Night Walker

Tokyo: Booklet

Booklet advertising sex-services posted on pedestrian route frequently used by office workers.

In many cultures phone booths are the advertising battleground for sex service advertsing – whether plastered over the booth in the UK, limited to the phone handset in Brazil and equally absent from phone booth’s in Thailand. What does it say about Japanese culture (or the profitability of sex services) that this kind of advertising survives in such a public space?

In a world of highly contextual adverstising expect to see ever more sensitive material make it into the public domain.
