Sex tourism

Redirected from Child sex tourism

Sex tourism involves tourists traveling from a economically wealthy country to a poorer one (and one with usually less strict morality laws) for the purpose of engaging in sex with prostitutes. Common destinations for sex tourists include Thailand, Brazil, Cambodia, Costa Rica, and Cuba. Since the collapse of the Iron Curtain, Russia and the Czech Republic have also become popular destinations for sex tourists.

While the overwhelming majority of sex tourists only engage in this activity with other adults, a very small percentage actively look for underage child prostitutes. Several countries have severe laws on the books making sex with children (see pedophilia) abroad a serious offense.
