The GFGRG is excited to be hosting the launch of Erin Sanders-McDonagh’s monograph Women and Sex Tourism Landscapes during the RGS-IBG’s Annual International Conference.
Woman and Sex Tourism Landscapes focuses on the ways in which women interact with and explore sexual spaces in two specific touristic contexts – Amsterdam and
Thailand. Ethnographic data collected in both countries suggests that far from being male-centered spaces, the red light districts and associated sexual entertainment venues
are very much open to female tourists. The author argues that some women are indeed interested in exploring sexualized zones challenging assumptions about women’s
involvements with sexual space. By exploring these spaces with geography as a theoretical starting point, this analysis brings a new angle to understanding these types of sexual
zones, with a feminist edge.
All are invited to join us for the book launch which will take place on Wednesday 31st August at 18.45 in the RGS-IBG Drayson Room.
