Beschreibung

Until recently, Romance tourism in developing countries is often examine from western perspectives. Thus, the book explored romance tourism from an African male's viewpoint and the motivations for black males' participation in romance tourism especially considering the traditional and cultural attitude of Africans towards sex and sexual relationships between young men and older women. The book shows that romance tourism is a very complex phenomenon and revealed the inherent power relations in romance tourism. It asserts that western female tourists employed racial, class and economic powers to exploit black males in the relationship. It also reveals that beach boys in Ghana are not economically empowered in their relationship with western female tourists in romance tourism. The book affirms that there are so many similarities between romance tourism and sex tourism than there are differences. The book also revealed that the desire for money and material advantage powerfully influenced black males' participation in romance tourism rather than the desire to migrate to the west.
