Live sex stage shows while Thai girls trained in the art of nothing very much try to entice you. Our girls will entice you with their artful conversation. Balls. Our girls will try to get you drunk so you don't bother them too much. Our girls will try to get you to buy them an overpriced smear of cola in the bottom of a tiny glass. Our girls will try to get as much money out of you as possible, with only one thing offered in return: themselves.
Willing, pliant, young flesh. The sort that you can't get at home. The sort that you don't want at home because the wife would get upset. They're so cheap, it's not like prostitution. Don't laugh. I've heard that.
Watch them, the twisted ballet of fat man in suit and slim woman in thong. The more he spends, the more he gets... 200 Baht here, a hand there, 400 Baht here, a gentle rubbing. A little more for a little more. The mechanics of trade. She's getting what she wants from him. She's the one in control. He is being used. And when he loses he wins. Mostly, he won't even realise that he's being used.
The tragedy of prostitution lies elsewhere, with the economies that create flesh tourism, the organised crime, annuity bribing and shameless profiteering. The women are the victim in this scenario. But so are their clients.
