Video rental shops offer dozens of pornographic films with teenage girls in school uniforms, popular manga feature rape and torture scenes with them and some hostess bars feature young women dressed up like schoolgirls. Some sex shops even sell the used panties of school girls, along with crotch shot of the girl, and sometimes even some of their saliva and a cassette recording of their moaning. The saliva, panties and recording are sold in small canisters with girl's picture on it. Some vendors are reportedly even collecting samples of menstrual fluid for their customers.
