P.S. Translation of a typical flyer, that I shamelessly stole from http://www3.tky.3web.ne.jp/~edjacob/japannotations.htm.
THE PINK CHIRASHI
This is a pink chirashi (sex business flyer) for a deribari herusu. If you live in Japan, there's a good chance that you have one waiting for you in your mailbox right now. The deribari herusu is the sex industry's latest ploy for getting around Japan's anti-prostitution laws. They send sex-workers to love hotels, or the houses of customers, a technique which protects the company's owners because no sex takes place on the premises. Deribari herusu first appeared in 1999 and the business is booming. They are estimated to account for nearly one-third of revenues in Japan's sex trade.
- The lonely male perusing this flier has a wide variety of women to choose from:
- Young co-eds who hate to be alone.
- Serious business woman by day, horny OL by night.
- Young, sex-starved horny housewives.
- Sexy nurses with detailed knowledge of male anatomy.
- Women who you wouldn't expect to be sexy, but who look like Playboy Playmates with their clothes off.
- Insatiable women who aren't satisfied with regular sex.
- This club, called J Work offers D kissu (French kissing), nama fera (oral sex without a condom), and nyuuyoku play (sex in the bathtub). Although they are not listed on this particular flier, other popular services include "69", "gyaku herusu" (anal penetration with the fingers), and "paizuri" (rubbing the penis with the woman's breasts). Like Tom Waits said, "They'll paint the donkey blue if you pay."
- Conspicuous by its absence from the list of services is "honban" or regular intercourse. According to Japanese law, it's okay to pay a woman to dress up like a school girl, beat her back bloody, and stick practically any of your body's organs into any orifice that strikes your fancy, just as long as you don't have sex with her in the way nature intended. Instead of "honban", this business has used the euphemism "himitsu play" (secret play).
Eye-catching as the front of Delivery Health ads are, what is written on the back is usually even more interesting. That's where they recruit the girls that keep Japan's huge sex business moving 24 hours a day, 354 days a year. According to Spa! magazine, there are about 200,000 women working in Japan's sex trade, some 16,000 of whom are employed in the delivery health business.
- "Earn over 50,000 yen per day." If a woman worked 20 days a month, she could earn over 1 million yen a month, more than five times what an average, college-educated woman earns working as an office clerk.
- At first reading, this ad for a job requiring absolutely no experience (Mikeikansha daikangei), allows women to set their own hours (Jiyuu shukkin sei) and offers door to door pickup and delivery (Kanzen sougei) has a certain appeal, but a lot can be learned about what life is really like for the Delivery Health girls from this list of 'benefits'. Promises to pay the women in cash every day (Kanzen hibarai sei) are used to overcome what is probably a very justifiable fear that part of her salary will be withheld in order to prevent her from quitting. "Shakin/noruma issainashi" or "Absolutely no deposits or quotas" also serves to allay fears of unsavoury business practices that are standard in the sex trade. As the economy deteriorates and customers' budgets become tighter, women are being asked to perform more and more bizarre services. Many pink chirashi advertise that men can rip off the woman's stockings at no extra charge (Pansuto yaburi muryo), a disturbing service that seems to be designed to appeal to men harbouring rape fantasies. The door to door pick up and delivery that sound so convenient are actually there to reassure women who are going to have to visit the houses of strange, lonely men and have sex.
- No sexual harassment whatsoever (Sekuhara houshuu issainashi). This is just so deliciously ironic. In a society were at least some sexual harassment at work is practically a given? in the one business where sexual harassment and objectification would seem to be part of the job, this shop is promising a sexual harassment free working environment.
