The concept of three sexes is ancient in Thailand. Northern Thailand creation tales say that in the beginning, a man and woman had three children: a male, a female, and a third sex. This third sex is considered by many Thai to be a ladyboy. The belief is that ladyboys had affairs with many women in their past lives. Estimates put the number of ladyboys in Thailand at around 180,000 individuals.
