A new film by Singapore-based writer and director Amit Virmani called Cowboys In Paradise claims to have uncovered a scene in Kuta Beach, Bali where young Balinese surfers have turned themselves into gigolos, pleasing lonely and rich white women from around the world.

Sounds like a dream job for a young buck Bali boy, right?

But alas, the party police have gotten wind of the good times and tried in vain to put an end to the tomfoolery, and, according to a report on www.latimes.com, 28 of the bros were arrested for “disturbing the peace or security of the beach” after the cops were pressured by the local media to do something about the “problem.”

Personally I don’t see what the big deal is. Some chick from Norway has been working her ass for months and just wants to have a little fun with a brown skinned local surfer, so she buys him a few gifts, takes him to dinner, makes sweet love to the lucky bastard, etc. What’s the difference between that a dude spoiling his girlfriend rotten just to get a little action?


The best line ever from the director, “These little fuckers really seem to connect with the women.”
