Tokyo trends: Deflation cutting hand-job prices to the bone

Shukan Asahi Geino Sep. 15
It’s a familiar nighttime routine: You are out in Shimbashi, drunk, and the last train has passed. What to do?

While pondering the predicament a young Chinese gal materializes on a nearby corner. “Excuse me, sir?”

Thus begins a survey of quickie sex services from weekly tabloid Shukan Asahi Geino (Sept. 15), which finds that prices are plummeting in the current deflationary environment.

“We can get you a room for 5,000 yen,” she continues.

“Ah, but I’ve only got 3,000 yen,” the crafty writer counters.

In Tokyo’s entertainment areas, below-the-belt services for 5,000 yen are in abundance, but many lucky lads are finding even better deals.

“A hand-job with light body-touching is an appealing package for girls who want to make fast cash,” comments a writer who covers underground businesses. “And for businessmen with tight wallets, it is an economical way to experience sexual pleasure.”

It was assumed that if prices were to fall too low customers would become cautious, but that has not been the case. “The trade has expanded into amateur girls,” the underground writer continues. “You know, to become involved in this business it doesn’t take much effort to recruit clients, and nowadays the competition to offer the lowest prices just keeps getting hotter.”

After finishing up in Shimbashi, the tabloid’s reporter moves over to Shinjuku’s Kabukicho red-light district, where he enters Anpuri-tei. The 20-minute course here runs a mere 2,700 yen and includes a hand service (2,000 yen) and room rental (700 yen).

Asagei’s writer enters a room and picks up the phone. Soon after an 18-year-old with big eyes, similar in appearance to actress Haruka Ayase, appears before him.

Various options are included, such as verbal abuse, blowing, the use of lotion, and panty and bra peeks. However, when time is up, the stroking stops — win or lose. But frankly, are there any losers at this price?

Outfitted in a tank top and pink underwear and seated atop a pillow, she utters a polite “excuse me” before proceeding with the pulling process.

The reporter winds up coming out on top, even vowing a return visit. Should you, dear reader, be interested in a similar experience Anpuri-tei’s number is provided: 03-6233-7499. And tell ’em Shukan Asahi Geino sent ya!
