Thai Style Massage is world-famous.
But if you’re a guy and want some real fun, there’s a much better option – a Soapy Full Body Massage!
There are Soapy Massage Parlors all over Bangkok.
The main feature in all of them is girls behind the glass who provide you with a sexual service like no other.
Some of these Massage Parlors are high-end clubs.
They feature VIP suites, memberships, fine dining, luxury room, bottle service, and beautiful models.
Other parlors have the basics.
Like Thai food, massage rooms, beverage service, and attractive young masseuses.
Whether you go to a high-end club or small massage parlor, their primary goal is to give you a relaxing, sensual, Soapy Massage.
What is a Thai Soapy Massage?
A full body soapy massage involves a beautiful, well endowed, naked girl.
She will bathe you in a large Jacuzzi or private bathtub.
After the bath, the young lady sensually applies the soap to both of you, then proceeds with a body to body massage.
Once the massage is finished, she will rinse you off.
You’ll be lead to a nearby bed, where she gives you another massage and then has sex with you.
They are different from happy ending massages.
What Happens at a Soapy Massage Parlor?
1. Meet the Mamasan or Papasan

Upon entering the Soapy Massage Parlor, you’ll find yourself in a spacious lobby area.
On one side is seating for the customers; on the other is a glassed-in seating area called the fishbowl.
This is where the ladies are seated.
Once you’re seated, you’ll be greeted by the mamasan or papasan, whose job is to help you select your soapy massage lady.
You can ask any questions you have about the ladies behind the glass.
- how old are the girls?
- how long have they worked there?
- what type of services do they provide?
- and the most important question, how good are they at providing those services?
Once you have spoken to the mamasan or papasan, it’s time to choose from the fishbowl.
Don’t worry, guys, there are no ladyboys in the fishbowl. Ladyboys have their own massage parlors.
2. Check out the Fishbowl

The girls sitting inside the fishbowl are all employees of the massage parlor and receive a monthly salary.
They all wear a colored badge to show how much they cost per massage.
Newer, younger and prettier girls will cost more,
Girls with large boobs will cost more.
Older ladies that have been there the longest tend to cost less.
Generally, the fishbowl girls can’t leave the spa until it closes; usually, midnight or 1 am.
The cost for a 90-minute to 120-minute soapy massage with one of the girls from the fishbowl runs between 1500 baht to 2800 baht.
And, of course, the newer, younger, prettier, and more well-endowed girls may charge more.
3. Check out the Sideliners

The sideliners are freelancers who usually sit around the customer lounge side, not inside the fishbowl.
You’ll find a different color on the badge to identify them as sideliners.
Because they are freelancers, they can come and go as they please.
The sideliners are usually younger and prettier than the girls in the fishbowl, and maybe between 18 to 25 years old.
They’ll be in high demand, which is why they charge a higher price.
Many of the sideliners won’t do the body massage.
They will wash you in the tub, possibly give you a blowjob and then go straight to bed for sex.
In terms of service, it can be a hit or miss at times, so you might even have to work on charming the girls as you head to the room.
Make them comfortable with you; even give them compliments.
The cost of a session with a sideliner runs from 2500 baht to 5000 baht for 90 to 120-minute sessions.
4. Check out the Models

The term “Model” can have different meanings depending on the Soapy Massage Parlor.
In most of the Soapy Massage parlors, the girls they call models aren’t actually magazine models.
But they may be the tallest, the thinnest, the youngest, has the lightest skin.
Above all, they are the most attractive girls with the best bodies.
They usually sit on the top row of seats in the fishbowl, have a different badge, and command a very high price.
These models usually charge 3,500 baht to 10,000 baht.
Many models are actually models in the high-end Soapy Massage Club like Black Caviar, Maria, and Poseidon.
Some are former Thai Penthouse and Playboy models who charge 20,000 baht to 30,000 baht for 60 minutes.
This includes a bath and sex.
These A-level clubs also have models like the other massage parlors, not real models but super attractive.
They charge 8,000 baht to 15,000 baht, depending on age, looks, and skin tone (the lighter, the better).
5. Pick the Girl you Want and Pay

Once you choose the girl that you want, tell the mamasan or Papasan.
They will let the girl know she has a customer; then, they will take you to the counter to pay.
Usually, when you reach the counter, the girl is there waiting for you.
Once you have paid, the girl will lead you to your private room.
Use this time to get to know her and make her comfortable so you’ll have a better chance of a great soapy massage session.
6. Head to a Private Room, and it’s Sexy Time!

Once you reach the room, the girl undresses and fills the tub with lots of soap and water.
You both get in the tub, and she washes you, paying special attention to your little friend, offering either a casual handjob to start.
After the bath, she will apply soap to both your bodies and massage you by sliding her body against yours.
If she’s good at her job, you’ll get another handjob or blowjob.
Once the soapy massage is done, she will lead you to the bed where you’ll have sex.
The girls provide condoms, so you don’t have to worry.
Try to make the most of your session as some girls can get lazy after you blow.
If you want to extend your time with the masseuse, it will involve some negotiation, but an extra 1000 to 1500 baht should do the trick.
Once you pay for the girl at the counter, she’s yours again, and generally, you can’t change partners.
Many of the parlors also offer Nuru massages.
It usually costs 1000 baht more.
If you want a Nuru massage, ask about it before choosing the girls, as many girls won’t do it.
Where can you Find the Best Soapy Massage Parlors in Bangkok?
The highest concentrations of soapy massage parlors in Bangkok are found in the Huay Kwang area.
Some of the more popular places in Huay Kwang are Poseidon and Emmanuel.
You can even hire party rooms, bring a group of friends, and have fun with the girls.
Most soapy massage parlors open at noon, but the best time to visit is around 7 pm.
Many girls will have arrived by then, and there won’t be too many customers, so you have a better selection to choose from.
The best days to visit are weekends.
Most girls show up for work on the weekend, especially on the sidelines, many of whom have regular jobs during the week.
How Much do Soapy Massage Girls Cost?
How much a soapy massage girl cost depends on whether she works in a high-end massage parlor or a regular parlor.
The girls who work in the higher end massage parlors usually cost more.
At the high-end massage parlors, prices are usually double what they are at the cheaper soapy parlors.
The higher-end soapy massage parlor also offers more expensive VIP services.
This includes room service, large VIP suites for parties, and gourmet international dining.
They also offer club memberships from 25,000 baht up to 100,000 baht, which includes bottles of liquor and the use of VIP facilities.
Do you Have to Tip the Girls?
Tipping the girls, as Thais would say, is “up to you.”
You are not obligated to tip.
If you have the cash and feel generous, feel free.
If the services weren’t what you expected, don’t tip.
The rule on whether or not to tip is this – If the girl provided you with great service and a great experience, a 300 baht tip is appropriate.
The greater the service, the greater the tip.
Are the Venues and Girls clean? Any common STD’s?
Most of the venues are clean and well maintained, especially now in the Covid era.
Each room is cleaned, and linens changed after every customer.
Massage parlors provide condoms for customers.
The girls already have them when you go to the room.
Most of the venues, especially the higher-end ones, require the girls to be tested every three months for STDs.
Can you Leave if you Don’t see a Girl you Like?
If you don’t see a girl you like, you can leave.
There is no obligation to choose a girl if they’re not up to your expectations.
Just be sure you pay for any food or beverages you may have ordered.
Can you See the Girls Outside the Massage Parlor?
You can see the girls outside of the massage parlors if they are willing.
However, you can’t take the girls from the fishbowl out of the massage parlor before closing.
They are employees and have to stay during opening hours.
You would have to make arrangements to meet them after closing.
The sideliners and models are usually freelancers, so they can come and go as they please.
They tend to charge a higher price, so make sure you agree on the price and length of time before you meet.

Are Bangkok Soapy Massage Girls Cheaper than Gogo Bar Girls?

Go-go bars can get quite expensive.
You have to pay for lady drinks, bar fines, short-time rooms, and maybe an overnight hotel.
You can easily spend 5,000 to 10,000 baht before you even get to the sex.
To make sure you don’t waste your money at gogo bars, read our guide to gogo bars in Thailand.
For 3,000 baht, you can get a soapy massage from a beautiful girl, and possibly a blow job or two as well as sex.
All this without bar fines, lady drinks, and short or long time encounter that may or may not go the way you want.
In terms of services provided and money spent, soapy massage girls are cheaper than go-go girls.
Let’s look at it from a different angle.
Once your 90 minutes is up at the soapy, that’s it, and you’re finished. You just paid for sex.
A go-go may be more expensive, but you can keep the party going for hours, drinking, socializing, whatever you want.
The party and the fun are maybe just as important as sex.
Soapy massage girls are cheaper, but you can make the fun last longer at a go-go.
It just depends on what you’re looking for.
Are Bangkok Soapy Massage Parlors Better Than Gentlemen Clubs?

Bangkok gentlemen’s clubs feature live music, sexy dancers, and beautiful young women.
They will keep you company all night.
Many high-end soapy massage parlors try to offer the same VIP services as the gentlemen’s clubs.
This includes VIP rooms, bottle service, and membership packages.
For soapy massage parlors, though, the girls are there strictly for sex and massage services.
They can’t eat or drink with you in the VIP room.
At gentlemen clubs, the girls are mainly there to entertain.
From a price point of view, soapies are more affordable.
You get a beautiful girl, a sensual massage, and sex for around 3,000 baht.
From an entertainment point of view, a gentleman’s club can be more fun provided you have the funds.
You can enjoy the company of a beautiful lady in a VIP setting for as long as you want.
Plus, you can eat, drink, and be entertained by dozens of beautiful women.
And of course, if you like the girls at a gentlemen’s club, you can always negotiate and take them back to your hotel.
