So a dirty little secret of mine is that I love true crime Ever since at nine years old I found a book about Jeffrey Dahmer in a drawer in my grandmother's guest bedroom and read it all the way through in one sitting I have been stuck on the idea of people who can be revoltingly awful without remorse I have always been a person who overkills no pun intended on the guilt when I do something shitty which is often hence nagging depression and anxiety so the idea that there are people in the world who not only don't feel remorse for their actions in normal society but also don't feel remorse for actions fifty zillion times worse than anything I could ever manage in even my worst state of mind is fascinating to me Like aliens Basically to a self flagellating person such as myself sociopaths and psychopaths are aliens Wow I bet they aren't to you though huh Durr I mean the reason they are weird is that I feel guiltremorse than any other emotion Fine that's not special Lord I hope that's not specialI always had this idea about Japan that violent crimes aren't really committed there because well violent crime is rude Of course there's always the yakuza and such but that seems like of a fiscalpower thing and less about just indiscriminate bloodshed for ultraviolence's sake It just never struck me as a place where random women get murdered for the sake of getting randomly murdered Japan is my go to when people start spouting some shit about the influence of violent films of violent video games or violent bleeblop I'm like look at Japan They have way fucked up movies and anime and than just about anywhere and like nobody gets murdered for pleasure there I mean just about nobodyBut they do And the case covered in this book was apparently a huuuuge deal at the time An attractive British woman goes missing after moving to Tokyo to make big fast money as a hostess in the Roppongi district You know like that girl in The Sea Came in at Midnight Hang out at the bar with dudes talk to them flirt no fucking Unfortunately a reuirement of this hostess job was that you occasionally went off site with these dudes on dates Again hang out talk flirt no fucking I mean in theoryLucie Blackman went on one of these dates and disappeared It would take months and TONS of media coverage for her body to be discovered or what was left of it dismembered parts her head shaved and encased in concrete all buried on the beach SickHer killer was it turns out one of those less common cases of murderous sexual sadism in Japan Because this stuff happens to women everywhere I was reading this book in the same week that I heard about Junko Furuta and DO NOT look that up unless you want to hate everything and everyone forever and it made me realize there is no better place for ladies Carry a knife learn how to use it without cutting your hand try a watermelon a spaghetti suash whatev and wield it as you walk your dog Drink out of bottles instead of glasses at bars and never accept a drink you didn't mixpurchaseaccept from the bartender yourself Use the CopWatch app for your own purposes recording if someone is getting weird Write down license plates and send them to your friends before you go ANYWHERE Let him know you are doing all of these things If he can't accept that or thinks you are weird then just assume he is a serial killer It is never the victim's fault but let's ladies school each other in planning just in case SSDGM 3

An incisive Eat Darkness ePUB #10003 and compelling account of the case of year old Lucie Blackman who stepped out into the vastness of Tokyo in the summer of and disappeared forever The following winter her dismembered remains were found buried in a seaside cave The seven months in between had seen a massive People Who PDFEPUBsearch for the missing girl involving Japanese policemen British private detectives Australian dowsers and Lucie's desperate but bitterly divided parents As the case unfolded it drew the attention of prime ministers and sado masochists ambassadors and con men and reporters from across the world Had Lucie been abducted by a religious cult or Who Eat Da. This is a page turner in which very little happens but a whole lot is discovered about Japan particularly and also about the grand canyon sized gulf of mutual sualor called the sex trade It’s a sad and well banal story – Western girl goes to foreign parts to make some big money and never comes back One day she walks out into the sunshine and eight months after that she’s dug up from a grave by the sea Could that really make 400 pages of hypnotic readingLucie Blackman was a tall striking blonde English woman who discovered that being an air stewardess was actually a rubbish job wasn’t glamorous wasn’t well paid and was making her ill Her best mate Louise came up with an idea Let’s go and be hostesses in a bar in Tokyo We’ll make a bundle you can clear all your debts and we’ll have a banging time Come on Lucie thought about it for a week and said to Louise – I’m up for it if you are kiddo And she gave her notice in to BA And they went And they knew nothing about Japan or Tokyo or the strange sub section of the sex trade they were joining but they intended to learn fastThey arrived in Tokyo on 3 May 2000 and Lucie was killed on 1st July 2000WHAT’S A HOSTESSWhat did you say they were going to be A hostess What’s that now exactly Parry “To Western ears the word sounded laughably seedy and euphemistic scarcely respectable than ‘escort’”Hostess bars are a Japanese thing where the man pays an hourly rate to sit at a table and have a glammed up female in a sexy dress engage him in conversation and pour his drinks and stroke his ego That’s it No sex No back rooms No disrobing Parry “The practise of paying for female company has a long and noble history in Japan” The girls are supposed to keep the guy there buying drinks and chatting for as long as they can If a guy stays for over three hours it can cost over £500 And all they’re getting is chat which mostly Mr Parry informs us runs to Benny Hill style innuendo laden remarks about the colour of the lady’s pants and the size of her bosoms Apparently Japanese male banter with foreign women is a barrel scraping affair Some Westerners found themselves unable to grasp the concept of a hostess bar Parry uotes a Frenchman raving furiously “Why on earth has she been coming on so strong to me all evening if she doesn’t want to sleep with me” Japanese men never made that beginners’ errorNow surely that can’t be all to hostessing We’re not naïve Well no it’s not – there was dohan Which was a word referring to the date outside the hostess club which you went on with any client who became particularly smitten with you The idea was that you got a free posh meal and then you brought him back to your club where he paid through the nose again Parry “At most clubs any girl who pulled in fewer than five dohan in a month faced the sack Securing dohan for many hostesses became an obsession and a source of deep anguish” Dohan was not hooking though Hostessing was not prostitutionTHE WATER TRADE Mizu ShobaiThat’s the local name for the sex business in Tokyo Here you may patronise the following amongst others Lapdancing clubsnaturallyStrip joints it goes without sayingKoreanChineseTaiwanese aesthetic salon various types of happy ending styled massagesFassyon Herusu fashion health – massage with a bunch of extra stuffDeri heru Delivery Health – here the lady will visit you for the above in your home or hotelSopu Rando Soap land – guessLingerie pubs they serve you with their pants onSexypubs not here they don’tNo pants coffee shop for the teetotaller – we try to think of everything for the tired executiveNo pants karaoke coffee shop in which “women without pants perform duets with the customers before after or during relief”Heavy duty SM joints let’s not go thereSo as you may see hostess bars were the least sexual components of the water trade There’s a whole psychological thesis to be written on why a guy will spend £500 on a hostess when there’s all the above on offer but clearly a lot doA client killed Lucie Blackwood during one of these dohan dates This one took place at his flat He was a serial dohan date rapist and it seems that he just overdosed Lucie Many hostesses on reading about the case knew immediately not only what had happened to Lucie but exactly who had done it But they were scared to tell the police because none of them had visas and they were not confident in the police overlooking their illegal status THE HIERARCHY OF VICTIMSI think we all know that the whiter younger and female the victim is the the Western press is interested This is very clear There are other classifications of victims though – into respectable and unrespectable for instance Lucie’s family had to clarify the hostess thing for the British press as soon as possible If hostesses were call girls the press would have got very bored after a week but the family needed massive publicity to generate leads Note in fact they didn’t the police had figured out what happened fairly uickly but didn’t tell the family in case someone blurted out too much compromising information so heartbreakingly the father and sister and mother ran around raising big money and following many ridiculous leads for 7 months completely uselessly But in retrospect the father was of the opinion that all the false leads at least kept them busySo the dad wanted to meet Tony Blair to get him to pressure the Japanese PM to get the police to move uicker Which happened Parry says casually “no prime minister would meet with the father of a missing prostitute” And later Parry says although the superintendent would never have spelled it out if the missing woman had been for example a Chinese or Bangladeshi his interest in the case would have been drastically reduced For people like me who like to get their sociology from true crime books this is a must read For those looking for a shred of optimism about the state of male female relations in the early 21st century it’s a must to avoid Four stars
