Bizarre: Stressed Japanese Women Can Now Rent Handsome Men to Wipe Away Their Tears

This work stress-management service in Japan is crazy!!

To cope up with stress, women can now pay 7,900 yen ($65) to hire a ‘Ikemeso’ – cute men – to wipe away their tears.

You call the company and pick one of Ikemesos available. He will arrive at your workplace to release your tension. In case, you’re crying, he will wipe away your flowing tears while trying to make you smile. What’s more bizarre is, if you’re NOT able to cry, this Ikemeso will play an emotional film meant to induce crying. After the video is over, he’ll wipe your tears away.1

According to Hiroki Terai, the creator of Ikemeso, “Japanese women are under tremendous stress at the office here in Tokyo, which often ends in tears. We are here to provide a kind word and brush the tears away by one of our seven lovely men on call.”2

Did we hear someone say ‘Indian women are under stress too’? Lol.

Tell us in the comments below, what do you think of this wacky service!
