Gloryholes are the ultimate expression of near-anonymous, faceless sex. In the stereotypically physical beauty-obsessed world of gay eroticism, gloryholes are bastions of non-judgmental, appearance-irrelevant intercourse; they allow for a man to negate or mask his perceived physical inadequacies, or to separate his sexual persona from his social one. For some men, it is the sheer randomness of the gloryhole that makes for its appeal; while for other men, it is the juxtaposing of distance and intimacy that they find especially alluring. Besides the penis, the tongue, fingers, or, perhaps, the hand, may be inserted into the hole. But gloryholes are primarily associated with oral or anal sex, the former requiring the fellator to kneel in his stall in order to perform fellatio, and the latter requiring the receiver to align his anus with the gloryhole and place his buttocks flush against the partition.
