As the Japanese say, “soapiness is next to godliness”
Soapland is a type of Japanese brothel where men are bathed with female prostitutes, although there are a few specifically for female clienthood. Soaplands are special in the idea that a companion’s work room has two areas in it. One is a small area with a small couch and bed, and the other is a large shower room that has a large bath and floor for an inflatable mattress.
The client and companion first get naked. The companion then washes client’s body, including his genitals. There is a special chair for this purpose, called sukebe isu which means “erotic chair”. This chair has a “U”-shaped seat, which causes the genitals to hang loosely, making them easy to wash. For hygienic purposes, the client usually has to brush his teeth before the session.
After warming his body in the bath, the client lies on the air mattress while the companion covers herself with liquid lotion for lubrication. Then she slides her body up and down client’s body, brushing his body with her pubic hair. This is called “awa odori,” or “bubble dance,” and its form of eroticism is considered to be of the highest quality. As a result, soapland costs the most among various types of Japanese brothels. Usually oral sex is performed on the mat, and if the man so chooses they can then engage in sex on the mat. If not, when this “mat play” is over they rinse off and go to the bed to have sexual intercourse.
