From Compensated Dating to Hotel Handjobs Part 3

Men's Cyzo - Original Japanese Date: June 28th, 2013
English Translation Published: March 27th, 2015

Visual Kei rock band loving Japanese woman tells the true story of how she became way more than a groupie and how she funded this expensive habit.

(Translator's note: This post is a continuation of a previous entry.)

 

Things didn't change with her Visual Kei sex friend. Contact from him remained nonexistent and their relationship—if you could even call it that—chilled. Thus, her two year 'relationship' with a rock star that started with her still in high school finally ended.

How did you get your cameraman boyfriend?” I asked to which she replied, “that's a story for another time.

I broke up with him after only 3 months. I still haven't found anyone sufficient to take the place of my Visual Kei sex friend.

There was another big decision H-ko made: she decided to halt her college studies and at the same time quit her job as a hotel escort. She currently works as a receptionist at a medical clinic in the city.

Every day was a continuous drag where I'd find pockets of time to go do a customer at a hotel and I just eventually smashed into a brick wall of reluctance.

Becoming a medical center receptionist felt to H-ko like it was her first proper job. Being an enjo kousai-partaking Japanese schoolgirl, she never had the opportunity to work a 'normal' part time job such as at a convenience store or a fast food chain.

The pay certainly is different. Hotel escorts get paid daily whenever they elect to 'clock in' whereas a proper job like a receptionist is only granted one payday a month and for H-ko, that amounted to a paltry 200,000 yen after taxes (approximately $2,000USD) (Translator's note: that's about average for a full-time job in Japan at the entry level. What's more, in spite of working full-time, she almost certainly was not an official employee thus missing out on certain key benefits and could be let go at almost any time). The shift in job responsibilities from escort to desk-work also made for extreme adjustments in her lifestyle...

“...I actually have also been working at a handjob parlor since October...

Oops. Well, the reason is H-ko moved on from a fetish in Japanese Visual Kei to one of anime.

I had a gap to fill after getting over Visual Kei and it could not remain empty for long.

She may not be a fixture at live houses anymore, but now H-ko frequently attends anime events in their place and has no regrets about spending a good chunk of change on works from her favorite artists—sometimes in multiples. She'd also visit areas that her favorite anime productions were based off of regardless of the effort it took to get there. Thus, her pay from her clinic employment was nowhere near sufficient.

H-ko enjoys her secondary job as a handjob assistant. The hours are still up to her and she has a kind and dedicated customer base. She also does not desire to become the best at hand service. All she really wants is to have enough money in her anime war chest to support her pricey hobby. With that, her days are filled with receptionist duties in the afternoon and gripping rods in the evening.

I asked her if she had a boyfriend at the moment, but she mentioned at her age, neither serious dating nor marriage are things she has much interest in.

My Visual Kei relationship burned me out.

Sex with her vocalist partner was something she enjoyed greatly, but in general, lovemaking is something H-ko does not have much passion for. Was she still looking for love?

Looking for love? Not really, though I would like one of these (she showed me a picture of a human body pillow on her phone).

Those pillows don't come cheap. In fact, they start at around 10,000 yen (approximately $100USD) which also happens to be around the same price as a handjob.

Mikako Kikuchi was born on March 17th, 1977 in Morioka, Iwate Prefecture. Between the ages of 21 and 29, she worked as a cabaret club hostess, telephone sex operator, and an AV actress. She now writes for a living.

 

(Translator's note: H-ko sounds like a bonafied otaku. Take note that that term does not just apply to anime, but it can simply mean having an intense passion for anything. First it was the Visual Kei and now anime. Some years down the line it'll probably be something else. Who knows? Perhaps she'll gravitate towards being the best handjob provider in town and eventually move on to performing in Japanese AV.)
