Women and Sex Tourism Landscapes

Sexual spaces, normally inhabited by (mostly) female sex workers, are understood as masculine spaces, and positioned for and around male consumers. However, red light zones and public sex performances in both Thailand and Holland are being explored and visually consumed by female tourists in significant numbers. Their presence in red light districts and sexual venues is at odds with the ways in which sexual spaces have normally been positioned. Woman and Sex Tourism Landscapes explores female tourists' interactions with highly sexualized spaces and places in two very different contexts: the Netherlands and Thailand. Addressing this incongruence, this text explores the ways in which these spaces are constructed, and examines the different relations that govern the management of, and female tourist interactions with these liminal,sexual zones. Ethnographic data collected in both countries suggests that far from being male-centred spaces, the red light districts and associated sexual entertainment venues are very much open to female tourists. Drawing on this research the author argues that some women are indeed interested in exploring sexualized zones, challenging assumptions about women’s involvements with sexual space. Thinking specifically about the visual nature of women's sexualized experiences, the analysis draws on a range of different theoretical understandings that address power, privilege, and the gaze. An important contribution to a range of debates, this book will appeal to students and researchers in tourism, geography, sociology, gender studies and cultural theory.

Die kulturellen Praktiken der Heritage-ifizierung - der Herausbildung und Nutzung von kulturellem Erbe - sind es, die in diesem Band in ethnographischer und historischer Perspektive einer Bestandsaufnahme unterzogen werden. Ein interdisziplinäres Autorenfeld untersucht Fallbeispiele vom Baltikum bis nach Südmexiko und durchleuchtet die spätmoderne Konjunktur des kulturellen Erbes auf ihre historische Genese und gegenwärtige Ausprägung. Die Beiträge erkunden die Rolle der Wissenschaften in der Produktion von kulturellem Erbe und fragen nach analytischen Zugangsweisen an das Thema heritage.
