Emotion and affection in public - or lack thereof

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

Lolzz, my suggestion, you should get a barang boyfriend, i guess he doesn't mind to give you a goodbye kiss. BTW, young people don't usually hang out on the forum. :stir:

If you know a lot, know enough to make them respect you, if you are stupid, be stupid enough so they can pity you.

My khmer missus hugs and kisses her children but I think that this is unusual. I have never seen families so undemonstrative, I find it very unsettling. What the fuck is wrong with these people?

I once had a girlfriend who had different rules/behavior for public affection depending on whether other Khmers were around. If only foreigners could see us it was OK

This also probably explains why girls show no emotion when having a orgasm. I do miss having a girl that screams so loud that the neighbours can hear when she has her big O
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
