Try to stop the tide from coming in… I’m 68 and I have yet to be in a gym that did not have hanky panky going on from university gyms, to Y’s to the posher clubs. Ever since I came of age (mid 70s) it’s been pretty ubiquitous. My guess is that it will never halt, men being the horn dogs that they are. Frankly if you don’t look for it or ignore it, it’s pretty much a non issue.

Bally's clubs in Chicago used to have this going on constantly back in the day. When I worked out there in the early 90s, there was a near continuous circle jerk in the steam room, and I even saw guys fucking there (despite it being the heyday of the AIDS crisis). And you'd often see four feet under the curtain in one shower stall.

The Century Mall one was fun as well, but I think that had more of a 'gang shower', which is fun for watching but didn't offer as many play opportunities.

The issue is that folks shouldn't have to contort themselves not to watch people having sex.

It is NOT sex shaming to insist that people have sex in non-public places.

People shouldn't have to avoid the steam rooms or saunas to avoid being an unwilling participant in some exhibitionists fetishes or avoid getting hit on.

Even at "gay" gyms that caters to gay men, not everyone wants to see that - especially after getting a look at some of you people IN clothes. I definitely wouldn't want to see some of you people nekkid and grunting like a rutting pig.

It's really easy on a board like this to dismiss any criticism of locker room antics as moralistic prudery, but the issue is more complex than that. I have no problem with sex in places like this is it's done with a bit of discretion. No one should have any problem with it. But to pretend you won't see this activity unless you're looking for it, is delusional. I've seen some wildly inappropriate stuff within eye shot of kids at a public pool in my town.

My gym in downtown Chicago used to have "nap rooms" in a separate area of the men's locker room. Small rooms with a leather covered daybed, used mainly by old farts in the middle of the afternoon. But the rooms were also popular with some of the members in the evenings for extracurricular activities, even though this particular club was not known for having a gay clientele. I would see guys cruising each other in the showers or the steamroom, then discretely head back to meet in one of the nap rooms. It became such a problem the club had to remove the rooms. Pity.

Still remember being between two hot daddy types in a steam/hot tub area ....one a news anchor and one a somewhat well known restauranteur. Fun was had by all.

I also remember a downtown Y in my hometown that had most of the city hall guys there after work. Still remember the hairy ape of a man who worked in the public works department and worked out there.

Yes, now they all rely on the apps and show up at a stranger's door, and despite the conquest not looking remotely like his 10 year-old picture , and having an extra 40 pounds on him, they go ahead and blow him and get fucked, because by the time they have gotten to the conquest's house, well they're horny and they're there now, so wtf!

It got so bad at some locations of NYSC that certain gays would take over the steam room for sexual activity and if you didn’t fit into their plan they would be nasty to you until you left.

I get it because there were a bunch of ancient pervs who would go to the Harlem branch especially for black men and nobody wants some crypt keeper clawing at your junk. However to take over a gym steam room and act like it’s Studio 54 and you don’t get in because we don’t want to associate with you is ridiculous.

But NYSC was/is the lowest class gym ever. They never cancelled anyone’s membership as long as they could collect that monthly fee. There used to be a mentally ill gay guy who would scream at people if he was trying to get sex and didn’t want others around.

I know you don't want to hear about Oprah, but I spent half an hour on a treadmill looking at her ass crack, so you're going to hear about it. She was two rows in front of me on a stairmaster. It was fairly late at night and it wasn't crowded. She was dressed in cute gym clothes that didn't provide enough coverage for a woman her size. On the stairmaster, there was a significant amount of skin shown between her shirt and pants, with several inches of ass crack. She always had a trainer and a bodyguard with her at that time.

Oprah's downtown Chicago place was in the Hancock Building, which had limited space. Harpo Studios is in the West Loop and is actually closer to East Bank. Based on the timing, she was going after work.

I loved the locker room at East Bank and the massage therapists weren't lookers, but did a fantastic job.

R128, Oprah had a 9600 sq foot 2-story condo on the northeast corner of the 56th and 57th floor of Water Tower Place. She never lived in the Hancock, which could be seen from her north facing windows. (She backed out of the purchase of a full-floor co-op on East Lake Shore Drive when that building's maintenance workers went on a well publicized strike.) While she lived in Chicago, she also had a huge "farm" in Indiana.

When she was going to EBC, she would show up around 7pm in black sweats with a black baseball cap pulled down low. If people recognized her (most did not), they left her alone. She stopped coming to EBC when she purchased an adjoining condo in Water Tower Place to create an in-home gym. It took her a couple of years to sell the condo after she moved to California, and then only after it was sub-divided into three smaller units.

Stedman still comes to EBC when he is in town for work.

Just as there will always be members who will have sex at the gym, there will always be people who will complain (kinda like the DL). The sign is the gym showing the complainers (and their potential lawyers) that they're 'doing something' about it.

It's a sign.

When I lived in West Hollywood there were men hooking up in the sauna and cruising going on at 24 Hr Fitness. I also caught a man in the women's locker room (I am a woman obviously). I'm at a gay gym (mostly) and I end up encountering the one creepy straight man. Apparently he would take a bus in, and go to this gym. No matter what time I would go it seems I'd find him there. He would stare at me on the floor while using the equipment. It was scary because I lived around the corner and I worried he'd find out where I lived. No idea why he singled me out.

One night I had a feeling, and I went into the locker room. I waited around the door/corner and sure enough he walked in. He saw me and ran. Another time, I went in and he was already in there looking under the women's shower. He ran. I told the staff but apparently he jumped over a wall and was gone. I can't remember if they were able to identify him by his membership but I think maybe. There were a lot of various creepy things that happened here.

My other story is I ended up hooking up with the girl at the front desk briefly, I really miss those days in wild WeHo!

Nope, that's not it all. What's "disgusting is how uptight you are about men flirting with one another. That's all cursing is. But apparently you don't know that. Not all eyes that meet suddenly result in sexual hookup. Only a woman ( from a very repressed country) would think men making eye contact because they are sexually attracted to each other is disgusting. If you really are a gay man then you need some counseling.
