TOKYO (TR) – Tokyo Metropolitan Police on Friday announced the bust of an SM club in Shinjuku Ward for allegedly offering illicit services while licensed as a restaurant, reports Nippon News Network (Oct. 3).
Early Thursday morning, officers arrested Kozue Osugi, the 41-year-old manager of Saddle, for supplying erotic services that violate the Law Regulating Adult Entertainment Businesses, including stimulating naked male customers with needles and spraying their faces with urine.
Referred to as a “mistress bar,” Saddle, which is located near JR Yotsuya Station, specializes in “allowing perverted men to worship women,” as explained on its Web site. According to TV Asahi (Oct. 3), services also included male customers being forced to clean the bar’s toilet while naked.
During the raid, officers seized ropes, whips, studded belts, chains, gimp masks and high-heeled boots.
In spite of two warnings from law enforcement about its operations over the past two months, the bar maintained its business plan. “Since cash flow was so severe, we continued as before while knowing it was wrong,” police quoted Osugi.
Over the past five years, Saddle has accumulated 60 million yen in revenue. An average of 100 customers visit the bar each month.
According to the bar’s Web site, entry fees for men begin at 8,000 yen for the first hour, while women are charged the same price for an indeterminate period.
