I claim knowledge of this from time in Japan and not interest in the subject matter.
The product was available through vending machines in a plastic tube. 10-15 years ago schoolgirls would never deliver the merchandise, it was mature
There are potential legal cases everywhere if you want to see it that way, including for misleading advertising.
This is not atypical of the culture, it's actually not regarded as too much of a big deal. Is that weird? It goes along with ultraviolent manga and
whiskey bars and geisha girls and pachinko parlors and mass merchandising gone rampantly wild.
And the country is far less violent (crimes against women or men) than the USA.
Why is that?
