Editorial Reviews

Even as I worked on this project I didn't know if it was real or not. But if you ask me about it, I will deny it all... Mixing genres like most people mix drinks, the "Last Temptation in Thailand" is a reality based lie wrapped in a philosopher's illusion of truth. The Buddha said desire causes pain, but I went to Thailand anyway. My story begins on the road to Bangkok. It ends hot on a cold trail to nowhere - a six month odyssey through ancient temples, whore-bars and even a brush with love. The open road called, I had no choice, I had to go. The Buddha headed out on the open road over 2500 ago years to face his final temptation under the Bodhi tree. When the gods sent down the most beautiful goddess in the heavens to tempt his mortal soul the accounts read, "He almost wavered, but then he wavered not". Me? I waver with even the slightest hint of a comely bargirl nearby. Thailand is a place where not only are the footsteps of the Buddha still echoing in the sands of time, but where the women are free and the men don't mind paying the price. Every desire has it's price, though, as I end up paying for love like most men pay for a cold beer and find the whole thing kind of liberating. So when love finally knocks on my door I know it's time to go, lest I pay the ultimate price... freedom is a hell of thing to lose to any woman's charms. Finally, hearing echoes of the Buddha's ancient call to moksha or liberation, I hop aboard a boat to nowhere sailing through the beatific seas of Thailand. Hot on a cold trail, I hear rumors that the illusive Buddha was last seen somewhere in a bar down south... I had no choice, I had to go.

I couldn't believe that a video could capture the action me and my friends have been enjoying in Thailand for years, but the "Last Temptation in Thailand" was just like being there! The guy travels all over Thailand in a kind of sex odyssey and then ties it altogether with a Sex in the City kind of narrative. If you can't go to Thailand or are thinking about going, get this tape and see what you're missing! Absolutely the best show on Thailand I've ever seen!

This film will not appeal to everyone. You may need at least a passing interest in the subject matter to enjoy it. I found the DVD to be an insightful and interesting look at the relationship between Thai women and Western males.
There are abundant images of Thai beauties and the vibrant nightlife, filmed mainly in Bangkok. The film goes deeper however and gives the viewer insight into the buddhist views and approach to life typical of Thais. I found these views refreshing and share much of the filmakers philosophy on life and love.
Highly recommended and thoroughly enjoyable!

I thought this DVD was very good. It showed some of the cities and country side of Thailand as well as some of the adult entertainment establishments. It had several interviews with some of the girls which I found to be informative. I would recommend this DVD to anyone interested in the adult entertainment business in Thailand.

Now some 5 years since I first viewed this video - most of those years spent in Thailand (2 years) and the Philippines (3 years) - and I consider this an excellent introduction to Asian life - and particularly the girls that travelling boys meet there.
Yes, sometimes Best goes over-the-top and indulges a little too much in slavering over the the girls' beauty. That is inevitable given their charms.
But he also raises fundamental questions that are likely to dog many travellers, and gives hints as to the answers without ever actually solving the problems.
As his friend Buddha might say: "No can solve them, you can only live them."

Very entertaining video. The author obviously had a great time in Thailand. It is nice to see how he juxtaposes the Thailand experience with Buddhism. I know very little about Buddhism, so that part was very interesting to me.

This documentary will be of value to two types of people: men looking for shallow sophistry to justify their sex tourism and people interested in how sex tourists delude themselves. As the creator of this documentary is a happy customer of the sex trade, any semblance of unbiased presentation is lost. The creator of this documentary claims an interest in truth. It is, however, impossible for a paying customer to interview a prostitute and expect to hear this truth. The prostitutes consistently tell him that they prefer middle-aged to old foreigners, that they enjoy their work, and that they dislike Thai men. They are wily enough to know that these are the exact answers that he wants to hear.

The excuses he and his fellow johns deceive themselves with are pathetic. They argue, with all of the inadequacy of their collective losership, that paying a Thai prostitute directly for sex is exactly the same as paying for dinner and a movie in the West with the indirect expectation of sexual favours afterward. These consistently paunchy, pale, and/or awkward-looking men are so lost in their own sexual appetites that they forget that a date is not a transaction in hope of sexual returns, but an embarking of two people in a relationship. Paying a prostitute for sex in Thailand is exactly the same as paying a prostitute for sex in North America, only the small capital that these men have is valued far more in Thailand. He and his fellow sex tourists also seem to believe that there is something magical in their whiteness that makes them desirable to Thai women. The only magic happening here is capitalism in its most base and ugly manifestation.

But the truth is not only lost in what he chooses to present, but in what he chooses to ignore.

Life the way it was supposed to be before they screwed it all up! A road trip through Thailand that every man should take before he kicks the bucket. Put this one on your bucket list before it's too late.

This flick was awesome. Lots of disease ridden thai chicks on this movie. The guy goes for religious enlightenment but, instead goes into the natural way of man.
