Policing Prostitution and Venereal Disease in Occupied Japan
Chapter 2 is mainly about agency—cooperation, complicity, and resistance—between occupiers and the occupied, reconstructing the informal strategies to police prostitution and venereal disease. It discusses legal debates on prostitution and venereal disease and its control among the occupation’s law divisions, and it closely looks at the enforcement of law by the occupiers’ military police and Japanese police units. It addresses the emergence of unlicensed prostitution after the abolition of licensed prostitution in 1946, in which the streetwalking sex worker surfaced as a new phenomenon in modern Japanese history.
