There is a Korean exfoliating process called 'Seshin' that involves a woman (named ddemeri) wearing black lingerie scrubbing naked clients with a sandpaper-like loofah in order to get rid of dead skin and dirt. It is seen as a weekly tradition in Korea as a way of rejuvenation coinciding with Korean beauty standards.

In Japanese Buddhism a sesshin is a period of up to seven days of intensive meditation. I'm not sure whether the Korean version helps one to attain enlightenment quicker, but I'm willing to give it a go ...

I do like how Sesshin translates to 'touching the heart-mind' in Japanese, a lot more poetic than simply translating to 'scrub' in Korean. Definitely would choose the retreat for enlightenment, a quest for supple skin is the choice of the latter :D

A sandpaper-like loofah sounds most uncomfortable, especially anywhere.... you know.... sensitive...

Yep. Had that done in Korea and Korean spas in Mongolia. As a guy friend said "Those scrub gloves were not made for hairy men." Apparently the sensitive bits were *ehem* sensitive.

Your entire body feels like a baby's bum when it's done though.
