Thai MP aims to ‘stimulate’ economy with sex industry legalisation

Thai MP aims to ‘stimulate’ economy with sex industry legalisationLegacy

A Move Forward Party (MFP) MP today announced plans on social media to legalise professions related to the pornography and sex toy industries in Thailand by revising the Criminal Law of Thailand. The revision draft is expected to be proposed during Parliament today, July 10.

The MFP MP, Taopiphop Limjittrakorn, shared his plan to legalise professions related to porn and sex toys on his Twitter account today.

“Today, the bill #UnlockPornSexToy will be proposed in the Parliament session. Please watch to see if it will be passed or not. Let’s see if Thailand stops being bullsh*t in the Parliament.”

Many Thai Twitter users expressed their opinions under the post. Some agreed and cheered Taopiphop on while others opposed his idea, saying it would damage Thailand’s beautiful culture and traditions. Others agreed with Taopiphop but doubted the bill would ever be approved in Thailand.

Taopiphop included the entire draft of the bill in his post, allowing his followers to see more details. According to the document, Taopiphop and his team aims to amend Section 287 of the Criminal Law, which states that producing, possessing, importing, exporting, or distributing indecent documents, paintings, publications, pictures, advertisements, photos, films, voice records, or other materials can result in imprisonment of up to three years, a fine of up to 60,000 baht, or both.

This revision would allow Thai sex content creators to work in the industries legally. However, those working in the pornography industry must be at least 20 years old and must not include violent actions in their content.

The document suggests that banning people from working in this industry violates their rights and freedom to choose a profession or type of work, according to Section 40 of the Thai Constitution. The proposed amendment is also expected to benefit the Thai economy.

In addition to the pornography legalisation, another MFP MP, Wiroj Lakkhanaadisorn, will also propose the draft of the Fiscal Discipline Act in the parliamentary session, aiming mainly to make military spending more transparent.
