What does your gay cruise site say about you?

imageThere’s a never-ending supply of virtual gloryholes out there to get your gay on, from the dominant Manhunt to newcomer Grindr. But what does your hookup site say about you? Here’s a handy guide.

Manhunt is taking a bit of a privacy hit later this month as it rolls out the ability to search profiles without logging in. So Gawker took a look at virtual bathhouses and who’s drawn to what. They took a look at a few others here, too.

Here’s the recap of who uses what; take a look at the full post for even more, ahem, juicy details.

Grindr: Young, tech-savvy guys and men who are such horndogs that they need to carry a bathhouse in their pocket.

Adam 4 Adam: Creative types with jobs that don’t make a lot of money, and those with money who think they’re too good to pay for sex.

Daddyhunt: Old guys (sorry, “silver foxes”) and young bottoms looking to either get roughed up or snag a meal ticket.

Rentboy: Hookers.

imageFind Fred: Early adopters, desperate 30-somethings, and those guys who pretend to want a BF but really want a BJ.

Atomic Men: Guys in LA who have worked through everyone on Manhunt.

Craigslist: Trolls, meth addicts, and “Str8 guys.”

Manhunt: Just about every gay with an internet connection.
