Bangkok bus service warns amorous students to behave themselves in back seats

BANGKOK: -- Bangkok transport officials posted notices on some of the city's buses Wednesday urging young passengers not to have sex while riding in the vehicles.

The Bangkok Mass Transit Authority came under fire from commuters this week after a study by an academic revealed that scores of colleges students were engaging in intercourse, usually in the rear seats of the darkened buses during the evening commute from classes.

"I have interviewed bus conductors and some passengers, and they confirm the study that students are having sex, especially on the air-conditioned bus route 12," said Virat Chokkatiwat, a director of the MTA.

Route 12 goes past several evening colleges of Bangkok and terminates at the outskirts of the capital. Cloth curtains on bus windows along that route have been removed because some lovers were using them to cover themselves, Virat said.

In an effort to combat the problem, notices on all the Route 12 buses now advise: "Thai women should preserve old culture about sexual behaviour."

Although Thailand is well-known for its racy nightlife, it is a predominantly Buddhist, conservative country, where displays of public affection, including kissing in public, are rare.

Still, social mores among the younger generation, influenced by western culture in recent decades, are quickly changing.

What does that mean? That the amorous duo should get off the bus when it passes one of Thailand's ubiquitous "curtain hotels" and get themselves a room?

I've heard this news on radio yesterday. I know bus route 12 very well, i usually take this bus to the university. However, I wonder how can they do it on the air condition bus???? :D

i agree with this. Why they do it on bus. Crazy!!! :o:D I not an old generation but it's really piss me off.

I think they imitate western culture from movie and TV show such as MTV.

:D Sao jai = so sad.

I agree with CG I don't know all the customs of thailand even though i was born there but i know some about how men and women should act. when i got married in 2002 I went walking around my wife's village to meet all her friends we walked around the whole place. I was holding her hand, My Mom told me that we should not do that even that in public, But my wife said it was OK now.

I tried the bus last night ... out of journalistic curiosity, mind you, although my press ID was purchased a half hour before I boarded.

Anyway, I got off the bus at the very next stop when I was asked to pay in advance! I never pay in advance in Southeast Asia!
