Sex tourism in Brazil
What is it about?
The article is based on ethnographic research conducted in the city of Natal, Brazil. It examines the shifting, racialized political economy of love in the context of transnational, heterosexual sex tourism. The main argument made is that love operated as an emotionally recognizable cultural script both enabling local women to remake themselves as upwardly mobile subjects while also disrupting existing hierarchies and inequalities.
Why is it important?
It works to expands our understanding of emotional labour in the context of sex tourism.
