Bushwick Is Feisty and Full of Fetishes, According to Our Survey


Evan Haddad


Last week, we asked our readers to reveal some of the most intimate details of their love lives and steamy sexscapades. 

We wanted to know how often you got down, whether you’ve ever hired a sex worker from Craigslist, or if you’ve contracted an STD/STI. We also wanted to learn more about your fetishes, fantasies, and weirdest sexual encounters in Bushwick.

The 160 replies to our survey told us many fascinating things. While that number is far less than we would have liked, it suggests some general trends that are surely applicable to the sex lives of many Bushwickers. 

Have a look at some of the interesting numbers and testimonies below.
