Transcript of Persuasive Speech - The World of a Geisha

GEISHA Geisha , geiko or geigi, are traditional Japanese female entertainers who act as hostesses and whose skills include performing various Japanese arts such as classical music, dance and games. Stages of training Stages of training Maiko Mizuage was a ceremony undergone by a maiko, where a man paid money for the privilege of having sex with the apprentice geisha; this also signified her coming of age ________________ Relationships with male guests Geisha may gracefully flirt with their (often infatuated) guests,[40] but they will always remain in control of the hospitality.

A danna was typically a wealthy man, sometimes married, who had the means to support the very large expenses related to a geisha's traditional training and other costs. A geisha and her danna may or may not be in love, but intimacy is never viewed as a reward for the danna's financial support.[ THANK YOU
