    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
    A few things weren't said, so I'd like to add. ST/LT. It's very helpful to set expectations, in order for both you and the boy to be happy. Standard ST from a bar is about an hour. LT does not have to be overnight. LT can be 3 hours, or whatever you agree on (and that's what I'd recommend. More relaxed, less rushed, etc). Highly recommended to spell out precisely (and perhaps crudely) what you want to do in the room. Sounds weird, but you must do it or risk disappointment and misunderstandings.

    About the legal stuff. Yes it's "illegal". But what two people get up to amongst themselves in a room is NOT illegal. So don't feel like you're doing something wrong..you're not.

    Escorts in Europe: This is nothing like that. Please don't treat them as if that's the case. Thailand is completely an alien land. Don't bring European expectations.

    In room: 99% of the time, you'll be using your hotel room or wherever you are staying. These boys are NOT the sketchy tweekers like in the Prague train station.

    A warning: as the other posters said, this is going to change your life...for the better.

    Yea, If you're a movie buff, check out the Grodecki films "Body Without Soul", "Mandragora", and "Not Angels But Angels", pseudo-documentaries about the rough trade in Prague (circa 1990's). But not really related to Pattaya. My point is, please treat the boys with respect and love (but do lock up your stuff LOL).

    Maybe. Maybe not. This is Thailand, and the price is whatever you agree. He may welcome a night in more comfort than he gets at home, or he may want to get home to his family. You don't know.

    Don't overthink it. Although it's good to have some idea about how things usually work, your questions read as though you believe (maybe only subconsciously) there is a rigid set of rules and if you ask enough questions you will achieve certainty. That European mindset doesn't work here.There are no such rules, just some cultural assumptions (and maybe cross-cultural misunderstandings!), and every encounter is different.

    There was coffee shop in Central station in Prague in 90's. About half of "inhabitants" were working boys. Most of them were homeless boys from another countries like Slovakia, Ukraine or rural areas of Czech Rep. Cheap and fast sex was easy reachable and price sometimes was hamburger from McDonalds.

    STD were common there as well, drugs using too. Most of them were "gay for pay" - i.e. straight boys who sell asses for money because of been jobless. They used that location as "a hiring point" because in about 150 meters was located hostel for homeless. So at late evening "unlucky" boys without clients went to spend night in that hostel for to came to coffee shop at next afternoon for to hunt for clients again.

    It is worth emphasising to a newbie that Thailand's commercial scene is very different to the European model. I too remember Prague in the late nineties; there was in my view an ambiance of danger, even menace. And outside the "houses" like Blue Boy, I even sensed it in some of the hustler bars of Amsterdam.

    Thailand is different. And much, much better.

    Re: Hotel Etiquette (1st time traveller)

    Thank you guys. I am also coming to Thailand for my first time in December. The information I have learned from this forum and this Thread especially is very helpful to me. Like @Max6969 - I am a bit nervous not knowing what to expect, and what dangers might exist. You guys have eased a lot of my concerns - and I love how many of you have said that this will be a life changing experience. Thank you for sharing.
