Asia is culturally different than the West and this can be also seen in the way prostitution is seen. While Asia is a huge continent with a variety of different cultures, some of these cultures are very open to prostitution. This can go so far that in some cultures it seems to be possible to buy every woman if the price is right.
Especially Thailand and the Philippines are extremely open and tolerant when it comes to prostitution. This may seem surprising as in Thailand prostitution even is forbidden. However, it is still widely available throughout the country. Of course, this topic is difficult to analyze as no official statistics are available and people don’t tell the truth about this topic. It can be seen as a contradiction that prostitution is forbidden and still available in many Asian countries.
Also in Western countries, people don’t talk openly about prostitution or touch another topic cheating wives. While everyone knows that both things exist, it is hard to get statistics as people don’t talk openly about it. In Asia, I could hear an ambitious statement from a couple of men. Friends of mine, who were living in Thailand, told me that they spend a lot of time seducing women.
Their judgment was that they could have every woman they wanted if they were just paid enough. They said you have to know how it works and spend some money. Also, married women were no problem they confirmed. You might need to pay more for some women and less for others, but you can have them all. While it is hard to fully prove these statements and admit that there also could be some exceptions, I also found out that many married women could be bought.
In some marriages, the husband even didn’t seem to care about it and in some situations, everything seemed to be hidden from the husband. I also experienced many cases where wives could be bought for sexual services. What surprised me furthermore was the fact that some women were not at all interested in sex without financial benefit, even when they were approached by very attractive men.
Having sex seemed to be more accepted if the man pays the woman. Often the women even were offended if sex was offered just for fun as if this was morally not accepted. It was not ok for women to have fun with sex as then the woman was regarded as a horny bitch. But if she was doing it for money it was seen as OK as the woman was getting something in return and often it was added that she was doing it to support her family, which was seen as very positive.
While many women say they work as prostitutes to support their families, this also seems to be true in many cases. However, it is also often just an excuse. In reality, they spend their money on luxury goods or e.g. drugs. So a large variety of different situations and reasons can be found why Asian women sell their body and how often they do it.
Some only do it from time to time e.g. when they receive a good offer and others regularly offer themselves. They don’t like to talk about it and try to do it secretly as they expect sanctions from their families. Officially prostitutes are seen as the lowest class of women existing and so no one wants to be part of it, but as long nobody finds it out, it seems to be O.K.
