Yokohama’s finest recently arrested Tamako Boku for soliciting prostitution. She was nabbed while on the street adjacent to several love hotels, offering to show an officer in plainclothes a good time.

Ms. Boku, age 73, has a prior record. What amazed the authorities was not that she was still engaging in the world’s oldest profession at such a venerable age, but the fact that she appeared to be at least 20 years less than her actual age.

Nikkan Gendai (Oct. 20) finds this phenomena interesting. Do women in the sex trade — despite the hard lives they lead — actually appear younger than their age? Of course, to make themselves more appealing to males they apply cosmetics and wear more revealing clothes. But at least some people are also convinced that regular sexual activity is responsible for their more youthful appearance.

“It’s true,” nods physician Arata Samon. “Female hormones help women regain their youth. When women engage in sex, their ovaries secrete more estrogen, and this rejuvenates their blood vessels. The supply of oxygen and nutrients is activated, restoring the sheen to their skin, and giving their voices better timbre. This also makes cosmetics work better at beautifying the skin.”

It’s no old wives’ tale, says Dr. Samon, that older women who engage in frequent sex can rejuvenate their appearance. Of course aging women do not necessarily find satisfaction with male partners they don’t like, so it’s probably best for them to stick with their own husbands.

“So you should praise her, for example by telling her how nice she looks. Just saying that will help release additional secretions of estrogen,” he advises.

So come on, gals — take a cue from an elderly Yokohama hooker and rekindle your love life. You’ve got nothing to lose but your wrinkles! (K.S.)
