Abstract

Contesting the constraints of conventional gender identity, many Euro-American women travelers to Jamaica pursue romantic affairs with local men. By elaborating on features from their gender repertoire, men articulate the women tourists' idealizations of local culture and masculinity, transforming their identity in order to appeal to the women andcapitalize on the tourism trade. The disparity in economic status between partners in these relationships creates an opportunity for women to traffic in men. This situation illuminates the links between economic status and dominance in gender relations and contradicts conventional notions of male hegemony. Power in these relationships is shifting and situational, playing off traditional gender repertoires, as well as the immediate circumstances of finance and cultural capital.
