We would like to explore a curiosity: the love ho-tels with historical roots in the culture of sex, still an important aspect. Already a hit, daytime hotel bookings are popular, and although not that many people know about them, you might be curious to explore this unique phenomenon that it’s about a place where the sole purpose is that “Do not disturb” sign. The importance of sexual privacy is deep in our biology, an important lesson for those in the industry.
If you are ready for lovin’, live in a tiny apartment, or simply with roommates /children then you could go to a hotel with lovely Jacuzzi tubs, and play naughty. Helicopter flights, jacuzzi water-flumes and the champagne, as well as a need for privacy created a bizarre market for luxury motels and owners of seedy ones have turned them into extravagant ‘love hotels’ who offer couples champagne-fuelled rides and over-the-top rooms with everything, from your own DJ to a spinning bed. There are ways to spend your time but one of the activities we enjoy is visiting a love hotel during our trips, as they have renting periods of three hours, are very popular and offer some private time for sexual activity.
They are being rebranded for the elite who spend big money on experiences in financial centers, offering couples flights over the city and cruises in limousines. The love hotels in Tokyo have hourly rates for the slightly gaudy rooms with a bit of madness as well as magic, and they are surprisingly folksy: bright blue lights, flashing balls, karaoke, massage oil, stain removers and complementary condoms. A place where fantasy can be realized, the love hotels short-stay can be rented, although revealing the inner-workings would offer an insight into the lives of the managers.
Though this idea might be sleazy, the no-tell hotels are used by trysting lovers and are also called couple hotels, kitsch havens or sometimes the blatant “sex hotels”. Many bosses take their mistresses here, and it’s estimated that 1.4 million people visit every day one of the themed rooms. The market’s size is estimated at $1.6 million per hotel per year, as it is used by all ages, although particularly popular among young people who are already in employments.
Sometimes it’s for secret encounters or couples fun, but they certainly rose to popularity due to their big beds, elaborate themes and mirrors, and cities like London have adopted these hotel rooms. The term “sex hotel” is the same with a “love hotel”, and although having a hotel for the purposes of getting your groove on started up in the 1950s, when the Japanese homes were designed with living areas as well as afternoon delight, the increasing car ownership made the concept of love hotels with swings and frankly bonkers characteristic of rabuho quite a habit. That’s where love hotels open the doors for togetherness, stemming back to the era when prostitutes would engage with younger people in themed rooms, which later became common among the population.
