Shoring in Thailand is the term used when you sleep with a hooker without paying for sex.
I’ve seen some people class this as ‘rape’ because they believe the shore-ee tricked the girl into thinking he was going to pay but didn’t. Others call it game or being an alpha male because they needn’t have to pay for sex.

Depending on the situation, I can agree with both sides to some extent. The R word is a bit extreme though, I would not say it’s that. (in before social justice warriors).
Where can you shore in Thailand?
Do I shore?
I personally don’t see the point.
If you want to meet girls without having to pay for it, Thai Friendly is awesome.
Put me in a nightclub and if I’m not totally f****ed out my head sideways, I’ll pretty much always be able to spot a Thai prostitute from a regular girl. My thought process is simple:
Do I want to pay for sex or not?
If the answer is yes, I’ll proceed to moonwalk towards the prostitute.
If the answer is no, I’ll proceed to pop and lock towards the normal Thai girl.
Using either dance move, one things for sure – I won’t be going home alone.
Personally I’ve never seen the reason to try and convince a prostitute to sleep with me for free.
Hookers in Bangkok clubs are working
I’ve read a few business books, I understand that time is money and that these girls are working (hence the term working girl).
95% of prostitutes who visit after hours clubs are working to get a customer. That’s their job.
I don’t want to waste hours of their time to get a free lay, I respect their line of work and I’m not in the freebee business (unless it’s free restaurant/hotel reviews nom sayin?)
I know they are working, if you live as a Bangkok expat for amount of amount you’ll know they are working too.
These girls go to after hours to make a living. On a very rare occasion will they be out for a friend’s birthday or celebration, and even then she may still be on the lookout for a paying customers.
Some working girls will actually like you
I’ve seen in some cases where a working girl clearly liked a friend, and after a 4 hour sweat fest in Insanity nightclub they go to the outdoor restaurant, eat food, have fun and look almost like boyfriend and girlfriend.
But remember this is the girl’s job. She wants to go with nice guys because who likes a douche bag?
Just because she is being very friendly and nice doesn’t mean it’s free. All Thai girls are nice and friendly regardless of their occupation.
Don’t consider this a green light for a free lay.
For example, I like all the clients I work with, but you don’t see me giving them several hours of my working time for free.
The gold digger
There are a few exceptions though, these are the working girls who have several sponsors and no longer need to work in a go go bar or support themselves.
These girls are not working and even though it’s very apparent they have rich boyfriends who send them money each month, these girls just want to have a good time and won’t ask you for money.
If you want to sleep with hookers and not pay for it, this is the niche you want to go for.
Should you shore in Thailand or not?
You can do whatever you like.
My advice is this: just ask a girl before you take her back to you room what the deal is, or if you don’t want to bring that up, just leave 1,000 baht note somewhere obvious and see if she takes it.
This is Thailand and Thai working girls won’t always ask you for money as in many cases they think you know the score. Ever heard the story about the Thai girl who never left someone’s room after a one night stand? It’s because she was waiting for him to pay but she didn’t want to bring it up to lose face.
What do you think about shoring?
I’d be interested to hear what you guys think about shoring in Thailand? Do you do it, do you prefer to pay or do you just ignore hookers all together?
