Breaking news: Obama was re-elected. Did anyone notice that this happened a year and a half ago? The article is dated April 2012. We talked about it on the forums since the MB glory hole in question has been infamous since the pre-Stonewall days.
The_Guruburu saidCan you imagine the risk these brave men in uniform are taking when doing these undercover operations? Must be overwhelming compared to fighting you know, actual crime in Downtown LA.
Yeah, let's be thankful those police departments have their priorities right.
I know the head of L.A.'s library foundation, and he is very gay friendly. The library busts occurred because of complaints from workers and patrons; the LAPD was obliged to respond. If the guys had been more discreet -- like they were for the past fifty years -- there would have been no busts.
I think public sex is hot, but the word "public" should refer to location, not to forcing others to witness your sex acts due to your carelessness. Guys are getting bolder and less responsible -- a result I think of our culture's disregard for privacy due to the rise of voyeurism and social networking.
And having spent my entire post-grad 20s living in a beach bungalow right at the border of Hermosa/Manhattan (slice of heaven btw), I can assure you the officers there have nothing to do besides this. My roommates and I slept with our doors unlocked and our windows open, it's so safe there. Being an officer or firefighter in those beach towns is probably one of the world's best jobs.
Public sex means accepting the risks and taking responsibility for ones own choices. If you get caught, own it.
