We had spent that day escaping the Sunday karaoke by visiting a secluded river elsewhere in the jungle and napping in a tiny open-air tree house above the water. He followed me back to the other side of the river saying he wanted to go ‘swimming.’ What was lost in translation is he really meant, ‘shower.’ In my room.

The next night I decided to observe with new eyes, watching the guys work their magic on girls they had taken trekking that day.It’s insane to think about, but the wives are usually fully aware. To make the pressure even stronger, these guys have an important role in giving back to their communities as well.Of course, like any trade where sex is on the table, the older they get, the harder it is to make money like they used to.They gave more undivided attention to these girls than they probably ever get back home.They were attentive, they’re attractive, and frankly irresistible. There was the time on a public bus to Bima (a town on the island next to Lombok) where the teenage kid seated next to me, after exchanging maybe two words, put his hand on my thigh.What they don’t know is they are often one of many girlfriends, and fidelity is not a given.

Some of my favorite quotes from the documentary were, “I score within three days. Many girls on the beach.” Or, “what’s important is the money’s good.

Honor and respect for others is the basis of Indonesian culture.

Due to this, Indonesian men are very polite, friendly, and they value loyalty to family and friends quite highly.

Though money isn’t directly exchanged for sex, they become kept men.

It seemed no different to me than some relationships between Thai women and Western men.

The longer I stayed in Bukit Lawang, the more I observed.
