What it costs to hire Thai bar girls for sex in Pattaya depends on what else you might have to pay along the way, like lady-drinks and bar fines. There are also different prices for long-time and short-time sex with bar girls. It also depends on how good-looking the girl is, the price you can negotiate with her, and the type of bar or nightlife venue in Pattaya you pick up—hire a girl from.
This article includes everything you need to know about hiring Thai bar girls for sex in Pattaya, what it costs, how to pick up bar girls in Pattaya, and the price you might pay for having sex with Thai bar girls in Thailand.
In Pattaya, girls at short-time bars on Soi 6 or freelance girls online might cost around 1,500. On the other hand, after buying lady-drinks and paying the bar fine, the hottest girls in Pattaya—gogo dancers and coyote girls at gogo bars on Walking Street could cost several thousand baht.
The most crucial thing to remember is that bar fines are non-negotiable and do not include the girl’s price. Bar-fine prices in Pattaya cost from around 500 baht at beer bars and up to 2000 baht or more at gogo bars. Whatever amount you pay a girl she keeps for herself, the price is negotiable, and whatever you and she agreed. Along the way, you will most likely buy a few “lady drinks,” which cost between 80 and 200 baht.
What guys love about Thai bar girls and freelancers in Pattaya is—they are great fun. If you asked a guy who knows “what is being with a Thai bargirl like, compared to a prostitute back home?” in Europe, for example. He would likely say picking up Thai bar girls is more like picking up a casual date, that being with Thai bar girls is more like a girlfriend experience. Whereas, with a prostitute back home, it’s just cold business-like sex.
What do Thai bar girls do, and where to find bar girls and freelancers in Pattaya?
Bar girls are girls who work in bars and other adult nightlife venues in Thailand—and are also prostitutes. A bar girl’s job is mainly to attract male customers, entertain them, and encourage them to spend money in the bar. If she wishes, she may leave with a customer who “bar-fines” her. At some bars, girls offer “short-time sex activities” and even fantasy role-play services on the premises.
In Pattaya, bar girls work at beer bars, short-time bars, as hostesses at gentleman’s clubs and fetish bars, and gogo dancers and coyote girls at gogo clubs. Freelance girls mainly hang out in discos and nightclubs on Walking Street by night, online 24/7, and on Pattaya Beach Road (the coconut bar) during the afternoon and early evening.
How to pick up Thai bar girls for sex in Pattaya guide
At most bars and adult nightlife venues in Pattaya—the order of play will go something like:
1) You enter a bar, take a seat, order a drink.
2) A girl might come along, introduce herself, and ask if she can sit down, or the Mamasan might ask if you would like a lady to keep you company.
What is a Mamasan in Thailand?
The Mamasan manages the girls in bars, especially go-go bars and larger bar complexes. The Mamasan is looked upon as a matriarchal figure in many bars—offering guidance and support and often liaises between customers and girls.
3) Thai bar girls usually open the conversation with basic questions such as: what’s your name, where you come from. After the ice is broken and the conversation starts to flow—she will ask if you would like to buy her a drink—in case you never offered already.
Bar games (see photo below) and pool are popular at bars in Pattaya, and a fun way for girls to keep customers entertained—and spending money in the bar.
4) She’s adorable, you like her, she seems to like you too. You ask if you can “bar-fine” her so she can join you for the night, she says yes, you negotiate a fee for her time.
5) You pay the bar-fine, pay your bill, and leave. How you entertain yourself for the rest of the day or night is up to you and her.
What are lady-drinks in Thailand?
Any drink you buy for Thai bar girls employed at bars and other nightlife venues is called a lady-drink. Girls earn commission on lady-drinks bought for them by customers. At some nightlife venues, they might even be expected to reach a monthly sales quota.
Price of Lady Drinks in Pattaya
Prices for lady-drinks are between 80 and 150 baht at beer bars and 150 to 200 baht at gogo bars.
TIP: If you don’t want a bar girl sat with you, just tell her you are not interested. Don’t feel obliged to accept her invitation, especially if you just called in for a look-see.
Bar Fine Prices in Pattaya
What is a bar-fine in Thailand?
Before you can take a Thai bar girl or hostess from a bar, you must pay a bar-fine. The bar-fine is paid as compensation for the temporary loss of one of the bar staff.
So if you take a girl from a bar for a “long-time,” you pay the bar-fine for every day that she stays in your company and does not return to work in the bar.
Bar-fines at beer bar complexes and shop-house style bars are generally around 500 to 600 baht. Bar fines at go-go clubs in Pattaya vary from club to club. You would be lucky to find one with a bar-fine of less than 1000 baht, and 1,500 to 2000 baht is typical for most, but some reduce the rate after midnight.
Pattaya Bar Girl Long Time Prices
What is “long-time” with bar girls in Thailand?
When you hire a bar girl for a “long-time” it typically means she will stay with you throughout the day and night, either until early morning or when she’s due to start her next shift at the bar.
Of course, her definition of “long time” might be different from yours. Example: you take a girl from a bar at mid-day. By early evening she declares “long time already” and heads back to the bar and the prospect of another customer. So it’s best to be clear from the outset exactly what you expect.
Girls from beer bars are likely to ask for a minimum of 2000 baht for long-time. Go-go dancers might ask for 3000 to 5000 baht. There is no set price for bar girls in Pattaya, whether from a beer bar, a go-go club, or a gentleman’s club. It all depends on what you both think she’s worth, how much she thinks she can get out of you, and your negotiating skills.
Pattaya Bar Girl Short Time Prices
What is a “short time” sex with bar girls in Thailand?
If you take a girl for a “short-time,” you would normally take her to a room on the bar premises and enjoy some “short-time sex” activities for an hour or two.
Prices for short-time sex in Pattaya vary from bar to bar. On Soi 6—Pattaya’s most famous short-time bar street—a “short-time” might cost 1,500 to 2000 baht, including the bar fine and room rental. A Short-time at go-go bars could be double the price.
Negotiating the Price for Sex with Bar Girls in Pattaya
Some bar girls are upfront; they will immediately state their opening price. Others hedge their bets by replying “up to you.” If you offer an unsatisfactory price, she will most likely reply with a look of disinterest or ask you to try again.
Paying For a Girlfriend Experience in Pattaya
A girlfriend experience with a bar girl in Pattaya often happens by chance—when a guy hits it off with a girl, so he asks her to stick around for a few days. Some guys just prefer having a girlfriend to hang out with or hire a bar girl as a girlfriend-cum-travel companion and guide. Others pay for so-called “sex holidays” in Pattaya, including a room and a “hostess” 24/7.
Hiring a girl for a girlfriend experience for a day, 2 days, a week, or a month is just the same as taking a girl for a “long time,” you have to pay her, and the bar fine, every day.
Price of Freelance Girls in Pattaya
The price of a freelance girl in Pattaya should be comparable to the amount you would pay a bar girl, minus the bar fine and lady-drinks. There’s a lot of girls working freelance in Pattaya, either part-time or full-time. Not only bar girls or ex bar girls but girls with ordinary jobs in stores, hotels, etc.
Freelance girls hang out online and in popular nightclubs and discos such as Insomnia and Marine Disco on Walking Street.
Pattaya Bar Girls and Freelancers Online
There’s a considerable number of Pattaya bar girls and freelancers using Thai dating sites. So much so that if you were a guy using a popular Thai dating site to meet girls who are NOT bar girls or freelancers in Pattaya, you would likely meet as many who are. Online, for many guys, is a convenient way to hook up with freelance girls cheaply in Pattaya.
Never Pay Bar Girls in Advance
Some bar girls will ask for money upfront. They may offer you a convincing reason to hand over your money, such as they need to pay back a loan to a friend, or whatever. If you pay her, well, she’s got your money now, and that’s all she’s in it for. There’s a good chance she will speed things along and leave in a hurry.
The Price You Might Pay For Having Sex With Bar Girls in Thailand
The price of unprotected sex (sex without a condom) with Thai bar girls:
It’s true; some bars in Pattaya (probably a tiny minority) insist that girls have periodic STD checks. Even so—even if every bar insisted that every girl had regular checks—a girl could have slept with dozens of customers since her last examination. When you consider some bar girls have sex with multiple customers daily, who in turn had sex with numerous bar girls, the risks of contracting an STD—or worse—must be much higher than average.
There are numerous clinics in Pattaya where you can get a diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases comparatively cheap, but of course—not all sexually transmitted diseases/infections are treatable.
Paying for sex with Thai girls who aren’t girls:
As they say in Thailand, “same same, but different.” The reality is—some bar girls and freelance girls in Thailand are ladyboys (kathoeys). It’s one of the biggest Pattaya nightlife pitfalls for a heterosexual man in Pattaya. He picks up a bar girl from a bar or meets some girl at a disco or nightclub. Sooner or later, to his embarrassment, he discovers his girl is actually a ladyboy.
If your girl happens to be a ladyboy—politely tell her you didn’t know she was a ladyboy, and your preference is strictly for girls. There are lots of ladyboy photos and articles, including “how to spot a ladyboy,” right here on the blog.
Paying to take a girl to your hotel in Pattaya:
You’ve had a successful but expensive night out in Pattaya. You bought lady-drinks for several girls, found a gorgeous girl and bar-fined her, took her to a nightclub, and stopped off for food on the way back to the hotel. You’ll pay her tomorrow before she leaves, then there’s nothing more to pay, right? Not necessarily, unless your hotel is “guest friendly,” you will be charged a “joiner fee,” which could be as much as 1,500 or more every time you take a girl back to your room. It’s an unnecessary expense that is easily avoided by booking one of many guest friendly hotels in Pattaya.
Sponsoring Thai bar girls — The Thai bargirl scam:
It’s not a question of “should you fall in love with a Thai bar girl,” sometimes, usually after a guy has a prolonged “girlfriend experience” with a bar girl, it just can’t be helped.
She feels the same—she says. The guy supports her, so she doesn’t have to work in the bar while he’s away. She might be genuine—or the guy might be one of many “sponsors” sending her money every month while she continues to work in the bar.
