Rich Mzungus Cruise the Coast of Kenya for Mandingo Meat

"The white beaches of the Indian Ocean coast stretched before the friends as they both walked arm-in-arm with young African men, Allie resting her white haired-head on the shoulder of her companion, a six-foot-two 23-year-old from the Kamba tribe."
Hey, I didn't come up with it; Reuters did. But apparently rich, older white woman from Great Britain and beyond are vacationing on Kenya's palm-fringed beaches, shopping for men and by men I mean sex slaves.

Many hotel managers say they are doing all they can to discourage the practice of older women picking up indigenous local boys, arguing it is far from the type of tourism they want to encourage in the east African nation.

But when the sun goes down on the beach and in the bars, thousands of elderly white women sip the same local drink: a powerful mix of honey, fresh limes and vodka known locally as "Dawa," or "medicine" and cruise the strip looking for romantic, and legal, encounters with much younger Kenyan men.

But is it legal? Is it bribery? Prostitution? Neither? All of the above?

Rich white women go down there and buy these dudes designer sunglasses and expensive sneakers in trade for sex basically. It's fucking bizarre.

Reuters talked to one dude named Josef. Josef is six-foot-four 23-year-old from the Maasai tribe. Flashing a dazzling smile and built like an Olympic basketball star, Josef says he has slept with more than 100 white women, most of them 30 years his senior. Hahahaha! That's my boy.

"When I go into the clubs, those are the only women I look for now," he told Reuters. "I get to live like the rich mzungus (white people) who come here from rich countries, staying in the best hotels and just having my fun."

No harm, no foul I guess.
