Heads Up Listing

This section for alerts is the place where we help one another learn about current police operations and other forms of bashing.

When you submit a tip on any crusingforsex.com Sex Listing, you can indicate if it belongs in this section by selecting the 'Head's Up' option. Throughout our Sex Listings pages you may find this notation, 'Head's Up'. This indicates that we have reports of police action or bashing at that location.

CFS recognizes that there is an appropriate place for police to protect the public, including cruisers. However, we will report on enforcement of "victimless crimes" where cruisers are targeted by police.

Get the ACLU Mobile Justice App currently for 17 states and the District of Columbia. You have the right to record what happens with police.

To read legal opinion about the civil rights of cruisers, we suggest the resources of the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund and the American Civil Liberties Union.

Lambda Legal's undated 2000s version of their Little Black Book is excellent and deals directly with the rights of men who cruise, although there is a changing legal environment regarding cruising in some parts of the USA. The Lambda Legal link changed. It's also on Google (1993 version) at Little Black Book and the more recent version is in our archive. También en español..

The American Civil Liberties Union has a wallet-size guide, applicable to citizens of the USA, that deals with how you should respond whenever you encounter the police. This version is from 2010, and it applies with this 'Heads Up' page revision, October 2015: You can download a the 2010 version of the card from their Website. La ACLU también tiene esto sin la tarjeta en español. This link also changes, and you can find the English-language card in our archive.

Danger! The Mountain Brook Police Department are now monitoring the wet areas. They have arrested two people so far for lewd conduct. While I was there a Mountain Brook police officer came by and opened he doors to the steam room and sauna.

Do not try anything here. You could end up going to jail because someone may not like you and could say you were doing stuff. Just avoid the wet areas until things settle down. It is not worth going to jail over getting a bj.

A man was arrested after being "allegedly caught in the middle of a sex act in a bathroom" and then leading park rangers and deputies on a low-speed chase Monday, October 26. He faces several charges in the incident, among them a misdemeanor in the unnamed sex act.

The man's name was published in the local news. He pleaded not guilty the next day and is no longer in the county jail. Rangers have had two sting operations this year, most recently on October 7, and will continue to patrol the park.

Buck Creek State Park
Three men were arrested here in an undercover operation by The Clark County Sheriff's Office October 7, 2015. Names and photos were publicized on local TV. From the final story:

According to officials the men were touching themselves, one man even touching the officer.

“We hope that we're sending the message that this type of conduct will not be tolerated in our community and if it is your going to suffer the consequences,” said Sheriff Gene Kelly, Clark County.

Sheriff Kelly says many of the men use social media to connect, then meet at the park. He sees at least a dozen of these cases every year.

Some park patrons 2 NEWS spoke with say they know the park is known for men soliciting sex, but it doesn't stop them from coming to the park.

I pulled in and noticed several guys chatting in the gravel lot by the fishing pond and casually pulled in nearby to see what was happening.

I noticed one guy was in a car with a pizza chain's light on top, like delivery drivers use. He got something out of his car and I noticed a Sheriff's Department vest in the back seat. After watching them a while, noticed other guys had them too.

I'm not sure what they were up to, but thought it was worth reporting. It may have just been a plan for a bust elsewhere since they all left at once.


Thank for posting this. I'll leave this as a "possible Heads Up" although I hope the local law enforcement have learned a lesson from the previous incident and nationwide bad publicity. ~ Editor

I just read Neil Kaiser's post. I had the exact same experience. I was in the restroom alone. When I walked out, an undercover cop stopped me. I told him I wasn't doing anything. He said that he knew what I was going to do.

I ended up in the Arlington jail and I was harassed as soon as I got to the door. I too have an indecent exposure conviction on my record. Never cruise in Randall Mill Park.

The store was raided again by Clarksville Police in mid-September accompanied by a local TV news crew filming. It isn't clear if any store patrons were arrested. The store itself was issued citations. Police say that raids will continue.The news story goes into some detail about the booths, the button that the clerk pushed allegedly to warn patrons of the raid, and among other statements, a police office saying, "There's people in there, you know, committing crimes, you know, indecent exposure and public nudity and things like that inside the open theater area..." including what the officer called "fantasy booths" with holes drilled in the walls: "They have holes and other means of access for one booth to contact another booth."See: Clarksville Police raid Theatair X, issue more than a dozen citations Sep 28 2015

A September 1 meeting of the city council heard complaints from nearby residents, including a city council member, of "sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll and reckless driving” — like Bette Midler in "The Rose" on wheels! After the meeting the Mayor spoke with the Sheriff's Department Lieutenant in charge of patrols for San Clemente. It was announced there would be more patrols and monitoring in the area which will become a "more systematic approach” in October. “Your average patrolman is not going to be able to curb this.”

It sounds like most of the complaints are connected to generally rowdy behavior, but if you happen to be in the area be aware.

Campus public ground is not safe for action. There are cameras everywhere and the police force is increasing. It is safe if you contact first then go to their dorm but that's not cruising anymore.


IMHO, cruising is any way you meet unplanned in a public or semi-public place and then have sex. Picking someone up in a bar might not be exactly the same, but it would still be a cruise bar.

When I lived in the DC area many years ago I remember meeting guys on the Metro, walking around a neighborhood, even in the Safeway. There was also "P Street Beach" and many other parks and toilets, not to mention sexclubs or backrooms or whatever.

Of course they were strangers and of course in many situations you had to take it somewhere else. You couldn't fuck someone in the Produce Department, after all. It all happened in the moment with that "knowing look" or the guy who turned around and looked back at you when you also turned around and looked at him.

Perhaps definitions are changing in this Age of Apps, but any sort of non-virtual unplanned sexual thing that starts person to person in some specific place is a cruisy place to me. ~ Editor

I forget what day I stopped here, but I went inside. I stood around for about two minutes and decided to hookup with this Asian guy who gave me a blowjob. Around 2:30 am several men came in and sat down some looking like hobos and some who were very attractive.

I was sitting in my seat on my phone, when all of a sudden two police officers came in without warning shining flashlights on crotches. Nobody was doing anything so they left, but not even ten minutes had gone by when the same two officers burst in the theatre again shining their flashlights.

I'm not sure if they were trying to catch someone doing lewd acts or looking for someone. That was the sign for me to get the hell out of there before I end up doing something I would regret and end up in jail!

A report from early July reveals that a Columbia police officer was responding to resident reports of "guys meeting up and playing around" in the park near Gist Street by stepping up patrols for the rest of the Summer.

The officer said he spent an hour a day at the park and had seen, daily, "between 15 to 20 cars accessing the area. He says the men are between 25- 30 years of age or older."

While sunning in the buff on the Hill, I and another guy got the opportunity to meet two Iowa Department of Natural Resources Officers. After being asked, errrr I mean TOLD to put clothing on, I got questioned, escorted to my car in order to get my driver's license which was ran through the system, and eventually I was allowed to leave. Per the officers, there is greater attention being made to the Hill due to reports of lewd acts in public, drug trafficking, and prostitution. Personally, I can't speak to the last two items.

The officer who was questioning me confirmed that sunbathing naked on the Hill is NOT against the law as long there is no lewd sex act going on and/or I'm not erect. What was strange was that the other guy was not caught naked but was still in discussion with the IDNR as I drove off. Must be something more there.

So for those who frequent the back trails, keep your eyes and ears open. And for those who take in the rays naked, don't have yourself in a discernibly turgid state.

The other reviewers are correct. Do not cruise here. Big time undercover police action pretty much all the time. Also, Settlers Cabin Park is one of the parks that will now employ Park Rangers. Therefore, there will always be a "police" presence of some sort here. Jun 18 2015

LA Fitness is not a good place to cruise. I believe last year or the year before a teacher was arrested and prosecuted for cruising at one of the LA Fitness locations. Apparently he approached a minor (the boy was 17) in the sauna or steam room. The kid reported him and the management had him arrested. Then a couple other LA Fitness clients added their complaints to the police report. The teacher went to jail and is a registered child molester.

Cruising in health and fitness clubs are dangerous now because clubs like LA Fitness and others allow children 16 and over to join the club. Therefore, minors are now allowed in the adult men's locker rooms. The clubs are targeting kids because they want the business and the money. Some of these clubs now have day care and after school programs in them. So now, kids ranging in a variety of ages are allowed in the locker rooms and are able to use the facilities.

Fifteen or twenty years ago that was not the case. The old YMCA used to have a separate level for adults and kids. If you want to cruise a gym or locker room, best to go to Club Pittsburgh.There are no children there.

Yes, the trees are being replaced in the fruit loop because of oak wilt, but there is another problem. The Mayor has employed Park Rangers. Schenley Park will now be patrolled by Park Rangers as well as police, who as we know, work undercover as well. It was mentioned on the news that the Park Rangers will not be armed. Even though they are not "police" per se, I still think that they will be able to detain a person and call police if they think people are there engaging in inappropriate behavior. Jun 18 2015

I was in the park last night, Sunday. It was quiet but there were some men. At some point, maybe around 11 pm, huge portable floodlights on generators cranked up and lit the place up. I continued to think that was all and continued to walk and cruise.

There were lots of questionable guys with backpacks. Undercover cops? Finally I heard movement in a wooded area and went to investigate. I was followed by a cute guy who I was feeling up when a flashlight came on 15 feet away in the bushes and someone said, "Don't move." I ran outta there.

So the Ramble is off limits now at night. Be careful and move it out of there for now.
