Japan is a country where you can rent pretty much anything you like, whether it be CDs, DVDs, phones, boyfriends, or young men to make you cry. Now you can even hire a handsome butler to pamper you whenever you feel the need. 

New butler rental company Royal has been in existence for less than a month, and it's already been featured on various media outlets in Japan. Proudly proclaiming itself to be the first rental business of its kind, Royal offers the services of 9 young men, ranging in age from 19 to 32 years old. For 5000 yen an hour (about 44 US dollars), women can hire any one of the handsome butlers to cater to their every need. Not only are the butlers supposedly very good looking, they take their work seriously, as seen in the photos below taken for Japanese online news site Rocket News 24. According to Royal's website, they rent out their qualified butlers to accompany ladies for dinners, shopping, dating, counseling, museum dates, amusement park dates, taking trips, karaoke, help with household chores, cooking, and of course, aromatherapy sessions. So basically, if you spend a day with any one of their handsome helpers, you will be set back anywhere between 300 to 500 dollars, not including paying for everything you do with him. That sounds like an awful lot of money, but sometimes, you just want to be pampered.

Despite its media exposure, Royal only has a grand total of 14 likes on its Facebook page. I wonder why . . .
