We actually discussed whether women might be interested in a massage parlor type spot on GUMSHIP Radio episode 14. Well, it looks like these actually exist. But instead of having a dude come in and fingerbang them (that’s what we imagined it might be like), they offer an assortment of toys.
The wall behind the counter is adorned with dozens of colorful sex toys. Megumi Nakagawa, the bar’s proprietor, explains that typically a bar will have bottles of alcohol lining the wall. The appearance of vibrators, however, provides women with more confidence in speaking about spanking.
“Once they take a seat, customers are able to experience a pleasant place in which they can openly discuss masturbation,” says Nakagawa. “Since most people view female masturbation as something of a mystery or taboo, it is not a usual topic at typical bars.”
Nakagawa describes the atmosphere at Bar Joule as “fashionable and sexy in a different kind of space — perfect for girls-only discussions or a date.”
Apparently, they’ve already had some ‘celebrity’ visits.
Customers include women from the commercial sex (fuzoku) industry and adult video (AV) actresses. On the bar’s Facebook page, former AV star Nayuka Mine visited in September, as did Sayo Hayakawa, the fashion model known for appearing in Koakuma Ageha.
I can already see dudes judging the girls that come out of places like these on some double standard shit. Ay man, sometimes women need access to a dildo paradise and ride sybians (look it up). What’s your verdict, would you mind if your girlfriend frequented these places? Ladies, would you check it out or is masturbation something that should be done at home?
