Every single guy coming to Thailand meets at some point a ladyboy. In a lot of cases it can be really difficult to tell the difference between a girl and a ladyboy especially for guys that come for a holiday or are have been living in Thailand only for a few weeks and just don’t have the experience.
What then happens is they end up saying “oh no, she is too beautiful to be a girl” and missing out a super hot chick for being scared about a bad surprise or what rather happens they are just too drunk (or too inexperienced) to spot the difference and end up facing a dick instead of a pussy back in their room.
Especially during my first few months in Thailand I have had so many experiences talking to a super-sexy person and being not sure if it’s a girl or not. While I really think it needs some time spending in Thailand in order to be able figuring out the answer within seconds in this post I tell you some of the most important ways to check on whether you are about to hook up with a Thai girl or ladyboy.
I think the easiest method to figure out if it’s a ladyboy or not is by looking at the way she is behaving. Ladyboys tend to be not just straightforward in their approach but often a lot more pushing than a Thai girl will ever be. Trying to get what she wants without wasting any time.
Close related to that is the way she speaks and her voice. Ladyboys try to speak in a higher voice like the girls do and it’s just pretty obvious for me if they do so. Of course this method is the one that takes most time to get familiar with and you need to develop this skill by yourself. Believe me if you stay in Thailand for at least six months you have no problems with differentiating at all.
However if you can’t tell from the person’s behavior and voice due to your lack of experience with Thai culture, here are two simple ways by just looking at the body. Even though having done lots of surgeries there are certain things that very rarely get changed. Look at her – does she have an Adam’s apple? Yes or no? If yes, you better move on (or keep going depending what you’re out for). Of course ladyboys tend to use far more make up than girls do and they try to hide it.
However what they can’t hide are their hands. Thai Ladyboys have bigger hands than Thai girls like in every other country in the world. Of course there are exceptions and if she should have surprisingly small hands for a guy (what a fun post today), take her hand and see if the skin is soft and smooth like it should be. Believe me I have hold a lot of ladyboy’s hands and while Thai girls don’t like to put in much pressure at all – ladyboys do and you can feel that.
Speaking about the hands, there is also another quite old and useful trick: The ring finger of men is usually longer than the index finger (in other words the ring finger of women is usually shorter than the index finger).
There are quite a few other tricks to spot the difference between ladyboy and girl, check out the video below where the guy explains it pretty straightforward. And seriously, if you still have doubts and are unsure in some situation – just ask her if she’s a girl or not! It’s really that easy and a Thai ladyboy will never lie to you about that and give you a bad surprise later. In fact ladyboys are a lot more honest than a lot of girls you meet in Thailand. But more on that another time.
To be on the safe side you can also use one of the Ladyboy Dating Sites that strictly separates Thai girls and ladyboys.
Note: This post is not meant to discriminate Thai ladyboys but rather to help Farangs to know about who they are talking to.
