The death of a woman from a suspected drug overdose after a Bangkok party has underscored the risks faced by Thailand’s “pretties” – models-for-hire who offer services ranging from making appearances at sales promotion gigs, modelling at motorshows and hosting “VIP” parties, and who at each turn usually entertain male clientele in some form.

 

The woman, Whitchayaporn Visessombut, known as Wa-Wa, was booked out to a VIP party in a Bangkok suburb late on Monday night and died at a local hospital the next day.

 

CCTV footage shared on local media showed two unidentified men dropping the 33-year-old at the hospital around 6am, paying 15,000 baht (about US$500) to the cashier at the emergency desk and then leaving. She was declared dead a few hours later.

They took her to the hospital and put money down for her care so there's that. 

Money down was probably to ensure the cctv was serviced, but yeah, they did at least take her to the hospital.

Why they are called pretties ? The proper description should be hookers.

OK then if it makes you and every one else happy let's just call them pretty hookers 😂 But in any event , whatever there calling is to earn money, then just like the rest of the world it should be a lesson that drugs are not a quick fix to enhance your lifestyle

The dangerous life of a "pretty" or the dangerous life of an individual who is in the drug culture.  The two can be mutually exclusive.  Hiring out for VIP parties doesn't mean you have to take ketamine and Ecstasy.  Have a few drinks and stay away from drug combinations that can kill you. 
But youth - you pay your money and take your chances.  Didn't work out well for this kid.  Sad story but avoidable and has nothing to do with her employment choice.  I had to do with her choice of what to put into her body.

This "pretty" thing is getting ubiquitous. I've noticed that not only in high end liquor stores, but even in a fairly budget market like Foodland on soi 5 Sukhumvit, there are curvy babes in nice clothes in the alcohol aisles, ready to help you pay the outrageous mark-ups. They are eye candy, but their pay can't be more than a few hundred baht per day, the business couldn't afford more. 

And btw, "pretty" as an an adoption from English is not bad, and I rather like it. It's no worse than "fan" for lover, or paw-paw for older (presumably respected) male, both from English.

Not all are "hookers" despite what some want to think in their little fantasies. You know, the ones who seem to think that every woman in Thailand is "for sale" and dying for the opportunity to thrown themselves at the feet of some fat old expat whose barely squeezing by on what little pension he has.

Bit judgemental there ............. 

My 'little' pension 40k Vs her 'respectable' 7-11 job 9k.

I don't think 'every woman in Thailand', but I do think 'every woman who will give me the time of day'

And in 12 years I haven't been wrong.

Common sense tells us this already. Of course the life is dangerous, they sell themselves for sex - and who's going to do that sober? I've seen some pretties with absolute beasts, and that isn't going to happen unless they're wasted. Sad story, and sadly, it's a predictable outcome.

Having no morals or conscience is a major trait of a lot of affluent and self named "hiso's' in Thailand, unfortunately.

A bit harsh, could have dropped her there and left the  bill upto her .... 

but certainly understand the comment.

Can't see the relevance of the soi cowboy photo. 

Plenty of thai frequented places they could have used.

I wonder why they used a farang area and not a thai arwa.?

BS !  I have been to parties in my teens (and  older) when guys had spiked the punch so that girls  would get wasted and they could take advantsage of them. I ended up taking some girls home.  1 I left with her parents the other lived by herself and was in bad shape, couldn't walk ,I had to carry herv  to her apartment.. She  pleaded with me to stay with her as she felt like she was going to die.  I stayed on her bed  an had a pail, towel  water ice nearby. She did throw up once during the night. If I wasn't there she might have choked on her vomit  and died.  I left the next day after she woke up and she thanked me for staying with her. Next week she rewarded me for bring her home and staying with her.

Some  of the pretties get in trouble by acpting big amounts of baht for taking  a drink and not knowing whats in it. Once they start they are too f--up to make  a decision to stop.

Last time I drove past that soi of an evening it was almost completely dark.
