Prostitution, Prostitutes, Escorts, World Sex Guide

Thailand

Legal Situation:

Prostitution Status: Prostitution is technically illegal, but largely tolerated. It has been culturally accepted for a long time. Prostitutes are never arrested (underage prostitutes are sent to education camps); buying sex is legal. There seems to be a recent crack down on child prostitution though: buying sex from someone under 18 is illegal; every once in a while authorities like to catch a foreign paedophile and send him to a long prison sentence. Nude or even topless dancing is also illegal but is widespread. Pimping and operating brothels is illegal.
Pornography is illegal.
The age of consent: The age of consent is 16. Police discourage girls between 16 and 18 from the prostitution business.
