    The boyfriend experience

    Good topic. I am married to a wonderful Thai man I met in 1993. We moved to Canada together, he from Thailand, me from the US, and have made a good life in Vancouver. It has now been almost twenty years, and he wants to move back to Thailand to be with his aging Mom. Having hauled him to North America for all these years, I can hardly say I won’t live in his country, so it looks like, at age 70, I will move to Thailand next year. I will give up a lot, my community, universal health care, creature comforts and cool weather, but hey—it’s marriage and for better or worse. I am trying to look at it as an opportunity for discovery. I am fortunate in that I have a hobby that allows me to meet new people and develop community. We also have a beautiful home in On Nut. So I’ll do it, with moments of fear and sadness mixed with the anticipation. Life does not stand still even when we get old.

    Bangkok Trip Report August 2019

    Hey guys, so I've been to bangkok several times since my virgin trip in 2014, but it's always refreshing to visit again and write posts when im resting in my hotel in between breaks heh.. Day 1 Okay bad day, so apparently flights landing in Bangkok at prime time of about 11-12pm costs $150+ more than landing at 7pm, but because my hotel is about $100 /night, I decided to book a flight a day earlier, landing at bad timing of 7pm ( i still save money even though i have to stay an extra night), and thought I may have an extra night of debauchary. But I had a bad headache on Day 1 and spent it sleeping it off in my hotel room boo =( Day 2 Off i headed to Arena in the afternoon. Took a 5-10 min walk from my hotel at Le Meridien Hotel ( i love this hotel and have been using it since forever. location is good right smack in surawong, no problems with bringing boys in, nice room, i guess it may be a bit pricey but I hardly go on holidays so I don't care ha ). I always get a slight erection enroute the hot sweaty walk in anticipation of what is to come. Once I reach the building Arena is in ( i still have no idea what else this building is for, it seems super abandoned shrugs), I take a lift up to the 3rd floor. The sight of muscular sweaty guys is definitely one to behold. As always, Arena is just a very raw crude sweaty " dirty" place and I love it! Unlike the smooth/pretty boys/pretty rooms of Prince/Senso, there's just a gym sweaty muscular rawness vibe heh. One hour room for 690 baht for cream massage, i think cheapest is 590baht for oil massage 1 hour, and minimum tip of 1000 baht for 1 hour. The kind of guys here are older muscular buffish guys, not really my ideal kind of guys but I do enjoy sampling variety. I eventually choose this guy called Nots, who I actually had before in 2018 heh. He is a handsome good looking guy, decent body and cute smile. Had a nice naughty massage with lots of kissing, nipple play, sucking, groping heh. After I came, we cuddled abit and as there was still time he gave me a " thai massage" as what he called it, contorting my body in various angles ouch but very satisfying when there was the " crack " sound ha. Headed back to the hotel to rest abit and went to Jupiter! Now i used to only go to dreamboys but since my recent trips I find myself at Jupiter more. the guys here are just much more my type. The young muscular handsome jocks kind heh, also less ladyboy shows, less outright parading of just dicks in your face, I prefer the shows and boys here at Jupiter. 400 baht for entrance and drinks. Large selection of boys. And while most were wearing a singlet or shirt, a lot were still shirtless yums. Quite a few guys were my type, No.44, No. 59 ( Ok more on him later), and the guy I offed ( can't remember the number =( either 34 or 43? ) So i offed one of the dancers who appears often in the dance routines, wearing sunglasses, using the chains to jump around heh. He was hot hot. Handsome face, good body, nice arms, nice abs noms. Mamasan said he was straight but i don't really care. The things I do and fancy dosen't matter if gay or straight. Barfine of 500 baht, and I took him back to my hotel heh. Funny, cuz halfway while walking back and chatting, he asked " you don't like women right", in my mind im like " oh boy why do you think we are heading back to my hotel now handsome". I asked if he is straight/gay/like men/women and he said " men men" shrugs. Had a good make out /groping/sucking session/ hot kisser, nice arms and body to grope and touch. He came on my chest and we made out and kissed till I came >.< ok so back to No. 59. I had my eye on him since the beginning I entered. He is handsome, looks like a bad boy kind , but not the gangster kind. The kind that will take you out on romantic date but dominate you in bed. I usually like to look around and take my time before deciding on a off, usually only decide mid to late show. And urgh some female already took him for drinks. So im like okay maybe they wont off him and he'll go back on stage later. But no! they offed him boo.. So yea thats how I ended up with 34/43. But no story not over. Basically No. 59 looks like my ex haha ( like not thai boy ex, my actual real life ex boyfriend a few years ago). He's a gym instructor so yea that kind of bad boy look guy. oh yea back to the story, cuz on Day 4 of my trip, I was back in jupiter and bumped into No.59 ( BUDDEN I ALR OFFED SOMEONE ELSE OMG). Ok i'll post about Day 4 later chronologically heh.. So yea guys, if u see someone u fancy, JUST OFF HIM STRAIGHT AWAY KKZ! no complaints though, i enjoyed 34/43! to be continued... ( btw my style of writing is so that I can come back in future and reminesece heh, so pardon if the writing is abit not that great >.< )

    There is a way to possibly speed up the eventual conversion and I credit DivineMadman for first mentioning it about six months ago. Pick out of these well-positioned straight bars, sit down and order your drink. When a lady waitress lingers in search of business, politely tell her you're watching the action across the soi. Give her nice tip and she'll leave you alone. She certainly prefers a gay customer to no customer. Do this once and the staff will recognize you when you come again and leave you be. You get a great view and they get their tip. If the owners see business on the upswing, they may even take on a cute guy to attend to the new trade.

    Once in a while I check a website called bangkokeyes.com to see the latest nightlife news. The August 2019 edition has a few snippets about Chill Out Boy Bar in Patpong 1 being closed with a photo. It also mentions Bangkok Massage moving from Soi Twilight to Patpong 2 (with photo), and this - "The newly relocated (from Soi Twilight 2 months ago) Hotmale Bar Beer is in the process of renaming themselves the Midnite. Located next to Pinocchios. We'll attempt to get some comprehensive pics next issue.... " If you've never visited bangkokeyes, take a look. It's predominantly aimed at the straight nightlife venues, but they don't discriminate. Their archives are extensive, and there are many old photos taken on Soi Twilight showing the lighted signs of the bars that were there. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, the archived page from 01 JUN 2019 has a whole article dedicated to Gay Patpong and Soi Twilight. I am copying a couple photos from their website here. I hope I'm not violating any rules in doing so. These photos shown here are the property of Bangkok Eyes, not my own. This last photo is a map of Patpong showing the gay businesses. The lavender colored ones are listed as gay in their website as of April 2019. I think by posting this here, it will boost the readership for the Bangkok Eyes website.

    Bangkok Trip Report August 2019

    Day 3 Headed to Senso! Walking along the corridor pavement outside Senso is always filled with excitement. Cuz its just so open, people in front of you/behind/opposite the road can see you going into Senso ha, although they probably not care less but im always so consious about it that i'll always always overshoot Senso, then backtrack again and enter lol.' Senso opposite of Arena, is more refined, somewhat younger cleaner muscular guys. Place is cleaner/classier as well. Rooms more expensive, 1000 baht for 1 hour room with minimum tip of 1200 baht for 1 hour. To me everything is all about the boy, no matter the room/ambience etc. But yea it's nice to see the hot guys in a well lit decorated mini bar/gym kind of place. There were about 10 guys, muscular and shirtless, evident from their recent gymming. I chose my regular guy Tim ( his pic is on the senso website) - a handsome, lean, quiet guy, but delivers an awesome massage and sensual experience. His massage is one of the best I feel in terms of technique and strength, I do walk away feeling massaged properly with knots gone and relaxed. Not only that, he does this sensual thing, my fav part is when his whole body is pressed against your back, his hands interlocked with your hands, and you can feel him breathing deeply down your neck, nibbling ur neck/ears, and his tool hard against your lower back, and his oiled up bod sliding up and down ur back - i guess this is the standard body to body massage? but it was hott.. sensual kissing with tongue and I came pretty soon , and ended up cuddling for a good while before showering. He is a quiet guy, dosent ask all the qns like what most massage boys do - " where u from, how long u in bangkok etc", but he gives a solid massage and everything else - well recommended. After resting and pondering what my next adventure will be, I decided to just check rentmen and for the first time I booked someone from there ha.. This thai/phillipino guy who's ID is Gorillasian lol.. honestly it was one of the best sex i've ever had, guess it comes with the price tag, but really, I guess most of them are all professionals. It was hott hott.. The guy was handsome, muscular, great bod, great smell ( he walked from the BTS to my hotel and was mildly sweaty ha i love it), great attitude and romantically dominant. made out a lot, groped, licked him everywhere, sucking. I guess the attraction of finding someone online is how convenient it is. No need to go to a bar to find someone u want, fighting with other bar goers to quickly off ur boy before they do, no need to walk under the sun to a massage place heh. The only thing is that i've had experiences finding someone on Jack'd who dosen't look like their pics ( happened twice before, while ultimately they still looked decent and I wouldn't have minded going thru with it, it was nothing like their hott hott model pics online). But on rentmen, there's this "gold " member escort thing, i guess it means that they are certified that their pics are real or something, and I thought this guy was kinda legit based on the reviews so I just went for it heh.. Headed to dreamboys! There were 2 seperate bars - dreamboys and dreamboys paradiso, apparently 1 starts at 10pm and the other at 10:30pm, so i guess the performers will just repeat the show at the former and then head to the other. It seemed a bit messy, like boys and performers were walking through the bar among the bar goers , in the middle of performances to go to the backroom to get prepared or something. I didn't really like the big pillar in the middle because you wouldn't be able to see half of the stage, unless sitting right smack in the middle. Few boys, maybe ~ 15, although it was a thursday but thought there would be more. Performances largely the same as at the old soi twilight bar, but because of the new stage, more limited in terms of the dance routines, I thought overall less impressive than before, largely because of the pillar and lack of space. There was a new F-show though, a guy F-ing a lady boy at the end, and they will walk throughout the bar to get tips ha.. Don't really know how I feel about it, i'm more of a conservative jock F jock kind of person, would have been hotter if it wasnt a lady boy haha but thats just my preference >.< Overall I think dreamboy is still a decent place and bar, for new comers or those that hasnt been to the old one. But as someone who's been to the soi twilight dreamboys many times before, the current set up is not as impressive. Oh and of course I chose a guy - No.100. A cute thai gay guy with handsome face and good body, nice arms, nice tattoo on the chest - a boyish kind of guy. Had a good time back in the hotel kissing, sucking, 69-ing, groping him and all sorts of debauchary heh =)

    Then you shouldn't go and don't let anyone make you go. Some people, however, might find it nice to sit at a beer bar across from Dreamboys and Lucky and BKK Massage (and right near the entrance to Fresh Boys and Hot Male) and enjoy that view and the various comings and goings, regardless of the gender of the server. Particularly when business is slow the staff from any of those shops might be hanging out on the street and might even come over and chat and flirt as they did back on Soi Twilight. Again - for some people - but not everyone - it's an option to keep in mind.

    New experiences in old Bangkok

    From the Bangkok Post Thanks to the extended MRT Blue Line, one of the most fascinating parts of the capital is now within easy reach Saphan Han is one of Bangkok's oldest surviving bridges. It's not clear when it was first built, but the bridge has been reconstructed at least three times: during the reigns of King Mongkut (Rama IV), King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) and King Bhumibol (Rama IX). The one shown in the black and white photo was the version built under King Rama V. Like the world-famous Rialto Bridge in Venice, it was lined with shops. The current concrete version dates from 1962. Most Bangkokians are familiar with the name Saphan Han, but not many have seen the actual bridge, since this part of the canal had been fully covered by a market for decades. The shops were removed a couple of years ago as part of an urban beautification project. The area you'll be reading about in this article is only around 1.2km². Yet, it's packed full of fascinating things to see and do, from Wang Burapha, Saphan Han and Sampheng, to Phahurat, Saphan Phut, Pak Klong Talat and Ban Mo. To help you get a better picture of this section of Bangkok's old town, let's first define its boundaries. Starting in the north, where the new Sam Yot MRT station is located on Charoen Krung Road, the area extends eastwards to Maha Chak Road, and westwards to Klong Khu Muang Doem, the old city moat, with the Chao Phraya River marking the southern boundary. All this is easily walkable from Sam Yot station, so visitors are free to roam the area however they want to. But I'd like to recommend a route that spares you from having to walk back to Sam Yot. rom the station, follow the one-way-traffic on Charoen Krung Road to SAB junction, then turn right onto Chakkrawat Road. Wat Chai Chana Songkhram, Wat Chakkrawat and Chao Krom Poe, a 123-year-old herbal medicine dispensary, are just down the street. Between the two temples, where Yaowarat Road intersects Chakkrawat Road, lies the century-old Luean Rit community, which is undergoing major restoration. Once the project is completed, the area will be a new attraction in an already interesting corner of the city. But for the time being, Luean Rit is sealed and off-limits to the public. Incidentally, at the time of writing, on Google Maps, Street View depicts Luean Rit as it now is, surrounded by tall metal walls. However, as you move through the entrance to the restoration site, Street View shows lively scenes from before the residents moved out. It's like suddenly being transported back in time. Very cool. I recommend trying it before Google updates it. Back to our actual tour, from Wat Chakkrawat, cross to the other side of the street and take Hua Met lane, part of Sampheng wholesale district, to Klong Ong Ang and Phahurat. Along the way, be adventurous and explore all the alleyways. You might find some delightful surprises, as I did.

    Thats probably the reaction of all who live far from Thailand and whose trips inevitably are limited to once or twice a year. But having lived in the country for more years than i care to remember, the availabilty of cute and handsome young men does begin to reduce the appetite. Besides, constant bar hopping and constant massages remain expensive and most living here still have to pay for some form of accommodation. The grass is not always greener!

    Silicone Dick?

    About 6-7 years ago I got to talking with a guy at the adjacent table at Telephone. He was in his early 30's, well-built and his English wasn't bad. He brought his drink over to my table and discussed the usual things for about 20 minutes. When I invited him back to the hotel, he said, "I not big", inclining his head to his crotch. "No problem," I told him because that has never been a deal beaker with me. I paid both tabs and we walked off. When he stripped to shower, it became clear that he had what is best described as a micropenis. It seemed so out of proportion to his otherwise fine body. It did turn into a bit of a grower (finger size) and we proceeded to have a good time together. As he was preparing to leave, I reached in my pocket but he said "no, you buy drinks." I then asked if he had eaten and he said no so I took him for a good meal and some more beers. The atmosphere was very relaxed. We were both clearly enjoying the evening. Still gave him more than ample taxi money when we parted and continue to have fond memories. I'd do it again in a heart beat. All told, we made each other feel a little bit better about ourselves.

    Daily I visit this forum and read Gaybutton and Sawatdenetwork as well. Daily check ChristianPFC blog if there are new entries and every so often ShamelessMack's one as well . About twice a year a read again all my trip reports here. Yes , also watch Thai porn from time to time and pretty regularly watch again one of GHtaimove movies as well as Bangkok G Story- a lot of aerial vistas of Bangkok in those . Pass by two Thai restaurants daily and sometimes eat there. Have friend who visits Thailand regularly on business , usually in different times than me so he brings fresh news, unfortunately not from boys front as he is heavy on soi Cowboy and Nana. All that keeps me buzzed up about things Thai. Can't say I spent time planning next trip but think about it plenty and then there's spark and bookings are done. Uneven nature of work duties makes some months out of bounds , on another hand there other where getting time off is no issue even on very short notice , but of course money is. I did not notice any withdrawal syndrome because I know that at one point of year I will go, hell or high water. Long flights are no problem but jet lags are with 2 and 3 rd after arrival the worst. Before trip I don't make any plans to see particular boys because I learned over years that almost always they are not available/ interested any more / don't look attractive as before etc. so better not to be too disappointed

    My solution, at least up to now, has been to write a trip report and post it. I learn from the replies and comments. Then I take all of that I start to plan my next trip and to look at the calendar and see when that can happen and maybe a trip after that. I keep in touch with forum members who post comments but dont' detail much of what they see. And sometimes, international crises intervene favorably. Example...I've been planning a late November trip, I was also going to be in Hong Kong for the US Labor Day Holiday. The State Department sent me a warning about that...so, instead of Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, I'll change plans in the airport and have a five day visit to Bangkok. I'll check things out for November and savor the extra visit.

    'Deep tissue' massage

    Once we get past 60, the chances we’re on one or multiple meds is not uncommon. But when you look at the “side effects” information you don’t see any anything regarding how your meds may influence your massage experience. That’s why I cited the Consumer Reports Health Letter advisory and posted related links. My intention was to increase awareness but certainly not discourage the practice that I so much personally enjoy (as evidenced by my previous posts on the topic). After reading the links I was encouraged to learn that there a very few instances where individuals are advised to forego a massage altogether. In the vast majority of cases, only a change in massage technique is recommended. Here’s a few examples from the link that provides suggestions for those giving the massage: “During massage, especially toward the end of the session, use strokes that are faster and more stimulating. However, avoid deep tissue work if your client is experiencing numbness or tingling.” “Remember, too, to use great care when employing deep tissue massage and strokes like pertrissage, friction and compression when high blood pressure, blood clotting, bruising, or muscle or tissue weakness are a potential problem. Here, massage therapists may want to rely more on Swedish massage and gentle strokes, such as rhythmic effleurage and rocking.” Personally, I like to spend a few moments talking with my massage guy about my preferences (i.e., nit noi oil). If I was taking a med that can be affected by massage, this would be the time to give him any additional instructions. I probably average a massage at least every other day on my LOS trips. Like everyone else here, I want each one to end happily for both myself and my masseur.

    The Plain of Jars

    From News Corp Australia The jars are spread across the plains and forests of the Laos' mountainous northern regions. Pictured area collection of the jars in a forest. Picture: ANUSource:Supplied The mysterious ‘Plain of Jars’ in Laos has long been a source of fascination to archaeologists and a site for tourists to visit. Now, experts have revealed more of the site’s grisly secrets. The stone jars, which are up to 10-feet tall, dot the landscape in Xieng Khouang Province in central Laos. There are more than 2,100 of the tubular megalithic jars in the area, according to UNESCO, which has designated the ‘Plain of Jars’ a World Heritage site. The strange megalithic structures were first explored in the 1930s, although only limited research has been done since then, according to experts writing in the journal Antiquity. While it is known that the jars were used for “mortuary activity,” relatively little is known about the specifics of the human remains placed in the jars. A 2016 excavation of an area known as “site 1” containing nearly 400 jars, however, has shed new light on the use of mysterious structures. The research reveals “a range of mortuary practices, high rates of infant and child mortality, and new evidence dating these interments to the 9th to 13th centuries AD,” experts write, in the latest issue of the journal Antiquity. Researchers found that over 60 per cent of the “mortuary population” at site 1 was less than 15 years of age, and almost half of those died at the fetal stage or in early infancy. The high infant and fetal mortality noted at site 1 indicate that ill health and/or malnutrition was an issue for the local population, the researchers write. While the remains of 18 individuals were found during a limited excavation of site 1, scientists from the Australian National University, the University of Melbourne, James Cook University, the University of Otago and the Laotian Department of Heritage say that thousands more may be interred there.

    Haha! Don't worry. I dont go for the reasons I outlined. Being attended by a female bar girl is of no interest to me. The great thing about the Soi Twilight bars was the cameraderie amongst the guys themselves. Then if you bought them drinks they would sit with you and ensure you were having a good time, even though the basic English level might not have been high. I fully realise Twilight is dead and will not come back. My point was Patpong 2 could do with a few gay-staffed beer bars. No idea whether it will or not.

    It is repulsive but if you like boy because of his body/ face / personality my advice will be to soldier on and find some activities you still can share with him. Once I made advances to barker in one of soi Twilight bars and when asked about long time option he said 'yes but no sex" , when asked why he explained that he is a top only but has non functioning silicone cock. Deal did not go through but tipped him nicely for his honesty and in retrospection I thought I should take my own advice above and find something to do with him because I liked him a lot.

    Yes, that's a possibility to have in Patpong 2, but some go go bar got seats outside where you can view the people and even the boys parading (like in-between New Dreamboys and Paradiso where you can also see their boys parade with numbers as they transfer from these two bars).

    You are 125% right but even best memories will not help with challenges at present. Soi Twilight is gone whether we like or not and now we need to find ways to make ourselves at home where venues are. Dwelling in ruins , even in soi Twilight ruins is never of any comfort.

    To answer your question, one of my solutions is to waste a ridiculous amount of time on chat forums like this. I also rent out spare rooms in the house to cute Asian students, although obviously the limit of this is chatting and looking. Ultimately, life goes on. Plan your next trip, even if it's 12 months later. Try & figure out how to configure your finances and life so you can spend time wherever you like -generally involving saving a shed load of money, or having some kind of business that can be operated from anywhere in the world (I think there's at least one prominent individual here in the latter category).

    Some reviews from my July Bangkok trip

    Staying in Nana/Sukhumvit and going back and forth to Silom/Sathon is no issue - I have done that numerous times when staying at high-end hotels in Ploen Chit, Asoke or even Prom Phong. BTS to Silom (or bus to Sathon - you need to change bus at Centralworld) and a short taxi ride back to Sukhumvit at night. Should be no more than 100 B (by meter) if you go to Rama IV and get a taxi from there (it is actually surprisingly quick to get to Sukhumvit via Rama IV at night). No need to regret or cancel a (non-refundable) hotel reservation in Nana. I'm quite sure that most/all hotels in Nana have a flexible quest policy - you will understand why when you get there and take a walk in the area.

    Strong baht hurting tourist arrivals

    My advice was to travellers only. But it wouldn't hurt if people contemplating move to another country permanently considered it as well and thought 'what will happen if my currency goes down by half and at the same time prices in my new country will go up twice". I understand your point about expats but those you describe are victims of lack of foresight , poor planning and bad luck. In most cases they have nobody to blame , even themselves, it's just circumstances did not work to their original specifications. Changing countries and environment always carries both risks and rewards and one who decides to move must expect first but at the same time hope for the second. Burning boats is good for a movies but very rarely works in real life. We tend to forget that with age our health is expected to deteriorate and day may come when we need somebody to make us tea and buy us bread, then that boat may come handy. So many now are paying price for having those boys in their bed for trifling cost as you said. Nobody was complaining before that having guy long time costs less than train ticket to the airport at home. Most of us are coming to Thailand for illusions, it turns out that some of those illusions are not what we hoped for.

    A big first world problem

    Personally I think the casual racism on the board is astonishing, but it seems to be limited (I hope) to a few complainers. The adage among the happier expats in Thailand is, "Don't try to change Thailand. Let Thailand change you." You don't necessarily have to believe that 100%, but it's an essential thought experiment for any good expat or traveler.

Unless car ownership-or in the US, assault-weapon ownership- is considered the summit of achievement, then we should welcome the fact that some people don't care for it. I've travelled widely over the past decades; there's nowhere I've visited, however poor, that hasn't got something to teach us. And that includes Thailand.

    The Plain of Jars

    Me and my partner rented a 4WD in January and drove north towards Phonsavan via the eastern route. We made an overnight stay in a small village along the way. Roads were fairly good, save for a few kilometres with gravel roads due to roadwork. But, with the road full of chicken, cats, dogs, cows, and children we could hardly drive faster than 40 km/h. After Phonsavan and looking at some of the jars, we took the western route via the banana pancake town of Vang Vieng on the return to Vientiane. Here, the road up until it joined highway 13 (Vientiane-Luang Prabang "highway") was surfaced, but it was a long and winding road. We stopped in a small town about 54 km north of Vang Vieng, and spent the night in a local hotel. No English spoken in neither of the small towns. Road 13 is in a dismal state (picture below), and the heavy truck traffic made it worse. I believe this is the main transport route from Vientiane into China. We did it in three days,, two nights, all in all a lovely trip.

    Silicone Dick?

    I don't have any advice on how to handle it when you bet him to your place and see it for the first time. However, you are correct that it is not a pretty thing to see. So, I agree that it can be repulsive.

    I got back from a two-week trip to Thailand and have felt a deep postpartum ever since. I miss the food, the street life, the boys, the sense of adventure, the shows, the massages -- all of it. In an attempt to soothe myself... I have re-read everyone's sexual escapades on the forum. I have watched every Thai porn vid on Pornhub. I've tried to recreate Thai food on my own. I've cruised the boys in Thai Town in Los Angeles. I've gone to the cruisy Korean spas, in an attempt to replicate Babylon. However, I am still missing Thailand dearly. Are there other websites, video sites, places you go, things you do in order to hold onto that special feeling?

    Some reviews from my July Bangkok trip

    The recent rate of increase there seems some way ahead of the general rate of inflation and hotel room price inflation. Often I see prices in hotels are quite flat, unless there is a major refit or upgrade to the rooms. Has that been the case with the Malaysia ? I believe Oyo is an Indian franchise operation, with hotels in multiple countries.

    A model for others

    The Thai public school a reputation for adhering to a strict rote learning approach to education. News about the this innovative project (and he one in the previous post) I find encouraging. From Channel News Asia Can ‘alternative schools’ revolutionise Thai education and improve children's capabilities? HUAY PAN, Thailand: The school children of Huay Pan are getting ready for their afternoon lesson where they will be taught about water. There is nothing particularly unusual about what their teacher has got planned for them, with one exception. The classroom will be the Nan River, a 740-km tributary that flows through their little village in one of the most remote parts in northern Thailand. Eight students aged between six and 14 swim to a clearing on the muddy riverbank. They sit in a circle with their teacher and discuss what they have to find out during the class. “Today, we’ll learn how to find food in the river. Do you see what your parents are doing in the water behind you?” Saranporn “Mon” Ratsiwo asks her students. “Fishing!” they all reply. “Your parents will be your teachers this afternoon. So, let’s find out what methods they use to catch fish and what else we can find in the water besides fish, shrimps and seaweed. There may be other things in there,” the teacher says to her excited pupils. The class moves into the river. Young children hold their parent’s hand as they walk on slippery river rocks while the older ones dash past with fishnets and swimming goggles. Hands-on experience in outdoor classes forms a significant part of teaching and learning at the Huay Pan Learning Centre – the only school that is easily accessible by the village children, who would otherwise have to travel up to 120 kilometres to get a basic education. Unlike Thai mainstream schools, the Huay Pan Learning Centre offers ‘alternative education’ to children from kindergarten to junior high school. Its curriculum not only covers the core subjects laid out by the Education Ministry but also incorporates lessons on issues that directly impact the village such as soil, water, forest and food security. Even more unusual when compared with mainstream schools, the Huay Pan Learning centre offers its students a say in what they are taught. Children get to choose what they want to learn and do not have to sit exams. Evaluation takes place throughout the academic year and marks are accumulated through project work. As for teachers, they are not lecturers but rather mentors who design an active learning environment and ask questions designed to trigger students’ curiosity. “Traditional education in Thailand is like learning in a small square room. But here, our students learn from first-hand experiences in their environment. They learn by seeing and touching real things, and that brings happiness to the learning process," Mon told CNA.

    Some reviews from my July Bangkok trip

    I would add Amara to the list of gay-friendly hotels. In any case, other than a handful of places that have joiner policies that are unfriendly to both gays and straights, I believe that it's difficult to find a hotel that is u nfriendly to gays.

    I like this sentence ending an article you gave us link to " Many would rather not face the truth. Many would rather let sex workers suffer silently when exploited by an underground industry, so that Thais can continue to smile. ", how true !

    Dreamboy Paradiso

    There is a Dreamboys and a Dreamboys Paradiso. Same management, entrances are just a few steps from one another. Lucky Boys, Freahboys, and HotMale have all relocated there.

    Boston could be nice for a day or two. It's a nice small manageable city. Some interesting historical walks you can take showing famous places in the history of the fight to overthrow the cruel British tyrannical overlords. I especially like to go to the tavern where, they say, the Revolution began because a British soldier failed to tip a tavern maid. Boston is nice, but you might find it a tad boring? Highly recommend Provincetown. Lots of ways to get there, including a ferry to/fro Boston. It's a quaint-ish old New England town that is just chock full of the gays. Very fun. You go there and relax for a few days. Lobster salad sandwiches by the harbor. Very open and welcoming gay scene. If you really want to get your gay on, you could go to Fire Island. You can get there by train from NYC. Fire Island Pines for glamour and pretty boys. Cherry Grove for less elitist gays and more lesbians. I don't know about hotel availability. Expect they would be expensive. You spend half your time on the beach, half your time tracking down an Ecstasy connection and the remaining half of your time dancing and fucking like a bunny. (Yes three halves, because, as everyone knows, time slows down on MDMA.) People really love Philadelphia (and you can get there by train from NYC). The Maine shore is lovely, to drive along. As a gay you would be required to visit Ogonquit harbor. But unless you want soulful selfies of yourself with ocean waves crashing along the rocky shore in the background, not sure all that interesting.

    Introduction

    Guys - VCK is a brothel. So is Prince. (For that matter, so is Bangkok Massage, Myhero, etc., etc., etc.). So are most of the other shops we discuss. They don't provide much training, don't advertise as having trained-and-licensed masseurs. You might fid a guy who gives good or great "legit" massages, but that's all upside. Don't go in expecting it. These places offer erotic/sensual "massages" for relaxation and foreplay, plus sexual services. That's all that you or I can realistically expect at these places. That's what you get for the advertised price. If you go with those reasonable expectations and understandings you will more likely than not have a good time. Asnstudent has it right. There are other shops that advertise or try to distinguish themselves more on massage skills, or that don't so much hire the pretty boys so maybe the massages might be a tad bit better. If that's more important, then don't go to VCK, Prince, etc. It's really that easy. If you don't like the cost - don't go. Go elsewhere. And be happy. Asnstudent also has it right that 9:30 meeting means 9:30, not 9:35.

    Thank you for reporting on what is one of the most discussed guys in recent forum memory who--up until now--was pretty much an enigma. Actually, he will probably remain so because you were wise enough to omit the complete details. Leaving some things to your discretion and our imagination is appreciated as both you your guest deserve some privacy.

    To continue my report, this is one of the most exciting experience I had in Bangkok, I went to Prince Massage. Finding this place is like finding a treasure in a map. Actually, I screenshot the map in their website so I could navigate it easily since its only walking distance from my hotel, but I still got lost, lol. Its a very good thing BKK people are very friendly and helpful to tourist & after asking a lot of people, I already saw the sign of Prince, its a hidden gem actually but its really, really worth it when you found it. Upon entering its courtyard, it got lot of plants and greeneries which can immediately make you relax. This is the classiest massage place I've ever been. The walls are in glass and upon entering the glass door, you can already find a lot of hot guys in glass, some are working out at the gym, some are playing billiards while the others are seating in sofas busy with their smartphones. What a very lovely way to greet their guests, with a lot of muscles to see since they really got well-defined bodies and a lot are good-looking. I was greeted by this soft-spoken manager (or receptionist?) wearing Prince shirt. Then the guys, just like in other massage places, lined-up when I was already talking with the manager who explained to me the services, rooms & tips. When I already decided on the type of massage, he asked me to pick a guy as my masseur. Wow, this is so exciting. I really had a hard time selecting a guy since almost all of them are hot. I really look on this guys one at a time from face to muscular bodies, then going back staring again. So I just said to the manager if the very hot guy from their website is available and I show him his picture. I noticed he is not on the selection. Unfortunately, he does not report today, sigh, I really, really want him I said to the manager. I'll call him Mr. Hot Guy. Its a very good thing the manager was so accommodating he called Mr. Hot Guy and asked him if he will come later. I almost jump from excitement when the manager told me Mr. Hot Guy will arrive in an hour, and if I could wait. Of course I said YES with a smile. Then he confirmed it with Mr. Hot Guy on the line and asked me to wait on the couch and gave me a glass of water. While waiting, I read some free gay magazines on the hottest gay spots in BKK complete with map and list of places, and also features the hottest Thai guys. I remember having copies of it before so I asked the manager if I can have a copy as a guide, and he nods with a smile. While waiting for Mr. Perfect Guy, I noticed the other hot guys are trying to catch my attention by lifting heavy dumbbells and barbells, but I just smile. It also gave me the chance to check again the other hot guys filled with muscles. Ah, this place is heaven, ha ha...and very classy, I like the interiors btw. Alas, the manager said that Mr. Hot Guy has arrived and it got me excited. He shows me this corridor with glass mirrors and from there I saw Mr. Hot Guy. He's shirtless and wears a pants. I could see the muscles which made me hard and his flawless skin. Wow, he's hotter in person, I even said that to him and he smiles when he heard it. He guide me to our room while I kept glancing on him. The room was also very, very nice. Its the standard room btw with a small table where the oil for the massage and tissue was placed, hanger for the clothes and at the end of the bed was the shower in silhouette glass divider with sliding glass door. Mr. Hot Guy asked me to shower first. I said "Yes" but in a very sweet voice I said "But can I touch your muscles first?" And he responded with a smile "Of course". I wasted no time touching his muscles and abs, wow this made me really hard. He even said that he didn't have that much time to go to the gym but I said no way, ur gym fit which made me smile. After enjoying his muscles, lol...I started undressing so I can hit the shower while he excuse himself and left the room. While showering, I heard Mr. Hot Guy returned to the room. I can see he's already undressing as I saw in the mirror in front of the bed. What a view!!! I'm surprised he join me in the shower in his naked glory, haa haa. I immediately said to him if I can soap him and he said okay. Wow again. I'm a bit shy that I had an erection, lol. Then he also soaped me, even my very hard m*nh**d, and I also does the same to him to break even, ha ha. After showering and drying ourselves with towel, he asked me to lay on the bed, face down. He started with my back. He is really good in massage, I guess from experience, and we're having a non-wholesome chat while at it. It tickles me when his m*nh**d brush to my body. I'm surprised its also hard. Then he asked me to turn. And I can see he is indeed hard, wow. I also could not hide my full erection, he he. Then he massage me at front. Then came the most awaiting moment for me. He immediately kiss me on the neck which sends shiver to my body. He's an expert I can tell. And he moved to my nipples which made me moan and groan. Mr. Hot Guy is really an expert in l*ck*ng. And I was surprised he kissed me on the lips, I even felt his tongue moving on my mouth, which also made me do it. Wow! And to my biggest surprise, he gave me a bj. And he's very good to s*ck to my surprise. And if it still not enough for a surprise, he raised my legs and gave me a r*m, my 1st time actually. I'm really trembling with lust at that time. Afterwards, he asked me if he can penetrate me but I said wait, wait, wait, he said I can manage his size. Then he asked if he want to f*ck me or I want to f*ck him, only one, he said, so in a very sweet voice I said "can I f*ck you?" which he responded okay. As I lay on my back, he slipped a condom to my m*nh**d and put a lube on it and at the same time on his h*l* while he's on top of me. While he's getting ready, I keep glancing on his muscled body and flawless skin and I can't believe this is happening (a dream came true perhaps). Then I can feel he slowly inserts my m*nh**d on his h*l*. He's starting to sit on it. And I'm not sure if he's getting hurt or enjoying it with his reaction. Slowly I'm getting inside him and I hope he does not get hurt. When I'm already fully inside him, he paused for a moment. I enjoyed seeing this in the mirror. Then he started p*mp*ng slowly first then get's faster and faster. I could even hear his *ssch**ks slapping my skin. What a moment! After a while, I asked him to stop first and while I'm still inside him moved him so he lay on his back with legs raised up. Now its time for me to p*mp hard. I can hear he is enjoying it now. I moved on a maximum speed. I also admire what's happening while looking in the mirror. Then while still inside him, I slowly turn him on a side position, raising one of his leg. I teased him slowly again then in full speed. I can see in the mirror how hot this scene is. After that, I slowly moved him in a doggy position and moved closer to him so can penetrate him deep. We're both catching our breath this time. I glanced again in the mirror and I like his reaction with this style while I moved in and out faster again. Lastly, I lowered his body, face down while I'm on top of him without removing mine. I ask him if he's okay and he said "yes, yes". I p*mp*ed slowly again then faster and faster and in every thrust I can hear his moan & groan. When I'm about to c*m, I removed my m*nh**d on him and let him m*st*rb*t* me. My c*m sprayed like a fountain. Ah that was nice, very nice! I also j*rk-*ff him til he c*m. Then we showered together and soap each other. Of course I doubled the standard tip since I'm really, really satisfied. Then we hug each other and said "I'm gonna miss u" and then we kiss on the lips, no tongue this time, he he. Then I left the room, walked on the corridor with mirror and the manager thank me and I also thank him in a Thai hand gesture. I left the glass door with a smile on my face. Looking forward on my next itinerary @ night MOONLIGHT...TO BE CONTINUED LATER

    I've heard readers describe his ass in detail but never as dumb. If he were to be sent to prison, guys would be queuing up to get on the conjugal visit list.
