Question of the Day


My question is...Are Gay Bathhouses/saunas relevant anymore?

Or, do we still need them?

Need them for what?

I think as long as people still like to do the old in and out, will still have bathhouses, prostitution and other ways of getting our needs met.

I personally see now problem with them. Hey, people need a place to go and get off, without having to worry about being arrested and having their name and faces plastered in local papers, because they hooked up in public spaces.

Here in London, I know a lot of young boys go to them after clubbing. Not necesssarily for sex, but as a chill-out. Saunas/bathhouses can be nice, chilled out fun palaces, cut off from reality. Use the steam rooms, the wet rooms, the spas, wander about. Have sex, even.

I last went with a friend who was discovering his sexuality. He had a lot of sex. I used the steam room, the wet room, the spa, and wandered about.

As an exclusive space for *gay men only* yes, they're needed.

yes as long as people want quick, easy, anonymous sex and don't want to put in the time.
