Hey YOU! Do you want to celebrate my birthday with me? Better yet, do you want to show me some up close n’ personal birthday lovin’?
(Okay, my birthday is nine days before this, but shh, I’m running with it.)
If you’re in Vancouver, come join me at M2M on November 10th for the next sTeam bathhouse event!! M2M is a men’s playspace run by the same owners as F212, the bathhouse I currently work at. Both M2M and F212 are always relatively trans-inclusive, but this night will be their first official all-genders event!
Here is the info provided on the Facebook event page, written by Pussy Liquor and Shayne Forster:
This DARK, SEXY venue features a open playroom, glory holes, large steam room and open showers, double rooms, single rooms, and porny lounge area.
Wear your shorts, lingerie, boxer briefs, nothin’ but a towel & a smile or WHATEVER YOU WANNA. Dress to feel sexy in this dark, cruisy environment!
We are VERY excited to partner with M2M to produce the very FIRST mixed genders event at their venue! Thanks to our partnership with M2M we are able to offer a bigger & sexier space, reduced cover prices, extended hours and increased accessibility!
Safer sex gear provided! M2M has a condom and lube station maintained by the folks at Health Initiative for Men and our event organizers will provide nitrile (non-latex) gloves.
M2M has a “no in-and-outs” policy for leaving the venue.
Note that while M2M is a trans-inclusive space and this event is promoted by trans and trans-savvy folks, venue regulars coming into the space may not be as well-versed in trans lingo or politics. En masse we’ll educate the masses!
Our event is promoted for 8pm to 4am, but M2M is a 24-hour facility and you will not be asked to leave until your 8-hour rental is up no matter what time you arrive.
M2M has a discreet plain black entrance which can be seen here:
M2M is located at the intersection of Davie St (Vancouver’s uber gay central) & Granville St (Vancouver’s frat guy central) and is on or very near most major transit routes downtown.
A deposit is required for entry; deposit may consist of $10, photo ID or a set of house keys.
REGULAR ROOM: $19
DELUXE ROOM: $29
SLING ROOM: $29
Towels are available at no extra charge.
Rates above include drop-in rate and require showing ID for venue accountability purposes; anonymity is an extra $2.
Reduced rates are offered to M2M members, but we remind our guests that this is usually a men’s facility, so you may want to self-identify as a man before investing in $10 membership. M2M and sister facility F212 are trans man inclusive year-round. More info on membership can be found here:
Front entrance has 18 stairs, 4 feet wide, with each step 7.5 inches tall. Back entrance has 5 steps, 5 feet wide, with each step 7.5 inches tall. The back entrance also has a platform LIFT with a rail which is inspected annually for maintenance. Doorways are 53 inches wide. Once in the space, it is all one level. Behind the gloryhole area, there is a bit of a bump. The elevated area is a circumfrence of about 30 inches. There is an accessible washroom but there is no support bar. Other washrooms contain 2 separate stalls with doors and 2 standing urinals with no dividers. The shower and steam room are both open floor plans with room to move around in a wheelchair or with canes. If you think the back entrance is where you’ll be coming in, please message one of the event organizers and we’ll make sure to have the lift ready if necessary. We’ll also have information at the front door entrance for getting around back and notifying one of us.
sTeam BATHHOUSE ETIQUETTE:
- Hydrate! If you’re getting hot, keep your body happy with plenty of water.
- Use barriers! Safer sex is sexy.
- Avoid silicone lube! It’s tough to clean off floors… and slippery!
- Consent is sexy, make sure you have it.
- People who are fucking in open spaces generally know they’re being watched, so indulge your inner voyeur if you like!
- No street clothes. Generally people at M2M wear no more than a towel, but we encourage you to feel comfortably sexy!
- We strongly discourage visible intoxication. Disrespectful aggression will be ejected from the venue. (Respectful aggression encouraged)
- Let us know if you have a problem – we wanna know so we can help you out. Our team will be wearing wristbands and there is an M2M staff member available.
If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback, please contact the admin team!
Our objective is to promote trans awareness to all communities. We aim to highlight what it means to be a trans man in our society, and the joys and struggles that come with it. We hope that showcasing local female-to-male transgender individuals using photos and biographies will establish a personal connection and provide some understanding into the lives of trans men.
