My first visit was in 1987. We stayed at a hotel which would have been on the grounds of the Royal shopping mall. I agree that the guys seemed to very much like farangs. 2d Road was a dirt road in many places. Gentlemen's Club was popular, but the age of the guys so questionable that I did not go more than once. (Some looked to be about 12.) Otherwise, the layout was much the same, deducting all of the new buildings since then.

When was the one-way (Beach Road/2nd Road) system introduced?

Actually there was no question about it. The owner actually told me he pays 60,000 baht per month for certain members of the local constabulary to look the other way at his under-age boys.

Not surprisingly, about two or three years ago he was arrested at his home on "The Dark Side." As you probably already guessed, he was caught with under-age boys. I don't know what became of him, but I'll bet it wasn't good.

The Belgian owner of the former Studio boys met the same fate.

I can't remember whether he ended up arrested or was forced to shut down and leave the country.

My first trip to Bangkok - stayed in Montien hotel at 3300 per night - was year 2000 i think (old passport long gone). I assumed that was a good price compared to European hotels lol

Spent my first night hating Bangkok as it was so damn hot and i sweated so much. Made it a few hundred yards and spent the whole night in an open air beer bar talking football and watching rugby with 2 straight Australian guys. No boys or ladys in sight. Already swearing i`d never come back again - so damn humid. Second night i discovered golden cock and happy endings and an all night karaoke with guys fighting over me and i fell in love with Thailand.


First trip to Pattaya - my eyes were on stalks. Set out with my expensive tight Italian leather pants & designer top on - that lasted 10 minutes despite the wolf whistles from all directions ( all muscle and no belly back then lol ).........way too hot and shorts were quickly changed into. Ended up with my first ever (wonderful) 3 way and a drunken dance party afterwards. Cafe royal was my aircon and food haven back then.

First trip to country side was a small village in Udon Thani area. Hated it - loud mozzies who feasted on me - incessant rain on tin shack rooftops. Locals who stared and shouted Oi farang every few minutes. One mor lam concert the next day and a3 different "encounters" on day 3 and i was in love with the country side.


First impressions definitely did NOT count!
