Over at Jack’s, there have been a series of articles related to the rise of the amateur sex industry. In one of them, the conversation was going such that I posted,
It is as if they were geishas
These women charge money to create customized content for the fellas. What types of content? It might be sexual in nature, or it might be what amounts to a pen pal, or something in between. The question is, how much is have a lady pen pal worth? Or perhaps, how much is having a lady pen pal who works to be the pen pal that you want her to be worth?
Naturally enough, it depends on the man and his requirements. However, I am betting that it can be worth a good bit. Sometimes men want a friend that they can count on, one that they can open up to, one that they can trust. One that is not a possible threat. Perhaps somebody that you meet online can’t fulfill the last requirements, but other they might.
The Japanese Admiral Yamomoto had a regular geisha. He visited from time to time. She listened to what he wanted to say, affirmed what he was saying, performed household function and generally made him feel comfortable. Being so career driven, he had no time for a wife, and his true devotion was to the navy. This was a substitute, one that was accepted a legitimate in Japan.
Is there something comparable is the West? Not formally. Probably there are some fellas who have ladies that they lean on, with the fellas providing gifts and the like. Perhaps the market for such a thing has never been big enough to create something legitimately.
Back to these modern day pen pals. It really should not be that difficult for a lady to figure out what the customer wants, then package up the product. Just listen, think, figure out what to do, then respond appropriately when needed. This is perhaps about some of the easiest money around if you can cultivate such a customer. Or am I misreading this? You tell me.
Exit question: Is doing this moral?
