This portfolio-style thesis has three components: a case study, my own autoethnographic work, and the analysis of Doublelist casual encounter ads. It explores hookup culture across Metro Atlanta and the Southeast among down low and discreet men beginning with an examination of the masc 4 masc subculture where MSM assert their hypermasculinity in an attempt to stay on top of the heteropatriarchy. I then explore brojobs, how the definition can fluctuate, and participants’ past sexual conquests. Sexual fluidity and identity correlate for some, while it is distinct for others. Lastly, the secretive nature of the down low and discreet culture are analyzed through means of sexual behaviors.
