Thailand coin dating
This is a devious way to keep the recruitment numbers high and the deserters low.
I mean, once you've sold your body a few times the deed is done; it's pointless returning to disappoint your parents with the news that you didn't make it in the “big city” after all.
And it's this sugar-coated version of prostitution that makes it easier to ignore the truth.
However, the more I learnt about the industry, the social-economic structure of the country, the systematic oppression of the lower classes and regional prejudice, the more I couldn’t help but see the radiating internal sadness and longing to be respected… Strangely, men seem to get so caught up in the ego trip of being a “handsome man” that they neglect to notice that these bar girls are simply young Thai women, and by preference probably don't actually fancy western men.
Most of the samples dated were deposited during the late glacial stage (MIS 2).
I won’t lie: indeed my eyes danced when I first saw the bright lights, high heels, elegance and youthful beauty of the girls in the go-go bars, and it really didn’t compute that the hostesses in the bars were actually no different to the hookers lurking in the back streets of Soho, London.Firstly, let’s look at the demographic of the average Thai prostitute.A sub-standard school education, if she finished school at all.But as I have covered, the unfair cultural pressures and limited choice of economic progression force the hand into the fire.So the word “choice” become an ambiguous one at best.What I see in the bar is not a piece of meat to be exploited, but a girl that grew up believing that one day when she finishes school (if possible), she would find a good job and be able to make her parents proud.I don’t see a girl who grew up aspiring to be a dirty old man’s fantasy, or a girl who aspired to have nightly sex with western men she doesn't find attractive.Blog and forum owners happily let people thrash out misogynistic musings on their sites as link-bait to drive traffic, but this isn’t what I set up my blog to do, and the reality is that Thailand is so much more than the bar scene.It is part of it, but the longer you live here the more insignificant it becomes. But for all the hatred and idiocy ranted on forums and blogs by “barstool experts”, people would do well to remember that these girls are the daughters and sisters of other human beings, and at one time children with dreams and aspirations – just like our own children.Girl hears from another girl that working in a bar in the city, or on one of the popular tourist islands, is the best way to make fast money, and to meet a rich foreign boyfriend who will be prepared to take on her kids and support her parents (or a story very similar to that).Due to her lack of education, the girl then weighs up the other options as a cleaner, rice farmer or factory worker; facing ridiculous hours of work that will never provide enough money to make her children’s/parent’s lives any better than the current situation.
