|In fact, this is far from the general Japanese' behavior or sense of worth.|
"I took a room in a love hotel and phoned the call girl service. I was more interested in seeing what was going on than getting my rocks off. I asked them to send me a woman in her 70s who had big breasts that hadn't gone droopy," a 25-year-old man we'll call Kei tells Weekly Playboy (9/10).
Over the past couple of years, skyrocketing numbers of middle aged or elderly women from their 50s to their 70s have started selling sex to people like Kei.
Kei's call girl stood at 148 centimeters tall, weighed in at 68 kilograms and turns 71 next month. One of her seven grandchildren is the same age as her client.
"She told me to call her Kiyoko, asked if I'd like to have a shower with her and reminisced about the days when her C-cup boobs used to be much bigger. She talked about stuff that any woman would talk about," Kei recounts for the men's weekly. "She asked me if I wanted a kiss and when I told her I did, she suddenly shoved her tongue down my throat."
Kei started off with a 69, followed by some lateral slide action. His second round started when Kiyoko took out her teeth and serviced him orally, but he was too concerned about her body odor to finish the job.
Makiko is a 67-year-old call girl who works in the Uguisudani district of Tokyo's Taito-ku.
"Most of the customers I get are young guys. I think the youngest was a student of 18. He'd come and visit me once or twice a month and tell me how happy he was to see me," the elderly lady of the night tells Weekly Playboy. "We did it six times in one 60 minute session."
An adult entertainment industry source has ideas about why elderly prostitutes have become popular in Japan during recent years.
"It's easy enough to understand why elderly men like those whose wives have died would seek out a woman of the same generation. But you also have to take into account the boom among older, married prostitutes. It started about five or six years ago, focusing on women in their 30s or 40s who serviced men looking for relaxation or therapeutic care," the source tells Weekly Playboy. "But once the services became commercialized, the relaxation aspect of their services disappeared. That's where it came time to step in for the really old women, who dealt with their customers with a kindness approaching the way adults look after children."
Old prostitutes seem to have captured their share of the sex market, hooker, line and sinker.
"Kiyoko brought some iced tea for me to drink and she'd pat me on the head when we kissed," a starry eyed Kei recalls for Weekly Playboy. "She actually gave me a discount, saying that I should use the money to buy myself some lunch. It was just as though my grandma had given me some pocket money. The more I talked to her, the more I wanted to meet up with her."
