    Come on you expats please advise!

    Or aren’t any of you doing any “offs” anymore?
    gerefan, I doubt the rates are any different than when you were last there. I returned home a month ago from Thailand after being there for two years. After the lockdowns I didn't actively seek companionship but when I did,I paid about 1000 Baht/encounter. In fact still paying for "it" but not getting "it".555

    "Plenty of opinions but none of us are in Thailand, so how do we know the current rate?"

    From a bisexual Thai ladyfriend whom I've known for 11 years now, and was in Phuket for a while volunteering in a Covid vaccination centre. She's a graduate who hails from an affluent Thai family, but likes socialising with bar girls.

    There are no ‘off’ fees, no drinks to buy, as there are no open bars.

    I understood the question to be about the tip paid to the boy. There are still plenty of options on Planet Romeo, Grindr, Hornet etc.

    I've got almost the opposite experience. When I let a boy know that I'm interested in his company, quite regularly he will ask me to stay long time, particularly in beer bars. I've even had lads refusing to do short time.

    gumblebee, I don't question what you're saying about your own personal experiences, but just have to say that in 24 years...a thousand boys...a thousand offs...in hundreds of bars...in a slew of provinces, I have yet to ever once have a working boy refuse to go off for a short time.

    I have been witness to situations where a boy would refuse to go off with a farang (short time, or long time), because the farang was deemed as being undesirable in some manner or a threat to the boys wellbeing - but these occurrences are extremely rare IMO.

    As far as the topic of this thread "What is the current rate"... I'm sure the boys would appreciate larger tips at this stage considering the "survival mode" they're in, but would never complain if you tipped the same amount you've been tipping them for the past 20 years.

    I don't recall any refusing to do short time.
    What type of lad are you chatting to ? Age, build etc ? Are they looking for long term relationships ?

    I know of some who are well past their prime & nearing the end of their careers, who would be delighted to do long time, as I suspect they don't get much business.
    The younger ones seem keener on short time.

    It all depends on the boys. Yesterday I gave 500. But I am not in Pattaya. It’s probably more expensive there.

    There are some unkind posters here, not moi of course, who might ask if this says more about you or the boy.
