    Interesting article in Village Voice about the decline of public sex in New York. It seems that younger people just aren't as interested in the wild debauchery of their elders. The author claims that younger people, being more liberated, are focusing on the issues of marriage, having children, and serving openly in the military. The mayor's crackdown on sex venues hasn't helped either.

    I suggest reading the rest of the story as it's a fascinating look into the changing mores of New York's gay scene.

    Hmm, one of the things that strikes me about this article is that it seems to miss an obvious reason for the decline of what they call "gay public sex":

    Historically, many gay men sought bathhouses, because they were not out to their roommates (...or wives!), and therefore didn't have a place to bring their partners. The prevalence of gay public sex was due to the lack of opportunity for gay private sex. As we've succeeded in lessening the stigma of coming out (and especially so in New York City), more gay men are able to bring partners home. For the deeply closeted, "dating" wasn't even an option.

    This isn't necessarily a shift in attitude like the writer suggests, but an expansion of opportunity and an increase in the number of available options.

    That's an interesting perspective and very reasonable in my estimation. I feel cheated though. Having missed out on the golden years of wild public gay sex only to find that nobody is doing it now that I can, doesn't make me a happy guy. I think we've lost something there. Perhaps the prevalence of nice and fun gay bath houses in cities elsewhere, like Cleveland, mean there's less acceptance? I wonder if there's a correlation?
