Just Curious About Kuala Lumpur

Recommended Posts

I found this at utopia-asia.com, or follow this link since they seem to have found a way to keep from being quoted http://www.utopia-asia.com/malakl.htm:

Gay life in the capitol is widespread and surprisingly sophisticated, but still largely underground due to lingering antique British colonial law and Islamic disapproval. Many gay businesses have morphed into creative hybrids to remain "within the pale": yogatoriums, aerobisaunas, massageaurants or spaversities with darkgyms and karaocuzzis. Mainstream businesses now openly cultivate gay and lesbian customers who loyally dispense pink ringgit at the growing number of mixed venues that welcome them. Gay or lesbian nights at straight clubs are common. And, of course, the Internet is the medium of choice for the discreet and closeted.

Interesting. I was chatting with a young man who lives there and he seemed to give me the impression that gay life was easily accepted by others. Maybe it has more to do with his social circle than the city itself.

I have been to KL several times and enjoy my stay there. The gay scene is not as open as Thailand or other places in the area. You can find gay massage boys for sex and they are sexy and adorable but it is not as open as other countries nearby. Even the gay places I went were not easy to find and mostly by word of month. It is a Muslin country and some of the homophobic ideas are apparent. That being said, I have several friends from there who are gay and have no problems. But, their families are very wealthy and of Chinese decent.

Now that is cause for concern.

I have a friend who loves KL. He is on GayRomeo and has a full danced card with options for multiple non-rent dates daily, if he so chooses. He tells me that Malaysian guyss are a bit different in personality from Thai men.

I have no doubt your friend is correct. The men are different in every Asian country. Cambodians are quite different from the Vietnamese and from Laos but they are more or less alike in Buddhism being the religion. As OZ says KL is mostly Muslim so gays have been repressed for many years and only recently have some of the Dragonian laws changed.

KL is a nice place to visit but it pales in comparison to BKK in every way that I can think of and especially in the availability of men for sex for pay and for free. If you were going to spend 30 days in SE Asia and sex was one of your main focuses. I would spend 2 days in KL, 3 in Cambodia, 4 in Vietnam, 2 in Laos and 19 days in Thailand.

The shopping mall Pavillion is nicknamed Gayvillion by gay people in KL. Just have a drink in Starbuck and you will know what I mean.

If you want to look for boys in KL, there are 2 easy ways without going to massage places (mostly in Cheras):

1 Turn on Grindr in Bukit Bintang area. Many topless guys who give their mobile number in their profile are escorts, the rest normal people.

2. Gayromeo (or planetromeo since gayromeo is blocked in Malaysia). Go to Users and view the recently registered profiles. 90% of profiles with topless photos are escorts. You can tell when they put down their mobile number as well.

The only thing I do not like is the extensive use of Photoshop...

The quoted post is quite old but as a brief update on seeking escorts I would suggest that you try Craig's List.  In the Men for Men section you will find many boys looking to make a few dollars.

The Back Page equivalent in KL is kualalumpur.cracker.com. You’ll find MB’s in both the men 4 men and the male escort sections. 

BTW the Grand Mellineum Hotel is next to the  Pavillon. Behind it is the Day Thermos one of the more convenient if not the best of KL’s saunas.

Update:  The cracker website was seized in April as part of the action on Backpage.  There are still quite a few MB's (money boys) posting on Grindr and Scruff.  Can't wait to get back to my apartment there next spring.
