Dejavu Sauna Ladprao 122 (3rd visit)

Dejavu Sauna Ladprao 122 (3rd visit)

Thursday, 26.12.2013

Arrive 9:30 pm. There is a note at reception: Staff Naked Party 9-11 pm. On the event calendar behind reception, I can see it’s a regular event. That means those with a bow tie are staff and start the activities, then customers join in? Fuck show is in progress, two couples near the bar. Other customers can stand around in a circle.

About 10, the crowd dissolves and about ten minutes later activities continue upstairs. Customers can stand in a half circle, many cannot see what’s going on. Those who know gathered before activity starts to get a good vantage point. About 10:30, crowd dissolves. About ten minutes later, activity continues elsewhere, this time up to four couples. Customers who participate get stamps on their arm.

About 11, everything is over and customers are in labyrinth and rooms (It looks like all rooms are occupied, exept for those few with broken light and broken door). There were about 50 customers watching the show and about 20 elsewhere in the sauna, today I am the only Farang.

I leave 11:30, it’s still busy. Some more observations: area in front of Jacuzzi and the steam room have a drainage problem, there is water a few millimeters high standing there (I hate this feeling of cold water on the floor, has been like this all visits). Today, showers have a draining problem too: water a few centimeters high. There is only cold water (and in winter in Bangkok it can be unpleasant to shower with cold water).

Update Thursday 13.03.2014

Visit 21:05 – 22:45. Everything as previously reported, staff naked party starts about 21:30 and is still going when I leave. About 100 customers, among them about 5 Farang, 4 with glasses (ChristianPFC included), 1 with basecap. Free alcohol and coke at the bar.

Many customers seem to be regulars, they know that the action moves from place A to B to C and gather there before it starts to get a good viewpoint.

Mask Naked Party every first and third Tuesday of the month in Dejavu and every first and third Friday of the month in Cruising Sauna (you will certainly not find me on these dates, mask are the ultimate turn off).

New laser system in DJ station

Thursday, 26.12.2013

Entry in DJ station is 300 Baht with two drinks, but it's a normal weekday crowd, I don't know why they charge weekend prices.

The laser system is not that new, I first noticed it on 02.09.2013, but a visit yesterday prompted me to post some pictures :

I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw it. Normally I am not a fan of light effects, I prefer white light so I can see better.

How not to seduce straight boys

How not to seduce straight boys

In September, I came across a group of cute boys (i.e. young men) in a public park in Sathorn, we had a chat and exchanged phone number with M (the cutest in the group). Sathorn is too far away to get anyone into my room, so I let it rest until December, when a friend stayed in Sathorn and we could go to his room. (All conversation with my friend in German, with the boys in Thai.)

Sunday 22.12.2013
I call M. He is free and we can meet. However he cannot come to the park, I have to pick him up in his soi. He is with a friend. I invite them to go swimming in the hotel’s pool. They agree, but first we have to push a street food cart along the soi (more than a kilometer), then we sit there, one boy sells food, the other boy chats with me. Finally both are free, we get into a taxi to my friend’s hotel. Time between meeting the boys and arrive in hotel about 2 hours! It was not urgent, but shows how much time you can spend and get nowhere.

I go to the bathroom and change into underwear (to use as swimwear), then I give the two boys (M and D) underwear (from my vast collection) and send them to the bathroom to change, they reappear fully dressed. We get them to take off their shirts, while I am just in underwear. We go to the pool, I swim a few rounds and finally the boys take off their shorts and are there in the underwear I provided for them as swimwear. An amazing achievement! It’s a bit cold for me, and for them it is very cold, so one just has a few leaps and the other one doesn’t even get into the water.

We go back to the room. I shower, and my friend gets the boys into the bathroom, wrapped in towel. I try to entice them join me in the shower, no way. (Even for me a treat, as I have only cold water in my room.) When I leave the bathroom, I see them shower in underwear. I go to 7/11 to get beer and chips/crisps. In my absence, my friend tried to get the boys to sit on the bed, no way. When I come back they sit at the table. We start drinking, eating and chatting. They appreciate the beer, the chips/crisps and the chocolate my friend brought from Germany. Very carefully, I ask about sexual orientation. Both like girls. I tell them my friend likes boys, but we quickly change the subject. The cute boy M was talkative outside, but now plays with his mobile phone. The not so cute boy D was quiet outside, but is chatty now. We conclude that this won’t lead anywhere, so we say goodbye and I see the boys off at a taxi and give them money for taxi.

Nothing happened, but we set the stage for more. My friend is German and he has decades of experience (in Germany, Thailand, and to a lesser extend elsewhere) of seducing straight boys into sex. After our interaction (drinking beer, eating chocolate and chips/crisps, I translate German/Thai), he asked me (my translation, exaggerated for dramatic effect): “Are you naturally stupid and awkward or are you trying to scare the boys away?”

That was referring to me opening the curtain (to let light in, but Thai boys are shy, so the curtain has to be closed so nobody can look inside), and buying two bottles of beer for the two boys (my friend and I don’t drink, but his objections was that there will be an interruption after these two bottles are empty, whereas my line of thought was that we can easily get more from 7/11). And earlier this year, when I stood with a boy in the parking area in bright light so my friend could see us from his room (but so could everyone else in Malaysia). That means those who never met me, but judged from my post that I am doing something wrong, are right! And I am too gingerly in discussing matters of sexual nature. Once we have established that I like boys, I take a step back and discuss general matters. My friend would continue the conversation (who has the biggest dick, how often do you wank/fuck your girlfriend, and so on).

Monday 23.12.2013
Short chat with M: it was fun and we can meet again on Wednesday. My German friend instructs me to bring only one boy, it will not work if there are two of them. His intention is to show porn, talk about sex, get a bottle of beer into the boy, ask is he is horny, stroke his leg.

Wednesday 25.12.2013
After work, go to my friend’s hotel room. We sift through a pile of porn I brought, takes about one hour. The best would porn with a woman who starts undressing. Gay porn with fucking is a no-no (another friend told me this as well, it will seriously disturb straight boys), and gay porn with wanking and kissing and sucking might be acceptable. I need to get some straight porn, with women undressing and shaking their boobs!!

Call M again, meet in his soi at 20:30. He comes with D (the boy from last time) and another cute boy C joins soon. We chat and walk around, finally I am told to wait with D, and after a few minutes, M and C come back on a motorcycle and tell me to get into a taxi with D. Nonono, I can bring only one boy, M. M does not want to go alone. We discuss all for some minutes, them M tells me to call my friend to ask if I can bring several boys. I call, and my friend tells me again: it will not work in a group, one boy or nobody. I stress again that we have beer, food, he can play internet, we can chat, but only one boy. M finally draws a conclusion between my friend’s preference for Thai boys and says that he cannot go because he likes girls. When they ask me I say I like boys and girls, but point out that my role is merely that of a translator (and I think they believe me).

I tell M that my friend is very generous. It doesn’t get me any further. We are in a dead end, just minutes away from exhausting discussion of all possibilities and returning alone. But you never know, if you say what you want you might get it. So I whisper to M that my friend would like to wank with him and would pay 300 Baht. The other two boys understand part of it, so they ask me to repeat and everyone breaks out in laughter. (The entire conversation takes place near a traffic light and telephone booth, in public, with people passing just meters away.) M vehemently refuses this idea (finally crossing his arms in front of his face saying “ban”), he even claims to have a girlfriend (according to information from elsewhere, he has not). Each of the boys suggests one of the other two go with me.

After some more discussion (with alternatives, but none of them would have me end up with M alone), I ask C if it is his motorbike he is sitting on and if he can give me a ride back. Yes. Yes. So I say goodbye and get on the motorbike. There is no grip behind the seat, I have nothing to hold on to. I try to put my arm around C’s body, but he doesn’t like it and tells me to put my hand on my knee (unlike a straight moneyboy I Pattaya whom I met a Bali Hai pier, who stroked my hand when we were driving on his motorbike). So I sit there without any support, my hand on my knee, but ready to move my arm around his body to hold onto him should it be necessary.

We arrive at the hotel, I ask him if he wants to come up for chat, drink, eat, internet: no. I offer him 300 Baht on my friend’s behalf for wanking: no. So I say goodbye (I was prepared to tip him 50 Baht for driving, but he was gone before I could get out my wallet).

Back 21:20. The whole interaction (including ride back) with the boys lasted 20:30 to 21:20, and I am exhausted, but a good practice for Thai.

According to my friend, the mistake was to start with a group, and then single out one boy who can come with me. It has to come across as a special offer that I am making only to M, the best would be without anyone else knowing where he is going. That might be difficult, because when I called him on the phone there was noise in the background that suggested he is in a group with friends/family.

However, I managed to put all blame on my friend (and I told him so), they believe my only involvement is as a translator (but surely I have a serious sexual interest in M and C, but they don’t know yet!). So I can stay in contact, meet again for just drinking, eating and talking, be generous, and let the idea (300 Baht for wanking with a friend of mine) work in their head.

An interesting sidenote: on Sunday, out of the blue M asked if I know Sanam Luang and then said (my translation): “Sanam Luang Chak Wao (Thai slang for wanking) 500 Baht”, but I didn’t inquire for details.

On Wednesday again, out of the blue, M asked if we would wank in my friend’s hotel room. I didn’t ask him to elaborate, but thought that this could be easier than thought (i.e. we can skip all the seduction and go right to “how much?”.

And the boys wanted me to take them to Talad Klong Lot (near to Sanam Luang and Saranrom), and said something about girls (I didn’t understand what exactly). 

A thought that crossed my mind that we consider it as a success to pay money for a straight boy for sex, whereas they see it as a defeat to get money in exchange for sex. When I finally get the boy into bed, I will proudly tell all my friends about it. He will not go home and proudly wave the 300 Baht in his friends’ face and tell them that all he had to do is to wank with me. By my standards, there is nothing wrong with buying sex or selling sex. But in general, it seems to be more acceptable to buy sex than to sell sex.

Different boys, different area:

“There is no second chance for a first impression.” I used this approach in my area. There is one boy who is an absolute stunner, and there are several boys who I wouldn’t mind to take home. In spring, I asked one of the “wouldn’t mind” boys (name Dom) for his phone number and if wants to study English and Thai with me. It didn’t lead anywhere, but the other boys draw a connection between my homosexuality and my interest in Dom. And just last week, I was passing them playing football and out of the blue one shouted “Dom love Christian” over to me. Meanwhile, the absolute stunner is ignorant of my lust for him, so I can try a different approach with him (studying English and Thai will not work).

Little activitiy around Saranrom 24.12.2013

Little activitiy around Saranrom 24.12.2013

Tuesday, 24.12.2013

Meet a friend for dinner near Khao San, then stroll along Talad Klong Lot to Saranrom. Still barbed wire around Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Interior (road in front of it completely blocked and a banner with a new name in front of the ministry).

Arrive at Saranrom 21:45. Very slow business. One round complete about 22:30, it’s getting better. Continue. 23:15, I estimate that it won’t get much busier tonight, so I say goodbye to my friend and wait for bus home at Sanam Luang.

This night, there were only about 30 boys (on a normal day there would be twice as many, on a good day three times as many), we saw one boy getting into a car with a customer (and he was back half an hour later).

A strange way to spend Christmas.

My friend pointed out that the taxi drivers witness all the negotiation, something I haven’t thought about. Next time I will count how many customers are in their own car and how many come by taxi.

Gac fruit juice

Gac fruit juice

This fruit is a niche product, you don’t see it on regular markets.

In Thai it’s ฟักข้าว (fák kâao, squash ; gourd (family of vegetables) + rice (As rice is the staple of the Thai diet, ข้าว is often used to refer to food or meals in a general sense too.))

The label says น้ำฟักข้าว 100% / ผสมเสาวรส / คุณอรัญญา (gac fruit juice 100% / mixed with passion fruit / Khun Aranya (name of producer?))

It costs 25 Baht per bottle and the taste is reminiscent of carrot juice.

Pattaya-Jomtien Un-Plugged Magazine

In November, I noticed this magazine (first and second Edition) at Foodmart Thappraya. It's a satire magazine, and I find it funny.

Dejavu Sauna Ladprao 122 (2nd visit)

Dejavu Sauna Ladprao 122

Thursday 19.12.2013 (my second visit)

I visited a friend in Ladprao and after that was not in the mood for sex. Dejavu is in walking distance, so I pop in again for a mere confirmation of findings from my previous visit (see separate post), which was a disappointment. Not so this time!

Arrive 21:45. From the reception, I can hear sounds that I associated with sexual activity. In the locker room, it gets louder, and then at bar, I see what is going on: they have a sex show, with about 50 customers watching (standing/sitting around). I join the crowd. There are two couples fucking or sucking each other, with some interaction with the audience. Two members of staff (?) have a flashlight to illuminate, so overall lighting is ok for me. One of the performers has a great body. You can sit or stand a meter away, and everything is genuine.

I don’t know if this is a regular event on Thursdays, it’s not advertised anywhere I know, but on my previous visit on a Wednesday staff told me that Thursday 9:30 is a good time (many customers) to come to the sauna.

The show ends about 22:00 and the crowd dissipates. I check the gym on ground floor (=first floor), there are announcements for special events like this:

Orgy Zone
Dejavu                             (my translation and explanation in italic)
โซนของคนชอบโชว์             (zone for people who like show)
9,23,30 มี.ค.56                  (9,23,30 March 2013, these dates are Saturday)
6,27 เม.ย.56                      (6, 27 April 2013, these dates are Saturday)
ทุกคู่ที่เอากันไน Orgy zone    (every couple that has sex in public in the orgy zone)
รับบัตร VIP เที่ยวฟรี 5 วัน       (receives a card for five times free entry)

(I didn’t know that I would soon qualify!)

I proceed to second floor: the area of second floor is smaller because the locker room in ground floor has an atrium which is two stories high.

I continue to third floor and I find another show is going on (the cute boy is there again). It’s next to a wall, so audience cannot stand around (like on ground floor), it is pretty crowded and many have to stretch their neck and still can’t see what’s going on. I have an advantage because I am taller than the average Thai. There is interaction amongst the audience as well, I get groped several times. The show ends, and the cute boy comes to me, smiles at me and puts his hand on my knee. I return the favor, he takes my hand and leads me upstairs, where another show is going on.

He pushes my head down, so I suck him and then he fucks me in various positions, with staff illuminating our activities and about 50 other customers are watching (us and another couple having intercourse as well). Fortunately, I am not shy: I am lying on my back, getting fucked, and when I look up, there are five standing next to me, loocking down on me, one trying to shove his dick in my mouth. Finally, cumshot on my abdomen. I would call this an interactive fuck show, I guess the sauna hires two couples and others can join. And it’s real! (Unlike Soi Twilight Fuck shows, which I find boring, and the cock rings are a total turn off.) A member of staff stamps my arm with a rubber stamp and tells me I can get a card for five times free entry at reception.

The cute boy and I exchange a few sentences (his English is limited, so we speak Thai), shower and go to the locker room to exchange phone numbers. The cute boy leaves, I go on another round. Still plenty of customers (50 estimated) and activities in labyrinth and rooms. I leave 23:15.

Clientele: I guess age mainly 25 to 40, there were at least 50 customers at any given time I was there. Apart from the cute boy, one or two others might qualify for free sex with me. The vast majority is not slim enough (my standards regarding body shape are quite strict). I saw one other Farang.

While my first visit was a disappointment, this visit clearly asks for coming back, and trying Cruising Sauna as well.
