Cuddling, robots, and holograms are replacing sex in Japan

Dating has been replaced by host or hostess clubs, where singles can pay hundreds of dollars an hour for a polite man or woman to pour drinks and make conversation.

And getting married is no longer necessary when you can just pay $2,500 for a virtual spouse.

Vinclu Inc has created a hologram “wife” who will do things like reminding you to take an umbrella in the morning and text you in the day to let you know she’s thinking of you.

As for physical pleasure, there are a myriad of options available for all tastes, including “soaplands.”

These are popular clubs where the male client enjoys good clean fun with a woman who lies him on a waterproof mattress, covers him in soapy water and slides all over him. Sex is not part of the deal.
