O-Man! Transvestites, women warned against sex trade in Mideast

Via: The Nation

Panida Somao said the laws in Oman were very strict and only men were allowed to work at massage parlours for male customers.

“But some Thai transvestites have exploited these laws and also offer sexual services,” she said, adding that many of these men came to Oman before undergoing the sex-change operation.

“Many of them work in Oman to earn enough money to finance this operation,” Panida said. “Those who have already undergone the sex-change operation want to save money for cosmetic surgery so they can enter beauty pageants.”

She said a Thai transvestite usually charged Bt2,000 to Bt5,000  ($65 – $156 USD) per HOUR for services in Oman, but this comes with huge risks.

“When they get sexually transmitted diseases, they can’t go see a doctor because the society here is not open about this,” (yeah, you think?)  Panida explained.

She added that last year, two Thai transvestites had to seek help from the embassy because they needed urgent medical attention.
