In this article we discuss the dangers, the risks, and the obvious caution you should be demonstrating when having sex with ladyboys (and particularly those who work in the sex industry or are sexually promiscuous).
Are sexually-transmitted diseases and AIDS prevalent in the Ladyboy community?
Exact numbers are hard to pin down, and studies on this subject are not very common, but one has to assume that disease and HIV are fairly common amongst the ladyboy population in well-known tourist locations such as Pattaya, Bangkok, Phuket and Angeles City, especially if the ladyboys work in the sex trade. Having sex with multiple men in any given month, sometimes as many as 20 or 30 different customers, makes this a very risky trade to be involved in and their chances of acquiring a disease goes up exponentially.
Do most ladyboys use protection while having sex?
From our experience living in Thailand and from discussions we have had with other westerners, we can conclude that most sex workers in the ladyboy scene do insist on their customers wearing condoms, especially when anal sex is involved. But this is not a given; we have heard many stories of men penetrating their ladyboy lover [or being penetrated themselves] without any protection, with the ladyboy oftentimes not attempting to stop them. This is very risky behavior indeed, and we strongly discourage it. It’s basically the same as having sex with the last 40 or 50 men she has been with.
Which type of diseases are prevalent?
At the low end of the spectrum, you have things such as lice, sometimes called crabs, transmitted between yourself and your lover when your pubic hairs intermingle; this can easily be done away with by using a simple cream prescribed by a doctor. Moving up from there, you could possibly get; chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, herpes and even HIV. While the first three can all be treated, you will go have some painful days leading up to treatment, as well as an embarrassing chat with your doctor. Depending upon where you live, you may also have to register with local officials who keep a tab on such things. Herpes has no known cure, and while medication can keep the prevalence of breakouts down to a minimum, at the moment it is still something you will keep with you for life. HIV, as we all well know, has no known cure and could possibly lead to a death sentence down the road.
Protection; the only solution.
While many of us do not like wearing condoms and find them uncomfortable, this is a necessary pre-condition to having sex with ladyboys in the third world. This is especially true when having anal sex, either giving or receiving, and also should apply when accepting or giving sperm with your lover. While it has been proven that kissing is safe virtually 100% of the time, the exception being if your partner has an open sore or a cut within her mouth, accepting sperm in your mouth from a ladyboy could be extremely dangerous and could lead to many of the diseases mentioned above. Bottom line; be careful, be smart, always use condoms during anal sex, and be advised not to accept sperm into your mouth unless you have known your partner for a very long time and trust her implicitly.
