    Huh?

    I read this book, but I kept coming back to this... these women are prostitutes! They are being paid to be whatever the men want. To say that just because you can bed and 'gasp' marry a prostitute, isn't saying much, even the Hallie Berry on steroid ones. It gets glossed over in the pages that this is all fantasy at a price. Sometimes a high price as these guys have multiple partners with very little protection. One guys writes that he hit it so hard the condom broke. I'm sure his significant other is cheering from the States. Another guy shrugs off the fact that the women are prostitues, 'so what if she's a prostitute' and another marvels at the low cost of bedding or 'buying' these 3rd world women. This book should not have glossed over the fact these black men use American black women and their 'attitudes' as justification for their behaving badly with prostitutes. It should have been front and center. I kept screming, 'Dude, you're paying for it, of course she will do what you want. And when your plane with all your 'friends' leave, this same woman is on the next batch, meaning you're not that special. But your money sure is.'

    Read this Book!

    At Thanks Giving in America most dinner attendees, as to the turkey, desire the white meat, but may settle for the dark meat, if they must; in much the same way, African-American men desire white women, but will settle for women of color, particularly if they have the chance (money) to go to Brasil (especially if they can make a sexual connection) for a relationship. "Black men, particularly middle-class, successful black men, know someone who has gone to Brazil, desire to go, or have been there themselves" (Woods, 2008, p. 12). African-American men yearn to go to Brasil to "Go buck wild" (Woods, 2008, p. 13)! "On these trips, men don't just have sex; they also live out their sexual fantasies" (Woods, 2008, p. 35). She continues with more confessions, "When black professional men mention to me, as many tend to do, that they have done everything in Brazil that has been done on the porn videos." (Woods, 2008, p. 75); furthermore, beyond their polymorphous perverse sexuality, is their personal attitude towards sex; rather than consider perversity to be bad, these African-American men consider all types of sexual impropriety to be good. Certainly, these African-American men in Brasil should rightfully be called sex-mongers or sexpatriates rather than expatriates! "There are so many black men who travel to Brazil that they have clubs and online chat rooms devoted to the experience" (Woods, 2008, p. 16). Expounding further on the promiscuous (and predatory) behavior of African-American men in Brasil: "The face of the 'ugly American' could very well be black now" (Woods, 2008, p. 30). Both concerning promiscuity and perversity, African-American men act insatiable in Brasil, "Otherwise healthy, normal, and virile men are reduced to taking buckets of Viagra, Levitra, and Cialis" (Woods, 2008, p. 72). Notwithstanding, blaming the "other" (a characteristic practice of the African-American culture) usually transpires, as expressed by the remark that "black men are ruined after they go to Brazil" (Woods, 2008, p. 197). Even though Jewel Woods (2008) fully acknowledges the preference of African-American males for Brazilian females and she explicitly states that the typical African-American male usually thinks with his "little head" (his penis), nonetheless, she blames the victim by inferring that Brazilian females are sluts and sexual deviates, "Most men, whether older or younger, agree that everything is on the table sexually in Brazil" (Woods, 2008, p. 96). "Going to Rio is like walking into a rap video: scantily clad women, gyrating and fawning over every man in sight" (Woods, 2008, p. 81). Ironically, although she titles her book "Don't Blame It on Rio" (Woods, 2008), there is a strong sense that she, in fact, does blame it on Rio!
