a form of prostitution in japan and other asian countries. the customer pays and is taken into a bathing room. the prostitute washes the customer and lays him/her on a inflatable matress. the prostitute contnues by oiling her whole body and laying on top of the customer and giving a "body massage" followed by a blowjob and a good fucking to the customers liking. afterwards, the customer is washed down again, dried and sent on his/her way.
these brothels are also known as "soap-lands"
