In Europe, what city is closest to "Bangkok" in terms of providers?

no city in Europe compares to Bangkok - that’s in a league of its own.  If someone is looking for that type experience, they will be disappointed.  

the best overall European cities for providers imo are Barcelona & Madrid, lots of options & reasonable rates.  London is there too, but with rates generally higher than Spain.

in Bangkok, there is sex available in almost every context - massage shops (most with extras), gogo bars (where is the business model is to take guys off-site), saunas (not rentboy saunas) host bars, & dozens of providers available online through various sites.

no other city has all those options - not even close imo

Where there's pretty much a plenty, and laws against it is not really enforced?

Madrid and Barcelona by far!

Legal, reasonably priced, plenty of choices to meet guys in brothels, bars, cruising areas (Montjuic), etc. Obviously the younger and in better shape you're the more likely to get it for free but we're on this site for a reason.

I agree about Madrid and Barcelona being the closest to Bangkok in that respect. Never been to London. However, I've never experienced negative attitude in Bangkok, whereas in Spain I did. Had fun anyway, but some providers could do better if they lose their overinflated ego. Just my experience, my opinion, not law.

There are good and bad hires in all markets. 

Overinflated ego sometimes is in the eyes of the beholder (client).

agree there was no attitude whatsoever in Bangkok - although the sex is often not totally straightforward.  In the massage shops, I think it can be very hit or miss, depending on the shop & the “therapist”.  

never experienced attitudes in Spain and many different experiences over the years - while they don’t have the venues as in Bangkok, it’s a very straightforward transaction w providers in that you know what you’re going to get.  And then there is Thermas in BCN, which has been written about extensively in other threads.

What's the rate in Bangkok  for providers like since there's a bunch of them? Is it still like around $300 USD?

$300 is a very high rate in Bangkok.  But, it depends on where you source providers.  RM of course will have the highest rates & only a couple foreigners (Americans) there asking $300.  Most on RM are $120-$200.  On other apps, the average is more like $65 -$100.  I typically don’t like to source from the “apps”, but in Bangkok that’s how it’s done, especially on Hornet.
In the massage shops it’s even less, but then you’re dealing with a charge for a “massage” and either a minimum tip or whatever you negotiate. The most straightforward massage shop I found was Arena - Silom adjacent.  

The real difference in Bangkok re; rates is if you’re paying for an hour or two of sex or a massage with some sex.

Thanks! Very insightful. How were the guys on Hornet when you used it there? I'm not expecting RM caliber, but wondering if they would still appeal to a lot of people from this forum.

you can't compare a 5th world country to Europe. 

Spaniards of all regions tend to be very handsome and to the point, no beating around the bush. Many guys who escort in Spain are from Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, etc. 

I had great times picking guys at Adonis near the Plaza Mayor

Exactly, there are some Eastern European guys in Bangkok but they're the minority and usually available for higher rates in RM.

This depiction of Bangkok as Heaven on Earth simply because of price is unrealistic. 

Take a look at the Bangkok page in RM!

Have you been to Bangkok ?

It's more about access and attitude in Bangkok.

Their culture lacks the influence of the Catholic church which makes sex a shameful act. Homosexuality is also not considered "wrong". All this makes for an open and comfortable.marketplace when searching for a sexual companion.

there were more Brazilians & Americans on RM in BKK than Eastern Europeans- not even close.  There may be some difference depending on exact timing.  There are a lot of Russians in Thailand but seemed to be more in Pattaya.

doesn’t sound like you’ve been to Bangkok recently, if ever - lots of ultra luxury condo towers built & more under construction.  The skyline is full of skyscrapers & really beautiful.  Brand new shopping malls that make malls in the US look small & tired.  Many luxury hotels & fine restaurants.  Efficient & sparkling clean subway system & elevated rail lines. In many ways very sophisticated & modern - but of course this was in the core city and I didn’t see outlying areas.  And it’s pretty much completely safe.  

Bangkok is the playground for rich Japanese, Chinese, Indians, Thais & more.  It has everything anyone could want.

I know, I just checked the RM page. Thanks for the correction! 

I was there in the 90's. The world was different! 

For a moment I thought you were going to say you live there now and own a 5 stars hotel 😃 hard to keep up!

100% true. Thai culture seems to have very little issue w gender either, thus the very visible ladyboy & trans presence in Bangkok.  And the overall acceptance seems to include paid companions as well.   I’ve never seen that degree of acceptance anywhere else.  Once that feeling is understood by a visitor, then you are free to relax and really enjoy on a different level.

Wow. That's a pretty myopic explanation -- euro-centric as well as a huge stretch of cultural extrapolation!😂

It's not the absence of Catholicism. It's the Buddhism,

Historically as well as today, Buddhists practice tolerance and understanding in matters of sexual relations. Just start there when trying to explain "access and attitude."

this is a more accurate way to make the point - yes.

It could also be the absence of Catholicism/Christianity since Thailand  was the only country in the region that avoided European colonization

Potato / Potatoe

I am speaking to an audience that's primarily American so lots of members here who suffered the anxiety of Catholic guilt about sex.

Catholic? Why not evangelical or extreme Baptist? Mormon in minor scale although they keep growing in numbers.

Not turning this into a religious discussion but we forget about other religion were folks like you and I are thrown out of business and despite that so many gorgeous guys are available in Dubai.
