People like to blow this one out of proportion, like Nintendo was supporting prostitution or something, but in Japan everybody lives in close proximity with fairly thin walls. Places like these were good for when you didn't want the neighbors or kids hearing your marital activities.

Gotta pay the bills somehow.
There ain't no party like a Mario Party, because a Mario Party...usually stops around 20 turns....

@Hawk

Thanks for clearing that up. I had a feeling it wasn't as bad as most people make it out to be but glad to see someone posting some common sense.

Hahahaha!!! Man, nothing says "we're making babies" quite like a plump plumber wearing overalls and red clothes who can't seem to get into a serious relationship with his woman, whom he has saved a trillion times from an impending doom! :lol:

I still crack up every time one of those young or elderly ladies lets you in their house!

Ha fantastic, you have to love Nintendo and their call backs.

Would be interested to see how quickly talk of this would be blocked on Miiverse.
