Spartacus Sauna Guide 8th Edition
By Bruno Gmunder
A complete listing of bathhouses and saunas
throughout the world.
This edition is a great improvement
over the previous ones. Slick pages and full-color ads and photos.
Besides the obvious name, address and phone
number the listing also usually has some price information as well
as the bathhouse hours.
The 48/6 number after the little "coat
hanger" symbol indicates that there are 48 lockers and 6
cubicle/rooms at this location.
Many listings also contain Bus/Metro
routes and a brief description of the type of crowd usually found
there. The other little icon/pictures represent the amenities found
at each location.
Such as: steam, sauna, massage, Jacuzzi, food
service, gym, swimming pool etc.
Business listings [including
saunas & bathhouses] for USA, Canada, Southern Africa, Australia
& some cities in Europe. 80% of the guide is the United States.
This guide contains beautiful
and easy to understand full color maps for most of the large
cities and gay tourist destinations.
As thick as a telephone book,
this 1400 page guide has listings for every gay friendly
business imaginable throughout the world. Including, of course,
every bathhouse and sauna club. Filled with full color ads.
New edition released every
More compact than the Damron
City Guide, this contains basically the same information except
without the handy maps. The only information found here that is
different is that for every city and town it lists "cruisy
areas" such as truck stops, beaches, parks and public streets.
Includes bathhouse & sauna listings.

complete listings of nude beaches anywhere. It also has longitude
and latitude numbers which you can use to pinpoint the beach using
Google Earth. Plus detailed directions on how to best access the
beach. It covers beaches worldwide.
It also has hotels, resorts and
campgrounds that are gay friendly and permit nudity.
The guide, however, does NOT
feature bathhouse listings.
