Man who coerced 13-year-old girl into signing ‘slave contract’ before sex, arrested

58 Comments

Police in Nagoya have arrested a 29-year-old man on suspicion of violating the anti-child prostitution and pornography law after he had sex with a 13-year-old girl at a love hotel.

According to police, Tadahiro Daimaru, a company employee, met the girl on Twitter in January and arranged to meet her at the hotel on Feb 13, Sankei Shimbun reported. In the hotel room, Daimaru offered the girl 50,000 yen to have sex with him but before that, he coerced her into a signing a four-page “slave contract,” in which she voluntarily would submit to his desires and pledge eternal love for him.

Police said Daimaru filmed the sex act with his smartphone.

The incident came to light after Daimaru, who is from Saitama Prefecture, was arrested in March on suspicion of having sex with another girl who was a minor. An examination of video footage on his smartphone revealed the incident in Nagoya.

If this is true, an example needs to be made of this calculating creep.

They need to stamp down hard on him to get the message across publicly that this type of behavior will never be tolerated in a civilized world.

No doubt he soon will be a "former company employee, now unemployed" the next time we read about him.

It's great that there is an 'anti-child prostitution and pornography law' but is there not some kind of child-rape or statutory rape charge too? The end of the article hints at that, about him being arrested in March for suspicion of having sex with a different girl who was also a minor. Or maybe they are just going to sequence the charges and re-arrest him in order to keep him in jail until they have an ironclad confession?

Regardless of own will or mutual agreement, the minor is not eligible to make any contract without parental consent. Basic of basics, and it should be taught at school.

It is illegal to have sex with anyone under the age of 18.

A 20 year old male college student can be arrested for having sex with an 18 year old female high school student.

bokuda - Sadly, in Japan is perfectly legal to have sex with a 13yo girl.

Sorry that is incorrect. However, it is only a couple of decades ago the age of consent was lifted from 13 to 16 nationally.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Juvenile Obscene Acts – Every prefecture and municipality have laws in place protecting minors from “unethical relationships” and sexual activity with adults. Depending on the prefecture, it’s illegal to have a sexual relationship with a minor below the age of 16 to 18.

A popular example is Tokyo’s “Youth Protection Law,” which prohibits adults from having sex with minors below the age of 17. Does this mean Japan’s age of consent is more in line with the rest of world? Not exactly…

Let’s say your only knowledge of Japan’s age of consent is the misinformation that the age of consent is 13. You would be charged with a felony and could face up to 20 years of forced labor.

A slave contract? Wow, I've never even thought of that.

1 ( +3 / -2 )

Japan has complex laws around the age of consent that vary significantly across the country. Three primary laws define the age of consent: the Penal Code of Japan, the Juvenile Obscene Acts, and the Civil Codes. Each of these set out different definitions of when sexual activity is acceptable, with some applying to the whole of Japan and others to specific prefectures (Japan is divided into 47 administrative jurisdictions).

The Penal Code of Japan was established in 1907 and sets the age of consent at 13. Any sexual activity with a person under 13 is considered to be statutory rape and can result in a prison sentence of up to 20 years. However, chapter 34 of the Children Welfare Act also forbids any act of 'fornication' with children (defined as anyone under 18 years of age).

The Juvenile Obscene Acts, which take precedence over the Penal Code, set out laws relating to the age of consent for specific prefectures. In some, sexual activity with anyone under 15 is illegal, but in others, the age is 18. In these prefectures, engaging in sexual activity with a person under the age of consent can lead to a prison sentence of up to five years. Although rare, in some prefectures, even hugging or holding hands with someone underage can be illegal.

Sadly, in Japan is perfectly legal to have sex with a 13yo girl.

In almost all cases it is not legal to have sex with a 13 y/o girl within Japan.

The minimum age for sexual activity in the Japanese constitution is 13. This merely means that any sexual contact with a person under 13 has to be considered as a crime and has to be investigated by authorities, regardless if this person or parents/guardians wish that or not.

In case of exchange of money or otherwise valuable items (like jewelry etc.) in return of sexual favors the minimum age is 18 for both.

There are other restrictions too, even if no money is exchanged for sex in case of minors:

For example parental rights are quite strong in Japan and parents have the right to interfere, there are restrictions between teachers and students, medical doctors and patients and so on.

There exist several categories of sexual predators and Daimaru appears to fit that of the least culpable: the sad sack incel loser in the rough competition among males in pursuit of females, i.e., his inability to attract the favors of a woman. Unfortunately, he's more likely to end up in a prison rather than enter a clinic where he might receive some much-needed psychiatric help for a miserable condition that afflicts many young men.

Let's agree that I'll never understand the Japanese law.

I don't even know what's the minimum age of consent in Japan yet. You all keep throwing different random numbers.

Like bokuda, I often see foreigners who are unaware of the Child Welfare Law and claim that sex with 13-year-olds is legal in Japan.

Such foreigners are often not aware about their own countries and laws.

In Europe there are various countries (Germany, Austria, Italy, Serbia, Portugal, Albania, Estonia and maybe some others) where the age of consent is 14, but it seems this does not disturb anybody.

Same in South America, it is 14 in Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, Paraguay - nobody cares....

I am not sure, but I think this Japanese 13 y/o age limit was decided during the Meiji area, when a new constitution based on European values and samples of the old German constitution at that time were used for creating a new legal framework for Japan.

However later on various other rules were added to protect minors and now it is almost impossible to have legal sex with a 13 y/o girl in Japan.

-

About this Japanese man 29 y/o who had sex with a 13 y/o girl in exchange of yen 50.000, he was clearly breaking the law and will find himself in jail for a while. What an idiot, ruining his future. If he spends his money in a soap-land with ladies doing their legal jobs there would be no problem at all.

This man is a criminal, no question about that - but others also failed to teach this girl how to behave when facing certain situations.

This man and this girl had internet contacts over several weeks before meeting in a hotel room.

For sure it can be said, that her parents (or single mother or guardian etc) failed badly to control her activities on the internet and failed to teach her some moral values for her own safety.

They should have strongly adviced her NEVER to accept money or valuable gifts from anybody - regardless if from unknown adults or 'best boyfriends' of her own age - in return of sexual favors of any kind including taking nude pictures of her.

This is one of the most disgusting crimes anyone can do. A 13 y/o is a minor and this one was coerced/pressured into wrongdoing. Even worse it was for performing a bondage porn act.

Prostitution, pedophilism, exploitation, snuff is never acceptable under any circumstances and should not be tolerated anywhere. She is much too young for any of this stuff, let alone kinky stuff. Tadahiro Daimaru is a sicko that needs to be jailed and kept away from children forever.

I am not sure why the National age is still at that but it should be raised.

This man was arrested because of violating the anti-child prostitution and pornography law, which is by my knowledge nationwide. It clearly says that in case of exchange of money (or otherwise valuables like jewelry etc) for sexual services the minimum age of BOTH persons must be 18.

About age of consent, in various countries in Europe and South America -Germany, Austria, Italy, Serbia, Portugal, Albania, Estonia - Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador, Colombia, Paraguay - and some others too, it is 14, only 1 year difference to Japan, but nobody cares.

Sal AffistJune 26 05:14 pm JST

It's great that there is an 'anti-child prostitution and pornography law' but is there not some kind of child-rape or statutory rape charge too? 

Yes, there is - if the minor in question is younger than 13 - below the age of consent.

About same legal situation in those countries I mentioned above, if the minor is below 14.

This is not the case in Japan. Japanese prisons are known about their very strict discipline rules, anything else but a comfortable stay and all prisoners have to work - but all inmates are safe. It is very rare, almost unknown, that any inmate attacks another inmate or prison officers.

These young ppl need to take away their phone. 

It is very difficult today to take away from children computers, internet, mobile phones - some children know even better how to make use of them than their parents.

However this girl was into sex-chat with this man for one month and obviously parents did not check about at all what she was doing on the internet and mobile phone.

She also disappeared for some hours, parents had no idea where she is going and after coming back home she had yen 50.000,- in her wallet - from where is this money coming from?

Her parents were acting irresponsible and negligent.

It's not wrong and not illegal (for stupid do-gooders this is child-abuse) if parents check out what their 13 y/o daughter is doing - they should take a look in her chat history, e-mails, twitter, facebook, to check out what she has in her handbag/wallet and in her room, to tell her she has to report where she is when going out and give a time when she must be back - and when she breaks these rules, to insist she has to stay at home without connection to outside, regardless if she likes that or not.

Further, parents have to teach their minor-age daughters that it is totally unacceptable to offer sexual favors in return of money.
