Silent Subway Crushes Hit the Web


Cruising has entered the digital age.

In 1860, Walt Whitman wrote the poem, "To A Stranger," which detailed one of the most exciting parts about being a gay man in a booming metropolis: the plethora of eye candy at one's finger tips on a daily basis. "Passing stranger! You do not know how longingly I look upon you," he intoned in the verse.

Cut to 2011, where the more things change, the more they stay the same. Cruising has not subsided, and with the ubiquity of smartphones and digital cameras, not only can one moon over a stranger, one can document said stranger and share him or her with all of your friends and acquaintances via Facebook and/or Twitter. Creepy? Kinda. An odd yet logical byproduct of the times? You betcha.

Even the New York Times couldn't ignore the popularity of blogs like,, and New York Subway Guysand ran a storyover the weekend on the burgeoning trendlet of oversharing your public transportation fantasies. Of course, the Out staff thought it would be unfair to report on this without doing some further investigation, so we all picked a few of our favorite commuting cuties for you to see. Check out our slideshow HERE.
