Wasn't sure where to post, but found this interesting insight into the Host Club scene on YouTube from a few years back. Getting paid to talk to women seems like a pretty interesting gig... has any one ever worked at a host club like this guy? Would you like to? Thoughts?

Please
  • do not double-post
  • post to an appropriate forum section
  • do not capitalise entire thread titles
  • ask at a forum that specialises in such delicate topics, such as f*****gaijin.
That's all.

Not many, if any, foreigners. Language barrier and cultural barrier.

Would you like to?
Not in a million years.

Thoughts?
Late hours. Probably a smoky atmosphere. Too much drinking. Expensive clothing / hairstyle required.
No inclination to be treated like a sex object, nor to fawn over clientele in a similar manner.
Female hostesses are treated poorly, sometimes violently, so I see no reason why males would be treated differently.
No idea what sort of work visa is made for this as a full-time job. You'd probably have to supplement work on a work visa with these late hours, burning the candle at both ends.

Why wouldn't you consider a normal job?
