Metrics details. Sex tourism is defined as travel planned specifically for the purpose of sex, generally to a country where prostitution is legal. While much of the literature on sex tourism relates to the commercial sex worker industry, sex tourism also finds expression in non-transactional sexual encounters.
Sex tourism is travel to a different locale for the sake of sexual activity , particularly with prostitutes. The World Tourism Organization , a specialized agency of the United Nations , defines sex tourism as "trips organized from within the tourism sector, or from outside this sector but using its structures and networks, with the primary purpose of effecting a commercial sexual relationship by the tourist with residents at the destination". Generally, people who travel to engage in sexual activity, including with a prostitute, are subject to prostitution laws of the destination jurisdiction. When the sexual activity involves children , is non-consensual or involves sex trafficking , it is often illegal, both in the destination country and in the individual's home country. Domestic sex tourism involves travel within the same country, while trans-national sex tourism involves travel across national borders.
