There is one less blow job bar in Bangkok

The Lollipop 1 blow job bar in Bangkok has closed its doors. Another business has taking over the location. No oral activities are offered there as far as I can tell. This news first came to my attention thanks to a comment by a guy called Dan who said the place was shuttered at the end of August. I have since been able to confirm the information.

It is telling that the closure of the Lollipop 1 made such little impact that it wasn’t even reported anywhere online. Contrast that to the closure and relocation of the popular Som’s Haven which did at least receive some mention or the temporarily closure and name change of the well known Dr BJ’s which made all sorts of sex industry website headlines.

No blowjob in the bathroom sign

The Lollipop 1 never seemed to be all that well known. At times it was incredibly quiet. It seemed to be most busy in 2017 with people often spotted playing pool at the bar. It may seem odd that the bar would close after hitting its high point but stranger things have happened.

Remember too that the Lollipop at one point was popular or successful enough to attempt an extension of services. As reported in my post on the lost blow job bars of Bangkok there was once another branch of the Lollipop operating on a side soi of Sukhumvit Soi 11 well away from the BTS.

The other Lollipop was so little known that some weren’t even sure whether the place was still around or not when I published that report three years ago but I was able to confirm that a massage shop had taken over the location of the Lollipop 2.

All of this isn’t that strange considering all of the changes and rumors that occur in the local blow job bar scene on a regular basis. Providers bounce from one bar to another. Star performers branch off from popular bars and open their own places. Bars change names and owners. Bars also close seemingly overnight only to reopen a day or two later with freshly painted walls but the same staff and service. There is also a lot of talk. In June 2015 a comment was posted on this website suggesting that the Lollipop 1 would close in July of that year. In spite of that the place kept going for years.

A few days ago I asked whether there are too many gentlemen’s clubs in Pattaya. Some may ask the same about the blow job bars in Bangkok. While they certainly get there share of customers guys aren’t exactly lined up outside of the Bangkok BJ bars waiting for service.

Since Dr BJ’s reopened as Wood Bar there has been a noticeable drop in the number of women on staff. The same goes for Duangporn’s Haven which has just half as many women working as Som’s Haven did only a few months ago.

In Patpong things might even appear bleak to some. In the years after Mike’s Place closed other bars continued to trudge on even with less customers and revenues. Considering inflation and the fact that rents regularly rise in Bangkok and around the world one can only wonder which blow job bar will be next to go out of business.

You might think that there would always be a market for a skilled blow job. Perhaps you would be correct. The question is how big that market is and what it can bear especially as an increasing number of women considering oral sex a regular part of life and learn skills like deepthroating while more working women turn to freelancing and the internet to find customers.
