    Been there four times and it was great fun. I was nervous the first time but it didn't take much time to loosen up. In fact after about an hour two well hung guys loosened me up well. I was there four three hours and was with five guys. Every time since has been great. Better than fumbling around in a bar. Everyone is there for the same thing. As a bottom I find it erotic to just lay there and wait for someone to enter and plow my ass. Safe sex is a must and they provide rubbers and lube. The steam room is a good place to get head but if you want to fuck, get a room.

    Unlike the other more "active" (public sex) baths, most of the activity at Roman Holiday takes place in the steam room, sauna or private rooms. I was a bath virgin the first time I visited, and found the low pressure attitude of the place made me feel comfortable. Managed a nice round of 69 with a gent in his room, but my time was limited so after I came - I left. We'd left the door open in case anyone wanted to watch, didn't notice a real crowd, but I was somewhat distracted. I like to watch and show. I went again a few days later when I had a few hours to spend. This time I sprung for the room (seem to recall it was around $20 or, maybe $25.) Room was small, but the linens on the single narrow bed were clean, there were hooks to hang my clothes on, and the room was clean. Good enough for the purpose. First off to the steam room where I met an older Asian gentleman - still in good shape with a lovely bubble butt who needed it plowed. The club provides both rubbers AND lube in the pack they give you with the towel, but it's a real PITA to open the lube package in the steam room. Finally managed and we had a nice time, putting on a short show for the other occupants. After that I went up to the roof deck to build up stamina again (I'm not 20, and not ready to go immediately) where I sat opposite an early 30's slim, hot Hispanic. We made eye contact, and some mutual rubbing revealed he was a bottom and liked his nipples played with. Shortly after went downstairs to my room and he followed. He gave me the blowjob of my life. Unfortunately he must be a bit shy since he wanted the room door closed and the window in the door covered over. That was OK for me - having someone this hot blow me made almost anything OK. After a very good time we thanked each other (he'd managed two loads from me in one session) and he split. Shortly after I had to split. If I lived in the area I'd be pretty much a regular there. Clean, low pressure, not too expensive and quite discrete. Recommended.
