Reading men's diaries: a discursive analysis of posts on the World Sex Guide

McLean, Jillian L. Woloshyn 16 January 2009 (has links)
This study focuses on one source of sex tourism diaries: posts on the World Sex Guide written about tourists who had sex while in Latin America. My interest is in exploring how posters on the World Sex Guide make sense of their involvement in sex tourism. Starting from the premise that the diaries constitute a forum in which a hegemonic masculinity is created and perpetuated I ask: what types of relations are valued and reproduced by the posters? How do the tourists construct the women whose services they seek? What do their narratives reveal about their own sense of selfhood in the process? I situate the diaries as pornographic representations or rhetorical strategies that are constituted by their context, interpretations, and inscriptions. I then undertake a discursive analysis to reveal their purpose and implications. In particular, I argue that the performances posted on the World Sex Guide reinforce lines of gender, race, economics, status, nationality, and ethnicity in a way that bolsters Western hegemonic masculinities, the implications of which have import not only in online settings but offline as well.

Exploring the Minds of Sex Tourists: The Psychological Motivation of Liminal People

Tepanon, Yodmanee 28 April 2006 (has links)
Sex tourism is one of the world's most controversial industries. While it generates tremendous revenue to the sex tourism destinations, the industry has been condemned as the two main reasons trafficking of women and children exist. Despite this, little research has examined the motivation of sex tourists. The purpose of this study is to develop an understanding of the sex tourism phenomenon and, more specifically, motivation of tourists. This study is exploratory and qualitative in nature. Two key propositions are addressed (1) The person's level of perceived modernity relates to the perceived level of personal needs; and (2) The person's level of perceived personal needs relates to the person's desire of travel for sexual participation. A mixture of qualitative methods was utilized. The data was collected using semi-structured personal interviews with thirty-three male sex tourists who traveled to Pattaya, Thailand in 2005. The transcribed data was constantly compared and the interviews revealed four substantial themes with eight subsequent categories. It was discovered that sex tourists were pushed by two main motivational drives: physical and psychological needs which came together as personal needs. Physical needs consisted of "physical problems" and "unmet sexual needs." The psychological problems included "hedonistic drive" and "modernity." The physical gains (tangible attributes) and psychological gains (sense of belonging, freedom and excitement, and power reestablishment) attracted sex tourists to the sex tourism destinations. Therefore, modernity, one of three constructs in this study, was also supported as an important factor which indirectly affected the motivation of the sex tourists. The last chapter presents the study contribution, implementation, and suggestions for future research. For knowledge contribution to the academic field, this present study reinforces the reliability of Iso-Ahola's (1982) escaping-seeking motivation model. It provides both academic and tourism practitioners a better idea of what sex tourist motivational factors are. The knowledge of sex tourist motivation can assist tourism practitioners at the sex tourism destinations to improve positioning their destinations in the world tourism market. For the tourism academics, this study offers an exploratory ground for future research to build on both qualitatively and quantitatively in order to form a more rigorous sex tourist motivation model. / Ph.

Public Opinion, Press Coverage and the Pempho Banda Case: Contesting Sex Work Criminalization in Malawi's Developing Tourism Sector

Kachipande, Sitingawawo Diana 09 July 2019 (has links)
When police arrested nineteen women in Dedza, Malawi hospitality locations in 2016, it was under the guise of the living on the earnings of prostitution laws. The women appealed and won their case, with the ruling judge noting that Malawian women are free to patronize any hospitality facilities or bars without fear of being arrested. The case, The Republic v. Pempho Banda and 18 Others, sparked a national debate over the social and legal status of sex workers in the southern African country. It also brought to light that efforts to stimulate tourism had inadvertently boosted the country's sex work industry. To move away from a reliance on agriculture and bolster socio-economic growth and its foreign exchange earnings, the country is positioning itself to gain a greater market share of visitors. However, as in many tourist destinations, the promise of sex attracts tourists, and sex is increasingly becoming a central offering of Malawi's tourism industry. Yet, Malawian sex workers continue to occupy a social status in which they are marginalized or mistreated by the general public and criminal justice system. This provides apt conditions for continued and increased human rights abuse against sex workers. This research explores the events, legal environment, media coverage, and public opinion surrounding this case and its relation to the tourism industry. The data is from interviews with actors in the criminal justice system, documents and an analysis of online media about the Pempho Banda et al. case. My dissertation highlights the complexities and contradictions surrounding sex work in Malawi. In doing so, I hope to intervene in the national debate surrounding sex workers so as to facilitate public opinions and policies that are more sex worker friendly and protective of their human rights. / Doctor of Philosophy

Turister som sexköpare : En etnografisk studie av interaktionen mellan turister och sexindustrin i Thailand / Tourists as sex buyers : An ethnographic study of the interaction between tourists and the sex industry in Thailand

Hellstrand, Jens January 2015 (has links)
The aim of this study is to investigate how it is possible that tourists who are not actively seeking child prostitutes still account for the majority of child sex tourists. The study includes tourists, locals, people working in the sex industry and staff from Swedish embassy and ECPAT international in Bangkok. The study was conducted with a qualitative approach and an ethnographic method, using field observations and interviews to collect the empirical data. The data has then been categorized in to different themes and analyzed using previous research on the subject. Hirschis theory of social bonds was then used to further interpret the results. The results of this study show that the tourists in Thailand, who are not seeking out child prostitutes, will most likely come in contact with them anyway. This will happen because of the availability to the vast sex industry and the fact that the sex industry markets itself by offering youthful prostitutes. The tourists will have weaker social bonds because they have left their normal social surrounding but depending on how weak these social bonds are the tourists may or may not experiment with buying sex. In combination with that about 25 percent of the prostitutes are under the age of 18, this may lead to that some of the tourists will sexually abuse children even if they were not seeking them out.

Turistų kelionės patirtys: Lietuvos, kaip sekso turizmo šalies, vertinimo analizė / Tourists’ journey experiences: analysis of Lithuania as destination for sex tourism

Bereišytė, Neringa 26 August 2008 (has links)
Sekso turizmas - kelionė į svečią šalį, kurios metu užmezgami seksualiniai santykiai su lankomos šalies gyventoju yra pagrindinis/dalinis kelionės tikslas ar netikėtai atsiradusi galimybė, kuria pasinaudojama. Sekso turizmu vadinama globalizacijos sekoje naujai iškilusi ir sparčiai besiplečianti turizmo atšaka. Jei anksčiau seksualinių santykių svečiose šalyse ieškantys turistai savo kelionių kryptimis rinkdavosi Azijos ar Lotynų Amerikos šalis, tai šiandieniniame turizmo kontekste sekso turistų kelionių keliai driekiasi per visus pasaulio kontinentus, apimdami įvairias pasaulio šalis. Darbe pristatomo tyrimo tikslas yra ištirti Lietuvoje viešinčių svečių šalių turistų patirtis, jų požiūrį į Lietuvą, kaip sekso turizmui patrauklią šalį. / Sex tourism is defined as tourism that involves sexual relations between tourists and locals. Some tourists travel with the specific intention of participating in sexual activity, for others it is not anticipated. It is a vast and growing global phenomenon. If earlier Asia and Latin America were the most popular destinations for sex tourism, now such tours spread all over the world. The aim of the paper is to analyze tourists’ journey experiences: what tourists think about Lithuania, do they see Lithuania as destination for sex tourism.

Selling Masculinity and Profiting from Marginality: Sex Work and Tourism in a Jamaican Resort Town

Johnson, Lauren C. 01 January 2012 (has links)
This ethnography explores the practice of sex tourism in Negril, Jamaica, and its sociocultural, economic, and health impacts on the popular tourist destination. Transactional sex with female tourists has become a popular income generator for some young Caribbean males who are excluded from formal employment in the region's leading industry. Like other resort locales, Negril draws both men and women from various parts of the country who choose to engage in sex work in order to benefit from the tourist dollars spent in Jamaica's third most popular resort area. Through the analysis of observations, interviews with residents, tourists, government officials, and health practitioners, as well as life histories of men involved in sex tourism, this study seeks to contribute to current literature on the practice and reveal its impact on the people of this particular locale. Additionally, relevant health data is utilized to examine the connection between sexual health and sex tourism locally, and to offer recommendations for effectively targeting male sex workers through risk reduction programs. This research takes a political economy perspective and applies relevant theoretical contributions from the anthropology of tourism, Caribbean gender theory, and gender performativity.
