In A Bathroom? Bathroom? Ewwwwww.

I live in a small community of about 15,000 with another, perhaps, 20,000 in the surrounding 'burbs. In other words, a very small community smack dab in the middle of British Columbia, or, 75 miles from the armpit of the universe.

Last week, visiting the local library, I had to water a horse and suddenly noticed the signs that said the washrooms were under survellience.

Huh? Turns out there are no cameras in the washrooms but there are outside and they are watching who goes in and out and how long they are there.

Why? It turns out they are being used "inappropriately."

In a library? In central British Columbia? You are shitting me.

Apparently not.

A recent tweet pointed me to this article written in a 'gay' online magazine. It makes my head spin.

Everytime I think society in general and gay culture in particular cannot drop any further into the sewer along comes another article proving that we are becoming sexually saturated and completely depraved as a nation.
In a bathroom? Ewwwwww.

LAPD Cracks Down On Gay Hook-Ups Happening At Downtown Los Angeles Library
Reading is sexy. But it’s been getting a whole lot sexier at a Los Angeles library.

The Los Angeles Downtown News reports that LAPD officials have been investigating a “surge of illicit sexual activity” taking place in the restrooms and other public areas at the Richard M. Riordan Central Library in downtown Los Angeles.

So far nine arrests for lewd conduct have been made since authorities launched their undercover investigation in January. They say all the arrests have been for sexual encounters between men, most of which involve one man jerking off while another man watches.
Sounds kinda hot. Although we’re not sure about the whole public restroom thing. Too many germs.

LAPD Capt. Mike Oreb seems genuinely baffled by the bathroom hook-up phenomenon. ”We’ve seen sexual activity in other places throughout the region, parks and public bathrooms,” he told the paper. “[We’re] not sure why anyone’s decided to focus on the bathrooms at the library.”

Dennis Romero, a writer for LA Weekly, says that the downtown library has been a popular gay cruising spot for years.  It even has a page on, a NSFW website dedicated to locating and reviewing public hook-up spots. The library’s profile describes it as the “best cruising location in LA” with “restrooms on every floor.” It also notes that anyone can hook-up there, and “you don’t need a library card unless you are checking something out.”
Something other than another guy, that is.
