There are no stupid questions, right?

I just want to know what it is with Republican "values" politicians who happen to have a little penchant for homosexual experimentation that makes them go look for it in a PUBLIC BATHROOM?

Is it the "danger" element that turns them on?

Haven't they heard of escort services? Or are they too cheap or worried about blackmail or what?

Yeah, yeah, you can be anonymous there but then you can also get arrested by a plainclothes cop, too. I don't get it.

Update: Oh, good. I'm not the only one asking.


  1. Public bathroom sex has its own place in gay male culture although it's relegated to a sordid role that isn't often vocalized in public conversation. The reason for this is that it lends itself well to stereotyping of gay men as hyper-sexual and amoral.

    It is often thought of as super sleazy.

    To answer your question, I think part of it is the danger aspect and part of it is a desire for instant gratification.

    This article might shed some light on the practice.

    Yeah it's just amazing isn't it? All that bloviating about family values and Jeebus, and then the moment they think no one is looking their judgement goes out the window. And these people somehow want to voters to believe that they're qualified to make serious policy decisions.

    I'm kinda amazed he didn't blame the foot tapping on Restless Leg Syndrome. Then he could have run out the old one about how he's under a dr's care for the problem.

  11. Remember, this guy really isn't gay in any real sense. He identifies with the straight community. These bathroom blowjobs are just a harmless little relaxation he indulges in occasionally.

    As a result, when he's caught he doesn't know how to behave.

    He's so deeply a shamed that he doesn't even want to tell a lawyer about his problem, even though a lawyer could have made it go away in an untraceable way.

    Worse,, he doesn't have the benefit of having heard about ways and means of dealing with these situations that have beendeveloped inn the gay community.

    So he tries to deal with the problem himself, and hope no one will notice. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that he's been caught before and got himself off with nobody noticing.

    That said, he ought to be ashamed of himself. For the sleazy encounter, but even
