You said yourself Bkk sexpats are more "self aware" than Pattaya/Sunee dwellers, that means you AGREE with Brad right? Don't worry about upsetting your little scottish pal you ARE permitted to have an opinion of your own you know.
Read their comments and mine again, Alaan.
- Brad is basically saying it's not acceptable to sit around like some uncouth Pattaya sexpat in Bangkok.
- Scottish is saying it's not acceptable to look and act like that anywhere, yet some farangs still do it in Bangkok.
Neither of them contradict each other, yet for someone reason, they thought they did and went to war...
Don't know why Scottish gets up your urethra but I find him witty and you are usually quite reasonable when not ranting about him...

And it seems that the majority of the Pattaya farang cliental (mostly retired) go for that skinny, fem type. Meanwhile, you have more of a variety (skinny, athletic, muscular; university student/ career oriented) in BKK since it is a big international city with more than just tourists who live there. Just like any big city, the young generationthere is tuned into fashion, music, and just more "with it". With what I have seen, there are very few Pattaya money boys that go to the gym to stay in shape (but why should they when they are told how beautiful they are by someone who is 50 years older than they are?); meanwhile it is the norm in Bangkok for many gays to take care of themselves. Also, the gays in Bkk know how to dress better than the country boys that are stuck in Sunnee plaza; infact, I ran into a fellow in Boyztown the other day and he had never been to north Pattaya. True, the commercial boys are in Bangkok; but one can also run into Thai gays who (like in the West) have full time jobs/careers and just want to meet/ chit chat over a drink at one of the gay bars. The "non commercial" gays here (older than 25 that have jobs) wouldn't be caught dead sitting in Sunee Plaza or at Panorama because they would be labeled as a "money boy". -Different in BKK.I
Totally agree with your assessment of the difference between meeting boys in Pattaya and meeting boys in Bangkok, Thrillbill.
Pattaya is full of sexpats who do nothing but lurch from prostitute to prostitute and think any and every Thai out there is a willing to have sex with them for cash. This is obviously going to influence how the Thai boys who live/work there (even if they're not bar boys) think and behave... Many of them will just become full on moneyboys.
In my opinion, Pattaya is the worst place (between BKK/CM/Pattaya) to find a genuine non-commercial hook up or look for an eligable long-term relationship partner. It's a holiday town mainly catering to sexpats. Bangkok is a real city where the sexpat population comprises only a small segment of the population and has little influence on most Thais.
