Shoring” is a portmanteau of ‘scoring’ and ‘whores’. A person ‘shores’ when they have sex with a girl who may be a prostitute, but no payment is involved. Bar fining is not considered shoring. Shoring only occurs when the girl is genuinely attracted to a mate. She will often forego potential earnings with paying customers in this circumstance. It is not unusual for a man to have no idea the girl is a working girl. Shoring is common practice in parts of the developing world where the majority of girls you meet at night seek resources for sex. If you shore, protection is recommended.

The word shoring was invented myself and a friend while travelling in South East Asia in the summer of 2009.

    Sorry, I am clogging the hell up out of your site with my comments.. I have to say that shoring definately occured a lot while I was in Jakarta, Indonesia.

        Hey Dude,

        Sorry about the late reply. I went to Jakarta for about a month on a holiday/hustle experience. I have so many damn stories and yeah… I think it would be more appropriate to share it over PMs or a beer sometime, haha. I just turned 21 and it was pretty damn random, but it turned out to be the best thing i’ve ever done in my life (traveling to Indonesia).

        I found your site randomly, I can’t even remember.. maybe you commented on some travel site and left your website in your comment? Sorry I can’t be more help.. anyways, e-mail if you want more details about the Indonesian excursion 😛

    “It is not unusual for a man to have no idea the girl is a working girl.”

    In that case I wouldn’t call it shoring. For me shoring means that she knows that you know that she is a whore but you still get to seduce her without paying for the fun. Funny challenge.

    Shoring is not so hard with semi-pros but much harder with hardcore pros. Some are so greedy it’s almost impossible. But it’s always fun to try.

      True, very true. Certain women DO NOT fuck unless they’re making cash.. no fun.

    I shored with some freelancers in Bangkok back when I lived there. It always felt like a great accomplishment to get one of these sexy babes to leave their work at the bar and give you some good, free lovin.

    Sorry but there is nothing to brag about in ‘shoring’ S.E Asian pros. Anyone can do that by simply dangling a carrot in front of them ( it’s not lying,it’s flirting : ). Indonesia is the easiest place to do this imho. Go to Belitung and you will be shoring within minutes of landing. My old man ( he’s 65 took it too far with the shoring and got the bird pregnant. Still he’s moved out there and they’re happy so no probs ). No,if you want the challenge of shoring then head to Moscow or kiev and get one of those 10’s to be your woman without paying. That would be something to brag about. I shagged a pro in provincial Russia, then invited her on a date to the Lenin museum the next day. She called me that night and asked if she could come to my room for the night. No payment. The next day when I took the train to Moscow she turned up at the station to say goodbye and bought me a packet of noodles for the journey. That my friends is SHORING!

    Wow, just read this and its exactly what happened to me in Colombia.

    I was kinda heartbroken, angry & scared when I learned the girl I was seeing was also charging money to others for sex.

    But it was a good lesson, learned the hard way about one of the differences between US and other cultures.

    Shoring, as you named it, no doubt exists. I am sure you can be successful with some of the semi-pros in developing countries. I would however offer that there can be misunderstandings and delusions.

    I have seen guys who are delusional in what has transpired with a working girl in a third world country. They will wine, dine and even take a girl shopping the next day. Then they will insist that they did not pay for sex. You can see a young girl in a poor country might be happier with some gifts than cash. Is there genuine attraction and possibly feelings? Of course. It would be naive to think that genuine attraction couldn’t be cultivated by some charm combined with the income disparity.

    I’ve also seen that awkward situation the next day where the woman thought the guy understood what transpired. This usually happens when the guy is pushing the delusion above hard in his mind. It happens in bars around the world where all the women in the bar are pros of some type. The guy might ignore the obvious signals for his own ego.
