Japanese girl band star at centre of 'child porn' investigation after magazine used picture of her with boy touching her breasts.

Police in Tokyo are interviewing a magazine publisher over a photograph showing a young female pop star in an 'inappropriate pose' with a boy.
The photograph, showing AKB48 singer Tomomi Kasai, 21, naked with a blond child cupping her breasts from behind, was to be published in Shukan Young Magazine.

Here's the link to the article here:

The magazine was reissued with the ad removed, chances are there will be some big fines for Young Magazine and it will be swept under the rug like a bad traffic ticket.

I think what annoyed me more than anything, was this guy:
He added: 'Regardless of whether or not a large number of people would become sexually aroused by a photo of a child touching someone else's sexual organs, there is the possibility of the photo being considered pornography.'


Are you kidding me?

So this causes a scandal and Nirvana's album cover didn't?

Well, considering the history of AKB48 members becoming porn actresses... that's pretty tame imo.

Anyway, I personally see nothing wrong with the picture (except perhaps her shoulders that look broader than mine but oh well. :D )

What if it was a little girl holding a guy's masculine pecs?

I'm certain you would think otherwise in that case.

If you read the caption under, it says it's a cropped version of the original image

Nah probably not if you look at the lighting on the girl and the boy it's pretty clear the angles are right. Even with a lot of pro photoshopers adjusting the light angel to be correct without blinding or over white-ing the photo is pretty tough to do.

If I had to put money on it I would have to say the photo is real

It's a model shot for a magazine. That means either the photographer or a creative director controls the shot, not the model.

im just going to start off by saying "who wants to see an akb48 member naked wtf"
cause its for an ad ill assume its not willing
breast feeding is something ill assume most people did a bit in life

ill just define porn too

the depiction of erotic behavior to elicit sexual pleasure

the article makes me think that this ad is to sell something through sexual excitement (kid touching a breast)
an image of breast feeding elicits no sexual pleasure
why the fuck does a little kid need to do that either? ie we breast feed for nutrition but we dont touch a womans breast out of necessity (when were young, i know someones going to twist this)

I don't see why he wouldn't be willing. It must be hard to get an unwilling kid to sit still with a smile for a professional shoot.

I'm not going to answer why it needs to be a kid, since art nowadays is dumb, though likely it had something to do with being different. The point of the ad probably has more to do with simply the act of touching breasts than the fact that there's a kid. I don't see how -who- is touching the breast makes any difference.

Furthermore, the breasts are not necessarily a sexual part of the body - like men's pectoral muscles, only with more fat(fat men excluded). Would a picture of a child's feet be child pornography because someone with a foot fetish might find it arousing?

Really, we have to draw a line somewhere. No children were harmed, and most likely, the boy will only grow up with an awesome story to tell his friends.

The kid looks like he's enjoying it.
As a child, I was told that society is a melting pot of talents; knowledge and experience combined to form important alloys that will contribute to mankind. When I got to highschool, however, I thought that it's more like a river in which the water represents our peers while we ourselves are the stones in the river. Constant erosion by mindless majority sheeping has made us lose our unique edge. After I hit the age of 18, I realized that I've been wrong all along. Society is no melting pot. Society is no river. Society is a person, a very skilled rapist, and he has fucked us all.

Thats just gender inequality and discrimination...

It wouldn't be much different. If the image of a shirtless guy with a little girls hands on his chest screams sexual to you than you might want to reevaluate what goes on in your head.

Not even child porn. Now, if she were touching the kid's crotch, then you got a child porn story.
