Sex tourism has been associated with human trafficking (sex slavery), violence, child sexual exploitation and the transmission of HIV/AIDS. Though marginalised, sex tourism is globally pervasive, embracing multiple stakeholders and contextualised within complex systems. Chaos theory can be applied to facilitate better understanding of sex tourism systems and their relationships in the wider tourism development process. A tourism ‘butterfly’ systems configuration is proposed which has potential implications for intervention strategies by governments, NGOs and the tourism supply chain in seeking to influence global, national and local systems.
