Rastatute
 n.— «For all the talk of romance, the language of sex tourism is pretty basic. In Jamaica the men are called “beach boys” or “Rastatutes.” The women are called milk bottles by the men—partly because of their ultra-white skin, partly because they are seen as vessels waiting to be filled.» —“Women who travel for sex: Sun, sea and gigolos” by Liz Hoggard Independent (London, England) July 9, 2006.
