English This makes sense to me because I have attended a few HIV support groups, especially after I first tested positive, and the cruising vibes were strong.
People come together and need each other when they are in difficult places, and sometimes sex is part of that. In my lowest moments, I have cruised for sex simply because I needed to be around someone else or forget my problems for a little bit. There is something important about this type of cruising, because while it might not be totally healthy, it is totally human. Craigslist was launched out of San Francisco in Almost immediately, people began posting personal ads for sex services, companionship, kink, and to satisfy every fetish you can imagine, from sitting on cakes to voyeurism to some considerably darker fare minors, cannibalism, you name it.
Craigslist changed the game for men seeking men. Sites catering exclusively to gay dating and personals came later. Gay sex sites came with them — BarebackRT. Gay cruising had found its home on the web, and suddenly we needed to spend more time in front of our computers. In , the fabric of gay life changed again.
Denver Gay Bathhouses and Sex Clubs Guide
In the future, we will look back at a massive turning in gay culture — when gay hookup apps, which locate other users through the geolocation devices in your smartphone, hit the market. In , Grindr had 4 million users in countries across the globe, with 1. Those numbers have doubtlessly increased today. Any mention of Grindr in will inevitably result in some eye rolls. Tiresome arguments between guys who hate hookup apps and guys who love them continue to rage across gay media outlets. Some say Grindr and other apps have destroyed gay life.
Others say they have simply redefined it. Regardless which side you fall on, hookup apps are here to stay. I think the success of hookup apps was fairly foreseeable. If you give gay men an effortless way to hunt for sex on-the-go, everywhere they go, all the time, they are going to go for it. We have always have been doing this — Grindr simply made cruising easier. Scruff was launched in , the year after Grindr hit the app store.
Scruff is an app that essentially does the same Grindr does, but with different features unlimited profile text, more in-app search tools and, some would argue, catered to a slightly different user base. In , Scruff reported 8 million users worldwide. Today, there are dozens of gay dating apps in addition to these two: X, and many others all trying to get in on the action. Take your pick. Leather festivals like International Mr. Nothing is discrete at Folsom. While public sex is typically not allowed at leather events themselves, the plethora of parties happening in conjunction with them are the main sexual fare.
Real Bad. Papa Party. White Party Miami the whole week of it. White Party Palm Springs. Purple Party in Dallas. Winter Party Miami. Gay Days Orlando.
The Pines Party on Fire Island. Southern Decadence. The list goes on, and on, and on. All over the world, from Tel Aviv to Rio de Janeiro, gay circuit parties have turned modern gay life into something global and glamorous — and expensive. Cruise culture has changed — no doubt about that. Some guys say cruising is dead, simply because it is harder to cruise for sex in public now.
Train stations, parks, and public restrooms have more security personnel and fewer cruising patrons — particularly when many guys can just sit at home and hookup on Scruff. Cruise culture is alive, but it has been monetized. Circuit parties, which are essentially massive cruising fests, are beautiful, expensive things that cater to gay men with enough disposable income to afford tickets and travel and clothes, and drugs, and hotel rooms, and harnesses, and all the many other costs that inevitably factor in.
My impulse is to wag my finger at an industry that caters to the rich — but I also love circuit parties. After the devastation of the AIDS epidemic and after generations of gay men seeing their lifestyles portrayed in ugly ways, the feeling of being in a warehouse filled with gay men celebrating themselves and their sex is radical and life-changing. It is a feeling I think every gay man should experience. I saved the best for last. Backrooms are relics of an earlier time, when managers and owners generously created a space where their patrons could do what they needed to do with each other and looked the other way — or perhaps joined in.
But gay bars today are now flocked with bridesmaids and visited by health inspectors and must struggle to stay afloat in a world where hookup apps have hurt their business, meaning backrooms have all but disappeared. You cruise on the dance floor — backrooms are where the cruising takes you. I love backrooms and see them along with public cruising as part of the same picture, one that composes a big part of our history as gay men. Regardless of your views on sex, cruising defined our world at one point. It was how we met each other, how we fell in love, and constituted the whole of our sex lives years before apps and websites would take out all the guesswork and, for many, all the fun as well.

All Rights Reserved. Before there was Grindr Bathhouses Before anyone tries to convince you that bathhouses are no fun — that they are filled with creepy onlookers and tweaked-out drug addicts — go to one. Public Parks City parks were once the cruising grounds for gay men. Beaches Antonio Da Silva has a thing for public cruising.
Piers A cursory history of gay New York must include the West Side piers — a gay landmark that, for many gay men in the '70s, was the epicenter of the art and sex movement that happened between Stonewall and the onset of the AIDS epidemic.

Gay Bars Like all other parts of gay culture, gay bars have changed. Department Stores Large department stores — particularly the tragically understaffed kind where you can topple over a pile of bedding sets and no one will notice for hours — often have unstaffed fitting rooms and lots of places to hide. Adult Video Stores Many adult video stores have private video booths, but if the one in your city does not, the gay section is where you want to be. Madrid Gay District. Madrid Travel Guide.
