CNN writes about the Geisha Guys of Japan, debonair lads who can be hired for an evening of sparkling conversation.
At various clubs in Japan, women will pay top dollar to be lavished with the (non-sexual) attentions of men with blow-dried, dyed hair and good manners. To be fair, this isn't exactly a new trend, so we're hesitant to call it "the latest craze" - the Guardian had basically the same article in 2004. Still, we're happy for any look in into the world of Japanese escort clubs.
