Drinking Street number one for Pattaya Drinking Bars

Drinking Street has recently eclipsed Soi 7 and 8 as a number one choice for Pattaya Drinking Bars.

Pattaya Drinking Bars Drinking Street Kwan
We will be putting up a couple of new Kwan and Mam Pattaya Drinking Bars videos soon. Perhaps a slideshow or two also.

Sizzling Kwan is still at Pattaya Drinking Street but she’s moved over to the Koracha Bar with sensuous Mam still at Drinking Street’s Frog Bar.  The new girl in this video is at one of the bars just kitty corner from the Koracha Bar. So take your pick. Either one will show why Drinking Street has recently become the top choice of Pattaya Drinking Bars.

But stay tuned for some oldies but goodies from Pattaya Drinking Street.  I have found a few videos I’ve not put on You Tube.  These will be classics.  And mainly because Mam is no longer in Pattaya.  The rumors are she’s in Hong Kong.  Meanwhile Kwan shows up every now and then on Drinking Street.  But the crowd has changed on Drinking Street over the past couple of years.  Lots of Arabs there now.  And lots of fat Pattaya bar girls who have taken over.  Then there’s the da da music.  Man….I hate that electro noise.  The United States does not play it.  Americans would not put up with this abomination that many Thai women love to dance to.

Now I’m out of Pattaya drinking bars where can get video good enough to match the old Kwan Mam classics.  And man, am I frustrated

My problem is this.  I can probably meet Kwan on Drinking Street.  But even if she puts on a great show.  That da da music is going to offend me.  So whatever video we produce on Drinking Street is going to be piss poor.

A couple of years ago, we took Kwan to Best Bar on Soi 8.  Kwan had never gone there.  After a couple of tequilas she asked me:  “Can I dance here?”  I got permission and Kwan got right up on the bar and put on a tremendous show.  But the music was Da Da noise.    So here’s what I did.  I got two different versions of “All Along the Watchtower”.  One of these versions was from the Grateful Dead.  Here it is.

In my video editing program I mixed both All Along the Watchtower sound tracks with the originally totally shitty da da music.   I got terrific results from this.  No one can really identity the music Kwan was dancing to in my video.  So You tube couldn’t red flag me for copyright violation. You tube has oftentimes done this to my videos before.  Sometimes you tube completely stripped all the audio in my videos.  So I came up with this.  I got music that was worthy of Kwan’s talent.

So where am I doing to go next to shoot great video?  I can’t think of a place where I can find the girls and music to match the old Mam and Kwan classics.   I suppose it’s time to write a new book.  A sequel to Welcome to the Fun House.

For now I’ll leave you with one of the Old Drinking Street classics.

Pattaya BarGirls meet East Saint Louis Cement Mixer

Not only can Pattaya Drinking Street bar girl Kwan down an East Saint Louis Cement Mixer, She can also compete with the best American Feature Entertainers?

So who came up with this special concoction I call the East Saint Louis cement mixer?

East Saint Louis cement mixer
Delilah, who danced at Stimmelators as Renee got me started on  the East Saint Louis cement mixer.

I took this picture with a Kodak digital camera that produced only 375000 pixels.  Compare this to my Nikon 750 which creates 24,000,000 pixels and you will see how outmoded that camera was.  But that was twenty years ago when NOBODY was shooting digital  in strip clubs.  But back then Renee was the cat’s meow as far as I was concerned.  Renee, however, didn’t dance long.  She didn’t even live in Indiana.  Renee lived in a small Michigan town 73 miles from the club.

It turned out that Renee was much more than a hot looking stripper with a beautiful body.  Renee could completely take a computer apart and rebuild it.  She also shared my completely whacked out sense of humor.   We had a lot in common.  So we became fast friends.  But in Michigan she was now living the “normal life” of a small town gal taking care of her family.

She got married.  But she asked me to take her wedding pictures.  Her husband and I became friends.

Even so, she accompanied me to Nudes A Poppin as my photography  assistant.  With her husbands blessing.

I visited Renee and her family in Michigan several times.  And every time I went to Stimmelators to take pictures of the topless dancers, Renee and her husband would drive 73 miles from Michigan to see me.  And my friends.  But mostly me.  Once or twice Renee would visit her stripper friends and go to Indiana alone.

And so it went.  With a whole lot to tell.  But one night Renee and her husband joined all of us at Stimmelators.  Keith was one of the guys in our group.  And as I said before Renee had a totally whacked out sense of humor.  She bought Keith and me two cement mixers.  Which was a shot of tequila in a shot glass and another shot of Bailey’s Creme.  Then she made Keith and me gulp a shot of Baileys with an immediate follow up of lime juice.  Now that just about made Keith and me sick on the spot.  Because Renee asked us to keep both shots in our mouths.  Then she had us hold the Baileys and Lime in our mouths without swallowing.  For over twenty seconds before she told us we could swallow.

Then she just sat there laughing her ass off at us

Renee’s little prank inspired me to introduce the East Saint Louis Cement mixer.  Renee was and she would always be my favorite stripper ex stripper of all time.  So when I went back to the Saint Louis Metro East I thought of a new improved cement mixer.  I went to Dollies Playhouse in Washington Park Illinois.  Which was a black suburb of East Saint Louis.  And I started buying a special concoction for several of my best friends in the club.

The East Saint Louis cement mixer became one shot of tequila and one shot of Lime juice

Which we all put in our mouths without swallowing either shot.  While I instructed my friends to hold in their mouths for 30 seconds or so.  Shake our heads to the two liquids mixed in our mouths.  And swallowed.   And man what a kick that was.

Alabama at Dollies Playhouse. She would become one of Dollies foremost advocates for the East Saint Louis cement mixer. In this picture Alabama pretends to be Sister Margarita, a Catholic nun who got lost driving in East Saint Louis. And who wandered into Dollies to ask for directions. In this little skit I produced and put on the internet, Hawk the manager of Dollies goes into the toilet to take a whiz. And while urinating he spots the nun on the toilet. This was the first episode of what became Trendy Toilet sex at Dollies

Our favorite drink at Dollies Playhouse was tequila.  The strippers were drinking it.  And so were a couple of the strip club managers.  Especially Big Howard, who became my best manager friend of all.  So it wasn’t long before customers started coming into Dollies asking for an East Saint Louis cement mixer.

I always did hang around some of the hottest house dancer strippers and feature entertainers while writing for American adult magazines and shooting pictures of them on stage.

 

At the Pure Talent Feature Showcases

We’d stay at the same hotels together and sometimes I’d room with one of the features while the clubs foot the bill. Sometimes there would be as many as 19 feature entertainers in the same hotel, the feature entertainers coming in from across the U.S.  to perform in feature showcases for the Pure Talent Agency.

The way it would work is Pure Talent would convince a topless club owner to host the event.  It might cost the topless club owner  $15,000 to $20,000 to cover all the costs including his fee to the Pure Talent Agency.  The owner’s costs would include hotel rooms for all the feature entertainers performing at the showcase.  Typically Pure Talent would pair off the adult entertainers two to a room.  Sometimes it would assign one of the entertainers to me so the girl and I would share a room together.   Other times I’d get a room to myself which the topless club owner would wind up paying for.

For two of three nights straight each feature entertainer would do her shows to other topless club owners and the club’s customers.

Each entertainer had to do two carefully choreographed shows, the idea being to completely impress the visiting topless club owners so that they’d want to book her shows.   The owner booking one of the Pure Talent features would wind up paying the feature entertainer say $2000 to $12000 for say a three day period as well as her hotel and airfare expenses and out of that Pure Talent would get a 15 % booking fee.

I traveled with Pure Talent to Club Oasis in Philadelphia, Las Vegas where I shot the stars at Club Sapphires, Club Fantasies in Providence, Rhode Island, the Candy Store in Mobile, Alabama, and several times at one of the Pure Talent favorite clubs, Big Als in Peoria, IL. to mention just a few.   So why would Big Al want to fork over all that money to Pure Talent, and not just once, but at least three times?

For one thing he’d spend even more money advertising the event on radio and television.  It all got to be pretty expensive.  Well, compared to Chicago, IL, Peoria is a pretty small place, so here’s what Big Al got out of it.  Big Al and his club acquired the reputation for being the absolute finest gentlemen’s club in Illinois.  When it came to enjoying the respect of the talent agencies, the feature entertainers from all over the U.S., his fellow topless club owners, and his club’s customers as large a city as Chicago is, the clubs there could not begin to acquire Big Al’s reputation for excellence.

I shot one of my first Pure Talent feature showcases at Reginas, in Springfield, Missouri and it was there that I met Big Daddy who was then the general manager of something like 14 clubs across four states.

We would become best of friends, and it would be Big Daddy who’d later travel with me to Thailand.  So what does this all have to do with Kwan and the Pattaya Drinking Street bars?  Trust me, she’s right up there with the best of America’s feature entertainers and she’s a great drinking companion as well.

More Pattaya Drinking Street Sizzling Kwan Video

Kwan could easily be one of Pattaya Walking Street’s highest paid go go dancers.  Instead she  performs at a Pattaya Drinking Street beer bar.

This and many other videos demonstrate that some real gems can be found in a Pattaya beer bars

Pattaya Drinking Street
Kwan and Mam were the two big stars on Pattaya Drinking Street. There were a lot of bar girls here, considering there’s over 30 beer bars. But Kwan and Mam eclipsed them all by a considerable margin.

I’ll tell a little secret on Kwan.  For a few months she pretty much disappeared from Pattaya Drinking Street.   Because she was living in my condo building up here in Naklua.  Now don’t get the wrong idea.  Kwan was never my girlfriend.  But she is a good friend who has loads of talent working the bar.   And she made me look good as a photographer.  But I believe she realized that I made her look good also.  So we had a symbiotic relationship.  And, we both really enjoyed the tequila.  Or for that matter drinking just about anything together.

Take that video I shot of Kwan over on Soi 8 at the Best Bar.  She was living in my condo then.

A small group of us had dinner on the beach at the Pullman Hotel.

Our group has gotten used to watching Kwan dance at Pattaya Drinking Street

So tonight we decided to do something a little different.  Although none of us hang out at Soi 8, we decided to go to Pattaya Soi 8 Best Bar because the bar girls do a lot of dancing there.  And I figured with luck I could get Kwan up on that bar.  And sure enough she couldn’t stand to be in the background.  So with all those other bar girls getting all the attention due to their dancing, Kwan asked me:  “Will the bar allow me to get up there and dance?”  It did.  And Kwan performed great, as always.

Shooting Pattaya bar girls dancing on Drinking Street with the Panasonic Lx10

This video includes the Pattaya Drinking Street gang of seven and other Drinking Street Pattaya bar girls dancing on the beer bar stages in this Pattaya bar complex.  But I’m not shooting with the Panasonic Lx10.  Not just yet.

Pattaya bar girls dancing
I shot a lot of video of Pattaya bar girls dancing when I got this picture of Mam over at the Frog Bar on Drinking Street. My Panasonic Lx10 would have done even better here. And so would my Nikon D750. But when I got this picture of Mam I had neither of them.

The video is one of the first Pattaya Drinking Street bar girl videos I shot.  My camera was the Panasonic LX5.   I’m now using the Panasonic LX7.  I think my later videos are superior to these earlier ones.  When you think LX 5 and LX 7, don’t think Panasonic.

Think Leica with the very finest German and Japanese technology inside.  These are very fast cameras with superior low light performance in a small package.

LX5 has a very fast 2.0 lens.  That’s what I used here.  But the LX7 has a 1.4 lens which is absolutely incredible.

When I’m videoing Pattaya bar girls dancing  I must ratchet the quality of my videos up even more.  My latest camera is my Panasonic Lx10.

Like its predecessor, the Panasonic Lx7 the Panasonic Lx10  has the terrific Leica 1.4 lens.  Which enables it to shoot most of the time without flash.  But the Panasonic Lx10 produces 20 megapixel images whereas the Panasonic Lx7 is limited to 10.  The Panasonic Lx10 also has a sensor that’s more than twice the size of the Lx7.  The Panasonic Lx10 can also shoot 4 k video.  And it boasts an array of gee whiz features that’s simply mind boggling.

However, if I really want to get serious with video I go for my Nikon D750 SLR.  With my favorite lens, the Nikon 24-70 2.8, it’s a professional rig.  I’m much more used to it than the much smaller Panasonic Lx10.  There’s a lot more external controls that eliminate digging into the cameras menus.  And the controls are so much larger.  Which makes them so much more usable for my big fingers. Its heavy.  The lens alone weighs an entire kilogram.  And it’s intimidating.  But so far I’ve never used it to shoot Pattaya bar girls dancing, with the exception of at the Pen Bar.

Panasonic Lx10 picture of Kwan

I just had to sneak this latest picture and video in here.

I put my own music at the beginning and end of this video.  For one thing most of what’s playing now on Drinking Street is unacceptable.

Big Daddy, Big Bruce and I left Drinking Street even though we really like Kwan.  Da Da is simply pure noise and that’s what’s playing practically everywhere now.

Pattaya Christmas video on Drinking Street with Kwan and friends

This  Pattaya Christmas video is one of my greatest Pattaya Bar Girl videos ever.  I think you will agree.  Don’t let the title Christmas video fool you because this video sizzles.  This Christmas video is one big drunk with loads of Pattaya bar girl non stop action from a Pattaya Drinking Street favorite bar of ours.

Three or was it four very pretty bar girls show up at the Drinking Street Koracha Bar.  With me and four or five of my pals.  And our favorite bar girl is here.  Kwan, and she’s full of herself.  But Kwan is more than just a favorite of the guys.  The girls we brought with us love Kwan to death and vice versa.

Pattaya Christmas video

The tequila is flowing.  And before long several of Kwan’s bar girl friends are totally wasted.

We even got our condo manager here in this Pattaya Christmas video

But I’m not about to reveal which girl she is.  She’s no bar girl though.

This Pattaya Christmas video moves at a relentless pace.  The action never lags.

Most of our crowd is wearing Santa Claus garb.  The girls keep prodding Kwan.  While Kwan keeps teasing her bar girl friends.  She keeps slapping one of best friends on the ass.  Hard.  One of the older bar girls starts walking across the bar.  She is wobbling. Drunk drunk drunk.  Then Kwan’s dancing on top of the bar.  Showing off in front of over 20 other bars here on Drinking Street.  With her fine ass constantly pulsating.

At last, when Kwan is not looking one of her bar girl friends puts ice down her pants.  At first Kwan doesn’t notice.  But when she finally does, she throws a fit.  In this Pattaya Christmas video you might guess that Kwans got ant in her pants.  But it’s too chilly outside for the insects.

New Year’s Eve young Pattaya girl sizzles in sensational Jack Corbett video

This New Year’s Eve young Pattaya girl sizzles and so does the dazzling fireworks display lighting up the Pattaya night.  But I’ve heard this young Pattaya  girl is  just twenty.

young Pattaya girl
This is not the young Pattaya girl in the Jack Corbett you tube video. When I took this picture, she was working with Mam at the Frog Bar.

This video’s got an incredible show of fireworks, and it showcases Dick Fitswell as a cartoon entering the video itself.  Which I think is very appropriate because the star character of my book, Dick Fitswell the man in Quest of a Perfect Fit is a cartoonish character.  There’s over 25 short Dick Fitswell stories in the book, but I think Dick Fitswell is too often misunderstood.  When you read the book, just think of him in this video, as a cartoon.

We are celebrating New Year’s Eve at the Koracha Bar.  In this video Kwan is not taking center stage.  Instead, she’s cavorting with our gang.  Which includes several of our girlfriends.

Kwan not Young Pattaya girl in this video
I don’t have any pictures of the young Pattaya girl in the video. But here’s Kwan. The gal in the black dress is one of our girlfriends. Make no mistake, Kwan is the star attraction here, no matter how pretty another girl might be. She might be one of two stars of Drinking Street, but she’s one of our pals also. We would go to Drinking Street to have fun with Kwan. And this is what brought us all here for New Year’s Eve.

The other big star on Drinking Street was Mam.  For awhile Kwan and Mam worked together at the Frog Bar.  Later, Kwan started working at the Koracha Bar a few bars up from Frog Bar.  Back then I think Kwan was around 25.  While Mam was around 29.   We all got to know Kwan a lot better when she moved into my condo buldiing.  But my impression of Kwan when we were getting to know her on Drinking Street is she was much less experienced than Mam.

Mam is no doubt the better dancer than Kwan.  Once Mam showed me a few pictures that had been taken of her in a professional photo shoot and in those pictures she was a knockout.  Although Kwan would wind up being my personal favorite, in many ways I could relate to Mam better.  She was older.  Mam was more mature.  She was also more conniving.

Example in point.  One night my pal, Ross, and I were drinking at the Frog Bar.  Ross wound up with a bar bill of around 1500 baht even though he was only drinking beer and not much at that. I can’t remember what stunt Mam had pulled on him, but neither of us were happy with Mam.

Ross and I went to another Bar.  Still on Drinking Street but a few bars away.  We started smoking a few cigarettes together but we quickly ran out of cigarettes.  So Ross went back to the Frog Bar to borrow cigarettes from Mam.  Not once but two or three times.  And we wound up getting something like 15 cigarettes from Mam.  Then Ross turned towards me and laughed:

“At least it’s something Jack.  A little revenge against Mam is better than nothing.”

After that Mam never tried to pull a stunt on either of us again.  Ross didn’t have enough money to pay his bar bill at the Frog Bar so I paid half of it.  I felt I should have foreseen the stunts Mam would pull on him.

Mam absolutely terrified one of my good friends from my condo.  He thought she was crazier than a loon.  But it takes people a lot scarier than Mam to make me uncomfortable.

But one night Ross and I went to the Frog Bar.  Where I wound up having many drinks with Mam.  We were drinking tequila.  Drunk (and so was I) Mam made some pretty strong sexual advances on me.  And I started responding.  Mam was looking awfully good and she really knew what she was doing.  Well, maybe not.  But my pal Ross persuaded me to leave the bar.

“All eyes are on you,” Jack.  “And you can be sure someone is going to tell your girlfriend about you and Mam.”

Anyway, Mam has moved to Hong Kong.  I’ve heard she’s married now.  And Kwan’s not working the bar on Drinking Street all that often.  The crowd on Drinking Street is now mostly Indians and Arabs.  I’ve heard they prefer fat women.  I don’t know if that’s true or not, but now there’s hardly one decent looking gal on Drinking Street.  The music’s about all Da Da now.   This is pure electro noise.  Which is very offensive to my friends and me.  So, Drinking Street is no longer even close to what it was.  With no Mam and hardly any of Kwan,  Drinking Street is no longer a place where we want to all get together.

I still see the old gang, but we are never all together anymore.  What drew us together in a single group was Kwan and Drinking Street.  Drinking Street was very good back then, but now it’s completely unacceptable.

Mam is not the Young Pattaya girl in this video
This is Mam when she was working at the Frog Bar. I have absolutely no pictures of the Young Pattaya girl in the video. But you will see a lot her in the video.

Many Pattaya expats view Pattaya sex tourists with disdain

Walking Street is the Mecca for Pattaya sex tourists who wish to sample the city’s wondrous night life and Pattaya bar girls.  Most of my expatriate friends view  these Pattaya sex tourists as total idiots when it comes to the women here.  The reason so many Pattaya expats have no use for these tourists is the majority of them act as if they know it all.  And fail to  seek advice from the guys who live here.  While they ignore such well meaning advice.

Unfortunately the increase of Pattaya sex tourists has increased significantly  due to the fast growth of Pattaya in recent years.  Corresponding to the resulting increase in demand the go go bars have increased their prices to an alarming level .  Which means that Pattaya seems destined to become a second Singapore or Hong Kong when it comes to buying sex.

Ultimately this is very bad for everyone including the bar girls.  And this goes even for  the fools who have caused the problem in the first place.  Because they will no longer be able to afford the girls.  As for the girls, if most men can no longer pay for them, the majority of them will soon be out of work.

Take last week when an American accompanied an expat friend of mine to the Walking Street go go bars.  I didn’t know this man at all.  Although I just met him and got the story first hand.  Perhaps he’s used to paying California prices for prostitutes of hundreds of dollars for just twenty minutes of sex.  Perhaps he doesn’t pay California sex workers at all thinking that he cannot afford their services.  I really don’t know, but this I do know.  He went into one of the go go bars with his expat friend.  Where he found a girl he wanted to have sex with.

Straight off, either the girl or the go go bar establishment told him he must pay 2,000 baht for short time ($60.00).  But then since he already had a  Thai girlfriend staying with him at his hotel, he needed a place to take the go go dancer.  So he had to pay another 300 baht for a short time room.   On top of that he had to pay a 700 baht bar fine for the go go bar to allow the girl to leave with him.  So he had to pay over 3000 baht or $100 American dollars for 30 minutes of short time sex.  But he was not quite finished yet.  And neither was the girl for that matter.  Feeling sorry for the girl for having to work in such miserable circumstances, he gave her a 1000 baht tip which  raised his cost to a total of $133.00.

His expat friend,  warned him to go elsewhere to look for a girl.  But this guy’s a tourist.  And as I’ve mentioned before, Pattaya sex tourists know so much more than the expats who live here full time.

Gene and I could have taken him to an entirely different area of Pattaya.   Where it costs between 500 and 800 baht to short time a girl.  And just 300 baht for a room with no bar fine whatsoever.  All he would have to pay would have been 800 to 1100 baht.  Chances are the girl would have been just as good looking.  And I can virtually guarantee that she would have been much better in bed than all the spoiled go go girls he had been banging.  But most Pattaya sex tourists just don’t seem to get it.

Did I mention spoiled go-go girls?  Yes, I most certainly did.  Because most of you Pattaya sex tourists are spoiling them rotten.  So that most of us who live here and know better, want absolutely nothing to do with them.

Insomnia Disco.  I don’t know about the Pattaya sex tourists but a lot of expats come here to pick up bar girls without having to pay bar fines.

First off, what the American who had just spoiled the go go girl didn’t realize is that once he had bar-fined her and turned her loose after having sex with her was now free to go find her second customer.  She might have returned to the go go bar looking for her second bar fine of the night, or now free to go wherever she pleased she might have gone to Lucifer’s disco or Tony’s or Insomnia as a free lancer to go with any man willing to pay her asking price.  A price that does not include a bar fine. I give you 80 percent odds she has a Thai boyfriend waiting for her at home, but whether she does or not you will notice that

most go go girls have no interest in spending the entire night with a customer versus your typical beer bar girl whose goal is the opposite–that is to spend the entire night so that she can impress her customer enough to spend additional nights with her.

With most go go dancers the name of the game is constant turnover rather than impressing a man so much that he might pay her for a week, a month, or even years of companionship.  But most Pattaya sex tourists cannot conceive of this.

Do you think I’m joking?  I live here so I know.  I used to frequent a beer bar near my condo that just happened to have the best looking group of bar girls around.  Time and time again after midnight or so, if the night was going slowly and the girls were not getting bar fined I’d watch a group of them leave the bar and stand together waiting for a baht taxi to take them down to Walking Street so they could go to Insomnia in search of customers.

When I first moved here to Pattaya 500 baht used to be the commonly accepted price for short time.  With go go dancers, the price of short time was 500-1000 baht with an all nighter costing up to 1500 baht.  Go to the same go go bars today and the girls are quoting anywhere from 2000 to 3000 baht short time, and sometimes even higher.

Japanese are not the worse Pattaya sex tourists
Takoi and I met in St. Louis when he was getting his Masters Degree in Engineering at Washington University while I was getting my MBA from St. Louis University. I was 26. Takoi a couple of years younger than me. Now we are both old farts. He’s a Japanese old fart while I’m an American OF. My Thai girlfriend and I visited Takoi in Tokyo in 2015. Here he is in his office. It’s Takoi who explained to me why too many Japanse Pattaya sex tourists allow Thai bar girls to take advantage of them.  (You Japanese are simply too nice).

Especially if their go go bar attracts mostly Japanese and Korean men for their customers.  Japanese men in particular are widely known on Walking Street to pay stratospheric prices for sex.

Now I just don’t understand most of these Japanese guys I see down on Walking Street throwing their money at the girls.  Sometimes they throw baht right at the girls dancing on the stage.  Other times they purchase ping pong balls from the bar which they then throw at the girls on the stage who scramble all over stage, groveling on their hands and knees to gather up as many ping pong balls as they can which they then turn into the bar for cash.  To me, there’s nothing more stupid than throwing money away at go go girls.  And yet, so many Japanese customers seem to enjoy doing it.

Perhaps it’s a modern Asian version of the old Indian Potlatch ceremony that’s at play here.  The Potlatch used to be a form of celebration practiced by Pacific Northwest Indians to demonstrate their wealth and status by giving away gifts to their peers who would then try to outdo their rivals by giving away even greater amounts of wealth.  So when it comes to throwing away lots of money at the girls, ping pong balls

or paying more for sex than the rest of us are used to paying, many Japanese just might be demonstrating, “I have more money than you, more power, or more status.

In effect they are trying to tell the world, “I am a real man because I can afford to throw my money away.”  Or perhaps they are getting a certain malicious pleasure out of seeing all these women humiliating themselves by groveling around on the floor for a few baht.

To be honest, I really don’t know, but I am going to Japan one week from now where I will be seeing a very old Japanese friend of mine.  I will be asking him, What is it with so many of these Japanese guys wanting to throw their money away at women?”  One thing for sure though is that many of these Japanese are spoiling things for a lot of men by driving the price for sex upwards to levels most men either won’t want to pay or who cannot afford it.

Now I really don’t have it in for the Japanese.  They build great cars, They produce wonderful cameras.  They are clean and orderly. And I am going all the way to Japan to see a very good friend of mine.  Who happens to be Japanese.   Who I’ve not seen in years but who is one of the best friends a man can have.

But I absolutely don’t understand why the Japanese behave so stupidly in Pattaya’s go go bars.

We Westerners revel in getting value for our money.  Even when it comes to women.  And throwing ping pong balls at the girls simply doesn’t equate to anything approaching value.  But the Japanese men are not the only stupid buffaloes around.  I find most American and European tourists to be even more stupid.  And the reason is they fail to heed the advice of those who know better.  Or after getting such advice, completely ignore it.

One more bit of advice, however.  Don’t think of Walking Street go go girls as being special.  I remember a certain slender girl who used to dance at Heaven Above.  A good friend of mine had the hots for her, and he wound up bar-fining her.  But he went out with us to a couple more go go bars.  But when he returned to Heaven Above, he found out that another man had bar-fined her.  Upon giving the option of picking another girl by the club, he declined and was given his bar fine back.

A couple of months later we found the same go go girl working at a Soi Six Bar where the cost of a room upstairs was 300 baht.  And where he no doubt would have wound up paying her just 500 baht for the short time.

Another Soi Six girl worked for a couple of weeks at Baccarat on Walking Street.  This is a club that has a very heavy Asian customer base.  At Baccarat her bar fine was 1000 baht.  And she was probably asking for another 2000 baht for her short time tip.  But she was not  making nearly as much money at Baccarat as she was making on Soi Six.  So  she soon returned to Soi Six.  Where she’s only getting an 800 baht tip.  But on Soi Six she’s banging the guys quite often.   So she makes a lot more money than she ever could at Club Bachara.

These are the same girls.  They have the same brains, the same bodies, and the same hearts.  But when they work at a Walking Street go go bar you get to spend a hundred American dollars.  So when they work on Soi Six you pay just one third the price.  That’s why so many of my expat friends are so contemptuous of the Walking Street go go bars.  Not to mention most Pattaya sex tourists regardless of nationality.

Bar girl bible Money Number One and Fool in Paradise banned from Thailand’s bookstores

The powers that be have banned not only Money Number One, Thailand’s  bar girl bible, but all of Neil Hutchisons books including  a Fool in Paradise.   Which is a shame because if Money Number One is the Old Testament Fool in Paradise is the New Testament for understanding Thailand bar girls.

You are the Fool in Paradise if you don’t buy Money Number One or Fool in Paradise.  And heed its advice

bar girl bible
Money Number one is the definitive bar girl bible that all men need to buy before they even think of encountering their first Thai bar girl.

Because almost every bar girl you encounter will target you as her next naive victim if you don’t.   But even if you read either of these Neil Hutchison masterpieces predator bar girls will probably still get the upper hand.   Because nothing you have ever learned in your home countries about women  has prepared you for the Thai bar girl.

A Fool in Paradise

So you will probably remain the Fool in Paradise who keeps forgetting that in Thailand Money is Number One.  The second thing you will probably never grasp is that you are not the exception to this Old Testament way of thinking.  Which is Money Number One applies to everyone.  Even you.

Even Neil Hutchison, the guru himself who compiled all this wisdom about bar girls, failed to grasp the messages he preached in his own books.  So in the end a shrewd and heartless Pattaya bar girl got the better of him.

But I need to tell the real story of how Thailand’s bookstores banned the bar girl bible

Today I went to the Central Pattaya Mall to get a copy for a very good friend of mine.  I had just visited him in Japan.  And I thought he’d get a big kick out of the book.   To my dismay I could find no copies of either “Money Number One” or any of Neil’s other books at Asia books. So I asked the bookstore attendant if she had “Money Number One”, and when she told me the bookstore had discontinued all of Neil’s books, I asked her why. She replied: “Because Thais have been complaining about the books because it shows Thais in a bad light.”

I then went to a second bookstore in the mall. Once again I asked where I could find, “Money Number One”? The woman in charge told me, “We don’t have it”.   And when I asked her why, she told me, “We have problems with the publisher (Neil Hutchison).

I then asked her, “Is the reason the same that Asia Books gave me? Which is that certain Thais have complained?”

She said yes.

This required further investigation so I emailed Neil Hutchison for the answer.

A few hours later a close associate of emailed me back.

He wrote:   “Certain do-gooders  complained about the cartoon front cover image for “A Fool in Paradise”.  Because it depicted Thai bar girls in a sexy, provocative light and that this detracted from Thailand’s image. So the authorities the bar girl bible and Fool In Paradise from Thailand’s bookstores.

Well that’s complete rubbish. Truth is when we are talking about the bar scene and most women associated with it, this is the way it is. And money is number one.  Neil exposes a major element of Thai society for what it really is and many Thais simply do not like the truth to be told.

Thankfully one can still occasionally buy one of Neil’s books in the shadows of Thailand’s mainline book stores where the more obscure shops can still be found or get a copy online from Neil’s web site Money Number One. I strongly urge anyone who comes to Thailand to get a copy, and to heed Neil’s advice. And if you are male and contemplate any form of relationship with a Thai woman consider it the Bible.  Just remember that there are no exceptions to Neil’s discouraging words of advice.    This includes you.

Curing obesity requires rejecting AMA calling obesity a disease

Curing obesity requires Americans  become proactive and reject the American Medical Association’s contention that obesity is a disease.

Put bluntly, the AMA is endorsing fatness as a way of life and what Americans should settle for.

I strongly suggest that in most cases  laziness, stupidity, obesity and lack of self respect causes obesity.  I also believe that the AMA is no  better than a tribal association of witch doctors.   So you might as well call me  Dr. Corbett and listen up.  If you care about curing obesity.

Let me guide you out of your fatness.  Stop believing all  this bacterial and virus nonsense the American Medical Association keeps spouting as the reason for your looking like a buffalo.  Come exercise with me, watch what you eat, and see who’s really right on this one.  The AMA or Dr. Corbett.

These are the elliptical machines and stair climbers I use at the Centara Grand Mirage Resort’s Fitness Center. I bring my own music on a usb and plug it into the machine. The music really pumps me up. On the elliptical machine I’m sweating like a mongoose in the first 10 minutes. But I’ve still got another 50 to 60 minutes to go.

Get on the elliptical machine for six days a week for an hour.  Or if you are slow, two hours a day until you exercise off 750 calories. Do it for a few months.  Watch what you eat and drink.  And keep score of  how many unnecessary calories you eat and drink.  Then come back and tell me whether or not I’m  right about curing obesity.

Think I’m off base? Consider that on February 21st, 2014 Sunday

the New York Times stated: “In June 2013, millions of Americans contracted a disease.  They developed it not because of some pathogen or illness, but thanks to the American Medical Association’s decision to label obesity a “multi-metabolic and hormonal disease state.”

Which means the AMA was telling fat Americans: “Accept your being an overgrown hippopotamus because there is nothing you can do about it.” There’s a lot to the article, which is well worth reading. Where the editorial falls short is it doesn’t provide any answers.  It  only poses the dilemma that it is difficult to make a choice between making people feel good about their obesity and inspiring them to actually do something about it.

Americans today weigh 25 pounds more than they did in the 1960’s The reason is Pizzas and McDonalds, a sedentary lifestyle and unwillingness to exercise did it.  And certainly not an incurable disease called obesity.

I am currently visiting Japan and I can guarantee you that neither the bacterial form of obesity or virus carried mutation has made any serious inroads here. For the most part I’m not seeing many fat people here in Japan.    So it’s important to look at what the Japanese are doing about  curing obesity.

A few days ago I asked my Japanese friend, Takoi, why Japanese women weren’t fat like American women. He replied: “Because Japanese women see thinness as the best way to be.”

That was in Tokyo, but now that I’m in Kyoto and have been here a few days longer, I must say that obviously the Japanese must be doing a lot of things right when it comes to being slender as opposed to the American approach advocated by the American Medical Association of “Don’t rock the boat. Feel good that you look like Jabba the Hut.”

The situation has gotten so bad that a good friend of mine who lives near me in Thailand told me, “I never want to bang another white woman ever again.” My friend is 71.

The truth is that most people can do something about their elephantine figures.

Here’s the Dr. Corbett secret.  Americans must use their brains and have the will power to do what must be done.  This is the only alternative to being ugly and fat for the rest of their lives.

Viewing themselves as victims of an incurable disease called Obesity as recommended by the AMA only serves to create an acceptance that being grotesquely fat and ugly is unavoidable.

Once again, I’m not the AMA, and I’m not about to tell you to feel good about yourself. So let’s just face the facts. Americans are not the same race of people they once were. Just keep in mind that

the average American soldier during World War II weighed just 152 pounds and that today the average American male weighs 194.7 pounds according to Wikipedia.

Whereas American females weigh 74.7 kilograms or 164.7 pounds. Good God, I’m 66 years old.  I am five foot eleven, and I still weigh only 75 kilograms,.  This is the same that I weighed in college.

So there is no excuse for  the rest of you.  I’m ashamed for my fellow Americans. The United States has become a hog farm for humans.  And I’m not afraid to say what the American Medical Association is either too gutless or too much into the profit motive to admit that Curing obesity requires Americans to actually do something about it.

Did I say profit motive?  Damn right I did. It’s either that or that  the AMA is dim witted. It all boils down to this. Fat people have a lot more health problems than thin people do. To begin with the typical American male’s heart was designed to support a body weight of 152 pounds.  This is the typical body weight of a World War II soldier. The heart was not designed to pump blood for a 195 pound body.  The human heart cannot keep supporting all those extra arteries,veins and tissue for nearly one third more body mass.

So to begin with Americans can expect a lot more circulatory problems and that means more profits for the doctors.

On the other hand, perhaps doctors are not really that greedy.  So then it’s gross stupidity that causes the AMA to lull Americans into acceptance of their corpulent bodies. And if it’s not stupidity, then it’s simply that the AMA is too gutless to tell the truth.

The truth is if you are American, chances are you are grossly overweight.  So you now have two choices. Either accept the fact that you are destined to being a fatso for the rest of your life.  Or  decide that you are going to conquer what the AMA chooses to cause a practically incurable disease called Obesity.   No matter what it takes.

The key to curing obesity is Americans must quantify how many calories they are putting into their bodies each day.  And then make sure that they burn off more calories than they consume.

For example, one bottle of lite beer contains around 110 calories. To burn that off I need to run one mile.  Or do eight minutes on the elliptical machine until the machine’s digital readout gets to 110 calories.

Centara Grand Mirage Hotel is where I have my fitness club membership. It costs a lot. But it’s got the best equipment and facility I know of. And if I am not exercising here, I am swimming for an hour a day or running 14 kilometers from Nakua Soi 16 to Walking Street and back.

I exercise very hard for one hour a day six days a week. In that hour if I’m on the elliptical machine I will burn off 750 calories which is good enough for 7  bottles of lite beer.  But if I’m drinking a non lite beer, that’ll come out to 160 calories so in that same hour I will burn off approximately 5 beers. Since I am undergoing so much pain during that hour, I favor drinking the lite beer over the higher calorie regular beer.  This means I am getting a lot more out of my one hour’s exercise.

Curing obesity at the Centara Fitness Center
It will set you back around $1000 a year and up for a fitness membership here. But figure it this way. My neighbors who play golf need a car to take them and their golf clubs way across Pattaya to the golf courses. And the fees they pay must run into the thousands. Many of my neighbors drink in the afternoons and they are going to pay a lot more for their drinks than I’ll ever pay here.  Many of them are obese, but I suppose Curing obesity is not relevant to them.

So what about one large piece of cheesecake? I’m not sure on that one, but I’ve read that an average size serving is 257 calories. This means 2.6 miles of running, fast walking, or over 20 minutes on the elliptical machine just for that single slice.

So what about those 14 beers I had last night? Yeah, I know, I know. I’m quite the derelict. 14 beers if they are lite beers comes out to around 1400 calories.

So if I am burning off 750 calories during one hour’s exercise session, it’s going to take two days in a row to burn all that beer off, which comes out to 1500 calories.  But only if these are lite beers. However I do not drink in the afternoons so a martini lunch is not in the cards.

I’ll usually have one big night out a week. But suppose I have two big nights out when I get sloshed to the gills? This comes out to 3000 calories. So I must keep in mind that 3600 calories equals one pound. If I keep that pace up for a month I’ll be gaining 3000 times 4 or 12,000 calories in that month. That means I am apt to gain about 3.5 pounds a month on account of the beer alone. However, I am hitting the exercise hard six days a week so that must be put into the equation. Six times 750 calories is 4500 calories that I’ve burned off. So that has to be balanced off against the 2800 calorie gain from  two nights beer drinking.

What all this boils down to are two words, Quantify and brain. That is one must use one’s brain to constantly quantify how many calories are being consumed versus how many calories one is burning off.  This is what it takes for curing obesity or at least to keep from becoming fat.

So what does it really take for Curing obesity?

A lot more than you think, and certainly a lot more than the doctors are telling you.  Who are recommending three days a week of exercise.  Which is complete  bull. When I work out on the elliptical machine I maintain a pace that most 30 year-olds are unwilling or unable to attain.

Perhaps I’m lucky and have been blessed with much better than average genes. But if that’s the case, there’s still hope for you.  Even if you think you have been victimized unfairly into suffering a lifetime of being fat and unsightly.

A big man often exercises next to me at the health club. Once I’ve done one hour’s torment and pain he’s just starting to hit his stride. The man will exercise for another hour. He’s British and I suppose he weighs over 300 pounds. He travels incessantly all over Southeast Asia, but when he does, he chooses hotels that have exercise rooms.  I’ve heard he’s lost at least 20 kilograms or over 50 pounds. And he’s still losing weight. But he’s got a long way to go still. His business keeps him working over 60 hours a week, yet he still manages to do two hour exercise programs.

This man knows what it takes for curing obesity. He’s an inspiration to me because I can tell you this….he’s undergoing a lot more physical pain and challenge than I’m having to overcome at just 75 kilograms. Compared to him I’m just another wimp.

Do not behave like a foolish tourist by overpaying Pattaya girls

 

Walking Street is renowned  for tourists who are guilty of overpaying Pattaya  girls.  Most of my expatriate friends view such tourists as total idiots when it comes to the women here. The reason so many expats despise sex tourists is the majority of them act as if they know it all.  Then fail to seek advice from the guys who live here.  And even if given well meaning advice, ignore it.

My favorite girl from Super Girls.  Unfortunately today finding girls like her on Walking Street is like finding a needle in a haystack.

But the worse thing about  foolish tourists is most of them are guilty of overpaying Pattaya girls for sex.    This is very bad for everyone including the women who work in the bars and night clubs in this city.   And ultimately for the fools who caused the problem who will no longer be able to afford the girls.  As for the girls, if most men can no longer pay for them, the majority of them will soon find themselves out of work.

Take the example last week of an American who accompanied an expat friend of mine to  Walking Street. I really don’t know this man at all although I just met him.

Perhaps he’s used to paying California prices for prostitutes of hundreds of dollars for just twenty minutes of sex. Perhaps he doesn’t pay California sex workers at all thinking that he cannot afford their services.

I really don’t know, but this I do know. He went into a go go bar with his expat friend and found a girl he wanted to have sex with.

Straight off, either the girl or the go go bar establishment told him it would cost him 2,000 baht for short time ($60.00). And then since he already had a girlfriend or wife staying with him at his hotel, he needed a place to take the go go dancer. The nearby short time room cost him another 300 baht. Then he had to pay the go go bar a bar fine of 700 baht for so that the go go girl could leave the bar with him. So he paid a total of 3000 baht or $100 American dollar for thirty minutes of short time. But he was not quite finished yet. Feeling sorry for the girl for having to work in such miserable circumstances, he gave her a 1000 baht tip.  Which raised his cost to $133.00.

His expat friend, another American, who just happens to live full time down the street from me probably warned him to go elsewhere to look for a girl.

But this guy’s a tourist, and as I’ve mentioned before, tourists know so much more than we expats.

Gene and I could have taken him to an entirely different area of Pattaya where he would have wound up paying between 500 and 800 baht to short time a girl and just 300 baht for a room with no bar fine whatsoever. His cost for short timing a girl would have been just $33.00. Chances are the girl would have been just as good looking, and I can virtually guarantee that she would have been much better in bed than the spoiled go go girl he had gone with instead.

Did I mention spoiled go-go girls? Yes, I most certainly did because most of you tourists are spoiling them to the point that most of us who live here and know better want absolutely nothing to do with them.

Typical tourist overpaying Pattaya girls
Don’t be a bonehead by overpaying Pattaya girls

What the American who had just spoiled the go go girl didn’t realize is that once he had bar-fined her and turned her loose after having sex with her, she was now free to find her second customer. She might have returned to the go go bar looking for her second bar fine of the night.  Or now free to go wherever she pleased she might have gone to Lucifer’s,  Tony’s or Insomnia as a free lancer to go with any man willing to pay her asking price.   A price that did not include a bar fine.

I give you 80 percent odds she has a Thai boyfriend waiting for her at home.

But whether she does or not you will notice that most go go girls have no interest in spending the entire night with a customer.  Versus your typical beer bar girl whose goal is the opposite.  Which is to spend the entire night so that she can impress her customer to spend additional nights with her.

With most go go dancers the name of the game is constant turnover. Instead of impressing a man so that he might pay her for a week.  A month.  Or even years of companionship.

Do you think I’m joking? I live here, so I know. I used to frequent a beer bar near my condo that had the best looking group of bar girls around. Time and time again after midnight or so, if the night was going slowly and the girls were not getting bar fined, I’d watch a group of them leave the bar and stand together waiting for a baht taxi to take them down to Walking Street to go to Insomnia for customers.

Ten years ago  overpaying Pattaya girls was not very common

When I first moved here to Pattaya 500 baht used to be the  accepted price for short time. With go go dancers, the price for short time would have been 500-1000 baht.  While an all night long time cost up to 1500 baht. Go to the same go go bars today and the girls are quoting  2000 to 3000 baht short time.   And sometimes even more.  Especially if their go go bar attracts mostly Japanese and Korean men for their customers. Japanese men in particular are widely known on Walking Street to pay stratospheric prices for sex.

Now I just don’t understand most of these Japanese guys I see down on Walking Street overpaying Pattaya girls.  Sometimes they throw baht right at the girls dancing on the stage.  And they often purchase ping pong balls  which they throw at the girls on the stage.  The girls  scramble all over stage.  Groveling on their hands and knees to gather up as many ping pong balls as they can which they redeem at the bar for cash. To me, there’s nothing more stupid than throwing money away at go go girls.

And yet, so many Japanese customers enjoy overpaying Pattaya girls

Perhaps it’s a modern Asian version of the old Indian Potlatch ceremony that’s at play here. The Potlatch used to be a form of celebration practiced by Pacific Northwest Indians to demonstrate their wealth and status by giving away gifts to their peers who would then try to outdo their rivals by giving away even greater amounts of wealth.

So when it comes to throwing away lots of money at the girls, ping pong balls or paying more for sex than the rest of us are used to paying, many Japanese just might be demonstrating, “I have more money than you, more power, or more status. In effect they are trying to tell the world, “I am a real man because I can afford to throw my money away.”

Or perhaps these Japanese sex tourists are getting a certain malicious pleasure out of seeing all these women humiliating themselves by groveling around on the floor for a few baht.

To be honest, I really don’t know, but I am going to Japan one week from now where I will be seeing a very old Japanese friend of mine. I will be asking him, What is it with so many of these Japanese guys wanting to throw their money away at women?” One thing for sure though is that many of these Japanese are spoiling things for a lot of men by driving the price for sex upwards to levels most men either won’t want to pay or who cannot afford it.

Now I really don’t have it in for the Japanese. They build great cars, They produce wonderful cameras. They are clean and orderly.

And I am going all the way to Japan just to see a very good friend of mine, who happens to be Japanese, who I’ve not seen in years. I can go on and on about their wonderful attributes. But I absolutely fail to understand their ridiculous and stupid behavior when it comes to the go go bars here in Pattaya. We Westerners revel in getting value for our money. Even when it comes to women. And throwing ping pong balls at the girls simply doesn’t equate to anything approaching value. But in the end as stupid as so many of these Japanese men seem to be, I find most American and European tourists to be just as stupid by failing to seek the advice of those who know better or upon getting such advice, completely ignoring it.

One more bit of advice, however. If you think Walking Street go go girls are top drawer you will wind up overpaying Pattaya girls for sex

I remember a slender girl who used to dance at Heaven Above Go Go.  A good friend of mine had the hots for her so he bar-fined her. But he went out with us to a couple more go go bars.  After he returned to Heaven Above, he found out that another man had bar-fined her.  The club gave him the option of picking another girl.  But he wisely declined the offer and was given his bar fine back.   So this night he was able to avoid overpaying Pattaya girls and get a second shot at her later.

A couple of months later we found her working at a Soi Six Bar.  There’s no bar fine.  One only has to pay for  a room upstairs for 300 baht.

But here on Soi Six he would have had to pay her just 500 baht for short time versus the 2000 baht she was getting as a Walking Street go go girl

Another Soi Six girl worked for a couple of weeks at Baccarat Agogo on Walking Street, a club that has a very heavy Asian customer base. At Baccarat the Soi Six girl’s bar fine was 1000 baht.  And she would probably be asking another 2000 baht for short time. Not able to make nearly as much money at Baccarat as she had been making on Soi Six she soon returned to Soi Six where a man can have sex with her for 1000 baht.  700 baht for her and 300 for the room upstairs.

Go to Soi Six and avoid overpaying Pattaya girls

These are the same girls. They have the same brains, the same bodies, and the same hearts.  But when they work at Walking Street go go bars you spend a hundred American dollars for them.  But when they work on Soi Six you pay just one third the price. That’s why so many of my expat friends are so contemptuous of the Walking Street go go bars.  And men who are overpaying Pattaya girls.
