First Timers

Welcome to SteamWorks Edmonton!

Our friendly staff are always willing to help out new guests! Let us know it’s your first time, so we can let you know how things work and give you a tour of our bi-level space!

Next, decide what kind of room you want: Single Rooms, our most affordable private option, have just a bed. Single TV and all Double Rooms have TVs. Some Single and Double Rooms have slings. The Captain’s Room has it all! All rooms have a locker inside. Public lockers are an affordable option, but we recommend Private Rooms to first timers so you can control your privacy. A private room allows you to have your own play-space, and allows you to relax without being bothered while you get ready for round two, or three, or…

Your host will hand you keys and a towel (L & XL available). Towel exchange is complimentary, just bring us your original and we’ll exchange it for a fresh one! If you need free condoms, please ask! You’re all set, time to explore!

Hit the Showers downstairs to clean up, chill out in the Wet Steam & Dry Sauna areas, relax those muscles in our Hot Tub (no sexual activity here please, for obvious Health & Safety reasons) or just walk around and get a feel for the place. Worried about dress code? It’s common to just walk around in a towel, however many of our customers enjoy strutting their stuff either naked, or in their favourite undies, socks, leather gear, shorts, other fetish wear, etc! Whatever you’re comfy with works, however we ask that you DO NOT remain fully clothed while cruising. This can confuse you to guests as staff.

You’ll find the common bathrooms upstairs & downstairs clean and well maintained. However, if you notice anything out of place, see supplies like soap or toilet paper run out, have any questions, or wonder what to do, please visit your Attendant and have a friendly chat.

Anything goes, but most of the talking is done in Private Rooms or The Lounge. (Out of respect for staff, weekly performers, and other customers enjoying our Lounge as a chill-out zone, please refrain from sexual activity in this area.)

In the cruising areas, guys mostly communicate non-verbally (i.e. body language and eye contact). Use your best judgment; the process is a lot like trying to pick up at a bar.

Courtesy and respect go a long way at SteamWorks, and the direct approach is usually best. So if you see something you like, just smile!

If someone shows interest in you but you are NOT interested, it’s legit to say you’re “Just Resting” (those are the magic words). It’s ok to be a little choosy and patient. But remember…saying no to everyone sort of defeats the purpose of your visit, so let your hair down and have some fun. We’re all here for the same thing!

Obviously the majority of our clientele on men-only nights are gay. But a good percentage are married, bisexual or questioning. On other nights, many customers are straight, women, or trans. No label? No problem! #INCLUSION

Your security and privacy are important to us, which is why the main entrance is locked and monitored at all times.
