What is “S8″…Why are women now rushing to register at “dating clubs”?
The reality of Piena, as depicted by a writer who is currently a student at Keio University. 4 years after Reiwa, Kabukicho is now ...... the 27th issue
While the papa activity is thriving among young women when it comes to earning money, the “dating club” is slowly increasing its population in the COVID-19 crisis. You won’t be exposed! Members-only, so you don’t have to worry! and “It’s a members-only club, so you don’t have to worry about being identified!
A dating club is, so to speak, a “members-only date-setting service.” Women register with the club for free, and men can offer dates to women for a membership fee of 50,000 to 500,000 yen. The higher the membership fee, the higher the rank of women you can meet. The contents vary from club to club, but the club also conducts background checks and annual income screening, which gives women the advantage of “getting to know rich, gentlemanly men. From the men’s point of view, it is a risk-free way to play with high-class women.
It sounds convenient for both men and women, but what is the reality? Ayaka (22, pseudonym), who has been in the dating club for two years, tells us about the latest situation.
When you register as a new member, you get a lot of offers at once, and it’s tough if you don’t find a steady daddy. Once the offers stop coming, they almost never come back. That’s why there are a lot of girls who move from one dating club to another, or who have their own businesses such as water business or sex industry. There are also housewives who are just registered with the club. Some of them claim to be directly connected to entertainment agencies and are of a high level, while others say they have a variety of women on their roster and hire almost all of them.
After registering at a dating club, ranks are assigned and setting fees are set in a manner that is not visible to female members. At one popular club, the “type” of woman is then decided upon after consultation. Type A: only dinner is desired,” “Type B: only dinner the first time, and a second date or later if the two are compatible. Type C: There is a possibility of developing a relationship after the first date,” and “Type D: I want to develop a relationship after the first date.
This “relationship” is in other words, sex. Since it is illegal for a dating club to pimp prostitution, the club’s job is to “set up a date. After that, sex is a “free love affair” between a man and a woman.
On the other hand, there are some clubs that do not follow the appearance of “free love.
One club member said, “We send pictures of the girls to the members by e-mail. Holla.”
Hideki (53, pseudonym), who has been a member of the dating club for three years, showed me the screen of his smartphone.
The members-only e-mails not only show their faces, but also their three sizes and hobbies. The dating club I’m registered with is full of model-level cuties, and you see ‘S8’ and ‘S12’ under their pictures. The “S” stands for “setting,” but it’s totally about sex (laughs). Considering that four hours is 80,000 yen, it’s definitely a better deal than high-class sex clubs.
The club is not a lawless place like a daddy’s app, and you are matched with the type of woman you want without any troublesome interactions. In this sense, dating clubs are a form of business that saves men and women the “hassle” of meeting each other. Nevertheless, it is a world where bargaining power is the key, and there are always troubles such as men getting ripped off and women getting ripped off.
