This chapter explores various types of same-sex affairs that the region's transient workforce participated in, concentrating on the adult-juvenile relationship that seemed to dominate this group's homosexual system. It then examines the distinctive culture that migrant laborers forged, concentrating on the same-sex sexual system they developed and that so dominated the rural work camps and byways. A brief consideration of the physical geography of the transients' same-sex sexual desires and activities in the rural Northwest is presented. Historical evidence and past studies of sexual practices demonstrate that the jocker-punk relationship was not necessarily one-sided. The transient youth and the migratory adult male influenced male same-sex sexuality in the city.
