Gay Sex In The 70’s

 “Totally hot... Gloriously salacious... One long sex party” ★★★★ GT

“A fascinating glimpse at a decade of Bacchanalian excess” ★★★★ Out In The City

They took MDMA and danced the night away. If you were in the mood for pure sex, there were the bathhouses. And if total sleaze was your aim, there were the piers, the Anvil or Mineshaft, places where men simply wanted to have sex with other men with no pretence. Gay Sex in the 70's is a stunning visual document of New York during the decade of gay liberation and sexual abandon following Stonewall and before the outbreak of AIDS. Gay men cruised the streets, frequented gay bars, and, of course, had loads and loads of sex everywhere. From Greenwich Village to the Fire Island Pines, Gay Sex in the 70's celebrates a city and an era with the unbridled joy that characterised the decade.
