I live in SD but haven't been to a gay bar in years and the last time I did go to a few, I found them very clique-ish and dull. The baths, however, are a different story. The Vulcan, at 843 Cedar St downtown (actually Little Italy) is ok, it attracts more "eldergays" but still has a good mix. If you just want a locker they are cheaper on Mondays and Wednesdays but you still have to get a monthly membership card for a dollar. There is also Club San Diego on 4th Avenue in Hillcrest (aka Uptown), a little more expensive and a somewhat younger crowd that is more "touch me not". I always liked the jacuzzi there better as it is bigger and I found more space to be by myself in the tv room and jack off to the porn. But without knowing you of course, I would say your better bet would be the Vulcan as I haven't gone in there yet without hearing somebody moaning from getting his ass slapped around and fucked from behind the closed door. I've lost track of the bars, but someone posting after me might be more "attuned" to them; I've always heard the bar called "The Hole" still had a back/orgy room but I've never been there and wouldn't know how to get there if I did. I don't even know if it's still in business either. Parts of Balboa Park used to be cruisy but I think that is pretty much a thing of the past now; I have no idea where hustlers/male prostitutes hang out now, but even so most of your selection might be mostly Mexican twinks. Hope this helps...........
Mexican twinks, yum
La Jolla. The Romney estate. Ask for Craig.
