I love you, you pay my rent

“Is it just me”, I said to my friend P when we saw this ad on the Skytrain, “or is this about fat old German sex tourists sending money to bargirls in Pattaya?”

“I think so too”, said P, whose own plastic surgery and trips to Europe were paid for by gay sugar daddies, at least one of them German.

How much sex tourism contributes to the South-East Asian economy is up for debate, but you’ve got to wonder when multi-national corporations start acknowledging the capital flow in their advertising campaigns.
