Assoc Prof Sukhum Chaloeysap of Suan Dusit Poll on Saturday said that he was not surprised with the report that Ministry of Culture had found more than 1,000 websites claiming to be by university students selling sex.
The quoted price ranges from 1,500-3,000 baht or higher for very good looking female students. When the ministry personnel phoned the published phone numbers, they could contact actual women claiming to be university students.
Mr Sukhum said he had been informed by Rajabhaet Suan Dusit students that some websites featured sex workers dressed in the uniform of Suan Dusit students as well. He wanted every university to discretely investigate sex-for-sale students whether it was true and if it were true, the students should receive psychological therapy as they were also human beings.
Mr Sukhum wondered why the concerned authorities did not take action to close down the offending websites or the issue was treated as normal.
He also revealed that female students selling sex were not confined to only websites but by peer-to-peer networking. One female student sex worker could offer a network of over 20 students with pictures album to be browsed by prospective clients.
My first reaction when I read this story was to laugh at the fact that Assoc Prof Sukhum Chaloeysap wasn’t shocked by the report. The only reason he wouldn’t be shocked is if he knew what was going on. Yeah, sure you were “informed” about these sites by students. 🙂
But I always wonder about the people who are shocked. Of course the same person who is shocked by this is the same person who doesn’t quite understand that putting this information out to the press has caused “thai students selling sex” to become the number one Google search term in Thailand. Come on now, you know you googled some variation of that phrase. Admit it.
