People who post memes when they lose a debate because they're too stupid to have anything better to say.

Thats your opinion and logics, I personally find those people fun and funny at the same time plus I like making fun of people who debates!  God have a sense of humor at least!  People who posts caturday are more superior!
But whether I win or lose in debates still means I'm still retarded anyways!

People who make a lame attempt at self-depreciative humor without actually making it humorous.

Nosebleeds. Goddess damned nosebleeds. I prefer winter for the sole fact that the crisp wintry air does less harm to my nasal capillaries than the scorching summer climate.

... And once more I state this.

You don't have a clue what a host club is do you?

And just to add... you couldn't afford one if there was one here. Seeing that a super cheap night there would be 800-1k, and an expensive night would be upwards to 20k... yeah.

Doubt it. The majority people who assume they know what a host club is, especially those who discover them through OHSHC, normally don't. One being held in the U.S. would be impossible, due to legal reasons. Even if that wasn't a problem, people probably wouldn't invest that much money to create one.

This makes no sense...

Why would you be happy to know that such a shady horrible business exists in the US? Knowing that the sole purpose of the establishment is to take advantage of lonely women to give them false hopes and lies? Knowing that these women will spend thousands of dollars to achieve nothing but false hopes, crushed dreams, and wasted time?

GOD I SURE WISH WE HAD ONE OF THESE IN THE US! THAT WOULD MAKE ME SO HAPPY!

Gameshows, lottery, sports tournaments, gambling... there are rent-a-boyfriend programs in some malls in the US, I note. It exists in the US. It exists where-ever there is a market demand for it, in some shape or form. It'll mutate to fit the laws.

Totally different. Gameshows, lottery, Sports Tournaments, Gambling all have possible payouts. People DO win the lottery, people do make money on game shows, people do make money gambling.

There are male-escort services, but if you think a host cafe is anything like getting an escort, you are sorely mistaken.

Here, I'll just up and explain how a host-club works.

You walk in, and you pick from a book who you want your host to be(or you name them if you know their name). They will tell you if they're available, and how many women are already at his table. You then pay the entry fee, or you can pay a premium fee to get a special table where he will come and only you are there(though how long he stays there is everchanging). Now you sit there, and this guy acts like a guy you're on a date with. The flip is that, he's being nice so that you will buy more stuff. You will buy more drinks for him to drink, you will spend thousands on alcohol, with the premise that "hey... MAYBE just MAYBE I have a shot. It's why, basically only middle ages women who feel they have no hope getting a man, bored rich house wives, and girls that do similar work go to them. They KNOW they're being fooled, but it's just false hope.

On the hosts side it works like this. You basically lead on a girl over as long as possible. You don't over do it at the beginning, because then she feels she has nothing to work for, nothing to look forward to. So a hosts job is to basically string you as long as he possibly can, so you spend as much money as possible, and KEEP COMING BACK to spend even more. And to do this, you remove your emotions. You don't care about the people, you don't care about how you're literally screwing them over so they spend more money, and just put on a charismatic act.

So you're paying money to sit at a table, most likely with other women for him to tease you and charm you so that YOU will buy alcohol and what not, so the club makes money, and he gets comission. If you don't spend money, he'll ignore you and talk to the girl next to you that does.

But oh yeah... Host Clubs are so great~ That's why every stupid as hell American girl wants to go to one.

But oh yeah... Host Clubs are so great~ That's why every stupid as hell American girl wants to go to one.

On the other hand, rationally, the women go into a host bar fully aware that it's an illusion- and should they cross the line (sexual harassment works both ways), I do believe most establishments would have a policy of reinforcing the facts of the illusion swiftly (shady doesn't equal illegit- you'd only want to toe the line so far, most cases).

Whether or not they choose to deliberately forget the reality of the deal is a personal matter, otherwise.

It's escapism. While there are some serious moral quandaries with the varying levels of exploitation in specific bars, I'm personally not at all in favor of moralistic legislation. Keeping things above-table is good enough in most cases.
