What the Freak?
Japan's first Cuddle Cafe opened this week. Soineya allows customers to sleep with cute Japanese girls, but sex is prohibited. Yes, we can hear the collective sigh all the way over here.
The manager, who goes by the name of Koda (That's it, just Koda. He's like the Madonna of the cuddle industry), assures everyone this is not a sex service.
No Koda, it's completely different; just a bunch of sad lonely men paying cute young women to physically fulfill them.
