Once in a while a real beauty will work in a Pattaya BJ bar but most of the best lookers are working in go go bars where they can make big bucks. Golden Girl had a long history on the street before it shuttered in Two other bars on the street called The Pump Station 1 and The Pump Station 2 operate in similar fashion though they have more women on staff.
They charge Baht for oral in private rooms above the bars. Neither of those bars operate like the original Pump Station which had a bar with curtained covered cutouts underneath so customers could get blown while imbibing their beers! The women are mainly in their twenties and although they always bring it up immediately like their counterparts at Wood Bar they do offer oral services in private rooms upstairs for Baht.
The price is typically Baht. At My Friend You and Click Bar the services are rendered on couches inside the bar that are only surrounded by flimsy curtains. At King Kong the action takes place in a private room accessed through a secret door in the wall. Customers who want service in a private room above any of these bars have to pay an additional to Baht for the privilege though that also usually includes full service as a matter of course.
The women on staff wear uniforms like the ladies in Bangkok and offer oral in private rooms with reclining chairs upstairs for Baht.
There is also a large bar and a pool table inside the bar that only occasionally gets some use. They have locked doors so customers have to ring a bell to gain entry. Once inside every customer who enters or leaves is greeted in unison by the women on staff. When a customer buys a lady drink the women they buy the drink for drops her top and gives the customer access to her breasts. Bliss Lounge on Third Road is a blowjob bar in a converted restaurant.
Because of that it looks very nice inside with well decorated walls, a big bar and a quality pool table. The women on staff wait for customers in front of the shop and offer oral services in private booths upstairs for Baht. These clubs are staffed by attractive women who usually wear uniforms of some kind. They are clean and modern and have big bars and lots of semi-private booths.
They also have private rooms upstairs. The front doors remained locked until customers rings buzzers to be let inside. That allows for all sorts of activities to happen right on the main floor. Prices are usually Baht for oral on the ground floor or for more private action upstairs.
At one point there were only two bars of this type on Soi Full Inn. Tipping at Thai blowjob bars is not expected but some customers do hand over extra cash whenever they feel it is deserved. Hong Kong has plenty of prostitution that ranges from the legal to the gray market and beyond but there is only one blowjob bar in the territory. The service is meant as a teaser to get customers to take women out of the bar at exorbitant prices though customers who request it can be finished off by mouth right in their bench for a negotiated rate.
The day of the blowjob bar seems to have passed in the Philippines. Customers will still occasionally get oral service inside a go go bar on the Walking Street portion of Fields Avenue but it is much more common further up on Perimeter Road.
Even there the service is never a sure thing. Increasingly common bar raids probably has a lot to do with that. In Vietnam blowjob barbershops are much more common.
Although there are some adult oriented cafes including a few where the staff offers oral to customers the blowjob barbershops locally refered to as hot toc om or cat toc om are much more common. To be clear, not all barbershops in the country offer oral relief.
Most do not even if they have good looking women working in them. Some are legitimate hair salons, some are hand job shops, and some are just places local guys go for eye candy while getting a trim or an ear cleaning. The salons that offer oral range in scope. Some employ only one or two middle aged lady in pajamas. Others are staffed by dozens of skilled and attractive women in their early twenties. All blowjob barbershops follow a similar model. Customers walk inside and select one of the available women on staff.
They then walk to one of several private booths or rooms with a massage table and a sink. After the session completes the customers get dressed and head back to the front where they pay their tab. The customers are also expected to tip their service providers.
Most give an amount equal to the house fee though some will give more. The blowjob barbershops are completely oriented to local guys but they all accept foreign customers too.
The women on staff rarely if ever speak any language other than Vietnamese. The popular Thien Phu is no longer in operation. At one point in the not so distant past there were a few bars in Phnom Penh where oral services were offered at incredibly low rates. Those bars have all been closed for years now but they were so legendary that they are still talked about today. All in all the country is still very conservative. Customers occasionally receive hand or blowjobs in hostess bars or karaoke parlors but it is rare.
There are definitely no specialized suck shops around even if there may be one or two bars with a special room in the back that gets occasional use. There are no blow job bars in Indonesia but there is a large and vibrant commercial sex industry. While most of the prostitution in Jakarta is aimed at locals, the infamous Blok M is full of bars that are mostly patronized by westerners.
Or it could be because there is a semi-secret room in the back. In that room and even in some dark corners of the bar some of the older women will occasionally perform hand or oral service for customers willing to pay.
Public oral service is also sometimes offered in some of the bigger sex clubs when guys tip big money or buy a lot of lady drinks for dancers. Legend has it that all blowjob bars can trace their heritage back the the pink salons of Japan but further research would be required to confirm that. Apparently this too is a part of not being labeled an adult shop or at least shows that there are no knocking rooms inside.
Most pink salons play cheesy music but at a level much lower than the average night club. People in Japan are generally very polite and privacy minded. Pink salons are pretty straight forward and all operate on the same model. Customers walk in, pay a set fee to a manager at a front desk, then get led to one of several restaurant style booths in a dimly lit shop.
After waiting for a while in their booths the customers are greeted by their service provider. After a bit of small talk customers are asked to take their pants off. After that they go to work delivering the oral services they specialize in. Some service providers go the extra mile and allow customers to touch them all over or even get into the 69 position and do mutual oral sex but for the most part straightforward head is the norm.
As an example of this a lot of shops will offer specials like 2 girls sucking for the price of one or buy one BJ get one free. Some shops even have point cards. After customers come ten times they show their point card and cum again free.
Some of the cut-rate places will have lines literally out the door when they offer big discounts, as odd as that may sound. Although they mostly look and operate in the same way the different such shops in Japan have different setups. Some have themes and accompanying uniforms.
Some employ beautiful young women. Some employ housewives and some employ anyone they can get. Although pink salons are all over the place only a select few are open to foreigners. Rumor has it that with pink salons it is because they are mostly owned by people who happen to have a thing against people from other countries.
As with anything else in Japan tipping is not expected at the pink salons. There is no specific blowjob bar scene to speak of in South Korea. South Korea does have its own unique type of shop called a lip cafe however. These shops are technically a form of kiss bang where customers are supposed to pay a set fee to make out with an attractive woman who is usually still in university.
At some kiss rooms individual women occasionally offer oral sex to customers for an extra fee. At the lip cafes oral sex is basically a given and all the women on staff offer it. The lip bangs are somewhat underground and mostly rely on the internet to advertise.
They rarely post their locations publicly, instead preferring to have customers contact them with smartphone chat apps like the local favorite Kakaotalk. That way they can screen customers and go meet them in person in a public street before leading them to their shops.
All of the blowjob bars in the world are concentrated in Asia. This gives credence to the tales about all suck saloons originating with the Japanese pink salon model.
But back in a lot of stories started appearing in the press about plans to open a pickle polishing coffee shop in the Swiss capital city of Geneva. According to these reports the place was set to have women available for selection who would blow customers while they enjoyed their cup of joe.
The ambitions of the people who wanted to open their cock sucking cafe were quickly scuttled however. Not long after the initial reports emerged word came that the place would run afoul of rules against pimping. Of course no Swiss fellatio cafe ever came into being.
