I try to provide nice guide-articles here in Discreet Manila (like my series of posts on bathhouses) but I can’t cover everything Metro Manila has to offer. So I’m quite happy to point you to other places on the Net where you can find more information. One of the more informative blogs I’ve come across last year is the Manila Gay Guide.
Ignoring the fact that the blog’s title is a ripoff of MGG’s old slogan, the site contains plenty of articles to help you enjoy the Manila PLU scene. Some choice articles is this one detailing how gay massage parlors operate, and this blog entry providing a nice introduction into popular types of cruising venues in the metro. I think the specialty of Manila Gay Guide is the massage parlor scene. Fully more than half of the posts are about individual parlors or the industry in general.
While the site’s last post was way back in March, I think that the site is still useful in the information it provides. Then again, the gay massage parlor industry here in Metro Manila is very volatile so it’s likely that the information on individual spas would be outdated by now. But, I think there is a market for such information so I encourage anyone to take the baton and start their own “Manila Gay Guide” blog.
