Sex tourists in Thailand get 'licked' by the pros Asahi Geino 1/23 By Takeshi Ito
The man was all set for a good time.
In front of him was a beautiful woman with only a bath towel covering her dark,slender figure.
As he slowly peeled the towel off her body,shapely breasts came into view.
Unable to hold off any longer,the man took one of her pink nipples in his mouth.
To his bewilderment,the nipple tasted bitter.But the man was too aroused.
Her smooth skin and gorgeous curves made it easy to ignore the odd taste.
Over the moon with joy,the man continued to fondle her...until he noticed something was wrong 10 minutes later.
Overwhelmed by drowsiness,the man backed off and closed his eyes.
Soon, he began to snore on top of the naked woman.
When he finally woke up 12 hours later,the beautiful woman had vanished - with all his cash and valu-ables...
Asahi Geino warns male readers contemplating a trip to Thailand that they too could suffer the same embarrassment the poor fellow experienced.
In a three-page report,the magazine reminds its raunchy readers that many Thai prostitutes use sleeping drugs to avoid sex and to strip stupid foreigners of their valuables.
According to the magazine,prostitutes who coat their nipples with a sleep-ing drug came to light earlier this month when police in Pattaya,Thailand, nabbed five women on charges of drug use and robbery.
Under questioning, they told police that about 20 members of their prostitution ring were using "Upjohn 27" and other drugs to put their clients to sleep in order to steal their money and belongings.
These women,notes Asahi Geino,picked up prospects at one of some 1,500"beer bars" in Pattaya which are frequented by both local prostitutes and foreign men.
Most of their clients are middle-aged men from the United States, Germany,Australia and Japan.
"Those women use three methods to put their targets to sleep," a local inves-tigative source informs Asahi Geino.
"The first method is to lace alcoholic beverages with a drug and make their john drink a large quantity of the brew.
When the target won't drink,the women rub the drug around their lips.
Or they hide a tablet beneath their tongue and slide it deep into their client's mouth when they kiss.
The third method is to coat their nipples with a drug and let the man suck them.
We hear that many prostitutes use the three methods in care-fully arranged combinations."
Freelance journalist Akira Hinako tells Asahi Geino that Upjohn 27 can trigger cardiac paralysis when it is consumed with alcohol or other drugs.
According to the magazine,more than 40 foreign men died in Pattaya after inviting prostitutes into their hotel rooms during the past 12 months.
The recently arrested five hookers are only the tip of the iceberg.
Asahi Geino points out.
"Middle-class hotels in Pattaya where many Japanese stay cannot be called safe," a Japanese travel agent in Bangkok explains.
"High-class hotels ask Thai women to show identification when they enter the hotel with a foreign man.
But lower-ranked hotels conduct no checks whatsoever."
The magazine closes by saying that over-trusting Japanese men who vaca-tion in Thailand must exercise extreme caution against all forms of sweet traps from the moment they step out of the airport building.
If they don't asserts Asahi Geino,they may gulp down a laced welcome drink and lose conscious-ness,their cash and passport on the way to their first hotel.(TI)
