Easy and immediate opportunities to travel throughout the world today has helped to facilitate the possibility for some travellers and people stationed abroad to exploit minors sexually in return for payment. The main reason behind the existence of child sex tourism is the demand. This sometimes happens because the person is convinced that no one back home will find out or is under the impression that ‘it is permitted to a greater extent in certain cultures’. In other cases, it is assumed that there is less risk of being infected by HIV/Aids when having sex with children than with adults. Racism is also a common factor. Destinations for child sex tourists appear to be continually changing in pace with a certain country increasing its efforts against the phenomenon. Sexual offences against children are prohibited under Swedish law, regardless of where in the world they are committed.
