With the sales tax now at a whopping 8% (You think that's high...?) and salaries remaining stagnant, more and more people are considering taking on side-jobs. It may be come as a surprise, but some are even looking into working part time in Japan's always-booming adult business doing some light work. Could there really be job opportunities that pay well and are erotically fun? Let's find out!
Make up to 20,000 yen a month running a blog about nanpa exploits
Traditionally, most people create blogs like this not for monetary gain, but to satisfy their passion. Eventually the need to align with affiliate programs becomes necessary and this is where we meet up with Naoya-san. From writing about 4 entries a month, he nets about 20,000 yen (approx. $200USD) from affiliate sales.
“What's popular are my stories of real street nanpa and I link to pickup sites for my sales. It's important not to deceive my surfers. I'm always clear with pointing out locations and names of landmarks so they can easily look it up.”
Naoya-san let me tag along for one of his nanpa adventures. This time it was in Ginza.
“It's best to hunt down the women who look pretty idle. Look for the ones who don't look like they're in a rush to get somewhere.”
Naoya and I warmed up with these two when the real targets came into focus behind them. He was smooth and fun. He joked about being king of the town and somehow got them to go on an impromptu drinking date with us. It was quick and we got their contact info so I guess my first nanpa outing was a success...?
“It may sound cliched, but slower girls are generally easier to catch. I ended up going all the way with 25 of them last year. However, I had no experience at all 2 years ago aside from a burgeoning interest in nanpa blogs. Thus, if I can do it, so can anyone else.”

On top of making a bit of affiliate side income, one can also experience some bona-fied nanpa. The latter may not be financially positive, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing. After all, the pay may be low, but sex is on the table.
(Translator's note: Foreigners have run nanpa blogs before. In fact, there are entire communities and industries for pickup artists on both sides of the ocean. What would be a novel idea for those who command good levels of Japanese is to create an English-language blog about nanpa in Japan and include detailed guides for finding success on Japanese-language dating sites. This type of bridge-building has not really been erected so now's your chance.)
