Oh this one I just couldn't pass up, I quick check on the web and I
find at 
the following:

<title>Prostitution in: Thailand</title>

<link rel="owner" rev="made" href="">

<h1> Thailand </h1>
<strong>General Information</strong> about country, people, geography and
climate can be gotten from the
<a href="">

CIA World Factbook entry</a>. <p>

<strong>Legal Situation:</strong> <em>Prostitution</em> is technically
illegal, but largely tolerated. There seems to be a recent crack down
on child prostitution though. A <a
href="thailand_economics.txt">report about
the econonomics and politics of child prostitution in Thailand </a> is
available online. <P>

Four very comprehensive articles about the Thai scene appeared in
<li> <a href="thailand_sex.txt">Sex in Thailand</a>
<li> <a href="Bangkok.txt">Bangkok</a>

<li> <a href="bangkok_story.txt">Bangkok Story (including
<li> <a href="bangkok_faq.txt">Bangkok Thailand FAQ</a>

Bits and pieces:
<li> Excerpts from a PhD thesis about prostitution in Thailand
(seems like
I chose the wrong field...) are <a
There's even a map of the interesting area included.
The <a href="">author's home
contains a photo of the Pussy Razor blade Show in Patpong.

Some of the text on the other links implies that the TAT is really only
interested in the PR campaign.  Sigh.

Of course, Jason. :^) Notice the article in question, "TAT seeks Internet porn clean-up", in no way suggests that the TAT is intent on cleaning up the porn industry itself. This way they make airs of playing the 'good guy' (by beating up a little guy) while drawing attention to an important tourist attraction. A highly over-rated one I might add.
