Apparently (I wouldn't know personally) but there is a lovely selection of girls looking for 'love' on Soi 4 BKK

Not the usual ladies of the night either!

 

Oh, so your one of those people that read Stickboy. Nice steal of his post. 🙂

Because prostitution is illegal?

This thread certainly didn't disappoint in bringing out the lowest forms of expats

Traced back to having children they have to support with those that aren't going to stick around. Meaning 90%+ of men, especially here. Thailand leads the world with more children raised by grandparents and family back home. Over 25% and still counting. Sometimes they are helping out their families back in country, and this job gives them more than a legitimate one at KFC's, McDonald's, Pizza Hut, any factory, Tesco, one of a million noodle shops etc etc etc. The downside is being trafficked without consent, (Thailand being one of the worse trafficking places on earth, helped along by some of the police force) diseases of which there are many, more children made from fathers they'll never know, and beatings or death by sick clients. But that's okay, as they are making more than the usual 200 baht a day.

More panic mongering and utter drivel and nonsense. Nothing to spread, since the virus is gone. 40 cases in the past two weeks, is hardly an issue. And testing means nothing, when the people are not sick. Kissing and sex are healthy, and if anything they boost the immune system!

 

And if this utterly hapless government were serious about really helping it's people in need, all that would be required to claim the 5,000 baht in assistance, would be a Thai ID card. But, most of us know the degree of their insincerity. 

I think he was referring to the many STD"S that are being spread, and not Covid19.

Used underwear 

Knowing my luck, I'd probably get a pair of my own used undies back!

Or, as it went at my last medical with the doctor trying to explain to me without my understanding Thai:

Doctor: "We will need a blood sample, a stool sample, a urine sample and, possibly, a semen sample to start with".

Me (to my Thai wife): "What did he say?"

My wife (to me, in Tinglish): "He says he needs a pair of your underpants!"

They were the first hit by losing their regular line of work as the pandemic started and they are likely to be among the last that can go back to work

And their line of work we were told doesn't exist in Thailand...

I ve been laughing to myself reading through these comments. Not a single shred of sympathy for the hookers.  I'd love to see the faces of all the feminist, do gooder, Man-hating, lefties back in the UK, bet they'd be furiously typing away letters of complaint to The Guardian.  Lol 😂😂

No way is the picture in the op of Thailand. Those paving blocks are way, way too well laid to be done here......

Only a few qualified for government 5,000 baht handouts.

 

did they declare their annual earnings and pay an income tax owing? if they did then they have a case for assistance, if they didn't then they cant really expect help from the government. you make your bed...

The government does not recognize them, so even if they wanted that it is not an option. 

 

Plus, anyone who believe these women aren't "taxed" really needs to do some more thinking on the issue.
