Junta to purge Pattaya of prostitutes (http://www.prachatai.com/english/node/6942)
Wed, 22/02/2017

In response to a recent report that labels Pattaya as the “world’s sex capital”, the junta head has announced a crackdown on prostitutes.

On 21 February 2017, Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, the Prime Minister and junta head, announced that he will order the police to uproot Pattaya’s sex industry (http://prachatai.com/journal/2017/02/70207). He asserted that local authorities always do their best to suppress the industry.

This statement came after the Mirror reported (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/inside-worlds-sex-capital-city-9834233) that Pattaya has the world’s highest number of prostitutes, deserving the title “world’s sex capital”. The report found that Pattaya has more than 27,000 prostitutes, roughly one for every five people living in the east-coast city visited by more than a million men each year.

Prayut said Thai media should not highlight the issue due to the risk of tarnishing the country’s image, adding that Thai media should not believe a story written by foreigners.

“You’re Thai media. Do you believe them? Do authorities arrest [prostitutes]? Yes, they do. I will order the police to clear them out. And let’s see if there will be any trouble. I don’t support prostitution. I follow the law,” said Prayut. “Instead of improving Thailand’s image, you [media] just keep blaming the government. Why? I don’t get it.”

Every year, Thailand’s sex industry drags million of tourists to the country. The Thai government has never revealed how much the industry contributes to the country’s GDP. But according to a report by Safe World for Women (http://www.asafeworldforwomen.org/trafficking/ht-asia/735-understanding-the-economics-of-sex-tourism.html), in 2003 prostitution was a USD4.3 billion industry in Thailand, accounting for an estimated 3 per cent of the country’s income.

SO 1000000 men divided by 27000 means that the girls on average only get 37 clients a year?:rolleyes:

I can easily believe that figure. Lots of women working in bars in Pattaya never go with men. This is for a whole variety of reasons but an obvious one has to that many are of them are not conventionally attractive. In fact there are some really grotty ones about. They survive on their bar wages and by sharing accommodation with other bargirls.

I love the Nana Hotel and am very experienced in the ins and outs of Nana Plaza. I am able to drink a lot without getting drunk and am a keen observer. Next time you go to Nana try to count the number of farangs there. Then try to see how many men actually leave the site with women. It is only a tiny percentage of those who visit. In my experience most guys who go there go there for two reasons. The first is to boast to their mates about their sexual prowess. The second is my reason - I have a good laugh looking at the other men and enjoying a beer. Luke's Bar is ideal for this. You can see everybody entering and leaving.

Stacks of potential prostitutes, not a lot of "boom boom".

Only if each male visits only one prostitute per year. Multiple visits is more realistic.

That's a lot of potential HIV infections just waiting to happen.
You'd have to be totally mad to use a pro.

Can, is Luke's Bar the balcony bar in up the escalator and hard right? Use to be a middle aged Thai women bartendee. I've been there many a time just watching the traffic and general goings on, in and out of the plaza. Strictly as an observer. The drinks are also reasonably priced there and no bar girls.

Leave the tarts, just get rid of those low life scammers, the vloggers, sexual perverts and criminals on the run.

Try going back to the USA for a while and you may reconsider that opinion.

tarts in my opinion are unfairly denigrated, they are girls (usually mingers) trying to make a buck, when you see the losers they have to shag, give them a break, if the junta really was seriously trying to give them some options, do some thing like educate them properly, instead of giving them stupid and untrained teachers. :rolleyes:

More chance of an early election than clearing out the ladies of the night. Their tourist numbers would drop by 50%.

Yes, when I return to the West for a time I start to miss it.

When I'm in Asia, it's not a big deal.

It's the "grass is greener on the other side of the fence," approach.

I'm not sure the Junta are serious about it though. Most Thais are all whoring each day most likely.
