An interview with a “health” girl, one of the many styles of prostitution popular in Japan, provides some interesting background on this most seedy of professions.
Some explanation might be required about the job of a “health” girl – essentially this is a legally sanctioned style of prostitution which skirts round Japanese laws against selling sex by (ostensibly) banning actual penetrative sex and euphemistically marketing the services as “health” and “massage” related.
“Delivery health” is the better known variant, in which girls are dispatched to customer homes or hotels. Police tolerate such services in return for payments and no sign of trouble.
More detail can be found in the previous articles.
The interview, given by an anonymous health girl to 2ch’s VIP board:
Are there really guys with HIV out there?
Dunno. The girls who do full sex probably have a higher risk of having it I suppose.
You know you can get it through unprotected oral sex?
Well, it’ll be fine. It’s not that transmitted that easily, after all.
Is that you, Miku-chan? Your manners and technique were great!
I’m not Miku!
Does it feel good?
We’re a mat health place, it feels amazingly good! Especially with all the slippery lotion! If I was a man I’d be going there all the time.
Do you think your pay is good considering you spend all day sucking off guys you’ve never before?
It’s OK. It’s good fun, and all the customers are nice people.
What prompted you to become a health girl?
I dropped out of high school and tried all kinds of work as a freeter. I kind of thought I’d try sex work. I wanted the money too.
I’m not brave enough to go to a brothel. Come over, I’ll pay the same!
Try a delivery health outfit?
How old are your patrons?
Really there are all sorts. From 18-year-olds to 70-year-old grandpas.
You health girls are really regular aren’t you?
I don’t know about the other girls, but I go smoothly everyday. I’ve never been constipated in my life!
Will you even service a creepy guy like me?
Sure, if you’re not dirty.
What sort of penises do you like?
I don’t like long ones. Short fat ones are good.
What can your customers do about STD protection? Do you have private relations with the hot guys?
I’m not interested in hot guys so I don’t know. I only look at them as customers.
For the STDs… just go to a clinic regularly? And don’t play around with a lot of different girls? Just pick a favourite and do her.
You’re visiting us at the VIP board at work?
No, today’s my day off.
I got sex with a condom for ¥5,000, and then she gave me free anal afterwards, with a rubber. What do you think?
Health girls who offer sex are a real nuisance to girls who are working properly, aren’t they?
I get asked “can I put it in?” and when I gently refuse they say “but so-and-so let me.”
If you want to make money having full sex you should use a deaikei site…
Which are the most problematic customers?
We’re a mat [inflatable matress] health service, so basically the customer is supposed to be passive, so the ones who want to take a more active role are a problem.
They have to stay still on the mat or they might slide off at is quite slippery, and we don’t want anyone falling. Dirty guys or drunks can be problems as well.
“Health” means no sex and sumata only? Is a rubber essential? Can you negotiate full sex beforehand?
There’s no full sex. It ends with sumata, handjobs or oral. We don’t use condoms at our place. Not for fellatio either. But there seem to be places which do insist on condom usage. There are girls who will do sex too.
Will you go out with a customer who offers you a proper life?
No. I have no interest in customers.
Prostitutes are professional bitches aren’t they?
Indeed… I’ll be sure to use that job description in future.
How much do you have in savings?
My bank statement says ¥783. And I have ¥400 in my purse.
You only have ¥1,000? Hang in there!
Thanks, I’ll keep at it!
Should you say when you’re about to come?
If it looks like you’re ready, I’d prefer if you say.
We’re on a strict time limit, but you can come as much as you like in that time. Although some can only manage once. Things get boring after they are done.
And people having being fellated, please say when you’re on the verge! Because otherwise I get choked…
Do you feel much during work?
I do, I do! It’s slippery and feels good, I always end up coming during sumata!
Prostitutes hide their past from a normal guy and marry him, then end up cheating on him and get divorced. I hear that a lot. It seems once you’ve fallen and become scum, there’s no going back?
Indeed, once a bitch, always a bitch. I never wanted marriage or kids to start with, and after starting work I want them less. Or rather, I mustn’t.
In a 69, can we rim you?
Sure, but to get your mouth there your penis probably won’t reach my mouth!
Do the people around you know what you do?
As you might expect, I haven’t told my parents, but my friends know.
How much do you make?
I only started recently, it should be about 300,000-400,000.
You making about 300,000 a month? Is that enough?
There’s no other part time work which is this easy. If you take care over disease there’s no better work.
You say you are OK telling your friends what you do. It seems more women these days aren’t even ashamed of being prostitutes. It seems the morals of women are really collapsing…
No, as I said I’m not doing anything to be ashamed of, right? But I don’t think I should ever get married or have kids.
Big is better?
Not long ones. Thick ones are nice.
What makes customers happy when you fellate them?
With fellatio? What kind of question is that?
Well, when you take it up to the base a lot are quite happy. And when you clean up with fellatio…
You give tongue kisses to lots of hideous old guys?
Sure I do.
Of your customers, what’s the longest and shortest they lasted?
We’re using mats, so we get changed and go to the bathroom. One time, after I got changed the customer was already hard with his pantsu on, and he came as soon as I touched him. That all took 8 minutes.
For the longest – well, there was a guy who went through an hour long course without coming. At the end I had to just apologise as the time ran out.
How much are you?
Depends on the time slot – from ¥10,000 to ¥15,000 for 50 minutes.
Whores past 30 either parasitise some guy or die, don’t they? Someone who’s OK with selling her body like you isn’t even fit to be called human.
What, you hate prostitutes or something? If prostitution disappeared from the world, sex crimes will increase!
When was your first time?
Second year of middle school, in the public toilet at a park with my boyfriend.
Cowgirl and from behind.
149cm, 50kg, F cup. First time in middle school, likes booze, thoughtless and optimistic. Sorry for being a fatty.
You’ll definitely do paizuri?
A lot of you girls are big. Do you get implants?
Dunno. Some do. Mine are natural.
Don’t you realise you’re nothing more than a sex object?
It’s a job.
Do you get funny customers? Old guys or foreigners or ones who come funny.
Well… I got an 18-year-old kid who came for his first time and was really nervous, he was cute.
And there is a guy in his seventies who is really passionate and was quite hard to satiate. He was saying stuff like “****… you’re beautiful. For us to meet like this must be fate.”
Do you get regular customers?
I only started a month ago but I got one – that old guy, he said “I definitely, definitely come again” with a hot look in his eyes.
Why is it called “health”? Is it healthy?
How would I know?
Have any men who are smooth down there?
He said it was for swimming… the stubble hurt my clitoris when did sumata.
Does semen taste different from man to man?
My ex who liked booze: bitter and strong
My ex who had a sweet tooth: quite sweet
You like SM?
“S” I would try.
Tell me how to become a pimp.
Find some bitches with issues.
What makes you happy you chose this line of work?
When I finish up and collect my pay.
Do most customers do it at a hotel or at home?
We’re a shop so I don’t know about that.
For me, 90% use hotels. Because most of them are married…
What is the biggest penis you’ve encountered? The smallest?
Biggest was the length of a can of coffee. Smallest was only 7cm when erect…
Ever had trouble?
None. The advantage of a shop is that you can call the front desk at any time in any case.
How many people are there with “false phimosis”? [See previous articles]
Quite a lot. Or rather, you hardly ever see anyone who is not like that.
How can I make friends with girls?
The art of conversation.
The usual surreal Japanese preoccupation with upholding bizarre and nonsensical legal arrangements (not allowing sex at a brothel, putting mosaics on the most extreme of pornography, banning 2D porn whilst ignoring 3D porn, etc.) seems rather evident from her irritation at the unreasonableness of her fellow prostitutes actually having sex with clients…
Otherwise, the generally blasé attitude of Japanese prostitutes to sexually transmitted diseases and their seemingly high rates of mental illness seems to suggest customers might be well advised to pursue safer and less sleazy leisure pursuits.
Those interested in learning more about Japan’s vast sex industry may wish to inspect previous interviews – including a pink salon employee, a prostitute, a porn star, schoolgirl pantsu hawkers, delivery health pimps, and even the victim of a maid.
