Add to GoodReads. Woman, Man, Bangkok. During the early decades of the twentieth century, Thailand's capital, Bangkok, took on an increasingly cosmopolitan character-a development fueled both by global economic forces and a local revolution in communications. The s were a particularly dynamic period of social and cultural transformation that had a profound impact on the development of Thai modernity.

Launching our Global Boys Initiative: The Sexual Exploitation of Boys in Thailand
Woman, Man, Bangkok: Love, Sex, and Popular Culture in Thailand -
The focus of most of studies of sexual behavior has been on younger adults and adolescents because they are perceived as having higher levels of sexual activity than older persons and a consequently higher risk of HIV infection. Much less attention has been paid to the sexual behavior of men and women in their forties and fifties. The study also examines the influence of initial sexual experiences on later sexual behavior. The results indicate that older Thai men and women were well informed about methods of HIV transmission, but many were unaware of antiretroviral medications ARV. Older adults were also less accepting of HIV positive persons than were younger adults.
This study draws together survey and qualitative data on sexual practices among more than 1, young Northern Thai people aged years. The survey data indicate that sexually active young people frequently engage in, or are subjected to, risk-taking behaviours that may expose them to sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies. These include having multiple sexual partners and quite frequent partner turnover. High percentages also engage in unprotected sexual intercourse with various types of sexual partner steady, casual and paid , and young women especially had often experienced sexual coercion.
