Sex workers are petitioning to get prostitution legalised in Thailand


Link Here22nd September 2020
Sex workers in Thailand have launched a petition calling for prostitution to be decriminalised and urging authorities to remove all penalties for selling and buying sex.

Empower Foundation, a group that supports sex workers, said it hoped to collect 10,000 signatures and present the petition to parliament to help persuade lawmakers.

Sex work is commonplace in Thailand and is generally tolerated but anti-prostitution laws are still on the law book and are occasionally revisited when the authorities fancy a crackdown or else the police fancy a donation.

Women and LGBT+ rights activists say the current law, which made prostitution illegal in 1960, does little to protect sex workers, while repeated arrests and fines for doing sex work has driven them further into poverty.

Thailand's extensive sex industry, largely caters to Thai men, but attracts international attention via go-go bars and massage parlours that cater for foreign visitors. A 2014 report by the U.N. agency fighting AIDS estimated that there were 123,530 sex workers in Thailand but advocacy groups put the figure at more than twice that number.

Adult prostitution is currently punishable by a fine of up to 40,000 baht ($1,274) or two years in prison, or both. More than 24,000 people were arrested, prosecuted and fined for sex work-related offences in Thailand last year, according to the Thai Police.

Comment: This idiot amazed me.

15th August 2014. From DavidT

It's about this guy who pays for a physical, erotic experience at a place where the staff deal with scores of clients daily and probably do a good (blow-) job. The the stupid sod complains that lack of a sense of affection spoiled his enjoyment ! Maybe he should buy a dog or stay home and take care of his grandparents.
