Tips To Enjoy Lap Dances in Bangkok

If this is your first time, then here are some tips to enhance your lap dance experience in Bangkok:


1. Discuss the Price

Make it a rule to confirm the price before getting any service in Bangkok – lap dance included. If you don’t, then it’s pretty much like voluntarily walking into a scam.

The stripper would charge you an exorbitant amount that’d instantly make you regret your life.

And similar to the strip clubs in the West, some strippers might even ask you to buy them drinks in exchange for a lap dance.

So once again, verify the prices of those drinks otherwise you’re likely to get overcharged.


2. Ask the Duration

The duration of a lap dance is calculated by the number of songs.

An average song would last about 3 minutes, so if you’re paying around ฿500-฿800 then expect over 6 minutes or about 2 songs.

However, the twist here is that there’s another scam you need to watch out for.

Sometimes the length of the songs can be small and you’d hardly get a 3 min lap dance from them.

On the other hand, some songs be unusually long and the stripper might try overcharging you for those as well.

This is the reason clear communication is important inside strip clubs in Thailand. Not only do you have to confirm the price, but also verify the duration of the lap dance.


3. Don’t Pay in Advance

Paying in advance is probably the biggest mistake you can make. Once the stripper gets her money, most of the time she would half-ass her job.

And the experience you’d get would also be pretty mediocre because she doesn’t have the motivation to please you anymore.

So pay her only after she’s done performing the lap dance. Although you can still tip her during the performance, especially if she’s doing an exceptional job.


4. Bring Change

Bring at least ฿3,000 and get the change beforehand. You don’t want to fill your pockets with ฿1,000 bills unless you’re feeling generous.

If you’re giving ฿1,000 to a stripper then most of the time she’ll keep the change.

This can be a bummer because if she agreed to perform a lap dance for ฿500, then you’re essentially paying double.

And then, you have to buy drinks and tip the performers as well. That’s why a general worldwide rule when visiting strip joints is to keep some small change.


5. Protect Your Valuables

Some people get so invested in a lap dance that they completely forget about their valuables.

There are plenty of people waiting for such opportunities at these places. The moment your attention diverts, your valuables would be gone.

This happens far more frequently inside low standard strip joints, and at times, the dancers may also be involved.

So if you can’t keep your valuables in your pocket, then at least keep them in your sight.


Alternatives To Lap Dances

There are plenty of thrilling alternatives to commercial lap dances in Bangkok.

For instance, there are plenty of freelancers in Bangkok eager to go back to your hotel for a private striptease and some sex.

Just make sure to warm her up with a few drinks otherwise she might feel too shy to dance for you.
