PISCITELLI, Adriana. Exoticism and authenticity: tales of travelers in search of sex. Cad. Pagu [online]. 2002, n.19, pp.195-231. ISSN 0104-8333.

The socio-anthropological production on tourism opposes the mass character imputed to the views of contemporary tourists to the individual character attributed to the "trip". This text establishes a dialogue with arguments present in that opposition, based on ethnographic analyses of tales by travelers in search of sex used to places in the international circuit of sexual tourism. Centering on fictional/experiential accounts, Plateforme, recently published novel by Michel Houellebecq, Mattioli Ross' travel accounts and tales told by travelers in search of sex, framed by a research on international sexual tourism in Brazil's Northeast, the text establishes such a dialogue considering the notions central to those accounts crisscrossed by gender: exoticism, sexuality, authenticity.

Palabras clave : Tourism; Sexuality; Prostitution.
