Default Steamrooms

Has anyone notinced in the last 3 years how many "straight married" guys are letting off a little steam of thier own lately? I have been on 2 all gay cruises and there seems to be the same about of "action" on the straight cruises. Could there be more than just 10% of us or are straight men just getting more open minded?

Mike

ironpecs,
i have noticed more "str8" men who are willing to play with us, the 10%. of course, if all men looked like you, i'm sure the 10% would be the str8s! keep cruising the steamrooms and enjoy!

I have to agree Mike,

For me it has been a trend I first noticed in gyms, then on cruise ships for about the last 5 years. I have also noticed that ships officers & spa crew to be more open and freindly if they happen to be interested. There are lots of ways to get around the "not fraternizing" with the passengers rules

I also think alot of "straight men" are on vacation and its thier to chance to just release some curiosity tension, I think the more relaxed crown and funner ship the more so the men in general. Email me at builtcruisebod@hotmail.com for any cruise stories to share.

Jim

jim,
why is it the men i encounter in the steam never look like you or ironpecs?
i'm sure you guys see a lot of action because no str8 man would guess you to be gay!
to them, you look like another "curious" str8 dude.
enjoy cruising! hope to see you in the steam, real soon!

DON'T BOOK ON the Zuiderdam or Oosterdam and expect steamroom action! The steam and sauna are both built with tile and marble benches with tiny plastic cushions to sit on.

The "Thermal Suite" as they call it on these ships is also COED and costs $15 a visit!

Although there IS a "male only" dry sauna that's free. Unfortunately it's also tiny - room for 3 standing and 3 kneeling ;-)

Well, not everyone in the steam room and sauna is gay guys. Yes people on cruise ships tend to leave their bigorty behind and that is one of the great things about cruising but trolling the gym, sauna, and steam room isn't something that you should be looking to do as a past-time. I'm straight and could care less about your own preferance but just because I am in the sauna and steam room, do not assume I am gay. I have fybromyalgia and the steam room is a blessing for those with this condition and/or arthuritis. Most folks that take advantage of this facility are straight and certainly would not appreciate being hit on to say the least. Just pretty damn tacky in my opinion.

Jim,

I enjoy using the steam and sauna on ships and I'm the type that keeps his hands to himself. "Cruising" steam rooms isn't *my* thing but I don't judge what other guys do in their lives. Having said that, the only times I've been hit on in ships' steamrooms or jacuzzis has been by "straight" men with wives aboard with them. If you think we gay guys are tacky, we don't hold a candle to the straight world.

Warren

Warren,
Almost every gay man and woman I have met have been very nice people and some turned out to be good friends over the years. I have never been approached in the steam room by either gay ot straight people, (not sure if that is an insult or not <G>), and contrary to some reports I don't think it is done all that often, or at least I have never witnessed it. That's a good thing IMHO. People are people and we should judge people by what is in their heart and not on their sexuality or possibility of sex. As for the tacky bit, I agree, tacky has not set rules as to who it is.
Jim
