Worse than the ongoing price rises is the fact that the best looking
girls (who seem to be rarer and rarer on the Pattaya sex scene with
every passing year) are increasingly refusing to go on ‘long-time’
excursions with their customers.
They prefer the ‘short-time’ model that
most of the rest of the world employs as regards prostitution i.e. you
pay for your pleasure and part company (and pay up) as soon as you have
performed a single act – this is not the girlfriend experience (GFE)
that in previous years set Pattaya apart as a real sex mongers paradise.

The reason for the ongoing shift from long-time to short-time is
obvious; the best looking girls can easily get numerous customers in a
single night and make a lot more cash in the process than sticking with
Now, with regard to finding a long-time girl, there may be some difference between
different customers. I’m starting to be a known face around town and the
girls know that they aren’t going to be snagging me as some sort of
boyfriend that can be called upon to provide large sums of cash to solve
whatever the family crisis of the day is.
For anyone new to the Pattaya
sex scene that might not be the case, and the coveted long-time GFE
might be easier to come across. Generally speaking though, there seems
to be some consensus that it is slowly disappearing. I hear that in
Bangkok this process is much more advanced and that the GFE is all but
The bad news doesn’t end here. Since the girls (at least with us
regular customers) are less interested in bagging a boyfriend, they are
also less interested in providing a quality service. I’ve actually
noticed some really bad attitudes amongst some of the girls and I’m not
the only one.
Meeting the sexiest Thai ladies for fun times is getting easier and easier to do via the online dating sites. A lot of girls like the extra discretion that is offered on:

They are happy enough to accompany me, but gone are the ‘I
take care you’ softly spoken caring ladies of previous years. Now it’s
much more business like... not like it is in Europe, but also not like it
used to be in the Pattaya sex industry of years past.
girls that had agreed at the bar to stay with me long-time, and then
leave after a short-time engagement. I’ve had girls tell me that, whilst
they will go with me long-time, I must first spend half the night in
their bar racking up an expensive bar bill. I’ve even had girls that I
regarded as friends i.e. girls that I’ve never taken out of the bar but
for whom I have bought many drinks, left many tips and so on, give me
the cold shoulder and silent treatment for no reason at all.
sort of thing is not confined to Pattaya, I’m reliably informed that it
is even worse in other tourist areas. The entire Thai sex industry
just doesn’t feel like the same fun-packed experience that it used to
be, it’s almost enough to make an old monger such as myself turn to
regular online girls and their slower paced, traditional Thai attitudes towards intimacy and sex.
do accept that this might not be the way that other people feel about
it. I’d imagine that younger, first-time visitors will still have an
absolutely fantastic time, but I suspect that once they see past the
glitter they too will start to enjoy it less.

Any sensible person (which
I’m not) would relatively quickly start to see only the façade and none
of the fantasy. At one time I only saw the fantasy, now it feels as
though I’ve glimpsed behind the curtain and seen the magic
for what it is.
