Too scared to go to love hotels with a partner right now in case you catch the dreaded virus?
Like a lot of people, we are holding back these days and not taking our usual trips to places. This might be the beach or the movie theater or museum, though our no-fly zone also currently includes nightclubs, bars, and love hotels. Life is dull indeed.
Fortunately, other people can go to these places for us and provide stunning photo shoots that offer a vicarious experience.
Such as Twitter user and photographer @room404nf, who posted a series of images from an incredible love hotel shoot. The look of the shoots, especially the second one, is very prewar, either early Showa or even Taisho, like some tryst from an Edogawa Rampo story.
The models are, unfortunately, not named.
Even more explicitly retro in style is this amazing shoot by Koh Takeda featuring the model Sheena. Looking almost like a silicone sex doll, Sheena is barely clothed in a robe and lolling around on the tatami floor, surrounded by bottles of sake and lacquerware.
