Abstract

Prostitution in Thailand, has been highlighted both internationally and domestically as being particularly prevalent in Thai society. Between 2 to 300.000 women are said to be working in the sex industry. Links between prostitution and sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, have been established. Complexity of the sex industry, its organization and the way it operates, from the rural sector to the massage parlour are studied. The work also indicates how deeply the commercial sex industry is integrated into the thai social and economic life. Insights show the social forces supporting prostitution. - (GL)
