A Sauna Story

I was talking to a former employee of what used to be the "top gym" in the Philippines. The FTG (former top gym) in the early 90's, had a sauna and steam room that was notorious for gay cruising. For this reason, according to my source, the FTG management decided to close down all their sauna facilities citing the public danger of fire accidents it poses to its clients (can you actually find any sillier reason than that?)

Fast forward to 21st century, the gym market is dominated by Fitness First and Gold's Gym - all popular among gay men. And the former top gym? They are barely existent.
