Foot Tapping = Cruising for Sex?

foot-tap.jpg In an article by ABC News talking about Larry Craig, a US senator who was arrested for an alleged sex offense, I quote:

…there is a secret world of sex between men that exists in public places across the country… Public places like men’s restrooms, in airports and train stations, truck stops, university libraries and parks, have long been places where gay and bisexual men, particularly those in the closet, congregate in order to meet for anonymous sex.

Then about this secret signal: foot tapping

“Tapping of the foot is pretty standard for men who cruise in toilets,” said Keith Griffith, owner of, a Web site on which visitors post locations popular with men looking for anonymous sex. “They will usually go to the stall at the far end of the strip of toilets. They will see each other and usually decide to go someplace else. The vast majority have no interest in being seen. They may be meeting in public locations, but they will be as discreet as possible,” Griffith said.

Honestly, I have not really cruised for sex in public places, so please excuse my ignorance in these things. (By the way, please do NOT treat this as an encouragement to cruise in public places!) This is just out of curiousity… so let me ask these questions:
Does this “foot tapping” also apply here in the Philippines? Here in the Manila Gay Scene? What are the other cruising secret signals gay men normally use here?

  2. wrestler Says:

    the “look” (along with the “look back”) is what works here.

    hey i always get that, i would look at someone then he would stare back for a long time, pero I had an experience which i guess traumatized me and never again na nakipagtitigan ako, I was at a bar I was looking at this good looking guy, tagal sya tumititig pabalik, tapos bigla sumayaw sya konti then tinaas ang kamay na closed fist na parang mambubugbog. so after that ayoko na makipagtitigan! :(

    stay longer in the public urinal… then wait for lustful glances side by side… hehehe…

  5. fattyacid Says:

    hindi ko naexperience ang ganyan…

    saka the idea of doing it in a public place…germs, dirt…STD…awww!

    and i think i have to be thankful for that.

    i have some stories to share in toronto,
    i know a pinoy gay guy got who got stabbed during his escapade in one of the department store bathrooms. apprently, there are some really crazy gay bashers and haters that frequents the place as well. so be very aware coz you just never know.
    another one i heard was about this pinoy guy na talagang makapal ang mukha.apparently, he crawled under the cubicles to get to the guy, not the one beside his cubicle but the next one….haha.
    now my experience, when i was still in one time i was in our school’s washroom . unaware of such activities, i noticed the guy beside me tapping his foot. so i did the same thing. next thing you know i saw the guy’s head peeping under the partition. guess what, it was my classmate.he was sooo embarrased……so , evrytime he leaves our classroom, we look at each other and i will know not to go, hahaha…

    Hindi masyadong uso ang foot tapping dito… baka siguro kasi sanay tayong mga Pinoy magtinikling. Choz.
    Mas prevalent dito yung “makuha ka sa tingin”. As people here have said, the look-and-look-back technique.

  8. jetblue Says:

    i wish i just had telepathy para i know when sum1 luks at me lustfully or not.. to be fair, i do get my share of 10-second stares but ive always been to afraid to follow thru.. takot ako ma-bog award hehe.. there was this cute guy in chicago once, followed me to the restroom, actually struck a conversation and was washing his hands for a million years before i chickened out.. hay, the boys i cudve had..

  9. Quentin X Says:

    I think part of the reason foot tapping may be common outside the Philippines may have something to do with the prevalence of the kind of toilet cubicles where the partitions does not go all the way down the floor. I must admit I have done it a few times before I settled down.

  10. Vin Says:

    Here, it’s always the “look.” Never heard of the foot-tapping thing. Gym wet areas are popular places nowadays for such “looking”.

  11. anton maton Says:

    you dont need to cruise in public places. you hook up through the internet and then you eyeball. that’s all!

    always mahiwaga on the internet,

    not familiar w/ foot tapping d2 sa pinas.

  13. Kai Says:

    YUNG ‘TSK’ or sipping sound… hahaha

  14. jazzie Says:

    i think the look-and-look-back thing plus the staying long at the urinal is quite effective in our country…

    mejo nag lie-low na nga lang ung staying long in the urinal because of the expose na ginananap ata somewhere in lipa where in may group of guys na sabay sabay na nagmamasturbate sa loob ng comfort room ng isang department store…

  15. arsel Says:

    In movie houses, last full show, sundan mo ng tingin ung trip mo. The trick is if he’s into it, malikot ang mata niya and b4 he can find a seat, nakatingin na siya sa u. pag hanggang sa pag-upo niya di niya inalis tingin niya sa u, un na un.

  16. hot_dude Says:

    ahm..foot tapping?, prang 1st time ko lng un narinig ah…pro i agree na ung tinginang un ung cruising for sex, i have actually tried that and it worked, bli npaka-cute nung guy at halatang ang sexy nya..(nka-shorts at tight-hugging shirt cya), so nhuli ko cya na tumingin sa kin.. so nag-cr ako, tpos sumunod cya, and then we peed , but i saw his cock, so nhuli nya ako, and then, aun….tuloy sa kma!

  17. khentutz Says:

    ang alam ko na nag fofoottapping sa cr e ung medyo nahihirapan dumumi, kumukuha ba ng bwelo, hehehe minsan inde rin lahat ng tinginan episode e nauuwi sa pagsisiping, minsan nagtitinginan pero nag aantayan ng first move. Ako hanggang tingin lang kaya ko, but make the first move and who knows. hehe

  18. from1fagtoanother Says:

    Tinginan gets easier as you grow older. Now at 31 chicken na hahaha But when I was younger, I’d rather be dead than be caught staring.

    Malls, Movie houses yeah but I actually have this friend who gets lucky be it in FX’s, churches, funerals, name it.

    Lakasan lang ng loob yan. Suot ka ng pink fish net tank top. Siguro naman obvious na yun and you’ll be cruised na. Bwahaha

  19. LonesomeGayGuy Says:

    I agree with McVie’s comments…fot tapping has never been a part of gay cruising in this archipelago…yes, those lustful stare is enough to persuade one’s prey to give in to one’s advances in a public place!

    been here and there, and i tell u guys…Berlin’s Teirgarten Park tops my list in public sex, day in and day out, specially in the heat of summer!!!

  20. LonesomeGayGuy Says:

    Correction, Tiergarten (literal translation: animal garden) which used to be part of the royal grounds! so, pack and go to fly to Berlin, sofort!!!

    yung pinapatunog yung tongue sa ngala-ngala or habang nakatingin sa ka mirror tititigan ka rin nya sa mirror hanggang tabihan ka nya

  22. xyz Says:

    i think it’s really the look-lookback thing that works here,
    but come to think, it’s over-used… almost everyone in manila’s gay…
    why is that?!
