STD has become very wide spread and has become so common that when you get an STD in Thailand you can get these for free.

» Thai Tales by Mike Bell
Initially this collection of short stories examined the many sided relationships between young Thai ladies and older Western men. Many of the relationships are doomed from the start: â€˜Remember Your Firstâ€™ and â€˜Rich Man, Poor Manâ€™. I looked too at the conditions in which many farangs live whilst in Thailand. For many it is in a walled and gated community where relationships can become strained in this confinement; â€˜The Committeeâ€™ or â€˜On Guardâ€™. Living in Pattaya for over five years many of the stories are set against this backdrop; â€˜The Auctionâ€™ and â€˜Room 101â€™. Some of the stories reflect the influx of visitors of many nationalities; the Russian â€˜Vladimir and the jet-ski problem; the Indian tourists Rajiv and Rahul and the young backpackers who take incriminating photos in a Go-Go bar; the â€˜Chocolate manâ€™ who rescues a damsel in distress. I started to take more of an interest in the local population. How does it feel for a Thai child to be abandoned by her father? â€˜Looking For Papaâ€™ explores this. How great a stigma does a Thai family experience when the daughter contracts AIDs? There is the often violent solution to business problems between Thais; â€˜The Competitive Edgeâ€™. There is the brotherly love shown by a Thai boy when his retarded twin is threatened. If you love living in Thailand and are fascinated, like me, by the native population or if you like your stories to have satisfying endings flavoured with revenge, this collection is for you.
» Feast Day of Fools by James Lee Burke

And when soulless Preacher Jack Collins reemerges, the cold-blooded killer may prove invaluable to Hackberry. This time, he and the Preacher have a common enemy.

» Love in the Time of Money by Thomas Shulich
Since the late 20th century Thailand has been associated with a thriving international sexual services industry. One specialized niche of this industry markets young local men as paid exhibitionists to older foreign admirers. This book explores erotic love among these men. It is a study of vacation boyfriends, male sex workers, and international gay tourism. It represents ethnographic fieldwork conducted from 1997 to 2002 in Chiangmai City. Going beyond academic analysis of sexuality in terms of Â¿discourses of powerÂ¿ Â¿ issues of identity politics, normality, perversion, and deviance Â¿ this work explores intimate connections and the sociology of love. Three analytical perspectives Â¿ cultural ideologies, sexual marketplaces, and erotic roles Â¿ are deployed to investigate how commercial and cultural factors facilitate and frustrate, enhance and distort, the erotic love which men of different racial and social classes experience for one another. This work contributes to the research into the patois of cultural values generated at the intersections between modern Asian and Western societies. It should also be of interest to scholars of gender and sexuality.
» Power & Beauty by (Rapper) T. I.
Hip-hop artist Tip "T.I." Harris has received every acclaim the music world has to offer. Now, working with bestselling celebrity collaborator David Ritz, T.I. applies all his talent and experience to the world of fiction by creating the epic love story of Power and Beauty. After the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul â€œPowerâ€ Clay allows himself to be guided by Slim, a local businessman. Slim always has the best of everything, and Power is sure that if he learns Slim's ways, he'll make something of himself--and perhaps be worthy of Tanya â€œBeautyâ€ Long. From Chicago to Miami to New York, through drugs, women, and violence, Power makes the difficult transition from boy to man and, in doing so, begins to question if those who have taught him--including Slim--truly have his best interests at heart. Beauty has always known that the only person she can rely on is herself. After her mother died when she was eleven years old, she was adopted by close family friend Charlotte Clay. But with Charlotte's death, Beauty knows she's no longer safe and protected--especially as Power gets sucked into a new kind of life. As soon as she can, she turns her back on Atlanta--and the growing love she feels for Power--for a chance to make it in the Big Apple. With a successful fashion career on the horizon, Beauty takes New York by storm with her wit, business savvy, and breathtaking good looks. But she's never forgotten those she left behind. And when it becomes clear that Power needs her, Beauty will risk everything to save the man she loves.

It is a comprehensive summary of past research by academics and original primary and secondary research by the authors and has examples from Asia, Australasia and the USA.

In Thailand, a $4 billion per year tourist industry is the linchpin of the modernization process called the "Thai Economic Miracle". And what is Thailand's main attraction? Sex for hire. Year after year young women are lured to Bangkok to staff the teeming brothels, massage parlors, and sex bars that cater to male tourists from the United States, Western Europe, Japan, Australia, the Gulf States, Malaysia, and Singapore. Developed from Lillian S. Robinson's article in The Nation, Night Market traces the historical, cultural, material, and textual traditions that have combined in unique ways to establish sex tourism as an integral part of the developing Thai economy. It explores international sex tourism from the perspectives of economic-development planning, forced labor market choices, international sexual alienation, and textual traditions that have constructed sexual "Other" cultures in Western imagination.

Bua Boonmee gives us an insight into the life of one of the capital's bar girls and exposes the 'Sometimes I wonder was I born to be unfortunate; is this life my destiny? I pray to Buddha that this not be the case. My life seems to be that of a country girl who has spent her days escaping from a tiger, only to be eaten by a crocodile. Mine is an ever worsening tale with no end in sight.' You see, I am a prostitute, though farangs prefer to call women like me 'bar girls'. I believe the term is more acceptable to westerners' ears. But to a girl like me, it is all the same. 'You can buy me for 2,000 baht a night. In return, I will do anything that is asked of me, but I won't kiss customers- some things are just too intimate to do with a stranger. Kissing is for a wife or girlfriend; sex is for Thai girls like me. "Miss Bangkok" is a vivid, powerful and moving memoir of a life spent in prostitution in Thailand. Poor and uneducated, Bua Boonmee escaped an abusive marriage only to end up in the go-go bars of Patpong. There, in the notorious red-light district of Bangkok, she succumbed to prostitution in an effort to support her family. Bua's story is one of resilience and courage in the face of abuse and poverty. Her confessions will make you laugh and cry, cringe and applaud. She will change your perception of prostitution forever.
» Sex Slaves by Louise Brown

Here are the voices of some of the worldâ€™s most silent and abused womenâ€”women who have been forced into prostitution by the men they trust. This is their story, including the journey from home to captivity, the horrors of "seasoning" for prostitution, and the hidden life within the brothel.

» Sex Trafficking by Siddharth Kara
Every year, hundreds of thousands of women and children are abducted, deceived, seduced, or sold into forced prostitution, coerced to service hundreds if not thousands of men before being discarded. These trafficked sex slaves form the backbone of one of the world's most profitable illicit enterprises and generate huge profits for their exploiters, for unlike narcotics, which must be grown, harvested, refined, and packaged, sex slaves require no such "processing," and can be repeatedly "consumed." Kara first encountered the horrors of slavery in a Bosnian refugee camp in 1995. Subsequently, in the first journey of its kind, he traveled across four continents to investigate these crimes and take stock of their devastating human toll. Kara made several trips to India, Nepal, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Denmark, Albania, Moldova, Mexico, and the United States. He witnessed firsthand the sale of human beings into slavery, interviewed over four hundred slaves, and confronted some of those who trafficked and exploited them.
» Thailand Love Talk by Terence Doyle
The Land of Smiles has many attractions to the overseas visitor, but none more powerful or better appreciated around the world than the alluring smiles of the young ladies working in its many bars. The magnetic draw of beautiful, lissome Thai bar girls sees tens of thousands of westerners arrive, phrase books in hand â€“ and confusion reigning from the moment they try to engage in meaningful conversation with their new-found â€˜best friendsâ€™. Communications breakdowns in such situations are the norm, rather than the exception â€“ and they are multi-faceted, their roots and tentacles reaching far beyond simple linguistic barriers. Love Talk takes a humorous look at some of the communications barriers faced by westerners enjoying for the first time the delights of long nights sipping cold beers in the company of warm-hearted women eager to get to know them better. With an insightful nod to the cultural divide that separates the typical western bar-lover and his new Thai girlfriend, Love Talk fills in the blanks and settles a few scores along the way.

Jeffrey Eugenides creates a new kind of contemporary love story in "his most powerful novel yet"
» Sex Tourism In Bangkok by Peter F. Friedmann
They say that prostitution is the worldâ€™s oldest profession; we donâ€™t know if that is true, we can safely assume that there were also thieves and fighters in ancient times too, but what we do know is that like any profession there is a labour market. Like any profession the labour market is going to be more saturated in some countries than it is in others, and when there are plenty of skilled workers the price of their services fall! That is what you pretty much have in Thailand, hundreds of thousands of stunning girls offering you sexual services and escort services in exchange for payment. There are more girls, boys, and ladyboys in Thailand than there are checkout staff in California. Men from all over the developed world head to Thailand to party, live like a king, and to fuck as much as they want â€“ they can live a playboy lifestyle for $1000 a month. You would need a fortune of $50 million or more to live like Hugh Heffner in America right? Maybe the same to live like Peter Stringfellow in the United Kingdom. If you donâ€™t have millions of dollars a middle aged man or an elderly man, and any young man who has a beer belly, simply isnâ€™t going to be able to walk into a bar, pick any girl, take her back to your hotel, and then do whatever you want to her for as long as you want to do it. In Thailand you can, because in Thailand you are rich.

» Behind The Smile by Owen Jones
Lek was born the eldest child of four in a typical rice farming family. She did not expect to do anything any different from the other girls in her class in the northern rice belt of Thailand. Typically that would be: work in the fields for a few years; have a few babies; give them to mum to take care of and back to work until her kids had their own children and she could stop working to take care of them. One day a catastrophe occurred out of the blue - her father died young and with huge debts that the family knew nothing about. Lek was twenty and she was the only one who could prevent foreclosure. The only way she knew was to go to work in her cousin's bar in Pattaya. She went as a waitress-cum-cashier, but when she realised that she was pregnant by her worthless, estranged husband, things had to change. She had the baby, gave it to her mum and went back to work. However, now she needed real money to provide a better life for her child and to make up for spending its whole youth 500 miles away. She drifted into the tourist sex industry. The book relates some of her 'adventures', her dreams and nightmares and her 'modus operandi'. It tries to show, from Lek's point of view, what it really is like to be a Thai bar girl - the hopes and frustrations, the hopes and the let-downs, the hopes and the lies and deceit that are part of her every day life. Thailand is often referred to as the Land of Smiles and the author of this book agrees that it is, having spent nearly a decade there.

From the age of three, the very people who were meant to be looking after and protecting Sarah Forsyth were sexually abusing her. Somehow she managed to overcome the hurt and heartbreak of a horrific childhood, and build a new and happy life for herself as a nursery nurse. Then, one day, Sarah spotted a newspaper advert for a job in a creche in Amsterdam. Thrilled by the prospect of a fresh start away from Newcastle and all the memories it held, she eagerly signed up. But within minutes of arriving in Amsterdam her life began to fall apart. There was no creche and no job: Sarah was a victim of sex-trafficking. Fed cocaine and cannabis, and forced at gunpoint to work as a prostitute in the red light district of Amsterdam, Sarah was turned from a young innocent English girl into a desperate and terrified crack whore. Riddled with fear about what her pimps would do to her if they caught her trying to run away, it took Sarah almost a year to find the strength to fight back and escape.
