Huge advertisement of “Valentine’s Day Event!”  can be seen at the top page of a women’s sex service. If you give a male therapist with chocolate, he will give you an extra 30 minutes for free! (Tirol Chocolates are also acceptable). Since the market rate for women’s sex services is 10,000 yen per hour, a 20-yen Tirol Chocolate will save you 5,000 yen.

One would think that the men working here would make a lot of money with such a system but it is far from reality. Some of the male therapists in the sex industry for women are working in an exploitative structure that is surprising even for a black company.

The sex industry for women is based on “on-site sexual services. In other words, most of them are like a gender-reversed version of “call girl”. Of course, the sexual intercourse is prohibited, and one can just enjoy a sexual massage using oil.

The fee is usually 20,000 yen for 120 minutes. Unlike adult entertainment services for men, most of them do not offer short courses such as 40 minutes, and they also recommend the use of more than 120 minutes. Women may place more emphasis on the process of sexual services, massage, and communication than men, and they “enjoy” longer hours more.

The male therapist receives about half of the fee paid by the customer. It is said that some establishments pay higher salaries to popular male staff who make huge sales.

The trap is that “half of the customer’s payment is the male staff’s share.” Stores sometimes offer discounts to new customers. “New customers only! 60 minutes free!” New therapists only! Half off the course fee!” — these are some of the list when a male-oriented brothel runs such a campaign and the store’s share is reduced and the employees would still be paid their normal salaries.

But in the case of ours, we don’t get paid. We only get exactly half of what the customer paid. For example, if a customer booked a 90-minute session and used a 60-minute free service coupon, the fee is 5,000 yen, and my share is only 2,500 yen. I wonder what I am working in the sex industry for. I seriously regret that I entered this industry without doing my homework.

Hajime (pseudonym, 21) has been a therapist for six months. Hajime is an active vocational school student. He have a scholarship but does not have enough money for living expenses, so he knocked on the door of a women’s sex store. Hajime, who says he wants to become an actor, comes to work almost every day between classes.

“I’m honestly not good at making sales via Twitter DMs and the like,” he said. That’s why it’s so hard for me to get real money. I have to contact a client every day, and if they come once a month, I honestly don’t have the patience to do it. If I had to do this, I might as well have gone quietly and worked at a boys’ bar for about 1,500 yen an hour.

But since I paid 70,000 yen for the initial registration fee, I thought it would be a waste of money, so I kept on doing it. But after the Valentine’s Day event, I finally made up my mind to quit. I was really disgusted with the amount of free work they were making me do.

At Hajime’s stores, customers can enjoy 30 minutes of free service for a 20 yen Tirol Chocolate, and another 60 minutes of free service on White Day as a “payback” service. The total of 90 minutes of free service is quite hard to beat.

The female sex industry is currently in a buyer’s market. The number of therapists has increased, so you need to have a lot of customers who are willing to be your regular customers to make money. It is also easy to be replaced by a new staff because of reasons like “You are seldom contact me” and so on. The more you work, the more notifications of contacts you want to get.

I think those who are making money as a therapist in the sex industry for women will probably be successful no matter where they go. It’s really a steady process. I used to have a lot of fun with girls, but since I started this job, I don’t have the energy for that anymore.

Therapists in the sex industry for women are expected to take care not only of their customers’ bodies but also their mental health. And if they are not paid well, they will not be able to continue working for long. Although the sex industry for women is a popular trend, if the current situation continues, male therapists may be forced to quit the industry in droves.
