Almost 2 months ago when Veronika and I were just about to board a plane at the Heathrow airport to fly to JFK, we spotted a small pile of magazines on one of the benches - In Style, Gloss and all those other incredibly good reads providing loads of enlightening information. Not. The pile looked deserted and sadly so, therefore we decided to rescue it and I shoved it in my already-bursting-at-the-seams bag. About 8 hours later when the pile of magazines was weighing me down like a pile of bricks during yet another transfer, I was of course cursing all the glossy magazine gods for testing me with all ze pretty pictures and I was cursing myself too for failing the test miserably. But every story has a silver lining and so does this one so read on.
It took me about 15 minutes (and I'm being generous) to go through all of the ample leaflets and since all they evoked was "Oh, I want this!" and "Man, her legs are so frigging long!" I don't think all that schlepping was justified. But as promised, there is a silver lining. While turning the pages of Gloss, I spotted a short paragraph, which confirmed my belief that our species is indeed and entirely fucked and fucked up. Not that my belief is on shaky grounds or that it needs confirming, but let's be honest - who doesn't like to hear they're right from time to time? Or over and over again...
The paragraph was about a Japanese cuddle cafe where one can go and buy themselves a good - cuddle. You climb in a bed with a girl and just cuddle with her: You can pay her to spoon you, to rub your back, to hug you, you literally pay her to simply and solely cuddle. And apparently Gloss wasn't making this stuff up - see?
Now my two questions are these: If you can pay a girl for sex but she's too lazy or unqualified to cuddle and you can pay a girl for cuddling but she won't give you a blow job, let you inside her vagina or kiss you, when are the girls providing some kissing services going to pop up? After sex workers and cuddle workers, the kissing workers are the logical next step in our incredibly illogical and delusional society. Not that I'm against any of the working ladies, the services themselves don't bother me, what bothers me is the need for them. Which brings me to my next question: If you have 300 friends on Facebook and you still don't have anyone to cuddle with you for free, don't you think there's something wrong with zis pretty picture?
