Life no bed of roses for ‘flower snake’gigolos Shukan Taishu 12/8 By Takeshi Ito
“We will send you a man of your choice when you are lonely or when you want to release a little stress.”
“Our male staff members will satisfy your every need.
Our men will travel to your homes,hotels and all over the country.
We also offer all-night and VIP courses.”
You might think these raunchy ads belong in ladies'comics.
True,they speak to sexually frustrated women,but they are now found every now and then in mail boxes in Tokyo's nicest neighborhoods,like Denenchofu.
According to Shukan Taishu,housewives in these exclusive residential districts are now making call-boy shops one of the most lucrative unknown businesses in the city.
The magazine bases its report on the successful operation of a 30-gigolo-strong venture business company,“Taboo and Hanahebi(Flower Snakes).”
“My top client at the moment is this 42-year-old lady who lives in Seijo.
She is married to a company executive,”offers President Koji Sato,who not only manages the company but also sets an example for others by practicing as a part-time lover.
“I don't know why,but she likes me.
This lady asks for me twice a month.
She is a bit old,but her body is ripe.”
Another Taboo and Hanahebi member,Joji,tells Shukan Taishu that most men envy what he is doing,but working as gigolo is not a bed of roses.
The 28-year-old recalls how difficult it was to satisfy a 36-year-old housewife who asked him to peep at her while she was playing with herself,then ordered him to stick a vibrator up her anus and begged him to spread her legs wide and tie her up with a bathrobe belt.
“Those women can choose us,but we can't choose them,”points out the hard-working Joji.
“Once picked,you have to do your best.
Remember that your clients are not always your type.
And they are greedy to the bone.
They would never say they are satisfied unless you drive them to ecstasy.”
Shukan Taishu reminds us that gigolos can't refuse a client,no matter how tough their requests may be.
The magazine cites one case in which a 70-year-old female client asked a Taboo and Hanahebi employee to make love to her in front of her impotent husband.
The senior couple reportedly forced the poor young dude to make love to her for three hours until the woman finally reached a climax.
But honest guys can get lucky.
Another Taboo and Hanahebi member Toru, 23,shares this unforgettable experience with Shukan Taishu:
“I once received a request from a girl who wanted to lose her virginity.
She was a rich girl living in Hiroo and attending a famous women's high school.
She got impatient and called us after finding all of her classmates had lost their virginity.”
Toru recounts to the magazine that he massaged this shy girl for three hours to relax her tense body before making her dream come true.
“I think I did OK because she called for me several more times.”(TI)
