Well, we like to think of street food, but you cracked down on it; trying to think of night markets, you cracked down on that too; thinking of brand copies - crack down; beautiful scenery and nature, only with dangling cables and rubbish heaps...

What's left when thinking about Thailand? Corruption, coups after coups, slave labor, sex industry.

Foreigners thinking about sex when thinking about Thailand is not that bad of a deal..., considering the alternatives.

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.

Good point, that tells you right there that something is wrong with the data.  The only reason someone would not be aware (other than the usual clueless idiots to be found in any society) is that they fear to besmirtch the sacred Thai image or fear reprisals for speaking their mind, or feel it's impolite to point out the ugly truth.

I'm fairly sure if I asked 1000, 50 year old plus devout Buddhists this question, the result would be 100%. Try these surveys on Thais. Do you think Thais are smarter than foreigners? Are all foreigners rich? Do foreigners use prostitution in Thailand more than Thais? I'm sure we can all think of a lot more.

I wonder if this belief fuels bad feelings towards foreigners. I bet it does.

Sex is a commercial enterprise EVERYWHERE.  It does not matter where you are, there is a flesh trade.  You may consider it immoral, a blessing or a curse but it will persist.  The worst of it is criminal prostitution of children which needs to be a capital crime. The other is creating an  environment that results in moral degradation of adults who for whatever reason do this for work.

Prostitution is Thailand's major tourist drawcard.  The country has built it's reputation on sex.

 

Can you support that with the evidence please?

 

Seriously, are you suggesting that the number of sex tourists arriving is greater than the number of normal holiday makers who don't go pissing it up and whoring?

 

If so, please provide the research that shows that.

10 or 15 years ago Lumpini Park was well known as a place to pick up freelancers, not in the park, but around the perimeter road. It was known to have young, or possibly underage prostitutes touting there. Which is why those who frequented it generally kept quiet about it. I've no idea of it's status nowadays.

I think what this survey also shows is that most Thais judge all farangs as being like the sex tourists who frequent Pattaya, Phuket, Cowboy and Nana. 

 

In the same way many farang stereotype Thais and Thailand; they stereo type us. And sadly that stereo type usually involves piss heads, low class behavior, whoring and brawling.

No matter your linguistic skills, you'd need telepathic ones in order to know what another is thinking.

All those dozens and dozens of wonderful, friendly charming Thai bar girls I came across (settle down), they were all mind readers! Bless them all!

so basically 600 Thai people decided to point the "sex tourist" finger at foreigners and a big alarm goes off and now foreigners are all sex tourists thinking about sex.

Great job on reporting this garbage. 

I believe it, been coming here 40 years and it's all about sex, I would give it a higher percentage though, let's say  85% come for sex, the rest, shopping, vacations with families...........I go to a lot of Thai tourist places, venues, hardly any single foreigners there, families with kids??  Yes, single males??  not a chance.    go to Walking St Pattaya,  Patong, Nana, Soi Cowboy on a Saturday night and what do you see??   Just Sayin

If it wasn't for the sex trade over half the population would be out of work, half of Issan would starve to death (funds not sent home) half the businesses would be closed, half the supply trade would disappear, half the resorts would become a ghost town, half the

influential people wouldn't be so influential, half the number of tourists would come and half of Thailands GDP would be gone....

So it depends on your view point... supply & demand... one feeds off the other.

Not all tourists come here for Somtam!
Not all the girls sitting outside businesses are selling lottery tickets!

What a surprise. Not!

It's bloody obvious why foreigners visit Thailand, especially males!

Let's face it, for decades, greed plus unenforced laws have helped to contribute to the sex industry within Thailand.

The finger should be pointed at Thais, not foreigners.

After all, it just takes the authorities to abolish the sex industry altogether.

Why do so many foreigners visit Thailand, for what? Temples ? Elephants etc. Boring. No! It's mainly because of the sex industry.

This report makes me laugh.

They created the industry and now they want escape goats to hide their creation.

Some of the economics of Thais have led to some families "suggesting" their children go to Pattaya for "work" and send money home.

That's right. Many, many western men are fascinated by Asian women and I can assure you, vice-versa. The 'romance' of a new culture, the great weather, the cheap beer, the fun (holiday) life style make for a heady mix. These sex workers thrive on the fantasy. We treat each with respect, and life goes on.
