A man was arrested on a charge of electronic distribution of obscene media for profit, after allegedly recording prostitutes as they were having sex and uploaded the videos to the Internet, police in Japan said.

Tokyo police said that they have arrested 43-year-old Masanobu Onoyama, after being accused of recording prostitutes who worked for an escort company and posting the videos to the Internet.

According to the police investigation, Onoyama took at least 19 videos, which show female prostitute giving sexual services, and uploaded them to the Internet.

The videos were recorded without the consent of the women.

The suspect used a smartphone, wristwatch and a hidden camera mounted on a pair of glasses to record the women.

During questioning, Onoyama told investigators that he recorded the women in order to make some extra cash.

Over the past 2 years, the suspect has uploaded a total of 78 adult videos to a file sharing website. During that period, the videos were downloaded 5,700 times and generated sales of 3,500,000 yen ($28,147).
