Sex tourism refers to individuals traveling to other locations with the primary purpose of engaging in sexual activities. It often involves the exchange of money or goods for sexual services. There really isn’t anything wrong with that as long as the traveler pays heed to the dignity of the sex workers. The view of sex workers should be to give them their due respect. And travelers should shun any inkling of human trafficking or activities involving children in sex abuse. It is important to note that engaging in sex tourism can have serious consequences and is often associated with various legal and health risks.
Keeping this in mind and looking for the best sex tourism countries to consider, here are some options to put on the list:
Thailand has some cities where sex tourism is promoted indirectly. Those cities are teeming with sex workers, like Pattaya and the Bangkok Red Light Districts. In fact, Bangkok has been crowned as the most renowned sex capital of the world. Being true to its infamous abundance of sex tourism, it has been called a sex workers’ paradise.
There are ladies who are willing to barter their services for a traveler’s big bucks. This is so accurate that it is safe to say there is a sex worker on every square foot of Bangkok. But is it legal? Actually, sex tourism or prostitution is not allowed by the law of the state. It is, however, well under control of the police, and the government keeps a blind eye on the sex industry because of the millions of dollars in income to the national GDP.
In Singapore, sex work is as legal as legal can be and is regulated by law, but negative activities related to prostitution do come under scrutiny by the police. Because of this, sex service and its payments are usually done behind closed doors. While prostitution may be legal, pimping and brothels are not.
Police are used to turning a blind eye – this seems to be a common theme in the sex industry regardless of country – but famous sex houses do have to watch intently to make sure there is no criminal activity on the premises.
Singapore is a nation that it gives freedom for a prostitute to do her business on her own in her own apartment or house in such well-known places such as Geylang Road, Orchard, Decker Road, and the Keong Saik Red Light District. They also can do it in premises leased by them or in the client’s hotel. Prostitutes must undergo medical checkups to detect STDs and must carry with them a certificate stating that they are not carriers of any sexually-transmitted diseases.
The Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic is a giant in sex tourism, and yes, it is legal and comes under the protection of law enforcement. But just like Singapore, one cannot run a brothel to earn money from sex workers or through a third party. The sex worker has to earn money on his or her own. In the DR, sex workers can be freelance workers if they wish to do so. And there is also the opportunity to engage in the sex vending business in an area that is known as upscale areas.
In the Ukraine, Kiev and Odessa are known as the most well-liked sex tourism cities in the country. Sex tourism is actually illegal here, but there’s not much chance of interference from the law. These two cities have strip clubs and massage parlors blooming all over the place. Sex travelers to Ukraine make it a point not to miss out on visiting Kiev and Odessa where they can fulfill their sexual desires with the help of Ukrainian women and men.
Popular red light districts in Japan are the streets of Roppongi in Tokyo. But there’s a catch to sex travel in this country. While Japan enjoys a huge number of international travelers, female sex workers do not really like foreign men. Japanese women tend to believe that the type of sex that foreign men want is rough and to them this is undesirable. Along with that, they do not like the body smell of foreigners and find the language barrier a determent from engaging themselves to satisfy a customer’s sexual wants.
In Venezuela, women own the most precious traits that make them the summation of a real embodiment of beauty ever to be found on Earth. This holds true with the number of Venezuelan women who have earned the title of Miss World. Here, prostitution is legal, and sex work is a norm, especially in Caracas. This city booms with escort services to the delight of sex travelers. Brothels are also present here as well as erotic massage parlors and sex massage spas.
This type of tourism can raise ethical and legal concerns, as it may contribute to issues such as human trafficking, exploitation, and the spread of sexually transmitted infections.
