Review: Star of Light — Bangkok, Thailand

star of light blowjob bar thailandStar 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.

star of light blow job bar patpong 2Like 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.

Star of Light, Patpong 2, Bangkok, Thailand. Open from around 10 am to around 1 am, 7 days a week. Click here for a Google map.

    Why don”t we have these types of venues in North America ?

    • rockit says:

      Laws and strange ideas of morality are probably the two leading reasons. There are some underground parties and strip clubs in the US where you can get a blowjob on premises. I’ve mentioned it on the site somewhere and more in detail in my book “How to Pay to Get Laid.”

    • rob says:

      i went to this place dec 2014 best 3000 baht i have ever spent the girl was good looking and i took her out for 2 hours to a hotel what a fuck and blow job to finish cum in her mouth and she sucked me dry . i have had 5 thai girls to date , but she was the best and even seemed to enjoy it would 100% go again if i am in thailand

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the comment. Cheers!

  2. This one says:

    Will you review Afterskool bar in soi Cowboy?

    • rockit says:

      I don’t have any plans to. Maybe sometime in the future. Cheers.

    • rockit says:

      An update: A review of Afterskool is in the works and will be online soon. Cheers.

    • Vikki says:

      Hey Rockit,
      can you recommend an establishment where I can try a ladyboy?
      I want to try it once but am afraid that the katoy might be too aggressive or may be carrying something.

      As such, I really woulnt prefer to goto freelancers or streetwalkers.
      Instead a place like Eden Club would be nice, where I can pick a ladyboy ( a true professional) and do the deed.

    • rockit says:

      Sorry, that’s not my scene. I did review a go go place in Pattaya that has both ladyboys and ladies, but that’s about the extent of it. I do know that there are quite a few ladyboy bars in Nana and on Soi Cowboy, and there are always ladyboys standing outside of a massage parlor on Sukhumvit somewhere around Soi 11 trying to find customers to take inside. Cheers.

  3. Vikki says:

    OK, time for the FR on Star of Light.

    A lot of places I went to in Bangkok had that curated professional look. But I wanted something seedy/perverted. So I ended up at SoL. This one can be a bit difficult to find.
    If you use the BTS Sala Daeng station, then use the exit towards Thaniya.
    Skip the first soi/alley to the right which will be Soi Thaniya.
    Skip the next soi. it is one catering mainly to gay customers. no ladyboys here but it is chock full of pretty males offering massages.
    the next soi to the right is the one. walk 200m into it and to the right, you may spy the board of the bar. it is very unassuming and its quite easy to skip it.

    When I reached the place, i saw only 1 girl sitting outside it. thinking that maybe other girls will soon come out, i decided to wait. i got a beer in the open bar right next door and nursed it a while.

    After 20 mins of waiting i could still see only that girl, so I decided to go in.
    I walked to her and indicated to her that i needed to go into the bar. she didnt seem much communicative, so i tried to open the door myself.

    inside were a couple of old white men and 3-4 girls. the girls here are not great lookers.
    the one at the reception pointed to wards the sofa and so I sat waiting for someone to speak to me. after 5 mintues of the girls talking to each others and to their white customers, i got impatient and called out to one of the girls.

    she tersely replied, that she’s got a customer.
    so far, the service level was utter shit. nobody seemed to care that a potentially paying customer was in there.

    so i got up and walked over to the bar table (literally two steps) and asked the lady there for a beer. she handed me a Singha. I then asked her that I want a blowjob.
    “from me?”, she sounded surprised. she was a bit big and mature but I wasn’t there for the looks. I told her that she will be great.
    She then told me that I can get a BJ in the bathroom, or on the sofa.
    I shrugged and told her to do the deed on the sofa, out in the open.

    She laughed and asked “you not shy?”
    No lady. if I were shy, i woulnt be here.
    So i sat down, and pulled down my pants.

    One of the customers had moved into the bathroom with a girl. the other one, seeing my saluting penis left the place in a bit of a huff (most likely deciding to wait outside for his buddy than be the spectator to my triumph :D)

    well, overall the bj was darned nice. she may have been old and less of a looker than others, but she sure could suck.
    I got one of the better BJs of my life. when I shot my load in her mouth for 30 seconds straight. she started saying “too much. came too much”
    dayum right bitch. I am a virile sexy man who can feed a villageful of Amazons.

    So to sum up.
    shitty service, but I suppose i can chalk it up to me being brown.
    good BJ. got what i really came there for.
    place was tiny. it really can fit in a trailer park.

    WIR: yeah, likely. I just loved the seedy atmosphere. I loved the idea that I can get a blowjob while people can go in or out of the place. it scratches a different kind of itch.

    • HalfAsian says:

      > i got impatient and called out to one of the girls

      Shitty service is not due to you being brown, but due to you behaving improperly.

      You tried taking over the girls sitting with other customers. That’s a HUGE no-no, about the biggest douche-move one could make in such an environment. You were lucky none of the other guys were drunk or belligerent.

      SOL has been nothing but friendly to me. They don’t have many staff, and at times all of them can be busy. In that case, you can either come back later, or wait your turn.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the comment. Cheers.

  4. BJ-Lover says:

    I was there a few weeks ago, i tried 3 girls and one girl i had 3 times.
    they made me cum 5 times in a few hours, i had a hotel close by so i always walked over again and again.
    i had taken a taxi earlier in the day to Dr.Bj and had 2 girls there, but they did not do the deed as good as in SOL.
    i only had one day in BKK, and i must say that i did not think i could get such amazing bj´s as i had in SOL and i am not a noob when it comes to bj bars. i can´t recommend this place highly enough but if staying in Bangkok visiting this place is a must.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the report. There are certainly some skilled gals working there. How did they feel about all of your return visits? Cheers.

  5. BJ-Lover says:

    one of them was really happy about me returning and asked me to take her to my hotel the day after, that i should pick her up in the afternoon and she could blow me all day or do anything else i wanted.. and she promised she would make me cum allot more then 5 times. To bad i had a flight back home early in the morning and i could not pick her up.
    but i had a chat with two of them, also a bj from two at the same time and i really liked how nice those girls where talking to.. i did not only get perfect bj´s there but the girls made sure i had a fun night as well.
    next time i go to Thailand, i have to stay a few days in Bangkok.

    • rockit says:

      Did you get any names? I’m just curious if any of the standouts I know we’re involved. I wouldn’t be surprised if so. Cheers.

  7. Joe Valentine says:

    Hey Rockit,
    I will be in Bangkok in Nov 2014. I do plan to try out many services on offer there. I have been to the soapy massage places but have not tried the bj bars. The question is do they swallow your cum at these bj bars? And do they suck the cock while you cum in their mouth or you kind of just squirt on their face and mouth? I am dying for a good bj with full throttle sucking action as I come in her mouth.
    I am also wondering if you can suggest any massage places in Bangkok that have sex toys like the sexswing and other toys that can be used during full service action?
    Thanks in advance. Joe

    • rockit says:

      Swallowing is not common at BJ bars for reasons that are probably understandable. It does seem to happen from time to time though. The best service providers keep going to the very end, though some stop or even take it out at the worst possible moment. In the later case things usually end up in the air rather than on anyone’s face. The most toy filled places I know are Eden and Bar Bar. Cheers.

  8. Farang says:

    I have locking after the star of light when i whas in thailand but cant find it….. :(:(:(:(:(:(

  9. Marquis De Sade says:

    I went to SOL yesterday afternoon and about 4 girls working. Took me a while to find it but glad I did. This place is awesome!!! I took all 4 of the ladies inside and had a fine romp. 1 sucking my balls, 1 on my cock and licking and kissing the other 2. The Indian man left happy.

    Going back again soon. what a place. Dirty, sleazy and fun!!

  10. Hontil says:

    Managed to get to Star of light on my recent visit to Bangkok. I’ve tried Dr BJ’s before and that was fine but I wanted to experience a true BJ bar.

    I managed to find the place OK but do your research before going. Best to keep an eye out for the white sign with red swirly writing. I arrived around 2pm and there were 3 or 4 girls sat outside eating – real shame cos a couple looked really cute and young. Went inside and ordered a drink. I was really surprised at how small the bar was – probably no more than 6m x 4m. There were a number of bar stools and two large built in red leather seats. After a couple of minutes the bar lady come over and told me 700thb if I wanted some action.

    I took my place on the leather sofa and dropped my pants. My lady came over an immediately dropped to her knees and started to give me a quick wipe over and then it was down to business. She got her tits out without being asked and I managed to have a quick grope.All in all it was a really good experience. My only disappointment was not to have any other punters there just to add to the seediness of the place. I will definitely go back again on my next visit and hopefully the place will be a bit busier. Finished my drink and left very satisfied. I then jumped on the Skytrain over to Nana where I managed to fuck a young 22 year old girl up the arse. What a great day.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the comment. Customers can usually chose their providers at these kinds of places, even the ones where some women hang around outside. If they don’t chose they’re often given whoever is next in line. Cheers.

  11. Larryo says:

    This seems to be telling me that service in the bar is back on. I had seen on other forums that take away was the only option come the evening.

    Can anyone confirm?


    • rockit says:

      The only thing that I heard was that some customers were being examined and possibly refused if they appeared to be undesirable or possibly dangerous. I don’t know what the reality is on the ground since I haven’t investigated in some time. Cheers.

  12. Chelnov says:

    I have read on a forum that not only you are allowed to get bj in the main area in public,
    but also you can get fuck your chosen lady there, if u like to get watched.
    anybody can confirm or deny?

  13. Joe Dirt says:


    Are there any blowjob bars in Chiang Mai? If not, why do you suppose there isn’t? Surely there is a demand there.

    • rockit says:

      I’m not aware of any but I haven’t been there in some time. There very well could be some around. They don’t seem to be as common outside of Bangkok and Pattaya. There was one in Hat Yai but I don’t know if it’s still open. Cheers.

  14. Tony says:

    The last fortnight I have made a return trip to my second home and a long awaited visit to SOL. I really don’t understand how the odd punter cannot find this place, it’s not hard at all. I met the lovely Rabbit outside where we went into the bar area and found a place on the sofa at the bar. She seems to me to be the sexiest girl there and when I followed her in she was wearing a little white miniskirt and heels which is exactly to my liking. She is a very friendly girl and the blowjob was great going the whole way down her throat with a mouthful of juice. After I finished off we sat together and had a few drinks in the bar before I left for a visit to some of the GoGo bars in Patpong 2. A great way to start a night out. Can’t wait for a return there & well worth the 700baht. Cheers.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the report. Always nice to hear about what’s going on. Rabbit has been working for some time and she’s very skilled. Pla is another great performer. I wonder if she is still working. I agree that the place is very easy to find. Getting to the streets and figuring which Patpong is which may be more difficult for a first time visitor but things like Google maps should even help with that nowadays. Cheers!

  15. JohnD says:

    I get to BKK once a year for the last few years and always start my entertainment in the SOL. Nothing like a beer in hand and your cock in a mouth to tell the brain you have really arrived in Bangkok. On my first visit, just a straightforward bj on the sofa, I was hooked. On my next visit I had two girls, one doing the deed below while the other offered her pussy to my eager tongue, followed by her sitting on my cock (with condom) while her friend massaged and licked my balls and other parts till one of the best explosions of my life. On later visits I get the first round over, then just hang around the bar and have a beer while lady after lady, for the price of one lady drink, do their best in a number of ways to get me hard enough for another round. This can last the best part of an hour and is really great value for money before finally going for round two and leaving completely drained. Next time, I am determined that round two will be full sex with my chosen partner bending forward over one of the bar stools while sucking the tits and playing with the pussy of a second. I’ll let you know how I get on.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the comment. I believe many share your sentiments and hope SOL won’t go through a situation like Lolitas just had. Cheers.

  16. Slim Tim says:

    Was in vacation in Thailand and went to SOL yesterday for the first time—it was my last day in town and I was in a hurry but needed to see what it was about. I’ve never done anything exhibitionist but reading the reviews I felt like it would be my scene.

    Walked around and saw a decent girl sitting with her headphones in (I believe her name was Da?) and asked if I could take her inside. She asked if i had been there before I said no but i know the drill and wanted to get right down to business. She to me to the open booth and I saw Rabbit laying on the other booth lounging. Grabbed her and said “youre joining us”

    Both of them start sucking me off like theres no tomorrow and I am completely naked in the bar–so is Rabbit–Da is clothed. Rabbit asked if I wanted to fuck her and i said why not. She is reverse riding me like crazy while Da is sucking my balls and a guy/another girl come out of the bathroom right then. dude bolts out.

    I keep pounding Rabbit anyway in every position for about 15 minutes and about three other girls come to the bar just to watch (I’m a young black guy so I think they were interested). Finally, both of them suck me off while I’m standing and I bust all over Rabbit and Da’s faces.

    It was incredible. and if you’re in the being watched type of scene there is nothing better than that place. Thanks for letting me know.

  17. Raj says:

    What is the best time to visit SOL? Because when last time I visited there was only 1 lady available. I had visited around 7pm

    • rockit says:

      Staff varies from one day to the next. There are usually three or four women on staff. Cheers.

  18. Mr.Z says:

    Does the Girl at Kasalong swallow the cum?
    Just clarify, it a BJ without condom right?

    • rockit says:

      Most women work without a condom in most cases. None swallow as a matter of habit. A few may do so on request but it’s not common. Cheers.

  19. Mr.Z says:

    Thanks Bro,
    Any idea or recommend of Ladies you know that do swallow the Cum?
    If they do, is it on additional cost? If it additional cost, how much would it be?

  20. J,C says:

    Hi and first of all thanks rockit for all your articles in this website they are very usefull
    Im a spanish guy that want to travell to bangkok a week these summer for sex tourist specially and i want to ask you wich are the best hotels (locations) for this kinf of tourist and how much money i should take, the first places i must visit(bj bars mainly) and if you could give me any tip or something
    Thank you

  21. Señor C says:

    Hey rockit
    do you know if this bar is still working? the last news i heard about the military goverment were a bit agressive againts this buisiness
    and do you know other bars where you can get blown in the open

  22. Johnny says:

    Thabks for the info. I’m traveling in Thailand with a buddy and we enjoy screwing chicks together. No problems two guys coming here together and each getting blown while watching the other?

    • rockit says:

      I don’t know that the place has any specific rules regarding that sort of thing but it certainly not uncommon there in any case. Cheers.

  23. Kieran says:

    Went here a while ago. Girls were very kind to me. A beautiful MILF approached me right ahead, asked me where I was from. I said I was from the Philippines. Then we went inside the room and shet took off her tops and sucked my cock so well, and staring with beautiful eyes. She gave me a boobjob and allowed me to lick her beautiful breasts. She sucked me till I came on her mouth. Aaah.. great experience! I recommend.

  24. Tim says:

    Are the girls tested regulary at blowjob bars? Also, at SOL is bareback full service an option?

    • rockit says:

      Honestly I don’t think any girls at any BJ bars are tested for anything ever. Perhaps some may go get tested on their own if they have a reason to but it’s not house policy at any place I have heard of. Of course I could be wrong although I have heard reports that women are even forced to work when ill at some of the BJ bars which would explain why some guys say they have caught gonorrhea at some of these places. Of course some women offer bareback full service to certain people at various places but obviously that’s not very safe. Cheers.
