Podcast: Female Thai author talks about how sex is viewed in Thai culture.


Recommended Posts

Its an hour long but worth a listen, quite insightful in places and even addresses why you hear "up to you" so often, what the non P4P girls are likely to be thinking if/ when they are approached by a western guy and how not every smile is an open invitation.

From here http://www.bangkokpodcast.com/thai-sex-talk-kaewmala/

 

Kaewmala, author of the fun, sexy, and educational book ‘Thai Sex Talk’. She is also a noted commentator on social issues, prolific blogger, talented translator and all-around cool woman. She talks about the nuances of sexuality, flirting, dating and love in Thai culture, and helps us understand some of the more complex facets of the area, such as why so many beautiful, smart, funny, middle-class women in Thailand remain single, and some of the hangups and problems that foreign men find when they approach them.

Your very welcome, I hope you enjoyed it.

 

Will listen later too, the insight will be important for future references

 

If it is research for your first trip , it does not contain anything I would exactly call "pearls of wisdom" but you might take something away from it.

Either way another persons perspective on things can sometimes be worth a listen.

 

Hope you enjoy.

Interesting listen, some good points from the lady. However the interviewer is a bit of a dick sounds like he isn't very knowledgeable on thai women and society. Thanks for the post Vortex.

Vortex finally got around to listening to the podcast last night and found it quite amusing!

 

Given the fact i lived in Pattaya for 12 years kinda means there wasn’t any real surprises but I had to laugh when the guy questioned how a BG can dance like a porn star on stage but when you BF her and she gets changed they walk out in the most conservative clothes going!

 

Thanks for the posting the link.

I agree, I thought the interviewer came across as a big of a dick also.

Glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the feedback.

 

I did not expect many expats to learn much from it but I found it interesting, amusing in places and generally enjoyable also, so I thought I would share it.

I'm about half-way in, great so far. Thanks for sharing.

Anybody know of book recommendations touching on similar issues within Thailand? Mainly cultural expectations and sexuality.

(PA should really set up "required reading" section of the best informational content like ebooks or books and link them using affiliate urls.... If they haven't already)
