R26, R17 here. It wasn't the size of the people I saw entering SW that surprised me (although there was that) but the sheer diversity. I'm sure SW attracts a different clientele based on day and time and this happened on a Thursday between 7-9pm. Certainly no one I saw entering were guys you fantasize about finding in a bathhouse - like that cute accountant-type you see on the bus or the handsome trucker you're sure was flirting with you while stuck in traffic. They weren't the clones you see at Roscoe's or Hydrate, nor did they appear to be gym-bodied Instagramers. Just very plain nondescript guys of all shapes, sizes and ages who you might not look twice at passing on the sidewalk.

There was this older gent in Atlanta who kept managing to kill the vibe in the wet areas by forcing himself on guys that had already indicated they weren't interested. When I say old, I was 48 at the time, and he was easily 70s. Maybe 60s. And even though I have a good bod and would have been nice about it, he wasn't having me. He was after the younguns. It was after the bars closed and there were a couple of hot young guys there. So I found somebody, and we were headed back up to my room and the old guy was in front of us. He had picked up his fanny pack (or whatever it was) and a 100 mg Viagra fell out on the floor. 100! My new friend grabbed it and said "lets split this". I had brought it a cartridge hitter and that ended up being in my top 5 fuck sessions ever.
It brings a tear to my eye just thinking about that kid.

There’s plenty of hot young spunk in the tippy top global saunas. But gay investors really need to step up to the plate in NY and London and deliver the world class fuck facilities those cities deserve. I once visited one such (now closed) that featured a sauna, cinema, hotel and fuck club in the one vast establishment! The fuck club included a train carriage and platform!. I’m sure some patrons spent days at a time there.
Babylon in Bangkok IS as superb as its reputation promises (and the masseurs are amazing), and the restaurant overlooking the pool and garden is terrific, but why there aren’t more great saunas of its standard in America and the UK is a puzzle. Apart from Babylon, the world’s best are in Europe (not scandi surprisingly) and Australia.
