This is the nicest bathhouse I've ever been to. Very clean and well constructed. It's a masculine/industrial look. They have a spa, steamroom, video room setup for light action, and a shower area in view of a seating area. There is a tiny dark maze with just a couple gloryholes and a couple slings, one in the maze, the other in a room. There's a private (i.e., you can't see it from Interstate 84) rooftop sundeck to enjoy when the weather is good.

It is a bathhouse for sure, and not an arcade like most places listed on this site, but if that's what you're looking for, you'll love it! Also, check out the blackout parties: You get a glowstick-type wristband to indicate your position preference and attendance is usually high.

The best place to get naked in town. Even on a weekend afternoon, the place can have a good variety of men looking for sex. Very nice facility, very clean. I've almost always left satisfied, with a load in my mouth or up my ass.

They have modified the layout a little bit, probably in response to the arrival of the other bathhouse. The hot tub is now screened from the entry walkway, and the video is being shown on the opposite wall from before. There is a new, short corridor with a bed, a St. Andrew's Cross, and a stall with a gloryhole. The former maze now has a video screen and a sling out in the open.

I think what is still needed is a semi-private area to fuck. I'll fuck anywhere, but some people are reluctant to do it out in the open. I miss the old bunk-bed arrangement that used to be in some of the bathhouses, where people could be seen but weren't as exposed.

Why not have lube dispensers as well as condoms in the common areas? It would be worth adding another dollar to the entry fee, if that's what it takes to pay for them. More people would fuck that way, people come to have and see sex, and visible fucking heats up the sexual atmosphere a lot more than videos.

Hats off to the excellent, friendly, hard-working staff! I salute their efforts to persuade people to use condoms. The alternative is a lot worse.

Subject: Action
I was there on Thursday afternoon, and it was pretty quiet until a hot older guy came in and we shared each other's ass for our mutual pleasure. I have always made out here in one way or another. I always make plans to spend time here when in Portland

Two vastly different experiences a week apart last month.

On a Friday I fucked 5 guys, topped 3 and bottomed for 2. For all the talk of safe sex, my experience was 50/50 bare/condom. One guy kept trying to top me bare in the public area, and when I refused we flipped and I topped him (bare) while others watched.

On a Tuesday it was very slow. I sucked one guy, got fucked (w/ condom) in maze area by another. Not nearly enough action for this visit.

They have kicked out several guys for fucking raw. I only practice safer sex, but I think adults should decide that for themselves. Stop policing condom usage, Steam. You're acting like a bunch of silly girls.

A very nice club, this is my first stop when I travel to Oregon. Usually I go there first after getting off the plane. It is very clean and friendly. They have a variety of rooms, but only a limited dark room. You'll usually find action in the nice steamroom.

Last week I was there at 3 pm, hooked up with an older guy (my age) who had a very thick cock. We played for hours. I took two loads from him and my ass still wanted more. I then hooked up with a young Chinese guy in the steamroom and we went to the sling room where he fucked me, with several other guys joining in. I took another in my ass and one sucking. When the Chinese guy finished, a guy with a small but talented cock took his place. What a day! I showered and went to my meeting.

I tend to go a few times a month and usually get lucky. I'm not chiseled by any means, but usually have plenty of fun. I tend to go on Wednesdays after work as it's discount locker day. Yes, there is a spa feel to the place, but I don't mind that. Very clean, which I appreciate. All in all, a great place.

I am a Steam regular and was there this past Friday when I started fucking some hot little guy in the dark room. I shared him with a few guys and then took him back to my room and fucked him so hard he could barely move afterwards. I also got fucked by three guys myself.

The guys working at Steam this last time were nothing like the nice, sweet, flirtatious guys I usually see there, but overall Steam has improved. Still guys are concerned about condom usage; it is a Steam thing. Some guy actually checked while I had my cock stuffed up the little guy's butt! LOL!

An absolute waste of time and money! As previous posters have stated, the place is dull, boring and the few people there are just posing. Staff are rude and unfriendly, too.

I go to this place on Wednesdays and always get lucky. Last week I took 5 different cocks up my ass, and fucked 6 different guys. Never had a boring time, not once. True enough this place has a very "spa" like feel to it, but is that bad? It is very clean and the staff are always nice.

Not even a bathhouse, just a spa for fags into being pretty and trannies looking pathetic and old. Imagine old men in pink bras and panties. Plus the staff are rude and snooty. Never going there again.

I must agree with previous posters. This has to be the most boring bathhouse in America. Lots of guys walking around looking pretty, but zero action. Save your time and money and go elsewhere!

I do not understand why people are so heavily complaining. I have always found at least some cock there on weekend nights, and last time I was there was on a Thursday night in August and I got 3 loads in my ass and other fucking besides. It is not as good as the old now-gone sleazy Club Portland was, but there is fun here.

I am local and I have to agree; this place makes me sad. I am older and I have watched as Portland queers have become more standoffish and less friendly. Apparently everyone is standing around waiting for Adonis to walk in. Why not enjoy one another? You may say this is sour grapes but if you are a regular, ask yourself when was the last time you had a good time at Steam? I bet you can't remember when.

This has to be the most boring bathhouse I have ever been to. Most guys just walk around looking pretty but nothing ever happens. I am in my early 40's and in pretty decent shape and still had a hard time getting some action.

Been here twice in the past month. Most of the guys just walk around looking for the perfect guy to hook up with. Seems more like bar action than a bathhouse. Even though I purchased a 6 month membership, I am not likely to return. I absolutely agree that it needs much more sexual energy. Too sterile and, well, just no fun.

I was amazed to see all the negative comments about Steam and frankly I totally agree! The other reviews talk about "posers" but I don't think it is the guys that frequent this place. I fault the management for paying no attention to the atmosphere. The truth is that they seem to go out of their way to diminish the sexual energy. The showers are brightly lit, the music is often some kind of new age crap, the great monitor in the locker room is tuned to CNN! How sexy is that, gay men getting undressed together as Larry King interviews Marie Osmond! I've asked these guys many times and they always say that thier customers need a place to rest. What in the hell are they talking about!

My take: they have great facilities, but they go out of their way to diminish the sexual energy. I travel a lot and most of these places have pulsing music, hot guys, porn everywhere.

One last comment: Steam used to have a young guy that worked the front desk that was friendly, smiled and actually flirted with customers. I used to go just hoping he was working. He is long gone now and the current crew is respectful, but not friendly and no smiles and can't even seem to look you in the eye. One night I actually heard them tell a cute young guy, "You don't want to come in tonight. Its Tuesday and most of the guys are older." What are thery thinking? They should have let him in for free.

Visiting from out of town, I stopped in on a Friday mid-afternoon and stayed most of the night. Smaller venue, it's very clean and staff was friendly. The day crowd was nicer and more fun than the night crowd which had some stand and models doing no one. I fucked 2 guys, got sucked off at the jacuzzi and in the dark room and finally gave it up to a big-dicked stud. Would love to see the site expand, perhaps to the space next door.

This place is fucking boring, absolutely full of posers. Every once in awhile a couple hot guys will come and they will have sex while others watch. That's about as exciting as it gets. Otherwise, it is very nice and very expensive and not very worth it!

If you're looking to spend a lot of time around a bunch of posers, this is the place for you! Yes, this place is nice and very clean. But it's supposed to be a bathhouse not a restaurant. You Portland boys need to travel a little to find out what a bathhouse is. If you did, you'd let your Steam Portland membership lapse. Like I did.

Lame would be an apt description of this bathhouse. They out to invest some of their profits into making it more interesting and alluring. Visit Oakland or Seattle for some ideas.

I've been coming to Steam since they opened, and I have to say the comments about bitchy staff are just way off the mark. The only time I've seen the staff be anything but kind is if someone comes in higher than a kite or starts acting stupid or bitchy, in which case the staff lets them know that that behavior stops before they even come in. If people act rude to staff, they will probably be bitchy queens to customers as well, so the staff is just trying to establish that there are some rules here so people don't do stupid shit, spoiling it all for everyone else. The place is clean and there's a mix of everything from super hot twinks to old nasty men and everything in between, and I've seen just about everyone get laid at one point or another.

Yeah, I go to Steam because it's the only game in town, but I can certainly understand some of the other comments. It's true that you might enjoy the amenities more than the sex in the place -- it's not a place to go fuck. Good luck!

I went to Steam today (Sunday afternoon) and had a great time. The staff and clientele were friendly, no attitude, not inhibited. Lots of group sucking in the dark room and steamroom. Nice mix of hotties and average joes. I fucked a hunky, beefy married guy. I go to Steamworks in Berkeley, California, a lot and Steam is at least as hot. I totally don't get the other comments, at least based on today's visit.

I have been here three different times and each was different. I got fucked by two big-cocked dudes once and had a great night. The other nights were not as ball-busting but still hot and it was better than staying at home beatin' it alone.

Context: Saturday night, 10 pm to 1 am, cold drizzle outside. This place is immaculate. It's really nicely done from a design and layout point of view. Better than most I've been to around the world. Friendly and helpful staff. There were about seventy guys there during that time. I took a locker instead of one of the many room options, though they also looked clean. I do have one personal observation. The crowd was mostly bears and twinks. The twinks were after the bears and each other. Lots to watch and not a lot of attitude. I am, however, about as average as average gets and was basically ignored this time. Not an issue with a club, just an observation.

I live in Portland but travel often to other cities and most comments about this place are correct. This is one of the worst bathhouses in the entire country. Although its modern and clean, the stuck up posers make this place a waste of time. It can be hit or miss, but most times miss. You'll enjoy the amenities more than the crowd, trust me!

My biggest complaint about this place is that they seem to care less about trying to make the place sexy and hot. Out of five TV monitors, two of them are tuned to CNN. I keep asking the guy to switch the big beautiful flat screen monitor in the locker room to porn and he tells me that he wants to keep it tuned to the evening news so people have a place to go to 'rest'. Is he fucking kidding me? This is a bathhouse! Besides, the monitor in the vending room is tuned to CNN so let people rest in there! Steam could be a great place. I just can't understand why they never seem to want to make it hotter and sexier, as if gay guys getting undressed together in a locker room really want to catch up on the evening news!

The big problem with Steam is all the whiny trolls. If you like your bathhouse with week-old puddles of cum everywhere then Steam is not the place for you. It's a nice place with a staff that is always on the move to keep the place a good safe environment. They don't just sit at the front desk and take money. Steam is probably the best place to find some seriously sexy guys.

A bathhouse is a place where I go to fuck as many guys as I can. Steam is not that kind of place. It is full of prima donnas, poseurs and bitches with sticks up their butts. Since the scuzzy bathhouse closed the staff has really taken on attitude, too.

This was a fantastic find. It's a very clean, modern place with nice steamroom, a six or so man hot tub, a video room that can hold a dozen or more, an outdoor sundeck for nude tanning, very nice showers, all working facilities in a newer building. Range of men is nice, both ages and ethnicities. The employees are extremely friendly. If I ever get back to Portland, I will definitely plan on spending every extra hour at Steam Portland.

Steam is bitchy and boring. From the front desk guy who said: 'You came in the exit. That's bad. That's why it says exit on it. I knew we should have put it in spanish." (It was kind of hard to read in the dark, dude). To the stylish ultra-squeaky clean interior that made me feel like I should have my nails done. If you want a very clean stylish place where there's not much action and not many places to have sex, this is it. Gloryhole room? More like gloryhole closet. Oh, and it's the same as the dark room closet. But interiors are really....really....nice. I miss Club Portland.

Probably the best place I've ever been to get some lovin' safely. I'm not sure what some of these other guys problems were but the staff is always nice and polite, it's just that they actually have rules they follow to keep the environment a good one and try to keep it a little safer than your usual place. I've found lots of guys to hookup with but when I don't it's not because the people are stuck up. It's because nobody caught my eye or vice-a-versa. It is the cleanest, sexiest place in the state to get some cock.
