The Abandoned Pleasure House

“Explorers are aware that, every time they crack a new location, they become one of the ingredients of the mixture of the place, melding themselves into its fabric and capturing transitional moments within it.

A friend of mine who’s affiliated with a local urban exploration crew is currently studying overseas. That didn’t stop him from connecting me with one of his urbex-enthusing friends remotely to check out this abandoned gay sauna in Sydney. We visited the neglected hall of pleasure on Halloween – what better day? The place has kept many of its old furnishings and it easy to let the imagination run wild and concoct stories of the devilish delights the men of yesteryear must have indulged in here.
