Gay Messages in the Men's room.

Any guys ever wondered what prompted the rush of gay public bathroom messages starting about 16 years ago or so? I clearly remember it starting as a teenager where I lived and it continues to this day. Am I the only one who noticed this all of the sudden starting to happen? What do you think of it? And are there any lesbian messages in public Women's rooms?

In case you have no clue what I'm talking about, here are what I've been seeing in almost every public bathroom since about 1987:

Tap Foot for BJ...Show Hard

Want Head be in this stall 3:30Pm Wednesdays

I want to suck uncut cock (in the center of a heart shape no less)

and the funniest:



THANK YOU SIR!!!!!!!!!

I find them amusing but have wondered why the tell they just started showing up in mens's room as a teenager and persist to this day. You have any memorable gay personals in the men's rooms to share? Does this happen in your town or is it just the East Coast? I've lived in PA, VA, and FL and I've seen this everywhere I've lived.

*years later I found out this was Golden Showers.
I happen to like the words "fuck", "cock", "pussy", "tits", "cunt", "twat", "shit" and even "bitch". As long as I am not using them to describe you, don't go telling me whether or not I can/should use them...that is, if you want me to continue refraining from using them to describe you. ~Prince

Well, hmmm.

I've seen a few "notices" but I've no desire to explore this particular sub-culture.

I guess interstate rest stops are supposed to be good places for this sort of activity, especially at night. But I also hear the cops know this too.
"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." – C.

Although this was a guys question, I thought I'd put in my 2 cents

Fortunate for me I've never been witness to such messages. I've only come across these ones:: "For a good time call, so and so, phone #", "So and so, gives good head", "So and so, likes so and so", "This teacher is a bitch/bastard"

While at uni I used to work at a amusement park. WE were alerted to the fact lots of gay men were meeeting in the toilets and 'performing'.
As tyou know the public toilet walls do not meet the ground so we were instucted to look at the feet in the cublicals.
This was do to parents lossing it over these going- on esp with kids around.

We then learnt to counter this one would stand in a platic bag so you could not see one pair of feet.

WTF toilets are bad at the worst of times and during the day to meet and 'perform 'in them is horrid, not a turn on.

I got stroppy as it is unfair that children get exposed to this.
Computers allow us to make more mistakes at a faster rate than any other man-made thing, with the exception of handguns and tequila.

Just in case you or anyone else isn't aware, those ARE real. I personally know people who have run into those situations on accident.

I read some stories from a guy who used to work in a large bookstore, and one guy was known to write these sorts of messages, and one time he even drilled a hole in one of the stalls. The management then decided to block the hole with a steel plate, and the guy then wrote, in permanent marker, "Was this really necessary?"
My immediate response would be to write "Oh yeah."

I guess it takes all kinds. I'm not gay, but I know that I sure as hell wouldn't be stickin' "Lil' Bill" into any woman that acknowledged a bathroom stall "request". I can't imagine that a gay man would be any more inclined to do so. Somehow I don't think that it's a "gay thing", so much as it's a "sick thing". My opinion...my $.02.

Those messages are messed up; I don't get it. I guess if you feel repressed you have to take it up somewhere, public bathrooms present a psuedo-anonymous way to do this? At least I'm guessing. Ever see Dumb and Dumber? Funny scene in that movie about gay messages in the bathroom.

I noticed these a lot more in public restrooms at my college, but they are everywhere (I'm in PA). Agree with others this is an extremely dirty practice... but what can you really do to stop it?

This has been going on for a lot more than 16 years... Holo, you probably only started noticing the messages when you became a teenager and knew what you were looking at.

Anonymous sex with many different partners would have been no problem before the 80s (ie before AIDS).

I ran into one of these situations as a teenager by accident one day in the public restroom at Sears when I used to work there. I was on the toilet and notice all these "messages". Next thing I know there is an eyeball looking through a small hole in the stall at me and mumbles something.

Needless to say I started flipping out. I should have busted the door down, and stomped this dude. I didn't tell anyone as I was too embarassed. Man, i had the sickest feeling in my stomach the rest of the day.

Oh well, now I look back on it and laugh. Freaks!

Just because George Michaels is gay he automatically knows about these things?

IIRC he got busted for blowing a guy in a public restroom.

Rest stops on the highway are famous for homosexual activity and messages like that in the stalls.

I have a couple friends who are truckers and through communication with other Truckers on the CB, they know which stops are to be avoided if they don't want to accidentally end up in an awkward situation.

It is a shame that anyone deems it necessary to mark on, write on or otherwise deface property like that. I have seen a lot of it lately myself and find it totally disgusting. A some point, young children will use these facilities and be subjected to this. Also, the costs involved in removing the graffitti from these places has to come from taxes.
When all else fails, QUIT.

Yeah, I agree it amounts to vandalism. How many more times do I have to see the "ON" scracthed out from the word "BUTTON" on hand dryers? That wasn't funny when I was ten. Who does that?

I used to travel a lot by car and never paid much attention the the notes. It bothers me a lot when there are holes drilled in the stalls often the one next to the urinals. I always stuff toilet paper into them.

I've only seen the "Call ###-#### and ask for _____" messages. I try to call them and, depending of my mood, either mess with them or inform them of how I got their number so they can do somethign about it if they wish.

always thought is was someone just trying to be funny. but just imagine the look on someone's face that reads one that says be in this stall at 11pm 2/23/04 for wild animal anal sex and he realizes that its 11pm 2/23/04. i see why someone would do it, but only if they don't have a life.
