They can still use their mouth's when the painters are in so even during that period  ( sorry sorry ) their earnings aren't that diminished .. 

Depo-Provera shots are effective birth control, are cheap and only needed every 3 months, one of the side effects is no painters !!

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.

 

 

" Less and less girls will enter the trade and many of the GoGos and other  'girlie' bars' bars will disappear.

Two other factors that may have an alternative outcome on you're theory is the vice trade has been about in this country for a long time and their laziness to go and do something else ..

Yes, and maybe even more. You have to remember, the girls have the "marvelous product," you know, the one you have, and when you sell it, you still have it. And the smart girls figure out how to best use it.

 

I know a good looking Thai lady who now owns two resorts on holiday islands, a speedboat, a luxury car and has a grand house on the mainland--all acquired through proper use of her marvelous product.  She is now in her late 30's does not have a steady man, but plays the young farangs like a drunken sailor on holiday. She spends money like an expat and always seems to have an entourage of hangarounds continually sucking off her.

 

Never underestimate what a smart girl with that amazing marvelous product can do.  There seems  to be an endless supply of dumb farangs to finance them.

Marvellous product .!  I've heard it called some things but never that .. Does that also apply to Ladyboys or will meat and two veg still do for them those .. :shock1:

Look at the number of bar girls who are now farang's wives and have houses, cars, liquid assets and other possessions including family support, housing, transportation and medical care. 

What % of the 200,000 or 400,000, I forget what was said, of the girls are you talking about?

No perks for bar girls.

Seriously? :cheesy:

 

What about getting bought out of the bar for a week or more to have a beach holiday, everything paid for, including whatever they want to eat, and in some cases whatever alcohol they want to drink. Plus, of course, the fee negotiated on top of that.

I know one that had a holiday in Germany on a temporary boyfriend.

 

Many get bought out for the duration of whichever boyfriend is in Thailand, even if they don't go to the beach etc, and they might have 2 or 3 boyfriends visiting at different times.

 

Even when just one night, they normally get dinner and breakfast.

 

seems pretty perky to me.

 

BTW, "bargirl" is a generic term for a girl that works in a place that sells alcohol and is available to go out with customers, regardless of if she works in a barbeer or a gogo.

Sorry I wasn't clear. I meant perks that a business might give like healthcare and retirement. Even girls who work in an office might get free drinks and dinners.

How many lady drinks actually contain alcohol ?

It depends on the lady and the customer. Some customers consider if they are paying 150 baht for a lady drink, then it had better contain alcohol.

Why? The customer is paying for the girl to sit with him; what is in the drink is immaterial.

Not that it's not an earner for the bars (supposed alcoholic lady drinks which do not really contain alcohol), but I think the practice is often requested by the woman receiving the drink, many of whom (but certainly not all!) do not want to get falling-over drunk with a 6-8 hour shift in front of them.  

 

Men buying drinks---whether the drinks are for women or other men--can often become belligerent and obnoxious in their desire to push others to drink alcohol. Never really understood that, but it's definitely a thing.  

 

Once, while sitting by myself in a bar I liked, in the early evening (read: I was taking it slow with the drinks), chatting with workers there I knew, some two-week millionaire comes in, very loud and "friendly" (the kind of friendly that tends to turn argumentative and even violent in the flash of an eye), and starts buying me shots of some sort of disgusting-tasting clear alcohol that he was drinking, which I can't remember the name of (something similar to Ouzo).  Not wanting to "refuse his largesse," I quietly asked the bartender, in Thai, to make my shots water, which she very discreetly and skillfully did, without the guy being any the wiser.  He got to feel important, I avoided any unpleasantness, and the bar made their profit...everybody won that night, haha.

I'd say the lips too can be a marvelous product.

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)

l agree,  as l said before some do not work just from bars, great company and escorts.

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.

 

 

Coyote dancers absolutely go with customers.
