An exploration of the connections between the global economy and sex work, focusing on the experiences and views of women, men and children who sell sex. Apart from attention to sex tourism in Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Barbados and Jamaica, the book also examines sex work in the gold mining industry in the hinterlands of Suriname and Guyana, and in the entertainment sector in Belize and the Dutch Antilles. It presents insights into the Caribbean sex trade and provides proposals and strategies for addressing the situation in the 21st century.
