The soapy ‘erotic massage’ is 90 minutes of real life sexual fantasy, probably the most blissful 90 minutes you will have in Pattaya. The most popular soapy massage parlors in Pattaya have upto 50 girls to choose from, but I’m told a soapy is best enjoyed with 2 girls. On entering a soapy massage parlor you’ll notice the girls sat behind large windows, commonly known as “fishbowls”, some will try to catch your eye, others will read, some might even be playing games on their ipad. Each girl wears a number, when you’re happy to choose simply tell the mama-san which number you would like, best not to let the mama-san recommend a girl for you as she will recommend one who hasn’t been getting much custom or one she is friendly with. You can expect to pay between 1,500 – 3,000 baht depending on the parlor and the girl you select.
The most popular soapy massage parlors are in North Pattaya close to Big C, Tiffany’s and Alcazar, look for Sabai Room, Sabai Dee Massage and 3 or 4 more around the North Pattaya area. Soapy massage parlors can also be found on Soi Honey (off Soi Baukhow), and Walking Street.
