One of the biggest misconceptions of escorting is the idea that people only want sex with the men and woman who do it as a profession. Far from it, the amount of men who visit them and just want a chat would actually astound you. Some people just want company. However, this ‘companionship’ is being taken to a whole new level in China.
It seems that Chinese men are paying ‘virtual girlfriends’ to listen to them moan about their hard day at the office.
Businessmen are paying up to $5 a day for women to call them to wake them up, listen to them whinge, and say goodnight to them at the end of the day.
This is all being run by Chinese company Taobao who are the countries biggest e-commerce operation.
These virtual girlfriends come in a range of personalities according to the customers’ needs. They include “doll-like girls,” “mature women,” and “the girl next door.”
There is no sexism here either as these services are available to women as well. They can get personalities such as personalities like “men in uniform,” “CEO,” “handsome men” and “comforting men.”
Zhang Xiaoli, head of the China Association of Mental Health, said customers who use the service are usually lacking in social skills or people who are simply bored and need something to do to pass the time.
A Wonderful Idea
I think it is a wonderful idea. Loneliness is one of the biggest killers around. Just having someone to talk to at the end of a long, hard day adds some brightness into some people’s lives. This is almost a public service.
Maybe this is something the Oslo escorts could do? Seems a good way to make a buck and cheer some people up.
Everyone’s a winner!
