Bally Total Fitness sued by man after he slips on cum in steam room and breaks his shoulder.

A Manhattan man is suing his gym for damages after he fractured a shoulder by slipping and falling in the steam room on what he described as a "foreign white substance."

Marc Moskowitz claimed in court papers that managers at the Bally Total Fitness gym on E. 55th St. were aware that gay "cruising and lewd behavior" is "commonplace at the steam room, sauna and locker rooms."

"As a result of the aforementioned activities, there was bodily fluids and other evidence of sexual activity wherever it occurred throughout the gym," according to Moskowitz's suit in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Instead of having staffers clean the areas, Bally simply "left a hose and liquid soap" for people to clean up themselves, the papers state.

As a result, Moskowitz claims, he took a tumble last August and needed surgery to repair his shoulder.

Moskowitz, 66, who lives on the upper East Side, did not state in the papers how much he was seeking in damages and declined to discuss the case with a reporter.

In the lawsuit, Moskowitz defined "cruising" as "the act of searching for homosexual partners in public places" and claimed "it is prevalent at Bally's across the country."

Moskowitz also insisted he had no idea these kinds of sexual shenanigans were going on when he joined the gym.

"In fact, I didn't know about it," his lawyer, David Grover said. "Unless you're involved in that lifestyle you would not know that."

Moskowitz is not gay, Grover added.

"They used to have somebody at the gym who monitored this kind of activity and stopped it from happening," the lawyer said. "A few years ago, they stopped doing this."

Nobody was policing the Bally's gym steam room - and there was just one gent inside shvitzing - when a Daily News reporter poked his head inside Wednesday.

The floor was slick and the two lights barely cut through all the steam.

"I'd say it's not that dark down there," said gym manager Kyrell Buckhead, who said it is cleaned regularly. "It's a wet and slippery kind of place."

Buckhead, who has worked for Bally for eight years but has been at this gym just since February, insisted he knew nothing about guys "getting together" in the steam room.

He also described most of the clientele as "working class."

Buckhead's claims run counter to the Cruising Gays City Hookup Guide website, which has this review of his gym:

"There are 2 LIGHTS in the Steam Sauna. The rear light is out 1/2 the time. When it is OFF the party is ON."

Kyrell is in DENIAL big time. Must have been a big load for Mr. Markowitz tto go down like that.

He should have stayed the hell out of the steam room. It's people like him who ruin it for everyone else.

It's his own fault ... didn't he sign a waiver acknowledging he was aware they were filming the sequel to "Dawson's 50-Load Weekend" while he was there?

Someone is bitter about rejection, isn't he?

Could have been lotion, moisturizer, shampoo...

How does he know it was cum?

Wouldn't locker room floors be pretty slick anyhow being wet so much?

This guy is full of shit. The old bastard should work out at the YMCA.

YMCA stands for Young Men's Christian Association.

Mr. Moskowitz should work out at JACOB - the Jewish Association of Clumsy Old Bastards.

This is nothing but gay-shaming. Slipped on a "foreign substance" my ass.

If he wasn't intentionally gay bashing the establishment, he would have said it was soap.

by Anonymousreply 1806/20/2013

Why should he say it was soap when it was a nacreous layer of eventual permacum?

by Anonymousreply 1906/20/2013

Because someone who wasn't gay-obsessed might have assumed it was soap or anything else.

Bally's in Yonkers is a total bath house, filled with married men cruising

Good luck proving what the white substance was after the fact.

by Anonymousreply 2206/20/2013

If it were soap they'd still be liable

by Anonymousreply 2306/20/2013

Nobody is liable for anything, the man is an asshole looking for a free ride.

by Anonymousreply 2406/20/2013

He slipped and fell on a slippery substance in someone else's property. What is your theory that nobody is liable for anything?

by Anonymousreply 2506/20/2013

"Nobody is liable for anything, the man is an asshole looking for a free ride."

Well to be more exact, it was an asshole looking for a free ride.

He clearly knew it was cum because he had just spit it out and his clumsy Jew ass stepped on it. He should be reported to his rabbi for spilling seed.

by Anonymousreply 2706/20/2013

Cum isn't slippery. It's highly salted. If he slipped it was soap.

by Anonymousreply 2806/20/2013

Didn't he see the sign that said "Caution: Bukkake in Progress"?

by Anonymousreply 2906/20/2013

There are still Bally Fitnesses? I thought these were all sold to LA Fitness a long time ago.

Spoken like someone who's tasted his share of both. Although undoubtely primarily the former.
