I'm still having a hard time finding out what the point is myself, it's
a very strange sutuation.

It's a dark place in the middle of the day, outside everyone is hurried
and doing their stuff, inside there's music and semi-naked girls
wandering around very close to you, flirting. You have your eyes fixed
in the girl's favourite angles, some clients lean over to look and them
from a different angle. The girls recieve you and say goodby with a kiss
in the cheek, they behave very servile and lean over to pour sugar on
your cofee (tit-in-face effect), you feel sexy for a couple of minutes,
and then go back to work... that's all.

You can imagine that these places are very polular, and they have grown
like mushrooms in these last years. It's supposed to ba an original idea
from our country, they tried to export it to Argentina, but it failed. I
guess the success of these places has some relation with how sex has
historically been a repressed subject in our country, (argentinians have
always been more open about erotism and therefore didn't see the novelty
in these places) ... i guess the cofee bar helps people feel relaxed for
a couple of minutes in the middle of the jobday. Anyway it's no harm :)
