Incomes: bar work vs conventional?

And a very damaged liver I'd suspect

If she's smart, she'll drink cola or water disguised as tequila shots!

It appears lots of people have experienced the bar girl scene and appear to know lots about them. I very seldom go to the places anymore. Frankly, tired of all the nonsense they spout and the same stuff over and over again.  I have almost 5 decades visiting these places and have talked to hundreds in both Thai and English. Most do not like the job . Most do not like sex. Most drink because they have to. Some are alcoholics and addicts. Some are mentally ill. Whether they were addicts or alcoholics prior to entering the trade is unclear but certainly the trade is not helping them recover.

 

Remember that Thais are very clever at acting and hiding their true feelings. If you know them well and become friendly over a period of time- you will see the real person behind the smile or scowl. I know a few of the girls who have been successful and became owners of the bars. They don't like men at all- are hardened and disgusted with life and generally could care less about much of anything.

 

Many of the women going into the trade are fooled into believing they will get 'rich' or find that one punter who will take care of them and take them to another country.  It does happen to some and I have seen many come back to Thailand disillusioned and back in the business.

These girls would be much better off getting educated; getting a stable job paying a living Thai wage and staying in Thailand.  As Thailand becomes more industrialized and opportunities increase less and less girls will enter the trade and many of the GoGos and other  'girlie' bars will disappear.

Your last paragraph, it will not happen quickly as peerpressure will not allow it and the cultural mindset needs a huge overhaul. I met a 40 yr old woman in a beerbar a while ago who stounded me by saying that she is a good mum for her 15 yr old son, who lives with her parents. No dad in the picture. I just shook my head. Another kid who sees his mother 3 times a year. 

 

Mai pen rai !

It's the same as in the "normal life"

 

The high achievers / hottests chicks make fortune

 

The low to average make accordingly on how much crap then can take... ie drunk, vulgar, 70y old supermans

 

As per many reports the hot ones say that they only go with Japanese or Koreans... 3 inches for 3 minutes and 5000+ thb

 

i always laugh at how desperately some fellows  believe the  3 inches for 3 minutes nonsense.

One a day by an exceptional attractive lady 2 days off a week Bkk 100,000 a month easy.

Most I talked too only get three or four days off a month, they shoot for three lady drinks a day (12 hour shifts) and can easily make 100,000 per month.  I know two that are buying Condos in Onut BTS area on their bar salaries.  They are both lookers, speak english and are not hustlers (which in itself is a good ploy, it's almost as if you want to buy them a drink)

Coyote bar dancers don't go with customers.

The first bar I went to in Chiang Mai had a girl I bought a drink for that didn't go with customers.

There was a post on a C M thread about a bar that has girls that don't.

I have been in enough barbeers in my time, but I only chatted to one of the girls in each so I can't speak for the other 10,000 girls that I didn't chat to.

 

 

We are talking at cross purposes.

 

I was disputing the bar layout where all the girls are behind a bar and so it would need long arms to grope them. In all the bars I have been to most the girls are in front of the bar. It will get hellish crowded if they all stoof behind the bar.

 

Otherwise whether a girl goes with customers is always down to the girl herself. Much to the chagrin of many guys who have thought otherwise. Indeed I have witnessed a couple of blow-ups in bars due the girl refusing to go after she has downed a bunch of ladydrinks.

This is definitely happening simply due to demographics. Thai women are popping out less than two kids each as opposed to 5 or 6 thirty years ago.

 

There is also the online dating scene, where the younger and prettier ones prefer to solicit rather than sit in a bar for eight hours.

 

I am feeling less positive about the economic future of Thailand. Not only are the demographics working heavily against them now, as way fewer young people are in the population as a percentage of the population. Plus very strong competition from Vietnam, a land where the mindset is study and work to get rich, a very young demographic due to a massive boost in babies after the Vietnamese war, and huge foreign investment, from memory now about 5 to 6 times the level that Thailand is receiving.

 

But I digress.

Just curious, but do you also object to sex workers in your home country doing what they do?

 

It has been said before, but is the only difference between a wife/gf who expects her husband/bf to pay for everything and a prostitute simply the number of customers she prefers to service?

My mother and grandmothers on both sides were prostitutes?  Gee the family will be surprised.

average of 6.6 drink a night, hardly the recipe to get one stoned drunk.

Not you, maybe. There's a difference between most Western and Thai body masses, also most Asians don't have the gene that enables people of Scandinavian descent to detoxify alcohol. Asians are not called two-pot screamers for no reason. 6.6 drinks would be more than enough for a 45 kg bar girl.

How many lady drinks actually contain alcohol ?

In possible to get that much money ,
