Spotting The Lady Boy

In case you’ve missed it, I put together a fun little game where I took five pictures of Thai models/actresses and five pictures of lady boys and asked people to guess which is which. If you haven’t taken the test already, get your butt over there and give it a shot. No fair peeking 🙂

With nearly 5000 votes counted I think we’ve achieved a large enough sample size to find some interesting patterns. I’ve been quite surprised at the results so far. I thought I would share them here.

1 Nong Poy
Lady Boy
About 43% of people guess Nong Poy’s gender correctly.

Nong Poy is one of Thailand’s most famous ladyboy models.

2 Pum Dolaros
Surprisingly only 39% of people guess Pum’s gender correctly.

Pum Dolaros is a famous Thai actress and model.

3 Tanyarat Jirapatpakon
Lady Boy
A little over 52% of people can guess Tanyarat’s gender correctly.

Tanyarat Jirapatpakon was crowned Miss International Queen 2007. And by “queen” they mean transexual/ladyboy.

4 Areeya
Lady Boy
Areeya doesn’t fool many people as evidenced by the fact that 88% of people pick her gender correctly.

Areeya is a well known ladyboy model who has her own adult oriented website.

5 Oa
Lady Boy
A little less than 80% of people guessed Oa’s gender correctly.

Oa is a new up and coming adult model staring in lady boy films/shoots.

6 Ople Ausanee
Ople is correctly identified by 72% of the test takers.

Ople Ausanee is a model who has appeared in Thai Penthouse Magazine.

7 Seephrai Mungphanklang
Only 27% guessed poor Seephrai’s gender correctly making her the most misidentified in the bunch.

Seephrai Mungphanklang a.k.a DJ Nakadia is a famous Thai DJ. She also models but because of her Isaan looks she isn’t as popular with Thais as she is with Westerners.

8 Lila Boonyasak
Lila’s gender was guessed correctly about half the time.

Lila Boonyasak a.k.a Cherman Boonyasak a.k.a Ploy is a popular actress who has been appearing in films for quite a few years. She was voted one of the 10 sexiest woman in the world in the Thai edition of FHM.

9 Random Ladyboys at Bed Supperclub
Lady Boy
The random lady boys at Bed were guessed correctly 70% of the time.

I don’t know their names but they are described by photographer Bangkok Angel as “2 Ladyboys (or if you wanna talk Bangkok Slang: Chicks with Dicks 🙂 at Bed Supperclub Bangkok.”

10 Aom Phiyada
I thought Aom’s very lady-like features would poll better here but she was only guessed correctly 57% of the time.

Aom Phiyada is a popular talk show host and stars in various soap operas.
