Police Risk from Local Gay Cruising

Meeting hot, horny guys in a public place can be a liberating and exciting experience.

Making eye contact at a gay bar, out on the street, or in the gay community with someone wanting to have sex can be a thrilling and liberating experience. However, you need to exercise caution.

Some countries, states, provinces, and municipalities have laws that forbid public sex and getting caught cruising could cause legal trouble.

When you’re cruising, make sure you know local laws, trust your instincts, be aware of your surroundings, and keep cruising etiquette in mind.

Although many countries have taken progressive steps towards what is acceptable in the privacy of one’s bedroom or romantic life, many areas are more restrictive regarding sexuality outside of the bedroom.

Many areas have laws against public indecency, and as a result, having sex in a place where others might see you hold risks.

Though the fear of getting caught can be a huge turn on, police can and still do cruise undercover for gay sex in parks and other places.

Plus, they may not be obligated to inform you that they are law enforcement. If you get arrested and feel entrapped, be sure to consult with an attorney.

How Stay Safe in Gay Cruising Spots

It’s vital that when you’re cruising, you look out for your well-being and the well-being of others.

When you’re going out to a gay cruising spot, whether it is a public park, sex outdoors, public bathroom or public toilets, bathhouse, sauna, locker room or gym, or theatre, make sure you tell a trusted friend where you are going and bring your cell phone.

Always carry a current picture ID card because, in some areas, it may lower your chances of being arrested – an officer may simply fine you, depending on local laws.

When in doubt about the legality of sex in certain places, it’s best to do a bit of research to make sure you’re protected.

When cruising, you also need to look out for your safety. Always use protection for safe sex, like condoms and lube, and be wary of meeting other guys who offer your open containers of alcohol or hits of drugs. Illicit drug users have much higher odds of contracting STIs, and substance use can impair decision making, increasing your risk of exposure to STIs or making poor decisions when cruising for gays.

Certain substances can also facilitate sexual assault, and gay and bisexual men are not immune to sexual assault, date rape, and other forms of assault.

Finally, be wary of gay men who seem younger than they’ve told you they are. The age of consent varies by region and often differs between vaginal and anal sex – meaning that someone may be above the traditional “age of consent” but below the age of consent for anal sex.

Make sure you confirm someone’s age if you are unsure, and if you’re still not convinced, it is best not to take the risk, or you could face legal action.

If you find yourself in a situation where you were lied to about someone’s age, speak to an attorney.

How to Get Support and Legal Advice About Cruising

If you get arrested in real life for being less than discrete in your sexual exploits in a gay cruising spot, stay calm and deal with the situation rationally.

Give the police officer your picture ID, but remember that you are not obligated to answer questions without an attorney present in most places.

Get yourself a qualified attorney and rely on them to help you with options regarding fines, jail time, or other penalties.

The best way to avoid legal trouble when cruising for sex is to consider many factors.

First of all, know the laws in your area regarding sex, consent, and public indecency – you will then be able to judge what kinds of sex you are or aren’t willing to participate in and better protect yourself.

If a guy seems suspicious in any way, it’s best to avoid him for your legal and personal safety.

Secondly, be aware of your surroundings and pay attention to your gut instincts. Some cruising spots, such as saunas, carry less legal risk, while others may have more.

Lastly, when you meet up in person with an online flame, make sure a trusted friend knows where you’ll be and when you expect to be back.
