Thailand: Tough On Underage Sex

Right.

Police in Bangkok have launched an operation to prevent teenagers from having sex on Valentine's Day.

A survey found one-in-four teens hoped to mark the day passionately but sex under the age of 18 is illegal in Thailand.

I did not know that. Really? Really?

Thailand is a mostly conservative country where public hand-holding or kissing are rare and alleged promiscuity among young people, especially girls, is a cause of moral panic.

You can google around to find reams of articles about the rampant child slavery and pedophile tourism in Thailand if you want. I did, and frankly I'm just pretty much sick of this fucking planet.
