They were described as places for drug addicts, or guys brimming with STIs. Stay home, you'll have more fun there, by yourself. Who decorated that room, his grandmother? Palm Springs. Still, he takes nothing for granted, regardless of the location. The only good reviews this place has is the fake ones they placed. There are showers and lockers, and you spend a lot of time folding towels.
And the attendants were nice and other patrons say it is hit or miss.
Philadelphia bathhouses Club Philly. The latter is not a hook-up spot, but it does have a major following in the gay community, and it's not unheard for guys who cruise each other there to venture over to Club Philadelphia to better get to know one another. The staff was friendly, and the place seemed quite clean. One last visit I waited until the place reopened.
As a college kid in New York, we were warned against bathhouses.
