Sex in Chiang Mai
I can always tell the guys who are new to prostitution, when Mamasan lines up the girls in Karaoke or Soapy Massage Parlors and the guy asks to talk to them first. One of the best parts of being with a prostitute is you don't have to talk to them if you don't want to. It's typically the guys that can't speak Thai that would ask to talk to them which often makes no sense since you can't communicate! If you speak Thai it's likely you'd know what's going on and pick one. The truth is there's not much to talk about except the price.
Because of the freelancing bar girls I often think that guys don't even believe it's prostitution. You walk into a bar talk to a girl have some drinks meet a girl and take her home, you give her some money and she leaves, yes you are always paying her to leave!
A Monger is someone who I think of as an experienced prostitute hunter, they are able to sniff out pussy for sale no matter where they are. Mongers are all around you in Thailand you're probably good friends with one now and don't even know it. For a lot of mongers they can't be open about who they are because the shame that society will place on them. People go as far as taking photos only at temples and playing golf everyday to prove they weren't whoring around. Doesn't matter what city you're in, whoremongers are there. They probably change their web status to say "lives in Hong Kong" or update their Facebook page in Florida, they probably have a job teaching students or an online reputation they don't want tarnished. Of all those guys, 80% of them, have paid for prostitutes.
Some guys get fooled into paying for a prostitute not realizing until the next morning when she's demanding money or getting 500 baht for a taxi but instead jumps on a bus, there are many ways one can unwittingly go with a prostitute in Thailand, amazingly many prostitutes in Thailand will even sleep with you for free!
I think the cost of sex is all relative and open to interpretation. Some say sex in Chiang Mai is expensive yet I was in Nana Plaza the other night the girl wanted 2500 short time 700 baht bar fine and the short time rooms upstairs were 300 or 350 can't remember the exact room cost but the point is after a few drinks and an hour with her it cost me 5000 baht. Whereas in Chiang Mai you can get sideline girls for 1500 bar girls as low as 1000 and short time rooms for 120 go go girls for 2500 and Karaoke girls for 2000-3500 with none of the hassle you feel when you're in Bangkok or Pattaya. Actually you can get those prices in Bangkok just as easy, I just used Nana as an example.
I love Karaoke, Bangkok is the best place but Chiang Mai is also very good. If you've seen around the places with a KTV sign, these are the Karaoke Houses people always talk about getting robbed at. But it's typically that the guys had never been before and asked to "talk to them first". The KTV places you don't have to get anyone drinks or even sing karaoke. Walk in and make sure you ask the mamason only for the girls that do OT (overtime) personally I typically hand the Mamasan 500 baht for taking care everything for me but that's entirely up to you. Don't be deterred if one place isn't helpful, leave and try the next place, if you're worried about cost never order a drink just ask for Girls who do OT and don't sit down. Remember you enter one of these places at your risk, these places and what goes on in them is typically illegal. It's also a good idea to know where the short time hotels are first before going.
If you watch the following video you'll see a claim that there are 5000 prostitutes working in Chiang Mai. While that seems high it's probably about right if you include sidelines. Contrary to popular belief, the western sex tourist or sexpat is only a small percentage of the overall sex trade in Chiang Mai, it's the Chinese, Malaysians, Japanese and Thai's, mostly Thai's, that pay for sex in Thailand, obviously because these races make up the bulk of people here as well. White guys are always looking for free pussy, a lot of the tourists who come here are the kind of guys who's best night out would be a girl buying him drinks and then shagging her in the hostel toilet while fucked up on buckets.
Out of the 5000 prostitutes in Chiang Mai most of the best looking ones are in Karaoke but since most of the girls are new to the profession it's harder for a westerner (or African) to go to these places because the girls "are scared of Farang". What it boils down to is the girls are scared you have a big dick and they can't communicate with you. The way around this is either to speak very good Thai or spend some time liquoring her up inside the room.
The Karaoke scene has changed a lot at least here in Chiang Mai the prices have gone up considerably typically averaging 260-300 baht an hour for the girl plus added drink fees and Mamasan charges. Girls now have to stand inside the doorways instead of waving down traffic on the road which was a little tacky in fact Chang Klan road would have accidents every night because people were getting distracted! But the amount of girls selling sex in Chiang Mai Karaoke's has increased 3 fold. Well to do Thai's and Expats as well as businessmen and foolish tourists spend millions of baht a night in these establishments across Chiang Mai.
While the video says the girls are aged 13-18 that's just nonsense, remember she only spent a month here. I'd say the average age is 19 but yes there are instances of girls who start in the industry at 14. At this age their parents probably can't afford to send them to school anymore and through an underground network are coaxed into one of these places. Sad as that is it's very rare that a girl that age is hooking, she's more likely just dancing as in the case of a Coyote House or as a PR girl at Karaoke. It's also difficult for any Thai to get a job under 18 so for most young women in struggling families this is the only option. That is life.
Most of the girls working in Karaoke make around 15,000 baht a month that's without turning tricks. This is double what the girls could get working a regular job. A lot of the Karaoke houses put pressure on the girls to go with customers, drunk with lack of judgment, girls with less willpower unwittingly become prostitutes.
I think if you're going to be a whoremonger here or anywhere you really can't think about what it's like to be her, when you start care soon enough you stop whoring.
I don't understand why all these missionary people keep coming here trying to save the world turning people to Christ and getting them out of the bars. There's enough problems in your own country than to come here and try and save people. There's 5000 prostitutes in Chiang Mai, woop dee doo, have you ever been to Vegas? I could understand if your country was hooker free and you wanted to make this place hooker free too but it isn't, you wasted your time.
The different sex scenes in Thailand I don't look at as having certain advantages or disadvantages more like different opportunities. A whoremonger in Chiang Mai will go through all different fazes, from bringing girls up from Bangkok, trying the local brothels to spending late nights at the bars and spicy. Soapy massage parlors are always popular and almost always a let down. Thai brothels for the adventurous or the Nightclubs for those with local tastes. There must be 80,000 girls studying at any of the local Chiang Mai university and technical colleges most of whom would love a sponsor and can be found on the dating sites. There is a surprisingly large swingers group who informally meet each other if you're ever down that road I sugget you check adultfriendfinder.com
