We know from other threads (and life) that some are.
So post the gym(s) you regularly go to and whether or not they are sexual bombs.
Include the city, and the branch as well as the name of the club.
I will also include a poll in order to get a read on what this situation is nationwide.
Poll did not work...sorry.
NYSC mostly West 80th. It is so over run with gross old trolls no one (save the trolls) could ever get wood there. However is is near Zabars and I sometimes see my favorite chef in his underwear (smoking body).
Y on West 63rd mostly...
It is a senior center, and despite hopeful looks from some of the grandpa's not a hot bed at all.
However at certain times of day the Vanderbilt Y on the East Side can be. Back showers can be a wanker paradise.
Please do not mention Zabars.
I will mention Zabars if I want. What is your problem...it is also close to FAIRWAY.
every single gym in downtown toronto is gay sex all over the place.I find it really bizarre that everyone acts like they are not interested in you...and then you get into the showers and they beg for your cock....it's nuts.
12st street in Philly.
It's more a Kiki than anything, the gay muscle marys sashay and chantez back and forth eyeballing and rolling eyes at all the guys.
Sex does happen in the downstairs saunas but to very often, too many women.
Mostly old men furiously beating their limp cocks. The best was the guy who left his viagra bottle on the shelf by the showers. Really? Premedicating for the sauna?
What gym, what city R7?
I wouldn't know. I go, work out, then leave.
It might be, but I can't get even a SINGLE look from any patrons.
Gym in Streeterville, Chicago.
Everywhere I go is a sexual hotbed.
Why do I get the feeling OP is planning and extended cross country "gym tour" vacation?
Good for her
Your feeling would be wrong. I am OP and plan nothing of the sort.
I am however curious about how behavior differs in red and blue states, conservative and liberal communities.
R8 Long Island, NY
Old people live on Long Island
my gym is Gold's gym in Hollywood. there is no sauna or steam room so no sex.
[quote]I am however curious about how behavior differs in red and blue states, conservative and liberal communities.
Taking it to a larger scale, the country with the greatest amount of downloaded gay porn is Pakistan.
Very interesting R18.
why must you speak of Zabar's in that tone?
Zabar's has TONS of sex going on in the gefilte fish aisle!
I dropped all my fancy memberships and now go to the Y here in Manhattan. To echo an earlier poster - 63rd is infested with seniors on Cialis. And The Vanderbilt is nuts at times. I've seen some hot silver daddies really going to town there once or twice.
New York Health & Racquet on 14th had a very robust yet under the radar scene when I was going there a few years ago. As did Equinox on Wall Street.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) I cant get it up in saunas/steam rooms otherwise I'd be in sexual compulsives anonymous by now.
I've been to several gyms in New York which are but finally have found one that, blissfully, is not. For a while I enjoyed the games, but I'm over them, and now just want to get my workout in and leave. If I want a sex club, I'll go to one.
R23 share...which one is not.
Can those discussing NYC gyms also say if any of them have open or group shower rooms?
In NY only the Y's have open showers. All the others have private showers.
Do lesbians do this? Have sex clubs and sex at gyms?
[quote]Do lesbians do this? Have sex clubs and sex at gyms?
Most lesbians don't do gyms. They get their exercize by loading and unloading furniture on U-Haul trailers.
R23, NYC has sex clubs? Could have fooled me
I know nothing bout no sex clubs.
Free hand jobs!
Equinox at Park/33rd has HOT HOT HOT guys working out all the time but nothing more than a little showing off (lotioning up for 5 minutes) in the locker room and some very light cruising in the steam room. Snooze. But if you like to watch hot guys working out, there is ample supply of late 20's/early 30's guys with great bodies all day long.
I get my gunt eaten out at Curves all the time!
Every and any NYSC. 51st and Lex and Madison and 36th have the most action going on any time of the day or night. Management doesn't care. I once showed up at 6am for a workout and there were already about 10 guys in towels wandering around looking for cock. The late Ed Koch would hit 51st and Lex every morning and cruise. Ok, I didn't say the guys were hot I just said there were a lot of them.
Ballys in Kew Gardens, Queens. In 8 years of going there I've never once seen even the remotest hint of any cruising or sexual activity, either directed to me or anyone else. Ever.
51st an Lex? Are you kidding? The steam/sauna area is empty 90% of the time.
Hell no to Planet Fitness, think I'm the only gay person in the place
We shouldn't speak of Zabar's at all! If you know your DL history, you'll know why.
R35 I live in Kew Gardens. Be grateful there's no sexual activity going on there. Ugh.
R36 Manager at NYSC 51st and Lex
DC gay here. Have a membership to Washington Sports Club (WSC). I have the passport membership so I can go to any of the DC locations. They all have action, but some more than others. The most active ones are: K Street, DuPont, and Columbia Heights. There are TONS of missed connections posted for WSC.
Many years ago I saw George Snuffleguppalus and his hairy crotch (tiny cock) taking the longest shower with the curtain open at the WSC at Dupont.
No actual action that day, but a lot of showing off.
r39, it's abundantly clear when you go to the Ballys in Kew Gardens that the hot muscular guys working out there do NOT actually live in Kew Gardens itself, because they can't afford to; they travel from nearby neighborhoods like Jamaica. I agree with you that Kew Gardens residents themselves are generally not very attractive.
In SF, the sexual activity in the gyms has reduced significantly.
Our two "Fitness SF" gyms (formerly Gold's) have closed their steam rooms due to hanky panky, yet it doesn't stop shower cruising.
The old Crunch on New Montgomery used to be a bathhouse, but they renovated and removed the steam room and gang shower, and created shower stalls.
The 24 Hour Fitness chains which have steamrooms and Jacuzzis are co-ed, so one must be discrete and wear bathing trunks.
Just ain't as fun as it used to be.
I just got a sound butt fucking from a hot daddy type today at my gym
R45 How proud your family must be
[quote]my gym is Gold's gym in Hollywood. there is no sauna or steam room so no sex.
Why do you go then? Are you locked into a contract?
Desperate trolls with no self respect
Honestly, OP, the way to evaluate this is to go to Craigslist for cities around the country and read the M4M Missed connections and see how many of them involve gyms.
There's usually several messages from guys hoping to follow up on something they did or almost did at the gym. I would have said my gym was totally chaste, but lately I've been seeing a bunch of stories on Craigslist about something happening in the showers or the sauna at my gym.
Speaking of desperate trolls NYSC has closed the steam at 80th (it is not really out of order) there is talk of getting rid of it in a couple of days during the 'club refresh'.
They really want to get rid of King Troll and Birdman but can't seem to catch them in the act, so closing the steam is the next best thing.
Oh someone wants to decide for him which gyms to visit, huh?
What is a "hotbed" precisely? People use that word in the manner the OP did, but what is a "hotbed" in actuality?
R54 Look it up?
David Barton 23rd St (NYC) lots of action in the steam and showers. Equinox on Greenwich, same thing. Both places full of hot bodies. I don't engage myself, too shy, but boy does it give me great jo material.
This morning electricians were repairing the light fixtures in the steamroom at NYSC on 36th and Madison. They also put a locked box around the light switch to make sure the lights stay on. Won't stop the action though.
[quote]my gym is Gold's gym in Hollywood. there is no sauna or steam room so no sex.
Do you get a no sex discount?
NYSC is adding signs about 'activity' and turning off the steam and sauna as well as putting towels on the lights.
Like that will help.
Use direct language kids...no sex, or if you have sex have it in full light and get real hot.
Slightly OT but thanks so much to the guy who smeared feces on the shower curtain at the NYSC on Mercer. So did you wipe your ass with the curtain or just smear it in with your fingertips.
NYSC 94th & Broadway Monday Evening after yoga class around 9 pm!
Stuff on this thread worth bumping.
NYSC on 23rd & Park usually has zero action going on, but finally, this past Monday evening there was a little sumthin' sumthin' going on. This cute guy enters the sauna, looks at me and starts jerking off. This being my first time seeing something finally happening, proceed to aimlessly tug on my dick (couldn't get hard as I'm a little nervous, too). Another hot guy with a donkey dick enters and starts jerking off as well and also is serving as our lookout. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately, however way you want to look at it), we really couldn't keep anything going since one of the staff members had this great need to keep cleaning the same showers near the sauna.
R64 I always get sucked off at 23rd and Park...Hmmm. Daily.
By the same person, r65?
R66 no...3 regulars but there have been others.
Stop doing this, guys. It's a whole new day. We're allowed to not hate ourselves...and, get this, even like who we are. I know that's a novel concept for some of you. And I promise you, that when you like yourself, you won't feel the need to engage in this type of lewd public illegal behavior. Only guys who detest themselves, whether consciously or subconsciously, get a thrill out of this cheap and demeaning activity. So c'mon, take my advice, learn to like/love yourself and you'll never wanna enter a sauna or steam again. I promise you.
R68 you are full of shit. I love myself, I love my cock. I love to get my cock sucked. What the fuck is your damage?
That's a unique outlook from R68 who thinks people have orgasms because they hate themselves.
When David Barton opens soon in the old Crunch at Christopher and Greenwich Streets let's have a report on the activity there.
Well, now the police know where to go to bust people for public lewdness.
Wrong, r70, that's hardly a unique outlook. It's not just about getting off. People who like and care about themselves don't have sex with strangers in public areas. That's simply common sense.
They're simply going to where sex is readily available. They want to have some hot sex, not a "til death do us part" commitment with one guy. Why is that so difficult to comprehend?
I'm sorry, R61, I was in a hurry.
r74, then get a room or find some secluded spot somewhere. A gym isn't the place for it, it shows disrespect for other people who just want to go to work out.
Recreational no-strings sex is fine, but not everywhere. Your libido shouldn't trump your common sense.
OH my gawd, yes. The gang showers are adjacent to the steam room with a glass wall and a partition at waist level. Soooo...you can make a nod and an acknowledgment and proceed to the steamer. Additionally, the sauna is beyond the end of the sink area, which is really private...big plus, the mirrors outside the cedar framed glass door are situated as such to keep an eye out for potential surprise visitors.
Whomever designed this locker room had to be onto this sales point! Even the lockers are a labyrinth of mystery.
Unfortunately, the hot tub was a unisex, suits only common area. You rarely saw anybody use it, the gym shut it down and built a floor over it...
Well, damn R65, what time are you going? I've been going lately during noon time, and it is a total dead zone. Went 3 times during the evening last week, and like I mentioned before, Monday was alright, but the staff kept looking. Tuesday evening was dead. Some action might have happened Thursday if I didn't have to leave early. You didn't happen to be there this past Thurs. were you?
Having a good jerking off session there is tough, so you getting sucked off daily there is impressive!
R77, where is this?
in his dreams.
...in his feverish little mind.
R78 I go in the morning before work.
I'm not in NY, in NJ. I saw some hot guy jerkin it in the dry sauna. His balls were covered with warts. Nasty whore.
R84 that'l learn you...no one goes to Jersey for sex.
Anyone know if there's any good action that takes place at the NYSC at Union Sq?
Not a huge amount of action at my Y. But semi-regularly, there's a hot, fun jack-off and kissing session in the gang showers. Shower and/or steam room sex is a big turn on as long as there are just a couple of guys when no one is around. (Straights taking long showers--get the fuck out.)
And yes, I do workout, but getting off in the showers after exercising or yoga is a nice treat.
I always check out women in the gym.
Lesbians aren't into fun stuff like gay men are.
R88 kissing really? That is so much more intimate than a blow job. I would let a guy suck my dick, but would never kiss a stranger.
[quote]kissing really? That is so much more intimate than a blow job. I would let a guy suck my dick, but would never kiss a stranger.
Funny, Ive kissed this guy in the steam room a few times but yesterday, as he blew some gross guy, I realized I won't ever do that again.
r77 and r88, are these NYC gyms? Which ones? I would love to find a gym in NYC with gang showers.
We had a whole thread years ago about the midtown Equinox on Broadway and at that time there were things going on there.
R92 R88 CLEARLY states the Y, so your question has already been answered.
I heard that NYC doesn't have any gay bath houses anymore, is that true?
No activity at my gym, which is fine by me. That kind of thing skeeves me out.
But I've been going later this week (around 7:00 -8:30) and I've found a lot of hot guys go at that time. Last night, one guy forgot a towel so he asked his buddy (who was also showering) if he could borrow his. Great looking ass on the guy. And tonight was a hot blond ex-Army guy talking about leading his son's scout camping trip this weekend. He was naked holding his towel telling the story. Nice.
R95 I hear there are two bathhouses but they are mostly for pozzed out guys who could not get laid in better lighting.
JCC Beachwood. Who'd have believed it!!!!!!
I guess I got my answer about the Union Square gym as I was able to see some hot sucking action. I'll see what happens when I come back on Tuesday.
None of these scenarios are hot. They all sound dirty and germy. Ew.
Poor innocent L.A. always gets left out of these threads.
I hear Bodybuilders is busy in the early a.m.
OMG, Saturday night at one of the NYSC locations was off the chain. Are we allowed to say which location?
In Toronto EVERY [italic]Goodlife[/italic] downtown is a pretty much a bath house.
The only exceptions are McCaul Street and the Manulife Centre - but those are horrible facilities.
[quote]Poor innocent L.A. always gets left out of these threads.
That's because in LA most gyms have coed steamrooms and saunas. It's hard to find one that's not built that way.
Of course, R103, how else where we know to look?
Still want to know if r77 and r88 were talking about NYC gyms with gang showers, and if so, which specific ones.
(r94, just knowing it was a Y doesn't actually answer my question.)
ALL YMCA's. ALL YWHA's. ALL YWCA'S.
All Y's you freaking idiot all Y's in NY have gang showers.
R103 36th and Madison. Where else? On a separate note, why do they keep running out of towels?
Predatory gays ruin the best gyms.
I'll admit to having a double standard about guys who fool around at the gym.
When they're ugly and troll around, it's disgusting.
When they're hot and have great bodies, it's a fantasy fulfilled.
But, what can I say? I'm a fickle gay man.
R112 we all have the same standard. Trolls ruin everything.
NYSC at 36th and Madison has got to be the filthiest, most poorly run gym in NY. By the end of the day the towel bins are overflowing, bathrooms are digusting, floors are dirty, shower curtains hanging off, never have any clean towels and run out of toilet paper quite frequently.
But, in the plus column, you can always find some action there.
Why are you taking dumps at the gym, r114?
R115 I don't like taking dumps at the gym but sometimes cardio stirs things up and I can't help it.
[quote]Well, now the police know where to go to bust people for public lewdness.
Public lewdness?! How is a private gym locker room public?
NYSC at 80th has EVEN MORE TROLLS. The vultures on Viagra were running the place yesterday.
The hot dudes at my gym almost never go the lockerroom. They come to the gym in workout clothes or wear backpacks from which they quickly change on the gym floor. Only old dudes and creepers go into the lockerroom, with a few exceptions.
"NYSC at 36th and Madison has got to be the filthiest, most poorly run gym in NY."
Clearly you've never been to the one near City Hall. Yuck.
I let an old troll top me in the steam room this morning. I was horny as hell, foot traffic was lighter than normal, and he had a big old beercan of a cock. I thought of Lukas Ridgeton the entire time. Just what my gooey needed!
R121 NEVER touch a troll, he will be on you like white on rice til the end of your days.
I was reminded of this thread and the deleted "Do you think gym management is aware..." thread this afternoon. I was showering at NYSC and was gauging the foot traffic through the one-way see-through curtain. From my stall, I could see the doors to the sauna and steam. One of the managers was showing a prospective member around. He was about to show him the sauna, but before he went in, he quickly knocked on the sauna door, seemingly to give the guys the head's up that he was coming in there with a possible member. I thought that was kind of funny and telling...I guess most of mgmt are aware of what goes on down there. Good thing he did knock, because the boys were going at it today.
So what is happening at City Spa in LA these post-Travolta days?
For those that play.. how many times do you mess around with a guy in the steam/sauna before you get bored with him?
Do you feel obligated if you're in the room with someone you've messed around with before and they're looking for action?
Yes. On another note, I think it's pathetic when gay folk hang around the locker room to watch the straights get naked.
R128....how do you know which are the straights?
The straights wear brief and boxers. The gays wear boxer briefs. Do try and keep up.
[quote] For those that play.. how many times do you mess around with a guy in the steam/sauna before you get bored with him? Do you feel obligated if you're in the room with someone you've messed around with before and they're looking for action?
The key to a NYSC's success as a hotbed is that there are enough people looking but not too many that it becomes a real shit show. 40 people looking to play can't discreetly navigate a NYSC shower/steam room. (Here's looking at you Chelsea)
I go to a few NYSCs in Manhattan that reliably have action going on. There are a few people that I've been with that I will instantly mess around with again, it's sorta unsaid. There are a few that I wouldn't. I never feel obligated, but knowing WHO is OK with play is helpful.
I think something must have happened recently at one of the gyms I go to. I haven't been there in a few weeks and when I went yesterday, I noticed there was one of those Zero Tolerance signs. I don't remember seeing it before, but maybe I just never paid attention it.
Aside from that though, they did something to the timer so that you can't turn the dial past 10 minutes. I think because of this, the room doesn't get as steamy as it used to and it makes it so that now from the outside, you can see into the room clearly see what people are doing or not doing.
NYC, down in the Village @ Equinox on Greenwich has been "fun" off and on. If you want to, hookups are easy.
What's the deal with NYSC's lack of towels lately? Is it a way of discouraging guys spending hours there at a time looking for sex.
R135 Always carry a towel with you... I do.
I miss the 'small' towels NYSC used to supply. They made great cum rags.
I wish to hell my gym was slightly sexual, there is a straight Puerto Rican trainer with a leg tattoo and an ass to rival Beyonce's butt who is perfection. I would pay a fortune for him to sit on my face.
R131 is full of shit. The only obvious underwear is skimpy briefs (often 2xist brand -- sooooo cheesy). It is hardly true that boxer briefs are worn by gays any more than straights. Completely ridiculous.
R132, I feel like surely I must know you from the gym already.
There's a seemingly straight guy at my gym who always showers with the curtain open. He's not making eyes at me, but his ass is always on full display. An open invitation? Or does he just like showing off. It's a mixed gym, so he could be straight - could be gay.
Can guys on the outside of the stall see in thru those blue shower curtains at NYSC? If they can, I may be in big trouble at 94th/Broadway.
So many whores on DL.
R140, haven't you looked at the curtains from the outside as you pass by? You can't really see anything going on inside unless you're at one of the locations where the overhead lighting in the stall itself casts shadows and illuminates the guy and his body movement inside. That is not the case at 94/Bwy.
Watch out, though, if you're at the SoHo location. Or in the one stall at Irving that's adjacent to all the others. (Yes, we see you looking into the sauna at us.)
Thanks, r142. I realized that tonight that people can't see through the curtains because the stalls are not lit. That's a relief. I thought for sure someone saw me the other day. I was extra horned up after being interrupted by a troll while I was blowing a guy in the steam room. I quickly ran out waiting for the troll to leave so that I could finish the guy off. Tick tock tick tock, I was rock hard with anticipation, and JOed in the shower. I could've sworn some guy saw me thru the curtain as I ejaculated, but sounds like that wasn't the case. Despite my "activities" I do try to maintain some discretion. Well, as much disrection as cheap cum slut like I can maintain, snicker.
No, out gmail is filled with sane, normal people with morals, not freaks and perverts.
[quote]No, out gmail is filled with sane
The cum was flying left and right in the steam room today. And more than a little bit found its way down my throat. A lot of pent-up loads after the holiday were in need of release. Yes, I'm a little slut.
r148, please tell me you're a frau. It's perfectly natural to guys to need release after a workout.
Which gym R147?
And I bet you R148 is the type that slurps up every last bit of jizz from every troll that enters the steam room.
I wish mine was! I'd be motivated to go.
R152 post it on Cruising for sex and every 90 year old troll in the world will start coming to cruise you.

Do you queens telly think sex goes on at David Barton gyms? Seriously.
R38 I got some MAD head in the 2nd flr bathdoom from a Frenchman once @ Zabars on the UWS.
Attention steamroom whores: THE STEAMROOM AT NYSC ON 36TH AND MADISON IS OUT OF SERVICE!
for how long, no one knows.
R157, do you know if the steamroom has re-opened?I need to make a decision whether to go to the 36th & Mad location or Union Sq. location this week.
My gym was like a bath house yesterday. It was unbelievable. There's usually some action to be had, but yesterday it was just ridiculous. In the time I was in the steamroom there were no less than 15 guys fucking around or trying to get something started. The hottest part was when there were about six of us in the room and we all knew what was up. So much sucking and jerking. Eventually, three of the guys started a chain with each one fucking the other, while another guy blew one of the guys getting fucked.
I can't believe so may guys are willing to do it bareback. I didn't participate in that but I'll admit it was hot to watch.
A couple of the guys wanted to suck me or have me fuck them, but I don't get into that in these situations. One of the guys asked me if I could come on him, so I complied.
Can't wait to get back there!
But did you have a good workout, R160?
Yup. And after an hour and a half of working out, I was horny as hell. Great way to get off.
This? This right here is why they hate us.
R160, what gym?
r160, either identify your gym or shut the fuck up with your goddamn "Dear Penthouse" scenario!!
Real men 'get off' after working out; ancient Grecian secret to happiness.
Arrest the perverts
I wish. I've looked for such a gym in my area, with no success.
I don't care about "this is why they hate us," I care that it is disgusting.
R167 is right on target.
[quote]Real men 'get off' after working out
Oh spare us, gramps.
TONS of flirting and meaningful glances right left and center, not much sex.
If you younguns don't get the sticks out of your asses and start fucking around, there might not BE any gay men in a hundred years.
94th St/B'way NYSC has been even more of a bathhouse than usual. All the closeted new year's resolutioners have given up on working out and now just head right to the sauna/steam. Some are trolls, some are good looking. It's a toss-up. They unfathomably promoted that homophobic maintenance guy who used to patrol the area to some sort of management position. Now no one's minding the store, so to speak, so it's a free for all, with cum flying left and right. I fucking love being gay in nyc!!!!
It's sounds like the layer of permacum on the floor is moving up the walls R178.
Sounds like you've had every stick in the forest up your ass R177!
My friend and I were walking out of the gym to our car. This guy, early twenties, probably about ten years younger than us, walks up behind us. Cute enough guy, if a bit average looking. In good shape. Says that he's new in town, and needs to get a job. My friend and I look at each other like WTF, make some comment about our workplace isn't hiring. He says he was just in the locker room, talking to one of the trainers about getting a job. Again, my friend and I trade WTF looks, say something like 'good luck then'. He says something about how badly he needs a job, but by now we're in the car and pretty much driving off. Only talking about it on the drive back did we figure out he meant a BLOWjob. Weird incident.
The LA Fitness gym in Rosewood, Minnesota has been plagued with crime in recent years. Roseville police responded to 147 incidents there in 2013 and have already gone to 24 incidents this year.
Three adults, Ali Yusuf Barre, 18, of Minneapolis; Abdirashid Yasin Duad, 18, of Minneapolis; and Mohamed Awil Suleiman, 20, of Burnsville, have been charged with disorderly conduct and participation in a riot.
What about 40 and 50 year olds who "hang out" with 16 and 17 year olds at the gym and after work outs? What that's about?
You've never heard of a Sugar Daddy, R187?
Do you hang out with high school kids, R188? Just curious. Whatever floats your boat.
I love Roseville.
I love hot sex
Nice stories, fellas, but here's the unvarnished truth for 90% of the gyms in this country, 90% of the time. There is nothing, and I mean nothing, less sexy or sexual than a YMCA locker room. The men are fat and saggy old. They smell. There are things flopping about that would make an experienced ER doctor lose his cookies.
Alas, locker rooms are not sexy at all. They're disgusting.
Then you go to cheap gyms.
I assure you, R192, I use some very sexy locker rooms. The aroma is intoxicating. The men are usually young, built, and sometimes gorgeous. Where do you live?
Yeah, R192, you're going to the wrong gym.
Mine is cheap (for the city that I'm in) and I go at off-hours, but there's still at least one hot guy in the locker room. They're never there for fooling around but I'm happy enough with the eye candy.
I belong to LA Fitness in suburban Philly. Like R192, I seldom see a really hot guy in the gym locker room. Even the young ones tend to be quite ordinary from a physique point of view.
There is the occasional ripped stud, but 98% of the people at the gym are pretty schlubby looking.
