Female Sex Tourism

Posted by Mrityunjay on June 1, 2010

Ever heard of ‘R&R’? No, it does not signify ‘Rest and Relaxation’. It refers to ‘Rent a Rasta’. Directed by J. Michael Seyfert, ‘Rent a Rasta’ is an eye-opening depiction of female sex tourism in Caribbean Islands. Though, the movie chronicles the seductive ways of black locals and white-skinned Women in Jamaica, it very much represents a barely acknowledged form of sex tourism prevalent in other beach heavens also like Indonesia, Goa, Senegal, Jordan and certain parts of Africa. No less than 80,000 females from wealthy Western countries descend on Jamaica every year to satisfy their carnal desires. Local guys offering sex are termed as ‘beach boys’. Seeing sex to female tourists is a surging global phenomenon and if by any chance you get an opportunity to rent or download ‘Rent a Rasta’, you will be introduced to a new form of exploitation where it’s women who rule the roost.

The conventional wisdom has given way to empowerment witnessed by middle-aged, white-skinned women who otherwise feel ignored and unattractive. Native blacks offer their ‘services’ in lieu of money, electronic items, designer clothes and other material items. It is a thriving business that in some way reflects the declining social culture and weakening family structure in Caribbean. Women get their thrill when the beach boys pay their attention, find them beautiful and express their desire to satisfy them in every possible way. For most of these middle-aged and overweight spinsters, it is like discovering the gateways of a hedonistic world. They are not wanted by white men and because of social taboo, they can’t date black men so the only way out is to travel all the way to remote islands and seek uncomplicated sexual favours.

However, there is a silent and strict understanding between both parties and that is of keeping the liaison a complete secret. Quite a few documentaries have been made on this issue but it is hard to find them because of controversies surrounding these videos. Most of the beach boys are victim of relentless poverty and female sex tourism gives them a wonderful opportunity to make some fast bucks. For women, this is almost like a way to settle the score right with men in west who find these sexually-starved women unattractive.

These beach boys in Jamaica are also called ‘Rastatutes’ whereas women are termed ‘milk bottles’ because of their white skin. Women don’t have the option of visiting brothels and ‘Rent a Rasta’ offers them a chance to satiate their desires. Though, things might appear interesting to some and liberating to others, but ironically it also displays a continual blueprint of unreserved suppression and economic disparity of the islanders. In a way, it is a form of exploitation but of different form. So, if people have any false notions about Rent a Rasta being a risk-free pleasure ride of corneous white women gone wild, then it’s time to get it straight. It is more about a mushrooming inclination which is destroying free-flowing and exotic Caribbean culture and family structure.

    Sounds interesting, but where did you get to see it from? Let me know the source 🙂

    • Saw half of it sometime back. It was available on Torrent/rapidshare but now when I checked, its all gone! Strange! There were few other documentaries also on same theme but all of them are vanished! Looks like Rastatutes are on prowl..:P
