Thailand Prostitution & Western Values
I have noticed a common factor amongst the naysayers when it comes to
participating in the Thai prostitution scene – they all exhibit an
irresistible compulsion to attach western, Christian values to it.
you’ve lived your life in a western culture there is no escaping the
influence of Christian values, even if you regard yourself to be
These values underlie much of our
instinctive feelings towards every day matters e.g. attitudes towards
monogamy and the guilt that is attached to promiscuity. It has even
verged on the ridiculous... children are still told in some places that
they’ll go blind if they masturbate!
Oh no, not another guy with 'toxic masculinity' perusing the bars...
This sort of nonsense demonstrates the prudish mentality that runs
throughout the west; it’s almost as though the act of sex itself is in
someway a dirty thing that we should be ashamed of. When you step
outside of western culture and head to Thailand, you find that people
don’t have the same sort of hang-ups about sex, and that includes the
I’m not saying that the Thailand prostitution
industry is regarded as being a respectable career choice for young
women, it isn’t, but it has nothing to do with the exchange of cash.
extent of the Thai sex industry and its facility with western men is
particularly grating for some people due to their moral objection to the
purchasing of flesh. In their eyes this is simply wrong on any level,
but in Thailand this sort of thinking simply doesn’t exist.
Paying for sex is not looked down on for its own sake; the reason why
prostitutes in Thailand are seen in an unfavorable light is because it
runs counter to the Thai perception of what decent women are. A good
woman in Thai culture is deemed to be someone that is very reserved, shy
It’s the over-familiarity of prostitutes and the way that
they solicit themselves in order to get customers that causes disgust.
Sex workers are seen as being the antithesis of what a good, decent,
virtuous woman should be.
Now, I've no doubt that the
gender-neutral left-wing morons in the west who argue that everything is
a social construct (even gender!) will have plenty to say about the
woes of attaching roles to what women should be and how 'toxic
masculinity' and the 'patriarchy' are to blame for it all...
suggestion to these fools is to at least try to cast an objective eye at
the Thai people, and then ask themselves who are the happier - your
average Thai girl or your average 'liberated' western girl?
nutshell, if you feel that it is wrong to exchange cash for sex, then
don’t do it, but accept that your feelings are not universally shared
and that they certainly aren’t shared by the girls working in the Thailand prostitution industry.
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not stating that Thai people have an anything goes attitude towards sex,
regular people are usually very conservative in their views, but the
exchange of cash for sex is not reviled in quite the way it sometimes is
in the west.
