    Phuket Tourists, Children 'Forced to Watch Patong Sex Show'

    Phuket Tourists, Children 'Forced to Watch Patong Sex Show' - Phuket Wan

    Phuket Tourists, Children 'Forced to Watch Patong Sex Show'

    By Pathomporn Kaenkrachang
    Tuesday, October 18, 2011

    PHUKET: A Chinese tourist has accused a tour company of coercing a group of visitors, including children, to go to a live sex show on Phuket.

    The tourist was so concerned that on returning home to China, he telephoned a Phuket newspaper journalist to report what had happened on his recent visit.

    When told of the man's complaint, Patong councillor Weerawit Kruesombut said today that he would investigate the matter.

    Chinese tourism is likely to grow rapidly on Phuket - but a report that children as young as 10 have been forced to watch a sex show in Patong will not encourage families to visit.

    Group leaders on some tours from China have an invidious reputation for forcing their customers to make stops at souvenir shops, but the man's new claim takes tour intimidation to a new level.

    The man was not coy in his description to the Phuket journalist.

    ''The man said his tour group were forced to watch a f---ing show in Soi Bangla,'' the journalist told Phuketwan this afternoon.

    ''He said there were children among the group and that they sat through the show.''

    It's known that sex shows have never been more obvious in Patong, Phuket's lively west coast nightlife capital.

    Go-go and pole dancers now invite stares in open bars at street level and touts hand out fliers for ''free'' sex shows where the compulsory first drink costs 500 baht.

    The man who contacted the journalist said that his tour guide insisted on everyone in the group paying 2500 baht to go to a sex show - and then made them all sign disclaimers saying that they went to the show of their own volition.

    The man's accusation is likely to cause shock waves not just in the China tour business, but also in Patong, where many businesspeople dislike the increasing sleaziness.

    Others say that pornography is universal. As Phuketwan has reported, these days the retail elements are also growing in number, making for an arm-wrestle in the old Soi Bangla between Soi Blingla and Soi Bonkla.

    While there are more sex shows than ever, Councillor Weerawit said today that he believed the live sex that was once a feature of Patong shows had disappeared.

    Any night in Patong,steady streams of tourists can be noted going to an upstairs show in Soi Bangla after touts tell them they will see ping-pong balls fired by a woman.

    Councillor Weerawit said he believed that the sex show operators turn away Thais and only let in overseas tourists.
    "Slavery is the daughter of darkness; an ignorant people is the blind instrument of its own destruction; ambition and intrigue take advantage of the credulity and inexperience of men who have no political, economic or civil knowledge. They mistake pure illusion for reality, license for freedom, treason for patriotism, vengeance for justice."-Simón Bolívar

    The Chinese love their table tennis, so they're hardly likely to leave.

    Probably upset because he wanted ping pong balls, smoking pussy, live animals, etc.

    I still haven't seen a live sex show in Patong!
    Where are they held?

    This article strikes me as a bit irresponsible and alarmist without providing any specifics.

    I'm doubtful that they'd force kids into such a show.

    I find this totally unacceptable and may write to the council and TAT. I have been in every bar and go-go in Patong and I never saw a live sex show and was never even told about one. WTF? I only travelled 5000 miles to get there

    You always see something new with the animal shows and this time it was a turtle coming out of a lady's thingy. And these bars all charge only 99 baht for the 1st beer. Bargain.

    There was one bar where they tried to tap me for 800 baht for a drink so I walked out. Maybe that was the sex show but for 800 baht they can go fuck themselves.

    So they paid money, and then even signed a form saying they wanted to see the show, then went to see the show, maybe not as good as it was claimed to be?

    It wasn't just the specifics they omitted. I can find no mention of a map or directions. Shocking.

    ^ I was at LAX and almost got trampled by about 100 Chinese shuffling after a tour guide running at full speed with flag on a 6 foot pole. It was in the gate and I wondered how he got that "weapon" through security.

    Too Funny, I never understood it!
    Made me laugh again thinking about it.
    Maybe safety in numbers? Money in Numbers too.

    Some chinese travel agents sell tour at a loss to get customers and then expect to make money with commission when tourists go shopping. But sometime a particular group is not interested to spend money in the designated shops and things can then take a nasty turn. Some groups have been locked in shops and denied drinks, access to the toilet ... until they had spend a certain amount of money. Others have been dumped in the middle of nowhere once the tour operator realized he won't get his money back.

    Most probably something similar happent to this poor old man.
    The things we regret most is the things we didn't do

    I think the focus of the story is Children Watching Pole Dancing, Poor Old Man?
    Just say NO! Have a pair, and don't follow the little Pink Flag.
    Go to Tibet or Mongolia not Patong!
    Duh, really unreal...

    They always investigate and never come up with anything useful.

    Yep. I used to enjoy the drive-through safari parks best. You used to get baboons masturbating on the car windscreen whilst removing the wing mirrors.
    As a cultural highlight it was probably up there with Patong.

    AM way China is flying 14000 Chinese to Phuket in April for a free junket! They will come in waves for 4 days to attend a conference. Should be a fun time for all. No wonder the Authorities keep talking about the number of tourists going up! Even with the influx local expats are saying that many areas seem deserted of tourists?

    Do you think this is because all the chinese are being herded into sex shows for days at a time?

    No, I think it's because they've probably got about Bt100 a day to spend.
