Description - Cruising Culture by Ben Gove

Gove analyzes promiscuity within American gay culture and the root assumptions and contradictions that contribute to dominant understandings of promiscuous sex and desire. He challenges the normative dichotomy of "bad" gay male promiscuity and "good" heterosexual monogamy and presents a wider overview of American attitudes towards sexual practice and desire. The author draws on the autobiographical fiction and memoirs of three influential authors from the early 1960s onwards: John Rechy, Larry Kramer and David Wojnarowicz, as well as other queer critical, historical and fictional viewpoints to illustrate the argument.
