    Ah...the Pattaya heat must be getting to me!
    I think you’ll find the Forum’s most persistent Cheap Charlie has already expounded on it at length when the proposal was first ventilated

    Ha I don't know which was funnier there, JB's original post or Gerefan2 thinking it was a serious interaction :-) Ha the very idea of Jelly standing at the door of his hotel seeing out his boy de jour while asking for a VAT invoice for services rendered as the boy left - classic :-)

    I find “So many money boys on here” the most effective throwaway comment. The most common response is “do you mind?”

    I tend to word it in the reverse i.e " great that you can come and see me - and as Im assuming you're not a money boy that you're coming for fun not money - right ?" and then let THEM say no to that suggestion. Unfortauntely it's little odds most times as many "just for fun" boys end up coming out with the "yes Im here just for fun.....but maybe you can help me with my school / taxi / family / dead realative / new phone / rent / insert bullshit excuse of the day that they think will work best on you".

    So maybe easier just to cut to the chase and just go straight to the assumption of them being a MB anyway and tell them you'll be giving them 1000 baht when done and then they can bugger off and leave you in peace so you can sleep / go out etc ......and if they're offended by the very idea of that they can always come and decline the money anyway ( as rarely does that happen of course - but yeah sometimes it does and that makes it even better!! )

    If it's just a random guy you're chatting with, I don't see the harm in asking. It's not like they're going to be offended by it. If anything, most would probably take is as a compliment and think it's funny, because that means you think they're cute enough to actually pay money for.

    I always just asked. Not if they were a money boy or not, but I asked, "What are you looking for? Friend? Boyfriend? Fun? Fun with money? Or what?".

    Always worked fine.
