What was life like for gay men in the year 1900?

How about the gay sex? Anal? Oral? Rimming?

Is this a homophobic “cleverly” hinting at how gay men has sex with each other back when cleanliness may have been a problem, like poop, not wiping well and gay men are into poop and stink and all of that? If it is, I’m in! Hate gays!

This is about homos not about saintly heteros.

If anything, I am more than certain that gay men maintained a higher level of cleanliness than the nasty, breeding straights.

Doctors back then recommended daily enemas as a cure-all.

They did have soap and bathtubs in 1900. People didn't bathe daily like we do now, but bathing was available to them when needed.

I love the men in suspenders and top hats (or whatever they were called) back then.

I've read that in the early 20th century, the bar at the now-gone Astor Hotel was THE gay cruising spot in NYC. Apparently, if you were a gay guy in NYC back then the Astor Hotel bar was common knowledge as the biggest cruising spot in town.

They dealt with it. I’m sure they cleansed themselves.

R8 you are so full of shit you probably can't even smell your own bad breath.

From the linked article

[quote] Bad breath is no modern dilemma. The Talmud warned against it in priests, Muhammad allegedly dismissed a follower from a mosque because of it, and the ancient Romans employed slaves to clean their mouths to prevent it.

[quote] Ancient Egyptians fashioned toothpaste out of a substance (natron) they used for embalming mummies and made breath-sweetening pellets of frankincense and myrrh. In the medieval Arabic empire, people chewed on the mouth-freshening twigs of the Salvadora persica shrub
