Around the Gay World


I’ve just ended a four year relationship and at the tender age of 47, I’m sort of back on the dating scene, or am I?

When I started the sauna, I kept thinking, isn’t it funny that not more people come to such a place. Technically speaking, hooking up with men in Budapest or in other big cities, does not get much simpler then going down to your local bathhouse, and get together with someone.

Why then, are gay sex clubs not more prevalent?

- Not everybody likes it. Even though the benefits are obvious, some guys simply don’t like the environment that such a business provides. It’s very much ’in your face’. You are not here to ’date’, you are here to ’get laid’. This is probably the reason that saunas do tend to attract guys of a certain age. When one is young, one still has a lot of illusion that eventually disapear.
- Some guys are worried about diseases, and think that they will catch something. As I wrote in my previous entry, I had such an encounter, but still think, the security that you think you might have by hooking up online only, is an illusion. One bad choice of no condom with a guy carrying a virus, and it does not matter.
- Some guys are curious, but are too shy or scarred to push the door of a sauna club in Budapest. It does take a certain courage to enter such a premise. It can also be seen as a public statement. As you enter a gay business, you are saying to someone: ’yes, I am in a gay business, doing gay stuff’.
- Some guys are worried about being seen in such a place. They worry about being seen entering from the street, meeting someone from work. These are minimal risks, but they can happen. It’s a little sad that they will miss out on relaxation and fun that they yearn for, but, it is their choice. And as homosexual people, we all have experience with telling, not telling.
- Finally, some people simply don’t have a very good idea of what a gay sauna is like. They don’t really see it for what it is, a simple way to get your rocks off, spend some time away from the stress of daily life, among people that share your plight.

This Saturday, me and the boys were out promoting our little piece of heaven at the Alterego disco, the loveliest gay sauna in Budapest, the one and only Magnum. While most club kids and men of a certain age were happy to accept our peace offerings, one comment gave me the idea for this entry in our blog.


One of our most successful weekly party, and probably one of the best gay sex party in Budapest, has got to be our very own Dark and Naked, every Friday at 10 pm.

Right on the spot, we lock up half our cruising area, turn down the lights, and make sure that everyone entering the dark and naked area does so without a towel.

It's a raunchy, male testosterone fuelled group event with no holds barred and not for the ones who like to do it behind closed doors. 

Condoms and lube are provided free of charge. 

And to turn up the heat, every third Friday of the month we hold our Dark and Naked: special edition. On that night, the dresscode is not only naked, it's also jockstrap, shorts or underwears allowed.

So, if you're up for this kind of action, make sure not to miss this event. You won't regret it.
