Review: Cool — Seoul, South Korea
Cool is another upper tier jack shack in the Gangnam area of Seoul, similar to Belle which is about two minutes away on foot.
The place is pretty easy to find. If you take exit 4 out of Gangnam station, walk five blocks until you come to a major intersection (where you will see the Prudential building marked with a weird spiral sculpture on the sidewalk in front of you and a Starbucks across the street). Make a left here. As soon as you make the turn you’ll see a big clothing store named “Bang Bang” on the opposite side of the street. About a block up you’ll see a black sign that says “Cool” hanging vertically. The entrance is a bit back off the road in a parking garage.
Alternatively, you could take Exit 3 out of Yangjae Station Exit 3 and make a right at the first major intersection, which will be the one mentioned above with the Prudential building sculpture. After making the right walk until you’re in front of the Bang Bang clothes shop and then look across the street for the Cool sign.
Unlike a lot of the prostitution in South Korea, Cool is a place quite happy to accept foreign customers. Simply walk up to the door and ring the doorbell and you’ll be let in and greeted by a young Korean man.
It’s a decent enough set up. Not particularly amazing, but clean and good enough for the kind of establishment it is.
The cost here is a little higher than it is over at Belle. A standard hour-long session costs 90,000 Won ($81 US dollars), which is a tad on the expensive side. But the service is quite good so I don’t have too many complaints over the price that wouldn’t apply to just about anything else for sale anywhere in the world.
The routine is pretty normal. First you’ll shower, than you’ll head back to the room where your service provider will come to greet you. Some people seem to think the staff is a little hotter here that at some of the other nearby shops with a similar mode of operation, but in my opinion they’re about the same. They’re hot by any reasonable standards, usually in their early-20’s.
You will disrobe and then your provider will take off everything except her panties. You’ll get a brief light massage that’s good only for getting you turned on a bit, followed by a light catbath (licking you lightly up and down with a special focus on your nipples). Some report receiving a bit of light bareback oral here, but it’s not the norm. Some kissing usually occurs, but rarely of the deep French kissing (consider a kiss bang if that’s your thing). You will then usually get a sensual, lubed up handjob. It should definitely be enough to get you off. The best scenario is for your provider to climb on top and straddle you in the 69 position so you can get a nice look and maybe touch of her back bumper while she works your tool. Who can resist blasting off in a situation like that?
After you shoot you’ll be cleaned up and probably get a few minutes more of the lackluster massage. You should feel good and revived at this point.
Don’t expect much if any English to be spoken, but it shouldn’t be much of a problem in any case. Do expect a warm, cute and bubbly provider who take very good care of you.
Especially good service can come if you become a repeat visitor, seeing a favorite service provider, but full service is basically off the table. Don’t even ask for it. It could only cause problems, both for the venue and for you and any foreign customers who come after you.
If it wasn’t for Belle being right across the street, I’d be tempted to give Cool a 4 rating. But I have to put things into consideration. A Chinese massage parlor that would get a 4 in the United States would probably get a 2 in a place like Macau, home to the greatest men’s spas in all of the world. Even though Cool is good at getting the job done, it’s not the best thing going in the area. Taking it all into account, I give Cool a solid 3.5 stars. It’s definitely worth a visit.
If you’re worried about running into other customers, the best time to visit would be during a weekday (after lunch) or on a Sunday evening.
