Dress Down for Kids on TV's Third Annual Bathhouse Party

If you read about my first time in a bathhouse and wondered what would happen if you went, wonder no longer!

Kids on TV are presenting their third annual bathhouse party and it's being held at the very same place I went to, Spa Excess. I had no intention of ever going back but, in an intriguing twist on the regular night, women will be allowed and this is an opportunity I can't pass up. I have all kinds of questions...

Will women be allowed to rent rooms? How will the regular patrons react? What are they going to play on the TVs? Most importantly, how does this change the rules inherent to the bathhouse experience?

A few people on various forums have been asking some questions of their own, most of which are variations on, "What's it going to be like?" and "Do I have to get naked?"

The answers are very simple. You won't know unless you go and you'll have more fun if you are.

In addition to a performance by our favorite queercore band, the joint will be thumpin' and bumpin' to the electro beats of Man Parrish and the $10 entrance fee not only gets you access to this party but a locker and a towel as well.

Whether you're a regular, an opportunistic voyeur or a fan of the band, this kind of party only happens once a year and will hopefully channel the spirit of Vazaleens past and not end up being a bunch of self-concious scenesters in bathing suits striking their best slutty poses.

Having known Roxanne back in her days at OCAD, I'm betting on the former. See you there!
