    If you're wondering whether you'd be popular, the answer is "YES" - assuming your avatar is in fact you.

    But I have to admit that for someone like myself who can be easily amused his posts are mildly entertaining.

    A gay bath house is a place where you can get a spa day, a full manny peddy and they'll even give you a rubber duckie!

    I visited one of these once in my youth. I thought it was a cool experience for hooking up with guys. The only thing I didn't like that when me and another guy actually started to do what we were going to do, a bunch of guys just surrounded us and involved themselves in it without invitation. I don't like people touching me when I haven't invited you to do so. I left. I was uncomfortable. There seemed to be a lot of old predatory kind of guys there who seemed to have no understanding of boundaries which made a bad impression on me as a young man. But that was just my ancient experience going once.

    Maybe there needs to be more bath houses. It might help reduce the awkward moments when you walk into the steam room at a regular gym and see two guys getting it on. icon_neutral.gif

    I used to be a prude and think sex on premises venues were for creeps. One night my friend took me to one and it was really civilised and we had the most fun ever having three ways with guys who we thought were hot, and were having a foursome at one point taking turns sharing partners. One down side was I was in a sling getting fucked by my friend because I thought it would be fun to try and someone left the door unlocked, it was dark and I had my eyes closed but when I opened them I was surrounded by lurkers and I flipped out.
    The ones I went to were filled with mostly younger guys

    I still go to them occasionally. I generally meet up with guys more than an hour drive from my home. It's cheaper and more fun to take a room at the baths, than at a motel. It's also much safer than delivering yourself to the house of some guy that you don't know.

    Going there to LOOK for a guy is pretty hit and miss. As others have noted, there are plenty of trolls hanging around. The sorts of guys who, if you were already hard, will make you soft just looking at them. icon_sad.gif It has been a long, long time since there was anything like the sort of orgies depicted on QAF, but I have experienced that a very few times.

    As far as other people watching you... well, you can just go back to your room. But it turns out that I find it surprisingly hot to be watched. (I suppose it never occurred to me than anybody would WANT to.) You can let it all hang out in public spaces, where people will reach out and touch... just make sure that nobody inserts anything that you don't want inserted. Or there are "rooms with a view." You can open or close the blinds, turn the lights on or off, and let the masses press up against the glass...

    Oh crap... I'm getting too old for all of that anyway. Heh heh... that's the other advantage... on apps, the first thing people do is look to see how old you are. In a live room, the first thing they do is look to see what you're packing ;)

    Did I say that?

    I've only been to one bathhouse, at least I think it was a bathhouse. It's called *The Zone in L.A.? on Santa Monica/Sycamore? Lol I came around like 12 midnight and left at 4-5 am. It was kinda dead, just a couple of creepy guys walking around and jerking each other off. Lol, I ended up walking around and talked to the cute guy/cashier in the lobby and left at 5 am. Wasted $20 entrance fees!! icon_sad.gif Oh well !!

    2bnaked saidWhy do you think they shut them all down in San Francisco?






    Shutting down the baths in San Francisco was the city government's reaction to the AIDS epidemic.

    I have a friend that owns one in Belgium. He calls it a sauna. I have been reading that many of the ones in the US are having financial problems and some have closed down. I think that they are having more trouble competing with the internet. My friends place sounds like it is doing fine though. He is continuously improving it and has been offering big parties once in a while.

    Lol Another funny example I remembered. When I visited my ex and his family back in Boston/Gloucester in MA in 2010. My ex and his dad went to a sauna/bath, they asked me to tag along. Lol, so there I was, met his dad for the first time in a hot sauna, completely naked and my junk was hanging. He saw everything LOL. I was so uncomfortable, my ex-bf naked with me in the sauna with his dad. They were talking/bonding about some stuff, Lol, I just like hung out in one corner Lol. And this one other dude kept staring at me up and down. LOL, must be a cultural thing, Finnish-Italian people love the bath/saunas. Me, I don't like it as much.

    The only one I've been to is Island House in Key West. One giant bath house. Have enjoyed it every time.

    Only once, but I found it completely stressing with people staring creepliy on you, as well because of the dirty, dark facilities. But some say it can be a good experience...when the bathhouse is nice!
