Japanese Cuddle Cafe Lets You Sleep with a Girl for $80

And when I say sleep, that’s exactly what I mean, you pervert! The Soineya “co-sleeping specialty shop” gives customers the chance to sleep in the arms of a beautiful girl, no strings attached.

Like RocketNews24’s Steven Simonitch notes, sometimes there’s nothing more comfortable that crawling into bed with your better half and falling asleep in their arms. But what if you don’t have someone to cuddle with? Don’t panic, we have some really good alternatives. One thing you can do is hire a professional cuddler for $60 an hour, or if you happen to be in Japan, you can visit the newly-opened Soineya cuddle cafe, where you can even choose the girl with whom you which to spend the bed with.

Soineya opened its gates on September 25, in Tokyo’s Akihabara district, ground zero for electronics and pretty much anything nerdy. According to the unique establishment’s home page, it aims to offer customers “the simple and ultimate comfort of sleeping together with someone.” There’s even a list of things you’re allowed to do at Soineya, and their respective prices, because cuddling with a stranger isn’t free. Let’s take a look at the “menu”:

The standard cuddling course costs:

  • 20 min – 3000 yen ($40)
  • 40 min – 5000 yen ($65, only 3000 yen for first time visitors)
  • 60 min – 6000 yen ($77)
  • 2 hrs – 11000 yen ($142)
  • 3 hrs – 16000 yen ($206)
  • 4 hrs – 20000 yen ($258)
  • 5 hrs – 25000 yen ($322)
  • 6 hrs – 30000 yen ($387)
  • 10 hrs – 50000 yen ($645)

Clients at Soineya (which literally translates as (literally, “sleep together shop) can also fork out ¥1,000 ($13) to pick out the girl they want to cuddle with, and and extra ¥500 ($6,50) for every hour of cuddling. And if simple cuddling just isn’t enough for you, there’s always the optional menu:

  • Customer sleeps in girl’s arm (3 min) – 1000 yen ($13)
  • Girl pats customer on the back (3 min) – 1000 yen  ($13)
  • Customer pets girl on the head (3 min) – 1000 yen  ($13)
  • Customer and girl stare at each other (1 min) – 1000 yen  ($13)
  • Girl changes clothes (1 time) – 1000 yen  ($13)
  • Girl gives customer foot massage (3 min) – 1000 yen  ($13)
  • Customer gives girl foot massage (3 min) – 2000 yen  ($26)
  • Customer sleeps with head on girl’s lap (3 min) – 1000 yen  ($13)
  • Girl sleeps with head on customer’s lap (3 min) – 2000 yen  ($26)

Add the ¥3,000 ($40) admission fee and you’re basically paying close to $80 just to lie in bed with a total stranger. Considering weird cafes tend to be pretty successful in Japan, the Soineya cafe could be yet another hit.
