A house of love in a Akha village – Laos

A house of love in a Akha village – Laos

Akha people have a special tradition : young people, boys and girls, can have free sex with anyone they want. In the middle of the Akha village, there is this hut with 2 beds (yes, 2 beds!) where teenagers go at night and have sex. Once they have found the good lover, they can tell their families and the wedding takes place. If the girl is pregnant by accident, the boy has to marry her. i still do not understand how they can know who is the father as sexuality is so free…I’ve read that in some Philipino tribes, there is the same kind of tradition.
The problem nowadays is AIDS as those tribes access the big towns for trading and men can have sex with prostitutes…
