    Weird Article

    Thailand's Sin Cities Struggle to Survive the Economic Downturn*|*Van Winkle's

    According to the Post, Pattaya has about 2,000 hotels with 136,000 rooms. If I had to guess, Id say half are whorehouses. So, good luck Pattaya. I'm no prude, but you're getting what you deserve.

    What you deserve?

    I'm guessing the author of that piece is a bit of a puritan 555

    Either that or he is pissed that a ladyboy caught him out.

    I would guess he is saying that 50% of the hotels cater to the p4p trade....hence "whorehouses"
    I wouldn't call them that but if my assumption is right in his meaning.......he wouldn't be wrong

    ^You mean if it is ok to bring back a BG, then it is a whorehouse????? If that is the criteria, then 50% of the hotel rooms in the world are whorehouses.

    Change from 'are able to' to 'regularly are used to' and I think it all becomes both true and fits the story..

    As LIL said above
    Much difference between "are able to" and "built for or cater to"......a huge difference actually.
    And I think that was his point. A lot of the hotels were built to cater to sex tourists and he trade.

    But of course he was just trying to stir the pot with that statement

    I also didn't really get the Bangkok Post quoting the TAT, with their hotel figures for Pattaya
    Those prices didn't seem too far off any of the 5 star, 4 star hotel prices in BKK away from the p4p scene in low season

    Come on guys, we are almost becoming 'right on' here. That was a snide, vindictive, piece written by someone who went to Pattaya once ten years ago and clearly has an agenda. He's preaching to an audience that want evidence to back up their puritanical, lop-sided, view of a country that most will never visit and could barely find on a map.

    I agree...people get so bent out of shape on this...you meet a girl..regardless of where she works or what she does..you bring her to your room..and now suddenly the hotel should be classified as a whorehouse?...Come On!..
    To me ..I would guess that a whorehouse by definition would be something like a place that has a selection of girls to choose from with rooms to do your business...Bill you're from Vegas....Mustang Ranch so to speak?

    I fail to see a big difference in picking up the girl in the house or outside - except you get more to choose from outside. Outside, you may even find a cashier.

    Another way to judge if a hotel is a whorehouse: Look at the mini bar. If it offer condoms, it is probably closer to a whorehouse than a family hotel.

    I really dont care what people do.. but lets be honest..

    What is pattaya ?? Are you really saying that 50% of its economy is not there to directly or indirectly service P4P visitors ??

    Supply their food, supply their accommodations, supply their inter whorehouse transportation, supply other distractions between boozing and whoring, etc etc etc..

    You could replace this thread with the Gayness thread.,......pretty much the same situations

    Of course he was using hyperbole and of course he has an agenda.
    I wouldn't call them whorehouses but most of the hotels in Pattaya were built for the p4p scene
    On most nights, a huge % of a hotel guests in Pattaya are engaging in the p4p scene
    So he likens it to a whorehouse

    Similar to the homophobes callings gays perverts, no?
