Goa: Beyond sun, sand & sea, there’s sleaze & sex


It is two hours past midnight, but along the narrow, dusty road from Calangute to Baga beach, it’s business as usual; especially if you are cruising for sex or other allied kinks.

goaBy day, the busy three-km long path, trod upon by hundreds of thousands of tourists every season, is a lively, colourful affair with hawkers, cafes, tattoo stores, bikini shops, few-dollars-a-day resorts and buzzing bars. By night however, this stretch of road could well be called Goa’s cruising capital, whether it’s for women, men or transgenders.

A few hundred metres away De Baga Deck, a famous round-the-clock café and bar in Baga, an extremely popular beach, 20 km from Panaji, a well-sculpted figure in a tiny black skirt and high heels hails down a Maharashtra-registered Mahindra Bolero jeep ferrying what appears to be four men.

Both the necklace and glossy lipstick on the figure shade glows softly in the sodium-vapour lamp light, but as you get closer, you can hear four men haggling with the figure in black, whose voice incidentally is as male as it can get.

“Get lost. Rs 1,000 for four men? Have a beer on me you beggars,” says Naina, who a few seconds later tells Firstpost, that her price for the night is Rs 2,000 and for an hour Rs 500.
