Ossan Rental Service
On the about page of the Ossan Rental Service site, it says :
おっさん直通ダイヤル 090-5134-6025 もしもしと高い声の46歳のおっさんが電話にでます♪ 頑張って24時間対応したいです！
Translation by Shen:
“This is a service which you can rent a skillful, experienced and good looking Ossan (middle-aged man) at a low rate as 1,000 yen for 1 hour. You just need to put the Ossan into your cart and pay when you receive the Ossan.
You can play, talk with him, make him do errands or work, or killing time with him.
You can reach our Rental Service directly by dialing 090-5134-6025. You will hear a high-pitched “Moshi-moshi” after the dial, answered by a 46 year-old Ossan. I will try my best to answer your call 24/7. “
