The sex trade in Thailand is appalling. It is so blatant, so in your face. It passes itself off as normal when in fact everything about it is sick and degrading. Here is how it typically works:

A young Thai girl is pressured to earn money to support her family.

She’s introduced to her first client.

She’s expected to service three clients a day.

It’s become a a multi-billion dollar business. Two million people work in the Thai sex trade. What boggles the mind is that approximately 40% of them are children.
