George (69) is retired banker originally from Michigan in the United States.
He moved to live a more relaxed life in exotic Thailand more than three years ago.
Johnny is similar to a retired elderly white man living in retirement in Thailand who has boasted to have slept with over 4,000 women!
But still, many of the wealthier expats in Thailand are actually Americans.Some of the man's friends were unanimous in the view that there is no need to bring foreign women to Thailand.It would be, as one expat put it; 'like taking a sandwich to a banquet.' A culture has developed among many expats in Thailand that having sexual relations with sex workers or prostitutes is not something to be ashamed of and is openly admitted and discussed.'Since the 1970's, when the sex scene in Thailand started making headlines on the international stage, Bangkok and Thailand has been labeled with a bit of a reputation.Now with a growing wave of expats appearing in Thailand, with the advent of cheaper flights and the global village, everyone knows a relative, cousin or friend whose second home is Thailand.' Johnny Cornell revels in his new life in Thailand.A lower but not inconsequential figure is one suggesting that 5.20% of Australians have taken the same option, many of whom make the short flight to Thailand for an alternative place to live.British men comprise the largest number of expats living in Thailand; nearly double that of their US counterparts.'Look I'm well past my prime, I could be one of those love hungry suckers who don't have chance in a pickup bar in New York or LA, wherever.I could spend all my waking hours at the gym and blow all my money on clothes and entertainment. Here, who's the man everyday of the week, it's as simple as that,' says Johnny from New York.What is also true is that there is a culture of sexual freedom in Thailand that is heightened for expat men from western countries,' says James Morris.Meanwhile the American woman decided to conduct her own research on the sex lives of foreign expats in Chiang Mai, considered by many to be a bit more reserved, the cultural and upmarket location for expats living in Thailand.
