Easy Ways to Recognize Ladyboys
From a distance, one of the first indicators of a Ladyboy is her height. The average height of Thai men is about 4 inches taller than women so Ladyboys are usually taller than their cisgendered counterparts. Obviously, someone’s height, and most of these other features isn’t a perfect test but it is a good starting point as you walk towards some ladies outside a bar or in a nightlife area.
Some Ladyboys might attempt to make their voices sound higher but not all will do this. Either way, a Ladyboy’s voice will sound a bit deeper and fuller than expected, or it might sound artificially high. Ladyboys also generally have better English skills than many other workers you will encounter around the nightlife scene, which can be helpful in many situations.
Broad Shoulders/Narrow Hips
Men usually have broad shoulders and narrow hips compared to most women who tend to have a more narrow shoulders and broad hips. Because of this, Ladyboys will often have proportions similar to a man. If you are around the nightlife areas, Ladyboys will usually be wearing fairly skimpy outfits so it shouldn’t be too difficult to quickly take a look at the overall proportions of their body.
Once you are near a group of ladies, you can look for an Adam’s apple. If you see one, they are most likely a Ladyboy. But that doesn’t mean not having an Adam’s apple guarantees a cisgendered woman because there are surgeries to lessen the protrusion of it by shaving down the bone. So you should only rely on this feature in conjunction with others in this list.
Generally speaking, men have larger hands than women. If the woman’s hand seems bigger than expected, there is a chance that she is a Ladyboy. There are, however, women with larger than average hand sizes so be aware of that as well. And size would be the only indicator in regards to hands because having soft, manicured hands with painted fingernails is pretty easily (and cheaply) accomplished in Thailand.
On average, the breast size of Thai women is typically on the smaller end. But since a Ladyboy usually has breast implants, they tend to decide on larger than average sizes (if they’re working in nightlife).
With the aforementioned skimpy clothing, it shouldn’t be very difficult to figure out the size of the woman’s breasts. But remember that anybody can have breast implants so this might not be the best way to tell.
Most ladyboys that work in the nightlife industry are pre-operation in the crotch area. This is what sets them apart from their cisgendered counterparts and is what most potential customers are looking for in a Ladyboy. With their revealing outfits, the ladyboys will need to tuck themselves. This leads to a visible protrusion in some cases and can be used as an identifier.
This isn’t about a negative attitude but a more boisterous attitude that a Ladyboy might have. Ladyboys who are working nightlife tend to be louder and more flamboyant than others. If you’re in a nightlife area, Ladyboys can be a bit more aggressive in their propositions or a bit bolder in their conversations. Overall, they do seem to be having more fun at all times!
