Buddhism[ edit ] Buddhist teachings regarding sex are quite reserved: For the Buddhist monks or nuns, chastity is mandatory since they live on the premise of getting rid of any feelings of attachment. Their way of living is regulated by very strict rules concerning behavior and this includes sex. Paid sex between 'specified persons' acquaintances is not prohibited. Soaplands exploit this by providing a massage, during which the prostitute and client become 'acquainted', as a preliminary to sexual services.
In normally conservative Japan, things can get a little, or a lot, more liberal after hours. In true Japanese fashion, customer service is a top priority and there is something for everyone. Regardless of theme, there are many different types with many different rules. A lot of these places have karaoke as well. Snack Bars are more for the older crowd though.
