Straps is a go go bar in Nana Plaza on Sukhumvit Soi 4. It is unique in that it only employs post-op ladyboys. That is, it only hires transgender women who have been through a full sex change operation. They’ve had their penises chopped off and remodeled into man made vaginas.
Ladyboys aren’t as hard to spot as some people like to pretend. At the same time, the ladyboys at Straps are some of the best looking ladyboys to be found in Thailand. None of them look masculine at all. Since none of the ladyboys themselves admit to having been born males it is likely that a lot of customers have no idea.
The mamasan and waitresses don’t bring it up either. When customers mention it, they usually pretend they don’t know anything, say the dancers are ladies, or get angry that they were even asked. One could argue that a guy has a right to know that any woman they plan to sleep with was born a male. On the other hand, one could also claim a right to privacy. Most guys don’t get the sexual histories of the women they bed, especially when they come out of go go bars. So why should they get their full personal histories?
Regardless, Straps is there operating every night. It is located up the stairs immediately to the left after entering Nana Plaza. It has a large illuminated sign that is impossible to miss even though Straps itself is tucked in its own sort of corner. The dancers wear small bikinis and their firm bodies can often be seen from outside in the plaza itself.
Straps go go bar in Nana Entertainment Plaza is open every day from 7:00 PM to 1:00 AM. Their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/Straps.Nana/
