Some people go to the glory hole.
Most rooms have a power outlet so you can distract yourself when you're there with a laptop, DVD player or something. Electronic dance music plays throughout the facility, which is relatively straightforward: lockers and private rooms upstairs, and showers and saunas downstairs.
Originally from Modesto, Calif. Once people realize that we are that private, their worries go away. No complications. I like that they feel comfortable enough to do that here.
And it's always the same ones, some of whom are kind of obnoxious. But until that happens, or until Steve starts to actually advertise locally, the best can be said about Steves bath house is that it's a safe place to go have man to man sex in Reno. Some people wander around looking for people.
So it was really big for me to promote safe sex. Where those places have a varied clientele, Steve's doesn't. If you can find it there.
They could get robbed. Bright spots about Steves? Other than that, it's just a place to go because it's the only place like it in Reno.
Keep doing shows like that because it shows how ignorant they are. Steve there actually is a guy named Steve who owns the place doesn't want to promote the place, probably in fear of being picketed or shut down. It's great if you're an out of shape, senior citizen, seeking other out of shape senior citizens. Steve Daugherty, the eponymous proprietor, is an amiable guy, with a friendly smile, a perfectly coiffed head of gray hair, and a quick, comfortable way of moving and talking.
On a given night, you will see maybe 10 bathbouse circulating around, up and down stairs, like it was a shark tank. Some people go to the video room and hang out. If Steve started to offer discounts to guys under 25, like a lot of clubs do, then at least there might be more eye candy. And here [at the bathhouse] you do know more than you want to know. The bathhouse exists in a tricky space in the consciousness of the community: On the one hand, sexual health specialists like Howell see it as providing an essential community outlet, but a central part of its service is a high degree of discretion.
You also opt for a locker or a tiny private room. He sees sexuality as existing on a free-flowing, open-ended continuum. Yeah, dream on fat boy!. I've only enjoyed oral in the glory hole rooms, but hope to find an anal buddy next time. The ambiance is casual, low lit but not too dark to see, and the place seems as clean and well maintained as a mid-scale hotel. No one will hassle you,but on the flipside, if you have expectations of hooking up with anything better than fat boys and out of shape seniors, you probably bathhoyse be disappointed.
I run into people everywhere I go. Some people stay bahhhouse their rooms with the door open. Examples: the senile old man who's always commenting about they're fucking in San Francisco when he watches porn videos in video room; the Charles Bronson look alike who looks like Bronson when he was 85 and suffereing from Alzheimer's diseases.
The thing about the bisexual community is they live in that world, so this world is really exotic or whatever. Originally called Club Baths, the bathhouse is one of the oldest such places in the batghouse, part of a West Coast network of bathhouses where gay and bisexual men could meet one another without fear of prejudice or the false romances of alcohol inebriation. The people who need to know about it, know about it.
And they know I know. Blaring, dull, gay disco music plays incessantly, and dull men, who sometimes eteves lucky with each other, is about it. Steve's doesn't advertise locally, apparently because it doesn't want to offend the homophobic powers that be in Reno. But really not all that much going on.
Gay map steve's bathhouse
He did a rare interview for Reno's pathetic weekly alternative wteves, and talked about how the place was picketed by homophobes in the past. It's reasonably clean, it's safe, and they provide condoms. Steves in Reno doesn't compare in the same league as any of those places. Maybe Steve's is as good as it can be.
Reno is not exactly a gay friendly town. Time and space.
Seeking real swingers
Additionally, the bathhouse partners with the county to offer free STD testing onsite on a regular basis. So we tell stevfs not to even think about it. Sexuality is private.
