Other Side of the Coin: Although I generally write about love-struck foreigners being taken to the financial cleaners by working girls, the following incident shows that it’s not all a one-way street.
The management of the Giligin’s ogling den (Pattayaland Soi 1) have an ongoing policy of giving away free bar fines to anyone who enters their chrome pole palace clutching a piece of paper specifically offering such a freebie and downloaded from their website.
Unfortunately, the promotion backfired in somewhat unforeseen circumstances recently when an American man came in, waved the appropriate piece of paper and took a chrome pole hugger back to his sleeping palace.
The last thing the young lass remembers is being given a brandy and, quite some time later, being woken up by the hotel maid. The room was empty and the girl was suffering intense pain. It transpires that the low-life had slipped the girl a ‘mickey’ and then proceeded to do as he liked with her before skipping out without paying.
The girl wound up having to go to hospital and missed a couple of days of work into the bargain. Needless to say, the scumbag hasn’t been seen since.
Giligin’s have now changed the policy to a Sierra Tango-style bar fine, thus ensuring that there cannot be repeat of the above incident.
Nobody deserves to be treated in such an inhumane fashion and I can only hope that the perpetrator eventually gets his comeuppance in an appropriate fashion.
Spice up yer date: I’ve been threatened with the non-surgical removal of a vital part of my reproductive anatomy if I disclose the name of the person at the centre of the following story; however, in the spirit of true ‘damn the torpedos’ journalism, I feel it is my duty to present the foibles of Fun Town wherever and whenever I find them.
So just who was the bouncy manager of a local ogling den who had four Japanese tourists come into his play palace and, after three of them paid the bar fine for three dancing maidens, was asked by the fourth man if he [the manager] was available? I thought he was walking in an unusual fashion recently.
Auditioning for Fashion TV: The Blues Factory lounge lizard libation room (Soi Lucky Star, bottom end of Walking Street) runs a weekly fashion show on Monday nights, kicking off at around midnight. Working damsels from various establishments are coerced into pretending to be runway models, with financial prizes as the major incentive.
Young maidens from places like the Tahitian Queen 2 and Dollhouse ogling dens, as well beer boozers from as far away as Soi 8, have all had entrants in the lingerie shows which attract a sizeable audience each week. Come early to get a good ogling seat.
New name, new location: The Hot and Cold 2 ogling den, which was located in the lane between Soi 7 and Central Pattaya Road, recently found itself among those places targeted in the crackdown on licences and moved to temporary accommodation in the old Super Lady chrome pole palace in Soi 6/1. By the time you read this, it should once more be back in the laneway between Soi 7 and Central Road but with a new name: Full Moon Night.
I rather think the name, Full Moon Night, suits the den, given the amount of ‘mooning’ that tends to feature as part of the entertainment. The operators of Full Moon Night are in no way connected with the Hot and Cold ogling den in Soi Post Office.
A rose by any other name: The Las Vegas ogling den (Soi Post Office) was one of the places compelled to close down for a few days during the recent crackdown, but now all the requisite licences and other bits of official looking paper have been issued and the place has undergone a name change to Club Nevada. Don’t expect to enter the premises and be faced with a bank of poker (or, as the Americans say, ‘slot’) machines and roulette wheels; it’s still an ogling den offering cheap drinks.
