Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

A research on sex tourism with an emphasis on the men. Why do hundreds of thousands of men flock to Costa Rica to pay for sex and to fall in love with these same sex workers? The answer is not simple and this book is the best attempt at its comprehension. Schifter tells us is not sex what is sought after and that monguering (liking paid sex) is not without morals or ethics. Nevertheless, is it moral? Schifter will surprise you. So it will his use of postmodern theory to explain gender and seduction.
