Do they call them 'Love Hotels' because the people who go there are in love?

I've only been to Love Hotels twice, and they were with my girlfriend... and I sincerely hope they don't have cameras! Yikes.

How many more woman are going to be killed in these places? Why can't J guys exercise self control, you know, just don't lash out like it doesn't matter how much pain and damage they cause? I have NEVER raised my hand to a woman. Any guy that does is of low moral character and deserves a drop kick down the nearest flight of stairs.

RIP, whoever you were :(
