Middle-aged half-naked joggers in Pattaya spark outrage on social media
A series of photos appeared on social media of two middle-aged foreigners running down Jomtien’s beach road wearing nothing more than tight speedos, the photos caused a stir in the Thai community, with many wondering if this is allowed.
The photos, which have been floating around the Thai internet since Sunday, show two white men between the ages of 50 and 60 jogging along Pattaya’s Jomtien Beach Road in broad daylight in only blue speedos and sneakers.
One internet user pointed out that if it were a Thai person, he would be immediately charged with public indecency. Many others also criticized the local officials for being too lenient with foreigners and letting them break the laws.
Article 388 of the Criminal Code says that anyone who commits a disgraceful act in public by indecent exposure or other act of obscenity can be fined up to 5,000 baht.
