Warning: Realism is not so important in this situation. To accept information from the sweetest parts of unknown places should be what exoticism is all about. Exoticism must be intrigue for the "other" unknown, a longing for familiarity with something that is not yet human. The melodies we listen to for the first time, the unknown scenes conveyed by photographs or pictures, the story of strange lands that you might hear from a friend...the emotion evoked by them all should be what we call exoticism. When we meet something exotic, we are shocked by a confrontation with the unknown, feelings never before experienced, and may react irrationally. The reason why people describe exotic music as "lewd" is due to a necessarily adverse psychological reaction.
