is she married? Does she have a boyfriend?

Lots of facts unknown here.
