Bangkok is loaded with almost every sort of adult avenue imaginable, from go gos to blowjob bars. Perhaps most common of all are the massage parlors, which can be found all over the city.
Massage parlors in Thailand operate on a few different models. There are the “regular” or “mainstream” massage parlors that offer things like Thai and foot massage for a few dollars. Many individual masseuses in these shops will offer extras to male clients to make a few extra dollars, but it’s not the basis of the operation. Then there are the soapy massage parlors, where women will cover themselves in soapy suds before sliding around on your body and then giving you the “full service”. Finally, there are the oily massage parlors, which offer a variety of massage options followed by a hand, oral or full service finish at the end.
While there are plenty of each type of massage parlor around, I think there are many more oilies than soapies in existence. Amidst such competition, it’s even more notable that EZ Massage in the Sukhumvit section of Thailand’s capital city really stands out.
EZ Massage 1 in Bangkok
EZ Massage has two locations. The first is EZ Massage 1. The other is called EZ Massage 2. Both shops are located very near to each other. I’m familiar with shop number 1, and so that’s the location I will be reviewing in this post.
EZ Massage is located in a little side street just off of Sukhumvit Soi 24. The little street is filled with massage shops, but it’s not difficult to locate EZ. The shop is clearly marked with a sign. Once you enter the door you immediately head up a small flight of stairs where you are greeted by the mamasan. She shows you a menu and asks which course you would like. There are a few options.
In many oilies, the house only charges you a base rate of around 500 baht, with the rest going to the masseuse in the form of an appropriate tip. The usual expected tip is 500 for hand services, 1000 for oral and 1500 for full service. At EZ Massage, things are simplified with an all inclusive pricing system.
Rates and staff
At the rates charged you would expect to get full service if you so desire. And in fact you absolutely can. Prices fluctuate more according to the type of massage and the amount of time. There isn’t a lot of variation in price with the various massage options. The cheapest is the Thai massage at 1900 Baht ($62 USD). The more expensive aroma, gel, and lotion massages go for 2100 Baht ($68 USD). Upping the length of the massage from the standard hour to 90 or 120 minutes only increases the cost a few hundred more Baht. The most expensive options are things like 2 hour gel massages, but at only 2500 Baht ($81 USD) they are still reasonably priced.
Once you choose a course, you are shown a photo book from which to select a masseuse. They also allow for lineups by request. When the mamasan calls the lineup, the women available at the time stand in front of you in the lobby. With a lineup you view them all in person. In a photo book you see edited images.
There are a lot of women on staff at EZ Massage, and most are attractive. There is a lot of variety and there is probably someone satisfy every taste. Judging from the photos on their website, there is in fact a number of good looking women working at EZ Massage number 2 too. I will have to check it out in the future and compare, if I can build up the willpower to walk past the street EZ number 1 is located on.
A note about the mama here is deserved. Thai people are generally considered friendly, though the rigors of spending hours dealing with guys like me has to take its toll. You can see it in the faces of many a mamasan. At EZ Massage the mama is not only outwardly nice, she is genuinely kind. During one visit I made an off handed remark about having a headache. Within minutes she had some medicine for me to take, retrieved from a nearby store. What’s more, she didn’t even ask me to pay for it. That’s service! She’s also much younger than one might expect, at least judging by her appearance.
After you choose a lady, you are asked to take off your shoes and slide on a pair of slippers. Your masseuse then gathers her tools of the trade and leads you upstairs to your room. The rooms at EZ Massage aren’t huge, but they aren’t tiny either. There’s plenty of space to maneuver and do everything you need to get done. They’re also clean, which is not always the case at massage parlors in Bangkok. Additionally, each room is fitted with a large shower room, which is great since it means you don’t have to walk around in the hallways wrapped in a towel just to get your pre and post massage rinses.
Once in your room, you disrobe and get taken into the shower where your masseuse soaps you up with a sudsy gel and wash you off. Of course, special attention is paid to the most intimate of areas during this process. Once the shower is finished, the masseuse finishes rinsing herself off. Next you both dry and head to the bed, which is clean and comfortable.
Then you lie down on your stomach just as you would at any other massage parlor. The massage you chose will come next. Of course it won’t be the greatest massage in the world, but since that’s not the principle reason for visiting a place like this, no one seems to mind. Truth be told, the massages here are actually decent. They are even better at the services that follow.
A very happy ending
Once you flip over, the real fun will begin. What happens exactly is up to you and the masseuse you chose, but a combination of hand, oral and full services is normally up for grabs. All you have to do is enjoy. The staff at EZ Massage is particularly skilled, even when compared to the women that work at other massage shops around. They are also great at making you feel good and feel comfortable. They watch you instead of watching the clock waiting for your time to end. I doubt there are any clients who leave unhappy.
Once the fun time is over, you are showered again. Then you dry off and leisurely get dressed. Your masseuse walks you back downstairs and all the way out the door. Whether or not you tip is your choice. They are certainly happy to receive a few hundred Baht. Though they don’t give any bad looks or poor treatment to guys who simply pay the ticket price and leave.
I don’t generally make reviews on specific women working at massage parlors. One reason is that each person has their own tastes. Another is that women working in massage parlors tend to go from one place to another.
With that said, I do want to make mention of one employee at EZ Massage. Orange is a Bangkok masseuse who is both beautiful and in possession of large natural breasts. She’s 20, very cute, very sweet, and quiet well endowed up top. She has been working at EZ for a while, and I don’t think she has any intention to leave in the immediate future. She is one of the better gals I’ve met in this industry.
EZ Massage also offers outcall services to those who can’t visit the shop for whatever reason. They send a masseuse or two to your location in Bangkok for only a few hundred Baht more than the normal rate.
I think EZ Massage 1 is one of the best oily massage parlors in Bangkok. With so much competition that is really saying something. I give EZ Massage a solid four-and-a-half stars.
