Welcome to the World Sex Guide forums
• Ever wonder if your town had a seamy underside? The WSG forums exist to
facilitate "the exchange of information between men who are looking for sex
with women," and allow users to browse by city & country
to discuss the local cruising scene with other Johns in the field. It's replete with much insider lingo, curious acronyms, awkward tiptoe language (think "bong" vs. "water-filtered tobacco pipe" in headshop culture), and red-herring posts left as bait for the law enforcement (LE) who evidently monitor these forums. Agree or disagree morally with the John lifestyle, it's still worth a glimpse into this strange subculture.
