Hi! This is in reply to the gentleman's query about what actually happens in a dance bar in Mumbai. Well all ye people you are about to be enlightened. The dance bars in Mumbai (Ladies bars as they are popularly known) works on principle of the man's intense desire to be able to attract women when HE wants. Face it guys each one of you wanted to be able to attract female attention.
The way to to this in these bars is through money. In each of these bars (Topaz included) you are encouraged to fork out money. Whether it is to the dancers for the "pleasure" of touching their fingers for a lingering moment or to the waiters for bringing you smokes/drinks or the doorman for saluting you... thanks is expressed here in the form of hard currency. If you are the guy who is known to tip at the drop of a hat everyone will grovel before you otherwise you will be treated will cool disdain.
Lets come back to the main topic. Why these bars flourish? Only because the customers get a momentary feeling of power. The power to make anyone snap to attention depending on the depth of their pockets. The girls encourage this because they are getting money just for a private smile or a suggestive handshake. They don't even have to endure a squeeze of their breasts let alone go out for the night. I am not for a moment suggesting that the dancers and waiteresses in these joints are pure. They do come out with you - but only if you are a regular and by then you would already have spent thousands on them. You then have to shell out money agin for the screw. After that the customer has lost interest in that dancer and she knows it too. So she'll milk you till she can. After the fuck the customer moves to a new girl and the girl to a new customer. Some poor saps are strung along by these girls for so long that they spend their lives savings on the girl and yet do not get her.
You can easily guess which guy each dancer is stringing along. The guy is called her "deewanaa" (a hindi word to describe a guy who is madly in love). So what the gentleman saw at Topaz was some poor guy getting strung. I have probably visited almost 60% of all bars in Mumbai and have not lost much money so far. Probably about Rs. 6000 in 4 years. Dirt cheap by ladies bar standards. I've even got a bar dancer to meet me out side the bar. But when she told me her story, I was so moved that I did not have the heart to fuck her.
Bottomline: You see a girl in a bar whom u would like to fuck, tell her straight and negotiate a price. The really good ones rent out at Rs 500 for a night. Rent and booze extra. If she's stringing you, she'll hand you some bull shit about her piousness. If you really have the hots for her, visit the bar thrice possible in the same week and keep speaking to her. To get her to come to you u'll have to hand her a tenner. But keep well within budget and don't get carried away with the giving her money.
This is tough guys... believe me. They actually make you feel good when you hand out the money. If she hasn't agreed to meet you in three visits then forget her. Just FORGET her and you'll be a lot happier. Need anymore tips on any aspect of Mumbai night life - just keep writing. (Added: Fri Jul 14 2000)

I've lived in BOMBAY for last 25 years. I saw that there was no mention of my city in compilation so I'm giving few details.
Girls here r one of the cheapest on earth and goodlooking too (not all of them)
U can pick up a girl for short time (1/2 hr to 1 hr) for US$ 3 onwords and for full night u have to pay US$10 onwords.
1) Juhu Tara Road, Near Juhu beach of BOMBAY. (2 km from Airport)
U stand nr some busstop or park your car and in few minutes some girl in Auto rikshow (3 wheeler vehicle) will approach u. Girls r average looking, some give blowjob for extra Rs100 (US$3) Timeing: 2PM to 11PM, best to go after 7pm (many girls at this time)
2) Colaba. Nr Radio club.
3/4 brothels. Walk from Radio clum towords main rd (Colaba causeway). 2nd and 3rd bldg has brothels. Some guy will approach u. and take u there. Girls r very nicely dressed and beautiful. U choose girl and other will leave room. Airconditioned room and clean bed and mirror can be seen. Rs 350 to Rs600 (US$10 to US$18) Extra for blowjob and anals cost 5 to 10 $.

Age of consent in INDIA is 16 and like most countries in the world it is semi-legal. In BOMBAY one or two brothels r raided every year to make news and those call girls who r caught r released on bail next day.
People r really scared of AIDS over here. Most girls would refuse to have sex without condoms. Condoms r distributed free to call girls. Some of the college going girls also offer sexual services to make extra money. They can be picked up at disco/pub's. They r alone and wearing colorful clothes (red/orange/yellow).

Subject: Bombay Scene Date: Tue, 27 Feb 1996
I just returned from BOMBAY. It is cheapest place on earth as far as night life goes (it can rival Bangkok and Amsterdam as far as prices goes and girls speak/understand english).
On 1st night I picked up a girl in her early twenties from a Pub at Juhu (J49). I had a terrific time with her. She was 5'7" and 34-24-26. Her rate for full night was Rs5000 (1US$=Rs35) but after sometime she settled for Rs.3000 (apprx US$85). She was blond and spoke English.
She took me to her flat in a cab (took 10 minutes). She undressed herself and then me. We had a shower together (very erotic, I almost came). Then she gave me massage with hand and then her breast. After that she sucked me for a minute or two and slipped on rubber. She rode me with a finger in my anus. I came after sometime with flood.
She cuddled me and we were asleep in notime. In morning I had her once more. I gave her Rs.500 more than agreed price.
I will definitely visit her next time I go to Bombay.
Next night I had a girl in her late 20's. She was not as good as previous one but cheaper (Rs.2500). We had a straight and then after some hour anal sex. She can be found at 1900 disco in Hotel Taj every night after 8pm.
Subject: Massage Parlors in Bombay Date: Fri, 15 Mar 1996
I was in Bombay last summer and would like to share information about massage parlors there. There is a newspaper called MIDDAY that is published daily and available at almost any magazine or book shop or at railroad stations after about 11 AM every day. It costs the equivalent about 5 US cents. Look for advertisements for beauty parlors in the classfied advertisement section. About 10 of them are listed every day. Almost all of them offer massage services. I would recommend the one on Cawasji Patel street. You can choose the girl you want. For about 10-15 U.S. dollars you can get a blow job or hand job. You are allowed to touch and kiss the girl everywhere except the genital area.
If you are willing to pay about 20-30 U.S. dollars more, you can get full service. There are usually about 10-12 girls to choose from and many of them can understand English. Some can speak, though not fluently. Out of the 10-12 girl, usually 2-3 are good.
Subject: India, Bombay Date: Tue, 30 Apr 1996
I just visited Bombay for 2nd time in 4 months (I was born and brought up there).
One of my local friend there, took me to one HOUSE in Bandra Hill Road, managed by Gujrati lady called Ms. Mehta. Its on a building opposite Elco Arcade.
There were 4 girls ranging from 18 to 30. All of them were Gujrati and classy types (nicely dressed, spoke English too, and didn't look cheap). Cover charge is Rs.500.
I selected a girl around 22 named Sonal. She was wearing denim mini skirt with figure hugging top (looked very erotic), she was tall 5'8" (tall by Indian standard).
She took me to one of the two bedrooms, it was a average room, had air conditioned working and bathroom with shower.
She asked me what would I like to do and we agreed on Rs.1000 for full service.
1st we shared a shower and cleaned each other, meanwhile we were conversing in English and littlebit Gujju (I am Sindhi). She told me she was studying for Fashion Designing before joining this trade. Her family does not know about this and she is doing this because it gives good money to maintain lifestyle.
Then we lied on bed. She started rubbing her breast on me and then sucked my cock. After sometime I could not hold it any more and she slipped Condom on me and I started in missionary positon. It lasted another few minute.
Overall it was good value for money and will visit again sometime in future.
Date: Mon, 3 Feb 1997 Subject: Bombay - INDIA
Hi Bombay is now called "Mumbai". I visited this city in January for 12th time. Traffic and Hotel situation is improved over last year.
There is a new full-service joint operated by 3 ladies (all gujrati ladies in their 20s) at linking road. It is opposite Arrow Shirt show room on 1st floor.
They were very beautiiful and clean by Indian standard. One of them I went in with a girl called Tina (I don't think its her real name). It was Rs.500 for 1 hour OR Rs.1000 for full night.
Room was good with bath room/shower (which we used). Girl knew english well.
I would recommend this joint to all. Use word "Tony" sent me to gain entry.
Also there are more girls roaming near Hotel Oberoi after 5:30pm.

Just read your world sex guide. Thank you for providing this service to decent people who are looking to fulfil their god given desires in a country controlled by religious bastards. We need to make people aware that the assaults that we see in the USA on basic human rights such as abortion, contraception, homosexuality, adult pornography, topless bars and prostitution are entirely due to religion. It is outrageous that a man who offers money for prostitution can be sent to jail- the police even carry out entrapment procedures called stings. Please keep up the good work.
Your information on Bombay, India- one of the world's great cities with a population of over ten million- does not mention the main prostitution area in Bombay- the Falkland Road area- where there is a one square mile area of brothels with the women scantily clad and standing by the side of the road. This is a real sight to see. The area is easy to find- there is a local train station at Falkland Road. Although illegal, well tolerated- the main religion in India is Hinduism which is very tolerant. Europe is christian but the religion is weak and so prostitution is semi legal and well tolerated. USA will reach that stage in 20 years- until then I guess we have to put up with this religious nonsense. Of course, we are better off, compared to a muslim country where you will be amputated or executed for what they consider unacceptable sexual activity.
Date: Tue, 28 Apr 1998 Subject: prostitution in Mumbai- India
Went to Mumbai on a business trip on 18th April, 1998 and decided to check out the prostitution scene there.
The cheapest place to have sex is Kamatipura. A region populated mostly by chinese featured girls - mostly from nepal. The going rate is Rs 20 - Rs 50 ($0.25 to $1.25) for a fuck (30 min). Another such place (unhygenic) is Gairwadi.
On paras road, it is possible to find a number of girls loafing around. Just call them near your vehicle (using finger movement for eg) and negotiate. The going rate is Rs 200 to Rs 800.
If really interested in fucking virgins, the place to go is Bandra. Opp. Plaza hotel, on the link road. The going rate is Rs 15000 - Rs 16000. The "sealed pack" is normally guaranteed by the middleman. South Indian ladies can be had at a place called Dreamland (Rs 500-3000). Most Taxi drivers know it.
If you are looking for not just a fuck but some quality too, the place to search for is Shimla house, where college girls (talking english etc) come. It is pretty discreet.
The place I liked best was on the side of Regal cinema hall (near lion gate), on the footpath. After it gets dark (say after 8pm in summer), an entire spectrum of prostitutes is standing there. No middleman involved, you negotiate and avail services - usually in nearby hotels.
Date: Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Subject: Disco 1900, Taj Mahal hotel, Mumbai
Having heard reliable rumors of meetings with vintage prostitutes in the Disco 1900 at India's most prestigious five star hotel, the Taj Mahal in Mumbai, I went there to check out on the situation. Here's my findings for you to follow up:
Disco 1900 is not really public. Admission is reserved for hotel residents and members of the discoteque, except on special days like New Years Eve and Valentine's Day when anyone who meets the dress code (no shorts, no slippers, no t-shirt) can buy a ticket at the entrance.
In order to become a member you must have a recommendation from someone who is already a member. And you will have to be an Indian national or a long term expat. "Long term" means at least 6 months. In 1997 the membership fee was 4900 rupees, the membership year is the fiscal year - April 1 to March 31.
You can, however, enter for one night if a member signs the guest book on your behalf and pays at the entrance.
It would be interesting to know if Disco 1900 (generally considered one of India's best) is venerable, historical Taj Mahal's outlet for sexual hanky-panky on the sidelines. Does anyone know by personal experience? - Post your wisdom here!
Date: Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Subject: Surai Lounge & Bar, Chembur, Mumbai
I went to Surai (147/2/3, Shell Colony Road, Near Railway Crossing, Chembur, Mumbai-71, tel 523 3437 or 523 0823, fax 523 3437) which presents itself as a "V.I.P. lounge & bar" on its business card, given to me by a girl whose sister is a dancer there.
Chembur is best described as a suburb to Bombay. It took almost one hour to get there by taxi. After some searching the driver found the place where the name "Surai" glowed in neon letters. It is almost right under a highway bridge, and the area is obviously poor. (Warning: It is difficult to get a taxi from here. I saw only three-wheeler autorickshaws near Surai. Ask the taxi to wait!)
I opened the door and peeped inside. A gambling hall for computer games! But a watchman opened an inconspicuous door right beside the one I was at and showed me a narrow flight of stairs, lit by subdued red lamps. I walked up to first floor level where I stepped into a quite small room with easy lounge chairs by the walls. 3-4 young girls, wearing colorful traditional dresses, were dancing to earsplitting Indian pop music going full blast from loudspeakers. It was not unlike classical Indian dancing but I am in no position to evaluate the quality. It looked amateurish but quite charming.
The girls appeared to be about 16-18 years old. There was a marked difference between their neat, festive appearance and the seedy male audience with half open shirts and naked feet in dirty sandals. Two waiters in white shirts and neckties brought drinks (75 rupees for a double whisky, Indian brand).
Two of the girls were prettier than the others. They also danced in a livelier way. Their eyes were permanently turned towards their own reflections in the mirrored walls behind the chairs. Little in the attitude of the male clientele betrayed that they even noticed the girls - apart from the ten rupee notes they handed them at regular intervals.
I got one of the waiters to go outside on the stairs with me on order to be able to talk with him (conversation was impossible inside due to the music). I asked him if I could take a girl out from Surai? "Yes, yes, no problem!" "How much do I have to pay?" "Ask the girl." "Do they speak English?" "No."
But I did not take any girl out. My general impression with this place is that the price ought to be low, given the long drive and the depressive surroundings. The girls looked nice and interesting but the language creates a barrier. And this is not a place where you should get drunk and stagger away after closing hours. I did not feel the slightest bit threatened but some of the types in here did not look nice.
Later some other informants stated that the waiter on the stairs must have misunderstood my question, maybe because of a lack of knowledge of English. "The bar guests cannot take the dancing girls out from Surai. They cannot even touch them. Maybe the waiter meant that you can make private arrangements with a girl after closing time when she is off duty."
You will have to check yourself which is correct. And please submit your findings here!
Date: Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Subject: Hotel Green Star, Colaba, Mumbai
One night on the way to my lodging in Bombay's Colaba area I was approached by one of the many touts that are always around in Asian cities, especially in tourist areas. I let myself lead astray by his offer to introduce me to a place with "college girls, modern girls."
It seems like there is a lot of prostitution and brothel activity in Colaba even if you do not see it when you walk around in the neighborhood. The tout led me down some streets to a place I would never have noticed by myself: Hotel Green Star (49/51, Mathuradas Estate No 2, 1st Floor, 10/12 Mandlik Road, opp. Taj Post Office, Colaba Causeway, Bombay-400 039. Phone 282 60 75 or 283 20 36).
We went up the stairs to the first floor where I was asked to sit down in a worn and tattered sofa in a dirty, rather big room. It looked like a living room whose owner had moved and taken everything valuable with him, leaving the carpet and a few broken pieces of furniture to whoever cares to have them.
A man appeared and presented himself as "Mr Abdul". He offered me a girl for the night. I asked him carefully: "How much?" "8000 rupees." "You are nuts. I won't pay that amount." "How much are you willing to pay?" "5000 and no more." "Okay."
He claps his hands and four young girls step in. They are all teenagers. Abdul mentions their names which are hard to understand as they come trough the doorway. One of them is wearing a purple dress and is decidedly prettier than the others. I choose her.
Now followed a lengthy wait which Abdul exploited to get more money out of my wallet. I had caught fire with the girl in purple and this was used against me. Abdul himself was to have 500 Rupees more, he said, then he would see to it that the girl would give better service. And I gave him damned 500 Rupees extra. The tout, the man from the street, reappeared and weaned for money for his part of the fun. He got 50 rupees and went away mumbling about the 200 he should have had. I asked Abdul how much the room for the night would cost? "1200." - Now my patience was exhausted and I exploded in a way that made him say: "1000 for fully airconditioned room, good room."
A taxi drove us all (Abdul, the girl and me) through a few streets to a hotel-like place with rooms on second floor. At long last I was alone with the girl in a small, unadorned room with a swirling fan in the ceiling and an airconditioner, noicy like a car engine. A double bed, a low table, a shower closet. Very little floor space.
Her name was Bawna, she was 19, from Hyderabad. She asked for permission to order a meal and I let her do that. While she was eating, I asked her a few questions. I had to turn off the airconditioner to even hear her answers, let alone understand them:
"I have been working at Green Star for one month. I plan to go on for another month or two, then I stop. I have finished 12th level college. I am here because my sister needs one lakh (100.000) Rupees for her dowry (wedding gift). Here I can make that amount in 2-3 months.
Usually I have two or three costumers every night - short time, one hour. Most of them are Indian men. I have only had three Westerners before you, one American, two Europeans. I don't like Indian men, they grab me hard, it hurts.
The money I make from my work are divided 50/50 between Green Star and myself. I won't look for another place because the girls are treated well here. We do not have to fuck the owner which is the normal thing at other places. Abdul treats us with respect, like a brother. It was one of my friends, a girl, who recommended Green Star to me. She also taught me the know-how of the job.
Yes, my sister knows where her dowry comes from. - If I have been with a man before I began at Green Star? Don't ask!"
The meal was over. She put metal tray and bowls aside, and we began to undress. She was stout in a wholesome way, and she was a well shaped young woman. She did not seem to fully understand a man's body. Never in my life has anyone (including myself) succeeded in putting on a condom over the foreskin, without drawing it back. But she did just that. So I had to show her in order to make it possible for her to demonstrate her fellatio skills. She was good at that, wrapping her full lips around my dick and bopping up and down with her pretty head turned in the right direction, letting me see her at work. A fine, beautiful sight.
Her cunt hairs confirmed that she had only been in the business for about a month: short, cropped black hairs like a newly grown beard. In India, decent women remove the pubic hairs completely.
Then I had her from behind. I had a fairly good orgasm after which she promptly fell asleep in my arms. One hour later I woke her because I wanted to do it again. At first she refused to awake but ended up masturbating me until I had one more orgasm.
Again she fell asleep, stark naked. There was no blanket to cover our bodies. After a while I rose and quietly put on my clothes. I watched the sleeping brown girl for some moments and left the room and walked home to my own hotel.
All in all an interesting experience. But much too expensive.
Date: Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Subject: Topaz - Bombay
Topaz Restaurant & Bar (address: 416, Grant Road, Near Novelty Cinema, Mumbai-400 007, Phone No 308 6762 or 307 7644 or 307 6546) is an expensive (soft drinks 180 Rupees, whisky 200 Rupees), luxuriously decorated establishment with finely dressed dancing girls doing a careless pop version of old fashioned Indian dance. When I paid a brief visit to the place they were less occupied with dancing and more busy passing fingers through their long, jet black manes while enjoying their reflected images in the mirrors on the opposite wall - and laughing together in a wat that looked somewhat "hammed out" to me. An audience of men dwell with drinks and snacks in easy lounge chairs looking with inexpressive faces at the girls. 10-Rupee notes, often two or three put together, pass at intervals from gentleman's to lady's hand.
Topaz is divided into two sections. First you step into a smaller, narrower lounge room, where 3-4 girls are dancing. It is easy to miss the passage leading from the 'entrance room' to another and larger 'amphi theater' where 7-8 women dance before a male audience looking down at the small round stage. Here each lady has her own numbered safety box with an slender opening for the rupee notes she collects during the night.
I asked one of the servants: "Does any if these ladies speak English?" "No, no, only Hindi," came the quick and immediate answer. I doubt that. These women had upper class manners. None of them looked like low caste. Some of them has undoubtedly learned English according to my experiences with India.
"Can I take one of them out from here?" I asked. "No. Only looking, not take out," answered the same servant. Which obviously was a lie. I had just watched a deal being struck right in front of my chair between a Chinese man and beautiful dancer around the age of 24. She made inviting smiles and gestures in the direction of the exit, money notes were stacked and placed on the table in front of him. Only looking, my ass! I left Topaz with a feeling of having visited a less than foreigner-friendly place.
Or have I misunderstood something? Can any of the Indian contributors to W.S.G. explain more and better?
Date: Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Subject: The Dream brothel, Mumbai
There is a whorehouse named "The Dream" (address: Gummath Rao Bldg, Gr. Floor, 2nd Navalkar Lane, Near Harikesh Hospital, V.P. Road, Parthana Samaj, Mumbai-400 004).
25 women work here, the age is from teenagers to the far side of 30. The degree of beauty also various from pretty to ugly. They are waiting for you in a room steeped in blue light.
The male personnel here could better its behavior. They are like monkeys trying to steel bananas. The manager showed delusions of grandeur with the prices he demanded for Kiran, 26, from Trivandrum in Kerala. After much haggling he ended up writhing 2500 rupees from me for two hours with her in a low-ceilinged room with a small bathing section, fan and air-con. Add to that a demand for money for "room service" (i.e. the jerk who brought the drink) plus an uniquely unpleasant man, a ghostlike, backlit figure appearing in the doorway demanding a "gift" of a hundred rupees in a hoarse, rude voice. He didn't get them. He was too unsexy.
Kiran started out by downing half a flask of vodka (Indian made and imitated) with Lemca grape tonic. She was actually quite pretty and spoke a good English, but the atmosphere of the house disturbed the experience to much. "Beer and vodka cools the body," she explained. "Whisky makes you feel hot." Maybe so. All of those liquors add to your body fat, honey. It shows on that belly of yours.
"My father has died and I must give 10.000 rupees every month to sustain my mother and the rest of my family. I am divorced and have only highschool education. My friend Arun told me about this place. Lakshmi who work here taught me the know-how of the work. I had to pay her 10.000 for that. Sometimes I have six customers per night, sometimes four, sometimes only one. Ramadan is a bad month for business, election times likewise. - I tell my mother I have job in Mumbai. I want her and my brother to be safe. It does not matter what happens to myself."
"I can make up to 25.000 a month here on a good month. 10.000 goes to my mother, 10.000 to myself to pay expenses, the rest (if there is any) I put in the bank. I sleep here. It is too expensive to rent outside. Two girls share each room here."
"I am a Christian. I do not make any plans for my future after I become too old for this work. One's future will be according to what God writes on one's brow."
While she talked the rest of the vodka disappeared. She was quite good at sucking dick, like an experienced whore. If this place could handle its mayor handicap - the male personnel - I would be able to recommend it.
Date: Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Subject: Crown Anchor in Bombay
Crown Anchor (at Merewheather Road, Colaba, behind Taj Mahal Hotel), open from 18.30 till after midnight. If you do not know what kind of a place this is, you can easily pass by without ever finding out.
However, once inside there is no chance to miss the nature of this bar. It's a long room with a rather low ceiling, so full of restaurant-style tables there is hardly any space left to move about. Subdued lamps cast a soft red light in the semi-darkness, noicy live music from a small stage at the far end makes conversation difficult.
The prices for drinks fluctuate quite a lot at this place. One night a coke costs 80 Rupees, the nexts 100. And the servant is in the habit of insisting on a tipping. You are not expected to buy any 'lady drink', though.
Soon you will be contacted by one of the many women available. Their looks vary from plain to attractive. Apart from the musical entertainment the foreigner will meet with an insurmountable language problem. These girls speak only Indian languages. That does not keep your new found company from repeating the word "hotel" again and again with a nice smile. As you look around, you will hardly see any men of any other nationality than Indian.
I talked with the one girl here who speaks English, bought her out for 1 hour: 1200 Rupees, 210 Rupees for the room, 100 for the taxi to the one hotel they will permit you to use: nearby Simla Calcutta hotel. Never a hotel chosen by the costumer for the sake of the girl's safety. "Sometimes a girl is driven far away to a place she does not know and raped by 4-5 men." - The room is bare but clean. There is a bathroom with a shower and a double bed, nothing else.
"At the Crown Anchor there are girls from Gujarat, from Calcutta. I am from Madras. Practically all of India is represented here. Some of us are daughters of prostitutes who became pregnant as an occupational hasard. They have never known any other life. I myself go to commercial school in the daytime and come here at night. I have to in order to support my two younger sisters and myself and keep us all in school. Our mother has died, our father has married again and does not care for his three children. A friend of mine recommended this place to me."
"The bar pays us a monthly wage of 10.000 Rupees, the same as an army officer or a politician. However it is not much considering the expenses we have - lodging and transport is expensive in Munbai. For that money every one of us must have at least one costumer per night. The girls here are not allowed to say no to a man unless she has very good reasons. She is fired if one or two nights pass without her making a deal with a man. The costumer pays at the bar and the money stays there: 1200 for an hour, 3000 for a night."
"An advantage is the protection the bar offers. A costumer who behaves grocely to a girl, or one that is perverted or otherwise unpleasant becomes invisible to the girls. He is simply ignored. We talk together about the men who come here. There are things I refuse to do. I won't do it with the mouth or without a condom. - The costumer on his side has the right to complain to the bar if I steal from him or disappear in the middle of the night he has paid for."
"AIDS? All of us have heard about it. But some of the girls put money before safety. If a costumer pays them to do it without a condom they say yes. It is a waste of time to try to persuade them to do otherwise."
"What I think of the men who come here? I don't like them."
Date: Tue, 16 Jun 1998 Subject: New Bombay brothel
A new brothel has opened under the name MAUSAM at Daulatram Mansion, 3rd Floor, Kittridge Road, Near Sassoon Dock, Colaba, Mumbai-400 005 (Phone No 204 0207 or 282 3512).
I went there and liked the place for its cleanliness. A lineup of about 12 girls - my guess: from 19 to 29 years of age - many of them pretty. I chose Meena, 22, because she was actually beautiful.
I paid 2000 Rupees for 1 hour with her plus 100 for so-called room service. I was informed that 2 hours would cost 3000 Rupees. There wasn't much unpleasant haggling, maybe becuase I had made a firm decision in beforehand not t opay more than 2000, no matter what.
Meena claimed that she had just arrived from Hyderabad to Bombay and Mausam the day before. She spoke only Telugu which made communicating with her very difficult. She used to work in the rice fields and showed damaged toenails and minor scars on feet and legs as tokens. I do doubt, however, that she is a complete newcomer to prostitution. She was too self assured and merry for that. She ended up giving me a delicious bangle-rattling jack-off. I am not sure that she is beautiful in the eyes of an Indian man - quite dark, quite small - but I found her to be a sophisticated beauty.
Does anyone know whether I was made to pay too much? My own impression was that 2000 is not far off the regular market price, and that it is a good idea to make it clear from the very beginning that you will not exceed this or that limit of money. Prepare to walk out even if your desires cry out for the girl in front of you if you find the price higher than you deem fair.
