9781560239864: Public Sex in a Latin Society

Explore the risks and rewards of seeking and having sex in public places!

Public Sex in a Latin Society is one of the first books to explore the lives of people who look for sex in public places and the dangers involved--from murder to HIV infection. The book examines why many gay men have been murdered by sex workers who frequent public sex places, such as the parks, bathhouses, or saunas, and suggests some basic safety rules. Containing interviews with police officials, murderers, and sex workers, Public Sex in a Latin Society explores the motivations for seeking public sex, why gay men who have sex in public are sometimes murdered, and how these killings could be prevented.

This eye-opening book contains studies that examine mechanisms for assault and crime and examines data on the roles that sexual and physical abuse play in sex workers and their clients. Public Sex in a Latin Society explores Latin society's Catholic church-influenced negative view of homosexuality, explaining why gay men are seen as the equivalent of murderers and thieves, why the topic is censored in the media, and why client murders are rarely investigated.

Public Sex in a Latin Society discusses the dangers facing public sex seekers and suggests guidelines, such as:

  • refrain from flaunting wealth or wearing fine jewelry or clothes when looking for public sex to decrease the chances of getting mugged or physically assaulted
  • never try to negotiate changes to the agreement or method of payment after sex--this can bring on physical harm or even death
  • do not make advances or ask for sexual acts that were not agreed upon and be especially careful about everything relating to anal sex
  • never take drugs or drink alcohol while seeking sex in order to be alert if you are attacked

    Public Sex in a Latin Society provides you with a shocking analysis of how public sex in Latin America has become part of the Latin economy without advancing sexual liberation or social equality. This provocative and intelligent book will give you a better understanding of Latin American sexual culture.
