Dedicated to helping men around the world connect for sexual pleasure. Most of my site visitors are gay or bisexual men, but a large number are straight (not bi) guys who recognize the satisfaction that can be had from sexual release with a guy from time to time.

Having sex at any of the places listed in this category is illegal. Proceed at your own risk:

Chicago Hilton and Towers, 720 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago. Cruisy toilets. Toilet on lobby level, near Kitty O'Shea's. Also, toilet in basement near exhibit hall.

Chicago Place, 700 North Michigan Avenue, Chicago. Cruisy toilets. "The second, fourth, and sixth floors men's rooms can be hopping especially on weekends." Also, in the adjoining Saks Fifth Avenue, several cruisy toilets.

Marshall Field's, 111 North State Street, Chicago. Cruisy toilets on all floors, starting in the basement.

"There IS a security presence from time to time--especially during the lunch hour and between 5 pm and 6 pm. They are often in plain clothes, but always carry radios. There is always action in the third floor john, which is the best because the stalls are around the corner from and out of sight of the entrance. The crowd is diverse and a good place to find young black studs."

The Merchandise Mart, 300 North Wells, Chicago. Cruisy toilets, upper floors.

O'Hare Airport. Cruisy toilets: in Concourse 'K'; in the United terminal, across from Gate B10 and across from the Atomica Snack Bar; Concourse 'L', last toilet before coming to the end of the concourse.

Palmer House Hotel, 17 East Monroe, Chicago. Cruisy toilets. "Cruisy tearooms are located on the lobby level just northeast of the registration desk, but be cautious due to Chicago cops using the facility. Also, tearooms on third floor; fourth floor (by grand ballroom--State Street side); sixth floor (State Street side); and seventh floor (both State Street side and Wabash)."

Sears Tower, 233 South Wacker Drive, Chicago. Toilet on the lower level 2, across from gift shop.

Sheraton North Shore Hotel, 933 Skokie Blvd., Northbrook. Cruisy healthclub. "I visited this past Monday just to check it out and enjoyed a full massage from two different out-of-town businessmen. The first guy was from LA and the other from Paris (with whom the massage led to much more!). The place was totally dead except for those coming down from their rooms for action, so there seems to be no worry about getting caught. The sauna is small and isolated in a corner of the men's locker area. All doors into the area bang very loudly, so there is plenty of warning. Additionally, the staff was very friendly (security included). Open until 11 pm every night."
