About a month ago, I noticed a video on YouTube titled, “What I learned from Thai Prostitutes.” Always curious, I watched the four minute video.
Although the video was uploaded more than three years ago, comments are still being posted, and as of today, there are over 210,000 views and more than
Personally, I think the guy's a complete tool. Simon claims to have learned four lessons from Thai prostitutes but if it took him flying to Thailand and interacting with Thai prostitutes to learn these four lessons, I can only imagine the garbage he's pushing in his seminars.
Stupid Quote #1
"Prostitution is like, everywhere. You can’t walk down the street anywhere without some Thai girl running up to you saying, “Massage, massage."
When I first came to Thailand, I lived and worked in a large, expensive apartment on Sukhumvit Soi 1. The place was a total party pad and in an area within walking distance of Nana Plaza. Numerous working girls lived in the area and while plenty of them asked if I wanted to go with them, not one ever asked if I would like a massage.
I drove my motorcycle all over Udonthani, a city where I lived for about six months, and where many women want to hook-up with foreigners. Despite my telling them I had a girlfriend, mothers frequently asked if I wanted to meet or even marry their daughter, but unfortunately, not once did a sweet, attractive farm girl run up begging to give me a massage.
Stupid Quote #2
“They know exactly who they’re going after, and that is, rich, white men. You could see them go after the white men, dressed in the nicest clothes, and like, attack.”
Stupid Quote #3
Lesson #1 - "They really know who to go after.”
Women who make their living getting men to part with their money are like living, breathing calculators. Immediately upon entering your domicile they take note; computer, big screen TV, nice furniture, nice kitchen appliances, beautiful paintings on the wall, nice clothes, nice shoes. Wow, he must be loaded. But this is not something exclusive to Thai prostitutes. Men and women alike, prostitutes or not, have a habit of admiring wealth.
First, I'm not sure prostitution such a bad thing. It depends on which side of the fence you're sitting. I personally think as long as the prostitute is not physically forced into her profession and the sex is between two consenting adults, there's nothing wrong with it.
Back to being white...
What does being white have to do with anything related to prostitutes in Thailand?
What does it have to do with freaking out more than any other race when it comes to hearing a woman ask about sex?
Are white men more sexually repressed than other races?
In order to compete with other nationalities, do I now need to ask the wife if she'll break out the whips and chains? C'mon pal, wake up and smell the Thai coffee. As they used to say here in Thailand, "Phid Khup!" You are the weakest link.
Most Thai prostitutes do not discriminate. They may say they do, but the truth is a different story. Get them behind closed doors, throw enough cash at them, and they’re on that pickle like a 600-pound fat chick on a stack of Big Macs after a month long lock down at a fat farm.
Very few Thai prostitutes deny customers. I’ll grant you, some would rather be poor than sleep with a man they find repulsive, can’t blame em, but most think about the bottom line.
To say Thai prostitutes mainly go after rich, white men is both uninformed and incorrect. In Thailand, the hookers mainly sleep with Thai men. Some like, even prefer rich Japanese and Koreans and some have been known to take money from rich and not-so-rich Chinese, Middle Easterners, and even Nigerians and Indians. Let’s not forget Malaysians, Laotians, Singaporeans, Cambodians, and any other nationality where men come with penises.
If someone is rich enough to throw a tidy sum of cash in front of a prostitute, it’s on like Donkey Kong. In most cases that goes for fat, skinny, dark, light, tall, or short customers. Discrimination generally takes a back seat to money.
“Now, they don’t say do you want sex. They say, do you want a massage? Because I’m sure they know, if they came up and said, “do you want sex,” most, especially white men, would be a little bit freaked out by that because they wouldn’t want to seem like they’re doing something bad.”
Forgive my lack of subtlety but the above paragraph demonstrates your ignorance.
Freaked out? Really? Where have you been living, under a rock? Men (and women) from all over the world come to Thailand, sometimes just for sex. I seriously doubt a guy would be freaked out if an attractive woman walked up and asked if he wanted to have sex with her.
Also, more than a few Thai prostitutes have absolutely no problem asking if you want a blowjob or want to fuck. Why would they be shy asking if you would like to have sex?
I have never, ever had a woman walk up to me and ask if I want a massage. I have had women ask, “You want I go with you?” or tell me “I want fuck you,” but in all my time living here, never has a woman on the street walked up and asked if I wanted a massage.
Lesson #2: Use language that resonates with the people you are speaking to.
“Those women that were really bold, I mean, like stand in oncoming traffic and talk to everybody they could, I watched them get a lot more business than those who didn’t."
Lesson #3 - The more willing you are to put yourself out there, and to share with everyone that you think is your perfect tribe member what you do, you’re more likely to get the business.
"These women were so sweet, and so charming, and so just like friendly…and it does make you want to go home with one of them...to be honest. Because, they were so welcoming, and warm, and friendly."
Lesson #4: The more you can get into that space, and being so sweet, and open, and friendly in your business, the more likely people are to say yes to you.
"You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar," said Mom. My mother taught me this when I was 5 or 6 years old!
“Think of Thailand and its' culture as an onion for it has many layers. Unlike an onion though, learning about a country takes a lifetime and the layers are never-ending. With an onion, the layers eventually end when you reach the middle. ”
Maxie has yet to peel away the outer layer of the onion.
“I didn’t do business with the Thai prostitutes.”
