Everywhere you look, for heaven's sake, there are ladies. Never mind for heaven's sake, this is heaven. It is the Garden of Eden, where you are allowed to eat all the apples you want. The air itself is sexy. Never mind meanderings on hill tribes and Buddhist temple architecture, or burble about meditation and mantras, and dire warnings about 'prostitutes' and 'the sex industry'.Because that is why you have come here. You are a man with ample leisure time and money in your pocket, and you are here for the ladies. Because they do it.
Welcome to Thailand, where hundreds of thousands of male tourists are lured
every year by thoughts of luscious silk-skinned maidens whose smiles promise ecstasy. And despite the exotic sights, gorgeous beaches and mouth-watering food, for many the magic of the east means sex.And today in the raucous seaside resorts like Patang and Pattaya armies of sultry young temptresses ensare the hearts and bankrolls of besotted foreigners.
Totally frank, Kit McCann charts his own uninhibited rake's progress through the moonscape of lust and its pitfalls. Alternating between personal experiences and apocryphal tales narrated by red-eyed stumble-wrecks, he reveals the euphoric highs and the dark underbelly of the Land Of Smiles in ways that will delight, amuse, arouse and terrify. Because behind the glitzy sex industry, is the official doublethink which pretends sex isn't for sale, the solemn absurdities of Thai bureaucracy, and a vast comedy of corruption, deceit, drugs, murder, despair, suicide, and above all, greed. He should know, he saw it all.
Kit McCann is a nomad with several passports, who has spent his life seeking somewhere warm, cheap and friendly. Wafting there by chance and inclination, he has made Thailand his home for the last eight years.show more
