Work in progress. 2016 - 2017
The sexual interactions between men in public places and bathrooms are part of the gay culture. In Brazil, in the 19th century, the final period of the Empire, men were already registered in flagrante delicto. The subject was even Master's thesis. 2017 and the practice of "dogging" continues as a big escape for homosexuals, bisexuals and, especially, for those who live a life “in the closet” or even for heterosexuals. There are parks, trails, dark streets, squares, viaducts and public bathrooms. The map of anonymous and public makeout in São Paulo is broad. Anonymous is the result of two years of research and interviews with men of all the sexual orientations that practice the "dogging" in the capital of São Paulo and the registry of the places where the practice happens. Places where official identities are most of the time forbidden. And where being anonymous guarantees pleasure without bonding or involvement.
