    The Virgin Trade

    Just downloaded a torrent of this and started watching it.

    A quote from the first few minutes from a typical Pattaya resident:

    "My wife's 20 year's younger than me, much more personable, not as demanding, much more attentive - but at the same time, seem's to have a stronger grip on your bollocks."

    Plenty of shots of seedy old geezers staggering around Pattaya - wonder if there's any TD'ers on film....

    Anyway, busy now, so will watch this later
    You, sir, are a God among men....
    Short Men, who aren't terribly bright....
    More like dwarves with learning disabilities....

    The Virgin Trade - Thailand Sex Tourism : Movies > Documentary - Mininova

    Loads of seeders.

    "Filmmaker Stuart Kershaw embarks on a journey through Thailand's red light districts to investigate the world's largest sex industry. This exploration of international sex tourism turns expectation on its head, in an expedition that is as brutal in its honesty as it is unexpected in its conclusions. But who are the victims? Are parents selling their children into brothels to finance lavish Western lifestyles? Or do orphans fill the demand - smuggled into sex-work after disasters like the Tsunami? Stuart bulldozes a host of Thailand's urban myths whilst viciously affirming widespread exploitation and deceit."


    I suspect this is going to upset a few people and some people who've appeared on it using their real names (eg. the Manager of DollHouse) may regret their decisions.

    Bugger, I did have some work to do, but I think I'll finish watching this now.

    i don't think I've greened you before owing to your obvious anti welsh venom.

    Thanks for the link, I'm downloading it.
    But it sounds like sensationalist, moralistic western bollocks to me.

    Bar girls and GoGo girls are not sold into anything- they do it for the extra money, some in the hope of meeting a nice western whoremonger who will pander to their every whim, because of course all falang are filthy rich and the family can have a nice new car and house. Then theres the girls (plenty in Pattaya) who hold down jobs in shops & restaurants but turn the occasional(ish) trick to earn some extra cash.

    If you're looking for true exploitation in the flesh trade, as opposed to pandering to an uninformed audience that will believe any salacious story because they want to, look elsewhere.

    It was actually pretty good and the guys who made the movie actually dispelled many of the myths.
    i think the movie took a different direction to the one they expected it to take at the beginning.

    It was a little bit too short really and some of the avenues he takes are cut short. (the road trip to Chiangmai was badly edited)....otherwise it was certainly worth the download.

    Ok.

    I think the kids in Mae Sai had never seen a ginger guy before.

    Also think that the guy from the Dolls House came across as a complete plum. Hopefully somebody will give him a slap.

    Some of the edits are a bit much as well. The backpacker forcing the girl to kiss is cut as it looks like she is pushing him away.

    I think CMN's prognosis was pretty spot on. They set out to do a 'shocking expose', found the facts on the ground did not meet the hype, and were honest enough to report it as they saw it.
    The sleasiest characters were the drunk backpackers as it came across. Anyway, hand held amateur type stuff, but quite an enjoyable ride, albeit a rather shallow mural.

    Yep. Hopefully someone will give the silly blond tart one as well.

    I just got done watching this movie, not via BT, I actually bought the DVD! I ordered it from the distributor located in the UK, so the customs label on the outside of the package said "The Virgin Trade DVD." I wonder what the woman in the mail room @ my job thought when she saw this!

    I thought the movie was a little scattered, it seemed to have a hard time picking a actual subject matter, I mean the main subject matter was prostitution, but was it child prostitution, AIDS, the virgin trade, human trafficking, this guy hanging out with some bargirls. So I found that to be a problem.

    I'm also confused on the filmmakers intention of dispelling the stereotype of LOS being the mecca for sex tourism. Is it? He would flash some #'s saying there's no way it could be, then he talked about old/fat white guys w/ these Thai honey's.

    Over-all I liked it, mainly because it was a documentary about Thailand. I also liked the ginger Welshman. He seemed like a good kid.

    Oh yeah, I think the crying bar girl was a scam. I would like to hear some of the veterans of Thailand's opinion on that part. She was playing him like a chump, & I'm sure he paid her a nice tip, not for "boom-boom," but out of pity.

    The bit at the end when he says 'after all, i never saw any Thai men in the gogo bars' is very misleading.
    he is trying to say that western men are to blame for the sex scene.

    he obviously isn't aware of the massive local market away from the glitz.

    GREAT POINT! Westernmen are only a small part of the problem, it just makes a better story showing the 50 year old Aussie w/ a 20 year old girl from Isaan.

    But he did mention the problem of Thai men passing the AIDS virus on to their families.

    I forgot to mention my favorite part! The Thai sex workers measuring their Thai customers pee-pee's, to find out they are a lot smaller then western men!

    Made me proud.
