Shukan Asahi 8/30 By Anthony J. Bryant 1991,08,26
Bali in Indonesia is one of the vacation spots beloved of Japanese OLs and college students with money to spend and time to kill.
For the past two years,there have been stories about Japanese women buying the company of guys they meet in Bali,and Shukan Asahi checks out the rumors.
It seems that some men in Bali are just as willing to go along with the deal as the Japanese women,and their objectives are not to nanpa(politely put,“Take advantage of”) these women;it is economic -- this is their job in fact(and it doesn't seem to matter if the partner is a woman or a man).
One of the young“beach boys” (as they're described) explains what's involved:"First we just have fun; we eat,go to the disco...the girl pays for everything,of course.”
He continues:“They know we don't have any money,so they don't say anything....Sex?
Well,sometimes it goes real well and only takes a day to get,sometimes it can take several.”
A beach boy does sometimes have to ask a woman for money.
If he's asked what the money's for,he will just shrug,say he doesn't know,and ask again.
Beach boys say they can clear up to 30,000 yen in a good month.(AJB)
