Female Sex Tourism in Thailand: A Case Study of Bangkok

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper will be an analysis of female sex tourism in Thailand based on observations I conducted this past summer at three entertainment zones in Bangkok. Current literature regarding sex tourism makes a key divide between the labels afforded to men and women. Overwhelmingly, men are marked as sex tourists and women as romance tourists (Phillips, 2008; Pruitt and LaFont, 1995; Jeffreys, 2003). Most research on female sex tourism is based on case studies from Africa, the Caribbean, and Indonesia. Interestingly, no published studies specifically examine female sex/romance tourism in Thailand despite its nefarious reputation for widespread prostitution. Based on observation and interviews, my research finds that the distinction around “romance” is not well founded.
