Tourists arriving on Thailand`s southern resort island of Pha-ngan are to be issued with stickers stating the island`s ban on `free sex`, following government concern over visitors having sexual intercourse in public places.

The decision follows pleas by Khon Kaen Senator Rabiabrat Pongpanit to prevent tourists on the island having sex in public after the island`s notorious Full Moon parties.

Today Mr. Pramoth Supyen, Director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT)`s Southern Office Region 5, warned that although it would be difficult to ban the parties, which were an important source of revenue for the island, the police would put a halt to them if they were alerted to tourists having sex in public places.

Noting that tourists should be aware that Thailand is not a place to have public sexual intercourse, he warned that tourists having free sex could be arrested.

The TAT will inform tourists that public sex is banned under the Thai law by issuing stickers and leaflets to residents of the island`s hotels and guesthouses outlining the legal position.
