Excerpt: Rubber-Free? Sex on the Beach and a Wet Pussy
We take a morning walk along the pristine beach, past the new dive centres and manicured lawns where the dry jungle and coconut groves used to be. Two sun-bathing white men have made a little nest in the white sand, and one is pointing his camera steadily at the edge of the shallow sea.
There's a strange thrashing nearby in the water, like a fat fish fighting to be landed. We're twenty meters away now. A young white couple seems to be playing in the water, and they look kind of sweet in a tropical in-love kind of way. Ten steps closer and we can see the young man's naked, moon-white backside pounding into his girlfriend's barely submerged pelvis.
Ten meters away, and the boy finally looks up – an inane, animal-like grin taped across his face as his girlfriend grips his butt and grimaces at the empty blue sky. They disengage like street dogs and stare. Ketut starts shaking. In Indonesia, even a public display of affection like holding hands is seen as a disrespectful lack of self-discipline. It takes her two or three minutes before she can speak.
She stops, and turns to me.
– "You know, up until now, I've never seen two fish fuck in the sea..."
