Best men''s rooms in NYC for hooking up?

I know the Port Authority men's room is the old standby, but what are some others? Macy's? Lord & Taylor? I'm not a big fan of the adult book store scene...j a little too seedy for me. So what are the best men's rooms for tricking?

r4, who the hell cares if they hate us? One of the best things about being gay is that it affords us the opportunity to have sex with whomever, whenever, and WHEREEVER we want. The restraints that the hets create for themselves don't apply to us. Now, unless you can offer any suggestions, be off with you. Run along...

Ha. New Yorkers have trouble hooking up in bathrooms, yet they make fun of "flyover country" which really should be called Gloryholia for all its tawdry, filthy bathroom shenanigans.

Bathroom or public sex does not make me feel more "authentically" gay. It seems more like closeted or extremely self-indulgent immature men "acting out" their sexual issues. Lots of it is basically harmless, but a steady diet of it is a signal of a real weirdo or nut bag.

Hotel Paramount on 47th Street of Times Square; men's room in the lobby. The way the two, funnel-like urinals are positioned with facing mirrors, you can easily and plainly see each other's cocks.

I'm siding with the judgmental queens on this one. I definitely have the potential to be slutty and have had my share of cock, but the public bathroom thing is a total mystery to me.

Can someone explain why this is appealing when you can thoroughly vet a potential sex partner on CL or Manhunt first and then have all the dirty sex you want in the privacy of your own home?

Is it the illicit thrill of doing it somewhere public? Is it the anonymity of it? I just can't get turned on by the sights, sounds, and smells of a public toilet. Don't get it at all.

R28, the delusional OP is interested in hooking up in public toilets because he imagines that there he will suck straight guys' cocks, or noodles, as he would say. The usual ways that gay men hook up, in bars or on the internet, are not of interest to the OP, because they only offer him the cocks of gay men.

r28, it is a mixture of what r30 said (except it's no delusion - lots of guys at least leading a married/str8 life), the impersonal, no-tell environment (letting someone into your home, esp from Manhunt, means letting someone into your life, and I believe it a more dangerous pursuit than doing it in a public place), and - in my case - brings me back to my initial, sort of cautious, same-sex experiences of my youth in the good ol' 70's.%0D %0D I am answering r28's question candidly and really have no use for any flaming anyone else may feel the need to throw in my direction. It will not change things with me.

This kind of thing is only for self-hating closet cases who fetishize straight "real men." They have no respect for themselves as gay men, so criminalize their behavior by doing it in inappropriate public spaces as a means of reinforcing how "wrong" it is, and avoid the psychological discomfort of dealing frankly with the self-respecting gay men they'd most likely meet if they dragged themselves into the 21st century and conducted their sex lives in a private space.

R56 I get where you're coming from but I sense something else. It's also about the slam/bam/thank you ma'am mentality of men. Why bother with a date when you can hook up in a bathroom? No witty banter is necessary in a bathroom,just stick your cock in a glory hole and prepare to get sucked. There's also the thrill of getting caught,that heightens the excitement factor considerably.

R52 They are pickup joints for down low men and ones that want a quick thrill.They also must be cheap because a whore or a rentboy would cost too much.......

Gay men have been hooking up in bathrooms since the beginning of time LOLZ. It's just a fact of urban gay life. I've sucked a gazillion cocks in city bathrooms, and I can probably give you a spreadsheet of every men's room in Manhattan, breaking them down by cleanliness, best time to hunt for cock, those that see the most traffic, type of guy (e.g., straight bizman on way home to W'chester; street hustler, etc.), those most likely to be sting operations, which are more condusive to certain sexual acts, among other categories. There's nothing wrong with it. It's safe, fun NSA sex.

R62 Then WTF was that queen George Michael doing in bathrooms then? He had a partner and could have had any rentboy of his choosing. Look,there's a sort of thrill factor of going in there,sucking and swallowing in a matter of minutes. It's also quick and you don't have to bring anybody home either.

by Anonymousreply 6301/18/2013

He as there because he was raised in a culture that discriminated against him as a gay man, and worked in an industry that enforced his denial of homosexuality for many years. This is what educated adults mean when they used the term "internalization." Once he internalized anti-gay attitudes, he continued to act out in ways that reinforced for him the fact that his sexuality placed him outside the bounds of legal behavior and deserved whatever punishment came afterward.

And no, coming out doesn't fix such problems, as evidenced by the many, many, many gay men who continue to make decisions based upon the poor self-esteem they developed while growing up in a homophobic culture. This thread alone has several of them.

by Anonymousreply 6401/18/2013

R64, I'm not buying it. He had a long time lover and could have discreetly gone to an escort. There's a heightened thrill of being caught doing something like that. Same goes for that other Brit,Hugh Grant, who wanted a quickie from a prostitute. He wanted to cum quickly and not go through the ritual of some charming chitter,chatter etc so on. Yeah, I know it was straight sex BUT it's a guy thing. If straight guys could go into women's bathrooms and get some they'd be doing the same thing we're doing.

People, if ya don't appreciate the sort of sex hook ups discussed, Um, change the channel. Keep your judgy out of situations that don't appeal to you or those that, more accurately, you've been too timid to explore. It's simply "not your thing", K? There's no sense in being divisive cause you've nothing else to do. Everyone of us is working it out as are those of you who have an oddly extreme need to scold people you've never met. Truly says way more about those who choose to crash discussion groups and vomit petty, irrelevant and uninvited opinions. Don't be dumb, YOUR discussion is "straight people "hate" us because of bathroom hook ups", (A: straight people don't hate us, B. read a book or two and see if it doesn't illuminate the multitude of complicated factors informing resistance to our civil rights movement and "bathroom cruising" probably doesn't even make the top 20. Our bizarre need to copy heterosexual traditions which are mostly sexist and somewhat antithetical to MODERN understanding of human sexual biology robs us of our collective opportunity to sculpt OUR OWN language, and traditions regarding same sex relationships and using heteros as the bench mark by which we measure our success didn't work during Stone Wall and doesn't now and seeking inclusion there rather than supporting the incredibly vast array of philosophical variance with in our community and giving it some room to evolve is probably better for the gays and a GREAT example for those trapped in an old ideology present almost nowhere in our modern gender equality based re-structuring. We spent the first part of our lives coming building our self worth internally since untill recently we did not exist in any popular external representation. So now we're just gonna toss all that hard earned experience out just to be included in a structure NOT designed for us? .. or any other fully realized human for that matter.

True. As an analogy, you don't even have to be a drug addict to enjoy going to the bathroom with a friend and sneaking a hit. I've never done, but it's something I saw a lot of in college.

Gay men hooked up in bathrooms when they had to make furtive contact. That is no longer the case for openly gay men. For the Larry Craigs of this world, it might be the best they can do. Today, even closets are apt to have internet access.

So some gay men get a "thrill" from exchanging body fluids with a stranger who may or may not have STDs in a smelly restroom, a place where strangers piss and shit and fart? I can't imagine you'd encounter any attractive men there; I guess whoever seeks sex in restrooms takes whatever they can get. It doesn't sound so "thrilling" to me. It sounds desperate.

I used to commute everyday into the city via bus and by the time I got to the P.A. I had to go. I would hit the second floor men's room and it wasnt long before I recognized the familiar faces. They were all so skeezey and sad looking. One was a fat, balding greasy thing who reminded me of the child pornographer in Tales of the City. Another was this little queen with a push broom mustache, blow dried helmet hair and a three piece suite (I guess no one told him it was no longer 1977). They all had that look that just hollered "loser". Good looking men who have it together dont cruise restrooms.

by Anonymousreply 7705/05/2013

I know there is a bathroom in one of the NYU buildings, 7th floor I think that used to be pretty cruisy. I am not sure if Bloomingdale's still is. There are only two men's bathrooms, one on the lower level and one on the 7th floor.

Bathroom fun isn't just a gay thing. It is an exhibitionistic thing. Some people gay or str8, get super turned on by being naked in public places and letting other people see them. Of course a state of arousal leads to a possible hookup. But mostly public bathroom fun is about showing off, catching a glimpse, maybe a groping, comparing cocks.

there are tumblr blogs devoted to this topic, not just NYC , of course, but attached URL has a married dude sucking off some guy in a restroom. also, the term "cottaging" is good to know when in Great Britain.

by Anonymousreply 7905/05/2013

for many gay guys, a bathroom tug is their first experience with gay sex. if you grow up in a small town or in a family that is very homophobic, bathrooms are the places where you actually get to see other mens' cocks. It can be extremely homoerotic and thus lead to furtive sex on occasion. There's nothing odd about it, when you think for a second. Bathrooms are places where men congregate and pull out their dicks. Why wouldn't it lead to sex?
