A geisha is a Japanese version of a type of show girl. They dance, play instruments and perform various types of entertainment. A few of geisha also sleep with some men but other than that, they are only used for entertainment purposes. And yes, they are still around today in geisha houses.
geishas were a Japanese hostess its really hard to explain. they were to be virgins and served men in geisha houses they were sold off to be wives after a few years....again it was a Japanese thing ans hard to explain ...geishas today are not like they were 100 years ago as japan has changed...sorry my answer is so vague
