As recently shared by Kotaku, anime girl virtual reality massages in Japan are, as the name suggests, virtual and the actual reality is quite different to what the customers see in their headset.
He might well be experiencing a female anime character giving him plenty of TLC and charming looks, but the grim truth is that a guy is sitting in front and providing the physical side of the massage.
One such VR massage provider is Toranoana VR Relaxation, which plans to open in Akihabara, Tokyo.
This is not a rub-and-tug joint but instead you do get to enjoy a virtual reality anime schoolgirl character’s loving attention during your massage. Just as long as the reality of the situation doesn’t put you off!
The funny thing is that Toranoana is not embarrassed by this. Quite the contrary, they have been the ones posting these images and publicizing these details as part of its publicity and marketing at a recent preview event. It is selling both the quality of the massage, which is provided by a real professional (albeit male), alongside the tech that allows you to enter a fantasy world regardless of who is actually touching your feet.
If you want to pursue this brave new VR landscape, you could also try dining with idols, sex with Shoko Takahashi, or sniffing pantyhose.
Welcome to the future!
