Espaces « naturels » de la drague : Un patrimoine au-dessus de tout soupçon ?

Abstract : In the context of a European survey on social uses and perceptions of natural spaces on the Languedoc coastline (South of France) a diversity of impacts on the environment were reported to ultimately design recommendations to reduce them. We compared results not only between expected uses of the seaside (e.g. family / leisure) and cruising-for-sex, but also between different cross-categories of sexual users of the site in both space (beach / dune) and time. The presence of contrasted networks of men cruising-for-sex on daily and seasonal basis leads to further discuss the correlation between recently environmental protection measures and these long lasting notorious forms of sexual appropriation of space. The article also highlights the role of public actors’ representations and attitudes towards such “undesirable” attendance in the framing of protected “natural” areas.
