It was a surprising question, and one that caught me off guard sipping my coffee in Terminal 21. Usually I get asked for directions to MBK or the Grand Palace, but the boob slapping joint? I nearly fell off my chair.
And then I remembered. In late 2011, I saw a program on Thai television about a woman who slapped various parts of the body to make them plumper, and might I add, got paid for it. The program feature largely centered on demonstrating her technique for making breasts bigger, as after, the obvious target market is Asian girls longing for bigger boobs.
After a number of breast slapping sessions, dedicated clients reported an increase in cup size and plumpness….hmmm, couldn't possible have anything to do with inflammation due to consistently tapping the breasts until bruised, could it?
Anyway, seems like word has reached the states, and who knows, a good old breast slapping might soon be as popular as the traditional Thai massage! Poor Thailand, as if “sexual activity” hasn't done you a huge global image disservice already, looks like this charlatan might be adding to the injury.
The two humbly breasted females shyly asked me if there was a breast massage place nearby where they do “breast tapping”. Of course, I had no idea and said they might care to ask at the spa across the way. But I was given my next blog post idea right there in the lack of cleavage.
I guess it has to be safer than implants after the recent sub-standard silicone scandal in Europe, and substantially cheaper. I am sure a bit of slapping stimulation can't hurt, and may even be quite pleasurable, but bigger boobs long term, come on, this is a con.
If you have no idea what I am talking about, then watch this video of the holistic therapy in question.
