I've been a bit reluctant to go to the Steamworks, since I'm pushing 50. But I finally made a trip and it was great. A Thursday night, not too busy, but enough to make it fun.

A young stud in the showers complimented me, saying it takes dedication to stay fit when your into your 40's. He took a nice feel of my ass, and then suggested a more private spot. We found a private area and made out before he gave me an incredible missionary topping.

After we finished he introduced me to a friend and we had a nice three-way. By the time the night was through I was topped four times, gave head to completion six times, and had two releases of my own.

Steamworks in Chicago is unbelievable! Only been there once, but very classy. Not many old guys like other places (Body Zone, Detroit). Very clean and affordable. I just got a day membership and a decent sized room. Can't remember the cost, but very affordable. Clean room, awesome vibe, great bodies walking around. Lots of action. There is a place in Grand Rapids, Mi, too. Can't remember the name, but not bad. Not as classy as Steamworks, but worth it. Some older guys, but always depends on the day/time. I have been there several times and always have a good time. Had my first multiple guy action there a few years ago.

This is the most impressive Steamworks location I've been to. I visited during IML weekend when each floor was packed. A gym facility is on an upper floor, although men of all shapes are here. The only thing I disliked was how narrow the maze walkways were.

I absolutely love this place. I love to take lots of loads through the gloryholes, when I don't even know who is fucking me, but for sure 99% of the guys here fuck bareback.

The best! Always a good crowd of fit guys. Went once on the last Saturday afternoon of the month and saw they were having a "Bear Party" which I though was a televised Chicago Bears game. Boy was I wrong! Even though I'm HWP and mainly attracted to same, it was an amazing array of men. Also notable is "lights out" on Thursdays during rush hour.

Often mentioned as one of the best bathhouses in the world, it lives up to its reputation. You got to be a 10 in order to hook up with another 10. People are rather choosy since there are so many fishes swimming around. Still, I find a great mixture of races and sizes but generally it is a young crowd with fit bodies. Having a good BWI is a good indicator what will happen to you here as well.

Many of my fantasies were fullfilled at this place! I see a mixed crowd, from Asians to black, and most of them are willing to hook up. Just go with an open - gotta-have-a-good time - frame of mind.

I visited Chicago for the first time in late August and had the most amazing time at Steamworks. I got there on a Thursday afternoon for their "Blackout Party". Before I even got to my room a guy started cruising me. I got undressed in my room and he watched me take a shower. After I dried off, he grabbed my ass. I thought, "What the fuck?" I went to his room and he fucked me like a wild man. So began my long weekend at Steamworks. It got better after that.

On Saturday Steamworks had their "Bears in Heat Party." I had so much sex that day, like maybe sex with 15 or 20 guys. I sucked cock through gloryholes and in my room and other guy's rooms. I got fucked maybe a dozen times in my room, in an orgy room, in a sling, well you get the picture. I lost count of how many guys fucked me. I went back a third time on Sunday and had sex with at least a half dozen men. In short, I can't wait to go back to Chicago and Steamworks. It is a great place for all types of men, all ages, all races, body types, etc. What a great place!

Was there Sunday night of the Labor Day weekend. I arrived at 6:30 and it was already very busy. No problem finding someone to suck me in the many booths with gloryholes. I got an extreme room with sling (bondage room) and had a young black guy fuck me while I was suspended in the sling. His cock was huge, both around and by length, and he totally destroyed my ass. A real fantasy come true.

There seem to be two distinct groups that frequent Steamworks. There is the “right after work” group (4:30 to 6 pm) who don’t waste time looking for the perfect hookup. I’m not saying they don’t have standards, but they don’t spend hours and hours aimlessly wandering around looking for the hot, 20 something, gym rat. These guys just got off work and stopped in for a fast blo-n-go on the way home.

Then about 8 pm the second group starts arriving. These guys think they are too hot for the average guy and wander the halls and mazes looking for the perfect guy. The problem is, they spend all their time searching and no time playing. So my recommendation is get there early, have your fun, and head home by 8 because unless you are Zack Effron, you are going to have a very frustrating night.

Got there around 7:30 and left around 10 on a Sunday night. Had a workout in the great gym and expected even more fun later, but I was not as happy with the cruising as the gym. Plenty of guys, yes, but lots of posing. I was here on a Sunday two years ago and the place was raging. This time even the gallery which seems to be the heart of the action was dead. I think in three hours I saw two incidents of people getting it on -- that was it. The rest seemed to just we shuffling through the place, waiting for Prince Charming I guess. The whole neighborhood is full of bars, so if you want a date, go there. This is a bathhouse after all! That being said, the place is beautiful, really clean and the staff could not be nicer. Oh well -- it is a new generation moving in, and they are not like the old guard. Places like this will probably be a memory soon.

Nice, clean! Hung out there for a few hours last night (a Tuesday) and I managed to get my dick sucked by at least a dozen decent looking guys. I blew my load twice but could have gone for more if I had the time. Lots of action, good clientele and staff, no attitude and some fucking great bodies in this place.

I was there last December. Pumped up my huge cock, which gets to be about ten inches long and seven and a half thick. Four guys sucked me off through the gloryholes then I turned around and about six guys started going crazy for it. One tight assed Asian guy dragged me away and took me to his private room and moaned whiled I fucked his ass. Later I met a really small (five foot tall Asian dude) with the tightest, smallest ass and even smaller dick. He grabbed my fat cock, began sucking it and had me try to fuck his super tight ass at least ten times, alternating sucking it. Finally I got it in about four inches and he directed me to go to town. It was incredible as I ripped his tight little virgin ass apart and he moaned and loved it.

I went last week and had a great time; started by watching a gorgeous muscle guy with a huge cock bareback this Asian muscle bottom, then he fist-fucked him -- very hot. After he was done with him I barebacked the Asian guy. Later on I fisted the Asian guy like there was no tomorrow and he loved every minute of it, and I loved the fact that other guys were watching and getting off. Finally, I was blown by a guy who knew how to suck. It was one of the best blowjobs I've ever received.

I was there yesterday and had a great time. Got blown by three guys, and blew my load with the last guy. He was a great sucker and poppers addict, which made him suck even better. I loved it! Saw a guy getting fucked in the steamroom, and a lot of touching was going on. Never fails to get me worked up and off.

This is the cleanest bathhouse in Chicago in a safe location in the middle of the Boystown neighborhood. It's an eighteen-plus year old venue in the middle of twenty-one-plus venues yet it no longer draws as many younger guys as it did a year or two ago. I visit the club four to six times a year and they are always making changes attempting to make the three floors of space more interesting. They increased membership fees, entry fees, and even the vending machine prices dramatically over the last year or two. The six month membership was $6 but now it is $20. A can of pop was $1 but now it is $1.50. Room and locker prices are different by the day and time but they are all higher now during peak times. The place is much less crowded than before but you will still find an estimated fifty or more guys there between 9 pm and 6 am on Friday and Saturday nights. I think that more guys would come if they reverted their prices to those of the past and were able to encourage more of the younger crowd to come in. You will still have fun here but probably not as quickly and as many in a night as in the past. Clean, safe (use the lockboxes), and usually a friendly staff.

Never a dull moment. I spent an entire eight hours sucking men off, getting fucked, and fucking men. Tasted lots of cum and had lots of cum dripping down my ass.

I went on a Wednesday lunch hour not expecting a lot of action. I was beyond surprised! Got sucked by multiple guys, barebacked a guy getting sucked, and participated in sling action while someone was getting fucked. There were lots of attractive, nice guys, which was another surprise. I finally seeded someone's mouth while he played with my prostate, and after thirty minutes the same guy sucked me again. I came in his mouth the second time while I was playing with the hole of the guy I barebacked earlier on. Very hot. As always, Steamworks delivers.

I was there July 4th weekend (Friday and Saturday) from out of town and lost count of how many juicy cocks I sucked and fucked my tight ass, mostly hot, young dudes. I rented a room, left the door open, and before I knew it my hole was filled with hot cum from hung top men willing to seed my hole. I will definitely go back.

Steamworks fucking rocks! I rented a room on Saturday over Pride Weekend. Three guys came in to fuck my ass at different times. They were all great, but the third top was the best. I had turned off the lights in my room to rest, but left the door open. It wasn't long before this hot top came in. I was sucking his magnificent cock and was soon begging him to work that dick into my willing ass. It was great, hot, raw, passionate sex.

This place could be great if people could just be friendly. The last three times I have gone there I've experienced some very strange and unfriendly guys. I am a good-looking guy, but if I tried to just say hi to someone they looked at me like I were some kind of hideous monster and not say a word. Why can't people just say hi back? If they are not interested sexually that's fine. They can kindly say so and move on. I wonder why they don't just stay home and interact with a mirror because they sure don't seem to want to socialize with others.

Fun times in all areas whether it be in the sauna, hot tub or in your own room. They have rooms and lockers. There are three floors to play on. There are gloryholes, a public swing, over thirty channels of porn playing all over the building. Whenever I go there I cum six or seven times. Play hard, play safe.

I recently traveled to Chicago and before going I came to cruisingforsex.com as I was looking for some hot experiences. Man! Steamworks is like the Disneyland for gay sex. I had so much fun. After a couple of hours I lost track of how many well hung guys I sucked and they were all types from the butch top, Latinos, African-American, frat college...you name it!

Hot and a nice place to say the least. One note to the young boys (especially the Asians and Latinos): this a bathhouse, a place to fuck and have fun and not to fuck with older people's minds. You know who you are. Other than that, hot crowd and nice facility!

I was here a few weeks ago on a Saturday afternoon. Within minutes, a hot guy in his early twenties was in my room ready to slide his big cock in my ass. I sucked him off till he came all over. Then went upstairs and laid down on a bed in the open area. In a few minutes a very good-looking older guy climbed up and fucked me while three other guys watched. This place is fantastic.

If you ever visit Chicago, make sure you put this place on your list! It is the Rolls Royce of all bathhouses: sparkling clean, huge wet area, multiple levels (four to be exact, yes, four). All kinds of clientele there, so take your pick. Not much attitude. I love Asian twinks and had a dozen of them there myself in one night. Whatever your type, this place will hand it out to you! A bit expensive but worth it!

I think this place is the hottest bathhouse in the central US! First I will say that it may be pricey and parking is limited, but that is in any big city such as New York or Chicago. Once inside, especially on the weekends (I visited Friday when on business), you will have a buffet of young men ranging from Asians to Latinos to whites. I do not think the attitude, if any, was any different than any other bathhouse I've been too, and I am middle-aged. I tried to come on to ten people, all young, and nine of them I either fucked, sucked, etc! Not bad. Also, the place is three stories and the steamroom is huge, great gym, there are many gloryhole mazes, two saunas, and a five thousand gallon whirlpool. I was impressed. I will go back anytime I am in town again! Go and have fun!

If you are a chickenhawk then this is the place for you. I saw plenty of older guys sucking off younger guys. There is a lot of action if you are young. My husband and I were sucking each other off and people just ignored us and walked away from us probably because we are not young and thin. Personally, I do not see us returning here again.

Great place! I was there last weekend, both Saturday and Sunday. Lots of hot, young, hung guys. I walked around a little to get the lay of the land and had about ten guys starting to reach and grab. Hung out in both the steamroom and whirlpool. Both places had lots of action. Each night I ended up getting sucked off a couple times and saw a lot of other hot action in the many areas. I will definitely come back…again and again and again!

Hot, hot, hot! I went on a Friday night and due to all the mediocre comments here, my expectations were low. But the outcome was anything but mediocre. I have only been to one other bathhouse so my experience is limited but this place was clean, the cleaning crew was visible and the staff was friendly. The only sour note is that the steamroom was under repair. This place is huge. If you can't find what you’re looking for then something is wrong. It has a pleasant surprise on the second floor that I will leave to those that visit. There were many hot, hot, hot guys such as myself there. There were young guys and a good mix of white, black, Latino, etc. A word of caution, some guys will try and take liberty with you so be sure to wrap it up and be safe. If you’re in the Chicago area, it’s worth visiting.

This place is hit-or-miss. During the weekdays from noon until 6 pm there's a small crowd of decent guys. Friday and Saturday nights are much more crowded, but a lot of overt drug use and what appears to be dealing. This means there are lots of limp dick twinks walking around in a stupor. Not sure if the management is too dumb to know that people are using drugs outright or if they simply don't care.

I went on a Sunday night; the peak time is between 8 pm and 10pm. The trick to hooking up with a younger, smooth, friendly, good-looking guy who happens to be an out-of-towner. They want to be friendly and do not have an attitude. As for the good-looking locals, you can't catch their eye and they won't give you the time of day. And if they smiled, their face would probably crack.
