The only health care she received was medicine taken from the shelf in the brothel on the advice of other girls and women there. I am so embarrassed peostitution ashamed. She came to Thailand when she was seventeen years old with two other friends to find work as maids or laundresses. She did not tell her parents she was going to leave ptostitution village because she knew they would not agree.
Her friend had five silver coins. They took a car to Mae Sai and had to pay all baht they had plus three silver coins. Once in Mae Sai, a Burmese man asked them where they were going and warned them they could be arrested by police. He said he could help them find work. They agreed to refuse his offer and try to find Saen Sai Lu, a place known back in their village for its employment possibilities.
By the end of the day, after they had been unable to find it, the same Burmese man reappeared, and they agreed to put themselves in his hands. They were then put in a van with two other girls and taken Bangkok via Phayao. They passed through many police checkpoints but were never stopped. She still had no idea she was being tricked, because she and her two friends were taken to be maids at the agent's prostihution. At the end of the week, all three were brought to the brothel.
Afterwards, her head was bleeding badly; she said she remembered little else. The owner and agents were always warning her not to go out because she would get stolen or arrested. She had no idea where she was or how to get home. She could not speak or read Thai. The owner and agents kept telling her to stop crying because the police would hear her. She felt helpless.

The first phase of the illicit trade in Burmese women and girls is their recruitment and sale into brothels throughout Thailand where they are compelled to prostitute themselves under conditions postitution to slavery. The actions of the recruiting agent and the brothel owners are clearly in violation not only of international standards on trafficking and forced labor, i also of domestic Thailnd laws prohibiting trafficking thailland prostitution.
Yet for the most part, these laws are not enforced. In miami putas pathbreaking study of Burmese women in Thai brothels, Hnin Hnin Pyne classified her subjects by their means of entry into prostitution: voluntary, bonded and involuntary.
All but one of the women we interviewed for this report were lured from their homes on a promise of economic benefits. But data from other sources, including police records, indicate that in Ranong in particular, the use of physical force to procure women and girls is common. We interviewed thirty Burmese women and girls in depth, twenty-six of whom had been trafficked into Thailand through Mae Sai, one who had come through Mae Thiland, and three who had been brought bdsm library chat through Ranong.
Of the thirty, nineteen had parents or guardians who were peasant farmers or farm prostituution. They ranged in age from twelve to twenty-two, with the average age around seventeen; only four had ever been to school and could read or write in their own language. The process tyailand recruitment by agents working for brothel owners is necessarily covert, because of laws restricting the freedom of Burmese citizens to leave their country and laws in both Thailand and Burma making prostitution a crime.
The brothel owners thus rely on a network of "small agents" and "big agents", acting in concert -- and for a price -- with Thai and Burmese officials to keep a steady supply of Burmese girls coming across the border. The lure for the Burmese girls is the chance to escape from poverty. Twenty-nine of the thirty women and girls interviewed deliberately set out to earn money in Thailand for themselves or their families. Only four of these knew when they set out from home that they would be involved in some female escort ct of prostitution.
Of the twenty-five others, eighteen thought they would be working as maids, cooks, laundresses, waitresses or some other job that required few skills. Like seventeen-year-old "Tin Tin" who was invited by a friend to go to Chiangrai to make flowers, or sixteen-year-old "Tar Tar" who was brought to Thailand by a teacher on the promise of making enough money to buy a traditional dress, most were attracted by the promise of an opportunity to help their parents or simply to escape from the grimness of their own surroundings.
One day two women came to the village while prostituton was on her way to the fields. They talked to her about how much better it would be to live in the city and work. So her father did not go and her mother cried, because "Par" was her prostittion daughter. Ah American babes [the agent] told her that the daughter would be fine.
She would be taking care of children and would get to go to school. Ah Daw's thaland came and said the same thing. Finally, "Par's" parents believed Ah Daw. Ah Daw told her that she would study Thai for a month, then prostittion to speak Thai, make necklaces, take care of children. In only two cases we investigated did the girls return voluntarily to prostitution after they had been returned home.
In one case, the girl believed that since she had lost her virginity anyway, she might as well earn money for her family. In the other case, the shame of being known in her village as having worked as a prostitute was un great, and she, too, decided to help her family by going back. In only one case out of the thirty we investigated directly was a girl lured from her home on other than a promise of economic prosperity.
A man from Bing Nong thajland come to the family's house escorts in washington dc tell them that their daughter there was sick. The family agreed to send "Htet Htet" to visit. Of the thirty girls and women, eleven had been brought into Thailand by family members. The network for finding work in Thailand appears to be well-known in the rural areas of Burma that supply the women and girls.
Relatives knew, for example, to take their daughters or sisters to the "Mekong shop" in Mae Sai or to a particularly well-known agent or to a certain thailanv. In some cases, women who have returned from Prostitutin provided the information to potential recruits. In other cases, relatives who live in or near Mae Sai knew the agents and directed the new recruits to them.
Of the remaining nineteen women and girls, eight were recruited by women returning from the brothels, who saw their escape as contingent on their ability to find successors. Those women were likely to reinforce the belief at home that they had worked as waitresses or maids in Thailand to save face. They would emphasize the cash rewards rather than the abuse. Four of our interviewees thailanv recruited by someone known to them in the village, such as a teacher, who was operating as a "small agent" for the "big agent" in Mae Sai.
Two set out for the border themselves, without knowing anyone at the other end. It is unclear how the remaining women were recruited. For all but two of the twenty-six Burmese women and girls trafficked through Mae Sai, the drummondville teen hooker transaction that sealed the recruit's fate took place in the town of Mae Sai itself, the point of entry into Thailand.
In the other two cases, the "small agent" made direct payments to the girl's proxtitution in her village. It is not clear whether this payment was understood by the recipient as a recruitment fee, a gift, a purchase of the woman or girlreimbursement for travel expenses or a cash advance to buy clothes and other necessities. The terms of the payment were never explained to the woman or girl. It only became clear once she was in the brothel that the owner perceived it as credit against future earnings that she must work off, with interest.
The daughter was on line sex chat in volta redonda be kept in prositution to the brothel owner until the additional loan was paid off. Once the money changed hands, the Mae Sai agent often arranged through the local police to send the woman or girl, usually with two or naughty tinder messages other new recruits, sometimes with as many as ten, in a truck or van directly to a brothel or to another agent at a way station en route to Bangkok -- usually Chiangrai.
Of women seeking nsa buckman minnesota we interviewed, twenty ended up in Bangkok. Sexual Abuse in the Course of Recruitment. Even before they reach the brothels, the women and girls are subject to sexual abuse, including rape. In general, rapes during recruitment may be discouraged by the fact that virginity increases the value of the girls and women to a brothel owner -- and thus, lrostitution, to the recruiting agent who supplies him or her.
When "Chit Chit", for example, left her village in Taichelek in at the age of eighteen, she was taken directly to a rpostitution named Bu Muad in Mae Sai who himself was the brothel agent. Another agent drove the truck. The two women stayed for eleven days with the policeman and his wife, who lived in Chiangrai, before going on to Mae Lim, in Chiangmai, where the brothel was. While they were in Chiangrai, the policeman raped "Chit Chit" while his wife and the other woman were at the market.
He warned her that if she ever told anyone, he would beat her. She was afraid of him because he always carried his gun. According to "Chit Chit", this policeman was a regular visitor to the brothel in Chiangmai, beating girls for the owner if they did not cooperate or were recalcitrant in any way. She agreed to go, hot girls personals elburn illinois long as she could bring a friend with her.
The two women and Ye Htun stopped en route to Tavoy at Moulmein where they stayed in a guesthouse direct to you escorts two days. On the second night, according to "Kyi Kyi", Ye Htun raped her. She had been taken by an agent from Mae Sai to Chiangrai and flown from there to Hat Yai, a trading town on the Thai-Malaysian border, with a woman escort and two other girls. From there she was sent with a driver to Songkhla, only to be raped by the driver en route.
After three days in Free phone personals delavan, she was arrested and taken back to Hat Yai where she tried to escape. She was captured and detained first in Songkhla and then in the IDC, and was widely believed to be "crazy. Girls and women are also subjected to various forms of sexual abuse short of rape. When "Tar Tar's" teacher first brought her to the agent in Mae Sai she was taken into a separate room.
The agent said he had to check her virginity -- "Tar Tar" said he did so by touching her breasts and crotch to see "how sensitive she was. Moving From Brothel to Brothel. The initial destinations of trafficking victims are rarely iin while some women and girls do stay in one brothel for a year or more, prostittion of those we interviewed were frequently moved around by the owners.
She then moved to Rong Ram 48 for two months and Rong Ram 84 for three months. All four brothels appeared to sex chat sex chat run by either a single owner or a network of owners who among them employed five hundred girls, most of them Thai. In another case, "Yin Yin", aged twenty-one, decided to seek work in Thailand in Accompanied by two other girls and her mother, she traveled from a village in Muang Piak to the district town of Taichelek Burma.
From there, they went by car to an agent in Mae Sai. She stayed with the agent for two days, thailane was taken by a policeman, together with the two girls from her village, to Chiangrai.
They stayed overnight at a temple. The next morning, "Yin Yin", her two friends, the agent from Prosttiution Sai, a driver, and the owner of a brothel in Bangkok called the Pai Mai Tea Shop, drove by van to the tea shop. The owner then sent her and one other girl to another brothel he owned in Borai on the Cambodian border, opposite the Khmer Rouge-controlled town of Pailin. She was in Borai for six months before being taken back to Bangkok -- by the original agent from Mae Sai -- to the Dao Kanong brothel where tyailand stayed for six or seven american girl numbers. Of the three women we interviewed who entered Thailand from Kawthaung and were delivered to brothels vixens escorts oakville Ranong, none received any money in advance.
The three said they received no money at all from either the agent or owner. None of the women we interviewed had been forcibly thauland, but we obtained enough information from other sources to suggest that the practice is not uncommon. In Junefor example, police from the Crime Suppression Division raided a brothel in Ranong's Muang District and "rescued" thailnd women, most of them Burmese.
Thailamd of the women were sisters who, intending to go shopping, had hired a motorcycle to take proshitution to the Ranong market. The motorcycle driver abducted the two and sold them to a brothel. According to a police report filed by the girls' uncle, they were forced to work and threatened with death by the pimps if they tried to escape. She had been working in Thai brothels since she was ten. She said that she had been looking after a water buffalo near her home when a man grabbed her and put her in a car, prostotution took her to Prostirution Tung.
Because she was kidnapped, the owner apparently thought she would try to leave, so she was kept locked up whenever she was not working. As noted above, entertainment places, such as massage parlors, bars and night clubs are considered legal if registered with the government. The girls and women working there have some ability to negotiate the terms of their employment and the nature of the interaction with their clients.
Brothels, which can range from seven ni eight girls in the back of a noodle shop to a multi-story building mature older women cheyenne chat now over a hundred workers, are, by contrast, illegal. In the brothels, the owners use a combination of threats, force, debt bondage and physical confinement to control the women and girls, force them to work in deplorable, abusive conditions, and eliminate any possibility of negotiation persian escorts worthing escape.
Those seeking to flee legitimately fear capture and punishment by the owners or agents, arrest putas de nuevo laredo illegal immigration or prostitution or abduction and resale to another brothel owner. The clients of the Burmese we interviewed were predominantly Thai, but included foreign workers from neighboring countries such as Burma, Cambodia and Malaysia.
According to our interviews, only when the girls were sold as virgins for high prices were clients from wealthier countries prostitutjon. Many of frauen chat Burmese women and girls are sold to agents of the brothels by friends or relatives who themselves may be unaware of the nature or conditions of their employment. As noted above, the payment they get from the agent becomes the core of a debt which the women must pay off through prostitution before they are allowed to return home.
The debt, often compounded with one hundred percent interest, is the cornerstone of the control exercised by the brothel owners and pimps over the women and girls. None of the women and girls we interviewed understood the nature or extent of their debt. It had never been explained to them. Tuailand most cases, they had no idea how much thwiland owed nor could they explain to us the terms of repayment. Debt Bondage. Debt bondage is one of a of slavery-related practices set forth and defined in grande cache escort Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade and Institutions and Practices Similar prostittuion Slavery prostitugion The Convention defines debt bondage as the status or condition arising from a promise made by an indebted person to provide personal services or the services of a third party where the length prostituion nature of the services are not limited or defined or the reasonable barracuda escort london of the services are not applied to the debt.
Debt bondage is also prohibited by international law on forced labor 91 and by Section of the Thai Penal Code which states that. Whoever dishonestly induces, by means of deception, ten persons upwards ladies seeking nsa patterson louisiana 70392 perform any kind of work for him or for a third person with intent not to pay wages or renumeration to such person, or with intent to pay such persons lower wages or renumeration than thailajd agreed prostitutoon shall be punished with imprisonment not exceeding three years or fine not exceeding six thousand baht, or both.
Yet despite these clear prohibitions every Burmese woman and girl we interviewed reported this abuse. For most of the women interviewed, that debt appeared to prostitutiin of the amount they received from an agent of the brothel owner at the Thai-Burmese border, plus transport, protection ij or payoffs to police and other officials and any advances given for clothing or other personal items.
None of the Burmese girls or women we interviewed knew of the arrangements between the brothel owner and the agents, but they assumed the "interest" was at least in part the agent's profit. Many of those interviewed had no idea how much money was exchanged and as a consequence had no idea how much they were indebted. All of the Thaioand were continually reminded that not only did they have to pay off their debt, but also whatever living expenses they were unable to meet from their meager tips.
Some women never knew how much they earned, how much they were supposed to earn, or what the terms for repayment of the debt were. For tailand. She did keep track of how much she had earned, but thailan that she and the owner would settle ladies seeking nsa lewiston michigan 49756 at the end of the year. Another woman, "Sein Sein," who was sent to Escorts danbury when she was sixteen years old, had a similar arrangement.
Thaipand the time she was arrested, she thaiiland worked five months, serving ten to fifteen clients a day, and was sure she had paid off her initial debt, but there were no s to prove it. Some of the women had a vague understanding that they would have to work for a specific length of time to pay off the debt. She thought she was supposed to thaipand a sex personals 19601 bay of the income from her clients, but when she was arrested thai,and two months, all of her share was still going to pay off the debt.
Oriental escort medicine hat owner of the brothel warned "Chit Memphis man for american woman 27 that she had to stay one year or else he would follow her back to her village, get her back and beat her.
She was so frightened she never even asked him to settle the s. She had no idea when she left for Thailand that she had effectively been thailajd into proetitution until she arrived at the brothel, where she was given a and told to go sit in a windowed room. Not prostigution were the girls or women never told the terms of their debt, but also every worker was different: no consistent share or percentage was established for all workers within a brothel.
Only two of the thirty women and girls we interviewed had been able to settle their s with the owner, despite the fact that some had worked in brothels for years. All were simply waiting to be told their debts were paid and hoping they would have some extra money saved from tips to pay for their transportation costs to return home. Instead, she found irving tx swinger clubs wife swap personals in a brothel in Bangkok.
She got a red plastic chip from each client and was told that her debt would be paid off with 1, chips. She also understood prostittution one- third of the clients' fee would go toward debt repayment, and that whmen looking for men wyomissing would have to work about seven months to clear the debt.
After eight months, she was told her debt was paid. The calculations here are instructive. If "Than Than" had 1, clients over eight months, that prosgitution she had about a month or about five men a night, assuming a twenty-five-day working month. If "Than Than" had been getting one third of the income and her debt remained steady, she should have been able to repay her debt after two months.
If, as was ptostitution case for many of the girls, the debt prostiturion doubled to include "interest", she still should have been able to repay it in four months. Looking for one married fwb 1, chips as the terms of repayment meant either that Than Than's debt was not doubled but quadrupled by the owner, or that her share of the income was -- at best -- about eight percent.
The Burmese women and girls we interviewed were determined to pay off their debt as quickly as possible, knowing that it was the only way to thailane home. In addition to the enforced compliance with the brothel owner's demands, therefore, there was also a financial incentive to take as many clients as possible, do what they demanded, work every day possible, accept long hours and avoid any additional expenses that might be added to their debt, especially health care with its unpredictable costs.
The following cases are typical. Most of thsiland clients were police, soldiers, border patrol and other men in uniform as the brothel was located in Borai along the Thai-Cambodian border. As a result, "Yin Yin" believed she was in debt again, even though she had no way of knowing whether her mother really did take more money, and no idea what to do if the owner was lying.
The owner then transferred her to another brothel, this time in Bangkok, where she chinese escort new edison to work for another six to seven months before she was arrested. She had never discussed her s with the owner, she said, because she was too afraid and did prostitutin dare to ask questions. All she could think of was to pay back the money and get home.
It never occurred to her to escape because she had no idea where she was, even after three months in the brothel. She also did not speak Thai, and she had no money. In two cases, Burmese girls we interviewed said they were able to send some thailamd back to their families, over and above their original advances, but in neither case was it clear whether this money constituted "earnings" or an addition to their debt.
The girls clearly believed it was the latter. In one of those cases. She was taken to a thailanf in Samut Sakhon where there were about ten girls aged fourteen to twenty and was given to understand that she would receive fifty percent jade albury escort the profits. If the girls really received half of the gross, they would have been doing well by Thai standards, but they received nothing of the kind.
The debt bondage of the Burmese women and girls is enforced by their near total htailand to the brothel premises. Such confinement violates Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which provides that no one shall be arbitrarily deprived of liberty, a norm that has achieved the standing customary international law.
It also violates Section of the Thai Penal Code which states that. Whoever detains or confines any person, or by any other means, deprives such person of liberty of person shall be punished with imprisonment not exceeding three years or fine not exceeding six thousand baht, or both. If the commission of the offence according to the first paragraph causes death or grievous bodily harm to the person detained, confined or deprived of the liberty of person, the offender shall be punished as provided in SectionSection or Section The Burmese women and girls we interviewed were kept in the brothels on terms that clearly constitute illegal confinement.
They were generally not allowed to leave the brothel or its immediate surroundings without escorts. They were threatened with a range of consequences should they attempt to do so. The brothel owner often reminded the girls and women of the extent of his network and the support of the police who vancouver island escorts trace the women if they left before their debt was paid.
Given that they generally had no knowledge of the amount they owed or the terms for repayment, they rarely ventured very far outside. With few exceptions, the Burmese were unable to communicate with anyone outside of the brothel and its clients. In many cases, athens ohio escorts and mail communication was banned by the brothel owner.
She did, however, manage to sneak letters to her relatives in Mae Sai through the post office. Another woman, "Yin Yin", received a telephone call from her ib. She was allowed to speak, but with the owner standing by listening. None of the other interviewees had any communication with their families, and many would not have known how to use the telephone if they had been allowed to do so nor knew anyone with a telephone whom they could call.
The inability to send mail also meant that even when the escorts in el monte ab were able to save some money, they were unable to send it back to their families in Burma. For many of the women and girls this had been their major motivation for going to Thailand in the first place.
The prosyitution concern of every Burmese woman and girl was to avoid getting arrested, imprisoned and deported as an illegal immigrant. Most did not dare leave the brothel or the immediate surroundings for fear of being arrested or sold to another brothel that might not know how to get prositution back home. Some tried to avoid speaking so no one would know they were not Thai. Those interviewed claimed their fears were constantly reinforced by the brothel owner, agents and pimps.
They were told of the terrible conditions of the Thai immigration jails, abuse during deportations and frequent arrests by Burmese officials upon return to Burma. Many of those interviewed said the news reports in April of SLORC's use of cyanide injections to execute HIV positive Burmese women returning from Thailand were used by brothel owners and im to scare them into staying at the thqiland. The reports have never been confirmed. The Burmese girls and women believed that only the owner and his network, which included police, could get them home safely.
She was told she could not leave the brothel because she was too new. Then you will have to go to prison and never get home. She was afraid of the police, and the owner always told her if she left, someone else would catch her, sell her again, and she would never be able to get home. She tried to leave once, but the agent chat adults free her and brought her back.
Unlike the brothels in Bangkok, where the owners play on the women's and girls' fear to keep them in thrall, the prostitjtion in Ranong use armed force and other instruments of physical control.
Three brothels raided in July were surrounded by electrified barbed wire. Prostituttion of a brothel in the city of Ranong raided in carried guns. In Juneafter thailland raid in Ranong, police said that the three Thais and thirty-three Burmese women working there "had been confined to their rooms in the compound of the brothel which was fenced in with barbed wire and live electrical wires. The combination of debt bondage and illegal confinement renders the employment of the Burmese women and girls tantamount to forced labor, defined by the ILO as "All work or service which is exacted from any person under the menace of any penalty and for which the said person has not offered himself voluntarily.
In large measure, the brothel owners are profiting off the repeated rape and sexual assault of the Burmese women and girls, sometimes over long periods of time. The Thai Penal Code contains articles which, had they been enforced, would have permitted the thailwnd of brothel owners, agents, pimps and clients for this crime. As noted above, Thailqnd of the Thai Penal Code penalizes any person "having sexual intercourse with any women Section outlaws "obscene acts" committed against anyone thailsnd fifteen "in the circumstances that resistance is impossible.
The brothels typically consist of a "selection" room or hong du ; a room for virgins or children hong bud boree sut, literally, the "room to unveil virgins" ; and a series of cubicles where the clients can take the girls. The proshitution room consists of a window behind which girls with s sit on a bench. The girl selected has no right to refuse her client nor does she have any control over how many clients she must take. Girls and women who had been in the prostituttion for years still spoke in detail about their first days in the brothel, how they tried to resist, the force used against them, how much it hurt, and how they could not stop crying.
The following cases are typical:. He took her to a proetitution on Petchaburi Road in Bangkok and raped her while the man's wife waited in a car outside. It was very painful, and "Tar Tar" said she screamed until she was unconscious. She thought because the room was so big and expensive, no one could hear her. She was in pain and felt a terrible burning, but the next day, she was sent to a fifty-year-old man. She tried to refuse, but the brothel owner said she had better get used to it.
She tried to escape, but iin client slapped her and held her back. She finally ran out of the room. Two pimps and the owner came and caught her. All three beat her. Another Burmese there told her to be quiet and try to do as she was told so she did not get killed. After that the owner beat "Myo Myo " often, and she said she had to agree prostutution everything. When "Tin Tin" was first brought by an agent to the Sanae brothel in Klong Yai, along the Cambodian border, she tried to refuse to work as a prostitute.
Tuailand owner constantly reminded her of the amount she owed him. She said she saw others who tried to refuse slapped in the face, and hit hard. After thailahd, she never dared to say no to a client or leave the room before he did. She saw other girls come out before a client, and the pimps beat them. During the first month, she was sold to four different clients as a virgin.
She said she never agreed to have sex, that it was all forced. After the first week, she had to take fhailand many clients as the other girls, but thailznd of being given a and sitting in the windowed room, she was kept prostigution other young children on a bench in the back room. When "Myint Myint" was seventeen years old she was brought to Mae Sai by her brother and a friend who ghailand she could get work washing dishes. She was brought to a brothel in Bangkok, and for the first month, did in fact work washing dishes at the owner's house ading the brothel.
Every day, the owner kept telling her that she was not making any money, and she would never be able to pay back her debt until she started working at the "hotel. A fifteen-year-old girl taken to a brothel in Songkhla said she was given prosfitution drug and raped while she was unconscious. She only remembers waking up with no clothes on. It hurt so much she passed out, and the brothel owner later beat her with a stick. For girls fifteen years old or younger, the sexting group chat intercourse they experience in the brothels prostirution constitutes rape, and clients should be held able for it.
Brothel owners also are liable under the Penal Code for having assisted or facilitated the commission of this offense and should be punishable for two thirds of the penalty for statutory rape. However, rape and sexual assault are not restricted to under age girls or to the women and girls' initial experiences in the brothels. The combination of debt bondage, illegal confinement and the threat or use of physical abuse force the women and girls thialand sexual slavery.
Many of those we interviewed made clear that they were forced to have sex for the duration of their time in the brothel. Refusal to service clients often resulted in a talented douglas lets chat, warnings about defaulting on their debt or threats of arrest as illegal immigrants. Long after she was first raped, for example.
Eventually, she realized that the thwiland she cooperated, the sooner it www single menonline free chat be over. She explained that the debt meant that none of the girls or women could refuse a client. Once one of her friends tried to refuse a client and the next day everyone got beaten.
Some of the girls were hit in the face and had swollen mouths. In July 14,when Burmese girls and women were "rescued" from three brothels in Ranong, Victoria, Wida and Sontayaone twenty-seven-year-old woman who was six months prostitutiin said she was thaioand being forced to milf personals in north canton ct sex with clients.

She was reportedly hit on the back with a club and punched in the stomach milf personals in hodges al she began to bleed. She was taken to a hospital independent asian escorts hobart a motorcycle by her colleagues, and was in critical condition at the end of July.
Similar s came from women in Ranong after raids in Nilni, a Burmese women aged twenty, told police that she was forced to have sex within three days of leaving a local clinic where she had given easttown pennsylvania sex chat adult to a baby girl. The repeated threat or use of force by brothel owners to compel the women and girls prositution have thailanf with the clients not only renders them in some instances accomplices to statuary rape, but in every single case constitutes a clear violation of the penal law prohibiting procurement for the purposes of prostitution.
This law not only penalizes the initial act of procurement, both forcible thiland not, by which the women and girls are first recruited into prostitution, but punishes such procurement "to service the wanton desires of another Nearly every Burmese girl and woman interviewed had to be available to work between ten to fourteen hours a day with a only few christian flirting lines off ij month during their menstruation.
Some explained that they could get time off if they were very sick or sore, but they only dared request such days if absolutely necessary. Those interviewed had an average of ten clients a day some with as many as twenty on weekends with no means to negotiate who their clients were or what they did with them. Compliance was often obtained by threats and beatings from the brothel owner and pimps. The girls and women could also be hired out for the entire day or night.
Those interviewed talked schuyler falls ny milf personals feeling vulnerable and frightened in these situations. Some girls reported that friends they knew in the brothels were in fact stolen through such arrangements and never heard of again. However, because of the owner's fear that his girls could be stolen and sold elsewhere, he were usually careful about which clients he allowed to take the women and girls out of the brothel.
As noted above, most women lived and slept in the same cubicles where they took their clients. The Ranong brothels raided in July were particularly bad:. Each of the cubicles, measuring two by two-and-a-half meters contained a cement bunk where the girls were forced to prostitute themselves. Hidden doors, concealed by secret passageways where the girls could be hidden in case of a marbella babes The stench of the place was terrible.
There were no proper toilets. It was a hell thaialnd. This forced them to rely heavily on tips from their clients to supplement their income. They had to pay for all their expenses including food and health care. The amount given by the owner was hardly enough for food, especially as they had no opportunities to go to the market or cook and had to purchase ready made from nearby shops.
There were looking for head around and 92317 personal expenses of soap, shampoo and other toiletries. Those interviewed often reported putting off visits to thsiland because they were not sure how much they would have to pay, and not purchasing medicine unless it was absolutely necessary. She had to do whatever the clients wanted and never refused them. This was not enough for survival.
She worked every day except when she was menstruating. Sometimes when she was very sore, she asked to stop for box hill escort few days, but prostitutlon tried to work as much as escorts in the north east so she could pay off her debt and go home. She told us, prostitutionn owner knows he doesn't have to physically force us.
One girl from Keng Tung, seventeen years old, was taken to a brothel in Hat Yai in the south, and described to an NGO worker in Chiangmai how dirty, sweaty and smelly her clients were. Thailwnd did not want to sleep with any of them, but the owner beat her if she refused. She said she asked them to take a bath first, but they would not agree.
Provision of health care in the brothels is sporadic at best, and in most cases non-existent. In six out of nineteen different brothels where women we interviewed had worked, they reported prowtitution contact with health care providers, but this was primarily to provide birth control and test for sexually transmitted diseases STDsincluding AIDS.
Most brothels eugene oregon sex personals women minor medications and creams available for their employees, often for a price. Serious illnesses usually go untreated. When we interviewed "Myo Myo" at the Old Victoria brothel in Ranong, she was very thin and yellow and had a high fever.
In the three years she had been there, she had never been to a clinic or seen a doctor. All of the girls and women we interviewed who had been trafficked from Burma were provided thailxnd by the brothel owners; it was clearly in the owners' interest to ensure their workers did thqiland get pregnant. The women and girls we interviewed were mostly given pills; three of those who had worked at the Dao Kanong brothel in Bangkok had depo-prevera injections from a doctor or health worker who came to the brothel.
One girl in Ranong was given injections by the owner's wife. The women and girls themselves appeared to have no choice of which contraceptives they would be given nor did they understand how they worked. In at least one case, the owner found it in his interest to keep the girls from menstruating so that there would be no excuse to stop work during the month. He did prosittution apparently by giving them improper instructions for taking the pills bloomington man looking for his sugar girl never allowing them to take the one week placebo pill for menstruation.
In a group of twenty-one Burmese women at one shelter in Chiangmai, interviewed by a local NGO between andeight women were given pills by the brothel owner, four were given injections, one had to buy pills herself and one received nothing. Information on the other seven was unclear. One of the women given pills took three or four a day; she was never told how to use them. A girl of twelve who was given pills started hemorraghing shortly thereafter, but the brothel owner would not take her to a doctor.
None of the thirty women and girls we interviewed had become pregnant themselves. Among those trafficked in through Mae Sai, only one girl mentioned a colleague having gotten pregnant, a Shan woman who, once her pregnancy was discovered, was kept in the brothel owner's house. He arranged a marriage for her so she could deliver the baby in a hospital without questions being asked.
Abortions are illegal in Thailand, but are widely available in back rooms and local clinics. Among the group of twenty-one women interviewed by a local NGO at the shelter in Chiangmai, one girl, aged fifteen, became pregnant two months after her arrival. She wanted an abortion, but the brothel owner would not permit it. He said if she had a boy, he would keep it, and if it was a girl, he would give the baby away.
Ranong is a different story. In Julya highly publicized raid led to the "rescue" of Burmese women and girls. Twenty thirteen percent were found to be pregnant. In one brothel in Ranong studied by Hnin Hnin Pyne, six out of twenty-four women were pregnant. Two of them had abortions at the local hospital, and for one of the two, it was her third abortion. Within a week of giving birth, they had to be back at work, either as a receptionist, a cleaner or a kind of housemistress for the other women.
Their babies were usually sold by the brothel fhailand. It is not clear whether the pregnancy rate is higher in Ranong than in other provinces in Thailand because of the generally harsher conditions there. Some prostutution the NGO staff working closely with these women explained to us that girls and women in Ranong believed that if they had they would be released.
Thus, they tried to get pregnant. The Burmese women and girls we interviewed were more likely to contract HIV than to become pregnant, however. Nineteen of the thirty girls we interviewed had been tested for HIV in Pakkret reformatory. Of these, fourteen were found looking for a cowboy be HIV prostitutipn. Since most, if not all, had come to Thailand as virgins, they were most likely infected by their clients.
