    Never been.

    Just wondering what kinds of experiences some of you have had. I'm thinking about visiitng a Steamworks establishment during some travel later in the year but am not really looking into walking into the middle of an orgy.

    I mean, I know sex goes on and all ... but are there guys who just like to go to these places and relax and enjoy some same gender company and conversation?

    Nobody forces anybody to do anything they don't want to do icon_twisted.gif

    Some are really nice. Some are nasty and sleazy. Yes, there are some (such as the one in Fort Lauderdale) which are nice, relaxed, and where you can have a real conversation out by the pool, in the hot tub, or in the gym.

    I went to this one in Portland, Oregon a couple times. It was super fun. You just have to be kind but firm with advances that you do not want. I stayed out of the hot tub, but the nude tanning roof was spectacular. It had to be one of the best things about the bath house; not the action up there, but it was fun nude sunbathing with other nude guys.

    Steamworks in Berkeley is also a nice place. Full of hot, nasty guys.

    Been to some in Canada and Europe. Yeah you can just enjoy the steam, hot tub, etc. some guys are open to just chatting. But a lot of action will be going on and everyone will assume that's why you're there. I was often touched in the dark steam rooms, but it was never too aggressive. Depending on who is around, might be hard to resist temptation. Some baths are a filthy mess, a few people will need a firm NO, and a lot of guys aren't safe.

    My advice is use good judgement,lockers for valuables, don't go intoxicated, and take a long shower afterwards. If travelling, getting a room for the night there is the cheapest place in town, and I think some straight guys who don't care about the environment do that.

    Some guys cringe at the thought of going to bathhouse ,but they'll go to an adult book store in a heartbeat and get in a booth.

    Yes. In my single days I visited gay saunas/bath houses from time to time and I'd say 80% of the time I didn't have any sexual contact at all.

    It was just nice to chill out, maybe chat a bit to some guys, be a bit of a voyeur on certain occasions, or wank in the porn room with a bunch of guys (but not actually touching or being touched by anyone else). I just kinda liked the atmosphere but it can be hit and miss - I know some people say they can be really dirty and sleazy, perhaps I was just lucky with the ones I went to.

    It was quite fun to wander around naked or have a naked hot tub etc too.

    I only had full sex with a guy in one once, and a couple of other times blowjob/handjobs.

    Been to a few in Canada. Kinda nasty, kinda fun… Avoid the hot tubs as they are basically big vats of cum… LOL.

    Sounds exciting but I never went and never will. It's not the raunchy sex that bothers me, it's the penicillin treatments afterward.

    Never been mate, but what I can tell from mates who have been is that there is a lot of sex. Condoms and lube available.

    But there is also Chem sex happening there which is pretty, dangerous.

    I just think about that scene from "Orange Is the New Black." How do you have a conversation with someone when everyone else is fooling around? I'd kinda worry I'd be ruining the mood

    Its actually a great place to people watch. They sum up the gay community perfectly in my opinion. Some friendly guys walking around minding their own business who are open to chat but not desperate for attention. Most guys who have basically all fucked each other running around turning each other down in hopes of landing someone new and hot but then going back to the same guys they just rejected when they realize new and hot don't want old and fat lol. Once my piercings are healed I'll go back. The one near me keeps the hot tube pipping hot, which is just the way I like it.

    I knew a guy like this. After a few visits to the bathhouse he was like this:

    Thanks PulseFit. That's pretty much the kind of experience I'm looking for. I guess it's just a matter of going and seeing if there's the kind of chill vibe I want. If I find it's not to my liking, I can always just leave.

    Dig all the other replies as well.

    You would find the ones in Europe are all pretty nice - some even almost luxurious.

    I've been to a few. Best was in Amsterdam. Some are great, some not. No one will force you to do anything you don't want to do, though some guys need a strong "No" to get them to back off. Be careful. be safe, and you can be as into the action or out of it as you like. I've never seen a full on orgy if that scares you. Mostly it is one-on-one or a small group. If you hang back and make no moves yourself, chances are no one will mess with you but if that happens, don't be mad no one hit on you. Most guys try to read the body language you send.

    Are there any bathhouses in California where younger guys frequent? The ones I go to are only full of men my age, unfortunately.
