Cambodia - Sex Trap

A glaring omission from the video is the throngs of Western sex tourists and pedophiles who fuel the sex trade in Cambodia.

Everyday plane-loads of foreign sex predators arrive at Phnom Penh, where they'd fan out across Cambodia to take advantage of Cambodia's poverty.

I lived two years in Phnom Penh and I cannot admit what has been said in the previous post. This is really a cliché.Obviously the western sex tourists are not the main issue in the prostituion industry of cambodia. Mistreatments and beatings and gang rapes as testified in the video above are common and are committed by cambodians. Once again like in Thailand the sex industry here relies on locals mainly and also chinese and they happen with brothel girls.

Sex tourist don't go to brothels. they deal with independant prostitutes.

I was very sad that even such a wise guy like Ritthy Phan who recently shot an excellent documentary about prostitutes in PP also accused western sex tourist in a recent interview on RFI radio. This is obviously not the cause of the situation. By the way the main western "market' for prostitutes in Cambodia are not the sex tourists but the expats that live here.

I don't want to devlopp this issue further because there is too much to say and this is not the place for that. Just keep in mind that the reality is far more complex than the unresponsable statement above.

I do not think western sex tourists take advantage from cambodia's poverty. In fact, the local cambodian people themselve are responsible for this matter, they set up this kind of industry for every body and not just target westren tourists only. Even the werstern pedophile, they are willing to pay for having sex with the children. Even this act is criminal offense but they are still much better than cambodian government and normal local peolpe who never care about the children and leave them live in poverty. If cambodian pedophiles exist, I think they are much worse than westarn pedophile and western sex tourists and trust me, cambodian prostitutes like western tourists better than local cambodian clients. why that ?? you can ask the sluts yourself.
