THAILAND - prudishness at home brothels

The disorder nightlife of Bangkok is no secret either within or outside the country. District of Patpong with its strip clubs than Soi Cowboy with its bars and nightclubs, through the avenues Phetchaburi and Ratchadaphisek home to a myriad of massage parlors and spas offering "special services" , showcases the thriving sex industry abound.

Moreover, Pattaya, Phuket and Chiang Mai, this trade is also flourishing. In these circumstances it is absurd to point fingers and condemn these three teenagers, aged 13, 14 and 16, who have only dance topless. Why should they be used as scapegoats when the misconduct prevalent throughout society? They had been drinking with friends before leaving their homes and, for them, in this way was nothing improper because they had already made in the past, "a place of entertainment where, for the price of entry and drinks, you can see shows naked.

And where, by removing the bottom, you can win a bottle of whiskey extra! "By pinpointing these teens and those who have posted the video on the Internet, police and government attest to the blatant hypocrisy of Thai society and its denial. By refusing to look reality in the face and continuing to deny the existence of evil, we would not give any solution.

Many argue that the activity of red light districts in Thailand is now a normal lifestyle and tourism industry centered on the sex trade provides substantial financial returns. I myself am a realist and I do not pretend that all these institutions, until the last brothel, may close their doors, or that Thailand should become a Buddhist country serene and morality.

I'm not a saint, who grew up in Thailand, I had my share of pranks in the places I just mentioned. But if New York manages to clear the way to Times Square and Boston managed to get rid of Combat Zone thanks to an energetic policy, why Bangkok could not he do that?
