So where's the add-on option where the girl calls the customer "Onii-chan"? Razz

This is a surprising omission. Also, I imagine this happens in a somewhat lit room. They should add price multiplier depending on how dark the lights are. Definitely should have "snuggly rest behind the woman" fee to encourage dry humping.

You could get a prostitute for less (depending on how long) and get more than just a nap.


Some of us have standards, good sir.

Now why pay all that money for a platonic relationship, when you can just use your left hand?

Perfectly free & you don't even have to leave your house! ^__^

While this is not prostitution in the legal sense, some do define prostitution as someone who sells their body, regardless of whether it is for sexual intercourse. This is because such activities involved do not require any actual skill. One must simply be there.

Then again, that kind of definition is odd because there are people who claim that it does require some level of skill to be a prostitute, but I'm not going to dig too deeply into that. Laughing

I think what might actually blur the line is that the clients can pay to preform acts on the girls and have acts preformed on them. Although these aren't sexual acts, and no, this is still not prostitution, it still feels as though it is designed in the same manner as prostitution.

I feel that it is disturbing, manly because it preys on this idea that otaku are so desperate for female companionship that they will pay to simply sleep beside a woman. Even with an escort, one may actually engage in activities that one would do on a date (dinner, dancing, theater, etc.). This is just . . . napping.

It's . . . odd.

Huh. This is kind of odd. I find it more sad and depressing than creepy though.
