Star of Light is one of the longest standing blowjob bars in Thailand, which outside of Japan is probably the country that holds the most penis polishing pubs in the world. The main difference of note that the kind of people who read this website would want to know about it is that while the blowjob bars in Japan are for the most part aimed at local guys who want to get their rocks off quick and easy (with a few notable exceptions, like this and this), the blowjob bars in Thailand are mainly targeted at tourists, expats and other foreign visitors. It used to be that most of the blowjob bars in Japan were a lot more expensive too, but with the wild fluctuations in economies and exchange rates over the last few years rates in both countries have started to approach more similar price points when calculated in US dollars.
Star of Light is located on Patpong 2 (sometimes spelled “Phat Pong 2” on maps) in the middle of Bangkok’s notorious Patpong red light district. There are various ways of reaching it, but for the sake of simplicity I’ll say that it’s only steps away from Sala Daeng BTS Station and the Si Lom MRT Station. Any taxi, tuk tuk or moto taxi will be able to get you there just the same, but when they hear that you’re going to Patpong, there is a fairly high likelihood that they’ll try to make some pit stops at places where they get commissions for bringing tourists. If you’re new in town, be straight forward and insistent on your destination, and don’t be afraid to get out if you have to.
Patpong 2 is a skinny little street. Star of Light is about half way up on the right side, if coming from Silom Rd (which you probably will be). There’s a sign outside indicating the location, so you should have no problem finding the place.
Star of Light has been open for years and has always provided a reliable level of oral action from a stable of women who on average look a lot better than you might expect, since after all, they spend their days and nights sucking off cock after cock to the point of nuts busted. There are usually 7 or 8 ladies on staff, and you should certainly be able to find one with the ability to slurp the love juice out through your straw.
The process is simple. Choose one (or two) of the ladies seated out front. Walk in, grab a drink for around $2-3 US (or avoid the drink all together as I tend to do), and start the festivities. The surroundings aren’t the greatest, but then again you aren’t going there because you’re a fan of luxury lounges or expert architecture, right? The only thing you need to see is the top of a head or two bouncing up and down on your prized possession.
It’s also an incredibly small place, with a bar in the back and booths on the side. But what else do you really need?
In the past it wasn’t uncommon to see a guy getting his pickle popped out in the open, while sitting at one of the stools at the bar. Some guys would get off while throwing back a beer, chatting with a mate, or even reading a newspaper. I have to admit I never tried the last option.
Like pretty much all the Thai blowjob bars, things have changed a bit toward the more private. I guess this was the result of some sort of crackdown or warning, though I’ve never figured it out for certain. I’ve spent my share of time in the Land of Smiles, but I don’t have any intimate knowledge what goes on behind the scenes.
Nowadays you make your way to the booths to get your noodle slurped. You can take off your trousers rather than leaving them around your ankles, which allows for some more freedom. It shouldn’t be any problem to get the titties out for some hands on play time either. Some of the better girls will pop them out on their own, with no prompting necessary.
That’s not to say that the booths really offer much in the way of privacy. They are totally open faced. The bartender/cashier will often continue to do her work behind the bar right in front of you, and you may be approached halfway through your suck session by another staff member asking if you’d like an additional mouth to feed. If the booths don’t offer enough privacy, you also have the option of using the bathroom. It’s big enough, with a shower and a seat fitted nicely into the corner for maximum usefulness.
Like My Friend You in Pattaya or any other self respecting Thai blowjob bar, the woman of your choosing will bring out her kit, complete with anti-bacterial wipes, and give your undercarriage a wipe down. Then she’ll get to work. It’s all bareback action. No rubbers in play unless you want full service or a finger up your pooper.
The slurping and burping won’t stop until you unload, as long as it’s within reason. Most guys are in and out in a matter of minutes. Sometimes you’re so drained from previous festivities in Thailand that it takes twenty minutes. While they’ll keep working diligently to get you off, kicking up your feet and trying to get through Les Miserables with your dong in your provider’s mouth is taking things too far.
The price for the blowjob itself should cost 700 Baht. At today’s rates that’s about $22.50 US. Only a few years ago it came out to about $17.50, similar to what you’d pay for a short time pump and dump on Blow Row in Angeles City. It’s still not bad considering what Western strip clubs charge for next to nothing, though it’s not far off from Japanese blowjob bars feeling the economic pinch that will now let you get sucked off by as many as three women in a row for $20.
This review comes later rather than never. I don’t know why I didn’t cover it before. I’m sure many readers who are familiar with Bangkok will already know of the place, but many others probably do not. I hope they’ll be happy to learn about it. I’m sure they’ll be happy to visit. Who knows how long this place will be around. Walking Street in Pattaya has already become a bit of a circus for tourists with no interest in sexual services, and the Patpong area is starting to fill up with more “legitimate businesses.” Only time will tell.
As an old standby in the blowjob bar circuit where a guy can go and get a satisfactory suck job for a few bucks, I give Star of Light a solid three and a half stars.
