Hello dear friend! Why don't you and I take a trip to the floating world of Edo Japan? In this episode, you and I take a stroll down Japan's red light District of Yoshiwara where we'll meet the near-perfect women who live there, the Oiran. I'll take you through the ins and outs of what it takes to be one of Edo Japan's most elite sex workers. You'll be dazzled by the money, glitz, and glam. But is this simply gilded glamor? You'll have to tune in to find out if all that glitters is actually gold. (Instagram) (Patreon) (Link Tree) Email: [email protected] ( (Voice mail!!) (New Merch!!)
