    or is it, like, just a straight-up robbery

    Typically they case houses.

    But I'm unsure if this is a legit thing. They want to reduce my electric bill. There is a legit business that does this. But, what they do is switch suppliers that are offering a discount. Then that supplier jacks up their energy cost so you end up paying more than if you just stay on the default "cheap" supplier.

    It's probably just dudes casing the joint because they all look like ex cons.

    i mean, i think it qualifies as sex in public

    a lot of gay clubs i've been to have "no two people in the bathroom at the same time" if they want to discourage this activity

    I'm pretty sure bathhouses do not count as sex in public.

    Most of the places I have lived that are apartments the mail is either in locked group mail boxes that have a camera or in a public area or a door slit.

    Also fucking with the mail is a big federal offence in the US and they punish that shit hardcore.

    how do 70s porno hot and 90s porno hot and 2010s porno hot differ anyway

    breast size, body shape, quantity of public hair, amount of plastic surgery...

    recent mainstream porn has been moving towards more slender women who do not have any plastic surgery and are completely hairless downstairs.

    In the 90s, you had landing strips, huge fake boobs, collagen lip injections, teased hair...

    In the 70s it was natural but curvaceous, awful makeup, and full bush...

    Like, you can tell by the body of the woman roughly what era they either made it in, or are trying to recapture, based upon the beauty standards of the time, only exaggerated.

    PM Synd for more details

    such curious

    Are you... talking about a bathhouse? It sounds like you are. Yeah, they're totally a thing. And they usually don't have much street presence, because they don't want people to be worried about being seen walking into them. It's just, like, an unmarked door around the side of the building or whatevs.

    It would not be patronizing to just walk through to check it out, but they generally do make you take off your clothes (and give you a little towel) so depends if you're comfortable with that, plus there's a cover charge to get in and get you're locker.

    What why are you looking at me like that i've totally never

    yeah it's just, not the whole thing is a sauna! it's a new idea to me

    i guess when i thought of gay bathhouses you go in, you jerk a dude off in the sauna, his jizz kind of flows jerkily down the drain in the middle of the room, a vampire languorously uncoils from his corner of the room to bite someone, their blood mingles with semen as it goes down the drain and...

    but in actuality it is like ok you get naked, yes there is a sauna, but then also you walk into other rooms with music and gym equipment and also beds

    but you're naked the whole time

    hmm

    Bathhouses are interesting because they are kind of a hold over from when being out of the closet was dangerous for your health. A place that msm could go and meet others like them in a safe non-descript fashion.

    In 70s gay porn they have blonde shaggy hair, or dark hair and mustaches, they wear tighty whiteys, also they never use condoms. It's all very period.
    nobody uses condoms in hetero porn unless it is a very sketchy enterprise... like, they hire "street talent" or something equally offensive.

    California threatened to require it in all future adult films, and the industry said "fuck it, we can film in vegas if we need to."

    The hetero porn industry is very anti-protection at the moment.

    I remember that initiative!

    It goes both ways in contemporary gay porn. It's just that it used to be a 'never' thing.

    Heh

    hmm

    Yeah, they've always had rooms with beds. Also almost always some sort of dimly lit maze-like public cruising area. I think a more modern turn is that now they also all have weight rooms, then a varying amount of other stuff. Some of them even have, like, cafe foors with food and computers and stuff.

    Also not really naked, just close to it. People walk around with the towels around their waist.

    Also, also: I think they're pretty much dying now. The crowd now skews fairly old. Grindr is ruining them, basically.

    I've run into a few dudes who seemed to actually want to date or whatever. But it's pretty much just for sex.

    i watched aziz' bit about how grindr won't work for straight people

    it is a weird cultural artifact- i wonder how much of it is like, the consideration of danger

    like surely many gay dudes have worries about this since they are also fucking dudes who might be jerks

    but i feel like if grindr would be very successful for gay dudes and moderately successful for gay ladies (or maybe equally successful? i might be projectiong promiscuity on gay dude culture which might not be true anymore- i just watched philadelphia a lot. i love denzel. sniff.)... it would still be a weird, underserving thing for straights

    there is probably a more complete explanation than fear of rape, tho i am not sure how to formulate it

    Someone had their car stolen at work. They live in an area where they feel it's safe to never lock their doors.

    I've lived in areas like that, you always lock your doors. Those are like... the biggest places to get screwed over.

    They literally walked into the house, took the lady's purse, walked over and took her keys, then stole her car.

    All that damage and frustration for what is 1 second of your time. I am baffled. Makes me rebuff why I always lock my door even though my neighborhood is less safe. Mother-in-law always hates it because they go outside for like a half hour to go to the store and I'll come downstairs to see the door unlocked, and lock it, then they come back. Look there's a key right there to my car, you don't do that shit. Take the house key with you and lock the damned door.

    I grew up in an area where it is normal to have four-five separate locks from house to street, and only learnt that this was considered really extreme whilst eavesdropping on an international flight to expats complaining about it

    I wish I didn't have to unlock my door to talk to people panhandling so it's easier to just shut the door and say "no thanks, I don't have the time."

    Like I seriously get pestered every 3 months to deal with some shady looking dudes coming around wanting to look at my electric bill. Sorry it's all digital now.

    "Well how about you print one off"

    "No I don't have a printer."

    "Well I can come in and take a look"

    "No thanks. Don't come back"

    Yet they still come back. I can't wait to get out of apartment living so these fucks don't bug me anymore.

    Pro-tip:
    Even in a house these people show up all the fucking time.

    Yeah, it's the mouth that's the problem. Not really swallowing per se, but popping off in the mouth. Even then the risks are, from what I understand, unknown and/or low. But the bathhouse population is how shall we say a high risk partner pool so maybe no risks.

    I've realized that since I grew up through most of the late 90s stages of the internet, I suspect my perception of how relationships over the internet work is pretty fundamentally skewed from reality. That said, objectively I still don't get how Tinder isn't mostly for sex. I suppose it's a little closer to being about dating maybe? I mean geographic proximity is important in that.
