Thailand offers a large variety of venues
P4P (Pay for Pleasure) is available.
type of venue has it own flair and some
strongly favor one type over another. Below
are brief descriptions of most of the venues
that you may find in Thailand.
Beer Bars: Thailand is full of
beer bars where P4P is readily available. In the
tourist areas they are quite obvious and they are
outdoors and usually
found in clusters (Beer Bar Complexes or
just a few in a complex and often in the
several 10's; all in a
defined area. Each Beer Bar employs a number of ladies that
may be commissioned to leave the bar for a
small fee payable to the bar
(barfine or BF).
In addition to the BF there will be an
agreed-upon/assumed settlement for the lady.
GoGo’s: A lively setting where a
number if ladies take turn mingling with patrons and
taking turns dancing on stage. To a
various extend the dancing on stage includes
partial for full nudity and in some GoGo’s
choreographed shows are part of the
attraction. In many cases there may also be
special shows such as girls in showers,
girl-on-girl interactions, etc. A
newbie should understand that the ladies are
obligated to take turns performing on stage
BF has been paid, so don’t be
surprised if the lady you are talking to
suddenly has to go dancing.
Coyote or Hostess Bars: A Coyote
bar is a hybrid of a beer bar and a GoGo. Noticeable difference from a GoGo is
that the dancers are neither nude nor topless and
the stage(s) is/are not necessarily a center
focal point, further the intensity of the
music is usually kept to a level where one
can have a normal conversation. The take
turns to dance routine also apply here. A
Hostess bar features hostesses to entertain
customers. The ladies are usually classier
than those in beer bars. Coyote and Hostess
are often interchangeable as either bar will
feature both kinds of employees. In Pattaya,
for example, one of the most famous Coyote
bars is Secrets on Soi 14/Walking Street.
Disco’s: Typically the ladies in a disco
are not employed by the establishment and
occasionally some are not there as part of
P4P, but rather for the fun or to engage
with (western) men. In turn there is no BF
to be paid, but never assume that the girls
are not expecting some compensation.
Frequently bar girls working in GoGo bars
can be found in discos after their shift is
over or after they have completed a ST
session for which they were previously
Freelancers: Ladies who have no
affiliation with an establishment. Often
found on the street or near beaches
soliciting their offerings. They may also be
found in Disco’s and freelance bars. In
Bangkok and Pattaya well known bars named
Beer Garden (not related) make a living by hosting
freelancers while selling beverages. In
Pattaya the Beer Garden is also a highly
regarded restaurant. Occasionally there are
exceptions when a bar allows freelances in
exchange for a bar fine if they leave with a
Newbie's should think twice before getting
involved with freelancers. While most are
great company and you can save on bar fines
and lady drinks, there is no employer to go
to should something go wrong. Also the
chance of inadvertently picking up a
is a fair amount greater among freelancers.
Short Time and Blow Job bars: A short
time (ST) bar is a bar that literally
specializes in providing sexual services
in-house and in a short period of time.
Typically a session is about one hour long
and completed in a private room upstairs of
the bar. Soi 6 is a street in Pattaya that
is famous for its large number of short time
A Blow Job (BJ) bar is a variant of the ST
bar and as the name implies it is a joint
where you can get a blowjob without any or
much privacy. Yes, you can sit right at the
bar or in a couch and get a BJ while having
a beverage. The ladies in these
establishments obviously specialize in this
one service and may add a twist or two i.e.
perform it with an ice cube in the mouth.
Soapy (Full Body Massage):
parlor where the ladies are often lined up
on a stage (fishbowl) waiting for patrons to
select them for a soapy massage. Typically
the fishbowl has two or three sections where
the fee for taking a lady varies based on
looks and qualifications. In addition to the
fishbowl the entertainment center may
feature side-liners and models; all
different approaches and fees. In a soapy
the cost is all inclusive, and often a bit on the
high side; discretionary tip is extra. A typical soapy
offers either or both of two services:
complete soap down (preceded with a bath),
where the lady uses her body to wash down
yours on an air mattress. 2. An
extensive bath where the lady (in the tub)
gives you the most thorough bath imaginable.
No. 1 is the most common. In either case a sexual act/encounter with the lady
providing the soapy service is assumed.
Fantasy Massage: These are establishments
that specialize in making a fantasy
true; like a three-some (or more-some). Two of the most famous are Eden Club
in Bangkok and Devil's Den in Pattaya. Both,
for all intents and purposes, feature
the same setup and experiences: Two ladies (minimum) and uninhibited action for sessions of 90 minutes
or longer. They are a little
on the pricy side, but with promises of
fulfillment. Most services are in-house, but
outcall is also available.
In Bangkok and Pattaya you may also find
more serious fetish catering establishments.
Massages (Therapeutic): Therapeutic
Massages are found EVERYWHERE in Thailand.
While the primary offerings are therapeutic
massages they may also offer various levels of
“Happy Ending”. Mainly there are three types
of offerings: Foot massage, Oil massage and
Traditional Thai massage.
Aside from the P4P aspects, a Traditional
Thai Massage is something that all visitors
to Thailand must try at least once (it can
be addictive). At the end of the massage
which is usually one or two hours the
masseuse may offer additional services which
can vary from a hand job to a much more
intimate service. Keep in mind that some places (or individual masseuses) do
not offer additional services. If a happy
ending is expected simply ask before
committing to the session. The price for
additional services is negotiable becomes
the tip in full.
Ladyboy Massage: As the title implies
this refers generally to an establishment
where the massages are provided by ladyboys.
Most often the venue falls under the
category of Therapeutic Massages, but with a
distinct expectation that a more personal
service is part of the deal (Happy Ending).
Some massage places classed as "Ladyboy
Massage" are simply venues featuring just
Traditional therapeutic massages shops may
employ ladyboys in which case additional
service may or may not be available.
Escort Services: As anywhere in the
world escort services are available in
Thailand, but because of the abundance and
variety of other venues these services have
taken a back seat. In fact, an escort lady
may likely be from any of the above
establishments available at a (much) higher
Karaoke Bars: Karaoke is a pastime among
many Asians. These venues frequently operate
like any other bar with employees that can
be bar fined. While there are some that
caters equally to westerners, they are
generally for the Asians
and are best left as such (especially as far
as P4P is concerned).
