Thai ladyboys are the ‘third sex’ and a big hit with many visiting foreign men in Pattaya. There are literally hundreds of them here, and they can be found all over the resort: in bars, on the street and working in respectable jobs. Being the destination that it is, the notion of picking up Thai ladyboys in Pattaya is hardly news and most people won’t even taken a second look when you stroll down the street with that good looking bloke on your arm.
Pattaya ladyboys appeal most to those who’ve done it all and fancy trying something completely different; a bit of kinky sex. The thing is, many of the ladyboys in Pattaya are stunning and some even look better than the girls do. They sell their bodies, just as the girls do, too, and there are many all-ladyboy bars in town to give it a go.
Some ladyboys aren’t even gay; rather, taking advantage of their good looks and making a buck. Also, it’s a bit of a misconception that they are in it to make money for their operation – to have the penis removed.
While some of them are poor souls trapped in the wrong body and go on to have expensive, full-on sex realignment surgery, the vast majority prefer to keep their man fat so they can earn more money in the sex trade and also enjoy having sex with men.
The good thing for Thai ladyboys in Pattaya is that they have the luxury of living in a country where they are not persecuted for being who they want to be. They are accepted as a part of society and you will even see ladyboys working everyday jobs in the city – hotel receptions, McDonalds, offices, etc. Just remember that they’re not all on the game, though many are.
How to spot a ladyboy?
Some are quite convincing, others are really obvious. They might have the body down pat and look very feminine, but the overriding, telltale sign is that they will often try just that little bit too hard to be a woman. Expats can tell them off straight away – those narrow hips, veiny arms, big hands, and dodgy voice. The lack of tits is not always a give away because many have had breast implants and can also have their adam’s apple worked on.
How does it work and where to find ladyboys?
Ladyboys hang in all the main bar areas; Walking Street, Soi Post Office, Soi 6, etc. Many of the beer bars will have at least one ladyboy working there and there are also specific ladyboy bars, such as Hi Boss Pub on Soi 6. Obsessions in the Penthouse Hotel of Pattayaland 2 is also a good option. In addition, Thai ladyboys Pattaya also frequent the promenade along beach road as freelancers, along with the girls, although these are best avoided.
Unfortunately, some ladyboys have given them all a bad name; those that pickpocket, drug and rob visitors. This type are typically freelancing ladyboys that may look nice but often work in groups to steal from tourists. It may be cheaper, but they are just best avoided. Ladyboys can also be seen trawling the discos after hours, such as Marina.
For sex with ladyboys, it works like this. Do the same as you would with the bar girls, but for the sake of newbies to Thailand, simply head to one of the ladyboy bars, sit down and order a beer. You won’t have to do anything as one will sit next to you and start talking, guaranteed.
You then buy them a drink (bit more expensive) and discuss how much it would be for a blowjob and a shag, top or bottom. Simple as that.
Some places have short-time rooms onsite, such as Hi Boss, which is the best bet if you feel anxious about walking down the street and into your hotel with Thai ladyboys Pattaya. Short time is about 1,000-1,500 baht for an hour or two, while all night is generally 1,500 baht and up. Bar fines are between 300-500 baht. This money goes to the bar. If you take one back to your hotel, be sure to have them leave their ID card info with reception.
There are various sexually-transmitted diseases in Pattaya and HIV is still a genuine threat. Although safe sex is practiced by most girls and guys, some do not so always carry, and use, condoms. There are many smaller complaints too, like herpes, which can be uncomfortable and may end up spoiling your time here. Always use precautions and be vigilant when going down. Pattaya has English-speaking doctors, such as Dr Belen (off Second Road) near soi 6, while the pharmacists are very useful (they’ve seen it all before). More on Health in Pattaya.
