  1. You're asking for trouble. ONLY go to the well discussed saunas and rent your 'straight' guys there. Especially for a newbie, it is the safest and easiest way to enjoy the men of Brazil.
  2. It's disgusting that Thailand values the ruble over the blood of innocent Ukrainians.
  3. I've not read much info about Salvador this year as Brazil eases it's way back out of the pandemic. My last trip was full of mischief with beautiful guys at Sauna Fox, Club 11 and even at Clube Rio's. But that was back in 2019. What has survived? And can anyone provide any info on what has thrived? Thx
  4. Without the Chinese tourist, can there really be a "high" season? Enjoy it while you can.
  5. This made me laugh!!! Coffee snob/aficianado? GAY Fashionista? GAY Cocktails and lounging at the pool? GAY Wine tasting? GAY (The Bike tour sounds like a great idea tho!)
  6. THIS article below was written one year ago, October, 2021. If 17 were indeed mistreated recently, that is a serious problem, but out of 1100 workers, may simply be disgruntledness (is that a word?) The outbreak of covid-19 amongst a group of Thai berry pickers in August in Finland was a cause for concern but overall the summer season was good, at least from the Thai pickers’ point of view were the best managed to earn what would have been years of income in their home country of Thailand. According to YLE, during their two-and-a-half-month berry-picking contract in Finland, some Thai pickers earned what equals to as much as fifteen years of income in Thailand. Jukka Kristo, CEO of the Finnish berry company Polarica conforms that the best pickers in his company have net earnings of EUR 12,000 on their placards with the average being just under EUR 4,000 net. “The annual income in the farmer segment in Thailand is about EUR 800, and when it comes to an average net earning of just under EUR 4,000, it is big. And for those whose earnings approach EUR 12,000, it’s so big that the pickers can do a lot of things for their family – with these two and a half months of earnings.” Jukka Kristo says. A large number of Thai berry pickers coming to Finland work in agriculture and mainly in rice plantations in Thailand where the income level is very low. EUR 12,000 corresponds to 15 years’ salary for rice cultivation, he adds. Polarica had 1,150 Thai pickers in Finland this season and the Finnish berry picking season is well suited for the Thai pickers, as rice plantations in Thailand do not need labor during the rainy season in July – September. When the berry season in Finland ends at the beginning of October, the rice harvest will start in Thailand. Thai pickers are used to hard work and they typically work long hours. The day usually starts at six in the morning and ends around nine in the evening. Berry processing companies always strive to keep their pickers in the most profitable berry locations so it is in the common interest of both the company and the pickers that pickers move with the harvest. This year, for the first time, the Berry Companies Agreement included a statutory guaranteed salary for pickers, but only a few pickers relied on it, according to the companies. According to Jukka Kristo, the year as a whole was “just ok”. The blueberry harvest was a question mark before the start of the season, but the humidity of early June resulted in picking continuing for a historically long time.
  7. Do the boys on stage in the bars have masks on?
  8. All you prima donnas that would surely die if you had to sit in coach deserve those ridiculously high prices. 🤣
  9. "Most" now have succumbed to the peer pressure of ridiculous tattoos.
  10. This is one of many proofs that debunk all religious written word. Even if there WERE a god," it" would NEVER, EVER tell a man to write down in some magical book that you must cut off the tip of a boy's dick. It is ludicrous to entertain that thought. Circumcision is brutal, genital mutilation and it should be stopped globally immediately. While I respect the right to book-based faith, I also feel obligated to point out how ridiculous and human-made it is.
  11. The comforts of sitting 'up front' are really nice, but I get from point A to B just as fast in an economy aisle seat for a thousand bucks less. But I spend maybe half of that by going a day early, find a gorgeous, comfy 5* hotel, have a great relaxing massage, an exquisite meal in a Michelin starred restaurant and then sleep off my jet lag for 10-12 hours. The other half I then use for half a dozen offs during the week. In MY mind I come out way ahead.
