    Ever since Larry Craig made the news at that airport I've wondered what was going on. Is foot tapping a big thing?
    I've never heard of it, but know that i've tapped my foot more than a few times while in a bathroom stall with my ipod on.

    Well you must stop that immediately. :eek: I had never heard of it before the Senator Craig debacle either. It sounds crazy to me too. Most gay men I know are germaphobes who think any bathroom sex is gross.

    Apparently foot tapping is a 'signal/code' and that is what alerted the policeman in the next stall that a gay man was next to him and horny.:rolleyes::tongue: This was even the basis of an episode on According to Jim.

    The whole tearoom phenomenon has been around longer than any of us have been around. There's was a book published originally in 1970 called Tearoom Trade that goes into great detail. Interesting read.

    You have to admit there are posts on here about bathroom sex and glory holes.

    One time I was in a stall and heard someone enter the stall next to me and closed the door. A few seconds later a foot nudged its way over into my stall. I was contemplating on what to do. Should I ignore the foot, shit on it, or piss on it? I decided to kick it gently, and when I did he pulled his foot back.

    A few seconds later he sticks his hand under the stall into my area. How dare he invade my sacred space.

    Remember the episode on Seinfeld when Elaine needed toilet paper, and the person in the next stall wouldn't give her any? I grabbed some toilet tissue and put it in his hand.

    He took it, I saw it drop to the floor, and then I heard him leave his stall and slam the door behind him. I finished what I was doing, washed up and left.

    Outside of the bathroom there was a man staring at me. I assumed he was the man in the stall. He gave me the finger. I gave it right back to him. :madfawk:

    Hahaha Italian1... great story (if not a bit unnerving). Guess he wasn't just checking to see if you could "spare a square", eh? :biggrin1:

    It has to do with when you got your first experience and how. There are men I met who wanted me to have a toilet stall experience; I don't find it all romantic, but they did.

    I would gladly have given him as many squares as he requested, if he had asked. Unless he was a mute, he had no right giving me foot and hand signals. :tongue::biggrin1:

    Sometimes these situations can be risky and very costly. I had the mis-fortunte of being in a stall and someone was at the urinal across from the stall. His belt was unbucked and jeans unbuttoned and un-zipped. As he stood at the urnial I could see and hear his belt buckle juggling. Then I could see him peering into my stall through the seams around the door of the stall. Being a wise guy, I stated wanking on my cock and it became erect. He then moved away from the urinal and stood outside the door of my stall peeping throgh the seam. I then simulated jerking- off with exaggerated strokes.

    Next thing, two plain clothes men were looking down on me from the stalls on each side of me as they stood on the toilet and looked over the partition as I was wiping my butt and there was someone else outside of the stall door pushing on it to get it opened and they escorted me out of the bathroom in cuffs and took me to another location and wrote up a summons. I had to get a lawyer and appear in court. It cost me lots of money for the lawyer to get this settled.

    One has to be careful.

    Yikes! I agree, he was way too pushy. :mad: I wonder if lesbians are as aggressive and overbearing in their approach as gay men. :confused:


    Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

    I guess I was born with natural rhythmn (may be mispslled?) and played percussion in the band. So, anytime I hear a good beat, I tap my feet to the music. Actually, I tape my big toes inside my shoes more but it's still a little obvious. My band director asked me more than once to hold my body still a little more when I feel the beat.

    Just recently, I had to use the toilet facilities in a store and had to watch my self since the music being piped in was loud and bouncy.

    I'm with Dirty Videophile. Life is never better than when wearing baggy pants, suspenders, and comfortable tab shoes! Buck wing, heel toe, turn . . . buck wing. . . buck wing. . . heel, heel, toe, toe -- repeat!

    If you can't tap, your missing 90% of the joy of life!

    What was the charge? Surely you can't be arrested for having a wank in a cubicle with the door closed? Also, it seems to me that what the plain-clothes officers were doing was enticement!

    Thanks guys I was thinking I was pretty naive about this.
    I also catch myself tapping and although I've never been approached maybe have had someone look at me at the sink thinking I'm a Senator.

    There must be someone out there who does this though.
    oh and what's a tearoom?

    He had a nerve slamming the door then flipping you off. It happened to me once in a bathroom at a family theme park, I was standing at a urinal and he was in the stall to my left, I noticed his fingers motioning thru this small gap at me, so I pissed through the gap that I saw his beady eye looking at me through onto the guy, he yelled and ran out pulling up his pants. I realize that it takes all kinds and adventure can be exciting, but not with a total stranger in a public toilet, at least not for me. As for the signals that they use, it can be foot
    tapping, throat clearing or motioning to you or even rubbing themselves outright thru their clothing. I'd rather do it in a honey bucket with a crowd outside of it waiting to go in at an outdoor concert... LOL! (kidding!)

    Anyone simply tapping their foot isn't doing this. They usually tap and slowly move their foot under the divider wall to get the attention of the person in the next stall. They may also slide their hand under the divider to make gestures to the person. That's what Sen. Craig's situation was so contrived. He just dug his own grave deeper with every ridiculous comment he made. He said he had a 'wide stance' on the toilet. When is the last time you were minding your own business and your 'stance' was so incredibly wide that your foot entered the next stall??? Innocently tapping your foot along to music or whatever wouldn't constitute the same foot tapping that we're talking about here.

    This has been around as a way for (usually) closeted men to get anonymous sex. It's been happening for a LONG time. Definitely nothing new at all.

    As far as the legality, while people may be arrested on something like a lewd action violation, from what I gather they are rarely formally charged. It's very hard to solidly prove guild and borderline entrapment if they person is encouraged to do the behavior. Masturbating certainly isn't illegal and there is an assumed level of privacy that is expected in a bathroom stall.

    In a way it's similar to those Dateline 'To Catch a Predator' episodes. While I definitely don't condone what they're doing, it's VERY difficult to build a solid case against those people given the partially unethical way they are caught. The vast majority of those people are never charged or charged with a simple misdemeanor.

    That question brings back memories! I had never heard that expression until I came out. This neighbor was always called a "tearoom queen" so I asked why? Thinking he had a love for the beverage, I found out he loved bathroom sex. He'd go to a particular department store bathroom with his paper shopping bag (the rather large kind with rope handles) and if he found an interested participant, he's have him stand in the bag inside the stall with the door closed and suck them off. That way if someone walked in, they wouldn't see two pair of feet. :tongue:

    njqt466,

    I believe it is extremely rare for any women, lesbians or straight, to solicit sex in a public restroom. I have never heard of such a thing happening. Lesbians, more stereotypically, become way over-the-top emotionally involved and way too quickly, in their relationships. They are like the antithesis of the anonymous sex thing.

    I believe you are more straight than I am. Did you even hear about a straight woman, other than a "professional", soliciting sex in a public restroom?
