This write up is pretty good. I was expecting the usual Wiki piece that was very vague and not very imformative but this reads pretty well.

i liked this bit

Bargirl — Mostly short and dark-skinned farm girls from the provinces, a bargirl can be spotted a mile away thanks to her pink hotpants and the kilo of gold around her neck. Often found in happy financial symbiosis with the sexpat.[ulist][li] Sexpat — Fifty-plus, bald, beer belly, stained shirt, lovestruck expression and a hairy arm wrapped around a girl too young to be his daughter. He's found what he's looking for.[/li][/ulist][ulist][li] Ladyboy (kathoey) — Either tall, large-handed, wears too much makeup, possesses an Adam's apple and has large breasts... or has accomplished the art of camouflage so well that you just filed her/him as an office lady or bargirl.[/li][/ulist][ulist][li] Expat — A farang walking about purposefully in dress shirt and long trousers, seemingly oblivious to the fact that it's 35°C outside. For extra credit, try to distinguish between the scruffier English teacher type and the jet-setting expense package type. Or try classifying them by the old joke about the three types of expat — missionaries, mercenaries and misfits.[/li][/ulist][ulist][li] Yuppie — Like every other big city, Bangkok boasts a coterie of young professional types who are hip, well-educated and relatively affluent. Similar to the Expat, they usually sport business attire and are likely to be hurried — except they probably know a shortcut, and they aren't sweating so profusely.[/li][/ulist][ulist][li] Khao San Road vagabonds — Braided hair, bead necklace, sarongs, shorts and floppy pants, either on their way to or just back from the beaches. Dazed and bewildered when torn apart from the familiar surroundings of Khao San Road[/li][/ulist]

about sex


longbeach's comments are pessimistic
prostitution is prohibitet in thailand
there are only a few places police close both eyes!
and it's the last way to go to these places
for poor famer daughters to pay the BANK CREDITS
for their family!
mayby some of them are too 'dirty' to go back
and these are he's talking about.
normally they're very shy!!!

Not my comments. From Wiki, learn to read. Thailand has bargirls galore (over 1 million) and they are prostitutes and police do turn a blind eye. What can they do? Arrest 1 million of them?
