The Japanese Love Industry

Japan is a country that is dying, literally. Japan has more people over the age of 65 and the smallest number of people under the age of 15 in the world. It has the fastest negative population growth in the world, and that’s because hardly anyone is having babies. In these difficult times, the Japanese are putting marriage and families on the back burner and seeking recreational love and affection as a form of cheap escape with no strings attached. We sent Ryan Duffy to investigate this phenomenon, which led him to Tokyo’s cuddle cafes and Yakuza-sponsored prostitution rings.

  1. Ok, I had to stop the video and skip it altogether, when they started draining the snapping turtle’s blood into the guys drink. ..I didn’t even want to see if he actually DRANK it. ..YUCK!!! That was GROSS!

  2. Vice series are great but kind of short i guess

  3. I guess I’ll be the first to comment and man I wish I could’ve been there to experience this too. Not in a perverted way but just to see and feel way their people do as a substitute for love and emotion. I felt I was alone in wanting some of the this the people go to the host/hostess bars. Feels like a place that would b e welcoming. Except to pay for that is BS and not something I would ultimately do. Keep the vids coming!
