Understanding Japan’s Geisha

Despite an obvious western curiosity with geisha, they remain hidden in a cloak of secrecy. Geisha are not prostitutes or concubines if anything they are the same as hostesses. Geisha do not master the erotic talents; these duties are reserved for women called yugos. Comparatively, geisha go through intense training learning only the traditional Japanese arts. Geisha are very respectable women in Japan’s society and would never routinely indulge in relationships with different men.
