I find Geishas beautiful. Geisha literally means art. They have to train from young to master the many different forms of art, for instance making traditional Japanese tea, playing an instrument like a Shamisen, dancing and being an entertainer. I hate how almost everyone pictures a Geisha as a prostitute. Not all Geishas sleep with their customers to make money.
