Has anyone been to Sauna or Bath Houses that cater for men only?
What do you think of them?
Back in the day (over 10 years ago) I used to frequent a few in Seattle. Not any more though.
at one now. the club in st louis
Montreal has some of the best in the world
Yes. Gay saunas, after a relationship and a time of celibacy. I preferred them to bars or clubs. I found one in particular in South London that was a bit more relaxed and friendly than the city-centre ones.
More recently though, I've been going to a more traditional East London steam club. It's not gay, though it is men-only most days. I enjoy the nudity, massaging and cameraderie there. And the facilities are much better too, being the main point, rather than an excuse for a knocking-shop (sex club).
D'accord mon ami. D'accord. :biggrin1:
Frequently, repeatedly, happily. My boyfriend and I navigate the world by them.
But with your percentages at 100% straight, I have to wonder why you'd want to know. Men go there for sex. Massages and relaxation and jacuzzis and camaraderie are a nice extra, but ultimately it's all about the sex. So if you don't want sex with men, then you're going to have men coming on to you constantly, and you'll have to be able to handle it gracefully.
You don't have to do anything you don't want to, obviously, and if anyone tries to force you then they're in the wrong, but still, that's really the whole point.
I agree you do have to be open minded but be aware you do not have to do anything you do not want to. It can also be a good place to lose your shyness. When i started going i was extreamly shy and would not talk to anyone. It is amazing how relaxed you start to become when you realize you no longer can hide anything when you are just in a towel. So go have fun the first time is the hardest but it gets easier.
I never tried the ones in Seattle (too bad, judging from your gallery), but I got my card punched at clubs in San Francisco, London, New York, Atlanta and LA.
The stench was always a turn off to me and I always ended up meeting guys fresh off the showers instead.
I haven't been to many, actually, only one; and that one is terrible.
It's in Downtown LA and most of the guys there are either coming from migrant work in the fruit/garment district or homeless just trying to get some soap and a blowjob.
Apparently it has its moments, but I don't really care to go and find out. I've made enough bad decisions in that place.
I'll echo of whoever said back in the day! Wow I did not think they existed anymore!
as i have already admitted ...in my twenties and early thirties..i was a male whore..
i would meet my 'clients' at bath houses in Chicago, San Diego, Cleveland, and New York..
Steamworks in Chicago...is old, a bit unkempt, and they do the best they can in keeping an old place up...its out lived its life span...
Cleveland...WOW...great bath house...its a flexbathhouse...and seems to be constantly evolving..
San Diego...been to far to many of them to remember their names...hated all of them..i don't know what is going on in So Cal..or LA..but the gay night life...is anything but gay...restrictions on just about everything...and don't think of going to a porn shop to kill some time and watching some porn with bottle of poppers...the police knock on the door...and tell u no poppers allowed..
I would suspect...if u don't have a big cock, or a good looking body, or whatever the current trend is...going there for sex maybe a challenge...if ur going at night.
if u go during the biz hours...the twinks and the femmes are in scant supply...and the guys there are just looking to suck some cock...or get sucked...the beauty contest doesn't start until about 9pm...and kicks in around 11pm...and its over by 3am..
the ZONE in WeHo..west hollywood...if its still up and running...ahhh...u will find whatever it is ur looking for at the ZONE.
i don't know if its still running under the premise it was when i use to hang there...
its called the ZONE..for this reason...the place is divided into zones...u r handed a swipe card to get u from zone to zone depending on what zone u paid for...
one zone..is for 6 inches to 7 inches...then 7-8 inches...8-9 inches..and over 9 inches...
there are lights at check in to indicate how many guys are in the zones...
if ur over 9 inches...and want to get in for free, they will measure at the door...and if u r over 9+ inches..u will get in free...and the zones are priced accordinly...minimum was 35.00 as i recall...i always got in free...
lots of str8 and gay porn stars hang out at this place...or like i said, use to...
and within each zone are sections for blow jobs...glory holes, and if u want to fuck or get fucked...there are sofas and stuff to fuck on...and at ur own risk...
u can also...rent a private room...if u can coax the dude u found to go back to your room..he may or may not go...lots of HUGE HUNG COCKS all erect and walking all over the place...the 9+ guys...are free to go from zone to zone...if u only pay for a 6-7in zone..that is all u can travel to...by use of the magnetic card that u carry around ur neck...
would be interested to hear if this place is still running this zone deal...
not that i want to go back...but..curious if its still as popular as it was a number of years ago..
its off Melrose...on sycamore...in west hollywood...and melrose is off sunset blvd...if i remember correctly..
so..lemme get this right..ur at a bath house NOW as u typed this...
i think u have answered any and all questions on the state of bath houses currently in the US...for if u are sitting on the computer at a bath house..the crowds either must be standing room only...or...no one is looking for sex tonight...
go home...i think u can find something better to do then hangin out for cock to suck
There's already a great existing thread on this very subject. I strongly suggest reading it. Among that thread's contents is this fantastically useful post on how to go to the baths and have a good time:
That thread also contains a post from me sent from an internet terminal in a bathhouse :tongue:.
To which I'd add:
6. Be kind when you reject people who don't attract you: sooner or later, you'll be in their flipflops.
7. Wear flipflops, or something on your feet. Whatever else they have, those places are crawling with athlete's foot and verrucas.
There are about a dozen here, one of them is a hundred years old, but they are pretty much all renovated, the really tacky ones had to close down because of all the competition. There are three that cater mainly for bisexual-type guys including one where even women are permitted. Some of them are for older, some for younger, some for smokers, some for poppers, some really first class new spotless, others a bit more hardcore dingy/funky whatever. Some of them have lounges and internet et cetera mainly people go there for sex and relaxation or sunbathing in summer. Sometimes the sex is quick but you can find people into kissing and hugging and chatting and lots of gentle touching or else sometimes just the saunas or whirpools or steamrooms or movies or pools or gym or party atmosphere could keep you there for a few hours. Sometimes people like to play the stupid video lottery machines or play snooker whatever or even just watch regular TV. They are all different so check Spartacus for details. But some of them only really get busy after 3am after the bars close (have never understood why they have to close).
Quebec city also has three nice ones but kinda quiet. Halifax has a nice but tiny one. Ottawa has two prety good ones. Toronto has about five and most of the larger cities in Quebec and Ontario have at least one each. Last time I heard there were still four in Johannesburg, two in Cape Town and one in Pretoria. Haven't been to any anywhere else.
Of course if you have major issues these places are not for you but if just a bit timid then it can be a nice way of losing inhibitions.
Yet another reason to visit! ARRGGHHH!!!!!
I've been in a few all-male saunas...mostly overseas in places like Sydney, Prague, and Athens. I've never hooked up in one...but its interesting to watch the dynamics, interaction, and eye candy (if there is any). All the advice given earlier is good. Remember, you don't have to do anything you don't want to. You can keep your towel on the whole time if the mood strikes you. I have gone with a sense of curiosity and adventure (it beats sitting in a hotel room watching BBC World News), though I don't really have a yearning to go anymore.
yes and it's hit or miss as for the fun.
Have fun. Play safe.
Hi everyone! This is the author of the above essay (Why Gay Men Go To The Baths). I actually have a website called Bathhouse Blues. It basically tells you everything you wanted to know about the baths, but were afraid to ask. Anyways I hope everyone enjoys reading it!
