Description :
Yogyakarta's wild guides are young men who pursue fantasies of true love and easy wealth by striking up 'love affairs with tourist women. In romances with Western women, guides renegociate the sexual aspect of their masculinity, as tourist women's holiday-romance expectations of attentiveness and deference collide with this ideal masculine self-image. The tension between disgust and desire within guides' lifestyle leads to fragmented performances of identity for their different audiences.
