Amongst all the Pattaya girls, the gogo girl sits at the top of the food-chain in terms of her confidence, her curves and her overall physical beauty. This is the perception at least, and in most cases (not all) it is true. To get a job in a decent gogo bar, a girl needs to pass a much more stringent physical appearance test compared to getting a job in a beer-bar. Within the working-girl fraternity, any girl that works in a gogo bar commands a certain respect for being seen as the best of the best at what they do.
For a whole host of reasons, not just their physical beauty, the gogo girls can find far more customers in a typical day than the other working girls can. People go to beer-bars for all sorts of reasons e.g. to watch football, to listen to music, to chat with friends and so on. When it comes to gogo bars, they are usually there for a very different reason!
The customers that you find in these venues are usually more hardcore 'primed' customers, and they are more likely to want the company of a girl. These customers are also more likely to want a fairly brief encounter rather than a full-on holiday romance. All this means that, for the girls working in these establishments, a different game-plan to that of the bar girl is needed if they are going to maximize their incomes. On my page about bar girls, I explained how the bar girl's financial 'game-plan' meant that the kind of service you got would likely be a very caring, girlfriend type experience. But what about girls from a gogo bar, can you expect to receive the same measure of customer care from them? Read on.
Think about it for a moment; the typical bar-girl is hoping for a long-term relationship with you and is placing her bets on being able to convince you that she is girlfriend/wife material. That's a much harder trick to pull off after dancing around, displaying all her bodily charms to anyone that cares to look at them! That being the case, you tend to get more of a short-term business type experience with a lady from a gogo bar and that is not really the sort of thing that most customers are hoping for.
Since a gogo girl can get relatively more customers in a day, and since the price is much higher.... anything from 1,500 to 2,500 baht for no more than 2-hours (this is much cheaper than in other places e.g. Bangkok) her strategy is to do just that. It is not uncommon to see a gogo girl on stage one moment, off with a customer the next, and back on stage within an hour. If you have seen a girl that you like, but she has already gone off with someone else, don't worry. You haven't lost your girl, you've just lost your turn!
These girls can easily get 2 or 3 customers per night (more during the high season from the start of December through to the end of February), so her earnings per month can easily top the 100,000 baht threshold. That is not bad money at all for Thailand. If she had previously worked in a beer-bar, she may also have built up a few overseas 'sponsors' who are sending her regular cash on top of that.
If the idea of paying for company turns you off, Thai online dating is an option you should consider. Thailovelines.com is my recommended website for this but you'll still need to understand how to get the most out of it. Understanding Thai ladies, how they think and how they feel, is not possible if you don't understand a little about their culture and their upbringing. My 'Thai Dating' section will give you all the information you need to get started the right way and, if you do not have an understanding of Thai culture, it might just save you all sorts of problems.
Part 2 continues with a look at the advantages and disadvantages of spending time with a girl from a gogo bar. I've also suggested where I think the best gogos are to be found and, if the prices involved put you off, where you can go to get a similar type of experience for much less money.
