About me

It was a world where I was noticed, where I could perform, where I was needed. Cruising Alex Espinoza.

Along the way, Espinoza writes of his own history of cruising. That includes his sexual initiation when, as a confused year-old working-class Latino boy, he was picked up by an Houston Texas TX in dating man. According to Espinoza, that encounter broke a seal inside of me, released a flood of emotions and hormones and urges which, until that moment, had remained just below the surface. For Espinoza, cruising has profound social and political implications.

True cruising allows people to set the terms of their own desire and both leave satisfied.

It is founded on equality. In a patriarchal culture, male privilege is upheld by an institutionalized misogyny that rigidly enforces gender roles in which men must always be the Mission first date ideas active partner a point Espinoza illustrates in his discussion of ancient Greek and Roman homosexuality.

The act of men having sex with each other as equal partners, especially mutual penetrative sex, represents a sexual fluidity that undermines those rigid gender roles and, by implication, male privilege itself. Cruising is equal in the sense that the man tapping his foot invitingly in the toilet stall next to you might be a day laborer or a United States senator.

Doubtless, even Espinoza would agree date native Brownsville girl the same problematic hierarchies of attractiveness that prevail on cruising apps like Grindr operate in park bushes and shopping mall bathrooms. Finally, as his own experience shows, cruising can be initiatory, particularly for gay men who have no other outlet to explore their sexuality.

For these reasons, civil authorities have persistently and unsuccessfully tried to best Peoria IL to meet women cruising grounds for centuries. As Espinoza notes, these efforts ultimately backfired. Espinoza comes down of the side of the former. Indeed, there are many thorny questions raised by the culture of cruising that Cruising side-steps or simply does not ask. Cruising is a relatively brief book and clearly meant to be celebratory. As such, it is hardly the last word on the subject. But cruising as the practice of men having sex in public spaces raises some tough questions and, because the book calls itself a history, however brief, a reader might legitimately ask why they were not addressed as part of that history.

One such issue is the very basic question of whether society has a legitimate interest in banning sex in public. Cigarette smoking in public girl meet Kansas City Missouri MO is likewise heavily regulated, notwithstanding that smoking per se is not a crime. It could be argued, of course, that smoking restrictions are justified because of health concerns about the effects of secondhand smoke. But restrictions on public drinking have no such public health basis; they seem more in the nature of protecting bystanders from nuisance.

Banning sexual activity in public spaces would also seem to fall into this category of preventing nuisance.

But is nuisance prevention a sufficient and reasonable justification for criminalizing sex in public? Is the presence of men having sex in the bushes a few feet from a hiking trail in a public park so disturbing to public order that they should be liable to arrest and prosecution? Is the man quietly masturbating in a toilet stall in a park bathroom chat room free no registration Corpus Christi TX hopes of attracting a partner so offensive to public decency that he should go to jail?

Exploring and answering those questions would seem fundamental to a history of cruising. For example, should the community dating in Huntington and expending its political capital to defend the practice? This is not an easy question to answer.

From its very inception as a mass movement, a foundational right claimed by queer activists was the freedom of sexual expression. It could hardly have been otherwise. In the early s, when the Gay Liberation movement, as it was then known, first emerged, every state but Illinois had a sodomy law that criminalized sex between people of Eugene lankan females dating same gender. The criminalization of their sexual practices was the legal edifice on which all forms of discrimination against the gay and lesbian community was based.

Inevitably then, decriminalization of sex between people of the same gender was a basic plank in the platform of gay rights. Thus, from its earliest days, the LGBTQ rights movement has included some form of advocacy for the right to freedom of sexual expression. In the more recent years, some LGBTQ activists have downplayed this central principle of the queer movement, fearing undue emphasis might alienate Fort Collins CO girls free dating straight allies.

This, in turn, fuels verbal and even physical violence against queer people who refuse to keep their hands to themselves in public.

Clearly, the LGBTQ community should defend the right of its members to publicly display the ordinary physical expressions of love that heterosexuals take for granted. But, where to draw the line?

Does this right to PDA include the right to have sex in parks and public toilets? Is that a hill the queer community is or should be willing to die on? What gay men have been historically denied is not dating over 40 Richmond Virginia VA but the right to form culturally recognized and legally protected relationships with each other if they choose to.

There are undoubtedly openly gay men who like to cruise for all the reasons that Espinoza lays out in his book. It is likely, however, an equally large consists of closeted or straight-identifying men unwilling or afraid to seek out partners for sex in identifiably gay spaces. The very existence of the LGBTQ community and its successes are based on the dating a Dallas Texas be like of its members Scottsdale match dating come out of the closet and forcefully advocate for their rights.

Again, this is a problem that complicates a simply positive and bucolic view of cruising. As a memoir, Cruising is touching, resonant, and deeply felt. As a history of cruising it is, if not definitive, a provocative starting point.
