I was not aware it was a problem.I and many other men have no problem with it,

 It is a case of mind over matter. If the women do not mind it does not matter.

Money doesn't stink and women do mind from time to time. Please ask my wife.

85% of "users" of Thai prostitution are Thai men

Can you imagine when the drugged truck drivers can't flogg anymore when in the capital? And the short time hotels/rooms all over the country would be empty. We must have thousands of them. Who's using them?

 

 I've never seen another foreigner....oh wait, my friend told me that. I'd never do that.

The thing to do is to upgrade it to part of the legitimate hospitality industry and aim for ISO9000 excellence. There should be vocational courses for it.

If he could only get the girls to go for free the prostitution problem would be solved.

Thai people do not see prostitution as something degrading as western people do .  My experience married to a Thai woman , is that Thais don't

" Make Love " as we western people know it ; sex is a quick in and out that can be enjoyable for both , but feelings of " Love " are not a part of it .

Married or not women will have sex for money or gold .  Thailand is caught between two stools , low wages means manufactured products market at a competitive price ; higher wages that provide a decent living means that Thailand will no longer have a competitive edge in the market .

Mothers and fathers are quite happy for their daughter to go to Bangkok , Pattaya or Phuket to be a bar girl or masseuse , in the full knowledge of how the money is earned , sending lots of money home to their impoverished rural region .  In a country town or big village , at the evening market it is quite normal for an elderly man to be propositioned for sex by one or more young girls .  I understand that chains of massage parlours are a massive business , to do away with them will lose a huge amount of tourist business .  Thailand is a cheap destination , ( Sadly ) for the lower end of the market ; Thailand doesn't have what is needed to cater for the upper end of the market , or only on a small scale .  

 

"Thailand is caught between two stools....."

 

Was it necessary to mention Ladyboys ?   5555

"Finding serinty... Forgetting Western) principles". It's not only the title of a book but it's also a good way to think and be happy in Thailand.

Agreed, I love holidaying in LoS and know that I'll end up retiring there later down the line. 

 

But I see Thais warts and all,  festering carbuncles included; that said I count many good honest Thai folk among my dearest and trusted friends.  Some are well traveled and quietly acknowledge their country's inherent flaws. 

 

IMHO Thailand needs a fully democratic process,  even the Taksin model if that's what it takes; anything to break the hold on power of the generalissimos.   Then the Thais can work on sorting it all out and developing an established democratic government accountable to the electorate itself.

especially those in the tourism sector must try to change the image of Pattaya into a destination of quality tourism and not as a sex destination.

Uh-oh ... I thought it was against the rules to make such scurrilous suggestions (Pattaya a sex destination??) in these here forums!

Seems that a fair portion of the population will need some re-skilling if this plan goes through. I can see new careers as 'party balloon inflators', 'sausage packagers', and 'soapy car wash workers'...

While admitting Thailand’s tainted image as being a sex haven has been with us for a long time, he said that there are still many people who make their living serving as sex workers.

 

And even more prominent figures who make a pile running the sex trade, as we've seen time & time again...

Nothing is going to change any time soon, GDP would drop through the floor & what would the thousands of sex workers do for an alternative occupation..

I don't see going back home to harvest rice at 300 baht per day is going to be very appealing....

especially after laying on a beach every day, earning 3,000 baht at night on your back in bed with dinner thrown in!!

 

3,000 baht at night? that's a tourist for you! always inflating the price! be glad when low season comes.

Since when does anyone "make love"?

 

Media term.

 

People are people the world over. Religion plays a role but otherwise it's the same.

If you can see it at all, it's a problem. 

 

For every $1 brought in by the mongers, there are probably $5 that families won't bring in because it's so in-your-face.  They'll go elsewhere.  To be clear, there is no "elsewhere" that doesn't have prostitution.  Just not so in-your-face that you have to explain it to your kids, along with what those big plastic schlongs on sale in front of the hotel are for, and why they can't buy those videos (at eye level on even the main markets) with the naked guys and gals on the front covers doing strange things.

Maybe don't take your kids to Pattaya, Bangla road or the blatantly sex tradie part of Bangkok on holidays perhaps? It's certainly not on my family holiday destination list.
