How easy is it to get gay sex in Bangkok – (part 2 Moneyboys).

 

If you are anti Grindr, as increasingly many men are, do not despair horny boy; gay sex is still very easy to find in Thailand. Especially if you are not adverse to paying for it.

I hadn’t heard the term ‘moneyboy’ before my trips to Thailand, but I have grown quite fond of the term and I would quite happily take the label for myself and what I do. Let’s consider the British alternatives.

Rent boy- Sounds very degrading, don’t know where the term comes from, even a quick google search didn’t explain. My guess is that it came from guys sleeping with men to pay the rent? Either way I don’t like the term.

Hooker – I am not going to lie, I don’t mind it when my mates jokingly refer to me as hooker, but it is said affectionately. One hopes.

Prostitute – too formal and I picture myself wearing knee high red boots, not a good look.

So Moneyboy sits well with me. It does what is says on the tin. You want a boy, the boy wants money, everybody’s happy. Okay Okay, I know I am pushing the boat now with the third syllable but moneyman doesn’t have the same ring to it, so I am sticking with MoneyBoy until I give up the massage/escort business which will be at the end of my travels.

I could write a whole post on my views on people paying for sex (and probably will at some point), but just for purpose of this particular post I will make it clear that my view is: as long as the person doing it is not being coerced, they are mentally strong and happy with what they do, then nobody should have any issue with it.

If you are happy to pay for man on man action, then you will be spoilt for choice with the menu in Bangkok, here are your options:

Room Delivery.

Wake up horny in the middle of the night, get a boy delivered to your room within 30 minutes. There are loads of gay male “massage” places in Bangkok and the easiest way to find them is a quick google search. I cannot recommend any personally as I haven’t used this service, but I spoke to a guy who has used Urban Male Massage Bangkok and said the service was fantastic.

To have a boy delivered will generally cost you between 2500-4000 Thai Baht (£55 – £90) and that includes everything. The easiest way to get in touch with them is to download the Thai version of Whatsapp: ‘Line’.

You can be quite specific about the type of guy you want, but they are generally pretty much young twinks with tight bods. A lot of places will refer to tops as “man”, which is a bit degrading to bottoms but hey at least you know what they mean now.

Massage Parlour

If like me you like to shop in person rather that online, then this may be a safer option for you. There are countless gay male massage places dotted around Bangkok, so no matter where you stay there should be one not too far.

When you visit these places you get to check out all the guys on offer in person before you decide who is the man for the job. I have probably had around 6 of these throughout my travels and the success rate has been about 50%

The best one was in Chiang Mai, at a gay massage place that has now unfortunately shut down. As I have mentioned before I am not massively into Thai guys but this one just did it for me. I spotted him the night before we had a session together, the bar owner said that he was really hoping that I would book him to ‘go upstairs’. I took it with a pinch of salt and took it as a sales tactic. Forever cynical.

Anyway, that night when I got back to the hotel I couldn’t stop thinking about his pecs and abs that he paraded about the bar, so the next day I thought what the hell I will go have some fun. Being a bit of a shit bag I made a friend come with me and wait downstairs.

My 60 minute booking (that usually over here ends up as 30 mins) went on for 2 hours. I think still to this day is probably the longest sex sesh that I have had with a non boyfriend. The saying time flies when you’re having fun is so true I had no idea we had been so long, when I came down my friend had left, said he gave up waiting after 90 mins.

The worst was also in Chiang Mai. It was over 6 years ago and I am not going to name the place as I can’t make any enemies out here and it doesn’t sit well with my new way of thinking and being. It was a beautiful villa just outside the centre of Chiang Mai.

After being greeted by very extroverted ladyboy, she rang a bell, and around 50 Thai lads of all shapes and sizes came running to present themselves. All stood in a line, half looking desperate to be picked and the other half looking scared to be picked.

I felt qute intimidated so I didn’t deliberate too long or inspect closely, I just more or less randomly picked my guy. My ever persistent penchant for straight guys must be on a subconscious level. After ten minutes of him halfheartedly rubbing oil on me, he whipped out his mobile and put some lesbian porn on to get hard.

As much as the fantasy of gay for pay may be to watch on orchestrated porn using obviously gay guys, the reality of feeling you are forcing a straight guy into sex for money is not cool. I told him to leave it, he was about to kick off until he realised he was still getting his fee.

Sat in the lobby waiting for my friend to finish, the ladyboy that seemed so sweet, offered me a green tea. If I knew it was going to cost me 200 baht I would have declined!!!!

So as you can see it is a little hit and miss when it comes to visiting a gay massage parlour in Thailand.

Whilst obviously there are 1000s of non sexual massage places in Bangkok, take it for granted if there are 10 men sat outside on display, that the service will be sexual. Quite a few of them are tucked hidden out of the way so you will need to google and research your closest one.

They are pretty much all the same price, so for a 60 minute oil massage around 500 thb (£11), but then a compulsory minimum tip for the boy of 1000 thb (£22), so half the price of having a boy delivered and you get the chance to see before you buy.

Boy Show

This is probably my favourite form of selecting a moneyboy, so not sure why I have only partook in the activity the one time. Now that one time was a full on sexfest of a story, so I will give that it’s own post soon.

The way boy shows work is basically, you pay over the odds to get into a bar to watch what they call a show. Take the term show very loosely. You are looking at around 300 thb to get in but that does include a drink.

The boys are the supreme of the Thai boys. They have bodies to die for and are generally much more handsome than your typical Thai guys, much more so than the guys that you will find in the gay massage places.

They ‘dance’ around on the stage. Unfortunately I have yet to see any of them with any actual rhythm but it is still very pleasing on the eye to watch. They dance on stage usually in groups of 5 or 6 – wearing number tags.

You see a boy that you like, you tell the host you want number x, and he will be plucked off the stage to come and have an overpriced drink with you, that of course, you are paying for. If after your drink you decide you want to take him back to yours for fun and frolics, you simply pay the bar a “release fee” of around 500 thb and pay the boy direct a fee of around 2000 thb and he is all yours.

If you take into consideration the cost of entry and drinks etc then this is the dearest way to select your moneyboy but it is certainly the most fun and by far the hottest guys on offer. There is no commitment to choose a guy you can just go in for the drink and the ‘show’, and you do get to see a bit of hard cock now and then but it isn’t a full on amsterdam-esque sex show

The boys keep doing the rounds on stage until they are picked, and I always feel really sorry for the guys left over unpicked at the end of the night. They don’t get any pay for the prancing around on the stage so unless they bag a client it’s all been a wasted effort.

I always make the promise to myself to get to the gym more after leaving one of these establishments.
