From the time of its first publication, Tearoom Trade engendered controversy. It was also accorded an unusual amount of praise for a first book on a marginal, intentionally self-effacing population by a previously unknown sociologist. The book was quickly recognized as an important, imaginative, and useful contribution to our understanding of adevianta sexual activity. Describing impersonal, anonymous sexual encounters in public restroomsaatearoomsa in the argotathe book explores the behavior of men whose closet homosexuality is kept from their families and neighbors.

"For the anthropologist, and for other social scientists, Tearoom Trade is noteworthy for two reasons. First, it deals with a heretofore underdescribed aspect of American society. Second, it contains a candid discussion of the methodological problems of studying deviance." - E.B. Eiselein, American Anthropologist
