AeroNalex saidI merely stated that bathhouses are never a good idea for suggesting sex. This is mostly based on the fact that they were shut down in the United States for reasons we all know.
Bathhouses are not good. It doesn't matter how "classy" they are.
Those reasons were based on ignorance. And I don't mean that as a criticism, because at first the transmission factors were not fully understood, and when they finally were it took some time for the word to permeate the gay community and to be accepted as true.
But once that ignorance was dispelled and principles of safe sex were established the bathhouses were not the pestilence holes you seem to be making them. If some guys wish to practice unsafe sex then they can just as well do it at home as at a bathhouse.
I might also note that shutting the bathhouses down had a political aspect, as well. Conservatives never wanted them to exist in the first place, and the risk of disease transmission made a perfect reason the public would endorse, and the law would allow.
As for classy bathhouses, have you ever been in one? In the US they can be much cleaner, nicely run and well appointed than most ordinary health clubs are. And require memberships and charge fees that rather effectively reduce the likelihood that some homeless street person is gonna wander in to either get sex or to sell it.
I get the impression your objections are made mostly on moral grounds and misinformation. I wouldn't recommend a bathhouse to a novice for gay sex, for the same reason I wouldn't recommend he go cruising in a gay bar: lack of general experience, and lack of safe sex experience in particular. But for a guy who's a veteran and practices safe sex I don't see more risk than any other kind of gay sex hookups. If you oppose the one you really must oppose all the others.
