In the cafes, girls dressed in frilly frocks inspired by comic-book heroines wait hand and foot on customers, mostly male, who might have once been obsessed with naughty schoolgirls and nurses.
At one cafe, maids get down on their knees to stir the cream and sugar into the customer’s coffee.
At Royal Milk, diners can follow up a meal with a range of grooming services, including ear cleanings.
Maids at some of the more attentive shops even offer to spoon-feed customers at their table.
Woohoo. There’s something forbiddenly misogynistic about being served by women. And it’s so enticing. In Perth, there are male barber shops which only hire pretty young girls. And guess what? It works because men are such simple creatures.
Too bad these “maid cafes” weren’t around when I was in Akihabara 5 years back. Damn I’ve missed out.
