New-found freedom

I love my boyfriend and have great times together. And he is always the one I am thinking of when I feel lonely. However I must say that this holiday so far has been great, thanks to the fact that I have been on my own most of the time. No more constraint for meeting boys, for elaborating plans, for early appointments : this is something I appreciate still more than what I thought.

I used this new-found freedom wisely but firmly. I can now contemplate handling a calling card with my phone number to this waiter in my favorite restaurant, and even if the chances to have him in my room are thin, feeling it IS possible is priceless. I must also thank Christianpfc, the well-known blogger that I had the chance to meet for the first time in the flesh (and in the restaurant above). Speaking with him strengthened my impression that everything is possible, and that luck, patience and perseverance could bring you much satisfaction when it comes to thai boys.

Ultimate goal : bringing cute thai boys into my room

Incidentally, lack of stamina due to weariness can be easily overcome by chemical aid. Finding easily the magic bullets could be a chore, but a friend of a friend of my neighbor told me about a shop in Sukhumwit where everything can be found for a reasonable price : very nice for my peace of mind in the very unlikely case I should need them.

So you guess than I have a great trip so far, with new outlooks opening up every day. See you to-morrow in Pattaya where I hope the mess on the beach will not put me off …. Otherwise there always will be Sihanoukville or ….UdonThani !

High cuteness ratio in Udon Thani

I had not liked my former stay in Udon Thani, mainly because of the lack of places to meet boys. Things have changed now as I have joined the mobile internet side and the Facebook community. And Udon Thani is still a place where the cuteness ratio stands very high, you can see it as soon as you leave the airport. So this time was a great one, even without any boy in my bed during the three nights I spent there.

If the Nong Khai boys had disappeared, I had just made contact with a local boy just a few days before leaving to Thailand. Barely legal, but clearly very eager to meet, without even telling about money – although a financial reward is always part of the equation. A first appointment had been made for day one in the evening, but he cancelled it at the last minute, as his mother did not want him to go in Udon at night (he lives upcountry about one hour from the main town). Finally we agreed to meet at the bus station on the following day, and he showed up almost on time. But what I saw was definitely a young-looking and shy lad, so I decided to not even try to bring him to my room. He had come to town for buying school books, so we sat in front of Central Plaza waiting for the opening hour.

Nong Prajak Park in Udon Thani
We chatted a little, but he was much more reserved than on Facebook, and he proposed to go to Nong Prajak Park ; in a more private atmosphere, he unexpectedly told me he had a hard-on …speaking frankly, I too was in the same condition, but of course no way to do anything in the park. We then went back buying his books, he his a brilliant student despite a very poor background. I added an english conversation handbook as his skills in the matter were very limited, and of course paid the bill.

We were about to leave when he said : “I go to the toilets, do you come with me ?”. And here he was opening a cubicle inviting me to enter with him ! I never had anything in a public toilet, let alone with an angel-faced young guy … It did not last long, as I quickly realised that the situation could become very nasty if someone has heard or seen something. We had enough time to kiss, I sucked him in a rather awkward position, and he obviously wanted his ass to be taken care of … The naughty little devil finally understood the situation, and reluctantly opened the door in a luckily deserted restroom. But God I was happy not to be faint-hearted ! Future encounters in a more convenient place (ie. my room …) are already on the list, I will then be sure he is legal.

Kumphawapi cutie
An appointment with another boy was planned for the next day, but his relatives did not want him to go to Udon … too risky …. although he had already worked as a waiter in a Sri Racha night club (he is the guy I was due to meet in Chainat, but he has now gone back to his family in Udon Thani province). I was expecting everything, as the meeting place was the Tesco Lotus in Kumphawapi, another small town 40 km from Udon Thani. Waiting for him gave me a good opportunity to observe the local lifestyle, I was especially impressed by the number of farangs established in the area. Finally I saw him, astoundingly much cuter than in the pictures. No hanky-panky in the restroom, we only had a short chat but it was obvious he was interested in a future paid encounter, probably in Bangkok where he would like to work. We had not talked about sex on Facebook, but he was neither surprised nor offended when I asked him if he could do everything. And he was OK to have his picture in my blog …. a very cooperative young man indeed !

Finally little activity but two fantastic encounters with two incredibly cute boys, that I will obviously never forget and try to repeat as possible. And also a lot of eye-candy all over the place, for example in the UD Town food court, where many male students find a side job at night as waiters.

Back to school, boys

You can feel it in the atmosphere : to-day the schools and universities reopen after a three or four weeks holiday. Which does not prevent the computer shop where I am now to be full with youngsters playing I do not know which games.

Some had probably made their way to Pattaya in the hope for some bucks ; I will always remember this October evening where the long gone Fogus Bar was suddenly full of boys .... with their luggage, on their way back to their homes. In one day the place had lost all its charm.

Short break with my boyfriend

The touristy part of this trip has been reduced to his minimum, as my boyfriend has just opened a karaoke in his home village and of course he has to make the shop turn.

The income is not great, purchasing power upcountry is not very high and the average bill does not reach the Pattaya levels for sure. Some week evenings can be very depressing, while Friday and Sunday allow more people to come. Those who had a chance to go to this kind of places know that the comfort is not great, but a lot of sanuk can be had. Of course some foreign sponsor helped him to start the activity, without hoping a huge return except giving a boy the opportunity to earn a decent living.

Tha Ton bridge
He could find an uncle to replace him for four days, so we met in Chiang Mai and a short drive with his car brought us to a very nice first stay in Tha Ton close to the burmese border. This place is known for its temple, which offers great views all over the region. We then went to the Tachilek market in Burma for some shopping.

No stop in Chiang Rai, so no update on the local scene, and it was then Phayao and its lake - still one of the best-kept secrets in Thailand.

And I could finally reach his home in Phrae province and see how the bar looked like : a small place in the middle of the rice fields along the local main road, with nice (female) staff and fresh beer.

It was already time to hop on the plane from Phrae and go back - alone - to Bangkok for some days.

30 October 2015


After a short warming up in Bangkok, the first part of my trip was dedicated to the north : not really a free choice, as my boyfriend lives and works there. However I had kept two days for myself, in order to check the situation in Chiang Mai.

Well I am sorry to say that the scene in the Rose of the North did not really impress me, knowing that such a claim cannot be asserted through a two-days stay. I visited most bars in Soi 6, thanks to the very accurate map provided on the Chiang Mai news website (link on the right) : most have a good atmosphere, the boys are welcoming and nice, but not in great numbers. And the sleaze factor which was permeating the famous alley facing the D2 hotel has gone : very few rough guys, and only some neat and tidy young men eager to find company for a night or support for life.

I visited only two bars in the Chang Phuak area. Freeguys was a favourite of mine but has now turned to a host bar with karaoke late evening, but the light is too weak so you simply cannot look clearly at the boys : a pity as some could be very interesting ; 200 bahts for a drink seem a little bit steep in these conditions. Adam’s Apple is little bit more welcoming but I did not stay for the 22.30 show, and the boys there are really into muscle, which is not really my thing.

Once again I was more lucky with the massage boys. I went exploring Chiang Mai Land village where there are at least three shops with boys. Despite the early hour, Sixty Nine club seemed to have already many lads available, judging from the number of motorbikes parked in front. However I wanted to try 333 Club, which is on the main street (but will change location very soon). Only three boys had arrived, most of them come only at about 7 o’clock, I chose Bank who first massaged my legs, and quickly asked me to turn over ; it did not take long for him to got to the main part, which he did skillfully despite being rather young. I asked him to take off what was still hiding his nudity, which he obliged and we ended cuddling together, as I could not take my hands off his silk-like skin.

Some further days would probably have allowed me to know the scene better, at least by visiting at more suitable times ; I have always been surprised by the fact that Chiang Mai seems to welcome newcomers rather reluctantly, and that you need more time for being acknowledged by the boys.

Starting full speed

Here I am again… looking at my usual hotel room and thinking that it is like my second home, which I think of almost everyday when in my country.

As expected, travelling with an arabic company was much more bearable than with the european ones. Two hours walking and sitting in Doha Airport in the middle of the trip was just what was needed for some relaxation. The second leg to Bangkok was flown in an Airbus A-800, which offersere really more comfort and room even in Y class.

Leaving the airport, I had to remind my taxi driver to turn the meter on, which he obliged, and he was then very delightful and chatty. I told him about the best way to go to Saphan Khwai : the shortest route is not always the quickest.

Unfortunately I felt very quickly the effects of an old sore which could greatly disturb my trip. Long and too fast walks in the airports had awakened an old heel tendinitis which could bring me to cancel some trips. I had to go to a clinic where I was prescribed some medicine which will at least allow me to walk more or less normally.

As a consequence, I did not even visit the Silom area during my first three nights in Bangkok. From my hotel, most Saphan Kwai venues are within easy reach, and then I had already two appointments with Facebook “friends”. At first I went to Be High bar, still there but with only three boys on this Wednesday evening ; unfortunately the young captain/manager is not available. All bars were very quiet and the owners quite pessimistic. However a new place has just opened, another karaoke called D-door (or something like that), next door to Haven in Soi Kawtei (where most boys bars are). There are still some cuties to be found in Saphan Khwai, like this 18 y/o karen boy, not shy and whom I will take to my room for sure.

But the main change in Saphan Khwai is the increasing number of massage places with boys ; there are two of them just under the BTS station, three more in the backsois near the infamous Phahol Cinema, and Seven which has just moved to the area behind the Big C parking exit. Add some places with both boys and girls, and Nine Spa in the Liberty Garden court, and that gives about 10 shops within in a very small area.

My first appointment was with a dark-skinned 19 y/o from Bang Na, who was OK to spend the night with me. As soon as I saw him approaching among the crowds of travelers leaving the BTS station, I knew I would like him : tall, dark-skinned and lean, so meeting exactly my specifications, and of course looking much better than on the pictures. He was a nice boy, not too much engrossed in his mobile phone, but was reluctant to kissing. I hope to see him again in Pattaya, where he would like to work in Toy Boys, where he would be undoubtedly very successful. No picture allowed for this little gem.

On the following day, I had a long bus ride to Minburi, where I had another appointment with a boy working in a 7/11 shop. I had reserved a room in a local hotel where he showed up on time. He did not loose time to open his trousers, and I must say that I liked what I saw …. Believe me, you are surely not cheated on quantity when you buy a sausage in his 7/11 outlet ! I went back to Saphan Khwai for sleeping, letting him make good use of the room with one of his boy- or girl-friend.

Time for another round

Touring Thailand in good company

Still three days … and I will escape the cold here in Europe for another one-month stay in Thailand. My boyfriend is now working and cannot leave, so we will have only four or five days together in the northern area where he is living. That will leave me a lot of free time to spend on my own : for my homework, Facebook, gay websites and forums were used much more than tourist guides !

My calendar has already some firm appointments, mostly in Bangkok. At first there will be this dark-skinned student who proposed his services on some appropriate Facebook group ; actually, he is the reason why I decided to come a little earlier than previously planned. I will meet him in Bangkok and if we get along well, I will invite him one or two days in Pattaya - where he already seems to stay more often than your usual broke student ... "I like the sea", he tells me.

There will be a promising Seven Eleven boy too (a fantasy come true !), whom I will meet in a far away suburb, fee and appointment already set. And also this pretty - legal - young thing who worked in a Sri Racha pub when we got acquainted, and has since moved to Chainat. We never chatted about sex with him, so it will be part of the thrill to get him into my room ; if this fails, I will have at least added a new province to my list !

I have also booked a three-days trip to Udon Thani, as there seemed to be some interesting lads in the area ; however most were underage, including a Nong Khai student who had been pledging his love daily for one month and has then disappeared – he has since entered a mor-lam group as a dancer. So I am still eagerly looking for someone, knowing that all bars in town have now closed. I will perhaps stay one night in neighbouring Nong Bua Lamphu, where I can only hope to be lucky.

Sure I know that inviting Facebook boys could be at best deceptive, at worst dangerous. But who could resist the continuous flow of cuties appearing daily on the social networks ? And then I regard it as a way to pay off all the time and efforts I put in learning thai ...

During my extensive researches, I was also happy to discover how many new massage places open – and close – all over Thailand . I will try some, thanks to a japanese website (listed on the right), which gives detailed maps and enough information in english. According to a thai forum, there are added services offered in many ordinary massage shops, just like in Pattaya, including in some shops I had passed by daily in my beloved Saphan Khwai area - unaware of their mere presence.

Chiangmailand massage joints look promising too, so Chiang Mai should keep me very busy for the two days I will spend there alone.The huge information available on the Chiang Mai News website (listed aside too) will be put to good use for sure !

Thailand has always something new and promising to offer ; why should I be jaded going there for my 29th trip ?

Dual pricing

As western visitors, we often feel being overcharged only beacause we are just that : farang. I can understand it when I have a to pay a little more for motosai taxis or a hotel room though even so I feel that I am being taken advantage of, and supposed to be much richer than I am. I dislike it when the difference is made not because of my passport but because of my skin color : I would like to be sure that these ubiquitous chinese tourists pay the same price as me. And I am on the verge of non accepting it (meaning : turning my heels back) when the difference is farang prices being 10 times higher, like in most national parks : this is blatant robbery, especially as the maintenance in these parks is often hardly worth even the thai price.

Until now I did not see this bad habit spreading among the boys. Street boys in Grand Palace area ask 500 bahts whatever the customer’s nationality (although I usually give more), and the massage shops have the same price list too. In the bars I never discuss the price before and will normally give some extra above the going rate if satisfied.

However when chatting with a boy online, the boy almost always broaches the topic of financial reward. So I was not really impressed when a boy I chatted with on Line, bluntly shown how natural double pricing was for thai people.

The 18 y/o boy was from Suphanburi, and was OK for coming to my hotel in Bangkok, but only for short time. There was no time lost as his brother had told me that he was OK for selling his services so I could skip the usual small talking, courting, convincing and agreeing sessions. When I asked for the price, he answered : "When I go outside, I usually charge 1500 bahts including transport, but for foreigners I ask 2000 bahts". I did not answer anything, mainly because coming from Suphanburi and going back would have cost probably more than 500 bahts, not counting three lost hours for the boy, so his final pay would have been rather low.

So I will keep his name for a later visit to Suphanburi, where I spotted an interesting cheap hotel with pool, as well as many attractions and places to visit – but there is so few interesting things to do in these provincial towns at night .... Or I will wait till next year when he will probably be a student in Bangkok.

Indecent offers

This morning, I had at first a message on Messenger at about 4.30 am (so 9.30 am in Thailand) : "open your cam and let's jerk off together" ; it came from a Facebook "friend", a young student in Buriram who seems to spend his whole life on the net where he is openly looking for a long-term sponsor. And one hour later, another distant friend in Bangkok sent me the same offer - no money asked in both cases. I duly rejected both offers, partly because I was not in the mood so early in the morning, and mainly due do the fact that I do not really know the actual age of these two guys - and in these hysterical times, better safe than sorry.

Why did I get these indecent - albeit very nice - offers ? At first I lay blame on the full moon period, and on the beginning of an exciting one-month holiday for the boys - a matter of seasonal hormonal boost. But then I thought of all what I had became familiar with, due to months of (too long) daily Facebook sessions. Athough not being able to understand 100 % of what the boys write, I am now rather familiar with the way they interact and what they think, or rather how they want to be regarded. And I cannot help wondering to see how brazen, sex-driven, shameless, thai teenagers (and probably teenagers all over the world) are now appearing.

They do not hide being gay and download lots of pictures with their flirt du jour, they use the word yet (fuck) as if fucking was as common as breathing, and their state of mind is ngian (horny) almost as often as the usual nuay (tired). And being under or over 18 does not make any difference, including for (thai) people much older.

Is it only a posture, or have teenagers changed so much since the years when we were teenagers ourselves? I would rather guess that I am the one who is naive and out of fashion.

Not that I am complaining about this new frame of mind ...

Cannot wait

I am still there and well, thank you. No new entry since my return : this can only be explained by the fact that, not being in Thailand, I had nothing interesting to share. Not that I have more now, except that a new trip is in sight.

I did not want to visit again in October/November, as this is the time I used to go when I was still running the rat race. However sometimes you just cannot wait any longer, and that is what has just happened. I am tired to chat with the boys on Facebook and telling them "sorry now not in Thailand, I will go soon". Now I do not tell anything but will warn them few days before I land again in Bangkok.

I love your wallet
Chatting with the boys on Facebook is another very addictive activity when stuck in Farangland. And looking for new ones is still better. It seems there is a never-ending flow of new young guys accepting to chat (thai language only), and not refusing an encounter or more. Most are real cuties, at least most are much better-looking than the guys in the bars … and we all know that in real life asian boys are still more lovely than on their pictures. You just have to escape those who want upfront money to be transferred for some reason, those who look for lifelong love (read : fat wallet), and of course the usual cheaters.

I remember old times when only getting some written news material from Thailand was a bliss ; now we can chat (and sometimes much more) daily with the nicest boys on earth. I can only tell myself that internet is definitely not so bad …

So I will land around October 20th for one month (still some commitments at home). For the first time in my life, I will fly with one of the Middle-Eastern carriers. Not that I like it but I really found my last return flight very tiresome (12 hours 30 in cattle class) and I love the idea of splitting the journey in two : 7 + 7 hours looks definitely much nicer than 13 + 1.

The news about the bombings in Ratchaprasong are a further incentive to go to Thailand again, if only to show that we love the country and want to support it in these sad times.

Staffing problems

During my final days in Bangkok, I took some time to visit the Saphan Kwai bars which are close to my hotel. What struck me was the poor number of boys staffing each bar I went to. In Charmming, there was even no boy available at all when I went, prompting me to turn my heels back without even ordering a drink – something I usually hate to do … Perhaps I want there too early : the boys now are very lax with working hours and often do not show up before ten o’clock … perhaps they are too busy to check their Romeo account ?

Be High gogo bar has been renovated and looks better than before. Still few boys, and still approaching even when uninvited, but the captain/waiter/mamasan is a cute young isan lad, who said me not to be available until bar closure. Drink 150 THB.

Not many boys in the other bars, and not really attractive in my opinion. I wonder if they do not keep the most handsome ones for their regular customers, as I saw very cute ones sitting in front of some places but not going inside to take care of customers … Perhaps I should have given some more time to visit Heaven Karaoke, who seem to have some well-hidden cuties ?

Times must be difficult as I saw big smiles and welcoming words from some bars owners that had ignored me before. Oasis at the end of the soi is now a TV repair shop, Waterloo is definitely a karaoke bar but massage is available on the premisess. Nothing changed for Adam, Street Boy, Staxx, Heaven and U-Turn ; one of the owners confirmed me that staffing was their main problem, due to social networks which boys prefer to use to make contact with potential customers. They now hire boys from Burma and Laos too, despite their patronage being mostly thai.

thai boy shower
On a better note, I went two more times to Nine Spa (left when entering Liberty Garden Hotel from Pradiphat Road) : this is the place where boys have their pictures shown to you on a tablet. Second time was with Laem, and on the third time I wanted to choose a new boy but immediately changed my mind when I saw Song (that I had chosen on the first time) in the flesh. Both were very skilled at their massage, and at ending it in the happiest way. Rooms are clean and have their own (cold or lukewarm) shower, prices are very reasonable. From the pictures on the tablet, and some I could see « live », I can confirm that this shop is right on if you like your masseur young and slim. Curiously enough, they do not advertise much although they had a page in Thaimassageboy website some months ago.

A stop in Magic Hands near Malaysia Hotel did not turn out as good. I had no choice of the boy, and although he was nice, I could see clearly his face only when going to the post-massage shower. He had not given any clue to a happy ending and even did not agree to my invitation to shower together. However the premises are nice and clean and will deserve a further visit.

Back to farangland now, only to see the euro in free fall against the baht and the US dollar (used in Cambodia and Laos). This will lead me to more frugal choices – if possible ! - for my next visits to the area, even if I had secured some provisions to my Kasikorn account when euro had still a reasonable value.

Little Cambodia

I discovered a new interest in Jomtian bars, but in fact I quickly limited my visits to only one of them : BC Bar, near Poseidon Hotel. They have everything I could wish : nice boys, good lay-out and welcoming atmosphere. The boys here are mainly cambodian, so I could as a bonus test my basic khmer : not really conclusive, but trying was good enough to arouse some interest from the boys – especially those not comfortable with english or thai. As a beer bar, drinks are cheap enough but they add 30 THB for boy drinks, which are then passed onto the boy, so you know where your money goes.

BC Bar Jomtian PattayaI quickly developped a circle of three boys and had good time with them although they had of course a tendency to speak khmer together. One of them spoke good english and another fairly good thai, so we could hold some conversation beyond the usual sign language. Little by little, it became clearer for me why I am more and more attracted to cambodian boys : beyond their often browner skin, and their lean body (due to a healthier food I guess), I learnt that very few khmer guys have tatoos on their skin, as those are regarded in a very negative way by khmer culture. Moreover katoeis are much less accepted in Cambodia than in Thailand especially in the work environment, hence the fact that a majority of khmer guys behave like real men, whatever they do in bed. .

I offed one of the three guys for his good looks and his limited english ; if sex was so-so, I truely enjoyed his company. However on the following day, I wanted to take one of his friends ; he had no problem about this when I spoke with him. So we were once again chatting and laughing and drinking and I was flirting with the former boy as well as with the prospective one. However at some point the latter left the table without saying anything. I thought first he had gone to the toilet, then of a visit to the local tobacco seller ; only after half an hour, boy number 3 told me my new friend was « busy », he had got a phone call of a farang who wanted to have him that night.

cambodian boyUseless to say I left angry, but not without taking the first boy for another night together. If this farang happens to read this blog, I can only call you an asshole at least if you knew that « your » boy was promised to another one that night ; people with good manners don’t behave like that. As for boy number 2, the one who left, I will take great pleasure ignoring him next time I go – supposing that I can resist to his beautiful smile of course.

Beyond this disappointment, I miss the atmosphere and the boys there, and hope they will stay long. This bar has already a good patronage, but thai authorities likely give them a hard time more often than it suits.
