We all know about "gay" creative professions like fashion, interior design, acting that typically attracts a disproportionately high amount of gay men in the field.
But on the flip side of that coin, do mostly-male-only-oriented careers disproportionately attract a different type of gay man (truck-driving/military/firefighter/policeman). Jobs where there is little to no contact with females or female coworkers?
Truck-drivers seem especially gay. These burly guys seem to love glory-holes in bathrooms and hooking up at rest-stops across the US. Are a lot of truck drivers gay?
Rock Hudson was a truck driver when he was "discovered" by Henry Willson.
A friend of mine hooked up with a trucker years ago. He was closeted, though (the trucker, not my friend)
Isn't the trucker sex story in The Night Listener based on one of Maupin's experiences?
I remember seeing some tv program/docu about truckers and a few interviewed said yes, a lot of them are gay. Having a wife and family is not easy when one is on the road for months at a time, so men who have no commitments tend to gravitate towards that kind of work. From other stuff I have seen and read, they also prefer to hook up with their own, ie other truckers.
I don't think so. I don't know any gay guys that wear a mullet
I've been reading lately that truck driving is a profession that draws serial killers because they are able to drive all over the US, hook up with drifters and runaways easily and then dump the bodies in far flung areas to avoid getting caught.
I think truck driving might attract closeted gay men or non-stereotypical gay men. It's not a job that's conducive to child-rearing or long-term relationships, and you probably interact with a lot of similarly-minded men. Also: truckstops.
I lived in a small town where in season about 5000 semis of produce left each week. Lots of truckers laid up waiting for their load. I was also waiting for their load. Got all the dick I could handle. Did a lot of guys in the trucks, took a few home and did most of them in the trucks.
How did you pick them up, R7? Did you have reason to interact with them or did you just troll the truckstop?
What really goes on at truckstops? All that pent-up, blue collar cock in remote, rural locations....sounds hot. Anyone have any truckstop stories? How does an outsider, uh...penetrate that environment? I would never pass for a trucker but I wouldn't mind being seen as a cock-hungry homo if that's what they're looking for.
Truckers skeeve me out. They have no social skills. They try to run you off the road. And they're always parked in strange areas, just sitting there.
Truck driving? I dunno. Truckstops on the other hand with no urinal divders. Now we're talking.
One of my best friends is an openly gay truck driver. And, yes, he has a mullet and is a real hillbilly but he is funny and I love being around him.
They did an episode of Law & Order about gays in the trucking industry.
It was 25 years ago, before any of the instant communication we have now. I had a phone number I did not use personally. I left that number at phone booths and in bathrooms.
These days truckers don't like all the prostitutes at the truck stops. Most truck stops have cracked down on any funny business. Hard to get any trucker dick anymore. A few years ago I advertised on CL for truckers. I lived on a truck route, easy place to pull over. I did get some action out of that.
In the 70's many people had CB radios and all truckers did. There were codes they used to find cocksuckers. There were truckers called blue lighters, supposedly they had a blue running light indicating they were looking for gay sex.
I just blew a trucker a couple of weeks ago. He had a listing on CL, small community here. He was parked and I went to his location, got in the truck and sucked him off. He was in his 40's with a big horny dick and not bad looking. Got two loads from him
Early morning at an Iowa freeway rest stop. No one was there when I pulled up. As I was leaving a cute guy came in. He had just pulled up in a semi. Even though it was obvious, I returned to the restroom. He was standing at the urinal, cock already erect. I stood by him, he asked if I wanted it. I motioned him into a stall and sucked him off. It was quick and nasty and he came a river.

Not too sure about gay truck drivers - am sure they are out there. I do, however, know a number of truck drivers who are dealing with gender-related issues.
It attracts lesbians.
Jealous much? Actually, trade is the safest cock to suck. Not like that nasty fag cock like yours.
I don't see how truck driving has anything to do with straight or gay. It's a paying job.
Ummm R19, the question was whether it attracts gay men or not. Driving a truck, in and of itself, is neither a gay or straight action. But the job itself may or may not attract a lot of gay men.
There are entire websites like trucker sucker dot com devoted to trucker cock.
A lot of them are men who have sex with men.
A lot of them are married men who don't have access to their wife for days at a time. Thus a quick b.j. in a truck-stop gloryhole provides a measure of satisfaction.
Yeah, I think it has more to do with the loneliness and the isolation. Like military, you develop a penchant for sucking cock - or getting sucked off, rather - because that's basically all you can get.
What year is this thread from?
It's from 2013, R24. We have trucks delivering goods all across the nation. Don't get run over while you're out in your horse-drawn buggy.
Lots of tired hairy asses
I have gotten a lot of attention from truckers by playing with myself while driving by them. Many will speed up and keep passing and re-passing you just to get a look! Had a CB radio and listened to some at one time. Had one trucker hold up a sign asking "Blowjob?", but it kind of scared me and I took off. I never stopped and did anything with any of the truckers, but did have a couple of weird experiences trying to lose them after they had gotten a glimpse!
"Having a wife and family is not easy when one is on the road for months at a time, so men who have no commitments tend to gravitate towards that kind of work"
Or for men who want to get away from the commitments they have. If a man wants the security of a wife and kids, but doesn't want to spend much time with them, he can become a truck driver.
More trucker stories!
I know a gay guy who quit a teaching gig to become a trucker because he thought it would be hot sex all the time.
He was very disappointed. Very rare to find that kind of scene nowadays apparently.
The truck driver's world is too aesthetically distressing for most gay men.
I'm trying to think of all the jobs where when you need to take a bathroom break, there is always someone in there to suck your dick for free. Let's see .. truck driver,
Uh no...I don't buy the whole being away from the wife and being lonely bullshit. Lady whores are just as easy to find for some blow as man whores are. It's really as simple as this: gay men away from their wives for days at a time want cock, not pussy. Straight men away from their wives and want some action want snatch, not cock. What is this obsession we gays have with thinking all these "straight" men wanting dick? That's just fucked up.
