Updated February 12, Bangkok city officials are urging young Thais to forgo sex on Valentine's Day this weekend and visit temples instead, as a far better way to mark the day of love. Thailand has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in South East Asia, public health officials said, and faces HIV infection rates among its gay population comparable to those in Africa's AIDS hotspots.
That is the opening statement of Bangkok Girl documentary, a documentary about Thailand and the stereotypes about sex trade in the country. In the past few years, Thailand has become a popular destination for tourists because of the beautiful countryside, rich history and tradition, as well as Thai massage. But director of the movie, Jordan Clark, argues that little has been done to change the narrative, and protect girls like Pla, the main protagonist of the documentary. The industry, even worse, is encouraged as a career option for marginalized women.
January 17, Days away from giving birth and living apart from her family, year-old Ying is one of a growing number of Thai teenagers to fall pregnant every year in a country where sex education is focused on the married. Despite its anything-goes image, Thailand has a conservative streak, meaning that young people are told to abstain from intercourse altogether instead of being educated about using protection, a situation that experts say has driven soaring rates of teenage pregnancy.

While working in the bars, young women often become pregnant, leave their children to virtually raise themselves in the villages, and then those children grow up to head off to the cities to work in the sex industry as well. By mentoring families, investing in education, and providing alternative economic opportunities, Breakthrough Thailand hopes to break the cycle and realize their full potential. The organization provides residential education and leadership training for at-risk teen girls, teacher training, supplemental educational activities, and a safe hangout for village youth.
The scandal erupted after the mother of one teen victim fled to Bangkok and told the media that girls were being blackmailed into sex work. Bangkok AFP - When senior bureaucrats visited the remote Thai province where local official Boonyarit worked, the routine was often the same: welcome them with the finest food and drink and then bring out the teen girls, often referred to as "dessert". The tradition -- known by the euphemistic Thai phrase "treat to food, lay down the mat" -- refers to the expectation that underlings lavish superiors and VIPs with local delicacies, top-notch accommodation and sex services. Until recently the most sinister part of that tradition, the procurement of underage girls, was well-known but rarely discussed.
Children and teens will be expected to be at home by 10pm, and not wandering around with boyfriends, girlfriends or unaccompanied. Reasonable enough, when you think about it. Not something any Thai kid or teen would relish happening, particularly if their parents are strict.
