  1. Enjo kōsai

    Enjo-kōsai (援助交際, literally, enjo, "aid or support", kousai "congress, intercourse, intermingling", shortened form enkō 援交) is a type of transactional relationship similar to the western equivalent being a call girl of Sugaring. It is the Japanese language term for the practice of older men giving money and/or luxury gifts to attractive young women for sexual favors. The female participants range from school girls (or JK business) to housewives. The term is often translated as "compensated dating" or "subsidized dating". The opposite case of women paying men, gyaku enjo kōsai (逆援助交際, reverse compensated dating), is not a documented social phenomenon, but fraudulent solicitations from fictive women offering to pay for sex is a common tactic in phishing emails.
