Officers from the community safety department took the manager of SM club Tokyo Topaz, Kenichi Sugimoto, 45, and 35-year-old employee Mio Okada into custody for violating the Law Regulating Adult Entertainment Businesses regarding location of prohibited business.
According to investigators, Tokyo Topaz was registered as a deri heru (“delivery health”), or out-call sex, establishment when in fact it occupied an entire floor of an apartment building for the dispensing of various sexual and erotic services, including whipping.
Sugimoto has reportedly admitted to the allegations. “I thought I could attract customers by working from inside a high-end residence,” the suspect is quoted by police.
Officers seized whips, masks, ropes, studded leather goods, boxing gloves, and high-heel boots from inside Tokyo Topaz.
Since starting operations in November of 2008, the club has collected 30 million yen in revenue.
On two occasions, September 21 and November 22, the shop was seen administering sexual services to two male customers in their 20s and 30s.Tokyo Topaz lists the profiles of three mistresses on its Web site. Okada, who is not listed by name, is reportedly the club’s SM queen and trained in the martial arts.
The club’s site also indicates that fees start at 14,000 yen for 40 minutes. An entry charge of 2,000 yen is also required. Various options, including urination (2,000 yen), face-squatting (3,000), and the addition of a third mistress for 15 minutes (4,000 yen), are also available.
