Thai Ladyboy Escort; whilst ladyboys are much more common in Thailand than in the West, or at least they are much more visible, that doesn’t mean that Thai society is completely welcoming of ladyboy escorts. There is still a slight stigma attached to being a transsexual even outside the pay for pleasure scene, and it is not unusual that a Thai ladyboy will keep her sexuality secret from her parents. For the most part though, a Thai family will typically be much more accepting of a ladyboy son than a typical Western family would be.
A much cheaper option to paying an escort is to arrange a meeting with a ladyboy that you meet on an online dating site. Thaifriendly.com is a huge online dating site and it has a specific section catering for people wanting to meet ladyboys. If you would like to meet a ladyboy for something casual, or for something more long-term, I recommend you try online dating.
The price that you will need to pay Thai ladyboy escorts for companionship is extortionately high and I advise you not to pay it. There is no need because you can either go the online route and find someone for free on Thaifriendly.com, or you can easily meet someone in a bar.
The price that you need to pay for entertainment, assuming you meet a working ladyboy in a bar or on the street, is similar to what you would need to pay a working girl. It all depends on the ladyboy and where you meet. Again, as with girls, Pattaya ladyboy prices are cheaper than elsewhere in Thailand. Short-time appointments cost anywhere from 700 baht to 2,000 baht and an overnight appointment will typically cost anything from 1,000 to 3,000 baht.
As with the ladies that you will meet in Pattaya, the ladyboys here are just as divergent in terms of which part of Thailand they originate from and how well they speak English.

As with lady escorts, the really unique selling point with Thai ladyboy escorts is their discretion. If you would feel in any way uncomfortable about meeting someone in a bar or on a ladyboy dating site, you can make a simple appointment online and arrange for someone to come and meet you at a place of your choice. One possible additional bonus, if you struggle to spot the ladyboys from the girls, is that you'll know upfront exactly what you are dealing with!
You shouldn't have any trouble finding a Thai ladyboy in a bar though. At one time the bars in the red-light areas usually employed both girls and ladyboys. These days the bars tend to employ either all ladyboys or all girls... which makes things a bit simpler if you sometimes struggle to spot one from another.
There is a greater risk factor involved with ladyboys compared to girls in terms of being drugged, robbed and so on. Another selling point for Thai ladyboy escorts is that you should be completely safe if you use an agency.
The local news in Pattaya seems to report a more than proportionate incidence of trouble between tourists and ladyboys compared to tourists and bar-girls. My advice here is the same as it is with girls... stick with companions that you meet at their workplace (or via an agency). If anything goes wrong, you’ll know where to go to register a complaint or, if the situation calls for it, where to direct the police. Because you have this capability, you’re much less likely to have any trouble in the first place compared to what might happen with someone you met on the street.
One big difference between ladyboys and girls is that, whilst a girl may
have resorted to working in a bar because she has gone through a failed
marriage and needs an income to support her children; this is obviously
not the case with ladyboys. It follows that there might be more
ladyboys that are working out of choice rather than a desperate need for
That said, Thai culture holds that the female children need to take care of their parents and when a son becomes a ladyboy, he also assumes that female responsibility, which means that he may still have reluctantly resorted to prostitution as a means of earning the necessary cash. Prostitution may also have been necessary bearing in mind that ladyboys are excluded from many jobs, especially in the public sector.
A Thai ladyboy escort can earn a lot of money by Thai standards, so that might well be the only reason for their choice of work. Ladyboys in general do seem to have a particularly bad reputation for promiscuity though!
As mentioned above, the online dating option is a much cheaper option than paying for an escort, and it offers you the chance to make contact with lots of ladyboys from a distance. By the time you get to Thailand, you can easily have lots of dates set up for free!
Thaifriendly.com is my recommended ladyboy dating site. It allows you to set up a free account and even use some facilities for free. You will know whether or not this site will be of any use to you well before you need to pay any cash to upgrade your account.
