Sex sells! And nowhere in the world does it sell quite as well as in Tokyo — or so it can seem.

Pornographic magazines by the armful can be picked up in most convenience stores, not to mention “exciting comics for men” boasting adult-themed manga and sections devoted to “delivery health” and other sexual services. Touts brazenly beckon passersby into neon-lit “soaplands” and other risqué establishments in the capital’s seediest areas, and Japanese-produced Internet porn offers up some of the filthiest, weirdest fantasies out there.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
