    PHNOM PENH, Cambodia - A Cambodian man has been stabbed by a sex worker in a brawl, after he refused her request to wear a condom, police said Friday. Suon Da, 25, was knifed twice in the abdominal area by Sa Rida, a 24-year-old sex worker, during the fight at a brothel in Battambang province Wednesday, said Koam Roeuy, a deputy police chief from the area.

    Koam Roeuy said Suon Da had paid Sa Rida $1.20 to have sex with her. But after Suon Da repeatedly refused to wear a condom, Sa Rida gave up and left the room.

    Suon Da chased after her, demanding his money back and slapping the woman, Koam Roeuy said. Sa Rida responded by stabbing Suon Da in the stomach, he said.

    "The woman was trying to prevent the transmission of diseases such as HIV," Koam Roeuy said. "But now it will be up to the court to decide her fate after she inflicted injuries on another person."

    Sa Rida remains in police custody pending possible charges against her. Suon Da is being treated at a hospital in Battambang province, about 155 miles northwest of the capital Phnom Penh.

    Cambodia has an HIV infection rate of 1.9 percent for people aged 15-49, among the highest in Southeast Asia.

    Comprehensive education campaigns, including widespread condom use in brothels, has helped reduce the infection rate from 3 percent in 1997, according to the Cambodian government.

    I think she should have given him back his $1.20. Then if he persisted in his aggressive behavior stabbing might be seen as an appropriate response.

    Then again if one wanted to be uberliberal you could say that sex without a condom in Cambodia is akin to assault with a deadly weapon.:wink:

    Absolutely.

    If they don't like it they can go home to their wife or their palm.
    For any sex worker this is basic occupational health and safety.

    The stabbing was VERY excessive. The only reason I say it makes sense was if she asked him to wear the condom, he said no and tried to force himself inside her, unprotected. Suddenly we get into the topic of rape and self defense.

    Condoms should be worn. Regardless. End of story.

    Other forces armed him, that was merely a trigger.

    And I reckon they should protect themselves. Even though condom failure will occur with such high traffic of incompetance, an occasional chance at dying might be superior than constant chances.

    And as for the consumer? Heck, unless he is dying and wants to kill others, he should really be the one worried.



    But on a lighter note, there are even pros here that offer for coins.

    The article says he chased her and started slapping her around.

    He's lucky he's still alive.

    And, I assume the thread title is rhetorical. It doesn't matter if all Johns don't want to wear one...she wanted him to and he refused. Her body, her right.

    (She probably should have just given him his money back, tho.)

    In reply specifically to the title of the thread:

    Uh, yes. Every single time.
