Travels in the Skin Trade: Tourism and the Sex Industry

by Jeremy Seabrook - £24.99  Pluto Press (2001)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780745317564 | ISBN 10: 0745317561

This updated version of Jeremy Seabrook's book Travels in the Skin Trade contains a new preface, highlighting the current issues surrounding sex tourism in Thailand.
Press coverage of the sex trade routinely consists of ill-informed, moralizing and sensationalist denunciations of the "industry". Through the words of sex workers and their clients, journalist and writer Seabrook reconsiders the popular conception of the sex industry and explores the complex relationship between sex and tourism. In so doing he presents an objective, unmoralizing and sensitive view of the industry.
Through its examination of the many paradoxes surrounding this controversial subject, Travels in the Skin Trade also sheds new light on the wider and problematic relationship between the North and the South.
