n.— «The names the men and women are known by colloquially belie the true nature of the transaction, some research suggests: It’s sex for hire, where black men’s flesh is tied—at least temporarily—to white women’s pursestrings. The men go by many monikers. In Jamaica and other former British colonies, they’re called rent-a-gents, rent-a-Rastas, rent-a-tutes, the Foreign Service. In the Dominican Republic, they’re sanky pankys (a play on “hanky panky”).» —“Sex tourism in full boom” by Jeff Heinrich Ottawa Citizen (Ontario, Canada) Jan. 8, 2007.
