Klougart shared a number of the photos with us here, but you can see the rest at her website.
Klougart first came across “romance tourism” while she was walking along the beaches of Mombasa, Kenya.

As a tour guide, she saw many tourists have romances with the locals and she swore that she would never become one of them.
Not long after, Louise began dating a Kenyan man and had a child.
IN 2009, SOFIE Amalie Klougart traveled to Mombasa, Kenya with a non-profit organisation.
Her day job was to document Action Aid’s numerous efforts to alleviate poverty in the country.
She is video chatting with a giggly dude on the other end. she ain’t innocently licking the lollipop, but simulating a sexual act in the back and forth characteristic of ‘field events.’ The man on the other end is also undressed and toying with bendera ya Kanu as they ‘sex chat.’ Many cyber cafes now have permanent clients who show up at sun up and sun down to Skype with their virtual partners, several time zones away. A lone wolf in the love department subscribes with at least $30 (about Sh 2,600) monthly. Some are for age mates of Kenya’s independence while some target hot bloods with raging hormones.
There are more than 20 popular dating websites in Kenya that have been customised to meet the social and sexual demands of different age sets. Facebook and Badoo are popular with those who heard of Robert Ouko in the [email protected] television series. Facebook and Badoo dating is mostly geared towards sexual experiments and men are more honest about their intentions in online escapades.

When she inquired with one of the women, she found that she was witnessing what many call “romance tourism” — lonely men and women who travel to impoverished countries in search of companionship and locals who willingly oblige, in exchange for gifts, free meals, and, sometimes, cold hard cash.
Klougart began documenting the affairs of the many women she met on the beaches of Kenya who introduced her to the sometimes troubling and sometimes empowering world of women who go after exactly what they want and nothing more.
Her husband died of cancer 20 years ago and she doesn’t want a new father for her children, only some companionship when she needs it.
