Gay Sex Tourism
Sex tourism is a largely unspoken about industry – however billions of dollars are spent each year by sex tourists around the world. An increasingly popular group of sex tourists are gays – and in this guide we shall look in more detail at gay sex tourism.
What is Gay Sex Tourism?
Sex tourism is the practice of traveling to a domestic or foreign city with the purpose of taking part in sexual activities. Gay sex tourism is simply sex tourism for gays!
The types of activities that gay sex tourists participate in vary – some go with the sole intention of having sex with others whereas others only partially go with that intention.
The Gay Sex Tourism Industry
The gay sex tourism industry is a niche tourism market that is starting to catch on more predominantly around the world.
In a recent report it was found that approximately 10 percent of tourists around the world are gay and lesbian – showing how influential the market is.
Thousands of gay and lesbian singles and couples head to various destinations around the world each year which has great benefits to local and international economies.
As homosexuality is becoming much more acceptable around the world, more and more people are openly taking part in gay sex tourism and it is expected to become a much larger and open industry with new specifically gay sex tour companies opening up all the time.
Why does Gay Sex Tourism Exist?
There are many reasons why gay sex tourism exists – many of which are very similar to those for straight sex tourists.
When you’re on holiday many people feel that they can truly live out their desires – sometimes at home you can feel a little restricted and afraid to try something new. As a sex tourist you can let your inhibitions go and just have lots of fun – then once it’s all over you can go home to your normal life again with no consequences!
Another reason why gay sex tourism has come about is that not all cities and countries are very tolerant towards homosexuals, so many travel overseas where it is more acceptable and they can be themselves and meet other gays more easily. In many countries homosexuality is actually illegal so many gay people are very restricted when it comes to being themselves – giving them a good reason to get away to a gay-friendly destination.
Essentially the main reason why gay sex tourism exists is because it is fun! We all love sex – so why not incorporate it into our next vacation for the ultimate getaway?!
