Generally most studies have examined relations between otherwise un-employed "freelance workers" or beach boys in tourist centers. They overlook on-the-job tourism workers as participants in the sex trade. Yet these workers are accessible and in constant and intimate contact with tourists. By analyzing relations between hotel workers and guests I argue in this study that the prevalent social-labor realities underscore the need for a more complex analytical framework to account for the fluid arrangements taking place between "hosts and guests.
Although the literature has begun to challenge studies that narrowly define sex tourism as solely involving monetary exchange the category of sex worker has remained unexamined and immutable within sex tourism research. If we account for spatial factors and assumptions based on race sexuality and class the "sex worker" category loses its stable meaning.
In this study I propose a more complicated approach that accounts for the provisional practices and identities that constitute sexual markets and that envelop understandings of labor and sex as more a matter of continua than a hard and fast definition.
