There is only very limited research on the sexual landscapes of Latino bisexuals. This is in part due to the structural barriers confronted by expressions of bisexuality in Latino cultures in the United States and elsewhere. This chapter looks at the “erotic landscapes” of bisexually active Latino men in New York City. The concept of erotic landscapes is used as a way of linking what might be described as “sexual geography” (the spatial organization of sexual experience) with “sexual culture” (the symbolic meanings and representations associated with sexual conduct in different social and cultural settings. A case study of the sexual life of one informant is presented from his first sexual encounter at the age of fifteen into his twenties, and the implications for the prevention of HIV infection and sexually transmitted infections are discussed. A salient point is that public venues for sexual activity do not necessarily increase HIV risk.
