Note: This is a review of the state of the original Pump Station in 2013. A more up to date review of the Pump Station 1 explains how things in this location are today.
Even if you were new to the BJ bar scene the name of this place alone would tell you all you needed to know. It also tells what kind of naughty, fun place this used to be. When I write about blowjob bars and the fun of getting sucked off while tossing back a cold beer in a party-like atmosphere of pure delight and debauchery, The Pump Station of the old is what I am describing. Well my friends, those days are long behind us. The glory days of glory holes if you will. Welcome to the new reality.
Today The Pump Station is bone dry. A deserted wasteland in the midst of an oasis of sexual services.
The place is opened wide to the street, looking deader inside than a mortuary. There’s a bar with no one behind it. A television may be on, but there probably won’t be anyone watching it. Even the stray street cats don’t bother to pop inside. A strangely positioned fan does most, if not all, of the blowing.
If a customer is lucky they may find a grand total of two women working The Pump Station at any given time. During “off times” there may be one or even no employees on premises. Sounds like a hopping place, right?
They shouldn’t expect much of a welcome in any case, even if the “entire staff” is out front and (supposedly) waiting for customers. Nowadays a guy can walk right around the women sitting out front and into the bar without receiving as much as a “hello” from either of them. Those who want a drink or a blowjob will probably have to walk right up someone on staff and explicitly ask for it. If the women on staff can be pulled away from their meals or the screens of their smart phone, they will grudgingly meet the request. Maybe.
It’s often said that the women who work at blowjob bars leave a lot to be desired in the looks department. That’s certainly not true in all cases. There are plenty of beautiful ladies at Lolita’s in Bangkok and some real lookers at lots of other blowjob bars around the country. At The Pump Station though the old saying seems to find its reality. I’ve been told a looker or two still works here, but I’ve yet to see it with my own eyes despite several passes up and down the street on dozens of visits.
If one has the fortitude to deal with the staff at The Pump Station and make a request for some oral services, they’ll be taken upstairs to a ramshackle old room where the duty will be done. Everything leading up to that point should give you an idea as to what to expect as far as the level of service.
How about the price? The going rate for mouth work in Thailand has been creeping up over the last few years, with many places now charging 700 or 800 Baht for a quick blow-and-go (the new Lolita’s in Pattaya is a pleasant exception, charging only 600). The prices as The Pump Station are on the high end, though the exact rate seems to vary by the day and whether or not the boss is around. The last time I visited (and it will be the last time I visit) I was quoted 760 Baht ($25) all in, which seems to be a totally random price with no correlation to the rest of the industry. Future visitors can expect a range somewhere between 700 and 800.
Rockit Reports has been online for just over a year. The only time throughout that period that I’ve broken out the lowest-of-the-low half star rating was in my review of Balls Balm, and that was because the product almost seared my nuts clean off of my body. I have yet to give the half-twinkle to any individual or establishment, no matter how terrible. One reason for that is because however dirty or undesirable a place may be the women working there at least try. At The Pump Station that is sadly no longer the case. This may be the only adult oriented venue in the world where the working women do not want customers, despite depending on them to earn an income.
As bad as the attitudes of the women working The Pump Station are, I’d hate to take food out of anyone’s mouth. Especially someone who uses that mouth to make a living like this. I may be overly harsh in my assessment. Maybe there is just something about me personally that turns the lasses at The Pump Station off. I’m definitely open to hearing from others who have experienced to place. As they say so often in this game, “your mileage may very.”
