I have lived in Thailand over 10 years and you cant miss seeing the sex trade even if you are not looking for it. Not just Phuket, but Pattaya Bangkok and rest of Thailand. Most of the girls are from Issan or North East Thailand. That is the poorest area if Thailand. The Thai culture is the daughter is responsible for taking care of her parents in old age. That today has translated to taking care of all the family. The daughter thru peer pressure culture pressure to provide money no matter the cost to herself. Brothers will have a family, home . While often the sister gives up her life. I have seen it. Holiday daughter comes home with the money while the father and brothers take the money get drunk play cards.
Human trafficking is a serious crime. Often a person trying to escape is tortured or killed.
There are many legitimate well organized NGO that can and will help.
We do recommend this NGO.
If you need help or know someone that needs help in Thailand.
This NGO can help
We suggest A21 , Zoe international for children. Also Nightlight in Bangkok are excellent legitimate NGO.
What can be done!
For Freedom International is a organization that offers the girls a chance to break away.
About For Freedom. Text is from their web site.
For Freedom International started with a dream to see the marginalized, vulnerable, and exploited set free from the injustice of oppression. That dream has drawn our team from around the globe to Thailand, a truly beautiful country in the throes of combatting human trafficking and sexual exploitation. FFI has begun our work in the province of Phuket, one of the largest sex tourism destinations in Southeast Asia, and we’re implementing our holistic approach outward, trusting God to bring freedom and hope to the people of Phuket, to the rest of Thailand, to Southeast Asia, and back to those living in the West.

Occidental men of all ages, if you are looking for a beautiful girlfriend, come to the Philippines!
Candidates for this year’s Miss Philippines- Earth beauty pageant. The Philippines already won all International beauty pageants: Miss World, Miss Universe, Miss International, and Miss Earth.
Ask any Caucasian male how his ego feels in the Philippines, the answer is unanimous :” like a God. I would never dream of attracting so many beautiful women back home. And so easily“. The rudest ones would add “country of cheap booze and cheap stunning women!”.
Does it mean that those Filipinas who work in bars and sadly well known clubs have better tastes than us Occidental women? “all they want is to get pregnant, they are a bunch of gold diggers, real bitches” is how most expat women (and rich Filipinas) will tell you. While their husbands will probably nod their head and smile at…
I’m going to kick this off with a pet peeve of mine. When people talk about places they visit, I’ve almost never heard a bad review. Ever. About anywhere. It’s weird, but it’s kind of politically incorrect to say that a place sucks. But even beyond that, it’s also a downer, which nobody wants to hear. When people ask “how are you?” I have found that they rarely actually want to know. It’s just a greeting. But let’s be real here: sometimes I’m not doing so well. And not every place I visit is amazing.
Varanasi is a place that should have been amazing. It was beautiful, it was interesting, it was a place unlike anything I’ve ever seen before. But when I think back on it, I don’t think about that. I think about the endless conga line of assholes that tried to rip me off so shamelessly. I’ll…
My kids are Jewish by their Mum and Protestant by their Dad. Mr Attila was born in a Buddhist country and his sister in a totally secular one. We worked in Muslim and Hindu places and we are currently living on a Catholic island. How could we possibly educate our children in a single religion? if there is one thing I learnt from all those years working in war affected countries, is that education is paramount to prevent violence. Teach your children how to respect each other and the people around them for who they are and to honour all religions – as each is a pathway to the One God.
The Philippines are a Catholic country, even though not formally anymore. But you’ll always be asked “are you a Catholic?”. My natural answer would be “why do you care? does it make any difference to you whether…
