After having a small dinner and a few drinks with some friends last night at my house, I asked two of them, one from Colombia and another from Morocco if they understood what we call the novelty factor which they didn’t until I further explained.
You know when an American or someone from another foreign country shows up in Colombia the girls will give him preferential treatment and usually go out of their way to please him or easily date him quickly among other things.
Immediately she made a pfffss sound and said, yes it used to be like that. She said but has not been for a while, so I asked why and she said well now we know how they are, that is gone. They come to our country for sex but yet, do not want to have sex with the prostitutes but find good girls to have sex with and leave. So it was after that many years of this that the novelty factor is gone. The families begin to hate Americans passing through. The media does not help and blames the entire sex tourism thing on Americans which is completely false. Simply proven that prostitution flourishes in cities of Colombia where no foreigners go. Those places are filled daily with locals as foreigners as stated do not even need to go to those places set up on many corners throughout the cities.
The Moroccan jumps in and said, most of the foreigners that go to Morocco from Europe or the Middle east are disgusting trying to meet with school girls and under aged girls and boys for there pleasure. They take advantage of our country and travel just for that. I jump in and ask doesn’t Morocco have prostitutes everywhere for this, she says yes but they also try and feed off of the innocent girls which made us see them much differently. She further stated that she hates these men and noted which countries the men were the worst.
They both noted that their are exceptions to this but very few as one of them has a sister who married a foreign guy from Europe.
It seems to me that the novelty factor is long gone worldwide and may have caused some turbulence and hatred along the way further making it more difficult for the good men to find good wives. Even when these cities are full of prostitutes, they love to play the blame game and blame it all on the traveler as their culture cannot do wrong.
