First there were the “enjo kosai” Internet sites where underage girls hook up with adult males in exchange for money. Now there’s a new type of Web site that unites girls running away from home with men offering a place to stay in return for sexual favors.

Called “iede saito,” or runaway sites, and potentially harmful to children, they provide a forum where messages posted by runaway girls asking for a place to stay are answered by men.

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