Water Festival 10-12 November 2019

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.

Anyway, I don't understand this half a million condom thing, is this a water festival or a giant shagfest, who uses all these condoms, is it the locals suddenly go super randy or aimed at barangs. And where do all the girls come from ???.
Iv never really needed an excuse such as a water festival so it's a genuine question for those who have been here a while !!!!

Maybe the partymood leads to a lot of encounters that we would call " one night stands " in the west. Not really sure if that is possible in the otherwise still conservative society.

I think you are right. A bit like carnival, all traditional rules are suspended/slackened for a time. It would be interesting to see if the birth rates go up nine months later.
