  • History of Sex tourismAs a global industry appeared in Asia during Vietnam War, when USA troupes came to region (1961 till 1973 )At regular intervals battle-weary young men were sent to friendly neighboring countries to recover from the fighting. Hong Kong, the Philippines, and Thailand were the main destinations. The closest country was Thailand and it was also the most popular.

  • 8.7 million US troops Pattaya has a deserved reputation, having cultivated it's formidable sex industry during the Vietnam war era when our boys came to this onetime fisherman's village for some much needed R&R. The place caters nearly exclusivel to sex tourists, mostly from Europe. There were the occasional non-sex tourist types, as evidenced by the odd elderly or middle-aged married couple holding hands (or as we saw once, a couple holding hands with a Thai girl in the middle). And of course there was Eva and I, not there for the prostitution, but looking as if we were. Well, looking as if I was. It was a little disconcerting walking down the street holding Eva's hand, knowing that the local people were probably making not-so-wild assumptions. I did my best not o make eye contact with the other white men surrounding me, partially because it was too much to handle (like the man with hearing aid nibbling on some pretty young thing) but mostly because it just felt so icky-sticky-wrong. One time I made eye contact with one of the middle-agers who gave me the knowing nod, as if to say "Good going, mate. Have a great time!" Yeesh.
