As Boston is without any sex clubs or bathhouses, New England's top city for cruising and late-night fun is Providence, Rhode Island - it's home to a pair of gay bathhouses, Mega-Plex (pictured here) and Club Body Center. Providence is just an hour's drive south of Boston, so it tends to lure plenty of guys from there as well as in nearby cities like Hartford, Worcester, and even Cape Cod. Mega-Plex is the largest and most popular of the two, drawing a lively crowd around the clock. Page 12.

From 1958 until 1978, Club 82 was a beloved drag cabaret and glam-rock venue made famous by the likes of David Bowie, Lou Reed, Harvey Fierstein, Blondie, and the New York Dolls. It then became an indie-film theater, and in the early 1990s, the dark, underground (figuratively and literally - it's in a basement) space became a quite popular gay adult theater and sex club. More recently, it's been closed at different times, but it was spruced up at one point and now continues to be a gay sex club. Page 6.

The popular Steamworks Berkeley is one of two gay bathhouses in the San Francisco Bay Area, the other being the Watergarden in the South Bay city of San Jose. Set in a semi-industrial but very safe and convenient neighborhood just off I-80, this clean and well-kept facility occupies a huge former warehouse and is outfitted with all the usual features you'd expect: gym, large hot tub, gay porn lounges, a maze of hallways, private rooms of different sizes, and lockers.

A reader asks where to find the gay scene in Costa Rica, and for other advice on planning a gay adventure in this beautiful Central American country. Here are some tips on gay-friendly places to stay and gay bars and saunas in Arenal, San Jose, Quepos, and Limon.
Las Vegas has both a gay gym-sex club, Hawks Gym, and - in the same rather bizarre and shopping center - a slightly more lavish bathhouse called Entourage. Hawks, pictured here, is beside the Vegas LGBT Center along the same strip of buildings that includes the Badlands Saloon gay bar. It's all part of the Commercial Center, a seedy and rather downcast shopping center a couple of miles east of where the Strip bumps into downtown. Page 9.
The most popular gay bathhouse in Belgium's capital city of Brussels, the Macho Sauna appeals to a mix of locals, tourists, and visiting business executives - it's just a 10-minute walk from the central Grand Place, right in the heart of the cozy but bustling gay nightlife district centered around Rue du Marche au Charbon. One difference between Macho and many other European gay saunas is that it closes at midnight, making it more of a day-time and early evening venue.

If you're looking for a sure-fire gay hookup in Honolulu, your best bet is Max's, a private club set on the upper level (4th floor) of an innocuous plaza of shops and offices in western Waikiki, near Ala Wai Canal and Ala Moana shopping mall. Max's has two distinct parts, a well-equipped gym that caters pretty much exclusively to gay men, and a separate bathhouse/sex club that has the usual array of video channels airing gay porn, private cabins, and steam room and sauna.

Austin's gay bathhouse, the Midtowne Spa, is located a 15-minute drive north of downtown, near Highland shopping mall and just north of the Hyde Park neighborhood. The sizable facility that's part of one of the nation's largest gay-bathhouse chains (with branches in Dallas, Denver, Hollywood, Houston, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, and Wilmington, CT) is pretty popular and draws a pretty good mix of ages and types, including some students from nearby University of Texas. Page 32.

Panama City Beach may be best known as one of the world's top hetero spring break destinations, but it's also home to one of the more popular gay beach bars (it's actually across the street from the sea), Splash. This festive spot isn't big, but there's a good size dance floor inside and an expansive covered, tropical-themed patio that extends out back. Splash has male dancers on weekends, drag shows, and rocking spring break parties during the student season (late February through early April). Page 37.
A preview of the Miami Beach Gay Pride Festival, held in mid-April 2014
Miami Beach has a pair of gay beaches, one of them a good-ways up north at 108th Street and Collins Avenue, called Haulover Beach, which is a haul from South Beach but popular because you're allowed to tan in the buff here. The other, with a much more central location for South Beach visitors, is the 12th Street Beach, which is just off Ocean Drive, across the street from the Palace Bar and beyond the grassy landscaped area. Nudity is not permitted here, but that doesn't stop the cruising. Page 2.
Set inside a beautifully restored art deco building from the late '30s that used to be a Greyhound bus office building and garage, Flex Cleveland is a virtual monument to gay bathhouse culture. The owners claim it's the world's largest such facility, and at more than 50,000 square feet, it's easy to believe this. Moreover, it's a clean, well-run, all-male 24-hour spa and cruise ground with a helpful and well-trained staff - you'd be hard-pressed (so to speak) to find a better bathhouse. Page 15.

Another of Chelsea's rather garish sex-toy and porn stores, the Blue Store (206 8th Ave.) has garnered its share of bad press since it opened nearly a decade ago, first stirring the ire of neighbors who complained about its relentless blue-neon facade and the neighborhood's seeming excess of such establishments. Then a couple of years ago cops shuttered the place for following a prostitution sting. The store has cleaned up its act some and is now a great source of gay erotica, lube, and such. Page 17.
It takes a little effort to find it, but the gay beach on Treasure Island in greater St. Petersburg is one of the loveliest stretches of sand in the region. Years ago a gay nightclub along the beach, called Bedrocks, drew revelers to this narrow spot backed by dunes. The club closed eons ago, but this area now generally known as Sunset Beach remains popular with gay guys and lesbians, especially on weekend afternoons. Here's how to reach this beautiful spot.

The long-running Unicorn (277 W. 22nd St., 212-924-2921) gay porn palace, located conveniently beside Barracuda gay bar and just around the corner from newer porn shops like Blue Store, Rainbow Station, and Pride NYC. The Unicorn has long been known for its significant selection of blue movies as well as its private video booths. It's a bit sleazier in feel than its 8th Avenue neighbors, which can be good or bad depending on your outlook. Page 45.

The club is especially popular during Sunday at the Rainbow, a lively gathering on the club's patio, and the theater shows adult all-male movies 24/7.

By far the most popular gay beach in Hawaii, and one of the most scenic and well-known in the world, Queen's Surf Beach is a relatively secluded stretch of sand in the heart of Waikiki, but along a section with no direct hotel frontage - this accounts for the fact there's more privacy and fewer families here than to the north or south. The beach here draws a mostly gay-male crowd, although certainly not exclusively so, as plenty of lesbians and straights seeking seclusion tan their hides here.

This is part of the well-reputed chain of Steamworks bathhouses, which has additional locales in Chicago, Berkeley, and Toronto. Of the two gay bathhouses in town, Steamworks has a more diverse following - pretty much all types of cruisy guys frequent this one, from younger club kids to older guys. Page 29.

Although there are no gay bathhouses within San Francisco city limits, per a 1984 court order that eliminated them, the city does have a couple of popular gay sex clubs, including Eros, which is on the edge of the Castro on Market Street - it's close to the Mission and Hayes Valley, by the busy Church Street Corridor. Eros has been going strong for many years and has the feel of a gay bathhouse, but without private rooms. There is a sauna, showers, steam rooms, and professional massage available. Page 68.
Part of a chain of gay bathhouses with franchises in Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Orlando, and St. Louis, the rather grand Club Fort Lauderdale is often ranked among the most lavish, well-kept, and attractive bathhouses in the country. This downtown establishment has a large gym with first-rate equipment, a nicely decorate pool area and with a sundeck, and plenty of well-decorated lounges and common areas. Page 5.

Does Palm Springs have Gay Bathhouses and Saunas? Not exactly - you will find that many of the city's gay, clothing-optional men's resorts permit (or at least turn a blind eye to) sexual activity around the grounds. But in nearby Cathedral City, where laws and zoning are considered more lax, you will find the region's closest thing to a gay sex club, The Barracks, which is a cruising-encouraged fetish and leather bar and hangout will a hugely popular following.

For more than 75 years, the very convivial White Horse Inn bar has served the gay and lesbian community of the Bay Area, catering to college students from nearby U Cal Berkeley, visiting queers from across the Bay Bridge in San Francisco, and regular Janes and Joes in the grittier city of Oakland. The still-festive bar is in Oakland, right by the Berkeley border. These days it keeps busy by holding a variety of cool theme nights. It also has a delightful patio area, perfect on a warm evening.

And you thought all those fresh-faced, lithe, shirtless guys were talking to you simply because you're irresistibly fascinating? Well, this may be true, but if you find yourself showered with attention during your visit to Prague's Escape Club, in Nove Mesto just a short walk from Wenceslas Square, consider that many - if not most - of the man-boy creatures in this saucy basement nightclub are looking to initiate business relations with you.
Sadly, the venerable neighborhood hangout Dick's Bar closed toward the end of 2007, after many years serving the East Village gay community. Few gay bars in this part of the city enjoyed a longer run than this cozy, offbeat establishment known for its kick-ass juke box. It stood at the corner of E. 12th Street and 2nd Avenue. Page 7.
