    Thailand Fever - Book

    On G4's recommendation I have purchased a copy of Thailand Fever - A road map for Thai-Western relationships.

    The book is written in English and Thai for both parties to read.

    Have any BM's read this and if so what are your thoughts?. Also should I read before I go over (7 weeks) or should we read together whilst lounging on a beautiful Phuket beach (most probably in the rain 555)

    I was actually recommended it by Minder so just spreading the word. I would read it before you go and then leave the book with her so she can read it while you are gone. Why waste your time with her just reading....

    Could give me a chance to have a swim, and she will be busy reading and not get bored, as TG does not know how to swim. "inland girl" 555

    I thought it was good to out line the basics for you and her.

    I liked this last paragraph of a review of the Book

    At the end, despite its flaw, it is still a great book. If you think about marriage, get this book. If you want to understand the Thai paradigm better, get it. If you are married already, and want to understand your spouse better, get it. If you are a sex-tourist or an antisocial freak, get lost

    Very good call AM with you and if you are the later you have no interest in understanding the girl anyway.
    You can hear this as girls are discussed as meat in some places...nothing like sex with a unwilling participant who is smiling with mouth only through the whole process.....very satisfying 55555

    Aaaahhh... your questions are beginning to make more sense now... I predict you that when you see all the other TGs on offer... you're virtual TG may well be pushed down the queue...

    555 One is fantasy, one is reality, one is a 12 day f-fest, the other could be eternity, i've done one a few times (part-time mind you 555), this time I'm trying the other. What ever happens, happens, but I have a great back up plan 555, but hope it is not used.

    What is an ASF by the way?

    With this virtual girl... don't try and force it to happen because you feel like you have put a lot of work in. If you aren't attracted to her or something doesn't feel right... just end it... don't let it drag on for days... and end up not enjoying your trip.

    Read the first few chapters last night, no rocket science stuff there, so hoping the next read will get into the more in depth's of the multi cultural relationship side of things. I see a chapter on money coming up 555

    Am half way through the book now, and some interesting insight, a definite for TG to read as well.

    Nothing there yet to scare me 555, but am interested to hear other BM's slant on Dowry, Sin Sot and what they did, those that have got married, and what they will do those that are on the way to be married.

    All info appreciated.
