Berlin Gay Bathhouse Fire
This is sad to read.
A fire at a gay sauna in Berlin, Germany has killed three people and injured one, emergency services said on Monday.
The blaze broke out late Sunday night at The Steam Works club, in the “narrow and winding” small private rooms, making the search by the fire department more difficult, Times Live reports.
Over 80 rescue workers were dispatched to the scene.
“It was a lot of work to break into each room and to check for victims,” a fire department spokesperson said.

“Secrets” Of A Gay Sauna
The only reason I’m linking to this is because I saw it while I was linking to the article above. I really, REALLY despise articles like this because they always sound as if they’re turning gay men into lab rats…in that heteronormative way they have when it comes to anything gay related.
Secrets of the Gay Sauna is a “documentary” that goes inside the “gentlemen’s relaxation zone” of CS2, a popular sauna in Nottingham U.K. Viewers get behind-the-scenes peeks at the management, visitors, and the poor chap whose job it is to clean up.
You can check that out here. There are over 70 comments. One of them makes a clever reference to the closeted straight men who can be found there…
The only “SHOCKING” thing to be found is all the MARRIED men who go there
Millennial Sex Habits
I don’t know how accurate this study is, and it’s not going to change the world much, but it’s interesting.
“[Millennials] are very career oriented,” Helen Fisher, a biological anthropologist who helped develop the survey says, “so sex before the first date could be a sex interview, where they want to know if they want to spend time with this person.”
There’s more here. Evidently, according to this, 32% of the men in the study have admitted to sending dick pics.
