Sugar daddies dumping sour school girls for sweet Asians
Shukan Jitsuwa 12/4 By Takeshi Ito
Most people still believe high school girls monopolize the enjo kosai(dollars for dates) market.
Not any more.
The popularity of such girls is nosediving like Japanese stock prices these days.
Shukan Jitsuwa reports that a growing num-ber of mistress-seekers are opting for women from other Asian countries.
The magazine tries to find out what they offer and high school girls don't.
According to Shukan Jitsuwa,women from such countries in Asia as the Philippines,Thailand and South Korea are gaining favor with sugar daddies because of their respect for men and sweet manners.
“Until two years ago.
I dated high school girls on an enjo kosai basis,”a 30-year-old man tells the mag-azine.
“Every time we went out,this girl asked me to buy her clothes and acces-sories.
In those days,I used to spend about 30,000 yen per date.
But she never made love to me - not even once.
Despair,suspicion...and regret were all that I got from the relationship.”
The guy,now spending his disposable income on a Filipina,says Asian women are a hundred times better.
“They grew up in poor countries,”he rea-sons.
“They express their appreciation with their entire bodies when I give them tiny things like a 100 yen chocolate.
Giving them financial aid gives me peace of mind and a sense of satisfaction.
Sex is not my only goal.
As long as they stay by my side and smile at me,I'm happy.”
Researcher Kiyotaka Nakura tells Shukan Jitsuwa that trading house and other company employees who speak fluent English tend to start enjo kosai after picking up a woman at so-called prostitution bars or meeting a hooker on the back streets of Tokyo's Kabukicho or Shin-Okubo districts.
But most other monolingual Japanese men start frequenting ordinary bars staffed by foreign bar hostesses out of pure curiosity and end up totally hooked.
“There are many such bars in places like Saitama,Chiba and Ibaraki,”informs Nakura.
“At these bars, monolingual Japanese men discover the pure hearts of Asian women and become their regular customers overnight.”
Shukan Jitsuwa reports many of these men soon find a prospective partner at their haunts and gradually approach her with broken English and a sincere attitude.
In the magazine's view,most of the Asian bar hostesses welcome the men with open arms,because marrying a Japanese is a status symbol among their kind and it guarantees economic security.
It is natural for these men to stop wasting money on high school and cabaret club girls once they get to know Asian women because they know how to treat men with respect,explains Shukan Jitsuwa.
The growing popularity of Asian mistresses is good news for real estate agents who are having a hard time filling one-room apartment.
According to Shukan Jitsuwa,many married men choose to rent a room as their“love nest” after falling for a sweet Asian girl.
“Men who rent a room for their Asian girl-friends are increasing in number in the suburbs,”notes a real estate company president in Chiba.
“I think those men go straight to their nest after finishing their work,enjoy dinner and sex and then go home.
I'm sure Asian mistresses are one of the reasons behind the increasing number of sexless couples.”(TI)
