Everyone knows someone who has done it…but no one talks about it.

Listen to an interview with filmmaker Wendy Champagne and other experts on The Current.

A perfect getaway these days can likely involve much more than long sunsets and piña coladas on a palm-fringed beach. Sex tourism is a major global growth industry and while men are the traditional customers, today increasing numbers of women of all ages are seeking a “richer” holiday experience.

Love Under Cuban Skies follows a handful of women who travel to Cuba looking for romance and adventure. Through them and their lovers – educated, mostly unemployed young Cuban men – the film opens a larger examination into what drives women to seek love under other skies,  why Cuba is fertile ground for women’s sex tourism and what the consequences are for everyone involved.
