    I'm sure there are certain gyms that are higher than others but does about half sound right based on your observations/knowledge?

    Around 25%.. unless you live in a gay neighborhood, in that case, the percentage is higher. My gaydar has gotten to the point I can make them out by their hairstyle, workout clothes and even the way they walk. Believe me, there's such a thing as 'being gay' at the gym. icon_lol.gif

    Which is why I like to wear plain white fly front briefs when I go to the gym; gaydar jamming.

    Hmmmm…since I live in SF and workout at a 24' Fitness, I'm going with 70%. Maybe that's a little high but it's definitely higher than the average and I'm not even at the one in the Castro!

    Probably around 6% or less, suburban gyms mostly have straight and older in terms of the men.

    Suburban gym here, so about 2%. Seriously, unless you include the downlow husbands. Then, maybe 5-7%.

    I noticed tonight that there are so few good looking guys at my gym. The few that are, are kind of workaday good looking, not fully hot. It would help if they would deal with those damn crew socks and big-ass basketball shorts.

    My gaydar is atrocious so I have no idea. 0% maybe... or maybe 100% no way of knowing for sure. icon_neutral.gif

    Here in Chicago, I have begun to think that half the guys I walk by on the sidewalk are willing to have sex with men. They may not identify as "gay," but they are definitely willing and ready to play.

    100% at my gym. (I'm pretty sure the cat thinks he's a top when he jumps on my chest.)

    In the 90's, I went to a gym in seattle, near the convention center, which was the only time I've ever seen people actually wearing that shit from the "international male" catalog. icon_eek.gif
    I'm pretty sure it was about 89% in there.
    (After that, I went to the one in a basement down the water front. Dark, dank, but people minded their own business.)

    Ha. In all honesty, probably about 60-70% of the males at my gym are gay ($79 a month btw) Not sure about the women, not that I care anyways....

    Me and my friend stopped for awhile and looked around and we have all seen half these queens at the clubs, bars, gay beach, or hooked up with. icon_biggrin.gif

    I'm guessing 2-3%. I'm totally clueless. My gaydar is totally broken. icon_redface.gif

    Well it can't be zero per cent because I'm there but its probably damn close it. It's a suburban gym so I'm not really surprised.

    When I first visited SFO, I went to Crunch. All I had to say was wow! Especially the showers with the silhouette background. icon_biggrin.gif

    I just joined a new and it's difficult to see who is gay and who is straight. If I had to guess I'd say 10-20% are gay. Maybe higher. The gym is very "gay-friendly" though.

    The council here estimates the gay population over the city as a whole at 14%. I go to a gym that's dead centre and well, it's a gym. I'd guess 35% (judging by the piercings/tattoos/underwear choices.

    I can't tell at all but my grinder account never has anyone close while I'm there.
