Following the criminalisation of paid for sexual intercourse, the sex industry in Japan has developed into a number of varied businesses and offering services not prohibited under Japanese law. These fall into a number of categories known by various euphemistic names, such as soaplands, fashion health shops, and pink salons, with the term "health" commonly being a euphemism for sexual services. These businesses typically operate out of physical premises, either with their own employees or freelancers such as call girls , who may operate via Internet dating sites known as deai sites Internet dating sites or via delivery health services. Often advertised euphemistically as "health clubs", fashion health clubs are known for occasionally confusing foreigners unfamiliar with fashion health businesses. Sex workers employed at image clubs, whose activities are usually limited to oral sex, wear exaggerated costumes appropriate to the setting and the desire of the customer. Image clubs may offer itemized pricing for particular services, such as taking instant photographs, removing a woman's underwear or taking it home.

A blowgun also called a blowpipe or blow tube is a simple ranged weapon consisting of a long narrow tube for shooting light projectiles such as darts. It operates by having the projectile placed inside the pipe and using the force created by forced exhalation "blow" to pneumatically propel the projectile. The propulsive power is limited by the strength of the user's respiratory muscles and the vital capacity of their lungs. Many cultures have used this weapon, but various indigenous peoples of Southeast Asia , the Amazon and Guiana regions of South America , Western Europe and Guatemala in Central America are best known for its use. Projectiles include seeds, clay pellets, and darts. Some cultures dip the tip of the darts in curare or other arrow poisons in order to paralyze the target. Blowguns were very rarely used by these tribes as anti-personnel weapons , but primarily to hunt small animals such as monkeys and birds.
