Kamaki (in English: a fishing lure) is the special name of the Greek men who spend time in tourist-heavy places courting women.
Kamaki are less active today than 30-50 years ago, but the fact is there are still men who are looking to have sex with as many foreign women as possible.

YOU WILL FIND HER: in Crete
YOU WILL RECOGNIZE HER: from her armpit hairs
YOU WILL APPROACH HER: by offering to spread sun-block lotion on her back so that her sensitive white skin doesn’t burn.
ADVICE: If you spend too much time talking her up, she will treat you like her older brother and ask you to introduce her to a friend of yours in order to get laid
YOU WILL FIND HER: on Rhodes
YOU WILL RECOGNIZE HER: from the hair on her legs which will hardly be visible because it’s blond.
YOU WILL APPROACH HER: With philosophical gibberish. Say whatever you feel like saying as long as you keep a sophisticated look. After all, they are blondes and will fall for it.
ADVICE: Show her your intentions from go. Otherwise, her vacation will end and she will leave the country without getting laid.
YOU WILL FIND HER: on Santorini
YOU WILL RECOGNIZE HER: From the designer label clothes and the CHRISTIAN DIOR bikini.
YOU WILL APPROACH HER: Definitely well-dressed and holding the “Le Monde”. Make a point of showing your preference of French products, by offering her a GAULOISES BLONDES cigarette.
ADVICE: Avoid showing her how much of a schmuck you are. Take her to an expensive Restaurant for dinner. You will enslave her!
YOU WILL FIND HER: on Corfu
YOU WILL RECOGNIZE HER: from the tons of beer she’ll have consumed at the Cavos pubs.
YOU WILL APPROACH HER: unshaven, with messy hair, a white t-shirt, jean and holding a beer.
ADVICE: don’t spend too much time chatting her up because you’ll end up going home wasted from all the beer consumption and you’ll have accomplished absolutely NOTHING.
YOU WILL FIND HER: EVERYWHERE!!!
YOU WILL RECOGNIZE HER: Sunbathing topless on the beach in order to attract attention (may tourists = a lot of competition).
YOU WILL APPROACH HER: With the best swollen item on you. Your wallet!!!
ADVICE: Make it understood that you prefer women “MADE IN GREECE”!!!
YOU WILL FIND THEM: on Mykonos
YOU WILL RECOGNIZE THEM: As soon as you get there
YOU WILL APPROACH THEM: Effortlessly. They’ll beat you to it and approach you first
ADVICE: If you are SO unappealing that not one gay tourist hits on you, stroll over to PIERRO’ S club and ask the DJ to play “I WANT YOU LIKE CRAZY” so you can dance on the bar. For what it’s worth, someone is bound to catch on!!!
