Sex between a Laotian and Non Laotian- what is the real situation
28th Jul, 2013 at 7:26am
 
You always read that it is illegal for a non Laotian man to have sex with a Laotian woman.  Doesn't matter whether its pay or girlfriend.

What actually happens if you get caught?

How diligent are they enforcing it?  Is it just wink wink nudge nudge or are they really out to get you?

I read that there are some obvious places where people meet and leave for physical pleasure.  Surely the police know about these places.

A Laotian friend told me that it is no problem, but he hasn't lived there for some time.

Does anybody actually know of a situation where someone was caught?

Thanks.

According to the law in Laos (if one choose to take it seriously), it is illegal for a foreigner to stay in the same room with a Lao woman overnight if you can't prove that the both of you are married.

I've heard of a foreigner in Vientiane get fined as much as $5,000 many years ago, but I haven't heard of anyone being sent to jail as a result of sleeping or staying with a Lao woman.

You can do it at your own peril. Generally, the authorities are not out to get you but you just never know. Sometimes a local tuk tuk driver might not like you, or he thinks you have money just because you're a foreigner, and he might lead the police to your room to get his share of the dividend.

Situations like this are examples where you have to be alert in a corrupt society as Laos.

Sending kids to get education in China is the sign of dummy comma? I don't think so. They are more , much more smart. Go to place where easy money can be got.

Yes you are correct.Its only that of my personal opinion
I have a friend who is an academic advisor at a university.She see alot of student coming from China and India .I'm pretty sure other places too.My point is that
the school here let people think and open their minds to
everything including science and politics.I"m not in anyway
bashing China. You know that plane that just crash in San Francisco ? Majority of those kids that was on that flight were Chinese.They paid around $5000 us dollar just to a summer class in the university here.That my friends say alot . If you wanna join the communist party I'm pretty sure
there are good school for them . Wink

If I had a choice in university, I would choose the one offering open science and politics and teaching how to crack others wallets.  Laugh

Thank you for your response Ms Administrator

You say " stay in the same room with a Lao woman overnight "...  would I be correct in assuming that it is illegal just to be alone in a room with someone in an intimate setting even though it isn't overnight?

To others who have responded, could I ask you in a friendly way to stay on topic as I am most interested in this.

Thank you.

Generally speaking, it is illegal to be alone with a Lao woman in a room for sexual activities anytime, day or night but night time is more dangerous because that's when the police can come knocking on your door to do checks.

Usually they don't check during the day time because you are allowed to have a friend visit your room, and you could argue that she is your friend.

The bottom line is "Non-marital sexual relationships between Lao citizens and foreigners are not permitted under Lao law" and I disagree with this ridiculous law. Go out and find murderers and thieves, and leave the good people alone the way they want to live their lives.

"Non-marital sexual relationships between Lao citizens and foreigners are not permitted under Lao law"

As you said, if both parties are Lao citizens , it is OK?

Some years ago here, a couple watched semi-porn video at home, got caught and got fined. With public angry on internet, relevant department said sorry and returned fine.

There are funny stories for commie-oriented places. Grin

I know two local couples who live together, and they are not married. The authorities tend to be lenient because they are in their prime in their 50's, and they are divorced from a previous relationship.

If you're young, not married and living together, the whole village will look down on you and your parents. That's why Lao citizens tend to marry at a young age so they can be together.

Oh getting married just to be together as first love not good
idea.I realize that nobody can see what the future hold,but
if you're young and in love.Those 2 can be very dangerous.
We all know when you're young you tend to make choices
that's not always correct.But when you married that's a whole different ball game.You just can break up and ok you
go your way and i'll go mine.Now throw kids into the mix. Grin
Does Laos have a child support law Admin ? Over here they
throw people in jail if you don't support them til they're 18 yrs old.
