PEEK: Inside the Private World of Public Sex is an up close and personal look at impersonal sex, exploring where-to, how-to, and when-to have sex in public. This educational and instructive guide reveals the steamy world of sex in bathhouses, gyms, parks, peep shows, swinger’s clubs, men’s rooms, and cruising on the Internet. The book provides interviews of a broad range of men discussing their diverse sexual escapades, from traditional to the definitely nontraditional. PEEK is an essential guide for anyone fascinated with—and wanting to find—gay sex in the 21st century.
