A Sanky Panky is a man who is going out with a foreign woman with the sole purpose of extracting as much money as possible from her.
Some will also be looking for a visa out of the country.
Love does not come into it, and when the woman has outlived her usefulness, and the money dries up, she will be unceremoniously dumped for a newer and richer model, by which stage she will probably have spent thousand of dollars on her Dominican man.
Not all Dominican men are Sanky Pankies by a long shot.
Many are good, kind and hardworking men with many great attributes.
However, single foreign women coming on holiday to the Dominican Republic need to be aware of the dangers of falling in love, and being caught up in the expert web of lies and deceit practised by these men.

The country boasts beautiful white sandy beaches all around the coastline, and stunning tropical countryside in the centre of the country.
