The Greatest Day

I have to tell you about one of the greatest experiences I had recently at The Club. I always have fun there, but about a week ago the weather was horrible. I decided to hit up the place after a somewhat boring day stuck inside. What better place to be stuck inside, eh? So I headed over and it was pretty obvious that I wasn’t the only one with this idea. There were men everywhere.

The locker room was full of men changing and chatting, all very casual and fun. It was one of those environments where the term “boys will be boys” rang true. Everybody was laughing, talking about the weather, sex, movies – small talk. It was impossible not to join in and share in the revelry despite the gloomy sky.

I decided it would be best to shower off first, and I had become accustomed to doing this on days I was feeling at ease and not shy. The thing about the one shower area in this place is that it was pretty open. Guys pretty much could see you from all areas of The Club. I showered, got myself all soapy and clean and felt like a new man. I really was on cloud nine. Guys were walking by, all different types, some showering too and the vibe and aura of the place was just electric. I didn’t know where to begin.

It turned out that I didn’t need to know where to begin. Upon exiting the shower, a few guys came up and started shooting the shit with me. Great guys, their names were Ben and Will. A third guy was with them, but I didn’t catch his name. We stood around the main area, just talking and taking in the sites of all the festive men. They suggested we take a stroll around the room area to see what there was to see.

There was definitely a lot to see. Everybody seemed so hospitable, I never saw so many rooms with open doors. I won’t bore you with detail on what was there, but do know that we got lost in that maze of rooms for quite some time. It was one of those experiences that you just look back on and realize that nothing too crazy happened, but there were just good people and good times.

After our jaunt through the labyrinth I thought a good sauna and shower would really seal the deal. It did. I met back up with Ben and the guy who’s name I never got and we talked a little bit about nothing in particular. I had to admit that I once thought the notion of bathhouse shenanigans and making friends was a little far-fetched, but sitting there in the sauna, chatting with my new friends I realized that I was definitely wrong in my assessment of The Club before delving in.

After Work Relaxing

Over the course of the few weeks after my second, brave experience, I decided that I really enjoyed The Club. True, I was still just a little nervous each time, but it was getting better. The irony of the situation is that once you get into the place it’s very relaxing. The stress and the nerves are on fire thinking about the experience and the unknown of what’s about to happen, but once that towel comes on and you walk around meeting people, it all washes away.

The thing I didn’t expect was the fact that I would meet people I genuinely liked. Don’t get me wrong, there are people there I didn’t care for, but the social, chill atmosphere of just lounging around with guys was a breath of fresh air. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I thoroughly enjoyed the sex, too.

The great thing about a place like The Club is the ways in which you can explore your sexuality. Fetishes you didn’t know you had and people you didn’t know you were attracted to all come together so that you learn so much about yourself.

One Tuesday, after work, I was feeling particularly antsy and decided to swing by The Club to chill and see what happens. I wasn’t overly horny like I had been on previous occasions, but being young and able, it didn’t really matter.

This time I decided to lay out in the sauna. Nothing really sooths you after a day in the office like some dry heat. I walked in and it was empty. I figured the boys were off in their rooms or out at the pool. I positioned myself near the back corner so I could lie down as well as see who came in. The room was the perfect temperature, and as I laid there with my towel draped over me I could feel the beads of sweat starting to materialize all over my body and run down my sides. I felt like I was drifting off to sleep in a completely relaxed state when I half opened my eyes and realized I wasn’t alone.

I looked over and saw two men sitting on the other side of the room, chatting in low whispers – apparently trying not to disturb me. I decided to “play dead” for a little while longer and hear what they were talking about. I couldn’t make it out exactly, but the words rope and sling were used. My pulse started to quicken and I wasn’t sure why. All of a sudden they stopped talking and started chuckling. I opened my eyes this time and looked over. They were staring at me with a look of curiosity and desire. I then realized why they were chuckling as I gazed down at my tented towel.

I chuckled as well and they got up and strolled over to me. They sat a little below me and introduced themselves as Tim and Rich. After some polite conversation, the intent gaze Rich was giving me got a little closer and I found myself with a couple of really fun new friends. New friends that I would learn a lot from.
