I don't know about males, but as a female, I don't see the problem. I'm not "nothing" without a man but I sure as hell would like someone I could just sleep side by side with without worries. Sometimes when you're alone and you can't tell anyone about your problems, the presence of another, stranger or no, can do wonders. It's not demeaning to me to admit that there are weaknesses in your life and you could probably use some help.
I think this manga touches a very interesting, yet personal concept. Can't wait to read more. : )

Laughing at the previous comment "an insult to women"

YAMAZAKI Sayaka is a woman, so I suppose she knows what she is writing about than some random dude

I don't think this is demeaning at all to women. Most people, gals and guys, have experienced times in their lives when it was very hard to sleep. The service offered is not sexual or non-consensual, so what's the problem? The fact that the women admit their weaknesses and help themselves should not be seen as demeaning, but empowering. If I am lonely and want to hang out with people, is it demeaning if I call my friends or acquaintances?

maybe its a cultural thing? Beside the existence of gigolo in shibuya should be more insulting to you but its reality. Why not just accept the fictional idea and follow it. How much damage can someone do with his manga when its optional to read.

Well so far with 2 chapters all in all its giving you a glimpse of a woman who found a way to relieve stress through the idea of a "male pillow". Having him there give the sense of security,comfort,carefree and a moment in time the person is not bound by her daily life.

Overall, I think it's pretty interesting. I'd rather see more of the guys' lives and their interactions with various types of clients rather than focusing on the female lead's life after her ex-husband leaves her.

The lead isn't terrible, she's just...bland and hung-up on her ex-husband/failed relationship.

i really love the lot of this story. she is like a pimp! xD the guys all have nice character design and good but varied personality, i especially love that droning boring boy. the art is also clean, fresh, and i can distinguish faces easilly. ill look forward for more development!

some part of it is disappointing (esp the main lead romance), but still I really like the story 'cos its unique and refreshing except for the ending, I really don't like it....so too bad maybe I'll just give an average rate sad(

@Name-Undecided i don't think u even read this manga before giving comment

"As if a woman can't write stuff that's insulting to women. Obviously you've never read a Harlequin romance or a Mayu Shinjo series"
nad that's the best reply u can give about this manga

i don't see this manga striking a cord with either males or females

for females it must feel demeaning
for men its like crushing their pride....u knw what men go thru to woo women and all that is so easily replaced......i mean the point is going through the angst alone after the heartbreak .....else everyone will break up
