When white women flock to Jamaica for a little fun in the sun, they are looking for RandR often not rest and relaxation, but to rent a Rasta according to director J. Michael Seyfert. His revelatory exhibition ‘of the same name sheds light on a barely acknowledged form of sex tourism, namely, white women who visit the Caribbean islands to get your groove back with the help of black locals. The documentary says that every year, up to 80,000 females from a variety of relatively wealthy Western nations descend on Jamaica alone.

Most of those who tend to meet their Island Fever with mindless abandon, apparently middle-aged and / or single women who are overweight. Ignored by white men, and afraid to date blacks openly due to social taboos, seeking satisfaction in the remote stations through the anonymity of a virtual paradise. These ladies safety decadent boy toys attract money, electronics, designer clothes, ornaments, or whatever material item it takes to get uncomplicated sexual favors with the strict understanding that like in Las Vegas, what happens in Jamaica stays in Jamaica. As a satisfied customer, 45 years old, single, central, explains his addiction to hedonistic getaway, a girl that nobody looks twice is beaten all the time here.

All these guys are paying attention, saying that she is really beautiful, and I really wanted. It’s like a secret, a fantasy, then you go home. While this view of justification of the lucky ladies “for their no-link chain is certainly informative, the picture is actually much more interesting when it tells the story of Jamaica, which meanders from the days of slaves through the increase of Rastafari to the present. Framed in this perspective, we suddenly see a persistent pattern of total subjugation and economic inequality, with islanders providing stud service only the latest form of exploitation.
