Seems that not only the men are going on sex tours to Thailand, but Japanese females as well! Equality? Not enough foreigners in Japan? Are they really sex starved? You be the judge.
Herds of horny Japanese women are flocking to Thailand to make sure its capital city lives up to its name, according to Shukan Shincho (1/25).
Bangkok and its myriad netherworld charms have apparently been drawing Japanese women by the planeload over the past few years.
"Go-go boys started off working at gay bars by servicing mostly German and Australian women. Women of Japanese businessmen stationed in Thailand started going off to buy them while their husbands were otherwise occupied. Those women would go home and tell their friends about what they'd done and then they'd all come back to Bangkok again together. Bangkok earned itself a reputation and women started coming here in small groups," a former trade company employee once stationed in the Thai capital tells Shukan Shincho.
Japanese women are providing plenty of patronage for the gay bars where the go-go boys work along Bangkok's Soy Twilight. Many of the bars feature the boys dancing naked on stage. Women buy them drinks costing from 20 to 30 Baht (about 700 to 1,000 yen).
