Wondering About Pinoy Bath Houses
How come Bangkok's massage houses are so way, way up the ladder in terms of facilities, ambiance, fixtures, if compared with ours here. honestly, nakakalungkot. di ba talaga natin puwedeng gawing kasing gaganda ng mga establishments natin dito ang mga gay places nila dun? i've been to bangkok many times and the many places of interests for gay men dun and also ours here in metro manila. sadly, ang layo talaga ng angat nila.
Your observation is keen and valid and it has challenged me to try to find an answer. Here's how I see it. The Bangkok gay scene is way much higher than ours because thery have a strong patronage from gay travelers (read: dollars coming in).
Now, Metro Manila can only attract the gay travelers if our "intelligent" city governments will just put an end to the frequent raids they launch against adult businesses and the "Imbestigador" TV show and its cousins, will stop making a a big deal about adult entertainment.
If we want to attract the gay tourists, laws in our country must be changed. And the revisions of these laws will come from every citizen especially from our community.
