And not just 2D loli porn, it seems, but also the kind that involves real children engaged in adult activities. The Democratic Party of Japan reportedly argues
that simple posession of such pornographic materials should not be punished by the law, as long as commercial benefit is not an issue. But if somebody does try to sell child porn, they're all for jailing the bastards for up to 3 years. Free lolis for the people!
The Democrats' proposed amendment also comes with other legislative suggestions, such as extending the notion of "child porn" to include "items depicting juvenile sexual acts and similar", as well as hidden camera material. As for 2D loli porn, Japanese rorikons still have more than 2 years to enjoy themselves in peace, thanks to the Diet's decision
last summer to
investigate the issue until 2011.
