Around the World in 80 Lays
Adventures in Sex Travel
As globalization erodes national borders and the Internet spawns online communities for every conceivable interest or fetish, sex tourism is surging. Around the World in 80 Lays is the first book to explore the emergence of the online sex tourist subculture and its mounting impact on the world's flesh trade. The author, Joe Diamond, is himself an enthusiastic sex tourist, and an expert. In this groundbreaking travelogue, he traverses the globe to put sex tourism under the microscope. Through colorful anecdotes and solid research, "Rio Joe" takes readers to the world's most notorious sex havens: Brazil, Thailand, the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, the Czech Republic, and many more. Around the World in 80 Lays provides an insider's view of a fascinating and lurid world that has never been exposed to the American public.
