Japan has weird laws when it comes to adult oriented materials. In manga, the artistic depiction of the sexual violation of a young woman by a demonic, sentient, plant bearing multiple phalluses is quite okay and all is well, just so long as you don't show her vulva or pubic hair. You can show her breasts, that's fine. Just censor that which lies between the upper thighs and the waist.
That said, you know that something weird was up when a manga illustrator was actually arrested for obscenity.
