The Great Happiness Space.


Walking around Shinjuku in Tokyo, you'll notice that the streets are teeming with suit-wearing man whores with blonde anime hair, penciled eyebrows, and fake tans. I was surprised to learn that most of their clientele aren't bored wealthy housewives, but young women who gladly shell out hundreds even thousands of dollars for champagne in exchange for some artifical he-bitch love. Ironically these female customers are often hostesses or prostitutes. Jake Clennel made a fascinating and somewhat sad documentary about a host bar in Osaka, which you can watch here in its entirety (1 hour 16 min).
