AN (ALMOST) A-Z Of Kink in the city


There’s nothing like a latex catsuit (B10,500) or a corset (B2,500) to spice things up in the bedroom. These and more products are available from 1.) Planet Latex ( The showroom is in Chiang Mai, but you can also order online or reach them at 081-892-7959.


First of all, we hope you’re using them! The stuff you pick up at 7-Eleven or Boots is fine. For some variety, though, try 2.) From super-thin (0.03mm) Japanese condoms (B80 each) to 3.) Play O “Orgasmic Gel for Women” (B495), this website is packed with some sexy surprises.


Of course, size doesn’t matter. You look great. Really. Now if you simply must get that penis augmentation (B65,000) or boob job (B60,000), we recommend you do it at a reputable clinic like Yanhee (54 Charansanitwong Rd., 02-879-0300.

Free HIV testing

The best encouragement to continue playing it safe is to know your status. Get tested today at free HIV testing clinics, Anonymous Clinic (Thai Red Cross Society, Ratchadamri Rd., 02-256-4107/9 ext.109, 209. and The Silom Clinic (3/F, Bangkok Christian Hospital, Silom Rd., 02-634-2917. Open Tue-Sat 4-10pm.

Inflatable dolls

The Love Body (B4,990) is a life-size brunette blow-up doll available from, with some sexy black lingerie thrown in for free.


Although Bangkok lacks Victoria’s Secret, the affordable X-Sizes Outlet (Sukhumvit Soi 22, opposite Imperial Queen's Park Hotel, 02-611-8029. Open Mon-Sat 11:30am-10pm) is here to save the day. This shop boasts a wide range of sexy undergarments, from G-strings to corsets. And we haven’t forgotten you gents, This Shop For Men (2/F, Terminal 21, Sukhumvit Soi 19, 02-254-9470. BTS Asoke.

Work up the guts to wear them, and you’ll be sure to impress your lady or guy.

Pole dancing

For female professionals (of the office kind), pole dancing is a great way to de-stress, get fit and perhaps take your bedroom skills up a notch. Give this noble art a whirl at Rumpuree Dance Studio (5/F, Amarin Plaza, Ploenchit Rd., 08-1430-6684. BTS Chit Lom.

Order online from, 089-968-6778.


We were absolutely crushed that the US Food & Drug Administration rejected female Viagra, saying the risks outweigh the benefits. Or is it that the FDA is full of Mormons who can’t take the idea of endless female orgasms? Meanwhile, men with erectile dysfunction can still pop the old purple pill (from B450) or the cheaper generic, 5.) Kamagra, which comes in gel form (B70). Or try to get your hands on the new locally made Sidegra, think safer Viagra which comes at just B45 a pop. Get a prescription from your doctor or check out the pharmacies in and around Soi Patpong or Soi Thaniya. BTS Sala Daeng.


It’s no longer taboo to have a professional tend to your bush. Head to 6.) Reveal Wax Salon (Thonglor Soi 13, 02-712-8209. Open Tue-Sun 10:30am-8:30pm. for a wax job that can cover (or uncover, rather) any and all of your intimate parts. There are beach trips coming up so we highly recommend the “all off” Brazilian/Boyzilian (from B1,130) for a super smooth touch.

The Pro: Tanapol Kaewpring

Currently a fashion photographer for L’Officiel Magazine, Tanapol Kaewpring’s artistic work is very diffent: highly conceptual, provocative and delivering thoughtful observations on change, growth and destruction.

Are there a lot of photography collectors in Bangkok at the moment?
Photography-wise, not so much compared to other types of art. It’s been growing for a long time, but it still isn’t mainstream.
How do you balance your editorial, commercial and artistic work?
It’s quite difficult. When I’m doing editorial or commercial work, I’m doing what others want—agencies, creatives and clients. But in my personal work, I answer my own questions and meet my own goals. There’s a similar thought process, but the objective is different. In the end, I think you’ve got to choose what you really want to do, whether to go commercial or delve deeper into fine art. Now I’m learning both, but I definitely would like to further my career on the art side of things.
Which Thai photographers do you like?
The first name that comes to mind is always fashion photographer Kornkrit Jianpinidnun. I was one of the first people to follow his work, so I’ve seen his growth and improvement, and it has inspired me.
Where do you recommend people go to see good photography?
I love Manit Sriwanichpoom’s Kathmandu Gallery. It really is a gallery for photography, unlike many others that mix different types of art. They also have high standards in selecting whose work to showcase. It’s always good.
Can you make a living selling your photos?
You can’t live by just doing that. You have to slowly build your profile, gain connections, have a clear stand point in your work and constantly improve to build a following. It’s really hard to survive solely on selling your art. You might get B20,000-30,000 for each picture, but chances are you won’t be selling on a regular basis.
Any tips for aspiring photographers?
Define yourself; photography is like telling a story. Choose which colors you want to use to tell your story. Take pictures according to your tale. Let the camera roll and keep going. You need to have a heart. Don’t just enrol in some course then get paranoid that you need better equipment. Everything depends on you.
What was the inspiration for your latest work?
Personal experience. I’m currently doing some soul searching, trying to choose my path. In the end, I can’t escape from my thoughts about my career, my family etc. It’s my relationship with myself and everything that surrounds me that inspires me.

The instagram master: Athipan Wongsuebyut

Athipan Wongsuebyut, better known by his Instagram name @awnoom, is a graphic designer whose minimalist snapshots have a following of 180,000.

Has Instagram changed the way you see things?
Definitely, Instagram collects lots of amazing pictures from all over the world. These pictures inspire me. It also widens my perspective and makes me care more about composition.
How did you get so many followers?
I really have no idea. I’ve been on Instagram for two years; the first year I was like everybody else and had about 60 friends. Then last year, I moved to work in Songkhla and started posting pictures that I took there. I was surprised because many strangers would “like” my pictures and start following me. I owe it to my friends @pketron and @chrisconnolly who introduced me to @josh, a member of the Instagram team who interviewed me for the Instagram blog.
How do you decide which pictures to post?
I think a good picture is one that can effectively tell a story. The one thing that’s important is to really communicate with the viewer. Personally, I place lots of importance on composition.
Is there any pressure when you have so many followers?
Nope, if there was I would stop using Instagram. Actually, I think it’s challenging in a good way, especially when you see great pictures from others. It makes you want to improve yourself.
What are your favorite filters?
Valencia and Hudson.
What apps do you tend to use to take pictures?
I often use Snapseed to edit the lighting and color tone of a picture. But mostly I just use the camera from the iPhone. I turn on the HDR mode to level out the amount of contrast which makes it easy to work with other filter apps. The grid option is also helpful when you want precision. But there are times when I take pictures directly with Instagram, too. It’s quick and you can see exactly how a picture’s going to look, so it helps with the composition of a picture.

The Street Photographer: Luke Satoru

With photography becoming such an ubiquitous, throwaway activity, Luke Satoru is one of those photographers who would like to reconnect with the meaningful craft it once was. He’s reverted to shooting film and has helped bring over The Invisible Photographer workshop from Singapore ( to assist Bangkok’s amateur photographers approach this instantaneous art in a more deliberate, thoughtful manner.

Why do people come to the workshops?
They’re either new to street photography, or have tried it a bit, but need to see what is missing in their work. The first part of the workshop is references, showing different styles, and then a quick tutorial on your camera—zone focusing, settings, that sort of stuff.  People are then asked to shoot at least at a 35mm [wide] focal range. A lot of people don’t get close enough.
Is a wide-angle lens key to taking good pictures?
Not necessarily. One participant had this ability to find the quiet beauty in things. And she could play up to that and not get really close. But the workshop helps you figure what works for you.
Is Bangkok a street photography mecca?
Yeah, some cities have great color and activity. New York is like that. Bangkok, too. We have friends based in Singapore and they much prefer here. The first workshop was mostly people who flew in, but the second one was people living in Bangkok. I think their work was better, they were more comfortable with the city.
Why do you shoot film?
I was shooting jewelry for my work, then sports I was involved in—MMA [Mixed Martial Arts], Jiu jitsu. Then I kind of hit a wall. I went back to shooting black and white film. Everyone works so hard, you need to find something to pull you back into the moment. Shooting with a rangefinder camera, you need to take the time. Also, people ask, “What is that?” when they see me shooting. When they see that it’s a film camera, it starts a conversation, and people are more open.
Luke Satoru is a jewelry designer ( and runs a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu gym (see

The Conservationist: Manit Sriwanichpoom

Manit Sriwanichpoom is the man behind the Pink Man photography series, for which he gained international fame. He’s been busy with a lot of other projects (he was director of photography for the banned film Shakespeare Must Die). But one of his pet projects has been the Forgotten Masters series, where he unearths old Thai photographers and showcases their works at his small Kathmandu Gallery.

How did the project start?
I used to teach photography and I found that all our knowledge relied on the West. Why do we look to somewhere else, not here? Anek Nawikamun had made a book on the history of early Thai photography, which goes from photography’s arrival here, up to Rama VI or VII. But after that, nothing. So I thought my starting point should be from 1932, the arrival of democracy. I wanted to see how photography has helped to promote democracy.
How does photography play a political role?
Once you have photography, you prove that you exist in this society. That’s why people go to photo studios to get their pictures done, to register their identity, to get identification documents. You look at the pictures we showed from Pornsak Sakdaenprai; they are photographs from Phi Mai taken in the mid 1960s, and you can see how people realized their identity through them.
Is this also a call to preserve our photographic heritage?
Thailand has lost a lot of important evidence of its history. We didn’t really see how our own story was important. Thai history mostly gives importance to the monarchy, or religion. When you learn history, there’s hardly any stories about commoners. So people did not keep photographs, diary, documents. It wasn’t in the culture. When I started to look for photographs not even that old, maybe 30-40 years, it was very hard for me to find anything. People just threw them away.
What’s your take on mobile digital photography?
Instead of writing, people take photographs. It’s very difficult to say whether this is good or bad, but it’s a way to communicate. It’s hard to remember any of the stuff being photographed, because there’s so much of it. I think people are still looking for inspiration. People still value good products. So these forgotten masters, it’s good training and can help people swim against this flood of images.
Have you been influenced by these “forgotten masters?”
Sometimes, when I start a project, the story of an old master comes to me. When I worked on my nude series [Obscene], I would say I was inspired by ML Toy Xoomsai. From his work, I could see how his generation talked about women. And it’s important that the current generation see this perspective.
Currently, Disco Buddha by Kamthorn Paowattanasuk is on show at Kathmandu Gallery. Photo credits: Pornsak Sakdaenprai (top two), ML Toy Xoomsai (bottom).

1.) Samsung EX2F

Specs: 12.4MP 1/1.7” sensor
F1.4 24-80mm lens 3.3x zoom
3.0” Swivel AMOLED display
ISO 80-3200 extendable to 12,800
1080/30p video
Wi-Fi, magnesium body
Price: Approximately US$549 (B16,895)
Why it’s hot: The lense’s incredibly wide aperture is the best in its class; that means better low-light capacity and nice blurry backgrounds on portraits. Wi-Fi is a nice touch, too.

2.) Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100

Specs: 20MP 1” sensor
F1.8-4.9mm stabilized lens
ISO 125-6400
1080p60 video or 1080i with the ability to shoot 17MP stills without interrupting video recording
Price: Approximately US$649 (B19,972)
Why it’s hot: It’s a compact, and hardly bigger than a Canon S100, but its sensor is positively huge, making its low-light capacities close to a mirror-less system camera. A real technological breakthrough.

3.) Sony Alpha NEX-5R

Specs: Mirror-less
16.1 MP sensor
3” touch screen
ISO 100-25600
1920x1080/60p video
Wi-Fi, HDMI, USB 2.0
Price: Body only for $650 (about B20,500), available in October.
Why it’s hot: The latest update to Sony’s now very popular mirror-less NEX series gets faster autofocus and Wi-Fi.

4.) Fujifilm X-E1

Specs: 16-megapixel X-Trans
2.4-megapixel OLED electronic viewfinder
XF18-55mm (27-84mm equivalent) f/2.8-4
Price: Body only for $999.95 (B30,773), or bundled with the XF18-55mm lens for $1,399.95 (B43,083)
Why it’s hot: The old X-Pro 1 (B59,000) remains possibly the best-looking digital camera out there short of buying a Leica. The auto-focus was a bit sluggish in low-light, though. And guess what, its successor, the new X-E1, is meant to fix just that.

5.) Nikon D600

Specs: Full frame DSLR
24.7 MP sensor
3.2” LCD screen
ISO 100-6400
1080/309 HD video
Price: B72,500
Why it’s hot: Nikon finally has its own semi-affordable full-frame DSLR. In fact, it’s even cheaper than Canon’s 5D Mark III, and so loaded with features it almost seems too good to be true.

TOUCH Photography

Nikon Coolpix S800c

What is it: A Wi-Fi only Nikon compact camera slapped onto an Android operating system (version 2.3.3). That means you can edit your pics in any Android app you like using the touch screen and upload them to social media sites without even going through your phone—or just use it to play Angry Birds. It can’t place calls though
The specs: 3.5-inch 854 x 480 OLED screen, 16mp camera, HD (1080p) video, 10x zoom.
When can I get it: Available for pre-order in the USA for US$350, gray market imports should pop up at Pantip soon after its release.

Samsung EK-GC-100

What is it: Just like the Nikon, this Samsung camera is paired with an Android-based touch-screen device that will run any Android photo app you want. But this device’s specs are better the Nikon in every way: super sharp screen, twice the zoom, and 3G/4G functionality. That last point is key, because it means that although this camera can’t make calls, it can upload pictures without Wi-Fi, and that’s really what makes mobile photography so much fun.
The specs: 4.8-inch, 1,280 x 720-pixel display. 21x zoom (23-480mm).
When can I get it: Due for an Oct release. Price TBA.

Nokia Lumia 808 and 920

What is it: If you thought Nokia had gone the way of Blackberry, think again. The Finnish manufacturer has just put out two sleek handsets with class-leading cameras. The 808’s 41-megapixel sensor creates incredibly sharp images with five times the detail you’d get on an iPhone 4s. (Too bad it’s not a great a smartphone.) The 920 only has an 8-mp camera but its optical stabilization allows for smooth video and stellar low-light photography (and it’s a better smartphone).
The specs: The 808 runs a sluggish Symbian Belle OS on a measly 640 x 360 screen but it does have that 41-mp camera. The 920 runs Windows 8 mobile on a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU (same as the top of the line Galaxy S III) and a sharp 1,280 x 768 LCD display. Now if they could just slap the 808’s camera on the 920...
When can I get it: The 808 is available for B18,900. The 920’s pricing won’t even be released until late 2012.
