When it comes to gay culture, the term "cruising" doesn't mean taking a leisurely boat trip, exotic sea voyage, or oceanic journey. It means something quite different.
Filed under "Gay/Nature/Photography," Cruising by Chad States (with text by Gordon Grent Ingram, Ph.D., and Alec Soth) is a visual exploration of the eponymous practice, whether conducted in far-off parks, public restrooms, or secluded woodlands.
The 100-page hardcover features 80 full-color photographs that investigate the mysterious, but no less mammalian, sexual practice.
Cruising is available for order here.
