Wrong answer ! Adm, (-1) Do you have a $ dallar sign on your face?

Create the decent jobs

Post by Lao Pride Administrator on 21st Dec, 2009 at 3:06am
There are decent jobs otherwise everybody would all become a prostitute.

People have a choice in life, they choose that direction because they want quick and easy money.

Working in a decent job is a slow process of earning income.

60% wrong 40% right + You got mad, so I graded you " F" = "O"
" No one choose to do that job" asking yourself first, Do you want to be a hooker? The answer is" No". There is no way out for them to be in that mess. I had asked 10 hookers wich this question : Do you want your daughters to be like you? I recieved 15 answers " NO ". so you the math. Why 15 out of 10 ?

You right " ppl have chioce in life" but for this option is " NO" Unless that person is real b*tch.

" quick and easy money" I don't think it quick and easy money at all,
to me it quick to get the disease and easy to die.

I'm never mad and I didn't know this was a test. Look, they can get any job. Work in a restaurant as a waitress or go and clean toilets somewhere, it doesn't matter what job it is, a job is a job.

They want to be prostitutes for the money, it's as simple as that. I'm sure they use some kind of protection during sex.

Sometimes Lao girls are abducted or tricked into working as prostitutes in Thailand like the example below:

Dam*, this is sad. They are very beautiful gals.
One thing I don't think they want to be that way but to feed themselves and families back home that why they turned or get tricked into this sex slaves. This is real bad what do you think? Is there any way we can help them off or shut it down. I thought the Communist is best to hadle this kind of problem. What is matter with the half-Ass Lao Communist?

Just like I had said: If you are a Laos president this kind of bullsh*t won't happenning, right? if Yes, we need to get you up there.

It is sad that girls are being sold into prostitution but that's how they operate in Laos and Thailand.

The girl in the black tank top holding a glass of drink is the pimp, she is negotiating with the guy. And notice that each girl has a number. All the guy has to do is choose a number that he is interested in and the girl of his choice will accompany him for a drink, and eventually to the bedroom if he wants to have sex.

"Operate in Laos"
I was going to tell you to take off the " LAOPRIDE.COM" out of those pictures you had posted. Its look bad to us. We are laotians have pride and dignity with lovely culture. Leave just only pictures.

"If you can send them over here, I will marry them" they are beautiful
If Lao-Govt can't creating jobs for them why don't send them over here(western countries). We will find them the decent jobs( WELCOME TO USA ) Land of Free.


May God have mercy on them( they been lost )

Post by TT on 22nd Dec, 2009 at 9:32am
I believe many of these girls turn to prostitution because it's the last resort.
They have no money, no job, their families at home will go hungry if they do nothing, they can only turn to prostitution. It's a sad cycle of events that will happen over and over again.

It's simple case of supply and demand, where there is a demand for sex , a pimp will always supply. There will always be a demand because people (men) will always want to have sex and reproduce.

I read from wikipedia: "Forty-four percent of the population live below the international poverty line of the equivalent of US$1.25 a day" this is in Laos. For these girls that turn to prostitution it's a way to get out of this poverty line, and the only way to do so is to sell their bodies for money.

I read the Admins comments and I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinions but i find your quite insensitive to such a sensitive issue. You should really open your eyes. These girls do not enjoy what they do, they have no choice but to do it...to support their families and to survive.

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Lao Pride Administrator on 23rd Dec, 2009 at 3:46am
TT, there is no last resort. There are jobs if they are willing to work the hard way and earn a monthly income like other people.

With prostitution, it is very easy to earn quick "cash in hand" every day. They also get free tips and drinks from customers and free accommodation and meals supplied by the pimps who look after them. And not to the mention the enjoyment of socialising every night. They enjoy it, they don't need to support their families. Their parents are old enough to support themselves and it's their responsibility to support their children. If they can't do that then they are not good parents.

Most people in Laos earn more than US$1 a day.

Are you one of them ? If you are, I won't mind at all. Welcome to my Kingdom(US), I be willing to send you a ticket if you want to start a new life, let me know Okay.

"quick cash, easy money,free meal" I don't see that way.
I have seen the POVERTY, NO JOBS, NO SKILLS, NO CONNECTION(to Govt office) and the families are poor. If you look at it, what the options do they have? Nothing

There will be JOBS if the Govt's willing to create
There will be WAYS if the Govt's willing to pave
There will be No prostitutes in Laos if the Lao Govt's willing to cease
There will be No Corruptors in Laos if the Lao Govt's officials are willing to step down

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Lao Pride Administrator on 25th Dec, 2009 at 9:36pm
Are you one of their clients? If you are, I won't mind at all because you have to do what you have to do.

Every poor family in Laos would become prostitutes if there weren't any options.

There are always options in life, it's the path you choose that matters.

I am not only a client I also a president of "WHORE* CLUB FOR WOMEN" ( JUST KIDDING )

Since 1982 I haven't seen Laos yet. I wish one day I will go to see by my own eyes before I die. I heard about it alot of things had changed. Lao people had changed from Lao pride to be Lao prostitutes( I won't blamed them)" you have to do what you have to do to survive in this evil world that God had created it for us to suffer until that day will come". Just like you had said: Lao is not fully Communist( I see ) today Lao is just a Half-Ass Communist( I called: a baby ) still drinking milk from the big brother Vietnam and father Russia.

I like the Fully Communist " North Korea " you will never heard about prostitution in North Korea, This is real hardcore Communism they are for real.....not like China,Vietnam and Russia(Fake-Ass). Laos is just a new born baby to the Communist world.

Open your eyes and ears then you will see and hear







Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Lao Pride Administrator on 26th Dec, 2009 at 11:55pm
We suffer while we are alive.

That's why when there is a new born baby, we go to "Ngun Gum" in Lao culture. "Gum" is all about stress and misery ahead in life.

And when someone dies, we go to "Hean Dee", meaning "Good house". It is "dee" because they are in peace, there is no more suffering and unhappiness for them.

So remember the words "Ngun Gum" and "Hean Dee". ;D

"Bad day" I get mad sometimes(never deny)so What about you?
Who are you and what is your job? What is purpose of this website you and your comrades had created it? To me; you want to have the freedom of expression or you just want to have fun.
Just like I had said it before " I may say somethings you may not like"

"Prostitution in Laos" is disgracing ourselves(Laotians) culture and tradition. Your leadership is lack of knowledge or turned a blind eyes to the people. I do understand for surviving when there is less options for the poor to find the way of making the living.

Today Laos is " The Land of million Hookers" I am Laotian but what can I(we) do? I knew it not nice at least I had admitted can't deny it.
Unless your Sorry-Ass president are willing to clean up this mess or resign (step down) let a new generation take over then Laos will get better.

My job is to administer this forum and Lao Pride is created for people from all walks of life to learn about Laos in a positive way.

You are free to express your opinion but please tell us something that we don't already know. Prostitution is nothing new in Laos and the rest of South-East Asia for that matter. It is their business, if you don't like it then visit the temples instead. Nobody is telling you to associate with prostitutes, I don't like them either but they can do what they want to do in their life.

I like your rule, and we should always think that way because it is correct.

I believe the girls on the streets have options in life. They just want to live a better lifestyle in the city, but when they return home to their families in the countryside, it's back to wearing the "sinh".

Poverty cause the major damage to our livelihood. Can't blame no one. Human have to find food oneway or another.

If I have nothing to eat I might rob you, simple just like that.
Right or wrong is not up to us. God knew who we are. We were been created to be this way. "Suffer before you die".

That's why when a new baby is born, we go to "Ngan GUM". Gum means lots of suffering ahead.

And when someone dies, we go to "Hean DEE". Dee means good because the person is at peace and there is no more suffering.

They all said the same thing. they dislike the prostitute in Laos,but they all have been using their service.... :o I guess these people don't have a social skill to pick up a nice girl in Laos. I am sure many of nice Laos girl that don't go into this kind of work. then again, These girl is to smart to being pick up by these clowns. All they can do is paying the girl for their service...

I'm little late to jump into this conversation...  I didn't get a chance to read everyone comments regarding this particular topic.

Prostitution is the quickest way to earn the $$$ and perhaps enjoy the pleasure at the same time:-).  I'm not condoning this line of work either.  When majority of the people are poor and living standard is below poverty, people will do anything to survive...  Which means selling their body and soul, if they have to.   It is sad thing to see..

Admin - You always seem to be speaking for ALL Laotian people in Laos.

In fact when I visited in 07' I went to Vang Vieng, Luang Prabang, and Pon Hong, there were parts THAT I SAW where people live in straw hut-like homes, typically built on stilts. The ones I visited have no running water lines, all they have are wells. Sewer facilities are just a hole in the ground, with no toilet seats. They go out hunting for birds, wild animals and the likes, fishing and looking for certain plants, vegetables and bamboo! These people have no education, no money and certainly NO AIR CONDITION HOME like you.

So please when you say "we're doing fine" I don't think you speak for the villagers and peasants out in the rural areas. Some of them have NOT even seen a computer before and have no idea what the INTERNET is. They are "doing fine" because they CAN'T SPEAK OUT OR COMPLAIN about the lack of materials and facilities, because they will be jailed or persecuted~ THEY HAVE NO VOICE! So they have to live life DAY BY DAY TO SURVIVE! You tell me they're doing fine?

You are doing fine because you live in the city, you have an education and probably earn more $$ than the average Laotian and probably born to middle class or rich family.

So please don't speak for ALL LAOTIANS!  

So how about YOU tell your government to INVEST more in its people!
OH WAIT~~YOU CAN"T SPEAK OUT EITHER!


In the communist political idealogy and socialist structure, THERE IS NO CLASS SEPARATION, NO RICH, NO POOR~~ "EVERYONE IS EQUAL"

Can you HONESTLY tell me~ ALL LAOTIANS ARE EQUAL TODAY?


If you say YES, I highly recommend you take a drive out to the countryside of Laos!

Thanks!

I don't think the western world is so perfect! I also think that guy live in the hut may not wish to have the same life as we have in the West! what we have to go through each day. I have received this poem send to me since 1999 by an unnamed person and I keep it and stick in my office wall to remind me. The world that I have is not that perfect!

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;

Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;

We spend more, but have less;

We buy more, but enjoy it less.

We have bigger houses and smaller families;

More conveniences, but less time;

We have more degrees, but less sense;

More knowledge, but less judgment;

More experts, but more problems;

More medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much,

Smoke too much,

Spend too recklessly,

Laugh too little,

Drive too fast,

Get too angry too quickly,

stay up too late,

get up too tired,

read too seldom,

watch TV too much,

and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom and lie too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life;

we've added years to life, not life to years.

We've been all the way to the moon and back,

but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.

We've conquered outer space, but not inner space;

we've done larger things, but not better things;

we've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul;

we've split the atom, but not our prejudice;

we write more, but learn less;

plan more, but accomplish less.

We've learned to rush, but not to wait;

we have higher incomes; but lower morals;

more food but less appeasement;

We build more computers to hold more information,

to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication;

we've become long on quantity, but short on quality.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion;

tall men, and short character;

steep profits, and shallow relationships.

These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare;

more leisure and less fun;

more kinds of food, but less nutrition.

These are days of two incomes, but more divorce;

More of fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips,

disposable diapers,

throwaway morality,

one-night stands,

overweight bodies,

and pills that do everything from cheer,

to quiet,

to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the show window

and nothing in the stockroom.

Indeed it's all true.


I hope you will stop and think about it. Are we really that happy than people living poor in Laos. Are we???????????

Hi Admin

I agree with you on this point! Most Laos in the Country side is a lot happy than people in the city. They don't have to be stress like us people in the city. Rent or mortgage to be pay each month. Phone bill,electricity and water bill........ Traffic, parking. wearing mask to talk to each other each day. worry about what to wear,what to eat. to many choice making us confuse about what we want in life. We forgot what our root and where did we came from how get to be what we are.....

As I have mention on the other post before this one. It seem to be we have more than them. We have the freedom more than them. but looking deep inside...are we really have all that?  

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Buk Hoo Kee on 1st Feb, 2010 at 12:13am
"doing fine" is a very subjective and open ended phrase.
I could be working in an office and have a house and able to support my family and be "doing fine'.
I could also be living in a mud hut with a rice field and fish pond to live off of and be "doing fine".

I think the real debate is whether people have choices or not. For a laos person living out in the country, I don't think they have many choices but to live off the land to survive. Their kids don't have much of a choice but to go to any school that's available there. Maybe they can move to the city if they wanted but what could they possible do?
In the west, the poor can become rich, and anyone can change their life, there are choices. I got a loan from the gov't to go to University, had no money and no parents, I still was able to go to a school that I wanted and now I'm "doing fine". What do you think happens to orphans in Laos?

For you guys that say Laos is doing fine, why don't you guys go live there then? If it's so fine, why aren't you moving there, what's stopping you all from going aside from the $300k price tag. i think "doing fine" only pertains to the 10% of the population who are the corrupt commies that can afford to drive $100k mercedes but can't afford to build/fix the roads to drive it on.

Maybe you guys are only speaking for yourselves about "doing fine", but these people don't seem to be "doing fine" or have a choice:

The Facts
80% of the Lao population live in rural areas
At least 30% of the Lao population live below the national
poverty line
40% of children under five years of age are underweight
29% of the Lao population live below the minimum level of
dietary energy consumption

According to the UNICEF/Ministry of Labor and
Social Welfare (MoLSW) study conducted in 2004,
of those victims traffi cked into Thailand, 35% were
forced into prostitution, 32% into domestic labor,
17% into factory work, 12% into agricultural work,
and 4% worked on fi shing boats.

You Data is too old to be make any judgment here. 2004. When I was there that wasn't many car and motorbike yet. They isn't must building build and the Highway 13 is not complete yet. The bridge(Loas -Thailand) in Savannakhet is not build yet. Seno, special Zone for business is still in the drawing board, The asean Game didn't not even in drawing board. 2009 is the year Laos finally have show the the world we try to get better like most of the world.  Many thing have change since you las visit mate.

Talking about prostitution is not only Laos problem Every where specially where you are now. you have to stop the people that paying for the service too. In USA is prosecute the people soliciting the prostitute as you aware of that already.  

Each country in this world all have their own problems. you can never stop prostitution as long there is a need It will be always with us...... don't tell me ,every real man will stop having sex and using the 5 fingers to do the job from now on.....

Let stop criticis the government and hope they will see it.  I don't think so... because if they do see it...This site will be block and being ask to shut down already.  The last time,I asking (yesterday)my friend in Laos checking this site is till online.....  but I am sure they is many local Laos is reading about this site now. the way we criticise the govenment they would agree with us but they also will think we are abandoned them and look down on them and thinking they are stupid. I just hope we can pointing to the problem what Laos has and hopefully They Young and future Laos see it and at least finding solution to those problem when they become the future leader.

I am going back to Laos(3 years) to retire and rest in peace. I will start some kind of business in Laos. right now I don't  know what I will do yet.

Well put BHK!

In my CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, though it may sound negative, BUT IT IS THE FACT! It is a REALITY IN LAOS. I'm just telling the TRUTH about how things are! There are NO LIES! Sometimes the truth hurts!

Tee - I do HOPE that Laotian people and the Laotian government see these critiques and realize that WHERE LAOS IS CURRENTLY AT AND WHERE LAOS NEEDS TO, AND COULD BE!

I am NOT putting down the people! Though I live in the USA, and you in Australia, WE want to see our country, our people, live BETTER lives!
And for those that lack the education and intelligence, financial, infrastructures and facilities, IT IS THE GOVERNMENT'S RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE FOR ITS PEOPLE! My criticism is of the LACK OF GOVERNMENT initiatives and programs that will DIRECTLY benefit, enhance and improve the quality of life, in ALL aspects for ALL local people.

Where are the millions $$$ made from the dam projects, from Chinese and foreign "investments?" How about some of that coming back for various projects like roads, schools and education programs for kids, clean running water, local clinics and hospitals in rural areas?

The moral of the story is Laotians need to be afforded CHOICES and OPPORTUNITIES! It is TRUE Laos has made progress since the "change in government" but change and progress is SLOW in COMMUNIST and SOCIALIST structures!

And TEE - No..the west is NOT perfect. But America STRIVES to be FAIR, provide EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, offer CHOICES, to defend freedom and defend those who can't defend themselves..etc...etc...

>>

And speaking of the $300,000 investment the goverment ASKS of expats....Here's ADMIN's response as to why:

"Most Laotians from abroad live in properties that's over $300,000 so I guess that amount isn't alot to ask."

Ahhh, the Logic and Reasoning of an ignoramus and a simpleton! UNBELIEVABLE!

What do you think Buk Hoo Kee? How can you DEBATE with someone who is narrow-minded and DOES NOT SEE THE BIG PICTURE, that does NOT want to see an improvement in quality of life for the greater good?

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Buk Hoo Kee on 2nd Feb, 2010 at 12:59am
I don't want to argue with anyone and I think we have all been good in understanding each other and having a clean and adult like debate. I think all our intentions are good, we just have different views of what we "think" is "good". We all have different standards and I do realize that Laos is still a 3rd world country and their standards may not meet ours in the west. Living comfortably to us in the west means that we can make our own decisions. If we choose to live in the country and do farming and live off the land, we can choose that life. If we want to live in the city and work at a job, we can also choose that life here in the west. I can choose what I want to buy cause I got choices here. It is true that we have to pay for all these choices like having a cell phone along with the bills, having internet/cable along with the bills. Live in an expensive house, have high mortgage payments, live in a cheap place then have a low rent/mortgage payment each month. We can control these things cause we have the choice.

For the people in Laos that are deprived of these choices, they can only accept their fate that is handed to them. If you are born into a poor family that lives in the country, how do you change your fate? You don't even have access to good schools to educate yourself out of poverty, can't go work 2-3 jobs to save up more money cause there are no jobs, you may only have land to grow food to eat day to day and if there is a drought or flood like Ketsana, then what do you do, starve? Got no choice unless the outside world helps you which they have been doing so the Laos gov't just ignores the problem, those UN suckers will do it.

80% live in the country, that means 20% live in the city. So doing fine must only apply to the 20% livng in the city, if even that. When I was there in Laos, there was this family that lived in the house I was staying at and basically they were the live in housekeeprs or "mae bahn" who cooked and cleaned for everyone. They got paid $80 US/mth and that was considered "good". They were from the country and came to the city to find "work" and each month, they would send money home. The mother of this family cooked and cleaned while looking after her kids, the father couldn't find work, just odd jobs. To me, this is not "doing fine", this is "surviving". Lots of the kids can't afford to go to school, that's why I see them running around during the day all the time.

I knew of another guy that had to pond his $300 US car so his wife could get medical treatment at the hospital or she would die. All of the people I know there go to Thailand for anything medical related, and this is in the city, I wonder how bad it must be in the country.

A monk told me something very wise a while ago. He said for someone like me to go live there it would be okay since I have knowledge, english and choices, not to mention some money. For someone that was raised there, they don't have that advantage and thus have no choices but to struggle to make ends meet. We have the tools, they don't. Have you ever tried to do something but realized you don't have the right tools to do it? It's the same thing here, I don't blame them for not having the tools, that choice was never given to them.

On another note, I know of a family of 3 who went back to Laos. They lived in Canada for a few years and decided to go back. They used to rent an apartment and work at labour jobs here in Canada. Now they make $350 US/mth and have a house in Laos and live comfortably cause he has knowledge of road construction that he used to do in Canada, not to mention the english skills necessary to understand the paperwork. Can some average Laos person born there be able to make $350 doing the same thing? Would they be given the same choice/opportunity? I bet not, that's why the chinese have to come in and build the Sea games stadium and other infrastructures. Give the Laos people the choices/opportunity, control their own destiny.

Last of all,

I like you guys comments ( BLBG, BHK )
I also like your poems,Tee.But one thing I disagree with you " Let stop criticize the Govt" My words would had said " F- the Laos Fake-ass Communist" ( Corruptors,one party rules Communist party only)

Let me fix some of your poems:

"we have a big house and smaller families"
Have a big house is better than a little sack hut with huge families
"more knowledge but less judgment"
Have more knowledge is always better than less or lack of knowledge, but less judgment is also better than been judged by the Communist Laws(guity before prove) there are many innocent ppl are been lock up behind bars in Laos without trial.

You have the right and entitled to disagree with my opinions so to all commentors.

After the Second world war. The France give Indochina the independent. what do we do...We kill each other for the power. internal war started every corner of the country, brother kill brother for the hunger of power.(Laos loyal family) I don't want that to happens again! let's learn from the past! at that time we rack of knowledge of what is democracy,rack of law and order,rack of people management,rack of business and trade skill.

You are CORRECT Tee....Education is KEY!

But with an educated society you WILL have people that will demand, PEACEFULLY OR OTHERWISE, civil rights, freedoms of speech, freedom of assembly and demonstrations. They will DEMAND the goverment do more for the people, they will want the government to provide and improve services like health care or unemployment checks, road, electricity, water, schools and educational programs, open doors and opportunities, they will demand the government to STOP and END Chinese and Vietnamese influence, they will speak out agains CORRUPTION....etc, etc,

EDUCATED PEOPLE YES! But LAOS will still be a socialist and communist authoritarian rule! Like you said earlier, those in power don't want to lose that power!

So having said all of that, DO YOU REALLY THINK THE GOVERNMENT WILL LET THE PEOPLE PROTEST AND DEMAND FOR CIVIL RIGHTS and all other services?

Look what happened to China in Tiananmen Square in 1989! It started out as a peaceful studen rally, demonstrations for democracy and civil rights.

Let me ask you again...DO YOU REALLY THINK THE GOVERNMENT WILL LET THE PEOPLE PROTEST AND DEMAND FOR CIVIL RIGHTS and all other services?

Not so easy to answer this one though huh? Sacrifices NEED to be made for the GOOD OF ALL PEOPLE AND FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY!

Do you really think an aggressive, totalitarian, authoritarian communist government, allow this to happen?

I'm NOT saying it CAN'T happen, but it will NOT be easy!

I have faith,  we will get there..Internet has open the door to Laos as you know no one can block the WWW. people in Laos can judge they own faith, when time arrive, we would see that happening. I just hope to see it  in my life time!
I would be going home in 3 years time, I would start something small first just to test the market, but I will never sell out every thing, I have here. My plan B, if anything happened in Laos, I can always come back here again. I am not afraid to lose,but more afraid not to try. I got one American Dollars when I got here. If I going to lose some of my wealth, that is not going to kill me. I have give my children the best education I can afford...I am not going to worry about their future. they probably will make more money that me anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!

Quote:

Actually you are INCORRECT in this statement. The Laos government with the help of Chinese/Vietnamese governments can BLOCK, FILTER or CENSOR, and MONITOR ANY information they want on internet CONTENT that they find, "inappropriate" "defaming" or "threat to the state or party" etc...

Let me restate - The Laos government DOES BLOCK or FILTER websites!

Sites like pro-democracy movements, or sites attacking the government...are on the top of the list.

Here's an article:

http://www.nationmultimedia.com/2010/01/25/opinion/opinion_30121062.php

Recently GOOGLE, threatened to pull out of China for its censorships or contents found on GOOGLE. WWW or the internet means FREE ACCESS to FREE information from all over the world! Putting censorships or "filters" ATTACKS that FREEDOM!

They can block ANY content, just like I can block PORN from my 8 year old son, who also uses the internet for learning.

Think about it, why do you think ADMIN NEVER says anything NEGATIVE about the government or the current state of the people? She is monitored and she knows it! So she can't say anything DEROGATORY!

I don't think they said we are trash,but saying "Laos is lazy" It's our culture making us this way. most of Laos doesn't need to go very far to find food. any Creek have Fish and land have Bamboo. so it's making us not to worry about food. Most Laos have a habit having a nap in the afternoon. Our culture is making us a Nation of no worry. and Lazy according with other nation. because of our culture!

Chinese and Vietnamese have been doing business since The French in control of Indochina. I don't think you can stop that.....and they will always will be in control of the economic of the country.  Specially Chinese, They will always dominate the Business of Asian Country. Thailand 4 big Bank is in the hand of Chinese. Although they no longer using Chinese Name. Malaysia,Singapore,Indonesia,Philippine all the economic are control by Chinese. if they gone all country will going to melt down.  They are just like the Jew control all the economic of the western world.

It's rather complicated, try to simplify it,most of them have these problems:
1. Poor and need large sum of money (their standard)
2. Heavily in debt (her or family)
3. Unskill, naive,young and of course good looking (who wants an ugly hooker)
After a while in the game, they became used to it and most of them DON'T want to do anything else... after all it's quite easy to make money, sad thing is as they becomes older so, their prices drops, the lucky one becomes Mami, the majority...sad...and try to sell their daughter to pay for the debts...here we go again.

Solution...wise men try to fix this prolem since adam was wearing nappies, for me... the only way is either sew the pussy up or cut the funny bit off.

And for those think that proverty is the main cause, may be, but don't tell me there is no hooker in Swiss which is the richest country in the world.

For those thinking that they are the world's savior, poor guy, you've been conned like those poor north Koreans, 90% of the world's problem is caused by your master.

What about the Laotian low-life gangsters or wannabe blacks in America? You are no better then the people you stereotype.  

As regard to casino and whore houses, it's everywhere around the world.  What can you do to stop this? You really can't.  It's up to the people in villages or cities to protest this.  If our people stoop this low to allow this I will have to agree with you there.  Laos has a population of a little over 5-6 million.  I don't know how much impact this will have on the country as a whole.   I guess time will tell.

I think is an example of culture accepting it is ok to do this.

Badlikeme, Technically, prostitution is illegal in Laos but sometimes there's insufficient proof that one is prostituting.

Selling drugs and stealing is also an easy way to earn money but it's a very serious charge and you can be proven guilty in a court of law. Prostitution is a lesser crime.

you are kidding right? there are numerous ways law enforcement can enforce and crack down on illegal prostitution. I suppose law authority needs more training? Honestly speaking, I for myself entered a dance/entertainment club that it was considered by the way. And many poo sao came out of no where and wanted to entertained me by solicitating their service.

You can do all the training you like, but when it comes down to the nitty gritty it's scary to think of how much corruption there actually is.

The wealthy pimps pay the authorities to stay away from their business and their girls. When you have money, you're above the law.

Of course corruption is a major part of the issue to get rid of prostitution and many other crimes alike. It takes overhauling change from the top official down.  This is why the country will never prevail and stay in the same state as they are in now with no improvement. The country needs leader who are willing to stamp out corruption.

Post by Lao Pride Administrator on 2nd Jul, 2010 at 12:21pm
There is prostitution in every country, and there will always be prostitution in Laos regardless of who is the top official.

Just because you and I don't approve prostitution, many ladies out there still enjoy the job and many men enjoy the company of a lady. Why should we remove something that we don't like, but others like?

I have no sympathy for prostitutes, but at the end of the day their career choice doesn't affect the way I live my life.

Only if you could desex the population.
Too big of a step ? may be Mr Independant should do something about this rather than just critisise, I have a few suggestion:
1. Try to send $ to help.
2. Try to lobby western gov not to crack down on the pronography industry.
3. Join politics rather than talking alone, once you got elected you can really do somethin.
3. Take it easy, after all it's willing buy willing sell, we live in a capitalist, free and democratic society, everyone can do whatever they want as long as it cause no harm to others, so mind your own business.
4. Start a revolution, who knows, may be you'll be more famous than Lenin and Che combined.
5. Too hard basket, people try to solve it since Adam's grandpa, maybe God will take care of it oneday.

Oh! one more thing, the government knows prostitution is the quickiest way to improve the country's economy, of couse they can not openly support it, look at history:
Back at confussos time in China, the government runs brothols to boost the state's coffer.
Taiwan's official prostitution close their door just a few years ago.
In late 90's China crack down on prostitution in Shenzhen, most of the prostitute went back to their village, the result is massive withdrawal of funds from the bank, creata a localised recession, the government soon reverse the policy.
Prostitution is an intergral part of economy whether we like it or not, more so in modern days, it carried on from thousands of years, imagine Thailand without prosititution, how can their economy survive (I mean at present form of economy structure).

USA Joe, It's a Lao movie based on a true story. It was televised in Laos to put some fright into young Lao ladies, and warn them about the dangers of being tricked into entering Thailand to work. However the work is sometimes not what one expect, instead one can end up being sold into prostitution.

Prostitution in Laos is different in that no one is locked up and being forced to do anything they don't want to do. In Thailand, however, prostitution is a dangerous game that is affiliated with mafia and gangs.

Prostitution is illegal in Laos, but not enforced sufficiently.

The law in Laos tends to favour Lao citizens, so the punishment is usually just a slap on the hand. If you were a foreigner prostituting in Laos, there will be a more severe punishment in terms of jail time and heavy fines. That's why there's a mixture of Thais and foreigners prostituting in Thailand, since everyone is free to prostitute.

The Law in Laos is more favor to Vietnamese[Fact] not to the Lao ppl.

True story : The poor Lao famers are living near by K52, She's old lady [widow] living with her daughter. All they having just a little hut and rice field paddy with two water buffaloes, have no running water in the house. Last year, one of their buffalo got stolen. They find out the thieves are the Vietnamese Personnel are living near by. After the investigated they offering her the money 1,500,000 Kip = $ 180 US.
Without the buffaloes to work in the field, Old /woman. Imagin what life does she has? and the thieves gone free without punishment at all, only $180 to given to the lady. Is that all the Laos' Law can do to the Vietnamese? What the sorry........


I was in Laos for 14 days I had seen it all. There have more Ho-Houses than the Factories in Laos, every goddam corners in Vientiane. I myself don't ever believed Laos had changed too much...

Time changed People changed.....so to the gov't [Face$$$$]

The thief would have most likely sold it. At least the woman got compensated in the form of money, and she can buy another buffalo. The cheapest buffalo cost around $180 US in the countryside, so she should be fine unless she used the money for something else.

I agree that there's alot of "ho houses" in Vientiane, but if you're not into those things, you don't really notice it. It's like if you're a very religious person, everywhere you go there seems to be temples because you're always on the lookout for them.

Not all Lao people in Issan are second class citizens. They are more than welcome to immigrate to Laos if they are unhappy about their living conditions in Thailand. But they love Thailand more than Laos, they don't want anything to do with Laos.

They should hire more Lao to work in the hotel. If they not. Government should require them too.

Some Lao Issan do move to Laos. Most like Thai more because there're more jobs and opportunity in Thailand. When Laos become wealthy and develop. They'll like Laos more and more will move to Laos. Humane nature people want better life for their family. That's why million around the world want to come to the US. I think US is more Communist then Laos. They take good care of poor people and peasant. Government has money and they help poor with education, food, Medicare and housing. The less you make the cheaper you pay. You make more you pay everything regular prices.

Prostitution can lead to all sorts of crimes such as rape, forced prostitution, underage sex, murders and drugs. The US doesn't want to see any of those things happening in their country.

Women are free to do anything they want with their bodies in their own homes, but just don't sell it in clubs and streets. That's probably their message.

I think you are incorrect - America has real problems.  They may solve them but they are there.  For example, figures were released just today that show 1% of the population control 50% of the wealth and income of the country.  The top 2% control 75% of the wealth and income of the people.  Thats the highest disproportionate of wealth ever, even higher than 1928 before the Great Depression!  This has been made possible by 40 years of Republican rule (just like the before the Great Depression) with high taxes and cutting services to general public while slashing taxes of the very rich.  This cannot continue - if it does US will just be another "banana republic"...   And new figures released today show 35% of blacks now live below the poverty line.  Thats more than a 1/3 of a significant minority in the country.

What does this have to do with Laos? I'm just making a comparison. We also have debts and are no better off. Many people around the world still want to go to live and work in America regardless of their economic situation. You're lucky you're there now.

As far as the drop in the US dollar is concerned, it can be a good or bad thing depending on people's circumstances or the type of business they are involved in. For instance, it's bad for American holidaymakers to Laos, because they will get less kip notes in exchange for their dollar. It's good for local people in Laos because they get more dollar in exchange for their kip.

The race of a kid depends who their mum and dad is. If one of their parents is an American then I would consider the kid a Lao-American. If their parents are both Lao then they are a Lao person.

I live in Thailand.  Any "prostitution" that I have seen in Thailand is not with beautiful young women like these photos, and it's rare to see prostitutes these days.

I do not live in Pattaya, BKK, or Phuket.

Regarding the money issue.  I have a decent income. I live in a very beautiful home.  I had a Lisu wife.  The Lisu have a lot of money.  If you are not continually throwing money at the Lisu, they will get her to leave you.  My  wife's mother is on my side.  It's not always "the family."  It's the social climate of their village.

The lying culture doesn't allow you to get to the truth so that you can deal with anything, because even if you can find the truth, the denial does not allow a conversation to take place.

I don't know about Laos, I hope to go to Laos for the first time in a week or so.  I think I will just go to Vientienne.  I am looking for advice on where to go, where to stay, what to see, who to contact, who not to contact. I am looking for advice and guidance. Any feed back will be appreciated.

The language barrier is probably the reason why you can't get to the truth in the conversation.

1. My wife left me. I love her very much.  Divorce never makes anybody "set."  Marrying for "more money" never makes any body set.  People should be selling their love, love is free, not purchased and not rented.

2. Maybe some other guy offered her more money.  Or maybe she thinks she will get more money.  Maybe she will get more ice cream,  then get fat and hide in a closet, but she will get "more."  No man or woman can ever be appeased, not me, not you, not her, not him.  Try to be appeased or appease another. You will notice  a 100% failure rate.

3.  America has nothing to do with Laos.  Wrong.  Once China announces it is no longer supporting America's debt ... within 15 days, the world will go into a depression that is unparalleled.

4.  People need a mate that will be theirs regardless of circumstances, wealth, or fortunes coming or going.  Love is not what you can take but what you can give.

5.  I am very lonely right now.  I would like to meet a really beautiful woman to LOVE ME, but not one to "sex me."  I am not interested in sex, I am interested in love.  Love is giving, love is not taking.  Divorce is just wrong, it affects thousands and thousands of people, just two people have networks that are amazingly large, and which become alarmingly noticeable when divorce and separation enters.  Mental problems come mostly from divorce

Quote: I don't think that America has real problems. There's a mixture of problems and wonderful things in every country including Laos.

I think you are incorrect - America has real problems. They may solve them but they are there. For example, figures were released just today that show 1% of the population control 50% of the wealth and income of the country. The top 2% control 75% of the wealth and income of the people. Thats the highest disproportionate of wealth ever, even higher than 1928 before the Great Depression! This has been made possible by 40 years of Republican rule (just like the before the Great Depression) with high taxes and cutting services to general public while slashing taxes of the very rich. This cannot continue - if it does US will just be another "banana republic"... And new figures released today show 35% of blacks now live below the poverty line. Thats more than a 1/3 of a significant minority in the country. No country with such a large underclass of its citizens living below the poverty level "has no real problems" especially in a country like the US with little or no safety net for its less well off citizens.

Giving money to prostitutes is not going to help them, not for long term for sure, unless you can afford to give them enough to provide for their family for the rest of their lives. After all, can you afford to give them enough to take them off prostitution?

I think education is the foundation which then leads to professionalism of which provides foods and shelters. When you have all this in place, prostitution won't be an option for any soul.

No one is living in extreme poverty. I'm sure that their families live in a house and not under a bridge.

I agree that there are jobs out there, but it is a question of if the wages are enough for a living. Most unskilled jobs such as housekeeper, child minder in Vientiane for example earn up to Kip 500,000 per month, factory workers and labourers earn up to Kip 900,000 per month for 6 days work per week 10-12 hours per day. Not enough money for anyone, not to mention a single mum with old/retired parents to look after. Most Lao retired people do not have pension so they depend on their children to provide foods, medications, shelters and bills, and all the shits we all need for everyday living you name it. This money does not get you far at all.

It may be true that most people in Laos earns lightly more than 1 dollar a day but what about the minority who don't? What about those living in rural areas with no jobs, who can't read, can't write because there's no school to go to to start with? Do you really think that there is even a toilet cleaning job for them?

I don't think most prostitutes enjoy what they do, whilst some of them may. I can't imagine being forced by a pim to have sex with someone is an enjoyment despite all free drinks and tips.

With prostitution, it is very easy to earn quick "cash in hand" every day. They also get free tips and drinks from customers and free accommodation and meals supplied by the pimps who look after them. And not to the mention the enjoyment of socialising every night. They enjoy it, they don't need to support their families. Their parents are old enough to support themselves and it's their responsibility to support their children. If they can't do that then they are not good parents.

Most people in Laos earn more than US$1 a day.

I'm a city person and can get by, but I have friends and relatives in the countryside who are poor and they don't turn to prostitution. There's no toilet cleaning jobs for them out there, but there are other choices for them to earn a living. Some friends come to the city to work as a cleaner, welder and security guard.

No girl in Laos is locked up as a slave and being forced by a pimp to have sex. They can call it quits and return back home if they didn't like what they're doing, but they want to stay. Prostitution is not their dream job, but it's the job they would rather do than the choices of jobs available.

Some wealthy girls also become full-time prostitutes in Laos, because that's the sort of environment they enjoy.

Money is not the issue here. It all starts with how they were raised by their parents, and also how the parents themselves were raised up.

Regardless of how poor their family appears, there are girls who will not even think of becoming a prostitute, due to the way they were brought up.

Poverty lead to crimes and prostitution. Most do it because of money. Most rich, educated or successful people will not work in sex trade . Most poor people do because they don't have much choices, look at Thailand for example most sex worker are from Issan. Monthly income in Issan is about $200, but in Bangkok about $700. People has to eat and feed their family. It's human nature people will do whatever to survive.

In America yearly income is $47,000 a year, but we still have some prostitution. Its all depend on the person situation. People work in sex trade for many reason. Many are victims of human trafficking. There's no justification wrong is wrong you can't just go robbed the bank and think its ok because you want too.

Like I said, poor people will never think of becoming prostitutes if they were raised in a family environment with high standards. Poor people also have high standards.

Even if they don't have enough employment choices, it's pretty low in anyone's language to choose to sell their body.

People have food to eat in Laos, their needs are already met, even if means going fishing for food and growing their own vegies. The main reason they become prostitutes is because their wants are not fulfilled. They want mobile phones, motorbikes, TV, etc.

Many in Laos live $1 a day. Even $100 a month is not enough for food, gas, car insurance, pay rent. After that you won't have much to spend. The more people make the more they'll spend. Which is good for economy. If people make less they'll spend less.

According to business for Millenium development.

2 million or 30.7% Lao live beneath poverty line.
1.8 million or 27% live on less then $1 a day.
4.8 million or 74% live on less then $2 a day.
Only 63% of Lao children reach grade 5.

Good thing Lao government don't have democracy and election. People will votes all of them out of offices. This is what Pathet Lao fought so hard for, just to bring poverty and communism to Laos.

LP Admin, seems like you have had bad experience with prostitutes. Perhaps you are surrounded with too many of them in the city where you live that nothing or no one could convince you that for some unfortunate women prostitution is not about choices.

I absolutely disgust those who turned prostitutes by choice and for those you can look down and condemn as much as you like. However though do spare some thoughts and sympathy for those who do not have any choices that you and I have. After all Lao people are known for being kind and friendly....

There's always a choice, some people have more and some people have less of it than others, but there's options out there.

Prostitution is illegal in Laos anyway, so they're not even supposed to be prostituting.

I sympathise those who legitimately look for work, but get tricked into another country to work as a slave in the sex industry.

However, in Laos, no one is being tricked, it's a choice to be a prostitute.

Well said, Admin! If you raise children in a home with high moral standards, no matter how poor that home may be financially, the children are more inclined to reject those things, drugs, prostitution, crime, alternate-lifestyles, etc.

A child's mind can be shaped and molded like clay, but you can not be a hypocrite in any issues you try to impress upon them. If they see you do that on one issue they will reject your teaching on all other issues.

Being poor isn't an excuse to make poor choices in life. Greedy people always fall, sooner or later.

Last year I went to Thailand and Laos. I had seen it all.........
I been there during the red-shirt protested in Bankcock and I was there to melt with my ppl while Seh Deang got killed by sniper. Woo what's mess......If you have a Lao-Blood in you"Issaan" living in Thailand. Thai-Bankcock look at you like the bunch of trash. They will shoot at you or kill you like an animal.

2 weeks in Viengchaa. I be damn every corners in Vientiane are fill with the Ho-houses. They even have the Gay Bar in Laos call: " SORLADIT ".

The old cinema at Sisangvong turned to be a Night Club. I would rather call the Drug-house. And Five Star Hotel at DonChan were fill with the Crack-heads and smell like piss in there.....

I thought Laos would be better than that; like most of the Lao ppl are living in Laos had said.

Rich get richer and poor get poorer.....Govt corrupted ppl will be poor and broke.

I notice as well too in many films and concerts from Thailand, they always promote this gay(lady-boy) crap.  The US is getting out of control as well.  I'd say at least 5/10 films will have gay characters or some sort of gay reference in it, even in children movies.  It is really sickening.

I am not homophobic.  I have friends and people I know that are gay.  I just don't like it to be exploited in a films generally, because it always have  sexual references/twist.  If you have nieces and nephews would you pay to go watch a G-rated film promoting this garbage?  There's no need for it.

They say it's easier to make a living by being gay or a ladyboy in Thailand.

The Thais like to use them as humour on TV, even their music videos have gay references. Personally, I don't mind it, and it's funny for most viewers in this part of the world, maybe because we are used to seeing these kinds of things.

Maybe it's just me, but the humor is too repetitive it gets old fast. If you don't mind me asking does the rating go up or down with these characters in the films or music videos since it is accepted in Thailand or Laos?

How do you distinguish the 'innocent' from the promiscuous?

When I say to a potential sohpeni/mae jang/pusao har ngeun/galee: 'Lets go. Lets go. To the hotel. Lets go.'.
How do I prevent myself from mistaken identity and walking into a slap?

What are the tells?

How do I know who's working as a prostitute and who's not?      

CAN YOU ANSWER NOW, SEAW? :D

Post by Lao Pride Administrator on 15th Apr, 2011 at 8:02pm
Well, if she is prepared to go to your hotel room then that's a pretty good sign that she's a prostitute.

Also if money is involved in dealings with her, then it's an obvious sign too.

I'm gonna ask this one last question concerning your 'sisters', just so you DO understand the intended enquiry:

When I go to 'auctions' in Laos - they are everywhere, aren't they? - how do I know which 'items' are for sale and which are only for display?  

That's what I REALLY wanted to know. Just from observing alone. No contact made yet. What are the giveaways? Now I'm gonna reiterate what I said earlier as well and why it's hard for ME to make the distinction: These days even the offsprings of influental men who supposedly sire 'innocent' girls, don pieces of cloth that are small - but large enough - to only shield their buttocks, nipples and areolas.

They all dress alike nowadays. I'm sure you've noticed nang.

How does one make the educated guess as to who's promiscuos and who's naive?



Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Lao Pride Administrator on 16th Apr, 2011 at 2:00am
What "auctions" are you talking about? You're not being specific.

You're right that girls dress alike, so it comes down to your "observation". If she's always dressing in sexy outfits then she's most likely a prostitute.

You also have to observe what she is often doing during the night, this in particular tells the whole story. Does she usually stay at home, or is she always seen hanging around clubs and guesthouses, things like that.

So seeing a girl for the first time can be hard to guess sometimes. You need to see what she is doing, and how she is dressed each day. An innocent girl wouldn't dress sexy every day for example.

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Old Man on 16th Apr, 2011 at 4:02am
A lot of it is down to WHERE you are making contact with the girls.  The places where you can hook up with the girls you are talking about are well known. (Don't ask me where they are - I'm Old Man, remember.... ;))

Also, the biggest sign is that those girls in those places would approach you and most likely invite you to buy them a drink, not the other way around.  Something a regular Lao girl would never do.

That's true. Be upfront and ask her if she is a prostitute.
     
You don't care if she is offended, because your intentions is to look for someone for a one night stand, and not a girlfriend, from what I'm reading.

If you want to have someone as a girlfriend, then you have to follow up with what she's doing, as I've mentioned.

Many Lao girls outside of bars and nightclubs can also be prostitutes, so you always need to be alert.

There are two types of prostitutes in Laos. The full-time prostitutes are found in bars and clubs every night to earn a living for themselves and their families.

And there are those who do it casually, like students whenever they need money for a new mobile/cell phone or something.

I think I'll end up as the recipient of a slap (didn't I already mention this?).

I do care how people feel. I may be a horny Lao boy, but I am human.

If I WAS looking for a fan I wouldn't be looking to recruit a 'girlfriend' from the discussed venues! I would be greedy like the next guy and wouldn't want to share my meet around. Right?

I like that word 'alert'. Sounds like aiding and abetting a sex tourist. ;D

Where are the hotspots to pickup a 'casual' freelance prostitue? That would be better, I think. I could teach them a few things. I like playing that role. The girls that are being pimped are too savvy when when it comes to bedroom gymnastics. Some already start assuming positions as soon as the door is closed. Then there are the REAL brazen girls who start to dictate how THEY would like love to be made to them. If I'M paying then I'M starting off on top. That's non negotiable. >:(

Here's an off the head enquiry nang:

You say that you, too, have been a victim of mistaken identity. Some chinese guy made sexual advances towards you right? How did you feel after such an awakening?

Why don't you give me a rundown of the dialogue exchanged between you and that randy Chinaman?

THANKS FOR ALL THE TIPS AND POINTERS YOU HAVE SUPPLIED NANG. YOU REALLY DO CARE. :D

If you are worried about getting slapped or physically hurt, then ask her the question from a distance.

I don't know any hotspots for freelance prostitutes. You probably need someone to guide you there, jumbo/tuk tuk drivers know best.

I didn't say that a Chinese guy made sexual advances towards me. He was interested in a date, but I refused.

Prostitutes in Laos are not immune to AIDS either. If you are dealing with working girls in any country, then you're always at risk of any disease because you don't know them and their medical history.

Your lines are fine. You can ask them anything you like, young man. You're not planning to make friends with them, you're obviously planning to sleep with them, so be as direct as you like.

I could do with more female companions like you! You are very mature for your age! I like your swag!!! :D

Believe it or not, but this is how my kin really conversates. We are very brazen where women are concerned. Pay ga yay pen bao pen sao mot la. We are all adults now and are treated accordingly. All the lude things that I have divulged to you, we actually discuss out in the open. The males, anyway. No bs. Some even refer 'prosties' to other kin like you would a good car salesman. This might sound a bit like incest, but it's not really, is it? I KNOW this type of behavour is prevalent among alot of Lao, not that most would own up to it though.

Yes, you can assume that a high percentage of the girls in bars are prostitutes.

But nightclubs like Future and Don Chan Palace are a total different thing, and not every girl can be assumed a prostitute. "Normal" Lao girls go there for entertainment as well.

If you are lucky, you might meet a girlfriend in a club because some people go to let their hair down to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions, but beer bars are the homes of prostitutes.

Whether or not she is a prostitute, she paid back your generosity.

There's no point asking whether or not a girl is a prostitute because you'll never get a straight answer. Even if a girl is a prostitute, it's a personal thing and she probably feels ashamed and embarrassed to be honest about it.

Instead of posing a direct question that could offend her, it's better to ask her a casual question.

Example:

"Do you know any good bar to have drinks?"
If she's very knowledgeable about bars then she's a prostitute.

"I'm staying alone in Laos, do you want to come and visit me?"
If she begins talking about fees then she's a prostitute.

Compliment her. "You look beautiful".
If she replies with Thank You, followed by honey, darling or sweetheart then she's a prostitute.

That's okay, it's obvious without an answer anyway.

Even if I am a police, there's nothing I can do because you're in Thailand. And if you're in Laos, there's not enough evidence for an arrest because you weren't found with a girl.

Here's something that has been circulating in my mind recently that I think NEEDS to be answered:

How do I know when I'm being extorted?

Is the cop coughing into his fist? Is he rubbing his thumb across the tip of his fingers? Will he just come out and demand the money or what?
How will I know?

Hve you ever been extorted?

Post by Lao Pride Administrator on 27th Apr, 2011 at 1:33am
The police on the streets won't demand any money from you. They expect you to know yourself.

If they are going to arrest you for your wrongdoing, then just offer them some money for a coffee and they'll let you off the hook, but it depends on the seriousness of your offense.

I usually don't give the police any money because I know how to sweet talk them. If that doesn't work then I will pay them. If that doesn't work then it won't be problem for me because my connections knows some high ranking people to come to my rescue with any problems that I may be involved in, but I hope it never comes down to that.

Well, I've never been under the pump before, so I wouldn't know how to act. I was hoping you'd help me out on that.  I don't enquire just to annoy you, mate. ;) You should know by now that I'm one of the more vulnerable. My late night escapades are bound to get me into some heat. It's innevitable.

Can you give me some dialogue? I was thinking of: 'See aow bo ngeun?'. 'Aow, aow'. When I say that last line, ('Aow, aow') I'm literally shoving the ca$h into his breast pocket. Can I do that? Or do I need to actually offer to pay for his 'coffee', and make it sound more indirect and pleasant?

I knew it! I knew it! Your kin have influence, right? Political influence too?

If you don't want to find yourself in a vulnerable position, then please do everything within the law while you are in Laos.

A cup of coffee in Laos is less than $1 US, but that's not enough to get you off the hook. "Here's some money for a cup of coffee" is just a polite saying.

I don't know anyone with a political influence, but they have some power over the police.

You really ARE literal minded. How much in US currency will I have to peel back to get me out handcuffs? And if I play the fool and don't offer any 'coffee money? What happens to me then?

There's no right amount. It depends whether they are happy with the amount you are offering them.

If you don't offer any coffee money, then they'll carry out the normal procedure and arrest you.

How am I supposed to know how much is enough? He won't come out and tell me, will he? How much will it knock me back if I get caught with my pants down while in the company of a sohpeni?

Does that mean a night in a comfortable Lao jail?

"What legitimate emergencies?". Is that a joke? Should I laugh? Or are you REALLY confused? You are really starting to become an Enigma seaw. ;D

ARE there such things in Laos as 'legitimate emergencies?'. What if some guy gets mugged? Is the cop going to demand to get 'paid' before he actually does his job? ;D I have a feeling the cop will be in favour - all day, every day - of the double-whammy, right? ;D

I already told you that you know if it is enough if they are happy with it. If they're not happy with it, then offer them a bit more.

They don't always accept your money. It depends on the seriousness of your offense. For example, the truck driver who killed my cousin in a road accident is currently serving time in jail because it's a major offense.

Another reason why some girls cross the river to work as a prostitute is to prevent people close to them (family, friends, relatives) from knowing about it.


BS!!!

There are no secrets in Laos! Gossip is Laos' de facto national sport for many reasons! The 'truth' being one of them.

How are prostitutes viewed by the Lao community - in Laos? Isn't there a stigma attached to prostitutes? Or are they jusy accepted for who they are like ladyboys? :-?

Exactly, that's all they can resort to, "gossip". If their connections in Laos can't see them prostituting, they won't know the truth. That's why they go to Thailand.

Prostitutes are despised by many people in Laos. Those who accept them for who they are, are mainly the playboys.

The majority of Lao people don't just 'report on news' improvised out of thin air. Most of the gossip is either true (although WITH exagerations) or are educated guesses. Like someone from a meeker family crossing the River, for instance. Although they will use the euphemism: bay har ngeuan. We all have the notion they're really going to bay kiy doh.

Yep, you got that right, baby! ;)

We need the sexual releif; they need the money. It's a win-win situation for everybody involved. The dispisers-slash-envious-slash-'news reporters' are only those that miss out (and with nothing else better to do with their free time than speak of other peoples affairs ;D.)

Prostitutes should be accepted by now. They've been around for many centuries and will continue to linger for even longer, or until that 2012 prediction wipes us all out.

By the way, buddy, how do YOU feel about prosties? :-?

Many of the 3 million sex worker in Thailand are from Isan. They're Lao. Isan is the poorest and least developed region in Thailand. They kept them poor for a reason. Nobody will work as prostituted if they have good jobs and education.

How would I know? ;D ;D ;D Maybe their food ran out. Maybe they're sick of dipping their rice balls into salt for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It's hard for you to imagine - from their vantage points - what life is like for those born into unfavourable circumstances. You're still in possesion of your 'mint' BMW, right?

Whenever I take a girl back to the hotels (why won't they consent to going back to my village?) and snake my way up into their gland(s), after my King Cobra 'spits' it's venom, of course - during the 'interval', I like to call it - I DO ask them why they get into the worlds oldest profession. Not once has a prostitute implied - you know how they like to beat around the bush - that she actually likes the 'job'. I also inferred - from their mannerisms - that they'd rather be somewhere else. However, they DO put on a good performance. ;)

They don't look malnourished or anorexic, so it's safe to say that they've been eating more than just rice balls with salt.
 
I have a mixture of rich and poor relatives in Laos so I understand different situations. The poor female relatives of mine live in rural areas, and as poor as they seem, none of them are sitting in the bars and clubs.

Family upbringing plays an important part in people's lives. We've all heard the old saying: "like mother, like daughter". Meaning the personality and behaviours of the mother are similar to her daughter.

If you're from the bottom tiers of Lao society, forget the hospital, go to the village temple. Donating a banana into the monk's begging bowl should be admission enough. A few splashes of 'holy water', the tying of colured cord around your wrists is essential. To REALLY exorcise the flu/cold plead for the monk to recite a mantra on your behalf. Depending on how strong your faith is, that SHOULD cure you. However, for the less devout, prostituion may be the only way to keep the health of theirs and their loved ones in check. :-?

It was near Greenville Avenue which is a major area to hang out at night...problem is it's near a shady part of town, so once you're a block away from the bars you have a much higher chance of being robbed. It's like that in a lot of big cities though.

Don't get me started on Oakland....

I think it's one of those situation where you just happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time scenario.  It happens to everyone, it doesn't matter where you are or where you live.  There's always bad people.  You can live in the most richest and beautiful neighborhood in the world, and things like this will still occur.  Also, when, bad things happen to us we tend to think the worse of the entire city...that is wrong too.  I had issues with pick pockets in Pattaya,Thailand. I dealt with it...but, I don't think the entire city is bad.  So, I'm just saying. :)

I've lived in Dallas the past 3 years. If you really feel that Bangkok is safer than Dallas then you must have really been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Considering how popular the Greenville area is, its not surprising that there will be a few criminals there to exploit it. And actually, Greenville is closer to Highland Park, where some of the richest folks in Dallas reside. I've personally never encountered any crime first hand in Dallas.

There's tons of it around the Greenville area, and the area just north eastish of downtown. I lived in Uptown, and just crossing the expressway the neighborhood changed dramatically. My friend lives not too far away from Greenville Avenue, and he puts up with crazy crack heads going through his garbage, and tweakers yelling, screaming, and fighting at all hours of the night...and his neighborhood is considered somewhat nice.

Are you Lao? Otherwise it's a crazy coincidence that there's two foreigners from Dallas on here.

Most Laotian Americans (includes colonies of the Hmong from Laos) live in the states of California. Followed by Minnesota, Texas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Washington, Kansas, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Virginia, New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Oregon. There are also large and sizable communities in Ohio, Oklahoma, Iowa, Utah, Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Delaware, North Carolina, Georgia, New Hampshire, Michigan, Maine, Alabama and Louisiana. There are about over 200,000 ethnic Lao in America. 8,000 - 11,000 more Americans are mixed with another ethnic group and Lao. Ethnic Lao would be considered both Lao American and Laotian American (see also Hmong American).
Cities or regions with significant Laotian Americans include the San Francisco Bay area (numbering at about 11,545), the Sacramento Metropolitan Area (9,814), the Seattle metropolitan area (12,190), Minneapolis - Saint Paul (18,031), the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area (10,500), San Diego (7,002), Fresno, California (6,381), Providence, Rhode Island (6,291), Elgin, Illinois (4,000),[4] and the Greater Los Angeles Area (est. at 5,000-8,000) with the rest of Southern California have many Laotians and other Southeast Asian communities.

You have to remember in the early 80s there weren't many Asians living in the cold, as time goes by the family grew bigger and bigger. Just my opinion, in the cold weather, it's easier to keep yourself warm then it is versus hot weather states trying to get that AC working. LOL

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Lan Xang on 26th Jun, 2011 at 11:46pm
They have many industry in MN, but they known for medical industry. What about Texas?

Industry and commerce

Minnesota's earliest industries were fur trading and agriculture; the city of Minneapolis grew around the flour mills powered by St. Anthony Falls. Although less than 1% of the population is employed in the agricultural sector,[60] it remains a major part of the state's economy, ranking 6th in the nation in the value of products sold.[61] The state is the U.S.'s largest producer of sugar beets, sweet corn, and green peas for processing, and farm-raised turkeys.[62] Forestry remains strong, including logging, pulpwood processing and paper production, and forest products manufacturing. Minnesota was famous for its soft-ore mines, which produced a significant portion of the world's iron ore for over a century. Although the high-grade ore is now depleted, taconite mining continues, using processes developed locally to save the industry. In 2004, the state produced 75% of the country's usable iron ore.[62] The mining boom created the port of Duluth which continues to be important for shipping ore, coal, and agricultural products. The manufacturing sector now includes technology and biomedical firms in addition to the older food processors and heavy industry. The nation's first indoor shopping mall was Edina's Southdale Center and its largest is Bloomington's Mall of America.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota#Industry_and_commerce

Houston, the state's largest urban economic enclave stands at the center of the petrochemical, biomedical research trades, shipping, and aerospace (particularly NASA).

Dallas/Fort Worth houses the state's predominant defense manufacturing interests and the expansive information technology labor market.

West Texas and the panhandle is dominated by ranching and the petroleum industry.

Timber industry is important in East Texas.

Texas has a relatively lower unemployment rate in the country and probably comparable to Miinesota.  In 2010, Texas was the best performing state  creating and sustaining jobs and economic growth because due to low federal government control on industries.  Very true cost of living in Texas is relatively lower than that in Minnesota.  How much is median home price up there? In the Houston metro homes go for ~$130K.

Exclusive picture inside a nightclub in Laos. It's pretty dark inside but as you can see, there are no guys sitting in this section of the table because it is reserved for girls only, or escorts to be blunt.

According to the information from my playboy colleague, if a male customer is interested in any of the girls, whether he wants one to accompany him for a drink in the club or to take her elsewhere for pleasure, he has to pay the pimp who is usually somewhere nearby.

Blue-collar boys and rednecks
And we got lovers, lots of lookers

I don't hate prostitutes at all but admin speaks the truth about prostitution being completely optional and there is plenty of other work available, prostitution is just faster for cash. When properly checked and regulated prostitution is great and it should totally be legal. I don't want to find a girlfriend every time I need to relieve my urges.

99% of prostitutes in Vientiane comes from rural Laos, so the presumption that good Lao girls all come from the countryside isn't always true.

You will rarely see a city girl prostituting because they have family watching over them or they have legitimate ways to earn money.

I could say many things to this but I'll just make it short.

If you think most city girls are good and most country girls are bad then you are just as wrong as someone saying all country girls are good and all city girls are bad.

In the end, it just depends on the individual.

In most of the cities in Laos, you will only find Lao people, except for Luang Prabang where there are Khmu and Hmong people in the cities. There are 100+ ethnic groups in Laos, most of which you will never ever see if you only stick to the cities. Some of the tribes have zero presence in any city, and they do not sell sex either.

I'm reluctant to admit it, but I have good knowledge of prostitutes around Laos. Almost all of the prostitutes in Southern Laos that I talked to said they came from Vientiane and Luang Prabang. About 70% of them were ethnic Lao and the rest were either from Vietnam or they were Khmu. I noticed a lot of Khmu and Hmong girls selling sex but I never found a prostitute from other tribes. Speaking as someone who knows a bit about the tribes in Laos, there are no Khmu people south of Vientiane. So almost every single prostitute I met in southern Laos came from north of Bolikhamsai.

I particularly think the tribal girls of Southern Laos are beautiful, even though a lot of them have dark skin they have pretty faces, and trust me I looked everywhere but I couldn't find any of them selling sex. So your comment about country girls selling sex is only partially true.

Most country girls are decent, respectable people. The way you say it makes it seem like they are all selling their body on the down low. Maybe some of them, but definitely not the majority.

Also, in rural Laos the development of the village depends heavily on the ethnic group. I noticed even in rural Laos, most ethnic Lao villages are heavily modernized and they all have electricity. It's usually the other ethnic groups that have no electricity and still live in grass huts. Yes, many Lao people I met have never even seen a television or ever been to the city. So I'm sure they were not selling sex. Some Lao people in the country can't even speak Lao. I met a lot of Hmongs that can only speak Hmong. So you are not 100% correct admin.

At the end of the day prostitution levels in Laos is at a high, regardless where the girls come from.

Brothels and bars doesn't just exist in the city but throughout the countryside as well to cater for the locals in the area. Those who have never seen a television suggests they are the poorest of the poor and are at risk of entering prostitution.

Prostitution is unfortunately almost everywhere in Laos. I was staying near Thateng which has a small population and my friend pointed out four different brothels in the area. People should have the freedom to seek or work as prostitutes but I find it somewhat disgusting. My friend and I used to drink beerlao and sing karaoke at a brothel which was kinda weird.

Yes admin I'm aware that it's not just in the cities but even the prostitutes in southern Laos mostly come from the north to work there. Few of the locals of southern Laos are actually selling in southern Laos. And it's mostly Lao Lum people! There are very few tribal Lao people selling themselves and I stand by this claim. Texas, have you ever been to Pa Um, Attape? It's even smaller than Ta Taeng and it has a multitude of brothels. I feel so horrible that Lao women have to do this yet I like to enjoy it sometimes. Btw I love Ta Thaeng. What are you doing in Laos TC? Teaching right?

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 27th Jun, 2014 at 2:31am
Prostitution is also about mixing with people, you need to know how to socialise with other girls at the establishment who share the same "interests", that's why you don't often see the ethnic minorities.

Most ethnic minorities don't like to blend in Lao society because they are different to mainstream Laotians in many ways including their language.

They also need to know how to travel, like you said prostitutes in the South come from the North, and prostitutes in Vientiane come from other parts of the country. It's hard for the ethnic minorities to leave their village/jungle.

Having said that, they could still prostitute outside of establishments that are generally occupied by mainstream Laotians. They don't necessarily need to be working in brothels but do it independently.

Post by Mak Nad on 27th Jun, 2014 at 4:13am
Actually the culture of Lao people which places importance on the girl being a virgin before marriage is different from the culture of many tribes in southern Laos, where many of the cultures encourage the girls to have a lot of sex before marriage. This is changing though, due to Lao influence and the culture of Lao people swallowing out the minority cultures. The Lao schools also have a role in this. In the past in a lot of villages in Southern Laos girls would have sex with many guys before they got married. Now, not so much but you can still find it in some less developed villages.

Whether or not someone is a virgin is irrelevant.

If they've lost their virginity, it doesn't mean they were once a prostitute. They may have had previous boyfriends.

It's their character that you should be looking at.

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Mak Nad on 27th Jun, 2014 at 4:59am
Maybe women think that way, but to men it definitely matters. I admit that it may be an ego thing, though. It's got more to do with the man's ego than the woman's character.

If a man knows that his woman has slept with another man it damages his pride. Pride is very important for men so I don't expect women to understand this like a man could.

One takes several factors into consideration before choosing a mate. Character is one of them, but not the only one.

The average man would not want to choose a woman he found no physical attraction to. Yes, I agree that character is important but it's only one of the factors and some people like to make it seem like all of them.

I'm not singling you out admin, but some women get very defensive and upset when men say they will only settle for a virgin. That's usually because they aren't virgins and they're afraid no one will want them.

Yes, there are some men who would settle for non-virgin women and they are usually the weaker beta-male types, or they don't have enough confidence to find a new girl so they have to settle for what they've got. There's a saying that goes "beggars can't be choosers."

I call those men "ຄົນບໍ່ມີສັກສີ"

A side note: People have different values, and I'm not gonna criticize anyone, as long as they don't criticize me for wanting a virgin.

Men, ask yourself. Is your woman a virgin? If she isn't, do you deny that you would jump at a chance to get a girl who is younger, more beautiful and a virgin? If you denied it, there's a 70% chance you're lying.

I think many men would prefer a virgin but they won't admit it because either

1) virgin girls don't want them

2) they don't have the social skills, confidence or money to get a virgin girl

Now, if you are capable of getting a virgin girl but don't want one, then I won't criticize you for what you do. Remember, it's your life.

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by Admin Saovaluck on 27th Jun, 2014 at 6:17am
It's not that they don't have enough confidence, but there is something about the girl that attracts them. A virgin girl might be a priority for some guys, while other guys couldn't care less and love them for who they are.

It seems like you have to settle for the stay-at-home type girls because you don't accept anyone who have had prior boyfriends.

Yes. I see what you mean.

There's no need for a "beta-male" to go to a relationship counselor as long as the wife is sufficiently obedient and knows her place in the fields alongside the water buffalo.

But, then, there's also no need for a relationship counselor for the alpha-male who is actually comfortable with a strong wife or girlfriend, either.

And furthermore, people have married "weak women" all throughout history. So are they all betas because they don't conform to your new age American theory of what a woman should be? What makes these women strong women? Just because some self important feminist somewhere said so? Do I have some kind of moral obligation to be with a "strong woman"? Last I checked strength was a masculine trait and not a feminine one. We have different views, I get it. But that doesn't mean i'm wrong and you're right. If you like strong women then go for it, but I'll stick with my "weak women" and that doesn't make me any less of a man. And no I will never conform to western values just because they're seen as progressive and being the "correct ones"

"'A key that can open many locks is called a master key, but a lock that can be opened by many keys can be opened by the entire world.' - Ancient Internet Proverb

Men have a duty to pursue as many sexual relations as possible while single. Women have the duty to reject their advances until the man makes a lifetime martial commitment to the woman. Women have complete control over the matter of sex and their choice to provide or deny allows them to control and even dominate men.

Every healthy man prefers a virgin to an easy woman. We can observe this preference across cultures and across time; the idea of woman as a sexually unrestrained being is unique to the modern Occidental perspective. Oswald Spengler observed the beginning of the egalitarian movement and predicted its repercussions in 1915. As predicted in his seminal work, "Der Untergang des Abenlandes", the United States and the rest of the West has and will continue to experience a decline in culture and population.

Was I even hinting that you have any "moral obligation" regarding this subject at all?? I didn't think so. You can marry any kind of woman you want and, as long as you are good to each other, it seems to me it would be a good match.

It's just that you said that certain desires & tastes necessarily indicate an "alpha male" vs. a "beta male." And you backed it up by going on with your assumptions about the requirement for a "relationship counselor." I merely wanted to state an alternate perspective. Perhaps an "alpha male" doesn't necessarily conform to your notion of one.

I said what I said because ...

I am certainly not opposed to "traditional" roles and values. In fact, my own 40-year-long relationship with my wife has been much more "traditional" than many in American culture these days. I just like to challenge fixed-set thinking, especially when it seems to be putting people into a "beta" class category for choices that don't necessarily hurt anything.

Idk if this counts as a functional society, but TC I'm sure you're familiar with some of the tribes of Se Kong and Attapeu and that area. Their culture encourages female promiscuity. Also Peter I think you are a good guy, a reasonable guy. Also the Mongolic people of the Altai Republic have a culture that encourages female promiscuity, but I'm not sure if it's still practiced. I know that it caused a lot of diseases to spread back in the day though. Traditional Tibetan society had women practicing polyandry. I have nothing against men who choose nonvirgins but I can't help but sense an aura of cuckold from them.

Perhaps not.  But among heterosexual people, there is no such thing as exclusively "female" promiscuity, so I'm also not sure why you qualify your question the way you do.

Any "society" (or individual) who enjoys male promiscuity also enjoys female promiscuity to the exact same extent.

But I wasn't trying to address societal norms or ideals.  I was just curious about personal preferences, since the previous comments had to do with judgments of persons as "alpha" or "beta."

Title: Re: Prostitution in Laos ? Why Lao?
Post by TexasCowboy on 28th Jun, 2014 at 12:38am
I have never encountered any ethnic tribes where the women were promiscuous before marriage. If anything, the women I met were so conservative that they would not allow any physical contact with any male outside of their family.

Polyandry in Tibet is not really promiscuity. Polygamy, be it a man with many wives or a woman with many husbands, is not promiscuous.

Do you have any sources for this?

@Peter: I fully agree that the labels "alpha" and "beta" are incorrect and seriously misleading. Although I haven't read much on the subject of human psychology & behavior, it seems that the social organizations and hierarchies established by humans are very different from wolf or dog pack. It is true though that most females prefer a strong and independent man.

Most societies tolerate prostitution to some degree while looking down on women who work in the industry. The institution of prostitution allows men to be promiscuous while discouraging the same sort of behavior in women.

The Ta-Oy tribe used to have a tradition where a boy would take a girl into the forest during the night and they would sleep there. The boy could dry-hump her and grope her and stick his fingers in any orifice he wanted but no sex was allowed. This tradition was common for most of the tribes from Savannakhet and southwards actually. Now they are becoming more Lao-ified and I'm not sure if this tradition still persists. Maybe in isolated mountain areas. The Yahern tribe also encourages girls to experiment with sex much like the Kreung tribe of Cambodia. I know someone from the Oy tribe of Attapeu and he has done the sleeping with the girl tradition himself but he says it has died out because now everyone goes to Lao schools and has adopted Lao customs.

Oh really? I've seen those huts with the square holes but I was told it was only a relic of history and they don't do it anymore. Where specifically in Attapeu did you see the huts? Was it in a village? Do you know if the tradition is still alive?

If it is then I'm definitely going there to stick my hand in that hole. I've been brushing up on my Cambodian language skills because I really want to go to that place mentioned in the Youtube clip above to take part in the tradition. I'm not sure if they will let me though, being an outsider.

I've been in some very isolated rural villages and the men will talk to you no problem but often times the women are very shy and won't even talk to outsiders.

Post by TexasCowboy on 29th Jun, 2014 at 12:34pm
I can speak some Lao and a lot of people in Laos can speak some English. A few of the ethnic youth who live in villages situated along the main highway in the south have impressive English skills. Some of them work in larger towns like Thateng or Pakse where I got to know a few of them.

I saw the hut in a Ta-Oy village 15-20 kilometres north of Thateng.

There is also a heritage site for tourists near Paksong where I saw one of these huts. You have to pay 10,000 kips to enter and the villagers try to sell handicrafts to tourists. I believe the hut belonged to the tribe where the older women have ear gauges.

A few of the Ta-Oy girls have small wooden huts where they sometimes sell Beerlao, cigarettes, and Thai energy drinks. My Kathu friend used to visit a girl late at night and there were no parents around. I sometimes went with him. But he was sad because polygamy is taboo among the Ta-Oy and he already had his first wife.

Post by Mak Nad on 30th Jun, 2014 at 4:34am
Oh yeah I know that place at Pak Song. It's called Pa Suam. That's not even a real village you know, its just a simulation for tourists. The name of the tribe with the earrings is Brao, who are found in the Pu Wong area of Attapeu. In the past they had elephant ivory in their ears but they have all sold it for money apparently. All those villages scattered along the Central Highway and around some spots of Attapeu are very Lao-ified and though they may be tribes they have also adopted a lot of Lao culture. They also have Lao names and they don't name their kids in their language anymore.

You can still find "pure" tribes that don't speak Lao and still have names in their own language around Chalen Xai in Attapeu and on the Lao-Vietnam border all the way from Atapeu up to Hua Phan in several scattered villages. In Savannakhet and Central Khammuan provinces there are many people of the Brao Tribe.

If you go up into the mountains in Khammuan province many kilos outside of Ta Khaek you can find more of these tribes, living completely with nature, and no Lao is spoken in those areas. It's my hobby to find these isolated villages. Wish I could go to Laos next year and discover some more before Lao people go and build schools there.
