    Japanese women pay big bucks for male companionship

    A growing number of professional women in Japan in forking out from $1,000 to $50,000 a night for male companionship.

    It's a dizzying reversal of traditional gender roles in a country long known for geishas pampering male clients with conversation, singing and dancing. Now a new breed of entertainer has cropped up -- think of them as male geishas.

    "I give women things that men normally don't do, like complimenting their appearance," says one host, 24-year-old Yunosuke, who only goes by his single host name. "I make women happy."

    And they make him happy: Yunosuke says he earned more than $200,000 last year, enough to let him visit a salon once a day to have his hair dyed and blow-dried.

    Every time I see the word geisha I think of "My New Haircut, Asian Edition"
