    Re: Hotel Etiquette (1st time traveller)

    May I make a general comment concerning Max6969 and his visit?

    I hope that you are getting the advice you need- you will see that there is consensus amongst regulars as to what you will find.

    So my general advice is this; don't worry! once you are there, you will see plenty of men just like you, enjoying what Pattaya has to offer safely. Remember that we ( and even more so, those seeking women) are not extras on the Pattaya film but leading characters. Everyone knows why we are there. Even people for the far north and far south....hence the number of people of both sexes who go to work there.

    And to be blunt, no one cares, as long as we act responsibly in matters sexual- that is, safely and legally- interact with our new friends with respect and generosity and ensure that our public behaviour reflects Thai and Buddhist values.

    I'm envious of you; my first visit twenty-five years ago- perhaps even that first night- was one of the most important moments of my life.

    A first visit! wonderful...amazing times ahead for you.

    AND in 2022 they made it legal for unmarried Male/Female to occupy the same room. (not that that was enforced anymore than the Gay imprisonment law)
    Sounds great,
    In Egypt even going near your Hotel with a local causes problems.
    Shame... but C'est la vie (dammed )

When I meet many (one or more every day) boys for free, I change hotel every two or three nights before staff starts to talk about me (or rather say something to the boy). This won't be an issue in Pattaya, as neither staff nor your new friend will care how many else you had in your room.
    Well before i found this Forum i watched Youtube for info on Pattaya's nightlife, just saw another one just now actually (IT IS about Pattaya Women, not boys but i work with i find, not much Gay scene video's...)
    aparently they CLAIM a woman you bring to your Hotel, could show up again since they know where you stay and cause problems if they see you with another woman. Not sure if the boys would do that... ? but i guess thats why

    Thank You for that
    I was hoping to go for my 30th birthday but pandemic prevented that, so it will be 31th birthday.
    I am familiar with escorts in Europe and i do respect the people who do it.
    I just find it confusing with Sex work being illegal in Thailand... like its not allowed but it happens anyway...
    guess i just want to know what im in for, to make sure there are no worries. better prevent than heal .
    But thank You so much i look forward to it

    Okay and what is the average ST and LT times ?

    Traditionally and, I would say, by common consent, the accepted definition of short-time with a bar-boy is, you come, he goes!

    Seriously though, short-time is as long as it takes you to have your merry way with the cute lad you’ve just off’d. But if you take too long, he'll soon let you know. Lol! If you really like the lad and want him to stay longer, you can simply ask him, but be prepared for a polite refusal. He may be eager to return to his bar and look for another off. I’ve been in bars many times and watched a punter leave the bar with a cute young lad in tow, only for the young man to return to the bar in what appears to be an unusually short space of time, strip back to his undies and resume his place on the stage. Either I’ve sat in the bar way too long, or it really was a very short-time off. Lol! Alternatively, he may have many other things to do, like meeting up with friends, going to a party or going out to a club, so don’t be too disappointed, you can ask to see him again the following night. But, thinking positively, he may agree, in that case you simply pay him the LT off-fee (or the agreed fee) in the morning.

    In my experience, if you see a bar-boy on a regular basis, as an alternative to a long-time off, both of you may wish to extend the definition of short-time without the lad spending the night with you. I’ve known many cases where after the night or day’s activities are concluded we will go out for a meal together, or perhaps go for a swim, lounge by the pool, then go out for a meal. It all depends on the relationship built up with your new found friend. The lad may be interested in seeing the same punter night after night rather than gamble on finding a new punter every night and, it is not unheard of, but there’s a good chance he may really like you and ask to see you again. Of course in the early days you may not wish to commit yourself to seeing the same bar-boy every night and decide to play the field, explore the bars and see what else is out there. That will be, “up to you” a common phrase you are likely to hear quite often.

    As regards the definition of long-time, this is generally accepted as having the lad stay with you overnight. If you want him to stop over even longer you will need to discuss the matter with him. You may well have really enjoyed each other’s company so much that, by mutual agreement, you both agree to extend his visit. But bear in mind, as a practical matter, it is entirely likely that he will wish to go home, speak with friends or family, or do any number of things, then return later in the day with a change of clothes etc,.

    All of the above is solely based on my opinion, other members may very well advise you differently. Honestly, there are so many variables and my advice, for what it is worth, is to play it by ear, have a great time, enjoy the experience and treasure the memories.

    Re: Hotel Etiquette (1st time traveller)

    It really is in your hands. When I was in the game, I was happy with the "you come, he go" arrangement, swearing that I didn't wish to be too involved. Of course, the gods had other plans for me....

    You have the wallet and you also have youth on your side. If you make it clear that you will pay well, you will find that the guy will be happy to miss his "second off of the night" which I always suspected was usually something of a pipe-dream anyway. Meeting friends when the bar closes may be more of a pull and so be prepared for that.

    By the way, in the bar, the smile works wonders. Both his to you and yours to him. The famous "Thai Smile" even has an airline named after it. You smile, he will smile back and you're in the game.

    If you decide to do LT with him, make sure he agrees to have sex with you in the morning - if that's what you want - and agree on what time he can leave.
