Since I feel like posting the same again and again, I just open a new thread and I will post liks to this thread. Many newbies register in this board, post a couple of pics or links to a video or porn site and ask contact informations on the ladyboy(s). Most of the times, we reply this is not a good strategy.
1) it's not since many of these porn pics/videos are a few years old. The lovely star got older andmany of these creatures who earned easy money spent it in partying, alcohol and even drugs. Older ladyboys are no longer the lovely bird a photographer or porn performer paid for a few years ago.
2) it's not a good deal to focus your attention on a fish that you won't probably be able to meet once in Bangkok/Pattaya/Phuket since she might have left the bar where she works, changed her phone number or just have left the city for a while to have rest in her hometown and take care of her old mother.
3) even though she is still where you expect to find her, she is likely to understand she the one in your mind and she will take advantage of the situation to make you pay double price or more and give you a poor service in return. She might even think you are annoying contacting her from your hometown.
4) you won't dare contact other ladyboys since they are not so pretty and will miss good opportunity.
What you'd rather do to build your strategy :
1) pick up a place (or places) in the vicinity of RLDs with ladyboys and find a good girlfriendly hotel over there (99 % of Thai hotels are girlfriendly with ladyboys). These places are well know : Bangkok or Pattaya are full of ladyboys, Phuket or Chiang Mai have a few interesting places. It's tougher to find ladyboys in other cities but still feasible.
2) define what kind of meetings you want to have : bars, gogo bars, street freelancers, social media (Wechat, Thaifriendly and many more). Of course, you can organize a mix of these and you will see what you prefer.
3) Never contact a ladyboy unless you are ready to meet her in her town. They are annoyed by guys they will never meet and sometimes try to rip them off asking for money to be wired to Thailand.
4) try to understand the price(s) system(s) and what you can expect with such prices. Also know what you want to do : have short time sex or a long time stay, have (almost) normal sex, bottom, find a mistress etc ... You can fulfill many fantasies with ladyboys, but a ladyboy alone can't fulfill all of them. You'd rather know what you want and explain before you pay.
If you follow these advises (I am pretty sure that a few advanced member will complete), you will avoid frustration and a lot of time wasting.
