Sex tourism in Madagascar

Madagascar must stop sex tourism and child prostitution


In Nosy Be - one of the most tourist area in Madagascar-  a lot of men go in search of sex and sometimes love. One could easily give it the dreary name of sexual tourism taking place in one of the poorest countries in the world: on one side misery and need, on the other money and presents which will fulfill the desire of an exotic adventure .
Nosy Be, especially Ambatuluka was exactly a brothel village and 60% of sex tourism was committed by the French"

Mixed couples were quite common: there were some part-time marriages: she lived in Madagascar and he lived and worked in Europe, every three or four months he joined his Malgasy family; who knows if he has another wife in Europe? And then, there were the distant girlfriends (or lovers): the European man was going to Nosy Be every year for his holiday and there was a girl waiting for him; more frequently, however, the situation was given by the vacationers looking for girls who could give them a sexual company during their vacation. It cost around € 15.00 euros per night. I heared that the child sex tourism problem exists in other cities, like Tamatave, and Diego Suarez, as well as the capital city of Antananarivo; Often the family encouraged (justified by poverty) girls into prostitution. Unicef estimates that 30/50% of the prostituites in Madagascar are under the age of 18. Infact in Ambatuluka I often saw children with olders and it was really something disgusting. Madagascar has so many resorces which can be devoloped without necessarily resorting to sex tourism.
