You  might be right.  I just have a hard imagining that when one combines men

time at home. 


Right. Which proves my point: the singing and dancing.
It's a logical point.
"That geisha cannot sing (or dance)" 
would be _contradictory_ (if not otiose) -- since it would amount to it  
saying "That geisha is not a real geisha" -- 
"That prostitute cannot sing (or dance)"
becomes pretty trivial (since few can, anyways).
