Japanese Female Executives Paying Up To $50,000 For One Night With a "Male Geisha"

This reads like one of those many, many media stories which is basically nothing but hype and bullshit. They figure because a story is about something trivial and frivolous like sex, dating, or the War in Iraq, there's no point digging too far to confirm it.

But I guess something like this must be going on at least sometime.

A feller can dream, though:

At first glance, the man and woman at the nightclub look like any other couple on a date. He flirts and pours champagne. She looks at him and laughs.

This isn't a date, though. It's business.

The woman, a successful executive, has joined a growing number of professional women in Japan in forking out from $1,000 to $50,000 a night for male companionship.


"I give women things that men normally don't do, like complimenting their appearance," says one host, 24-year-old Yunosuke, who only goes by his single host name. "I make women happy."

And they make him happy: Yunosuke says he earned more than $200,000 last year, enough to let him visit a salon once a day to have his hair dyed and blow-dried.

"Women see us as one of their accessories," he says. "They like to wear nice things, so I try to look prettier for them all the time."

Prettier? Shyah, let's see how "pretty" you are, bub.

Oh. Ohhhhhh.

How sad is it for us guys to realize that when a woman feels like spending $50,000 on the man of her dreams she spends it on a chick?
