PM Prayut urges all parties concerned to help solve prostitution problem

Recommended Posts

If the prostitution In Thailand is to be diminished. that will never happen. So many new laws that come out for this country are stated .after a week or two the are all forgotten. How else would these uneducated   ladys be able to provide for their  families. for them its very good money that could not be matched by working in a restaurant or hotel /resort ect.

So called?  What would you call morals?  Is there such a thing? 

 

To forget one's morals is to contribute to the decadence of society.  More importantly, it is to be willfully ignorant of one's eternal interests--to sacrifice one's hope of eternal existence for a few very short moments of pleasure.  I say it's not worth it.  The eternal prize is worth risking everything for, and giving up everything in the effort, as an olympian does in seeking the gold medal.

 

And that statement right there alludes to the solution.  I think, as unpopular as their efforts have been portrayed, the attempts by the Shinawatras to strengthen the economy among the poorer classes were as much effective toward alleviating the core basis for prostitution as any.  Very few women desire such an ignominious and disagreeable "job."  Providing them better means of supporting themselves and their families would be the most efficient method of elevating the country out of its shame.

Oh dear, another apparent newbie ( low post count ) with no clue about the scene. How many hairdressers can make a living in LOS, or would you prefer they work in a sweat shop?

 

To eliminate prostitution they would have to start with the enormous Thai only scene, and doing that would cause problems even a puritan wouldn't want.

"Earlier, Gambian tourism minister Hamal Bah was quoted to have said that if western tourists wanted to go to Gambia for sex, they should better go to Thailand which is the sex destination."

 

He should have realised this was an attempted wind up when he saw the tourist minister's name. All he's succeeded in doing is drawing attention back to a problem that hasn't been in the headlines too much recently.

 

Ironically, Gambia has been in the headlines recently for accepting one of Thailand's famously rejected sex tourists - the big legged German beggar who'd been banned from here and a dozen other countries before they welcomed him to their bosom. So it's probably all sour grapes.

Most success in solving

problems comes from addressing the biggest issue...get more bang for the buck. And that's fitting here.

 

Close down the shops serving Thais. 98% of the problem solved.

If they closed down all the shops serving Thais, there would be no bars left in the country.

It's a really popular topic, this.  :)

Of course. Most of us, if we are honest, are here because of it.

Financing relationship agreements you mean, sugar coated as "love you long time", that terminate when the money runs out.

So what?

Farangs come to Thailand once a year, pick a young Thai lady, promise her a rose garden, and then expect the young lady to stay away from sex with others and wait - maybe forever.

Did you do that when you were young?

 

A Thai lady is free ( that's what "Thai" means), she's not anyone's property, especially not the property of an old Farang butterfly. 

If you have the money, then please hand it over. If you can't afford a relationship with a Thai lady (and her family), then you better stay away.

 

Read this if you think Thai ladies are special:

10 year old kids on motorbikes racing around with no helmets on the streets during weeknights at midnight and he's worried that some people know to come to Thailand for a good time and get laid???

Isn't it interesting?

When talking openly about (the non-existing) prostitution, it is "Pattaya" and the "farang"...

No mention of the sex- trade, undergone by Thais, which should be at around 90% of all sex- trade!

 

Also: how about trying to install a kind of safety- net?

You know...where men are held accountable for the babies they father, where education is meaningful and there are jobs that pay more than a bowl of rice and some moo ping on any given day?

How about taxing the super- rich to pay for it?

 

Oh well...Thailand....

LOL. More than 40% of the GDP and he wants to shut it down? Reminds me of a Supertramp song "dreamer, nothing but a dreamer"......

Not forgetting that it is something like 93% Thai's that use said services :coffee1:

but they are the law

 

When he said "the authorities responsible for the prostitution problem" was he referring to the real Brothel owners?

Humm.... Bt20,000 per month in a dead end job or Bt3,000-8,000 per any given night in the bar. Not to mention all the other secondary jobs. To end that would be devastating to the economy.

There are perhaps a few here on TV who have more experience with Thailand.  I've only been around the country for more than a couple decades.  Of course, while post count might be an indicator of one's loquaciousness, it does nothing to indicate one's experience.  If it's any help to your understanding of my perspective, I am conversationally fluent in Thai and am literate in the language.  It's good you prefaced your statement with "apparent."  Not all things, however, are as they appear on the surface.

 

Eliminating prostitution will not happen if the modus operandi is to simply shut down the brothels.  The economic forces underpinning the problem must be resolved.  I remember the day in Thailand when a farm laborer would work over 10 hours in the sun for 100 baht per day.  Last I heard, I think the minimum is nearer to 250-300 baht per day for such workers.  But if this is insufficient to feed, clothe, and educate the family, much less pay for extras like medical care, the temptation to sacrifice one's own good for the good of the family increases.

 

Many years ago I attended the funeral in northern Thailand of a nine-year-old boy whose mother had given him HIV at his birth.  She had already preceded him in death.  Is it necessary to say how she acquired it?
