Japan has the latest in sleazy business opportunities: professional seducers.
And before you say to yourself, "Hey, isn't a 'professional seducer' a whore?", well, think again pal. Let's let these ladies' employer speak for them:
Kyoko’s work, Tomiya emphasises, is not prostitution, as no money is handed over. She earns a basic salary of £2,000-2,500 a month, plus bonuses when a case is successful, which they usually are. She can earn up to £5,000 a month, has her own apartment and a boyfriend who thinks she’s a secretary. She’s never been threatened by clients. In any case, “I know the bodyguard is nearby.” As to whether she feels sorry for her victims or guilty at deceiving them, “It’s my job. I keep my feelings separate.”So, clearly not prostitutes: a john knows what he's getting in to, while these ladies manage to make prostitution look like an honest day's work.
