STOP THE BITCH CAMPAIGN (2001): "We're Only High School Prostitutes!"

In an earlier post that I wrote about Japanese high school prostitutes (i.e. Enjo Kosai), I mentioned the movie Stop the Bitch Campaign, which is about middle-aged Kuni, who has a love/hate relationship with nymphet prostitutes. Kuni has an intense attraction to them, but he fears that their behavior is harming Japanese society; therefore, he sets out to stop their immoral behavior by ironically having violent and humiliating sex with them without paying. 
I finally got a chance to finish viewing the movie, and I found the logic used by the young prostitutes to justify their part-time jobs intriguing. Their logic had feminist overtones (e.g. We can do whatever we want with our bodies. Plus, we're just high school girls having fun). 

Correctly, Kuni didn't agree with their faulty logic. Incorrectly, he didn't go about rectifying the situation in the best way.
