Ping pong shows are a staple of the Thai sex tourism industry, ping pong shows can be found in the various red-light districts of Thailand, namely Bangkok (Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza, Patpong), Pattaya, and Phuket (Patong Beach).
The show consists of women using their pelvic muscles to either hold, eject, or blow objects from their vaginal cavity. Such objects include: really long string, whistles, pens, cigarettes, candles, darts, chopsticks and of course ping pong balls. A male member of the audience may be brought onto the dance platform to hold a balloon while a dart is shot at it, or the girl may do a shoot around the table at balloons tied to each customer's chair. Another activity is the shooting of goldfish into a bowl, or stuffing a rather large frog inside to see how long she can keep it in.
The shows generally take place in a strip club with scantily clad girls dancing during the breaks between shows. Tourists are brought in by employees working the streets asking passersby if they want to see a show and frequently having pictures of said shows in a booklet. Once in, rather than a cover charge, the drinks are 3-4 times the usual amount and a purchase is required. It has also been reported that there may be an arbitrary "exit fee" if not enough was spent.
A similar activity was featured in the movie, Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
During the bachelor party scene in Artie Lange's movie, "Beer League" a prostitute named "Pitching Machine" is shown "pitching" ping pong balls for her clients to swing at.
