The other aspect is placing external constraints on the sex-tourist trade,
which I assume is the source of this problem (or is there a large internal
market?). I was recently in Australia, and there is a lot of discussion
there on how those who go to Thailand for what would be considered
a criminal activity in their own countries, particularly having sex with
minors, might be held criminally responsible.
