At a time when the culture of men who have sex with men is under attack from all sides in the United States--caricatured by politicians, sacrificed by gay assimilationists, scapegoated for AIDS despite its essential role in HIV prevention, neglected by the gay organizations--this book brings much-needed light. It shows how little the reality of public sex conforms to the stereotype. It should be essential reading for journalists, politicians, and queers alike.(Roger N. Lancaster, editor of Fear of a Queer Planet: Queer Politics and Social Theory)|
Public Sex/Gay Space is an important collection. All the pieces raise honest, important, and uninhibited questions about the sex lives of many gay (and nongay) men. A colorful, insightful, and often original book.(Roger N. Lancaster, author of Life is Hard)|
In an era of increasing sexual repression, attacks on radical sexual expression are being launched from all quarters: aging gay liberationists, a medical establishment mired in outmoded models, pandering right-wing politicians, and profiteering religious fanatics. So-called public sex is an easy target for the antisex, antipleasure opportunists. Given the limited corpus of scientific publications on fringe sexualities in general and public sex in particular, the essays in this volume are a welcome addition to the discourse on an understudied and poorly desribed phenomenon that is both ancient and widespread.(Ralph Bolton, editor of The AIDS Pandemic)
