It is no secret that many come to Russia with hopes ranging from spicing up their sex lives to bringing home an "ideal wife" - someone warm, caring, feminine, and family-oriented.
In our estimate one-third to one-half of independent travellers (i.e.
non-package tour, non-business) to this part of the world come here with sex, love or marriage in mind. While our position on what I'll broadly call "dating" tends to be on the sceptical side, we recognize and accept that many of our guests come to Russia with that objective in mind.
These include gender disbalance, flux and transition of social values and norms, and all-encompassing fragmentation and alienation so typical of modern societies that forces men to look at women of "traditional" cultures.
At the same time one needs to be realistic about trans-cultural relations and, in particular, those between North American men and Russian women...

I spent five weeks in the Siberian city of Tomsk and two weeks in Moscow.
Here are my thoughts: There are some differences, but they are so minor that you can go to Moscow having read Bang Ukraine and still know what you’re doing.
Ukrainian girls have more restrained personalities upon first meeting, but when they open up, they are similar to Russian girls.
Ukrainian girls will dig into my background to see if I’m a Turkish sex tourist, but most Russian girls I met didn’t do this.
Advantage: Russia Russian girls give better initial responses to your approach and are more likely to give you their number from a shorter conversation, but are not easier to get into bed.
I also experienced more flakes in Russia, meaning I had to get more numbers to schedule one date than in Ukraine.
Advantage: Ukraine by a hair You will not find much in the way of value in Russia.
