Yeah, well ... among things you should never ever trust Japanese folk about are "this pizza is great" and "it tastes just like cabernet!"

Definitely yes. But funny nonetheless.

That sounds extremely familiar; I'm pretty sure that once upon a time, I read a story about a similar business somewhere in the USA -- maybe a private eye who kept sexy women on staff to entice husbands whose wives hired them to find evidence of infidelity?

I've never seen Scandal; I'm pretty sure what I read was something in a newsmagazine. (Paper, not Internet.)

Scandal is so, so, so bad and I can't stop watching it.

Out of curiosity, how would something like that play out in America? Legally, I mean? If it were criminal actions, the husbands could theoretically cry "entrapment" and get off the hook. But in cases like this -- say, hypothetically, I think Jeff is cheating on me (but he is not), so I hire the private eye who in turn hires a sexy babe and Jeff does succumb eventually to the temptation -- which he never would've been exposed to in the first place had my suspicious self not hired that private eye. (The question works equally well in reverse: Jeff unjustly suspects me and hires the private eye who sends Sexy McSexgod my way ... I suspect, but cannot prove, that in such cases the "double standard' might work slightly in my favor -- I wonder if Sexy McSexgod might face, like, "rape by deception" charges. Or even Jeff or the private eye?)

It seems like it would be perfectly legal. If lying to have sex with someone is "rape by deception," then 90% of people would be at risk.

Sure, but in cases like this ... it's not simply "I am super-horny, I think that guy/gal would be fun in the sack"; in this case, it is "I have been hired to have sex with that guy for the sole intention of getting it on film for lawsuit purposes."

Come to think of it -- with the exception of certain Nevada counties where prostitution is legal, I'm wondering if anti-prostitution laws could come into play here? After all, neither Sexy Babe nor Sexy McSexgod is having sex because they want to, but because they're getting PAID to.

Although, come to think of it, I doubt the private eye employees actually had sex; for purposes of getting proof-of-infidelity, I'm sure just checking into the motel room or whatever was sufficient.

So? Why would that be illegal. It's not like person on the other side knows that.

It's a weird question. It feels like there would could some sort of 'conspiracy' or something, but what's the conspiracy? Conspiring to have your wife be unfaithful? But if the spouse isn't gonna cheat, then they're not going to cheat. It's not rape in any sense (imo), since supposedly whatever spouse does with the hired agent is consensual, even if based on lies (and as Mo says, if consensual sex based on lies was 'rape', then there'd be a lot more people charged). In the end, it really seems to come down to there not really being any sort of criminality, or even civil action there.

I don't even see how that guy later murdering the lady attaches responsibility to the husband.

It's a gross business, but I dunno. At the end of the day it's all on the person making choices. Don't cheat with the person you meet at the grocery. Doesn't matter how they got there.

There is rape-by-fraud in a few states, but it requires impersonation of a husband*, I believe.

And, of course, there's no case for prostitution because you're paying them for the other 99%. The sex is probably just considered a perq.

Yet couldn't the same argument be used to justify criminal entrapment? At the end of the day it's all about people making choices, don't commit a crime with the guys you think are your friends, no matter how often and how persistently they try talking you into it.

Our FBI has been pumping up its arrest stats by finding losers and goading them into attempting terrorist attacks that haven't a chance in hell of working anyway -- that's great if they just want to brag "Look how many terrorists we're arresting!", worse than useless if they want to actually reduce the number of terrorist attacks that would've happened without the vigilant FBI protecting us. This private eye thing strikes me as being like that.

It's not entrapment, because it's not the government doing it (well and also, adultery isn't a crime. Is it?) but it has the same flavor to me.
I don't think there's anything illegal about it. It's just a scummy thing to do.

Also, people don't go to jail for entrapment, they get out of potential jail time for it.
