I’m in a relationship with kids and I tend to consider myself as being “in crisis”. I’ve had platonic, friendly, love relationships, in different places.

There are various levels of high school dating, starting with cafés staffed by underage girls and peep shows where high school girls sit behind a one-way mirror in their school uniforms, posing according to customers’ requests.
In October, Maud de Boer-Buquicchio, the UN's special rapporteur on child prostitution and pornography, angered Japan's government by saying that up to 13 percent of schoolgirls had taken part in Enjo Kosai, or compensated dating.

She said working in such a cafe beats her old restaurant job, and she insisted that her customers treated her well. But Fukuyama said there is no prostitution involved.
