What kind of activities go on there?
Our business does offer an environment for “hooking up”. So sexual activity does take place and you must be aware that you may see this happening in rooms or in some of the public areas. The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled this legal as long as all persons entering the premise are aware of it. This is similar to a “Sex Club”. Remember, per Alberta Health regulations, there is NO sexual activity permitted in the Hot Tub, and the area is monitored for your safety & security.
Are prostitutes allowed?
Communication for the purpose of prostitution is a Federal Offense under the Criminal Code of Canada. Therefore we do NOT tolerate Prostitution in an form or manner anywhere on our premises. If you are approached by someone requesting money for any sexual act, please report this to the Attendant immediately. Anyone caught engaging in prostitution will be asked to leave and barred from re-entry.
Do you have alcohol available?
Our liquor licensing regulations DO NOT permit alcohol service. Additionally, we do not tolerate open use of any alcoholic beverage, and the use of recreational drugs of any kind is strictly prohibited. Individuals caught using or distributing drugs anywhere on the premises will be ejected immediately and barred from re-entry.
So if I want to hook up with someone, how do I go about doing it?
Generally, men walk around the bathhouse, their towels serving to both conceal and reveal. As they pass each other in the dimly lit hallways, they often times touch each other, intentionally or otherwise. Unwanted touches are gently and politely “brushed off,” while welcomed touches are indulged with a smile, sustained eye contact, or even a response in-kind. A backwards glance to take a second, departing look, may be just that: a departing look. But a backwards glance with a quick, forward-moving head-gesture probably means, “Come hither.” In general, while traversing the passageways and communal rooms of the bathhouse, men will ignore the men who do not interest them and invite, via body language, the men who do.
