Behind the Glittering Lights of Bordellos and Brothels: The Philippines
Under the smoke of the active volcano Pinatubo, just a hundred miles north of Manila, Thomas Clarion travels to American bases Clark and Subic where the towns of Angeles and Olongopo cater to the recreational needs of American servicemen. Since the eruption of the volcano, both bases were converted to either airports or trade zones. What remains in different areas are some bordellos which cater to tourists. Thomas Clarion leads you into the dynamics of bordello life—go-go dancing, private show performances and prostitution. He also takes you into the social background of the women and the behavior of the servicemen. This kind of prostitution is organized by local and national politicians. Thomas Clarion delves into the culture clash and the expectations from both the soldiers and the women that serve them.
El vendedor asume toda la responsabilidad de esta entrada.
Thomas Clarion studies psychology and anthropology but his curious nature made him a journalist instead. He worked in the field for over 20 years covering the 'behind' the news interest. He wanted to fathom what actually made the news or what never reached the headlines. The intricacy of networks related to grand scale prostitution became his topic for a while with the organized Rest and Recreation as prominent example of neo-colonial attitude.
