    Why thousands of middle aged women are obsessed with holiday gigolos

    Jamaica Charges Suspect in Tourist Slaying

    The handsome young waiter's eyes followed Sarah as she walked across the restaurant, and she felt her heart beating faster as he leaned over to place a napkin in her lap.

    "At 54, I was unused to the attention of young men, especially a handsome one in his 20s," she says. "Our eyes connected as I told myself not to be silly - he couldn't possibly be interested in me. But I was wrong."

    Sarah Jarvis is 59 and has four grown-up children and four grandchildren.

    Attractive, slim and smartly dressed, she has been divorced from her lawyer husband for 15 years, and had resigned herself to a series of uninspiring dates with overweight, balding men of her own age at home in Chester.

    But here, on holiday with a girlfriend in the Turkish resort of Dalaman, was the promise of something very different.

    For Sarah was about to become one of the many thousands of British women courted by the legions of young foreign men in such tourist hotspots as Turkey, Egypt, Jamaica, the Gambia and Kenya.

    This summer, thousands of these middle-aged, single women will pour off the planes, to be met by countless fit, athletic-looking dark-skinned young men who will casually approach them, saying: "What a beautiful lady you are. Can I help you find your hotel?"

    The chance of a harmless sexual fling, or something more sinister?

    Jeannette Belliveau, a self-confessed former "sex tourist" and author of a book called Romance On The Road, says the problem is becoming endemic and that these women are deluding themselves about the dangers such flings present.

    "The ultimate risk is death," she says, bluntly. "In the past two years three Western women have been killed for their money by their foreign 'toy boys'."

    Some of these women tourists never went home after their holiday. Barbara Scott Jones, 61, from Leeds fell in love with Jamaica and was building a home on the island when she was found dead earlier this year.
