    Hi Guys,

    I know it's a big joke - guys having sex at the gym... but I was just wondering what the rules/laws are in your part of the world?

    In New Zealand, where I'm from, you could be charged with public indecency if someone saw four feet in the shower stall AND complained AND if the gym wanted to go through with it...

    ... here in France where I've lived for a few years, sometimes you'll walk in on a bunch of guys jerking off in the steamroom and they'll carry on as if nothings unusual (GOTTA LOVE PARIS).

    Obviously the situation depends on the gym too... so what's it like at your gym and in your country?

    (Just out of curiousity of course, I wouldn't want you all thinking I was some kind of slut haha)

    William

    Here it's not against the law I don't think but it can be very annoying
    .... guys lurking around the locker room
    .... you have to make believe you're not looking when guys are doing something in the shower
    hand from the chandeliers if you want but do it outside the gym

    Eh, not cool if there are kids using the locker room too. Plus, a lot of people don't want to be subjected to it. Why not take it home or go to a bathhouse?

    GQJock, do guys really go at it in plain sight at your gym? That's pretty nuts!

    This question isn't about values, morals, or beliefs by the way.

    Ireland has the same gross public indecency laws. Technically speaking, they apply to the gay saunas too, so people shouldn't do anything in the common areas, but if you take a booth with a bed in it, that qualifies as domiciled, so you can do what you like. In fairness, I've never been to the saunas, but I'm told that the common areas do not maintain a law-abiding chastity, as one would expect. On the gym front, I don't have a moral position on sex in the gym, but I think it's distasteful. I've never seen anything happen in any of the gyms I've been in though.

    Australia:

    I think it's the same as New Zealand. In NSW, where I'm from, you could be done with a whole heap of other stuff if a kid is exposed to 'the act' by chance.

    I know that it happens in gyms here, there are a few in my state that are well known beats where this happens. If they get caught they'll no doubt lose their membership.

    Try not to get caught. Unless you go to one of those "special" gyms.

    I actually walked in on a couple of guys playing with each other in the sauna a few days ago. I was so shocked that I didn't know how to react. They stopped immediately, covered up, and I just sat down and looked downwards. In hindsight, I should have said sorry, let the boys have their fun and then gone back a few minutes later... lol

    at least I now know 2 more gay guys at the gym lol

    At my gym, the warning sign on the steamroom door about membership being revoked for not wearing a swimsuit gets ripped down all the time.

    At my gym in London some guys go at it in the steam room, especially if the steam room is actually in the male locker room. Alright maybe I have a few times. ;)

    Out University gym and recreation center is an awesome bastion of physical development. I've never actually read the rules but it is perfectly acceptable to tell a guy you are attracted to him and offer a phone number. It would be completely unacceptable to engage in sexual activity there though, it's just not that kind of an atmosphere, and I'm grateful for that. My city does have a 'Men's Athletic Adventures Club' though that has a pretty decent gym, along with covered cabanas, steam room, dry sauna, and cubicles. I've been once to earn that 'Rite of Passage' badge and actually asked for clarification of the rules. The rules are that you can do what you want if you're behind a door. So the showers are off limits, the suanas and steam rooms are fair game. There are 'cubicles' that can be rented for entertaining guests as well. They seemed to put a LOT of effort into cleanliness, they had quite a few staffers cleaning and disinfecting constantly, most of the guys were in poor shape or older and just enjoying relaxing in an all male atmosphere, but there was definitely a lot of casual encounters occuring as well.

    In Southwestern Ontario, I have read of a couple of gyms that pretty cruisy. As far as sex in the men's locker room or sauna would probably get your membership revoked. Now one bathhouse I was in, in Toronto had its own little work out area. Didn't see any sex going on there but it would a nice little role play to have some guys working out all their muscles.

    The Gym is a good place to meet like minded guys.. That's it !
    I am so tired of hearing how men blow each other and whatever else they do in locker rooms.
    I personally would contact Management if I witnessed such behavior. Not meaning to sound like a prude just tired of the stereotype attached to gay men due to this kind of behavior.
    Why give some frustrated bi or married guy the satisfaction ? Why put yourself in a position to be used, or even to get an incureable disease.. C'mon guys atleast get a beer or dinner out of it!

    Well... icon_redface.gif

    Actually...

    I gotta say...

    I've done some stuff in the gym... That was in my former gym with one of the trainers.

    In my current gym I've had the chance too. With another trainer too LOL. But I haven't crossed the line here yet because I'm not single at the moment.

    I guess here in Venezuela we're free about sex. Although some people can be really conservative.

    Yuck, I had no idea so many people were having sex in locker rooms and i thought all that heavy breathing I was hearing was because guys had pushed themselves.
    I guess the moral of the story is:always wear shower shoes.

    As far as I know its pretty much against the law in almost every state in the US, but it depends on whether someone complains or not.

    I never played at the gym and never will. I go to workout, shower, relax and go home. If I want something anonymous Ill go to a bathhouse. That said I have complained a couple of times. Discretion is the better part of valor.

    Where do people get all these hangups on sex. Seems like it should be a natural thing to do. After a good hard workout go to the locker room, sauna, and jack or suck with another horny guy, guys. I wish there were glory holes in the locker rooms, for straight and gay guys to use. What a good ending to a good workout. Such narrow thinking about sex, our bodies and just being natural.

    Religion has done a terrible thing to sex and just being human. How sex became all tied up in all this bullshit is amazing.

    I have nothing against sex, but in a public place? No thanks that is not appropriate, that is what bathhouses are for, use them!

    I go to the gym to workout and focus on me not get laid. The mental image or fantasy is always cool but the reality is a different story. There are plenty of outlets to get that shit going.

    I'm probably one of the most open minded individuals you will ever meet. Friendly to anyone I encounter. Although I do pretty much like to be left alone at the gym. HOWEVER, if I see you doing this shit I'll turn you in so fast it will make your head spin. Take it some place else.
