The Japanese School Girl culture is largely one based on fantasy and image, ... rules and the girls can suffer catastrophic encounters of rape and violence. On a cold, rainy night in Tokyo -- Japanese schoolgirls line the streets. Shivering in short skirts they pass out fliers for "JK" or "joshi-kosei," cafes in which adult males pay for the company of girls as young as 16. "Most are in their 30s, 40s and 50s," says 18-year-old Honoka. The girls, all dressed in their actual high school uniforms, earn about $8 dollars an hour to socialize and serve food and drink to men often more than twice their age. While some cafes, like the one in which Eli and Honoka work, strictly prohibit dating or interacting with customers outside the business, there is a much seedier and disturbing side of JK. CNN found businesses selling school girl massages, uniforms and even supposedly "used" underwear. Other girls are made available for dates, which the authorities and advocates for victims of sexual exploitation warn are often a barely concealed front for child rape. Japanese sex game show
with cutesy culture has taken a dark turn, with schoolgirls now offering themselves for “walking dates” with adult men.
