Once you’ve arrived in your hotel room you’ll probably find out rather sooner than later that Thai girls “function” somewhat differently from Western women in the bedroom.
To start with, Thai women have a strong sense of cleanliness and will usually take a shower before going to bed with a guy; vice versa, they will also insist on you taking a shower as well.
Especially upscale hotels and such that cater primarily to family vacationers may impose this controversial surcharge policy and require you to pay a “joiner fee”; others just want to rip you off.
(After all, in Thailand you pay for the room, not per person.) So if you plan on entertaining female guests regularly you’re advised to check in advance, i.e.
Even girls working in “normal” bars there (“normal” as opposed to A-Go Go bars) may increasingly ask for as much as 2,000 Baht for overnight services – a price which might still get you two girls in “cheaper” parts of town.
(We should add though that bar girls in most parts of Pattaya seem to set a starting price of 2,000 Baht these days, or at least give it a try, but will effectively be happy with 1,000 or 1,500 Baht.) In order to avoid an argument with your lady the following morning or just an hour later, you’re advised to always agree on a fixed price for sexual services paying a girl’s bar fine, especially with ladies from Gogo bars where rates are flexible particularly in the upward direction and some girls may ask for 5,000 Baht for “long time” services.
Some may even ask you to switch off the lights first or not be willing to peel off their towel before they’re actually in bed with you and the action starts …While an increasing number of “straight” venues also seem to employ ladyboys these days, you should in general be safe from accidentally bar-fining a ladyboy in a “regular” bar only to end up with an unpleasant surprise once you strip the knickers off her well-rounded booty (i.e.“unpleasant” certainly only if you really have no hidden desires in that direction?On the other hand, if you stay at an upmarket and more family-oriented hotel where the management is more concerned about the venue’s image and imposes stricter security policies, your female overnight guest will most likely be asked to leave her ID card or a copy of it at the hotel reception.While this is just for your own security in case you should have any problems with “your lady”, some larger hotels also have the controversial policy to charge you extra for “unregistered guests” in your room – which may mean additional expenses of 300-500 Baht per visit to your room.Then again, it’s really pointless to start an argument over it.Better just don’t go see that girl again as she’s obviously not really keen on your company or might even have a boyfriend or another “walking wallet” waiting for her.Bar owners usually pay their employees monthly salaries, and the “bar fine” is the fee charged by the bar for taking one of the service girls out during her regular working hours.Bar fines are 300-500 Baht in most beer bars around Pattaya and approx. Please note that bar fines have recently been skyrocketing in many chrome pole palaces, especially on Walking Street, and may be even higher for “show girls”.)
