Despite decades of feminist awareness and activism, women continue to be portrayed in outdoor advertising in a limited and sexist manner. The fact that in public space audiences are exposed to such images without choice, renders the issue an important public policy concern. Sex in Public utilises a large outdoor advertising data collection to examine the contemporary outdoor advertising landscape, documenting the routine portrayal of women as thin, white, young and idle. This book examines why such portrayals are concerning for feminists as well as for public policy, and explores the advertising self-regulation systems that facilitate the display of such images. This book criticises sexist outdoor advertising as a form of sexual harassment given that imagery often bearing very strong semblance to pin-ups which would be outlawed in a workplace are readily displayed in public space, reflecting a troublesome public policy double standard. Understanding sexist outdoor advertising as a form of sexual harassment is a new framework that Sex in Public offers to understand, critique and condemn such images.

The most intelligent and outspoken commentator on sexual politics writing today, Pat Califia has been "fuming and fussing" about censorship and the rights of perverts for more than two decades. Whether writing about gender bending and transsexuality, lesbian relationships, S/M and leather sex, sex between lesbians and gay men, eroticizing latex and safer sex, prostitution, or sex in public, Califia's essays—clear consistent, provocative and eminently readable—set the standard for writing about sex.
"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 in Latin America and the dangers involved -- from murder to HIV infection.
Author: Jacobo Schifter
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.
In the 1800s, urban development efforts modernized Paris and encouraged the creation of brothels, boulevards, cafés, dancehalls, and even public urinals. However, complaints also arose regarding an apparent increase in public sexual activity, and the appearance of "individuals of both sexes with depraved morals" in these spaces. Andrew Israel Ross's illuminating study, Public City/Public Sex, chronicles the tension between the embourgeoisement and democratization of urban culture in nineteenth-century Paris and the commercialization and commodification of a public sexual culture, the emergence of new sex districts, as well as the development of gay and lesbian subcultures. Public City/Public Sex examines how the notion that male sexual desire required suitable outlets shaped urban policing and development. Ross traces the struggle to control sex in public and argues that it was the very effort to police the city that created new opportunities for women who sold sex and men who sought sex with other men. Placing public sex at the center of urban history, Ross shows how those who used public spaces played a central role in defining the way the city was understood.

While sex has been historically a private matter, in the twentieth century it became a public obsession. Beginning in the early 1900s, people widely felt that increased openness about sex was the key to personal fulfillment and happy relationships. Yet this emphasis on the physical has eroded our understanding of the emotional and spiritual dimensions of intimacy. Today, sex has saturated contemporary life through television, movies, books, magazines, videos, tabloids, advertising, and the Internet. Meanwhile, desensitization and sexual dysfunction, obsession with body image, short-lived commitments, and high divorce rates are signs that our deepest private desires remain unfulfilled.We yearn for true connection with the romantic other, and our growing malaise has given rise to nostalgic myths of golden times that never really existed. Patricia Anderson's "Passion Lost", a lively history of sexual mores - from burgeoning sexual concerns of the 20th century's early years, the changing morality of the 1920s and 1930s, the liberties of wartime, and the 1950s' veneer of rectitude, to the freedoms of the following decades - examines those myths and paints a compelling new portrait illustrating how deeply the present is rooted in the past, and how our quest for intimacy has been hijacked by our public obsession with sex.

He was polite and sweet and apologized even though I’d been completely to blame. I still acted like a bitch and it was maddening because he was still polite. Finally, I was really vulgar and he said we should race for the right to use the path during certain hours. I kept arguing. Before I knew it, I was agreeing to let him sleep with me if he won the race! Boy did my mouth get me in trouble. I ended up bent over for a brutal first anal sex experience right in the park!

(When the Stranger Caught Me Naked at the Lake) A Stranger Sex in Public Erotica Story by Andrea Tuppens Nine or ten words. That was the extent of conversation I’d had with Carl so it was crazy to wake up from dozing on my inflatable lounge in the lake to see his cock pointed right at my face! It was the most shocking thing that had ever happened to me, and I had no idea why I opened up and started sucking. It was so damned unlike me! I wanted to smack him but instead I just let him do what he wanted. Right there in the lake he took me, and the sex was rough and powerful and I couldn’t even figure out why I was letting it happen! 3. Performance Art (When My Friend Got Me Screwed in Public!) A Two Girl Gangbang Erotica Story by Skyler French Rosa’s art project was supposed to protest the objectification of women, and I was happy to help even though it meant gradually stripping. It was a bold idea but the truth was that I thought the campus administration would stop us before we got naked. I was wrong. We ended up naked on the table right next to the sign that criticized society for thinking of women as nothing more than holes. Holes. That’s what we were trying to show, and that’s what we became. Before I knew it there was a dick in my mouth, and then one in my pussy, and Rosa was getting the same! 4.

Taken in Public by the Pawn Broker (And When He Took Me, He Took My Backdoor!) A Reluctant First Anal Sex in Public Erotica Story by Savannah Deeds I couldn’t believe the way the pawn broker was trying to cheat me, telling me the beautiful necklace I got at auction was a fake. I was so angry, and as we argued he made a bet. He’d pay me more than I could hope to get if it was real but if it was fake he could have me. I was so angry that I called up one of the best jewelry appraisers in the state. The damned necklace was fake, and Carl wasn’t letting me out of the deal. Right there in his pawn shop, where anyone could have seen us, he made me pay up. I had my first ever anal sex right by the front window of his store!
This enlarged edition of 'Tearoom Trade' includes the original text, together with a retrospect, written by Nicholas von Hoffman, Irving Louis Horowitz, Lee Rainwater, Donald P. Warwick, and Myron Glazer.

From the time of its first publication, 'Tearoom Trade' engendered controversy. It was also accorded an unusual amount of praise for a first book on a marginal, intentionally self-effacing population by a previously unknown sociologist. The book was quickly recognized as an important, imaginative, and useful contribution to our understanding of "deviant" sexual activity. Describing impersonal, anonymous sexual encounters in public restrooms—"tearooms" in the argot—the book explored the behavior of men whose closet homosexuality was kept from their families and neighbors. By posing as an initiate, the author was able to engage in systematic observation of homosexual acts in public settings, and later to develop a more complete picture of those involved by interviewing them in their homes, again without revealing their unwitting participation in his study. This enlarged edition of 'Tearoom Trade' includes the original text, together with a retrospect, written by Nicholas von Hoffman, Irving Louis Horowitz, Lee Rainwater, Donald P. Warwick, and Myron Glazer. The material added includes a perspective on the social scientist at work and the ethical problems to which that work may give rise, along with debate by the book's initial critics and proponents. Humphreys added a postscript and his views on the opinion expressed in the retrospect.

Sexuality remains a hotly debated subject, nowhere more so than in education. This perceptive and balanced book shows that discussions of sexuality and schooling can be simultaneously polarizing and democratizing. Disputing the Subject of Sex examines controversies over sex, AIDS, and gay-inclusive multicultural education, which offer especially fruitful opportunities to explore instances when community membership, schooling, and sexuality have collided. Rather than choosing sides, this book uses case studies, interviews with queer youth, and analysis of curricular texts to help readers understand how power dynamics play out in educational controversies and how they can guide us to new ideas about students' abilities to learn and relate ethically to one another about the subject of sex.
