Summary/Abstract: For those who want to study sexual life, international migrations represent excellent strategic research material and allow researchers to study many important problems in innovative ways (Merton, 1987). Exploring the migration and sexuality nexus means dealing with one of the key problems of social science: how do actions and norms change when does the context change? To what degree do adult migrants reproduce in the new location their internalized normative models and their established preferences? To what degree, and under what conditions, is mobility a factor associated with increased erotic plasticity (Baumeister and Stillman, 2006)? Which elements of the available sexual subcultures are appropriated by migrants, and which ones resisted?
