Are any of you trolls?

If so why do you troll?

I have noticed many, many locker room trolls. Seniors on Cialis, Vultures on Viagra. No matter what the vibe they are aggressive and demanding and constantly trying to bring attention to their junk.

I have no problem with consensual sex, even in a steam room if it happens, but I do have a problem with non consensual trolls following me around and staring as they keep their junk stimulated.

Do you ever get a guy to go for it? Is that why you persist?

Do you go home and jerk off on the images you store in your fetid mind?

Really what is in it for you to spend hours and hours and hours in a locker room staring and annoying everyone?

The Hearty Boys do not use steam rooms. We're stars, baby!

It is a bit annoying, but nothing that a simple 'Thanks, but no thanks' can't take care of. Few come back around with an interest once they've heard a 'No'. At least in my experience. And if I hear a 'No, thanks' when I'm out, I move on too

by Anonymousreply 210/05/2013 have to be kidding. Thanks but no thanks does nothing. Get away from me motherfucker moves them only 10 feet.

R2...hysterical. Trolls cannot hear no, they cannot understand pushing them away. They respond to no normal human signals.

Oh well, maybe the 'trolls' I've met aren't the kind you're talking about or dealing with. It must be embarrassing at some point for anyone who doesn't just give it up and walk away after they've been rejected.... especially if they didn't take 'no' the first time (or second, or third, .....)

Yet they are never shamed. There are trolls at 80th who have been at it for years and years.

They also hiss.

I have never met a hissing one...I might hiss back.

O curse your fatal attractiveness that makes all men follow you around!

Dear God, why did you have to make him so consummately hot?

by Anonymousreply 910/05/2013

I have a penchant for correcting the bad grammar of others.

BTW, does anyone know why that's called "Oh, Dear" around here (as opposed, say, to "Oh, you fucking idiot, there you go again")?

by Anonymousreply 1010/05/2013

R9 WHAT planet do you live on, one need not be hot for a troll, just breathing and reasonably attractive.

R20 is a troll

by Anonymousreply 1210/05/2013

R10 you might consider reading the thread.

Different kind of troll.

Oh Dear!

R20...on what thread?

Oh, good, R13. You're also R6, who wrote these words of genius:

[quote]There are trolls at 80th

Did you mean W. 80th or E. 80th? And at which corner?

by Anonymousreply 1610/05/2013

OP, dear heart, how long have you had this compulsion to control what other people do every place you are?

by Anonymousreply 1710/05/2013

R17 how long have you had this compulsion to use hyperbole and generalizations?

I would never want to control a troll, I just want them to troll away from me.

Just as you have no intention of making everyone in the world not fart, yet I would bet you prefer that they not all fart in your face.

by Anonymousreply 1810/05/2013

Yes, I'm a troll, but no one knows. I don't lurk and hang out in the locker room and showers too long. I'm very discrete. But make no mistake. I'm a troll.

by Anonymousreply 1910/05/2013

The Hissing Trolls are back. That was one of the more enjoyable DL threads. And now that I'm old enough to be a hissing troll myself, I check other guys out in the locker room, but everybody does. I'm very discreet.

[quote]I do have a problem with non consensual trolls following me around and staring as they keep their junk stimulated.

When I was young, I was a magnet for hissing trolls in bathhouses. This one time, I had my eye on someone when a hissing troll took a seat to my right. Closer he would inch, staring at me, a bony hand reaching over ever so slightly as he pulled himself close enough that I could smell the desperation.

I began to puff furiously on a cigarette (this was the 70s), trying to create a smokescreen as a deterrent. But this particular troll had lungs of steel. I was determined to drive him off. With each inch he gained, I took another puff, not inhaling, just exhaling, until we were both enveloped in a noxious, mushroom-shaped, smoke cloud.

At last, the guy stood up, began to leave, stopped, and hissed at me over his shoulder. It wasn't a hiss like a steam iron, it was more like a muted roar, like you might hear in one of those movies about Vampires.

lol, R20, Thanks for your stories. Would love to hear more.

R20, you made me laugh.

I used to go to a Russian Jewish steam room in Denver, very old, in the sort of neighborhood where no one drove on Saturdays. A wonderful place, full of men 90 years old who looked 60 "because we've been taking a steam here three times a week for 50 years." It was an alternative to the gay bath houses and clubs - sometimes a man just wants to have a steam without the other stuff. And they were hilarious, beating each other with the big sponges and giving each other massages. Very kind and manly. They even let me into the clique.

But there were a few lurkers and cruisers (obviously). I walked into the sauna once and the most creepy of the old twats (not one of the brethren) had a redneck guy in there with him, who I finally noticed had a hard-on under his towel (Most people just waggled around, so I should have been aware.) He quickly left, and the old thing was so incensed he picked up a bucket of water - cold from a faucet - and threw it at me and stormed out.

I couldn't stop laughing, partly because of the display and partly because I was naive (for once). But I was rather glad that the creep was interrupted, although in an overtly gay space it would have been rude of me. I wouldn't have wanted Shlomo or Morey to have walked in. Those old guys weren't dumb but they had different kind of respect for the place.

And old Gertie, who ran it, would have chased the guy out with a broom if I had mentioned it to her.

Yes and I have lots of friends.

No, no. Yes, yes. All the same.

I was at a bathhouse probably 15 years ago, and hooked up with this really cute guy in one of the open play areas. It was a Saturday night after the bars closed so the place was packed. We were sortof off to the side in an alcove when this ENORMOUS blubbery chub of about 350 lbs saunters right over to where we were, standing and making out while jerking each other off, and tries to join in! It was so annoying and presumptuous. We had to both hold our arms up and say "NO!" like he was an hyperactive retriever. Then he just stood there and stared at us with this pathetic mixture of dejection and lust. It was so creepy and off-putting I wound up breaking away from the cute guy and going home. I think the fatty was on drugs. He was seriously fucked up. He looked like a naked John Candy in nerd glasses, but uglier and fatter, and had a completely hairless pasty white body with rolls of fat. I swear he had a 50 inch waist and a pair of DD cup moobs. Ugh! As if!

Great stories.

So far only a few have admitted to trolling, but claim to be discreet. Uh huh--that's what they all say. The most insidious trolls obviously have zero self awareness, so they wouldn't know "discreet" if it hit them over the head.

by Anonymousreply 3110/06/2013

I use a locker room to shower and change. If I went to a bath house I'd expect that there would be aspects that aren't pretty. I find it amusing that guys who want to use public spaces to cruise and have sex are affronted that other guys who want to use public spaces to cruise and have sex are spoiling the vibe for them.

by Anonymousreply 3210/06/2013

R32, I'm fine with everyone and anyone using bathhouses and other sexual venues as they wish, but agressive actions like what I described at R28 are out of line. It's especially off-putting when the person pawing and leering at you is many, many levels beneath you in terms of physical attractiveness.

At 44 I'm probably a 7 on the attractiveness scale; I'm fit, conventionally handsome and I have all my hair, 99% of which is still dark. Still, I would never start groping the first 10 I stumble upon in a bathouse. I might cruise him a bit if I'm feeling particularly confident, but once he indicates his disinterest (which can all be done non-verbally and from a distance upto 20 feet away) I'm over it. It's pathetic to gawk and attempt to manhandle someone who's already rejected you, but it's obnoxious in the extreme when you're an obvious fuggo with extreme obesity chasing after someone who's much better looking. Get some self-awareness!
