    Being quite honest here: I do linger in the sauna. It is quite large and depending on where you sit has a clear view through the glass door to the showers or the sinks and mirrors. I should say that I am getting really fit, youngish (30s), and attractive. I work out vigorously for about 2 hours, then I sit in the sauna for about 20 minutes hoping that some other dude may join me. I don't sit where I can watch the showers, but I want to.
    I am not looking for sex, and I don't want to acquire a rep as a troll, what do you guys think?

    If you're hanging out in the sauna in hopes that some other guy is going to join you, and if you're wishing you could see the showers from where you are sitting or may position yourself to where you can see guys shower, yes, you're a troll.

    I don't think you're a troll. And if your description is accurate, I'd consider sitting next to you.

    Sounds pretty trollish to me.

    But I think a lot of *cough* shallow *cough* guys would consider you to NOT be a troll, because trolls by definition have to be ugly and undesirable. icon_rolleyes.gif If you want to find sex, go to the sauna sauna, not the gym sauna.

    So it appears that people get away with obnoxious behavior as long as they are attractive. This is such a sad world.

    Unfortunately it's kind of true!

    If you see a fat old man sitting there leering at you then you get freaked out.

    If he's a 30 something fit good-looking guy he's 'flirting'

    Cruising is trashy and makes straight people not vote in favor of giving gays legal protections. Also, it's fucking creepy as hell, at least at most gyms there could be KIDS around in the locker room.

    Oh I agree with this.

    In my experience a lot of gay men thing that cruising is a given right and I've even heard people mention the word 'culture' in the same sentence.

    I would be of the opinion that if you act like an animal, then expect to have the same rights as one.

    Do you deign yourself somewhat more evolved in some way, form or function from other homosexuals?
    And if you do, would you please elaborate as to what sets yourself apart from these other homosexuals that you have denegrated to animals?

    You are the problem with America. OK maybe not you personally. It was just fun to say. However, the idea that gays have to behave in a way that is approved of by Christian America before they have the rights to equality in the law is a HUGE, HUGE problem. It´s crap. We are not going to get the approval of the Christian Right. It will not happen. Ever. If you don´t understand that you don´t understand the opposition. Don´t even waste time on it. We do not have to earn the same basic freedoms and protections. That is not how it works.







    [Oh, and I´m not in favour of cruising in family gyms... not so good.]

    Was that not clear from my post?

    I don't cruise toilets / changing rooms / parks / lane ways etc for sex.

    If you bother to read my post, I said "a lot" i.e. not all gay men think this way.

    And yes I could myself among those that don't, as do many others.

    What has religion to do with this?

    Cruising is not a religious issue, its a moral one. For gay men to think they can cruise (and have sex) in public around children and other adults who use the facility is animal behaviour.

    It's like visiting your friends house and awkwardly looking away as their dog humps a cushion.

    The saunas at my main gym are coed and in the view of the main lobby lounge via a big glass wall. At my other gym they are also coed but much more private. I really don't like being cruised or spied at the gym - but I try to just smile and keep walking.

    I do agree that unless your gym is predominantly gay or extremely openly gay friendly gym then it is best to keep your cruising out of the gym. There are lots of places to go if you want to see live naked men - frequent those places instead.

    Crystal.
    I have read the entirety of your post and asked you to please elaborate on the matter. You have made it clear that you consider yourself somewhat more evolved in some way, form or function from other homosexuals.

    If the only thing that sets you apart is the fact that you do not cruise toilets / changing rooms / parks / lane ways etc for sex. then there is not that much different from you or the OP aside from where you get your sex.

    Aside from that...you are as much animal.

    I assume that you were not always in a monogomous relationship? Hmmmm?

    Cruising is not a religious issue, its a moral one.

    It's not even a moral issue, but a question of really terrible aesthetics. It projects an image of cheap, pathetic desperation to an audience that has no interest in seeing it.
    Yesterday in the locker room I saw an individual standing and staring as another guy changed for his workout. He made no attempt at any pretext or disguise of what he was doing. The guy being stared at simply ignored the stalker. But it was awkard and embarrassing just the same to be in the vicinity of the situation.
    My gym isn't a family-oriented one. It has an adult, urban-professional clientele. But even in that context behavior like this is discordant. It's not something you want to have to witness -- not because of any puritanical morality, but because it's sad.
