In Japan, Love hotel business goes boom boom boom

According to a CNN article about love hotels, business for “love hotels” has been doing just fine in spite of a downward economy. What’s a love hotel, you ask? Well, in a country cramped for space and privacy, couples can rent rooms for even just a few hours to go and make love/have sex. Love hotels are often wildly decorated like mini adult theme parks so that couples can play doctor/patient, go around on a merry go round, or engage in teacher/student games. Check out love hotel photos in this Wired article.

    When I was in Japan I use to sleep in these kind of hotels, it was cheaper than a proper hotel. And I loved the themes, they were the peak of kitsch!!!
