About Me

My first experience of Southeast Asian girls came as a young man on his first trip to Thailand. I can easily remember how excited I was by the whole experience of Thailand and its rich culture, and it left a big impression on me.

Up until that first trip I had only strayed from my own country, England, on a handful of occasions, and never anywhere outside of Europe.

Southeast Asia is completely different to Europe in so many regards. There are, of course, many rich and diverse cultures within Europe but when you step outside the Western world you can feel the difference almost as soon as you step off the plane.

You don’t just feel like you have stepped into a different culture in SEA, you feel like you are in a completely different world. The sights, the sounds, the smells, the heat and humidity... and of course the people and their unique customs.

Many things, in a million different ways, are just not quite the same as they are back home. The food, the tonal language, the religion, the hierarchical society and so on are very different.

One of the biggest culture shocks related to understanding feelings and emotions in any given situation. Having lived in SEA, and having dated many different Southeast Asian ladies whilst studying the various cultures, I am at a point where I believe I can make a significant contribution to help my fellow Westerners understand how to go about dating Asian girls and, just as important, how not to do it.

AsiaLibertine.com has been a long time in the planning stages, not least because my skills in web design and development have taken quite a while to get to their current level (which I confess is still basic!).

However, I start this website off the back of already having spent a couple of years developing my first attempt at a website. The lessons learned in that endeavor have stood me in good stead to get the right structure and flow to this website, and I hope that you will find it easy to navigate and read through.

As AsiaLibertine.com matures it is my intention to provide not just the best of my own advice about nightlife, sex and romance in SEA (in fact it is already a combination of my own knowledge, that of close friends, and of a balanced view of relevant literature), I intend to source more and more second opinions from professional writers with specialist knowledge of Southeast Asia.

I hope that you will find my site an interesting and useful resource and that it will help you to find what you are looking for. If you are already dating a Southeast Asian lady, I hope that the pages here might help you to understand her feelings about certain things, and that at the very least it will help you to avoid an argument or two!

Best wishes and good luck,

Steve Bain
