(6/23) The 24th NFSJ Cafe  The Issue of “Sexual Consent” at the Root of Everything: Thoughts from the Front Lines of Supporting Victims of Sexual Exploitation

Five years ago, the issue of “coercion to appear in adult videos (AV)” came into the spotlight, and many people were surprised to learn that such a terrible thing was happening on the set.

From the very beginning, the NPO PAPS (People Against Pornography and Sexual Violence) has been involved in counseling, rescue, and support, listening to the voices of women who had not been able to speak out before, and sticking close to them. We will be welcoming Ms. Megumi Oka (Rachel Hill), who has been on the front line of the fight as a counselor for victims of sexual exploitation, regardless of age or gender.

Why do these women have to suffer so much? Why is the production of pornography so prevalent in Japan? Why do we pass by sexual images and videos in our daily lives as if they are commonplace?

Ms. Oka has been asking these questions for many years, and one of the answers she has found is “sexual consent. Let us listen to the heartfelt appeal of a person who knows all about the field of victim support!
