If you’re desperate for a cuddle, head to the newly opened ‘Soine-ya‘ (‘sleeping together-shop’) in Akihabara, Japan. Kotaku reports that the business is the first of its kind in the country. Customers must first pay a membership fee of ¥3,000 ($39), and are then charged for the amount of time they spend sleeping next to a woman. Twenty minutes is ¥3,000 ($39), six hours is ¥30,000 ($386), and ten hours is ¥50,000 ($650).
