Private Pleasures (Probably NSFW)

Date: May, 2017

Tucked away, there is a gay campground with fantastic amenities like a heated pool, electricity on sites, and a food trailer. Tucked further away in there is a sexual play area where anything can happen. Many thanks to the owner for allowing me to photograph the equipment itself under the condition that I do not name the campground.

The question this photography series poses is how does a space for male sex reflect male sexuality. Under the October autumn afternoon, the structures are as ominous as they are by nightfall when the path is lit from garden lights low to the ground. It is a small pocket of homomasculinity that is open to what its clientele is open for, with consent. Keeping these shots black and white helped with handling issues related to dappled lighting through the trees. This space is a bonus, and one put together by owners knowing who would go back into the woods, so building the structures here allows the rest of the forest to grow undisturbed.

Except for any noises by wild animals in the night, of course.

That said, if you know where it is, keep your mouth shut.
