Forced Prostitution in Thailand
Year after year innumerable young girls from North Thailand and the surrounding countries are sold into prostitution. Bangkok, Pattaya and other centers of sex tourism, brothels and massage parlous in Japan, Germany and elsewhere are in constant need of “fresh goods” for this filthy trade.
Northern Thailand is known for its poverty, particularly in rural areas, where girls have few job opportunities. When they finish elementary school at age 12 or 13, many girls are sold into prostitution by their parents.
Tempted to go to Bangkok by the false promises of human traffickers, they end up in a brothel or massage parlor. Children from the ethnic minorities, especially northern mountain tribal groups, are at particular risk. In this way, thousands of underage girls and boys are forced to prostitute themselves.
