Sex, tourism and the postcolonial encounter : Landscapes of longing in Egypt. / Jacobs, Jessica.

Ashgate, 2010. 154 p. (New Directions in Tourism Analysis).

Research output: Book/ReportBook



Illustrated by interviews with women and men in the tourist resorts in the Sinai, Egypt, this book opens up the debate surrounding sex tourism by examining the way in which holiday romances between western women and 'native' men are linked to a much wider romanticism of place and people, which is used to sell these destinations. The work provides insights into gender issues to do with globalization, travel and sexuality.
