The aim or target of the literature explains what sex tourism is and with the consideration of what is involved now the paper mentions that sex tourism involves opportunities and creating relationships regarding prostitution, what the intention of a visit is for pleasure relaxation or just becoming involved in a sexual meeting also the type of critics who like to travel to do these activities. Now to identify what constitutes sex tourism firstly a sex tourist needs to be recognised but the main perspective involves what sex standards are how to recognise and overcome them. According to Hansen (1997). There are many tourists to go for sexual satisfaction for an enjoyable experience there is also the use of virtual sex there are websites which can be used for sexual experience using cyberspace. Also with the help of another source the paper argues that sex tourism is a way of unorthodox behaviour but according to Kinder (1999) the behaviour is too much that it can also be denied to people because it is a fantasy an act which is not allowed to be fulfilled. With the understanding of the above abstract it has come to my attention that sex tourism can be denied or accepted depending on the social aspect of the way behaviour is shown it is for satisfaction purposes but there are other risks that can be very effective according to Herald(1992) tourists are taking great risk when they are not in their senses they can get diseases such as HIV most sex tourists do not use condoms or carry condoms and with the help of research 34% of people from Switzerland use condoms while abroad. Sex tourism is quite dangerous and for no use of condoms HIV is becoming a consistent problem and spreading diseases in sex tourism countries. With reading the information is very important to have protection when approaching a sexual encounter mating or just having fun there are responsibilities and actions which need to took into consideration the percentage of HIV has increased and it is increasing at an alarming rate so there needs to be an age limit for this. Also teenagers are becoming vulnerable to this as Thailand is well known for sex tourism but the main problem which is not being disused is the consequences which can be caused upon behaviour which is the main theme behind the problem there is a lack of motivation as to how to approach a country involved with these open sources. So in a way all the authors state what sex tourism is what the specifics are but the other two authors touch upon how the behaviour is seen. Now taking this into consideration there needs to be standards as to what needs to be done because there are too many risks and with the help of further analysis more research can be done as to what solutions there are which are probable and helpful in a way to sex tourism. The more information which is found on sex tourism then advantages and disadvantages will allow a person to think of the subject there will be people who will have different views and opinions but the argument does not stop there and it something which should be addressed
