    "Restrictions Relaxed for Gay Bathhouses, Sex Venues

    The new ordinance will not affect San Francisco’s COVID-19 reopening timeline.

    by Grace Z. Li • 07/24/2020 4:02 pm - Updated 07/24/2020 4:02 pm


    Gay bathhouses could have an easier time returning to San Francisco, after the board of supervisors approved an ordinance that would ease restrictions for adult sex venues on July 21 with a unaminous vote.

    This will amend the Heath Code, requiring the Director of Health to “adopt minimum health and safety standards” for commercial adult sex venues. It will also remove decades-old policies that required these businesses to monitor sexual activities and prohibited private rooms and locked doors.

    These regulations were put in place in 1984, when the AIDS crisis was devastating gay communities in San Francisco. They specifically targeted sex clubs and gay bathhouses, and while sex clubs eventually reopened in the city after shuttering their doors, gay bathhouses never did, according to the Bay Area Reporter.

    That could change after the COVID-19 pandemic is over (this new ruling will not affect the city’s reopening timeline). The ordinance, led by Supervisor Rafael Mandelman, will help “decriminalize sexuality” according to a press release by the San Francisco AIDS Foundation.

    “It’s time for regulations that were put in place at a time of fear and a lack of knowledge to catch up with the progress we’ve made in the fight to end AIDS,” Joe Hollendoner, CEO of San Francisco AIDS Foundation, said in the press release. “With PrEP, U=U and other advancements in sexual health, bathhouse restrictions are antiquated and stigmatizing.”

    So..., this virus apparently does not transmit in gay bath houses.

    That defies all known logic. Are we in a giant simulation?

    They now understand that the American people, as a whole, are not cut from the same cloth as our forefathers.

    Gays fought the city over this back in the Reagan administration, then it was a virus that caused immune deficiency.

    They are used to dodging HIV/AIDS. Covid aint nothing to them.

    If that's what they think, then they are stupid AF. Immuno-compromised people are among those hit the hardest from this disease. I guess in San Francisco copping a nut with some random stranger is more important than remaining alive.

    They should worry about AIDS not COVID.

    Yep, this is REALLY STUPID. A bunch of immunosuppressed people congregating in close proximity during an epidemic. What could go wrong? If we really had a true Department of Health in our cities, this would not happen.

    "social distancing" is 6 feet, not 6 inches.

    It's ok to take it up the butt from a stranger, put it up in some other stranger's butt, or to put your mouth on a stranger's johnson or have your johnson sucked by a stranger. You can even assemble with a bunch of strangers and commit all kinds of crimes like burning, looting, rioting, attacking police, and all that's ok here in the great state of California but don't you dare go to church or the beach, that would be dangerous and wrong.

    And your "non-essential" hair salon, gym, or swimming pool, don't you dare open that you closed-minded, selfish, nationalist, racist, misogynistic, homophobic, racist, fascist, racist, Republican, racist old white man.
