Cruising for sex , or cruising , is walking or driving about a locality, called a cruising ground , in search of a sex partner , usually of the anonymous , casual , one-time variety. According to historian and author Tim Blanning , the term cruising originates from the Dutch equivalent kruisen. In a specifically sexual context, the term “cruising” originally emerged as an argot “code word” in gay slang , by which those “in the know” would understand the speaker’s unstated sexual intent, whereas most heterosexuals , on hearing the same word in the same context, would normally misread the speaker’s intended meaning in the word’s more common nonsexual sense. This served and in some contexts, still serves as a protective sociolinguistic mechanism for gay men to recognize each other, and avoid being recognized by those who may wish to do them harm in broader societies noted for their homophobia. In the latter half of the twentieth century, decriminalization of homosexual behaviour increasingly became the norm in English-speaking countries. The protective barrier once provided by the term “cruising” as a “code word” has therefore largely broken down and, arguably, become increasingly irrelevant. Thus the specifically sexual meaning of the term has passed into common usage to include the sexual behavior of heterosexual persons, as well. Public health officials have noted that cruising locations are frequented by men who have sex with men , but do not identify with being homosexual or bisexual, who are closeted, married, or in relationships with women, do not date men or frequent gay bars, clubs or websites, or have otherwise no other way of meeting men for sex. The cruising places are often considered meeting places for men who are otherwise living more conventional lifestyles.
