Cottaging today


“I think gay men are more promiscuous now. I think the lesson of AIDS has been forgotten by a big clump of us.  ‘Have you got any protection?’ ‘No.’ ‘Oh well, you’ll be alright’. Cottaging and cruising still goes on. I don’t think gay men do it purely for the thrill, they do it because they prefer not to stand propping up a bar every night or having long conversations because the same conversation with six different people in six different nights must get a bit tedious, mustn’t it? I mean, a bit like when I was young and somebody would chat me up, I could feel myself repeating”.
