    Gay sex forces closure of store toilets
    October 30, 2006 - 3:24PM

    The closure of customer toilets in a Myer store due to rampant homosexual activity has exposed a massive list of venues being used by members of a gay website as hook-up points.

    Among the places listed as meeting spots for men "cruising for sex", on squirt.org, is the Royal Australian Air Force's Richmond base and Sydney Opera House's toilets.

    Management at Myer's Sydney city store in Pitt Street were forced to close its level one toilet to the public because homosexuals were using the facility as a meeting point, often having sex in full view of other horrified users.

    A Myer spokesman, Mark West, confirmed he had heard that the retailer had been mentioned on squirt.org, which men used to arrange meetings at the toilet, and one month ago the store's management decided to make it a staff-only facility.

    The website claims to list more than 15,000 locations around Australia "where gay and bisexual guys meet for sex" and still has the Myer city store's toilet listed as a meeting place. A search of the site yielded hundreds of well-known Sydney buildings, parks and beaches.

    A spokeswoman for the Department of Defence said she would look into the matter after being told about the RAAF listing, and possibly make a comment by 5pm.

    A Myer staff member who spoke to smh.com.au said she had seen men running out of the toilet alerting employees about homosexual activity, while others had complained about being propositioned.

    "I wouldn't let my friend's young son go in there, no way. I was really worried about his safety," she said. "There were men going in and out all the time. You'd see them come out, and say 'Woops, I forgot my mobile or wallet', and then go back in. I'd see men sitting on the chair near the toilet just waiting.

    "It's been happening for years. I know they were making plans on a website to meet here."

    A security guard in the store said the toilet had to be closed because "we had problems with people in there ... there were safety issues". Asked if the problem was due to men using the toilet as a hook-up point, he replied: "The whole city has got that problem."

    Mr West said: "There has been a range of security concerns surrounding that toilet and we have closed it pending a review. There were some customer concerns about anti-social activity in there. Ideally we wouldn't have had to close it; it is a temporary measure.

    "We are reviewing security, there is certainly no risk for customers."

    Other prominent places used by subscribers of the website include the toilets of Westfield stores and Marrickville Metro, the library at the University of NSW, various Fitness First gyms, and Bankstown Airport's rest area.

    Comment is awaited from various Fitness First gyms and Westfield stores.

    Another is the Crows Nest Community Centre, which it seems is extremely popular, with 100 comments posted from the website's users regarding the site. The centre's chief executive officer, Michelle Boston, was unaware of any incidents in the listed ground floor toilets, and was appalled when told by smh.com.au.

    "This is awful," she said. "We have so many vulnerable people that come here."

    Within 30 minutes of being informed, Ms Boston phoned smh.com.au back and said: "I have taken immediate action. All toilets are now locked. People will have to report to reception to get a key. All children who use the facility will have to be accompanied by a parent. We care about our community and do not want them put at risk."

    I wouldnt say just Sydney . A walk thru the local Adult Shop and a quick squizz at the bulliten board is enough to have you think twice about walking thru certain public gardens.

    It is discrimination.

    Myer should have gay men only toilets as well.

    My understanding though is that in our tolerant society what is going on is to be considered normal behaviour?

    So I'm wondering why these normal men are being vilified, discriminated against, blamed for the closure of a public facility and described as a "risk" to children.

    Any ideas?

    Because it's in public. If a dude and chick are having a dig in public the same thing would happen. Except instead of cringing, I'd be laughing.

    As if you blokes don't know hetero couples that have had a quickie in the toilets, or done it yourselves for that matter!

    And everyone stoped and stared. They don't run off in all directions screaming at the top of their lungs.

    the difference being these are 'couples' you are talking about (as in they already know each other)- the blokes meeting up at toilets don't know each other and are randoms rocking up looking for thrills...you got to wonder about just rocking up and dropping it on the first person you see in the toilet- thats a bit different....I'm pretty farken far from a homophobe but I wouldn't let any of my nephews use those toilets!

    Simple solution roster the hours in the disabled toilet so that it is shared evenly between the disabled and the poofters. Those people in Wheelchairs have had it too easy too long. That way you have a Male, Female and a Disabled/Poofters toilet (you would need an appropriate emblem to be designed for the latter) The disabled toilet is a much underused resource that should be shared by these minority groups.

    No they dont run off screaming. They knock your clothes off and throw them off the balcony of the club.

    So men and women just just fall in lust with each other, drop the clothes and go for it in a toilet somewhere?

    Or is this random sort of thing more prevalent in the gay sub-culture?

    What are you suggesting?

    I doubt it would be prevalent for heteros.
