Most people look forward to staying in a hotel as a chance to visit a new city, indulge in some well-deserved rest and relaxation, and get away from the stresses of everyday life. But for some, a hotel stay is a chance to explore a brave new world of kinky sexual adventures.
These are the not-so-timid folks who can be found frequenting the “love hotels” of Europe, Latin America and Asia. A phenomenon that originated in Japan, “love hotels” allow visitors to book a room for an hourly rate, where they can do the deed in total privacy. What started as a simple concept born out of the necessity for private spaces in the crowded cities of Japan has grown into an international business. Today, love hotels not only offer a solution to locals in search of privacy, but also cater to all types of kinks and fetishes for visitors from near and far. These hotels and motels provide a judgment-free atmosphere for those looking to experiment. Whether a guest is into bondage, role-play, S&M or any other erotic fantasies, there’s a room somewhere for everyone.
Here we look into the shocking and fascinating world of love hotels, from the playfully tongue-in-cheek hideaways of Europe to the hedonistic pleasure palaces of Thailand. Anyone who has always wanted to act out that schoolgirl fantasy, play with some whips and chains, make love in a doctor’s office or get down with some Hello Kitty sex toys might consider checking into a love hotel on their next trip.
