*you are the genius of beauty

... a sweet compliment isn't it? Actually one of the sweetest I've ever heard - it was said to one of my best friends. No doubt that she's an absolute beauty, but somehow I do dare to question the context of it.
It's a well-known fact that if the easiest way to a man's heart is through his stomach then the easiest way to a woman's heart is through her ears: the more sophisticated is the way a man can say "you are the most beautiful girl I've ever seen", the more likely is that she'll... let's put it as respond you (to not to be too cheesy). But nowadays girls have to be really critical about what they hear: at least if you're in Tallinn, you're beautiful, and the man who says it to you is a foreign.

Sad but true: Tallinn and Riga are the cities of sex tourism. Both in Riga and in Tallinn the foreigners arrive already knowing the names of the clubs in which it is easy to get acquainted with local girls. No doubt, the Baltic girls ARE beautiful, and this is the main reason why foreigners come here in crowds to have fun. In Latvia the problem is that we don't have unified politics for tourism development, while Estonia with its "Welcome to Estonia" have paved the way to the fame of a sex tourism country. The best advertisements for Estonia have become those stories told by tourists at their own countries about the easily and cheaply available beautiful girls.
Of course, I DO NOT assert that the whole Estonian/ Latvian female population can be regarded as... girls with ligh-minded behaviour... but if you have been out in the city on a Friday or Saturday evening, you know how it works: a foreign guy comes up to a lovely girl, says something like "you're the genius of beauty", offers some drinks (and as far as I know the girls usually order something not too expensive - if the Baltic prices for foreigners can be termed as high), and the afterparty goes on to continue in a hotel room...
