PM Prayut urges all parties concerned to help solve prostitution problem

Recommended Posts

Whether for cash on the spot or for a nicer place to live and a credit card for shopping.... it’s all prostitution in the end. Like SIM cards the only question is prepaid or postpaid (the latter can be a whole lot more expensive).

But finally....would it be the mini skirt or bikini hotties all around that will make the "quality" and "unquality" tourists flee Thailand ??...

 

or will it be the pollution, the dirty beaches, the immigration hassles for retirees, the BKK taxi/tuk tuk cheats, the broad daylight corruption and tea-money racketting, the killer roads......up to you to decide which will tarnish most the image of Thailand and cause tourists and expats to flee or boycott the country for other more welcoming nations in Asia....

Should the Government look closer to home for possible answers to the problem?

 

Prostitute is one of if not the oldest form of profession.

 

Thailand is world renowned for being a massive, corrupt, brothel. It is fact!

 

But who allowed it to happen and continues to allow it to happen?

 

Its been allowed to happen, and continue to happen, from home grown individual's and not by the foreigners.

 

Could it have been, and still is, the work of the greedy corrupt, lawless fat cats?  The Police plus those in charge? Family members? The administration of the day etc?

 

Many Thais have no choice other than going into the sex industry, because of a lack of hope, finance and social care / security.

 

Age plus gender discrimination should be made a crime. Better employment conditions and rights enforced with a much better renumeration packages, and employment conditions.

 

My GF works 6 days a week, for up to 12 hours per day with no holiday or sick pay, no employee rights , no employment contract, for 250 thb per hour, which is below the legal hourly rate. She has to do, what work she can find, and normally treated like a dog by her employer/s, because that's how it is here. Disgraceful! Uncaring.

 

Many Thais face a bleak future when it comes to employment opportunities and practises. They generally receive poor education, and have to deal with the cultural class corrupt distinctions, the high-so attitudes and inequalities,, which may hinder their chances of seeking and or finding employment.

 

More assistance with better enforcement of employment laws, civil rights and equality should be aimed at, instead of buying watches, holding  back the rightful progression of democracy and trying to portray a perfect place.

 

No one or nation is perfect!

Amendment to previous post.

 

Earning 250 thb per day! Not 250 thb per hour.

This guy just keeps on surpassing himself with his inane statements. Large-scale prostitution pretty much sorts itself out when a country with as much wealth as Thailand starts to spread that wealth a little. Think: Korea and Japan, as two classic examples. But Korea and Japan displayed moral fortitude, whereas Thailand has implacable vested interests.

It is only sex at the end of the day, the most natural act in the world and one in which we all have to partake in to keep the world alive.

Quite right bobbymack. People get so up-tight about it.

 

Professor Pidgeon states that if there were just 100 people left in the world the ratio of women to women should be; 94 women and 6 men.

He can say what he wants but he can never stop nature. Women want money and if  guy has cash what's the problem?  it is of NO BUSINESS of any government to moralize over their citizens and they are all hypocrites anyway.

While I am not privy to the statistics; I do know I first came to Pattaya in 1967, while stationed in Vietnam. I was not alone and Pattaya was still in its infancy. However, I think we all fool ourselves claiming any Westerner created sex entertainment areas in Thailand.  

As you pointed out, you came to Pattaya in 1967 as an alternative to what? Bangkok. That's where the full-service option existed.

 

The post I was responding to incorrectly inferred that Pattaya's existence was solely due to the need for you guys to water your horses.

 

I agree with you inasmuch as no particular band of foreigners brought sex to the beach; the entrepreneurial Thais managed that on their own. I never claimed that the Germans invented the sex bit but I did suggest that, like yourself, they were only here for the beach side r&r and the ladies just started showing up.

 

FWIW, there's a distinct reason why there's still a large German presence in the Wong Amat area. I first darkened the Pattaya shores about 10 years after you and the joke about German beach towels on the poolside sun loungers BEFORE breakfast was already old.

And for your next trick, make the ChaoPraya clean enough to drink and flow backwards.

Salient observation.

 

If they didn't have the bi-weekly hooker round-up and rodeo on Beach, then the pages would have more news inches for all the other, much more dangerous aspects of bullet-dodging in LOS. The ones that affect a much bigger and broader visiting demographic than the diminishing amount of mongers.

I'm just wondering what Pattaya would have to offer the foreign tourists if you stop the go-go bars and the like. Certainly not the beaches and Ripley's is hardly a magnate for the tourists.  Most tourists are foreign Mr PM. .....perhaps you need to travel the World a bit more rather than a trip to some foreign part for a 5 minute chat and then back home before things could get out of hand !!

Spot on!!

 

Some countries go over the top to stop women and men getting together. Religion is the biggest barrier to free prostitution. But the natural way of things will eventually see copulation return to its natural state.

From my vantage point behind the lines, I notice motivated girls/women are not working the bars, but instead utilizing the Internet to meet foreigners, and shortly thereafter they are getting flown out to first world countries and doing better than trying to achieve success in crrupt Thailand.

Who are you trying to kid? The motivated girls/women are heading off to places such as Dubai, Saudi Arabia and South Korea where they can earn far more on their back than anywhere in Thailand. It's not a coincidence they are also the most beautiful from poor villages.

They are not all success stories either. Some have their passports stolen, and become trapped.

Assumptions and wrong on both counts i'm afraid.

 

Even forgetting the bars/gogo bars (that still dominate many centrally placed sois around the city) it's hard to ignore the mile long line of hookers along beach road at night and the multiple large soapies on Second Road. 

 

       Umm.  You're still focused on the bars with a quick jaunt to Beach Road--a rather narrow focus.  Not that there's anything wrong with the bars but there's a whole big city out there offering other attractions.   And, yes, the hookers are actually easy to ignore. There are so many 'new tourists' out and about in the evening the hookers are sort of getting lost in the crowd, poor dears.
