Phuket Nipple Alert: Staying Abreast Of Nude On Our Beaches

Recommended Posts

PHUKET: -- NIPPLE-wielding beach lovers take note: You could find yourself spending a night in jail instead of getting that all-body tan if you break the law.

Is this just ignorance or an honest mistake? But surely it is not a straight choice between getting a tan and spending a night in jail, since, last time I looked, the sun seems not to shine at night.

Sorry,

But I am failing to see how this is news at all?

Maybe it is me. Most people know you shouldn't go topless over here, but in parts of Phuket where tourists are what bring the money in, exceptions should be made.

No one was arrested for being topless, no one was even talked to by the police. The only thing here is someone ran down the MAIN high street naked which is unacceptable in anyone's country.

So can someone tell me the point of this complete pointless article?

Or is it just normal Phuket Gazette Waffle?

Many times here in Kamala i have approched topless females and told them that this is a Moslem communnity and to please cover up as they are offending their host.

I'd say 95% of them should not have gone topless in the privacy of their own homes much less in Public. :bah:

Some would cover up and apologize and say they didn't know, some would say its not my country, others would tell me that no thai had told them that so they assumed it was ok,

There should be signs on every beach that it is NOT acceptable behavior in Thailand. Note not just the words but a pair of sagging breasts with a big red X thru them

So nice tits are ok???? stand on the chair its all going over your head.

Let's not talk about Thai hypocrisy, please.

Let's look no further than the United Shorts of Amerika.

Does everyone forget the hissy fits that occurred when Janet Jackson bared one nipple for about one second while performing some music during the interval of the Super Bowl about six years ago?????

I forget now, but wasn't she banned from all further Super Bowl contracts. Amerika goes bananas over one black nipple.

But I do agree: there should be a law against , specifically, the displaying of huge pendulous tits by women in the 40+ category, usually visitors from England or Amerika. It's an offence against,not morality, but eyesight.

I saw the show, it was not black, it was brown.

The majority of comments above show about the same amount of ignorance, when it comes to Thai mores, as the "boobies.

This is NOT your country or a European country. Before you came here you should have done your homework and read up on what is expected of visitors. And using the small percentage of Thais who are in the sex trade is not good form when arguing a point.

As an expat of 6+ years, I find myself ashamed of the way farangs dress, both on the beach and on the streets. Someone should also say something to the hairy men who insist on wearing underwear shirts in public, such as at the mall and in theatres.

All of us should remember our manners while in this great (with exceptions) country.

Hmmm...bit of a generalisation I think. I would say that Thai girls are starting to dress more and more 'sexily' shall we say all the time.

The available clothes at Robinson, Emporium etc show just the types of dress that is coming in and is depmanded in Thailand.

Don't know where you live, but I see many Thai girls, dressing similarly to their Western counterparts.

Of course, some just go over board and if your referring to that then the above is negated.

Showing a bit of skin, or a bit of boob (with a top on) is nothing wrong and happens even with Thai's (outside the 'bar' scene).

Thailand is evolving, and some people seem to forget that.

Here's an interesting fact from wikipedia: "Thai Cultural Mandates issued in 1939 and Western writingsprove Thai women would go clothed fully or topless in public before the westernization of dress. In the late 19th century the influence of missionaries and modernization under King Rama V encouraged local women to wear blouses to cover their breasts. Until the early 20th century, women from northern Thailand wore a long tube-skirt (Pha-Sin), tied high above their waist and below their breasts, which were uncovered".

It was mainly Western influences that encouraged Thai women, and many others in SE Asia, to cover up their breasts.

As a guest in Thailand, I think it is important to respect the culture, but I do wish toplessness was permitted like it was in the last century. Nothing like a swim in the ocean in with no top on. You men know what it is like.

Although what you claim is a small percent involved in the sex industry the fact is it's right under everyone's noses, so much so that people tend to think the number involved is that much higher, without doubt tolerated because police get paid from the bar owners and it generally generates alot of $$$.

Those who are blind to this are the most horrendous prudes, my GF asked my friend not to hang her bikini on our gate because of what the neighbors would think and it's evident that public displays of affection are not cool.

..... and the lady went back to her stall to sell the porn dvd's i bet.

Some things you just couldnt make up in Thailand, how is it so acceptable to sell SEX and SEX DVD's but showing a bit of flesh on the beach or surrounding area is frowned upon. Is it one rule for Farangs and obne rule for locals here ?

What a broad-sweeping generality. If you broadened your horizons beyond sex you'd realize that only a small percentage of Thais are involved in sex-related commerce and most are indeed offended by public nudity. It is their country and culture you know.

You don't think she KNEW that was going to happen, ie the big uproar. Please......of course she did, she needed to get in the public view again. People talked about it for far too long.

Clearly it worked. It was all planned and the outcome was already known.

It is NOT acceptable to sell sex DVD's, although I admit that unless the police decide to have a major clamp down by blitzing a specific and usually reknowned area (which they do occasionally in Bangkok) then it does seem like a free for all.

Yes, somebody really needs to get on this right away, because if there's one thing I can't stand it's BREASTS! Especially when they're indecently unleashed in public! Don't these smooth skinned, barely legal, oversexed, often times voluptuous, little tramps get it? This has to end because it's utterly offensive. No more breasts.

Carry on up the Kyber..and bring back Barbera Windsor for a guest appearence ,standing under a palm tree singing 'I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts'!!!!

We need a new Carry On movie - How about Carry On Thailand.

Bring on the permissive society. Down with cultural prudes.

Amazing how it's ok to scam tourists out of thousands, but showing nipples is frowned upon. Spastics!!

It's about time time somebody said something about it. Now let them take a bit more action :)

The funny thing is that in the rural parts of Thailand I have seen many very old ladies who never cover their breasts. Most 60 year old plus women seem not to suffer from modesty when bathing publicly and bare breasted.

I can only surmise that covering the breasts is a fairly recent development in Thai culture.

Or maybe it's because not too many are interested in ogling a 60+ year old :blink:

Actually you may have raised an interesting point here. In the countryside villages some 4 or 5 decades ago, topless was the norm especially in the Isan area - ditto in Laos. Outside influences, such as the French in Laos and the Chinese in Thailand made toplessness in public for women unacceptable. Oddly enough, with the exception of FKK in Germany which probably did not get off the ground until the early 20th century, European and Western culture would have forbidden any topless behaviour by women prior to the second half of the 20th century.

On a more philosophical point, unlike pornography in its many forms, women's breasts are not hidden because they might corrupt or damage children - after all, breast feeding of young children is completely natural. Instead, women are asked to cover up because the sight of bare breasts in public might excite men!

Of course context is key to what is allowed and where. In Germany, there is nothing wrong in stripping off and jumping into a lake, river or the sea with people of the opposite sex even though you are not otherwise intimate with them. However, stripping off in someone's living room in Germany might be considered unusual or even shocking.

A thousandandone thumbs UP for that one!

Not only scamming and money cheats...billions "dispappearing from "national Park" fees collected from whom? How about the show(s) going on at bangla, at the walking street in pattaya, patpong, soi cowboy, nana - bkk, samui, night market @ cmx and in many, many other highly exposed or well hidden places like "karaoke" bars, in "massage" parlors owned by whom, here?
