  1. 1 They almost always recognise you, but frequently don't remember your name. An exception was one of the hosts at Ouds bar, who I once bought a drink for, but I had no interest in taking it further. Despite no further visits to the bar, he an Oud both remembered my name when I walked past 12 and 24 months later. 2 There are several boys who I have seen before who immediately recognize me and vice versa. There are the ones I have seen a few times who are onto me as soon as I walk into their bar or arrive in town with a phone app. Then there are the other type, who I have seen once and never intend to off again, but they try. I try to even the game up by keeping notes of who I have seen and when, on a phone app called Colour Note. Although, I often remember them as well. The list can be read before my trip as a refresher. One Cambodian lad on Grindr wanted to know how I knew his name. I had him long time one year earlier AND he was chasing me to see him again on that trip, which didn't happen only because I had to fly home. Another one contacted me on Hornet, promising all services, but I noticed our Hornet conversation from 2 years earlier. I checked Colour Note for that date and saw he was OK in bed, except he didn't want to suck.

    G Boys

    A good reminder. If interested, walk in, spend a few seconds appraising the offer, then either stay or walk right back out. Last time, I was kicking myself for not doing that, because just as as soon as the waiter tootled off to get my drink, I realized the selection was a bit rough.

    G Boys

    In December, it was larger more muscular boys & no twinks. I don't recall their muscle boys being the best looking either, but it's not an area I specialize in.
  4. I'm not sure about muscle boys, but for twinks, reasonable rates are: Bangkok: Phone apps 1000~1500 short time. Although, you might not find any takers at 1000 unless very patient. Bars 1500~2000 short time Pattaya: Phone apps and cheaper bars: 1000~1300 short time. Having said that, I only go down to 1000 if very disappointed with service. Long time 1800~2000 In Toy Boys and some of the othere fashionable bars, they might want more. One key difference, is there are loads of money boys in Pattaya on the phone apps, so very easy to fix a date at reasonable prices. Most of the lads on the apps in Bangkok are not money boys. One other way to play it in Bangkok is to find your bar boy on one of the phone apps. If you put your location near to the gogo bars and have the apps open from early evening onwards, some of the lads will be on Grindr, Hornet & possibly other apps. Sometimes they are very keen to work the app to get an off & you can check what the lad does & negotiate a tip before even setting foot in the bar. I ran some polls on tips here a few months back. https://www.gayguides.com/forums/topic/12094-2018-bar-tips-poll-results/?tab=comments#comment-127912 Finally, once you have satisfied yourself about what are reasonable tips here and by your own personal experience, PLEASE post some tip guidance on the Chinese forums. I think it is of mutual interest to ensure tips are fair and not inflating at a rapid rate due to Chinese customers paying a lot more. Unless, of course you guys are making so much money you want to throw it around to get the best service.
  5. 1 Presumably the average customer fitting your profile tips the mamasans generously. Hence the service. Who is most likely to off the boy is a separate question, but all the mamasan cares about is his tip. I shall continue to call boys over directly in most instances. So if you asked for a boy that was sitting with me, perhaps that mamasan would call him over to your table. Which reminds me, there might be another angle to this: 2 If the people at the other table had not bought the boy a drink fairly promptly, I think the mamasan has some grounds for calling him over to your table, since the whole gogo bar business works on the basis that you buy the boy a drink. However, if they HAVE bought him a drink and he is called away by the mamasan, they have grounds to be seriously annoyed. I would most likely take the bill for the boy drink out of the check bin and bring it straight over to the mamasan at your table.
  6. Not a good sign, as outside of Pattaya, the percentage of cute lads interested in mature farang tends to be low. Wouldn't stop me visiting, but I would try to indulge as much as possible before going there......
  7. Were there any boys to be had in Dalat ?

    Brasil poll

    Absolutely. If Columbus had google maps, he would have known exactly what was in the way & who knows what decisions he might have made ? Also, Columbus has probably never gone looking for a discrete sauna or massage shop hidden away in a side street. Admittedly, I managed navigating with old fashioned paper maps up until a few years ago & could probably return to that if it's too dangerous to carry a phone in Brasil.
  9. Good to hear you are not overdoing it. And working long hours does have a slight advantage of less time to spend the money.
  10. 1 This is Pattaya. Be prepared to pay boys to show up. 2 If you're having the kind of trunks off fun I imagine, probably best to make sure your villa is not overlooked too closely. Definitely post pictures. Since the best kind of pictures wouldn't comply with board rules, maybe hints on where else to find them would be nice.

    Brasil poll

    Well my mass market branded watch cost £7 and I have no ambitions of buying anything more expensive. No gold either. Where the complications would arise for me are: (i) Camera. How can you got to Brasil & not take photos ? (ii) Phone. Essential for navigation & dating. Guess I would just have to take a risk with one of my older cameras and an old phone ? OR, as I have been doing, play safe and go to Thailand.
  12. Prices are approximate, due to variation in charges Baan Silom Soi 3 (1250 ~1500 baht) Remains my preferred hotel, with spacious clean & comfortable rooms at a very reasonable price if booked some time in advance. Good size room safe & guests OK. I stayed there for the first 4 nights of my holiday again. However, as my long holiday also included several 1 night stays in Bangkok, I tried some other hotels, so that I have some "backup" hotel options. In some cases, I was booking at short notice & choice was restricted. The Nantra Silom (Approx 1100 baht) Overall, this is a terrible option. Despite great location, nice sized rooms and white décorl. It is not cleaned properly, has grubby sheets, grubby showers and the plumbing is in need of some serious maintenance. The shower valve needed special technique to switch it on and off. The toilet run continuously unless switched off at the wall. I shall not stay here again whilst under current management. Fixing all of the above issues should add no more than about 50 baht to the room rate. Adequate room safe & guests OK. But AVOID it. V-Place Silom (1000~1400 baht) This is located close to Sala Daeng BTS, upstairs from the KFC. A short walk to the public transport for a 1 night stay. Large room, but windowless, which I generally avoid,but of course it means you have no noticeable road noise. However, door to the room is flimsy and doesn’t attenuate noise from the corridor, so I was woken by other guests returning at 3:00 am. Also, the aircon temp is fixed at something near 20C, which is too damn cold when I have been getting used to 26C. Adequate room safe & guests OK. D Varee Express Pula Silom (approx. 1250 baht) Also close to the BTS, located on the same soi as G Bangkok gay night club. My room had no noise from the club or the road, but was on the 5th floor, which must help. The room was compact, but quite sufficient for my needs. Nice fresh modern décor & comfortable bed. There was a long desk, with a moulded chair which was actually comfortable enough to sit in. This did not have opening windows, but some of those glass bricks. The only apparent method of ventilation appeared to be the extractor fan in the bathroom, but my room was certainly fresh upon arrival. Aircon OK & controllable. Adequate room safe. I didn’t test the guest policy as I went for a naughty massage instead. However, the place was clearly popular with other gay couples & I would be very surprised if guests were a problem. I like this hotel. Unfortunately, it can take quite some time to find out which places have room safes and so on, with booking sites. Therefore, I'm thinking we could collaborate and compile hotel options in a table, something like the following example, which contains the information I first need to look at. Any thoughts on format ? Any volunteers to add something ? I suppose I need to figure out where to put a shared excel file. Note distances are by google maps, walking. I have only stayed in the first 4 hotels on the table.
  13. A two hour oil massage is normally 500~800 baht, depending on where you are. So if they are charging 2700, I would presume this includes all payment for the masseur and no tip is necessary. Before making any booking here, I would be checking that AND confirming all extra service is included, which it really should be for the price.
  14. Nothing to do with that. Of course, parts of the pro-EU media like to assume that all the voters who didn't turn out would vote to stay in the EU. They have no evidence to back this up. Well the fact is, the non-voters decided it didn't matter if we were in or out. Roughly speaking, there are advantages and disadvantages to being in the EU. My main objection was and remains excessive NET UK payments to the EU. Double the NET contribution of France. After the complete mess our MPs have made of Brexit, if there was another referendum, I imagine we would have something like 55% voting to remain & to never let our bungling MPs loose on this again. However, since over half the Conservative party AND the leader of the opposition would prefer to leave the EU (he follows Labour policies of circa 1983), I'm not sure we will get such a referendum.
  15. Here we have Mrs Thatcher campaigning to stay in the European Common Market in 1975.
