Cowboys in Paradise, Beach Boys in Kuta Bali

The documentary Cowboys in Paradise, widely condemned by residents of Bali. The story of the boys who works as a gigolo in Bali, damaging the image of the island of gods. Though residents of Bali, especially around Kuta beach, admitted gigolo has existed since 20 years ago, when the new kuta become a world-class tourist attractions. Only recently known since the advent of the documentary.

Professional gigolo in Kuta Beach in a documentary, Cowboy in Paradise, which was made by a Singaporean of Indian descent, was very disturbing their lives in Bali. Beach boys is another name of the man who works around Kuta beach. Because the the boys are working along Kuta beach very much, so it's hard to distinguish the male who works as a gigolo with men who are not a gigolo. Due to being a gigolo is veiled profession. No one dared to open the profession as a gigolo. Beach boys there are a lot professions. Traders beer, masseur, surfing instructors, tattoo makers, and so forth. About 20 years ago, there gigolo in Bali, especially in Kuta beach.

Gigolo in Bali has become the world's attention since the advent of the documentary Cowboys in Paradise. Even the village chief in Kuta acknowledge that there is indeed a gigolo in Kuta. They exist since Kuta developed into a world class tourist destination. Due to this documentary, many young Balinese feel upset and disappointed. Because not all youth who work along the Kuta beach becomes a gigolo.

Not all men who work along the beach in Kuta is a gigolo. The documentary shows as if all men are gigolo, which is called by the beach boys at Kuta Beach. Bali's image damaged by very small things. Perhaps there is a gigolo in all countries, but it seems to be a documentary of a sentence that destroys the image of the man in Bali.

Besides gigolo, which is damaging the image of the people of Bali are prostitutes from Sanur. Prostitutes in Sanur are all from Java. They come from a place of localization in Java. Because prostitutes were already sold in Java, and then brought to Bali with very cheap rate.

Tourism and prostitution indeed inseparable. Bali as a world tourism destination must be open to face this phenomenon. If people are too closed and fanatical Bali, tourism became the main income residents of Bali will disappear.
