PARIS Gay Cruising 2020
Paris “Sex on premises” bars and clubs have become increasingly popular over the past 10 years with the result that Paris now rivals Berlin for one of the hottest cruising scenes in Europe.
The French enjoy sex as much as they do discussions of politics or religion over good food and wine. Sex in public, or in private clubs, has a long Parisian history. The many dark nooks and subterranean crannies have provided discreet areas for sex play far into the past.
Outdoor cruising, in places like Bois de Boulogne, are a long-standing tradition, but can be risky. Guys cruise the north end of park during the day, often taking action into the secluded groves of trees. At night the cruising moves to the south end of the park along the Avenue Mathias Delobel.
Besides the many saunas, a variety of bars porn stores and sex clubs provide sexual opportunities not only at the center, but in outlying neighborhoods too. It’s worth the trip to Metro Anvers to visit MecZone, a club proud to stand a little apart from the throng. Others like MicMan are right at the center.
Shops, including Boxx Man in Les Halles, are alternative places for sexual encounters. Many bars around the Marais feature ancient stone arched-ceiling cellars, with low lighting and flickering videos — and men in heavy sex play. Slings, glory holes, cabins and piss benches may also be provided.
Each place has its own ambiance. Some are always naked, or have fisting events or nights for piss aficionados or sneaker sniffers, and some have showers, (but most don’t). Weekend afternoon parties can be as popular as the late night events.
Bunker, is perhaps one of the most popular Sex clubs in the city especially with Fetish and SM guys. They have regular parties with dress codes. Admission is EUR 8 approximately.
Impact is a strictly naked cruise bar, full of horny guys on two levels. Always busy. Admission: 15 €, incl. 1 drink (10 € under 30 years)
Paris saunas with competition from the many backrooms, must offer something more. Many have hammams, the Turkish ritual baths mixing dry sauna, steam, massage, and time-out relaxation. Sexual adventures are provided for with dark rooms, mazes, and cabins. Bars, cafes, internet lounges, and work-out areas are also common. Most here are day saunas, busiest in the late afternoon to early evenings. See our sauna section for listings.
