Look who just made the cover of LA Weekly? That's right, my good friend K-Town - if you can call someone who gets you drunk and then empties your wallet a good friend.
Surprisingly, the articles are quite comprehensive and insightful. Who'da thunk white people could write so well?
The first article covers restaurants and cafes, and provides a pretty extensive list that includes everything from pat-bing-soo to gohm-tang. Click here to check it out.
The second article is the most entertaining, though. As you might've guessed, it's about the nightlife. Having never partied in K-Town before, I found it to be very educational. You can read it by clicking here. (My old waiter at Prive got some major airtime on the piece: One waiter, aptly named Romeo, is especially beloved ... “I’ve talked to girls in New York and Texas, and they’re like, ‘You know Romeo?!’ Guys come here for the girls. The girls come here for Romeo.")
The best part of that article, however, is when the female writer visits a host bar, where women pay a crapload of money to have guys cater to their every whim. Asian women must become really horny bastards when they get older, because I also remember my friend telling me how popular similar he-brothels were in Taiwan. There was even a gigolo school in Taipei for aspiring man whores.
Of course it's not really about paying for the penis with the female clients. Whereas guys go to hostess bars craving sex, women go to host bars craving attention. Forget getting laid, the ladies just want to feel loved. It's an important lesson I learned from "Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo."
Update: Holy shit that was fast. Just got an email from a female reader who asserts that there are many, many fellow members of Team Uterus out there who'd pay a hot guy only for sex, and not for just good conversation and a backrub. And this doesn't apply only to old rich chicks, but the young poor ladies as well.
Have the times really changed? Are women just as slutty as men? Unfortunately I'm inclined to say "no." Not because women still find being openly horny socially unacceptable, except maybe in the perverted countries like Denmark. It's that they'll always be sluttier for attention over sex. They're just highly uncooperative that way, damn them.
