This chapter presents analyses of the sex marketplaces of Latino bisexual men in New York City between 2000 and 2009. Chapter aims are to identify the role that sexual marketplaces play in the sexual lives of Latino bisexual young men, particularly the impact of historical and geographic differences, as well as their implications for HIV prevention research and interventions. The following overriding research question was explored: what are the political, technological, and social enabling conditions that have produced the behavioral differences from 2000 to 2009 that we have observed? More specifically, how do male friendship groups function as mechanisms of “intimate surveillance” vis-à-vis sexual partner selection, and what are the digital platforms (e.g., cell phones, Internet cruising) that enable these interactions? How might we frame these “local sexual cultures” within what we refer to as “intimate/participatory surveillance,” and what social philosopher Gilles Deleuze has called “societies of control”?

Keywords:   bisexuality, local sexual cultures, sexual marketplaces, societies of control, sexual cultures
