This is a question we have asked ourselves many times over the years, “What exactly is a Thai Freelance girl and how do we understand them?
As with everything in life, there is no one answer to this question. However through our experiences, we have learned that you can break the different types of Thai freelancers into 5 categories.
Nearly all freelance Thai women will fall into one of these categories:
Type 1- The Professional
Type 2- Gold Digger
Type 3- Extra Income
Type 4- Prior to Bar
Type 5- Post Bar
Depending on where you are in Thailand, one type will be more prevalent than the other. For example, I’ve come across more type 3 freelance girls in Bangkok than I would in Koh Samui.
Or you may find many more type 4’s and 5’s in Phuket than other major cities in Thailand.
Lets get to it…
Type 1- The Professional
These will tend to be the hottest Thai girls at the club. They will dress sexy and know how to attract just enough interest so you approach.
During the beginning of the conversation they will bring up the topic of money. They will ask how much you pay for me. They will ask for the top price, ranging from 1,500 – 4,000 baht. If you try to negotiate with them, they will turn their back to you and find someone who will pay.
These girls are all business. When sex is finished, they will be fully dressed before you can even clean yourself off. They will exchange numbers with you and head out to find another client for the evening.
Welcome to the life of the professional freelancer.
Type 2- Gold Digger
These are the ones that you believe are different. You think you found a girl that is not a professional. She wants a little money for staying with you, but she is more interested in playing the role of your wife and fulfilling every need than anything else. She gives you more attention than any other woman has ever given you before. You think she might be different from all the other Thai girls you met before.
When it is time for you to go back to your home country, she says she will wait for you. She will want to talk with you every day on the phone and computer webcam, and you do just this. You MSN her over the computer, have webcam sex with her, and call her on the phone.
She tells you she needs money so she can eat and pay rent. She doesn’t want to work bar like her sister and friends, she wants to wait for you. She says she misses you and thinks about you everyday.
You send her money for the first month. Then the second, and so one.
What is really happening:
While you are talking with her on webcam, I’m on the sofa laughing. Your money is spent on fancy dinners and condoms for me. I thank you for your stupidity.
Once she hangs up with you. She calls her other 4 boyfriends who she tells the exact same thing to.
You my friend, found yourself a Thai Gold Digger.
This girl probably has more money than you do. She stores her “real” money in a second bank account that you know nothing about.
She may also have a Thai boyfriend that she supports with your money. When you come to visit for 2 weeks, she will stay with you and play the perfect wife. Then when you leave, it’s back to business as usual.
Type 3- Extra Income / Second Job / Student
These are the girls there is hope for. They have a job during the day. They go out at night either alone or with one friend. They like to drink and have fun but not to a crazy extent since they have work in the morning. If they meet a foreigner who is interested in them, they will proceed to ask for money for sex.
They will not be the most expensive, usually 500 – 1000 baht per night. After they go with you a couple of times, they will start calling you at night asking to stay with you.
Play your cards right, after a couple times of paying, you’ll never have to pay again.
These girls use freelancing as a second source of income.
Note: These girls are very easy to get for free. Just don’t be a jerk and kick up the charm. Promise them stuff like going to the movies, nice dinners, etc… If you do that right, they will never ask for money since they have there own jobs that cover basic expenses. These girls make okay girlfriends.
Type 4- Prior to Bar
Oh, my little weakness. I have and always will be a sucker for the young fresh faces. To me there is nothing more attractive than a big, bright eyed innocent looking girl. That is this type.
These girls tend to be young, no college education, and don’t speak English very well. They will have a friend who is already working freelance and is showing her the ropes.
You will meet these girls at the clubs and she will give you an innocent look and look away. She will do this a couple of times until you approach.
For the first part of the conversation her friend might have to translate.
Before you take her home, she will ask how much. You will likely pay it, she is too cute not to.
For those of you that have been to Koh Samui, think of Apple. (This part won’t make sense for everyone)
Type 5- Post Bar Girls
This is the one you thought you were saving from the slavery of the Bar. You paid 10,000 baht for her to finish working at the bar and live with you.
She stayed with you for two months as the perfect “wifee”, until high season arrives. Seeing the opportunity of many new tourists around, she gives you the ultimatum of paying her 20,000 baht a month or she will start working again at the bar. You instantly kick her to the curb.
Not wanting to return to the bar where she has to work 8 hours a day, she turns to freelance work.
All type 5 girls have similar stories. For whatever reason they stopped working the bar. Maybe they were getting too old, maybe another guy bought them out from the bar, or maybe she was tired of having to work for someone else.
Whatever the reason, these girls know that in high season they can make good money just by meeting one new man each night at the clubs. When low season come around, they will find a foreigner who is living in Thailand to shack up with.
They will show no discretion on the men they have sex with because they have already worked at a bar as a prostitute. They have slept with at least 500 – 1000 men.
(That number is no joke. These are the ones that you pray the condom never breaks with.)
The 5 types of Thai freelance prostitutes. Next time you hit the clubs and she asks how much, figure out what type she is and if she’s worth it.
