HAVANA TIMES – I’m not very progressive, let’s say. I am in some respects, of course, such as human rights, democracy and whatnot. However, I tend to be a little politically incorrect about other things.

This is why I like to read websites such as MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way), Pildora Roja or PUAs (Pick Up Artists). It’s not a matter of me being a follower of some of these online communities (which seem extreme to me in reality), but I do agree on certain points of view that I find to be true and interesting.

Well anyway, sometimes I visit one of these websites. The author is quite an intelligent person, but as he lives in another dimension, he is one of those people who thinks that Spanish and Western European men in general, are more attractive to women.

I don’t know whether this is the case in any other Latin American country, but it isn’t the case here in Cuba. It definitely isn’t.

I say this because those visitors are always impressed with the affection they receive from our fellow countrymen and women. So many of them take the bait, marry Cuban women, and take them back to their countries.

Comments on Internet sites about Cuban women

Unfortunately, you can read comments by Europeans on internet forums about how easy it is supposedly to pick up women in Cuba. I especially find it awful the way they degrade our women.

I have had the opportunity to get to know two of these women who dedicated themselves to “jinetear” back in the day, a term we use here in Cuba to refer to those who prostitute themselves with foreigners.  Both of them had vast experience in the matter. They told me they never felt good sexually when they were with foreigners, that there wasn’t anyone like a Cuban man.

You can prove this if you look around you. They all continue to sleep with their Cuban lovers. 

It isn’t a question of us Cubans being the best lovers in the world either. Plus, this whole “latin lover” business is a stereotype that is far from reality.

Nor that a Spanish person is less good-looking, because many of us descend from them.

The thing is, though, that because we live in poverty, any foreigner in Cuba is seen as a man that can help solve their financial problems and/or be their ticket out of here. When a woman from anywhere else in the world (not only here) puts a man in a certain box, there’s no way you can change her mind.

How foreign men are often perceived in Cuba

However, the different reality these foreign men are used to in their countries doesn’t allow them to pick up on the fact that any tourist that steps on Cuban soil is seen as such by many women.

Soon, foreign tourism will again invade Cuba. Floods of Canadians and Europeans (and who knows even US citizens too after Biden assumes the presidency in the US) will come here seeking out sex tourism.

A vaccine against COVID-19 is already on the horizon for 2021. On the other hand, the dictatorship needs an injection of hard currency to help save the national economic crisis. 

So, everything will continue like before, but these foreign men should have one thing crystal clear: Most Cuban women are only interested in their money.

I am a man who fights for his goals, who assumes the consequences of his actions, who does not stop at obstacles. I could say that adversity has always been an inseparable companion, I have never had anything easy, but in some sense, it has benefited my character. I value what is in disuse, such as honesty, justice, honor. For a long time, I was tied to ideas and false paradigms that suffocated me, but little by little I managed to free myself and grow by myself. Today I am the one who dictates my morale, and I defend my freedom against wind and tide. I also build that freedom by writing, because being a writer defines me.

  • Beauty is in the eye of the beholder my friend. It does not matter where you come from or your ethnicity.We are all people. Stop all generalizing people on categories. Its very ignorant.

  • Dear Ben, I have not established, as you mean, that Cuban men are the best. Obviously you have made a superficial reading of my article and have interpreted them in your own way. Why wear myself out then explaining?

  • Dear Pedro,
    You made me laugh with the comment on my psychic abilities haha. I just thought it odd at best the need to come out of nowhere and establish that CUBAN MEN ARE THE BEST AND CUBAN WOMEN SAY SO!!! At least, that is how the article reads.
    You are very right about the Cuban girl of mine, she would not have invited me if we were in Cuba however the point is she liked me enough to do so once being in a better económic position in Spain. In the town where we lived there were many Cuban men. So, it appears that your analysis of Cuban women only liking Cuban men is not at all true… She could have chosen Cuban men with money yet instead she chose the broke Englishman looking for work.

  • Lately I read, with the help of my wife (who knows English) the digital version of Havana Times in that language, which is the one in which this site is read the most. I’m going to let you respond to BD and Ben, rather than ego for a truth-establishing reason. BD I’m not really a party person, nor do I waste my time after artist sites. I don’t know where he gets that from. And although it may be true that natives sleep with foreigners in tourist circuits anywhere in the world, at least in Cuba, the country where I live, the main reason for men and women to do so is of material interest. On the other hand, Ben surprised me by his psychic abilities to detect a “line of jealousy” in my writing. I’m not really attracted to prostitutes and I’ve never had a hard time seducing women. And I assure you that that Cuban girl you met in Spain, living here in Cuba, would not have invited you to go out and pay for her. If you don’t believe me, come to Cuba and then tell me if any Cuban will want to invite you. I guarantee you not, unless you are an adonis, which I don’t think is the case.

  • DB, good points.
    I did detect a line of jealousy in his writing…
    I had a fling with a Cuban girl in Spain not that anyone gives a Mother….
    She liked this little white boy with the green eyes… And I was beyond broke – so, it’s not all about money. She used to invite me out!
