Yes, there are still some places, even in the wake of crackdowns and internet hookups.
Here they are, in all their grubby desperation and/or fascinating appeal:
The Black Party. Just walking to the bar there, you might find yourself suddenly entrenched in a nine-way involving every fetish you never even dreamed of. Wear plastic bags. (March 19 at Roseland Ballroom.)
Banya. A bathhouse-y party that starts slowly, but after the toweled (and usually hot) patrons have had a few thousand drinks, it becomes a nouveau version of the twin cities--Sodom and Gomorrah. (The last time around, they moved the location to Brooklyn, sending a bus from Chelsea. We'll see where the next one is. Even cross-country would be worth it.)
Vishara. A low-rent Times Square video store, the upstairs is lined with booths which are supposed to be only for one, though that's hardly enforced, as long as you put a dollar in the slot for porn films. Some cuties, some mental patients, and some cute mental patients. (8th Avenue between 48th and 49th.)
West Side Club. They say it's "an alternative to the bar scene," but it's really just the bar scene with fewer clothes on, and with a sauna. The same attitude prevails, and everyone seems afraid to make a move, but maybe you'll get lucky and meet Mr. Right--or at least Mr. Works-For-Me-Till-Midnight. (27 W. 20th St.)
East Side Club. Same owners, same vibe, pretty much the same rates. It's been there for decades, so there must be some hot, available junk there. Lay down, spread your legs--and play safe! (227 E. 56th Street)
And of course there's always your home. Ever try it?
How would Michael Musto know?
He's not had sex (except with prostitutes) since the days of the Carter administration.
[quote]How would Michael Musto know?
That was my first thought when I saw his name on this.
he does seem eerily to have a bird's-eye-view on the procede of sex for gay males in NYC
But where do you go to meet a nice boy from a proper family with good lineage?
If Musto is visiting tese places, they are to be avoided at all costs.
East Side Club? That place is older then dirt!! Haven't been there in years!
Thanks for making our Vice Squad's job easier.
WOW - I have not been to the West Side Club since the last century - seriously!
This is why they hate us.
The last time Musto lifted the flaps of his caftan, Gerald Ford was president....
This is why we hate Musto.

But not half as much as you're hated.
I'd rather eat out a feta cheesed vag that go near Michael Musto's micro-penis.
The Five Best Places To Have Gay Sex in NYC If You Are Homeless
And Tricking For Food.
Naming the Black Party as an event isn't even helpful. Something that happens one weekend a year isn't going to help you out the other 364 days of the year.
There are CL ads for the East and Westside clubs...from guys over 40 wanting anon BB loads.
There are sex parties all the time in NY.
Lots of people have sex parties in their mouths.
It's sort of like reading an Orthodox Jew describe the 5 Best Places to Buy Ham in NYC.
W & W for [R19]
As long as I've read him, he seems an unappealing man. Facile. Anything he'd find hot I'd avoid. The two baths? A crap shoot, usually you lose.
Well, I met Musto in a sex party, and say what you will about him but he has a big long hard jew cock.
Well, it has been speculated that he's a regular visitor to DL. R22 is all the confirmation you need.
Michael Musto is so fugly I'd lose interest in sex if I saw him at one of these so called parties. There really is nothing redeeming about him. There are tons of ugly guys that have at least one redeeming feature that would make a drunken fumble worthwhile. Not so with Michael. He would turn me onto pussy for sure. Scientology should hire him.

While you wouldn't be going up to him to get laid, many of you would be at his side at any party getting dirt from him.
I've been to Vishara on and off for years and surprised it's still on his list. The quality of the clientele has definitely gone down. There used to be some hot guys there, not it's a sporadic hot black guy and a bunch of fugly old white dudes. The last time I was there a crazy person was screaming in the bathroom. It was terrifying. The only plus is they allow re-entry so you could ostensibly cruise, see a show, and return, etc.
But there are better sex shops in NYC in my opinion.
And yes, I've seen Musto at Vishara totally fucked up showing everyone his cock (which was pretty nice to be honest)
[quote]East Side Club? That place is older then dirt!! Haven't been there in years!
Guess that makes you "older then dirt!!" too.
"Lots of people have sex parties in their mouths."
There's a party in your mouth. Everyone's coming.
Banya was extremely hot and fantastic around 2005-2007 or so. I heard it devolved since then though.
In the category my favorite odd-looking women, he will always be ahead of Drew Droege and Charles Busch.
In the category of Alexander Popisms, if Michael Musto can nail some ass, there's hope for all of us.
What exactly does this man do for a living anyway?
I've been to both West Side and East Side Clubs. It's honestly kind of a crapshoot. My first time at West Side Club was in November 2010 and it was my first time in a bathhouse at all. I didn't really know what to do, so I just kind of wandered around for 2 hours. I wasn't being bold enough, but I appreciated the experience of at least going to one. Once I put my clothes back on and headed out the door, this insanely gorgeous guy walked in with a friend. Once I passed him, he turned around and told me that I needed to come back. He went back into my room and we fucked. He had one of the most beautiful bodies I'd ever seen and said that he was a "model". After we were finished, he left (with his friend). Another time I went there, I was following a humongous, beefy Russian guy in a wrestling outfit all night. I felt him through the singlet and his cock was very thick, even soft. He told me that he was "undetectable". I appreciated his honesty, but decided not to sleep with him.
East Side Club was very dirty and the attendants seemed very contemptuous of the customers. I seriously would not walk around there without flip-flops on. I ended up getting fucked by a 62 year old guy who was in great shape (and the same age as my dad!) He fucked me for about an hour and then drove me back to Brooklyn where I was staying with my cousin. Before we got there though, we pulled off to the side of the West Side Highway and we jacked off again because we were both still horned up.
I'm 34 and live in D.C.

Who does it belong to?
The list is dismal.
the sad part is it's probably accurate.
I really am curious how he knows about this. is this just what he hears, or does he really go to sex parties and cruising places all the time?
No one mentions the ATM room off Shubert Alley?
Great place between shows...
I don't care how big his cock is, he looks like a muppet. An ugly one.
Michael Musto has always had his finger on the pulse of the hottest places to go.
East Side and West Side clubs are (for somewhat different reasons) two of the worst bathhouses in America. It is amazing to me that NYC can't do better.
ESC and WSC have both been so awful for so long, that I assume they only endure because they are fronts for something else.
[quote]Michael Musto has always had his finger on the pulse of the hottest places to go.
Wow, thats amazing! What an insightful genius he must be. Thats a hard job, seeing how there are no publications in NYC which could promote an event or place, no PR firms which get the word out, no network of social butterflies to follow, no other gossip or entertainment columnists in NYC to write about the same things he writes about. And its been that way for the last 30 years. With none of the usual resources available, he must spend every waking moment uncovering things no one would ever know about.
I've been to Vishara and have seen Musto there too. I played with his cock which is NOT tiny and does get very hard, even though the rest of him is yuck. He wears tighty-whitey briefs, in case anyone is interested. Big mushroom head, very hairy.
Musto was the proto Stanford Blatch, surely?
If the rest of him was yuck, why did you play with his cock? What overcame the yuck factor?
I was horny, it was getting late and when I peeked into the booth I saw it was big. It's not like he was 300 lbs and dirty looking. I went for it, just stroked a bit and neither came, I left after a few minutes. No sucking or fucking. My one celebrity sex story.
He's supposed to be a professional writer and he says "lay down"?
This is why you should NEVER go near a glory hole. Michael Musto could be on the other side.
Disgusting, self hating miss-thing. His pee hole probably as the same sniffy-sneer that his mouth does.
[quote] Musto was the proto Stanford Blatch, surely?
He's the proto Stefon, too.
Except Stefon isn't as much of a vile bitch, and people would actually fuck Stefon/Bill Hader.
Musto is truly an angry bitch. Saw him on Olbermann a few years back (obvs, when Olbermann was still on MSNBC) and he was truly cunty.
I dont want to be anywhere near where Michael Musto is, could be, or has had sex.
Thank you, r50.
Musto can be a funny queen thing I must admit. He doesn't take himself that seriously and has his moments. BUT sex with that thing?It makes me want to go straight.....perish the thought!
Oh the one who claimed that asking Musto about sex is like asking OJs(Orthodox Jews) about the best ham in NYC. Guess what some of the OJs know where the best ham in NYC is! It's a forbidden pleasure to them and some of the OJs like it. Some of them get around the prohibition by pointing to it and calling it roast beef......
is he trying to do/be Stefon?
He's always plastering his blog with pics of himself and talking about how gorgeous he is. Delusional or just being sarcastic? who knows? He does get some good dish occasionally. However, he's sober now so his columns (and he) are not as much fun.
What the hell is a Michael Musto? Must be a New York thing.
I saw MM at a sex place in Queens. He kept to himself and held his murse over his pants like his life depended on it. Don't worry Musty, no one was going to jump you.
Does anyone remember that second story booth place a few blocks below Bryant Park? I had good times there.
BUMP for more sex in the NYC talk...
NYC is pathetic when it comes to illicit good times. The sex stores suck, there are no bath houses - aside from the two awful ones mentioned - and the bars don't bring out any hotties.
is it the internet? maybe. but other cities like LA def have more viable options, and there are way hotter guys out and about.
The only phone I have is a work phone, so I can't download manhunt or grindr, so I am more or less cut off from the NYC sex scene,
Paddles, an "after-hours sex club in Chelsea," as profiled in an NY Times article about a unique strain of bacterial meningitis that "has targeted gay and bisexual men, and nobody knows exactly why."
