Why in Thailand a lot of transvestites and transsexuals?
Transvestites – Men who try to look like women, dress in women’s clothing, consume women’s cosmetics and try to imitate the opposite sex.
It is believed that transvestites, depicting women, receive sexual satisfaction, but it is not at all necessary.
The structure of the Thai economy, focused primarily on tourism, creates a specific situation with workplaces: girls need much more than young people. For example, in show business, serving tourists, proportion «Young men» is 1 \ 10. Therefore, the number of young Tiskers is growing, quite normal in sexual terms, but those who want to get «feminine» Work.
Sometimes, speaking of the diversion of transvestites in Thailand, they are confused with Transsexula, That is, with people who have changed their floors to the opposite. But they should still be distinguished, since transvestites are only changed into women, while transsexuals tend to fully fit the female image.
By the way, it is transsexuals called «Third floors» in Thailand. They are also called Ladyboy (Ladyboy) or Rat (Kathoey).
And now let’s return to our question about the domain of transvestites and transsexuals in Thailand.
To a considerable extent, the myths distributed by guides and authors paid «Reviews» and articles on the Internet designed to add exoticity of this already exotic country.
Among such myths – stories about free sex transactions in Thailand; that the king of this country – transvestite and finances to itself like; Finally, that in the country – Matriarchate and be a woman prestigious and more profitable.
All of these impact fictions lose meaning if you familiarize yourself with statistics. Transsexuals and transvestites in Thailand, by different estimates, from 30 to 180 thousand people. If you take even the largest digit on faith – 180 thousand, then it is just 0.27% of the 65 million people of Thailand, so what kind of dominate can?
