Do you have a Japanese car sex pest in your neighborhood? Tell-tall signs of this form of exhibitionism will be used condoms and wet tissues thrown out of the car onto the road or sidewalk. Yuck, yuck and yuck again.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against car sex per se, but dealing with other people's post-coitus detritus on the street where my kids and their friends walk to school is a real drag.
Earlier we reported on people dumping porn in public places and these types of anti-social behavior are known as koshu waisetsu (public indecency) in Japan.
Car sex is a popular theme for adult videos in Japan and seems a more common activity than in other countries, I would imagine, due to the lack of private places for couples to couple (as most young people still live at home until marriage and even thereafter).
The lack of available privacy explains the incidence of thousands of love hotels across the country to provide people with a space to be intimate in. If you don't have the money for a love hotel, the next best thing is your motor.
The lyrics of Billericay Dickie by British singer Ian Drury come to mind "had a love affair with Nina in the back of my Cortina".
For Ford Cortina substitute Toyota, Nissan or Honda and you get the idea. The car sex pest or pests in my neighborhood have become more active recently so I visited my local koban and reported my annoyance to the Japanese police. I was promised a patrol car would make a regular pass during the night. Result, nothing. So story to be continued.
