What’s the percentage of Japanese women who have experienced sexual jobs?
As far as I know, there are two surveys. One of them was conducted by a foreign media company which targeted girls living in Tokyo at the age of 18 to 23. It said 1 out of 7 had had some experience. I think the number is higher than most people imagine.
The other result by a Japanese agency found 1 out of 13.
According to the surveys, an average of 1 out of 10 women have experienced some kind of sex jobs. If you know ten Japanese women, you’re acquainted with at least one sex worker. I find the number fairly high.
Such stories rarely become public. Men tend to exaggerate love affairs, and women tend to hide ones. I guess the truth will never come to light.
What if you want to know whether a Japanese woman in front of you has been through the sex business?
Here’s the most certain way that I know. Ask her a question: “If you had to sleep with an old and ugly man who you don’t even like, how much money would you ask for?
Amateurs demand an astounding amount of money. I guess the average would be about one million yen. Some even argue one hundred million.
Ex- and active workers insist as little as a one-digit amount. A dozen at the highest. That’s all the more so if they look beautiful. The reason is, they know the reality.
With a very few exceptions, upscale soapland masseuses earn the highest amount of salary among female sex workers in Japan. They make around 30,000 yen for a two-hour session. Three customers mean 90,000.
Although cases vary between exclusive, intermediate and discount sex establishments, ordinary herusu workers earn 20,000 to 30,000 yen a day after serving two or three customers.
Apart from sex clubs, the situation is almost the same. Personal prostitution in Japan is called “warikiri” today. Online dating sites are its breeding ground. The going rate for a warikiri session is 20,000 yen. Fat or old women demand only 10,000 to 15,000.
The price of sex is a lot cheaper than amateur women imagine. The key is whether to know the reality.
This post is about Japan. I don’t know a lot about other countries, but one average session cannot count more than 100,000 yen overseas. So I guess it applies to them to some extent.
