The baths shouldn't be a footnote to our heritage yet particularly a vital part of it and what's interesting
is that many males who might by no means set foot in a homosexual bar might stopover at the bathhouses. Communication

for many this can be how and the place we met. Amos Lassen
Rumaker an unique prose writer of significant shamed heroic sensitivity has taken up his pen
again to explain a hidden mental & actual fact. As an previous intercourse fiend from the
baths myself I’m thankful & relieved to determine via his eyes and think through his physique. Allen Ginsberg
Rumaker offers us anything even more than a well-crafted elaboration on a distinct second in time.
He seems to be past the twelve hours his personality spends on the baths. He imagines man’s lusty tribal
past reawakened into being via a messy mass orgy and provides a few attainable futures for eros in a culture
that turns out decided to harness it for any objective except excitement and rob it of its power. A Day
and an evening within the Baths makes sense, curious, unsentimental, and but really endearing. This reprinted edition
is a welcome reminder that even within the period of AIDS, the place warning and precaution are advisable,
being specially promiscuous should be releasing, instructive, attractive, invigorating, exciting, and
need no longer be tagged as addictive, compulsive habit. Rob Stephenson, writer of Passes Through
