    I couldn't bear to think of my husband doing something like that.... Eeek

    Google cruising g.ays (without the full stop) and the area you live in. It's eye opening...apparently even the change room at my gym is a good place to meet (and then go elsewhere to satisfy each other...or just have a w.ank if no one takes you up on the offer).

    The playground thing of a night doesn't really bother me. I know a lot of hetrosexuals who have public s.ex in playgrounds. Not so much now, but as teenagers, absolutely. Especially for my friends who weren't allowed to do anything under their parents roof...they'd go for a walk and relieve their tension on a slide or sitting on a swing or whatever. I'm not naive enough to think that died with my generation. There's a very popular beach car park near me...always plenty of cars there after dark, parked a good distance away from each other. Pretty sure they're not there for the view.
    I was surprised by how many local beats there are near me, but I just figure they're obviously being extremely discrete...there were lots of warning about being careful of families, or straight men in high traffic areas. A lot of the men who frequent beats generally don't want to 'out' themselves. As much as it would be awful for the wives to find out, I also think it's quite sad for the men that are frequenting these places because they don't feel they can be honest about their sexuality in their life. It's tragic.

    To be fair, they're not going to approach your husband with his daughter in tow. And in a shopping centre they'd be behind closed doors so your daughter wouldn't see anything.

    As soon as I started reading this thread I thought 'Bet that's why the park across the road is so high traffic at night.'

    Sure enough!

    ETA: I always thought it was drug dealers. This makes me feel a lot safer.

    Its still inappropriate. In an area with kids around is wrong in my books.

    My sister was always REALLY worried whenever her son went into public toilets (he's 21 now) and I never had a clue what she was on about, and thought shewas totally paranoid! Even now it never crosses my mind when my boys go into the toilets, should I be worried??? I usually use McDonalds ones, or shopping centre ones, very rarely toilets by themselves in kinda deserted places.

    I've learned so much I never wanted to know from this thread!!!

    And like another pp said, her gay friend said most of his hook ups were married men. I mentioned it as it has been suggested it is not 'safe s.ex'. I realise doing it in a dirty public toilet also wouldn't be considered safe. Yes it could be a random act but condoms don't prevent all sti's. I have gay friends and have worked with (public health) many HIV+ members of the gay community. A lot of them are very big on educating eachother and and their s.exual partners in the importance of regular checks.

    OMG that remings me of that thread about a childcare centre that advertised swingers parties after hours!!!
