Bangkok, Thailand, 2017 – Even though prostitution is prohibited by Thai law, it is practiced by a large part of the society. This industry is what links most foreigners to the country – good or bad – it is just a fact. Having studied these prostitution over many years and in many parts of Thailand, it is hardly possible to imagine the country without this sex industry. What will happen in the future to this industry is impossible to foresee. But there are undoubtedly very serious consequences of it according to HIV and other sexually related diseases, which are generally well known; and therefore that is something everyone would have to be concerned about, not just Thai people and others involved, but everyone who embraces and care about the world community.
