Now in it’s fifth decade of operation, Annie’s Massage near Nana Plaza in Bangkok is somewhat of an institution. The place has been around as long as any Asian sexual service provider that I know of, though it has been through a few changes. The current ownership took over a while back and the shop has been offering the same standard of service for several years.
I don’t need to go too much into the history of Annie’s in this review. For our purposes, the only thing that matters is what is available in the here and now. At Annie’s, you know what you’re going to get before you even get there, and that’s a guaranteed good time.
Annie’s is easy enough to find. You can take a taxi or a the BTS train (which is quite nice, and inexpensive) to Nana Station. Then turn off Sukhumvit onto Soi 4. Walk past Nana Plaza (I know it’s tough, but you have to do it if you want to get to Annie’s). Keep going until you reach the 7Eleven and immediately make a right turn. Head down that throughway a bit and you’ll see the big red Annie’s sign staring you in the face just before you read Soi 2. Enter and head up the stairs and you’ll be off to the races!
Annie’s used to be a more inexpensive place to get off, but today it’s more of a traditional Thai soapy massage venue. What that means for the uninitiated is that staff members are available to soap you up and then hop on and give you a ride or two until you’re spent.
There are all manner of soapies in Thailand. Some are palatial and resemble miniature casinos, complete with places to eat and sleep. Others are run down and dingy. Annie’s is neither a mansion or a complete hole in the wall (though the rooms are definitely a bit dingy). It’s set apart from the rest of the pack by the high level of sexual service its employees are known to provide.
Annie’s also has a few other positives going for it. The mamasan is very customer service oriented and easy to deal with and there are no mark ups for non-Thai/Asian guys, which does unfortunately exist in many other shops.
What about price? Annie’s falls somewhere in the middle of the Bangkok range. For 2500 Baht ($ 78) you get two hours of fun with any of the women on staff.
That’s another positive in my book: one price across the board. Many soapies have multi-tiered pricing with various levels for girls in the “fishbowl” and entirely different prices for “sideliners” and “models.” Sometimes that’s okay, but other times it’s more hassle than I want to deal with when I’m at a place ready to get laid.
If you want to take 2 women it’s 5000 Baht, three women is 7500 Baht, and so on. Tips aren’t required but some guys do give them for exceptional service. If you have special requests that are well above and beyond the normal services, you may be able to get them for a premium by talking to the mamasan on staff about your needs before choosing a girl. In the case of Annie’s the rub, mouth action and full service has always been more than enough.
An added bonus is that the women on staff at Annie’s are all given regular health checkups. This doesn’t happen at every facility, and while it’s no guarantee of anything, it is a real plus.
You can contact the management at Annie’s ahead of time to book a girl, but I don’t recommend that unless you’ve seen the girl in person before. It’s better just to show up and see who is available at the time. Looking over the service providers in the flesh gives you a much better idea than pictures on the internet. Besides, there are always girls who don’t have pictures on the website. Just plop yourself down on the couch and let the mamasan call on the girls to show for you.
I’ve seen claims online that Annie’s has close to 100 employees. I don’t know if that’s true. It seems to me the number is probably half that, but I can’t for sure. I know that I’ve never seen a line up of anywhere near 100 girls at Annie’s at one time, but of course girls do get customers and days off. In any case, I’ve always been able to find at least one woman who tickles my fancy.
The best bet is to take a look at the lineup and feel the vibrations. If a girl is smiling at you or flirting with your eyes, that’s a good sign. If she’s looking away coldly, it’s probably not. Take your time and balance the reaction you get with the level of attractiveness to make the best choice. Don’t be afraid to ask the mamasan for help choosing either.
After you chose your girl, you’ll be led to the room. As I said earlier, these are far from the greatest. I never let that bother me too much though. I remember why I am there, and it’s not for a nice room. Your provider will gather her bag of tricks and get to work.
The routine can change a bit depending on the girl and the way things go, but you’ll always get water play and then the real action. Usually there will be some oral service thrown in with the water. It’s a nice back and forth mix. Oral and full sex are absolutely on the menu. Tongue kissing is available with many girls and a few are even up for anal. You should be able to get two loads off in the allotted time, as long as you’re up for it.
The level of service is fantastic. There’s a reason Annie’s has been around so long, and in my opinion it comes down to that. No matter who you chose, you really can’t lose.
As an okay facility with a pretty good staff that offers amazing service, I give Annie’s Massage a rating of 3 and a half stars.
If Annie’s was anywhere else in the world I’d give it at least four stars. Alas, it’s not. Annie’s is located within running distance of more massage parlors, go go bars, blowjob bars and streetwalkers than you can shake your dick at. I had to take that into consideration, as well as weighing the place up against nearby competition, when writing this review.
Still, the place is definitely worth a visit. Everyone has their own tastes. Some guys swear by one place and hate another. Some guys are okay with any shop that will take their tool in for servicing. That’s why the phrase “your mileage may vary” is so common. You have my opinion, go out and formulate your own.
