Geisha


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?

    This is the future of the west.

    Men have detatched and have little interest in long term provisioning. Economies are entering hard times, depression. Large groups of men and women who are not the 20% are going to be forced into singleness for all of their 35-65s.

    Many women post wall do not have the skills\jobs to support themselves until retirement. Many men do not have the 20% to be desireable but because of self focus are economically comfortable.

    Social supports like siblings, extended family are fractured so the extended family living arrangement is gone.

    The solution?
    Men women sharing resources to live comfortably but without the romantic, family ties.

    The housekeeper who tends house for the confirmed bachelor common in the late 1800s, early 1900s..

    The girlfriend experience\giesha that pretends but is a formal honourable business transaction.

    The legal and accepted hooker. Simple, clean sexual transaction as needed.

    Women for the most part cannot do the pure corporate grind as sinletons for 40 years, 25-65 no matter what feminism says. They want to be part of a social unit. But men do not trust them on a social level.

    The social contract is broken.

    So the answer is a business contract.

    Focus here and everywhere is the pre wall and immediate post wall periods
    The 20 year period mid twenties to mid forties.

    But there is an equal 20 year period that must be addressed. 45-65 retirement.

    What does society do with large groups of bachelors and spinsters in these groups?

    How to incentive them to continue working, being good citizens, being part of society when they have no family, no meaningful work, no human interaction?

    Large groups spending two decades dispondent, discarded, without hope? Abandon any animal and see what it does? It either goes mad, goes aggressive or lays down to die.

    Society cannot have this in large numbers. It will find a solution.

    The natural evolution will be to form new units but at arms length.
    Based not on mutual need like prehistory to 1900, not based on love like 1900 to 1970s, not based on hedonism\free love like 1970s to present.

    Based strictly on business relationship play acting as social.
    I trust my work associates because it is in our mutual best interests.
    Do I emotionally like them? Irrelevant.

    That is what the next base unit of society. A small business group.

    Both sexes are fine in the 20s to 40s. Those decades are full of establishing whatever the lifestyle is. The CC, the becoming successful at work, the making mark on the world.

    The peak performing years. This can replace social bonds by achievement or pleasure.

    But once one plateaus? When tomorrow will not be better than today. When the body tires?
    When the sparkle of the pursuit becomes the grind?

    Forget even the baby clock etc.

    The day when you realize, I don’t want to do this anymore? But I have a decade or more to retirement or the home? Women how do you suck it up and do your corporate job? Men how do you suck it up and stay part of society?

    At this point being alone will be intolerable. Socially and economically.

    The sexes will gravitate to what biologically are designed for. The programming cannot overcome forever. But the biology will not overcome the mistrust and jadedness caused by the decades of ecperience. So the answer will be some compromise of the biological need to form units against the emotional detatchment of experience.

    The playacting model.

  5. I knew some girls who worked in the modern equivalent of the geisha industry, ‘snack bars.’ Lonely men buy very expensive drinks and have someone to talk to. Apparently a lot of the job is listening to old men talk about their operations.
    At the top level hostess (and host) clubs, charm and wit are even more vital than beauty. The highest earners always know the perfect thing to say in each situation. That’s the art.

    To whom does one turn when the U.S. Supreme Court fails to support / enforce the U.S. Constitution in the Presidential Election? When the top provider of solutions in the land fails to act, what options are left to enforce the “we are a people of laws” mandate? Seems to be no options, other than just accepting that we are not really a nation of laws. Or revolution.

    These are the questions that have been on my mind for the last few days. Now I read horseman’s very good narrative upthread. He seems to be talking in the same general ballpark: What options are left to enforce the social contract when too many women believe they should be free to behave however they want and bear no personal consequences for the fallout?

    I’m doing some work and listening to a playlist and this song comes up. I’m not really paying attention until a couple of the lyrics grabbed me. Bob Dylan. Written in 1967. Could have been written last week. When there’s too much of nothin’ (no enforcement of laws or the social contract), no one has control.

    Too much of nothin’ can make a man feel ill at ease
    One man’s temper might rise, while the other man’s temper might freeze.
    In the days of long confessions, we can not mock a soul
    When there’s too much of nothin’, no one has control.

    Say hello to Valerie, say hello to Marion,
    Send them all my salary, on the waters of oblivion.

    Too much of nothin’ can make a man abuse a king
    He can walk the streets and boast like most but he don’t know a thing.
    It’s all been done before, it’s all been written in the book.
    But when it’s too much of nothin’, nobody should look.
    Say hello to Valerie, say hello to Marion,

    Send them all my salary, on the waters of oblivion.
    Too much of nothin’ can turn a man into a liar

    It can cause some man to sleep on nails, another man to eat fire.
    Everybody’s doin’ somethin’, I heard it in a dream
    But when it’s too much of nothin’, it just makes a fella mean.

    So – something to take our minds off of the godawful foolishness of the moment – and put our minds on the fact that such foolishness existed to inspire the writting of this song in the early 1960’s and before.

    Good to see you Ton!
    -Funny story, the last couple of weeks I have been physically exhausted and I couldn’t figure out why…looked into my log book and low and behold, I doubled my tonnage in two weeks time without any ramp up! Went from about 10k lbs/week to 20K lbs/week! Shit adds up quick when you pull 3×5 deadlifts!

    I’ve been in a hole all this week, couldn’t figure out why, until last night I realized this drama with Crazy really started in earnest on Trump’s inauguration night, 4yrs ago, when in front of the kids she said “Lets get a online divorce and be done with it”. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Should have done it then, but oh well.

    I’ve been fighting for 4 damn years, first to save her and the marriage, then to save my kids, finally to save myself, and I’m weary of fighting.

    There is no more fight left in me, but I will solider on because I don’t know any other way. I will come out on the other side of this stronger I know but damn this crucible is HOT.

    All the political drama is just a condiment on the shit sandwich I’m having to consume on the daily, I’m ready for all of it to be done.

    And to Farm Boy’s question, I don’t know the morality of it, but providing a service for a fee is just, and if all a woman can provide is a ‘pen pal’ service to eat, than that’s all she’s good for. She will have no family to carry on her line, and that bad apple will die out. Good riddance.

    I think that if you take a closer look, you will see that she had those tendencies right from the start. They may not have been as obvious or numerous back then. But the ones that were out there were overlooked.

    Why were they overlooked?

    In my case, the sex was decent.

    Those tendencies were her mother. Not in. However, my wife-to-be convinced me that she was different. And she was (for 3 unmarried years)…for long enough to get married (marriage 2 years, no kids).

    If I had to guess I’d say that it’s partly down to the fact that she changed job around the time of the marriage. Her ex-colleagues knew me and liked me, her new colleagues never met me but I suspect poisoned her against me (female working environment; they didn’t like the pretty young new woman, they decided to take her down). Her fallback role model was her mum.

    Sadly for her planned future, I was nothing like her dad (decent guy but deep blue pilled soy who worshipped his wifey). My wife was utterly shocked when, after laying out how the marriage would work like her parent’s, I said that we were getting divorced.

    I told her before we got married not to be like her mother because I wasn’t like her father…I guess that she didn’t believe me. I’m a very jokey person until I’m not. I wasn’t joking about that at all.

    horsemanbombadil wrote Independent singleton and on demand date\sexual partner.

    This cannot be a stable situation without a change in laws.
    I saw a recent case, I think it was in Ontario, Canada. The man and woman had a LTR. Both had houses and they did not live together. I think they did regularly slept over at the other person’s house however, similar to many dating relationships; whether that is moral or not is another issue.
    When the relationship ended, the idiot judge ruled that they were common law spouses, despite neither having a formal marriage ceremony, nor living together, nor (I think) having any joint financial assets such as a bank account.

    So, if a man without a wife regularly employs the same prostitute/hooker/sugar baby/harlot/whatever, if the business relationship lasts long enough to qualify for the common-law spouse in his legal jurisdiction, he is taking a massive risk.

    He would need to have a contact at a group or agency, with the expectation of rotating a new woman in and the prior woman out, every few months. This would be emotionally less satisfying. But with rotating in a new woman on a regular basis, maybe he could continue to have youthful partners, which would be more sexually satisfying for some men.
    There might even be a risk if he rotates in the same woman again later. First Ms. A, then Ms. B, then Ms. C, and then Ms. A again. Some idiot judge could decide to add the two “tours of duty” for Ms. A together to achieve the time limit needed for common-law marriage, despite there being a 5.5 month break in the middle where he was having sex with two other women. He would need to take in a new (to him) woman every couple months, and never see the prior women again. Oh, and hope that none of those prior women lie about the length of the “relationship”; maybe keep proof of the start of each new “relationship”?
    What a mess. We cannot even have geishas in this society.

    At this point being alone will be intolerable. Socially and economically.

    I can’t comment for women.
    But for men I do not think this is a problem. He can work enough to provide for himself, pay off his own debts, and save for his own retirement.
    For entertainment, he can get NetFlix for $10-20 a month, and a pornography subscription for likely about that amount too.
    For socialization, he can find a group of friends to play games with / golf with / ski with.

    One reason to pay a woman to act is that with a regular paycheque that they need to earn, the worker has a continuing motivation to be decent to you. Apparently unlike your wife — very unfortunately.
    I suspect many divorced men would say, if it was legally possible, that it would have been better to pay a long-term prostitute to stay with him, to be loyal to the paycheque, and to cheerfully give him regular sex, than to have married.

    I was extrapolating several years out. With the now structural unemployment of a vast swath of the population, much of it female work e.g. hospitality, government will not be able to support them.

    Families dont exist. Men wont take them in. Society will need something done.

    The natural extrapolation is them doing what they are biologically good at; sex, homemaking, companionship. But men wont be providers in a trust situation for generations. So laws and acceptance will get there in time.

    Society sees men not marrying because of bullshit courts. Society does the ontario ruling for paid companions and men will bail on that too. Until it finds a way to create a self supporting unit of some kind.

    Eventually society will learn you cannot force men to do squat. Withdrawing our abilities has been shown to work. And men are stioc. Support these women thru X!! Uh no thanks.Men will live in caves before they pay a bachelor tax etc.

    We can do without longer than womenz(or governments) can stay solvent.

    On Tuesday the Welsh Government said it had been notified of an issue affected a small number of swabs on Friday, January 15.

    The affected swabs had been shipped into Wales from manufacturer COPAN between November 18 and December 14.

    According to Public Health Wales the swabs affected posed “little or no risk to public health” but may have affectedthe accuracy of a small proportion of test results leading to false positives.

    A celebrated German base jumper has died after his parachute failed to open during a jump from a cliff in Portugal.

    Dominik Loyen, who was known to post footage of his jumps on social media, captured his final attempt in the coastal town of Nazaré on camera.

    An investigation has been launched into the incident at the 330ft-high rock face, police told German media.

    The video shows the 50-year-old jumping with another person from the cliff.

    But, while the other jumper’s parachute opens, Mr Loyen’s does not appear to and he falls to rocks below.

    Rescuers were unable to revive him, German tabloid Bild reported.

    Mr Loyen was an experienced instructor in base jumping, an extreme sport that involves leaping from fixed objects with a parachute.

    Mr Loyen had previously considered giving up the activity, he told English-speaking German newspaper Deutsche Welle in 2014.

    “Yes, I had some thoughts about taking a break, or giving it up completely, when a good friend of mine had a fatal accident,” he said.

    “But then you deal with it, and somehow you have to do what you find fun. You worry about it and then decide to carry on anyway and you swear not to make the same mistakes.”

    Ame, a cousin of mine has had 2 covid tests so far, and will have a third before she is released from quarantine here.

    The test she had in Victoria Australia before flying to NZ was more unpleasant than the test in quarantine here. She doesn’t know, there might be different requirements in different countries re the procedure or it might be different techniques.

    One of the great guitarists. Terry Kath One of the great bands. Worldwide fame. But still needed to live on the edge. All or nothing.

    From Wikipedia:

    Kath began to play with his guns. He spun his .38 revolver on his finger, put it to his temple, and pulled the trigger. The gun was not loaded. Johnson warned Kath several times to be careful. Kath then picked up a semi-automatic 9-mm pistol and, leaning back in a chair, said to Johnson, “Don’t worry about it … Look, the clip is not even in it.” His last words were, “What do you think I’m gonna do? Blow my brains out?”[36] To assuage Johnson’s concerns, Kath showed Johnson the empty magazine. Kath then replaced the magazine in the gun, put the gun to his temple and pulled the trigger. Apparently unbeknownst to Kath, the semi-automatic had a round in the chamber. He died instantly from the gunshot,[36] eight days shy of his 32nd birthday.

    Pretty good live version, for those who like this kind of thing. No sound engineering or overdubs. Just raw talent. Nothing but musicians and their voices and their instruments. Terry Kath on guitar.

    Yeah, I called it on my blog, in my new years predictions:

    However, our leftist media, which has been religiously preaching doom and gloom for four years straight, will usher in a new era of gilded-turds. “Everything is Awesome!” will become their new mantra. We will be told that everything is getting better. However, since our adversaries “Never let a good crisis go to waste” we can be sure that some crises will arise to justify their taking away more of our freedoms, presumably for our own good.

    It was kind of a no-brainer since the media has done this every time a Democrat has taken over from a Republican for as long as I can remember, and they always do the exact reverse when a Republican replaces a Democrat.
