While we provide Machiavellian advice on how and where to have the most and the best sexual relationships in Asia, the site is neither pornographic, nor a prostitution guide.
"Machiavellian" in this contest means honest. Honest to the extent that we analyze the situation in a materialistic, down-to-earth, manner, not afraid to state things which to express is politically not correct.
To advise that Phnom Penh is an easy destination for Western men who seek sexual relationships with local women because the country is so poor and the women are generally willing to exchange sexual services, or general love, for economic support, may be politically not correct. And so is the advice given to older men of Western European or North American origin, that if you cannot have a young girlfriend where you currently live, you can always go to Cambodia.
Whether the options are politically correct or not is not the perspective that is applied in a Machiavellian analysis. The only perspective that counts in a Machiavellian analysis is whether a strategy is effective or not.
But in as much as the current conditions in Western Europe and North America may not be conducive to optimize one’s own sexual experience, it is legitimate to have an interest in other parts of the world where the current conditions are better suited.
The fact that I, or we, aim to improve the sexual conditions in the societies we hail from doesn’t mean that our primary interest in life wouldn't be as much sexual satisfaction as we can manage in the world as it presents itself.
Asia's potential for truly rewarding sexual relationships is enormous, provided one avoids places that have been affected by too much tourism, commercial sex establishments, and the presence of pseudo-intellectuals who continue to view all Asians as tribal folks who need to be protected from the evils of modern Western ideas.
Asia is a fantastic sexual playing ground… for locals and even more so for Western visitors. Just take note of what TIME magazine in 2001 wrote on the topic:
"A continent of 3 billion human beings is getting sexy and kicking the guilt. You can thank satellite television and globalization, and don't forget to say a sincere hosanna to the Internet… There is, it seems, a chat room for anything and everyone. Spouses seeking greater satisfaction, singles who don't want to wait until marriage…"
"TIME has done … a survey on Asian sexual behavior. Thais like to be spanked-some 37% of men surveyed and 34% of women. Singaporean women initiate sex more than other Asian women. Virgins are an endangered Asian species almost everywhere except the Philippines, where 78% of the men say they want to marry one."
"In mainland China …, Shanghai radio sexologist Chen Kai-his business card features a pop-up penis-recently gave on-air advice to a housewife who wanted to know if it was safe to pleasure herself with a frozen cucumber. (Chen's tip: thaw it first.)"
"In backwater Phnom Penh, the ankle-length sarong is starting to get shorter, and sex educators say some 50% of high school boys are having sex with girlfriends, often in fast-sheet hotels charging $1 an hour…"
"I first had sex when I was 20," recalls Jiraporn Thepitak, a sexually active single woman in Bangkok. "When I go back to my home village, I see that girls are already having sex when they are 15 and 16. Before, everyone used to think sex was very important. Now they think it's for fun."
"Asia's sexual revolution is being driven by images from the West … and liberating new phenomena such as Internet chat rooms…"
"In South Korea, which has a seriously severe side, 32-year-old cyberstud Andy trolls the chat rooms to make assignations with single and married women. His success rate: about one a week. (Never on weekends, though, because that's when he meets, and sleeps with, his girlfriend.)"
This much from TIME magazine.
Obviously, no single mating strategy fits every man. However, practically every man can improve his sexual experience with the right advice.
