Which countries are cheapest sex heavens for sex tourism along with cost.? I am working for an NGO on Cheap sex tourism and its impact on the sexual health of the Countries. It would be helpful if you point to resource which also talks about the relationship between the cost of sex and STD prevalence.
The attraction of Pattaya in Thailand for most men is that they can make love to many beautiful prostitutes for very little money. The women in Pattaya cost about 20 dollars for a short time. Back in Europe and North America they may cost 5 times that or even 15 or 20 times that. Many men (and women) live out their fantasies in Pattaya as they may have several different women in one night or they may have more than one woman (or man) at the same time, all at prices that are relatively cheap compared to the West. Many of the girls are from Issan (Northeastern Thailand), and desperate for money. Flattery will get them everywhere and they are very good at it. They call the tourists gorgeous, sexy, handsome and beautiful, even if the foreigners bear a strong resemblance to the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Many of them are looking for a ticket out in the form of a farang husband. One of their sister's may have already gotten out, so they are encouraged by this. As time goes on, however, they become jaded though if their luck is not as good. Some end up staying in Pattaya for years and becoming mamasans, or recruiters for the bars. It is obvious that some of the girls are underage. The moral dilemma is that they don't think there is anything wrong with what they are doing (nor do many of their parents), and many of them seem to enjoying what they are doing. Prostitution is a billion dollar business and it brings in tons of money to Thailand every year. From the amount of money the customer pays the prostitute, to the amount spent on hotels, food, drinks, condoms, gifts, taxis etc. a phenomenal amount of money changes hands in the flesh trade and a lot of people profit by it. There is no doubt that Pattaya was developed due to the sex trade, maintained because of the sex trade, and prospers today because of the sex trade. http://images.google.com/images?hl=fa&lr=&um=1&sa=1&q=pattaya+girls+images&btnG=%D8%AC%D8%B3%D8%AA%D8%AC%D9%88+%D8%A8%D8%B1%D8%A7%DB%8C+%D8%AA%D8%B5%D8%A7%D9%88%D9%8A%D8%B1&start=0 http://www.scottmurray.com/Pattaya.htm http://www.thaipro.com/w101_thailand/thai_bar_girls_pictures_1.html
