Hooker housewives dispense tender, loving care to homesick Johns

In 1994, a company called the “Otetsudai-san Haken Center” was established in Tokyo’s Otemachi district and immediately found booming demand for its services.

The firm, relates Nikkan Gendai (Oct. 24), targeted tanshin funin salarymen, company staff assigned to jobs in Tokyo where they were not accompanied by their families.

The center would dispatch housewives, dressed in maid uniforms, to call on the residences of these temporary bachelors and for 30,000 yen to dispense two hours of housework, including cleaning and laundry, which culminated in a vigorous tumble atop the bed.

Some 80 percent of the customers were so enthralled with this down-home treatment that they called the maids back for repeat performances, and in its first year of business the center pulled in 70 million yen. From its second year, it added a new service to the equation: finger-lickin’ home style cookin’ by ladies who could dish it out in more ways than one.

Surveys of satisfied customers included write-in remarks like, “Great stuff! Both the food and the okusan were yummy.”

With the tasty new service, the company really began raking it in and revenues shot past the 100 million mark.

But then the unchi hit the fan. The wives of the customers, noticing their husbands were returning home for family visits increasingly infrequently, became suspicious. Several times the wives paid surprise calls on their hubbies’ abodes and caught them flagrante delicto in the arms of a maid — upon which they went on the attack, meting out physical violence to the home-wrecking wench.

To make matters worse, the center’s three most popular employees submitted their resignations, informing their employer that they intended to marry their johns. It seems these female staff were married to men assigned abroad or long-distance truckers who were always on the road, and they craved regular male companionship.

The center’s remaining staff, alas, proved to be lousy cooks, and management was flooded with complaints over their tasteless, warmed-over microwaved cuisine — which has got to be some sort of historical first for the sex industry.

Meanwhile with the economy in sharp decline, fewer company staff were transferred to unaccompanied posts, and the demand for such services dried up. The center called it quits in 1998. (K.S.)
