    What's the attraction?

    During the last trip to LOS I went wandering thru the bars of Pattaya, CM and Soi Cowboy several times.

    Mostly this was to meet someone for a drink in what are err.. pleasant surroundings.
    Most of the time I was home early enough - once or thrice I was out a bit later than I'd indicated I might be ...

    Mrs M does her best to accept that this is something I do, have always done and will probably continue to do when holidaying in LOS...

    ...as over a decade of wandering thru Soi Cowboy has not erased my interest in the place, I've had good nights there, so-so nights and a few great nights ...

    Yet, given that most of those nights are basically the same thing - she did ask a question that has got me thinking about why I still do the same thing each time ...

    "Why Aren't you bored with it yet?"

    What is it about us men that we never get bored with looking at young semi-naked women whilst we drink alcohol?

    Enjoy...
    Life is the unexpected ...

    I will be seeing all the main "Areas of interest" this trip as I have during all the others.
    Start as you mean to continue and you can't go wrong.
    Oh and when will I become bored with it...? About the same time the Mrs becomes bored with shopping for handbags, clothes and shoes...5555

    I`ve kinda reverted to what i use to do back home for a good night out these days....watch some footy,MotoGP,car racing,live music and restaurants with some mates and a few beers.
    Occasionally end up at a beer bar or a gogo which can range from downright boring to ok as i`m really over the interview thing and LD requests from the girls..yawn!

    +1 . In Patong like Bars such as the Dolphin Bar, and in BKK Bar 4 , as you can have a drink and a chat without interruption. If you want to play the game you can if you want to. Know the girls are making a living, but if the attention becomes over the top, off to another bar we will go.

    Different perspective. For you minder because I know you like to think about movies.



    I say to you. Every time you save a lamb. Think about it. Tell me if I get it very wrong.

    ^I don't think Minder goes there thinking he will save any lambs... it's more a primeval call of the wild...

    I generally will have a quick look at the temples, before moving down to the more interesting bits about 18 inches below 555


    I do find that the bars and girls, whilst still an attraction to me. They are only a part of the package that is LOS that I enjoy.
    I just enjoy the different lifestyle and all that goes with it whilst I am over. Food, scenery heat and general buzz all do it for me.

    its nice to have the fanny there in the background.....and works as a coversational lubricant when you are out getting lubricated with yer mates...but I'd be a much happier camper if someone would turn that fkn music down or at least play a song i hadn't heard 10 times that fkn night

    What is it with loud music? Is it because most Thais are hard of hearing?

    It does not seem to bother them at all...you would think they would play a bit more farang friendly music...

    I think it was Kiss a-gogo on Soi LK Metro in Pattaya - my friend and his mate called it the Epileptic Bar - five minutes in the place and you knew why - loud techno music and flashing strobe lights - if I had tried to design a place that would drive customers away I could not have done it better. Yet go a few doors down to say, Lady Love, on the same Soi and the adjusted combination of music, girls and grog creates a place you don't want to leave...

    enjoy...

    What is not to like? I know some guys say they get bored at go-go's, but I can never see that happening. It is like DP's pics thread ... how can you ever get bored at that? The drinks are a bit overpriced, the music can sometimes be a bit loud, but I find it far more fun then sitting on a stool in a regular bar playing Connect 4.

    ^See... I much prefer sitting at a bar playing connect 4.... 555. I want to talk to the girls. Get some chemistry going. GoGos are fine.. but other than Angelwitch or Long Gun which have "performances" I get bored pretty quick watching girls doing vague impersonations of dancers...

    I agree. It's too uncomfortable sitting in a GoGo while the girls are grinding on a pole trying to make eye contact with you. Especially if you are not interested in a particular one but she won't give up. I don't mind going for a look for an hour or 2 but I just get bored any longer than that.

    An hour or two.....? Last time i poked my head in an agogo joint I didn't even make a minute or two, but each to their own.

    Time was when chrome pole palaces were a bit of fascination and fantasy, but even then it was just a beer, seldom two. I much prefer quieter places where I can indulge in a little more social intercourse.

    My father once told me - "son I might be married to your mother but it doesn't stop me from window shopping" - a phrase I have never forgotten and a good one to live by I think ....5555
