Watch Dawn Porter online: Episode 3 Geisha Girl

In the third of four programmes, Dawn travels to Japan to immerse herself in the ancient and painstaking rituals of Japan's ultimate party girls: geisha. From the raunchy hot springs of Arima Onsen to the sophisticated geisha houses of historic Kyoto, Dawn takes a crash course in how to gratify Japanese businessmen. "Can dedicating your life to pleasing men make you happy?" she asks. In this rare glimpse into a mysterious world, Dawn gains access to train as a geisha under the strict tutelage of a renowned okasan in Japan's famous Kyoto district, after which she is allowed to entertain a client. From tea ceremonies and traditional dances to parties and drinking games, Dawn hurls herself headlong into the world of the geisha. Speaking to the clients, the okasans, the girls and their families she tackles some of the enduring myths about geisha and discovers some equally strange truths along the way.
