n.— «It happened a year ago on my first-ever visit to one of the Dominican Republic’s all-inclusive resorts. My friend and I looked at each other, wondering what to do. They weren’t hitting on us, exactly. But, even through the rum and the pounding music, we could tell they were offering themselves up for the taking. We shook our heads no, and the men moved on.…Later we learned they were what are called ” skankies.” Also known as beach boys, they are poor and exist by having week-long relationships with visiting Western women. Men offer sex and companionship, and in return women give them clothes, food, gifts and even cash.» —“No strings” by Ann Marie Mcqueen Sun (Edomonton, Alberta, Canada) Mar. 6, 2007.
