—————————————————————————————–

Despite the sensationalist descriptor used by the Daily News, BigBabyKenny.com was never a site about or promoting “sex tourism.” These sex tours, mainly organized for Chinese and Japanese men, seeking commercial sex were never mentioned, discussed, or promoted on BigBabyKenny.com.

Instead, BigBabyKenny.com was about discussing and photographically documenting marriage, dating, love, and sex in Thailand and Asia—The Thailand Girl Scene in BigBabyKenny.com speak.

Integral to the discussion was the relationship between love, sex, dating, money, wealth and social class in Thailand and Asia-a relationship much different than the norm in western  predominantly Judeo-Christian societies.

Thailand is a rigid class based society where the traditional paths average and disadvantaged western women use to advance economically and socially are blocked or unavailable. Marrying, dating, or becoming emotionally and/or sexually involved with foreigners is one the few open avenues to social and economic betterment for middle and lower class Thai women.

Thai women have a long tradition of finding better lives, happiness, and improved lifestyles marrying, boyfriending, and having consensual and, sometimes, commercial sex with foreigners and an equally long and parallel tradition of combining sex and the weak Thai legal system to scam money from foreign men. BigBabyKenny.com contained articles, advice, and uncensored discussion about all of these aspects of The Thailand Girl Scene plus articles and discussion of politics, economics, and Expat life in Thailand.

Included in the discussion were articles, photo journalism, and discussion of the intertwining of love, sex, and money in traditional Thai relationships and a view into the daily lives of everyday women in a society where culture and class keeps them down both economically and socially. Documented and discussed were the marriage customs and sex lives of affluent Thai men, e.g. the mistress market, the expectations (or lack thereof) of monogamy in Thailand and other non-Christian Asian societies, and the prospects and handicaps facing lower class Thai women trying to advance themselves through marriage, dating, and sex in a rigidly class based society.

The CSUN Asian American and Women’s studies departments claimed BigBabyKenny.com “perpetuates the cultural prostitution of women in Thailand” but I think they got it wrong.

Anyone reading BigBabyKenny.com, got an eye opening education about what it really means to be a woman in a country and culture where not only do most women start off life poor but where most of the normal paths to upward economic and social mobility are blocked by age old laws, customs, values, and government interference in the free market.

Although not intended to be an educational site, regular BigBabyKenny.com readers received the most accurate and comprehensive real life look at the nitty gritty details of Thai women’s lives available anywhere on the internet, or in mainline books, newspapers, and magazines—-and learned more about women’s issues in Asia than they get in a semester long women’s studies course at most universities.

BigBabyKenny.com readers also got an honest, no holds barred, uncensored, photographically documented, eye opening look into a non-western culture and way of life few will ever get to experience firsthand.  Read Sense and Sensibility for a look at women’s lives in Victorian England. Read BigBabyKenny.com for a look at women’s lives in poor Asian countries.

Plus the articles and discussion were hugely entertaining, engaging, and funny — which explained the sites growing popularity over time and, eventually, why BigBabyKenny.com came to the attention of the mainstream press.

What is truly sad is that external forces impinged on the university’s normally free market for ideas and opinions and led to the removal of the information, photography, and uncensored discussion of The Thailand Girl Scene from BigBabyKenny.com.

  2. Looter 64 says:

    The scandal came to my attention, I researched the facts and came to the conclusion that the web site was not
    intended to promote sex in Thailand, although some of the postings literary gave instructions as to how to get women
    there but not necessarily for sex toys. Borderline? hummm, I guess it depends on what your real intentions are by going over there.

    I’ve spent about 2 hours during the past day reading the various posts and comments on your website and come away feeling I’ve been assaulted by stupidity. The reviews are terrible, the comment threads are childish and horribly mismanaged and the website design is unremarkable.

    On the whole, your website at or near the bottom of useful information about Thailand. The comment threads are bursting at the seams with childish bantering and general stupidity. Your restaurant reviews are incredibly lacking in detail. Although the photos are good at showing how the food looks you do very little to describe how it actually tastes. Accuracy and details only gets worse from there. I find the majority of your posts are full of inaccuracies and generally at odds with what is found on other websites. While there are some readers who hail your posts as “insightful”, I come away thinking it is you making the supportive comments under other names when other resoundingly criticize your reports.

    In your section dedicated to BBK 1.0 I come away with the sense that the primary purpose of this website was to settle a score with a bar called “The Big Mango”. Judging from the comments and various posts, a score still not settled to this day. Further reading leads me to believe you’re jealous of Stickman and your second agenda is to discredit the Stickman, or as one reader commented, “you want to be Stickman”.

    Reviewing this blog and knowing what type of work you do for a living, I find it astounding that you’ve made such an effort to even the score. You show questionable character and judgement in some of the content you’ve published. Your actions, and the actions that you complacently allow, approve and promote others to take through the comments shows you are an immature and petty person.

    From your masthead, “No Hidden Agenda, No Censorship, No Bullshit.” to your BBK 1.0 to the various posts and comments, this website is a failure in so many aspects the best course of action you could take is scrap the hard drive and start fresh. Give the website a new look and perhaps you can build something that may be respected by readers that won’t further tarnish your reputation.

  14. Fun Stuff says:

    On the other hand Mr. Kenny’s after schoil activities have been under close inspection by the administration.

  15. Fun Stuff says:

    Can we say school now?

  16. Prufrack says:

    If a person has it in their mind they can get away with something, then stupidity usually follows….and so here is Ken’s blog. His ultimate contribution to mankind.

  17. Prufrack says:

    Take the example of inside job pulled of on 9/11b A terrible event that the IMF and their secret cabal pulled off to further the globalist group think agenda.

  18. Anotalog says:

    Wasn’t there a time when you said something about whores and letting the puss hunt begin?

    How do you defend THAT?

  19. Where's Waldo says:

    Do you think he cares? He obviously feels no moral responsibility otherwise he wouldn’t have put up this website.

  20. Friend of Fucktard says:

    He does care. Don’t you ken?

  21. Friend of Fucktard says:

    Hell Yes, he cares.

    The BAB got your back.

  27. Peanut gallery says:

    Kenny, tell us if your coworkers in academia still give you the cold shoulder because of this blog.

  28. Voice of Reason says:

    He well admit nothing, right Kenny?

    But everyone already knows you fucked yourself. that’s why your coworkers don’t socialize with you.

  29. Dr. Fukkinuts says:

    Oh Kenny, why don’t you defend yourself? At least man up to the sleazy things you’ve done.

  30. Silence. says:

    I think Kenny has finally learned the best thing for him to do is be qoiet so he can chase down underaged Esan girls on motorbikes in peace.

  31. Right Hand Man says:

    He’s had his hand slapped by his employer for continuing his posts and comments about the sex scene and the website is monitored. In summary, he hasn’t learned his lesson, he’s just afraid to comment.

  32. Jimmy Hendrix says:

    Now Kenny, we know you’re out there reading these comments each and every day and night.

    Tell the people the truth and quit hiding behind the keyboard.

  33. Jimmy Hendrix says:

    From your masthead, “No Hidden Agenda, No Censorship, No Bullshit.” to your BBK 1.0 to the various posts and comments, this website is a failure in so many aspects the best course of action you could take is scrap the hard drive and start fresh.
