Samui has plenty of sex massage places, but is a bit thin on proper soapy massage parlours that you would typically find in Bangkok or Pattaya. There is a difference; the ‘parlour’ simply implying sex onsite under the guise of ‘massage’, while the soapy is more established and also involves a bath and rubdown.
Soapy massage parlours are popular in Thailand, known locally as ab ob nuat. They’re unique to Thailand, offering a wash, rubdown, and ‘happy ending’. All this takes place on the premises, which is why it’s so popular in Thailand with the locals; discreetness being the key.
Most foreigners take bar girls back to their hotel rooms to do the business. This is great if you pick a good one and fancy sex all night, but if you just fancy straight sex without all the bar bullshit – listening to babble, buying drinks, bar fines, etc – a Samui soapy massage is the way to go.
Although touted as a body massage, there’s not much in the way of actual massaging, though that is the point. The girl will fill a small bath tub, wash you down and then give the massage, and extras, after. If she does it properly, she will perform the soapy, whereby she strips off, covers her body with slimy soap and rubs up and down you over a lilo.
This is all very erotic although the actual sex part usually takes place on the bed after. You get to choose the lady, usually from a dozen or so sat behind a glass (known as the ‘fishbowl’). They’ll each have a number and you point out which one to the mamasan (supervisor). Don’t be coy to ask the girl in question if she will perform certain sex acts, as it’s better to be bold at the start rather than pay your money and leave unsatisfied.
Although usually an hour, the sex massage is generally over once you cum and she cleans up. They’ll expect a tip anyway, but will certainly want a handsome one should you want the entire hour, or 90 minutes.
Unfortunately, you never know if the girl is going to be any good beforehand; some are experts, others will be bored and disinterested. If you feel you got a bum deal, speak with the mamasan after.
A couple of tips: don’t turn up to these places late (you could be number six or seven of the day), and avoid picking the small, young cutey types. They tend to be overly vain and liable to performing a less satisfactory service than the older, more experienced ladies. A soapy massage in Samui is around 2,000 baht.
Happy ending massages in Samui
A happy ending massage means a massage with the option of a wank to finish off. These places are scattered around the bar areas and have girls sat outside tempting in passers by for a Thai massage or oil massage. While legitimate massages, they also offer the happy ending.
The happy ending is usually around 500 baht, which will be on top of the initial 300 baht massage price. It can be really erotic, too; having your masseuse toss you off when you thought you were going for a straightforward massage can be the cherry on a very enjoyable surprise cake!
Not all offer this service and many punters have been caught out asking legitimate masseuses for extras. It is quite obvious which ones do offer the extras, though; they will be the places with pretty ladies sat outside of establishments within the bar areas.
Soapy massage parlours in Samui
Koh Samui is actually quite thin on the ground on sex massage places, and specifically soapy massage parlours, though some can be found in Chaweng. Head for Soi Solo in the central part. Pink Lady is renowned for sex massage, as it is Pretty Ladies on Beach Road (just past McDonalds).
