More on Japan’s pink salon professional cock suckers

Japanese fellatio

Please note, I mean no national offense with the title. I am just describing things as they are. As I described earlier, Japan has countless pink salons or “pinsaros,” which are the local versions of blowjob bars where a guy can go to get his salami swallowed for a few bucks, sometimes even multiple times. Building on that and the interview with a pinsaro worker I posted earlier, I’ve decided to share some more information I’ve found on the edges of the internet in the last few days.

First, some interesting info from a look at the Japanese sex industry by Orient Expat:

Pink salons are more demanding when compared to soapland or “deli-heru.”

Mari, 20, works at a pink salon in Ota Ward in Tokyo. Like any other typical pink salon, her salary is based upon the hourly rate. She makes 3,000 yen per hour and about 300,000 yen per month. She has to have a medical check-up for STDs every month at her own expense.

“I did not come into this world to earn big money. I was living with my boyfriend after graduating from high school. But his income was not enough, so I wanted to work as well to make a decent living for both of us,” Mari said. “I decided to work here because it’s based upon an hourly rate and not by how many customers I service, so there is a guarantee even if there are no customers.”

Pink salons specialize in oral sex. Sometimes the girls have to handle as many as 50 “sticks” (their term for customers) a day, but it is not reflected in their income.

“Other than the hourly wage, we get 200 yen per customer. But that’s nothing. Even with 50 sticks, we only get 10,000 yen,” said Mari. “But we can receive a bonus of 2,000 yen, if the customer designates a certain girl. So that is what we want, and to us those customers who designate girls are like god.”

Like Mari suggests, girls can expect a steady income at pink salons, so for many girls, pink salons are the “gateway” to the sex industry. They later climb up the ladder to work at “heru,” and then soaplands.

Not much I haven’t covered here before, but still interesting. I’ve seen a lot of different numbers floating around on how much pinsaro princesses make, but I think it probably varies a lot, just like prices. In Tokyo you can get sucked bareback by three women at one shop for 2000 Yen (around $20 US) while at another shop it may be 7500 (around $75 US) for a single suck job with a condom.

With more information, Tokyo Reporter has some interesting information on pink salons compiled from translations of Japanese fuzoku (sex industry) publications:

“There’s a pink salon in Otsuka serving more than 200 customers a day. In this economy, that is unbelievable.”

Naturally, the tabloid felt obligated to investigate the premises, located in Tokyo’s Toshima Ward — no name for the establishment is given but a Google search reveals a few candidates [Rockit’s note: sounds a lot like Ichigo Kurabu, but could easily be one of the others nearby] — and discovered that Japan’s ongoing deflation has sent cash-strapped patrons stampeding to pink salons in favor of deri heru (out-call) sex services.

“Since last summer, fuzoku prices have fallen like a rock,” says that same sex scribe. “In Tokyo, standard deri heru fees have dropped from 15,000 yen for 60 minutes to 10,000 yen for 40 minutes. The smaller outlay is appealing to customers. But these days, even that can’t top the reasonable fees charged by a pink salon.”

Unlike deri heru, prices have not changed, but the services rendered have been boosted. Patrons can now expect turns with three different ladies — referred to as 花びら回転 (hanabirakaiten, or literally flower petal rotation) — an increase over the two that was once the industry standard.

“Otsuka and Kichijoji are hot spots,” explains a sports shimbun editor. “Lines form in the morning. Office ladies walking through the areas wonder: ‘What is going on?’ Of course, they don’t get any answers.”

The article says that back in the day the reputation of a pink salon was not high, with the staff mainly being comprised of middle-aged ladies. However, younger gals are entering the trade, spurned on by the recent popularity. “For sure, the quality is increasing,” says a pink club manager in Tokyo. “They are college girls, freshmen or recent graduates, aged in their early twenties. During interviews it is possible to pick and choose quality talent at will.”

The customers are not the only ones benefiting from this boom. “The girls get paid on an hourly basis — usually 3,000 yen per hour plus 500 yen per customer,” says that same fuzoku writer. “With the deri heru business struggling and pay being based on a per-customer basis, gals are looking for locked-in income.”

I’ve actually seen lines out the doors at some of these places when they offer specials. It can be funny since some are located immediately next door to family restaurants and the like. But who can pass up on a triple blowjob for $20, even when it requires you to stand around looking like an asshole? Me, for one. In my more desperate days perhaps.

Anyone else have any tales about adventures with blowjob bars?
