Around the Gay World

It's easy, after being oppened more then ten years, to loose sight of what and who we are, were we came from. So here is a little bit of history and info on the Magnum sauna.


I oppened the Magnum sauna in 2001, taking over the lease on a gym that was for sale. You can still find the weight equipment in our gym area that came with the business.

As they say, Magnum sauna is not the only sauna in europe worth visiting.

A few weeks ago, I returned to my hometown of Lausanne, Switerland and visited the Pink beach sauna which oppened in 1989.
Considering that Lausanne is not a very big city, the Pink Beach is quite big with, if I remember correctly, 1500 sqm to have fun in and relax. They advertise as the biggest in Switzerland.

It's always sad when people pass away, like Robin Williams and Lauren Bacall recently. Somehow, it makes us face our own mortality and aging.

It's also sad when a gay sauna one might have visited once or regularly, closes down.


This is what happened at the beginning of the year for the Hollywood Spa in Los Angeles.

You can read the full report here:


Gay saunas in America were especially hard hit when the Aids epidemic hit as they were seen as a hot bed of sexual promiscuity. Owners argued that they were actually a vector for spreading information, but of course, both sides have good arguments. I'll discuss this in another feed.
