The Rise of the Geisha and Danna
Our study of The Rise of the Amateur Sex Industry in January emphasized how both men and women, in response to the degradation of the SMP and MMP, are resorting to faux relationships of a transactional nature. Women who are gifted with looks, charm, and the mind for business are dominating the new SMP/OASIS. These women were compared to geishas in the discussion, and this trope resonated around the ‘sphere.
Farm Boy wrote a post on this topic at Spawny’s Space. In it, he wrote,
“Is there something comparable [to a geisha in] the West? Not formally. Probably there are some fellas who have ladies that they lean on, with the fellas providing gifts and the like. Perhaps the market for such a thing has never been big enough to create something legitimately.”
“It really should not be that difficult for a lady to figure out what the customer wants, then package up the product. Just listen, think, figure out what to do, then respond appropriately when needed. This is perhaps about some of the easiest money around if you can cultivate such a customer.”Spawny’s Space (Farm Boy): Geisha (2021 January 19)
Yes, the real challenge for female competitors in this arena lies in the invention of a suave personalized image of femininity, and the presentation and marketing thereof.
In Japan before the WWII era, geishas underwent several stages of training, starting as young as 6, and lasting many years. It was traditional in the past for an apprenticed geisha to take a danna, or patron. A danna was typically a wealthy man, sometimes married, who had the means to support the very large expenses related to a geisha’s traditional training and other costs.
Likewise, now there is a vacuous need for a new kind of pimp/madame/master/mentor/danna — someone who can educate and coach young attention/income seekers to be an idealized geisha from a man’s point of view. This idealized geisha would have all of the honeycraft and creampies that men covet, and none of the witchcraft and $h!t testing that is typically inherent in the average unregenerated female. This idealized geisha would also have the image and PR necessary to succeed.
NovaSeeker described the technical aspects of this as a “production”.
“Creating HQ content is a “production” as Delphine describes. You need lighting. You need direction. You need scenes and a planned flow. It isn’t Shakespeare, but it also isn’t a woman alone in her bedroom with her cellphone taking a video of herself touching herself. It’s a production. It requires other people. It requires multiple takes, in some cases. It requires post-production and editing. And all of that is more time consuming (much more), more invasive to personal life, and more costly than taking pics and videos with your own cellphone yourself (or via your IG boyfriend or some OF BFF) together with the occasional pro shoot (bonus if your BF is a pro photographer, or if you have a BFF who is). It crosses those lines of “accessibility” and “ease of production” that have made OF so attractive to women, precisely because it is no harder for them to produce content for than Instagram. That changes, quite a bit, if one is shifting to HC video content.”
Of course, parents and especially fathers should have given young girls training in poise, manners, and etiquette, especially concerning how to get along with men. Wealthier families sent their daughters to a professional finishing school. However, the past few generations have dismissed learning these social graces as demeaning and old fashioned. Their failure to transmit the time-tested traditions of the old regime (and the knowledge of God’s ordained order of creation) has left modern generations of young women without any concept of the personal wealth they might have at their disposal, given proper training.
But with the rise of OASIS, it seems that (some) women may now begin to recognize the value of the values of the past — but they have no dannas to guide them… yet.
The bards of yesteryear foretold of this coming age.
The Future of the West
Long time commenter horsemanbombadil summed up the Geisha analogy as follows.
This is the future of the west.
Men have detached and have little interest in long term provisioning. Economies are entering hard times, depression. Large groups of men and women who are not the 20% are going to be forced into singleness for all of their 35-65s.
Many women post wall do not have the skills\jobs to support themselves until retirement. Many men do not have the 20% to be desirable but because of self-focus are economically comfortable.
Social supports like siblings, extended family are fractured so the extended family living arrangement is gone.
Men women sharing resources to live comfortably but without the romantic, family ties.
The housekeeper who tends house for the confirmed bachelor common in the late 1800s, early 1900s…
The girlfriend experience\geisha that pretends but is a formal honourable business transaction.
The legal and accepted hooker. Simple, clean sexual transaction as needed.
Women for the most part cannot do the pure corporate grind as singletons for 40 years, 25-65 no matter what feminism says. They want to be part of a social unit. But men do not trust them on a social level.
The social contract is broken.
So the answer is a business contract.
Focus here and everywhere is the pre wall and immediate post wall periods — the 20-year period mid-twenties to mid-forties.
But there is an equal 20-year period that must be addressed. 45-65 retirement.
What does society do with large groups of bachelors and spinsters in these groups?
How to incentive them to continue working, being good citizens, being part of society when they have no family, no meaningful work, no human interaction?
Large groups spending two decades despondent, discarded, without hope? Abandon any animal and see what it does? It either goes mad, goes aggressive or lays down to die.
Society cannot have this in large numbers. It will find a solution.
The natural evolution will be to form new units, but at arm’s length.
Based not on mutual need like prehistory to 1900, not based on love like 1900 to 1970s, not based on hedonism\free love like 1970s to present.
Based strictly on business relationship play acting as social.
I trust my work associates because it is in our mutual best interests.
Do I emotionally like them? Irrelevant.
That is what the next base unit of society. A small business group.
Borders in a boarding house.
Home owner and housekeeper
Worker and live in geisha.
Independent singleton and on demand date\sexual partner.
Both sexes are fine in the 20s to 40s.* Those decades are full of establishing whatever the lifestyle is. The CC, the becoming successful at work, the making one’s mark on the world.
The peak performing years. This can replace social bonds by achievement or pleasure.
But once one plateaus? When tomorrow will not be better than today. When the body tires?
When the sparkle of the pursuit becomes the grind?
Forget even the baby clock etc.
The day when you realize, I don’t want to do this anymore? But I have a decade or more to retirement or the home? Women how do you suck it up and do your corporate job? Men how do you suck it up and stay part of society?
At this point being alone will be intolerable. Socially and economically.
The sexes will gravitate to what biologically are designed for. The programming cannot overcome forever. But the biology will not overcome the mistrust and jadedness caused by the decades of experience. So the answer will be some compromise of the biological need to form units against the emotional detachment of experience.
The playacting model.
* I disagree that both sexes are “fine” in the 20s to 40s (most men suffer exceedingly), but horseman’s overall point still stands. Please read The Futility of Justifying the Crash Landing (2021 February 15) for more on this.
When love and trust evaporate, then human interaction boils down to a series of transactions in order to fulfill needs. The needs will not budge, and if people will not trust God to fulfill those needs, then they are reduced to bartering and various power plays in order to satisfy those needs.
But even this approach requires training and preparation.
Enter the new 21st century danna and the geisha finishing school.
