French daddy and his Thai rent boy

The French Cultural Minister Frederic Mitterrand has been in trouble owing to having written about his sexual experiences in Thailand. The book itself was published in 2005. Yet suddenly it has become the source of a huge uproar following the minister’s decision to defend Mr. Polanski. You will recall that the film maker was apprehended  in Switzerland in connection with the incident which took place in 1977. To my way of thinking, the guy should not have drawn unnecessary attention to himself when he has had such experiences in the Land of Smiles and especially when he has included his adventures in his “not totally autobiographical” book. More details of this story via the link.

According to my research, men in this part of the world have such sexual bizarre fantasies. Some are into strange things such as BDSM, Master and Slave or other sexual role plays and so on. The experiences depicted in the book coud simply be just wishful thinking. Many middle-aged western men like to enjoy the company of young men when they visit Thailand. Just because there may be a yawning gap between their ages does not mean that their relationship is not one of legally consenting adults; not unlike the liaisons between older western men and young Thai women. What he wrote in the book referring to his partners as “boys” might be just the sexual fantasy of “a sugar daddy and his toy boys”. However, if he did do anything that is not between consenting adults, he should be punished in accordance with the rule of law in his country.

People are very strange indeed….

    When in Rome do as Roman Polanski does!

    • Probably not in this case though.

      I assume that in terms of gay culture, the word ‘boy’ can be identified with young gay men aged around 20. There is even a free gay newspaper callled “Boyz” magazine. Strangely enough, straight men often refer to women in their 20s as girls; yet it becomes decadent when a gay man uses the same term about twenty-something men.

    จริงๆแล้ว ถ้าเขาคิดว่าทำผิด ก็คงไม่กล้าเขียนลงไปมั้งคะ เป็นไปได้ว่า ‘boy’ คงไม่ไช่หมายถึงเด็กชายจริงๆ

    เห็นด้วยว่าเดี๋ยวนี้คนทำอะไรแปลกๆเยอะจังค่ะ

  5. yes, a nice example of total hypocrisy from the French Minister of Culture. He claimed in his press conference to have been a “tourist” to Thailand but absolutely not a ‘Sex Tourist”. As the French Minister of Culture, one of the “great” cultural nations, he is, of course, completely opposed to “Sex Tourism”.

    As for the “boys” he bragged about having so much sex with, he now claims they were actually “men” more or less his own age, about 60 years old. As anyone who has visited Boyz Town Bangkok can tell you, there many thousands of elderly “Rent Grandfathers” available in every bar/disco/sauna……….

    Anyway, I thought such flagrant hypocrisy deserved a Bangkok Noir painting of “dear Frederic” in Bangkok which you can see at: http://bangkok-noir.blogspot.com/2009/10/frederic-mitterand-french-minister-of.html

    BTW here are some of the quotes from Frederic Mitterand’s book about his “stay” as a “non-Sex Tourist” in Bangkok:

    “I got into the habit of paying for boys. The profusion of young, very attractive and immediately available boys put me in a state of desire that I no longer needed to restrain or hide….All these rituals of the market for youths, the slave market excite me enormously.”

  7. I knew this news and I have to say I am a person who really get attractive by older men just like Ogata Ken. I had a difficult childhood and it makes me craving for a father figure man who can gives me love and tender care physically and mentally.
