Dan Savage, escrevendo sobre o código de conduta dos garotos de programa, oferece um caso interessante de teoria dos jogos sexuais:
Back in the bad old days — the mythical 1950s, the era social conservatives pine for — most gay men were closeted, which made it relatively easy for them to arrange discreet trysts. You could rely on the discretion of your sex partners because they were relying on yours. It was the era of mutually assured destruction, both in terms of nuclear warfare and gay sex. Your partner couldn’t reveal your secret without revealing his own.
Puro Gary Becker.
