The Five Best Places To Have Gay Sex in NYC
Here they are, in all their grubby desperation and/or fascinating appeal:
The Black Party. Just walking to the bar there, you might find yourself suddenly entrenched in a nine-way involving every fetish you never even dreamed of. Wear plastic bags. (March 19 at Roseland Ballroom.)
Banya. A bathhouse-y party that starts slowly, but after the toweled (and usually hot) patrons have had a few thousand drinks, it becomes a nouveau version of the twin cities--Sodom and Gomorrah. (The last time around, they moved the location to Brooklyn, sending a bus from Chelsea. We'll see where the next one is. Even cross-country would be worth it.)
Vishara. A low-rent Times Square video store, the upstairs is lined with booths which are supposed to be only for one, though that's hardly enforced, as long as you put a dollar in the slot for porn films. Some cuties, some mental patients, and some cute mental patients. (8th Avenue between 48th and 49th.)
West Side Club. They say it's "an alternative to the bar scene," but it's really just the bar scene with fewer clothes on, and with a sauna. The same attitude prevails, and everyone seems afraid to make a move, but maybe you'll get lucky and meet Mr. Right--or at least Mr. Works-For-Me-Till-Midnight. (27 W. 20th St.)
East Side Club. Same owners, same vibe, pretty much the same rates. It's been there for decades, so there must be some hot, available junk there. Lay down, spread your legs--and play safe! (227 E. 56th Street)
And of course there's always your home. Ever try it?
