In a city as large as New York it is easy to be invisible, and he uses that anonymity to enjoy the most deliciously brief encounters.
Innumerable and unknown men pass by him on a daily basis, but the instances when they connect are what he craves.
In the 60’s being open is not accepted and often dangerous, but that does not stop men from seeking the release they hunger for. Public restrooms are everywhere; parks, subways, train depots, and he is fairly certain he has been in most if not all of them. There is nothing more exciting or exhilarating for him than the rush that comes with meeting a stranger and fulfilling each other’s needs.
This story has an inexplicable note of eroticism that comes from doing something just a little bit dirty and dangerous. I like that this man does not apologize or try to make excuses for what he enjoys, and how he goes about it. You wish for him to make a real connection with someone, but for some people that is not what they want or need. There is a rather brutal honesty to this story that makes me want to get to know this character and get inside his head.
