Pattaya, the 17th of March 2010 [PDN]: At approximately 6:30am on Thursday, reporters were informed of a Russian couple that had been caught fornicating on the Jomtien Beach at the Dongtan Curve near the local police station.
Local reporters arrived at the scene, following an anonymous tipoff, photographing the couple in the midst of sexual intercourse. The pair seemed completely unaware or unashamed that an audience was gathering nearby, proceeding to finish their inappropriate antics and leaving the scene before police arrived to arrest them.
Note: Insufficient or ineffective punishment for public indecency in Pattaya has significantly contributed to an increase in this type of act, notably from the Russian contingent visiting or living in the region. The attractive location and pleasant atmosphere created by the sunrise and morning peace along the beach, likely attracts Russian couples who otherwise do not get the opportunity to consider such acts in their home country.
Two Russian couples have been arrested and charged with public indecency after being discovered having sex on Jomtien Beach whilst in full view of a crowd of onlookers.
