53% said they were aware of prostitution in Thailand.

What about the other 47?. blind  and deaf maybe.

Anyone who is unaware of prostitution here, is lacking something or are in denial.

Come to kanchanaburi Colin you will be unaware of it here

Asked why people turn to the sex trade 30% said it was economic hardship, 25% thought people were tricked or forced into it, 21% said poverty in families was to blame while nearly 12% pointed to greed and consumerism.

All true, a daughter here is looked at as an asset. Any culture that embraces the dowry is placing a monetary value on their children. Foreigners are a bonus because they enlarge the market, there are plenty of 70 plus Poo Yais in the villages that have 20 something wives and Mia Nois.

this is true. just last night on social media on a learn to speak English forum a Thai female university student asked me to help her with her English final exam. She sent me all the questions and then asked me if there was some way she could repay me if I helped her.

 

wink wink nudge nudge say no more. but i did not do it.

This is true the majority of tourists come here to shag.
I did and if the truth be known I'll bet 99 percent of members of this forum did..... why not? Thailand is a shag fest!

The majority of tourists under 40 or so go to Spain / Greece / Gambia / anywhere hot for the same reason: Alcohol, sun, drugs and rudies. Why would Thailand be unique? It's what your fortnight away from the cold and the drudgery is all about at that age...

Having spent almost 8 years in Vietnam in 1977 when I first came to Thailand I happened to see Thailand as a definite 2nd place as a "Sex destination" to Vietnam.

Maybe 2nd place to Vietnam before, but certainly not in 1977.

When i was a teen i remember a lot of news about the thai police planting drugs on tourists and robbing them . It was big news in the seventies . Everything in uk was made in thailand , not china like the little welsh doll i bought on the top of snowden .By the eighties all i thought thailand was about was corruption and sex .
 When i came to thialand i learned a bit more and found out about pattaya and phuket and not wanting to met the type of pervs that go there i went to udon thani/nong  khai .Even though most of the bar girls come from udon there is  very little farang sex trade up here but a lot of prostitutes for thai men but pretty much hidden .Basically thailand has had a reputation for corruption and prostitutes for all of my life and if you really polled thias and they give honest answers there would be 100% people who would say foreigners think of thailand for sex . Even the poor rice farmers in my village know this esp as a lot of their daughters work in it so the poll is rubbish

...and in another poll taken amongst 2000 people.......99% said Thai men are the biggest users of prostitutes in Thailand...while 1% suddenly didn't understand the question :coffee1:

Unfortunately this is true. The western perspectives of Thailand is rather quite shocking. But the reality is, it simply is not true and has been blown well out of proportion.

 

The Thai sex industry is only here for those who go seeking it, just like any other country. Central and Eastern Europe, Britain, America and Australia have a flourishing sex industry that rarely gets a mention and in fact, in many of these countries prostitution is actually legal.

 

This is true, except the one thing people seem to forget is that Thailand's sex industry is somewhat unique to those that you have mentioned above.

 

For all of your examples above, prostitutes go short time and offer sex. In Thailand, prostitutes offer both sex and paid companionship, sometimes resembling a girlfriend experience.

 

For the lonely or socially awkward types, that is often the real attraction. One could make the arguement that it is affection and a temporary cure for loneliness that that attracts the single male tourist, and not necessarily the sex.

 

if it was solely about getting laid, why fly halfway around the world at great expense for it?
