When a Thai girl makes the decision to be a prostitute it is purely for financial reasons. The ones I've spoken to would be reluctant to accept less than they already earn, even if it means being able to lead a 'respectable' lifestyle. Respectability isn't important when you have a poor family in Isaan to take care of and need to put rice on the table. Figure on an amount that is about the same as they earn. If less, most will continue in the profession. If you aren't around and are paying them not to work expect them to continue working to boost their income. Most girls do. Also, it isn't unknown for Thai prostitutes to have several farang boyfriends at the same time, all of whom are sending money from abroad for her not to work while she continues working. Some of these girls make a lot more money each month than medical doctors.
Most men retain a healthy sex drive into old age - even if they need to use Viagra and the like. At the same time, they aren't attracted to women their own age but want young girls. In Western countries it would be impossible for the vast majority to get anywhere near a young, attractive girl.
However, because there are so many people in Thailand living just above the poverty line there are young and attractive girls who are so desperate for money that having sex with an old man is something they will tolerate.
Every province has beautiful girls as well as ugly ones - just like anywhere else. On top of this there has been huge economic migration within the country with poor girls moving to other provinces to find work. The most beautiful girl I have ever met (in my eyes) came from Narathiwat. Narathiwat is mainly Muslim and it is one of the provinces that is almost completely neglected by farangs. She was Buddhist.
Thais do actually enjoy getting together and singing along Karaoke style but 'Karaoke' is also a popular euphemism for brothel. There is a lot of prostitution in Thailand and hence a lot of Karaoke shops, but never a song is sung.
'Most' Thai girls don't. I'm not sure of the statistics, and anyway, statistics vary depending on the source, but the majority of Thai girls don't have sex for money.
If you want to know why there is so much prostitution in Thailand the following might help explain.
I'm married and have no interest, however, I'm observant of my surroundings, I like talking to Thais, and I like asking questions.
There used to be a tatty old building close to where I live, adjacent to the local fresh (not flesh) market. It's been demolished now to make way for something a little more attractive.
In the evenings this derelict old place used to be home to a number of prostitutes who worked the lower end of the commercial sex trade. One offered me sex for Bt400 and because I am a farang she had probably doubled the regular price.
Also close by are a number of aap op nuat (bath and massage) places. Some of the girls are very attractive and can probably charge up to Bt3,000 for a session at the plusher places.
This is known as short-time. Once the man has finished his time is up.
There are also lots of girls who work long-time. They stay with their customer from when they meet until the next morning. I've been quoted prices ranging from Bt2,000 to Bt4,000.
There are many variables. More attractive girls charge more. Higher charges apply in places where there are a lot of foreign tourists, and also prices are subject to the market forces of supply and demand.
I've tried to explain this over several pages but here it is in a nutshell.
Around 99% of Thai girls make wonderful girlfriends, wives and mothers. They're well brought up, polite, easy-going, trustworthy, loyal and honest.
So what's the problem and why are there so many stories from farang men about bad Thai girls?
Because 99% of farang men looking for a Thai girl get off the plane and head straight for the 1% of Thai girls they should stay away from.
Every single man claims the bargirl he has found is different to every other bargirl in Thailand (they never are); the men are too lazy and too impatient to do what it takes to meet good Thai girls; and they think they are cleverer than the people who try to give them advice.
Of course you can. Duh.
They're not, but because so many Thais earn so little and because of the difference in lifestyle a little money can make in Thailand it certainly seems that way at times.
Like all people, some Thai girls are more materialistic than others and some certainly have unhealthy obsessions regarding money.
I once spoke to a Laotian girl living in Thailand who was being kept as a mia noi by a Thai man. She received Bt20,000 per month in addition to a place to live and other bits and pieces. I've heard similar figures from farang and Malaysian men who rent Thai girls.
Do it if you just need a short-term sex toy but if you are looking for a genuine, rewarding relationship with a Thai girl who you can trust and who doesn't see you solely as an ATM, I would advise going down a very different route.
If you run into problems later on what did you expect if you treat a human being the same way as you treat a rental car?
The most important thing in a relationship is trust. If you have to even think about hiring a private detective it means that you don't trust the girl so you have already lost. If you have no trust in her, finish the relationship immediately and find another girl who you can trust.
If you pay someone to spy on her the news probably won't be good and all you will be doing is paying another farang to drink in bars and associate with bargirls.
Some of these questions are great. They keep me amused for hours.
As I used to teach students, questions containing 'can' can have different meanings. Are you asking for permission? If so, I don't believe there are any laws in Thailand to stop old men having sex. And even if there were, when was the last time a law stopped anyone doing anything in Thailand?
Is it an ability question? If so, you should know yourself whether you are able to have sex or not.
Maybe the old man who asked this question really meant to ask whether old foreign men can pay money to have sex with prostitutes in Thailand. Yes, they can. No problem at all.
The only thing the girls selling their bodies are interested in is money. They don't care how old you are, how ugly you are, how bad you smell, or how frail your health might be.
There have been a few occasions in the past when unhealthy farangs existing on cocktails of heart drugs, blood pressure drugs, Viagra and alcohol end up taking their final breath while performing press ups on top of a Thai prostitute one-third their age.
It's not a bad way to go but the experience doesn't do the Thai girl involved much good.
Prostitutes are everywhere. It's easy, cheap, and - unless you're very stupid - there isn't much chance of getting caught.
Whether or not your conscience will allow you to live with yourself (as well as living with your wife and family) while cheating with a prostitute depends entirely on your own set of moral values.
Some farangs seem to think that every single Thai female has her price, and that if you offer a Thai girl (any Thai girl) enough money she will drop her knickers for you.
This is absolutely ridiculous.
The wealth gap in Thailand is huge. Many Thais are very poor and most girls offering sex for money come from the poorest sector of society. It's the only option in life the girls have to escape abject poverty and to take care of their families.
These girls usually have a limited education which doesn't extend to university. The majority of university students come from families that can afford to pay for their education. Offering the average Thai university student money for sex would be just as much an insult as it would be to offer a Western girl money for sex.
I worked at a large Thai university for about four years and met many female students. If a farang were to offer them money in exchange for sex they would be horrified.
I've heard stories of men who target university students in Bangkok and no doubt there will always be a few girls willing to sell their bodies to supplement their incomes, but this is isn't normal.
There are lots of prostitutes in Thailand. If you want sex in exchange for money they aren't difficult to find. The big mistake is to assume that all Thai girls are the same. They aren't.
The bad ones, yes. Extremely easy. Just walk into any beer bar in any tourist area. The good ones, no. Nothing worthwhile having in life comes easily. Unless you are very lucky, meeting a good Thai girl who is reasonably attractive and still single takes a considerable amount of effort, time and patience.
Thai men aren't stupid and snap up the good girls very quickly. The majority of girls making themselves easily available to farangs tend to be problematic and interested in farangs for one reason, and one reason alone. Hint: It's not your film star looks or your magnetic personality.
Some of the questions people bang into Google are almost beyond belief. Meetings tarts in Bangkok has never been a pastime I've actively pursued but I would imagine that the area around Nana Plaza would be a good place for this genius to begin.
Many men - especially those of a certain age - have physical and emotional needs that cannot be satisfied in their own countries. There are many reasons for this, but if you are a foreign man thinking about going to Thailand to meet Thai girls you won't need anyone to explain what they are.
Due to economic difficulties, there are many young and attractive girls in Thailand who would consider a relationship with a foreign man because of the financial support he can provide to them and their families.
This isn't necessarily a bad thing because all relationships are based on mutual benefit. However, if you are past your prime never believe that the relationship is about anything other than money. The girls may tell you other things but if you don't provide money the relationship won't last very long.
I know Thai girls living in the UK who absolutely love it and never want to return to Thailand. They are full of vitality and make the most of life.
On the other hand, I know Thai girls in Thailand who simply wouldn't survive outside of Thailand. It depends very much on the individual girl.
Yes, if you get involved with the right ones. No, if you don't. Read and follow the warnings and advice of those who have more experience than you do.
This is an easy one. Everywhere. "Where do I find rich Thai girls?" would have been a much more difficult question to answer. Rich Thai girls aren't generally interested in farangs unless you are under 25, rich, and you bear a resemblance to their favourite Western pop singer or actor.
In most cases the only attraction to farangs is money and this is because the girl comes from a family living just above the poverty line. You need to be exceptionally lucky to win a real lottery but in reality the closest a poor Thai girl can get to winning the lottery is to meet a farang man who will take care of her and her extended family for the rest of their days.
The bottom line is that you don't have to worry about meeting poor Thai girls because they will make a point of meeting you.
This is one of the best questions I've seen. Thai girls can give Western men so much grief (if you meet the wrong ones) that men may rightly ask how Thai men put up with them.
For a start, Thai men know exactly which girls will be a headache and which ones won't. They nab the good girls for themselves while the girls are still very young and then won't let them leave.
There is also a lot of fear and intimidation. If you have ever taught in Thailand you will know that Thai students are afraid of Thai teachers but have no fear of farang teachers.
It's the same with Thai girls and Thai men. The girls wouldn't play up with Thai men the same way some do with Western men, basically because of fear. We all tend to be more afraid of our own kind.
Western men don't generally knock girls around but I've spoken to several Thai girls who have taken beatings at the hands of Thai men. I've also seen the bruises.
Thai men also have a lot less to lose if a relationship goes wrong and tend to be more assertive. Western men who have bought properties in the name of their Thai wife have a lot to lose and aren't as assertive. The girls know this and many take advantage.
With any generalised question there is never one answer and there are always lots of exceptions.
Girls working in rice fields or doing menial jobs (maids, restaurant serving staff) probably only earn about Bt6,000 per month. Qualified teachers and nurses, etc, don't make much more - less than Bt10,000 a month but this can be supplemented by working extra hours or doing another job.
Office jobs in places like Bangkok and Phuket tend to pay better with salaries of around Bt18,000 to Bt20,000.
The income of prostitutes varies. Girls catering to the local market - sexually frustrated teenagers and low paid Thai workers, etc - don't earn much. On the other hand, better looking girls catering to foreigners and Hi-So Thais can demand Bt4,000 a time or more.
If you click on the following link there is a job advertisement for a prostitute with a guaranteed daily salary of Bt3,000 to Bt5,000. That's a good income in Thailand.
They're not. And neither are there far more females in Thailand than males.
These are two very common misconceptions among tourists visiting Thailand, and I used to think exactly the same until I started living in Thailand.
It's because tourists spend their time in tourist resorts and these places aren't representative of Thailand. They are entirely artificial.
Money is the most valuable item in the Thai value system. You will sometimes find with a girl working as a prostitute that it is her regular boyfriend who takes her to work.
I'm no legal expert but I don't think so, especially if the man returns to his home country. The many Thai men who run off when their girlfriends get pregnant certainly don't provide any form of childcare allowance. I am not aware of any Child Support Agency or equivalent in Thailand.
Thailand is so completely different to the West. There is no sense of responsibility or liability. The litigation that exists (and that has reached extreme levels) in other countries just doesn't exist in Thailand.
I kid you not. A gentleman from the United States living in Greenville, North Carolina really did plug this question into the Google search engine. I haven't a clue, but if I decide to sell my wife I'll let you know. I know the economy in the United States is suffering at the moment but I didn't realise it was quite that bad.
Really. I'm not making this stuff up. What do you think?
There are no age or height restrictions. Fill your boots.
Where did you meet her and what was her motivation for entering into a relationship with you? At a guess I would think she is from a poor background and only entered into a relationship with a farang to support her family.
That is an honourable thing for her to do and if she has to lie to you - a mere insignificant foreigner - in order to be successful it is of no consequence. In her mind, and in accordance with Thai society, she is making a lot of merit by supporting her family. So, she lied to a rich farang. What does that matter?
If you want a Thai girlfriend who doesn't lie, find one whose motivation for entering into the relationship isn't purely money.
This is yet another one of those questions that is impossible to answer for every girl in Thailand. Every case is different.
If a Thai girl has a foreign boyfriend then I assume she is single. Good Thai girls who are single will often live with their parents, or maybe with one or more female friends.
If she's not a good girl she might live with her Thai boyfriend, Thai husband or foreign boyfriend. What's your gut feeling?
If you met her in a bar and she does things that make you suspect her, and/or you are thinking about hiring a private detective to track her, just forget about her and find a girl you can trust. You'll save yourself a lot of problems in the future.
Be a good person in this life and hope that in the next one you come back as a good looking, white-skinned male born into a wealthy Thai-Chinese family.
Most Thais speak and read English, some a lot better than others. English ability and usage can tell you a lot about the girl.
For Thai girls who sell sex and make a living preying on naive foreigners, speaking English is a necessity because the vast majority of foreign tourists speak absolutely no Thai.
They can communicate well - in many cases better than Thai PhD students - because they talk with foreigners all the time. However, what they speak is 'Bargirl English'. It's not very pleasant to the ears and they use vocabulary that only bargirls use.
For example, a man who chases lots of girls would normally be described as 'jao choo' or called a 'girl tiger' (seua pooying). Bargirls would say, "He butterfly," which I have never heard outside of the bars.
It's unfortunate that the girls you should be avoiding are the ones that are normally the easiest to communicate with.
If a good Thai girl has spent time abroad she will normally speak very good English. However, if a Thai girl comes from a family that can afford to send her abroad she isn't going to be the kind of Thai girl who is interested in farangs.
Poor girls who haven't had much of an education and who haven't worked in bars may not know any English at all.
The Thai education system is poor and many students who have 'studied' English for 12 years or more finish their education unable to speak any English. My wife is a good example.
If you have lived in Thailand for a while and met different girls from different backgrounds, the way they speak English and what they say can tell you a lot.
They and their families need to eat.
They're all real of course, but I think I understand the question.
Here's what not to do. Don't get off the plane, check in to your hotel, and then go to find the nearest bar with bar girls. Give yourself plenty of time and stay away from the tourist resorts.
If you want to find a life partner, you aren't going to be very successful if you opt for a two week vacation in Pattaya.
Take a leave of absence from work and plan to spend several months in Thailand - maybe a year.
Enrol in a Thai language course and start to learn the language. Read lots about Thailand. Act naturally, be yourself, and don't act like a sex tourist. Realise that everything you do will be observed by someone.
Most importantly, don't look for girls. That reeks of desperation and will put girls off. Plenty of Thai girls will seek you out. If a girl is interested in you but you aren't interested in her, just be a friend.
Make it clear by your actions that you aren't interested in a relationship but be her friend. She will have lots of friends and you will meet then through her.
Since I've been married and out of the market I have met some great girls in the most unlikely places. Our daughter had to spend a lot of time at the hospital after being born and I highly recommend Thai nurses.
They can be difficult to meet because they're always working but once you meet one, you then meet others.
There can't be many places in the world where it is so easy to meet so many great girls. I will never understand why so many foreign men make an immediate beeline for the ones that cause the most problems.
Yes, really. Someone from Israel asked Google this question. This is another 'please don't get on the plane' candidate. You'll really be safer if you stay at home.
The vast majority, yes. However, I don't think there is another country in the world with as many transsexuals as Thailand. There are men walking around dressed as girls absolutely everywhere. There are also quite a few girls walking around who look like men. They are known as 'Toms' in Thailand, as in 'Tomboys'.
The men dressed as girls are known as ga-tur-ee in Thailand (often spelt 'katoey' in English). Many farangs just say 'ladyboy'.
Some are small-framed and just about pass themselves off as girls. Others are huge and don't fool anyone. They are known as ga-tur-ee kwai in Thai, which translates to 'buffalo ladyboys', but don't let them hear you say this or they will probably beat you up.
The only ladyboys I have seen who I think are girls are the ones on TV in the 'Miss Tiffany' contests. The ones I see in real life are obviously men and I would never be fooled.
You need to be a little careful, but my view is that if you find a ladyboy attractive it can't say much for your taste in women.
This isn't always easy. I didn't find out that my first Thai girlfriend had been married until 10 months after meeting her. A farang I met years ago told me he had been living with a Thai girl for a long time when one day her husband knocked on the door and asked for his wife back. He had always thought that she was single but obviously that wasn't the case.
Lots of poorer girls get into relationships in their teens. Later on they need money and many go to work in places with lots of farangs. The girls always maintain that they are single but many aren't.
Even if they want to leave their boyfriend, many Thai men won't accept this and hang on to the girls as if they own them. It can be a big problem.
This is one of the reasons why there are so many people (often expat farangs) acting as private detectives in Thailand. You can go down this route but it will be expensive and you could find out other ways.
Friends of the girl will often tell you things that the girl won't. My first girlfriend got a passport so that we could travel outside the country and her passport said 'Mrs'. However, checking documentation doesn't guarantee the truth.
My wife still uses the title naang saaw (Miss) even though she is married. She decided to do this and keep her maiden surname instead of going through the hassle of changing everything to my name.
With problems such as this you really need to listen to your gut feelings and act on them. If you are getting serious about a girl, you will be spending a lot of time with her. If you are spending a lot of time with her and she is already in a relationship it will be very difficult for her to carry on without making you suspicious.
If you are getting serious about her from a distance without spending time together, you need to think very carefully about what you are doing and be careful. Always take your time and never rush into anything with a Thai girl. The risks are enormous.
Instead of Singaporean, insert any country or any other adjective such as fat, ugly, old, etc. The answer will be yes. The only exception will probably be 'poor'.
The culture of looking after, and being looked after, is very strong in Thailand. The Thai phrase is doo lair and many relationships in Thailand are built on a system of patronage where there are mutual benefits for both clients and patrons.
Many poor Thais will actively seek out a patron in life who will take care of them. For many poor Thai girls, there is nothing more important.
Apart from spoiled rich girls in Bangkok, most Thai girls care little about a man's age, appearance, or where he comes from. The only matter of any importance is whether he will be prepared to take care of her. With most Isaan girls, this taking care of aspect will also be extended to their families.
Taking care, of course, means taking care financially. It thus follows that if you have the money and are prepared to take care of a poor girl and her family it doesn't matter where you come from, what you look like, or anything else.
Er, no, unless you are referring to prostitutes in which case it is simply a business transaction.
As a tourist to Thailand many years ago, I thought that many of them were good looking. Everything in life is relative and compared to the British girls I was used to, the slim and pretty Thai girls looked very attractive.
After I came to live in Thailand my standards gradually went up. Whenever I visit places now with lots of Thai prostitutes (BTW, everyone knows who they are and what do) I see very few that I would consider attractive.
Nothing worthwhile having in life comes easily, and the Thai girls that are easy to get don't rate very highly in my opinion.
But, as I said, it depends who you compare them with. If you've just arrived from a country where there are lots of fat, unattractive girls they probably will seem attractive. If you've been living in Thailand for a while and understand what a truly beautiful Thai girl is like, you probably won't find them attractive.
Business. She waits in the bar because that is where men will come to find prostitutes, but the bar owner needs to receive some money for that privilege.
If, when you say 'girls', you are referring to bargirls (prostitutes), and if you have a couple of thousand Baht in your pocket, yes. It's extremely easy.
This was an interesting question, and it obviously came from a farang girl. Why did your boyfriend go to Thailand without you? Did he tell you it was to play golf? Perhaps he wanted to learn more about Thai culture, or he wanted to 'find himself' by retreating to a forest monastery for a few weeks?
You know your boyfriend better than anyone else so you are in a better position to answer the question than anyone else.
However, if you are suspicious enough to be Googling this kind of question then he probably wasn't playing golf, learning Thai, or meditating.
This was an interesting question. There are the girls who think they are beautiful. They spend all their time running their fingers through their hair, beautifying themselves, and looking at their reflections in mirrors. Most girls who act like this aren't beautiful, they just think they are.
On the other hand, many Thai girls have a serious lack of self-confidence and quite often the genuinely pretty girls don't see any beauty in themselves. They just see lots of beauty in other people.
I've had quite a few problems with Thai girls who think they are beautiful. They think they are nature's gift to men and that the world should revolve around them. In my opinion, these girls are best avoided.
The best Thai girls are the ones who don't think they are beautiful. They are very often the most beautiful of all and they can be found everywhere. I've seen some ugly prostitutes, but I've also seen some beautiful girls working at 7-Eleven.
Not necessarily, and you won't need to know a Thai girl for very long before you get invited to meet the parents. This normally means a trip to rural Isaan. I've done it myself.
It could be a genuine gesture that she is serious about marriage. On the other hand, quite a few poor Thai girls and their families only have one thing in mind, and that is to get as much money as they can out of farang men.
The 'con' in con-artist is short for confidence. The most effective way to cheat people is to get their confidence first.
Taking a farang man back to meet the parents is a very effective way of gaining the man's confidence.
Something I've heard from other men is that the purpose of the trip home to meet the parents is for the parents to give the man their list of demands, should he wish to marry the girl.
This happened to one man who wrote to me. He couldn't afford what the parents were demanding and was as good as thrown out of the house.
Thai girls are experts at gaining your confidence and getting money out of you. Don't think you can outdo them. I've been contacted by highly intelligent doctors who have been scammed by poor, uneducated, rural Thai girls.
Take things slowly and don't take anything at face value. Don't be overly cynical but remain wary and be on your guard. These girls are good at what they do. Very good.
Not all do, but it may seem like this to many foreign men for good reasons. Most girls who live far from their families are from Isaan, and the girls that most foreign men get involved with also come from Isaan.
The Isaan region is the poorest in Thailand but it contains about one-third of the entire population.
The soil in Isaan isn't good for agriculture and there are no beautiful seas, beaches or islands to attract tourists as there are in the south. The region is landlocked.
There is little state welfare in Thailand and people can't survive without earning money. Many Isaan natives have been forced to move to other parts of Thailand to find work.
Before I was married I used to go for lots of massages. Most of the massage girls were from Isaan. Most of the bargirls in the tourist resorts who make themselves available to foreign men are from Isaan. Many construction workers and low-paid factory workers are from Isaan. Many Bangkok taxi drivers are from Isaan.
People from Isaan aren't afraid of hard work and don't grumble. My first Thai girlfriend worked in a salon and said the people from Isaan doing foot massage were very good workers. In contrast, she said that southern Thais were often lazy or thought that certain work was above them.
When I was having lots of massages I made a point of speaking with the girls to find out about their lives. Every one I spoke to seemed to have the same story.
The girl had had a Thai boyfriend when she was in her teens and then got pregnant. Her boyfriend run off as soon as he heard the good news. With a baby to feed and no income, she was forced to go to a tourist area at the other end of the country to earn money.
You find with most of these girls that they have children who are being looked after by their parents or siblings back home. The girls work and send money home to support their families.
It's a difficult life. No woman wants to be separated from her children but many poor Thai girls have no choice. They keep in touch using their mobile phones and their phones also have photos of their children.
Thai bar girls and massage girls don't usually advertise the fact that they have children at home, but if you ask whether they have children you will often be told yes.
If you speak to Thai girls living far from home you will normally find they are from Isaan. It is the opposite for many southern Thai girls. They like to stay close to their families and because the economy is better in the south they have more choice about where they live.
I would think that Orchard Towers or Geylang are your best bets. Remember not to be completely honest when you fill out the bit about occupation on her immigration form. The staff at Singapore immigration aren't always the most understanding of people.
It never ceases to amaze me how little money Thais can live on. There are many Thais who would regard Bt10,000 a month as a lot of money. Rice workers might earn Bt100 a day, yet they can live on such paltry amounts. I'm not saying they can live luxuriously, but they can survive.
The amount needed to live is tiny. However, there is a big difference between how much is needed to live and how much is needed to live how she would like to live.
At birth, no, more males are born in Thailand than females. After the age of 15, yes there are more females than males, but not that many more. Thai men are highly adept at killing themselves and other people in road accidents and this skill affects the gender balance of the population. See: A lot more females than males?
Book yourself a vacation to Pattaya.
This question must have come from the UK. How I miss British colloquialisms. According to the Urban Dictionary, the definition of slag is: "An individual who cares not for relationships beyond the realm of the sexual, these people sleep with many partners not caring about anything save for the moment of climax."
In that case, Thai girls are not slags. The vast majority are highly conservative and do not enter into intimate relationships lightly. The prostitutes (of which there are many in the country) have sex for money, not for sexual pleasure. Neither of these cases fit the dictionary definition of 'slag'.
Not just the bar girls. All Thai girls seem to have this ability. It's one of the things that makes them so dangerous. Even the poorest, lowest educated rural rice farm girls can mess with the heads of seemingly wealthy, intelligent and streetwise foreign men.
Should you stay away from fast cars? If you're careful and know what you're doing they can be a lot of fun. If you don't know what you're doing and you're not careful they can be very dangerous.
It's the same with Thai girls.
The problem is that all men believe they are the greatest drivers in the world and all foreign men who come to Thailand believe they can handle the girls.
The male ego is probably more dangerous to foreign men in Thailand than the girls themselves.
I have no statistics to answer this highly intelligent, sensitive and considered question, but if I had to guess I would hazard a guess that Pattaya is probably the most likely location.
It depends on the type of girl. With the girls worth knowing all you need to do is behave like a mature adult, and not like the average Thai male.
To attract the girls who you should really be avoiding, simply take on the appearance of a naive farang who has just arrived in the country and grin a lot. Wai at everyone, including the bar girls. Conspicuous displays of wealth and flashing around large amounts of cash will do the trick. Aftershave resembling the smell of freshly printed bank notes will also help.
A farang I know living in Thailand estimates that Thai society is about 50 years behind the Western world. How were Western women treated 50 years ago? There has been no big women's movement, and political correctness never made it to Thailand.
Thailand is still very much a man's world and men hold all the important positions in business and government. Please don't write to tell me that Thailand has a female prime minister. If you don't understand why Thailand has a female prime minister and you don't know who really runs the country, you don't understand Thailand.
Despite all this, the country is light years ahead of places such as India and China, where rape and female infanticide are major problems. Rape is a problem in Thailand as well, but not to the same extent as India.
It also seems to depend on social class. Educated Thai women, especially doctors and dentists, get a lot of respect. Unfortunately, the low class women don't get quite the same respect from their low class partners.
From an early age it is obvious in Thailand that males are given special privileges. The reasons are cultural and related to the Thai belief system. Making merit is of the utmost importance to Thais and the way Thais do this is through monks, who of course are male. Thus males have a very important place in Thai society.
Thai women are determined and headstrong. Some do get knocked around by their Thai boyfriends and husbands, but generally they won't accept being abused or treated badly.
Thailand is a man's world, but the women do an awful lot of hard work. The men are fully aware of this and do give women respect, otherwise they know that a lot of things wouldn't get done. I have also heard that because Thai men are so irresponsible with money, many Thai women manage the household finances.
Thai women themselves regard men who they don't know as being very dangerous, and for good reason. There are a lot of rogue males in the country and women travelling around on their own should be very careful. Thai males may respect women they know personally, but there are those who think nothing of abusing girls they don't know.
If you are a foreign man and get involved with a Thai girl, don't expect a smiling, subservient, demure little creature who will attend to all of your needs and allow you to do whatever you want.
They expect to be treated in the same way as you would treat a Western woman.
Contrary to the opinion of some people, about half the population of Thailand is female. That is currently around 35 million. Some of these females will be old ladies and some will be young children, but yes, that leaves quite a few girls.
It should also be noted that there is a great deal of gender confusion in Thailand with quite a few boys wanting to be girls and vice-versa.
You don't. Nothing is free in Thailand, especially sex. For quite a few Thai girls, selling sex is a career and they're certainly not going to have sex for free. Would you do your job without receiving a salary? For the majority of girls who don't sell their bodies, sex isn't simply given away even if they enjoy it. Attitudes are very different compared to Western countries and sex isn't a sport engaged in purely for the enjoyment derived from it. Sex is a valuable commodity.
The majority of Thai girls who aren't prostitutes will only have sex with someone who they expect to marry. If you start having 'free' sex with a Thai girl who isn't a prostitute, it's about the same as putting an engagement ring on her finger. If you aren't serious about her and just decide to call off the relationship when you get bored, expect some fireworks. That sex wasn't free. She had sex with you because she expected a lot more and your actions leading up to the sex must have made her think that you were committed.
I met a Thai girl years ago who was absolutely heartbroken and couldn't stop crying for weeks. Eddie, a seedy Danish guy she had met, had developed a strategy for having free sex in Thailand. He met decent Thai girls and made out he loved and wanted to marry them. He promised them the world.
The girls, of whom she was one, were taken in with his lies and willingly slept with him. He then simply deserted them. He supposedly loved her, but when he visited Thailand he went to Isaan instead of Songkhla where she lived. Why did he do this if he loved her so much? She went to Isaan to find out what he was up to and found him with another girl.
Apparently, he had girls all over the country who he had promised to marry and was having lots of free sex. What a scumbag.
Another possible way is by cheating the working girls. There is an element of trust involved when doing business with Thai prostitutes and many don't demand money up front. I've read stories a few times about foreign men in Pattaya and Patong who have sex with prostitutes and then disappear without paying.
This is probably as low as it gets. Be aware that more CCTV cameras are appearing in Thailand all the time and any farang who attempts this dirty trick will hopefully be caught and punished appropriately. If you can't afford to pay with the prostitutes, don't play, and don't deceive the good girls, as Eddie the Dane did. There are lots of very decent girls in Thailand and they deserve a lot better than this. They get enough trouble from Thai men, without having problems with farangs too.
Most Thai girls have preferences and dislikes for the opposite sex in the same way that we all have preferences and dislikes for the opposite sex (the same sex in the case of gay people). However, with respectable Thai girls there isn't usually the same obsession with youth and good looks as there is with Western girls. If you're a genuinely good man and show that you will take care of the girl you stand a good chance regardless of your age or looks (provided, of course, that she doesn't already have a Thai boyfriend). It doesn't matter if you are old, ugly or fat.
Finding someone who will take care of them (doo lair in Thai) is extremely important to most Thai girls and with many girls this quality in a man outweighs youth and age. The spoilt, rich Asian princess types from rich families in Bangkok may think differently, but these girls are not usually the ones that get involved with farangs.
A few years ago, a Thai female friend of mine asked me to take some photos at her sister's wedding. She is quite attractive, as is her sister. I was gobsmacked when I saw the bridegroom. He looked like a hippo. No doubt, she was marrying him because he was a good man. It certainly wasn't for his looks.
When farang tourists refer to 'Thai girls' it is often the case that what they are really referring to is 'Thai prostitutes'. With the working girls the only thing that matters to them is that you have some money in your pocket. If you have a few thousand Baht and want to mess around with Thai prostitutes it doesn't matter if you look like the Elephant Man.
With many of these Google searches I have to try to interpret what the asker of the question actually means. What does he (I assume it was a man who asked) mean by normal? If his definition of normal is not working as a pole dancer in a Pattaya Go-Go bar, not sleeping with foreign tourists, and not trying to extort as much money out of foreign males as possible, then the answer is yes, there are lots of normal girls in Thailand.
When you visit places such as Pattaya, Patong or certain areas of Bangkok, the Thai girls working as prostitutes that you will encounter are not exactly representative (or normal) of Thai girls. I assume this is what he meant. To meet 'normal' girls, just stay away from those places and don't act like a tourist.
I've always found large butterfly nets to be quite effective.
There are many reasons why farang men have so many problems with Thai girls, but if I had to give just one this would be it. Instead of taking their time learning about the country, the people, the culture and the language, the lazy idiots think they know it all already and take the shortest route to meeting Thai girls. This route will inevitably lead to lots of problems and ultimately to failure.
The answer, by the way, is just to go to a farang tourist resort, such as Patong or Pattaya, to sit on a bar stool with a cold Chang in your hand and to wait a few minutes.

Once you enter a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship the girl will expect you to provide for her basic needs. Initially, this will seem quite reasonable because she is most likely from a poor background and the cost of living in Thailand is cheap. It doesn't cost a lot each month to rent a room, buy Thai food from the market, give the girl some spending money, buy her a motorbike, etc.
The problem, especially if she is from Isaan, is that she won't simply expect you to provide for her basic needs alone. It was made very clear to me some years ago by an Isaan girl that if you get involved with an Isaan girl you are expected to love her family like you love her, and you are expected to support the entire extended family.
Even if you give the girl a very generous allowance, which is ample for her needs, the requests for more money will keep coming in to support other members of her family. The girls may seem shy and retiring at first, but after they achieve girlfriend status they aren't at all shy about asking for money and will do it quite forcefully. The implication will be that if you don't provide more money the relationship will end.
In the days before I had any involvement with Thai women I couldn't understand why they had so much power over foreign men. After all, the men had all the money so they should also have had all the power. Despite this, I saw Thai girls walking all over foreign men. The girls are very good at drawing foreign men in and then exercising power over them.
If you go further with the relationship and marry the girl it gets even worse. Thai laws are constructed in such a way that foreigners have absolutely no rights in Thailand. The girl will want a house, but foreigners cannot own land in Thailand. Foreign men, like myself, transfer lots of money into Thailand to buy property (in my case, two cars as well) and nothing is in the man's name.
The girl can then issue lots of ultimatums knowing that if the man refuses and she decides to end the relationship he will lose everything. This gives Thai girls married to foreigners living in Thailand lots of power. If children are involved, some girls will think nothing of using the children in a game of emotional blackmail. The girls may not be very well educated, but they are very clever in other ways and some are utterly mercenary.
This is why it is so important not to rush into relationships with Thai girls, but to take your time to ensure that you get involved with a good one. If the relationship goes wrong, it can go very wrong. Some foreign men have sold everything in their home countries to start a new life in Thailand with a Thai girl and have ended up losing everything.
I know how desperately difficult this advice can be to follow. Many Western men, especially those over a certain age, are good men but find it impossible to meet women they are attracted to in their own countries.
When they visit Thailand and find young, attractive girls who seem desperate to have a meaningful relationship with them it can mess with their heads very easily. Their feelings of emptiness and despair vanish and Thailand becomes an all consuming obsession. They can't wait to return and will do anything to be with the girl.
The girls are very perceptive and can sense loneliness and insecurity very easily. It makes for a dangerous liaison. Your dream girl can be found in Thailand if you take the right approach. If you take the wrong approach it can end up being the biggest nightmare of your life.
I would suspect very few. They're not stupid and they know what they are doing. If they know that they aren't going to see a client again they don't want to be saddled with a baby to take care of and feed without any financial assistance from the child's father. However, if they get involved with a man who they believe is generous and will take care of them and a family, getting pregnant deliberately is a favourite ploy in order to hang on to the man. It happened to me.
I've been married since 2010 and I'm really out of touch with this aspect of Thailand. What I can say is that free market capitalism works very well in Thailand. Good looking girls will command a higher price and prices will be higher in those areas where there is a lot of demand, for example, the well known tourist resorts of Thailand.
In May 2015 I did a little research on this subject where I live in Hat Yai. The prostitutes in Hat Yai cater mainly to the Malaysian and Singaporean tourist trade and the girls normally stay with their clients from the time the initial transaction takes place until the following morning. The girls I saw were quite ordinary looking and wanted between Bt2,000 and Bt2,500 for an overnight encounter. If you multiply that amount by seven it will give you a rough idea. If you want the best looking prostitute in Patong during the high season I suspect that it will cost you significantly more.
Think about the country where you live. Is every girl exactly the same? Of course not. That is why it is dumb to ask about 'Thai girls' when there are 35 million, or so, females in Thailand. They are all very different.
I have met many wonderfully kind and considerate Thai girls. I've also encountered some of the most mercenary females it is possible to meet. The kind of girls you meet mainly depends on how and where you meet them. If your modus operandi of meeting Thai girls is to head straight to the beer bars of Pattaya, Patong, Nana Plaza or Soi Cowboy, etc, you stand a much greater chance of meeting the latter rather than the former.
This is the main source of income for many, especially in the tourist resorts.
No. If she's a prostitute, you are not offering her money, you are simply paying for a business transaction. If she's not a prostitute, how will she feel if you offer her money for sex? How would you feel if a strange man offered a female member of your family (who I assume isn't a prostitute) money for sex? You would feel extremely insulted. Why should it be any different for a Thai girl who isn't a prostitute if you offer her money for sex?
For opportunity and a better quality of life. You really have to live in Thailand to realise how little opportunity there is in life for the majority of Thais. It's an extremely inequitable country in which a tiny minority get everything and the vast majority get nothing. The fate of most Thais is determined at the time of their birth and those from poor backgrounds have almost no hope for a decent life, even if they are hardworking and bright.
For many, their only way out of the poverty trap is to marry a foreigner and/or go to live abroad. I know a couple of Thai girls from poor backgrounds who managed to move to Europe and they are now doing very well. Had they stayed in Thailand, they would still be doing undesirable jobs and earning very little money.
With bar girls the normal modus operandi is to meet clients in the evening, spend the night with them and return back to base the following day. The girls are virtually nocturnal and sleep most of the day.
There may be slow times when they don't get taken out of the bar and at times the same client will retain the girl for several days, but theoretically it would be possible for them to have a different client every day of the month.
With the girls who work in soapy massage establishments they may only devote two hours or less to each client, and they work long shifts. I have never done any in-depth research, but theoretically I guess they could service 150 or more clients per month.
Prostitution in Thailand pays quite well compared to other jobs, especially when the clients are 'rich' foreigners. Salaries in Thailand are a complete joke. A girl working as a maid might earn Bt6,000 per month and a respectable job in an office might only pay Bt10,000.
You can start to understand why the profession is so attractive to poor girls who have large, poor families to support.
An Englishman started writing to me about problems with his Thai girlfriend. At first I took the correspondence seriously and tried to help him. After exchanging several e-mails I happened to ask about their ages. He was in his 70's and she was 19. He immediately lost all credibility and I gave up with him.
One of the great things about Thailand for Western men is that it is possible to find girls who are a lot younger than they are (my wife is about 21 years younger than me), but you have to keep it real. If you have one foot in the grave already, does it make any sense trying to find a girlfriend who is barely out of nappies?
I came to Thailand to live when I was 42 and apart from having absolutely nothing in common with girls in their teens and early 20's, many of them irritated me because they were so immature. I just found their childish personalities annoying.
Most Thai girls in their 30's keep their shapes and looks very well, and by this age they have gone past the 'little girl' stage. Also, there are less problems concerning children. They already have children from a previous relationship or they have decided that they don't want any.
The answer to the question is an emphatic yes and if you are in your 60's or 70's she is still going to be a lot younger than you are.
With a lot of these questions I don't really know what the person is trying to ask and therefore I have to guess.
The frequency at which you, personally, can ejaculate depends on many things and a lot of physical and emotional factors are involved. If you are 75, have erectile dysfunction, poor sexual health and can normally only manage it about once a month, nothing is going to change in Thailand. A Thai girl won't suddenly enhance your sexual performance. It will still be once a month.
However, this question may have an entirely different meaning. It may have something to do with the number of times you are allowed to ejaculate when hiring a Thai prostitute for short-time sex.
With some girls the customer's first ejaculation signals the end of the session and therefore the answer is once. On the other hand the session could be for a fixed time, for example, an hour or 40 minutes. If you pay for an hour and shoot your bolt after two minutes, the girl may be willing to repeat the performance. It is really up to her.
If you pay for an hour, but know that your first performance will only take two minutes, you may want to discuss this issue with the girl in advance.
Isn't It Time You Visited Thailand?
Thailand is an incredibly photogenic country, both for its landscapes and its people. Regardless of whether you enjoy large Asian cities, beaches and islands or rice fields and mountains, Thailand has something for you and it is a dream destination for photographers.
However, the country is changing and not necessarily for the better. Every year sees an increase in the number of tourists and this growth has been fueled by economic development in China in recent years.
Huge development has taken place to create the infrastructure to cater for mass tourism and, sadly, many natural areas of Thailand have been lost forever.
Thailand now is very different to how it was in 2003 when I started living in the country, and it is a world apart from the Thailand I first visited in 1987.
Despite this, there are still many interesting and unspoilt areas that haven't been ruined by commercialism and mass tourism. But this won't last forever. Visit soon before it's too late.
One of the great things about visiting Thailand is that hotels are plentiful and a lot cheaper than in most other countries. I always use Agoda to book hotels in Thailand. The company was established in Thailand and has great local knowledge, as well as a huge inventory of hotels.
The Agoda website is easy to navigate, the booking process efficient, and with Agoda's 'Best Price Guarantee' you can be assured of getting the best possible deal.
