Compensated companionship cafe goes a step beyond pre-programmed VR romance games. After all, the whole point of going to a hostess bar, and paying the premium such establishments charge compared to normal bars, is for guys to get their egos stroked as beautiful women listen with rapt attention or girlish laughter as everything the customer says is a mixture of deeply profound and entertainingly clever. Se, Ichikara is opening a cafe where customers sit and chat with young ladies while sipping drinks or playing games. The Yumenographia cafe, as seen in the working photo above, provides compensated companionship through the magic of virtual reality. The inclusion of games such as rock-paper-scissors on the list of available services makes it seem as though Yumenographia is likely to hew more towards the relatively chaste interactions at maid cafes, as opposed to the often inuendo-laden conversation at full-fledged hostess bars. That would also likely be a better fit with the otaku demographic the idea is likely to attract, which sometimes sees spending time at a traditional hostess bar as a waste of money.

Street racing is typically an unsanctioned and illegal form of auto racing that occurs on a public road. Racing in the streets is an ancient hazard, as horse racing occurred on streets for centuries, and street racing of automobiles is as old as the automobile itself. But it became especially prevalent during the heyday of hot rodding and muscle cars , and it continues to be both popular and hazardous, with deaths and maiming of bystanders, passengers, and drivers occurring every year. In the United States, modern street racing traces its roots back to Woodward Avenue , Michigan in the s when the three main Detroit -based American car companies were producing high-powered performance cars. A private racing venue was not always available, and therefore the race would be held illegally on public roads. Though typically taking place in uncrowded highways on city outskirts or in the countryside, some races are held in industrial complexes. Street racing can either be spontaneous or well planned and coordinated. Opponents of street racing cite a lack of safety relative to sanctioned racing events, as well as legal repercussions arising from incidents, among street racing's drawbacks.
