Is going to a bath house with another guy weird?

A friend (a bit more on the acquaintance side) just asked me to go to a Bath House with him. He has a girlfriend (but apparently has hit on other girls in the same scene...so not sure how commited that whole situation but knowing his gf I don't think she's the swinging type) so I don't think he's hitting on me. He's also completely ripped - while me...well check out the Clydes section

Besides the obvious discomfort with the two different body shapes juxtaposed do straight guys do this sort of thing? Man this sounds like such a stupid question! I need to train this week but next Monday after a 145 mile ride I'm trying to do....bet a sauna would feel pretty damned good. The place is here by the way.

Thoughts?

Hi, Siu! <wavin'> You were right, I'm still up, but only 'cause I just finished eatin' a dinner for three people. Boy, did that hit the spot after my long ride today! But I'm still short a couple of hundred replacement calories.

<rootin' around in freezer> AHA! <grinnin' triumphantly, holdin' up HD Cherry Vanilla>

Hey, sistuh, did I tell you I finally saw Brokeback Mountain? Great film!

stop being such a guy, nothing wrong with a full day of pampering.

just make sure to be straight up as not to send any message that could get you into a weird situation.

It's a bit odd, I'd say. It would raise some eyebrows around here, that's for sure.

Oh I haven't seen that, but I did see "Fatal Attraction"a long time ago.

Like going to a bath house with a totally ripped guy?

Not that there is anything wrong with a spa, personally I would prefer a steak house, some beer, maybe a movie....

Not that there's anything wrong with that!

It looks like from the pictures people have bathing suits on which makes me feel a bit better. Also looks like mixed crowd which is even better. They even have that Russian style I think where you beat yourself with pine branches.

Air.....it sounds to me like YOU are the one with the problem. You sound a tad "phobic". I wouldn't think anything of it. Go and have fun.

No, not phobic - have a few gay friends and have bar hopped with them. My only 'phobic' moment came when one guy at a party put a leather mask on me and wrapped me in plastic wrap, found out afterwards he was gay and didn't want to give the wrong impression.

There are different 'kinds' of bath houses especially in the city - just seeing if anyone else has gone to one in general.

The website looks like it is essentially an upscale spa near the Financial District. It's in a good section of Manhattan and is marketed to both men and women. Jeez, just go sit in the steamroom and sauna and chat with everyone in the room and maybe even share a few laughs.
