Love Hotel Interior at Public Jam Hotel Osaka - Originally love hotels were merely places for couples to meet up in crowded cities where they had no private space, or family matters prevented them from hosting visitors. They have always been neutral ground, where intimacy can be risked without consequences. Lovers turn up and instead of being greeted by a receptionist, check in is usually automated by machine for extra privacy. You can select a “rest” which is a quickie, or a “stay” for longer overnight sessions. With the competition intense, love hotels have come up with innovative ways to compete with each other. Other than the more mundane methods of offering amenities like DVD players, videos, rotating beds or sex toys, many have entered the realm of theme parks. Love hotels include such themes as the White House, UFOs, Christmas, underwater sea scenes, railway cars, retro, doctors office, schoolrooms…. Part of the theme trend is to make the experience more fun. Couples can select a different theme for each tryst. This makes the situation less embarrassing or threatening by offering up exotic or funny settings, thus rendering the tryst into an experience rather than a mundane, sordid affair. Genius!
